Hey guys,
I have searched around the net but can't seem to get a satisfactory answer on this. Will BF3 be supporting dedicated servers? I'm not talking about the BS that was "rent from one of our partners (who pay us a hefty fee for the privilege)" that was with BC2. I'm talking straight LAN/internet dedicated servers to run on your own hardware.

We may be able to get some NZ servers then and will also be very useful for LANs.

It will be the same as BC2.

NZ servers will be run by On3 and maybe Orcon.

Ah no. Might not get the game then as its not really practical for LANs.

Unfortunately I think we will not see many games now that will let you run your own server. Your right it is a pita but what we will have to get used to.
