I was over my friends house today and watched him play some BC2 on his PS3 with some of his friends on the PSN. they were in a private match. I was wondering if we could do that on the 360 but i only see the option for quick match and doing a refined search when you have a squad. If anyone knows anything on this respond if not voice your opinion on the matter if you think we should get it or why we should not.

The private match is available when you go into "play with friends", press X and you will get a lobby for a private match.
What really sucks is that you need 8 players to start. I don't even have that many friends who play.

Yeah, that is the one stupid thing DICE have done with this game, not allowing most people to play private matches to PRACTICE because of a lack of friends. It's not like it will affect anything else, so let us play by ourselves and just dick around the maps.

I think its a sin you cant do local offline games. You could have quite a bit of fun just messing around with a mate 1v1, lol.

Yeah just guessing, but i think they did that to stop boosting. Still i would have liked a offline/private version, just to screw around with mates, no stats attached

Whoa I didn't know your stats attatched for private matches. I think when the servers were down someone set up a private match and I couldn't tell it was private because I unlocked stuff. Doesn't this defeat the purpose of a private match.. i dunno

Sorry dude, I think you misread that. I've got no idea if the stats are attached or not, would just be nice to have a mode where stats and that didn't.

Reading some of these posts I need a clear answer, can you get XP/unlocks in private match?

This is one of the only truly disappointing things about this game for me. IMO every MP game should let you start a private match by yourself. Particularly a game like this where you can have fun just running the maps, controlling vehicles, and blowing stuff up. GTAIV is great for that - just go into free roam and wander Liberty City blowing stuff up and fly/drive where ever you want.

Boosting really isn;t an issue - most games either have to XP in private matches, or a simple toggle allowing private game with no XP would be simple.
