This isnt counter strike, its perfectly accessible to noobs.

1. Level up to get your first weapon unlocks.

2. Stop sucking.

3. ???????

4. Profit

You just suck at gaming, level doesnt matter in this game, you can right away start owning people at level 1 with the default character lay-outs.

Unfortunately, the now what seems to be standard leveling=unlock system found in all of our fps games is set-up to benefit no-lifers and those that are willing to pay actual money for an advantage over other players.

Your average gamer will never have enough time to put into this game to stay ahead of the leveling/unlock curve and thus will always play at a disadvantage to OP no-lifers -- especially with free to play cash-shop'ish types of games......

High level gear will always be OP; wanna know why? Why else would anyone be tempted to spend real life cash on high level gear/stat unlocks, if the lower level gear was just as good? Wanna know why the devs will constantly re-balance weapons/introduce new ones over the next year too? So they can nerf the stuff you already unlocked/bought with cash, forcing you to buy the new OP stuff.....

tl;dr: greed sucks

reading this i gather that

1)you're lucky they're using this model so your cheap @ss can get in on the ground floor instead of waiting 2 years for it to drop from 60$ to 5$

2) if 25$ as opposed to 15$ is too much to be spending on video gaming for you, you should probably hold on to the 15$.

3)it'd be much simpler for you to adjust your attitude on buying games in several pieces than for them to change the game to all-you-can-eat for one price. besides the food at buffets is generally much poorer quality.

tldr: ffs, it's only 15$ to start; how else are they suppposed to do things?

If you put any amount of time in the game at all, you would realize that NO ONE can buy an OP weapon in this game. What you can buy is strictly cosmetic (meaning "just for looks" - it gives you no combat advantage)

You can by an XP boost for $3, and all that does is increase the speed at which you gain XP. Again, NO COMBAT ADVANTAGE.

Pysops obviously never played the game, there is no "high level gear". When you level up you earn an unlock and you use the unlock to access ANYTHING you like, there are no level restrictions.

I'm level 52 but am still using the same quips I was using at level 10

1) I stopped reading at "immediately 5 people disconnected". This game has join-in-progress that works quite well. If your complaints are based off insignificant minutiae not worth complaining about, your rant is not worth reading.

2) Leezeebub, well said. +rep

As posters above wrote...
You get a key that unlocks stuff and you can unlock whatever you want. Also default builds have great weapons and gadgets.

Default builds were actually my inspiration for the sniper and ninja build I'm using.

Check your ping in-game, a lot of that sounds like you're lagging and to everyone else you're standing still firing at nothing while they run up and hit you til you die (and by the time your system catches up it looks like you gunned someone down and then they 1 shotted you)

You should publish that story and maybe your book sales could get you your money back.
