    Default Please Don't Change Conquest

    Conquest is in a pretty good state right now. If I join at the beginning of a game I will have to do something that I don't like for an indeterminate amount of time, possibly exceeding three hours to get the only thing that matters (the marks).
    If I join when the five minute timer starts I am guaranteed to get the only thing I want from conquest within five minutes and avoid the really annoying part of conquest (the objectives and the poor excuse for pvp combat, well most of it really). During the time I am waiting for the timer I can be doing warfronts, which are a vastly superior pvp experience, or begging people for duels in Tempest, which is also a better form of pvp.

    So please Trion, leave things the way they are.

    it actually breaks my heart to discover that people only join for the marks. i'm a day one fan of conquest and i'm absolutely chocked by your statement. i would play conquest over anything else even if there were no marks cause it's the true essence of PvP in this game.

    you sir, should be ashamed of yourself. that kind of heresy should not be tolerated on the pvp forums.

    heh.
    Seriously though, we all know the only reason we play cq is because there is no alternative. Get rid of the marks and no one would ever want to queue NF, NF queue problem solved.

    Sadly, its true..... 60 chat on my shard is usually quiet except for the usual trolling and every few hours "CQ Timer?" or "5 min timer started"

    every now and then i like to randomly announce things like "Oath just started the timer, NF at 5%" or "<Random Big Guild> has a premade raid on Dom and is tearing %$&# up, get in now for easy marks".

    thats almost as good as my idea to spawn a volan every hour for 3 hours during raid times

    CQ catches a lot of ****, but for our cluster the NF dominance is quickly evaporating during peak hours. The Dom were actually a factor tonight in one match, hitting 55% twice. It went to the kill count and a solid Oath win (wooo I usually queue Oath), and the consensus was "hey this was fun".

    Zergs of 150 slamming head to head, all of the teams fluctuating from 0%-5% to 50+ multiple times, activity all over the map - it was great chaos and entertainment. CQ needs tweaks for sure, but the player's brains need conditioning more than anything.

    once you get past the whole one frame per second thing its almost semi enjoyable if AOE spamming is your thing.

    I personally like being in a 5 man and harassing lolzergs while kiting them half way across the map as our team caps all the objectives. thats about the only "fun" thing i can find about conquest.

    Look down, look back up, where are you? You're on a mount, with a match your CQ could be like.

    Wouldn't it be cool if they found a way for every match to be this way? If only there were some worthwhile suggestions on the forums somewhere. Hmmmmm...

    I'm on a horse.

    Not really, if they'd block queuing for one faction until the other two had equal numbers of players...
    Maybe they already do, but I really doubt it.
