The time you have invested in your stuff should be respected.[/i]

This notion of time being 'respected' keeps coming up again and again.

The continual dependence on the game's value in being guns and armor as rewards is what is actually killing, and has always killed the game. If the time you spend is only valuable because of your reward, then take the reward away and now your time is felt to be wasted. The entire approach is flawed. The only winning move is not to design a game this way.

The time should be intrinsically valuable. The road the joy and not the destination. Guns and armor as a means to have fun, not as an end themselves.
