Look, I don't even like the system itself. I hate Rivens and all they stand for. They're just an RNG treadmill implemented as a pseudo "endgame" for people to grind hours upon days upon weeks to HOPEFULLY get the chance at getting a mod that destroys the already broken balance this game has.
All I'm saying, is wouldn't you rather have an official fix to your farming problem instead of abusing an exploit? This fix will bring to light many of the players' ire towards the riven system in general, and will push DE to change it to be less grindy. It's a cycle. They implement a system. Players find fault in the system and figure out ways to circumvent it via loopholes and whatnot. DE fixes the loophole. Players get enraged and demand change. DE compromises. We are currently in the "De fixed the loophole" phase.
