Mass Effect 3 Multi: Operation Resurgence

Well, another week is coming to a close, and you know what that means. In my new self appointed role as Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer Herald/Shill/Mouthpiece, I am all excited about the N7 bounty weekend. I've got this all figured out now; there is an "Experience" week, like Operation Beachhead from last week, alternating with a "Bounty" week, like the upcoming Operation Resurgence.

Well, this week is set to be the easiest yet for players, as all you have to do to get the Commendation pack is play on either Firebase Condor or Firebase Hydra, both of which are in the new Resurgence DLC pack, a free download!

Bioware has said that anyone who fulfills the requirement will get the commendation pack, which is guaranteed to include one of the new race/characters also included in the download. This is good, since I have blown a ton of credits since the DLC came out (I downloaded it the minute it was available) and have not received anything!

In any event, see you in the trenches!

I am down for this.

I was surprised that Resurgence was free actually, but pleased quite a bit.

The way the packs are worded it seems only Spectre and Super Spectre packs have a chance for new races. I didn't figure this out until after I bought two or three veteran packs.

Of course, since then I bought two Super Spectre packs and got a Batarian...sniper rifle, and that was it for the new stuff! Arrgh! I don't even use sniper rifles!

You are supposed to have a small chance for rares in the veteran pack, which is what the new races are (yellow border). I have bought several spectre packs and got nothing, so I'm getting a bit suspicious.

I've seen several people playing as Batarians, Geth, and Krogan Vanguards. How are they getting it?
