Definitely an issue with Series X. Happens to my group often. Best bet is to hard reset the box each time you boot up Halo, that should minimize the issues. It may stem (at least partially) from the quick resume feature.MartinSsempa869 wrote:We’ve tried going through those steps for our networks, open NAT for all individuals. It’s odd, we see no rhyme or reason for who makes it into the fireteam, including for when my brother in my same household plays with us. I may make it in, but he won’t, or the third individual at another network won’t. My brother and I both use the Series X and the friend uses Series S. I feel like I’ve seen a few people on new-gen consoles mentioning this. Has there been any reporting of this issue or is this a seemingly isolated situation?Chimera30 wrote:troubleshoot your networks. If one of you has a bad NAT, it could make joining a Fireteam together difficult. Investigate to see what kind of issues could be preventing you from forming a Fireteam before you try and play together again.MartinSsempa869 wrote:I play Halo 5 with my friend online every night, but we have the same issue every night where we create a fire team, try to begin a game, and one of us is Unable To Join. By the time the one account is given the message, the other is already stuck loading/deploying into game. Rather than make the other wait 6-10 minutes, we often just immediately quit the game and retry. We don’t want to keep leaving games so we often find ourselves trying to play social games more than ranked playlists we enjoy for the purpose of not pissing off our teammates. We’ve gotten hit with bans for this, I guess rightfully so, but when we get booted from each other’s teams multiple times a night, our alternative is not playing the game together at all to avoid leaving games too much, when we practically bought the Series S and Series X to play Halo with friends during the pandemic. Any ideas on how to avoid this problem? Or is there nothing I can do to avoid being banned other to play out every single game we don’t get placed into correctly? Is the Unable to Join problem common for other fireteams?
