What does everyone think about this game.

I have found that I am just not a fan of huge multiplayer shooter games. I like the idea, but it never seems to work in practice. I just got done watching the E3 video and demo of the game, and it just seems way to complicated, and I think it looks a ton like Killzone.

I haven't seen anything on it in a couple months now.
You know me though.
Smaller = more fun. Just my opinion.

I don't think I will like it. I think it's awesome as an idea, and it might be fun for players who enjoy spending hours doing strategies. I just want to go to a game, kill a few and have some fun.
I am not sure my UK connection can deal with so many people at the same time, even if at the end we are just organized in small squads.
If my squad has done amazingly brilliant, but we lose the battle as a whole, I would be disappointed. If my squad is so small that my clan cannot join together, I will be disappointed. If I am assigned a role in a battle, and I cannot play in any other way, I will be disappointed... etc.
I like choosing my style, because I am not that good, and I prefer to play in my confort zone.
I like playing with my people and have a laugh online, not just play some competitive mode.
I don't know... I guess I will just have to wait and see how it turns out to be.
IG idea of 60 people map seemed all right, until I played. I deffinitely prefer 2 teams based games, with 8-12 players each. I find it more fun.
But that's me.

2 team 8- 12 seems to be the best I agree. Anything more than that and I get annoyed

It just gets frustrating because nothing even really matters anymore. It would be one thing to plan, and work a strat, and move squads around, and play General and just watch the battle from elsewhere, but playing in them is just too much chaos. Of coarse I cant judge a game I know nothing about, but if R2 has taught me anything about big match ups its that everything is so random, nothing really matters.

Its just who gets the random grenade toss. Who turns their sights on the guy you've almost got killed and snags it, who spawns right on top of you. Its just utter chaos. I don't like them.

I'm still interested in seeing more on this game other than the one clip I have, but Idk....it would have to be something special to get me playing it.

Isnt this a game made by Sony for Sony or something? I just picture a FPS Home. affraid

I just think that the battle being so big, I wonder where your victories will matter. Sure you might win, but if your overall team is shyte, whats the point? What do YOU get out of it? Oh maybe you bring your rank up more. It just seems too big. I might give it a shot but, I dunno yet. At least credit to zipper for dreaming big Smile

R2 60 player games have taught me that big (or 'epic' as they like to call it these days) doesn't necessarily mean better.

Has anyone seen the E3 videos? It basically looks like a cross between SOCOM and CoD4. And another thing, it's HEAVILY objective based. As a matter of fact, I'm not sure if there's even a Deathmatch mode.

But the maps look HUUUUUUGE Smile

Eh, didn't look that bad to me, provided you keep organised with your squad. Still unsure about it, though there's supposed to be a beta coming out soon-ish

256 people really don't matter if your squad plays perfect you can still lose. It will be pure chaos

I'm looking forward to this game. Zipper has proven that they can make a addictive/fun online game, so I trust them that MAG will be great.

Not necessarily, ever played Battlefield? Zipper have gone to great lengths to show how they can organise the chaos and remove any other problems like lag etc. Plus, they do have quite a good pedigree, so I'm gonna side with the optmistic crowd... for now

Again, with the right size maps and a squad system that actually works, it could actually turn out alright Smile
