Have 343 ever given a good reason as to why..

Playing on a DLC map is now so incredibly rare? I know this happened years ago, but I’ve never really bothered reading up on the news or anything. I’d just like to know what they’ve said about it.

Because not everyone has the DLC maps. If you go in a playlist that isn’t DLC based like the Anniversary playlists and out of eight players only one of them didn’t buy the DLC you cannot play it.

It isn’t what I’d call a good reason, but that’s pretty much it.
