Keep up the good work Zipper.
how about with that 300kb u remove a house or 2 from svers map???
LOL....Completely agree. I'm Raven,and out of 25 times attacking sver, we've only one once...lol. Still having a blast with this game tho!!!
It's not the maps that make SVER tough to beat. I don't know what it is, but I've narrowed it down to basically that there are more SVER players, and with that there are more who are quite skilled, and there are more who are higher-leveled who have better skills and more experience in-game. I think that's the primary factor. More of the SVER players were in the beta and therefore have more experience with the game. They also are more dedicated and seem to have more high-level players that have unlocked the best weapons and skills to give their side the edge. I'm Valor by the way. And the reason I don't think it's the maps is because even on my own Valor maps when we're playing defense, SVER seems to absolutely destroy us. We can win on defense almost every time when we're defending against Raven but when we defend against SVER we always seem to get our asses kicked. So it's definitely the players that are whooping us, not the map itself.
just beat sver in one of my 1st matches
Nah, statistically, it can't be the players. With the amount of players per game and the amount of players per company, statistically we have to assume it balances out and rule out the human element. What are left are equipment and maps. You pointed out that you've gotten whooped in defense, which would indicate an equipment superiority. I think that's the fault of that f****** DLC armor coupon we got from pre-ordering the game at gamestop/ebgames. That armor is an unfair advantage, which gave them the edge in the first games and allowed them to level up and unlock equipment faster, as you suggested. I think their maps may be unbalanced too, although I can't say if it's just because of the equipment advantage. I do know that on a few occasions my platoon's captured points A and B in a sabotage mission within the first two minutes, and we never managed to get C. Last time I played that match, we captured A and B and managed to get C 16 minutes later. I know for sure that is A and B get captured on Valor's map within the first two minutes, 90% of the time we will lose that game. Anyways, they're definitely not unbeatable, and my positive win/loss ratio would support that, but they're definitely harder to beat than Raven.
It's the gun... Their gun is way too powerful. I mean how the f*ck can you snipe with a machine gun?? When I picked up a SVER gun, I was killing people with 1-2 bullets opposed to about 5-7 bullets with my Valor gun...
I'm loving this game, and I'm loving the fact that Zipper is fixing it. No glitches or hacks either...looking at you Modern War-failure 2
You are exactly right. SVER guns are just overpowered. If you don't believe it...go toe to toe with w SVER member and see who survives. Or, pick up a SVER weapon and use it. I played through the BETA with each faction and I was able to max out (lvl 40 on the BETA) my SVER character way faster than any other. I've even read about them being as much as 3x more potent than either Raven or Valor. (no proof...yet)!
Its called using a Bi Pod. Btw, Valor are just pussies with virtual training like MGS G-Soilders
No, Raven are the virtual training guys. Valor are battle hardened soldiers, and SVER are hooligans. Get it right. Either way, it's a game, so everyone's virtually trained.
@SasanovaS1987, Amen to that....
Sorry...couldn't resist!!! Gotta love those Red Devils!!!
Roll on tomorrow!
Nice! More lag reductions! Not that there was really much to begin with anyway. This'll prolly iron out most of the hiccups. I think I'd prefer some graphical enhancements and map balancing more though. Great job nonetheless.
Yeah, I never get lag, but there are some issues. Sometimes I won't spawn for a while, or I won't be able to switch guns. It's rare, and forgivable, but still annoying.
cant wait for sum DLC
Yeah they need to announce some DLC plans. I am pretty interested to know where they are going to take this game.
One big thing PS3 has over 360, it can be update alot an can take alot of memory an the user can upgrade anytime for any price. Been happy with my 500GB Samsung hard drive for awhile and soon to upgrade it to what I been wanting. 1TB hard drive. Yep.
Can the PS3 carry a terabyte drive?
PS3 can even use 3.5 hard drives, problem is that the hard drive sits outside of the system, because it is to big. Seems like 360 users are just mad because I'm right, I be happy with the Elite but not so happy with the lack of memory, before my Elite stop working. I fill up the 120GB pretty fast.
Nice. let'S hope the patch make the game better.
Try playing the game first dude, that way you can suggest what changes need to be done.
the only way you can say something like that is -you have not played it -you did not like it, and that is that -you are bashing on an excellent, unique, match by none in consoles game
Active support. Not like you guys where you keep releasing patches that need more patching.
i'm betting on 3 more patches before the care package glitch gets fixed permanently. i tweeted to them if they were going to do anything about the one man army noob tubers... still awaiting reply. Its been over a month now. the lag is just stupid. You would've expected them to give us decent dedicated servers knowing how much success they would've had with this game.
It's funny because it shows how lazy they are. All the glitches for care packages has been similar. He even admitted to trying to find a deeper code to fix it and that they only patched a more general code. They are so lazy and stupid.
and in front of bunkers especially the right side(from attackers point of view) of CD. Its really hard to get close to those bunkers. The other 2 factions' domination maps are better at that, they have a lot of trees or containers blocking the view from the bunkers. Hope a patch to fix that balance issue comes soon, as for weapons I don't find their weapons overpowered.
KiLL3r In$stinct for the win
@alpha-male22 I couldn't agree more i honestly find infinity ward one of the worst developers in terms of update they need to learn from Guerilla Games and also zipper.
CoD4 was really a fantastic game IMO. Sure it had a few issues but what game doesn't? But today, MW2 is unacceptable. First of all you have games like BC2 and MAG offering minimum lag with 24-256 players. What's IW's excuse for unplayable lag at 12-18 players? Anyways I'm not going to start ranting on them because I'll create a wall of text and I tend to do that a lot. The point is, IW is horrendous at supporting their game.
I totally agree. Cod4 was great, MW2 is just garbage. When people can hack the system and get level 10 prestige what is the point of playing the game?
and im only on level 4, so domination mode should be awe inspiring
You see, thing is, people have to give this game a try first. Yes, on the surface, and to somebody who hasn't played the game, it will look very generic. But you have to play the game in order to discover its riches. Lol that sounds extremely cheesy but it's true. The gameplay is such a breath of fresh air from your everyday shooters. I know everyone in here is hearing "Teamwork teamwork teamworkzzz!!!" But it's true. Never have I had the pleasure in playing a game that ACTUALLY requires it. Point is, you go into a match, guns blazing, not communicating....You. Will. Die. End of story.
It will be bro, it will be. Are you RAVEN?
I just got my copy in the mail yesterday and popped it in last night. I'm on RAVEN and diggin' it. Any shooter fan really needs to give this game an honest try. Edit: I think I'm going to bail and go play right now. See ya' online guys.
im on valoe, i dont like AK 47s the communication is sooo rewarding. loving every second
I'm loving this game so far, even more so with a clan. We just trashed Raven on Valor defense, and actually had a good laugh over the mic's doing it. With the right bunch of people this game is b*tchin'. Squad Lead - MEDI...no wait that hit me in the face. Medic - Well couldn't you have just caught it in your teeth? Squad Lead - I've heard that's a perk on MW2. Medic - ROFL.
VALOR FTMFW! .. us valors kick S.e.v.e.r ass 24/7 . me and my clan are one of the best out there :) join valor and dominate sever ! .. HOORAH!
Tell me guys how many people are currently playing this game online? Is there a large amount and is it increasing everyday? Because I want to get this game down the road when I finish school will it be worth it?
Because they are running so many servers for support. However, last night there were over 6000 on the server I was on. SVER is always populated, Valor being next, and of course Raven (my faction of choice) had the least. Edit- Seems like each time that I have played...the numbers increase. I tend to play late night and there are still good numbers out there. I think that as word of mouth spreads about this actually being a good game that the player count will increase.
Actually, I was having trouble getting critical mass for domination @ about 12AM PST last night as Raven. I never did manage to have enough patience to sit in the queue long enough to get a game. I ended up playing acquisition instead but had to wait in the queue a fair bit, too. To the point where I went in a different room to mess around and listened for the mission briefing audio to know when the game was starting. It was pretty disappointing having this happen with the game being online only and only a week old. I realize it is like 3AM Eastern @ that time but there is a world wide audience. I want to play the game when I want. This what I hate about on-line only and makes me worry about what happens to this game on 3/2.
Every time I played as Valor and went up to SVER I lost.
Lately Ive been reading alot of articles about SVER being unbalanced. Of course since I am playing them I suppose I wouldnt notice. But, is it really that bad??? I mean in all honestly I will agree that RAVEN's ass has been kicked quite a few times by us lol. But come on Valor!? Really?? You guys beat us about 50% of the time when I play at least. And Ive picked up your weapons before and maybe its just me...but they feel completly different from ours. Much more powerful and accurate. Is it that bad???
It's the maps, they are unbalanced.
Unlike IW which is on its 8th patch with Call of Duty Modern Glitchfare 2. Imagine if IW tried to create a 256p game?! It would be a total disaster.
IW, take some notes here. You guys might learn something new...
some new maps for one thing. maybe a night time maps and a snow map. the game needs currency to buy cloths weapons and ect. the game needs more weapons and progression. the game needs more modes.... Mag needs a training mode for squad leader,platoon leader and ICO. when you tryout squad leader there are no instruction on how to use your leadership prowess and ect as you rank up... i wish Mag had level exp players vs play level exp players. it is hard playing a game with first time buyers who have no clue on Mag gameplay. i love the game but it has some short commings..
that we will see some new maps and clothing options down the line. I love the idea about the training for leaders, because it can be a bit overwhelming your first time out. I think that there will be some more modes...but that will wait until they iron out the issues with what they have. I just love the fact that we KNOW that this game will have great support.
I´ve had the 5:5 error a couple of times so it´s good to hear that zipper has acknowledge the issue and trying to fix it. I also think that the should fix a couple of other issues as well, the waiting time is the most annoying thing to me. You know when you change spawn point and need to wait even longer than if you had not changed the spawn point. If I waited 20-30 sec to respawn and during this time choose to change the spawn point I shouldn´t be punished and need to wait even longer. Also, zipper really needs to tell the gamers how the game works. Yesterday I spend 2 credits on a bipod for my assault gun but I couldn´t use it on my game. I have no idea why not, maybe the bipod is only compatible with the assault gun you start with (I have the second best assault gun), but it didn´t say that so I´m not sure. And also, what are those burn off towers good for? Why should you try to hold them? Why not just go for the bunkers to begin with so the enemy can´t respawn as close to you? It bets me. But it is a really addicted and fun game, I never thought I would like this game as much as I do. Maybe it has something to do with those exp popping up when you take down an enemy or any other action and that it is really addictive to try to level up and buy new equipment.
Those have to be taken out in Domination before the main objective points become active. The longer you can hold them...the longer you hold off attacks on the main objectives on your side of the map. Here's a pretty good link to explanations of all of the targets in MAG. Hope it helps!!! http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
S.V.E.R. is the best. We won the most beta runs. (4 out of 5, I believe). We dominated the beta and haven't lost a beat into the real game. S.V.E.R. teams work just like that, a team. From what I can tell other factions aren't coordinating well enough. Plus my gun is awesome. The people saying it's more powerful are right and wrong. Bullet for bullet it is more powerful but the firing rate is slower, making it less effective in some cases. And having played the game for a while I noticed that a single bullet usually takes 49 hp, then the second takes 50, and you are left with one. This is the enemy's gun. So it takes 3 shots to kill a S.V.E.R. player. Where it usually took me three shots as well. Who knows, the game is incredible. PS: It really helps if you get the medic equipment first!
havn't you noticed SVER is starting to lose on Aqu and Sabo maps now. Last week SVER was crushing, now alot of the better player's are vet'ing and newer players are figuring the game out. Although I do like that SVER-Vipera SMG that thing is sweet. Sure they are still dominating the Dom maps but I am sure that will change in the next couple weeks.
Have you noticed that in domination it seems like at ANY given time there are only about 800 players on Raven??? I never get to play them in domination which is a shame because I love their map
