Add enhanced server browser features
Acknowledged, HighPublic


The server browser is lacking some features:

  1. Favorite servers
  2. Queue to join server
  3. Blacklist option

and that's just a short list

Missing option to save favorite servers is still annoying

I was under the impression that the server browser in ARMA3 would use a steam implementation and not the horrible one from Gamespy?

From the top of my head I'd like to see:

  • Favourites
  • Being able to filter better (think Wildcards)
  • An Exclusion filter as well (To remove Wasteland)
  • Having the stored list used as 'default' for polling ping instead of having to wait for master list updates every time I go to the MP list or change a filter
  • A working filter (Entering anything in ping times results in 0 results..)

Arma 3 is still Alpha and we are currently still working on the server browser UI. Stay tuned ;)

Thanks for the update. Fingers crossed :)

Suggestion regarding favourites:

  • Allow users to mark servers as favourites
  • Store favourites locally
  • Make it possible to, when clicking multiplayer, to load the FAVOURITES list first with cached values and allow for a manual (or automated if selected in options) refresh.


Oh boy, you got me all excited :D

don't let us down... :P

yeah having steam as the browser would be very nice.

queue is a must.. especially with full servers.... The ability to add a White List so that paying members are moved to the top of the queue would also be nice...


  • addon autofilter (show only with matching/whitelisted addons)
  • addongroups: server, client, both
  • server side blacklist/whitelist for addons
  • filter options:
    • mod (match/exclude)
    • servername

I have fingers crossed that the game will use Steam server list in future to stop the piracy and CD key thefts and furthermore decrease the number of script kiddies dramatically because they wouldn't have endless supply of CD keys anymore, that would render the anticheat program(s) useless again...

lets not forgot option to join steam friends pls!

Yes! Im getting tired of UP DOWN UP DOWN UP DOWN free spot! ooh missed it UP DOWN...
So yes, imo queue and favorite servers are really important. Addon filter.. that would be really nice!
