[Mass Effect] Geth White Gold, The Game

Welcome, N7 Special Ops Team. Your assignments will be distributed shortly, although I'm not sure why we're handing them out secretly since this is what you'll be seeing for the following 4 years of your tour of duty:

This one room is of prime importance in our battle against the reapers. The console next to the door contains valuable information which could turn the tide of this war against the Reapers in our favor. Strangely, the Geth have taken an unusual interest in this console as well, though the base itself has little to do with them, being a Cerberus base originally.

Here are some more images of what you will be seeing 99% of the time you are on duty in the Alliance Navy:

Please ignore any Cerberus units you see in this photograph. The photo is obsolete, as only Geth currently attack this location.

To make certain you are properly equipped for Firebase White Geth missions, it is standard Alliance protocol to be a total dick to anybody desiring to assist in the defense of this location other than Salarian and/or Human Engineers, Turian Sentinels, or an Infiltrator class. Level 20 Adepts are expected to fuck right the hell off of Noveria.

All soldiers should be equipped with the best we have to offer:

The N7 Eagle is the pride of the Systems Alliance Navy. Treat her well and she'll spit out damage at a rate that's almost as good as a regular Predator.

Now get out there and show the Reaper menace what you're made of, N7 Special Ops. Show them on Firebase White, against the Geth.

Oh and also: obligatory Mom Effect link.

    I do too, when I'm allowed to play

    most of the time I'm kicked from the room before I can even say anything into the mic

    Added Mom Effect to the OP, and I feel bad for having to edit it in instead of remembering to do so in the first place

    You know, I did have some people try to kick me randomly the other day. They weren't on mics so I had no idea what was going on, but that might have been it. It was just weird.

    That sucks. I got all my Krogans at once, from regular Spectre packs. After I blew a ton of cash on Premiums.

    Krogan are great though. I haven't found a way to make them super viable on Gold, but for Silver they're unstoppable. And a hell of a lot of fun to play.

    it really does piss me off to get booted from GWG when there's already two infiltrators and an engineer because I wreck shit with my Batsoldier, especially when I put on armor piercing, which I always do, you jackasses

    the room is ten feet long a shotgun and blades are all I need

    The only class I'm missing now is the geth engineer. And it never drops.

    Yeah, I don't get the logic at all. A Drell Vanguard specced for Baking could get through GWG when there's already an engineer and two infiltrators.

    it's because their little peanut brains have equated "you need an engineer and an infiltrator" to "only bring engineers and infiltrators"

    dogs are capable of more nuance

    If anything, the only trouble I've had with GWG is when there are two infiltrators, because they tend to both run for the objectives, leaving two guys struggling to hold the base.

    The other day I was getting abuse from some guy when I suggested that we should be totally fine without a salarian engineer. He kept insisting we'd wipe and I was just sitting there thinking "what? I've done it dozens of times."

    i just

    i don't get how some pubbies don't understand basic tactics. like flanking an enemy. or that the enemy can flank you.

    i also keep getting into games where there's a kroguard who loves to run to the opposite side of a map, believe he's going to take out every single enemy, and get dropped way behind enemy lines where no one can reach him.

    Whenever I go nuts with my krogan (usually on bronze, rarely silver never gold)

    I don't expect people to pick me up when I fall over a mile away from the group like a dick

    same for playing vanguard

    If some are just chatting I'll generally just turn the volume way down and listen to the radio or something. I hear enough strangers nattering about bullshit on the bus.

    If I get into a room where people are chatting over the mic about nonsense I generally just leave the room ASAP

    It doesn't need to be all business, but more often than not those people are blabbing on about stuff that doesn't matter, taking up the comm channel while I'm getting raped by hunters

    clearly, they are trying to molest me

    Counterpoint: About half my friends list on XBL is filled with random strangers I talked to and got along well with. In fact, I don't put anyone on my friends list unless I've talked to them and thought they were cool.

    i usually don't talk to pubs but unless they're being particularly annoying i don't mute them

    sometimes they'll give decent info as to where enemies are

    usually in the form of "oh shit phantom on me phantom on me what the FUCK"

    when I go pubbing I put myself in a secret invite-only xbox live party so I won't hear any pubbies talk

    sometimes I put my mic into the controller but don't actually wear it so it looks like I am participating in the atmosphere of communication

    sometimes I'll be in groups where everybody else is talking in game chat in the lobby, their little mic icons indicating sound and all

    and mine will be redded out

    and then we'll go into the match and I will get the highest score
    I am the snake-eyes of pubbing mass effect 3 multiplayer

    ive had a couple pubbies lately on gwg take it on themselves to stick by the staircase to the upper room to hold off the enemies and presumably get all of the points

    usually some sort of krogan

    it's like dudes we can kill them way faster if they funnel into line of sight for all of us

    and then they drop halfway into round four and bitch when no one saves them from the five pyros they tried to melee

    people who are out for themselves kill me

    it's like

    homeboy

    we all get the same points

    and there's no record of your High Score anywhere

    you are doing this to prove how good you are to three people who don't care and then you die
