i seem to have this issue
Sometimes I see a different set of hoppers, and my SR gets set back to 0. Why does that happen?
What you are seeing are “fallback hoppers”. When you enter this mode, you will see a UI notification. It shows up on the “Find Game” screen for War Games. In previous Halo titles, you’re dependent on the servers to get the information you needed for Matchmaing, and if they go down, you can’t play. Fallback hoppers are a new functionality for Halo 4, and they allow people to continue playing Halo 4 when there are server issues.
In order to preserve the integrity of the online experience, there are some limitations to this functionality:
Reduced XP earn rate, counted as offline XP
Players in the fallback hopper cannot play with those that are using the regular server hoppers
Player customization is disabled (no armor, loadouts, emblem)
Since the server isn’t actually available in fallback hopper mode, you’ll be missing functionality that the server provides. This includes:
Double XP tokens
You will automatically be switched to fallback hoppers if you fail to download a necessary file. You’ll remain in fallback hoppers for up to 10 minutes after the servic
now it would be ok if fixed itself after 10 minutes like it states but a day later im still not able to access anything other than forge, war games and campaign. also Ive seen that being banned can also have the same effects but i dont remember seeing a banned message. if anyone could help that would be great. for reference im sr31 i was sr30 when it played up but its saying in the lobby im sr 1.
