From what I understand, the issue is the difference in the amount of time it takes to grind the experience points to get the same stuff vs just buying it. You can buy on day one everything you need to get a competitive advantage over someone who doesn't pay and has to spend hours and hours to get the same equipment.

It creates an unfair playing field in a multi-player environment between those who pay vs those who do not. Those who are getting beat in multi-player, not on experience alone but by better equipped players who bought their way to being better equipped rather than grinding for it are playing in the same matches as those who aren't paying for the perks up front.

At least, that is how it's being explained to me.
