Hello MCC Insiders,

Thank you all for participating thus far in our public test. Many of you helped us out last weekend by testing some behind the scenes changes. We again need your help in a series of focused playtests.

We are asking everyone around the globe to play in Matchmaking as much as possible this weekend during the following windows for the various playlists we are using.

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday MCC Matchmaking Sessions:
  • 10AM PDT – 1PM PDT
  • 6PM PDT - 9PM PDT

Matchmaking Playlists:
Friday 8/17
  • Ranked Halo 3 Team Doubles
  • Action Sack

Saturday 8/18
  • Ranked Halo 2 Classic Team Arena
  • Infection

Sunday 8/19
  • Ranked Halo 3 Team Hardcore
  • Action Sack

Providing Feedback
Please include the following information and let us know how matchmaking works for you throughout the weekend.
  • Where (your location / region)
  • When (day time)
  • Duration & Outcome (how long you searched / played and the outcome)
  • Local server Ping
Example:
  • Washington, United States
  • 11 am PDT on Saturday
  • Searched for 4 hours and found 10 matches.
  • My lowest local ping was West US at 28.
This will help us see what server you should be connecting to, how many people were available in the matchmaking pool globally when you were searching, how many servers were available while you were searching, and help us identify any potential issues.

Thank you everyone who is actively playing in the Insider Program. You are helping very much in shaping the future of MCC. Please don’t forget to be vocal here in this thread if you are having any issues searching for matches and please use the “Where, When, for How Long, and Local server Ping” format when reporting you can’t find a match. Simply stating “Can’t find a match” is not helpful feedback.

Thank you everyone!

The play test starts at 10am their time (PDT) ... about 3 and a half more hours.
Got two games in a row where we got all matched up, loaded the map up, then got a "game over" screen where it looks like me or me and one other person are the only ones in the game. Then we return to the lobby and it looks like all of the players are together after the game ends. Then we get returned to matchmaking. H3 Team Hardcore Playlist.

  • Had weird "game over" matches two times in a row.
  • My lowest local ping was West US at 37ms.

  • Searching Action Sack solo: First two games matched in less than a minute. Third game matched, then the eighth dropped, and it sat there for a couple of minutes before restarting the search from scratch. When it did, a new game matched almost immediately, but then the eighth dropped again. This time it only took a few seconds before a new eighth was slotted in and the game started. Fourth game took longer to match, more like two minutes. Then searched Action Sack with as a duo: First game slowly filled up to 7 after about a minute, and then matched an eighth in short order. Ensuing games (lost exact count, 5-8 maybe?) all matched in less than a minute.
  • My lowest local ping was West US at 31ms.
The last couple builds I was getting skeptical on the progress of multiplayer, but this build has regained my confidence in the success of the update.

Searched in Idaho Falls with a ping of 47ms US West
Search times for the two matches i played in Action Sack playlist I kid you not 7 seconds and 6 seconds.
1-130 pm. Mountain Time Friday Aug. 17
  • Italy
  • From 7pm to 9:20pm (italian hour)
  • Searched in both playlist and this time was a lot better, almost no lag, I could even play a decent grifball game. The only thing I noticed is that every first search (when not auto restarting matchmaking) took a bit longer, even 5-10 minutes
  • Average ping from western europe server was 55-60
  • Where: Ohio, USA
  • When: 8/17/2018 at 1:00PM EST
  • Duration & Outcome: 2 hour duration of solo matchmaking in the Action Sack playlist. I had two occurrences where the search took about 4 minutes to find people. None of the games dropped and the connection seemed good on my end. The majority of games played were Halo 3.
  • Local server Ping: 25 ms North Central US
Europe / Sweden
