So Microsoft is letting the map pack thing go. No bans, no reversals...

Hmm, am I the only one who gets the feeling they did this on purpose as a way to promote Halo 4?
Maybe they've seen how BlOps' release has been hurting H4 activity and thought this would spark some interest?
I really can't see this being an "accident" because I've never really seen it happen in another game. Although I did hear someone say something in ME3 leaked early...?

Idk, thoughts? Think it was intentional?

I think it was for the mistake of the specialization code mess.

if it was meant to be intentional, MS would have promoted it for their PR. also, if you go directly through marketplace, it's not free. just a stunning display of incompetency if you ask me, but i'm used to it now.

Wait, you're complaining about incompetence when it ends up rewarding you?
You are a sad, sad little man

Cool, so it won't get reversed? I appreciate the free map pack. Pretty glad I did not buy the season pass now. Now I get 10 bucks off instead of 5.

Not really, because they "fixed" it within a few hours.
Small window, and a lot of people were cheated out of it because they were at work, school, etc.

I just downloaded it not 10 minutes ago, so I'm not sure what fix you're talking about.
