Forced to download free junk so I can play the maps I payed for?

WTF is this about. I really don't give a frog's fat a s s about Terminal, it should have stayed in MW2 where it belongs. But because now they put this peice of junk in here I HAVE to download it so I can play the maps I payed for. WTF is up with that I don't want it. I don't want it cluttering up my HDD, just piss of with it. Keep your free crap off to the side, why does it have to disrupt what I payed for?

If Terminal shows up, leave the lobby and join a different one. Keep doing that, it's what I do.

You don't have to, just a suggestion.

Thats the thing, is yes I have to. If I want to play the maps that I payed for, I have to download their free junk, there seems to be no way around it.

Yeah I know. Why do they even do this? It should be optional.

simple answer as it was causing a major matchmaking issue.

by having the terminal dl as optional they created another fragmentation of those with it and those without on top of the usual fragmentation caused by usual dlc drops

easiest way to fix it was to make the terminal dl mandatory.

I don't see why it would cause an issue with matchmaking. Every other COD that had DLC never had this issue, why now? If I only bought one map pack in one of the older games it made no issue with matchmaking.

So why now the big problem that if I don't have the same maps?

because this is the first cod with elite drops,

every time something is released the player pool is fractured into those with and those without. you never really noticed it before in previous games as there was a 3month gap between dlcs and it balanced out.

adding a free dl like terminal added another level of fracturing that was the straw to the matchmaking camels back .
