Evidence of said foul play can be found in the video below.

Planetside 2′s cert gain rates and costs for unlocks have been adjusted, and the time investment for weapons has been reduced by 30% on top end weapon unlock, according to SOE. The adjustments will allow players to earn points two times as fast as the current build, but cert prices on abilities and attachments will be doubled in order to even out the changes. Weapon certs will remain as is, it will take players less time to unlock new items with some weapons even being cut by half. When the game launches on November 20, players will notice the various costs schematic, which will come in five different categories. That should make things easier to discern. Head over to RPS and the Planetside 2 forums for a more thorough explanation.
