Call of Duty Elite Facing Server Issues

November 8, 2011Written by Tony Wibowo

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is arguably the year’s most anticipated game, and is expected to break sales record set by Call of Duty: Black Ops last year. Along with MW3, Activision has introduced Call of Duty Elite, a combination of free and paid stats tracking system, but many who tried to sign up for the service today were greeted with an error. Servers stress from high demand has been blamed for the trouble.

Today, Beachhead Studios’ Chacko Sonny  released a statement regarding the situation on behalf of Activision:

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. We have already registered hundreds of thousands of players and we are working around the clock to increase our capacity as quickly as possible.

Sonny also said that players will not lose any of their stats during the downtime:

Please be assured your gameplay data is safe and that whenever you successfully register for Call of Duty Elite, all of your data will be waiting for you. So enjoy the game, start ranking up and we assure you we are working around the clock to accommodate every player who wants to be a part of Call of Duty Elite as quickly as possible. We will update you frequently to keep you informed.
