I hope they get things fix soon before the Halo 5 beta hit. The install and matchmaking is just a mess with this game.

yeah took my buddy almost 48 hours to download that giant update this day and age it's a joke you think it's smart to not do 2nd disc and make everyone download that big of patch on day one

At this point I'm not sure why they didn't delay the game. They should have clearly seen these issues with it, but they decided to release it anyway. I understand they wanted to rush it out for the holiday's, but they've given themselves a lot of bad publicity and embarrassment for no good reason.

I feel really bad for anyone with bad internet.  I get about 2mb/s on a good day and it still took the game close to 6 hours to be fully ready.  Luckily I had AC Unity on my PS4 so I didn't waste my day off of work.

 

Also the playlist options suck!  Wish there was a Halo 1 only or 'original xbox' playlist (halo 1/2).  I have absolutely no interest playing halo 3 or 4 multiplayer.

The update makes it harder for people with bad connections to get into matchmaking by virtue of it being so large...  So it's not a bug, it's a feature?

Majority of the sales probably haven't even occurred with it being a holiday release (or the game is sitting in a box waiting to be opened yet). Even with bad publicity they have more in sales then they would make in March. Plus with a 15 gb patch there are plenty of people still waiting to play that are unaware there's an issue... ;)

In reality gamers have themselves to blame. Companies put out games with server issues and the games still sell amazingly well. So what is the penalty for them to push it out to hit a holiday release?

I finally got into a few games and it's ABSOLUTELY AMAZING, but then I was unable to get into another after that. I'm going to trade this back into Best Buy and buy some cheap Xbox currency on Black Friday so I can rebuy digitally (I believe Dollar General has a $15 for $25 sale). Hopefully they'll have it fixed by then.

 

Does anyone know if I'm going to need to do any more downloading if I make the switch from disc to digital? Would suck to have to spend another 6-10 hours downloading it when I believe I already have the files.

Nope.  Buying it through the marketplace just unlocks access to being able to play the game without a disc.

I'm having this infuriating problem where I'll randomly throw a grenade when I'm scoped in and shooting at someone, has this happened to anyone else or is my controller just defective?

I just use the COD style controls with Halo and Destiny. In MCC, I apply those to all games. Feels great.

I switched Destiny to mirror COD controls but couldnt find the right configuration for MCC. Which one do you use?

I will have to check when I got on my Xbox to be 100% sure I give you the correct information. That will probably be a few hours from now, but I will post the settings.

Well dont wait for Wednesday:

 

 

This week’s content update, which was originally scheduled for release this Wednesday, 11/19, will now be releasing later this week to allow for additional fixes, as well as the completion of the testing and certification process.

This content update includes a variety of fixes across the title, including Matchmaking performance issues, general UI and game stability improvements, as well as fixes for game-game specific issues in Halo: CE, Halo 2, and Halo 2: Anniversary, and more. The full patch notes will be posted later this week, in advance of the content update release.

Thank you for your continued patience.

Agreed.

As someone who has great memories playing Halo with friends these issues are inexcusable. It's a testament to the original games that I'm willing to be patient for them to fix it but I can totally understand others who are not.

Is it just me or did they change headshots in Halo: CEA (even from the 2011 release)? I'm having a hell of a time trying to headshot Elites on Legendary.

Already stated this, but MM really isn't that bad.  This is nowhere near Gears 2 levels.

I just got a refund from Microsoft on this game. I do not have the money or time to waste on a broken game. I am a pretty patient and understanding person, but this is ridiculous. Nothing has improved for me since launch day. I have literally prob played 2 or 3 MP games that were not uneven or broken in some way.

This is the first game I have ever even attempted to return...so I'm not "that guy" who goes crazy and tries to return everything he does not like. In addition, I am a huge halo and xbox fan. I have bought both Xboxes day one and all variations of halo on day one. I was super excited for this game, so I am very disappointed to say the least. Maybe one day everything will be fixed and I will be back.

You returned it to the MS store?
