I was just playing Halo 4, trying to get the weekly challenges.
I complete hide and seek, having to beat a level on heroic or higher with the famine and cloud skulls on with no problems.
Now to where it gets annoying. While attempting the Composer challenge (beat it on Legendary) I was having a bit of trouble, I’ll admit to not being the best player in the world, but I was progressing at a decent pace none the less. About 3/4 of the way through the level I am suddenly disconnected from Xbox Live, upon trying to reconnect I was informed there was a new patch. It was my death knell.
It made my current play through of Composer useless. Either I install the patch to update the game and connect to Xbox Live but now have to start again since there is no continue campaign from last checkpoint option or deny it and be disconnected from Xbox Live, so I can’t access the challenges.
I am frustrated to put it mildly, has anyone else had to deal with this?
And why would 343i remove the feature to continue from the last checkpoint?
Finally, if I continue from the Bravo rally point, will I get the challenge or will I need to do it all from the beginning? (which I am quite sure is the case)
Do not play games online around typical update hours (look it up for your region, tends to be between 5:00-6:00am here). You will almost certainly be booted from the game. Keep this in mind especially when you get a heads up, and accept that certain will spring it on you surprisingly.
OP that really sucks. You’re right, and I’ve been skeptical about 343’s updates\challenges since I saw the challenge about winning “x” number of rounds of King of the Hill immediately after KOTH was removed from the play lists.

It is?! NOOOO! That made my Frags so good and was a MLG trick and everything! Ugh, it was an awesome glitch.

At least from what I have seen, in Halo 4, you cannot continue a game from a previous checkpoint if continuing from the menu, there are certain “rally points” normally 1 other in the level except for the starting point that you can continue from, but it is basically starting the mission from the half way point.
