Microsoft "working around the clock" to fix troubled matchmaking
Mod note: this isn't about DriveClub or Sony. Keep it on topic, please.
This is running into its third day, how can they release one of the biggest games this year with server problems
It was only released yesterday. Besides the little hiccups, we can still play online. I'm having a blast playing Halo 1 multiplayer online. I'm not complaining one bit.
Working fine here. Im in texas.
Does it track stats like K/D and accuracy across all games?
Third day sure dude. Been playing online.. Sometimes takes a bit longer to get in but besides that its a blast.
Right, my daughter & I are having a blast playing Halo 2 in Campaign Co-op. This package is magnificent!
second day dude, unless you are from australia lol
Third day? The game released yesterday
Two day fix is pretty damn fast
its been running a lot better for me as of last night, and should be even better once the new patch rolls out this morning. its been pretty disappointing but at least they're moving fairly quick.
Worked really well for me this morning 5am EST
My NAT Keeps going from Moderate to Strict by itself. I have yet to join a match yet which is disappointing. I've let search run for 20 min and get nothing. I'm patient though so I hope they can fix the issues. I wish they showed statistics for the number of players.
i havent been able to play one match, yet a ghost did, it says i played one anniversary match and betrayed someone and lost it, ???? weird, i havent even been able to play
lol that happend to me like wtf how did this happen?
If u let it sit...u may have walked away and it put u in one...seen it happen...matches are pretty fast
I haven't been able to get into a multiplayer match yet. I've only tried twice, and only waited about 3 minutes each time, but had 0 people join the lobby.
Yeah best thing to do is go n make a coffee or go for a dump and by that time. The would of started.
This game has annoyed me, it took 3.5hrs to install multiplayer components and I still could not play as matchmaking was broken! Have tried again today and I still cannot get into a game.
Lol I hate when ppl do that because they arent around when the game starts... The match I was in took 30s to fill the roster...
Have finally got in a lobby after 3 hrs of waiting!
The reason this is a issue to some is because the fanbase as well as Microsoft have hyped up the capabilities of the Azure cloud service that Microsoft employs. To them something like this was literally was statistically unlikely or impossible to happen, even though anyone with half a brain would know, nothing built by man is without flaws.
I love halo Idk Wtf is happing at Microsoft cloud, typhoon was probably messin up the server lol.
This probably has nothing to do with the capacity of the servers, and more to do with inadequate server side software. I don't think MICROSOFT ever claimed that the existence of their server farms will eliminate the possibility of human error. I think the 'anti-hype' you see with every hiccup "OMG DA CLOUD" or "what about those 300,000 servers" has been louder than anything from MS or MS fans. Really MS talked about the benefits of dedicated servers for hosting games and providing additional processing power. That's The notion that xbl overall SHOULD be more reliable thanks to the cloud is something that anti-MS folks keep speaking of, even though it's never been a claim.
Like what he did to the update, this site sure do need it maybe ends or lower flame bates.
I just hope its fixed by this weekend for now, I will be grinding through the campaigns on Legendary after work.
This is a nightmare 4 halo fan,s guess ill wait till next year 4 a xb1 slim and halo 5 to get there act together tuff break microsoft
Yea because if everything was running smoothly youd have it by now right... and its going to take a year to fix this issue right.... Just go back to sleep.
How is it a nightmare? Because it takes a couple extra minutes to find a MP game? Wow.
Me and many other have not found a game since launch.
I don't know how that's possible. I've found many matches and have been playing online with a ton of people. Matchmaking is not working properly, but it's not "a nightmare."
It is really bad, it takes ages to join a game and nearly always splits my party up, I played a game 6 v 2 earlier and one member of my party was on the 6 team...how the hell does that work? Cant wait until it works properly, this is a real let down. Can nobody do launches right anymore?
Haven't had the chance to play MCC but my friends say it just takes a very long time to get in game. Hopefully it is resolved soon.
That's good news get it fixed!
I know one thing for certain, I'm nowhere near as good as I used to be on halo 2 mp lol! I think I was a level 41 by the time I gave up back in the mid noughties. Played a few games yesterday and today and my reflexes have definitely gone down the pan! It's a young persons game online shooters methinks.
Dont know if anybody saw this, but they also said their will be more updates to follow shortly, on the halo forums. https://www.halowaypoint.co...
