Despite having dlc's on, for the last couple of days have noticed that no dlc maps have been coming up at all! Whether its the flashback maps or the brand new maps.

 

Anyone else getting this?

Yes sir.   Toggle is broken.   I've even asked opponents in the pre-game lobby if they even own any DLC content.  They don't.  DLC maps aren't showing up because we are being matched against people who don't have DLC.  For some reason everybody is in one big player pool right now no matter if their toggle is set to on or off.

 

you can still luck out and find a DLC map every great once in a while if you're lucky enough to find a lobby where everyone owns DLC maps......just like the default player pool.

That's what the smart Internet tech guys would say.

 

Although not entirely.

I can get DLC...I get the flashback map packs more than anyone else I've partied with too. 

 

Some people just don't get DLC and I don't know how. 

 

Funny because I don't even want the DLC.  The matches on DLC are always extremely sucky...

So ND try and make FB2 maps show up more and in the end all DLC show up even less. Just another day in Uncharted 3.

I signed on to my wife's PS3 account and loaded up Uncharted 3 earlier.   Playing solo with DLC on, I had no problem finding DLC maps.  There was a DLC map voting option every game.  Played Plaza, Village, Old Quarter and Temple.

 

Playing with my freinds since update 1.12.059 I've not been able to find one DLC game.  We are searching in the Default player pool even though DLC toggle is set to on.  We keep finding low levels who don't even have DLC.  The last few nights we have resorted to playing custom games all night since we are unable to find any players who even resemble any sort of competition.  We play these customs on DLC maps so I  know they all have them.

 

There are only 2 possible explanations:

 

1. This glitch is exclusive to parties.  I don't know how or why but Naughty Dog needs to fix it ASAP.

 

2. The matchmaking server is not recognizing that some players have DLC when they do.  This allows them to play DLC in custom games but are put in the non-DLC player pool when matchmaking starts.  It only takes for the server to not recognize one person's DLC to put the entire party in the default player pool.    I have already sent several of my friends messages asking them to re-download their DLC maps as a test to see if this is the case.
