        I don't know, I just remember it being a big deal that they need the relays/the Omega Relay, then when they didn't have them it didn't end up mattering. Logistics matter when you're trying to build a big space scifi epic and even if the Reapers were moving at lightspeed it would've taken them ages to move into the galaxy and position themselves to star actually using the other relays.

          The Citadel was a giant mass relay that pulled all the Reapers from dark space immediately into the heart of the galaxy. The Omega Relay was the only relay within 6 months of the spot where the Reapers were entering the galaxy, so destroying it slowed them down more

      Honestly, the reapers should have stayed in dark space for decades, if not centuries. 2 should either have been the point the series pivoted to other issues, or focused on uniting the galaxy so it’s ready for when the reapers do turn up.
      That way, there’s potential for winning conventional warfare that doesn’t rely on the fact that the reapers forgot that they can turn the fricking relays off

        1 simply shouldn't have killed Sovereign. He should have remained the sole big bad guy. 3 games of effort to defeat one reaper. Then the dread sets in realizing there is a near infinite army of reapers out there, but they are like thousands of years out, so there is maybe hope the galaxy can prepare for them, but its far from certain. That's cool. By ME3, you were soloing Reapers in your mini-tank. Thats fricking lame.

          It would have been a better idea to leave Sovereign alive, good thinking. Perhaps at the end of 1, you injure Sovereign enough to where he retreats and in 2 he uses the Collectors while healing. Then, 3 could be uniting the galaxy for a final fight against Sovereign and once defeated you are left to ponder whether they can prepare for the army of Reapers who are thousands of years away

          They really could have carried the trilogy with Sovereign. Harbinger was such a punk in comparison. Even at the time, I thought it was pretty lame how destroying Saren's body while Sovereign was controlling it was enough to stun him so hard, everybody could just blow him up.

          You’re using bioware logic.
          Before they attacked the Batarians, nobody knew they were in the galaxy. There was no fleet protecting the citadel, and they had their entire armada concentrated in one place.
          Bearing this in mind, there is literally no reason for them not to attack the citadel immediately and cut the galaxy off.

              They alerted people due to their plot induced stupidity, not because it was necessary. Prior to arrival, they could simply have waltzed up to the citadel because nobody except a fringe group even believed they existed, much less done anything about it.
              It’s a moot point anyway, because even if the galaxy was aware, took them seriously and sent every military asset to the citadel, it would still do jack shit to stop the combined forces of the reapers if they wanted to take it.

      It took the Reapers 2.5-3 years of FTL travel to arrive back in the Milky Way, instead of instantaneously seizing control of the Citadel and shutting down the Mass Relay network. If you think that's bad writing then you need to play the first game again and pay attention to Vigil

      • 4 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        Apparently you needed to pay mlre attention. Vigil says that when the "reapers" came out of the citadel relay, it was so devastating because it immediately wiped out the promethians center of government. And how the reapers designed the citadel specifically so that all the organics they seed, will always make it their central hub of governance. And the relays were set specifically to guide which solar systems the new organics would colonize, so the reapers could use the relays to jump from cluster to cluster with no way for the organics to escape since all relays lead back to the reapers.

        >Reapers don't have ftl, they rely on the relays
        No, they just made the relays so that ORGANICS would rely on them. There's a couple planets you can fly by in 3 where the text blurb is that people were experimenting with alternative FTL and the Reapers considered it a bigger threat than nearby military targets. Which implies that the eezo/relays aren't the only possible way of getting around. Doesn't change your other point that them just flying in from dark space was incredibly dumb. These frickers are MILLIONS of years old, operating a fifty THOUSAND-year cycle. A two year trip for them is like if their car broke down one day so they took the bus.

        Ftl travel and mass relay travel are two different things. All of the ships have ftl drives, that's how you move around the star clusters, nebulas, etc. The relays are for jumping between clusters. The nearest star to us is 4 lightyears away, and the normandy flies that distance in a few hours and uses a good chunk of its fuel. The horsehead nebula is 1500ly away, and requires a mass relay because no ahip has the fuel to make that ftl trip. The reapers needed the relays for these super jumps the same way everyone else does.

        Mass Effect was pretty much a TV show already.
        And you just know they would frick it up by focusing on the reapers right out the gate, even though they are the worst of all the antagonists in the series.

            What killed ME3 for me was throwing all the moral ambiguity out the window. TIM was a cool guy with very questionable methods, and Cerberus itself had a very pragmatic and pro-humanity bent which could have made for an interesting faction to align with, but they all got Reaper'd in 3 so none of your choices with him in 2 amounted to anything. They forgot how to write Renegade Shep too so if you go that route your character is just an butthole for no reason.

            Javik was a dlc crewmate, he doesn't count. ME3's best content was the citadel memberberries dlc and mordin's mission with the krogan.

            Disabling the citadel relay only delayed the reapers by two years. It took them centuries to wipe the galaxy of the prometheans. A two year delay is literally insignificant and it means that apparently they have ftl travel without the relays, which contradicts everything about the ME universe.

            That's the Arrival DLC, it literally says this will only delay the Reapers, and they show up 6 months later. Also, they have faster than light travel, that's a huge part of the lore

            Reapers don't have ftl, they rely on the relays. The asspull arrivals doesn't explain shit. They basically said that the reapers were chilling just outside the galaxy near batarian space by about .5 lightyears. And that this was their only galaxy they visited.

                That's not how relativity works. In relativity, anything with zero mass must travel at exactly the speed of light.

                Every game with FTL travel throws out relativity because to do otherwise would introduce extremely simple means of backwards time travel.

                Yes, which was all fine and dandy in me1, but 2 and 3 ruined everything on the scifi side. The reapers can't make big jumps without relays, this remained true through every game. So having them invading batarian space at the end of me2 doesn't add up. The batarian systems neighbor the alliance systems, and it took the reapers 6 months to cross over without a relay linking them. They entered batarian space in two years of travel. That means that the reapers had to have still been within the galaxy, just on the outer rim, at the absolute furthest. This renders the whole having sovereign stay behind completely meaningless. It makes their entire plan meaningless when they could have just hidden themselves amongst the blackholes in the center of the galaxy with their reaper forge, and a relay and no one ever would have known.

                Without knowing either the Reaper starting point or their average travel speed you can't sat where they were hiding. The only determination you can make is that it takes 6 months to go from the Omega Relay system to the next closest relay, which is why the Reaper invasion happens the way it does

                You can very easily extrapolate that they were four times the distance from alpha relay to alliance space, since 2 years is 24 months and we can safely assume they traveled at full speed. On this map the alpha relay, which we've been calling omega even though that's the center of the galaxy one, is on the bottom in the viper nebula.

                Are you using proper orbital mechanics, accounting for relative motion of bodies, and taking relativistic effects into account?

              • 4 weeks ago
                Anonymous

                Yes, and also seeing as how in those six months between arrivals in ME2 and the start of ME3, the reapers managed to wipe out the entire batarian empire, without having a relay, but then needed to use the relays for their conquest in me3, it just shows that bioware are hacks and there's no consistency, coherence, or communication amongst their staff. But hey, at least the reapers were built by magic space whales and there's only been 12 cycles and the magic space whales have been chilling this whole time and in those 600,000 years not once did it occur to them that since they built the reapers, they should and could probably build a way to fight them.

                Relativistic effects mean the moment you have FTL travel you can go backwards in time (FTL lets you visit spacelike separated events and spacelike separated events have a frame-dependent chronological order, so if A and B are spacelike separated, A* and B are spacelike separated, and A* and A are timelike separated with A* occurring before A, you just hop from A to B then from B to A*). Every scifi media with FTL will reject relativity.

                Stop mixing up the Alpha and Omega relays, you idiot! Omega was the point of ME2, it let to the collectors in the middle of the galaxy. The Alpha relay was the batarian one shep blew up on the edge of the galaxy. And to address your point, we know the size of the galaxy. If it takes 6 months to get a few light-years, then four times that long can't be much further than four times that distance.
                Again, these robots are older than you can imagine, and they're operating a cycle that's as long as human history. The fact that they gave a shit about the Citadel secret relay in the first game is retroactively moronic.

      M1 is practically a different series entirely. They set up this cool universe with all this potential and the writing staff changes almost entirely from the second game onwards, who promptly throw everything out the window for a generic "ancient evil awakens" style plot.

        That was the plot of ME1. But yeah, there was a lot more going on with the alliance and council that got diluted and ignored in the sequels. In the first game you really feel like newcomers, while every subsequent game they're constantly paying lip service to how youre newcomers but it feels like humanity has been dealing with the council for for centuries, rather than most human characters including Shepard being old enough to remember pre-contact. Plus an off-the-books blackop like Cerberus goes from maybe 50 people performing unethical experiments in a handful of isolated shipping containers on backwater planets, to a massive organization that is able to field armies large enough to fight overtly over entire planets. Its absurd.
