So does that mean we might see one for FH? I know it's been asked a bajillion times, but I figure now there's a chance I can get a straight answer, so I'm taking another whack at it feedback.gif

I know i do. Things like artillery (if there will be any in FH2),heavy tanks and planes should be locked so that only the highest ranked players on the server could use them. Planes especially. There should be a pilot-license award... My question is though: where the hell did you hear this was possible?

I've played on ranked clan servers; they probably received special permission from EA, either that or the filter is screwed up and I played on a server that only claimed to ranked:uhm:

isnt the whole problem with the ranked servers that they attract only score-whores, and guys with too much spare time?

No, I guess they need to pay $$$ to get a ranked server, or then they rent the server from EA.

Mods can't use the ranked servers feature, only bf2 with stock configuration.

In comaparision, non-ranked servers cost $4-6 per slot [quote=Gauntlet]isnt the whole problem with the ranked servers that they attract only score-whores, and guys with too much spare time?

You obviously never played on the ranked servers, else you will see that there is absolutelly no problem with them (besides the associated lag). Stat-whores? Define stat-whores in BF2's refined scoring system. Are stat-whores those that will do anything to get a point for reviving a dead soldier? Are stat-whores those that will breath in your neck with a resupply bag. Are stat-whores those that will master the art of stable flying, or precision driving, so that their passenger/gunners would get easy kills and the driver will get the points? All of these only benefit you. I would greaty appreacite 3 medics bunny hopping to me, trying to race each other to get to revive me. In the end, i get the benefit of being revived as soon as possible. All will greatly appreciate a guy glue-stuck to me with an ammo bag, so i don't have to worry about running out of ammo. I would greatly appreciate that "stat-whore with too much free time" that mastered to perfection the chopper flying, so that i could get the best available platform to gun from. And in what other incarnation of BF do you see people rather stay back and defend the flag, rather then run away and leave it empty? Stat-whores? Sure they are. But the actions the stat-whores do, the actions the stat-whores are rewarded the stats for, those actions only benefit other players and the team!

You can have the stat whores, I prefer to play with people wanting to have fun,as far as only the best players should be allowed to use tanks and planes and the cool stuff,Ya that sounds like fun to me,shure,lets just go a step further and spwn them with no weapon to make your score even better,not everyone lives on PC games.You can be the best player but if you only play 2 hrs a day vs the guy who is so and so that plays 6hrs a day he will get the better stats. I never argreed with the ranking system,there are some players out there that are soso and have your advage scores and all that does it hurt them,so how fare is that? Just wait and see how far the ranked servers are going to get,in 6mos I'll bet there will be more players in an unranked one then ranked. CrimeScene

Not true CrimeScene! I'm an average joe player, I'm nothing special, my aim isn't to good, and etc. but I still do well on the ranked servers. I played for maybe 2&1/2 hours and got three awards! (basic combat, ground defense award, and ground defense ribbon) It's not that difficult really, you just have to cooperate well with your squadmates, which isn't difficult since on ranked servers everyone wants to do well. And really, the whole point of the game is to work together AS A TEAM, and take down the enemy. In fact, it's probably MORE fun to play on a ranked server, because you are THAT much less likely to run into an idiot who goes around TK'ing everything in sight, and you get people who are willing to listen to you, and work with you. Oh, btw I forgot to mention this, the only advantage higher ranked guys have is that they get slightly better guns, which really aren't that hard to unlock anyways.
