    The Mass Effect 3 multiplayer thread where you are not allowed to ruin and can live in peace that the campaign won't be spoiled here. Also makes it easier for all of us having one central place to organise gaming sessions.


    I'm currently sporting a Level 12 Soldier "Battlefield 3" Character, and after just 4 games I'm starting to find my groove.

    Any one else up for some games?

    Anyone else like what the Multiplayer offers? Loot?

    I just got a Vindicator on my Quarian Infiltrator. Kicks so much ass.

    Anyone else having trouble with the Vanguard class? I think its hard to use. Hit me up on XBL if you wanna play, AngryNacho9000 is my GT.

    Are there any punishments for changing character? Do I lose progression on my Soldier or is not that harsh?

    Carnage is such a beast of an ability, I don't think I could do without it and it's homing rocket of space death.

    yay just unlocked the Turian Sentinel...ANy good ?

    The soldier is now a lv 16.

    Question! Once the character has maxed out all powers, frag grenedes, fitness etc etc...I wont get any more benefits from leveling up my character right? Since you have no place to put the points you get. Is this correct.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS THREAD!

    I've been wanting to discuss multiplayer but have stayed away from the official thread because there are people there who seem to genuinely want to ruin the story for everyone.

    Do certain conditions in multiplayer have an impact on the story in single player?

    Asari Adept, Stasis Bubble, Carnifex Pistol w/ Scope.
    Quarian Infiltrator is also good.

    You all know I'm up for MP anytime.

    It ups you "battle readiness" percentage, giving you a better chance at a better endding

    Its ssurprisingly easy to get your percentage up. Only takes just a few games to get it up to like 100% but it does constantly degrade so you have to keep playing to keep it up

    Nifty shtuff

    Thanks, guys.
    I know I could have looked that stuff up, but I would ponder suicide if I accidentally spoiled any of the campaign for myself.

    Yep.

    A 10 wave survival mode. Where each player chooses a class with set abilities. You can equip one use items to make the harder difficulties approachable, like giving yourself warp ammo etc

    I'd really like to play as a Vanguard, but combat with that class was frustrating until about level 20 then very rewarding.

    It's gonna be hard to start at level zero again.

    Shit......so you have to play multiplayer to get the better ending. Crap....I suck so bad at multiplayer lol. I feel like I'm letting the other people down. But on the other hand, I love hearing the rage that the MW: COD babies spew when you get them killed lol

    The races all level up together as a class. If you start as a human male Engineer and then swith to a Quarian Engineer, that Quarian will be the same level as the Human Male. Classes level individually and you don't lose anything if you switch classes or races.

    I don't think it's possible to max everything out. I think one skill won't be maxed. Max level is 20. At 20 you can reset/promote that class, which gives you war assets in single player and gives you another 10 points to your N7 rating.

    Stay in cover and play like a soldier early on, use the charge on enemies that are alone. I focused on maxing Biotic charge out first, but still put some points into health/shields on the way. Maxed biotic charge gives a full shield when you hit someone with it. I also focused on making my melee stronger, I can charge and and then 1 hit strong melee kill most shielded enemies at around level 10. It takes a while but with maxed charge I can solo an Atlas, even with other enemies focused on me. I also use just the base SMG, once it levels up it does good damage (and thermal clips mod gives it tons of ammo before needing to reload) but it's light enough to have 200% recharge speed.

    During the demo I only played as the Human Vanguard and left one of the skills empty and rarely used Shockwave. I unlocked a Drell Vanguard, which has biotic grenades. Biotic Grenades murder Guardians but are hard to toss accurate.

    I have a level 12ish BF3 Soldier and a Drell Vanguard (level 14-16, can't remember). No one likes the Vanguard (I get called a lot of names now), he's a beast on Bronze/Silver but kind of useless on Gold. Some of the other classes are leveled up from getting character cards.
