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
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
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.
