It is interesting, probably because it confirms my suspicions ... and fair disclosure, I've gotten in only about an hour of the almost four.  But I have it bookmarked for further progress.

The essence is that players who have not spent money will always be matched up with players who have spent money, enticing them to also spend money.  Screw those guys.

Sadly the gaming industry is full steam ahead going in this direction.  Unless people who buy these games stop supporting micro-transactions and paywalls it's not going to slow down.
