#1 - 2011/05/12 10:37:00 PMI hate to sort of break conduct, but this issue definitely needs some blue clarification, whether it be here or in the actual thread, but it's causing a massive stir (in the wrong direction) in the PvP community. My thread is not the only one, but the most coherent and active discussion without too much derailing seems to be occurring within it.

You can see that a lot of us are very unhappy (and/or confused) by this change. Here's the change in question.
The game now separately tracks different Conquest Point caps for Battlegrounds and Arenas. The cap for Arena rating will always be 2/3 of the cap for Battleground rating at any given Arena rating. Players may earn a total number of Conquest Points per week equal to the higher of these two caps, but once players have reached the cap for either Arenas or Battlegrounds, they can no longer earn Conquest Points from that source. Conquest Points from Battleground holidays only count toward the total Conquest Point cap.
I think I speak for (literally) the entire PvP community when I solemnly request a more decent explanation as to how this change is going to affect the game we all play. Reading that patch note is sort of like trying to decipher hieroglyphics.
As stated, I know requesting a blue post is sort of against the rules, but this patch note being 2 days old now I think it's time we get some clarification before this blows up even further.
