Hey, guys!
Just grabbed on the last sale 3 collections.
Now, the problem begins when I try to download them from in-game menu.
It gives me an error, still tries to download everything in the background, an when each item gets to 100%, it just gives the message " can't download X pack".
Have anyone encountered this kind of crap?
Tried to delete all save data, redownloading it, redownloading purchased collection passes themselves and clearing cache.... Nothing worked...
Any ideas? Thanks in advance!!!

I am having the exact same issue. I contacted xbox live and all they did was refund the dlc. I am not sure what the problem is but I was looking forward to completing this game!

In what way did you contact them, mate? Thank for your response!
Pity, I wanted to get done with this too....

I contacted them through the chat with a specialist feature on their website. I was excited to finish the game off, who knows what is wrong with their servers.

I contacted xbox live support. Activision support seems rather worthless although I believe the problem is on their end. They offered no help to me.

Rampageric77, so what you're basically saying is just to go and get the refund - meaning no way to finish this game for us.
ChadMarc - it's not "any game", the problem with MW3 is that you have to download extra content from in-game menu, and that seems to be the problem for downloading...

after you initialize the download in-game, it appears on your download history. you can then download it without the game being on. im not saying it will fix the problem, but it costs nothing to try. (my season pass dlc's are all on my download history even tho downloaded in-game)

Newest update as of today : Activision support chat, the answer :

"I see. It seems that you may no longer be able to get the ELITE drops Steve since this was a limited offer before and as of this moment, ELITE premium is no longer available, though players that are still members for the premium will still be able to download the contents."

As the support chat continued, I was told that I had to have Elite before it was removed on February 28 and as long as it was installed, the downloads for the maps would work. As for a refund, they told me I had to contact the 1st party provider (Xbox/ Microsoft). Just got my refund. No completion for me....

So if you were not an Elite member before the 28th there's no possible way to complete this game???

I purchased the three DLCs when they were on sale and started the download. I just now checked and only the first one fully downloaded and now the rest will get to 100% and then say can't download. So does that mean I'm just screwed???

Wrong.

TBS Nikolai said:So if you were not an Elite member before the 28th there's no possible way to complete this game??? Precisely. And not only that but Activision is also on the way to the bank to claim your money, singing the Trololo song, as we speak.

Maybe they could be bothered to fix it (can't imagine it being too demanding) but then again this is Activision we're speaking of.

It's funny how I wasn't really expecting to find out that a DLC that was just on sale would be discontinued within a week (with no mention of it in the description or whatever) but for some cosmic reason I am not all that surprised.

In the end this is just a big cup of "Fuck you with le diarrhea on the side" served right in every paying customer's face.

Oh, forgot to ask something.

tornprince2012 and rampageric77, since you received the reimbursements for this colossal failure Activision refers to as "content" (if you can call watching your download bar that), do the Collections still appear on your Download History or do they get removed? Rather, what I really want to know is if you can still download them for FREE (in case planets are aligned and Activision actually fixes the issue). As you can probably guess, after being treated like trash I'm not above taking advantage of this.

Ok so originally I downloaded the first collection but 2&3 did not so those I don't have access to. I spoke with a friend who has the maps downloaded and I tried a few things.

1. I downloaded his profile on to my xbox, I then redownloaded the maps under his profile hoping that if they were on my hard drive I could then play them with my profile. That didn't work. They were still locked on my profile.

2. What I did find out though is that with his profile signed in, and my profile signed in to player two, I could play the DLC on split screen. I didn't play a full map and get an achievement to see if it'd unlock but I assume they will since I paid for the DLC and it is downloaded, just the maps aren't.

Once I unlock an achievement, or meet the requirements and not unlock one, I will post.

I know this is not really a solution for most, but if you have a friend that has the maps then this could work for you.

Wow, guys.... While I was sleeping, you had all the fun....
Well, Funky, I still have no idea, just talked yesterday to xbox support ( took more than an hour*) and the guy without any hesitation offered me a refund - something tells me that MS are aware of this issue, and very well.
He said that all the licenses will roll back in the next 24 hours, so I have no idea, actually. Will update you guys in a day or so.
Now, if fucking Activision will fix ( Infinity Ward***) this and put it back on sale - I'll probably grab it again. Anyway, for now, we're fucked.

I'm having the exact same issue - will contact Activision shortly to see if they're working on a fix, but I guess for now we're stuck :(

Remember, all digital is the future!! Nothing this could ever happen with your full games ;)

Seriously...what a screwed up situation. How is it they have the DLC tied into elite accounts only? Sucks, but I'm glad MS is actually acknowledging it.

Microsoft will only get you your money back, not your completion, and from what I can see, that's one of things that we're here for...
Anyone who has an update from Activision is welcomed to let us know what is going on on their side...

Exact same problem here guys. I've been tweeting with Xbox support. They referred me to Activision who said the problem wasn't on their end and referred me back to Xbox. I've contacted Game Informer and they said they would investigate:

I also tweeted to Infinity Ward and got no response

Please retweet both of these to show that this is a major, widespread issue!
