Multiplayer lockout and maps removed from rotation?

#1 Posted by Drtyore (0 posts) -
Hey all Can someone tell me why Halo Reach and Halo 4 limit the types of maps that are in circulation for multiplayer? I get so sick of playing sword base / uncaged / other standard ones, but miss some of the other maps that I remember playing and they NEVER show up (can't remember their names because well, they never show up). Also, the other day my buddy wasn't able to play 4on4 battle because he hadn't downloaded the map packs. Are they seriously blocking access to people unless you buy the DLC?
