I could be mistaken but I believe you need to update to be able to play on any of the maps. Even the main game ones. I know if you want to play with someone who has it you have to download it to play with them but I am not sure if it mandatory to play with people who don't have it.

You need both updates to play online at all im pretty sure. Definitely the Multiplayer update (2.1gb) to play b2k maps since they are in that update.

The day the updates were released, I downloaded the mandatory one but did not immediately download the Rent-A-Server one, and I was still able to play the game.

The problem I think you'd have at this point is that they've rented out 99% of their servers. You would not be able to play on those rented servers, so effectively you wouldn't be able to play at all.
