Within the first half hour of messing about in the Halo 5 menus I was disappointed with 2 things:
The Halo 5 Roster doesn’t tell you what your friends are doing. Are they playing campaign right now? Warzone? Arena? I’d like to know before inviting or joining them. Even if I press A in the player, it still doesn’t tell me what they are doing. The past few Halo games had this ability, why doesn’t this one? Kind of a big deal, especially for those with large friends lists.
We still can’t set our lobby privacy status to Open. Only options are Friends Only and Invite Only (same as MCC). We should be able to allow recent players and followers join our lobbies without having to invite them. This is how Halo lobbies worked prior to MCC. We should also be able to set a maximum party size, for example, 12 players. Once again, kind of a big deal, especially for those with a lot of followers.
Please fix. It’s extremely frustrating when important features are missing without explanation or logic.
