How do conquest points work?

-Your conquest point cap is set based on the highest personal rating you achieved during the previous week.

-Weeks begin on the server reset day.  Tuesday for US, Wednesday for EU.

-You gain points as you win games until you hit your cap.


FAQ


How many games do I have to play per week to not get the minimum point cap next week?

A minimum of one game must be played, win or lose, using the team you want to base your point cap on.  For arenas, you must also have 30% of the games played for the week on that team.


What if I server transfer/faction change?

Your highest rating achieved in a played game that week will count under some circumstances.  Faction changing allows you to keep it for sure. Disbanding the team will not lower your cap.  Server changes can reset your cap.  


Example: If you play one game on a 3k rated team, delete the team, and move to the opposite faction on the same server you will get a point cap like you were 3k rated.


How many conquest points am I going to get?

Do rated BGs, 5v5, 3v3, or 2v2 reward a higher conquest point cap?
RBGs and Arenas give different caps depending on rating.  See the graph linked above for more information.

All arena brackets raise your conquest point cap equally.  If you are 2k in 2v2 you get the same point cap as a 2k player in 5v5.  


I heard there is a bug that resets my cap to the minimum.

If you login and change zones between the time conquests reset and the time when servers restart your cap may be reset.   I have never experienced this so I can not explain the exact details, but you may want to proceed with caution on maintenance days if you value your conquest point cap.


Is it based on team rating or personal rating?

Your conquest point cap is based solely on personal rating (pr) no matter how close you are to the team.  If your pr is above the team's rating you will gain more points than the team rating.


How many games per week do I have to play to hit my weekly point cap?

It depends on your cap.  Arenas reward 180 points per win and rated battlegrounds reward 400.  


Can doing a random battleground give me extra points?

No. Random battlegrounds do not give extra points.  It's outdated and confusing that they give any conquest points at all to uncapped players.  The amount is far too low to cap off of.  


What is the conquest point cap?

The weekly cap is 2700 for arenas and 3300 for RBGs.

Blizzard has stated the maximum number of conquest points you can have is effectively uncapped.  

How can I check my highest rating for the week?

Log in to the Armory and view the pvp tab of your character.  You can see "Highest Personal Rating This Week" there.  This is the rating that will be used to determine your point cap.  If you transfer or faction change this statistic won't be accurate.  


Do you have to play 30% of an arena team's games for the week to get points?

Yes.

You might add, you only need to play 1 game to maintain your highest cap from your highest rating.

Your conquest point cap is based 100% on PR no matter how close you are to the team. If your PR is above the team's rating you will gain more points than the team rating.

er... thats not true.
If your within 150 PR of the team you will get points for the team rating.

I had 2320 PR on a 2240 team and received a higher cap than my teammates.

Our druid was ~50 points below TR and received a lower cap than the warrior on my team who had the exact team rating.

Being within 150PR is how it worked prior to the conquest point system.

ok lets say im 2600 in 3s and 1800 in 2s, this week I can only do 2s because my 3s partners aren't around, will my cap be based off my 3s even though I didnt play on it this week but got capped in points from 2s?

You need to play one game that week on your 3s team to have the 3s cap for the week.

This game can be a win or a loss, and it doesn't have to be with your regular teammates.

Would be based on your 2v2.

-Five wins in arena or three wins in rated battlegrounds maxes you out for the week.

Here's a question I've been trying to find the answer to:
What is the Conquest Point hard cap? As in, not the maximum Conquest points you can get in a week based on your rating, but rather, the cumulative amount of Conquest Points you can ever have at a given time.

4000?
