The Halo 5 lobby

     What's the deal? How do you mute people? How do you tell who is talking? Ok I can now see my friends are online and join them easily but what are they playing? Who is in the party with them? Anyone got any answers to these questions? At least the game works. Thoughts?   P.S Has anyone done any customs? Does the lobby work ok for that?

We did 8v8 slayer customs much of the night. Created 2 live parties for chat. Very confusing at first.

I think we need to post on the waypoint forums. Status is needed in roster and better party chat is needed. For me it worked fine, I heard my team without party chat in MM Arena. I think because there is no status info in roster people are running open parties so people can jump in and find out what's going on.

My only complaints would be these interface issues. I need to see if someone is alone or with a group so I don't spam them with invites thinking they're alone and lonely. And I miss hearing everyone in big customs. Talking trash to Medic when he's on the other team is half the fun!

It is weird all you see is an emblem, no gamertag, level, division etc.  I also miss being able to see how many medals and what kind I got after a match, a lot of stats in the post-game carnage report are simply gone. Also wish it'd list the req energy level required when browsing the req collection.

I posted on the lobby issue in the waypoint forum for issues, but fear it may be a waste of time because my complaint may be lost in the desert of Timmie BS.

Can you add the link, Achy? Maybe if a bunch of us pile on to your post it will get some notice. I thought I posted, but can't find mine. But here's Deep's (if the link works here)

It was a Timmie thread, but is so active I found it at the top:

https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/forums/6e35355aecdf4fd0acdaee3cc4156f...

Up to 37 pages.  I was in the middle of page 28.  Don't know how useful it will be in documenting problems though.  As I said in my original post it is a Timmie desert.  One guy complained about the color of his armor for example.  Not enough color choices.  I will post on Deep's thread, but honestly 343 should put up a stickied thread for concerns/problems etc. and actively monitor it.

Im seeing the same complaint over and over again. so even though this thread may get buried, I think the issue is big enough as to where 343 will see it.

I know what you mean Achy. People are complaining because there aren't 15 emblems to choose from or 10 maps. FFS.

I think the map issue is that, aside from Truth and Regret, all the smaller maps have the same basic architecture (UNSC).  And quite a few of the maps are variations of another map in Halo 5.  For example, Regret is a variation of Truth.  Eden is a variation of Empire, etc.  Finally, team slayer only has 6 maps.  They left out Eden, Empire, Orion, and Pegasus.  Likewise with other playlists not having all the maps.

Maybe it's from being screwed over so many times but IMO having three maps that work with no lag on day one would be enough to me. Maps will come later.

I posted on Deeps thread that the issues were obviously due to the age of the participants and not 343.

I suppose you can always use spectator mode to see what your friends are doing. That's a nice feature, but it does take some time to use.

Reminds me a bit of H3, lest we forget.  To find out what frends were doing one had to use the XBL friends tab as I remember.  True now as well.  I think Reach really spoiled us.  Note though that when 343 took over Reach they got  the code.  Why the eff they can't implement a lobby (and chat) system like Reach is beyond me.

if there is an option to join a friend you can join que while they are in the game and see who is in the fireteam and what they are playing and if you want to stay it will throw you in the next game as soon as the current one is over but that is the closest it gts

Yeah, I think that's by design.  That way, you can't be in a party and have an omniscent person giving callouts.

     Oh I've seen lots of talk about it on waypoint. They have addressed that they are aware people don't like the lobby set up and are "looking at it". They mentioned some other things they were going to look at as well. Sorry I can't find the source.

     The lobby situation is killing me. It's like I'm not really hooking up and playing with anyone because it seems inconvenient. Every once in awhile someone messages me or just joins my lobby but not very often.

On halo.bungie.org, the first two responses to the question of playing Halo 5 or MCC for this customs were MCC. Yikes!

I don't post there anymore, so it wasn't me.

Yeah the few times I've been on mm I've just gone solo even though a half dozen other people are playing because I can't tell what they are doing.  Of course I haven't been paying attenion and have no idea what this requisition stuff is about, or if I can even join people until I get my 10 matches in for the team playlists, etc.

I figure that if some friends have a party chat going that you can just join the chat to find out what they are doing if it is not invite only.
