its not a "problem".. you clearly havent played the game - you can unlock plenty of things in 2 or 3 days playtime, with no money spent.. the money and the xp unlock the same things, and its a very quick process
Sigh. Yes, I have played the game. And no, you're missing the point. It doesn't matter how long it takes to unlock things. Even if you could unlock everything within a few days (which you can't), the simple fact that you start with basically nothing means new players are at an inherent disadvantage. Take two equally skilled players and give one of them all the unlockables while the other has none. The player with the unlockables has a distinct advantage. This isn't really debatable. It's common sense.
Jerykk I would argue that the advantage you speak of is minor. Some people have huge monitors or multiple monitors and tribes 2 ascend lets you set your own FOV by actually typing the number of your FOV desired into the gui. You can say that someone with multiple huge monitors or a faster PC has an advantage and I would agree with you. But I really think the advantage of some of those upgrades is a minor advantage that I'm willing to live with.
