Call of Duty Elite still “challenged” but improving

Thursday, 10th November 2011 00:31 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Activision is busy behind the scenes coping with massive launch demand for its new social network service, Call of Duty: Elite.

“We are being challenged by a response beyond any of our expectations on day one, but we’re making good headway,” Activision’s Jamie Berger told Kotaku.

“This is like that terrible birthing pains any new online service goes through,” Berger continued.

Stop the analogy right now, I want to get off.

Call of Duty Elite launched on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 alongside Modern Warfare 3 this week, but the PC version ahs been delayed.

Thanks, CVG.

    And you guys PAID for it! TROLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!

    At least Battlelog is FREE! Looks like Copy & Paste didn’t work for them when it came to creating this.

    K, my trolling is done.

    1. I’m pretty sure this is regarding the free side of COD:Elite
    2. Battlelog is far from perfect, thanks to Origin and EA.

    Stupid thing still isn’t working…

    It seems like it’s slowly getting more functional each time I check, but that’s not saying much.

    Because it appears as though no-one can login and pay for the premium service, they’re probably losing hundreds of millions from all this down time. Kotick must be furious.

    Good job it’s an extra free service and the game itself is still working properly.

    Right now, the only people who are really losing out are the ones who bought the hardened edition.

    They should get quadruple XP for 2 hours, or something.

    @1 I hate to break it to you, but most of Elite’s functionality is free.

    Mind you, unlike Battlelog, you have to pay a yearly subscription for any of the really good

    Any issues with Battlelog not working properly server side are long fixed, and just as Elite has so aptly proven, pretty much *any* system like this, that ends up being bombarded by an excessive amount of data all at once, is going to creak. There is nothing you can do about it unless you can invent some sort of sparkly magic super server that defies the laws of technology.
