We’re aware that users are experiencing long search times in matchmaking. In order to isolate the issues, please post reports of this issue in here.

To better assist us in our investigation, please include answers to the following questions:

  • What is your NAT type? (Xbox One dashboard -> Settings -> Network -> NAT type)
  • Were you searching alone or in a party? How many were in the party?
  • Which playlists were you searching in?
We thank you for your continued patience as we work to resolve these issues.
Have played 10 matches since launch. 15-30 minute wait to find enough people for a match. 9 of the games have been either 3v1 or 3v2. When I am connected though there is little to no lag.

I haven't found a game in 15 Minutes and I'm still searching right now.I also tried to restart the search.
This is pathetic! I love halo because Bungie made it. Now 343 took over and messed it all up. This is by far the biggest embarrassment in videogame history. Taking the holy grail of videogames and turning it into a sh*t show...
