I second this post. Never understood the reasoning behind forcing players to play moshpit for the new DLC. Kinda redundant don't you think? Hey heres the new maps, play them on these specifics modes which you clearly avoid for certain reasons :/
Agreed... but IW made poor decisions all around with MW3.
I will not renew Elite. Black Ops is only accessible on the pc app not my console plus the way playlists were used for the new maps I didn't hardly touch them at all. I ditched MW3 due to lag so I feel a little ripped off and dissapointed with the whole thing. I am sticking with map packs from now on and only Treyarch CoD titles. IW can suck it.
IW did many things wrong and not renewing Eliet is a valid thing...
... but I'm waiting to hear what Elite 2.0 offers and if it comes with a hardened edition.
They should continue to charge for DLC seperately (like in Black Ops and before) and provide the Elite services for free. Every other major company does it [for free], so why shouldn't Treyarch?
That's an awfully broad statement... care to give an example?
They can release the dlc to everyone at the same time and should. Elite subsribers still get the map packs cheaper than non premium. If they released them at the same time, and premium members still got them a little cheaper then everyone who would get the map packs anyway would be more inclined to just sign up for elite.
This would fix all the fragmented playlist issues.
Great examples man. Great idea as well! I personally will be buying BO2 Elite because of zombie maps HOWEVER, You bring up really good points. Clans should be more meaningful, DLC should have more than just maps, and modes should not restrict maps. Yeah sure you can make new modes, but don't restrict those maps to JUST those modes. (Other than 2vs2 and 1vs1 maps).
they need to slow down the dlc for better, more reliable and valuable packs.
they should have every 2 or 3 months, have a map pack including about 4 multiplayer maps and 2 zombie maps. and every 2-3 weeks have a cheap dlc including small stuff like new weapons, modes, killstreaks etc.
bethesda studios too went through a time where they made a crappy game with small constant dlc, fallout: new vegas which had hardly sold dlcs to their expectations. but then, they made an excellent game with slow, powerful dlc, skyrim (although the dlc's havent come out yet) bigger, slower paced dlc sells better.
have we paid to beta test ill just throw that out there . to op fully agree i feel elite has just been a waste of cash early maps are good but the way we have had to play them is painful . number 3 on your list is what i was wanting something extra the camo and title got rolled out to everyone after the offer should have ended due to the problems .
