EDIT: I added some release dates on here for more ease of reference.

EDIT: Added further reasoning.

Okay, so first, I'll start with what we know. The Retaliation kits are as follows:

Volus Adept - Stasis, Biotic Orbs, Shield Boost
Krogan Shaman Adept - Barrier, Shockwave, Warp
Batarian Slasher Adept - Warp, Cluster Grenade, Lash

Turian Havoc Soldier - Cryo Blast, Havoc Strike, Stimulant Pack
Geth Trooper Soldier - Hunter Mode, Flamer, Fortification
Quarian Marksman Soldier - Marksman, Tactical Scan, Sabotage

Volus Engineer - Proximity Mine, Shield Boost, Recon Mine
Turian Saboteur Engineer - Sabotage, Sentry Turret, Homing Grenade
Vorcha Hunter Engineer - Bloodlust, Incinerate, Submission Net

Volus Mercenary Sentinel - Decoy, Combat Drone, Shield Boost
Asari Valkyrie Sentinel - Tech Armour, Annihilation Field, Warp

Turian Ghost Infiltrator - Overload, Tactical Cloak, Stimulant Pack
Drell Assassin Infiltrator - Tactical Cloak, Homing Grenade, Recon Mine
Asari Huntress Infiltrator - Tactical Cloak, Dark Channel, Warp

Volus Protector Vanguard - Biotic Charge, Biotic Orbs, Shield Boost
Batarian Brawler Vanguard - Biotic Charge, Blade Armour, Lash

List of kits courtesy of Cyonan

There are 3 Adepts, 3 Soldiers, 3 Engineers, 2 Sentinels, 3 Infiltrators, and 2 Vanguards on that list. Think about the classes with 3 kits in their list. Look familiar? How's this:

Turian Havoc Soldier - Cryo Blast, Havoc Strike, Stimulant Pack
Turian Ghost Infiltrator - Overload, Tactical Cloak, Stimulant Pack
Volus Engineer - Proximity Mine, Shield Boost, Recon Mine
Volus Adept - Stasis, Biotic Orbs, Shield Boost


And remember who we got last Tuesday? We already had an Adept from this DLC, and yet we got another one? Here's why:

The 4 initial characters were meant to even the playing field. Take those four out, and you're stuck with two kits per class. They had to be included so that they could start distributing classes on a normal basis.

Moving on to my point, we got an Adept class first. Log into the game and look at what class is first on the list. Adepts, right? And after that comes Soldiers, then Engineers, and so on. Logic (assuming this wasn't all a coincidence) would therein dictate that we're next getting a Soldier, then an Engineer, and so on.

So why the Geth Soldier? Why not the Quarian Marksman? Look at my first list. When the Retaliation DLC hit, that was the order the kits showed up on the list. We got the Volus Adept at launch. Then we got the Krogan Shaman, who came after him. After the Turian Havoc Soldier comes the Geth Soldier on the list.

Going off of this speculation, I put this list together for the better benefit of all the people:

Turian Havoc Soldier - Cryo Blast, Havoc Strike, Stimulant Pack
Turian Ghost Infiltrator - Overload, Tactical Cloak, Stimulant Pack
Volus Engineer - Proximity Mine, Shield Boost, Recon Mine
Volus Adept - Stasis, Biotic Orbs, Shield Boost
Week 1-Krogan Shaman Adept - Barrier, Shockwave, Warp (Oct. 15)
Week 2-Geth Trooper Soldier - Hunter Mode, Flamer, Fortification (Oct. 23)
Week 3-Turian Saboteur Engineer - Sabotage, Sentry Turret, Homing Grenade (Oct. 30)
Week 4-Volus Mercenary Sentinel - Decoy, Combat Drone, Shield Boost (Nov. 6)
Week 5-Drell Assassin Infiltrator - Tactical Cloak, Homing Grenade, Recon Mine (Nov. 13)
Week 6-Volus Protector Vanguard - Biotic Charge, Biotic Orbs, Shield Boost (Nov. 20)
Week 7-Batarian Slasher Adept - Warp, Cluster Grenade, Lash (Nov. 27)
Week 8-Quarian Marksman Soldier - Marksman, Tactical Scan, Sabotage (Dec. 4)
Week 9-Vorcha Hunter Engineer - Bloodlust, Incinerate, Submission Net (Dec. 11)
Week10-Asari Valkyrie Sentinel - Tech Armour, Annihilation Field, Warp (Dec. 18)
Week11-Asari Huntress Infiltrator - Tactical Cloak, Dark Channel, Warp (Dec. 25)
Week12-Batarian Brawler Vanguard - Biotic Charge, Blade Armour, Lash (Jan. 1, 2013)


But like I said, this is all speculation and inferring. If we really don't get the Geth Soldier... then I apologize for leading you folks on :unsure:


(Added Oct. 22) Now, with all of that said, I'm sure there's still a bit of skepticism. "You're just going off of the leaked menu!" Yeah, I am. First of all, consider everything I just said up until now. Second, we weren't supposed to see that list. That list was (with 95% certainty) the order of release for these characters, in some variation or another. Which order, however, is uncertain, but I can (with 86% certainty) guarantee that tomorrow, we will NOT be getting the Quarian Marksman, Vorcha Hunter, Asari Valkyrie OR Huntress, or the Batarian Brawler. Guys, they're in the order they were presented in for a reason.

Technically 10 weeks, since we already got the Krogan Shaman. If we get the Geth Soldier in two days though... well, I humbly apologize.

I hope you're right, because I am excited for Geth Soldier. But...I share MajorStupidity and 8 Bears' (!) lament about the Brotarian Broguard

... Don't make me wait 7 weeks for that Quarian Soldier T_T... (Tac. Scan+Marksman with headshot evolution just sounds too good for me)

I'd imagine it would rather be this, or they're going to just clear out the groups, which will mean we'll get all the adepts first, then soldiers, etc.

It all falls on what happens this tuesday I guess
If it's a batarian adept, well I hope no one wants those vanguards
If it's a soldier period, this could be the case, and would be nice (especially since I like both engineers yet to come)
If it's something else, well... popularity or something?

Crossing my fingers it's this though

I'm wondering if the other Volus classes will be ultra rare or not.

For what it's worth, their card data in the .ini lists them as "Rare" while the volus adept/engineer are "UltraRare." Although I think card rarity can be changed server side, all of the Earth N7 classes are Ultra Rare in the .ini too but Rare in actual packs.

I thought about those too, but it just seemed... mean. I mean, for the most part, all the classes that people really want are at the front (Drell Infiltrator, Turian Engineer, etc), with a few exceptions. This would be the fastest way to get us what we want without handing it all out at once.

I always imagine your avatar Garrus putting his helmet on and riding off when nearing the end of your posts.
