Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer |OT| Rich, deep online role playing

No bald cap? Lies!
Uh wouldn't having both warp and overload be quite important as they can take out both defensive layer types and tech armor allows them to hold their own in a fight. Judging by how tough some of the later enemies are being able to quickly take out their Shields or barriers seems pretty valuable.
 
What are the Drell Adept and Vanguard like?
Drell initial melee attack is a sweet kick. Pretty badass feeling to charge, pump a round or two, melee, and backflip outta there. Cluster grenades are pretty useful for enemies with riot shields, haven't really found an efficient way to deal with them outside of using those.

Added errbody to the the list, and tried to add all the Origin players. A couple didn't. Make sure to check the list for errors and let me know what needs to be changed.

Sniper to the head through the little slit in their shield works just fine for me.
 
I swear, Infiltrators are useless now. Why would they nerf the sniper rifle? Extra reload time (from ME2) AND no longer a one-hit kill. What's the point if you can't get a kill without cloaking anymore?
 
I think I prefer Horde 2.0 to this, but the MP in ME3 isn't bad at all.
About my only complaint is that there is no one out there playing on 360 hardly, so I called it a night. I did have a match that was pretty good. Me and two randoms made it to wave 10 before dying. Looked like they knew what they were doing, but I was still feeling everything out.

I don't know how I feel about buying packs of new items/perks/weapons with creds though.
I don't play much MP online, but I will devote some time to this upon release and I look forward to more people getting in and playing online this week.

I was going to have to wait until tomorrow but some guy on CAG gave me a code.

Headshots are a one hit kill. I do it all the damn time as an infiltrator.

Yes, but the risk of wasting a shot is annoyingly high when targeting a moving enemy - which I find is more often than not. The risk/reward just ain't there, if you ask me.
What's wrong with one-hit chest shots? They existed in ME2, and made the Infiltrator a much more enjoyable class.
 
Yeah. Kinda confused. Apparently people already have this, so how do I go about downloading it? I have my BF3 multiplayer pass, and I'm on 360. Trying to figure this out. -.-

You cant unless you scored a code from the Facebook app or something. People who got early access to the demo are now able to play online, if they've got a BF3 online pass. If you don't have early access to the demo, but do have a BF3 online pass, you'll be able to play in ~12 or so hours when the demo goes officially live.
 
After playing another couple hours, I'm glad to say that this completely surprised me with how good it is. Only a level 8 infiltrator so far, but sniping Guardians in their stupid eye slits feels so damn satisfying. There are so many ammo boxes that I never feel like I'm running low with the Mantis, so I think I'll try running without a sidearm and just be able to cloak constantly (which is so incredibly useful for reviving bad vanguards who charge into everything willy nilly).

The loot mechanic is really neat, I kind of wish it gave you fewer consumables and more class stuff because I'm a terrible consumable hoarder.

Does the BF3 PC version counts? I don't think so but... :(
 
I have a short question for people already playing the multiplayer. Are there any spoilers in (from the demo title screen up to playing the multiplayer: enemies, locations etc) that spoil the single player experience? I have been on a blackout ever since the VGAs very first annoucement trailer and harldy know anything about the third game.

I don't mind to see unknown enemies or locations just as long as there is no explanation or connection to the single player.

Thank you very much.

Well if you're on a real media blackout, the enemy could be a spoiler.
Although i don't really think it's a big suprise.
It's

Ah ok, thanks. That bit was already "spoiled" for me by a friend. I just don't know why and hope there is no clue or explanation in the multiplayer.

List updated.

Thread title reads like an advertisement. Or is it meant to be ironic?
I don't see how anybody could see Mass Effect, the role playing series, as anything less than a modern Planescape. So yes I'm totally serious.

Headshots. And you need higher level snipers. Mantis I is not nearly as good as Mantis V. And class damage bonus. Cloak damage bonus. You can one shot enemies if you build your character around that.
Me, i'm going to make a shotgun Infiltrator...
 
They need to look into host migrations, so far every time it's happened I get a note saying it will restart the wave, but get kicked to the menu and lose all progress anyway.

The online for this demo is more annoying then anything, i've had a game over for just one player going down in a 3 man room, broken host migrations, lobbies saying to ready up when all of us are ready, the list grows.
 
Please add me to the XBL list.

I'll be DLing the demo, and I've had the game preordered since last year. So, ME3 is (obviously) a Day 1 purchase for me. And if you know me from other threads (Gears 3, SSFIV, Halo Reach, etc), then you know I'll be trying to get a group together for some Friday & Saturday night gaming sessions.
