MP1st - "The biggest question we’ve been hearing from much of Battlefield 3′s console audience is, “where did all the DICE servers go?” DICE Community Manager has the answers.
It's all about the money nothing else.
Just give us options to tick on whether to show only Official EA/Dice Hosted servers or only rented custom servers. Better yet, Give an option to hide all rented custom servers. It can easily be sorted with a quick patch.
Apparently they are considering this, if not I want my money back. This update totally ruined BF3!
At the very least people need to stop with the 10000000000 ticket games. Edit: @Wenis Thats not only invalid but also untrue. In Bf2 roflstomps on CQA maps were over pretty quick. And since admins could be just as much of dicks then as they are now, it happened pretty often. Karkand was near unplayable if one team had all the coordinated players moved over.
No. Believe it or not, there was a day when BF games use to last longer than 3 minutes.
i love being able to play for more then an hour on a map. It feels like you've accomplished something. Also ive noticed the losing team doesn't give up as easy if there are more tickets. If you guys want standard servers back, then why not rent one yourselves? they aren't that expensive
Just go to the search option and type in -[DICE]- and you will then find the official servers. If and when you cannot find a single one then start complaining.
what about all the chodes putting [DICE] on their server name? After you click on it you still have to make sure the owner is Dice and not xXBro_Dawg666_KornXx
You will not find official servers with all maps that way. For EA servers with all maps I think you need to type p23 or p24, but almost every official server are gone.
This doesn't work, it takes ages to find them, the selection includes ALL games on servers that are not even in my region. Dice should just set aside some servers and stop being in it just for the cash.
Meh. They've lost a customer and a fan. Let them cater to their new fanbase of all the CoD kiddies who got bored with their games. I won't be missed I'm sure because one leaves, two more will take my place.
oh! this wasn't asked by the community? hmm seems every negative decision made is blamed on the players who" whine" about this or that, so this topic clearly shows dice has no idea what it is doing and what its fans want.
Dice please stop telling us its what everyone wants. I have been a loyal customer i should be that everyone you speak of. I am the reason you can make all these dumb changes to BF3. Please take a second and reflect on that.
i had put days and days worth of hours into BF3s multiplayer on 360 before this latest update came out, and i have 100% completely stopped playing it now. they ruined the game. matchmaking should be official dice servers, server browser should include rent-a-server rubbish. if they dont fix this, im done with BF3 for good.
yep, I've had around 300 hours put into it, I've service starred every weapon and classes multiple times , and was having a blast before this patch. Since that patch that SURE it fixed the FAMAS and USAS frags, but it bought a hell load of other problems to the game as well. Now I only play about 2hrs. a week IF that. How'd DICE go from the perfection that is BC2 to the mess that is now BF3. Some would say catering to COD crowd or EA's greed..idk but whatever it is DICE needs to get it fixed. This is coming from a BF vet since BF2 and has spent hundreds of hours across the BF games.
Well, it makes sense that there are rent-a-servers. If we get dedicated servers, we should get have the freedom to own our own server. Yes, the majority of rented servers are pure retardation, but I have no trouble going through a couple of pages to find a server labeled "DICE".
tbh i dont have a problem with some rent a sever.Sometimes you can come across a good server with the right amount of tickets and great teamwork on both side. My problem is the noob ass admin. some servers have.I killed one person over and over with my gun but once I took his tags he banned me.Couple nights ago an admin kept fuking switching me from team to team.but thats my only problem oh and that 870 shotty is garbage.
Yeah, it's a headache playing with admins who act like god. I had some admins booting guys out of choppers and stealing them. Admins should not be allowed to do this. Who cares if they paid. Set up the game the way you want but play fair. Pussies
sick of being booted by admin havent really played much since update because of this
Same here. I just bought the game last week in that $20 deal from best buy, and ever since, I've been getting booted/kicked and sometimes banned from servers. I read the rules they put up, attend to them, yet still get kicked.. ;/ Apparently, it's because I kill the admin when he's in a birdie or beat him/her at his own game. It really just sucks.
Fuck me u guys need to chill the fuck out.just pick a game and play.shit aint that hard
put the power in the peoples hands and they still complain..
cant wait to get out of work and get on. finally getting the hang of the aek after coming from the famas.
