Is it getting harder to complete conquests?

Is it just me who thinks that earning conquest points is getting harder and harder? I mean this week I have no idea how I'm going to earn enough points to complete my conquest objective on one character, not to mention all my alts. For the first time I seriously thought about de-subbing. If this continues I may as well do that.

I mean this week is basically about flashpoints, so if you dont for flashpoints this week is going to seem hard. The point of the objectives (and renewed focus on running objectives) was to get more people to do more things after all.

Really gonna unsub cause you can't get your conquests done on all your characters? Sounds like an empty threat but I wish you luck in your war on making conquests easier. I never get mine done but maybe after your crusade I will.

I have no idea what a conquest is. I rack up thousands of these points, but what are they even for?

If you play mostly guild-less solo, they give a packet of rewards (noted on the Conquest tab on the Mission Log panel) on each character that accumulates 50K points (formerly 15K) between some time onTuesday and about a week later (the exact day and time of the beginning and end of the cycle has changed over time, but I think that it's currently 6pm GMT / UTC on Tuesday until 11am the following Tuesday). This personal reward arrives in a mission-completion reward popup at the moment you make the 50K target, not at the end of the cycle.

If you play in a guild, the guild leader can select a planet from the list and "invade" it, and *then* if the accumulated totals earned by all the guild-member characters during that cycle exceeds the planet-specific guild total, all individual member-characters who *also* made their personal totals will get a planet-specific reward at the end of the cycle (approximately). If your guild makes the highest point total for that planet (highest that week, not a new total record), you win the planet, and the following week, all players who go there will see that your guild controls the planet.

EDIT: The first guild win you get for a particular planet on your legacy grants a "Conqueror of {planet}" legacy title. END

Certain high-tier crafting materials can only be acquired from conquest rewards.

EDIT: Important: the structure of Conquest heavily favours large guilds, especially ones with lots of active players, and even more after 6.0 than before.

It's mostly crafting mats, although there's a "sell-for-credits" token, some actual credits(1), a packet of XP or Renown XP, and some crafting-oriented (material-gathering) decorations. Mouse over the rewards in section 3 of your image, although that's an old version of the panel.

https://i.imgur.com/a8fAaWN.jpg shows the personal panel on a below-75 character, showing the rewards upper right:
* (Round thing) A box containing three or four material-gathering decorations.
* (Yellow triangle) A token that can be (and should be) (and is intended to be) sold to a vendor for credits.
* (Purple swirly) Two "Solid Resource Matrix" crafting materials for Grade 11 (601+) crafting.
* (Blue/grey) Blue Jawa materials tokens. Exchange for materials or companion gifts at the Jawa vendors in the Cartel Bazaar area of the Fleet.
* (Green/grey) Green Jawa tokens. Exchange in the same way.

https://i.imgur.com/fN5xzlA.jpg is the same panel for a level 75 character. The Jawa tokens are replaced by Tech Fragments and a random-gear box.

(1) Yes, a token you can sell for credits *and* some actual credits.

Read this thread and for kicks and giggles logged in on my main. I did "normal" game stuff by doing Onderon, CZ-198, and Ziost dailies. No FPs or anything.

Typical gameplay: looted everything, chatted with guildies, had an objective stolen by a scummy player so had to wait around for a respawn, had to switch instances because of broken quest objectives, etc.

Total time: 1 hour and 15 mins

CQ pts, with boost: Just over 24k

So based on that it would take roughly 2 hours to make 50k.

However, I ran a SINGLE FP after the 3 world dailies and made another 16k, so I'm at 40k after just an hour and a half of gameplay.

Anyone who says 50k is hard just isn't playing the game, simple as that.
He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man.

I did personal conquest for the first time last week, purely because I'd been doing the Bounty Hunting stuff and kept getting notifications of having completed a Conquest objective which made me look into it more. It wasn't bad. This week the big points do rely on group play but you can also craft stuff, run any KOTFEET chapter, do Battle of Ilum each day on any difficulty (thus solo/story too) and so on. Plus just doing game activities like killing mobs, Onderon dailies etc. will net you points too. A lot of that is repeatable too, either 100x per day if you want to, or daily reset, so while the point reward may be smaller it does add up quick.
