I'm just going to copy and paste this from my other thread...
You want to lower the emphasis on requiring Valor Points, yet you didn't lower the valor cap.
Most players, especially raiders, are obligated to cap their valor points every week. Whether if it is for certain Best-In-Slot pieces, cloth gear with spirit, or even just to sell the BoE ones, players will reach their valor cap for the majority of 4.3 (Ironically there are even more items available from the valor point vendors than ever before). Because the recent valor point change did not lower the valor point cap, all the change effectively did was force raiders to have to do the heroic 5 mans every week if they wish to cap. It doesn't matter if they kill all of Dragon Soul and the Baradin Hold boss, they still won't be able to reach the cap with only 100 per boss.
How is that fair to raiders? They choose to do end-game content, and you are forcing them to do 5 mans dungeons in order to reach their end goal. This goes against everything you've spoken about doing in Mists of Pandaria, and the Conquest Point change. The Conquest Point change made it so players that did not enjoy arena could still achieve conquest points through regular battlegrounds. All is well in PvP, because players can do what they want to earn their points.
Yet, you're telling us that a group of players that put together 25 people and do normal mode/hard mode Dragon Soul, is undeserving of reaching their cap from the raid alone? Is it not sad that even downing Deathwing will not reach our cap, yet running mindless 5 mans will?
The goal was to lower the desire and necessity for Valor Points, yet you didn't even lower the cap. That means players are still going to end up getting the same points per week. Lowering the amount that bosses drop does nothing, and goes against your idea that "we want players to feel that downing bosses is important, and that they should drop the loot."
So while your Conquest Point change's goal was to allow PvP players to choose how they wish to play, your poor Valor Point change just slapped raiders in the face, because apparently killin
