Yes, yes, yes, hell yes.
I think ALL maps should go neutral.
It's rediculous the amount of help that some maps get with obsticles and crap in the way.
Raven's dom USED to be the worst to defend, now it's the easiest.
SVER's dom is easy to defend because getting the bunkers down when 2 others can cover the back of each other is almost impossible.
Valor? Crap bunker coverage, so the front lines go down quick. It's easy to get into the letters from the side where there's no gate. It's crap.
This way everyone can see what the others have to do without vetting over. My hatred for SVER and Raven won't allow me to do so.

in my mind, the only game mode that SHOULD be faction neutral is acquisition, because they deal with stealing enemy transports. dont fuq up this game please by making this mode faction neutral
sabo shouldnt even be neutral. i had a good idea this morning on the aspect of sabo. have sabo like a 2 round game, in which if the defending faction on their own map loses, it goes to round 2, giving them a chance to reclaim it. say sver and raven are battling it out on ravens map. sver whoops some ass and takes it...it should give raven a chance to reclaim their map. if they are successful in reclaiming, then the game is over, if they lose...again...then thats it. if sver loses the first round, then thats it. go back to the deploy screen. and redeploy.
you guys have already started to destroy this game by 1.) adding pay to play character slots, 2.) making a game mode that you didnt beta, which in turn you ended up losing money on, and 3.) completely fuqed up the knife making it OP while nerfing all the other weapons.
you should put some of that dev money to new weapons OTHER than AR's, LMG's, and sniper rifles. make us a new shotgun, e.g. maybe a dbl barrel shotgun, or a combat shotgun that dont need to be cokked until you reload it, or a new pistol, e.g. a six round magnum pistol, or a new machine pistol. or perhaps maybe a night/day cycle with night vision goggles and flares and laser sights to go with night cycle which would bring more tactical aspects to the game.i still like this game very much, but if you keep going the way your going with it, im gonna be with alot of the other people saying this game is crap.
you ask for our opinion yet you dont take it...if your gonna be that way, dont ask for our feedback if your not gonna take it
i mean i realize all this deving takes money, so give us some things that we will GLADLY give you money for

I'd go faction-neutral. I have enjoyed playing the other modes like that much more than being stuck in one particular position for each map. I realize that this kind of kills the whole 'shadow war' and loyalty to a particular faction and such... but Zipper kind of killed that (and, unfortunately, interest of most clans) with the silly idea of changing through all the factions to get the trophies.

No no no!! Domination should not be faction neutral! Suppression being faction neutral - fair enough. Tbh im not too keen on sabotage being faction neutral. I dont think any of the modes (except interdiction) that have contracts awarded should be faction neutral. My reason for this is that it ruins the shadow war story, the storyline behind MAG itself. I always suppose that zipper could turn round and say that you are trying to fight back and reclaim the facility or something but thats rubbish.
Im pretty sure that zipper is proposing this to try and be helpful (so kudos Zipper for once again trying to listen to the community) but the only people that this would please would be the nerf and OP kings/queens that moan enough about weapons to get them tweaked, and those that have been moaning about attacking certain maps i.e. S.V.E.R. acquisition - these maps arent difficult when you know what to do! They only want a shot of say defending a map like this for some more xp and to boost their stats - its pathetic!
So zipper I admire that you are taking action from listening to the community (on some things) but please do not fold under pressure from these very noob-like whiners that have not yet found out the best way to attack certain maps.

Instead of going Faction Neutral, allow the Faction to win the map and hold it until defeated. For instance, if Valor is attacking flores basin transfer and win, then in the next game they must defend at the flores basin transfer. This would in essence make the MAPS faction neutral but at the same time game play would be more war like. You could even track how long a faction is able to hold another factions map. From day one of MAG I have wished after fighting a hard battle and winning that we got to keep the objectives and defend them in the next game!
