    For the most part these are pretty old, but some of them still have a huge active community playing. I read somewhere (but can't find the source so take with a pinch of salt) that this is partly due to EA. They pulled a load of their own servers mid March, are turning off more in about 10 days time, and refuse to pay GameSpy to keep the service running for their games, so GameSpy have to shut it down. Could be conjecture, everyone loves to hate on EA, but they are so horrendously stupid and don't give a crap that it might well be true....

          The Steam search works fine.

          have done so much with so little for so long
          we can now do anything with nothing."

            To clairify... work well for A3, can't speak about the rest. I just discovered the Steam search option for servers, and its very well organized.
