Because...

RNG is so dumb sometimes.

You answered your own question Yes, yes it is dumb. And very annoying when it doesn't give you what you want.

I still don't have the Drell Assassin or Batarian Brawler, yet I have the Ultra-Rare Volus Adept and Engineer both completely maxed out on appearances. How the hell does that happen?

I think the game is calling you a fattie.

I am loving the N7 Fury; I had a tough time of it with her on the semi-pub Gold match I dropped into with Kloreep yesterday afternoon, but felt like she cleaned up on Giant last night. It's a small thing, but I love how Annihilation Field makes Swarmers self-destruct.

I also really love how fast she moves with AF on.

Sadly, while I picked up the Krysae with one of my packs, I got a Kishock upgrade with the next.

Reviewing the challenges I have, I discovered I somehow got 150k with the Kishock. I have no memory of when, or more importantly how I managed such a feat.

HAX!

Hmm, you sound ki... shocked?

Got my 200k with the Krysae last night. After my initial dislike of the gun, once I played with it a bit more I actually really enjoyed it. Kinda gonna miss it while I get my other challenges done.

Also, credit stealing glitch stole 35K credits again last night. Not happy.

Every time that's happened to me post-match, I just exit the game and restart it and the credits are always back. I haven't permanently lost any yet, and it's happened at least 3 times the last 2 weeks.

Well I come out of the match and into the lobby and I have 40k. I then exit out of the lobby back to main multiplayer screen and it says 5K. I then quit, but haven't gone back into it. The only issue is on the Social site which shows your stats, it also says 5K there. So I'm not holding my breath that it comes back. Next time it happens, I'll give it a go however, see if it works.

Yeah the money always disappears when you leave a lobby. But restarting has returned it for me, so far.

FINALLY got a Saber. Finally. Have been getting nothing but crappy gear bonuses and level IV ammo, and finally, a Saber. Then, after another match, I bought another pack. Harrier III and Black Widow III in that one pack.

Black Widow III and Harrier III... in the same pack...

I'm not sure what I hate more, Collector Sniper Rifle or the Kishock Harpoon Gun. I used both last night and sucked. Came in last both times. Horrible, horrible weapons.

Collector Sniper is pretty nice actually.

Best way to use it is in a stream apparently, not pew-pew-pew. Shooting short bursts doesn't do enough damage and there's a delay to reload.

Best to fire off a stream of 30 rounds or so, not enough to empty the clip, and you're good.

Although I may not have used it on gold yet, can't remember. Definitely soloed silver with it earlier though on Salarian Inf. Pretty nice.

That is a tough call...

I did the Kishock challenge after seeing how close I was, and I recommend not trying to get cute with it--stick to Bronze, because your ass will be hanging in the wind while you charge your shot, and something with Submission Net, because then you can hold things while you kill them. I got the last 50k in little time.

I haven't bothered with the CSR.

That's probably the issue. I was doing it on gold and just failed miserably.

I miss the game already and it's only been 4 days. Hopefully I can get an apartment & tv pretty soon after arriving in Portland. Maybe whatever the new DLC is will actually be out by then too.

Portland OR? I just found out that I am loosing a roommate and will need one mid-March. /possible random coincidence.

So funny. While my old roommate is just going to NZ for work, it would be more appropriate if I was getting the big D.

But a reserve pack to finish the night... uncommon ammo, rare weapon mod upgrade, rare gear upgrade, rare gear upgrade...

Yep, that's it exactly. I'll be looking for a place as soon as I arrive so I will definitely get in touch with you.

I grabbed an arsenal pack last night and got consumables and a rare gear upgrade. We should go to Vegas sometime.

If you plan on continuing to play this mode over the long haul, you will be getting reeeeeaaaaal familiar with the 99K "Warp IV and Armor Piercing IV" pack.

I googled your name recently and ... wow.

ERMAHGERD DLC

Wield 7 new weapons for multiplayer, including the Geth Spitfire Assault Rifle, Venom Shotgun, Lancer Assault Rifle, and amplify your arsenal with new equipment and weapon mods featuring the Geth Scanner and Assault Rifle Ultralight materials.

Mass Effect 3: Reckoning launches at no additional cost worldwide on February 26th on Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3 (on February 27th on PlayStation 3 in Europe).

Twitch TV Live Stream Event

I just met the most spectacularly useless asshole. He had 160k on a gold geth match, while the other 3 of us had 90, 80, and 70k. So yeah he's a great sniper shot, but completely avoided every objective.

The first one was a hack, and he stood about 10 meters outside the area, sniping the whole time. Did not cloak and venture in to revive anyone. Just kill kill kill. I got incapacitated on the edge of the circle and bled out, so there were only 2 people in the circle for about half the wave.

Second one was an escort. Of course he was nowhere near the drone. Neither was the other sniper that time. So only 2 of us escorting, took twice as long... he racked up lots of nice score.

Final one was the 4 activations. I did all 4 of them. 2 of them he was standing directly beside it, but ignored it, so I had to run from the previous spot to activate. He also accidentally started activating objective 2 when he was trying to get in cover, but moved to get out of the animation and ran to the cover right next to it instead.

What a selfish piece of sh*t.

Assault Rifle Ultralight materials.

Shiny.
