    OPINION:
    While there is a fundamental problem with the achievements/unlock, in that those who play more have a dif advantage over new players, this makes is really easy for someone with absolutely no experience to start dominating right out of the gate. Ultimately gaming should be fair to all players, new gamers as well as seasoned veterans. The whole unlock system is problematic for this reason.

    This is also an advantage given to those who can afford it, kind of reinforcing a real life class struggle.

    The only good side to all of this is those who fight their way up will ultimately have the skills, although those who don't have to bother with unlocks will probably have more fun based on the ego boost they'll get dominating the battlefield.

    perhaps buy other people's dog tags, and even your kill/death ratio.

    Heck, they might even play the game for you if the price is right
