'Matches' Feature on the Way for Battlefield 3
Battlefield 3 is to get a new "Matches" feature to advance the standard for online gameplay, as the official Battlefield 3 blog explains,
"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."
No release date has been announced yet, but more details about this feature along with extra screenshots are available at the link below.
After these preliminary decisions have been made, game settings are determined for the Match. Matches are completely customizable; an extensive list of settings including friendly fire, 3D spotting, squad-leader spawning, kill cam, health regeneration, a list of weapon unlocks that will be made available to players, and more can be set to exact specifications.
