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.

People in the discord are saying origin went down just now, so probably. It's because they're preparing a big apology to me for the sync kills.

If there's lag it's probably because today a giant AAA release launched and people are home from work.

I will buy Plat for the first person to demonstrate a case for that gun. The Avenger is more effective by a long shot.

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.

Naw, ME3MP gun advances gave you extra ammo in the clip, pretty sure it was also extra reserve ammo. This is why it was imperative to get a Harrier to extra ranks as fast as possible, base damage was fine, base ammo was dire.

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!

I haven't played this yet, have been playing strike teams in the Apex HQ app. Can anyone explain mission equipment to me?

The app shows lots of equipment available to boost strike teams through purchase, I assume this stuff is permanent given how expensive it is. I also assume it only boosts the app strike teams.

The missions tab also shows when I scroll down the Thermal Clips and Juggernaut items mentioned above at the listed costs. Are these something you buy to boost your MP characters? Kind of like the gear from ME3 MP?

And mission funds are earnable both through the app and MP? I feel like there's a big effort post to be written about the app strike teams, it seems like some of their equipment options must be intended to especially nullify some of the difficulty modifiers on those missions, but if you click on them they just list +effectiveness numbers, and some of the mid price generic options (like the vehicle) provide much bigger +effectiveness numbers than the most technical sounding ones that probably match up against specific modifiers.

It is harder, largely due to how much more aggressive the enemies are.

Like I'm not joking about the Cyclone. The thing loving blows.
The Tempest Charger outscores it in every category except rate of fire which is so close that it might as well not matter, and is a third of the weight.
The Avenger outdamages it and has far better accuracy and weight. In what universe do you decrease a weapon's accuracy AND damage AND weight and give it a bigger clip size to compensate? It's a piece of poo poo even if it does have a ROF advantage.
And that's just numbers, not counting its stupid spin-up time.

Eh I'm comparing an Avenger IX to a Cyclone I but gently caress, it's still poo poo, the Avenger doesn't get THAT much better by upgrades.

The switch from hard to soft cover is throwing me off and amplifying my inner baddie in multiplayer. I also have to find a key set that I am comfortable with since you've got things spread out now for sprint, evade, and tumble over cover.

It's me I'm the newb.

Being in cover also restores your shield faster as well, important thing to remember.

you said "drop kick" fyi


Ascendant sync kills are the ones people should complain least about. You can actually dodge out of it before you get synced because there's a huge tell it's about to happen to you, at least from what I've noticed: the ground around you glows kinda orange and if you're still in it when it triggers, you get grabbed. There is definitely enough time to dash out, but the timing is really tight and you might not notice the orange in the heat of battle.

Silver is goddamn brutal. Don't even know what will happen in gold. Basic shooty enemies are most dangerous by far - they will melt you while big scary things flop around the map with their gimmick jumps and telegraphed attacks.
And holy hell, the bullet sponges. A Chosen on silver takes 80% of a Mattock magazine to put down, with most hits being headshots.
So far the only way to do silver drops I've found is rolling at least two Vanguards.
Biotic and Tech explosions are underwhelming too. A huge blast of blue space magic sends enemies flying but deals a grand total of 20% health damage.
