Where are the Dice/EA normal servers? (xbox 360)

Hey duders (dudettes),

So today i downloaded the big patch for battlefield 3 on the xbox. i love all the changes except one, where are the normal console servers or the Dice/ea ones. I'm not really familiar with PC servers. The problem is that every time I do a quick match, i always get a server with a some stupid name and it has different settings and flag locations.

I understand that people like their servers customized and i respect that, but I can't seem to find a normal game like I did before the patch.

Now i don't really know much about servers being a console gamer and such, but any knowledge/explanation on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

I posted a thread about this last week, but you can search for servers by typing DICE in the search area for 360 and PS3. Bad news is that there aren't many servers, and they fill up quickly.

sorry i guess i didn't look that much your thread, but thanks for the answer. it feels like dice took 1 step forward, two steps back

My thoughts exactly. Why not reserve more space for DICE servers for those who want to play on normal servers.

I went through and marked my usual DICE servers (Epic Battles, mostly) as "favorites," which works pretty well. I agree, on patch day it seemed liked there were no official servers up, and I was pretty concerned that I'd be server-hunting each morning for 10 minutes before I could get a game going. Now, however, there seem to be more official servers up, and they're not quite as packed.
