    Anybody know if the Nova rank 5 recharge reduction can take you above +200%?

    I'm considering a respec and I'm curious if I can start running with a heavier loadout. Most fights don't last 15 seconds anyway.

    So, what's this about promotion for the weekend event? I've got my Engineer team ready to go (all 4 unlocked, class sitting at Lvl 20).

    When you assholes stop sniping our perfectly lined up and timed detonation victims, we'll stop spamming the biotics.

    Deal?

    Seriously, if there are other targets, don't shoot the floating guy, the blue glowy guy, or the guy stuck in stasis. They're not there to give you target practice, they're there to explode and kill their friends.

    Sissy infiltrators and their sissy sniper rifles. *sniff*


    Come to think of it, I do throw pretty much constantly if I'm playing a sentinel and don't see a juicy target for a warp bomb. Throw throw throw throw throw throw throw. Geth? Throw. Wall? Throw. Brute? WARP THROW WARP THROW WARP THROW. Throw. Throw throw throw. Funny light in the sky? Throw. Bored? Throw. Team mate? Heavy melee.

    So burned out on this game right now. It's been so long since I've unlocked anything meaningful for multiplayer. I thought I would love the pack method of unlocks but I can't stand it now. I have triple the N7 rank than some of these players and they have a Widow III or a Black Widow. I just want a heavy sniper rifle. Please stop giving me SMG upgrades. Every spectre pack is a kick to the gonads.

    I'm just not having fun anymore. I need to take a break. I'd play single player, but I lost my saves from the last two games when my hard drive died (xbox). I played ME1 for an hour before I gave up, it's too much game and its not that fun anymore.

    I wish infiltrators could just take a hint. Adepts are more than capable of head-shotting stasis targets without help. That, or blowing them up. Not that it's bad if an infiltrator is just casually following an Adept around issuing instant death to all stasis targets, but they're not diligent enough to actually do that... so frag off cloaky mcgee.

    Although it is amusing to think of an Adept going around freezing targets for a sniper. Headsploading all day.

    http://www.masseffect2saves.com/ They also have ME1 saves and have pretty much every configuration you can think of if you want to continue your lost save. Assuming you remember your choices of course. Well worth it if the first game doesn't appeal to you I think.

    I'm not complaining about hitting the enemy. I try to avoid targets that look like explosion bait, unless it looks like I can hit multiples with one shot. (I tend to use penetration weapons.)

    I'm complaining about intentionally missing throw so it impacts right next to the sniper in question, and doing it over and over and over and over, while there are bad guys around that SOMEONE COULD BE KILLING.

    Yeah, I was gonna say, he seems pretty well integrated into the main game. Not like Kasumi or Zaeed in ME2. He has lots of stuff to say for the main missions, especially Thessia. And of course there's several convos in his quarters you can have. I think they did a pretty good job w/ him. So good I wish there was more.

    Javik helps reinforce some of the themes as well.

    The idea of cyclical development and cyclical problems in particular.

    So I have some things to say. It's probably going to be a long post and it is kinda meta so I'll just go ahead and spoiler the whole thing and you can ignore it if you want. A lot of it results from seeing a lot of discussion today (and in the past) about the idea of the ending of the game retroactively damaging the whole series (for some people).

    It is moderately in line with a post I made a few weeks ago right after beating the game toward people who kept claiming "nothing you did mattered" which you can read here if you're interested

    Probably since then I went a bit overboard in my dislike of the ending, but thinking about it a lot more today and yesterday I think I've finally just narrowed down what I don't like to the final part of the ending, and less because of what actually happened, and more because of how poorly it was setup and how it was so badly executed. It could have been a perfectly valid ending, it just needed expanded upon considerably and I hope that happens with whatever they announce next month.

    Anyway, moving back to the actual topic of this post:
    Spoiler:

    So yeah...that was super long. And quite a bit overblown on my part but hey, whatever. :P

    On bronze there's a good chance that every shot that Infiltrator tried to take was messed up by 2 vanguards smacking everything around. I know there helpful but sometimes it really gets annoying.

    yea... that probably wouldn't have played out like that on silver or better, especially given the levels of everybody.

    I got a Black Widow and a Salarian Infiltrator yesterday. The RNG really wants me to become a sniper. :|

    Hah, it's the opposite of me--three Salarian Infiltrators, no goddamn sniper rifles. Ever. The RNG wants me to suffer.

    I cant get an infiltrator card (all other classes fully unlocked) for my life after a mp data wipe.

    Which is still happening to people even though bioware says it is not. They are lying.

    They don't like us. And we were quiet about the ending!

    I got a Discipline Asari shotgun out of the Spectre pack I bought...I think I got screwed. I think. Time to buy a few more and get even worse shit, like four more Salarian infiltrators and a N7 vacuum with attachments.

    And for what they said about being mostly focused on Reapers, Protheans play a large part in this game if only because they were the last cycle.

    - Damage increased from [795.0-993.7] to [1030.5-1288.1]
    - Encumbrance increased from [2.5-2.0] to [3.0-2.4]
    - Max spare ammo decreased from [9-19] to [5-15]

    That is a big-ass damage increase.

    Unless I'm remembering wrong, Kasumi and Zaeed said just as much during missions as everyone else did.

    Heck, even on the ship they probably had more stuff to say than a non-romanced Thane or Garrus. You just didn't get a conversation wheel with them when they were talking.

    That and he's written to be the ULTRA non-synthetic. To contrast with the Reapers.
    Spoiler:

    Which is probably why they were the ones to break the cycle. Well... break this cycle. Basically, we'd all be Reaper food without the Protheans.

    Oh, I know. It's just nice, is all. Put AP ammo or Warp Ammo on that bad boy and It'd be hilarious how fast it could kill Brutes or de-shielded Atlases/Banshees
