I didnt see anything about removing that or the BH area weekly in the patch notes but I'm pretty sure that some official is going to claim that it was intended. Just like they did with the ec sm comms.
So remind me again, how is it now easier to earn BH comms?
No one said it is. The sheer number of BH Comms was just too much. People who had no skill or group to complete EC HM were all getting equally powerful gear because they run a few easy hard modes with story mode operations on top. It was unfair to raiders and their hard work.
