Do your time in silver like the rest of us!

When I have a platinum lobby with friends and we need a fourth we have to filter the randoms constantly. It is as rare as a double N7 drop rate to get a good player. People keep coming in with 0 equipment and level 1 guns like the mantis. If you don't have a strong manifest and experience don't enter platinum! Do your silver or gold and do your time like the rest of us.

The two excuses I can give these people are that when you first play the Mass Effect 3 multiplayer, the difficulty is set to Unknown. It will also sometimes plop you into a match of a different difficulty than what you searched for if (presumably) it didn't find a match with the parameters you searched for on the difficulty you wanted. They could be dropped into a Gold or Platinum lobby with no idea what's going on. I actually played with a fair few people with mics that claimed that's what they did.

That said, credit leeching is a far more likely reason.

I don't think most people are aware that insanity on Sp in equal to Silver on MP.

More like bronze IMHO.

I usually just quit the lobby if someone obviously underleveled enters a silver+ game and isn't kicked. If I join into a game and someone dying every 10 seconds with a Predator or hiding behind a wall I also quit. Leechers can go screw themselves.

No, keep these awful people I've been playing with out of my comfortable Silver games. For the millionth time I just need to move to Gold but I don't want to bring these characters I don't even like to play in there while I grind banners. Ugh, why am I grinding banners.

I have noticed more and more that people can't or will not start on bronze and learn what works and what fails before moving to silver and gold, when I got the game back in Dec. this was not an issue as new players were not trying to leech off anyone let alone drag down the team.

Recently the new players have been a problem though as I have seen level 3s, 4s and 5s in silver and gold with no gear bonus, and no mods.
