Call of Duty: Elite subscribers to get extra month free
In light of rocky launch for stat-tracking social network, Activision automatically extending paying members' subscription terms by 30 days.
Call of Duty: Elite, Activision's social network built around tracking statistics of the publisher's annual military shooter franchise, launched alongside Modern Warfare 3 on Tuesday. Unfortunately, the service has encountered a number of issues and continues to be down more often than not, but Activision is not turning a blind eye to the problem.
The Elite website's status page was updated today with a note that all premium members will receive a 30 days extension on their year subscription in recompense for the rocky start. This follows days of downtime and a delay of the PC version of the service.
The official update assures users that all of their match stats are being stored and actual game performance is not being affected by the issues surrounding Elite. The problems are isolated to the use of the front end of the stat-tracking service, and more servers are being added to increase capacity. Until that time, Activision will be limiting access to the service via the Web and console applications, with priority going to paid members.
