BioWare "Considering" Mass Effect 3 Ending Feedback

The Mass Effect Facebook Page has word that, contrary to previous indications, BioWare is actively looking at the negative backlash to the conclusion of Mass Effect 3 and the resolution of the Commander Shepard trilogy in the action/RPG series (which has apparently inspired FTC complaints). Here's word:

We are aware that there are concerns about a recent post from this account regarding the ending of the game. In this post it was stated that at this time we do not have plans to change the ending.

We would like to clarify that we are actively and seriously taking all player feedback into consideration and have ruled nothing out. At this time we are still collecting and considering your feedback and have not made a decision regarding requests to change the ending.

Your feedback and opinions are of the utmost importance to us. We apologize for any confusion this has caused. Our top priority regarding this discussion is to keep communication with you, our loyal fans, open and productive.

No, I don't think so. 3000 is as far as the meter goes, but that's not Max. Max is 4000 or 5000. (strangely, 4000 seems to lead to a better ending than 5000.) At 50%GR, that means 8000 or 10000. You can get 8000 by making every decision focused solely on gaining War Assets, by scanning every single solar system 100% and by having the perfect decisions (again focused on war assets) from ME1 and ME2.

10000 is impossible to achieve, it seems. I had 7900 and I did every single quest, had every system scanned, I just had a few minor decisions that cost me some War Assets here and there.

You sure about those numbers? I got around 6400 (total) and I got the good ending (where nobody on earth dies during the brief snippet in the endings). Is there a better ending I don't know about?

So with your GR of 50%, you had an effective rating of 3200? Yeah, you got the "Earth doesn't die" option, but you didn't get the "best" ending, where you get a 20 second snippet of someone with an N7 badge drawing a breath underneath some rubble.

In Mac Walters' mind, that's apparently considered the best possible ending.

You don't get that until 4000. The weird thing is, though, it seems that from 4000-5000, Anderson doesn't die, but if you've over 5000, he DOES die.

I'm sure that made sense to someone as well. So if you want to keep Anderson alive, you have to meta-game the War Asset system.
