BF2 Exploit Warning Again

The Battlefield 2 Website has an update repeating a warning about dedicated stat-padding ranked recently sent to EA's ranked server partners (story). Here's the deal:

It has come to our attention that some groups that have rented ranked servers from our partners have chosen to set aside normal gameplay and enforce exploitation of the game logic. This violates EA's "Ranked Server" policy and will not be tolerated.

Groups found to be encouraging this behavior on ranked servers that they have leased risk having their servers de-listed and potentially being prohibited from leasing a Ranked server from any of our partners. Any players found on servers that have institutionalized exploitation of the game system will have their accrued stats reviewed and potentially wiped. A further investigation will be made to review the stats for all members of the group that organized the exploitation.

We have notified all ranked server partners to monitor for this sort of behavior and to report it moving forward. If you are playing on a Ranked server and observe this behavior, please report it on the forums at

Every single game with stats or character building (ex. World of Warcraft, Everquest) has problems, something so huge with so many people - is bound to have problems and a few bastards tryin to cheat the system, theyre selling virtual items for cold hard cash on ebay for gods sake!

oh, and one more thing, imagine, if you could unlock a weapon, and the weapon had even a bit more of an advantage over other normal weapons...what do you think is the result for someone who just purchased the game playing on a server full of veterans and pros? think about it.

it seems like the stats/ranking system has been plagued with problems. I will admit right now that I don't have BF2 (and no plans on getting it) but from what I've read here and other places on the web, they are spending more time fixing/babysitting the ranking system than they are actually fixing the game itself. not to mention all the complaints I've read about griefing in order to accumulate points, and the large amount of time it apparently takes to unlock weapons.

it seems to me like it just isn't worth all the time they are spending babysitting this system.
