    Most efficient use of your time is capping off, getting the win bonus, then insta-queueing again.

    My queues are at least 5 minutes. Generally closer to 10.

    It is not PvP when one side is farming the other. It is farming.

    It is not just Scion.

    It has been all regular Whitefall Steppes today because it is the best farming warfront. It plays out until the time is done. There can be no accidental ends to the match because of points.

    And it is annoying.

    The problem is idiots who allow themselves to get farmed. Sit back in spawn, you won't get farmed. The team who's rolling you isn't going to stand around killing nothing, they're going to end the game.
    Look at your post, now back to mine, now back to your post, now back to mine. Sadly, it isn't mine, but if you stopped being nonconstructive and dumb and started posting about something that makes sense, it could look like it's mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're on a page with the post your post could look like. Anything is possible when you post like me, and not like an idiot. I'm on a forum.

    Which is just a hop 'n a skip away from AFKing for some people... some people want to win every now and again, so they try... shame on them.

    Yea sitting in spawn to get nothing out of this "bonus" is ridiculous. Plenty of matches today where there is 50kills vs 8 at the end.....that's both wins and losses. Put a string of wins together and who gets Rank 8 faster? That's right. They guys who are already stomping people. I love it, Trion. But many others do not and don't ReQ which is why wait times have grown since this morning. People accept fast lopsided losses in Escalation becuase they still benefit. Bump on only kills pretty much is bending the bads over even further.

    There are times where you aren't going to win, accept it. If you think running out of your spawn like a lemming for 10 minutes while you get stomped is fun, then by all means, have fun wasting your time.

    hello person in under populated faction did you actualy think both factions have insta queue? in my cluster guardians have insta queue while defiants have 10-15 min queue. so the smart thing for our cluster defiants is to farm the hell out of every game even without this bonus.
    See you all in Wildstar!

    IMHO, the OP was trying to highlight the issue where one side sits and treats the other side purely as resource nodes.

    Some choose to counter this by sitting at the respawn wasting the farmers time.

    Some choose to counter this by reporting them as afk.

    I personally would prefer the removal of all warfronts and the creation of a persistent , multi shard PvP zone.

    BUT, I currently play the game that is presented to me by Trion.

    Enjoy the game you play, or move along. World of tanks has some fun PvP matches....

    Being farmed is not fun so I don't think this is a smart mechanic.

    So with this extra favor bonus...sides that continue to bulldoze (depending on battlegroup) will get more favor now to get geared faster so they can...oh yeah, stomp face even more when this bonus half-birthday celebration is all over.

    Sides that continue to lose...will still make more favor than before, but at a slower rate than the side that continues to roll through.

    turtling and farming has begun!

    That's basically the gist of it. It's almost like some one or some entity is in favor of that style of play. I have to be cryptic here....

    Farming you, forcing you to stay in the spawn and get nothing from the entire match is why I log in to PvP everyday. Its fun for me.

    Have a nice day.

    As well as when they die in PVP, all they see on their screen is the warrior.. not the other 5 ranged classes that assisted him.

    Go fight some scripted dragons bro
    If that's the case. 20 people just hide around the cross at the spawn site. Then the other side can stand there for the whole timer getting nothing.

    Seems fun for both sides
