Monster Power and Public games

  • Hopefully I'll get a response here as opposed to the General Discussion:

    I am having trouble trying to understand how this works (I guess partly because I'm not currently participating in the PTR).

    At the bottom of this post:
    "(Note: If you join a multiplayer game, you will adopt the Monster Level of the party leader. When you leave the party, your Monster Power level will automatically revert back to your previous setting.)"

    So, let's say that I am currently only able to do MP 5. My gear isn't good enough to go higher. Do I have the ability to only look for Public Games with a MP 5 (or any other specific Monster Power Level)?

    Or I will just randomly join a Multiplayer game with whatever currently is open?

    From the above quote I'm assuming that I will just randomly get put into a game. If this is the case - I feel that the below will happen:
    - So If I can only currently handle MP5, I might join a game that is on MP10 which I can't handle.
    - Then I will leave that game, join another game and it's on MP1, which I have no interest in doing.
    -Then I will leave that game, join another game and then get "Input Limit Reached" and have to log back in.

    Is this how the current system works in regards to Multiplayer games?

    Negative, Ghost Rider. Monster Power will not be available for Public Games. I provided a bit more information on that topic here: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/6713012205?page=2#30
