While you do indeed need to have only played (and finished) one arena match to ensure that you keep at the cap Devlin, you must also ensure that you have played at least 30% of the teams matches for that week as well.

Keep in mind that if you play in a number of arena teams, then only your highest personal rating will count towards the cap. So if you have say a lower rating in your 3v3 but have played more games there than say your 2v2 which has a higher rating, then you may drop down to the lower cap even though you have played a large amount of games.

It is also very important to ensure that you have stayed until the end of the game so that the rating can be calculated. Leaving before the match ends will not count it towards the total and again you may see a drop to the lower cap.

With regards to losses and draws counting towards «active» games played, we have received other reports from players stating that it doesn't seem to count them and it is something we have passed on for further investigation.

We also have a blog on Conquest points which you are welcome to take a look at here.

Hello!

Me and my teammate Adopted have been playing 2v2. We play subtlety rogue and restoration shaman, so most of our games are extremely long. Last week we had very limited playing time, and we had the insane luck of playing two back–to–back 45 minute draws. And that was it. We decided to stop playing there and then, due to the late hour (night between monday 21st and tuesday 22nd) and the fact that we simply could not bare it anymore. But we at least saw the good in us keeping our Conquest points cap fairly high, so we could get a 3v3 team going the next week.

We ended last week with a personal rating of 1813, which should give us a Conquest points cap of about 2095.

This week however, our cap is reset to 1343.

As far as I'm aware, you need to play 1 game — win or lose — in order to keep your team «active» and retain your team's Conquest points cap. As I said above, we played two 45 minute games that both ended in draws, which apparently the system does not recognize as being active.

A GM told me that losing is better than drawing, for the sake of keeping the Conquest points cap. How is losing a game any different from playing a 45 minute draw, in terms of being «active»? So if we were to just run into the arena and do nothing at all while the opponents kill us, it would be seen as more active than playing two back–to–back 45 minute draws, which I guarantee you we tried our best to win, throughout.

So in the end, me and Adopted stand 752 Conquest points short, which we cannot regain in any way, shape or form, due to a hole in the system. We have gotten our 5 wins this week and have received the 1343 Conquest points, but as said, it is 752 points below what we are entitled to.

I am really hoping for some help in this matter.

I apologise if the second paragraph seemed confusing for you Devlin. I was explaining that because it takes the highest personal rating, the games you play on a team with lower rating won't count.

I understand that you feel frustrated because of the situation, and as I stated in my last reply we have passed other reports of similar occurrences on for further study.
