Mass Effect 3: Happy N7 Day Everyone! and Multiplayer Balance Changes Nov 7

Well, as you may or may not know, today is N7 day!  Bioware has a bunch of special things planned for today – you can check them out here.

The thing that I am most excited about is that we will automatically get an ultra-rare weapon and two consumable items as part of the limited edition N7 Day Loyalty Pack!

Anyway, expect more updates as the day goes along … Bioware probably won’t release the new stuff til afternoon my time (EST).  If anyone wants to play some ME3, I’ll be popping into random lobbies all day :)

Update 1:  The new Omega DLC will be livestreaming at 8am PST (less than an hour from now!) here: http://www.twitch.tv/bioware

Update 2: The in-game challenge for N7 day is about to go live in 30 minutes!  (1pm EST)

Update 3: The in-game challenge is up – extract 3 times with a human character … so easy.  Also, grab your Loyalty Packs while they’re hot! :)

There are a lot of balance changes for this week, mostly new challenges.  The best changes I’ve seen are the caps for Dragoons, Praetorians, though it doesn’t apply to Platinum:
