While this divinely abundant awarding of conquest points is amazing. With experience i know there is a nerf football in conquests future as this is the pattern with such things.

That being said what if only quest mission completion was the only manner in which these new conquest points are awarded. Instead of mobs allowing for conquest at all. This may balance the overwhelming awesomeness of conquest scoring that was the past two weeks.

Hey there

What you are suggesting would completely defeat the purpose of this change which is that people can earn conquest points by doing whatever they like doing in the game. Just because you like completing quests doesn't mean everyone does.


Kind regards

I'm on the fence about the OP's request. This is the first full day of "regular" points being seen. It's much too early to be calling for nerfs or changes even if the intentions are possibly good (pre-emptively offering suggestions).

However, to THIS point, quest completion points are more than just "quests" from npcs for side quests or planet quests. It also includes bonus missions from heroics, and many other areas of the game.

While true, we do still get conquest points for EVERY single warzone match and arena battle, and every single GSF match.
With you now getting extra conquest points for the "win 4 matches" mission (now also a quest completion for an extra conquest point award) and the 20 weekly wins in the same category....I'd bet, for the first time in a LONG time, that conquest via PVP and conquest via strictly heroics (as an example) are about equal.

Well, for pve players, all they need is to do CZ 198 weekly + home planet heroics + capital planets heroics under 30mins = 15k conquest points. For pvp players, 6 warzones matches later and an hour later, we have not hit even close to the 15k conquest points

That was true, last week.

This week, last night I did this.
cz-198 ~2.5k conquest points
Ilum Heroic 1k conquest points for event and ~500 conquest points for heroic value
Ilum Gree mission 2k conquest points

6k points for about 20-25 minutes

Then...500 conquest points for each heroic, ~500 conquest points for each bonus mission while doing heroics.

Sure, the first few toons you'll get rampage points, but depending on WHICH heroics you choose, you may not even kill that many mobs.

Yes, exactly how it should be for pve players. We can agree that the patch greatly boost pve players rate of getting conquest points. so why not also help pvp players by boosting their conquest points as well by adding objectives during a match? Maybe this will motivate players to actually contribute more rather than farming 8 medals and then afk one corner as well to get the cxp rewards at the end of match.
