Halo: MCC is only a few updates away from making or breaking the game (even more)


Update:

After viewing the Halo forums and the #HaloMcc on twitter, apparently the update broke more things than its supposed to fix.

Original:

343i have launched yet another update (103mb) for their broken game, Halo: Master Chief Collection. This is the newest of the many patches said to improve matchmaking, can it actually fix some fucked aspects of the game? Only time will tell.

It seems Matchmaking is actually improving since the previous update, and with this one lets hope it stays on that path. Unfortunatley 343 Industries are only able to push out these fixes and update weekly. It may only be a few more weeks before the game turns into the thing we gamers have paid for.

Here is a summarised list of details on the 103mb Halo MCC patch that 343 just released:

  • Made a change to allow for matches to start once minimum player counts are met, allowing for faster matching times.
  • Made an update to resolve issues that caused false matches to be created, which resulted in a variety of matchmaking issues, including slow matchmaking and bad session starts.
  • Streamlined the process for maintaining party continuity through the matchmaking process.
  • Made an update to the high-level matchmaking flow that will reset lobbies after each match. Moving forward, players and party leaders need to press “B” after the post-game-carnage report, and select a playlist for their next match. This flow is consistent with previous Halo titles.
  • Improved user experience through removal of non-actionable error messages. This will allow for a more seamless matchmaking flow with less interruption and confusion.
  • Improved the post-game experience to fix an issue that could result in a player getting sent to another player’s lobby, rather than returning to the matchmaking screen.

Assuming that the update actually improves upon the issues it’s said to address, Matchmaking may now be a little better and worth some peoples time.  The Halo Master Chief Collection is only a few updates away from becoming a game that should have launched.
