Halo Master Chief Collection matchmaking fix due November 20

The highly anticipated Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be updated a matchmaking fix on November 20.

The next Halo: The Master Chief Collection patch is due in the afternoon of November 20 and will address a number of issues with the UI, campaign, Halo, Halo 2 and Halo 2: Anniversary as well as applying matchmaking fixes.

Here's what it'll fix in terms of matchmaking:

- Addressed a number of issues that resulted in extended matchmaking times and low matchmaking success rates.
- Made a number of updates to how matchmaking progress is communicated to the player. With this update, you’ll see better, more frequent and more informative status updates throughout the matchmaking flow – so “Players Found” for example, will be displayed to let players know where they are in the matchmaking process instead of simply wondering if it’s going to connect.

The improved matchmaking flow is as follows:
– Searching
– Searching for more players
– Players found
– Finalizing matchmaking process
– Connecting session

- Made an update to ensure that parties stick together when returning from the post-game carnage report
- Prevented the ability for players “kick” other players from matchmaking games
- Made an update to ensure that the Roster correctly displays the “searching” UI rather than “My Game Session” while searching for players
- Removed the possibility to boost ranking through a custom games exploit
- Made an update to ensure that players cannot get stuck in the matchmaking screen during map voting
- Made an update to ensure that the “Connecting to your game” message no longer incorrectly displays in the lower right of the screen during gameplay
- Made an update to the “team creation” phase that allows players to be grouped by team
- Made an update to prevent players from seeing the “connection failed” dialogue if disconnected during the map voting screen
- Improved roster / matchmaking lobby stability
- Made improvements to the accuracy and stability of the “Game Session Details” UI
- Improved version compatibility

Seems like even patched the multiplayer is still "broken" in this game (Phrasing is the choice of frustrated players in the threads for it that I've read, not mine). 343 are not doing a good job reassuring people they are worthy successors to Bungie for this franchise if they can't even get some ports of the Bungie games right.
