BF2 Stat Padding Crackdown

All's fair in love and war, but Battlefield 2 is a game, and to that end, EA has notified their partners in the BF2 ranked server program that their tolerance for organized stat-padding shenanigans by clans is coming to an end. Here's part of the note, as reproduced on Battlefield Nation from their forums.

As a group, Ranked Partners included, we need to work together to aggressively crack down on any server that is found to be promoting stats exploiting in order to maintain the integrity of the stats system.

The following steps will be taken each time we locate a server exploiting through enforced admin rules:

1. Customer support will strip the stats from those caught on the server at the time of discovery and anyone sharing a clan tag with the offenders that seem to have any anomalous stats.

2. We will contact the Trusted Partner who has leased the instance in question to the offending clan and request that the clan is immediately moved over to a non-Ranked server. This clan should not be given an opportunity to lease another Ranked Server from said partner, as they have too many avenues of coordinating exploitative actions.

3. If said clan continues to have access to a Ranked server, we will be removing the IP of offending server from the validated list shortly after contacting the Ranked Partner connected with them.

I finally got the game today, and you know what I'd like EA's first priority to be?

FIX THE CRASHES SO I CAN F*CKING PLAY. I've checked around on forums looking for solutions, and I'm FAR from alone. I hope EA realizes that 75% of their customers aren't even going to bother to figure out why they can't play. They're just going to shelve the game or return it.

Of about 3 different kinds of crashes I found (CTD's within 10 minutes of playing on a server, hard reboots in the menus, and freezing in the server browser forcing a manual reboot) I was able to fix 2. Unfortunately, crashing is a bit of a gamestopper. So since the issue of crashing to the desktop within 10 minutes of playing still remains, I can't play. I can't even accrue stats which would lead me to envy the stats of cheaters.

EA needs a quality assurance team for their quality assurance team if this is the sort of crap they're missing.
