Pre patch I could at least find a match every now and then. Post patch I just keep getting the same "Lost connection to host" message without it ever even finding a game. I'm not even mad anymore, I'm legitimately dumb founded/speechless. It actually got worse after the patch.....like wtf. The sad part is, I know one the Halo5 beta is ready, it will magically work like a charm, because that was the only reason this collection was created in the first place. They repackaged other peoples hard work, terribly I might add, just so they could build hype for their game that is going to flop just as terribly as their last one. They used the fans of the actual franchise (Halo 1-3, since I don't consider the abomination that was 4 (refuse to call it Halo 4)) and stole money from us so we could try out their copy and pasted 4 mixed with Titanfall/Destiny/Advanced Warfare game something 5.
The absolute worst part? Throughout this whole ordeal, I have seen ONE apology, ZERO improvement, ZERO mention of compensation, and appalling feedback on what to expect/what is going wrong. Right now, the @Halo twitter should literally be pleading and apologizing to every single person that bought this game, yet they are absolutely silent. Not one word about how the patch fixed absolutely nothing.
If there is no plan for some sort of compensation, then I am officially done with 343 as a company. Other companies acknowledge their missteps, and come up with a plan to compensate the people that spent their hard earned money on their product. Yet 343 has been silent, which is inexcusable considering they are funded by one of the most powerful, and profitable companies on the planet. They are in charge of the flagship title for one of the biggest gaming companies in the world, yet fail so miserably and still have people defending them. Their is no excuse for what has gone on here, and I refuse to give them a pass on anything.
Where are you 343? Why are you keeping us in the dark and not acknowledging that your patch actually just made the game worse? Every member of your public relations staff should be immediately terminated, along with whoever is in charge of matchmaking solutions. Their performance is not to the standards that should be expected from one of the most well funded and important developers on the planet. Appalling, this whole situation is appalling.
