More Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Capacity Coming

The Battlefield Blog announces plans to take down EA servers a couple of times for maintenance, saying this will affect all three Battlefield: Bad Company 2 platforms. They say they will "come up with even more hardware with more capacity to handle all the BFBC2 traffic. Once the maintenance is complete you will experience an improvement to your online experience." The update also outlines some stats from the battlefield:

Since launch a week ago, BFBC2 has already put EA servers through the following stress:
The 4 different soldier types have gathered a score of more than 34 Billion.
There's been more than 400M kills made.
1.3M roadkills
Squads and Teams have assisted each other to 6.2 Billion points.

Hey Dice, you want to multiply your BC2 capacity in an instant? Release dedicated server package to the public (linux/windows). But, if you ever do I require payment of $1mil for my bright idea.
Funny is... first I thought that may be an idea for preventing hacks/stats exploiting/cracked playing. But after I saw that there is an account required where your valid CD key is stored into this all seems a bit nutty... If you want to play cracked you have to reverse engineer the complete ea-authing to gain access to the multiplayer part. This kind of effort stands in no relation to the price of the original game.
