I wrote a petition awhile back which I will deliver to EA when it reaches 500+ signers (getting close!)
if any are interested you can find it here:

I have to say that IF unranked servers = non-EA servers then the tone of
this 'update' is unbelieveably arrogant. Unranked (non-EA) servers are
just good places to learn how not to be a n00b??!?!?!?!? Please......

If this is the case, I will likely boycott hosting the game. This is a
level of arrogance not seen before. If, however, all admins are allowed to
choose whether their servers are ranked or not is another story. If we
have th choice I don't see a huge problem with this structure.
