Leaving Matchmaking (right before match initiates)

In matchmaking the slots get filled but before it starts the match it says “leaving matchmaking” and goes back to searching. This issue happened a couple of months ago, was resolved, but appears to be happening again as of today.

From the Halo Support site:

For the first three issues below: if you encounter them, please submit a ticket with info including a timestamp for when the issue happened, the game mode, and the map. This will help us investigate them further:

  • Rarely, a player can be disconnected from matchmaking after loading the map but before the gameplay starts. This also results in a short temporary matchmaking ban. - Rarely, players can be “dropped” mid-match and are stuck on a loading screen until the match ends. - Players can be kicked from matchmaking with a “Leaving…” notification as soon as the lobby is full.
