Basically they want to do Elite again, because they were "creative" and thinking it up in the first place.

It's all a PR stunt in my opinion. The fact that ELITE effectively takes people's money in return for a mystery jar of content is a sketchy one. I'm sure some people are happy to buy this, but during these times you need to know what you're getting for your money.

Also Elite isn't fully-functioning just yet. I need clan operations!

If they could charge less and make it seem like a fantastic investment opportunity, then I'm sure it would be more widely accepted.

Sadly, it was a huge success.
When the game was launched everybody seemed to be elite.

Only idiots bought elite. I knew that the content for MW3 wasn't gonna be there. IW never comes through with their promises. Never buying a COD ever again, its been freakin boring since after COD4. The maps and gameplay, even the gun tweaks have all took a turn for the worst.

Most people bought it to get a nice discount on MW3 DLC. What's so "sad" about this? It's called being smart.

7 million signed up for Elite. 1.5M paid for subscriptions. I wonder what percentage of the total that was? 20 million total?
