Sorry this is so late, but I just now saw this, and wanted to clarify that I meant that issues across the entirety of MCC will likely be addressed with each consecutive update on both console and PC, not just on PC for issues pertaining to whichever game is being ported to PC, which is how I think you interpreted my post.Xp3rious wrote:No offence, but that is a horrible way to look at it.jmandude15 wrote:Right now they're focusing on Reach and PC, which is why there's a bit of a drought of actual game and server-side updates. I imagine we'll be getting some substantive updates with the launch of Reach. It sounds like their working on fixes to the existing games in MCC for when they come to PC, so more should be on the way when each arrives.Xp3rious wrote:Are you guys going to do anything about the connection issues? People keep getting booted when the game is loading (Halo 3 Hardcore). Now, it may not matter in Social as much, but in Ranked playlists, people are deranking. And it makes no sense to derank when its 3v4 or 2v4 in an objective match (or even slayer). Why do I have to derank because someone got booted or left the game? How the heck do you win a CTF match when its 3v4?
Furthermore, after every 2-3 games; when I search again, I get kicked back to the "select playlist" screen. I have to restart the app again. This is happening more and more.
The playlist updates are great, but it doesn't seem like anything is being done about the bigger issues. This is a 10+ year old game. The amount of issues and bugs in this are ridiculously high. No wonder MCC population is declining.
If this is how the new halo is gonna be, I don't like the chances of it doing well or having a sizable population. Please address the bigger issues rather than just making playlist changes.
MCC seems to still be very much a work-in-progress. It sounds like lots of things are happening behind the scenes right now, so hopefully the relative lack of support the game has had recently is worth it in the long run.
That just means they have abandoned the maintenance of old games and replaced it with new games to make more money.
I completely understand as they are developing new games and I'm highly looking forward to it. However, they cannot just put something on the back burner because they have new games to work on. I work in IT and you don't abandon your old systems to work on new ones. Clients will be extremely upset and demand their money back.
Another thing that they need to start doing is at least address some of these posts here. They can either say that they're working on it, or that they don't want to work on it for whatever reason. Of course, they can't answer every post. However, they should do something about the bigger issues that come up time and time again. Connections and matchmaking, people getting booted and so on. What is the point of having a feedback section, when you can't even address the issues?
Personally, I have not seen one single post from 343 here (maybe I missed it).
Also I don't see in any way how they're abandoning the maintenance of old games, or how my post suggested anything of the sort. The entire point I was making was that they're likely continuing to work on things behind the scenes. They've talked about this in their development update blogs.
Additionally, most of the issues you described in your first post have to do with matchmaking, servers, and ranking systems, which work the same way in every game in MCC. So updates and fixes to those would apply to all games in MCC.
I'll agree though that I wish there was more of an indication of what issues 343 is working on. They have a new support website that seems aimed at better addressing player feedback. It only pertains to the Insider Program at the moment though, but hopefully it will expand to the entirety of MCC sooner than later.
