I went and forgot to start the mission where there is a bomb on Tuchanka. I received an email from Grunt saying the bomb had gone off and Eve had been killed (plus the Krogan were all pissed off about life and seemed to have their violent tendencies back). Does not doing this mission bugger up my chances (without spoilers if possible!)
However, the difference that Galactic Readiness makes is way more significant (The difference from the bomb mission is something like 375 ou of a possible 7200 or so, but as your EMS is a percentage of your war assets, your galactic readiness will affect it by anything up to 3600 points).
So keep playing that multiz.
