BF2 Stat Attack

A post to Total Battlefield 2 (thanks Cliff) describes how Battlefield 2 players have had weapons unlocked for them by folks who have found a way to get into the system, saying: "Well, what a wonderful few days it has been. Since EA didn't take the time to respond (or maybe even read) our emails about various stats-server security holes, it clearly showed us how much they care. Therefore, we came to the conclusion that modifying 5 million accounts wouldn't be that big of a deal." This inspired the following response from EA:

In the future, if you really are concerned about "exposing security holes" to EA (which I sincerely doubt) rather than grandstanding, please e-mail me personally since it appears that you don't have the correct contact info. I will PM you the address.

All of the changes made will be rolled back in the next couple hours. Users may have to rechoose any unlocks they would have legitimately made in the last day or so as a result of the roll-back, but no stats should be lost.

God I loved Tribes 2. I still cry about what was Tribes 3. Can't wait for http://www.starsiege2845.com/splash6.html (if it's ever released)

Anyway, BF2 has potential but obviously needs 6-12 months of patching. Haven't played it since the first patch and by the time they do fix it I should have the next Flashpoint, UT2007 or Quake Wars to satisfy my strategic FPS with vehicles fetish.

Better luck next time Dice.
