    I haven't played this game in months(multiplayer) as I only get a chance at weekends and the internet is really bad where I live so I let the xbox download all last night got up today all set to play and another 12GB download, f ck sake like. It will take me all weekend to download that so it won't be until next weekend before I get to play again.

    This generation xbox have update files as large as the original game files.

    Would be the same on PC or PS4 these days too. It sucks for folks living in the countryide or outside of the cities in general, I'm well familiar with it myself having gamed on 1mb and then 3mb connection for years (Hell I even played on 56k at one stage). I'm on 15mb now and it feels like the bees knees even though it's pretty rubbish by modern standards. It's only going to get worse from here on out too as games get bigger and bigger, sad reality is a lot of this country is still about ten years behind in term of internet speeds.

    If you have the option to leave your console set to instant on, it'll download these updates even when you're not using the console. Also , halo 5 releases free dlc on almost a regular monthly schedule, you you were probably unfortunate enough to have to pull a few down at once.

    Thanks lads. I left it on downloading all night and got up this morning and was able to get a few games in. I'm not very good still trying to learn the maps and stuff.

    The Memories of Reach DLC went live yesterday, there's infection mode and a new Arena map plus loads of the reach armour in REQ packs. I saw someone wearing the Emile one and I was tempted to buy the REQ bundle, only tempted though :P

    Did it work since? Might just have been an issue with Live?

    got it sorted, but spent the weekend without access to live and the wife and kids were away :mad::(

    Got through a bunch of the spartan ops though, so not all bad

    had 6 dollars in my US account and in a moment of madness decided to buy a few silver req packs.

    I might just have been lucky, but I got a corpsemaker (gravity hammer variant) and Banshee certification. It also seemed to give a lot more consumable req cards than a silver you buy with 5000 RP.

    I dont know what tweaks they've made to matchmaking, but the game is buttery smooth to me now. Its by far my 'go-to' shooter now, I've over 100 hours logged in arena / warzone, which is a lot for me.

    This is all I play now to be honest.
    I love Warzone and Arena is always great to mix it up.

    add me should you wish, Im usually on a bit in the evenings.

    Was asking the same om reddit and apparently they're trying out two month seasons now. Kind of annoying tbh, always look forward to the placement matches each month.

    I was going to complain about how I preferred monthly seasons but I just reached platinum level so the change is alright by me.

    The placement matches made no sense to me, win 9 games straight with a positive K/D - looks like its bronze 2 for you Sonny Jim.

    Rockets playlist how I've missed thee.

    Think I jinxed this, have only gotten one game all night.

    Am I missing something, or why when I try to play Big Team Battle it is playing the same maps over and over? Generic, bland industrial type maps with almost no vehicles. I'm really eager to get games of the open maps, similar to those in Halo 4 and Reach - with tanks/mantis/banshee, but I simply can't get any. Same with Team Slayer - it's recycling the same maps over and over and mostly the same gamemode as well, can't remember the name but a king of the hill type.

    I'm trying to get back into Guardians after hating it at launch and shelving it after a week, but I'm still finding it just....not really Halo.
