You might be prepared to do this, but I think you'd be in a minority. 
The idea that you can't fully use the game unless you play on an 
"official" server is sheer lunacy. All my clanmates, and server regulars 
pretty much play on our server only. If people need to jump on an 
official server to boost their rank, it will destroy the community.

I mean.. I have a dual opteron machine with 2GB of ram, sitting on a 
100Mbps connection which is basically dedicated to running BF based 
games. We're already uncertain about whether we're going to move to BF2, 
and this is just another reason to tip the balance in favour of not 
doing so (which would result in at least 100 people or so not buying the 
game. Small potatoes, I'm sure, but I bet it adds up fast).

If anyone from DICE is still reading this list.. it would be nice to 
know if the interview is indeed correct, or if we're worrying about nothing.
