Juggernaut, AIU, Paladin and Valkyrie vs. Platinum mooks was fun.

Suggested theme song while playing an Asari Valkyrie with a Reegar Carbine against Reapers.

OK, I'll be around on Xbox Live tonight and some of the weekend looking to get this challenge done. Drop me a line if you're up for the challenge.

In the meantime, I came across what seemed like an almost unstoppable party combination last night: Two Juggernauts working in tandem as sync-kill blockers and two Collector Adepts spamming Dark Sphere to thin out the mooks. It was flying through Gold matches - but how would i perform on Platinum? Here's the builds:

Collector Adept

Geth Juggernaut

Platinium isn't as bad as I feared.

Still not easy, obviously. I badly need new kits.

With the new character kits, Platinum shouldn't be too difficult so long as we get a few lobbies together where everyone's communicating and working together.

IT TEAM...... AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSEMBLE!!!!

Challenge completed! Juggernauts are just rocks on Platinum. One will protect a team from sync kills, two or three will just stand there and take everything that gets thrown at them.

Geth, Cerberus, Reapers were not too bad, Collectors were a nightmare, thanks to Scions and possessed Abominations.

Throw in a volus for good measure just to make sure the shields never actually drop...like I said earlier two juggernauts with a volus and a high damage output character almost makes it easy (we had a talon trip mining things to bits).

I played a few rounds platinum, got to round 8, 10 and 2 respectively against Reapers, Geth and Collectors. Who does this for fun? This is madness!

I did a Cerberus platinum with Shadowsenshi and LDS, we got it on our first try. But then we failed Geth platinum twice on round 6.

So insanity is only 25% done for me. Going to give it another try later tonight.

Just did the silver challenge. Did Cerberus Platinium, but that's about my limit I think. Puggers just aren't up to the task.

Yeah, it's nigh impossible with randoms. You really need to coordinate what kits you're using, strategy, etcetera.

agreed, everyone needs to work together to win, comparing the night before last we made some attempts, we had 3, and the 1 random seriously messed up our mojo and we lost more than we won, whereas yesterday with 4 players communicating and working together as a unit, it was almost a cakewalk. almost :D

You have to be lucky and find a good, patient Juggernaut-Player and at least two quite good DDs (Damage Dealer, not DoomsdayDevices ^^).
We helped another player with low rating and crap equipent. Didn't do much damage but he also didn't mess arround and did a good job to lure the big ones to the Juggernaut.

This weekend challange was absolute fun and not much out there beats a Juggernaut and Geth Trooper working together. I just love my big brothers Grin

I'd say just do it. Not much to lose there anyway, right? ;)
