I would like to know what motivates you to stay and play this game?
All the whining excluded, I like this game.

Not true at all. I pre-ordered BF3, I've played a fair share of BC2, BF2, BF1942 but I still play this a lot more than any of them. In fact, the money I paid for BF3 could have just as easily been spent on cheap booze and fat-drooping burgers. To be honest, I don't think I'll ever play BF3 much, it's just not good enough. Sure the graphics are awesome but it ends with that.
The only other BF-game I actually consider revisiting is BF1942 (if I could find it somewhere [legally]).

Credits are a good way to test new weapons and see which ones you like most. Once you've found that out, spending $10 will get you a primary weapon and a handgun on two soldiers, or if you choose to buy just a primary and a pistol on one soldier and then some attachments to improve that primary weapon. Having one soldier with a good primary weapon and a sidearm will enable you to save credits for the other soldiers on the same account.

Or am I just missing something?
Yeah, you're missing the fact that you don't actually need to spend any money at all to play the game if you're a casual gamer. Spending $20 will pretty much cover both your free soldier slots expenses for primary and secondary weapons if you know what you're doing.
So yeah, you're clearly missing something. How much money you spend is entirely up to you.

Kthxbye, enjoy your other games.

Basically they want you to spend some money and that will give you the edge over others playing mostly with just basic stuff. But still, if I want to pimp just SCAR for example it would cost me good 15 USD which makes it completely pointless for me. That is just 1 weapon. There are what, 3 - 4 classes? Each having at least 6 rifles. Final price for the game would be ridiculous.
I don't know where you're getting your numbers or what weapons you're looking at but to totally pimp out my rank 1 engineer on an alt account, getting the UMP, Close-in barrel, CQC-ammo and a balanced stock (a decent selection of attachments) plus the holo-sight (which is an entirely optional attachment and really doesn't add anything to the weapon stats-wise), you'd have to pay a little over 10k funds. 10k funds is what? $8-9 or something (probably lower than that, I don't have the currency conversion rates in front of me).
Battlefield 3 is what? $60? For those $60 you can get 2 additional soldier slots, primary weapons for all 4 soldiers and probably still have some funds left.
