A couple of months ago, I made a post about how unhappy I was with having to do strike missions to complete zone meta achievements. I still haven't finished the last two zone metas, which is something that's never happened before. And yeah I know I can. I chose not to, because I didn't want that content to become must do content to complete zone metas.
The thread had a lot of traffic both for and against, but I feel like it had a lot of support. The meta achievements from the episodes that required strike missions were some of the lowest completion rates of any zone meta, at least according to Guild Wars 2 efficiency. I said at that point that Anet would do their own calculations and based on their own metics would decide if strike missions should be part of the zone meta. This is the first time in a couple of months where it hasn't been.
Anyway I'm really happy that I can finally complete a zone meta again, so thanks Anet. I know a lot of people say the developers never listen to fans. I think we all forget that different groups of players often want compeltely different things. And since I was happy enough to make my case, it's only fair that I say thank you when that changes happens, so thanks Anet.
The zone is great, and I'm happy to be playing "my" game again.
