I'm done with this game.

After being able to play maybe 30% of all the games I've tried to play this weekend, I manage to get a complete game done with the hope of promoting my third character. Completed extraction, even got the extraction complete screen.

Then pops up ANOTHER "You have been disconnected from the Mass Effect 3 server." message. I'm not too worried because I've finished the game, so I should get my Experience and Credits, right?

WRONG. Still the same amount of experience for my character. Not promoted to Level 20.

Look, the ending can be argued all we want, but in the end, that was a stylistic decision. But to fail to provide adequate servers to run the multiplayer is a complete lack of quality on Electronic Arts's part.

i just finished a match with the self proclaimed king of ME3 MP. the guy would not shut up about how his way is the best way to play...sadly the 2 low double digit 1st time gold players were just stroking his ego raw. How bad? He used the word, I carry, clutch, and don't use anything but "insert class/race/power."

That said...3 promotions. I didn't even care anymore, I used all 5 rockets so we could just finish to shut the guy up.

Ran into an 1800+ rating who tried to tell everyone how to play their class. And what mods to use. And to GTFO if you had a rating below 200. On Bronze. Started yelling at some people. "Why are you using an Extended Clip with the GPR? It's got enough bullets. Why not use Extended Barrel?" Right. So, we can make the mosquito bite sting a little bit more. Also, you can never have enough bullets, stupid. And why aren't you shutting up? Just amazing.

Really, how many stupid people in the world can there be? Wait...don't answer that.

Yeah, I find that the high N7 rating guys (1000+) tend have big mouths but usually are at best mediocre players. Kicking players off bronze is just laughable and if he's so good, what's he doing wasting his time in a bronze game anyway?

I love the random banshees, I hope they do more of these mixups. Actually a permanent option to have random combinations of enemies would be really fun.

I swear you guys have a monopoly on all the entertaining idiots. I'm jealous. All of mine are of the ordinary micless "What does this button do?" Dee Dee kind of stupid.

I think I might change my mind on not boosting and run some Random Gold tomorrow for Rebellion. The thought of getting stuck with only a Phoenix Adept, Male Quarian Engineer and that Reegar Shotgun for a long period of time was incentive enough. Ugh.

I think I might have you all beat on the awful experience tales, though mine was on the PSN.

Three guys who were friends of each other were playing Firebase White against the Geth on Gold. I was a random who entered the lobby, and the game started. I had played this setup once before, and was told the best place for defense by two random players from that previous game, and we actually survived to the end.

I had my N7 Crusader Shotgun Lvl II, with upgraded accuracy and piercing mods, my M-99 Saber Lvl I, with the added scope mod, and a few added equipment bonuses, and setup a defensive position in the lower office looking part of the map, where you can do the grab attack if you're behind cover.

For some reason these three other guys insisted upon splitting up, with one guy sniping outside my area, and the other two sort of sticking together, moving around the map. The duo would get downed occasionally, and the sniper would get overwhelmed by the amounts of Geth coming at him, and this is where they proceeded to shout at me for being of no use. Meanwhile, my decoy allowed me to hit Geth at range with my Saber, and when they came closer I used the Crusader, or even grab. Regardless of that, these guys proceeded to go on a racist and homophobic rant about me, adding that I must clearly have my parent buy all my weapons in-game, because I'm not good enough to play, and that I should take my parents money to buy some rope and hang myself with it.

I came in a distant 4th place, as my strategy of defending while the Geth came at us was useless as they just moved around, erratically, getting kills but also getting downed, screaming at each other to get them up, then continuing to yell at me for using a decoy. They wouldn't go for the objectives, claiming that was my problem, as they continued to focus on kills.

Best yet was the end game menu, where they decided they'd teach me a lesson in counting. Warning, offensive racial language.



We got to the last wave and they decided to get killed intentionally, so that they wouldn't "give" me more points for a full extraction, even though I was the only one to survive the final wave.

Watching the video lead me to look up their IDs in google to see if they had similar usernames elsewhere, which they did. One guy belongs to several online dating sites and porn sites, but the best is the guy who lead the rant about me not having skill in his game. This comes up on the first google page if you search for his name;

Not for me, but that's what years of competitive multiplayer will do to a human being. I use them as motivation to top the leaderboard for lulz, conversational pieces and teabag them with my characters by purposely cancelling revives. They are way more useful than you guys care to realize.

Anyway... we've finally got a patch confirmed for tomorrow so here are the notes:

Btw, while that may be true, it'd be great if they didn't try to rally the others into kicking you. Then MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, you'll get your chance to do exactly what you said. Getting kicked before you embarrass them is kind of counterproductive.

Doesn't sound like a pleasant group, but there's plenty of hate in the community towards decoy and FBWGG. That's probably where the no skill accusations were rooted from.

Edge - Easiest solution is to stop searching for random lobbies to join and host your own. Sucks for Gold, but works like a charm for the other difficulties especially if you speed up the process by soloing until people show up.

I understand why people prefer rolling the dice with the normal route as their time is precious, but being at the mercy of a checklist three nerds in a party are only privy to doesn't sound particularly appealing to me. Especially when I'd probably run circles around them all with some of the worst builds I could possibly create if dusted off my tryhard cap.

The odd part is that the guy complaining the loudest was using a decoy, too.

I just don't understand why people act so special, but then he complains on a message board about experiencing it himself.

Sorry. Most of the time it isn't intentional, but if it's late night on the weekends then you can blame that on an extra long day at work. If I did accept those requests I'd probably bite your head off or remain mute the entire time due to mental fatigue then leave abruptly.

Neither of us want that trust me. I can be a pretty moody person.

Got my 3 promotions in yesterday. Had to stay up way too late to get my Asari Adept up, but sometimes you do what you gotta do. Now, I just have to wait til Wednesday or Thursday and probably be disappointed in getting an N7 weapon that I don't particularly care for. Mostly kidding. I'm hoping they do what they did with the Resurgence packs and give us a guaranteed new character with a Rebellion pack. I needs that Ex-Cerb Vanguard!

Just be careful. The cutoff time was apparently 500AM MDT, Monday. Normally, it's 500PM PDT.

So, all promotion tallies will be taken from data covered from 1700 (5PM) , 25 May 2012 through to 0500 (5AM), 28 May 2012. All times mountain.

I like the combat drone but I have noticed it is useless much of the time. On bronze I would use it and have the highest score from just assists I would get from it. Gold it does nothing but die early on. I think they should up the health of it but I'm sure they wont.

what i wondered re: operation kill 5,000,000 banshees is...banshees are probably the rarest form of reaper, how the hell did N7 expect us to kill that many? would there even be that many around? I understand it's a game but considering the way they set up the mission types, they seem very serious about it.

that said, Revenant is finally at X.

New info on Rebellion here and MP Manifest are reportedly showing new content. I hope the Vorcha's playstyle isn't too melee oriented. The less overlap the better. I'm going to laugh my ass off though if the Cerb Vanguard is the one with Stasis instead of the Adept.

Looks sick. I love the looks of that Sur'kesh map. I'm on Arkham City DLC tonight, but I'm down for some games this week. I gotta get some space bucks for the new guys.

Meh... both Cerbs have Lash and Smash (no Stasis); Both Quarians have Grenades and Scan; Both Vorcha have Flamer and Bloodlust. I hope at least one of the new weapons is fun to use for a while. The Harrier is an ultra rare so the likelihood of me getting one is pretty slim.

Lash and Smash sound neat at least. Being able to pull people through shields and cover sounds cool, and I'll probably like the synergy on the Vanguard between Charging and Smashing. I guess it's pretty much just Nova at that point though (still never played as the human vanguard.)
