ROFL! Well said.
I'll never play on EA's servers. Never did, never will. They are too
unorganized, full of TKers, and you can't have a decent game there.
Everyone I know agrees with that as well, and we'll be playing on
privately funded GSP hosted servers. If they're unofficial, then so be
it. At least we'll have a decent game.
In fact, since I'm no longer hosting, I'll be coming to one of you guys
to rent an "unofficial" server in the US. :)
