Joystiq writes: A handful of tipsters recently sent in a link to a survey currently being distributed by Sony, which appears to test the waters regarding two updates considered for Zipper Interactive's big ol' shooter, MAG.
i don't like that idea f having an extra slot and having to pay even though its dirt cheap. But i guess if this is how they are going to manage there servers i think. I really want another character slot, i hate having to want to switch fraction but loose all my gear
I'm not into recurring fees unless it's an MMO that's worth it. I'm not sure it's worth an extra $0.99 to have two character slots when it's unlikely I'll play more than one character at a time, even across factions.
The only real thing I would pay for in MAG (though I've largely left the game) is a 3-Way mode where all three factions play against each other. In fact, that would be the perfect way to end the game. @Eagle Oh of course, the map has to be perfectly designed. More importantly there needs to be a great mode and a way to communicate: Imagine Squad A of SVER forming an alliance with Squad A of Raven to take out Squad A of Valor! It would be the perfect unique mode.
I wouldn't pay for it. I already paid 60 bucks for an online only shooter that lasted me about three months.
I have no problem with Sony adding the pay for extra slots thing. If you want it, pay the $1. If not, take the minute it takes to change one of the old layouts. Also, I'd LOVE new modes for MAG. It's the one reason why I don't play it more, is that I just get sick of the same maps. However, there's no way I'd pay $12.99 for just 1 new game mode. A few weeks ago I could've gotten Flow, Flower & TMNT Reshelled for almost the same price. And lastly, @alpha, that'd be an awesome idea as long as they created a perfect map design & objectives for each faction. I suppose I never even thought of a 3 way battle for supremacy.
I really do not care what they do now this game just pisses me off to much total unbalanced I have played all 3 factions. The LMGs are super over powered and SVER is the easiest faction to play as simple as that.
Paid? No. Give it to us.
I already paid full price
I already bought the game and I'm not inclined to pay more for it.
Yep, which is why a lot of DLCs are BS since they should have been included on the disk. Prime example is Ass Creed 2. When you met that lady, you know there was suppose to be something else there but instead they sold it off as DLC.
"additional paid character slot" What's that? I've never played the game someone explain it to me.
You can only have one character from a faction, so for example, you choose SVER you're stuck with them unless you completely restart. With this you're able to choose two factions now and switch whenever you want. At least that's what it sounds like.
Ahh ok gotcha thanks. I'm amazed I get disagrees for simply asking a question. Thanks again +helpful bubble for you
You're not completely stuck with a PMC at all. At lv60, you could "vet" to another PMC or stay on your old PMC but you'll be back to lv1. But you could also just stay in lv60 and not vet at all. All the experience you gain becomes Respec points.
I stop playing mag a long time ago sorry but its to boring. Nobody play this game how its suppose to be played nobody uses mics which is ashame i hope people get mics so i can play this again.
It should have been bundled with it like with Socom: Confrontation
You are 100 percent right because people who have mics tend to turn their mics off when other people in their squad don't have one. Its very annoying since this game depends on a lot of communication. Sadly of all the games i played i never played with a squad with even half of them using mics its very sad. I hope in the future they do a special bundle with mics and mag cause this game needs it asap.
I was one of those people playing without a mic until my god brother randomly gave me his Metal Gear Solid head set. The game is completely different when most of your squad has a mic.
I turn off my mic when I am playing Sabotage, I use it when I am playing with my buddies or if I am the squad leader. They should make the mic a requirement if you are a squad/platoon leader, that would at least encourage the rest of the team to use theirs. Colonel-Killzone, you should join a "mic required" clan, their out there I run in em all the time.
They did. The patch 1.05 made you more likely to have a leadership position if you have a mic on.
I guess the trick is to get people from your friends list to group together and build a team. I haven't played MAG, but it sounds like a good idea. I hope it takes off.
They should set it up so that everyone who has a Mic is automatically grouped together. that way they can work like a team how they wanted and the people who don't have mics can have their ass handed to them.
i love Mag !!! it is a great game. i have some problems with it. i posted my problems on their forum... the problems are still not fixed. the rec xp for half/full. when you heal someone with a half rec/heal to 50hp or 60hp; you get 10xp. when you fully rec/heal someone to 100hp/120hp you get 10 xp... it should be more balanced. maybe 7 xp for half and 10xp for full.. i spent about 8 more skill points for fully rec " for what!!!" i could of used those skill points else where.... i am a 5 time veteran and the "bonus" 10% is not much of a bonus.... it usaully is around 43xp to 75xp if lucky. WTF the new flash greanades are like solar flare from dragon ballz. lol i wish veterans would be able to aquire dark shades when using these greanades. the shades would protect us from the blinding light from the greanades. i like the new grenades but their has to be balance against their effects. the game needs new modes,new gadgets and "NEW" weapons not upgraded weapons. i would pay $12.99 if Zipper fixs the health rec xp, add weapons, add new maps and new modes..... Mag FTW after these fixs or addition....
So you disagree with someone saying mag needs mic wow n4g is full of immature children lmao. Mag needs mic and I will keep stressing this nonstop sorry but mag is not fun least imo why because its like im playing with the computer Ai is that ever any fun ?
Only thing people ever use mics for is trash talking, that is all I hear on games like killzone 2 and Cod mw2.
In most decent FPS games you won't stand a chance if you don't communicate with your teammates and use tactics. I never hear any trash talking but that's cause I always use party chat. @Sarevok - True. In death match it's different. Only need to care about yourself, and wasting everyone else. I was referring to BF BC 2 which I've been playing much lately. With party I mean like squad chat.
You make it sound like it's easy to find a party. ''In most decent FPS games you won't stand a chance if you don't communicate with your teammates'' Unless you play death match like me. LONE WOLF FTW.
Well this is the beginning of the end. When Socom 4 hits MAG will be deserted by the 6 players still playing and the devs. MAG was just s tech demo to test their 256 network anyway.
Thats what this damn game really need. The problem is we're stuck playing a handful of maps over and over again. Its BORING. Each game mode need about 4 more maps.
Just join a mic only clan and u dont have to worry about that problem.And if you tried of playing tha damn maps then switch sides like my clan did.We was with Raven now most of us is with Sver.And to b honest I cant wait to get back to Raven because their guns is so much better. But if any new maps or modes come they should be free because their is alot of ppl still playing MAG. 150+ hours and I dont find this game boring.I met cool ppl on this game everytime I play it.Maybe ya'll need to play with different people or something because this game is still great.
MAG's going to light up like the fifth of November.
correction - IF they implement clan matches
A recurring fee for is a big no no. A one of fee of £2 would be ok but anything more than that is a rip off. MAG needs to be more clan friendly, for a game built around teamwork its very limiting for clans. 8 in a party, no way to get multiple parties to the same game, and then if you hit level 60 and try another PMC it automatically kicks you out of the clan and your stuck until you hit level 60 again. Its the clans that would have kept this game alive but my lot hardly touch it now.
With my friends and most of the time I hardly hear anyone talk but it's funny because me and friend always make fun of them and call them out cause there quiet and never want to talk.And these are the people with mics lol that are sometimes quiet it's like there scared to talk to people.
Its very funny but also kind of a jackass move..
