Founder Status FAQ - Please Read Before Posting!
Ok so alot of threads have popped up all day about the Founder status for the Elite Service. So I think its a good idea to have all the information in one thread so nobody needs to make a new one. Deal?
Right first off this is from callofduty.com/support
Anybody who purchases Elite Premium before the 13th will automatically become a Founder. Anybody after the 13th who wishes to become a Founder will have to buy the Hardened Edition of the game.
You do NOT have to input any codes into callofduty.com to recive Founder status unless as stated you purchase the Hardened Edition after the 13th. This means that little Founder card and its code is NOT needed if you sign up for Elite Premium before the 13th, its useless.
So just buy Elite from the Marketplace or redeem your Elite Token from your Hardened Edition (Found on the back of the little booklet) sit pretty and wait for your Founder status to be added.
Hope this clears up some confussion members are having with Founder Status and the Hardened Edtions Founder Code.
Exclusives/Extras you get for becoming a "Founder"
Unique founder weapon camo.
Exclusive founder in-game titles.
Exclusive founder Call Of Duty Elite profile skin.
Access to the private "Founder" group.
Special founder clan XP boost.
Special founder operations & events.
Exclusive founder prizes & experiences.
Taken from the "Founder" booklet found in the Hardened Edition.
Founders get 28 online vault slots vs the regular 8, not sure of this is for having Founder Status or Elite Premium. Also Elite Premium members can upload upto 1 minute of gameplay (From Theater)
Updates regarding Elite:
ELITE has been shut down temporarily by Beachhead Studios who cited such a high demand for the service that they couldn't keep up. Below is statement from Beachhead.
Ok so it looks like the Elite serivce is starting to come back online (Slowly but surely) Ive had multiple confirmations (Including myself) that the Elite service can be accessed from the Xbox360 App but the website www.callofduty.com/elite still seems to be down. For the service being down Sledgehammer have extended the Founder sign ups untill the end of the month and have also promised Elite Premium members an extra month Elite on top of there subscription for the down time.
Sledgehammer have also started rolling out the Elite & Founder Titles & Emblems, the Exclusive founder weapon camo Winter & 2x XP for 2 hours (To Elite Premium members & Founders only obviously) You can check if your Elite Premium and a Founder by checking to see if you have the Red (Elite Premium and Green (Founder) skulls next to your GT/PSN ID on your Elite carrer summary.
Remember to get these you need to confirm your Email when you sign upto Elite and link your Gamertag/PSN ID.
Here are the Elite & Founder Titles & Emblems. Founder are the top ones.
Ok so this will probally be the last update regarding Elite & Founder for this thread. Founder status has been given out now to most people who signed up within the first week of the games release, indicated by a green skull next to your Gamertag/PSN ID (I know people are having problems though) Elite is up and running on both Console App and on callofduty.com (Still slow for some but better than not having it)
If you still havn't recived your Founder please wait untill the end of the month as Sledgehammer apparantly extended Founder status qualification untill the end of the month, maybe you shall recive it then. If not then go flood there support page with complaints/questions you want the answers for.
Aparantly the last update wasn't the last update >.<
So Sledgehammer have been having ongoing problems with Elite & Founder and have extended (Again) the Founder sign up till the 13th of December. Remember if you have the Hardened Edition you can still claim Founder Status after the 13th with your Founder Status card found in your Hardened Edition.
