Alright guys, this area's given us a lot of trouble before...

"Time's up, let's do this. LEEEEROOOOOOOOOOOOOYYY, JEEENKIIINS!"

When in a Gold or Plat lobby, do you often try to synergize your characters with other people in the lobby? Could be that you use a biotic or tech team, maybe you go with WoW style and use 1 tank, 1 healer, and 2 DPS.

Bonus points if you share an experience where your team collaborated extensively before a match, only to have some a***hole Paladin get downed on Wave 1.

When Berry, Severed, and I p,ay, we mostly just screw around, use whatever. But when we bother to actually synergize, either Tech or Biotic, the results speak for themselves.

Our favorite setups are an Overloader (Gethgineer or T.Sent), a Paladin, and a Flamer for tech.

For Biotics, either Severed or I will go Mandept, Berry is usually a power-build Collector, and then whoever isn't the Mandept will use the Drell or Justicar.

We don't even try to synergize with PuGs. It isn't worth it. Seeing Adepts using Disruptor and Incendiary, for instance.

If I'm the single biotic on a tech team, I'll switch, and vice versa. I also try not to overlap with other people, like switching from a class with dark channel if there's already one in the lobby.

The main thing I do is hold off on grenade-reliant classes if there are others in the lobby. Shame, because grenade-reliant classes are the most fun for me.

This. A krogan soldier is no fun to play when I can only spam carnage because the MQE took all the grenades. Even worse if it's a map like Giant or Glacier that only gives one grenade per ammo box.

I don't really pay attention to the team anymore. Most of the matches I just Leeroy Jenkins with whatever I'm playing.

Don't camp? I played with two alliance infiltration units and a drell adept on condor and managed to find grenades when ever I wanted. They had speed on me but I ran the map and always had enough grenades.

Me and a couple of people I picked up along my N7 career decided to roll all base Engineers on Gold/Reactor/Geth... we all camped the immediate area around the LZ and had fun... nothing was getting even emotely close with 4 chain overloads and the techsplosions we would create, we had 4 drones, each doing a fair bit of damage and creating 4 more targets for our enemies, we sat back and relaxed, easiest gold game of my life.

Don't lie Jank, you do that every match. Or we can just say statistically speaking 9/10 times you are pulling a Leeroy Jenkins.

I often play with friends. We sometimes try to not take all of us grenade classes (basically, the first calls dibs) and have a support/tank. They're as smart as a brick, so it's a hell to tell them that techs mess up biotic priming and that kind of things, but hey, they do pretty well.

When I PUG, I just pick the first thing I catch and solo the game having the other 3 players as bait and some additional support.

there some classes where I really care about grenades and freak out when I see another grenade class. I always make sure no one else has grenades when I use the Talon, MQE, Drell Adept, and Slasher.

Other grenade classes, like the TGI, Sabotuer, Human Soldier, etc, I don't really care if other people are using grenades.
