Q: What is happening now that the Call of Duty®: Ghosts Early Clan Registration has ended?

 

 

A:  If you moved your Call of Duty® Elite Clan over to a Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan, we are setting up your Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan and pre-populating your Clan Members for use in the game and Call of Duty® app.  You will be able to manage your Clan within Call of Duty®: Ghosts with the launch of the Call of Duty® app on November 5th, 2013.  If you have not moved your Call of Duty® Elite Clan over, you will be able to set up a Clan with the launch of the Call of Duty® app on November 5th, 2013.

 

 

Q: Can I still log in to the Call of Duty® website and access my Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan from now until launch?

Q: Why is there a new Clan system for Call of Duty®: Ghosts?

 

 

A: Clans in Call of Duty®: Ghosts will include deeper in-game integration and more features, from in-game Clan Management and Clan–specific playlists to the all-new Call of Duty® Clan Wars game mode available in the new Call of Duty® app. This year also introduces cross-platform Clans, allowing players to create and/or join a single Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan across the following platforms: including Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation®3, PlayStation®4 and Windows PC.

 

 

Q: Won’t my current Call of Duty® Elite Clan work with Call of Duty®: Ghosts?

Q: What are the benefits of being in a Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan?

 

 

A: By being in a Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan, players can look forward to:

• Playing in Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan vs Clan playlists.

• An entirely new Clan leveling system that offers Clan Members more opportunities to earn Clan XP.

• Clan management functionality, both in-game and in the new Call of Duty® app.

• Notifying Clan Members that you’re heading into a match with the touch of a button via the Call of Duty® app’s Clan Chat and Rally-Up features.

 

 

Q: When Call of Duty®: Ghosts launches, will the process of creating, managing, and joining a Clan be the same as it was during the Call of Duty®: Ghosts Early Registration?

CLANS AND CALL OF DUTY® CLAN WARS-SPECIFIC QUESTIONS

 

 

Q: How do I level-up my Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan?

 

 

A: In Call of Duty®: Ghosts, all multiplayer matches played with at least one other Clan Member will earn Clan XP and unlock Clan rewards.

 

 

Q: I do not want to use the Call of Duty® app, but I’m worried that players who do will have an unfair advantage in Call of Duty®: Ghosts multiplayer with the in-game Call of Duty® Clan Wars rewards.

 

 

A: No, the Call of Duty® app will not provide any unfair gameplay advantage in Call of Duty®: Ghosts multiplayer.

 

 

Q: What is Call of Duty® Clan Wars?

 

 

A: Call of Duty® Clan Wars is a brand new game mode in the Call of Duty® app that ties directly to Call of Duty®: Ghosts multiplayer.  It offers a deeper Clans experience by enlisting players into a larger conflict where any Clan Member, regardless of skill level, can contribute to the Call of Duty® Clan War simply by participating, and rewards them with cool items, both in the app and in Call of Duty®: Ghosts multiplayer.

 

 

Q: How does Call of Duty® Clan Wars work?

 

 

A: In Call of Duty® Clan Wars, your Clan is pitted against seven other evenly matched Clans to battle for possession of key locations on the Call of Duty® app’s clan wars map over a period of time.

 

 

The locations on the Call of Duty® app’s clan wars map are tied to specific multiplayer modes in Call of Duty®: Ghosts.  For example, when you’re playing in a clan war, the Aqueduct location on the Call of Duty® app’s clan wars map is tied to the Team Deathmatch (TDM) mode in Call of Duty®: Ghosts multiplayer, and your Clan will battle against seven other Clans to secure and hold the Aqueduct location while the other Clans try and take it away from you. Each time your Clan wins a Call of Duty®: Ghosts multiplayer match in TDM, your Clan gets a “Capture Point” for the Aqueduct location. There will be multiple locations on the Call of Duty® app’s clan wars map, tied to other multiplayer game modes in Call of Duty®: Ghosts, and your Clan gets more Capture Points for securing either the Aqueduct or other locations and holding them down over time. The Clan with the most Capture Points at the end of the period wins the clan war.

 

 

Clans that participate in Call of Duty® Clan Wars have the opportunity earn cool rewards both in the Call of Duty® app and in-game as well. Rewards are distributed based on how your Clan ranked in the overall clan war. Of the seven Clans that participate in a clan war, the top three ranking Clans will earn rewards, with the winning Clan receiving the most.

 

 

Clan Members can review their standings at any point during a clan war using the Call of Duty® app, and strategize their next multiplayer play session – should your Clan hold down the location you’ve already captured, or move on to try and capture other locations for even more points.
