12/15 update

https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/community/blog-posts/12-15-14-halo-th...

Sounds like this will be (hopefully) resolving some of the lingering party and roster issues that make this such a pain in the ass to play. Fingers crossed!

Well, the roster is more reliable now, although it still shows a " 1/16 " next to everyone's name, regardless of how many players they have in their lobby.

Everything else seems exactly the same. It's still taking 30+ minutes between games to try to rejoin people's lobby and deal with other lobby issues that I don't feel like enumerating. We also got split onto separate teams several times. Yay!

And still no dedicated servers, it seems. Maybe one of these months they'll figure that part out. April? June? September? Who knows?

As long as they haven't effed up Customs .... The rest I don't care about anymore.

I don't even care to finish H2A campaign and that was always a favorite part of Halo for me. To be fair, it's not just this MCC debacle. I've got a shit ton of issues/overhead right now.

why aren't you playing the H2A campaign?  I played through all 45 missions in the whole H1-4 series just fine.

I know in my case, its this other time-sucking XBox game that begins with a D :-) -- in addition to eating, doing necessary chores, working for a living, etc. My intent is to do MCC H1-4 on Heroic, but so far I'm still at H1 Flawless Cowboy, inching along at about 1 checkpoint per week. Pre-patch, my campaign progress got erased, which was a tad discouraging, but that problem appears to have been fixed (fingers crossed). Regardless, am still looking forward to Multiplayer with the Over-50's tonight!

Ugh, that sucks Duke.

FYI, the Master Chief Saga playlist is Normal without skulls on, but I don't think you were doing that anyway.

I have to say, ever since I stopped playing Halo for That Other Game (which also has flaws don't get me wrong) I honestly can't say I've missed the infuriating problems of MCC a whole lot. Don't get me wrong, when it plays right it's damn near perfect, but the lack of dedicated servers....meh.

I'll come back when (if) it gets actually fixed and when I sour on what I'm doing now. It's been over a month now and they still can't fix the most basic fucking MM lobby problems. Not a good sign.
