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.

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.

I've heard that all before from the people who were beta testers for Frontlines and Homefront. The beta testers were so enthusiastic that the game was going to be the next "Battlefield" game, but I was able to play those games in beta too and I felt like I said - like they were just semi-high quality total conversion mods. The gunplay was the weakest aspect which should never be the case for a "shooter", my advice would be they need to start there and make the animation and sound really connect you to your weapon. DICE takes a lot of shit for what they do (a lot of it deserving) but they do a good job with the through the gun experience.

I want to believe but other than Desert Combat they haven't remotely impressed me since.
