FOTD isn't worth the time or trouble for a lot of people that are going to do it anyway. The loot is awesome but that gold can be made doing other things that are far less of a target and pain. A person can do a fleet as a reaper and hit grade 5 and start selling in 20-30 minutes before anyone even really starts paying attention to them
Like FOTD? do it
Like PVP? do it
Commendation completionist? live event? go for it
Casual pvers? open crew? new? inexperienced? don't waste your time there are better ways to grind for you.
A lot of people that do it shouldn't be doing it imo
