Will Raid Tournaments improve ascension mats drop rate?

It seems that the heroes one takes out during tournament raids count toward your Wanted:Heroes chest, making it possible to fill this chest much faster since each day of the tournament you have essentially 11 flags to get to 40 heroes. This should tend to increase the rate of hero chest turnover without having to spend for raid energy and chest-speeding, and therefore also increase the number of AM rolls a player gets for filling them. Further, assuming that the odds of getting an elemental chest remain unchanged, this should also increase the average frequency of these more lucrative chests.

Does anyone think that this will make a significant difference? If so, will it be for better or worse?

NOTE: I am not even considering the AM’s available at higher reward tiers in the tournament itself.

I left this thread open for 7 hours to see if it would garner discussion, but it idled with only one response. So I’ve moved it to the main discussion about the Raid Tournament in hopes of spurring more responses.
