    Default CQ Power needs a rework, again

    I play for days at a time, then take a week off. I do CQ fairly often, both for keeping my CQ power up and for fun. But I'll get up to 50k CQ Power, and then a week later, its gone. Which is kinda crappy.

    Is it possible to make it decay (faster maybe) but based upon time actually spent logged into game instead of real time? Because it is painful to be at 50k+ and come back to 0. Whats the decay rate currently? It starts to decay 36 hours after not doing CQ and then goes down like 1000 CQ Power an hour until 0? That's insane and near impossible for people like me to keep it up.

    While I do actually PvP too because its fun, I manage my CQ power because of PvP. That's fair. I see why CQ Power was installed, in an attempt to make everyone do every part of the game. Which makes a lot of sense.

    But I feel like I shouldn't even waste my time if I get it really high and then its gone the next time I log in. Heck, I've gotten it into the mid 100ks and then it be gone the week or week and a half after. That's crazy.

    So, CQ Power does need to be reworked.

    Removing it solves more problems.

    Assuming Trion won't do that, of course.

    If it was account bound, I would actually do CQ. Maintaining it on 3 characters is not practical for me at all.

    Account bound would allow me to use more than one character at a time.

    They already have this system for PA. Should work great.

    Just remove it and add fluff rewards to replace the CQ Power.

    What about offering a potion or something in the Store for plat or credits that would keep CQP from decaying for a day (maybe stackable for up to 30 days). With the caveat that any that are active get immediately invalidated as soon as CQ is entered by the character it is active on (because obviously the need to freeze CQ Power then no longer exists for that particular character). But it should only affect the character it is used on, so that CQP could be frozen on that one while a different character is played to build its own CQP, although auto-freeze of CQP on other same account characters while an alt is being played would also seem reasonable. Yes?

    I'd pay like 50 bucks to stop decay permanently, I'd still join sometimes for like myrmidon marks and ****. if anything the removal of that nagging feeling in the back of my head might lead to less hating of CQ, because that whole mandatory thing doesn't foster anything like enjoyment.

    This.

    There's simply no reason NOT to make it account wide given that they've already made PA and Reputation account wide.

    Simple, add a store item that cost $100.00 bucks to make CQ power account bound, then add another item to make it not decay for 12 months at a time for $50.00. Problem solved, Trion makes business.

    It's still a terrible PvP spec compared to Marksman, though.
