Even in the US the times on friday are crap. 2-5pm on a Friday? Apparently they cater to the unemployed and non-student based population. If you are not in the US that must be even more aggravating. But even for people in the U.S. why would they do 2-5 pm on Friday and then 6-9pm on Saturday? Elite get your head out of your butt, obviously it would make more sense to have the clan op later on a Friday and then do it earlier on a Saturday. Just stupid.

We in the UK would rather have afternoons than 2am - 5am, which is a time we should be asleep and the same repetitive game modes on the same repetitive days is really waning my patience. Farkin hell I prefer the old method where it was mega scrambled at least then it was interesting unlike this droll op's porridge they are spoon-feeding us.
The only thing that should be in my hand at 4am is cough mixture if I can't sleep.
Step 1. Split the Op's up to worldwide timezone matches, whereby if you have already played that one (maybe 5hrs earlier), you cannot play on another time zone also.
Step 2. Randomise the game modes more.
Step 3. Less Core delivered in there.
Step 4. Keep us more informed and updated with the actual idea's or programming, you may have for Op's. It feels like we are all talking to a brick wall when we complain. The CS and PR is dire! (do video updates on YT not on this site, the site is complex and annoying, my mum could do better) hell mine is way better. (GaminGuys dot the usual)
Please guys LISTEN! Hell fly me and some of my guys over to discuss what we need, we would gladly come to help you guys get it right for gamers.

I understand that it would be two different games however your clan could only enlist in ONE either the core or the hardcore version then it would be better. The clan would have more say in how they play the game. As only the leader can enlist you, there would no conflict of interest.
thanks for the comment anyway.

I agree with
* more diverse game modes.
* better timing for all countries
* more HC modes and core modes together
* activision catering for the USA all the time.
* choice of modes/hc or core modes too (gets confusing, people are generally simpe minded, how would the leaderboards work? etc etc...
(if keep the timed ops)
* make an international timezone
* everyone is awake at elapse hours.
* you could make different ops for different countries/conteinants/timezones??
*make running ops weekly. sun to sun 8pm finish on sundays each week. have a different game type every day of the week but goes to the same leaderboard.
one column caps, another kills, another confirms etc
add them up and bingo an overall score.
* make new rewards same xp gets boring. what about double weapon xp for the top 10% or a free token?
Overall criticism for elite:
* service is inadequate for a multi-billion dollar company.
* lacks creativity and programming skills
* some site logisitics is absolute horrible. (eg0 you can't switch pages on pc for members on connect pages...) I can even fix that and i am only a key stage 3 programmer.
*Timed ops would never work, who was in that meeting? your being lazy that is what it is. Lazy programming for a game that has loyal fans who will buy it cuz, its like any other series/franchise. (I always buy helloween movies even tho i know the next one will be lesser than the first, i always buy a new cannibal corpse album even tho i know their new ones are going to suck. etc etc)
I think everyone will agree that elite is a good idea as a concept but it doesn't work if you are not going to listen to the mass.
As, activision, good times and bad times like the song states from Led Zeppelin. You have been through both and this good time wont last forever unless you change your ways. Create new innovative ideas and create something that the mass has been calling for since cod4.
Yes many suggestions can't be done by human technology as it isn't well enough advanced yet. However, some can be worked at.
So instead of counting your green bills with that dude franklin on and writing down your margins on a scoreboard, maybe spend that well earned cash on dedi servers for each country/region/tz or fix the atrocious lag and hit detection...or mb stop hackers hacking into your simple programming code lines that even a baby could change is they were taught the ways.
Man, I am suprise i have to tell you this.
I enjoy this game, but if it goes on. I ant buying it, then again...what is my 80quid do anything to your profits? then again, rosa parks changed separation in america and nightingale created the general pharmacy which turned into the nhs 90 yrs later.
It only takes one man to create a spark that can change the whole universe in time, space and dimension (fourth doctor quote)
