Why don't they just use a /claim method like every other MMO?

I'm not familiar with that action... can someone explain what /claim means? (or maybe it's a sarcastic type joke that I just don't understand.)

/claim...back in 1991 I played a Wheel of Time based MUD through a telnet client. When you rolled up a new character you would /claim (a typed command) and your starting gear for you character class would appear from the gods in your inventory. I'm assuming this is what was referenced and that some games still use this type of thing.

Everquest 2 uses /claim to deliver in-game items that have come available with each new expansion. When you type /claim, a window pops up with a number of items in it. Some are only available for one character on the server, so you have to choose carefully who you'd like to claim the item with. Other things (such as xp potions, etc) are available to be claimed once per character.
