I presume if you've got an Xbox One S, you get HDR if you have a compatible TV?


Just to clarify, is there no visual/performance enhancement at all for X1S users on a non-HDR 1080p screen?

Why is it a 73GB update for everyone then? :shifty:

Also, started Halo 3 yesterday. First level, had the game proper hang for both of us playing online (like, the picture froze, but the sound seemed to keep playing, you could just hear PEW PEW PEW, then a good 30+ seconds later it all started playing again).

Glad it didn't kick us both from the game, but that doesn't sound like it's properly fixed yet!

Good Morning MCC Players,
Today we are updating our matchmaking offering to all 14 of the playlists that have previously discussed in posts leading up to the update. These additions to the playlist lineup includes playlists selected by the community including cross game Big Team Battle, Team Action Sack, H3 Lone Wolves, HCE Team Arena, and H3 Team Doubles. Remember, this is the playlist lineup that the community itself helped shape via feedback and surveys.
In addition to adding a few new playlists, we have made significant weighting adjustments to existing playlists based on player feedback and from our MCC Playlist Quick Poll conducted over the past long weekend. All of the details can be found directly below.

Playlists Offering
Big Team Battle (Unranked)
H3 Big Team Battle (Unranked)
Social Slayer (Unranked)
Team Action Sack (Unranked)
H3 Lone Wolves (Unranked)
H4 Team Arena (Unranked)
H3 Team Arena (Ranked)
H2A Team Arena (Ranked)
H2C Team Arena (Ranked)
HCE Team Arena (Unranked)
H3 Team Doubles (Ranked)
H3 Team Hardcore (Ranked)
H2C Team Hardcore (Ranked)
HCE Team Doubles (Ranked)

As previously noted, please keep in mind that the team will be monitoring playlist activity closely and if a playlist(s) fail to sustain a positive matchmaking experience for players, that playlist(s) could end up being moved to "rotational" status rather than a full-time offering. The best thing you can do is vote with your play time! And as always, keep the feedback coming!

Playlist Map and Mode Weighting Changes
H3 Big Team Battle Weighting Adjustments
Removed all Team Sniper game variants
Increased weighting on all Valhalla and Standoff game types.
H2A Team Arena Weighting Adjustments
Reduced weighting for all Stonetown game types
H2C Team Arena (Ranked)
Reduced all Team Sniper game variants
Reduced weighting on all Tombstone, Elongation, Desolation, and Foundation game types
Removed Burial Mounds
HCE Team Doubles (Ranked)
Removed Wizard
Reduced weighting on Rat Race

MCC Quick Poll Results
Last weekend we reached out to players to receive feedback specifically for the Halo 3 Team Arena playlist. Based on the feedback provided from that survey, we have made some significant weighting adjustments to the Halo 3 Team Arena Playlist. This includes reducing how often Objective gametypes are played and increasing the amount that Team Slayer BRs appears as a gametype. As well, there were clear choices of what maps and modes within them that players wanted to play. Our weightings have been adjusted to reflect the votes players have made on what ya'll want to play in this playlist! Here is some data and results from the playlist.

Key Takeaways for Maps and Modes
BR Team Slayer appears to be the favorite mode across maps.
King of the Hill is the second most preferred game mode and preferred maps include Construct, Guardian, and The Pit.
CTF is most preferred on Heretic, Narrows and The Pit and comes in at third most preferred game mode
Oddball is fourth and mostly enjoyed on Guardian and Blackout, and slightly liked on Heretic.
Team Snipers is fifth and liked most on Narrows, Snowbound, Blackout, and Construct
Assault was universally the least selected game mode across maps..

Most Liked Maps Across Modes
The Pit, Narrows, Guardian, and Heretic

Least Liked Map Across Modes
Isolation, Assembly, Ghost Town, Snowbound

Has there been any mention of the audio log issues in ODST? Noticed the other day that whenever you go back into the city map the first audio log you find will be the first audio log ever, so you'd have to collect every single one in one sitting without entering any missions. Or is that just how it is? I seem to recall a similar issue with the original version too.

Patch out now, including Match Composer - curate what game types you want to be cued for, which game, which type of match the amount of players etc :

Today we're excited to add some new features and additional improvements to Halo: The Master Chief Collection via a new build update. This month's new features include the Match Composer for Social Matchmaking, expanded Controller Customization Options, Timer options for Halo: Combat Evolved multiplayer, and a player name color toggle for both Halo 2 Classic and Halo: CE. In addition, we have added the US West data center to our global dedicated server pools available for MCC Matchmaking. And finally, on top of all of these new features, we have plenty of additional bug fixes to further improve your MCC experience. Read on for the full details and a few other noteworthy items related to MCC!

NOTE: This update may not load automatically, so please check your 'Update' section if you don't see the changes described below.

MATCH COMPOSER
This new feature, which was first revealed in the October Update blog, is now ready for prime time thanks to ongoing playtesting and feedback via several Insider Flights over the past few weeks. We've copied over some of the initial information shared last month to help explain this new feature but over the course of flighting a few things have changed. See below for the latest and greatest specifics.

WHAT IS THE MATCH COMPOSER?
With five different multiplayer games in MCC, it’s very challenging to offer enough playlists to meet the wants and needs of so many different styles of play. To accommodate every gametype and mode for each title would require dozens of individual playlists – something that just isn’t practical in a world where we want to ensure players can successfully find matches and maintain a positive overall matchmaking experience.

To better support the broad diversity of game types available within MCC, the team has built a new social Matchmaking option that allows players to essentially “build their own playlist” by picking the games and modes you enjoy the most. This system, often referred to in the community as “mixtape matchmaking”, has been one of MCC's most requested features and the team is excited to bring this to the game today.

The Match Composer allows you to pick the game size, game(s), and gametype(s) you want to play and matches you into social games with other players who’ve chosen the same selections. The more options you select, the more possible games and gametypes you can match into.

If you only want to play Halo 3, 2v2 Slayer you can select those options and search only for that. An important caveat to this flexibility is that there is no guarantee that you’ll quickly find a match (or if you’ll even find a match at all) when restricting your choices to more niche options. The more you limit and refine your search criteria, the more you shrink the pool of potential players to match. This is something the team will be watching closely and we’re very eager to get player feedback on how everything works and how it holds up under different populations and regional usage.

Wit this update, Match Composer will appear as the top most option in the Multiplayer Settings. With this feature’s addition, we will be retiring Social Matchmaking playlists under the “Find Game” option. This new feature will allow for quick matches similar to previous playlists through the use of presets and by customizing your own play experience.

HOW DO I USE THE MATCH COMPOSER?
The Match Composer lets you choose from pre-set options or supports a “Custom” option where you can define your Social Matchmaking preferences by making a series of selections. The Match Composer will then search and match you with other players who have chosen the same selections. From MCC’s Multiplayer Menu, select “Match Composer” to get started.

Image

Match Composer includes four options to custom tailor your Social Matchmaking experience:

Game Preset
Game Size
Game(s) Included
Game Categories Included
GAME PRESET OPTIONS
These are pre-configured selections that allow players to jump into right matches quickly. The presets can be customized after being selected if there are specific offerings within them that you'd like to remove. Here is a list of the Match Composer presets currently available:

Slayer – this includes all Halo Games with only the Team Slayer Game Type and is 4v4.
Objective – this includes all Halo games with Capture the Flag, Assault, and King of the Hill and is 4v4.
Big Team Battle – this includes all Halo games with Team Slayer, Capture the Flag, Assault, King of the Hill, and Action Sack Variants and is 8v8.
SWAT – this includes H2C, H2A, H3, and H4 with only the Team SWAT Game Type and is 4v4.
Snipers – this includes all Halo games with Team Snipers Game Type and is 4v4.
Infection – this includes H2A, H3, and H4 with only the Infection Game Types and is a 12 player FFA.
Custom – this is used if you want to build the match experience you would like to play.
Any – this includes all Halo games with any gametype supported for 4v4.

SUPPORTED MATCH OPTIONS
Here's a handy matrix of supported games/modes/player-counts that are currently supported with the Match Composer:

Image

The team is always listening to player feedback and will be monitoring things closely now that Match Composer is out in the wild. Our goal is to offer the most currently-popular modes while not making the system overly complex or splitting the population up so much that it degrades the matchmaking experience. Please leave feedback on the Match Composer in the MCC forum here on Halo Waypoint and let us know how it’s working for you, if there are options that should be included, and any other input you have to help the team further improve this feature.

ADDITIONAL OPTIONS & DEDICATED SERVERS

Two new customization options have been added to MCC, both of which can be found under the “Gameplay” portion of the “Options & Career: Settings” menu.

Enemy Player Name Color: This option allows you to change the color of enemy player names in Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2 Classic between Red or the Legacy Blue.
Multiplayer Game Timer: An entirely new feature added to Halo: Combat Evolved, which can be toggled to show you “Time Remaining,” “Time Elapsed,” or “None” to preserve the legacy experience.
US West Server: This Azure datacenter location now supports Halo: The Master Chief Collection matchmaking!
Team Hardcore Game/Map Variants: With Halo 2 Classic Team Hardcore and Halo 3 Team Hardcore being removed from competitive Matchmaking, we have placed all of the map and game variants in the “Official HCS” account file share. To access this file share to download the maps and gametypes, open your roster by pressing “X”, select your own gamertag, then select the option “Find Player”. From here enter the gamertag “Official HCS” and select “File Share”. You will be able to download each of the maps and modes for each of the maps and game types to play the Team Hardcore settings in Custom games.

PLAYLIST UPDATES

We have collected a lot of feedback on rotational playlists and the demand for permanent offerings for SWAT, Snipers, Infection, and Grifball has been very vocal. We are happy to announce that with today’s update these are all being added to the Match Composer Social Matchmaking with no current plans to rotate them out. However, Halo 3: Lone Wolves is moving out of social and will find its new home in the competitive ranked playlists.

The following changes are included with today's update:

Halo 3 Social Offerings

2v2: Added Sandbox variants Tundra and Vessel to 2v2
4v4: Added Orbital, High Ground, Epilogue, Valhalla, Last Resort, Cold Storage, Pantheon, Tundra, and Wastelands
8v8: Added sandbox variants Utah mambo, Vindictive, Wastelands, and Workplace Bravo
8v8 Action Sack: Added in Big Team Battle Heavies variants for Avalanche, Sandtrap, Standoff, and Valhalla

COMPETITIVE RANKED PLAYLIST UPDATES

Changes will be happening to our Ranked Playlists as we have been monitoring the health of them for a while and will be moving some of them out based on low engagement. The playlists below will be ranked after the update and live under the “Competitive” options in the Multiplayer Menu. We also have updated maps in the Halo 3 Team Arena playlist to include some fan favorites that have been requested.

Halo CE Team Doubles
Halo 2 Classic Team Arena
Halo 2 Anniversary Team Arena
Halo 3 Team Arena
Halo 3 Hardcore Team Doubles
Halo 3 Lone Wolves
Halo 3 Team Arena

Added Orbital, High Ground, Epilogue, Cold Storage, Pantheon, Tundra, and Wastelands.
Removed Last Resort

Interested in the Modern Aiming feature should improve things.

Playing this with little one on normal difficulty, she's quite good on the warthog turret.

The Master Chief Collection Is What Happens When A Studio Doesn’t Give Up On A Game


https://kotaku.com/the-master-chief-collection-is-what-happens-when-a-stud-1831925439

Master Chief Collection is a far better game than when it launched. In the four years since it debuted it’s become one of the better examples of how it’s never too late to get things right. Microsoft could have simply abandoned it in favor of people playing the old games through the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility program but didn’t. The collection is now arguably worth owning an Xbox One for, assuming you like Halo of course, and is now the basis for a series of big Halo 3 throwback tournaments taking place throughout 2019. It was a long time coming.


Spurred on by the launch of the Xbox One X, 343 Industries announced in the fall of 2017 that it was going to really clean house on Master Chief Collection’s multiplayer architecture, helped in part by an extensive beta program starting in the beginning of 2018. In effect, rather than putting more bandaids on the game, the studio was going to rebuild its online portion through big updates to the game’s underlying engine. It was finally implemented in the game in the summer of 2018 in a whopping 73 GB update after months of quiet, unrushed play testing. It worked. No more dropped matches. No more obnoxious queue times. No more weird breakdowns or glitches when trying to go from a multiplayer match in one Halo to a matchmaking in a playlist in another.

343 Industries will announce “some exciting Halo: The Master Chief Collection news” during the Halo Championship Series Invitational at SXSW 2019 from March 15 to 17, the company teased.

“If you are not able to make it [to the event itself], be sure to tune in to Mixer and Twitch each day at 12:00 p.m. CT,” reads a Halo Waypoint news post. “Not only will you be treated to amazing matches and gameplay, but we’ve also got some exciting Master Chief Collection news to reveal during the show.”

It'd be great if it was coming to PC AND Reach was being added.
