You're reading that wrong.

Season 7 ships in November just like we've always said. The argument was that if we left everything is it is now, the odds of getting the prototype tech drops are so low that it would take a long time to get them. Once Season 7 hits, you'll now have a definite finish line of approximately 2 months to finish the Omega Rep and get the gear.

Or another way of looking at it:

(Existing Way)
- Statistical number of STF runs needed to get a specific prototype drop = X

(New Reputation Way)
- Number of STF runs needed to max out Omega Fleet and acquire gear = 60% less than X

If you then have existing items that are being converted in Season 7, once you max out Omega Fleet, it will be even cheaper to acquire the gear because we're giving you credit for the currencies you've saved up to buy the gear.
