I've been doing my great big fuckall "Play Mass Effect 1-3 with all DLC" runthrough, and it's kept me away from ME3 multiplayer for like a month now.

The desire to play that addictive ass multiplayer is... waning, surprisingly.

No multiplayer at all? Man you've been missing out on the new maps and classes then.

the thread I linked has become 50+ pages long now so umm yeah wow. Bioware has posted in it and they're actively working on it but no ETA when it will be fixed.

Okay so Multiplayer came back up at 5am PST for me but no pack so I went to bed.

I just got in to play multiplayer and even though I didn't play yet the commendation pack is there.

I know it affected mostly PC players but apparently it was affecting even some Xbox360 players.

Found a great squad and we beat Gold on Unknown/Unknown last night! Of all successful extractions, only 3.5% are on Gold according to ME3 MP telemetry: http://...bioware.com/.../uploads/2012/05/MP-Telemetry.jpg

I wonder what that stat is for Unknown/Unknown, I'm guessing less than 1%.

I feel it bears mentioning: Those numbers are skewed (not sure by how much, but still skewed) because the only real benefit for getting a Gold extraction is more XP... and most people are already level 20 when doing golds, so if a groups is farming gold they will often finish the event on Wave 10 then let themselves be wiped since finishing up Wave 10 and doing Wave 11 will be around a 3-5 minute wait with no real reward.

This is true and there's a credit farming glitch that hasn't been patched yet. =/

The credit Farming glitch is bannable as from what I've read on teh sticky thread on the BSN forums.

Today is your last day to farm and FBW/Geth/Gold because I just read the balance update thread and they're delaying the update but they will be BUFFING the Geth besides the N7 Eagle.

Eric Fagnan from Bioware said:



Unfortunately, this week's balance changes will not be available today. We will try to get them out as soon as possible.

As a preview of this week's changes, we will be buffing some weapons including the Eagle, and making some changes to the Geth enemies that spawn on Gold waves.



PS: Forgot to post this new DLC leak as well.

Downloaded the new pack and ran some missions with two of my friends (WWNSX has run with them with me before).

The maps:
Really awesome maps. Much better additions than the clusterfucks that are Firebase: Condor and Firebase: Hydro. The first one I did was based on the Salarian homeworld mission while the second was on Thessia, but it was a mostly new map (not based on anywhere you went when you were on Thessia). There were a few minor bugs as far as cover was concerned on the new maps, but mostly pretty well designed.

New Characters/Weapons:
Didn't unlock any, but I'm excited to try out the new Phoenix and Quarian characters. Looks very interesting. And from what I've been able to gather from the forums, the Reegar Carbine is basically a lightning shooting flamethrower with a super short range but it's ridiculously destructive...

Others:
One thing they didn't mention in the main link was a new type of equipment. I forget what they call it, but it's basically something you equip which gives a static bonus but it's not consumed after the mission. It's, obviously, not as strong as a consumable and you can only equip one at a time, but it's still pretty solid. For example, I got the Tier I (of 5) of the Shotgun Rail upgrade (not the temporary mod) and it gave a 5% damage boost with shotguns while it was equipped. There are tons of different types... check out your Multiplayer Manifest under the section "Gear" to see what options there are.

How is the multiplayer? I was so aggitated by the ending of the game I didn't play it at all. Sad thing was I loved the game, just the ending annoyed me.

The ending actually made me depressed and not want to even bother playing the playthroughs I had planned for ME2 and ME3. Why there is no fucking point.

That being said I've played a shit ton of ME3 multiplayer with OB members and with random people and it's somewhat fun for me usually better with OB people on PC.

The BSN forums have good posts if you search for Guide and Builds for whatever class but some people don't understand that you shouldn't be nerfing classes and guns in a PvE co-op game. I also posted links in this thread a few pages back to some guide websites as well.



I like Firebase Jade but Goddess is going to take some getting used to. Condor I don't like as much as Hydra which I do love especially playing as a infiltrator.

I've played a lot last night and the male Phoneix character sounds liked it's voiced by Mark Meers to me when i see other players playing him.

I've unlocked only 1 things so far and that's the Mental Focuser Gear level 1 for my gear slot which adds a +4% bonus to tech and biotic powers which is awesome.

It looks like the Gear Items will get up to 5 levels, so I wonder how crazy the bonuses are going to get.

I unlocked the Gral shotgun level 9 from this past weekends event and my commendation pack contained a N7 Valiant III so I'm pretty stoked to use it in game. I'll be pretty much playing bronze to get my classes up to level 16-18 before going back to silver.

Mental Focuser Gear sounds awesome for my Adept! O_O

All I unlocked so far was an SMG gear item that adds +5% dmg.
