It is Battleground Points and Battleground Points alone that affect your position in the Battleground Tournament Rankings. When you have been credited with Battleground Points, a special icon will appear in your Battle Report. If this icon does not appear, something is amiss as you have not received these Points and and your Ranking Position will be unchanged.
How many Battleground Points you receive at the conclusion of a battle is completely dependant on the size of the battle and the total number of Balur’s Forces you kill. A massive battle in which you take down many of Balur’s Units will see you receive a similarly massive number of Battleground Points. We can then deduce that if you didn’t receive any Battleground Points after a battle you simply didn’t kill the requisite number of Balur’s Units.
