I admit I haven't played MAG much lately but everytime I go in now there is hardly anyone around. Interdiction is dead, domination seems to have a few people on. The only thing anyone seems to play is sabotage.

So it's not just me. Just came back from a few months of playing other games. Not a problem getting into Sabo, but that's so mind numbingly boring. Managed to get into ONE Acquisition game which used to be my favourite game mode. I was also stupid enough to buy the new map pack, and I haven't managed to get into a single game as of yet. I find this kinda sad considering that MAG was one of my all time favourite ps3 games, and it seems that it managed to die out rather quickly.

It is definitely one of the greatest, if not the greatest, online games of all time. People won't play because they think they'll be too overwhelmed by the 256 players. They don't know that there are different modes and that domination is very well organized. The only game that can match the intensity is Killzone 2. My PS3 headset has never been so valuble in a game. They need to put this in with PS3 bundles and possibly bring it down to Greatest Hits. Advertising on IGN. Double Points weekend every weekend or every other weekend. Two new weapons for each PMC per month for 4 months would get quite an arsenal in there. Packaging the game with the PS3 headset would also work.

I think maybe they have missed the boat... there wasnt enough players for a paid for DLC to work and it looks like the core players a doomed to long queue times until the game finally dies. I will be sad when it does, but I have been neglecting my other games in favour of MAG for poss too long.

I think they maybe need to inject some more simple game types such as supression, but rather than just fighting your own team, introduce this mode so you can square of faction Vs faction.
I personally like sabotage the best because its simple, in the other modes you have to rely on good comms, tactics and a decent squad leader, and this just doesnt happen all the time.
There is still life in MAG it just needs a boost and I think Zipper have some plans in the works that will help this game alot.
