Since the latest update I have been able to find games a lot more and easier and thats not just by myself, even with my friends on all playlists. Last night I was up all night with a bud playing big team battle until about 4 in the morning. It was so much fun reliving the memories of the older halos. Reminded me of the good times.
The game is not perfect yet, still need to fix the unbalanced teams and a few others but all the fixes will comes in time. I have faith in 343.
