    Default Why do I never finish top even though I have some of the best stats at the end

    http://i.imgur.com/8MZ3AUU.jpg How can it be that I'm ahead of my whole team in damage, flag captures, most kills ect and the only thing I lack is healing cos I am dps.

    But my team mates get a full 1000 favor more than me?

    Why am I being rewarded so low even though my stats are very high compared to other people?

    Are you drinking any Favour Potions that up it by +40%?

    No I'm not but even if I was he is still beating me by 1000 favor... He has 100% more favor than me when our stats are the same, here is another one.

    I guess I am missing something. He is most likely in a guild with favor perks and is running a vial.

    The game also seems to reward players more for the "Damage Taken" stat, which doesn't make any sense to me other than encouraging tank builds in PvP for completing the objectives such as holding the fang for longer than someone else could or carrying sourcestone, sinks or storm crystals.

    While it's most likely the Favor and Guild perk thing - the time you spend in the match also matters. If you get 100 kills and were there for 5 minutes, some schmuck who had 20 kills but was there for 15 minutes will likely end up with 2.5-3x as much favor.

    PvP rewards are not based on performance (beyond winning the match), but time spent and participation. Participating is very different from performing.

    There are +80% vials as well. They are additive with the guild bonuses, so you can double another person's favor without necessarily out-performing them.

    This scenario doesn't happen.
