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 :)

I'm one of those who well not doesn't bother playing but can't get on, because of the shoddy server times.

 

I've said it before and I'll say it again if the sever times were more Weekend friendly then there would be alot more people on testing the beta.

 

I've gotten alot of people jumping down my throat giving out about me and other people "Moaning and being ungrateful".

 

I'm just giving my two cents.

I also agree about the server times (in UK anyway) , I work full time and often dont finish till after eight and then it isnt on at weekends . I have just tried to have a go and it asked me to do a 36 mb update (1.22 i believe) and then it did that install where it was doing the peer to peer business at an astonishingly slow speed ( the original took about 8-9 hours ! ) . I was keen on having a go today and now I have to leave PS3 on overnight to be able to get a game ! Thing is i work late tommorow and go to Ireland on Saturday so there is My MAG story for the week . Non to Productive all in all . Still i really like the game and have been able to play about 3-4 hours in 3 weeks of having this BETA !!! Thats crazy !

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....

If ppl CANNOT get on to play then that may be a server issue that needs looking at (more servers)..

But if ppl are getting the codes to play then just not bothering to play!!!!

Then something needs to be done, when theres ppl out there that do want to help & contribute to the development of the game..

 

I suggest that you "Think before you speak" or look at the post as a whole & not just cherry pick the piece you want to moan about.....

So why did the 15thousand or so people 'who cannot play' even apply to get Betacodes? Just for bragging rigths? It was known beforehand that game servers will not be available at 24/7 (even hours were mostly known in adwance), so if you can't play at designated time, don't even bother to appy for the code?

 

I do admit there's been considreable amount of difficulties with Mag playtimes (like Sony/zipped **** up wioth summer times and timezones) but the hours were set and servers (usually) up in announced times.

I've hardly played since getting level 40, don't really have much incentive/reward for playing. I know it's a bit sad, but I prefer online games that do this, like Red Faction, Warhawk, COD.
Or I'll play with a group of friends.

Yep.. I see your point and I do admit that without EFR clan I might not be nearly so motivated spending these hours with MAG since I have also reached Lvl40 and highest leadership.rank.

 

Otoh, there are three PMC.s to level up, so techically there's 120 levels worth of gaming. :)

what a great beta tester. You have stopped testing and helping test the severs because you maxed out.
