While I have enjoyed exploring the recent maps, I've noticed a rather annoying trend. One poi in each map is getting locked behind events completely preventing people from getting map completion on their own if they happen to be around when that event is not up. Examples include Warden's Quarters in Istan requiring the Great Hall meta, Specimen Chamber in Sandswept requiring its eponymous meta event, and now Research Vault Beta in Kourna requiring a random event from halfway across the map (I'd include the awakened inquest plague research facility too, but that can be reached by either using sandswept's mastery and a jackal or just a griffon) .
I do not believe "waiting for the event" is an engaging way to explore a map; furthermore, I'd guess it also isn't an enjoyable experience for someone that has no idea how to reach the poi so they spend a not so insignificant amount of time running around everywhere trying to pick it up before having to look abroad or pray someone else on the map will tell them what to do. Having said that, my question is: what is the reasoning behind this and would it be possible to curb it? (i.e. give exploration credit when reaching the front door). Nothing else has derailed map completion more for me.
