There seems to be a little bit of confusion over this, and I'm not sure we have a thread dedicated to clarifying. So, here goes:

Did they clarify yet whether "Allied Goal: Extract 400,000 squads against Reapers on ANY difficulty" means full extraction is required?

Yes, full extraction all members.

Leave no one behind.

Unfortunately not everyone- especially PUG randoms- will see this, but maybe it'll help spread awareness a little bit. Apologies to everyone who already knew; keep up the good work.

I now know I've only contributed 3 the of 400K needed so far, instead of 10. This news, though has made me now know to not play any more PUGs for now, 'cause all 3 of mine were with friends, I can't rely on Randoms to full extract.

Spam bronze. Solo if necessary. I did about 20 solos since yesterday... at work now. Sucks.

I've done a handful myself, but if only half of us are aware that full evac is necessary there are going to be a lot of angry people on Tuesday if we've failed.

Your link is busted. Seriously Bioware needs to stop this game. This comes up every time "extraction" missions are going. They need to use the bloody terms that are built into the game. Just list them out.

Stupid PUG's are driving me crazy. There is always one person who dies because they are not playing the 11th round or because of stupidity and throwing themselves into the enemy with 10 seconds left. <_<
I also only have 3, though I should have around 6.

I thought extractions were extractions, not full extractions. So we get the solo prize if we are part of a team in which ANY person extracts but that mission won't count towards the allied goal? It almost sounds like this is a built to fail mission..coupled with the time frame as well.

Meh. The reward for the community goal usually sucks, anyway. If they put in another Commendation pack in there, then I'd care.

You don't think +1 maximum Medigel capacity is worth contributing a few full extractions?

With Platinum just around the corner, I'll take any boosts I can get. I'm sure there are people here who feel the same.

If they would count actually extracted persons then the 400k might be feasible - though i have no real idea on amount of games that take place during a challenge.

So, soloing will count? I can solo bronze, extract and it will count towards community goal?

Yes.

Doesn't matter how many people are in the game, as long as the whole team extracts. If 'the whole team' is one guy, it still counts.

Did not notice that. Thankfully, I'd just been doing Gold runs so far to assure me a commendation pack. Knowing my track record though, I believe I'll be contacting EA pretty soon for them. Kinda makes me feel a little bad because I never pushed for a full extract in all those games. Had I known, I might have let loose more rockets on wave 11.

400k FULL extractions against Reapers? That's a joke, right? One of those "you're not supposed to make it" goals, like the 3 million banshees a while ago? We'll be lucky to hit 100k, 400k is beyond hopeless.

At least I can stop wasting my time with all the uselessly awful Reaper PUGs and go back to U/U/G...

Yes it is a lofty goal, but the prize is one that you wont see often at all

I decided to go back to bronze for this event, I feel so powerful doing this! Even then I've had some people just not be in the extraction zone, pisses me off! But at least on bronze the matches are closer to 10-15 minutes.

400k isn't THAT absurdly unlikely. I started doing bronze runs last night, and the two gold runs I completed were full, so I'm already at around 10 personally. Probably will hop on again soon.
