EA this makes no sense at all, you want to offer us servers to rent but then tell us that we will have almost no control.
No 3rd party plugins means a lot of communities will not rent all the servers they had planned to rent.
No price difference between player count means that people who rent for low count modes will be punished.
Not being allowed to change how many players can be in a gamemode means that mixed mode servers will be a joke, if we are even allowed to mix modes. It will suck to be playing a 64 man conquest match then get kicked because the next map happened to Rush. Just knowing that I can get kicked because the next game mode in the lineup is smaller (by force) makes me not want to join any mixed mode servers. Hell I would not blame anyone for not offering a mixed mode server.
The part that really chaps my ****, is that we all have been forced into this. EA has made the call that they want more money and that they will not allow 3rd party server hosting. But then has nothing prepared, have to spend weeks getting even the most basic questions answered.
