Similarly, you can say, "The problem I see with RL time being a
factor is that there is not investment in developing the
character. Characters end up with gear simply because they happen to
have extra hours to play."

One is an "investment" in time, one is an "investment" in money.

"The game then becomes more and more unplayable for those who either
cannot or will not spend 16 hours a day playing it."

"Buying items with time also does very little if anything to foster
any sort of community in the game."
