I bought Mass Effect: Infiltrator to help ease ME3 single player. Is there any advantage to uploading intel as I get it? I know that uploading it early means that my readiness will slowly drain away, but I'm wondering if uploading a bunch at a time decreases the bang per buck, so to speak. Also, does holding onto intel decrease its effectiveness at improving Galactic Readiness?
Other posts seem to indicate that readiness delays at a rate of 3% per day. My own experiences roughly confirm this.
This means that if you don't play multiplayer for a day, you will need to collect another 12 intel in the iOS game (4 intel per 1% readiness) simply to get yourself back in the position you were in prior to taking the day off.
Since it will never go below 50% and holding onto it does not decay its value, I would recommend holding them until just prior to starting Assault the Illusive Man's Base.
Upload it straight away...
This is because if you play a multiplayer game, only 1 game is needed, the readiness doesnt drain for that day, i also think the same applies if 2 Intels are imported from MEI as this would equal 1% and aslong as you gain readiness in a day it won't degrade.
I would personally play multiplayer to nullify the degradation as it is fun plus you gain something like 4% per Bronze completion (with deaths)
