Full Story

Let's all hope BF3 alt+tabs ok!

Hrmmm.... very mixed feelings here. DICE have always had difficulties with their server browsers on release - I can only hope this is their way of fixing the issue... Doesn't sound too good to me though.

They should have implemented an overlay type server browser (ala steam) in addition to the web based battlelog.

Perhaps origin could be used to deliver this down the track...

quote from a dude thats played it I suppose :
" you forgot many people talk out of the butt just to rant.

It’s VERY fast, quite nice to look at, you can make group with friend by drag-droping them in the group, group join servers, you have more filters than BC2, you can keep browsing while the game is loading in the background and THEN it pops up.

No splash screen, ALT F4 takes 1 second or 2 at max, alt tabbing is very efficient.

I’m sorry, but this system is way better than any I’ve tryied. "

This application is going to kick ass compared to the rubbish we've been dealt with in-game even since... BF2.
The only let down is going to be the alt+tabbing, but other than that, having a stand alone server browser I think is going to have less implications than that of an in-game browser.

Having the ability to group join a server is a fantastic feature! Maybe we can even have more than 20 players on our friends list

I sense a disturbance in the force, as if millions of gamers screamed out in angst and then fell suddenly silent.

That is an awkward sounding mechanic they're discussing with the battlelog site. hopefully it plays out better than initial impressions.

Given most of us will spend 90% of time on a TOG server, using friends list as well, could care less how simple or advanced this is.
