And why is that a problem?
You could also make a UK account to download the EU DLC.
Well, if the only language option is one I can't read, it would be a problem?! lol
And, it wasn't just $25 I have wasted... I first bought the fb map pack for $9.99, then when i read about this DLC toggle, I thought it wasn't showing up because I didn't have ALL map packs, so I went and bought the bundle for $29.99... so I have wasted $40... and I'm angry now. I will not be spending another €30 to buy the maps from a german account and then along with that, begin back at level 1... Isn't there something else they can do for me? Considering this knowledge is not provided beforehand?
How exactly did you redeem the online pass without a EU account?
You don't need to start playing with that account, you only have to download the DLC that you want... or buy a NA disc.
I created an account for my husband in German, redeemed the online pass that came with the game from his account... But I still had money on my psn account, so I purchased the map packs from my account, and I always play from my account. I had no idea that the region would play a part in downloading dlc's. The thought didn't cross my mind. That really sucks. Well, either I'll be waiting til I can find a really cheap used disc, or just never play the new maps because I'm not handing out another 30 euros..
1. I have played FBMP#2 maps twice with DLC toggle set to off. I've played both Temple and Plaza.
2. If you have the DD map pack, you will find FBMP#2 maps constantly with the DLC toggle on. You may be new to the game and not know this but most people purchased something called the Fortune Hunters Club which allowed them to download ALL DLC released thus far. Since everybody in a lobby has to have FBMP#2 installed to play them, you will find most of these people in the DLC playlist since they all downloaded both FBMP#2 and DD map pack with the Fortune Hunters Club. The DLC toggle set to ON searches for players who have downloaded the DD map pack..........and they all have FBMP#2 so the maps come up constantly.
anyway back to the point are naughty dog going to respond to this problem? it is ridiculous really that people should pay for extra content and not ever get to use it. they should weight EVERY dlc map equally and create separate pools for each pack, and not weight the latest ones. if they were going to weight the latest ones, they should at least let people know. what if you only bought the older map packs after the release of the newer ones? the system doesnt work
I hope they'll soon acknowledge that there is a problem and find a way to solve it. I've played over 30-40 hours the last 2 weeks and didn't see any Flashback Map, not even once. I have some friends that have the same issue.
I've posted a lot on this forum about it, sent some tweets, sent an e-mail and left a message on Naughty Dog's Facebook. I have no idea what to do now and I still feel deceived because yup, like many others, spent money on DLC that doesn't work.
I also think it's ridiculous that Naughty Dog doesn't give any answer. It's not like there is an in-game problem like an overpowered weapon or some glitches. This is an actual issue that makes DLC, which is paid for, unplayable.
Eric last response on the FBMP isssue was this:
"Posted by: Eric-ND on 04-06-2012
You have to buy the latest DLC for the DLC toggle to pool you properly. We’re going to potentially have times/events/weekends where one DLC or another gets priority but for now it’s tied to the latest DLC. You will still be able to play DLC maps via default matchmaking of course. "
Yeah I dont see it coming anytime soon, sorry to tell you this.
