Elite is out of the frying pan and into the fire

Posted on November 8, 2011 - 11:20am by Sean Hinz

When we casually mentioned that the Elite service was live a little early yesterday, we didn't imagine that it would be the calm before a storm. With Modern Warfare 3 officially available to the masses, its premium Elite service is struggling to keep up. Beachhead Studio's Head, Chacko Sonny explains their current predicament:

"Registration requests for our new live service Call of Duty Elite are exceeding even our most optimistic expectations, which is creating a bottleneck and some players have not been able to register.If you encounter this issue, please check back here or follow us at @CallofDutyElite on Twitter for live status updates."

Activision and Beachhead are of course working "around the clock" to make sure everyone has the best experience possible, but it seems strange to me that they were not prepared. I always figured pre-orders would be a pretty good indication of who would be interested in Elite and Activision has access to those numbers. Maybe there marketing push for Elite went too well, but in the end, this will be resolved and we will all move on to killing noobs.

Thanks g1 They Call me The Fizz for the tip!
