Randoms logic: Level 8 vanguard (level 9 N7) + Level 1 Infiltrator, joining a bronze match = "LETS GO TO SILVER GUYS!" "IN FACT, LETS USE THE FBW/G/G STRATEGY, TOO!"

What?

some ppl just aren't good at this game that's all.

it kills me to see my friend's son play ME3 on casual, halo on casual, and everything else on casual...then asks me why I won't play with him in TDM on anything. he's not 10 anymore either...and still claims to be the ultimate gamer.

most of us can laugh, but i laughed at myself when I realized that we're boasting how good we are at a cooperative game :lol: compared to lesser carebears. (though my carebear would be black and grey camo w/a shuriken on his chest and a ninja hood over his head)

Technically if we were truly boasting we'd be whining about this latest development on BSN championing the death of credit farmers because their "ruining" our game. You know along with the rest of the morons with genuine superiority complexes.

Thankfully we know at the end of the day however some people choose to play this game doesn't have to affect any of us in the slightest. It just kind of sucks the strategy finally bled out into Silver and Bronze because most players will never have any incentive to improve. Plus the stupid nerd arguments on how to play this game "properly" will continue to skyrocket from gamers who haven't had any experience with MP until now and have no idea what the f*ck they are talking about.

Now that would certainly be nice. Besides we're ten times friendly than the "pros" from other forums what with offering advice and game invites to everyone who's interested in getting better at the game. If anyone deserves to complain from time to time, I'd say we're more than qualified.

Btw has anyone received their Exorcist OP packs yet? I know it probably isn't time yet but I haven't seen any credit given on my BSN profile for completing it and obviously I'm a bit concerned.

EDIT: Just received my Victory Pack, but no Commendation. Here we go again. Not sure why I'm the least bit perturbed at the moment. We all know I'm going to get an Eagle or Hurricane II anyway. -_-'

the BSN gets an info delay so i don't think they've dropped the packs yet. earlier in the thread they said check around 8-9pm EST. I don't know if the community popped 100k phantoms but I know i did gold several times. I'm going to check in about a half hour.

unless it's a map glitch or combos with math, I generally don't pay attention to the BSN forums at all...I haven't read the forums outside of links from here.

have you see how high you can get the grenade damage to? holy crap. 8.65m for a frag nade doing 1000+. It's been Carnage/knock down. A few pumps of the falcon pwnch rifle, and finished off with a hefty f_u_nade. cerberus was so sad.

i'll be on tonight for a bit, then ill be off for about a week. buiness/pleasure/some place tropical...which is why i was glad to hear they decided on every other week for challenges.

I ran Bronze, Silver, and Gold Cerberus matches just trying to kill Phantoms. 1,000,000 is a lot more than the usual 350k or 500k.

I'm curious if there's ever going to be an event that forces everyone to play only a certain enemy or a certain level. And I mean, EVERYONE. Most of these events, you see people doing the event objective and then doing something else.

For instance, I was wondering if everyone was going to be killing Cerberus all weekend long just to kill 1,000,000 Phantoms. Doesn't look like it which REALLY makes me wonder if we got that many.

I wouldn't have received a Victory Pack if the community hadn't achieved that goal so we either reached it, BioWare boosted the numbers, or gave us a consolation prize for our first failure.

As for grenades, Infernos are sadly the only ones that can't inflict a metric f*ckton of damage when properly spec'd. I remember my first QI build where I completely skipped Sabotage and buff up Stickies to do well over 1200 DMG with a 3m radius. I spent more time camping near enemy spawn points than helping out the teams I was placed on, haha. I still would have preferred a cooldown for them especially for human soldiers because their respawn timer is absolute murder. You honestly can't rely on them.

Almost every match I played all weekend had Cerberus as the AI.

Here's a question. Is Bioware going to expect players to play through the ending AGAIN in order to get the "Clarified" ending?

Ugh, don't remind me. Still having nightmares about them (Banshees! Banshees everywhere!) :lol:

Also, on an unrelated note, it appears they added the M-90 Indra to MP. It sucks ass (according to the stats), but still worth noting.

So I've heard. There's also a rumor of a new MP DLC called the "Rebellion" pack floating around, but until I see some pics it (in typical internet fashion...) never happened. I guess BioWare is still trying to work some of the kinks out because the Premium Spectre Pack disappeared from the store when I reset my box. I just hope none of this nonsense unearths a new glitch just waiting to be abused at our expense.

Amen. I know we all thought the same of Resurgence, but that guy had pics to substantiate his claims. Not that the inclusion of male Quarians is unthinkable, but for the life of me I can't understand why BOTH have to be shoehorned into Engineer and Infiltrator roles. The one thing we need more of in terms of viability are Soldiers IMO. Hopefully if the rumors pan out then the Vorcha can cut it. I honestly just imagine them to be glass cannons with shitty mobility, Inferno Grenades, situational passives, half decent shielding and no roll/booty bounce at the moment. Now that would disappoint the hell out of me.

Here's a link for the rest of lazy bums so you can join in on the discussion: http://fronttowardsg...ck-info-leaked/

A rather interesting tidbit is that a GameFAQs poster supposedly got suspended for posting a picture uploaded by a BioWare team member (I believe) of what many assume is a male Quarian. I saw it myself but the screen shot was so small I couldn't make heads or tails of it. I'm far too lazy to fire up PS to zoom in for a closer look.

I get the feeling Volus will never be MP characters. Mainly because they're short. This creates problems with their hitbox and if they normalize the hitbox, players might complain.

Aside from that, it'd be hilarious.
