Cerberus has always been considered the easiest faction and while the addition of dragoons was supposed to abate that I wouldn't be surprised if bioware have tweaked the spawns to buff them further. I remember a dev once saying phantoms were the "most perfectly balanced enemy in the game".

Yea, the wonkiest unit with a ridiculously powerful gun and a super sword made out of some mutant metal is perfectly balanced.

And poo poo new DLC, BUT I'M NOT DONE WITH MY MANIFEST YET.

Guess I'll just hoard credits for awhile, hopefully I can get one of these dudes or some of the guns.

quote:

As usual, Bioware France reveals the operation before the Bioware Blog.
This will appear here in the Bioware Blog.

It seems to be a tribute to Robin Sachs. Awesome, BioWare!

Googletranslated, for your viewing pleasure:

Event Description: A surprise attack of the Reapers has hit our team N7 and interrupted supplies of many planets. Many of our units can not rely on their handguns and ammunition. We must honor the memory of our fallen comrades - and show the Reapers that their victory was a mistake.

Individual Goal: Two goals are needed:
1) Earn 50,000 points using the M-8 Avenger.
2) Earn 50,000 points using grenades Inferno.

Reward: Reward Package


In french:

Description de l’événement: Une attaque surprise de Moissoneurs a durement touché notre équipe du N7 et interrompu les approvisionnements de nombreuses planètes. Beaucoup de nos unités ne pourront compter que sur leurs armes de poing et leurs munitions. Nous devons honorer la mémoire de nos camarades tombés au combat – et montrer aux Moissoneurs que leur victoire était en fait une erreur.

Objectif individuel: Deux objectifs sont nécessaires:
1) Gagner 50.000 points en utilisant le M-8 Avenger.
2) Gagner 50.000 points en utilisant des grenades Inferno.

Récompense: Paquet de récompense

RIP Zaeed. I will toss many grenades for you and get rewarded this time.

Looks like it's just kits and items, so maybe they're doing the weekly release schedule again.

Had it, lost it.

If after putting in Dr. Sexbot as an MP kit they don't add any new Salarians I will be rather disappointed.

But not enough to stop me being super excited about the Geth Juggernaut and those new weapons. No new maps though? Kinda surprising. Though I'd take some more hazards. [edit: Well that got ruled out too I guess.]

Anyone who wants to farm some credits on XBL, my gt is dub zomby. Down for Plat, especially Cerbs Glacier and Reaper Giant speed runs. Will even help you box farm on Rio if you want. Also happy to do Gold. Unfortunately no mic and I'm on GMT.

They probably could but at some point the DLC limitations probably get too frustrating. I'd like to see more DLC but I'm also eager to see what Montreal can do with the whole franchise.

The post sure makes it sounds like the last one, giving the fans a fitting send off with "two final pieces of DLC."

Complaining about EDI's model being in the game doesn't really make sense considering all but one of the Asaris literally use the "Asari stripper" game model.

Plus I bet it will have cool/unique powers.

And I'm sure you can put racing stripes on it.

Wait, what's the complaint again?

Kind of weird they just said "and more" instead of what all the new kits would be. There have to be Salarians. There have to, drat it. Especially since the Venom is a Salarian gun!

It was a typo. They changed it to AR ultralight materials.

Seeing as this is officially the end of the line I wonder when they'll say 'gently caress it' and raise the missile/medi-gel/ops pack/thermal clip capacities to ten. Might as well fill the item pool with as much stuff as possible at this point.

Since this is the last DLC I am also guessing that they'll do what they did on the Wii U port and put the promo guns in the ultra-rare pool. Which will be the first time I ever see a Valkyrie!

Looks like it has the built-in scope like it did in ME1.

Does this mean it's going to be an Avenger with the old cooldown system? THE POSSIBILITIES
nvm, took another look, just looks like an Avenger scaled to Juggernaut size.

but if it WAS the Lancer, and it used the cooldown system, would there be anything else to separate it from the Avenger?

Can I complain about both?

I mean I'm not too keen on the fact that 4 of the Asari look identical and that you have to be careful when choosing colours so it doesn't look like they're running round with bare bums doesn't really help.

From that picture of EDIAIU though it does look like there has been a bit of a reskin with more armour so it might not be a problem.

Geth Spitfire should be cool. From my memory of SP it's something like a cross between the Typhoon and GPSMG?
