DICE/ EA improved the Servers of the Console Versions of Battlefield 3.
cheers Dice.. Hopefully now, I'll be able to *actually* find your official servers.. rather than teh rented ones.
The rented servers are the reason I don't play this as much. Sometimes I don't want to play Firestorm 24/7 with 8 million tickets. I might play more now.
I dont like that certian maps are super common, and some are never played. I cant remember last time i played sharqi penInsula.
"Just search DICE!!! And you find the official ones!!!!" *Searches "DICE" finds 50 rented servers with the word "DICE" in it, shuts off game again*
Just click the server, it should say admin: DICE. Then favorite it. I have no problem finding official servers.
I rather not bother. I favorite an official one and it ends up full all the time. Decide "whatever ill just play on a rented one" and it almost always has messed up "can't be better than me!" rules, or lopsided teams.... I went from literally playing BF3 almost 24/7 (pushing my limits on sleep for the day) to not touching it at all after they added rented servers. Not immediately, because it wasn't "that" bad at first, but then it just started sucking.
What system are you playing on? I generally play on 360, and I have no time finding an official server. Also, if you need to find a rented server try searching "normal" "classic" or "vanilla". It's really annoying that we have to do this. DICE should make finding a "normal" BF3 match without any BS easier, but hopefully these tips work out for you.
PS3, just tired of "searching" to find a game. Eventually the game will get ruined by "elite" jet people that do nothing to help the team other than kill people at spawn points, so I want to leave and have to find another server. If DICE would just put Official Servers ONLY mode in quick search, then I'd gladly go back. Till then I'm honestly on the verge of trading the game in.
About time dice!!!
I heard the reason they are doing it is because game server rentals are dying off. If they die off more i could see a sale or price reduction.
The official servers have always been there Idk what the big deal was
But they at least should introduce a way to sort it properly. Yes, you can use Search but there are plenty of 'DICE Classic Server' which are not official.
Yeah sure there is a ton of servers now but there is nobody in them just a bunch of empty servers!
