Did my first two Platinum games today, and I'd like to know how well I did:
1) White/Cerb., TGI (Original, I know), finished all objectives but no extraction, 43 min This match went surprisingly well. I was honestly surprised at how much damage I was doing; it felt like it was more than Gold (Probably because we were all focusing the enemies). I'm fairly certain we would have extracted if the Cabal and Batsent were level 20 (They were both lvl 16). Had to finish off a wave with a bunch of Atlas', a few Banshees, and a Phantom left, so I abused the hell out of the Right Hand Advantage and used up almost all of my items.
Build was 6/3/5/6/6 (I think that's the order; I had three in Stim). Lancer I and Acolyte X. AP IV ammo, Warfighhter, AR mod, Stabilization booster
2) Rio/Reapers, Collector Adept (Probably my second best class; first is Shadow, but it wouldn't work on Plat.), full extract, 39 min. We had a Juggernaut with us and a Volus (As well as a Krogan who really didn't do much), so he tanked and we didn't have to abuse "The Box". It was used twice; once by me when a Banshee refused to leave me alone, and once by me and the Volus after all hell broke out during the 4 Devices (We were tag-teaming the devices since I had the Seeker DR and a full shield build while the Jugg. sat in the middle and tried his best to get as much attention as possible and the Krogan was...somewhere...). We all abused the RHA at The Box's end of the map and it went fairly smoothly; even the Pizza objective we had. I ended up with ~140k+ points, with the Jugg. in second with ~80k+ (Volus was last, but was the lynchstone that made this work).
Build was 6/5/3/6/6. DS for full radius (My Gold build; it still OHKOs cannibals). CSMG IX and Acolyte X. Warp IV, Expert Package, Power Amp IV, SMG mod
So how'd I do? Do I get to stay in Platinum, or should I practice more?
Have you seen my sisters? Last I saw them they were standing in a row. They are quite lovely.
The reason I ask is because I don't know how long a "Standard" Platinum game should be
Should be about 25 minutes (+ or - 5 minutes) depending on the team.
Your goal should be to complete it within the time frame it would take to complete 2 gold matches. If you can run gold in 20 minutes, then its worth your time to play 2 gold matches in that time than play one 45 minute platinum match.
