    Yeah, heavy damage the banshee, or get killed by something else while grabbed

    Ive actually experienced getting grabbed by banshee but then a husk took over the grab and it got killed and so my life was saved.

    Only successful runs I've had with Volus (Voli?!?) is when the entire team supports the Volus by adapting to his style, and not the other way around. I thought Volus are the support specialists, not us.

    Since they can't get to cover, the entire team runs around kiting stuff with a fat asshole tailing their back and spamming that Shield Restore. Worked even on Gold. Easy as hell too. But once you get a Hack objective you get to watch your Volus die about 50 times. It's like having a mobile Geth Turret that deals less damage and has even lesser HP.

    Not being able to get to cover in a cover based shooter is a fucked up mechanic if you ask me.

    Volus are probably fun, seeing their hectic style. But I rather not see one in an all random group. Usually ends up in disaster.

    What people dont realise in games, is that support also need support. They dont have the impenetrable defense most people seem to think they have.

    Yeah that´s exactly what I usually do too but I made the mistake to click a few links that contained screenshots from Omega (female Turian and stuff) and now I am pretty hyped. Mostly on the story tho.

    I was asking myself a lot of questions about the possible story of the DLC like what you can do with the base once you free it or how you can even free it, maybe it goes wrong somehow and you have to make hard decisions. Those are the things that get me hyped a lot. I too heard that it is gonna be more of a LotSB size of DLC in regards of the content not as "small" as Leviathan or Overlord or other smaller ones.

    Maybe we can even give Omega to Hackett and not back to Aria? Even kill or imprison her? So many questions yet the answer is still a few days ahead.

    And this is why I avoid info on new DLC such as this like the plague, though that's easier said than done when you visit this thread. lol

    What the fuck ... did this guy just solo platinum? ... on a VOLUS??? ... seriously I am speechless.

    This guy has to be either Mione (WoW soloer) or another beast. He got pretty lucky tho because he was pretty low a few times. Also 1:30 hours? How can you stay on your toes that long?

    It´s not too bad to be hyped about Omega tho´. I am pretty sure that it is going to be good. Maybe not as good as Lair but there is a very high chance that it is going to be way better than Leviathan even if I have to admit that I liked Levi a lot.

    True but then it's bound to be more awesome when you go into it without any preconceptions about how awesome it's gonna be. Which is why I avoid hype. XD

    Plat was solo'd by them pretty much the same day as Volus came out
    That was the new engy

    Yeah that´s true. I am not that type of person that is easily disappointed by things that are not as good as I imagined them too be. I even managed to live with the original endings without crying a river like most other guys on the ME boards did back then and still do.

    So yeah even if it´s not that good I still appreciate that DLC just for bringing me back to SP.

    I was kinda impressed how you can last on such a fragile class against that many enemies. I mean there are a ton of Banshees and even Phantoms and Geth Primes ... does not look easy at all.

    Skilled player soloing plat vs. random guy trying out Volus. Not exactly what I was talking about. You don't run around meleeing stuff because there is a Kroguard in the party, but you start running away from everything as a group because there is a Volus.

    I did see several experienced Volus players in gold runs. Usually the run ends before anyone's shields can pop let alone a downed player. Problem is encountering one in Silver. I do silver runs to level up a freshly promoted kit. Volus I encounter in Silver runs usually are nightmares.

    I've got no problems with fragile stuff. Geth Engineer is my go to guy, and I run a Flamethrower turret. Volus kits look fine aside from the Sentinel one. (Orbs or Recon mine are better if you ask me. Especially Recon mine.) But it'll be a cold day in hell before I pick Volus for a random run.

    I usually play lots of random bronze and silver games to level up freshly promoted classes or to try out kits that I just unlocked. To be honest normally you can imagine that it is pretty easy to survive all 10 waves on bronze (easy on solo bronze) but there are guys that manage to fuck up on every single wave starting with wave 1 !!!

    You can´t compare a few dedicated guys that solo platinum with the crowd that fucks up on a simple bronze run.

    BTW: What´s the point in adding more and more war assets with each DLC when they already reduced the needed EMS for the best ending to 3000 or something?

    I smell some perfect ending once we have done all DLCs and collected all those war assets. You know Omega will add a bunch of assets too, for what? I am pretty sure that they don´t add them for giggles.

    Maybe once you have collected those assets like Leviathans, Omega assets and future DLCs then you will most likely have a shitload of EMS plus people like me who love to promote MP kits have a ton of assets anyways.

    My only grievance about Omega is the lack of Squadmate involvement. The lack of squad dialogue and interaction has a way of making the mission feel disjointed from the rest of the game, at lest that's how I felt with the mute squadmates in LotSB and Overlord.

    But I have high hopes that Aria and Nyreen will satisfy so I remain optimistic.

    Continuity. But aside from that, I actually like War Assets, not because of the affect they have on your ending or game in general, but because, like Planet descriptions, I feel they add to the universe. I enjoyed collecting them and reading about the different forces and troops in the galaxy, I felt it added some depth and insight into the Alien species and their militaries and I welcome more.
