Everyone who got Crimson Pack FREE will have it locked on the 18th

That sucks because now not as many will have the maps, which means you will get to play on them less (once the playlist is gone).

Well, matchmaking tries to pair you with people who have it, so... That'll help... ^-^

How f****** dare they lock away content that I've already downloaded. They messed up and should just own up to it. Guess I'll have to find an easy way to get 800 points.


Nope. According to them, they gave you a trial. Don't complain about getting something for free then having it taken away. It was a timed gift, that's all. Hush.


No, the only 'trials' I've ever seen on the Marketplace are for Arcade games, and things listed explicitly as trials.

MS is desperately backpedaling and covering their ass. And doing pretty poorly at it.

I really doubt this is true. Most of the people on the "Support" team don't even know what the **** they are talking about. And Microsoft has no way of regulating this.

Microsoft is treating it as a "Free Trial" since they messed up. Once the 18th hits, it will be locked until you pay for it. (Map pass and LE owners are unaffected)

Hopefully that clears things up.

So this thread cleared up... what exactly? Nothing?

Anybody who knows how to read knows that its only available for free download til the 18th, which is why that was never in question. The thing people don't know is what happens after the 18th.

People are curious if they meant that you won't be able to download the map pack for free anymore, or if they're talking the map pack away from people who downloaded it for free entirely.
I.E. By "For a limited time" do they mean that it's free and complimentary to download for a limited time, or that its free and complimentary to play for a limited time?

The post here (http://i.imgur.com/43ZLh.png) reads as though it's free for everyone DURING A PERIOD OF TIME. Afterwards, only LE and WGMP members will have access to it. Everyone else will need to purchase it to keep it. Not sure what happens to the people who bought it for 800 points, but that seems like the minority currently...

I wonder how they will handle this if they tried to remove your access to it. The Crimson Pack is listed in my download history and my purchase history. It is not listed in my billing history as it was free, just like any other free DLC is not listed.

They'll prolley run a check in everyone's billing history, searching for LE codes, WGMP, or the Crimson Transaction. If you don't have one of those 3, you can't access the maps. >~<

Do you understand how ridiculous that sounds? That would take so much time. I mean, if the maps were intentionally uploaded with a time lock on it, I would totally believe this. But otherwise, no.
