The conquest change is great in my humble opinion. I can understand the arguments that it belittles the efforts of those of you who are not in the top % of arena but you should be doing arena because you like to do it. You should be doing rated bg's because you like to do them. Your reward is that you gain access to higher level gear at a much faster pace along with enjoying the game in the way you like best. The reason I feel this change is great is this: As a player who goes into pug bgs who tries to do their best everytime and is focused on completing objectives and not stroking my epeen, I feel I am handicapped at contributing at my max level due to gear limitiations because I do not do arena or rbg. Why should others like me suffer?I enjoy pug bgs because I perform at my best in them. In an arena setting or rbg setting the pressure to perform changes the way I play in a negative manner. My comfort level is changed simply because I do not want to let this group of people I am aquainted with down. In a pug setting its not that I feel I dont have to perform at the same level its just that the pressure is not the same and I am completely at ease in this setting allowing me to perform at my best. With this being said why should I not be allowed to cap my conquest on a weekly basis just like those of you doing arena or rbgs? I'm working just as hard dealing with the afk guy in the gy, the mid farmers who let the flags go by, the guy calling everyone in the bg a &*%$!@ and still pulling off wins. I primarily play healers, when you do take a break from being the king of arena or rbgs and you just want to do a quick bg wouldnt you like it more if that healer running next to you is in Ruthless rather then Vicious? Bring on more premade groups to my house lol. Usually these groups (some being rbg rejects) steamroll pugs because of the difference in gear and not because they are some highly trained task force using advanced communcation not available to us poor scrub puggers. The satisfaction of winning against them now is GREAT and it does happen and now with this change the chance to do so will occur with more frequency. Do you really think that the 5 man premades will only occur on the opposite faction as you?
