Is there any particular reason why the BG sets are far superior compared to the Emp Set? I don't own any atm, so my opinion comes from an outside perspective of concern and curiosity. I find it weird that a rarer set, which can be more difficult to get, pales in comparison with a set that's fairly easy to obtain.

To obtain Emp Set:

Complete set (just armor, garment and boots) would take 1,600 fragments.

People on average get 14-40 fragments per woe, some good dps and healers get 40-60, per maximum of 4 times a week. (Let's assume 50 frags for best case, and 14 frags for worst case)

In best case: 1,600 fragments, if you get 50 frags per WoE, will take 32 WoE's or 8 weeks, which is ~2 months to get the complete WoE set.

In worst case: 1,600 fragments, if you get 14 frags per WoE, will take ~114 WoE's, or ~29 weeks, which is ~8 months to get the complete WoE set.

To obtain BG Set (Warmaster / Executioner / Battlelord):

Complete set would take 10,500 badges.

People on average get 300-400 badges a day (w/ 5 wins), and at best 600 badges a day (600 limit), 700 if we included the +100 from 5 wins with the limit. (We'll assume 600 badges for best, and 300 for worst)

In best case: 10,500 badges, if you get 600 badges a day, will take 18 days, which is more than two weeks but less than a month, to get the whole set.

In worst case: 10,500 badges, if you get 300 badges a day, will take 35 days, which is less than 2 months, to get the whole set.

TL;DR I'm just curious how these decisions were made by the GM team, or if anyone can rationalize why this seems crazily weird (to me, specially). Normally, it follows that a set that's harder to get would provide more benefits (or more options lol), but most people will tell you that the current BG sets mentioned above, are better than the Emp Set. I want to know the opinion of the more experienced players regarding this topic. What are the pro's and cons of each? Thanks a lot!
