Well, after saying I wouldn't do it, I bit the bullet and bought all available DLC packs...mostly because I wanted more maps for Special Ops.

Sure enough...now that I have all of them, more matches are available in all playlists (though still nowhere NEAR as many if you disable DLC. I generally see "10 matches available" for Domination, for example...so I'm still feeling a bit ripped off).

So I guess I have my answer....Indeed we are only matched up with those players that have the same DLC packs installed as us, and apparently the DLC 1 and 4 combo is an un-popular one at that.

Which begs the question - why on EARTH did they do it like this? Seems to me it made way more sense from a playability standpoint to keep it the way it was (assuming keeping it that way was still possible). So maybe you haven't bought all the DLC and get booted from a lobby because you don't have the next map up. Big deal. You move on and search for a new match. If anything, that made it even MORE tempting to buy the new maps...I know it was for me back in the COD4/MW1 days haha!

Piazza is okay. Liberation is so-so; a tradiotnal sniper's paradise.

Overwatch is okay. It reminds me of Highrise from MW2.

Black Box is good map that is well balanced. Snipers and Run 'N Gunners can do well in this map.

Sanctuary is a good map like Black Box, but because of its elevation killstreak rewards like Reapers and AC-130's can't be used proplerly; trajectories are too tight.

Foundation is a map I personally dislike.

Oasis is a beautifully rendered map. Reminds me of the Middle Eastern Maps from MW1 and 2, just not as war torn.

Agreed. The old way was better.

Thanks for the info guys, could have saved everyone a lot of time if Activision or whoever just said that months ago. The small 2week's I had playing dlc 4 maps were a fluke or just to encourage me to buy 2 and 3 before it stopped finding games?  . 2 map purchases wasted, shame as parish was an amazing map with an mp7 and claymores.

Same as me mate, I think the words "ripped off" come to mind

Done everything but I am coming to the conclusion that I have been a victim of Criminal Fraud. The problem was well known about by the company and the product still sold, basicly corporate theft.

So I then tried to call activision.......... Surprise, surprise, cant find a phone number for customer services.

sorry to hear you guys are going through the same thing but I guess we should not be to shocked about it between the hackers that go unchecked on thier servers and the fact that nothing is ever their fault this type of problem was expected. done with cod games for good this time last time they get my cash and then say not our responsibilty.....
