There was a time when I could visit a message board and talk about Mass Effect
's story, characters, gameplay, or whatever else was on the fan-base's mind.
Today, every topic on every message board taken up by one kind of topic: multiplayer. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad BioWare was successful in their implementation of the Mass Effect 3
's multiplayer. People who pretend BioWare has lost their way seem to ignore just how popular Mass Effect 3
's one new feature is. However, every topic on every message board that I visit is about rocket glitching, how unbalanced and unfair this class/power/weapon or that class/power/weapon is (considering it's cooperative multiplayer, I can't even figure out why anyone cares), jerks who kick you if your N7 level is too high/not high enough, and bragging about snagging two rare weapons in one Spectre Pack.
It's with that weighing on my heart that I bring you news of the next Mass Effect 3
bounty weekend. This one is called Operation Alloy
. The individual goal is to promote two characters, while the squad goal is to get a total of 50,000 characters promoted in total. If you meet the individual goal you get the standard Commendation Pack, but if the Allied Goal is met, everyone gets a Victory Pack AND a permanent upgrade to the amount of Medi-gel you can carry.
runs from August 24th 11AM MDT until August 26th 5AM MDT.
Good hunting out there.
