Call of Duty Elite Non-Founder Customers Restricted Access
Activision and Beachhead Studios have released an email to all Call of Duty Elite founding members updating them on the stat-tracking platform’s status. The email stated that there will be temporarily limiting access to Elite and will be prioritizing access to Founding members, leaving the non-founder customers shut out from Elite on the console application and the website version of Elite for that limited period.
While they try to fix the launch problems since release alongside Modern Warfare 3, they were very apologetic towards the gamers they felt deserved better, the email read:
Simply put, we have not lived up to your – or our – expectations with this launch, and we owe you an apology, and an explanation of how we are fixing this.
As to how things are going on the fixing front, Elite is still far from good shape. In the email they state that even though they have fixed the registration and login systems people still registering has crashed their data servers. To counter the problem they have deployed multiple additional servers and limited access as stated above, in the hope of getting Elite back on track. During the time since launch many people have been worried about what will come of their stats during the downtime, Beachhead Studios and Activision stated:
If you do not see all your recent matches or career summary, don’t worry – your gameplay data for your entire careers in both Black Ops and Modern Warfare 3 are safely stored, and it will all be available to you once these issues are resolved.
As for the time you feel you have lost not being on Elite, let’s not forget the extended 30 day free membership to Call of Duty Elite at no additional cost for all founding members. Unfortunately there is still no exact date to when Elite will be fully operational for all users, only time can tell. If you wish to read the email in full, it can be viewed here.
