    @ SiuiS - A while ago you were asking me to test how cooldown effects from Tech Armor and its knock-offs compared to effects from weapon encumbrance. I'm currently playing through the main campaign with my Sentinel Shep, and it occurred to me that I could test this easily there, since I can check the numbers in my power screen. Results:

    I recorded the numbers for three powers with different cooldowns, to give a decent sample size. Also, all numbers have an additional 30% cooldown decrease from armor (Inferno set) and 10% from upgrades at Liara's console, but since those apply to them all (except the base numbers from the Normandy, I assume) it shouldn't matter. Tech Armor I have maxed out with the upgrade to reduce cooldown effect, which in single-player still only brings it to 50%. (Aside: I really wish they'd apply balance changes to single-player as well as multiplayer and do not understand why they don't.)

    Cooldowns as they appear on the Normandy (base, should be no modifiers outside of power upgrades applied I think, all have the rank 2 25% upgrade and no others in that regard):

    Throw: 2.96 seconds
    Warp: 5.93 seconds
    Cryo Blast: 4.44 seconds

    200% cooldown weight, no Tech Armor:

    Throw: 1.1 seconds
    Warp: 2.19 seconds
    Cryo Blast: 1.64 seconds

    200% cooldown, with Tech Armor:

    Throw: 1.27 seconds
    Warp: 2.54 seconds
    Cryo Blast: 1.9 seconds

    147% cooldown, no Tech Armor:

    Throw: 1.28 seconds
    Warp: 2.57 seconds
    Cryo Blast: 1.93 seconds

    147% cooldown, with Tech Armor:

    Throw: 1.53 seconds
    Warp: 3.06 seconds
    Cryo Blast: 2.29 seconds

    So as you can see, the numbers for 200% cooldown plus Tech Armor are extremely similar to the numbers for 147% cooldown without Tech Armor, so you may well be correct that Tech Armor's effects are applied in the same manner as the weapon encumbrance effects.

    On an unrelated note, playing as a Sentinel I find myself baffled by the design of Tech Armor in ME3. Why take it from full holographic armor in 2 to covering only the front of your character in 3? It doesn't make sense from any in-universe perspective I can think of, and from an out-of-universe one it just looks stupid by comparison, at least in my opinion.

    Also, page 50. Time for someone willing to maintain the multiplayer list to check the name voting from the previous page and make a new thread.

    Well I'm a PC player. I'll gladly join in, but... Well I prefer not using voice chat if possible. I'm sensitive on that subject.

    You should know it's me because of the profile picture of Zrin from Darkspore.

    Yeah I'd say truly challenging levels from least to worst for me went:
    Geth Ship endfight (dunno why really, just had trouble,) Fight before the charge on earth, Grissom, Ardaht-Yakshi/Banshee adjustment level, Maurauder f-ing Shields and the three Husketeers of wibbly wobbly deadness.

    Edit: Admittedly, the last two on that list were skewed from me being exhausted, and sloppy.

    Funny enough, when my brother finished ME3 we decided to switch to Insanity for Marauder Shields and the Three Husketeers. Took him 2 tries. (first time he missed a shot on Shields) And he is MUCH less experienced then I am. Not sure about the worry there. Just land your shots and it's no issue. (and landing them isn't even hard. Due to stunlock, you don't need to headshot Shields contrary to belief)

    The only thing that was moderately difficult so far was the Atlas Mech on Eden Prime and Sur'Kesh. More so Eden Prime due to a limited party (Liara AND James?!) with even more limited equipment (my fault for not upgrading my weapons when I should have)

    It's one of those things where the slow moving targets combined with the staggering motion of Shepard's arm is much harder than aiming under normal circumstances for me. Just threw me off.

    Ah, right. It's no issue for me or my brother. We're pretty good at being accurate.

    I think my sig can explain why it took me about 30 minutes to get past Marauder Shields.

    Also I found this link by ME on facebook. I will make and try each and every one. However I will make sure not to do it in a single night......maybe....
    I'm not bad, I just aim that way ~my own comment on my Call of Duty abilities.

    I'm wondering why none of the biotic squadmate cocktails (with the exception of Liara's and Samara's) are blue. Kaidan's is yellow, Wrex's is red, Jack's is orange, Thane's is green, Jacob's is white (!), Javik's is black, you see my point.

    In my posts, smilies generally correspond to my expression at the time. As an example, means "huh?" and "Hmm..". Also, "Landis" is fine.

    I just got through playing a couple of Silver missions with some great guys. We played well, we cracked jokes...I haven't had such a good time in a while (online, that is). Still, we did notice that Banshees were showing up a bit more often than any of us were used to. I really need to remember to keep my distance from those things.

    On it. Counting votes and formatting.

    EDIT: done. New thread here. With my silent vote, both Urdnot Wrex and Blasto' Exclamation hit five votes. I Sided with Anarion and AOTRS Commander because they put up with me elsewhere and could use a bit of reward for that.

    Will add in the info from the last page later, including Krade, Starsign and the current group run they're setting up.
