Failing to join friend's lobbies

I have had my friend over since launch. We both have the hardest time joining each other. It will say joining game and connecting, but then will fail to connect to host. He is sitting right next to me and we both have open NAT…
It has been about 20 minutes now of resetting our xbones and games.

Aside from this search times are still 10-15 minutes and once we get into a game we will get kicked at the map loading screen.

Yesterday it was working better to where we would find games once every 10-20 minutes.

Of course it’s frustrating and I hope things can be resolved swiftly. I love halo and I think MCC once working will be the best game of them all.

I can’t wait until it’s good to go and we can start cranking 50’s :slight_smile:
