i just love the fact that infinity ward and beachhead made millions of dollars with MW3... but yet the prizes for these lone wolf operations are complete **** -_-
honestly, i competed in an operation a few days ago (most confirms in kill confirmed)... once again it was filled with boosters and the first place person recieved a frag grenade key chain thingy... like really?!
if your gonna give out such shitty prizes (such as license plate frames, stickers, water bottles, etc.) then at least give them out to like the top 50, or even everyone who got a gold badge.... you clearly have the money to do so.
then again, infinity ward and beachhead are sellouts, only in it for the money. there were about 6,000 people in that operation. 6,000 x $50 = $300,000 -_-
you make $300,000 from one operation and only the first place guy (who probably boosted with friends) gets a prize... and its a shitty $3 key chain grenade.... smh
dang you guys whine too much. all arguements are valid but dang chill out and nut up. if you were in their position and were working on the website, 5 year old complaints, community complaints about the site, community complaints about spamming, community complaints about clan ops, DLC and even just keeping the site up you would see its not as easy as it sounds. i bet you wouldn't last a week in thier shoes not saying i woul but at least i have some knowledge in some of the fields they do what about you guys? Nothing but whining and moaning over Guns, Gamemodes, Core, Hardcore, Glitchers, Modders, Campers, Elite, MW3, Getting Chocolate Milk but seriously grow some balls and wait like a "dedicated fan" to the franchise instead of whining every single day like BeachHead is your mom, Infinity Ward is your dad, Robert Bowling is your uncle, and Activision is your grandpa lots of work and sweat goes into stuff like the Elite service/website and making MW3 in like what 9 months? can't blame the companies making them only the company forcing them. ever notice CoD comes out every November? Activision pushes them to do so cause thats their only time slot for a CoD game to be released in the franchise. Theres no "Lets release it in 2 years" Activision doesn't care. Anyway back on point, grow some balls and wait. IDGAF if you sa 3 month im a dedicated fan of the CoD Series and i loves all the Studios that made this game i actually had the balls to go and visit BeachHead and TreyArch and Infinity Ward the night before the VGAs. They are hard at work and are trying their best to make you guys happy at least put faith in them if not then i say stop playing the game and sell your copy back to gamestop or bestbuy whatever.
THANK YOU AND GOODBYE
Everyone who bought this game has a right to complain. Doesnt mean anything is going to happen because of it and we have to accept that but really riding the figureative "c*ck" of the company doesnt make your opinion any more high and mighty that any one elses. 3 months is certainly alot longer than I thought it would take them, and in all honesty I dont think it is the fact that its taken this long its that there has been no communication from the Dev's or "Community" people (aka Robert "Trolling").
This company has been on the downward slope for the last few years in my honest opinion. Releasing the same game with some small tweaks (new featurs, game modes, etc) and different map layouts (worse layouts). They did alot to this game to make it "noob friendly" which I think is a crock of sh*t. I mean if you say you are a loyalist of the company/franchise then you wouldnt find all of this acceptable either. If so then you are one weak minded human being and I feel sorry for you.
Hopefully they give us some info or content within the next couple weeks before the new DLC drops for Elite members because if not Ill put this down and go back to playing Ghost Recon to get ready for the new "Future Soldier" title coming out because in reality Im NOT a fan of this franchise Im just playing it to pass time until the new Ghost Recon comes out.
Sorry if you think Im not legit because of the harsh things I have to say about the company and Im talking good about Clancy games. If you dont get it then you have obviously never given Clancy games (Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six, AC) a chance. Activision could learn alot from Ubisoft really.
To update this thread, we've posted a preview of the Clan Operations feature for you here on the forums. We're currently putting all the Clan Operations through extensive testing and while I can't give you a date on when it will be ready, it is getting closer every day.
Until then, please feel free to ask questions in the linked thread so we can better equip you and your clan for launch.
I recently bought a premium elite account, mainly for the extra maps. I held off on preodering because im quite aware that most games/ products that come out need a bit of fine tuning before they are at 100%. Not all problems can be resolved in focus groups and testing within the company. many problems need a fresh eye before they are seen. I too am looking forward to the clan operations very much but i stand by beachheads decision to hold off on releaseing it until it is fully functional. This is my reasoning, if for example they had chosen to release clan operations and they where unstable and filled with crashes and bugs then i would lose intrest in the operations all together and most likely never return to try them even after patches for the product came out.
Problems arise when working on big projects like these and everyone needs to keep in mind what all they have made and released recently. MW3 alone is a huge accomplishment by itself, not to mention the lone wolf operations and every other part of elite that is functional.
As far as complaining about the money you spent, stop acting like you got ripped off. just about every other game that comes with a preorder charges the same amount while only offering something as minor as a extra costume for you character. You have gotten a HUGE value out of your $100 not to mention your limited addition case as well as extra titles, emblems, and founder status for the entire span of ELITE. The only thing you don't have is clan operations which they have done more then enough to make up for. Correct me if im wrong but alot of my friends that have preordered have informed me they have recieved an extra couple months of membership for free due to the fact that some functions arent active.
What more could you ask for? Take a second to sit down and think about how hard it is to make a game. Not just any game but a game as good as MW3. Now take into consideration that COD Elite is the first of it's kind. If you want something completely ground breaking like this to work perfectly without a hitch then get off your ass and start searching for that magic wand.
My point is stop being so ungrateful, Beachhead and Activision are the reason you have something so great to look forward to and all you can do is curse thier name.
no matter how you look at this, from activision, beachhead, gamers, treyarch or IW's point of view . these features should of been ready to use on release day, COD elite beta was running for a VERY VERY long time(over 6 months i think) in terms of how long beta's are usualy open for the public. there should of been alot less problems on release day, they know COD break sales records every year.
the COD elite advertisements said 10 months of monthly DLC for free. clan operation/challanges clan roster, leaderboards and other benefits would be available from the release date of call of duty modern warfare 3. this is what was said to be available the day i purchased Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Hardened edition. which now if i had the choice i would have returned it and got my money back.
With the broken COD elite we had on release day "due to too many people connecting to COD elite" even tho they break sales records every year. they gave us 1 month extra to be given founder status, and 1 month extra added to our subscription to COD elite. they still continue to give us an incomplete service/product. So Activision/BeachHead should FREEZE the experation times on subscriptions until the service is running to the standard we PAID for. Which by the way as a ps3 gamer, i have NOT recieved as my subscription extension as the details still say it expires on 7th november 2012 according to my service listing for COD elite subscription.
As much as i enjoy call of duty games and services, Activision,beachhead and IW have let down the entire COD community with MW3 and COD elite as a whole, plagued with problems from day 1 and now 3 months down the line we still are plagued with problems and features not being available.
activision, beachhead and infinity ward need to work harder as they are obviously not working hard enough.
