This is just a hunch but I think the removal of NT2025 was made so that they can gather more data as players are now forced to play the default maps. The more people playing the default maps means more data Treyarch gets and they are currently working on a TU to fix the lag.
Treyarch already acknowledged all the other problems of the game except for lag. I believe that the removal of NT2025 is one of the necessary steps in finding the cure for the lag over-compensation.
I think they know about the consequences and the upheaval but I think there is a deeper reason for the removal of NT. I believe that this is a necessary sacrifice that will bring them closer to a fix. They know that they will anger their fans and I believe that this removal will only be temporary. Once they bring down the lag to acceptable levels, they will bring back NT 24/7.
WOW, dumbest representative I've ever dealt with. "We intended to give the map away at launch, there was never anything stating it would be pre-order bonus only." So I guess the waves of bonuses didn't matter.
2 hours of my life wasted.
We never close. We NEVER close. WE NEVER CLOSE
I can see why theyd want to for purposes of exp farming, but what does "We never close" mean to you all? How can they not stick to their guns and keep their word on that? Just because things go a way they didnt intend, they are justified in taking it out completely like that? What can we believe out of their mouths now?
I was raised to never contradict my words with my actions. Treyarch should pay a price for lying, plain and simple. I know this kind of thing happens all the time in the business world, but to be so blatant and shameless from a company I thought had some integrity disgusts me.
