The group is currently only focused on gaming, though this is subject to change in the future. It's purpose is to unite members of Hack Forums that share a passion for gaming, and to provide them with a place where they may interact, get to know each other, and share discussions on various games. Status does not matter in this group. Whether you are Ub3r, L33t, or a non-upgraded member is irrelevant, as long as you share a passion for gaming.
In April 2013, WiFi. created a thread stating that he was selling his group. Vinnie decided to capitalize on the opportunity and made WiFi. an offer. Group ownership was officially transferred in May 2013, and Legacy was open for recruitment that same day.
The group was changed later into the Game of Thrones-based group The Lannisters.
