DLC Map Priority

[ Edited ]
135 replies 4445 views Edited Nov 28, 2012

We'll be updating the priority of the maps for the DLC toggle from time to time when we push live updates or Labs. For the week of Nov 27th 2012 Flashback Map Pack 2 was given priority. Here's a breakdown of what that means:

 

I have "___" InstalledDLC On DLC Off
No DLCDefaultDefault
FBMP 1 OnlyDefaultDefault
FBMP 2 OnlyDLCDefault
UC3DDMP OnlyDefaultDefault
FBMP1 & 2DLCDefault
FBMP 1 & 2 & DDMPDLCDefault
FBMP 1 & DDMPDefaultDefault
FBMP 2 & DDMPDLCDefault

 

Use this chart to determine what DLC maps you'll need to download to get the DLC toggle working effectively for you. We do this because it helps keep the DLC player pool large and gives you the opportunity to pay for the DLC you want to play. 

 

Here are the other possible situations:

 

Drake's Deception Map Pack given priority:

 

 

I have "___" InstalledDLC On DLC Off
No DLCDefaultDefault
FBMP 1 OnlyDefaultDefault
FBMP 2 OnlyDefaultDefault
UC3DDMP OnlyDLCDefault
FBMP1 & 2DefaultDefault
FBMP 1 & 2 & DDMPDLCDefault
FBMP 1 & DDMPDLCDefault
FBMP 2 & DDMPDLCDefault

 

Flashback Map Pack 1 given priority:

 

I have "___" InstalledDLC On DLC Off
No DLCDefaultDefault
FBMP 1 OnlyDLCDefault
FBMP 2 OnlyDefaultDefault
UC3DDMP OnlyDefaultDefault
FBMP1 & 2DLCDefault
FBMP 1 & 2 & DDMPDLCDefault
FBMP 1 & DDMPDLCDefault
FBMP 2 & DDMPDefaultDefault

This system forces players to buy all of the mappacks. Shady stuff.

As long as I can actually PLAY DLC maps, every time I turn the switch on I get London Underground and Airstrip. I have all the map packs.
I do gameplay/commentary, help me out and subscribe! Click my siggy to get to my channel!

Eric, is there any chance you guys can change it so that DLC ON is DLC Only?

I would like to play only DLC when input the toggle on :smileyhappy:

I understand the technical reasons for the way this is essentially DLC or not DLC, but I agree with wais. In order to always have your DLC available you have to have it all, which is a gouge.

5.) The hats aren't the surprise.
4.) Mods knows what they're doing.
3.) It doesn't fit the world paradigm.
2.) I'm not in it for the money.
1.) The player pool will be consolidated.

More money for ND, what they didn't know yet is that Wetsuit Elena would make them even richer. :smileywink:

It is a benefit for ND, yes. I'm pretty sure this is the best way to find DLC matches all around though, if the system wasn't like this then we would find DLC games MUCH less often.

 

Anyways, much appreciated, I love when you guys switch the weights, I get a nice dose of each DLC per week.

We'd run into player pool issues and longer waits for matches with that.
