Clan ops will be released first they are giving a release date within a week or two. After that they will be releasing Clan Enhancements which will make it easier for clans to operated like making captains and what not to recruit. Finally after that Clan Challenges will be released.

Basically what you're saying is, we might get challenges in another 3 months like 50% of the rest of the elite app that was promised on day one. TBD--to be developed yet.
Thanks for the info, but I am curious what your source is if you don't mind me asking? Sorry, I mean no disrespect, just curious as i've been trying to keep up to date on all this, but with the refusal of them to answer my PM's--despite being very civil in them--I can't get a peep out of anyone. I'm getting so fed up with all of it.

Beachhead has stated that their main priority is Clan Ops. They will then push Clan Enhancements and Challenges. Enhancements doesn't sound like it will be too much trouble. Challenges will not be too bad either.
The problem with Clan Ops was that the system has to be able to recognize the top 6 clan members that are premiums, take their score and combine it. It sounds easy, but it's actually pretty difficult, especially with clans of 100 people. Clan Challenges will be much easier since they will have a system of how to get it to work down already. It will just be implementing it.

If elite truly was integrated into the game I could understand the delay in getting everything to work, but it's far from that. It simply pulls stats off a server. Lone wolf operations included--pull selected stat from server, sort in descending order. Clan ops would obviously require more work but since it's the same basic premise, they are either extremely over-complicating things or just incompetent. I could do all this single-handedly in a spreadsheet in one day, obviously without all the bells and whistles but im just trying to get my point across. These delays are just unacceptable for a franchise of this size and networth. If you can't meet a deadline--FIND MORE HELP!!!

True, they can't be on a tight buget.... Not after um what 1.5m x £34.99 = £34,990,000
They also want to do Elite 2.0 by november so good idea. Employ more programmers as thats what you seem to lack big time......

Look at Activision's website. They have openings for people wanting to work on Elite. In fact, they have a position for 5 pm to 2 am and also one open for the Graveyard shift. In other words, they're working around the clock to get this going.

haha I thought the same thing. I am an accountant and use excel a lot... with Vlookup to match clans to players one can sort out the top 6 from a list in an hour. Getting that info to the leaderboards should be something simple for anyone who knows coding.

clan challenges where out yesterday early morning before the dlc drop, i got to enlist my clan in it, but it went away, so i talked to activision and even they knew that it was posted and didnt know why it was taken off, i guess it is out for crap box right now, but my guess there will be another update and then clan challenegs will be out, i mean your only gonna get like 400 xp max, not that great esp for a higher level clan
