Can Someone Explain the War Map?

My "War Assets" green bar is entirely maxed out, but yet the map still says 50% all across the board, and is all red. I don't know how close I am to completing the game, but I have to be getting real close by now, and the map still seems to indicate that I've made no progress.

map = MP aspect. You need to play MP to raise that score. The bar fills out REALLY easily. To get the best ending you need 5000+ i heard.

Sorry to tell you but for some super lame reason, Bioware decided that it would be totally cool to cap it at 50% UNLESS you play online. So the only way to get those percentages up is to play certain maps online. Way to go Bioware..

So you mean I *have* to play multiplayer in order to get the best ending? They are going to punish me in my single player experience if I don't?

Well Bioware has allegedly stated that it is possible to get the best ending without online, but it would require you to do an assload of sidequests. Practically EVERYTHING. So they say anyways.

So I need to play each section of the map like 5 times or so in order to get the numbers up to 100% and then beat the game quickly before those figures go back down from being "unattended" and whatnot?

actually, the N7 missions are currently bugged. they were supposed to give readiness, but they don't

For reference, there is only 1 individual quest listed right now and it is a priority one. There are like 30 completed Citadel quests, and my War Asset bar is entirely maxed out. My numbers are like 7700 or so.

But all of it still says 50%, so I wasn't sure.
