Are we done beta testing yet?
As is the trend nowadays, big-name titles don’t get released polished and complete, that’s what those day one suckers are for. Recently, the biggest suckers have been the Halo faithful who have been crushed under the immense weight of issues associated with the The Master Chief Collection.
Well, fear no longer young spartans, because according to early reports of the latest MCC patch, those pesky problems that have plagued the game may finally be gone — most notably improved matchmaking performance and success rates. Here’s a list of what 343 Industries has attempted to improve:
- Made a variety of updates to improve matchmaking performance and success rates
- Improved matchmaking search times/time to match
- Improved stability throughout the matchmaking process across all titles
- Improved party stability
- Made improvements to multiplayer shot registration
- Improved campaign stability across a variety of levels
- Addressed stability issues for matchmaking and custom games
- Fixed issues around resuming H2A Campaign from “remastered” mode
- Improved medal display consistency
- Fixed issues regarding aim assist which resulted in the reticle being pushed away from an enemy
- Improved shot registration consistency between host / client in peer-to-peer custom game matches
- Resolved a variety of UI inconsistencies, including team color randomization, medals, and in-game scoreboard display
