I don't think most Legacy players are necessarily against giving other folks the chance for a price break. That's up to SE to decide.
Considering how neurotic some Legacy members get on the Lodestone, I'd be positively astonished if there weren't at least a half-dozen shirt-ripping nerd rage threads started over there should such an offer be made. At least I wouldn't want all that popcorn I have ready for the occasion to go to waste.
What I found interesting about the main forums, was the reaction to people's reactions. Everyone keeps posting how their missed opportunity to gain legacy status was the most sympathetic one. The first post wasn't even met with an aggressive response, yet after the 10th post, people were supposed to just respond with great kindness and understanding. So now, legacy members are these elite bullies, because they're tired of the pointless complaining.
There's nothing abnormal about seeing something you're interested in, fulfilling the requirements to get it, and getting annoyed when a person who didn't qualify complain over and over that their accomplishments, which have nothing to do with it, should be equal to what was asked to earn said <Insert prize here>. The very same thing happened when they gave away free relic weapons for just clicking your bed. 3-5 threads (hundred pages+) spawned with people asking to keep "just one" relic (You know, for just playing this crappy game this long). These same people who didn't qualify for it in game. Yet, when people who did the work spoke out, they were "elitist scum," who want to be special.
People are allowed to post whatever they like. Just as people are allowed to flame the hell out of them, when they post something that makes no sense. I wonder what forums would be like, if people could post idiotic things and get kind responses.
Trolls might cease to exist!
