I didn't get it either. I just hit 5th legacy this weekend and did not play another game. Turned it on today and didn't have the paw either. I think it somehow didn't read the level 1 5th legacy or something.
do you have the DLC? (just throwing another possibility out there to see why some people have it and others don't)
I have all of the DLC. Bought the game on day 1. I bought the season pass or whatever it was called for the DLC.
weird so it's not a rank thing nor the money spent on the game (DLC) and it's obviously not playtime since i've seen a couple players under level 10 (non legacy) with it ... i wonder what it is then
