Bought the last map pack:

LOVE Zoo
LOVE Convoy
REALLY LIKE Hotel
HAVEN'T PLAYED Stockpile enough to render verdict.



You are quite right sir.
Love all of them so far.

Still cant get over how quickly the third map pack got announced.

Maybe all the MW3/BF3 announcements got them nervous.

Out of curiosity I checked the prices and $15 per map pack?  I don't have $30 to spend on extending my Black Ops play only slightly.  Too bad, as they sound pretty fun.

Way i see it is I pretty much broke even on LA NOIRE (which I could not get into) and I'm not buying another game until OMG OCTOBER hits, so rebuying the game and two map packs for a total of 55 bones is worth it.

I'd like to add the maps, but I also looked into the DLC for Mass Effect 2, and having enjoyed the game so much I'm considering purchasing the added missions, but that would also amount to about $30.  I guess with my wife out of town it's far easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission.   ninja

It was leaked a bit early so they just decided to announce it. I'm sure they weren't originally planning on it so soon either.

Hooked up with Mikagami and Hark last night.  We did pretty well, but were consistently inconsistent.

Apparently Kato is getting back into the mix as well. Might have to start a new impressions thread slywink.

It's the fickleness of certain people I'm laughing at (as Teggy just commented on), not your state of employment.  frown

Edit to add: Selling for financial reasons is one thing.  Selling because you're frustrated with the game, or forcing yourself to take a break, and then deciding to come back to the game - now that's something else.

A break, by definition, is taking time away from something.

The answer is yes. The pack that came out a couple months ago is outstanding. Also, new ones due out in less than a week!

Guess I'll order my copy today.

I still wanna give Duke a rent.

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one that votes to skip the first map pack maps.
Again, loving the new maps.

I'll probably give Duke a rent as well with Redbox now having games for $2/night. It would probably be worth a laugh. I'll pick up the new map packs when I get my copy in the mail early next week. I just don't see anything FPS coming out worth playing in the next 3 months... ah well. See you all now playing in game soon.

If the first map pack isn't quite the bees knees, perhaps I might pony up for the 2nd map pack if it's worth the price of admission.  $15 is far more reasonable than $30.

I bought Escalation (2nd map pack) and it's very strong, well worth the buy.  I skipped the first one.  I will probably also grab the one that comes out next week.

played 3-4 matches last night and it was quite fun.

Of the new map pack all I got to play was Zoo and Convoy - really really like Zoo. Reminds me of Carnival combined with Trailer-park.

Was positive KD on Nuketown and my favourite Jungle. Grid was also a nice reminder.

Great return tonight. The new maps seem nice, though I mostly got my ass kicked on them. Rolled probably 2 kd last night so im good with that after three months or so off.

 Played with romy Macker and lettuce, good times as always. Hopefully the eventual fps burnout takes a few months more for me with this one.

As you put it, taking time off has made the game fresh again.

No it is one of the Bare Bones modes.  I play Pure TDM quite a bit and Classic TDM which is the same except you only get Spy Plane, Care Package, and Attack Helicopter as your killstreaks.

Yeah, I usually played a couple rounds of those when I would first Prestige. Easier to earn some cash if you don't win anything in the Gun Game loophole.

15 down / 2 up is what my connection runs. I can't get anymore frown

I would just say you're making shit up, but every time at the end of the match all signal connections to go one bar and I stay at four. I'm the only host I've seen do that time after time.

Also, why the hell does the game pick me to host? It's not like it's one map here or there. Almost every match after Hark and Kato left, I hosted.

Still that was a riot last night. We had six GT running for a while and were clearing lobbies consistently. icon_twisted

I keep saying it, but bandwidth isn't really the key to the latency problem.  Once you have x amount of bandwidth the rest is irrelevant.  You probably have high latency or packet loss.  It probably picks you as host because you have good bandwidth.  2 up should be plenty.
