Call of Duty


 

Tired of actually playing the games you paid your hard-earned money for? A new Call of Duty: WWII service has you covered with an option for a professional gamer to play the game for you.

The service outsourcing blog Bidvine now has a page dedicated to hiring out skilled Call of Duty players to help others boost their ranking (via PC Games Insider). After handing over your log-in information, a professional Call of Duty player can win matches under your username when you can’t be asked. What is more, the hired players can be requested to focus on specific objectives, like improving rank, unlocking specific content, and improving kill-death ratio. If this isn’t weird enough, the service offers the additional option for professionals to come to the user’s home. To hire a professional, users need only describe what they require and make their bids, with service rates costing a minimum of about $20 (£15) an hour. Think of it as streamlined, gaming-based prostitution.

“We’ve already had a number of sign ups and we’re looking forward to seeing how many more we get,” Bidvine co-founder Russ Morgan claimed. “The rise in professional gaming has been meteoric over the last few years, and there are thousands of people who can help out the more time-strapped gamers among us.”

Instead of having other people win your games for you, Call of Duty players can get paid to play by signing up to be one of the service’s professionals, but skill must be proven before you can take part. Apart from the ludicrously warped ethics of the thing, privacy is another clear concern with this service. The hirable professionals have to provide an ID for the sake of security, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t still a massive privacy risk for both parties.

If neither the implicit lack of integrity nor the privacy issue are enough to turn you off, potential subscribers should also know that you need a U.K. post code to sign up, as Bidvine is a U.K.-based company. Our solution to getting around this? Just don’t do it.

In other- less sickening- Call of Duty: WWII news, the game’s first seasonal event has been announced, preceded by several days of double XP, in what appears to not be a mistake this time.

Nick didn’t start gaming until mid-2006. Once his parents finally allowed a console into the house, it was all uphill from there. Starting out with a PS2, he grew an affinity for Sony consoles and moved on to the PS3, and now the PS4. He keeps his gaming palette wide, but, gun to his head, he’d have to say shooters are his genre of choice. Find him on Twitter @idole808

You can now pay someone else to play Call of Duty for you

If you're a Call of Duty: WWII player with no time and even less shame, Bidvine has a service for you.
