The point that pr guy misses is: give us what we were promised was working six months ago. It's SIX MONTHS after launch and the service still doesn't work properly in many cases, still doesn't have all the promised features, and generally hasn't lived up to what they said it would be. Talk all you want about "the next game" and how it will be even better, your word means jack squat to a lot of your customer base right now, and we could care less about a couple extra maps.
The product wasn't properly thought out. The maps coming out early fragments the player base into three separate groups when matchmaking in the actual game, making the connection problems already present even worse and more of a headache for the core game. It was obviously sold WAY before it was finished, with a team that wasn't near ready to do their job. If it wasn't for the DLC being included you wouldn't even have a service, no one would want it. Remember THAT for the next game, Elite has 1.5 million premium members in spite of it's features.
I like the part where it says it's always adding new game modes but it doesnt say it has to remove other game modes to accommodate the new
The only way they can make this up for me is to add clan leagues and knockout clan tournaments that are based on wether you win the game and not on getting the most kills etc
Clan ops isn't what I thought it would be, I was under the impression pre sale that clan ops would be clan v clan style I was gutted lol
A. It was announced prior to the release of the game that the Clan thing would work exactly like the solo ops that were BETA tested last summer. Anyone who bought it expecting something different should have done their homework before buying it.
B. Is the PR guy serious with the whole "we didn't expect 7m people" thing? Once again, looking back at the BETA from the summer it was wildly popular for anyone who knew about it. It was not hard to conceive that the free portion of the service would be gobbled up by the masses.
C. I completely agree with the comment regarding the fragmentation of the player base with how this was released. When only 1/4 of your buddies have it, it is a rare occasion when we can play the ELITE only game modes and expecting the new maps to show up in the normal lobbies when "one of those guys" is not with you and then make it past the vote is a pipe dream. Complete failure here.
D. I honestly think the most avid users of the Eltie services are those that use it cheat by glitching out the system.
Today, Call of Duty Elite is fully operational and developer Beachhead is working relentlessly to make it up to its fans.
Yesterday it still wasn't, Today it still isn't, the question is when will it be fully operational lol.
3 months of adding new features that elite six months ago already should of had lol.
i could say stop lying to us the fans and tell the truth, but thats not me lol.
But i have to say this is painly so lol. I knew they weren't prepared lol.
to me we only got one true feature which seems not to be working again which is clan ops, so wheres the rest lol.
then we play against boring randoms that don't have nothing to do with clan ops or a clan period lol
make a separate playlist only for clans and privatise it only for clan users and members lol
oh and clan challenges still not functional lol. this is crazy lol.
4 extra maps not impressed i'll still play them though lol.
i still think we deserve better sorry lol.
I havent seen any updates on NoobTube...They always have those contest to send in your funny or whatever clips but I haven't seen an episode yet. They say they're releasing all this new content as a "Sorry"...they advertised all those things before they released the stupid thing. I love how they try to make themselves look good by doing this...as if they were doing us, the customers, a favor! that is just simply outrageous and unacceptable. How can someone run a business this way? Trully amazing.
