How did people not understand that the playlist wasn't going to last forever?
It was a double points weekend.
If I remember correctly, in Black Ops 1, the nuketown 24/7 playlist came out for every double points weekend. Then when the weekend ended, the playlist went away.
This is the same situation. I am sure the map will be interjected into the regular playlists soon and the next double points weekend the playlist will be trotted out again. --- To understand the future, we must go back in time
