Halo 4 Multiplayer

When playing Multiplayer online - I am playing as a SR-1 when I am really a 42, can't use my custom load-outs, can'tsee Challenges etc.. When reviewing commendations - says "Cannot earn commendations.  The Halo 4 server is unavailable or you chose to remain an offline Spartan" (not the issue)  This happened before but was fixed.  This has been going on for at least 12-18 hours - what gives??  Is it something I did or are others having issues?

Hi SimonSezDie1, I've not experienced myself but over at Halo.Xbox.com, people have said that this has happened to them as well. Sometimes the servers can experience stress and errors start to occur. If you've not cheated in any way, it's an issue server side and all I can suggest is you wait it out.  I can imagine that this is a pain but there's nothing to suggest as far as I know. It's probably just 'one of those days'. I hope that this helps.

in a addition to Invoked by Red, also if you are away from the xbox (not playing) you will disconnect from the halo 4 servers.

This is happening to me as well now. Can anyone confirm that waiting it out will actually fix the problem? I thought if maybe I leveled up it would get out of that state, but after a few matches it just stopped giving me experience. It's become difficult to play like this, especially now that I'm not even gaining experience. If this doesn't get fixed soon, I'm going to just start playing something else until there's a server-side patch or something.

Just a follow up. For me, everything went back to normal (with all experience gained during that time lost), after about 24 hours after I noticed the issue.

I started playing halo 4 when i was home for University break. I leveled up to 21 beat the first 3 levels on Legendary solo and played Spartan ops.

I have a Xbox usb memory stick that i use to take my profile to school to play on my friend's xbox.

The problem is i can't connect to 343 servers ....

The strange thing is that my friend can on his profile, so it's not an internet issue because are on the same network.

It fails load my service record, so I appear as the default spartan but level 21.

All my progression through the campaign saved. So I've been continuing through solo legendary. So my saved data is present.

Strangely the game starts to allow me to proceed to matchmaking and spartan ops, but then changes its mind and decides to tell me I cant connect to servers.

It changes from showing thousands online to less than 300.

LAME :(

Hey everyone,
 

There is a procedure that is posted in the Halo Waypoint forums for people with the server issue that you are having:
 

"When in this mode, it’s a good idea to relaunch the game on a regular basis, so you can reenter the regular hoppers as soon as they’re available."
 

This may be something to try. Also, when there is an issue connecting to a server, it never hurts to do a network hardware restart.
