If they just did a Classic pack with only COD4 maps (and maybe a couple of MW2, I did enjoy Scrapyard and Highrise), that's the one pack I'd gladly buy day one for $15. Any new maps though don't interest me, cause the new maps in this game have been rather meh.

All I want is Vacant from COD4, which is probably my favorite map for any multiplayer game ever. I think they re-released it in one of the MW2 packs, but I had stopped playing seriously by then. I'd be more willing to entertain it this time around, although I'd prefer it not be locked away in a $15 bundle with four other maps I don't care about.
I was surprised that I had a token from my COD4 prestige, I thought I had read somewhere they weren't counting that far back. Given that I'm no longer hardcore enough/have enough of an outside life that another prestige is unlikely, I'm happy with that. What Unlock did everyone go with? I barely use the custom classes I have, so I want to see what the custom call sign stuff looks like before I decide if I go with that or double XP.
Ral Zarek's deck looks like it's pretty good, I need to unlock more stuff on it because the base deck is kinda gimped but it's promising. Ajani's deck is going to make me need to sideboard in more enchantment removal. And Lilliana's deck is just annoying. Personally, the additions to the old decks are the best improvements. Cumber Stone + Mirrorworks on Tezz's deck is nearly broken, especially as Archenemy since you very quickly have a ridiculous amount of mana available. I just enjoy that the final Archenemy battle is three Jaces. Even Stainless can admit that that deck is kinda fucked, especially in multiples. Biggest disappointment? No Karn deck. I want my banned Mox Sapphire and Show and Tell into Darksteel Colossus damnit!
I've come to the conclusion that DotP is designed purely as an introductory tool. It's meant to be Magic boiled down to a pure essence that people can pick up and within 15 minutes understand the basics of Magic. I've watched no less than five of my friends, three of whom haven't played since high school and two who never played, pick up DotP and in less than an hour, they're getting up to speed and diving into the more nuanced parts of the game. Speaking as someone who tried no less than three times to get into the game in my earlier days, with friends trying to teach me but failing miserably, I picked up the original DotP, and within a week, I had gotten the cardboard crack bug and ran down to my local card shop and bought a deck. That's the point of this game - to be a super cheap, super forgiving way for novices to learn the rules of the game, and once they hit the built-in limits of the game, they've been sucked into MTG enough that they will branch into the real game, either in card form or via MTGO. WotC is a very talented pusher of cardboard crack, this is the infamous first hit.
Way up in the tippy-top of NY state in Potsdam, and I am on TWC and experiencing the same issue. Definitely seems like a faulty router on TWC's backbone, think the best way to get it fixed is to mass-call TWC's support and annoy them till they fix it.
I have experienced this issue occasionally, and I also seem to regularly experience an issue where the lower 20% of the video will turn rainbow colors and become all distorted a decent way into a longer (15 minute + usually) video and remain that way for the rest of the clip. Annoying as hell because that's usually where things are placed on screen during the Happy Hour.
This is with Chrome on the Beta channel on Windows. Both my laptop on wireless and my desktop/HTPC on wired exhibit the same issue, and it exists both on my home network and on my campus network. I have always used Progressive mode.
