    The points get split evenly between everyone at the end so it doesn't matter who earns them.

    Apologies for ignoring a message from someone last night, I'd left the game loaded while watching The Apprentice.

    Fired?

    Points for victory are shared but kills and badges (assists, kills, headshot etc,and I think hack points) are not shared with others.

    I promoted my vanguard, which i played in bronze and Silver. I loved it. It's also my main class in the campaign.

    I tried a soldier, but i suck at it. No way to regen shields is really difficult for me to grasp + I am not used to actually use weaponry. So I stopped trying and took a human sentinel. So far I love the combination of warp+Throw.

    Should I use tech armor or is the impact on the cooldown to heavy ? If not, is the adept better ?

    So, armour piercing mods don't do what I thought. They're actually very good. The description makes it sound like you're gaining armour piercing at the expense of damage. But, no, what it means is you pierce armour then deal the stated damage, whereas a normal bullet hits the armour and deals none at all. If there's no armour to pierce then you deal damage as normal. Armour in this case refers to guardian shields, metal plates on cannibals, etc. For the yellow armour bar, you get bonus damage.

    Maybe I'm the only one who didn't realise.

    See the argument on the previous page.

    I find it very useful, but your mileage may vary.

    Thanks, just read what you two guys said about it. Will probably try to get the Force power in it to compensate the CD speed reduction.

    I like it a lot on the Krogan, I basically ignored incinerate so that the only other power I use is grenades which don't use a power cool down. this means you can give yourself an extremely heavy load-out without affecting how he plays. I basically use him as a sweeper/tank, using my Carnifex heavy pistol at range, switching to a shotgun and melee to kill off any treats that get too close to the group.

    Although on bronze, I just charge around like a big invincible meatsack punching things, because it feels like that's what a Krogan should do.
    I write about them video games at these locations

    And on Twitter

    Yeah, had a lovely quick game on silver today where everyone stuck together, for the first time it felt like my decoy was really working, I saved the day at one point by rocket-launching one target with 10 seconds left, got a bit overwhelmed at the end but managed a lone extraction. Bought a Premium Spectre Pack and got me the Asari Adept, which is awesome. Now away for the bank holiday though so won't get to try it out until Monday.

    Ah that's a shame, you'll miss Operation Beachhead! And the rumour I posted on the Mass Effect 3 Endings turns out to be right, Batarians (and Asari Justicars, which is a bit weird) are IN! (although not this weekend, it should be noted.)

    What really pisses me off is those frequent disconnections. I don't count how many times I get disconnected in waves 8-10 or even during extraction...

    but still... free DLC right?

    Forgot to mention: Had a really grand time with Tail last night, sorry to Bootcha and Cocyx for turning them down (there really should be eight player matches), where we had four silver matches, in which we only won twice, and lost twice at the tenth wave. After getting promoted to level 20 for my drell adept, we decided to go on gold, and made bets for how long we'd last. Surprisingly, Tail bet at 3, I bet 4, but we actually made it to 6!

    Im sure with just a bit more communication, it would have all worked out somehow, and we would have made it farther.

    So tail/soon, get yourself a mic, its time to comm up :D

    (obviously to all that are interested as well)

    Could almost sense the uncertainty in the lobby when it switched.

    Thats true, but only because there is no fucking lobby chat. This makes no sense.

    There's no chat at all. I find this to be a design flaw.

    well, I find chatting with friends over the origin interface to be quite satisfactory, but it is severely lacking multiple user support.

    I'm so making a Geth Infiltrator, painting him black, giving him plasma shotgun and decloacking near teammates in randoms.
