Re: where is everybody?

It's been quite hard to get a game as Valor tonight, at about 8 I went on, played one game, then tried to join another unsuccesfully for about 15 minutes, then at 8:45 it stopped letting me join a game at all :smileysad:

Re: where is everybody?

I've kinda lost interest in this game since I've been playing it. After my hype and excitement died down, it felt like a average shooter. Great what they done with all the people in one game and the scale of the game. I will definitely rent the game, and maybe buy it depending on how the final product and community turns out.. I'll still play the Beta when I'm not playing other games, and keep reporting bugs though!!!

Re: where is everybody?

What I see is that MAG is not rental games.. There's no mandatory storyline (at least not yet) singleplayer modes with fixed encounters that gives game play-once experience. Instead MAG is about making communities (Squads) and maintaining them, when you start to care about group success and teamwork MAG starts to grow a lot bigger game.

Spot on man! Even now in the beta we've managed to gather a good group of people together who would have probably never conversed otherwise, and who will probably continue to work together in the game once it is released proper.

 

Ha, it might sound silly to some of you but, I never knew the chat function existed until I got MAG beta and joined EFR. :smileyvery-happy:

Well, many people had numerous problems with PSN randomly disconnecting them over the past week, up to the point that they (and I :/ ) couldn't log on to MAG/PSN during peak hours. Looks like the "maintenance" didn't work out so good...

Re: where is everybody?

[ Edited ]

Personally i think the steep learning curve turns people off from this. Yes i know it's a beta but many games which are great but have a steep learning curve lose lots of players quickly (ETQW for example). For MAG to survive it needs to be made more accessible, people don't have the patience anymore to give a game time to grow.

 

IMO

I had the same, loved it at first, then passed that stage and it sorta died down, kept playing though and learnt more about the game, now love it to bits. :smileyhappy:

Apparently quite a lot people don't bother playing at all.Afterall there's supposed to be over 20 thousand betacodes out there (30thou total?) by now.

 

On the other hand, there are people who rack 30-35 MAG hours/week (that's allmost all sessions possible).Don't want togive names but :smileyhappy:


 

Maybe they should of put something in place so that if you were lucky enough to get on the Beta trial (& a heads up b4 everyone else) you were required to play a minimum amount of time each week?

 

Then if you did'nt!!! you are effectivly black listed for the next game trial that comes along....
