I have been playing it and they are asking everyone possible to log onto tonight's flight that begins at 5pm PT. This is a very good sign because it means a code/matchmaking stress test, they actually state "services stress test", which is something that you do on the far end near ready to go.
@Sylxeria, I haven't had any issues with getting stuck at all. A few times we couldn't fill the last slot or two and it simply reset to finding player but it only did that one time and we loaded up immediately and away we went. This was on Competitive and Social games so no issues I have seen on that front. Out of all the games I have seen lag one time when a Wraith went sideways across an open area at warp speed and then everything was normal after that. And yeah...having a blast, win or lose.
It's not getting stuck or lagging; it's the searching part. It'll connect the session fine, sometimes in seconds. The lobby will fill up, and then after the lobby is full - as in all eight players are found - it'll immediately empty out and restart the search.
Just now I had the lobby fill up in under thirty seconds and then it empties out, but the second attempt it launches just fine. It's not "getting stuck", it just empties out after it's *full*. I might be explaining it poorly but it's not struggling to find a player or two when it does this.
Best way I can explain it:
--Enter playlist and start searching
--Within twenty or seconds players will be found and there'll be enough for a game.
--One of two things happens: Within the next few seconds EVERY OTHER PLAYER VANISHES and the search resets without warning....
--Or the game launches in just as much time.
In Big Team playlists I deal with several resets before games finally launch. It's not a long, long wait like on release. Lobby's fill up real quick and without much wait. But then after all players are found it empties out all of a sudden. No lag, no stragglers trying to be found, it fills up then empties. It'll do this once or twice for Slayer-sized playlists, but it's a plague in Big Team.
I made absolutely 100% sure that all traces of the old Insider were gone before I installed this. The regular MCC isn't even installed (Where this problem happened too. Not just in the Flights.). It's still happening even despite that. :/
*Edit to add* that I was looking at the clip of such a reset I took back in April (Was gonna use it in a report but never got around to it...) and for ONE FRAME it'll say "Leaving Matchmaking." before it resets the lobby. Doesn't actually boot me into any menus or anything, just resets the lobby.
