Default Star Wars: Battlefront: No Server Browser or Rentals

In the wake of the Star Wars: Battlefront Beta announcement, which will take place during October, it has been also been announced that they are getting rid of server rental for this game, and switching to a skilled based matchmaking system.

The question was asked by an avid fan:

A trusted source just told me Battlefront will not have server rental, but only EA Official servers instead, that's so wrong... @EAStarWars

This was confirmed:

Just after this shock announcement, Sledgehammer70 (Community Manager) then posted this:

This will really set the cat amongst the pidgeons, as the Battlefield series has been one of the last Bastions of old school PC gaming, with server browsers and rented servers. The fear now is that the whole Battlefield series will follow route.

Back to square one.... The more things change - - the more they remain the same.

Its no wonder new games and updates for the PC are all fancy replays or same old - same old.

I have yet to see *anything* now or, on the horizon that is truly new and attractive.
