Do I have to spend money to compete in this game?
Title pretty much covers it: I haven't really played the single player much, just quick multiplayer matches and special challenge. Right now I'm lvl 19.
Anyways, when I check the equipment of the players who kill me, quite often they've got much higher stats and all premium or super premium items-- so far in my experience, the only way to get premium items is to buy them-- I have one that I got in a card pack I bought with my 40 free tickets.
Is this game an arms race where you have to buy Happy Tickets to keep from constantly having your ass kicked?
