BF3 MM a Joke

I can't stand this custom server garbage. It works on PCs, and it works great. But on a console? Get bent. This is by far the stupidest thing I've seen in terms of console gaming and it had instantly turned BF3 MM into the worst MM system I've ever had the misfortune of using. Overall great game, but the MM factor ruins it.

I know I know, do customer searches. No. When I play on the game, I don't want to spend 5 minutes waiting for the menu to load, and another 15 flipping through crappy servers until I land on one that looks good, until you join and it's 500% tickets and a combination of conquest, rush, and TDM. When I put in "Rush" in quick match, I don't want to play on joe blows server.

Not only that, but some of the stupidest admins of all time. "NO USAS, MASS, ACW-R, UMP-45, PP-2000, etc. etc. YOU WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY KICKED!!!! WE PAID FOR THE SERVER, YOU DIDN'T!!!" That's cool, so whats up is now if I want to play the game how I want to play, that's ANOTHER piece of criteria I have to manually search for in the server list.

Overall, disappointed. I don't recall ever seeing anyone ask for it. Ruined the MM for me, selling the game tomorrow while it still has a little value to it. :sol:

If you want to play the game how you want to play, you can start your own server but like they said, you'd then be paying for it. I sympathize with you, but most of the guns that get banned are usually attributed to low-skill players who just run around holding down their fire button spamming a scatter gun until they get killed. While you could argue that in some way it's beneficial, you have to understand why that style of low-skill play earns the ire of most players who are decent or consider themselves decent.

Specifically in Rush you'll see the auto-shotties disabled because they promote lemming-style play and that isn't fun for anyone. Particularly not when the entire team is being funneled toward two points anyway.

There are plenty of people who like to play the same way you do, but since your style of play is widely regarded as annoying, you'll have to suffer some annoyance yourself to track down servers where it's allowed or even encouraged. Either way, everyone will be annoyed.

What do you mean "your style of gameplay"? Just because some try-hards like you don't like one aspect of the game, DICE made is possible for you to attempt to warp the game to fit your narrow playstyle? If you were actually any good, you'd know that maybe, just maybe, you shouldn't corner camp when theres a guy running around with a shotgun. I supposed C4 is a no-no too because very little to no one has proximity scanner equiped? That's just stupid. Your idea of "annoying" is the games idea of "gameplay". If a glitch was being exploited, I could understand, but it's not. When you get hit with a 12 buck round, you die. Getting mad that the game's damage counters aren't balanced to fit your "one gun, one method" gameplay doesn't justify banning an entire set of weapons all together.

Also, you should know I use light machine guns. I'm one of the few players who understands "supressive fire" and not just "OMGDFASDF THERES A GUY LITS ALL RUSH HIM AT ONCe12#!@" You know, marking targets, distributing ammo, and setting up positions close to where the rest of my squad is running to lay down 200 shots of "go ahead guys, they can't see ***."

Banning a gun because you're too stupid to find a way around it is lazy. Complaining shotties are overpowered is a bullshit argument because the patch screwed them up, and if theres even a tiny bit of lag, they're useless.

Your 'argument' right there is the reason this needs to be removed from consoles, or at least don't include them in MM. Let these shitty servers fall off and spare the rest of us the narrow dribble style gameplay of every 15 year old who doesn't understand how the game works.

The shotgun hate is the vestigial reminder from the days when shotguns + frag rounds were literally broken. You can't overlook that without coming across as dense, regardless of the current state of the game.

To be clear, my KDR is ridiculous and I don't have any problem with people running around using shotties. I'm just speaking on behalf of the very obvious majority for the sake of giving your original post some kind of response, since it was otherwise kind of an aimless venting-session between you and yourself.

I think that before you label me as a "try-hard" in some derogatory manner, you should first ask yourself why you're playing the game on the console and not on the PC where the vastly better competition is, and at the same time ask yourself why anyone including me should remotely care if you quit the game. All I did was try to offer you a little perspective to help your thread avoid being a one-and-done qq session, which is what it otherwise is. Maybe you should just relax in general, guy.

Official DICE servers use all the default game rules. You can play on those. I don't mind servers that don't allow frag rounds in the shotguns as the USAS with frag rounds was a total spam fest in earlier versions of BF3.

I do wish most servers would list if they are using more than the default tickets. I don't mind 200% tickets on some maps, but more than that gets tedious.
