I know that the maps play differently for each game mode but I mean they is still no new maps
Anybody every wonder why they are called "map packs"

" @EpicSteve said:Seriously. Those may not even be maps that we download. I honestly think it's just the 'level boundary' and the 'game logic' that we download with the map attached as a label." What else would you call it? "Terrain re-purposing supplement? "
At least it's a "pack"...
I'm with you, calling them "map packs" implies that you are getting a pack of maps, instead you are treated to different game modes on the same maps. They should just call it "EA wanted to bud in"...like them making me enter a code to play my Tiger Woods online...BUT THE CODE DOESN"T WORK... OH EA, we HATE you
" @iiNF3RNo said:the purpose of those map packs is to discourage people from buying used games. or for your case, borrowed it from a friend coz it's not helping the company make money from used games. less profit means less games for them to make and release." @Onno10: u dont have to pay for the "map packs" in bc2. dnt post when u probably dnt even own the game. "I'd have to buy them because I use my friend's copy but I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything. "
although it's good that you don't feel like you're missing out on anything coz that may mean you're satisfied with the current maps. But those VIP map packs are a lot of variety you can have fun with. Plus, without those VIP map packs, you'll always get kicked out of the match whenever the next map is a VIP map, kind of a hassle. hehe!
I agree with the OP, "map packs" have come to mean a a selection of new maps for online games, it seems like they're just trying to make the game mode things sounds more attractive so that the "project $10" thing works.
But even "new" game modes would be better, what we're getting is different combinations of maps and modes that we've already played.
" The OP must have been in a hurry because, he dnt hve da tym 2 typ all da lettrs. "This. Son of a bitch, man. It takes me like twice as long to read what you're talking about. And then when i do read it, i still don't know what the fuck you're talking about.
Sorry, I thought OP was pretty much universally understood online.

Although I do feel that I should point out that what I used was an acronym (I even capitalised it) and not shortened leet speak - I didn't write 'orgnl pstr'.

You just said yourself what OP means, why do you think he's talking to you?
