Team DLC Playlist Available for 2 Weeks Starting Jan 20th



Here's the blog post about it. Sadly this won't do me any good as the only DLC achievements I'm missing are the ones that are glitched for me.

I heard about this a few weeks ago, but seeing these game types, it doesn't do anything for people who want to boost this, which is almost necessary if you want any DLC achievements. The only playlist listed above where you can use your custom loadouts is Slayer, but slayer's max party size is 4. Kinda sucks when you have 8 people trying to boost this. I guess two parties of 4 could try to match up, but that hasn't really worked in the past. Why couldn't they have some of the bigger maps in a DLC Big Team Battle playlist?

Plus, why not a playlist to accommodate all the DLC maps? Sucks when you paid good money to play on these maps but when one person doesn't have the DLC, those maps never come up. What's the point? Yeah, 343, way to support your customers.

This does nothing for me. I'm missing three Castle achievements, and all of them require custom loadouts. Another reason why this game is dead to me.

Thanks for posting.

Yeah it doesn't help everybody but it's at least better than nothing. I'm still checking Waypoint every week to see if they'll mention a patch releasing soon.

Yeah, that's true. But I wouldn't hold your breath for a patch anytime soon.

Back on the topic for this playlist and the max party allowed (the maximum amount of players in a lobby where you are allowed to choose certain playlists)...

Both the normal SWAT and Ricochet playlists allow for party sizes of 8 people. The King of the Hill game type is in both Big Team Battle (16 players) and Rumble Pit (8 players). Regicide is in Rumble Pit and Team Regicide is in Big Team Battle. Oddball is in Rumble Pit. Snipers is in the Team Snipers playlist which allows 8 players.

The only game type in this new Team DLC playlist that normally doesn't allow more than a 4 player max party is Slayer (I'm thinking this will be Team Slayer since this is a Team DLC playlist). But they can only limit the amount of people per playlist, not game type within that playlist. So my thinking is that they will allow 8 players max party for this playlist since all but one game type normally doesn't allow it. That would make it much easier if people choose to boost this, which is really the only way you can guarantee playing any DLC maps (in my experience, playing with randoms has never come up with a DLC map). At least this is what I'm hoping; that Slayer is indeed 8 players since I still need three Castle achievements that require custom loadouts.

Then again, the game types in this DLC playlist may not allow custom loadouts. That would suck big time.

343 really screwed the pooch on this.

Not going to happen but I wish they would just patch these achievements to be unlockable in custom games. If we pay for the DLC we should be able to unlock achievements in any multi-player modes. Makes me wish I sold my season pass because I only have a few of these achievements due to them being so elusive.

I'm sure people who are trying to play seriously get annoyed with boosters and it's annoying trying to boost in matchmaking lol...
