I recently watched the Ghostcrawler's interview and one of the points he brought up was that PvP is unfriendly to people with alts who get too far behind if they switch. This made me think, and I'm sure someone's thought of this before, that why doesn't GC allow Valor points and Conquest points to carry over each week.
So say you're playing a main but have other characters who you haven't been playing. Then your class gets a nerf or for whatever the reason may be you decide to switch characters for the remainder of the season or simply want to play an alt that week. When you switch over you are able to gain all the conquest points that you missed from the previous weeks. This would keep the time investment yet allow an easier transition into PvP without feeling too far behind.
