DICE Issues Challenge to Help Improve Battlefield 3

By Mike Sharkey | Mar 14, 2011

Developer wants gamers to provide creative input about the upcoming shooter.

Battlefield fans have full forums worth of thoughts on what DICE should do with Battlefield 3 (http://ps3.gamespy.com/playstation-3/battlefield-3/index.html), and now the Swedish studio wants to hear from them directly. In a new community challenge, DICE encourages fans to get creative and funny in describing what they'd like to see most in the upcoming shooter.

On Battlefield community sites across the web, the challenge is now being posted: provide the best input in the most creative way and you'll receive special rewards from DICE after the release of Battlefield 3 in the fall.


The challenge from DICE:DICE is starting a new community challenge asking Battlefield fans to give us your feedback in the most creative way you can think of. We want to know what it is you want in Battlefield 3, whether it is game specific features, weapons, vehicles or anything! We don't just want you to tell us though. Come up with a creative and funny way to get your point across. The three entries that offer the best feedback will be sent a very special present after the release of Battlefield 3!SOURCE (http://ps3.gamespy.com/playstation-3/battlefield-3/1155375p1.html)

To begin with.....

How about restoring;

Choice of GSP
Public Dedicated Server files
Mapping & Modding editor

Things we've had in the past and thoroughly utilized and enjoyed to no end.

You forgot one Mike. No Dedicated LAN support!

There are a lot of PC communities begging for this!

In the past....Battlefield games were a MAJOR LAN game. The support of LAN enabled dedicated servers was a huge draw for LAN party goers to play a huge 64 player map destroying each other all in good fun. Ever since the introduction of "pay for dedicated servers" on the net, this has all but destroyed the ability to have a decent play experience at a LAN party. We at FITES.net sincerely hope you take this large community seriously when we say: No Dedicated LAN support = No Support from the LAN community. You will be cutting out a HUGE following if dedicated LAN servers are not implemented. Maybe take a note from blizzard, utilizing a one time key check over the net and allowing the use of dedicated lan servers on a local LAN. http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/5373259.page

I sure did overlook that one.... but as with the others, they'll never see the light of day. EA is like Activision when it comes to users/consumers;

"Gouge 'Em for all they're worth!"
