murph_77, as far as I'm aware they've all gone smoothly to date - off the top of my head I haven't had any issues downloading Elite content on launch day when I’ve been around to do so, and I don't remember writing any news stories similar to this one
The DLC maps are terrible like always! I downloaded them easily without any problems but the spawn system on the news maps are terrible! I kept spawing with the eniems and died every second on the match. There is also a lot of gun lag as well which is extremly frustrating! (It's not my internet)
I like Gulch and Boardwalk (very Carnival/Drive in) not keen on Parish, way too small for my liking. Not had spawn problems but then I play objective based modes so its more unlikely. Another gripe is the general interaction in maps, see that bar? I wanna get behind it. That ledge over there? Yep I should be able to get on it etc etc etc.... all in all though most of the Elite maps are good imo, generally better than most of the original maps.
having not played mw3 for about 3 months I checked this DL out last night and really enjoyed Chaos mode. It kinda reminded me of when I used to find MW fun - fast, relentless action. Hitting a 382 combo on dome in just over 3 mins with a mate was a good laugh.
