Because the time and repair bill? Not many people can spend many many hours on this and pay tons of repair bill.
What makes no sense? Other HM all drop stuff that can give upgrade to most of the people. Why didn' HM EC drops 1 campaign+many Rakata or HM TFB drops 1 dreadguard+ many campaign? LI HM is the only exception.
You and I have danced around this several times.
The T2 flashpoints are a different class of difficulty
than the T1 flashpoints. Just like the T2 operations are in a different class of difficulty
than the T1 operations.
Tier 2 ramps up the difficulty a lot
, but ramps up the rewards a little
. This is a Good Thing(tm)
It gives a reason to become better players. If they can't bring the skill, they can always overgear it. And *surprise* the rewards are therefore LESS.
The way things currently stand, T1 stuff is tuned for the less skilled players, and T2 is tuned for the more skilled players. If you are less skilled and trying to do T2 stuff, you overgear
it. Everyone wins.
