Yes, EA did a fine job killing off the small clubs because of the Ranked
Its a shame as all the little clubs help promote the whole BF Series.
We are a large club and we have a Ranked Server.
But we are not happy with the situation that EA has placed upon us.
We took pride in running our servers, adding things to make our server stand
Now we just pay money to have a Ranked Server. That about it!

Hah. You think that's hard? Try building a non-ranked server. Complete
waste of time. That's why this list is dead. All the non-ranked server
people - the ones who do it for fun, rather than profit - have pretty
much given up at this point.
We've switched to running the PRMM mod on our server (Google for it).
We're having limited success. Other unranked servers might want to try
it.. maybe we can grow the global player base. Maybe not.. Either way,
we're basically done with BF2 until something else comes along. The
whole thing has been a huge disappointment for our group, but it's a
lesson learned - we won't be buying any game in future which has a
ranking system like this that excludes independent server operators.
