Games working very nicely on my end. The only Problems were standart maps in the H3 doubles playlist and that you matched teams as a solo player in doubles. Besides that I had a very good time.

California, US
Time: 11:30am - 12:30pm
Search: 60 seconds
Ping: 41ms
Infection
  • Italy
  • From 7pm to 9:20pm (italian hour)
  • Searched in both playlist, ranked one took 1-2 minutes to find players while in infection searches were really quick. Anyway, yesterday in grifball there was almost no lag, today infection games, with gametypes where zombies had shields, were impossible to win. No chance to do bullseye in both H3 and H4. Had no chance to play a single H2 game in 5-6 matches.
  • Average ping from western europe server was 55-60 as always
  • New York, NY
  • 1 PM to 4 PM EDT
  • Average search times were about 45 seconds. Played about 15 games in the span of 3 hours.
  • Ping is 35 ms

Matchmaking --

I had no problems looking for a match with my average wait time being about 45 seconds but some did take a bit longer than others. I also think that it is a great idea that voting for maps and gametypes has been removed that way it's fair game for everyone involved and it isn't constantly Halo 3; there is some variety. I had no issues with connectivity as well.

Increase the frequency at which we get regular Infection gametypes. Sometimes I just want to go back to the good old days but most of the time I get into variants like the ones below.

Gametypes --

Creeping Death:
  • Infected enemies shouldn't show on the Survivors motion sensors at all times. It's not very "creeping" when the survivors know where you are the entire time regardless of you being cloaked.
  • Add more than one starting Zombie.
Hide and Seek:
  • The idea of the gametype is for the Infected to find the Survivors, hence the name. Survivors on sensors at all times doesn't really make sense.
  • Infected have greatly increased health. I'd turn this down a bit.
Hivemind:
  • It takes two hits to kill a Survivor. Should only be one.
  • Infected should receive a bit more of a boost in speed.
  • Italy
  • Saturday , 11AM PDT
  • Searched games for 2 hours and found 9 matches. Search time varied between 1 minute and 3 minutes.
  • Ping is 51 ms on West Europe.
Why not have h2 hardcore? These game types are so terrible and not fun, makes it a chore to play and people quit every game.

youd get way more participation with decent game types

found games easily though so that’s nice
  • Where: Ohio, USA
  • When: 8/18/2018 at 1:00PM EST
  • Duration & Outcome: 2 hour duration of solo matchmaking in both playlists. Quick search times but did experience some some hit registration issues in Halo 2 Classic (this may be connection related seen here: https://youtu.be/9i8OmsJUv1E) I also got a "Connecting to Session" screen in a Halo 2 Classic match seen here: https://youtu.be/lmGH-zo0ieE?t=18
  • Local server Ping: 25 ms North Central US
Friday 8/17
Ranked Halo 3 Team Doubles
Action Sack

Where: Rio de Janeiro - Brazil
When: 10AM PDT - 1PM PDT
Duration and result: I did about 4 search attempts for 45 minutes in both modes and did not get any results. (Playing alone)
Ping: southeast of Brazil - 140 ms

Saturday 8/18
Ranked Halo 2 Classic Team Arena
Infection
Where: Rio de Janeiro - Brazil

When: 12PM - 2PM PDT
Duration and result: I did about 4 20-minute searches in both modes.
During the search H2 classic found no match and Infection found in all inclusive with less than 20 minutes and the search time between another match was almost instantaneous.
unlike Friday, today I'm not playing alone anymore with my wife on the same console.

With some players exiting during the match and interim bets, everything is working perfectly so far. Connection without bugs or sudden disconnections.

Of the matches found 90% Halo 3 10% Halo 2 Halo 4 0%

Ping: southeast of Brazil - 132 ms

Still playing
Saturday 8/18

Infection
Where: Rio de Janeiro - Brazil
When: 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM PDT
Ping: southeast of Brazil - 132 ms

I finally got to play Infection of Halo 4, and for the first time today the lag was very strong.
Teleporting players and the game disconnecting.
Soon thereafter a match on Halo 3 fell and was in perfect condition.
Saturday 8/18 H2C Team Arena

Where: Rio de Janeiro - Brazil
When: 3:30 PM - 4:16 PM PDT
Ping: southeast of Brazil - 132 ms

After almost 1 hour searching for only the H2C, I finally managed to find a match.
With the exception of traitor players the mode worked perfectly without any big or disconnect
