Summary: How to still play BFME online

Hey, I don't know if there is another way yet, but if there is not I would like to share what I know here. As far as I know, servers go down the 31st of this month for all BFME games. So to continue to play this game online I thought of the idea to use the Tunngle server. Its a server me and my brother have used before because we couldnt connect to EA's for some reason. Anyway, I assume that this server would still be up and running even after EA's is gone. So to use this server do the following:
1    go to google and type 'Tunngle' into the search bar.
2    click on the link to download Tunngle
3    After downloading, go to the main tunngle website and create an account(this could be step one if wanted)
4    Close out of your browser and open up the Tunngle application which would be represented by an icon with a Black square and a 'T' in the middle of it
5    sign in and type lord of the rings into the search bar which can be found in the top left hand corner of Tunngle
6    join the server of your choosing (there is one for BFME 1 BFME 2 and ROTWK)
7    open up BFME and when you click on multiplayer, instead of clicking online, click 'Network'
8    host a game and play with other users online

Once again I'm pretty sure this will work even after servers are down. Also if there is a more effective way of still playing the game online, could someone please tell me.

You put the information in the credits part. It needs to go in the article section.

EDIT: Fixed it for you. :)
