We wanted to update you all on our ongoing efforts being taken to punish cheating and padding players and deal with servers that support such activity.

In the month of July the EA tech support team processed 103 reports of Battlefield 2 servers breaking the ROC, such as knife and pistol servers. 310 reported cheating or padding players were processed with many of them subsequently being stripped. We’ve also implemented an improved system for actively targeting knife and pistol servers which should speed up the process of shutting them down.

12 Battlefield 2142 servers were processed as were 150 players, again with a number of those players being stripped when it was determined they were exploiting, padding or cheating.

We process every report of cheating that we receive however we feel that there are many more out there to catch. As such we'd encourage Battlefield players to report any cheaters or rule-breaking servers they find while playing online. We want to see the above numbers go higher as much as you do - the fewer cheaters out there the better the game is for everyone.

If you believe a player is cheating, padding or exploiting, or that a server exists with rules or admins that support such activity, please report it to the EA Customer Support where it will be investigated and dealt with as appropriate.

You mean like *searching* for the words "knife and pistol only" in the server name list? I wonder how long it took em to think that one up?

Here's a link to a more "official" article:

And now for their August Update:
EA wants to own the world wrote:August Reported Servers and Players


Any Battlefield player knows the joy of getting in close to your virtual enemy and cutting off their dog tags as a keepsake. Defeating them with a pistol shot ranks a close second for humiliation hilarity. That’s all well and good, however some players are simply using knifes and pistols alone for hours on end to pad out their stats. We like to call them stat padders. We also like to wipe their stats for cheating and shut down the disallowed servers they rely on

In the month of August, the EA Customer Service team dealt with 350 Battlefield 2 padders and 215 Battlefield 2142 padders with 75 servers investigated between both those games. All of us at DICE would like to thank the Battlefield support team for continuing to up the ante on their anti-stat padding efforts. These anti-cheating efforts will continue as we want to bring the best possible Battlefield experience to all those playing fairly.


Makes me want to almost start playing again... almost.
