Its not that it was abandoned exactly. It was the fact that Gamespy shut down. Halo 1's multiplayer servers were hosted by Gamespy. So when they shut down, they took Halo 1's servers, as well as the multiplayer servers of hundred of other games, with them.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

Well Amazon provided me a disk, and Bungie provided me a patch, but I still can't get the damn game to run on this computer! It plays the brand videos at the start and then crashes.

So. Much. Frustration...

I'm thinking if more people can get the game and get it running, we all could get a server set up with game ranger so we can play multiplayer. I think that'd be pretty cool

Agreed, the only issues being step 1 - getting it running and step 2 - I live in Australia so our server speed for a game would be immediately doomed.

Not that doomed, used to use Teamspeak when I frequented another forum a few years ago. Was always talking to two Australian members every morning -though it was evening for them -. The time difference can be made to work unlike the game.
