Working as intended. The gear is very very easy to get through hardmodes so stressing on this gear is not necessary. Crap half your raid gets stuff each boss kill.
If you are working gearing your raid for hard modes you do not want non-specific loot going to people that cannot even use them. This may work for the casual guilds, but it does not work for guilds working on content.
Going to just skip normal EV and go to hard modes, if this is the way they are going to keep it.
