    Activision 'making good headway' on CoD Elite repairs

    http://www.computerandvideogames.com...elite-repairs/


    Activision's Call of Duty: Elite service suffered launch-day outages yesterday as millions scrambled to register.

    Activision said yesterday that it simply didn't anticipate the numbers that strangled the system, but today says improvements have been made.

    "We are being challenged by a response beyond any of our expectations on day one," Activision Digital's vice president Jamie Berger told Kotaku today.

    "But we're making good headway," he went on to assure gamers, saying that Activision has managed to increase the number of gamers that are able to sign up for the service simultaneously.

    "This is like that terrible birthing pains any new online service goes through," he adds.

    It's not surprising really. Addressing investors and analysts following the publisher's impressive third quarter financial results last night, Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg said "the record number of pre-orders from Modern Warfare 3 drove the largest day one shipments in our history and in the industry's history".

    Simply put, the servers are going to be fairly busy.

    So how is Elite? Is it worth it. I haven't got my hands on the game yet because Newegg is taking too damn long. Just wondering because if I enjoy MW3 online I'm going to possibly get it if it's worth it.

    Why do they always never expect it?

    I didnt realise it was an app you have to launch via xmb. Should've made it integrated into the game somehow

    It seemed pretty cool if youre into that kinda stuff. Extra stats, tact stuff - map overlays and $#@!

    I'm tempted to get elite just for the fact that it works out cheaper in total, for map packs, rather than buying them whenever they're released. Like a season pass I guess

    Anyone care to share their thoughts on it?

    So did I but they unlinked everything. Even my facebook account and PS3 account. I had to link it all again and now it won't let me link my 360. PS3 works fine but I don't have Elite for that. FAIL

    Is there going to be 9 DLC packs for elite? I read new game modes and maps.

    How does the founder status thing work? I have the hardened edition and it came with a code but when you go to the site it gives you, nothing works.

    Can someone help me out with this one?

    You have to wait until the 13th to enter your founder code at the Elite website.

    There's a seperate founder code? Isn't it tied with the code you enter for Elite?

    edit:

    Here is what it says on the Founder site:

    Become a Founder

    Redeem your Founder status:

    1. Sign-Up for a Call of Duty ELITE account
    2. Upgrade to a PREMIUM membership by November 13th, 2011
    3. Play MW3 multiplayer. You will automatically become a Founder.


    Please allow up to 48 hours for your Founders status to appear in MW3 and ELITE. Founder status will be indicated by a green skull next to your name on your Career page on ELITE.

    If you have a MW3 Hardened Edition you can use the code included on the Founder card to add Founder benefits to your Premium account on the site after 11/13/11

    exactly, they hype up a game and have a good run on making millions off the others they pre-orders alone should have rang bells.

    Seems to be working better for me now. I was able to link it today to my account and play about with some of the stuff but some of it is still not working correctly. Look forward to seeing it up and fully running correctly.
