Microsoft does it too, Activision and EA should all pat themselves on the back. American companies coming to fuck the industry sideways. :)

EA to add more DICE servers to Battlefield 3

EA has denied claims it shut down any official servers hosted by it or DICE, forcing players to play only on rental servers. “DICE is not shutting down servers,” an EA representative told Gamespot. “If DICE-managed servers appear unavailable, it is because they have been rented and customized by players. DICE will continue to add servers and will reserve a percentage of servers for players who prefer to connect through DICE-hosted servers.” Earlier in the week players were complaining that it was almost impossible to find a server to play on that wasn’t rented, and an official server searchconducted by VentureBeat found 17 EA run servers, but no servers run by DICE.

Indeed. But, that's only a slight bump on the road to glory



Gamers will bitch and moan, bitch and moan, bitch and moan, but at the end of the day they will then go out and buy the next EA title, Call of Duty, etc..., further enabling this stuff to go on.

Stop complaining and just stop buying their games. It is really that simple and is the only way to make things change.



iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.

Currently playing:

Final Fantasy VI (iOS), Final Fantasy: Record Keeper (iOS) & Dragon Quest V (iOS)

Sounds simple in theory, but the truth is that some gamers really are like drug addicts. Even if they know that it's poison for them, they still need to get their next dose.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I don't think you can blame us gamers for this... EA/Dice changed the rules when we already bought the game.. When we bought the game they did a good job in the beginning.. first I was playing multiplayer with half an hour matches and now I'm spending more time in 1 match then the entire singleplayer combined.. I can't go to the store anymore and exchange my copy after 6 months.. of course I'm gonna complain.. and bitch.. and moan.. so they won't pull this trick again in the future

Wait, what's so bad about Call of Duty?
What are we "enabling" by buying this game every year?

Is Activsion screwingn people with "rented servers" or "online passes"? Are they removing content from their games in favor of Call of Duty Elite?
That answer to all of this is NO.

Activision is a SAINT when compared to EA and Ubisoft.

The worst things in this industry such as Day 1 DLC, Online Passes are NOT supported by Call of Duty. So naturally, you should support these games over ones that do, should you?



Yea the private servers are why I haven't played the game in weeks, and might not even get the map pack when it comes out. I don't want to sit and defend for 500 tickets on Grand Bazaar. It is simply unreasonable. Not to mention, if the game ever is unbalance and the offense starts off with less players in some of the smaller maps, then spawn killing the offense will take place, especially on Operation Metro and Grand Bazaar. So as much as I played Battlefield 3 and enjoyed it, really don't have too much intention of playing it until normal servers come back frequently. Fortunately Max Payne 3 and Ghost Recon Future Soldier come out soon so will have more multiplayer games.



game companies are damned if they do and damned if they don't. Nothing is every good enough,for any game of any genre. You can't please everyone. I personally don't care. I'm on rank 40 and I'm just trying to get to rank 45. So,I like the rent a server thing,because it allows me to get more points,with less games. I lose alot of rounds,but also win some 2,it's all good 2 me.
