During Zipper's latest podcast Ben Jones Director of MAG live, confirms 256 player clan matches being implemented in upcoming patch "soon." First ever in console game history!!
Would love to see how these clan meeting go. It was bad enough to get 8-16 of us in the same room without it turning into chaos.
Thats probably because you play HALO where all you're used to is jumping around in pink armor and pure chaos.
Ive been in many clans. From Halo to Rainbow Six. And just FYI.. Halo clans are more competitive than ever. There is a reason why it is on the pro circuit of gaming. Have you seen how competitive they are?
I think the 256 player clan matches will enable competitive gaming to grow up and start a new class of professional clans.
I admit I haven't played MAG in a while, I have been playing KZ2, LBP, and MNR a lot lately. I am going to have to bone up on my MAG skills in time for clan wars. I loved the 256 games, it is so damn huge and the gameplay isn't as chaotic as you'd think with the way they broke down the squads and give you objectives to localize the battle that could change the war.
I like mag it is solid to above average and if u give it a chance how can u not like it...
It is great news
Indeed, I'm very excited for the impact this could make on MAG and the impact MAG can have on competitive gaming of the future. Once clans realize this game has NO LAG, I think there will be a mass influx of clans playing MAG. The future of MAG can represent is extremely promising. I can't wait to see how this develops!
That's the real question. I mean in the two day's I tried out MAG before returning it, I didn't hear more then 5 or 6 people talk. Most people were "Rambo" style players. You run, get popped and respawn and repeat.
I would say MAG has THE highest mic density of all PS3 games. Probably more than Confrontation.
I'd suggest trying to speak up in the pre-game lobby to see who has a MIC and go from there. You can hit me up if you ever join VALOR - black-yo-eye. I'm in clan and the game is unlike any other and plenty of fun!!
A lot of people have mics on psn but dont use them...cause generally people are older n just want to play games... that whole no mic this is something xbox users say to discourage ps3 buyers
''First ever in console game history'' It only does the Revolution. 256 players, FPS Online in consoles is already a revolutionary game.
is revolutionary on any platform
Waterboy you obviously have played games on the PC yet. This is quiet an achievement, for a console but this is nothing new on PC. Planetside had thousands of players playing on one map with decent graphics for it's time. PC gaming is in a totally different league compared to console gaming, so please refrain from making such uneducated comments. In no way am I saying console gaming is useless, PC games and console games have to work together to get better. They truly push each other forward in gameplay design and overall standards. I have every console and handheld this gen, although my 360 broke soon after it's release and I've yet to replace it.
I think that everyone saying that people on the PS3 don't have mics have no clue. Not everyone has one, BUT usually when I'm playing Cod4 (I hate MW2... sold that shit long ago! lol) at least half of the people have mics including me. Of course my "mic" is my PS Eye, but it works.
My clan memebers or anyone in general was having a hard time hearing me. They said I sounded far away ALL the time. not to mention I got a big tv and had to turn up the volume to hear what they we're saying. Not a good combination. It's a great camera though!
At least you two can buy the MOVE at a reduced price.
That thing about PS3 don't have mics is a thing from 2006, like the old thing PS3 have no games or Blu ray is not needed.
I have a nokia bluetooth connected from my previous phone.Almost any bluetooth can be used but not many people know this
I have not played MAG yet, so is it too late for me to start now? I really want to get this game but I'm not sure if it will be accessible for newbs like me.
It's accessible but be ready to die and die a lot if do not know what you're doing. Do what the squad does especially when there's a clan involved. A clan is determined to usually move and do things as one, so if you're being a b!tch of a lone wolf and not helping the squad, you'll be kicked. At least thats what my clan does to a-holes that dont listen. Oh yeah, have some patience. You'll be dying a lot unless you have some dependable squadmates fighting next to you. Also, chances are you'll end up fighting vets that have spent 300+ hrs on the game. I've met people who's put down 750+ hours on the game with 12 vets. Also, squadmates can hear you from anywhere BUT all other teammates can here you within 20-30ft. Make sure you get Med Kit at lv2 and Resuscitation ability at lv4. Dont get anything else before you get those two and remember to change your loadout to equip it. It'll give you a ton of experience.
I'm pretty patient when it comes to MP and I do prefer teamwork over lone wolf techniques - I guess that's why I'm interested in the game. Thanks for the info and bubbles to you mate. I'm inching closer to getting the game now.
Most important rule of thumb if you're a newbie in mag is to stick with your squad leader & squad mates. MAG is a very deep game. If I wrote down all the benefits you get just being near your squad I would write a novel & I have no time for that because I've been playing mag since the last update all day everyday. I've got a aquisition match going right now as we speak. Lots of players! Lots of clans! Lots of lone wolves! Lots of strategy! Lots of heAdsets & recharging headsets! Lots of Fun! Winning a game is like winning the world cup or superbowl! I can't stress Enough how incredible mag is. The weapons get better & better. Look out for the shotgun! It's no joke. Time to go. Get involved people. Don't be afraid to ask questions online. This is what multiplayer is all about & MAG perfected it.
