How Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer is Almost Ruined by DLC

Brandon: Mass Effect 3 multiplayer is an exciting co-op game mode, but a year after its release we found how difficult the process of playing with friends can be. (BioWare, EA, Mass Effect 3, Xbox 360)

You know they did come out with a "Full Combo" type pack which has all the MP DLC in one package. Instead of downloading four others it would had been easier to just download that. If you had a party all set up and didnt need to PUG you could had just checked to see you all had the same DLC and not bother getting the others.

Considering the DLC adds like dozens of new characters of all races and playstyles, lots of maps and even new map/mission modes all for the very low price of free I think it's kinda silly to make a statement suggesting the mp is 'almost ruined' by said dlc.

Where is the "Full Combo" pack? I did not see it on Xbox LIVE. If you have a link, I'd be happy to update the article.

I checked. Xbox apparently doesn't have it. My mistake. I just assumed it would - can't imagine why it doesn't. I play the Playstation 3 version which does have a full combo-ish pack in the form of "Mass Effect™ 3 Multiplayer Collection" which is a single DLC that contains all the multiplayer expansions.

Like I said, I assumed this DLC would be universal. Regardless of this I still stand my by earlier statement in regards to all this being silly.

but its all free... ?? So your upset because you had to download the "free" mp packs before you were able play. This is the case with most MP games. Let's talk about owning all map packs for halo 4 and not have payed on a new map in 2 months because of people not having the DLC and lack of "DLC only" playlist. I'm more angry on the latter than the former.

After reading the comments here, I'm concerned the article wasn't clear to the problem discussed. It wasn't about that the DLC was free or not. The point was the practice of requiring everyone to sync "optional" content before being able to play is poor practice. That's all. I was taken by surprise at the necessity of needing to sync.
