My connection is top notch, and I still get downed immediately after using "Survival" packs......

.....Yet I've survived Phantom stabbing by using one at the exact right moment.

What

the

fuck???!!!!!!

Also, enemies including Cerberus seeing you while cloaked (taking away half the purpose), and character cards, character cards, character cards, oh look Geth Potato Rifle!, more character cards.....

Ops Packs give you 1 second of damage immunity. If Phantom stabs you during this 1 second you'll get back up. If you think you are going to get stabbed by Phantom (they need to melee you first) just use Survival Pack. This little trick saved me 2 times during my platinum solo.

This also works with Brute, other instakills are longer than 1 second.

I know. My point is how frustratingly inconsistent they are.

More from playing today:

---People constantly stealing kills from my Claymore-wielding Vorcha Sentinel, a build which bypasses Flamer for Cluster grenades but operates at close range, and without 1/2 Bloodlust stacks I'm gonna die quickly. Since you can hear Flamer from across the map it shouldn't take long to realize all this.

---Dark Channel + Throw randomly not triggering a biotic explosion.

---Everyone else standing in a hard-to-defend extraction point for half the wave and constantly getting downed in the ensuing clusterfuck.

---It's been what, 2/3 months? And the Collectors still aren't patched. Yes, patched, because they're so obviously overpowered the game might as well be broken. Scion arm cannon blasts take down even a Krogan's shields, and you've got a fraction of a second between each to get in cover after being stunned, meaning getting hit by the first almost always results in half a health bar left or face on the floor. Oh, and then they launch 5 grenades in between! Don't forget Praetorian beams going through solid objects!

The Collector's being broken is what makes them so fun.

Also the word on BSN is that the multiplayer team is literally only 6 people at this point, so cut them some slack. Patches don't grow on trees.

I cannot stand playing against Geth anymore, well most of the time anyway. The stun-locking aggravates me so bad, lol.

One too many nights on the original Firebase White for me, I can't stand to fight Geth anymore. I always kick myself when I'm in a lobby and enemies are set to random and the game starts up with Geth, I always want to quit but I don't. Gotta host your own lobby and rotate the enemy type and always skip the Geth.

I used to enjoy Geth as they were fairly well balanced but when BW made them stun-happy it became a joke.

I swear Rocket Troopers can fire while stunned themselves.

They really should add a Gear that increases your stagger resistance, I would put it on every class.

Still wouldn't enjoy the Geth though, Hunters are the definition of bull%#$@.

Today I got accused of cheating. I have to admit, I was kind of flattered.

I beat the game fair and square at the last point where you have to defend the rocket launchers from a f#ckload of Banshees and what have you... Goes into scinematic cutscene riding a tank towards the beam... and the game freezes!!! Restart the Xbox, have to redo the fight all over again!!!

Sure, I never died once during that fight and only one of my squadies went down one time only so I can redo it in like 5-6 mins or so.

It's not that it's difficult - it's BULLSH!T!!! i beat the fight, the game should save after each epic moment...

Just bitchin' about it.

Gonna beat the game on insanity tonight, then DLC's. Was a walk in the park eating a piece of Husk pie with a lvl 60 Adept. Even easier then the Easy run I did first :P

The fuc*ing patches fu*k up the game -.- Do not download them... I saw that most other people are having trouble like I am ..
If you download them, the game will glitch and not Start :@ :S
It stays in an infinite loop of "Checking DLC" or something...
So frustrating,, I have to disconnect my internet every time I want to play the game..
Can Someone please send EA or BioWare a letter or something, since as I can see, tens of thousands have this problem..

Woke up at 2am this morning. Couldn't get back to sleep. Thought I'd pop this in.

I was in a weird mood. I felt like trying to solo Platinum (I think it is all down to my successful Platinum games from the week's challenge). For some reason, I had Unknown selected, other than the difficulty, of course - it ends up being Reapers as the starting faction, on Glacier. Fair enough.

Although I was feeling amitious because of the challenge, I knew deep down, I was part of a team, and I didn't hold much hope for getting past Wave 3. By which time I had assumed I'd be all out of consumables. XD

Wave 3 comes along. An escort objective. It was probably one of the shortest ones for Glacier (I don't know them off by heart), so I swiftly finished that off. I'm already ahead of my expectations.

Plodding along still, I get to Wave 6. Another escort objective. This one was a little hairy. I used my first medi-gel by this point, and then a missile to clear the way. After that it went a little smoother. Finished the round up, and I was surprised at how well I was doing.

Wave 7 comes and goes. And then the belief starts creeping in. Hardly any consumables have been used, and I'm managing the normal rounds fairly easily. It's only Wave 10 I have to worry about...

Wave 8 starts. I'm about half way through, and then "You have lost connection to the Mass Effect 3 servers. You need to be online to play multiplayer (or whatever else it says afterwards)". WHAAAAAA?!?!!???!!!!!

It kicks me straight back to the main menu. It loads up straight away. Bottom right corner it says "Connected to EA servers".

Cannot get a good Platinum game against Geth with randoms, need that one for Op Lodestar. Kept getting wiped on wave 7/8/9.

Tonight mate, we'll do it. I managed to get the Solder class to 16 I think the other night when you asked, but then it was late so I dashed off as I thought you might not want to give it a go (again, as it was late).

I'll be the spongernaut. I shouldn't get kicked by randoms because of my choice, despite my level.

I should be on around 9pm'ish. If earlier, I'll send a message.

I managed to get one done in the end, took freaking forever though. Now I'm back to needing credits, all I got for my troubles was the Turian Ghost and Claymore IX.

I tried solo'ing Platinum again last night. Objective waves were not kind to me. 3 and 6 were the four nodes, 10 was eliminate enemies. I got gang-pinned by Banshee's, Atlas' and Phantoms. Not enough Cobra's.

Almost...

My Rares and characters are all maxed out (I'm pretty sure) and the RNG only gives you an Ultra-Rare every once in a blue moon, so I'm getting level IV equipment from PSPs instead. Maybe I should stick to Equipment ones since Map+N7 are the only things left for BOTB....
