Mass Effect 3 Operation: Overwatch This Weekend

This weekend’s Mass Effect 3 operation, codenamed OVERWATCH and running from July 27th 10AM PDT to July 30th 5AM PDT, is all about extraction. Because Operation BROADSIDE failed, extraction time has been lengthened.

Squad Goal: Extraction on any difficulty with at least one squad member using an Earth Pack character

Allied Goal: Extract 800,000 individual players on any difficulty, with each live member counting toward the goal.

Success on the squad goal will award all squad members with a Commendation Pack, while succeeding at the allied goal will grant all players a Victory Pack that includes a new Earth character. Players must have Mass Effect: Earth installed to earn these rewards.

Says it all really, wesker. You prefer quantity over quality, prescriptive, endless entertainment for the easily pleased. Never mind the fact that ME3 was supposed to be a cathartic end to the series – more is more in the world of wesker1984, story be damned. This is why your opinions are derided at every opportunity.

Welcome to the wacky, wide world of wesker. Where stupidity and retardation run rampid. (Disclaimer: Apologies to all those out there who are mentally handicapped, cause I know you not as dumb as this moron). The star of our show is a 11 year old little girl with her panties in a bunch, and a corncob shoved up her……………….. what’s that, oh. we’re out of time. To bad. Tune in again soon for the next episode of the wacky, wide world of wesker, where you to can laugh and wonder at the idiot. Time to go to the bathroom and make little weskers.

So wait the extraction portion of a match is normally 2 minutes of just trying to stay alive on the hardest wave of the entire match.

In gold against reapers the extraction portion can very often just be a constant wave of Banshee and Brutes.

Now BioWare’s metrics came out and they realized that people failed to meet that condition; so the logical solution to them is make the wave last EVEN LONGER?!?!?

Am I the only one that is happy they traded in their copy and got store-credit towards a game that is made by sane people?
