Just tried it for the first time with a squad of three.

Nailed it! It wasn't even that difficult. There were a couple of hairy moments around wave 8, but our infiltrator was able to revive our downed squadmates without being shot at.

I keep getting teamed up with morons who either run off on their own or have no idea which enemies are priorities.

See that Banshee? Yeah, she'll fuck us up if she gets too close, so stop shooting at the bloody marauders and cannibals and everyone concentrate fire on the walking death machine.
A Salarian Engie can solo a Banshee pretty well, even if she doesn't take the decoy bait. Energy Drain takes down her barriers and restores your shields. Incinerate decimates her armor.

Engies are equipped to handle pretty much every situation. I think I've started to like them better than Vanguards (I feel dirty saying that...).

I hate fighting reapers, why can't the challenge be Cerberus?

Also is it just me or does the soldier class suck? I don't seem to have anything to deal with armor, shields or barriers. I mean I know I'm not very good but I didn't think I was that bad.
 

.No.

It seems like they've been trying to find out how good they are at pissing people off recently.

I hate them too... But if you want to believe the rumors like I do, there's a free DLC coming that's bringing TONS of new stuff to multiplayer.

Blame Sony, they're the one's preventing this from happening on your console.
Source? Cause all I can find is due to 'technical problems' which makes me think it's BioWare causing the problem.

From the Operation Goliath forum post on the ME3 Forums

THIS CHALLENGE IS ONLY IN EFFECT ON XBOX 360 AND PC. Unfortunately we are unable to extend the N7 Challenge Weekend to the PlayStation 3. We continue to work with Sony to have them enable our ability to run these types of events on their platform.?
Seems like they can't track data like the other platforms via the "share data" option so regardless of how many Brutes PS3 users kill they have no way of seeing it.

us engineers are pretty awesome, chain spam overload for the geth, incinerate for armor or general damage, and combat drone to kite the brutes or banshees...

now if only they'll let me unlock the bloody asari vanguard and drell adept, i'll be happy -_-

I got the game sunday and when I got online my friends drafted me into service, now as I read I see that I needed to enable data tracking. Does anyone know if this is default on or did I miss out?

*GLARES* Reapers...Grrr. The one enemy faction which I cannot stand since they are mostly up in your face especially the Banshees (in otherwords, the Phantom on steroids incranate). At least I managed to beat the whole silver challenge doo-dad at the tenth try. Has anyone noticed that the 'floodgates' really open up on the tenth wave? Anyway, I hope it was all worth it come tuesday.

Go to Options, check the Online tab.
Data tracking is enabled by default.

Thank you, I read the info this morning but sadly I am currently chained to my cubicle so I could not check.

So my Brute kills counted. Sweet.

I've gotten accustomed to fighting them now. I usually HATE fighting them if I'm playing an enemy rotation because any character built to deal with Cerberus or Geth is going to suck against Reapers. But I've actually found that Human Adept is REALLY good against them. The Warp/Shockwave combo will melt a Brute or Ravager in two combos and it gives you breathing room against Banshees. Singularity is GREAT against the Cannibals and Husks. Only real issue I have is with Marauders because of their Shields and their penchant for dodging.

Yep yep. I invested all points so far into power damage and biotic combo damage on my adept, just to fight brutes. It's a lot of fun playing with other adepts too, because they just warp while you shockwave, killing anything exessivly fast.

In one game all four of us were adepts, we took down a banshee in literally 15 seconds.

Yep, although it took a lot more effort than I really would have expected.

Perhaps I was unlucky in the matchmaking process, but I kept getting put into groups that either didn't go for objectives at all or were simply unable to get past the fifth or sixth wave. Lots of people bringing in unleveled characters, level I firearms with no mods on them, never using their Medi-Gels or missile launchers...

Ugh. On more than one occasion I felt like I was being trolled.

I wonder if we managed to kill the million Brutes, though.
