Okay so I went on Elite and enlisted in the Vengeful Beast Competiton, for which the prize was an iPad, and I checked about 2-3 hours before the competition just to make sure it was still a go ... So I played TDM for 3 hours straight, trying to win an iPad, (I checked my Recent Matches; I had over 400 kills in those 3 hours) ... Then when I came back on Elite, the Operation wasn't even there, and these was no announcement of it ... Not on Twitter, Facebook, or the actual Elite site ... Finally I came on this Forum to find out that they cancelled it last minute ... WTF. At least notify people 1 day before you cancel something, I cancelled plans to compete in this operation, and they decide to cancel it 5 minutes before, so that no one even notices ..... THREE STRAIGHT HOURS! See, normally, I'm not one of those people that complain about this game, or Elite, cause' I think that both are awesome, but this was a really bad experience and I'm extremely pissed off right now.
Beachhead had to cancel this event due to they are working on fixing a issue with the competitions. This maintence should be ending real soon.
FYI: Check the "Announcment" at the top of the ELITE FORUM.
