Activision says that Modern Warfare 3's multiplayer launch has been smooth. However, the debut of social network Call Of Duty Elite has been a little shaky. The publisher admitted that Elite's servers have been overwhelmed by players.
"At launch, our registration and login systems were crushed by gamers trying to enter the Elite site at the same time," reads a notice on the Elite website. "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."
Upon logging into Elite, you should be able to see your player card and stats. If data from your recent matches or career summary is missing, don't fret. Activision says that all of your stats are "safely stored" and will be displayed properly when the tech issues have been solved.
Players who have already signed up for Elite's premium service - Founders - will see their memberships extended by 30 days. Furthermore, if you're still considering the subscription, note that you now have until the end of the month to be eligible for Founder status, which gives you an exclusive in-game emblem among other benefits. If you spring for the subscription during November, you'll be awarded the extra 30 days of access as well.
Modern Warfare 3 launched worldwide on November 8th.
