Thanks, James. The addition of rank does put some new twists into being an
admin, huh? Used to be a server was good if it had good ping, CPU, etc as
you  mention. I want to say to hell with this game, but I'm too stubborn
and I don't like to lose. I would like to get the edge using mods, etc. I
say we brainstorm and find some ways to stay in the game.

No offense to ranked admins - but EA has pitted us non-ranked admins
against you. I don't like it, but part of my strategy as an admin is now
how to compete with you. I hope nobody takes offense.
