It is amazing to me that a great product can be produced and that the creators don't have a clue what the end user want's from it . The lack of understanding was demonstrated through there unpreparedness at elite launch. I understand the intial launch of an online service is always going to be like that. However, the demand becomes stable after a couple of weeks. I can deal with the fact that they underestimated the demand for elite. Which is associated with the biggest entertainment franchise of all time and they should have over estimated. The fact that they still don't " get it" is shown because they continue to roll out stuff that no one cares about while things we wanted... and paid for are still not available. I can not except that clans and clan competions which are the most wanted parts of elite are the last to be dealt with .No one really cares about watching noob players compete on a terribly covered tv competion no matter how "famous" they are.
How could they ever guess that we would want to make clans with our friends and compete with other people.......... I mean grouping with friends online has never been a trend before,,, being competitive and wining prizes,,,,no one wants that,,,,,so go ahead and put that off until everyone gets competely turned off by the service...
This forum is amazingly exactly how i've been feeling. I don't want to start a hate thing either but come on. We PAID for this. Sure they gave us a free month but that month has come and gone. It's not even so much the lack of things that were promised because I know/hope they are giving it 110% to get it running but the lack of updates are insulting. I to thought for sure we'd have an update on dec 13th, then the 14th then the 15th and so on. It's the 18th and still no update. I watch twitter and the the elite system has pretty much died. I believe that twitter is the only real way to get a hold of people in charge. I constantly tweet robert bowling and cod elite looking for answers. I love call of duty, I am a huge fan of Elite, I loved the beta, but I need the following.
1. Another free month because honestly what exactly have i gotten that the free members haven't? I suppose i got to play in some operations(when they're not canceled)
2. An ETA on clan operations because I usually hate new maps and bought this service for the clans and clan operations and thats it.
3. Last of all I would just like to be treated like a paying customer. Okay your service has sucked so far, some people still have faith in it so keep us updated. DAILY!
I guess my fear is that they don't give us updates because we would riot if we knew how long it was going to take for things to get running. Best case is that they are so close that they just want to wait till its there but i'm leaning more and more to believing my fear. I tell people DO NOT BUY ELITE UNTIL CLAN OPERATIONS ARE WORKING BECAUSE THE ONLY REASON WE ALL BOUGHT IT WAS FOR FOUNDER STATUS AND NOW YOU WONT EVEN GET THAT. and you know that this DLC is going to be their out for not having the clan stuff.
1. There have been none.
2. Only by recruiting other paid members.
3. There's no way of anyone, paid or otherwise, levelling up the clan without recruiting paid members.
4. Coming soon, apparently. Still.
5. Don't use it.
6. Founder status simply means you're one of us poor suckers who paid for it thinking we were getting what was advertised.
7. This one I don't know about. I heard it was but it's Elite we're talking about so I think it's pretty safe to say it's not.
With the way things are at the moment my advice is to NOT buy Elite. Mayve if/when they decide we deserve what we paid for, then you should. But right now, it's just a big waste of money, unless you want the assurance of the map packs. I assume they can get that part right, at least.
Still nothing, I watch the twitter, I watch the facebook and still nothing, all I see are useless post about the Elite TV they have and Fridaynight fights. I dont care about that, I have a clan anxious to play Clan Operations, over 70 members in my clan, and we have nothing for them
all I can tell them is to wait.
This is bullshit, no update, the service status shows green, how is it green when the service is not fully operational??????
As a clan leader, I encourage other clan leaders, and members to keep stressing on these forums our anxiousness for Clan Operations. Maybe, they will her our voice and do something.
I hate being a clan whose Rank was only gained by recruiting a large scale of members, what about the smaller clans who are waiting and can only rank up higher with these Challenges, it's not fair to them as well!!!
To my Fellow Call of Duty Elite Gamers
I have to ask this of all my fellow Call of Duty Elite gamers, let's make our voices heard
We anxiously await the Call of Duty Clan Operation Challenges!
Let them know
as well as in these Call of Duty forums.
I'm not demanding anything, I understand, that a service to which was not ready for the amount of subscribers takes time to get FULLY OPERATIONAL
but I believe as paid subscribers we are at least rightfully owed an update of status.
Yes im getting sick of this.
We demand updates now.
Im a clan leader to (Criminal Minds, 32 members) And im sick of looking for founders to boost up the clan. All i can tell to my members its the only way to boost up the clan.
I also got a nice notification that: they understand my enthousiasm to look for members but that i have to limit the recruiting on the forums/operations and so.
What the hell, just give me the options to do it the way its supposed to be. Or at least a update. Otherwise i dont see any other options then to look for founders...
Hey my clan is not looking to get our xp by recruiting. We prefer to prove it by head shots and killstreaks. But unfortunately, we cannot until we who are founders get what we paid for. I could have used that $50 some odd dollars for a game or bills. Yes I agree COD needs to step up and provide services most of us have been paying for now for months. I mean we all love the franchise or wouldn't be on here, but please give your fans and the people whos money is paying your bills and making you so much money. But, once again my clan ain't recruiting founders we are wanting to prove our clan's power by outplaying the competition. But, we do want all of us as a ga,IMF community and the ones of us who have paid the money we did to start receiving what all of us have paid for. HOORAH!!!!!
