[bf1942] Attracting Players

I can only speak for my club which has been around for 8 years starting with
Valve and then EA Games Servers.

In the last 3 days we have gone from having 21,581 players since BF2 Release
to zero players. (this can be proven by Server Spy on our main page)

Everyone has gone to ranked servers with all the bells and whistles that
they offer.

For the first time I am faced with shuttling the Pirates Bloody Cove or
seeking another game to host.

EA, to you I hope that you are proud of yourself for driving out the small
server operators.

Our club has support BF1942 and Vietnam but now with this Ranking Server our
future supporting EA is in question.

We are a club that is committed to maintaining a safe and a fun server for
our wayward net sailors to call their gaming home port.

Sure we could rent a Ranked Server but then that's all that our club could
afford. Right now we have a host of options by operating our own box.

I will stick it out one more month before I decide to drop EA.  It is a
shame that EA has done this us!
