I just came back to Halo 4 after a while off. I've got a little time to kill, and picked up the Champions Bundle because I was all like "Right on, new maps y'all"! So I told my brotha Alexander Hamilton to make it happen because I know how he likes headshots, and Pitfall looked like some sweet nostalgic multiplayer goodness. Hamilton digs Halo 4, and he has hooked me up with some awesome DLC maps in the past... his favorite is Shatter cause it "gives him the space he needs to hunt that little punk Aaron Burr down" (his words not mine).
The only problem is that in the 75 matches or so I have played since getting back on I have never seen Pitfall or Vertigo in match making as even an option to vote for. Understandably I was a little upset... some things were said aloud, and then I put Halo 4 down to go to bboy practice. When I got home Hamilton texted me from 343 Industries' bank account and was all. "Where you at man, these new map are the shizzle my nizzle, why aren't you online helping me mop up these fools?" ARGH!!! Your right Alexander Hamilton... those online fools need to be mopped! They need it! So I got online again to help my main man Hamilton under the condition that even though I know how he likes to hang out with Snoop Dog on the regular he needs to talk on the headset like a normal adult. "Hey Alex you were the first Secretary of Treasury for god's sake... pull it together son, and lets go do this."
So Hamilton and I jumped back online to mop up some fools as we all know he likes to do. We cleaned up SWAT style on Haven, Adrift, Abandon, Solace, and Complex. Had some crazy fun on Exile and Ragnarok. And that when I noticed it.
Not only had I not seen Pitfall or Vertigo up for match making I had not seen a single map from any of the DLC that I purchased come up even once for a vote on any multiplayer game type. At all. A ton of the maps that Alexander Hamilton and I were so ready play were the ones we were completely locked out of!
That's when he called me...
Me: "Yo, Hamilton whats up brotha?"
AH: "It's cold and dark in this bank account. I can't get out to romp freely on the digital fields of battle... It's lands are locked to me."
Me: "I know... Me too. It is a sad day. Buying Halo 4 DLC feels like a giant rip off right now."
AH: "It's no fun here, and I want to make my journey home."
Oh My god! I don't have time to write any more of a crazy stupid post so lets just get down to it.
Set up Lobbies that allow me play on the DLC maps that I paid for or be good enough to return my Hamiltons to me!
