Only managed to have a couple of matches before they went down, but I noticed one or two players on my friends list are still going.
Seems a lot of people are having trouble downloading it now too (I downloaded the beta in less than 10 minutes) so I assume it's just taking a bit of a beating at the moment.
 
Really enjoying the game though, it's still Halo but it feels very different from Halo 3 thanks to a few subtle changes.  Less powerful melee attacks are very welcome.

When will people start learning to overcompensate with the server magic that seems to buckle whenever there's a big release like this? 
 But if it's really more than 3 million.. damn..
 
Hope you guys get back on soon! I've been playing all weekend and it's worth all the hair pulling, folks!

Hopefully it'll be up later tonight when I can play again.

#20 Posted by jNerd (2011 posts) -

It just booted me for the second time. Why does it make you black?

#21 Edited by dbrinks (1 posts) -

I have not been able to play for about 1 hour.  I got about 5 good games in.  Anyone actually consistently playing that did not get a April 29th key?
 
Sorry,... from bungie below
 
 
We're aware and working to resolve slow matchmaking times and inaccessible playlists. As soon as we're back up and running at full capacity, we'll make some noise.  Stay tuned for more information and thanks for your patience.

Server is unavailable for me right now. Haven't been able to get into a game yet.

#23 Posted by FlipperDesert (2082 posts) -

Well, when I did manage to get in it was pretty fun.

#24 Posted by crunchUK (5963 posts) -
Link to official word on it. Apparently there just isn't enough server to go round...

Thankfully played about 7 games with some friends. Fun game. Just need a 360. We'll see.

#32 Posted by Spam101 (142 posts) -

Can people let me know when it starts working

#33 Posted by nobull6 (238 posts) -

It's hit and miss. I got one game, then the server was down for 10 minutes. Now the server is back up and it's searching for another game - may or may not get in if history is any indication.

#34 Edited by Iireku (147 posts) -

I'm back in, huzzah!!!
 
edit: NVM, It just went from servers down to none of the playlists available.

#35 Posted by Spam101 (142 posts) -
