Is it Worth Playing Crossplay on Warzone 2.0?

We are familiar with the console vs PC war and how it has existed since the dawn. This is a chance to turn over a new leaf and just enjoy the game rather than landing blows at people just because they prefer a different platform than you.

While we can’t bring everyone to the same page, we surely can bring everyone to the same lobby with Warzone 2.0’s crossplay feature. Hey! if you don’t like it, you can always turn it off, unless you are on PC because in that case, you are stuck. Tough luck.
