    Default Favor gain in relation to performance post 1.2

    So with the new favor changes, how does one get the most out of it? Pre 1.2, all you had to do was be in the vicinity of a kill. But now it seems more complicated, top KBs, top Healing, top anything doesn't really mean you get max favor.

    Frankly I don't care about the charts so long as I can maximize the time I spend in the WFs and walk out with favor - win or lose.

    Has anyone figured out the new system to maximize favor gain in WFs?

    Thanks for any who can answer.

    Don't target me. Cause then you just die and get no favor for 30 seconds or so. Good start imo.

    I don't, but you target me; especially when you're on your mage.

    Just FYI:

    I don't like getting balls shoved into my face, especially fireballs.

    Unfortunately, your performance has nothing to do with favor gained. I can have the top KB's, damage, and objectives completed and after looking at the board I'll realize that some scrub who has barely done anything is somehow getting more favor.

    Nice to know that those who don't help the team are going to get Prestige 6 just as fast as everyone else.

    That's how I roll

    I'm only missing the r5 gloves from my mage so she's basically sidelined atm, until they fix LGV being dispelled. Pyro bores me. I can't help it I'm a beast @ a spec I hate

    Yeah, I've seen that before too...
    Play a black garden where you have most fang time carried/pickups, most carrier kills, most deathblows, and near the top for kills and damage done, at the top for damage taken - but halfway down the list for favor gained for your side.

    There should be some prestige/favor bonuses provided for doing any objectives that score points for your side (so for BG would be fang pickups, carrier kills.... Scion would be boss/idol kills and stone caps, etc) - so that way people actually playing the game to try to win rather than just trying to farm the other side can be rewarded.

    I do think you still get favour gains just for being in the vicinity of kills as I'll get favor gains while defending codex when its quiet still (should also be some sort of gain to reward those who actually stick around to defend territory... whitefall's the worst for it because the map is so long, defending your own stone means you don't get any favour gains for kills in the middle of the map/their base).
