Personally I don't see the joy in the tour, but if others do, I want them to get their joy back.
^This.

I always completed full runs of the Tour. I mapped my path to do it as efficiently as possible including when to hit slipstream. some sectors were good, others not so much. The people in a fleet I associate with have always done the short runs, drop and reget method but that always felt like an exploit/cheat. Did not feel right if I did not do a full run of the Tour. I also liked the cxp bonus for getting them all. Comparing EC earned they made a bit more but I felt like I had accomplished more.

I have not run it in a long time as it got boring and I had other things to spend my time on. Plus with the addition of Tau, I'm not sure what path would be best. I don't even know if that one is required.

However, I do feel that being able to do a couple of full runs should be left in. If you can manage 2-3 full runs then you really deserve the ec and cxp you earn. Can earn more EC doing a lot of other stuff, and can earn the cxp while offline if you really want to. The Tour was a way to journey through all the sectors and see how many blocks you could complete in an hour.

Seems it's better to Sledge Hammer a problem into oblivion, than tap on it lightly with a Ball Peen to adjust it.
