After unsuccessfully waiting in MAG's matchmaking queues for an hour and a half last Saturday afternoon, it dawned on me just how small this title's online community had become. MAG may have sold 900,000 copies since its release in March, but owners of this groundbreaking FPS have been gradually abandoning its online arenas. As the months go by, it has become increasingly more difficult to get into matches. And despite being a great game, it has some serious matchmaking and presentation flaws that have hurt it in the long run.
The author added "Update: Since some readers are expressing doubt over the length of MAG's matchmaking times, I've posted a recording of myself sitting around for 15 minutes in the queues without being able to join a game. This was recorded last Saturday afternoon."
