Call of Duty Elite had a dodgy start back in November, 2011. Throughout the month the service was completely unreliable for Modern Warfare 3 players. The launch troubles didn’t sit well with early adopters, acknowledges Activision.
Speaking to MCV, Activision’s product director, Noah Heller, admitted “we still have to prove ourselves.”
He continued, “there’s a lot of people we pissed off all the way back to November, and we have to show them we are not going to let that happen again. But we have started fulfilling our promises and people are starting to get it is real value for money.”
Since the rough start, the number of promised DLC drops have increased from 20 to 24, the service have been more stable, and clan operations and prize events have kicked in. However, PC players still don’t have the option to use Elite free or paid.
