Star Wars Battlefront won't have a server browser

14 posts in this topic

I've been dubious about EA's dedication to Star Wars Battlefront. But after announcing how it put all it's focus into the multiplayer, surely we could count on all the bells and whistles of a major multiplayer game destined to last for years, right? 
 
 

In a post by the Battlefront community manager on reddit, it was confirmed that there is no server browser anywhere in Battlefront, instead relying on a matchmaking system:
 
Star Wars Battlefront will not offer a server browser, but will utilize a new skill based matchmaking system.

Obviously the reception to this wasn’t great. Server browsers are a pretty essential feature, and pretty importantly this removal precludes the chance for there to be third-party dedicated servers. When EA pulls the plug for the game’s servers, there’s a good chance the game itself will go with it.


Oh... Oops.

It's official, EA does not give a shit about its fans for the Star Wars.

And EA expects that the game will sell 10 million copies in the first month, half the copies that Skyrim sold during it's lifetime.

Whatever, it's fine when I play CoD. That would make the game feel too much like Battlefield to me, which wouldnt be a good thing, as I despise thoe games

Even if this is an attempt by Dice to detach Battlefront from Battlefield 4, you don't it by taking away features. The right thing to do is to add new ones or improve what's already there.

Battlefront will be a fail like Titanfall. Doesn't matter how good the system is, without the ability to choose where you want to play, even the best games die quickly.

To be honest i'm not a fan of dedicated servers since i they tend to kick you for whatever dumb reason in most of the games, but i do respect and understand that most of the people like it for more reasons than the one i stated since i'm well aware they do have a lot of advantages.

 

What i'm impressed is that everyone is really mad about this and i expected to be less controversy around this subject, i did not see this coming really.

 

I guess i'll stick with "hurr durr no clone wars era or space battles" thing for now until i find another reason to hate this game aside that this is not a battlefront game or anything of the sort.

 

It could be at least a Battlefield game, but it isn't either unfortunately.

 

What is this then? i don't know.

Seeing how Steam Groups were made to boycott Black Ops or Modern Warfare 2 because of the lack of Dedicated Servers, this isn't really surprising. Course, the people in those boycott groups still bought the games they were supposed to not buy. I suspect this will be no different.

People is starting to realize:

I'm really happy this kind of stuff is being posted, and hopefully more will come.

I think someone needs to tell that guy consoles can have dedicated servers too.

I know right? Warhawk and Starhawk had dedicated servers. So do some games on the X1 and 360 (think Gears do).
