No, the problem with the way Battlegrounds and other games which allow you to buy power isn't that others can't still win with skill, or the randomness doesn't still have a positive or negative impact on you or them.

The problem is they are playing chess and while you are set up with Rooks, Knights, Bishops, King, Queen and Pawns they've been able to spend the money to replace every one of their pieces with Queens.

BTW: almost everything else you mentioned is easily mitigated by skill and knowledge, lack of large scale balancing which usually follows within a short amount of time, or has counters actually built into the game to actively... well counter the effect. Knowing when and how to use them is known as "skill".
