"Compensation" for broken MCC announced.

http://teambeyond.net/halo-master-chief-collection-compensation-announced/ I liked ODST a lot. Relic remake is meh to me. I would have much rather a Beaver Creek remake, but at least it's free.

I wonder how glitchy ODST will be when it's released.

Love relic!! Love ODST!! I was hoping though that they fix MCC which would be the most important start to "compensating" halo players. They still can't get the lobbies fixed! Didn't Halo 2 in 2005 have lobbies that worked? Ugh!

This is so cool.  Almost doesn't seem real.

So the only campaign not on X1 will be Reach.  And I'm fine with that.

That's a pretty sweet freebie for all the bullshit. Does it make it okay? Nope. But still a nice thing they are doing.

I'm hoping to have a xbone and Halo mcc after xmas.

So hoping ODST works at least well as Destiny online. Love that game. It's the only one that I got every single achievement. Would love to relive the firefights with friends.

I really don't care about any of that stuff. Real compensation to me would have come in the form of some cash being deposited into my Microsoft account, instead of more stuff to break an already broken game...lol

343 is doing the right thing though by at least doing something to make up for this fiasco.

my problem is the game is still broken, it is more tolerable now than before, but typically when you apologize and offer free goods, you have fixed said problem. So are they done trying to fix MCC?

The things we have problems with

When in a party trying to play Halo 2 Anniversary Championship Series, it will split you over 50% of the time, you still get dropped from games in this playlist as well and there are still uneven teams in this playlist.

Halo 2 Classic and Halo 3 we hardly ever get split up or kicked from games, maybe one out of 15 games. 

we have played this sorry excuse for a game everyday since release, probably because we are gluttens for punishment, I could care less about relic or their crappy one month gold or name plate crap, just fix the game

I'm sure they are gonna keep working on it at least until Halo 5 drops. Hopefully won't take them that long to iron out the rest of the problems.

Relic was a pretty good map. But come on, $15 worth of stuff for a $60 broken game that [b]still doesn't work[/b] almost 7 weeks after launch?

I just tried to play Halo with my friend. Between the broken roster, lobby, party chat, regular voice chat, and assorted other game crashes, after multiple hard resets and game reboots, we played one slayer game that lasted 5 minutes. We spent well over an hour dealing with their screwed up software just to play one damn game.

I don't care about ODST or a new map. I doubt they'll even work.

[b]FIX. YOUR. FUCKING. GAME.[/b] How fucking hard is it to have voice chat work? How fucking hard is it for me to send my friend an invite, have him accept it, and for us to be in the same lobby? This shit worked 12 years ago. How the fuck can they not figure this crap out in 2014?

This console and game have been the worst $400+ I've ever spent. Fuck you, Microsoft. Greedy, incompetent assholes.

Loaded up MCC last night.  Lobby showed no friends although friends list showed a half dozen playing.  Shrugged shoulders and shut down.

Xbox and Playstation were both being DDoS'd last night.  Attempting to download all apps and updates on my new new xbone was a pain.  Even twitch streamers were having a hell of a time trying to play.  Game seems somewhat playable now.

Lol, nearly 10 minutes after I posted, Xbox live began having issues again.  Another service alert that online gaming is limited across most games.  *sigh*  I was really hoping to get a bunch of MCC games in today.  Shadow of Mordor it is.

My roster wouldn't update from last night. This afternoon it kept showing someone who hasn't been online since last night, and no one else.

The weird thing is that the dashboard friend list was accurate, but MCC seems unable to access the same info. This suggests that there's another issue besides the DoS attack.

Xbox live is fubar, that I know for sure.  I have no doubt MCC is still a flaming pile of garbage, only now, the garbage isn't releasing noxious fumes.  Still a long way to go to completely put the fire out.

Also, I'm glad m$ removed the whole 24-hour drm check. I can't imagine how shitty it would be if you purchased a digital game but can't play the single player portion because you haven't been able to sign into Xbox live.
