Microsoft seems to have an itchy trigger finger on the Ban Hammer these days. It's a good thing I have failed to download those so far.

I downloaded them two days ago and have been playing them since.. No ban on my account.

If anyone wants to get together and play sometime, my GT is Slain Valhallan. :)

I dont believe this at all. I downloaded this on my account & my sons account over a week ago. Granted we have all the Legendary Editions ever & now the Limited Edition.

I've been playing Crimson ever since.

No problems here either.

No problems here either. Thanks MS for the free maps! =)

They just can't access the map packs. They said when you download them for free that you would only be able to access it until I think the 18th at 9 AM. So, it shouldn't really be a surprise.

it seems unfair to ban someones account for down loading a map pack. it Msoft fault that they were able to download it in the first place for free..

aviator1892165d ago (Edited 2165d ago )

I'm pretty sure it's just a glitch affecting isolated accounts as I can still play my account after downloading the map pack.

Even 343i said on their bulletin that no ban of any sort will be handed out to players who download the dlc for free.

rbluetank2165d ago

i hope this is the case. i would be pissed if i got baned.

Crazyglues2165d ago (Edited 2165d ago )

yeah I don't think they are banning anyone, because that would be pretty stupid to ban people because of a mistake you made...

I have not downloaded the map pack, but I am enjoying my halo...

really like what 343i did with the game, it's pretty impressive and that's coming from a PS3 guy..

I'm really enjoying the game... To the guys who have the Map Pack is it worth getting? Would you have bought it if you didn't get it for free???


ALLWRONG2165d ago

@Crazyglues yeah it's worth it, the maps are solid and well designed.

Apparently all the people who exploited the glitch to download the map pack for free will not be able to use it after the 18th of December. They referred to it as a "trial" rather than a glitch.

They are ban from accessing the Map Packs, not the game.
They are treating them like a demo to the map pack.
They are not doing a total ban hammer, say if you stole something thru marketplace theft.
