Still got Geth and Reapers to do I think, oh boy Geth should be fun.

So if anyone still fancies doing these just for fun, I'll be happy to join.

Anyone know how to get the Krogan Melee banner?

Also, PM me over LIVE if you need help with platinum for the challenge or want to play platinum.

It's for completing the Combat Mastery challenge. The challenge that requires Melee damage, over-cover grabs, headshots, and grenade damage. I've been hesitant about grinding the over-cover grabs, but now I pretty much have to. That Banner is sick!

Hopped in for the weekend challenge, couldn't pass up that awesome banner.

I promoted all my classes tonight too and was very pleased to see that I didn't have to rename them all after promoting and all of the cosmetic choices don't reset anymore. Very nice, I'm so out of the loop. What's with all the Gift Packs I keep getting also?

Well, there's a free character pack Gift Box that was released with the Reckoning DLC, it has a 100% of giving you a DLC character.

Then there was the free Gift Box containing a Promotional N7 weapon for the Mass Effect 3, 1-year Anniversary.

After that... if you keep getting Gift Boxes, I've heard of a glitch that does do that (Lucky ducks, those who somehow get it.)

Valkyrie VI (gift) and VII (operation). I don't do platinum (not interested in that much stress/time consumption), so I guess I'll just have it at that.

wasn't sure if i'd be able to pull off the platinum extracts, but luckily was able to do so with randoms for each type. thank goodness for those geth juggernauts (I don't have one)...no idea how you'd deal with so many damn banshees and phantoms all at once, otherwise. I can confirm that only your team needs to extract in order for you to get credit for the weekend challenge (was insta-killed by banshee at 0:01 vs reapers ).

hurricane 6 + 7, and valiant 4....a good haul for me .

Took me all weekend, and doing 2 plat extractions with randoms, but finally got it done. Finished the final one at 5:01pm today. Was kind of worried it wasn't going to count but it did. First time I've ever really attempted Platinum so was nice to get all 4 extractions (about 13-15 attempts total I'd guess) Made it to wave 10 multiple times only to fail during or just after finishing the objective.

I've developed a fondness of the Eagle now that I've got it to VII, very nice.

The N7 weapons can be found in packs now, so it looks like the operations are all done...

Can't this just remain a general multiplayer thread? Why does it need trimmed?

Before today I had 14 Ultra Rare upgrades to unlock, half of them were Punisher SMG. Now its 34 upgrades. Every time I get close to maxing them out they add more.

There are 21 Ultra Rare weapns and 25 Rare weapons. I remember when we only had 7 UR weapons, then they released Indra. And Harrier. And Particle Rifle. And Typhoon. And Collector SMG. And 4 more with Reckoning. And now 5 more.

Here are images of my weapons manifest form shortly after Rebellion was released and from today.



Anyway, they also added 2 more challenges so now it is possible to unlock Squad Elite challenge without doing any weekend challenges. I guess it means no more weekend challenges. I'm little sad but Bioware supported ME3 MP a lot longer than I thought they would.

I'm really looking forward to next Mass Effect game and I hope multiplayer part will be as good as it is in ME3.

I have a question I hope one of you can help me with. A little while back there was a contest where people designed in-game banners for Mass Effect 3 and recently they announced and showed the ones that got selected. Right after that Bioware announced they were available for in-game use, but I can't find them anywhere in the N7HQ. When I look at the section to change my banner the only choices are the ones for the reward operations I've completed. Any idea what's going on with these banners?

Here's the post...

Do you have those particular challenges complete? If so, you should be able to choose the banner you want from this link.

http://social.bioware.com/n7hq/challenge/

The Krogan ones are my new favorites.

Ohhh, there are challenges associated with them. Sorry, I thought we could just use them. Just ignore me, I'm new to this. Thanks!

It's no problem. I think they should have added a few freebies, since most of the challenges take awhile to complete.

Awesome, less chance of getting the characters and/or Harrier and more chance of a Valkyrie upgrade!

About the Squad Elite challenge - I hope so.

I haven't missed a challenge event yet, and was kind of assuming they'd continue to do so, so the weekend even challenge could be completed.

Like you said, I'm really gutted it looks like they're done with it now though, but I will echo your final sentence and say how surprised, and also how grateful I am for their support to the mode.

I remember when the MP was announced, and the amount of uncertainty and some negativity was mammoth. I'll admit I was a little unsure. Brilliant surprise.

I just checked out the N7HQ to see what those are, and I have to ask and hoping for the best, but was Unknown added as an actual search location/enemy (as in just like all the other locations, so that you can look specifically for games of U/U)? Too deep in Tomb Raider right now to put in ME3 just to check this one thing out.

I've been wanting U/U searchable for so long! Hate when I'm constantly being placed in predefined PUG lobbies (and usually the same couple locations every time); especially with my anal-retentive, OCD need to keep my GR even across all five sectors. :P

25 Unknown Enemy Extractions
25 Unknown Map Extractions

No word as to "unknown = unknown" as opposed to the usual "unknown = whatever random game we stick you in". My guess, it's easier to host it and guarantee "unknown" status.

Oh I know it's going to require "unknown = unknown." There's no question about that (hazard maps don't count for the regular maps, even though the location is the same, so the challenges require exactly what they say). I was just wanting to know if there is an option in addition to "Any Location/Enemy" when searching of "Unknown Location/Enemy."

I don't like hosting games (takes too long for even one other person to join (among other reasons)), thus why I've wanted this option for some time.

EDIT: And I just looked, and sure enough, no "Unknown" option in searching for games. :/

If anyone wasn't aware, there has been official word that there will be no more weekend events.

Look for NPlewes reply to the topic. Or, I'll just quote it here:

Hey guys - so yes the servers and challenge systems will keep running as long as we can keep them up but there will no longer be any organized weekend events.

Added it to the front page (w/link) and updated the recent operations. In case of the thread getting locked, I just want to take this opportunity to apologize for not updating the thread constantly since Ballistic (Personal stuff.). I also want to thank those who updated the community on the challenges.
