It happened during my stream yesterday (02/04/19), though I can’t remember the exact time. I’d say maybe around 3:10 PM EST.

Playlist and/or Game Type
Social Games (8v8), Halo 3 Big Team Slayer on Longshore

Hi Postums - is this related to the connection interrupted error when loading into a game or something else? If it’s the connection interrupted, I will log in to MCC tonight and get a data point to add to this thread to help with the investigation.

This is in relation to players who are searching in a playlist, match into a game, and then as it’s loading the map they are unable to and get kicked out entirely.

    –Video shows that the issue (at least the version I have) manifests itself in all matchmaking servers becoming unavailable after being kicked out.

    Other details: I am kicked out of the game at map load screen, but friends load into game, even if I am party leader.If helpful, it is likely I can generate more occurrences of this issue as it is a chronic problem for me. Something of note is that I had an anomaly where I was able to get into a matchmaking game on Beaver Creek on 2/3 , so that might be useful to compare to all other cases of me attempting matchmaking last weekend. Thanks for looking into this issue.

Unfortunately I don’t have the exact time or date when it happened to me but it’s an extremely rare occurrence for me. Both times it happened I was searching with a group in BTB Halo CE ( can’t remember the exact numbers in my party). Once the game found 16 people my screen went blank on the map loading screen and I was taken back to the main menu with the message " your connection was interrupted". Oddly enough both times I did not receive a quit ban and was able to search again right away for any game.

TIME: Tried searching around 9:48est(6:48pst)

This is the third game of the night that’s had issues. First Deg Taramee who lives in the UK was dropped at loading right before match.

Second our 8 player lobby was split into two separate games one 3 on 5 and 5 on 1 in the other. My game went on about 5 minutes until we got the Halo screen and eventually had to quit and restart as it didn’t load past that.

Third, me and Deg were dropped when the game went into loading screen.

In most games tonight we are experiencing lag as well. Choppy gameplay and delayed inputs.

This time we was playing social snipes but it happens in every playlist

This is still happening to me constantly. I can still not load into any non custom games outside of 2v2, and 2v2 only loads me in about 50% of the time.

ISSUE/FEEDBACK: MatchMaking game fail to load
Playlist - Social Game
Map - Blackout
Mode - Slayer, Objective, Sniper(Custome settings)
Size - 4v4
Game - H1~4

The “Connection Interrupted” bug happens to me every time I try to get into a match, this kicks me out of the match immediately after the map begins to load. So much so that the game is entirely unplayable. I want to have some fun playing halo but can’t. Please fix this issue 343.

Matchmaking never works for me. It’s been at least a year and a half and I still can’t play. No matter which game, game type, time, or location it just doesn’t load what so ever. All according to a “connection issue”

I’ve been having several issues. 1. Freezes on loading into a matchmaking game. 2. Halo 3 matches do not have any game audio, but menus still do. 3. Major lag on Halo 3 maps about half way through a match during the same Audio bug. 4. Freezes on the loading out screen after a match. Didn’t have these issues several months ago

I have this problem Alot. I can usually play 2 to 3 matches then at loading screen it sits for a minute then says server connection lost. The same thing happens to my son who is on a separate connection, but same ISP.
