My issue with Halo Infinite is you get a flat set of points per match, and that they are incredibly low. Someone who's carrying the team in kills/etc should get more points, and in return unlock more goodies.
But why do you think that?
If someone is carrying the team, doesn't that just imply that the match making didn't do a good job?
If you think it should be: "better you are, the more rewards you get", then do you think they should just reward people in the higher match making ranks more than they do the people in the lower match making ranks?
I ask myself, how do you do you balance reward when risk is removed from the player? Maybe there should be a mode where you queue up into match making and it matches you against better players, and in return, you get more reward if you win. If you lose, you get the same (or lesser?) amount as if you hadn't taken the risk. This allows casuals to just play and have fun regardless of win/lose, and those who want the extra challenge to potentially reap a higher reward if they are able to meet it.

Upper Echelon Gamers has a good video on this subject.
The stats may be a little old but - When 10% of traders are doing 85% of the trading on 97% of all NFTs - it becomes obvious that they're trying to generate a market that looks amazing, at a cursory glance, but is built on crap.
This is where we get the insane stories of ridiculously priced NFTs. They're hoping we are stupid enough to put our own money into it because... look at all the activity and huge prices paid!
How they'd get this to work on derivative items in a game, where the only thing unique is a serial number? I don't think they know yet. Maybe the pricing would be low but the transactions so great that they get enough from that.
/Sorry, thinking out loud a bit. I find this whole subject fascinating and sad at the same time

Except you haven't been able to reliable purchase any current gen console for a year.
So it's a tie at best.
