DICE explains BFBC2 server policy

Producer Gordon Van Dyke said files the community needs to build dedicated servers are being withheld in order to "protect the game's integrity on PC".

if there is any profit made by "selecting" partners for the servers i think it will be the gamers. im sure DICE is working on a deal that will include cheaper servers in exchange for a particular company being selected as one of DICE's rent-able servers.. perhaps thats too much faith in DICE, but they really do make decisions with their fan-base in mind. thats something that was really special to DICE and infinity ward until modern warfare 2 came out. now it is just DICE who cares about their fans.
this isn't too big a hit anyway, from what i understand most people rent their dedicated servers and share payment with their clans. so this isn't really a loss.

that's completly naive, but that would be great :)
