Could you elaborate on this a little more? How does one faction have a lag advantage in the same game? What makes it an easy mode? Is that the better faction for a beginner and what are the differences between them?

From playing all 3 factions, I've always avoided death in SVER from jumping around moreso than the other two factions which I can most likely attribute to lag advantage. Something about shooting people as SVER, the shots would connect most of the time compared to being on Raven or Valor. When MAG first started out, the Devs favored RAVEN who they thought was going to be the goto faction for everyone since they look all high tech and stuff.

But the 12 yearolds and dudebros (not kidding, SVER voice chat is full of them) gravitated towards SVER and a lot of them whined that their duct-taped looking arsenal isn't as good as the other two factions. Didn't help that a majority of Zipper devs played SVER as well (from an actual zipper dev I played with a lot).

SVER weapons are god-tier and I pick them up a lot when we play a against them since they actually work and goes great with the lag advantage if you're on SVER. I've played SVER and found it utterly boring since we steamrolled through everyone with our advantages I mentioned and the bigger numbers we had over the two other factions. So whenever my team won over SVER, it felt like an actual hard-earned victory.

If you want a good starter faction, go Valor. They have decent weapons (unlike Raven), good defendable bases (not that it matters since bases aren't faction specific anymore), you get to play with good Japanese players (surprising, right? they play FPSes?), and its an actual challenge.

Zipper's main fault in this game is making all three factions imbalanced and they should have made the only difference cosmetic. Yes, I sound very bitter only because I loved the great potential that MAG had only to be ruined by incompetence. I stuck with it because I had great online friends to play with on a nightly basis.

grammar and elaborated more on one point. Oh and spelling.

He was wrong.


Just another reason why I don't shop there. He even went on a 2 min explanation that they shut them off for Defiance.

Please don't let that idiot sour your opinion of GameStop as a whole. There are hardworking and honest people who work for the company, not just the liars and cheats like this guy.

I like the people who work at the Gamestops in my area. The ones I consistently see, and interact with, are generally nice and are good conversationalists.

Only played a couple of matches so far but it's pretty fun. Got kicked off in the first match as some guy told me to shut the Fuck up as soon as I started talking.

So this is how AWESOME my Gamestop is. I recently traded with someone and got a heavily cracked red case of Mortal Kombatv DC Universe. I asked him if he any copies of MAG with the red case, and he looked, but they had none. He then asked if I just wanted the case and of course I replied yes. He went into the back, and got me a perfect condition red case for FREE! Now I know its not that big of a deal, I mean it is just a case, but thats one of the many reasons why I continue to do my business with Gamestop and ignore all the GS haters out there.

I hate it when they can just randomly kick you. Not sure if I want to buy now.

I played a game yesterday in the evening and I didn't get kicked out once. I died a few times however but other than that the team I was on was very cool with me. I didn't play with my Bluetooth headset though. I will do that sometime this weekend when I get the chance. But nonetheless, I like this game. The best 99 cent I spent so far, lol.

Ive played it a few times but stopped because people on my team were just bitching about everything. Its was older guys too. They just couldnt take all the new people who picked up this game and their inability to play well yet. At more than a few points people were actually screaming orders into the mic. Way to over the top for me.
Snipers kill this game as well. Ive never seen a game with more snipers. One entire team i was playing against were all in sniper positions. They never came out. Its very hard to track a sniper without being a sniper yourself so its a cycle.

Were you trying to play it lone wolf style like CoD? If so that's probably why you were getting bitched at. You're supposed to follow orders and work as a team.

Mannn, all this talk of people buying this game now makes me want to go put my copy back in. I put in over 400 hours during this game's prime, and I loved every minute. It was my favorite FPS or MP game this gen.

I second this. When it comes to gameplay, if you get into full squad games, I think it is one of the best multiplayer experiences out there. You really need to play as a team to be successful.

It's pretty hard to be a successful sniper in this game, especially since every mode except for one is objective based. With the one that's TDM, you can easily make your way behind the snipers and destroy them. Going against a full team of snipers should have been an easy win.

Glad to see servers are still up on this. When I picked up my copy, the GS manager said, "I'm pretty sure the servers have been taken offline." I just shrugged it off and said, "For 89 cents, I'll take my chances."
