And certainly that's fairer for lowbies then?

I am using a proof by contradiction. Summary of the form:
1. Assume that balance is unfair.
2. If balance is unfair, then free must be fairer than balanced.
3. If free is fairer than balanced, then one level should not matter as significantly in free as it does in balanced.
4. One level can make the difference in free, but not as much in balanced.
5. #3 is contradicted.
6. #2 is contradicted.
7. #1 is contradicted. Thus forcing you to accept the contrary conclusion: Balance is not unfair.

To what extent it is not unfair is something that you may dispute. But given that you already affirmed several of my premises, you have already accepted my conclusion.

Yes, and I'm sure the world is flat given that we have thought it to be flat for over 2500 years. Invalid argument.

But we do know how balanced works given that in the initial days, everyone was in balanced.
