Do I think it's a perfect fix? No. But it's not just gear, it's also experience working with a group and taking instructions. At the very least, I still think this is better than what we currently have. And if you feel you're getting too many baddies, then do what people do when they want a fast EV or KP SM: Find a group in general.
Sure a lot of people will end up just using general, but there are a lot of advantages to group finder, not to get off topic.
The problem is that there is little to no effort needed to complete EV or KP.
Denova is a huge step-up even after the nerfs.
Most SM-Ops PUGs on my server actually refuse to use TS or anything and it's simply too hard for a random-group to complete it otherwise in my opinion(seriously even EC HM is a joke if you have TS and are in a competent group).
