IMPORTANT MESSAGE ON PURCHASING PACKS:

Just a heads up:
There's a bug in the store which can completely wipe out everything you've unlocked - all characters, weapons, and items. The most common way this happens appears to be readying for a game in the lobby, then accessing the store. However, there have been reports of it happening from any store access, so there might not be any surefire way to avoid the bug.

So far, the only response from BioWare is that they're investigating the issue. I haven't contacted customer support, but reports from those who have seem to indicate that there will be no reimbursements, even for those who spent real money on packs.

This thread is for the multiplayer component of Mass Effect 3. It is here now the demo, which has a multiplayer option, and will stick around once the full game is out.
Single player discussion of the demo or main game should be taken to this thread, as this thread is to remain free of single player spoilers.
Otherwise have fun, quit yer bitching, don't read Deception (read this instead), and no Homers.





If you want to make buddies, give your GAF name and your PSN/LIVE/Origin ID. Later we can list preferable class/species/whatever.

I've created an Xbox Live gamertag for 360 owners here to simply add and view the friends list to join/invite the session of other gaffers.

Fascinating that Turians can't be Infiltrators, seeing as that's the class that most approximates Garrus's class (hybrid Tech/Soldier).

Good idea to have a separate thread. I'll give the multiplayer portion a try tomorrow and see what it's like.

I'm going to roll with a Drell vanguard.

Species/class selection is pretty backwards. Ideally it would be as simple as selecting which species you want to be, what class, and then a load out, and being able to save these 'characters' into slots.

Instead it works like a weird unlock ranking system. You select the class first, then the race you have unlocked, hence why not all races are playable for all classes.

It's weird and silly. Hopefully they change it.

I dunno, it makes sense to me seeing that humans are the only race to be able to play ANY class. We knew there was going to be some sort of unlocking/ranking up/RPG element to the MP component, so it makes sense that humans are the 'default loadout' and you unlock different loadouts/powers/weapons with each new race.

Love me some Mass Effect, so count me in on some of the MP action to come. Can't wait to see how it turns out. Looked really good in the videos released thus far.

Really excited for this, i hope they do a good job of integrating the story into the mode, so it does not feel like a complete shooting gallery.
