    I played with a guy the other day who was insulted that my KroSent headbutted him after every round

    on that same gold match I mentioned earlier

    I was dead last on the score

    but I was always the last one alive, there to pick up their sorry asses

    score doesn't mean everything

    Doobh on

    I know it makes me angry when people focus down the enemies I'm trying to Biotic Combo on

    Because a combo does a lot of damage to everything in the area and makes the fight easier for everyone

    I think my anger is justified

    It's like they see the Warp animation and go "oh look, now that he's all lit up I'll see how many headshots I can get!"

    but warp also increases the damage an enemy takes from all other sources

    so it's pretty natural to target them when they're lit up

    I've specced my sentinel to maximize this

    didn't even pick-up throw

    figure my teammates can provide all the biotic explosions

    That's only if you take that evolution though

    Why should I carry these moochers on my back when I can set an example for them to aspire to by taking all damage, all the time

    That's why I don't mind when it's a Geth Prime or something, because even the combo probably won't kill it

    But on something like a Marauder or a Geth Pyro, the taking additional damage is mostly secondary and the biotic combo alone could finish off the enemy and damage a bunch of his friends.

    my roommate was playing a gold game last night with the salarian infiltrator

    he was usually good at getting to people if they were down and i think had to pick up the pieces once after everyone but him wiped

    and finally everyone wiped on like round 7 or 8 or something

    and the first thing someone does when they lobby loads back up is try to kick him

    i don't........get.......

    that's why I love energy drain. instant, can't be dodged, fast cooldown, refills my shields, stuns most enemies, absolutely wrecks Geth, can detonate any biotic or tech combo.

    finally unlocked Paladin II - digging it more than Carnifex now, don't really miss the cooldown, though the ammo thing is still an issue, just have to be more selective with shots, and always try for headshots, and use tech powers instead when they are called for. putting Disruptor ammo on a Paladin on Engineer is just ridiculous vs Geth.

    Energy Drain cannot detonate biotic combos. It can only do tech combos.

    Yeah, especially if there's biotic combos going off, scores can be totally silly.

    Like I had a match where I was setting up combos and another adept was detonating, and he got all the points from all the kills. So he ended the round with like 100,000+ points, but he wasn't really doing anything I wasn't doing.

    And it's not like you get bonus points for "saving the whole team with a well-placed sabotage" or "being really good at sneaking around and reviving people"

    A trap is for fish: when you've got the fish, you can forget the trap. A snare is for rabbits: when you've got the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words are for meaning: when you've got the meaning, you can forget the words.

    I don't criticize low scoring (unless its super low) and I don't necessarily care if I get the high score but I certainly understand satisfaction from doing massive damage and getting the kill.

    The best team dubstep is when the score spread between the high scores and the low scores is about 20K

    everybody with at least 120K points

    I am the snake-eyes of pubbing mass effect 3 multiplayer

    oh jeez i was playing cerberus white gold the other day with my claymore geth infiltrator

    and these two dudes were just talking up a storm blah blah blah some jazz about asari adepts and how good they are i dunno

    and one of them was trying to bark orders at me apparently not realizing that i had more than double the amount of points either of them had

    Strangers barking orders at me is my number one fucking hate. I don't mind directions from people I know, or suggestions if I'm obviously new at something - I always make sure to let people know if I am - but some pubby trying to pull rank on me and telling me what to do drives me up the wall.

    Like, a couple of weeks ago I ended up in a huge argument with some random guy who the other players were fawning over because he had a 2k N7 rating, because he kept telling me what to do. It's like, dude, I've done this a thousand times before. I know what I'm doing. You're just being obnoxious.

    I probably should have dropped out, but I will admit to a certain amount of satisfaction when at the end of wave 10 he was barking orders at people. "No, don't stand there. Follow me into the other room." Beat. "Go where Legba is standing."

    An N7 rating means nothing as far as player skill goes. You could have been playing the game for hours daily since the demo came out and still have an N7 rating of 80. 20, even! It's the worst form of epeen.

    Okay, ranting mode over. I actually do like this game, guys.

    Curly's rating is 180

    mine is like 380

    I'm pretty goddamn sure he's a better player than I am

    Yeah, exactly. I actually think N7 rating is a net negative in the game, because all it means is "this guy has advanced his classes a whole lot". But having a 2-3k sure looks impressive, and it leads to situations where people will either a) fawn over people with a high rating and b) look down on people with low ratings.

    If you're around 80, I figure you've played enough to know how other classes handle and can handle yourself in silver. Maybe or maybe not in gold, but I'll see how in the actual game. I won't kick the N7 40 at level 20 going into a gold game, but I'll look somewhat askance at it.

    Unless they're walking in with a Widow I and a Revenant I on their Vanguard.
