Operation BROADSIDE puts our reinforcements to work by coordinating large-scale attacks against the Reapers on multiple fronts. The objectives vary from planet to planet and theater to theater, but the common goal is to develop a sustainable fighting method with a minimal loss of life.

Squad Goal: Extract at least one squad member against Reapers on Gold difficulty
Allied Goal: Extract 400,000 squads against Reapers on ANYdifficulty
Special Circumstance: None

Squad Goal Success: All squad members awarded a Commendation Pack
Allied Goal Success: All players awarded a Victory Pack. Medi-gel cap increases from 5 units to 6.



:devil:

Hot damn! A real challenge! This should be interesting...

I don't think I want to know what happens if we fail this operation though...

That is an Interesting award for Allied Goal. I have to say that if you go through 5 (or 6) medi-gel the mission is most probably a wash.

Could always use more medigel. Especially on gold matches with randoms.

Hi Chris, I am a little curious about the times for this event, for on the main page it says from 10am Friday to 10am Sunday is this correct?

I'm wondering about the times, too. 10am Sunday as an end time seems weird, and is especially inconvenient if you're on the west coast (which means almost no playtime on Sunday at all, unless you get up a lot earlier than I do on Sundays). Any chance that's a typo and it's meant to be 10pm? (I live in hope!)

That`s a real challenge. 

I suggest everybody to stockpile a LOT of medigel and a lot of Cobras for the golden goal, and don't hesitate to use them. 

Also, all the team being at level 20 would be very useful.

In other words, buy many jumbo packs and pick a good, diverse team.

Bring it on :ph34r:
  

PS: are the times confirmed?

Beginning at 10 a.m. on friday, for those of us who have to work all day, is a little weird.

Yes.

If you start off with no packs purchased, 3 is the most you can bring in.
After getting some rare upgrades, 5 is the most you can bring in.
If we win, then we will be able to find anotherr upgrade (eventually) to give us 6.


On another note:
Bioware discovered a way to make Extraction worthwhile.  After so many groups would get the credits on Wave 10, then perish...

I'm still waiting to see if my Shepard is "viable." After an EMS>7000 and choosing Destroy, I got, well, you know. So remind me now what I am fighting for?
