Question for those of you who regularly play Platinum

#1MegaTape13Posted 1/21/2013 7:18:32 PM
How do you guys even find games? I've been searching for 10 minutes and every lobby is either Rio, Missile glitching, or filled with equipmentless level 10s who I don't remotely trust.

I play with friends. I do occasionally find games where people actually want to play platinum. If I can't, I'll just host a game.

yea its nice to have a friend or two to join your lobby, then its a lot easier to find a last player.

I have the exact same problem, TC. I've tried finding several different Platinum games, and it's either filled with missile glitchers or Rio box campers.

I'd really like to get together with GFAQs people sometime and try a real Platinum match...

Platinum PUGs are rarely worth it. Just go Gold unless you've got a team, and if you end up with a group that does well and talks, you might be able to convince them to bump up to Platinum.

I'll play gold with PUGs, but I'll only platinum with people from here.

It definitely takes patience. Search for FB Giant, seems to be one of the more used legit PUG platinum maps.

I usually go gold unless I have 3+ friends online, then we will randomly pick up the last spot. BUT we are picking about who we pick on last spot.

Easy

Step 1: Get class that you know can live for 2 or 3 waves
Step 2: Load up Plat game on random
Step 3: Keep Enemies AWAY from the spawn point so allies don't spawn next to enemies and get sync killed while waiting for the game to load
Step 4: Play instead of waiting, having fun/nofun until help arrives

This also works well on Gold

For best results use Ghost/Drell Assassin/Huntress

Works most of the time. Plus this way I don't have to cringe at noobs who think giving a fem vanguard shockwave and a Javelin is a good idea
