I think what my man Ryu is saying is that there are some folks who only like the single player stuff and are dying for more content. While I enjoy the MP, I'd shank a kitten for more sp content. Even if it is more costumes or whatever. ANYTHING good for the campaign would be welcome. More cheevos would be nice too.


Definitely. I've not even touched the MP. Just not into MP these days, too many single player games to get through.

I could understand if ME3 MP was like Fire Fight or Horde, but bioware tying in readiness and war assets through MP was pretty clever and sweet. as much as I love the SP experience and respect the shep, being able to play as other races is really part of the draw to the MP. Mindless cooperative combat, but it's addiciting somehow and not even just for card packs. I'd say, the MP is in some ways a part of the SP experience, it's up to you how much of a part it can be.

I hated that they tied it into the SP personally. I'm just not into MP stuff. Gaming is something I want to do alone to veg out.

They said that they're delaying SP DLC to accommodate for the Extended Cut, but I honestly doubt we would have seen any SP support at this point regardless. I can't personally remember what the windows were between ME2's release and it's DLC, but I'm cool with waiting if the shit's gonna be good.

Last I checked, BioWare Montreal was in charge of all things MP, so that dev time shouldn't be impacting Edmonton's cycles.

I especially love them making Geth easier to farm on Gold (CRI MOIR BSN) and respec cards becoming uncommon now. Hilarious. I finally have a reason to buy Vet Packs again. LOL @ the Hurricane buff. My Turians are going to be monsters now, but I'm still not going to be using the Indra nor Eagle anytime soon.

I'm a single player guy all the way but MP in this game is phenomenal and I couldn't recommend it more as an entry point for MP newbies (like I was).

funny...and the reason why Geth Gold was difficult was because of hunters and pyros and now they're less of them. must be a shortage of parts.

tbh, if you're capped at 255 on equipment and you get the card again...you should just get the shaft. unless i'm mistaken and they meant a total number of equipment is 255 and not 255 of a single type.

I'm sure I'd like it probably since I did enjoy Horde in Gears 2 (didn't play it much in Gears 3).

I just got burnt out on MP, and built up a small backlog of single player stuff I need to get through. So I'm just avoiding any MP stuff for now.

Run roh. Looks like operation silencer was a failure. I thought 3 million seemed like a lofty goal. Check the bioware blog for the update.

The Eagle buff made me laugh (and cry, since I have it and it still probably sucks). The Indra buff made me laugh HARD. Hasn't the Indra been basically "free" to PC players, but only now do they choose to buff it. When it's finally been released for 360/PS3. Sad.


Not really surprised Silencer failed. Exorcist was 1 million Phantoms and the community only hit about 1.5 million. What made them think the community could do 3 million? This sure as hell isn't CoD. To be fair, that one Gold match I played with Inky probably had about 100,000, so we did our part :lol:

I think buffing the N7 wpns is a good idea mainly because, leveling it up will be hard...so what's the point of a lvl 1 Indra when you can just use a lvl X Avenger w/a scope. The free PC Indra still required ppl to register an account with Nvidia or something, so yeah free but there's a step for lazy ppl to take.

As for Silencer failing, I was under the impression the 3 million count was across both platforms. PS3 + Xbox's progress. Oh well...3 million anything outside of geth or swarmers is asking a lot, esp when a bunch of games recently released.

Indra was only free to PC as a singleplayer DLC.

I'll give it until tomorrow. If there's still no pack tomorrow, then I'll hit them up.

Besides, even if I don't get my pack, that last Reaper Gold match was hella fun. That would be worth missing out on the pack (but I'd rather have both).

Word. I'd definitely rank that match as my personal undisputed number one. I haven't had that much fun playing mp since GoW2 with my old crew. I hope they plan to announce a release date for Rebellion soon because I'm down to playing one match per favored class then moving onto something else. Boredom is seriously starting to burrow in and make a home here.

Plus I've noticed that I've lost all patience for incompetence when comes to randoms. I don't even try to pick up people anymore in my hosted games man... haha. It's nice going down every once in a blue moon now.

UPDATE: I found a thread on the BSN, stating that all Commendation Packs had been given out (this thread: http://social.biowar.../index/12095929). So, I contacted EA Support (here: https://help.ea.com/...t=mass-effect-3) and their CS got me my pack.

And good news...

basically the same thing except "DAT VALIANT III BWOY." I'm pretty pleased with that. While I'm alittle bummed out I missed the previous commednation pack...being in hawai'i for that week trumps that reward.

Oh well... I could have easily been a member of the Eagle III Failclub so I'd best keep my mouth shut before this game gets any particularly diabolical ideas.

you'll get it...it may take a few months but there's only so many N7 wpn type they hand out in the commendation packs. I'm sad panda it could have been a Valiant IV. it's kind of a shame the packs expire.
