343 Industries have confirmed they'll reset the ranks in Halo Master Chief Collection once all the online issues are sorted out.
How this did happen? Oh, well...
A large influx of players.
you'd expect them to be ready for a Halo launch

Oh no... but now I can play the game. Take my eyes but don't take my shirt... I mean my rank 0 away.
"this issue is overblown by sites to get hits!" "DC is worst!" "I played online just fine and some of my friends too are fine" BAAM!...ranks reset! http://i1.kym-cdn.com/photo...
@Xbox I agree with you there. I'd expect them to be ready at this point as well. I personally am able to get into these games just fine however.
You really think that's the problem? The release of the Xbox's biggest franchise, and they didn't expect a large influx of players?
Issue is over blown... I wasn't able to play.
Just a minor annoyance.
Rocky launchs are not that rare, unfortunarely, but resetting ranks still seems very unfair. Maybe they could have gone with individual bans.
I don't think bans are really needed, no one is doing anything wrong. One of the issues is causing wins to be award to people playing against no one, unbalanced teams (3 vs. 1), and parties split to other teams. I think a clean slate is an ok idea with those circumstances.
I'm not gonna freak out like a lot of other idiots around, but it's not minor. I have 4 friends with this game and not one of us have gotten a single match. Ever. It might "work fine" for a very small percentage of people, but most are having issues.
Wow, I know I would be pissed if it happened to me!
Oh please, no one has a high enough rank to be upset. Chill...
I'm pretty sure people will be upset.
Theres only one playlist that has rankings, so it wont be the end of the world.
Oh no, you mean until then it's all for funzies? That doesn't sound awful at all.
This is a small price to pay if it means they fix the issues some people have been having. I haven't had any issues but it is obvious that a lot of people have.
Yeah, though obviously it would have been best if they didn't have those issues in the first place.
Yeah youre right. I am still haveing a crap ton of fun with this collection whether I am playing online or not. But yes it would be better for it to work to begin with.
Making a mountain out of a mole hill. BEWARE lol.
I don't think it's a mole hill, and when we count in the fail launch.
I respect your opinion but disagree. Not everyone had issuses with the launch. And how much can it affect their level?
Only one playlist has a ranking. It's not a big deal...at all. And for chrost sake, how is it a fail? Because it takes you 2 extra minutes to get into a game?
Noooooo! I want to keep my current rank! I'm LvL 1
Congratulations! XD OT - As long as they don't go over two weeks they should be fine, its not like nostalgia will fade away that fast.
Not really bothered by this since it's not like I can find a match anyway
What a mess....
its cool either way, going through the campaigns one by one again, nostalgia up the glory hole, love it, and you can find a match but it takes a long time lol i would have bought this collection if it was 100
Can they get anything right? Jeezus.
Tired of seeing articles about server issues or launch issues of new software. I don't know about the rest of you but I spend a lot of money on gaming and I don't think it's too much to ask for these features to work and this goes for both MS and Sony! My idea for a solution would be if the dedicated servers fail to work or are overloaded, matches could be hosted on a P2P connection. I know P2P generally stinks but it can still provide some kind of MP experience other than none. Just my 2 cents....
I can confirm the single player side of things works perfectly :)
The collection would pay off just for the campaigns alone. :D
Really incredible game i have to admit.
These arent dedi servers they? Just played a match for the first time, well half a match in midship. Host migration appeared then the room closed after saying host had quit. Looking at you THL BLACKDEATH you knob jockey
no they are not. yet with Halo 2 I never ran into the same hit detection issue that I do with other titles. Halo 2 ran better on my 3 mbs connection than COD with my 100 mbs connection. connection speeds are going up and so are graphics. people don't like this but graphics are killing on line play.
This gen have started off a disaster for a lot of big titles.
Seems to becoming a trend these days...
Oh no! Not my meaningless multiplayer ranks that count for literally nothing! In all seriousness, this current situation is VERY annoying, but unlike other games with broken online components, there's 25-32 hours of amazing campaign solo/co-op content to play first, not including messing about for secrets/replay value. I can wait... a bit... before getting angry.
Eh, I'm only rank 3 so it's not that big of a deal. Can anyone tell me how you rank up? Is it just based on wins? I never did play the original Halo 2
