Most people would prefer open communication, yes, but if youre just being bullied relentlessly for months why the hell would you? We know theyre working on a big update, we know they will be releasing relic and ODST in the future, they literally have nothing else to say to the community because no matter what they say, the community will twist their words into meaning something negative and start badgering them for that as well. One of my main points too is that half of the games content works at almost 100% capacity, and the other about 75%, why not play the campaign, the main purpose of the MASTER CHIEF COLLECTION, and just wait for the MULTIPLAYER COLLECTION to get a fix?
An organization that has taken $200+ million from its loyal fans, fails to deliver on the biggest advertised features, repeatedly advertised post-launch "fixes" that are anything but, and finally stops communicating with the same people who gave it $200 million is being bullied?
Tell you what. Give me $200 million and I'll let you bully me on whatever forum you want. I won't hide, either. I'll crank out posts seven ways to Sunday.
And go play campaign?
So let's say you buy a TV. It has internet connectivity, a host of apps, and full HD. After you bought it, you discovered that it won't work with your cable provider, despite the TV having been explicitly advertised to do so. When inquiring about a return, you're told that it can't be because "fixes are in progress" and that "you can use the other features". You dutifully download 10 patches over the course of 3 months . . . none of which fix the issue. But that's okay, because it can still be used as a computer monitor. No reason to be angry or frustrated here. Just wait for that 11th patch. It's sure to fix everything.
Well that analogy really doesnt make any sense but sure, And how much of that 200 million dollars actually goes to the employees at 343? combine all of their wages together and their pay wouldnt put a dent in that number, most of the money is split between microsoft and resources to make the next game, patches, and new content, if youre that mad with the game, return it, you could have done it day one but you didnt, thats your own mistake. You cant blame the company that "took your money" when you could have just as easily got it back in the first place and saved all of us the pain of having to deal with the toxicity that is the community.
I bought this game digitally, I would have returned if I could, but I MS wouldn't give me a refund. It's been over 3 months and I still have massive problems playing with friends. I'm currently facing all the following:
- can't connect to player, players can't connect to me.
- synchronizing data then game freezes.
- when searching for matches, party gets split and we get sent into different games not teams but games.
- chat is completely broken, even when in private chat the game will somehow throw u back into game chat randomly and frequently.
- when returning from a match to lobby party leader will randomly get changed to other players in party.
- at times you have to wait a long time in post game screen before the Back option appears to return to your party while other players have already returned.
- which brings another issue, why is there a 2 step to get back to your party? If I don't back out of the post game screen then I'm not in my party at all!
- when backing out its rare that it will bring the party back to lobby even tho you had selected to bring party back with you.
- some games are still taking a rediculous amount of time to join players, even tho it says players found, then it freezes.
- some playlist will find players and matches start in a timely matter, other playlist will get hung up on players found.
- hit boxes are off for halo2 & 3
- 4player coop has lag & sound sometimes is off. (It works fine with 2pl coop)
The only issue I had with halo 2 over 10yrs ago was, some disconnection problems but it was rare and the modem standbying, which wasn't even the games fault but ppl abusing certain loopholes. Btw that was also fixed in a timely matter Then. I traded my 360 for xbone & had everything ready to go for midnight release. 1 day, 2 days passed by, I was still stoked thinking it was just such a massive amount of people playin & servers couldn't handle it. After a week I started to get concerned, after 3 weeks the eternal waiting time was minimized, after a month uneven teams improved. 3 months later an inexcusable amount of issues haven't been fixed. And I'm sure I only wrote a small percentage of bugs not anywhere near all of them, but the ones written down completely hinders the halo experience we all grew up with and were promised once again but failed in almost every aspect.
