As of this week’s reset, we’ve made a change to how the Conquest catch-up cap is calculated that should result in a 50% increase to the catch-up portion of the cap. We’re making this change because, while we still want there to be an incentive to play early and often, the amount of Conquest that a player could earn via that catch-up cap didn’t feel like enough once the PvP season had been active for a while.

To elaborate, the formula used to calculate a player’s catch-up cap is now:
<Number of weeks passed in the season> × 1500 - <Total amount of Conquest earned this season>

That number is then added to the weekly total cap of 1700. Note that, as of this post, Warlords Season 1 has been active for 18 weeks, which means the maximum possible catch-up cap for a player that has not earned any Conquest points this season is 28,700 Conquest.

We're looking into the reports that some players haven't had their catch-up cap increased. I'll update when I can.

Okay, we've tracked down the issue that caused some players to not get the increased Conquest catch-up cap.

The good news is that the issue is only temporary, and any characters who did not get the increase this week will automatically get it with next week's reset. If you would like the increase applied sooner than that, please contact our Customer Service department, who will be able to manually correct it.
