good to know,

 

my ps3 only seems to like the EA and Dice servers, (well the ones with the words EA and Dice at the begining)...

 

and it occasionally joins the others...

 

dnt know why, dnt care why, as long as i can play when i want to lol...

Dice's are by far the best. EA's are very hit and miss...

I can only ever join the Dice / EA servers, or the 'SERVER<number' ones. I can never join an 'lhrbf3ps3<number>' or '<number>-PRGM<number' server - anyone know why? Friday night was appalling trying to find a European server I could actually join.

Same with me, spoken to EA twice over this, first they said it was permissions on my account, then they said it was corrupted data..... Don't care any more as I got Dice servers back lol

 

Still don't know why quick match wont work :(

I don't get any issues. I've not done anything with ports, PS3 isn't in a DMZ, using a wifi connection, the router is in a different room with signal never getting above 55% and its the ISP provided router :p

 

BT Homehub FTW :D

 

#HootHootHoot @Randygoodlove :P

 

Though I did struggle to find games the otherday :(

Thanks for the reply - at least I know it's not just me. I assume quick match doesn't work sometimes as it tries one of the servers that i can't join manually (eg an 'lhr' one) , whereas others it picks the Dice servers etc, so basically, it's just your luck if quick match works or no.

 

Anyway, at least I managed to get on to a server last night now that the Dice ones are back.

I'm on Virgin too, and stick purely to Dice servers as anything else can be sketchy. It isn't always, but can be.

The quick match function to my knowledge has NEVER worked for me....

 

Tried it in the week of release and tried it last week.... but as Tricky says the server browser works with no problems...

 

Could it possibly be caused by  location?

I suspect it's due to the large number of hit-or-miss servers in the pool. Quick match may try and connect you to ShoddyEA5867 which you wouldn't connect to through server browser or whatever...
