I am only commenting on "DLC enabled" topic. I believe when we updated, that feature got automatically turned on. So by hitting select, you are actually turning off something that is already on. Also remember, if you are in a party with someone who doesn't have the maps, you will never get the map as a choice. Currently I do find it easier to just go to the Elite Playlist.

On Dom you are right that it doesnt always notify you if your flag is being captured, but the flag under attack does flash , and that is how i can tell by keeping an eye on them.
The africa ghillie thing? maybe too hot in Africa to wear a ghillie suit?? i dunno

It's hard to notice something flashing when it's covered by another flag. So like if I'm losing B and A's in the same direction on my screen, A blocks the flashing B and you can't see it. So unless they don't say it, you don't know if it's bein captured.
As for the Ghillie Suit, if it's too hot then the other team shouldn't have one either. Just sayin.
The guy I team up with has the maps, but they never come up at all and we've cycled through the maps several times. I'm not a fan of the Elite HardCore Mosh Pit, mainly cause of the TDM. Not a fan of the 15 second respawn timer, nor S&D, nor the HardCore Head Quarters.

I have no idea why the African Militia don't have a guillie suit, I very much doubt it's anything malicious though.
You can't have an option to host or not because nobody likes being host, so everyone would just turn it off. If all you where left with was people hosting with poor connections (who didn't know any better) the game would suck for everyone. I suffer from having good internet myself so I know your pain but the problems we suffer from as a result of the way the host compensation works can't be solved by disabling hosting, we need to go back to the MW2 model but it won't happen.
I agree with you about the DLC, the way they have done it through Elite has spectacularly failed to grab the players attention. Instead of everyone looking forward to map packs getting released we've been divided (even amongst friends) and drip fed maps. I prefered the anticipation and excitement of a new batch of maps that everybody played together. As a result the Elite playlists where very poorly populated and in normal playlists the new maps frequently get voted out, so we still ain't playing them much.
I woudln't like to see an explosives free playlist as that's bordering on the MLG playlist on Black Ops and I thought that was a stupid idea, playlist popularity backed that up quite well. Explosives in hardcore need an overhaul though and the XM25 proved to me beyond all doubt that IW don't have a clue (or care) about Hardcore. The XM25 in hardcore is the most unbalanced and annoying weapon in any CoD game, by a mile.

It does need an overhaul! The fact they can just do a rapid fire on it with 2 mags of garbage is outragous!
If they're not going to get ride of them in Hardcore they need to put better restrictions on the guns when it comes to undermounted stuff. Like if they're going to have the M203 or undermount Shotgun, they don't get a secondary. Wasn't it like that in MW? Also if they're going to have those, then no red dots, acog scopes, thermals, or even the hybrid sights. With these restrictions players would have to decide if they want to have an undermount or a secondary.
The way I was expecting the Elite to work was that I would get if free when they rolled out with everyone else. That or I wouldn't have to wait a month after Xbox cause those greedy bastards sold out to Microsoft hahaha. I've seen the new park map, which was extremely disappointing. It looked like a map I would find on PlayStation 1. But I would like to play them in Kill Confirmed or Domination, not HardCore Mosh Pit. Not my thing.
