Ah, that makes sense.
I do wish it was dependent on skill though, at least a little.
Well, if your skill is high you'll probably win more, and you get 200 FP for a victory whereas it's only 100 for a loss, so basically your skill at winning is rewarded.
I don't see myself playing this long term for such minimal gains due to no fault of my own being thrown into matches that are already 50%+ over with on terms of points.
Thats what everybody gains, but joining late you're just gaining it faster than others so in fact you should be happy.
Whether the current earning rate and/or the prices are final, who knows, we've just started closed beta and they've only just begun gathering data on progression speeds.
