Praise the lord and pass the ammunition, DICE have officially launched more official servers for Battlefield 3 on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. How many more official DICE servers? Well, that number is unknown. But it is known that the official servers have been quadrupled, meaning it will be (counts on fingers) four times easier to get into those officially ranked matches.
With all of the new rentable servers clogging up Battlefield 3’s online multiplayer (not that that’s really a bad thing, if that’s what you’re looking for), it’s become increasingly harder to get into DICE’s standard servers, which utilize standard ticket counts, map and mode rotations for its games. Getting dropped into a player created server using quick match, you never really know what you’re getting yourself into until you’re off and running. Then you’ve got to go through the process of dropping out, jumping into a new server, and hoping you have a better go of it this time around.
For those looking to play in standard servers, doing so should get a whole lot easier starting right now, as DICE has upped their own servers by 400 percent on the PS3 and Xbox 360. No word yet on if they’ll be making a similar move for PC players, but we’d assume that’s a pretty safe bet.
The announcement was made official through the Battlefield 3 blog, which also reminds players that getting into an official DICE server can be accomplished by simply entering “DICE” into the search field. You can also favorite servers when you’ve located them, making future visits that much easier.
According to the post, the addition of all of these new servers was a direct result of DICE listening to feedback from Battlefield 3 players. Wait a minute - a developer that listened to their fans and responded accordingly? My reality has officially been torn asunder.
