Why is there an option to buy Battlepass levels?

I saw this and it might be the only thing I’m a little sad about. I thought y’all said stuff like this would be earned only through gameplay :frowning:

It’s cool though, the passes don’t expire so buying the entire pass instead of leveling up normally is financially small-brain, but y’all will get bank off the whales who are indeed small-brain, so it works out for all of us!
