Custom option for servers!

Did anyone else notice the newly added "custom" option on the server screen now? Also, I  noticed on Hardcore mode it actually alternates between Rush and Conquest! Before you had to select one or the other... I bet some big server changes are coming with this patch!cheeky

Alternating was good but I would like to play both sides on Rush.

They have also named the servers," Epic Battles"which is the 6 large vehicle based maps,' Soldier Skirmishes" all infantry friendly maps, "Most Popular" self explanitory, " BF3 Classic" the original 9 maps,"Urban Warfare' all urban map types, and " Back to Karkand Only" self explanitory.. I like this, if you want to play vehicle maps only  or infantry maps only you now have the option instead of a pre- determined rotation!  +1

The strange part about this, is by quick match, you would think specifying game type "conquest" would consider that you only intended to play conquest... but I ended up in a B2K ONLY server, which alternated rush/conquest on B2K maps.

Not too bad though, got to play rush on Wake Island, which I hadn't done previously. (not a huge rush player in this game, although I was when I played Bad Company 2... go figure)

 

all in all, i'm liking the mix up... promotes playing out of your usual. broadens the gametype activity...

Thanks for the recap

I saw that playing yesterday, little confusing at first but I think it's a great idea.From what I saw most of EA servers, if not all, still get the classic maps rotation and DICE ones offer something like a more complete meal.

I am still waiting for a colorblind mode but this is a nice little tweak
