It's a slower grind but only half the set, so it should be I guess.
And they seem to be slowing it down in general to give a sense on longetivity. People don't always know what they want. They did complain that gearing was too quick in previous ops and now its been changes. And theres a great chance that it won't be changed based on the couple of complaints in this thread.
A sense of longetivity doesnt mean trippling the Op gear grind and ten times more the "daily" farm for hazmats implants.
I allready stated before that i wouldnt mind them for example dropping the 3 loot items on EC drop number to only 2 pieces per boss on TFB, i do understand that and im totally up for it but putting it as it is, its just non-sense.
