I cant think of any good reasons why this counter was removed. All this change does is make the user experience worse.
The vast majority of us save EHT for seasonal summons. Now I have to actually open my portal to find out when my free summons or silver tokens are available.
More clicks to find important nformation = bad.
@SG: This is a very disappointing change. Its inconvenient and serves no purpose. Please revert it back!
