That would be better but I think it is ridiculous to be paying good $ for a
server and have a startup limit imposed.

You can't play when the server first starts up? When did that change? You
can't accumulate stat points before you reach 10, but you should be able to
do more than "nothing". 

If I'm correct he means that you have to wait for 10 people to get on the
server to be capable of even capturing a flag or have the "round-stats" (not
ranked stats) account for kills/etc made.

And I do think, actually I'm quite sure of it, that it is possible to remove
that "the game will start when x more player(s) join"-message and let people
play _unranked_ as long as there aren't x players on the server. Which would
be an acceptable (read highly apreciated) alternative to me (and many

And the fact that it is possible and very easy to implement this "feature"
but hasn't been implemented anyway is the cause that I rarely play BF2
anymore and DO NOT intent to buy the expansion pack. (I'm proud to tell that
I can't even recall the name of it :-P )

Just as a side note I do not blame any employee or department of either EA
or DICE. However I do blame those two organisations as a whole.
