I also am NOT happy about this.. I run a small webhost / gsp and we want our OWN server's to offer to our clients, not some untrusted 3rd party rented servers. We want them on OUR network using OUR IP's and DOMAINS.

As a gamer, I want to USE MY server, where I have root control and the support team I can count on.

This is just more crap thrown at us PC gamers and its likely to get worse unless we ALL do something about it.

I for one am not buying Bad Company 2 unless they give public dedicated server files. I want to be able to host a lan party with my buddies like in the old days.
