Event Challenges Prevent Non-Event Challenge Progress

Why are the weekly event challenges (Tenrai) thrown in with the regular weekly challenges? I want to get the weekly reward but I don’t want to play Tenrai Fiesta and those challenges are preventing me from progressing to the normal ones. This system is keeping players from playing and progressing the way they want and it’s very frustrating. Now I have to either suck it up and get through the event challenges or forfeit this week’s weekly reward (Foxwood Seal armor coating) and hope that the next one is worth the grind. I haven’t played in months and the first time I get back on and want to actually get the weekly reward, I’m blocked by the event.
