Discuss the PRO's and CON's of COD Elite here:
THE SHORT VERSION:
Premium offers DLC for £32 a year, it devides the community into two groups but ensures that both groups have the same content to play with(so no more, "you do not have this map" crap)
almost everything else offered is superfluous and may actually be detrimental to the game, I have hope for the official leagues being a good thing and the video content of top teams being fun and informative.
Worth £32 on top of the £40 to get it on Steam? you decide.
points 1-10 basically say that you get DLC, previously you would pay £12 per expo, now you pay £32 for the year.
11: DAILY COMPETITIVE PROGRAM GUIDE
Participate in a year-round competition calendar where all skill
levels play for prizes & digital trophies.
Prized Tactical Operations with Custom In-Game Playlist & Modes
Prized Clan Operations
First four points I have no idea what to expect, seems like anything "Prized" has to be at LAN or the prize is non-financial, ie game content.
Official Leagues on the other hand? could be awesome and a great way to play against similarly skilled opponents, matches that come down to the wire are always the most fun to play.
12: EXCLUSIVE CLAN BENEFITS FOR CALL OF DUTY® ELITE MEMBERS
Level Up Your Clan through Clan Operations
Unlock Clan Level Benefits
Unique In-Game GOLD Clan Tag
Exclusive In-Game Clan Player Cards & Emblems
so we have character levels, gun levels and now clan levels/benefits? I dont see how they can make it a fun thing rather than a chore or feeling like we have to level to get something that should have come as standard.
last two points get a big fat /careface
13. DYNAMIC EXPERT STRATEGIES
Access Hours of Pro Video Guides for Every Weapon & Map
Professional Tactics & Help
Share Expert Community Playbooks & Strategies for Every Map & Mode
the word potential comes to mind, they could really produce a strategic bible that would be a foundation for clans to start on, but i doubt it will be much more than beginner guides and "obvious places to camp" ...
14. JOIN PREMIUM GROUPS
What does this mean??
seems like an unnecessary splitting of the community.
15. EARLY ACCESS
Be on the front lines to test new Call of Duty® Elite features.
pay to play a day early.
16. PREMIUM THEATER
Go big with your video uploads, with 8x more HD video capacity.
4x User Storage of Match Replays & 2x Video Export Length
currently we seem to have more than enough in BO. not that i use it.
17. ELITE TV
Access exclusive episodic video entertainment made by top talent for Call of Duty® players.
This may be both interesting and good for tactics.

Exclusive Competitions & Prizes
all crap, founder private group? why? limit yourself even more? this is elitist junk.
again with "exclusive competitions and prizes" they're not gonna give stuff away without it being in LAN, if they do, cheaters will ruin it.
