The intent of F2P, is to show "ok, here's our game. You can do MOST things without paying a dime. but if you want the very best experience, pay up". How is that unfair? Conversely, if I'm a paying customer, why should the fella beside me, who's playing for free, get access to everything that I do, free of charge?

It's not unfair. But you've got to be careful about what you consider "most things". They went too far when they included things like "sprinting" and "xp" in the list. The idea is to put your best foot forward, and convince people that they want to keep playing. They really haven't accomplished that here. I was actually tempted to fire it up again - and I'd paid to play it previously. But the degree of lockdown means that I won't be - and hence won't be giving them any money at all.
