Its not poor planing by EA.
EA has said a day or so that they were sorry that its been hard for players to get on ranked servers to play and that they plan on getting more ranked servers up and running. here and in Europe?
Ea has made it unfair for gameserver hosting co.
Its not like the ranked server files and License are a national security.
So why do they make it unfair to players that cant connect to bussy servers b/c of the lack of ranked servers?
If you are affiliated with EA, you get the jump on the market and if your game server hosting co. is hosting ranked servers your a lucky SOB
that your not being forced to look for another provider.
What has been said by EA has not made any sence period....

I said it and Im sticking to it!

Yeah, EA is missing payments from NFo...lol

So what is it anyway, does EA want money for ranked License or do they want 25- 50 % of profits for the ranked license.

Does bad marketing suit your criteria a little better? Because that's also a good definition of it.

I dunno if its supposed to be public information exactly what EA wants out of it, but I can tell you its not a direct monetary payment.

EA wants 10 servers for each "partner", plus one server for every 10 the "partner" puts up for customers. No money is involved, just servers.

Since they desperately need more quality US servers, I'm not sure why they aren't jumping at the opportunity to partner with us. We're certainly much more capable of helping them than most GSPs.

At least I know that its not going to be days but weeks now so I can tell my peeps that populate my server that we have no idea when the server will be ranked.
I just wanted to get my rank on my own server but thats not going to happen anytime soon.
When I first started a BF2 server it was populated 24-7 and now Im starting to see a decrease in players not being ranked. By no fault of NFo
Anyway's, I hope that NFo gets the ranked server license towards the end
of next month.

There is this website called www.purepwnage.com, they make shows about this 'pro-gamer' guy but its really really funny its not about gaming that much at all. Anyway, in episode 3 there is this really funny part, so funny that i was inches from rofl-ing, about EA. It takes place about 3-4 minutes into the episode. It's a must-see.

No, there is nothing new on this subject. EA is calmly ignoring us.
