I only play my Krogaurd in gold and higher and honestly have had it happen maybe 5 times in the last couple months. he is still glitchy in getting him to actually charge sometimes and a few issues with using packs or getting stuck for a few seconds after charging, but it happens very seldom to me.

OPERATION: FLASHDANCE

Squad Goal: Achieve an escort mission with three Asari (any kit) and one Human male (any kit) on Firebase Goddess.
Allied Goal: 2'000 Full extractions on Firebase Goddess on Platinum difficulty

Defenders of the Milky Way:
Reaper forces have targeted the Athena Nebula and activity on Thessia has been increased significantly. Alliance experts deduce that there is an artifact of untold origin somewhere on the Asari homeworld that has attracted the attention of the enemy. While there are no signs of indoctrination, which is a well documented tool our enemy employs, the Asari exhibit unparalleled influence over other species and the Reapers may be searching for a means to commandeer these abilities. Be it in the economic arena, the battlefield or as they writhe on the dance floors of the galaxies finest establishments, the Asari have proven to be a formidable ally as well as easy on the eyes. Our unified forces have initiated a full frontal assault which have staggered the Reapers, and the Asari continue to hold the line at strategic Thessian locations including the holy grounds at the Chamber of the Goddess, their Element Zero refinement centers and entertainment district nightclubs. I, for one, would welcome a full frontal assualt by an Asari commando, if you know what I mean.

As we have in all previous operations: Prepare for the jump across the Milky Way as we heed to call to arms! We will strategically pull out N7 battalions to support the defense of Thessia while I pull out my omni tool and go to town. The Asari are too important an ally to turn our backs on. We should always have our fronts pointed towards them. Always.

Hackett out.

Lol oh wow, 2,000 Full ext on Plat!? Ahahahaha

I'll get in on that squad goal though; that seems fairly reasonable.

Shouldn't be too hard, I will be promoting a few myself just for the medi-gel capacity since it isn't that hard to level back up.

Yeah, I guess I'll bullet-bite and promote a few. Weirdly enough, I'm actually wishing I could have my Hurricane getting streak back. Gun's kinda sick.

That's the problem with isolated cases. People who don't get the glitch are the exception to the norm, not the norm. Also, hilarious in that thread is someone said "oh, it only happens 1 in 4 matches". I don't know if he realizes its, but that's REALLY BAD :lol:

Now I need to be on the lookout for that Mini because it's in my state. :D

Probably on the other side of the state, if I had to make a guess.

I saw that picture yesterday, but I never saw the plate. I don't think any random number plate would be fitting for it. I wonder where they are at in Missouri. I'm sure they are no where near the St. Louis area.

Haha that guy can charge $5 a head for tours of his mini in his drive way. Really though, if N7 represented a car, which one would it be, I'd put my money on something like a Mercedes SLS?:

Not that I've seen. My money's on 1200. Or at least I'm hoping it's long enough to warrant said price.

I thought we knew it was 800 points? Maybe I just imagined that.

Anyway, that trailer... Not to be "that" Mass Effect fan, but it seemed pretty shooty-shooty. More Arrival than Lair of the Shadow Broker. I don't know what to think yet. I want something that's character- and lore- driven, the way LOTSB was. Not just a "We Fight or We Die"™ shooting gallery.

Yeah, I'm hoping there's more to it, but I could very easily see it being what amounts to a handful of multiplayer maps taped together by hallways. It would be Arkham City's Harley Quinn DLC all over again, which seems to be becoming a new norm.

Leviathan is confirmed 800 points. Regarding the weapons, aren't there new ones? Maybe those in the trailer are the new ones?
