With The Hunt event ending in a couple days, I can’t understand why they wouldn’t make some version of this permanent. It’s great content. The combat is interesting, it incorporates important new player mechanics like scanning and dealing with ECM, and it gives casual players a bit more, and much needed, content.
The rewards don’t even have to be as good as they are now. Just give casual players something else to do besides L4 missions and Abyssals.
