Searches for Silver... Gets put in Wave 6 of a Platinum!

Awesome.

Going for challenges (Commando), searching for a Silver game as a level 13 Turian Havoc, equipped with Disciple, incorrect gear and no consumable equipment.

Didn't even come last either and it was a damn site less annoying than when I searched for a Platinum game the other day, with full equipment on, only to be placed in a Bronze game during Wave 4.

Have you seen my sisters? Last I saw them they were standing in a row. They are quite lovely.

Well you didn't finish last. That's pretty good.

Yeah someone else joined at the same time as me and pretty much got insta-killed every round.

Atleast when that happens you don't lose any important consumables.

Now getting put in a Bronze match after searching for Gold and using Level 3 consumables? That's infuriating.

Yeah, as I mentioned, that happened to me when I was searching for a Plat the other day.

Weird, I search for platinum all the time and have never been put in any difficulty other than platinum.

You shouldn't put on equipment before searching for a game anyways. You could be put in a rio/reaperrs game that already started, a missile glitching game, get waiting for other players glitch, be put in a game that already started where everyone is dead, etc.

Try being thrown into platinum where the other three guys who were playing had already wiped and by the time your game properly loaded you die. That was my introduction to platinum when I was just looking for a bronze game to start on my newly promoted class after they released that DLC. Maybe one day Bioware will finally fix that little snippet (not holding my breath on that one...)

I only did that one time cause I'd joined about 3 Platinum lobbies and been booted fairly quickly each time. No particular reason why, I think I was a lvl 20 Geth Trooper, so it wasn't like I was a lvl 10 Manguard. I just figured I'd put some equipment to try and minimise the chance of being booted.

Obviously sod's law dictates that that is the moment matchmaking messes up and puts me into the wrong difficulty.

That was almost exactly how my one and so far only time in platinum went. I had just promoted all classes, and was starting with the kroguard (I like starting off with him for some reason), looking for a bronze lobby.

While I'm looking at the loading screen, I hear "Team member is down" followed two seconds later by "team member is hurt". I'm wondering just what the heck is going on. As soon as I spawn in to the match, I see it's on Jade, and I notice I'm standing on the bodies of the two downed players. I have just enough time to turn around and find a banshee right in my face, just before she sync-kills me. Once I'm dead, I check the lobby settings, see that it's platinum, and it's only Wave 1. I left immediately.
