The thing that bugs me the most about requests for veteran reward programs and "I need stuff for being here longer" is simply that those of us that have been here longer HAVE gotten extra stuff! True, it's not explicitly "veteran rewards," but there is clearly stuff that a new player will never have.The old school mounts as Stella points out.Mini-pets that are no longer attainable such as the Baby Blizzard Bear, Onyxia Whelpling, Spirit of Competition, various BlizzCon goodies and so on.Mounts that are no longer attainable.Events that will never been seen again like the Gates of AQ and the Zombie Invasion.Even the current SoR promotion gives CURRENT players more stuff than new/returning players. A reactivated member gets all the expansions. I've already got that. They get a level 80 character. I've got a level 85 one. They get a server/faction transfer. That's nothing special. All that's interesting about that is they get it for free. They're not getting any EXTRA stuff, they're just getting it easier. (Which doesn't bother me at all, but obviously bothers some people. Despite all that, once they are up to 85 and playing with me, I can ride around on a nifty spectral gryphon that this returning player can't get. The veteran player gets something the returning player does not. Sounds like a reward for current players to me. (The question is how valuable is that to you?)Is there a specific veteran rewards program that gives you stuff based on how long you have been subscribed? No. Do veteran players get more stuff than new or returning players? Absolutely.
