Totally agree with this, I am one of those people who looks at this and shrugs. Time restrictions, Time zone, Location, Bad connection = Absolutely no possibility of ever coming close to winning. All time gate rewards do is make 1 person happy, and the vast majority disgruntled. One massive reward would be much better replaced by 100 smaller random rewards handed out at end of event to any participant who completed the quest line in the given time. Everyone want's to feel like they actually have a chance at these event rewards, but sadly most don't. These events are enjoyable, I love taking part in them regardless of the apparent issues and will happily take part in future ones.
