Can anyone answer what the heck has happened to the servers this week? This is beyond latency, and beyond internet connection. Halo 5 MM has been unplayable for the past few days. I've never seen so much teleporting, blank shots, and pure ghosting around the map. I understand a game here or there, but 75% of my matches are genuinely laugable in terms of servers. To lose rank to a better team is understandable, but to lose rank due to something out of my control just makes me not want to play.

I've provided links to explain what I mean:

Normal connection: https://xboxdvr.com/gamer/ozpreyy/video/71298936
Shots go where they're placed, connect when they should, and players move to expected positions.

This week's connection: https://xboxdvr.com/gamer/ozpreyy/video/71298889
Shots disappear into the void, don't register when placed correctly, and player movement is unexpected to the point of resembling Portal more than Halo.
For everyone fix the issue of customs crashing
Spawning locations are awesome
Is there a way to have our original stats show up in MCC?

Link It's not 343I end. Click on the link and then again.
I think that the Servers need to be fixed the most and Mainly fix the reconnection issue to custom games after you lag out of them.
speaking about the lag in the last week again, its so ridiculous I'm not going to play H5 again until they confirm they've fixed it, they're going to destroy the population the longer this goes on. Why does no other game have this issue if its XBL or are there other games experiencing the same affect ?

For constructive purposes here's an example of a match that was terrible, I had another guy in my party and he was also complaining about the lag the entire game.
https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/games/halo-5-guardians/xbox-one/mode/arena/matches/2f6f1b49-cff6-478e-8dd1-491e1c87be59/players/reneggade?gameHistoryMatchIndex=0&gameHistoryGameModeFilter=All

here's an example of a match I played in BTB just 15 min prior that was actually decent and didn't exhibit any of the lag problems.
https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/games/halo-5-guardians/xbox-one/mode/arena/matches/15d8927c-bfbd-42af-a528-2bda32f59493/players/reneggade?gameHistoryMatchIndex=2&gameHistoryGameModeFilter=All

and when I say decent I mean there was still the random person lagging but I figure that was their connection because for the most part I and everyone else was registering shots just fine.
Thank you for the update.

Would it be possible to get a graph of Team Arena, along with which playlists are what color? Not sure if that's still a thing?

That would be an understandable point of XBL Services weren't all showing up as working. During the time this lag first appeared, yes, the core services were having issues. Now that the services appear to be working as intended, the persistency of unplayable games counteracts that point. The Halo servers have had problems for some time, which has been known for quite some time, the LAN experience has had issues with unregistered shots and blank melees, which are also known, but the massive ammount of teleportation in-game is new and I feel needs to at least be addressed.

The XBL services page does not give details on all the of the services XBL provides.

The issues we are having now are with the Thunderhead service, which is not shown there. They are the service that supplies us with a pool of dedicated servers to run the game on.

The particular issue we are experiencing now is because at least one of the datacenters that provides that pool is showing severely degraded CPU performance. That is an issue completely outside 343 which we are working with XBL to fix.

Letting Matches Start Even if They Aren’t FullThere’s an ongoing issue that randomly drops players after a full match is found. This can result in players waiting awhile for that missing slot to get refilled. We are still searching for the main cause of this drop, but to alleviate the issue in the meantime, we’ve allowed matches to start without being full in several playlists. Currently, any playlist with 10 or more players in Social can start down 1-2 players. This has been resulting in overall faster matchmaking so far.
Thank you! Man, it was pretty annoying when searching social when all 10 slots would be filled for half a second, someone would get dropped, then it'd be stuck searching for another one or two players.

So that's why I got spawn trapped by a team of 8 Dominated players in WZA as a solo queuer...multiple times. I tolerated it by sitting on the respawn screen as long as possible.
I played a few games of WZA the other day and had the same experience. Matching against the same fireteam and it was a slaughter every time.

I appreciate you letting me know.
Why can't we change the maps/add new ones for slayer?
Everything else seems to be getting some love and attention.
Thank you!
