I feel like these Mass Effect Bounty Weekends aren't even trying anymore

I gave up on Mass Effect 3's multiplayer long ago.  It was about the time getting booted from the lobby if some arbitrary stat wasn't high enough became a thing that I said, "I'm out."  I have, however, kept track of the Bounty Weekends, even though I haven't taken part in one in months.  So I feel confident when I say that they're just phoning it in with this weekend's Operation: Geronimo.

Are you ready for this?  The objective is to earn any first-aid medal on any map on any difficulty.  That's it.  Earn a first-aid medal, get a commendation pack.  I don't think it could be simpler.  Maybe that is just the kind of challenge the player-base wants, but it's a far cry from those initial ones with goals that sounded like they were developed by Seal Team Six.

Operation: Geronimo runs from January 18th until January 20th.  You can read more about it here
