The official rent a server trailer of Battlefield 3.
Awesome that this is available for consoles.
Very nice. and very easy money for dice lol
IMO, its very easy money for EA rather than DICE.
Doesn't halo have this for FREE?
Technically, no. But many games have a similar feature (Halo included) at little to no cost. The big difference here is dedicated servers as opposed to p2p servers.
Yeah this is pretty cool, I just wish the game played as good as it did before the patch... for me the patch messed up a lot of things, it fixed some but it's a completely didn't game now.. Love the server Idea - indeed a cool feature.. .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
IMO Patch 1.04 is really Great. This is how BF3 should have been from the first. If you're complaining that the Patched messed up a lot of things like frag rounds, usas 12, MK3, mav riding etc etc then you gotta get back to cod. PS : you maV bro ?
Nah I don't snipe at all, no mav riding and I don't use shootguns -that's for NOOB's I'm a diehard BF3 player, Famas was one of my fav weapons.. they destroyed it... -the endless grenade is really annoying.. I don't play COD, I play battlefield and I'm an older gamer so I actually worked to rank up my guns, I didn't buy a gun pack... I earned my rank - http://battlelog.battlefiel... One game at a time.. Most of the guns are broke or you could say work differently now, and not in a good way, the LMG's are now over powering.. IMO Yes some things are better the INRV is now back fixed... most of the time I get a lot of input lag... throwing a grenade -reloading -while shooting.. I'm just saying it's IMO... if you like it more power to you, maybe it's better on xbox but I'm on PS3.. Until the server patch run perk was the same at normal run.. Now that's actually working right.. there are problems, but I guess if you don't play that much you wouldn't know. I played like almost everyday so I notice.. if you didn't fine -enjoy- but don't act like you know anything about it.. -because clearly you don't.. .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
More console games need this feature!
First they should provide Dedicated Servers. Then they can talk about private servers. PS : If you know what game i mean. :P
Oh totally im 100% willing to give that much money to EA for just a server /s. 48 GBP is A LOT of money which would be better spent on a game.
They're not forcing you to buy a server. There are plenty of "private servers" which are open for the public to play. You can always play in them.
true but its a ridiculous price when compared to the competition on consoles which doesnt exist on PC.
Dedicated servers do cost a lot Though not this much, but its EA so this price is expected.
WTF....people, I've done this on games without buying sh** on some stupid rent-a-server feature! How come you all are cool with this? This is taking basic game options (Not all games have this, but the ones that do are free to customize!) and making it a premium feature. (Keeping in mind the potential numbers of BF3 players could outnumber said games. But if the EA servers aren't as good as other game servers, I'm not sure if that would have anything to do with options for a game like removing the hud...)
There is a diffrence between having a Dedicated Server, and a P2P Server Are you new to gaming? Or are you a console only gamer? This is something thats completely normal. Sites such as Gameservers.com can host PC Game servers for you, for pretty much the exact same price. Though there is one thing i do agree with, having to pay to play privatly with a friend is bullshit. Why not make a P2P option. EDIT: Having Servers with 400% more tickets are awesome
No P2P option cause it would work, it'd be a laggy piece of shit, that's why.
Yes but when games like halo do something similar for free its a piss take when you look at the price in the trailer...
But isnt it actually a dedicated server your renting? Completely different then a p2p server. And hell, if you dont like it, dont spend money on it! Im okay with this because other people are renting em and having heaps of tickets which makes it alot more fun. I wouldnt expect them to rent out THEIR servers for nothing.
Yeah.. and instead of purchasing your own server, save money & join someone elses! There's bound to be one that fits your personal preference or liking. I'm liking this new feature already :D
It's a very nice feature, though I wish it didn't cost quite so much. Haha
Wow, another tool for pussies. Last night I played in two seperate servers. On both of them the admin would kill off all the players of a team if he was losing or to get an advantage. Dice just keeps making this game easier and easier for the little bitches to cheat. Play the correct way. I never have or will use a cheat or these bullshit glitches (MAV riding, tact light, thermal, etc.) and yet I have a 2.13 win loss ratio with 489 point per minute. Not excellent, but respectable. If Dice cannot even monitor their servers for cheats, how in the hell does anyone expect them to monitor rented servers. They couldn't even monitor a gas station bathroom.
Tact light is annoying but not glitching or cheating? Hell it gives away their position. I think youre just trying to brag, im sure alot of people have that kind of ratio without cheating or glitching , friend.
Yeah, I got kicked/banned from a game for killing the server owner in a jet twice.
Did you really have to join N4G just to tell us that? 489 isn't all that impressive, hell I'm a completely mediocre player and I have around a 400. Private servers aren't a tool for pussies, they're a fun way to mix things up and tweak how you want to play. Plus it can be invaluable for beginning players to practice things like flying and map layouts. -_-
But they do have a point. Console players aren't to be trusted with such control. It's pretty annoying to have a server owner sad about being killed and kicking people out. I'm already back to exclusively playing DICE servers.
Agree'd. It can be annoying to have a server controller boot you for killing him (happened to me while piloting an attack chopper many times) But on the whole, this is a good thing.
I do think it would be a good idea if: (1) Dice could monitor any of their severs and boot the cheats, and (2) the players who create the servers can control themselves and stop acting like babies and booting people that kill them or are making them lose.
yeah whenever that happens you need to report the admin/server and if they're found in violation no more server for that assh*le.
i have a 2.5 K/D and 4.0 W/L ratio :P. I ALREADY BEATZ YOU!!!! although thank you for giving me the chance to make me feel special. Also tac light is not "cheating". I only get annoyed at shotgun users since they're ridiculous in this game (havnt played in a while tho so dunno if they've been patched). Also my play style is relatively stealth orientated. If i use a tac light its ussually off unless i need it to blind a group of enemies and then mow them down with a M249 :3.
the GREATEST FPS of all time(period)
Not sure if serious or just trolling
Resistance: Fall of Man had all these options including dedicated servers for free
You can still play on dedicated servers for FREE on BF3. What's your point?
ah I love it, easier to get into a game now compared to before with all the rush servers being full or not enough room for my friends :D
