The Conquest cap changes have ticked me off more than any other change in recent history from Blizzard.
The part that bothers me this most is being forced to cap conquest points with RBG's AFTER doing any randoms and arenas. You can't win 3 or 4 RBG's early in the week and then finish out your cap with randoms or arenas, but you can do randoms/arenas first and finish your cap with an RBG or two. The exact same content, in a different order, gives different rewards.
3 RBG Wins = 1200 Conquest
Rest of the week:
10 Random Wins = 150 Conquest (Capped)
If you run RBG's on Sunday Instead and run randoms earlier
Early in the week:
10 Random Wins = 500 Conquest (minimum)
3 RBG Wins = 1150 Conquest
So for the exact same effort, you get fewer rewards than somebody who has a different schedule. This is not a design! This is a mistake and is counterintuitive to anything Blizzard has ever posted.
I've brought this up on the forums, bug reports, tickets, and suggestions and have been given the same “working as intended” response. I'm frustrated.
I've finally devised a plan to get Blizzard to listen and I am looking for support from others who feel the new Conquest system needs to be reverted.
I've canceled the subscription to all my accounts that aren't part of an annual pass and I recommend everybody else who wants this to change do the same. Do I want people to stop playing? No. Once you cancel the account, and give your reason, simply reactivate it when it comes due (or you happen to play that account again). I bet the devs pay more attention to canceled accounts than they do to any other message in the game. In my case, I canceled 3 accounts. I will probably re-enable them all, but I don't always play them all and will probably not re-enable them until I need to. In that way, I can hit them where it hurts. My three accounts won't do anything, but a hundred with the same complaint will probably get noticed.
I'm sure, I will get a bunch of troll messages, and that's fine. “You're a N00B! You want free gear! You only have xk kills!” I'm not a hard-core PVPer, but I do like to play and I don't think it's right to penalize people for playing on Tuesday instead of Sunday and I don't think it's right that the Blizzard devs made a mistake and call it “working as intended” when it's clearly not “working as intended.”
f you, like me, are tired of Blizzard's smoke and mirrors, cancel your account for a few days and lets see if we can get something changed.
