On Battlefield 3 Unlocks

Battleblog #5 on the Battlefield Blog talks about the unlocks and rewards in Battlefield 3, saying there are "years worth" of such perks to be earned in DICE's upcoming military shooter sequel. Here's a bit:
Back in 2005, Battlefield 2 was one of the first shooters to introduce a deep persistence system to add that extra layer of tasty rewards and unlocks to keep players returning to the battlefield for hundreds of hours. With Battlefield 3, we are pulling all the stops. Compared to Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3 will have more than 10 times the hardware unlocks spread over weapons, weapons attachments, gadgets, and a huge unlock tree for vehicles alone.

Skill and dedication equal rewards
On top of these ingame hardware items, players will also be richly rewarded with medals, ribbons and service stars displaying their skill, commitment, and teamplay prowess. You will be rewarded handsomely in Battlefield 3 for exemplary skill, such as capturing X amount of bases in one round. Excellent teamplayers who keep the teamís vehicles in mint condition and revive fallen comrades will not go unnoticed either. These type of skill-driven rewards are typically handed out in the form of ribbons, and good players can often get more than one ribbon in a single round.

"Pretty sad that we have to have this meta game of unlocking and upgrading our gear."

What gets me as well is how much time is spent to balance the gameplay.... only to have it totally unbalanced by allowing peeps with way different perks or lack thereof, with those who have not leveled up yet. There`s some logic for yas.

For the record, I could care less about unlocks and rewards. Cause the way the system is now, you have to pretty well have no life and just have your gamefreak on 24/7 to get them. Hell, I just got tired after 100 hours and just bought the Specact Kit. My uber fav weap being the M16, and I had to buy it just to get it.

Freaking sad state of gaming affairs.
