    this is basically the what most ppl do the only reason that there doing is in the hopes it will lower the chance of cracked servers poking its ugly head around the corner.

    Meh. I really don't see why this is getting so much attention. They only released the unranked server files for 2 and 2142, which pretty much no one played on as everyone wanted the stats ( so sad [​IMG], killed off any chance of mods getting a decent sized player base).

    So this time round the unranked ones aren't released and suddenly it's a big deal, even though pretty much everyone played on ranked servers which had to be rented from trusted partners (just like the servers for bc2) and left the unranked ones and mods to rot as they didn't update your precious stats.

    I don't see the problem. People buy servers to host games anyway.

    The problem is price hiking, when DICE is in control of who can host the games.

    Not really as they still have dedicated servers unlike a certain Modern Warfare 2.

    MW2 is famous for multiplayer isn't it? so how come non-dedicated servers became such a big worry? maybe its just cuz it shows they are not very dedicated to the fans?
