I think we as a group can do a better job of policing that DB than EA
can/will.   We don't have our pocketbooks on the line..

As well,  it would work just the same if it was only local.  And only I had
access to MY stats DB.

Even more of a pull for people to play on my server continuously  (as soon
as we have a "favorites" anyway.

I'm all for that idea, but your still going to get the problem of people 
hacking the stats if they have access to the files locally ..

My thoughts exactly..

As I recall, Microsoft's Allegiance stopped being supported after a time,
and the community put together its own servers ect..  (still out there

I am not sure whether they had MS's backing or not..  but then again, this
is release week, and we couldn't quite get away with something this quick..
(they would call their lawyers no doubt)

We have access to the code, And we can im sure mod the python to check a
local DB to grant unlock access, hell we can even point our clients to a
server using host files. So what if EA blacklists us, we can point our
clients to a different master server the the community maintains.

There are two kinds of gamers in this community, clanners and pubbers,
they dont get along niceley and im sure the clanners wouldnt mind
fucking around with unlocks, even if it means they cant play on EA
servers and cant "dominate" the pubbers, that really is not that much
fun abyway =Þ

One game, two complete sets of master servers, ranking servers, users
and admin.

We will conquer the world pinky!
