It's just a guess but in one of the Elite for BO2 videos they mentioned that MW3 clans would get to keep their clantags. I assumed that they would just keep them in reserve for them but maybe they are getting the added benefit of getting them gold early.
Someone else replied a similar thread I made on another forum. If you use the same clan tag you have on ELITE it will turn gold on BO2. Problem is I can't use the same clan tag because there is a ( ! ) in our clan tag. BO does not handle special characters in clan tags like MW3 does. So does that mean we have to change our clan tag completely to make this work? If so, this really would suck.
OK, this is very simple..
Your Clan must be at level 10 to get the gold tags..
I have been wondering this myself as we have had about 30 members online since midnight last night, playing, and we still dont have gold tags.
So, log into elite and go to your clan, and look at the level.
For example, my clan all had stats, but the clan level was still at 1, and said we have 0 of 100 xp needed to get to level 2
So, the issue is with elite(as always)...Some how elite is not picking up the data from bops2...so, im sure just give it time and it will just appear, but yea, you need to go into elite and look at your clan level.
Hope this helps
the only way to level up a clan is through clan challenges and clan ops, there hasnt been any for black ops 2
as for the gold clan tag
Will my current Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Elite clan get to keep all of our clan level unlocked rewards?
Yes, you will keep your Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Elite clan level unlocked rewards as you contribute towards your Call of Duty: Black Ops II clan level.
just a guess lol
