(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Following the release of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, many users have experience a number of issues, mainly with the multiplayer matchmaking system.
Though 343 Industries plans on releasing a fix for these problems on Wednesday, Franchise Development Director “Frankie” has given gamers a little trick on how to deal with the problem until it is officially fixed.
“When you are in the matchmaking state, looking for players, make sure that the column on the right is headed by the string, ‘In Lobby’ — usually with gray boxes beneath, until a whole game is gathered. If it’s in any other state, or you don’t see that it says ‘In Lobby’ as pictured (below), you will not successfully join a game,” says a post on HaloWayPoint. “If it’s in any other state, or you don’t see that it says “In Lobby” as pictured, you will not successfully join a game. Simply press “B” to back out to the main menu, then go back into Multiplayer and Find Game. You should see “In Lobby” and have a much better chance of finding a good session. These shots demonstrate “good” and “bad” conditions you should be attempting to get to.”
“Awkward? Yes. Sorry! But simple and a tiny band aid while we work on the bigger medicine.”
Halo: The Master Chief Collection was released on November 11th for the Xbox One.
