Prioritize the objective during waves 3+6 over killing enemies, they don't stop spawning until you finish them. Don't go to the extraction point until the last ~20 seconds - you want to try to draw enemies away and give yourself room to move. In general, don't let yourself tunnel- stay mobile and always have a retreat path.


On the classes front, the Asari adept seems utterly amazing- annihilation field with radius+damage amp+shield restore is an amazing force multiplier for your group.

Storm On The Sea Of Galilee, it's called, and he's in it. Old Rembrandt, he's in the painting. He's in there, right in the middle of the storm, looking straight at you. But... you can't see him. And the reason you can't see him is because the painting has been stolen.

Multiplayer is great, definitely scratching that ME3 multiplayer itch.

Only thing really bothering me are those giant pouncing animals that literally don't make a sound.

Edit: It also really sucks using exp boosters and getting put into an already in progress failing group.

Respecs are really easy to get now I think, unless there's some escalating cost. It's 15 mission funds and you can get 40 or so a day playing the phone game, or 30 a day just doing the apex missions in multiplayer.

Anyone what wants to add me on the PS4 as well, my PSN is the same there as it is here I said in the last thread, but I should repeat it here.

Yeah I had a group of pubs who just... completely loving ignored the things we were supposed to deactivate. None of them even tried to do said objective, and when I died trying to deactivate it (because I was by myself, because no one came with me ) no one came to revive me. At least we were on wave 6 at the time so we managed to get away with a little money anyway.

They way they moved and acted I think they sincerely thought "we can just kill all the mobs and *then* do the objective!" Yeah, it... it doesn't work like that.

So, what I thought was a goon ME3 discord server is apparently a reddit one or something, and has all sorts of crazy roles and channels and makes you agreed to a ruleset before you can join voice chat and poo poo, so I've set up a goon one here:

Equipment was apparently just off during the trial, but is purchasable with mission funds in the Item Store tab of the shop. There's only 2 of the 6 available right now for me, spare Thermal Clips for 70 and a Juggernaut Shield (Shield HP and Melee Damage) for 120. Save your mission funds!

Apex missions can be done with a team so its a good idea to add each other to get those done and get those sweet free rewards.

Oh and RUN THE gently caress AWAY FROM THE ASCENDANT IF HES GOT HIS SHIELD UP, he will one shot your rear end if he gets within range.

I heard rumblings that sync kills would now only happen if you were below a certain health/shield. Has anyone had a chance to test this?

I don't know about this, but all the sync kills have telegraphs now- the ascendant puts up an orange ring around you, for example. The Remnant don't have any at all as far as I can tell.

Shotgun reviews:

Disciple: 4 ammo, 24 in clips, hits like a truck still.

Hesh: 10 ammo, 20 in clips, fires much faster, does about 1/2 the damage of the Disciple and you're always out of ammo.

The length of rounds feels a lot better to me. Just two normal waves between an objective and then leaving after only two objectives keeps things more interesting.

Two Finger posted:

Either I've been paying no attention to my health and shields or it's total bullshit. I just had another ascendant instantly snap next to me from and trigger a sync kill at the same time out of nowhere, in a relatively low-lag game. I was chilling out a fair distance away with full health and nearly full shields. if I meet the person who was responsible for that mechanic not only coming back but somehow being worse this time around, only one of us is walking out of the room intact, unless they are nice to me

I played ME3 multiplayer obsessively non-stop for eighteen months or something. I've been really looking forward to this but first impressions are... I'm not sure. I want to love it but it's not love at first sight.

Also, did the multiplayer servers just poo poo the bed? I was in the middle of a mission and got disconnected, can't get back in.

Napkin math from the discord:

Going from a level 1 to level 10 weapon appears to add:

25% Damage
25% Accuracy
25% Reserve Ammo
-50% Weight

Only checked it on some pistols, so there's a chance it's different for different weapon types, but unlikely. ME3 was just damage and weight, so the spare ammo and the accuracy boost is pretty nice.
