This video is more about map positioning and setup rather than speed run or some form of "showing off."

The secret of beating platinum in under 30 minutes is to play with competent teammates and to back out of any lobby set to Rio. No need for a long video.

OMG Bessy, why didn't you tell me this before?!?! I'm in total shock right now.

... But yeah, over 90% of Platinum matches that I do with friends end in success. There's no formula, there's no guaranteed way to get it done; you simply need a good squad that you can communicate with.

Thanks for the video and all but it's not exactly necessary. Good teammates and good communication can get it done in about 20-22 minutes.

Giant or glacier. That's my easiest way. I got 24 minutes on Giant before. I assume Glacier will be even faster.

I love how everyone on the internet is an expert without facts or details.

giant or glacier is the closest thing to a tip in this thread.

The video is more about the map position than anything else. I find Platinum challenging with friends because it isn't so simple as people like to boast. Also I consider using more than 2 rockets (of my own) a failure. Just personal preference.

Feel free to teach me your tricks me3 masters. I'm listening.

13 minutes on Giant, Platinum. 30 minutes is a long time.
