Call of Duty: Elite Beta Shuts Down This Evening

Activision has announced that Beachhead Studios is preparing to shut down the Call of Duty: Elite beta at 8PM GMT this evening, and the 'Connect, Compete & Improve' sections have already been closed down in preparation for the impending launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on November 8th.

The official launch of Call of Duty: Elite wil coincide with the release of Modern Warfare 3, and will see the Career Page opened to one and all, meaning Call of Duty: Black Ops players will be able to their Black Ops stats later this week when that section is re-opened.

All beta activity recorded will be carried over to the official launch of Call of Duty: Elite on November 8th, meaning beta participants will be able to pick up where they left off. Beachhead Studios also want to thank everyone for taking part and providing helpful feedback during the beta period.

Had my chance to join the Beta but couldn't be bothered.

I will susbscribe to the free version upon launch anyway for shizz n giggles.

Is it actually any good? Or just a fancy spread sheet of stats?

Still waiting on my bloody prizes I won!!! There system is a huge messed up flaw of issues and regional priorities due to lack of local time zones for competition based allocations.
Other words – US or Bust with most competition starting times. 2am starts on a weekday? No thanks!

@#3 yeah its pretty much what Halo 3 did,but the main attraction for subscribing(at least for me) will be the DLC you get each month,i doubt i will use this web page stats thing...maybe i will upload some youtube vids but that's about it

I was in the beta and didn't see anything that would put it above Black Ops' Combat Record or even BF3s Battlelog...but I'm sure some people will still pay for the premium version...

I've got the hardened edition of Modern Warfare 3 Pre-ordered, only reason being is that you get a year's membership included and all the DLC and the XP boost as I'm not that brilliant at the game. I more than likely will not renew it once the year is up.

To be honest I was in the beta.. It was ok to view where you went wrong in games.. But it probably would have been better if you could watch the game you had played .. I know that would have cost more.. But still

Elite is pretty pointless and I can say with honesty I wont be using it!

How can people still, to this day, think that you need to pay to use the stats feature?

Learn proper use of capital letters, please?
OT: Got the elite beta, must say, I've only used it twice. Being able to link your Youtube account is somewhat nifty though.

@20 Not like COD to do something for free...

Well, I would side with you, if I didn't see on your profile that you've bought every single map pack.

Not too concerned with this. I signed up for the beta and used it a few times but it never really grabbed my attention, the stats were cool and everything but I'm probably not going to use this much or at all unless they put it on the concoles in a halo waypoint kind of way

I didn't care for it much either. Def agree with #24 that it should be on the console. The competition stuff is fun if you have time for it but no average person has time to sit and play for 10+ hours to get ask many kills as they can in hardcore TD to win a TV or whatever, worth a try though.

The only reason I preordered the Hardened Edition on MW3 was for getting Elite at $40 (Hardened Edition $100 and $60 of the being the game). If you buy Elite alone it's $50, I save $10. I could really careless about the website features of Elite, I want all the Map Packs. If you buy all the Map Packs alone you will spend $60. I like saving $20, who wouldn't?
