Matchmaking

I would like to know if there is a way to filter out the rented/custom servers when choosing quick match on the 360.All i want is to play regular conquest as it was up until the most recent update.I truly hate getting into a match where theres custom settings and especially when the tickets are set to max.If anyone could help me with this i would be very grateful.

I think you have to search for Official EA/Dice servers in your area. You can do it, but it's not obvious nor easy. I have also read that there are not many of them left since the rent a kick/ban has been in effect. You may sit in que for quite awhile.

I mark them as favorite as I find them. There aren't many left and they are almost always full. Also there are some private servers that are using the [dice] name so they look like the offcial servers.....till you start playing.

 This entire rent a server thing is getting stale. EA fail.

Use the search feature and put in one of the following... DICE, P23, or P24. You'll get the DICE and EA servers.

 

Before you join the server, click A. That'll bing up the server info page. Make sure the owner is either DICE or EA

We pretty much always play conquest on the PPC server with standard ticket settings, it is hardcore, but if your ok with that feel free to jump in.

 

It seems that every time Ive played in the 2old2play server it is also running conquest with traditional settings.

 

I guess I may be in the minority here, but Ive enjoyed the private servers and the game in general much more than I did before the update. We have gotten in some really good games on the PPC server and have a coupe of other clans that have obviously added us the their favorites as we have been seeing them alot.

+1 This private server thing is a huge win. For other custom servers, I read the server description and if it looks good, I mark it as favorite, a feature I didn't use at all pre patch.

I never use quick match, because it has a tendency to put you in the most popular/almost full servers, hence a greater probability to join some 24/7 billion tickets Metro server. As everybody already said, use the search engine, read the servers description, most have retarded titles but are ok nonetheless with pretty classic settings, and mark them as favorites. As for the DICE servers, I almost always find some empty ones at the end of the servers list, I don't know, maybe it's because I only browse east coast servers. If anything join the 2o2p server or the PPC one, they have pretty classic settings, as Kahuner said.

Thx for the input everyone,i did add both the PPC and 2o2p servers to my favorites and will start trying them out first from now on.I would like to see about getting invited to PPC since i already know a few members and it seems like theres more active players in that clan then anyone else.

One thing I've found is that official servers dont seem to run conquest at all. Also they dont give me the option to favourite them.

Well, that's not true at all smiley

 

I play conquest 99% of the time, and I've never had an issue finding an offical dice/EA conquest server

Interesting. When I searched about it was about 50/50 between rush and sqdm. There wasnt one game of conquest. Just an anomaly maybe.

Yeah, you might have caught them all in a rotation that was not CQ.  Strange but possible I suppose.

This may be a silly question, but do you have conquest enabled as a gametype in your search parameters?

GOOD POINT!

this is a must when you first get the game!!!  You can set fav. servers now too - so i go into server browser only when i want to find a game.

Yes I do in fact I normally filter out rush! And last time I searched official servers I only got one CQ and about 10 rush.
