Challenge completed. Hard as coffin nails though (still likely to be run again though for those who are for it). Fundamentally the team was loaded up with APIII. 2 Sentinels 2 Soldiers and the strategy was to reduce the banshees barriers down using warp and funnel them into a kill zone at the top above the ramp where the prox mines/concussive shots and close range weapons could take them down before the rest of the horde could really overwhelm us. On the whole the strategy worked pretty well though we had a couple of Banshee OHKs due to the sticky nature of the geometry. As ever with gold fortune favoured us with the objectives to some degree. The first being delivery, second targets and third holding an area (which required some judicious use of rockets), but on the whole went far smoother than we expected for a wave 10 assignment.

Congratulations guys. When can we expect a video? :)

Bootch is the video master. I believe he's working on the Geth infiltrator murder machine one presently so Turian gold might be a while. plus he'll no doubt be looking for some suitably sombre Turian tunes to go with it.

Challenge video forthcoming.
Next week's challenge? I say either "EXPLOSIONS! EXPLOSIONS! EXPLOSIONS!" (Falcon/Scorpion, Human Soldier, Geth Gold Run) or "FACE STABBING FUN!" (Vorcha Melee, Cerberus Gold, Melee and Grab Gold medals for everyone).

Glad you guys made it! I missed this one, but I will be there for the next one. Melee or 'splosions sounds fun!

Ha, great stuff! Nice tunes choices man.
Wasn't chuffed with my Phaeston locking up on round 9 with Banshees everywhere - think I'd gone down whilst pulling or priming my launcher and it glitched, only letting me fire one shot at a time then. When it did eventually let me switch back to launcher it fixed itself after firing, before the wave 10 hack thankfully.
"cursing alot means you might not make it" - lol.

I'm tempted to just make a remix video of Kad saying nothing but "Fuck/Shit/Nice/Toast".

Anyhows I must admit watching the video I thought it all went surprisingly smoothly, even with weapon malfunctions. Could of sworn wave 6 was targets, but I guess that might of been on the earlier test run. Sticking together on the high ground paid dividends both in getting people back into the action fast and reducing the artillery fire of the ravagers. Extraction didn't quite go as planned, however coming up through the pocket and between the platform and vehicles (beside ravager cockblockers) wasn't too bad a solution given it afforded some degree of cover from everything else.
I know a few people wanted to get this one Bootch, so it might be an idea to run it again over the weekend, though as I'm away you'll have to take over swearing duties.

I'm happy to take up swearing duties, especially against Reapers.

Fair enough, I can do another round of Turian crazies Saturday evening for you European folks.

And yeah, I need to get in on that turian gold run. Anything to stamp down the foul prejudice against turian soldiers.
You know, I hear they get monkey chants in the Ukraine and Poland.

Also might be an idea to add some appropriate tags so it gets Youtube hits (mass effect 3, turian, etc, etc). Also delete my first comment as I always get shields and barriers confused (not enough morning caffeine).
one day, we should just do an all swearing gold. No comms without a swear. It really shouldn't be that hard.
In a firefight, you want a man who can shoot and eat toast.
Also Bootch you can adjust the size+ position of the overlay in mumble under configure/settings/overlay. Might want to adjust it down for future videos, or just turn it off (presently no direct shortcut for that though, however again can be done under settings). As it's a little distracting.

I keep the overlay so that it's only people who are talking that are displayed. Changed it to that after my first ARPS session and haven't changed back.
In other news, I now have Fraps and a youtube account that matches my username. Expect me messing about with Fraps in future matches.

Also might be useful for regulars to add their forum avatars, which you can do under menu/self.

Awesome vid Bootcha. Now I'm just waiting for the Geth murder spree one ;) And the Asari one too...where you should include ALL the curses and toasts :P

Albeit we started off well kicking ass when the engineers starting piling on and the turrets started going down then it became problematic. Also I think we were a little too spread out and so people weren't in a position to take advantage of biotic explosions as much as they could. I think 2 adepts geared for warp/statis (Vs justicar) and 2 vanguard is probably the way to go and trying to hold the labs, upper floor with Carnifex and (maybe) eviscerators loaded with APIII for maximum Atlas/turret takedown. lone wolf patrolling is just asking to be gunned down by a distant turret/highjacked from behind by a phantom and the Asari are just too squishy for their own good in those sort of situations.
The real fun will be an all Drell offworld kicksquad taking on Cerberus on gold at some point. :)

Republic Commando tunes! Nostalgia! Great job guys.
I'm impressed you put the Raptor to some good use, I've yet to find a role for it.
