"Intermittent" Service "Crushed By Gamers"
As we discussed in our Modern Warfare 3 review and buyer's guide, Call Of Duty: Elite is struggling to remain stable as it caves in under the weight of new subscribers. Activision are aware of the growing frustration at the fact that the service is "crushed by gamers trying to enter," and by way of an apology to paid members, have added a free month to their subscriptions immediately and automatically.
They've also rolled out a status portal that shows how well the service is holding up, which is currently "intermittent" at the time of writing. As far as I know, the service is tracking your stats despite these problems, though, and profiles will be updated once Activision has caught up with the server load.
