Move the map pack to a USB flash drive and only plug it in when you want to use the new maps.
This revolution junk is bullcrap, we should have the option of turning off DLC content in public matches like you could in MW3. Since downloading the map pack 3 hours ago, it takes me absolute AGES to find a game to join, and those are poor quality connections. I don't know what the crap is going on but i regret purchasing the revolution package, now that i can hardly play the game now.
Would be nice to have option to turn off dlc but this is common problem with dlcs in 3arc games. First not all people bought dlc, second some of those who even want to buy dlc they can't because regional lock so lot of people don't have dlc and it takes lot of time to find players and searches are expanded to global because of lack of players
Result is long waits and more lag lag lag
so glad i didn't waste my money, 3arc have had to much of mine with this game already lol. i haven't played since it came out as i figured with all the downloading etc it would be a total cluster f*ck to play. i really want to know how many suckers wasted their money on this.
they so should have put the option in to disable it like MW3, just shows the lack of fore thought or effort 3arc put into this game.
You may want it but does not mean they must do it or have to ever do it.
Honestly, Dragon, I think the only reason I come here anymore is to see your posts, filled with intellectual goodness, about how "doesn't mean they have to" or "multiplayer is a bonus... they can shut it off anytime"... you're such a fucking knob, dude. Stop being the COD Defender and be a real fucking person. Every time someone whines(for which there are plenty of reasons in this game), you feel the need to impose your 9000-posts-deep brand of justice. I really wish you'd find a new hobby. Like patrolling schoolyards, telling kids "hey... it's 'supposedly', not 'supposebly' or something like that.
Unless they changed something, if you bought the DLC, that DLC went through XBL and once you buy something through XBL you can delete it and download it again later. At least, that's the way COD4, WaW, and MW2 worked. Never deleted the MW3 DLC so don't know since MW2, but that's the way it's always been in the past.
If you are in a game with few people in it then of course you are going to have even less people in those lobbies that also have the DLC. At most 20 percent (more like 10 probably) have the DLC.
So if you are in a gmae mode with say 5000 people in it normally then you will probably only have 500 people with the DLC in that gametype.
If for example you are playing in League Play that is a defnitely long wait to get into matches anyway.
The matchmaking even furthers it down even more because it is now only searching for available players on your continent only thus making even less players to be in your games.
Now if you are for example in the US with TDM games then you shouldnt have any problems with EITHER DLC only maps or regular, if you did check all your settings in the game menus.
And chill man. you arent going to get Tech Support here.
You know whats funny ? They stil make single Player only games for 60 bucks and people pay it. But add some online play and people freak out over every little thing.
I've experienced the same thing but it seems to be getting me better connections when I do get a game so I can't complain. I figured it was because people with DLC are more likely to have made attempts to improve their connections but from what you say it might just be dumb luck.
