How about not providing even more rewards to the playstyle that already has the odds stacked in their favor?
Promoting rank integrity by only allowing inf/renown buffs while grouping? you've got to be kidding. I killed a warden on my warg the other day who has been out in the moors for about 2 or 3 weeks, and already has as much renown as mine. This person has 18k morale, was shield traited, running determination, and used never surrender. This was the first time I've ever seen them solo, and from what I saw, i'm not sure they actually know how to execute a gambit. There are a number of rank 10+ wargs on E who make 3 point turns in combat and seem to actively avoid attacking targets from behind. You want to protect the integrity of the ranks these players 'earned'?
Wheres the integrity of my rank when I've had the fortune of finding another solo and am able to be winning the fight, when a raid walks by and lights the target up for the last 1k morale. Where's the integrity in me getting 9 infamy/renown for doing 95% of the work?
Why can't we all be rewarded based on our contribution to a kill, whether its healing, dps, or CC?
Whether someone is god's gift to their class, or the least skilled player out there, they should have the opportunity to compete against others in the format they find enjoyable, not because buffs promote one over another, and their rewards should reflect what they've contributed.
There's already some zerging, making inf/renown buffs group only would mean there is only zerging.

but some people use 1v1ing to farm points quicker (with the outside help of OP/relic buffs to help them 1v1) due to these changes, thus it has killed cohesive group play more than helped. People that normally haven't 1v1ed before this expac are 1v1ing now because of the point changes, which has all but killed the integrity of 1v1ing.
