You see people quitting (or atleast threatning to quit) on a regular basis, this can be due to balance changes, not having the time or just overall boredom of the game. One of the ways Blizzard are trying to keep their customer attrition rate down, is by trying to make the game more alt friendly, giving players more stuff to do.


An alt friendly game, encourage people who are easily bored with their class, character or realm to keep playing, by rerolling to one of their other alts. I have faced the same problem a few times, and if an expansion is not on the horizon, I simply quit playing my character and spend time on something else, be it another game or spending time with friends (god forbid).

Right now when you reach 27.000 conquest points, you can buy all the other sets from honor (493-498 iLvl). This only applies to your character that has the achievement. Now, I don't have the time to play RBG or keep high ratings (not to mention, ensure being on a high pop realm and keeping 3 active 3v3 teams), meaning I am left with basicly 1 character that will be able to benefit from this. This means if I try to reroll, my alts will be severely undergeared, and they will be no fun to play and it will not be possible to migrate them in order to play with friends if you want to stay competitive.

Therefor, in order to try and give an extra incentitive (not only to earn a bit extra) but also to keep your playerbase (atleast within the pvp community) I would strongly suggest making this achievement account wide, meaning that all your other characters can farm the gear from honor, once you did it with 1 character.

Now, I can't really see the consequenses of this change, but perhaps some fellow AJ members could tell me why this might be a bad idea?

The only negative consequence would be the system supporting fotming. Just people know(I found out about it yesterday) that when 5.3 hits, there will be a catching up system:
Players who are starting their journey into PvP mid-season start significantly behind the gearing curve. While we want to avoid invalidating the effort of players who have competed for the whole season, we agree with the feedback we’ve received that the starting gap is too large, so a new Conquest Point catch-up cap will be implemented using the following formula:


(Current week of the season) * 1000 – (Conquest earned thus far this season)



So when the achievement becomes accountwide and this system is in place, you insta gear up, which is unfair to people who played their alts since the start of the season.
I like the idea but it should be a higher number than that since 27k 8 weeks of cap for an rbgtard.

I don't see any bad reasons for people who only do arenas but Blizzard thinks that the gear grind is a big part of why people do PvP, the gear progression is a "fun" thing according to them.

This SO very much. I actually thought it ment that u would be able to buy it for all chars once u hit 27k before, becouse I thought only hybrids would gain from being able to buy tyrannical shit for honor :(. Personally I have a TON of alts and would be so very very great to get this implemented. Maybe someone with abit more influence could tweet the devs?

The catching up system will not be implemented untill 5.4 Rating inflation however is already live. Also, if you increase the cap, you will just make the ones not playing RBG fall behind even further.

Well, people still need to farm the same amount of honor on their alts. Timewise, You will still have to play your main for 8-10 weeks before you can unlock the gear for your alts, so you did still do the "grind", timewise.

The catchup system is coming in 5.3. Not 5.4.

I have had tons of friends quit once their class/spec got nerfed. This would let them reroll and continue playing competitively instead of having to sit a whole patch (warriors).

Perhaps I remember wrong, it was probably in 5.1 when people asked if it was coming for 5.2 that I recall. I haven't found it in the 5.3 patch notes on their website though, but it would not be the first time they do this.

@Braindance Guess that's a negative then! Catch up system it is!

And here are the specific changes that are planned to hit in Patch 5.3:

The Conquest Point catch up cap will be introduced.

Fuck Holinka and the wow devs. This was such a great idea. Capping is not the way it used to be like s8/early s9 where you can do a min/max of 10 games and get your points next week. Now I gotta do 16 WINS per alt in 2s to get it, such a kill off.
