you got to be kidding. you will wait months for them. Since when will 
eagames do anything thats in the interest of server admins? I havent seen 
any evedence that they really give a shit how much we support their product. 
after all we are only here to supply servers for Noobs to play on till they 
are ready to play on real servers
