You guys can test it....I level with mostly PvP and my valor pretty much remains capped at my level. I'd like anyone to explain how I have had over a half a bar of valor into my next level IMMEDIATELY upon leveling.

I've made a point of checking my valor after leveling and have been far into the next valor level instantly. I've only tested this for a similar argument with guild mates who didn't think it was true either.

I'll try to catch it on my stream this week with one of my sub 50 characters that way it's recorded.

This is wrong, it just takes so little valor that if you level up in a pvp match the valor from that match carries over. Until about valor rank 45 it takes no more then 2 wins to gain a rank of valor.

In short, if you're level 35, the max valor you can have is 35, until you hit 36...and so on, and so on.
Ok, i see. Any idea how long it would take for me to get from 50 valour to 60, so i can get battlemaster gear? I assume it doesn't increase at quickly as before.

It's because the valor you receive from the match in which you level is already applied to the next level. But it's just the valor from that match. As you said you get out of a match and your valor bar is 1/2 full. If it was actually stacking you would get out of the match and it would be completely full, and when you dinged 50 you would see it jump up to like VL 54. It only takes like 3 matches to max valor level even at mid 40's, so it would make sense that as you leave the match you have 1/3 of your progress to the next level. Just as it also makes sense that if it only takes 3 matches to max valor, but 10 matches to go up a level you would have a LOT more saved up than just 1/3-1/2 of your next level if you in fact had 40 levels worth of stacking going on.
What we don't understand, we can make mean anything.

That would make sense. But is valor that easily obtainable that you can literally get half a bar from one match? I've had this happen... more than once. I assumed it had some kind of cap but beyond your level, or even a DR to where you're getting SOME of the valor past your level stacked but not all of it. It seems like a little much to have about a half bar into the next level.

That kinda answers that.... I guess I never noticed how easy valor is to get. Seemed a little excessive to level and instantly be half way into my next level. It only seemed logical that it was stacking. Of course with how much PvP I do I've never paid that much attention to it at higher levels. Pretty much stays maxed.

LOL... it cracks me up how much people enjoy telling someone they're wrong over the internet.

I don't get it... it's one thing to inform, but another attempt to crush someone's ego and dance on their self esteem. Seems like that's the goal. I don't take a bunch of strangers on the internet very seriously and could care less but I seem to be the minority.

I guess I have been guilty of it from time to time tho... I guess the troll inside never dies.

I meant me... I used to kill a lot of time at work trolling other sites and forums. I can't lie... it was fun but I guess I've officially become an old guy... the novelty has worn off.
