While telling the warthogs to move to location across map, they stopped at chasm instead of using road. Hopefully the path mapping is just a bug and I don't have to plan out the routes for them.
i tried playing the beta. the first time it froze on the warning screen, then it updated and froze, then it froze on the what i guess is an opening cinematic as that froze as well, then it froze on the title screen, then it froze on the cinematic again.
Sometimes I get stuck at the "waiting for players" screen after the game has started (I can see my teammates troops moving around) so I just have to quit the game. -_-
Took 4 tries to actually get opened.
  • 1st try went black and never showed anything
  • Tries 2-3 all went to the main menu, but froze when I hit start
Hard quit the game each time and reopened. Worked on the 4th try, but "buzzed", froze, and then crashed about 20 minutes into the game.
A note on gameplay:
Domination mode seems ridiculous in its current state. Taking away tickets to win is not what anyone envisions of a RTS victory. Keep the points and just did bonuses whether resource, shields, whatever. But taking away that last March on the enemy base is just cruel. So far the gameplay has been so buggy and full of lackluster matches that I can't assess the unit abilities. Increase the hard cap if you want the large epic battles promised. I'll keep playing but it makes me wonder what next year will hold.
day 2
first attempt. Go to push start screen, message about an update, game restarts, black screen with music.
second attempt. Got to push start screen, push start, freeze but music plays.
third attempt, new game configuration update, restart, Halo wars 2 faded on dark screen, frozen.
after attempting to play Halo wars 2 beta for 20 minutes, I have not been able to actually play test at all.
there was no 4th attempt
I get "the connection to the services has been lost." need help!! I've reinstalled it several times.
Also sometimes Atroxi's troops will move at different paces, sometimes a squad will be way ahead of the main group other times way behind.

sometimes bullets will fly in a completely different direction than the troop is facing

bullets will fly forwards sideways super often

spartans when running away and shooting backwards will sometimes seemingly glide across the ground.

troops will sometimes will glitch around if they are off screen.
Everything loads up fine for me till I get to the push start menu and once I press it i get "We couldn't get your latest saved data. Try again or use this game or app offline." Everytime I try again it comes back up. How do I fix
Game also freezes on occasion but allies and enemies can still move while I just get audio that I'm being attack and can't do anything. Unit movement and selection is also sometimes iffy where they don't go where i want or no movement indicator shows up when i hit X so I dont know if the command went through.
While not a shocking idea, why not allow people to fill all 4 spots of a game? this would allow people to not only move at their own pace, but let people actually enjoy a full match of this really fun game!!
Troops get stuck at the door sometimes, when bases upgrade often the pads are under the dirt as the terrain has not flattened to accommodate, there is no gunfire or explosions, maybe thats on purpose although it doesnt bode well for a beta test if the engine cant handle gunfire. Also check mac blasts, I have used it and killed everything near it and other times just done some damage. Plus random graphics glitches on the ground, big rectangular splotches of blue and black that takes a bit to load the proper ground textures
I haven't had any crashing problems, but gameplay wise air units seem redundant and useless, marines coming out of the main base already counter your tech 2 units, let alone the rocket upgrade that is now no longer an ability, but a marine that constantly fires them, the rocket ability needs to have a higher chance to miss air units and all air units need the chaff pod ability from hw1, otherwise as of now using air units goes nowhere
The beta freezes and crashes when the tutorial video tries to load.

Players keep disconnecting.

Map chunks slow to load when moving the camera around
Official Bug Report for 343 Studio's Halo Wars 2:

_____________________
Freezing while starting up
----------------------------------
While starting up the game, when the cut scene explaining Halo Wars 2 occurs, it gives you the option to press B.
If you mash B or hit it before the cut scene occurs the game will freeze up, requiring that you quit and start up the game again.

To bypass this simply wait for the cut scene to start playing and then press B to skip it.
(NOTE: Freezing seems to still randomly occur while starting to load the game, but it doesn't happen as often before or after the cut scene)

_______________________
Players kicked out of games
-------------------------------------
Some times after matchmaking occurs when the game is waiting for the players to load in a player can occasionally be kicked from the game entirely, forcing the remaining player to either 1v2 or quit.

__________________________
Troops get stuck in specific area
------------------------------------------
On lower half of the map(2v2 domination map) if you try to send units from the bottom of your base to the enemies base they will occasionally stay on the lower half while still attempting to go right/left to the enemies base. This causes them to get stuck on the wall and thus they never make it to the enemies base.

To avoid this try sending your units to point A and then to the enemies base.

__________________________________________________________
These are my bug reports so far. If I find more I'll be sure to report them.

Thank you again 343 for the amazing bring back of a game I've held near to my heart since the original Halo Wars release.

I was stuck at the press "a" screen. As soon as I got to the screen is took out the batteries of my controller and plugged them back in and it worked. Now stuck at downloading latest game configuration data...
