Population counter

Ever since that update where the reach servers were down for a few days my Population counter has not been working. I am curious if this happened to anyone else. Why would 343 go back to a 6 year old game and remove the population counter and do quite literally nothing else? If 343 did in fact do this on purpose.

its not working for me too, its a shame…

Probably more people on Reach than Halo 5 wouldn’t surprise me at all.
