Patch 1.2, among many other PvP changes, will remove the reliance on daily quests for your gear progression (and therefore increasing the value of the commendations you get for playing a match to the end) and penalties for quitters.
The topic of battlemaster bags and the progress of getting PVP gear has been pretty hot since the game has been released and more and more people hit the level cap. The main complaint is that it’s pretty much random on how you gain commendations from them. This thread this dev post appeared in grew quite long, and the original poster claims to have opened 32 battlemaster bags without getting a single commendation.
