Battlefield 3 "Matches" Plans

The Battlefield Blog announces details on a new "matches" feature coming in the future to Battlefield 3 (thanks BF3Blog). Here's a bit on what these matches will bring to the military shooter sequel:

We’re taking the next step in advancing online competitive play in the Battlefield 3 community. The “Matches” feature will allow players to coordinate competitive multiplayer sessions with their friends and squad members. Battlefield 3 players will be able to select the time, server, game settings, and roster for their Matches creating a controlled and definitive environment for competitive play.

Players will be able to coordinate Matches for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 through the Battlelog. 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.

None of this would even be necessary if you could download and run your own dedicated server, like in the good-ol-days. I know they make money by renting the servers instead, but it also seems to cause them to have to do a lot of extra work that is only necessary because you can't just download the damn server and go. I wouldn't surprise me if this whole scheme is just break even for them once you add in the added developer costs and support headaches and the like.
