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.

Still a fun game, but who is Dice kidding, no spectator mode/battlerecorder, horrible netcode, casual community, BF3 is about as far from competitive gaming as it gets, sad to say because BF1942 had a presence in both CAL and CPL back in the day.

Even Desert Combat.

And the devs of DC are making Ravaged.

which will suck, just like Frontlines fuel of war and Homefront. It uses the unreal engine, list all the successful multiplayer games that use that engine... *crickets chirp*

the games they've made come off more like total conversion mods of unreal tournament than professional AAA quality commercial titles, I find them lacking in just about every department, animation, sound, gameplay. They really can't seem to capture a solid through the gun experience.

I'm playing the closed beta and I can tell you right now that this game will be much better than Frontlines and Homefront. In fact Ravaged reminds me of an improved Desert Combat/BF2 game in a post-apocalyptic setting. It has a ton of bugs right now but if they iron it out this game will make up for Frontlines and Homefront.

Hell, I can see the potential for Ravaged to be a truer sequel to BF2 than BF3 is.
