When I imported by Mass Effect 2 save to Mass Effect 3, one of my War Assets were surplus resources which were collected from the Normandy SR2 when the Alliance was doing the retrofit.

I am wondering, since my score of this asset was 25, would it be higher if I got more surplus resources in Mass Effect 2 and started a new game in Mass Effect 3 with an updated Mass Effect 2 game, would I get a better score or does it remain at 25.

    Can't access the wiki from work, but pretty sure it's a binary -- "if more than X resources from ME2, then +25 war assets". May 26, 2014 at 7:52

    Yep, think @Shadur is right. Most of those bonuses are binary, but they might add up to one single display value.

You can get 10, 25, or 100. For 100 some theories are: 250,000+ total resources with at least 15% being platinum or at least of 100,000 of each resource BEFORE you start the Collector Base mission. Also, if you have too much, there's a bug where you get only 10.
