You own a Xbox 360, bought MW3 plus a CoD: Elite subscription and downloaded the Elite console app. Then you press start and you get an error message: "This account is not eligible for Call of Duty Elite"
Some say you get this error because the Xbox live account needs to be 18 or older for using COD: Elite. We don't know for sure this is the case here.
We do know that CoD: Elite is suffering from SQL Errors and Data-server downtime because of the huge amounts of players wanting to sign in.
So yes, you can expect errors like not to be able to sign in, temporarily unavailable or blanc screens.
*** 11-10 UPDATE ***
And yes, there seems to be an age restriction for CoD:Elite Premium. We never heard about this till release day! And so far no official answers on the questions: why and what about a refund for these youngsters. Not that they are missing much; CoD: Elite is most of the times inaccessible. But to let them be heard we like place the following on our website.
Another redundant discussion about Call of Duty Elite age limits
Hello, I have seen a plethora of similar discussions rotating around this [off.MW3] forum and the rest of the web as of today, and they have lead me to write this thread. As for me, I am a fifteen year old currently residing in the United States. Regarding to the last sentence, please don't criticize me for being this age.
Earlier today, I had bought a copy of Modern Warfare 3 and a subscription to the Call of Duty Elite service mainly for the free downloadable content. After redeeming the code given to me on the receipt of the purchase, I tried to sign into elite on my Xbox 360. It then gave me a message claiming that I was too young to join Call of Duty Elite. Before that point, I had no knowledge that there was an age limit even after reading several discussions about it.
First of all, what parts of Call of Duty Elite make it unacceptable for a younger person to use? Also, there is no way one can deny that there is a sizeable amount of young people that play Call of Duty. For example, at least half of the teenage boys in my community have one or more Call of Duty games on either a computer, Playstation 3, or Xbox 360.
In addition, there are already people under the age limit who have lied about their age are able to access this service. Why should people like this be able to use it and not people who correctly stated their age?
Is there any other way to sign up to Call of Duty Elite? I do not like to spend fifty dollars and have nothing in return for it. If there is no possibility to gain access to this service, is it possible to get a refund for my money? Please respond with helpful comments instead of insults and slander. And please do not say, "This game is rated M so you should not be on it anyways." It is impossible for one to know how mature someone else is if they do not know them personally.
When we know more,we let you know here.
