    Greetings! Today, we sat down and chatted with the RvR team about two popular topics we've seen pop up in the WAR community. Read on!

    Q: We have keeps claimed but our Victory Points from Scenarios, Skirmish, and PvE are still degrading…what gives?!

    A: This unfortunately is a common misconception due to various player mods which inaccurately represent the Zone Control system. Victory points in the Skirmish, Scenario and PvE pools degrade whether a Keep is claimed or not.

    Q: We just did 5 runs of a PQ and the PvE pool has barely moved…what’s going on there?

    A: Each Zone Control pool has various weights associated with it to determine its importance in the over all Victory Point total. These pools also have a neutral pool to limit the “flip flopping” of dominance in a single area of Zone Control (except for BOs and Keeps which are binary). Currently the weights of each pool are as follows:

    • Tier 1: Scenario - 40%, Objectives 40%, Skirmish 10%, PvE 10%
    • Tiers 2 and 3: Scenario - 35%, Objectives 35%, Skirmish 10%, PvE 10%, Prior Zone 10%
    • Tier 4: Scenario - 25%, Objectives 45%, Skirmish 20%, PvE 5%, Prior Zone 5%
