Is it, one guy doesn’t have any dlc so he ruins the party for the other 7 people and we are stuck choosing between the stock maps? I mean this is an issue with online gaming in general but I really just want to play some slayer on some frickin skyline, but I never get to see that map as a choice.
If one player in the lobby doesn’t have the Pack for whatever map your looking for, it wont show up. But I’m not sure if it tries to pair you with people who have the Map Packs.
If more people were interested in the game this wouldn’t be much of a problem. I see it that keeping a population is more important than trying to get people to buy the packs, because if no one plays then who’s going to buy the maps?
It would be nice a filter option!!! Then it could search only the players that have the desiered map
Yeah, it is a bit ridiculous to shell out the money for the packs, and then actually only get to play them like 5% of the time.
In my opinion of this, they should alter the search system to where players who have the map packs have a higher chance to get other player with them.
Of course, there’s 3 map packs, so splitting each one up to where it’s 33% chance for each one to appear. Of course, with not many with the map packs, it’s around 10-16%-ish.
Halo 4 Matchmaking prioritizes matching DLC users together. Once you are matched, you are guaranteed to have a DLC map in voting options. After a certain period of time, the Matchmaking will search outside of DLC owners.

In other words, if you want to play DLC for sure, join a team of all DLC owners. Matchmaking will find it easier to match you with another team of DLC owners that are already in a party… Don’t count on being placed on a team with other owners.
I figure eventually they’ll turn the DLC into a 5v5 multi game type playlist with all DLC packs.
