Salvaging is definitely longer. A grind became even more of a grind

While I noticed hardly any difference my friend complained about salvaging taking much longer before he found the new one-click method.

I think it has to do with the auto-sort that was added.  Now it sorts for rarity. Legendary on top, (if you're lucky) MW, Epic..... so on.  I find that when cleaning out 50 loot from a freeplay event, it seems to salvage slower on the Higher rarity items, and then speeds up when you get too the purple and blues.  It seems that way for me after a few runs last night.

 

Overall, I don't find it that much slower.

They probably slowed it down to help stabilize the server. Normally in games like this creating items and deleting them creates writes to the database. And when there are thousands or millions of players, each trying to deleting tens or hundreds of items at once it can create problems. It’s possible that is also the reason they placed embers in some of the award chests. Because increasing and decreasing the player’s number value for an ember isn’t as intensive on the server, than if they had to delete an item they didn’t want. The item would have to be created in the database, then deleted from the database, and the ember value written to the database. If the player found the item to be non-satisfactory.
