Battlefield 3 Getting Arranged Matches

To give the Battlefield 3 competitive scene a helping hand, DICE is working on a new 'Matches' feature that lets players set up and schedule closed servers for their bouts. It'll all run through the Battlelog, but you'll need to be renting a dedicated server. "Players will be able to coordinate Matches for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 through the Battlelog," community manager Ian Tornay explains on the Battlefield blog. "To coordinate a Match a player must be actively renting a dedicated server. Once a dedicated server has been selected the Match host can set the Match name, start time, game mode, team size, and map rotations." You can also set rosters, so only certain players are allowed in. Then there are options to tweak and fiddle with settings from friendly fire and available unlocks to health regeneration and squad leader spawning.

There's no word yet on when the Matches feature will launch.

Or ya know, you could have just given us our own server option from day one like over 90% of games had in the last decade. Hosted it ourselves from day one.

But ya know...gotta earn that golden poo for a reason now don't you EA?

Yes it will make your wang bigger. But only if you drink anti-freeze to keep your computer from freezing up and BSODing from all the WINNING.

PC has always had this option. My group has had one at all times and have a second one up from time to time (2nd not taking off much as it's a rush server mainly).

We swing in quality at times, but tend to draw a pretty damn good crowd.

We learned early on that fast vehicle spawning gets rid of most of the spawn humpers (5 on a jeep/tank/heli) and all in all results in less people leaving.

Progaming capability of BF3 is damn low. Maybe cause game itself is about as skillful as D3. Nah, actually less..
