This is incorrect. More BR = More options in PS1. You can argue that options is a form of power but it is one thing to give you access to equipment and quite another to improve its performance. This is a very significant difference.
Actually both statements I made were correct and accurate.

1) Maybe you were one of the very few people who got maxed out on all the merits, but for the rest of the world, it is an infinite grind. Now instead of grinding for merits, you'll be grinding for minor skill bonuses that arn't game-changing but help sharpen your edge.

2) More BR = more versatile = more powerful. For example, if you are able to have HA, Engie, Med, and fly a Mosq ALL at the very same time, I don't see how you can even begin to argue that doesn't make you more powerful than a BR5 player.

In both cases, a rose by any other name is still a rose.
