I was in a team of Bronze and Golds, myself included....we beat a whole fireteam of Platifnums -_-
Do explain how those ranks matter? or given they were all above level 80 or whatever.
It all depends, did your team all use mics? My random team had mics and we knew nothing about each other but...we over came.
Anyways, yeah you might just want to just create a Fireteam of your friends. Seems a lot of people do..
