Yeah the Krogan became a threat after they were given the technology to leave their world to destroy the Rachni.

Yes, their planet was a shithole and Korrigans were uplifted after their third world wide nuclear exchange. They had smashed their own species into the ground twice and once they got off their planet they bred like locusts and thus the Korgan wars as they started talking what they wanted rather than staying a good little warrior race.

Are you aware of how horrible that post was?

TBH I can't see even the uplifted krogan being a problem for the reapers, since they lack Actual Jesus and are retarded. Its quite remarkable how Bioware manage to so consistently get their dilemmas wrong.

The krogan are a threat to the reapers in the sense that the krogan might conquer and wipe out races that the reapers are interested in harvesting.



Homo sapiens! What an inventive, invincible species! It's only been a few million years since they crawled up out of the mud and learned to walk. Puny, defenseless bipeds. They've survived flood, famine and plague. They've survived cosmic wars and holocausts. And now, here they are, out among the stars, waiting to begin a new life. Ready to outsit eternity.

No they aren't. Not naturally at least.

Harbinger says the Krogan are a sterilized race with their potential wasted. It's likely that the Reapers would want to harvest them if not for the genophage.

My understanding is we'll get to see everyone do something, and then get pasted. Image

The implication of Mordin's dialogue in the demo is that the turians are doing the heavy lifting but they need krogan support otherwise the Reapers will just roll everyone with no issue. I'm not willing to bet how relevant this will turn out to be though.



What is Project Zohar?

Tough question. Better ask Admiral Hackett.

My computer can be quite convincing with its South Korean impression. At class right now, but as soon as I get home, back to ME3. So far, starting at level 30 is somewhat hilarious, although adepts always feel grossly overpowered until the game starts throwing shielded enemies at you.
