I bought Elite for one reason only - discount price on all DLC. I never worried about the stats or anything else that Elite offered.
Now the timing of the DLC is exactly as I expected.
With XBox Elite getting the DLC first, then XBox, then PS3 Elite, then PS3, it's a cluster. The Elite playlist has so few people playing that matches are hard to find. Last night at 10:00 PM Eastern, there were less than 10,000 playing Elite TDM. I just went back to the regular TDM playlist, and it was normal.
I'm still happy with Elite, but this idea just isn't working.
