I guess they should realize that they cannot populate game servers based upon their website alone the way they are doing it. We've seen this happen for years on end now. Same thing, every game.
With all due respect to the server mods, and the amazing job I truly believe they are doing, I agree. Any search you do, set the filter to show all servers (from full to empty) and you'll see--there are literally hundreds if not thousands of empty BF3 servers. Even the "company" servers, with YouTube videos up (like EVGA and NCIX) have empty servers 90% of the time. As a community, OCN has so many members that can help piece together things that could promote the servers and the site:
1) Challenges-- "Think your team has what it takes to roll with OCN..? Prove it.
2) Videos of server game play-- not just invites like the other guys do
3) The promise of active admin and the !votekick option

This also happens to me all the time. Even if I favorite, the servers disappear after I restart Origin. Finally had to bookmark them in Chrome.
Also, I voted hardcore. Personally, I think HC players tend to get "into" the game a bit more, want more of a challenge--when the risk of death is greater you play more carefully; and I think these are the gamers the server should appeal to. One server HC the other non-HC, simple.
