Mass Effect 3

4000 point requirement

Asked about Mass Effect 3 on March 26, 2012, 11:31 a.m. by moogle7

why can't I reach the 4000 point requirement to "live" at the games end? I'm not a multiplayer person and I don't like the idea that I have to be one to get all possible ending.... "choices"?

    you need 3000+ to get the best ending. if you have 4000+ EMS there will be one 10 second clip as a reward. I think that isn't worth to play ME 1 ME 2 again. I have done everything exelent I have imported Me 1 Me 2 character and at the end I had only 3700 EMS. but I didn't get salarian support. I think if I had salarian support I would have 4000+ EMS. but it isn't worth to play all trilogy again and spend 100 more hours for some 10 sec video clip.

    if you play it with origin you can play multiplayer to increase galactic readiness

    and i think at single every war asset you take increases it by a little

    have fun :)

    I'm not sure. It may take a second play through importing that character, again I'm not sure.

    Actually I think that little 5 second clip may be more of a reward to those who played ME2 and ME1 than a real ending option, an easter egg if you will. Could be wrong however.

    I am guessing the biggest problem you are having is with the "Effective Military Strength" modifier. Depending on your "Galactic Readiness," only a certain portion of your War Assets are actually applied to the single player campaign. It is a simple percent modifier. For example, you start with an EMS of 50%, which means only half of your War Assets are actually being applied.
    You can increase this percentage up to 100% by playing and completing multiplayer missions and to a lesser extent with the Mass Effect Infiltrator iOS app. There could be other ways, but these seemed the most straightforward to me.
    In general, I can get a little over 7000 EMS with a 100% readiness. It matters greatly based on the decisions made in the game and throughout the series. Check your War Assets terminal to find your readiness, or look at the display on the main menu.
    Good luck and good gaming!

    To all Intrepid Mass Effect Players,

    I happen to believe in team work and correct upgrades
    to successfully reach this 4000 target.
    It just maybe a critical factor that many have not
    paid any attention too.
    Hence single play may not be the best way to obtain the
    live and fight another day.
    So if you wish to live and obtain the 4000 target then
    may I advise everyone to try multiplayer gaming
    and practice good united team effort and have a
    pleasant result.
