EA limit the number of partners by country (one in France) for Ranked 

Anyway you need to put 10 public servers online + one every 10 server rented 
for be partners (if I remember good) so mean you need to ask for high prices 
for the servers so mean you need some warranty to not have lot of 
conccurence around you so mean they give exclusivity to few hoster...

People are asking for ranked server because the stats and the weapons you 
get when you go up...(that you can get easily with some tweak)

Think that you can't do what you want with your servers, that you need to 
put servers online even if you get no customers, that the prices need to be 
high compared to other games (so mean less people can rent it)... is it 
really worthing it?

And think if the game is too bad (like Pacific Assault for exemple) and you 
still need to put 10 servers online for 1 or 2 years even if you can't rent 
any server...

Personaly I will not take the risk for so less especialy with all the games 

If they didn't get the ranked system I think they would probabily get more 
server on so mean more people buying the game because the price would be 
more affordable for players... But it's only my opinion...
