Thank you for adding Eternal Championship to conquest. How many points does each round give? How much for daily?

Are there any plans to increase the numbers of planets to invade each week? This would give more guilds an opportunity to capture a planet.

While the new additions are nice, they don't address the core problems with conquest which is legacy restrictions. I, like many players, can't play every day, but on days I can play, I can often play for several hours. But the current once per day per legacy means I can't make up for days I missed on days I can play. I also have characters in 4 guilds (it used to be 5 but I pulled one out of a conquest guild because it isn't feasible to run characters in more than one conquest guild anymore.) Legacy restrictions mean I have to pick which guild gets the conquest points instead of letting me play in my guilds equally.

The way things are, I can deal with the hamstringing of alts. I don't like it, and it has severely cut back on my enjoyment of conquest and largely gutted the conquest guild I'm still in, but I can deal with. I get my minimum on my one remaining conquest toon and then ignore conquest for the rest of the week. But, and this is a really big but, tying guild xp to conquest points greatly magnifies the problems with legacy restrictions. Now my three non-conquest guilds will suffer. They will be starved of guild xp because all of my conquest points will go to my one conquest guild. My guildmates don't do activities that yield conquest points. I'm the type of person who would grind conquest like crazy to level those guilds up, but oops, can't, legacy lockout!

If I want to level all of my guilds by grinding insane amounts of conquest objectives, I should be able to! I like running back to back Bounty Hunter quests. I like running back to back heroics. I would happily run back to back EC. I should be able to get xp for all of my guilds for my efforts, not just one. If this isn't the way you want us to play, then separate guild leveling from conquest and have it straight up earned xp/cxp that counts!

Were there any changes made to which quests were repeatable other than the addition of the eternal championship?

From what I remember from the steam, it would be “going back much closer to the way it was pre 5.8”

Has anyone looked at the perks to see what “focusing on a play style” does for the conquest for the guild? I am on the road for a couple more days but wanted to see if anyone had looked at this pieces yet.

However, the new things on the list are... simply the most unplayable things in the game. Chapters? Really? Eternal championship maybe, for strange ppl that like standing around while some lady shouts on the background but.. chapters?!?! Why!?!? I swore I shall never play them again, that boring the are.
Chapters : all players aren't done with them. I'm a relatively new player (a little less than 1 year) and have only 1 toon with all chapters and expansions completed. Progressing my other toons is very difficult because I do commit to the guilds I'm in and do my best to complete my weekly conquest objective before moving to my personal progression. So knowing I can progress my toons AND help the guild at the same time, what a relief !

I like the idea for the chapters and kills for newer players/toons. All players don't have 50 toons with full 248 gear level and all completed the Nathema Conspiracy (exagerating a bit, but it is to explain my point). In the past few months, the more I commit to the guild, the less i can progress my other toons, because I focus only on my most advanced toons as they are the only ones who can really help the guild. On Imperial side for example, I have completed Ilum on only 1 toon ; no Makeb, no Revan, no chapters. My time goes to helping the Pub guild by reaching my conquest goals, then advance my Pub side toon story bit by bit with what time I have left.

And as some others suggest : please remove the legacy limit.

They could also add some specific conquest goals for people leveling.

Ie, a lot of pvpers would like to see specific lowbie and mid pvp brackets get their own specific conquest goals. Not just the generic pvp ones.

This would encourage more people to play those brackets again and level Alts (this was something that died when 5.0 was added and they removed pvp Comms to gear).

imo it's too little too late the changes aren't going to help bring people back to the game wa to much is being focused on double xp people aren't learning how to actually play
raise the diffictity of fp and and the basic operations
reinstate the pay for skills

There are some interesting new additions to conquest, granted. But unless you are interested in grinding PVP, there is still limited per legacy items. I used to have so many characters and now there is no point in enjoying so many characters since it is still too difficult and time consuming to get conquest an more then 1 character a day. I am still waiting for you too bring back more instant repeatables that are not locked to daily legacy or once per week. we need just a little more freedom too complete more conquest in a week with multiple characters aside from crafting weeks. Please I want to make more characters and have fun pve pvp and conquest.

PS I mean really do we need to reset counter on npc dailies talk about asking us to grind 2x-3x the amount??
