You're just no longer being forced to log in once a day for 30-50 days. You're actually free to approach the system in a way which suits your gaming schedule. And if your schedule dictates you can only log in for 15-30 minutes per day each day every day, then good for you, because you're free to do that too.

Showing up ten times and collecting tokens to buy loot is quite different from having the loot drop from a given boss.

And why in the world can't both systems be used in tandem?

How your guild distributed loot is relevant to anything?

If I put in 20 hours into maxing out a reputation grind, what difference does it make if I put in the grind over 2-3 play sessions, versus twenty minutes a day for 60 days? If the former system is so inadequate for failing to meet your needs, how is this system any better for failing to meet my needs?

At least I'm trying to discuss an issue, rather than telling you to just leave the game as some other posters might.
