As I type this, I am stuck in a game where none of the reds are visible, people randomly die, some noob is talking incomprehensibly on chat, and I can't respawn.

Ended up getting kicked to the lobby.

I've had the same kind of experiences, and worse. There have been a few matches that I literally punched an enemy 5 times or unloaded multiple clips into an enemy and not a single ounce of damage was done. Then my shields would start to drop, then my spartan would drop without ever hearing or seeing the shots from whatever hit me.

I think Halo 3 had similar issues at launch, but I'm not sure about Reach. I'm sure there will be an update before the end of the month.

  • No. There is more. But you are not worthy. Not yet
As far as I understand these aren't issues with the servers, but just a matter of individuals' connections speeds.

Aside from a little bit of lag on that Rag game we played together I haven't had any serious issues. Clearly I live in a land of rainbows.

Just playing Shootout in Valhalla. A Banshee fell through the geometry and got stuck outside the level. I was waiting to see if it could get back, and finally it did... running straight into a tree and exploding for no apparent reason...

I still think it's kind of stupid that 343i/Microsoft doesn't provide more feedback on peers' connections. If you're going to go the p2p route (personally I like sticking with that because it works for me and I'd rather not worry about servers being turned off),* it's nice to know whose issues are causing slowdowns. It really annoys me when people complain about Halo 4's "shit netcode", when it's often an issue of their own connections or microwaves in the background.

*Of course Capac prolly has a different opinion on this. More controls over locality preferences would be nice like Reach.

I think other aspects of it are bigger problems. Only host gets kicking privileges, lag switching, america and japan based developers assuming everyone playing has a google fiber connection instead of optimizing for wider ping ranges etc.

America's internet is crap, recent stimulus funds aside. Only about 60% of people actually have broadband, and our ISPs certainly don't provide fiber-level speeds.

Not as crap as here. And my point still stands that companies act as if everyone has quantum entanglement routers providing  < 5ms ping.

I once had a game of invasion where all of the guys on the enemy team tunred into nothing but invincible floating guns and armor abilities. No idea what the fuck happened there.

I'm not sure. I probably rage quit so it probably- actually, I think that I did watch it in my temporary history, so I may have saved it. I'll have to check.
