Sounds like to prolong progress, they took the easy (and stupid) route of doubling down on tedium. Tedious isn't challenging, it's just tedious. Not interested.

Not awarding top tier gear too early is a good thing, but the whole damned system is random. FFS, I often finish getting magazines for crap I haven't spec'ed into before I get half of them for stuff I have spec'ed into. I'm not aware of a developer yet who's been able to truly balance anything random. None of the games I've played that are RNG are balanced and those devs also opted for tedium which is why I don't play them anymore.

I've been giving TFPs the benefit of the doubt, but to be honest, it's sounding like this game's gonna head toward the toilet.
Till you have it in hand, you shouldn't be so harsh. There might be other changes in the way it all works that would make increasing the required quest count back to 10 more purposeful than "just doubling down on tedium".
