I select Veteran.
I was 3 seconds away from EASILY (walk in the park (practically sleeping)) winning my first placement match, then *boom*, computer freezes.
I come back to win 4-0 the rest of the placements in an incredibly uneven set of matches. Then, "Congratulations! You've been placed in Gold division!"
Thanks, Blizzard. I can't wait to live in placement match heaven where I log on and can practically play all the placement-level matches I want!
