The new barrels in the Frontiers Pack take up less space - is that fair?

I purchased the pack for Rust for a mere € 12.39 and tested the items. Jesus, wait for a sale — unless you want the gameplay advantages of the Frontier Pack:

The new storage options of the barrels are hardly more expensive to produce in the game than normal large chests, but can be used much more versatile and space-saving. With the two different shapes, vertical and horizontal, you can accommodate more storage space than ever before:

  • In a square room: Up to 8 large boxes of space are easily achievable, 9 are possible, and with a bit of squeezing, even 10.
  • In a triangular room:
  • In double triangular rooms: 6 large boxes fit comfortably, 8 less comfortably.
  • In TC (Tool Cupboard) rooms: 7 large boxes are possible.

When placing, you just need to consider the collision boxes of the barrels because they are square. So, occasionally, you have to rotate the barrel during setup to fit it into a corner.

But what do you think? Are the new barrels in Rust really so unfair or even Pay2Win, or does it not make a gameplay difference whether you use the €12 skins or not? Please let us know your opinion in the poll!
