It's a hell of a lot more fun? You act like you have an assignment to obtain x amount of conquest pts.

we sat in 5+ min Qs all day today. Then dropped the Q and gave up after a 20 minute long one.

so it goes both ways.

Rated BGs are fun to play, but the queues are way too long.
On top of that, we didn't gain any rating from 540 average rating anymore (vs a 0 rated team and 350 team).

So it seems it's not rly worth it to rated bgs yet, if you want to increase your conq point base, spam arena (Enjoy getting farmed by PvE'ers tho)

S8 Never Forget

MM was great, especially after they reverted disengage back to 16 sec cooldown (glyphed and talented ofc) - managed rank 2 as HLD, obviously wasn't good enough to beat protholy pala / rdruid / arms warrior ninapartio pve nerds that were 300 rating ahead ^^

You sound very knowledgeable about rated BGs, please tell us more about their sucking.

if you play rated bg's and arena's, would the maximum conq. points per week cap rise more than it does if you only play arena for ex. ? :S

Nope, your max points is based off of your best rating.

Top Rated BG team vs another is about 100 times more fun to play in and watch than the same thing in Arena.
