I just recently unlocked both Krogans (in one single Premium Spectre Pack) so I haven't been able to enjoy the melee-tastic experience until now.

I had a ton of MSP to burn through when I bought the game so I spent them on Spectre packs hoping to unlock an Asari Adept (easily my favorite class from the demo) ... after about 15 Spectre Packs (some with MSP, some with credits) I couldn't unlock another species to save my damn life. I did however net an N7 Valiant from one. Too bad I suck at sniping.


I got both the Asari Adept and a Krogan in my second Premium Spectre pack - guess that was pretty lucky. I still don't have a Turian, Salarian, or Quarian though.

I played as the Asari Adept last night after promoting my initial Human Male Sentinel. I'm not used to being so weak (low health, shields, and melee) so it is taking me some getting used to. I guess I need to get that Statis bubble unlocked ASAP - I've seen people use that pretty effectively.

Does anyone have battlefield 3 that can help me? I'm trying to get the soldier dlc, I have the online pass but don't have a disc to pop in and log in with. I would be very grateful!

Finally beat the last map I needed for Tour of Duty. I'm still level 18 though. But I'm going to bump up to Silver for a while, unless I can get someone to help me do all 6 Maps on Gold.

got some good geth gold in...so many ppl tried to kick me when I played a vanguard. dood, shockwave rocks when everyone is teching the crap out of geth. It goes through walls. Then I finally switched to an asari adept, 2 @#$% infiltrators kept sniping my warp target beofre I could detonate them w/a biotic explosion. wtf man...then my wifi drops me due to lag. bleh...waste of 8 waves.

I think we farmed 230k, hoping for those new race/classes.

Will be interesting to see if/how they nerf the geth, firebase, and decoy.

I got my Soldier to Level 20 and I sent them off into nothing (Unless they actually do go into SP like the game mentioned; but I doubt it). So now I have a Level 3 Engineer to use for leveling and whatnot. I haven't touched the SP in about 5 days though.

I've done 2 of 6 maps on Silver as well, so that's good. Silver is kind of tough actually.

Sorry, about that Dual. I'm retarded when it comes to remembering to add people.

Add me: Action Kazimer. Generally, if I'm on and ME3 is in (which is pretty much always is,) I'm down to play.


XP, that last drop suuuucked. I was gonna say try to re-join on me, but it was the middle of wave 9 when I got your message. I gotta say though, that's a pretty damned impressive wifi connection. It's also impressive that around wave 5 I had to start running back and forth tending to my sick girlfriend and you guys STILL held shit down! We had some solid teams.

I'm also up to about 650k for tomorrow. Bet I don't get SHEIT.

I don't anticipate them messing with White or the Geth necessarily. I can see them making Decoy draw slightly less agro, but I REALLY don't want them to. Honestly, playing in there with that Human Engineer, the Combat Drone was getting just as much attention as my decoy was. I feel like it's just the nature of the class.

That and laying down fat layers of energy drain and fiiyyah.

The characters themselves are not listed amongst your war assets. They all get lumped together into the "N7 Spec Ops Team." You get a score of 75 for each class you promote.

Whaa? I Just checked a few minutes ago (after you posted) and didn't see it - I went through the marketplace though. If it is there, I'm back on (just stopped playing after like 3 hours ;)).

Edit: Yep, it is there via the game. 165 MB... downloading now...

bigdaddybruce44 - Thanks, I'll have to look there. Since there was nothing tagged "new" I didn't look at every entry. You'd think it would update with new info though.

By the way, I had no problem getting "Master and Commander" in any case when starting up the penultimate mission. I also got the Atlas hijacking achievement from the beginning of that mission for good measure. So I'm pretty set on all the achievements except the insanity/gold ones (and Veteran, though I did get the 2000/5000 popup during my multiplayer). Oh, and I'm up to 6 mail slot kills now - must have gotten some in multiplayer without noticing because I was only at 1 or 2 from my original playthough. I has always used Pull to grab their shields away as I wasn't aware you could kill them through the slot until the very end.

The new maps are there but not sure about the characters. Well, at least I didn't get any new ones in the 2 Spectre packs I bought. And more telling, I didn't see anyone playing the new characters either in 5 multiplayer matches with the new maps. Oh well... I like the Hydra map, though. I even managed to make it all the way through a 3-player match with a new character (Turian Sentinel). Considering that I had relied on Throw for most of my multiplayer up till now that was a nice change of pace. He does much more weapon damage even at a low level.

i noticed the geth were standing idle in my stasis bubble but not in stasis. Then my connection dropped. I also didn't realize how much more credits we earned, I have about double what I posted from last night's runs.

If they mess w/White it might be spawn points and more of them storming in rear nahmsayin? as for Geth, probably just upping their shields, armor, and health, damage output, shield recharge delay, RoF, accuracy, speed, resistance for tech damage, delay between shots when cloaked, just minor tweaks. Decoy? cool down duration will probably be longer, shields/hps for the decoy will probably drop, and it may only fool X number of targets vs. everything until it pops.

...we'll find out soon enough.

Didn't notice before, the new consumables in the DLC packs. "Stablization Mod" that'll be nice. Esp for the Revenant and Turian/soldier.

IanK - I took the time to see how a Tech Burst works. If you hit them with Incinerate (w/duration) then follow it up with Overload (though imagine any tech power w/a linger affect + one w/an instant), it will cause a chain reaction which looks like a close range chain lightning or even the drone w/the up to 3 targets w/lightning upgrade. If they die during that exchange, you get the tech burst kill.

Like mentioned earlier in comm chatter, it'd be nice for more customization vs just a palette change...I'll trade the virtually unnoticable skin tone change for an alternative outfit or even a friggin new helmet/tiara/eye piece.

That makes a lot of sense since everything on my engie is spec'd to hit AoE and sustained. I imagine with all those techs flying everywhere, we were only bound to get thousands of explosions.

I'm pretty sure the fire explosions come from detonating the pyro's flamethrower. I can do it pretty consistently with an Infiltrator, but I guess potshots were triggering them last night. Either way, they're amazing. Mini missiles, pretty much.

As for customization, I'd be happy with even getting different helmets. Then again, I'm a huge TF2 fan. Hats will placate me in most venues. I wouldn't hate a dedicated face-paint option either. I was pretty bummed that the Turians didn't end up with any, while the Asari did.
