More validation nodes needed, maybe a new proposal is needed?

I'm somewhat new here but as I understand it a select few node operators are chosen to validate transactions when they are nominated during a POW stage. Lately this network has been struggling to keep block times consistent. Lately the validators have not been operating at 100%. Rewards are delayed as a result, people are upset at the coin, not understanding it's the operators but it comes back on the us all in the end. Maybe we need a new proposal for an alternative to the current node operator setup? I believe the rewards for operating the nodes are currently too high, maybe we should spread the rewards out to more operators. 275,000 per validation period, can anyone confirm is that for the node operators or what happens with that reward generated at the end of each validators timespan? Here is an example of a 275k reward. [https://viewblock.io/zilliqa/block/959299](https://viewblock.io/zilliqa/block/959299)
