Played about 20 Matches today and about 14 of them I was playing on Gold with people who were just so bad. I don't mind if you try your luck at Gold, but a Volus who doenst use Shield Boost,,or a Krogan trying to melee a phantom? Tiny examples, but still it can get really frustrating if you are the only one who can hold his own on Gold. Of course, even I go down sometimes, but some people should just play Silver and bronze. I only play Gold and sometimes Platinum. Just hoping that playing with randoms will be more fun in the future..
I searched for Bronze on my level 1 Turian Ghost and it dropped me into a Gold match already in motion.
Needless to say I sucked hard.
It wasn't my fault though, it was the stupid match search's fault.
I'm well aware of my abilities; I never join a Gold match on purpose until I'm at level 12~15, depending on the class.
Sometimes these people that "don't belong in Gold" really don't belong in Gold, but that's what the search decided to give to them. Many people don't know to look at the upper right corner when in the waiting room to see the difficulty rank.
That said, if I notice I'm with a bunch of players who are less skilled than they should be, I just stop using medi-gels and continue as normal (I have buttloads of everything else, so I don't care if I waste those).
(I made sure to send the leader of the group an apology message explaining I was searching for Bronze and that I hoped I didn't mess things up to badly) --- Have you seen my sisters? Last I saw them they were standing in a row. They are quite lovely.
I can do Bronze & Silver fine. Si I tend to stick with those. I only Rarely play gold, even then only if I have lv3 equipment. I've done Gold less then 10 times. I've only successfully extracted with my Vorcha Soldier. Batarian Sentinel & Solider I can get to about wave 9 or 10 with damn good players. I've yet the plates to try Platinum. --- Loading Signature..........
