Dev server golden eagles

I just have a simple question,
why don’t we get everything for free on the dev server because it’s hard to judge new vehicles if we cannot use them.


The dev server is mostly for invited testers and to allow media and “influencer” access to new content. They let the unwashed masses in most likely to get get aggregate data on game play new feature changes. Its not meant to be a free ride.

Isn’t the spending of GE just virtual?
