Look at our ranked server.


We couldn't get our own CLAN to play on our (unranked)server, even though
the servers they were playing on (ranked) were laggy, smacktard full, and


Our (mature) gaming group, still elected to play on the laggy ones so they
could get "rank"


We eventually dropped our un-ranked server, and went to a ranked one.


I think their business model is working rather well.

Then we simply won't support it.

With some of the upcoming stars of 2006, I don't think
I will worry much about one game.

But it does prove the point that ALL of the marketing
people from the movie industry that made the DVD mistake
didn't all go to EA.  It appears they spread out a little more. ;-)

I don't have answers, I can just do our part in not perpetuating such
a system.  Kill it now.  The demographic for FPS'ers is larger than
just kiddies.  As the population ages, and us folks that grew up with
ATARI 800's still love to game as much as we did in out teens, we
won't put our money in.  That is power.
