Resolutions: Party Up

Are you a doer, a seeker, or a player on a mission?

Time to Party Up and Party On

 

Welcome to another Friday in January and, thusly, another Call of Duty® Resolution. As we’re now firmly entrenched in 2018, some of your friends may have fallen off the Resolution wagon. But not you - you’re a doer, a seeker, a player on a mission. You’re on the Call of Duty Resolution fast track to stats supremacy and MP glory. And, to that end, we proudly present…

 

Resolution the Second: Spend More Time with Friends

While it’s important to be comfortable by yourself and there’s no shame in having some “me time,” playing Call of Duty: WWII, it’s equally crucial to be sociable with the people that matter in your gaming life: squad mates. Without them, where would you be? Did you know many players roll solo and solo only? It’s a crying shame. Imagine the things that could be done, the bridges built, the Hardpoints locked-down, the dominations of Domination dominated.

 

Just think of all those controller mashing moments that could’ve been avoided if you were in a proper squad. Wouldn’t it be nice if your squad was made up of an all-star team of lead-slinging victory aficionados you could talk to and coordinate with?

 

Cue the Party Up function. Not sure how? All you have to do is tab over to the Social section of the MP main menu. Under ‘Friends’ you’ll see a list of your buddies that are online. Pick the pals most worthy of your alliance and start sending out the invites. Select each friend and hit ‘Invite Player’.

 

Once you’re in a party together, you’ll appear side by side in the pre-match lobby, looking like a  squad. Where you decide to deal your damage is up to you, but it’d be worth your while to focus on objective-based modes like Hardpoint, Search and Destroy, Dom and War. You’d be surprised how much more effective a coordinated attack is versus just running around, blasting away willy-nilly.

 

And the benefits don’t stop there. Trying to be a better listener this year? Dominating with your friends demands communication. If you’re aiming to reduce stress, chances are you’re going to die a lot less with a squad of friends watching your back. Less deaths = less stress.

 

For those of you who may not be connected with anyone, no worries. Time to meet new people. Head to HQ and find some new partners in crime to connect with. Send out some friend requests and get in a match together. Chances are they’ll become staples of your Call of Duty life. After all, friends who slay together, stay together.

  

That’s it for this week’s Resolution. Go jump in the game, send out some party invites, and unleash some coordinated thunder. Your next Resolution won’t come until January 26th, as we’re taking a break from the self-improvement for something special. What is it? We’ll have to resist telling you right now, but stay tuned to your inbox for a communication from Call of Duty. Something big is coming…
