Liara and Garrus was pretty great too, actually. He goads her the entire time.


I think any squadmate goads her on that planet/level. Although Javik offers the best dialogue BY FAR. James also poked at her a little.

This is Your Squad. These are the People that You Play With.


So, which one are you guys? I'm a mix of the Trooper, Sniper, and the Unlucky Charm (just with the worst the match has to offer)

They should have added "End Justifies The Means" and "C.R.E.A.M." personality types since both would probably properly describe my playstyle and overall attitude. The only two things that matter to me are credits and wave completion whatever the cost. I'll solo, I'll hero, I'll martyr, I'll carry and damn you all to hell and back if it guarantees I'll get paid or end the game quicker so I can leave.

Probably sell us all into prostitution for the Reapers, if it meant more credits ;P

Technically that would make me a Batarian Sentinel only after the game I'd Submission Net the rest of the team and sell them all into galactic slavery.

Also one of the cool ideas I saw on BSN was for a Ferelden/Darkspawn map.

Would be pretty sweet if we had a DLC pack that had 2-4 Dragon Age themed maps that reskinned the enemies as darkspawn, fade demons, etc.

Damnit Edge! You beat me to it. Anyway... I'm very disappointed. They were doing so well for a while there then went right back to getting it wrong. The only real positive I see there is the Wraith buff. Everything else is either completely nonsensical, unnecessary, or changes no one in their right mind wanted e.g. XP increases.

The credit shift between the sixth and tenth waves is ESPECIALLY moronic.

Hey guys! I wanted to let everyone know that the team is aware of the issues everyone is discussing in this thread and are feverishly working on a solution. This is our number one priority, and I don't have a firm ETA of when this will be resolved, however, this is being taken very seriously.
I appreciate your patience. We'll update you guys when we have more information.
I should go.

No reason to believe you'll still be locked out. I got my Victory Pack, opened it, and started playing a few matches. Aside from quite a few idiots (the usual), nothing was terribly off. That and EDrain suddenly not having a visual graphic.

Posted 03 May 2012 - 12:07 AM

so i have come to the conclusion that to complete my Mass Effect full on nerdism image... I am gonna have to select two team members and use tem the whole series, go back and get two more and do it again... i am finding way too much dialogue and cutscenes (although mostly from 3) that I have not seen. I guess fi I have to. :)

I did try running on all out damage Geth Infiltrator with the Geth Shotty X... Hunter Mode + Tac Cloak + Geth Shotty = daaaaaaaaamn. I guess it resembles this:



but I took the Geth for the weapon bonus, and the lighter weight so i could spec into +40% Sniper Damage and take my Mantis X as well for more options.. The build here has reach, but I had flexibility. Went awesome and is a very killer combo. I specd max in fitness too and left Prox mine empty since i never use it and like the extra hits i can take.

The unnecessary Frag buffs made Concussion Shot completely obsolete and the credit wave switch makes me feel like I'm making far less on a shitty team than I would otherwise despite the fact they said the payments haven't changed. Either that or time bonuses are absolutely MANDATORY to get the most out of a game. Terrible.

Oh, and as predicted I scored a Hurricane II which I will use with one of my kamikaze Adepts and Batarian Soldier eventually. I'm definitely buying The Witcher 2 soon. I need a break from this game.

The thing is, +10% wave 6 =/= -10% of wave 10 if that's what really happened

I'm sure it did. It just feels weird/wrong at the moment. Great for Random Gold with a bunch of strangers who won't finish I suppose, but once everyone finds out I can imagine plenty of idiots deliberately idling under the assumption that it's a wave boost when it's really the base total. Meh. I just think I'm finally burned out on this game and that balance patch didn't help my mood at all.

Victory packs have been like that from the start. The different one was the resurgence weekend victory pack where they basically combined a resurgence pack with the victory pack since you were supposed to be guaranteed a new character.

Been out of town for a little while (Merlefest in NC!) and didn't get to play at all this weekend. I'm also getting a little bored with this game. They need to release some new MP content real soon!

Saw the talk a few pages back about Borderlands. I'm a huge fan and am really excited about the new game (and that sweet chest replica!) I put in so many hours in that game. Just mindless looting! It sure wasn't much for story or true weapon/enemy variety but I loves me some loot regardless. Still only have two pearls to show for it though ;)

Borderlands is probably my second favorite game of this generation (after Mass Effect 2). I am hugely looking forward to B2!
