Whats the issue with letting someone set up their own ranked server with one of your approved providers as long as your team approves it and it's good enough to play on? I think that might grow the effort. I 'd love to setup a couple ranked servers on my servers to see how theyd do.

A: Money not going towards the one and only provider they have, which juat so happens to be owned by the company some of them work for. u.U Talk about it not being a monopoly there ... the funniest thing is they charge for SLOTS on a 12 y.o. game. -.-"

I use VULTR as well. Why don't you allow that one to be the only approved self-setup RANKED? That way users have a choice and low cost avenue to set up a ranked server for an end of life game? Seems silly to try to hold a monopoly on this. At least have an option!

Yeah go tell them until they ban you from the Forums or kick you from their team. <3 The worst part about it all is that many have swollen and accepted all of this without saying a word and keep having their wallets milked.

Doesn't make any sense. They've done a good thing here but BF2 is OLD. They should want all the ranked servers they can ingest with certain parameters. Mainly....

1. Hosted on approved VPS provider (NO personal ISP's, I understand that one)
2. BF2 Ranked Settings verified by BF2 Revive team

Seems reasonable to me. This way people who are capable will be able to put up their own servers and there will be some control and standards. BF2 Revive will grow and better/more varied servers for everyone will become available all over. Oh well...

Well you see ... in these terms they actually don't mind cheaters and stat padders renting ranked servers from their ... real life partner, as long as they keep paying; but they do care about de-ranking legit communities only because they're hosting great servers through a VPS, just like you described.

This is what Revive BF2 is today.

The only issue with setting up a new ranked provider is that owners must not have access to the server files. Anything else is just misinformation.

Why shouldn't owners who have proven they can be trusted for years and have been helping to grow this project since before you or Spencer even arrived on the scene be allowed to continue providing ranked servers?

This was even promised to us:

Instead now you have broken that promise and lost the best Ranked servers you ever had because the Official ones are a pure-lag mess and [email protected]'s Adminless servers with broken AutoAdmin are shite.

Sure if someone tries to do anything to damage the Database with false Stats then De-Rank / Blacklist their Server & ban them. Otherwise, wake up and open your eyes because this is pure retardation from Spencer & you and everyone else thinks so.

Anything other then doing the right thing here now is simply not good enough, you and your mindless answers regarding other hosting providers are not fooling anyone and just scream GameServers.com monopoly. Who, let's remind everyone; have the same owners as Vultr who Spencer just so conveniently works for? Give over. You are insulting everyone's intelligence and lying to yourself if you can not admit what is really going on.

Good to know loyalty, hard-work & excellence are rewarded so highly here. If this is how Spencer & you plan to continue treating people throughout your lives then I can guarantee that you will not get very far at all.

You should both have a long hard think about these mistakes you've made then apologise to the Communities & Clans you've let down and mistreated. Then perhaps, just perhaps, people will forgive you and stop thinking of you two as a complete and utter pair of twats.
