Time LImited MIssions - How is this even remotely balanced?

Last week: Gain 8 medals in a single Warzone

This week: Complete 4 Master Mode Flashpoints

The time required difference between these two is astonishing. Completing one Master Mode Flashpoint would have been way more balanced.

But, who says it needs to be "balanced"?

Consider we know the other PvE one has to do with Operations, perhaps the PvE timed missions are balanced with the other PvE mission Maybe the GSF, and the PvP missions are balanced togther.

If there's no Effort = Reward balance between two activities delivering the same reward people will complain, and rightly so.

Bioware has never really managed to the get the Effort/Reward balance anything like consistently (with a content drop or across all content drops) right.

It just shows how far out of touch they are with their game, and their players.

Maybe they should reduce the requirement to any 4 flashpoints and not make them MM.

Master mode = ok

8 medals vs 4 MM fp = 1 minute vs 2h+ that's funny

Anyway its weekly, not daily.

Yeah BW is cracked in the head if they think I'm doing 4 MM FP's a week on any character.

They lower the rewards from Hammer Station to discourage the easiest path and then put in an objective that completely works against that.

Agreed - guess Bioware hates us again.

I guess I've been fortunate with the rewards from the Ossus Weekly - but I can't see me ever doing the Time Limited Mission, certainly never going to do the PvP Elements.

Yep this..Resubed for the update it was barely an hour of story, and I am not sticking around for a gear grind that doesn't allow for my chosen play style SOLO . Was hoping for a Shadow of Revan sized story and didn't even get half a story arc.
