For the past several months, the staff members here at HaloCustoms have been hard at work, thinking up new ways to improve our user experience. For some time now, we've noticed the lobby system has needed a little bit of an overhaul, so it gives me great pleasure to finally be able to announce the all-new HaloCustoms Custom Games Experience.
To sign in, just use your HaloCustoms log in information.
With that in mind, we concentrated on really fleshing out what makes HaloCustoms special. Whether you're a new member or a site veteran, you should always be able to find an enjoyable, hand-crafted custom game. It should be convenient to access, quick to use, and integrate seamlessly with the existing Xbox Live framework.
The new HaloCustoms lobby experience is clean and works in real-time. It interfaces directly with your Xbox Live friends list, allowing you to send game invites and messages directly from the website! With Halo 5 releasing in a matter of hours, the new features will go a very long way towards having a great game experience.
In addition to the existing lobby system, we also have a brand-new LFG/LFM (Looking for Game/Looking for More) feature. This will really help Halo fans get strong lobbies going on the fly, without requiring much waiting or planning. Each lobby even has a private chatbox, allowing easy communication in that lobby, without spamming the "global" chatbox.
A big shout out goes to TACTICS and BigStack for devoting their time to help develop this amazing project. Note that this is still in a public beta stage, so please let us know about any bugs, features, ideas, comments, anything that jumps to mind.
See you on the Halo 5: Guardians battlefield!
