I can see where you're coming from. I honestly can't do Crushing unless there are two good people. Even if it's a noob, I prefer three people because there's nothing better than a healing monkey. As long as they know how to use cover and can take the hint to follow you then that's fine.
im with you bro i hate it too people always pick normal or easy in co-op arena and adventure its has been ages since i didnt play a crushing party i got fet up i always find noobs voting for easy anyway add me if you wanna play crushing psn id : amine griffy
it is to leave before the vote starts, when you see your teamates are really noobs
you'll spare a lot of time trust me

Well…there’s also the other extreme. Players that vote for Crushing when, once the match starts, are clearly in over their heads – perhaps, in some misguided belief that I can/will carry them through the entire match on my own. So…you either let them die (no match completion – and make no mistake, I want to complete matches…I care much less about kills and cash) OR spend all your time saving them.
I consider myself to be pretty good at coop but I need at least one other decent player and prefer if the third isn’t a complete boat anchor. It’s actually refreshing to have an inexperienced player on the team…IF they are willing to learn.
If you’re looking for a challenge, maybe Arena Crushing on split screen? I know some players that will have one character hang from an edge on the outside of the map (Yemen comes to mind) and can complete an Arena Crushing on their own.
