Call of Duty Elite’s Premium members will receive an additional 30 days of membership free of charge as Activision tries to compensate for the service’s continuing problems. Modern Warfare 3 has been released for three days now and the Call of Duty Elite servers are still not dealing well with the popularity of the service.
“At launch, our registration and login systems were crushed by gamers trying to enter the Elite site at the same time,” according to an update on the service. “We have now fixed the registration and login systems, but we have found that the greater than expected demand is crashing servers. We’re immediately deploying multiple additional servers to beef up the system. We are also going to temporarily limit access to Elite services on both the console applications and website while we build additional capacity and scale. We’ll look to increase access to greater numbers of users as soon as possible.”
Your statistics continue to be monitored even without COD Elite fully running, and whenever Activision will be able to get everything completely functional, all of the data should be accessible without problem.
As well as offering an additional 30 days free of charge, Activision is in addition extending Premium status eligibility ’till the end of November. Register now and you will get the additional 1month access also.
A fair enough consolation bundle for premium members, however the free users will need to simply wait for Elite to get back online before they are able to start tweaking their loadouts.
