This is a classic example of why not to fix something that wasn't broken. You nailed it perfectly in RB1&2, and that's what won me over to the series. People had been happily enjoying the system for three years. That aspect of the game was perfect. You guys had the perfect balance of penalty/reward and you changed it. Why? That part was the very core of the game and it worked. No one was asking for that change. It's a core engine change, not just a visual tweak or something. I've seen a lot of feedback from people saying how frustrating it is not to be able to pass a song they could have 2 days ago. It is a problem.I want to love RB3, but I absolutely don't like this change. It makes it less fun and is a game-breaker for me. This is not a knee-jerk "let's boycott" reaction either. I have 500 or so DLC songs and have enough MS points cards stockpiled from sales to last me for a loong time. I had no intention of stopping purchasing DLC. However, now that DLC is RB3 only, I'm calling it quits. I don't like the new engine. It feels like GH now, which was why I dropped that series. I'm sticking with my DLC in RB2. I have enough to keep me busy for years.My full thoughts are in the thread specifically discussing this.http://www.rockband.com/forums/showthread.php?203699-RB3-Quicker-to-fail-out&p=4134429&viewfull=1

It makes those songs unplayable or extremely awkward. The only way to play a bunch of my RBN tracks the way they were meant to be played is to load up Rock Band 2. This is not progress. Especially annoying is when playing pro drums, one of those RBN tracks come up. At the very least, the game should automatically downgrade the chart to non-pro mode for that song.
Grybo101;4134765 said:It doesn't have to be disabled. Harmonix just lied to everyone when they said that they were adding pro drum tracks since the DLC and RBN songs came out. All they did was go back, and replace all the notes with cymbals. They have to ACTUALLY go back and fix the songs properly.

Orgophlax;4135235 said:RBN songs are incorrect because HMX never released the info for how to differentiate between toms and cymbals to the RBN creators until recently. Newer RBN should be OK, but that's if (and a major if) the creator decides to incorporate it.All officially HMX released DLC has correct tom/cymbal charting already since release day RB1.

MidianGTX;4135537 said:Please fix the solo section markings! This is the one problem I'm having with an otherwise amazing game, and it only really affects those of us that use the solo buttons to tap solos without strumming.The solo sections in RB1 & 2 were really obvious with the change in fretboard colour, but now they're only marked by blue lines along the side, and a thin blue line across the board. Because the blue lines along the side fade in and out, they're not reliable markers, and the horizontal line is transparent and hard to see. Often when a solo ends I keep tapping without strumming because the side lines fade out past the non-solo notes and I don't see the horizontal line at all. Most of the time I also don't see the solo coming until a few notes in.I love the look of the new fretboard but a transparent blue line across a blue background just isn't noticeable enough.
