In one of the community reporter's interview's with Jason Vandenburghe, Phatt Gaming's, Jason made a comment I thought was rather interesting on the game's system of progression. Around the 5 and half minute mark of the video (found here: https://youtu.be/mI8CNuCxUys?t=330), Jason states that through the progression, players gain XP, get gear and stuff, and, what I specifically want to talk about, unlock characters. I want to speculate a system where at the end of each game, players get a currency based on the faction (or factions) they played that allows them to purchase new classes from the factions they earned currency for. I think this would help players show their devotion to a faction while still letting them play the classes they want to play, instead of some classes being locked away till the higher levels. Players would feel a sense of achievement when they unlock that class they've been saving up for. What are some systems you think should be implemented for unlocking characters?

Blurg. Currency systems aren't my cup of tea. I think skins/loot/gear/classes should be earned though completion of specific challenges, or with something like classes where there are a limited number...buying the game for 60$ you shouldn't have to grind your *** off to unlock one of said characters, that should come more easily. Also currency systems these days almost always come along with paid currency systems.
