Nice! Was it a digital purchase?

Yes, bought a digital copy...had it pre downloaded and ready to go at midnight launch...only to be repeatedly kicked in the junk by it for over a week.

Guess I can't get a refund from a digital code I suppose?

Totally reasonable. Do you plan to pick it up down the road if they fix the issues?

I've never used a digital code for a game...so you mean you bought a card at a retail store that had a code?


I will definitely buy the game again when it works...I love halo. In a different time in my life (when I did not have kids and had money :D ) I would keep the game and just play it when it got fixed. However, with time and money being limited...I want a game that works. So I'm going to buy something else atm and I will check back on halo and buy it when the waypoint forums are not flooded with people bitching about the game.

Has this game improved since release or still broken?



#463 RBK

It's playable if you're willing to wait a little bit for matches.

 

Still broken by normal standards for the most part.

Matchmaking is still tough, but it's definitely better than it was around launch.

 

It's not saying much, but I've been finding more games as of recent. It helps when I search alone than with a group of friends. I've been matched up to 14/15 player BTB even though the cap is 12. It's slowly getting better.

Thanks for the replies,

 

 I still have AC:Unity and Halo sealed, after seeing all the comments here and on other sites about both games I held off on playing them until they got better

Looks like update is out. Just signed on Halo and was greeted with a 1473 MB update before entering.

 

Edit: Yes, it's live:

Anyone watch the second episode of Halo Nightfall yet? I watched the first but I might just wait until all of them are released later, so I can watch it all in one go.

I wont be home to try myself until tomorrow, but Im reading that the patch only helped a little bit. Sigh, I cant believe this is happening to Halo. I guess I'll be sticking to COD for my go to MP shooter.

Traded my copy in this morning at Best Buy for $44.80. Don't regret it one bit. Maybe I'll be back, but I'm really in no hurry. What an absolute cluster Fuck this turned out to be. YOU HAD ONE JOB, MS/343....

Got the update. 1 match timed out in searching, another matched finished incomplete. And they are still using the stripped down matches (No Halo 4, etc) Sigh.

It works and it doesn't. I can easily re-join the party if we get separated but being separated from the party shouldn't happen after leaving a match and it still was doing that 50% of the time. When playing with a party It's HARDER to find matches, when playing alone this patch has done wonders for the most part.

 

Also my Halo 2 achievements were still borked for the campaign. Luckily I'm playing co-op with a friend online to re-beat Halo 2 anyways.

 

Everyone should be entitled to some compensation. I'm sure this will be fixed a lot qucker then BF4 was, but there's no excuse for this shit to still be broken.

Seems like this patch helped some and not others. With ms being kind of company they are this game would have been the last one I would think would have major server issues after two weeks.
