Wait wait ... so it isn't just me? I play on pc but have the server browser only return like ... 8 or 9 servers at a time to browse through when I have really open criteria. I think the only limiting criteria I have is the North American region and official servers. Or is this not at all what you meant?
You want official and ranked servers - official is just EA provided servers and there are not many of them
I was under the impression that official was the way to go if I wanted to avoid nonsense like servers limiting weapons/loadouts and abusing admin rights.
