I only play Halo: Reach on XBL and although there have been many threads about Halo: Reach on this subforum, my problem is unique.
I have NO connection problems with XBL itself. My problem is NOT that I am being disconnected from the service or unable to connect.
My problem started happening only 3 or so days ago, and I suspect that it is tied to the most recent required update.
My problem is this: whenever I join up with ANYBODY in Halo: Reach Multiplayer Matchmaking, there is a greater than %50 chance that at some point during the "finding a game/ selecting a gametype/ downloading the map" sequence that I will be suddenly disconnected from my party AND others in the game. If I am disconnected while a full game is still being chosen, then I go back to searching for a game screen. If it happens during the selecting or downloading the map/gametype, then I will be the only one in the game and it will, of course, end. In both instances I am separated from my party.
Now, this is important...this disconnected from party/game thing ONLY HAPPENS when I am trying to game with 1 or more other persons on XBL (I game by myself, so no other local players on my 360). In the last three or so days, I have NEVER had this issue happen to me while gaming by myself.
Again, at no point during any of this am I being disconnected from XBL itself - just my party.
Please help. Mods, move to appropriate forum if you need to.
