Operation: Lodestar

Operation: LODESTAR (Mar 5th-10th)

We are coordinating the largest-scale attack in the brief history of this war. N7 unit actions will pave the way for resistance and conventional forces trying to retake the population centers of our homeworlds. There is no retreat. When an objective is finished or a target destroyed, you will immediately focus on the next. Our assets will provide cover to network ships that will update your targets in real-time. Rally points are at your disposal in the event that all space assets meet with catastrophic casualties. From there, you will fight as your CO sees fit or until further orders arrive.

I cannot fully express my deep respect for all of you, the sapients of the Milky Way who serve together under our banner. When future generations look back on this war, they will see the courage and commitment it takes to change the fate of a galaxy. It has been a hard road, but at last: the end is in sight.

Finish it.

–Admiral Steven Hackett

I wonder if they stack. As in extracting against all four on Platinum also gets you the tiers 1 and 2 rewards.

Now this is a challenge!!!


The banner should come with the 3rd tier reward.


Bring it!

The more I read that text the more I worry that this is the last challenge. I hope it isn't.

It would seem too early to just end it like that.

Ok... I was wanting a challenge, and now we've got one. I've got no problem with the 1st and 2nd tiers... but the 3rd is gonna be troubling for myself...

I solo-ran all 4 matches on Firebase Glacier Hazard Edition on Silver.  Spartan 117 (my Krogan Battlemaster) with his Wraith X took down the Geth in 25 minutes 50 seconds.  Gethzilla (my Geth Juggernanut) with its Scorpion X took down Cerberus in 24 minutes and 56 seconds.  Shao Kahn (my Krogan Warlord) with his Widow X and Claymore X took down the Reapers in 34 minutes 27 seconds.  The Collectors were a giant pain in the butt, as Gethzilla returns for a second dose of mayham and took them down in 31 minutes 22 seconds.  This was so awesome and I had so much fun!  :)  


1rst Tier Reward  =  Valiant IX


2nd Tier Reward  =  Hurricane IV


3rd Tier Reward  =  None, because I don't play on Platinum


Best regards and wishes to everyone in getting these Commendation Packs  :)

This going to be fun :)

Got the Crusader X tonight.

Platinum is gonna be nigh on impossible, but I'd rather try and fail, than fail to try. May need to jump in with some of my American friends and see if they don't mind carrying me for a bit :)

Any know what the banner looks like? Be willing to post a pic of it?
