On Battlefield 2 Exploits

The Battlefield Website has word on how EA is going after stat padding, knife & pistol servers, and other attempts to exploit the Battlefield 2 stats system (thanks Ant and Planet Battlefield). Word is:
We wanted to update you all on our ongoing efforts being taken to punish cheating and padding players and deal with servers that support such activity.

In the month of July the EA tech support team processed 103 reports of Battlefield 2 servers breaking the ROC, such as knife and pistol servers. 310 reported cheating or padding players were processed with many of them subsequently being stripped. We’ve also implemented an improved system for actively targeting knife and pistol servers which should speed up the process of shutting them down.

12 Battlefield 2142 servers were processed as were 150 players, again with a number of those players being stripped when it was determined they were exploiting, padding or cheating.

We process every report of cheating that we receive however we feel that there are many more out there to catch. As such we'd encourage Battlefield players to report any cheaters or rule-breaking servers they find while playing online. We want to see the above numbers go higher as much as you do - the fewer cheaters out there the better the game is for everyone.

If you believe a player is cheating, padding or exploiting, or that a server exists with rules or admins that support such activity, please report it to the EA Customer Support where it will be investigated and dealt with as appropriate.

The whole stats thing was a bad idea, it leads to this crap, and people not playing for the team. I guess it was an anti-piracy move, so they can exclude servers that allow hacked copies of the game, but in practice, it doesn't help in a game already plagued by hilarious load times and buggy code. Since I went back to COD 2, I haven't fired up BF2 once, and probably never will again.
