They already discussed that, and all you get with RTC is nifty weapon skins and Elites. If the devs decided to go down the route you suggested, then the game will have already been dead when they decided that. And if you're too much of a puss to earn your Elite, then I guess you didn't really need that $25 did you? Could have bought a bunch of other games with that money, but noooooo they're too soft to earn it. Besides, those chumps are helping to continue to fund development of the game, so honestly I'm not gonna complain about it now that I think about it. Let them blow their cash, in the end it only helps me.
