I think we should be asking why BF2142 was being played at a LAN party, not whether or not EA would do that.

Well firstly 2142 is great and secondly, guys at my college play BF games over LAN all the time, even BF Vietnam.

Ugh so now they're buying people off to use their shitty online service? Typical EA.

Now that this is out on the internet, how long is it going to be before hundreds of people try to claim the same thing happened to them, and EA stop doing this because people are being dicks and abusing their generosity? I give it an hour or two. 3 at most.
