    HungryNic42I am scared to play this game online for that reason. If someone ends up in a modded lobby without knowing will the game be removed? Might be safe just to avoid it all together shame I never played much of the multiplayer.

    WARNING!!

    PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO PLAY MULTIPLAYER MATCHES ON CALL OF DUTY 5: WORLD AT WAR!

    Call Of Duty: World At War has been infected with Modders and Hackers. Modders and Hackers have recently been taking control of the Multiplayer Game Modes, and “Online” Zombie Game Modes on the game. Whilst this may sound un-important to you, they are a big threat in this, and they are the main source as to why, not many people are playing Call Of Duty: WAW, or even any other Call Of Duty Multiplayer games these days!

    Among all of the solutions that have been posted for this achievement, none of them explains about the “Domination” Boosting method that me and other players have used to help us build up towards this achievement.

    This solution will explain about the Domination Boosting Method, what you need to do, and the rules that apply towards doing this. I must warn you that this guide won’t be short. So with this in mind, I will place this solution under Spoilers, to ease the congestion.

    Before you start reading this guide. The approximate amount of time you will need to in order to reach 10th Prestige is 250+ Hours. This would roughly be 12 Days game time!

    Note: If are playing the game on the beginning Prestige level, you will have to reach approximately Level 14 if you want to be a leader for the Game Lobbies. Domination is originally locked on the beginning Prestige Level, until you reach Level 14. If you are not a leader of the Game Lobbies and under Level 14 beginning Prestige, you can still join a group and get into a Domination Match.

    STEP 1: INGREDIENTS

    · Including Yourself: 8 – 12 Players: 12 Players will be beneficial!
    · A Headset: For Chatting & Queries
    · A Dummy Account With Gold Membership (Optional, Great Advantage)
    · Call Of Duty: WAW Map Packs 1 (Optional)
    · Call Of Duty: WAW Map Packs 2 & 3 (Great Advantage)
    · Call Of Duty: WAW Free Makin Day Bonus Map (It’s FREE!!)
    · Dedication/Time
    · A Lot Of Coffee & Refreshments

    All these Ingredients will be explained in the method, apart from the Coffee.

    VIDEO GUIDE

    Credit for the video collection goes to BETOBUSTER. The video provided has my voice recorded into the video with BETOBUSTER providing the video footage. Hope you like it...



    BETOBUSTER has also done a smaller video with a summary of the rules. This was before we did a joint video together...



    METHOD: This will be very long!

    Domination Boosting is basically getting a group of 8 – 12 Players in a Domination Match on Call Of Duty: WAW, focusing on a flag and then taking turns in capturing the flag to build up towards your XP, which will build up towards your levels, which will then build up towards your prestiges, which will then finally build up towards your achievement. This is a famous Boosting Method used in a handful of games, codenamed "Ring Boosting".

    To prestige once, you will need to reach level 65, max out the yellow bar, and then restart from scratch, with a new Prestige Ruby at Level 1. You will need to do this 10 times in order to get this pointless achievement.

    An example in points is shown below…

    1st Prestige = 153,950 Points
    2nd Prestige = 307,900 Points (153,950 x 2)
    5th Prestige = 769,750 Points (153,950 x 5)
    10th Prestige = 1,539,500 Points (10x 153,950)

    STEP 2: ORGANIZING A DOMINATION BOOSTING MATCH

    Organizing everyone is the hardest part in doing the Domination Boosting, because you will either have players which are joining incorrect parties, disconnection, updates, finishing off previous games/sessions, lateness, or no shows. Examples.

    Before you start though, you need to take note of all the multiplayer maps, which are in the game. The Map Packs have recently added additional multiplayer maps, and if players don’t have the Map Packs, they will get kicked from the lobbies and teams when they attempt to join a map, which they don’t have.
    Here are all of the multiplayer maps in Call Of Duty: WAW and which Map Packs they come from…

    We will explain the organisation in 2 ways, 8 Players, and 12 Players. The amount of players that join your sessions makes the organization and searching on this game much different. The tips and planout will mostly be explained in the 8 Player Section, so make sure you read both, before you continue.

    STEP 3a: 8 PLAYERS

    Having 8 Players in your session won’t build up your leveling systems as fast as 12 players, and searching for a match with 8 people is also difficult. However 8 players is better than nothing at all.

    Start off by getting the leader of the session to create a “XBox” Party, letting him or her invite everyone in the session to join the “XBox” Party. Once everyone is in the party, the leader needs to ask everyone if they have any of the maps packs in the game, as if they don’t, it reduces your chance of finding matches on certain maps. Once done, the leader needs to decide which two players are going to be hosting the “Game Lobbies”, and which players are going to be joining. Once decided, the two players who are going to host the Lobbies must create them, and then invite the 3 players, that they are having in their lobbies. Once done, both “Game Lobbies” should have 4 people in total on each side.

    When the two players are ready with their 4 players respectfully, they need to co-ordinate each other to search for a match. When searching, select “Core” and then select “Team Tactical”. Team Tactical is the only method in being able to get a Domination match with 8 players. The drawback though, is that you will have to vote until you have a Domination match on your screen.

    Select Team Tactical, and then hope for a Domination Match. If one of the hosts is searching, and another one decides to search shortly after, you will most likely meet up in the same lobby, giving you 8 players in total.
    If Domination is not the first game mode as you search in the lobby, you have to vote for it, so tell your team to vote until the votes passed. If you get another game mode, other than Domination, you will need to back out and retry.
    To back out, the host must press the cn_B Button and the game will say “Leave With Party?”, now you will see No & Yes, but there is a third option on top of Yes saying “Leave With Party”, select that option and the game should return you to the Lobby Menu with all 4 Players. If it didn’t work you’ll have to either get the teams to re-join your “Game Lobby”, or do a re-invite. The game does have lag issues at certain times, when you do the lobbies, so you may have to do invites on certain occasions. Once everyone’s returned to your lobby, select Team Tactical again and re-try a search for Domination Match.

    You will also have to back out and retry another search if a Random Player who is not in your party joins your Team Tactical Lobby. You must definitely do this, if you have a Modder/Hacker that joins your Lobby.

    If one of you successfully finds a Domination Match in the Team Tactical Lobby, you need to quickly tell the other team that you have found a Domination Match. That teams host must quickly find the game mode their in, or a Random Player could join the lobby. If the other team is taking too long to find it, get one player to send out a Game Invite to everyone via the “XBox” Party.

    You will also need to figure out, if the Domination map you’ve got is a map that everyone can play on, because of Map Packs. If it is, you can keep it, if not, you will have to skip it and retry until you get a Domination Map that everyone can play on.

    Finally, once everything is complete. Allow the game to load your Domination Match. Move onto the “Playing the Game Step"

    STEP 3b: 12 PLAYERS

    12 Players in your session is great, as you can get a lot of XP during a single match, as there will be more of you going for the flag. If you manage to get a 12-player session, consider it as your lucky day!

    The only way, that you can interact with all 12 Players, is by creating 2 “XBox Parties”. Start off by getting the leader of the session to create an “XBox” Party, and letting him or her invite 6 Players of their choice, to join the “XBox” Party. During this stage, the leader must also decide which one of the 6 players they invite, can host the "Game Lobby" for the team of 6.
    Once they are all in, the leader needs to ask everyone if they have any of the maps packs in the game, as if they don’t, it reduces your chance of finding matches on certain maps.
    Next the leader then asks the player who is hosting the "Game Lobby" to invite the 5 players who are in the party to join their lobby and form up a team of 6. Whilst they do that, the "leader" drops out of the "XBox Party", and creates a fresh new party and invite the other 5 players to join the "XBox Party". When everyone arrives in the 2nd "XBox Party", you should then have 6 people in one XBox Party, and 6 people in the other one. Since the leader is in the 2nd XBox Party, they need to make another decision as to who is going to host the other Game Lobby. Once decided, the player invites everyone to their lobby to form up a group of 6.

    When the two parties are ready with their 6 players respectfully, they need to co-ordinate each other to search for a match. To do this easily, the Game Lobby leaders should send a “Chat Invite” to each other, and then tell each other what they’re doing. It is also an idea to do this, if you have players which are late, not ready or no shows.

    When ready, they will both need to select “Core” and then select “Domination”. If one of the hosts is searching, and another one decides to search shortly after, will most likely meet up in the same lobby, giving you 12 players in total. You will both need to figure out if the Domination map you’ve got is a map that everyone can play on, because of Map Packs. If it is you can keep it, if not, you will have to vote it and see if the next map is a map that everyone can play on. If not you will both need to back out and retry the search.

    To back out, the host must press the cn_B Button and the game will say “Leave With Party?”, now you will see No & Yes, but there is a third option on top of Yes saying “Leave With Party”, select that option, and the game should return you to the Lobby Menu with all 6 Players. If it didn’t work, you’ll have to either get the teams to re-join your “Game Lobbies” or do a re-invite. The game does have lag issues at certain times, when you do the lobbies so you may have to do invites on certain occasions. Once everyone’s returned to your lobby, select Domination again and re-try.

    You will also have to back out and retry another search if a Random Player who is not in your party joins your Domination Lobby. You must definitely do this, if you have a Modder/Hacker that joins your Lobby.

    Finally, once everything is complete. Allow the game to load your Domination Match. Move onto the “Playing the Game Step”

    STEP 3c: INFO FOR ORGANIZING BOOSTING MATCHES

    A “Game Lobby” in Call Of Duty: WAW is simply the lobby which is accessed as soon as you select “Multiplayer” in the Main Menu, and “XBox Live”. Your name will appear on the right side of the screen, with your level and prestige you’re on. Here you can invite players in your lobby, and then take them to matches, you wish to play on as a team. No matter which game mode you play, you will always be on the same side. Some game modes though cannot be accessed with more than 1 player e.g: Free For All. A person who is hosting a “Game Lobby” on Call Of Duty: WAW is also the team leader. If he or she leaves, the party gets disbanded.

    So with this in mind, do not get yourselves confused with the “XBox” Party, and the “Game Lobby”. The XBox Party is the Party used via the XBox Dashboard (cn_guide, Party, Create Party etc). And the “Game” Party is accessed by the games Multiplayer, XBox Live Menu.

    Now here are some additional tips for players who are hosting “Game” Lobbies”. We have discovered during our sessions that players who live in the same remote parts of the world are likely to meet up easily, and get a game which is based in their regional part of the world. To put it simply, we suggest that the two players who host the “Game Lobbies”, are roughly from the same part of the world. The reason is because, if you have 1 person from one part of the world searching for your partner who lives in another part of the world it would take ages to connect to each other.
    Another addition to this, is that if both players set their Preferences to Locale Only, when the game searches for a match, the game will automatically search for players who are in your party, and closest towards your region. If it fails, the game will then do a Worldwide Search. This is also another reason why we suggest that 2 people from the same part of the world host sessions. To set Preferences, simply press your cn_X Button in the Lobby Menu, and then select “Locale Only”.

    STEP 4: PLAYING THE GAME

    You finally have your game ready. Great!

    Now I will explain how to do the boosting. Like the organization, we will place this section depending on how many players you have.
    Before you do so. You need to take note of this list of maps, and which map you’re playing on, so that you know which flag you need to go to. Find the map you’re playing on, and then tell everyone that they need to head to that Flag. No one must shoot each other, no one must kill each other, no one must capture any other flags, and no one must capture the flag until everyone is in position. Get everyone to run to the flag and then get everyone in position.
    Here is the list of all the Maps, and which flag you need to go to…

    Airfield - B
    Asylum - B
    Banzai - C
    Battery - C
    Breach - B
    Castle - A
    Cliffside - B
    Corrosion - B
    Courtyard - C
    Dome - B
    Downfall - C
    Hangar - B
    Knee Deep - B
    Makin - B
    Makin Day - B
    Nightfire - A
    Outskirts - A
    Revolution - A
    Roundhouse - A
    Seelow - B
    Station - A
    Sub Pens - B
    Upheaval – B

    STEP 5a: 8 PLAYERS

    Since you are all in an “XBox” Party, you should all be able to talk to each other easily. When your map has loaded, get everyone in the game to head to the flag, which you are taking. When everyone has arrived, you will all need to do a Hit Marker, before you begin.

    Decide between the two teams, which team is going to win the match first. The reason is because the winning team gets a bigger amount of Bonus XP at the end of the match. It’s important that everyone gets a turn at winning and losing to share out the Bonus XP at the end of the match.
    Once you have all decided which team is taking the win, then that’s the team that captures the designated flag first. To capture a flag, get everyone in the team to run in and stand in front of the flag. You will see a bar going left to right. Once it reaches the right side, you will successfully capture that flag. Once the team has captured the flag, everyone then takes a few steps back, and then allow the other team to capture that flag. They will do the same as you. Once captured they must take a few steps back, and then you capture it again. Then, when captured, you step back and allow the other team to re-capture it. That’s it! That’s all you do for the rest of the match. Take turns in capturing the designated flag until the match is completed.

    You will get 15 Points each time you and anyone on your team capture the flag. The more people that capture the flag, the faster the rhythm will go allowing you to pick up more points. At the end of an 8 Player match, it is possible to get over 3000 Points, which does increase you quite a bit.

    12 PLAYERS

    When your map has loaded, get everyone in the game to head to the flag, which you are taking. When everyone has arrived, you will all need to do a Hit Marker, before you begin.

    Decide between the two teams, which team is going to win the match first. The reason is because the winning team gets a bigger amount of Bonus XP at the end of the match. It’s important that everyone gets a turn at winning and losing to share out the Bonus XP at the end of the match.

    You will get 15 Points each time you and anyone on your team capture the flag. The more people that capture the flag, the faster the rhythm will go, allowing you to pick up more points, At the end of a 12 Player match, it is possible to get over 4000 Points, which does increase you a lot!

    STEP 5c: INFO FOR PLAYING A BOOSTING MATCH

    A “Hit Marker” is simply a single Pistol shot to your opponent’s chest. You only need to pick "one" opponent, and you only need to shoot 1 Pistol shot on them. You must not do multiple shots, and obtain a kill. The reason why you need to do a Hit Marker is because if you don’t fire a weapon on any opponent during the match, you won’t get a “Match Bonus” at the end of the match. Match bonuses give you Bonus XP.
    Whilst doing this Hit Marker event, you will find that one or two of you will get shot at by a couple players. This is fine, but if your screen goes red, quickly crouch down to signal the teams that you are weak and you need to restore your health back to normal.
    Ensure that everyone has done a successful Hit Marker in the match, before you start the boosting. Hit Markers can be done at any time, but it's suggested to get them done as soon as possible.

    A Domination Match’s score limit is 200, and since you and the other team are constantly capturing the same flag, the numbers on the bottom left side of the screen go really slow. Make sure that nobody else captures any other flags in the game, otherwise the score will go up, and will reduce your chances of getting a very high amount of points in your match.

    Because a Domination Match has no time limit, it means you can spend as long as you need to, in order to successfully build up your points, using this method. A traditional Domination Boosting Match takes around 25 - 40 Minutes.

    FINAL COMMENTS

    This method for boosting the Prestige Achievements is very long and boring, but it is one of the only beneficial ways of getting the achievement, since the game is infested with Modders/Hackers.

    If you decide to boost using this method, welcome aboard and good luck. You’re going to need it!

    The solution now has a YouTube Video which demonstrates the boosting method in Domination. It is on the PS3 Version, but it is done the same way on the XBox 360.

    I am looking for a better quality video, so hopefully, a better one will be posted shortly!

    jaganshihieiyyhI'd like to point out that the match bonus depends on your level and on the length of the game, and is exactly twice as much for the winners as the losers. However, once the match reaches approximately 20 minutes, it "caps out" and you don't get any additional points for playing longer. Our group has been using a strategy where we end the game prematurely at around the 20 minute mark by having one team capture the other two flags. This gives match bonus more frequently and results in more points overall. The intermission between games is about 1 minute, and your match bonus is usually worth far more than 1 minute's worth of flag captures, except at low levels (under 35 or so). But you spend most of your time at higher levels anyway since it takes so little XP to rank up in the low levels, therefore it is usually beneficial to do this. You might want to consider adopting a similar strategy, but it may not be as efficient in Team Tactical where more time is spent between matches on average.

    BulgyDragonZordAppreciate that, thanks jagan. I didn't know that after 20 minutes, the match bonus caps out. No wonder why I was always getting around 700 Match Bonus for winning, when I was on the winning side. I keep planning on joining one of Dragon's Sessions to see how he actually does the job, but I'm close to completion, so I'll think about how to solve this strategy. Thanks again for that!

    ****WARNING!!!!****

    I am posting this as a warning to anyone going for this achievement. There are quite a few modders currently playing on WaW. Some of these modders when you enter their lobbies have the ability to change your prestige levels. While this might seem cool if they are giving you prestige they can also take it away and actually give you negative prestige. This will essentially make it impossible for you to prestige at all without deleting your save file.

    If you get into any lobbies that seem weird, the host is behaving erratically, or modding the game, exit to the dashboard before the game ends to delete any changes they may have made.

    I hope this saves someone a lot of grief.

    ***ADDITION***
    If anyone has been a victim of this, post the name of the modder on here so other people can look out for them. There tend to be just a handful of these people at any given time.

    As such, I STRONGLY recommend that you get an External Hard Drive to copy your save onto there so that when you get your hacked save deleted, you can try again.

    Ale386Sadly, this happened to me a few hours ago. I was playing zombie mode with my friend to honor the good old times passed in this game while all of a sudden, in the middle of the match, some guy joined in the game and literally, after a few seconds, our ranks reached the 10th prestige, our points went up to the stars and our vision became a photosensitive epilepsy test, since the game was flashing and changing colours at a very fast rate (I can't really see the fun in this, honestly). After that we backed out from the lobby to start a private match. So long with the goal of playing with other people. Also, I wasn't even going for this achievement any time soon, since I wanted to complete the other games in the series saving the grind for the last.

    There are roughly 800 players in Call Of Duty: World At War in 2020. If your question is why, just join a match and you'll probably find out. Most of them are modders saving for a very low percentage of people.

    So, if you're going or planning to boost this achievement, keep in mind that this can happen at any time.

    ASUnknown1I've boosted all the way to 10th over the second half of this year and I am fairly confident that once you are in a Multiplayer (not Zombies) game that is definitely not hosted by a random, hackers will be unable to do anything to your level/achievements if they join. In all the time we were boosting, only once did we have somebody join mid-game and use hacks, but they were going invincible/teleporting around the map rather than doing anything to hack us.

    Honestly, most of the players seem to be legit at this moment, but there are definitely still a good number of hackers hanging around. It's best to be safe and try to keep lobbies locked down at all costs, but as I said, we had many randoms join mid-game and never had anything happen to us. Public Zombies lobbies are a different kettle of fish though; avoid those at all costs as they must be hosted differently somehow, allowing hackers to get away with anything.

    Good luck to anyone trying to get to 10th at this stage!
