  1. Cannot join multiplayer games due to privacy setup.


    Hello, I mostly game on pc notably halo wars 2.

    It's been fun, but now I cannot join multiplayer games due to privacy setups. When I access my xbox live account and visit privacy settings I found this.

    You can join multiplayer games
    Decide to allow or block joining multiplayer games on Xbox Live.


    It is stuck on blocked. Hitting allow and submitting only refreshes the game and keeps it on blocked.

    :)
