Playing with bad teammates is harder than soloing platinum

It's wave 9 of collectors/white, and I still have 6 medi gel. My teammates all die so I use a medi gel and a missile trying to save them, but they bleed out. So I spend the next 5 mins or so soloing the entire wave 9. Wasn't too bad, I died once to a phantom behind me. Then wave 10 comes, and guess what, they all die within the first 10 seconds again. So it's just me by myself, and I have to do an escort all the way across the map. With 1 player uploading in a 4 player game, you basically have to stand inside it the entire time. I only have 5 missiles so it's literally impossible to do. Why are randoms so bad? They could at least leave the game so the one person who actually did anything the whole game could get his credits.

Yeah just needed to vent a little.

I know that feel. I mean its bad enough that some players decide to dumb-down and wipe without effort during the horde waves, but on the Objective waves? It's like, why are you even here? You don't want to put in the effort and you don't want the mulah, I'm sure there's a comfy place waiting for you in Bronze.

BtW TC, how was their loadout/kits? Did they use anything that made you suspicious?

I wish that if someone died during an objective wave and it's an escort/hack, it'd speed up (similar to how if you solo, the hack goes faster since you're alone) so that it's actually possible for the one guy left to complete.

I agree. I was doing a Collectors match the other day with the Salarian Engineer, and my team (which consisted of a Batarian Soldier, a Destroyer, and another class I can't remember) kept wiping wave after wave. I kid you not, I spent Waves 6 through 9 alone for atleast half of it, before finally succumbing to a Possessed Praetorian on 9.

At first, I made an honest effort to revive them if they went down, but eventually there came a point where I just gave up. Soloing each wave was much easier than wasting consumables to try and get them back up.

Escort - team member and I inside the ring. 2 other team members walking just outside the escort ring like a a foot or 2 outside it.

Hacking objective - I'm hacking a device and my team member thinks the best way to protect me from a charging Brute is stand right on top of me as it charges.
(FACEPALM)

Round 10 - Team goes down constantly, I barely complete the objective alone, they've used no rockets or other consumables to this point.
Round 11 - IT'S ROCKET TIME!

At least when you're soloing you pretty much always have a feel for where the enemies are, but when you're playing with a bunch of dumb randoms there's a chance that one of them will bring a banshee or a preatorian right to you.

Do not judge others unless you judge yourself first.Afterwards pick up a 12 gadge shotgun and prepare for the zombie apocolypse.
