[Locked] Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer not working

OP Zicko Mode

Multiplayer for Halo 5: Guardians isn't working for some reason. Is anyone else? experiencing this problem? how do I fix it?
Good day,
I have connection problems as well. Yours may not be as bad but here it goes...

Each time I open Halo 5, I'm always welcomed with my Spartan not showing up in the customization lobby. When I click on one of the armor pieces (Helmet, Armor) It tells me it was "Unable to retrieve data." When I open arena or warzone, it says one of the members of my fireteam cannot play, even though I'M THE ONLY ONE IN THE FIRETEAM.

Dunno what's up with it. I reboot the game, doesn't work. I reboot my console, doesn't work. I reboot my router, STILL doesn't work. All Xbox services are up atm. I'm not banned from multiplayer and my router has more than decent connection.

I read on Xbox.com that when it says you cannot play multiplayer because one of the members of the fireteam is unable to play, it normally means some of the members of your fireteam are "Geographically Scattered." I live in Ohio, USA but maybe the game is trying to tell me I'm in a rural area or some -Yoink-? Each time I play with friends their games work perfectly and mine doesn't. They always kick me now before they start a game because my connection to the game servers is terrible, and it wont let the game start.

The majority of the H5 players have great connection but the minority, Like me, have terrible, terrible connection. I love Halo. I've been playing ever since Halo 3 released. I absolutely love warzone in H5 and arena too. But I cant even start a game now, and honestly my love for the series is almost gone now...

343i needs to do something about this BS. I've had xbox gold for 4 years now and I cant even join multiplayer games. I don't know why I even pay for multiplayer services if I cant play multiplayer.

...Am I the only one, and could somebody PLEASE, PLEASE tell me WHAT THE -Yoink- IS GOING ON!? I've had this problem for about 2 months now. AND I AM GETTING REALLY,REALLY TIRED OF IT.
Had this problem. Signed out of halo way point and had to restart xbox one and solved
