Still worth it for the DLC only. Callofduty.com never had great functionality in the years leading up to elite(not able to connect/login/browse very often, and I told all people who would listen not to expect Elite to work at all. But by it for the maps, the rest is freebies. And For the record, yes its disgusting they tried to sell this for everything it is not. Basically the fact they put any work into this at all is a nice bonus. I like your leaderboard ideas but arent there already live leaderboards during Ops? Personally I dont think anyone should have to enroll in clan challenges. Just have them always on like regular in game challenges.

I don't think the DLC was worth it at all. I do like a couple of the last batch of maps, but most of the DLC was for Face-Off or Spec Ops (both of which I played only once). Besides, they took half off on two or three of the DLC after they opened them up, didn't they?

I agree... I think the DLC has been a let down too..
I don't reckon it will be included in Elite next time around...
It doesn't even seem worthwhile trying to find a game with the DLC on due to lack of games available... Particularly on the more specific game modes...
They might work well in the US but you can forget it in a lot of other countries...
I still like the concept of Elite but it has been a huge let down...
I'm unlikely to buy it again... Unless it DOES?! come bundled with the special Black Ops 2 editions...

Thank you for the feedback, I know some customers haven't been too happy with Elite but we are working on improving it; it’s been 10 months and updates have been coming out; as you said Clan Challenges are a good idea, they might still have some problems as they still are in beta.
We're waiting on an upcoming announcement for Elite integration with Black Ops 2 that is anticipated to have vast improvement!
We thank you for sticking around and being a valuable member of the community and for being patient!
Keep checking in with us for further updates on Call of Duty Elite.

As for Clan Leaderboards, our clan uses these to mark the pre-event numbers as we all know the Event Leaderboard is not very up-to-date during the Event.
Elite had more going out than coming in. Like Pavlov's dogs, we are ready for event postings with lead time, variety in matches under Clan Ops, and accurate rewarding of Clan XP. The Clan Challenges brought more to the fight, as all Elite members joined in the fray for Clan XP play. Our non-Premium members look forward to the challenges, even taking the lead to organize a group to tackle the accolades.
Got the DLC. Great maps, and glad I didn't have to pay for them after my playing buds pound me into group submission.

Never again, that's all I can say. The elite services was a let down. Does anyone still go in and check their numbers out? Aren't some of them wrong? The saddest thing is, I don't think anyone from the development side is the least bit embarrassed by this product.
Not to mention prepaying for the DLC only to find out that a lot of it was stuff I would never have purchased, was pretty much the nail in the "never again" coffin.
Hey, maybe BOII will have good DLC and I will buy whatever they are selling, but chances are that I will want to pass on at least one of the map packs. The point is, I am in control of what I spend my $$ on. If they don't make a decent attempt at putting out a product, then I don't have to buy it.

The concept for ELITE is good.
In practice = some problems.
Idea: maybe ELITE Membership via Founder or Premium could include some customizable downloadable skins like RESISTANCE3 skins and even face masks. Or maybe a 1 off only class where you get a 3 weapon Attachments class instead of 2.
I think making the player experience more personable via Founder & Premium has potential. Yes, keep clan ops and challenges.

New Elite design is out. I really hope this is not Elite V2. If this is it, then none of our suggestions go through.
In Clan HQ, I see no option to delete Clan messages, I see no option to message Clan members, I see no option for a co-leader for starters.
I really like the new search functionality, 10 times better that the old one.
I really dislike the new Clan HQ hiding the Clan background.
Navigation Menus on top , are nice. Will continue in a couple of days after Elite settles with the new design/layout.
