DICE has quadrupled the amount of official servers available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Battlefield 3.

The move follows complaints from fans - and us - criticising DICE for its decision to replace official servers with player-rented servers.

"We have heard your wish for more official DICE servers," read a statement on the official Battlefield 3 blog. "As of now, we have effectively quadrupled them on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

"Note that you will still be able to get quick matched into any ranked server. For the best results if you want an official DICE server, please refer to the manual server browser and enter 'DICE' as a search term. If you go to the Server information screen, all official DICE servers will have the owner set to 'DICE'.

"Remember that you can favourite servers that you like so you can easily find them again on your next session."

Battlefield 3's third expansion pack, Armored Kill, launches in September.

Does this mean that there are now 4 official servers?

Sorry, that was a little obvious.

I still didn't really see a problem with the lack of official ones. Never really did mind the tickets being more.. Always gave longer to play! :D

Anyway, they're back now. I gues this will stop some people complaning in time for Armoured Kill.

Too late now EA sold the game, just proves my point they cut corners with their games. The damage was already done for me and I'm never getting a game just for MP by EA again now.

The new MOH is gonna go straight past me now until I rent it for the single player.
