Our community is providing completely free marketing for EA. We've been 
running 2x32 player servers ever since the demo came out and they've 
been completely full, all that time. We've pushed over 250GB of traffic 
in that time. Yeah, we could have left the timelimit on, but guess what? 
It's a lot more fun without it there.. What's the problem? Afraid people 
might enjoy it too much and spend money on the game? Oh wait, that 
doesn't make sense..

And in return? Stabbed in the back! Thanks a bunch EA. I'm cancelling my 
pre-order, I'll be encouraging the rest of our community to do the same 
and I seriously doubt we'll be running a BF2 server after release 
either. What a great way to treat the community, after all the time, 
effort and money some of us have put into promoting your game. Thanks a 
lot, really!
