Call of Duty Elite getting choked by mass registrations

0

It seems that not even the Daemon-fueled Nightmare Engines employed by evil publisher Activision are strong enough to cope with the demand for Call of Duty Elite. Modern Warfare 3's subscription-based social network is apparently stuck in a "bottleneck" right now as servers strain to cope with a ludicrous influx of new members.

"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," confessed developer Beachhead in an official post. "We have already registered hundreds of thousands of players and we are working around the clock to increase our capacity as quickly as possible.

"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."

Wow. I expected it to be popular, but so popular that it breaks. People are just that crazy about their COD, I guess. As much as I like the series, I'd certainly not want to spend more money on a social network themed around it, but apparently a lot of people do. Good for them!
