Sorry. At least we have a "voice" I guess. I used to love samurai showdown for sega -still do -but I haven't played it since the 90's . Same thing will probably happen to MAG. Sony better have something good up their sleeves and I hope tonight's announcement is good news. If not I'ma gonna get me the American product- why buy foreign if it aint better. huck huck
Sony is all out today with the 6pm thing so they probably wont get a reset until tommorrow but the request was received and posted.
I'm not that "tight" with him although he seems like a really cool guy. I'm just the shooter captain for the MVP program so this is one of the things I am allowed to do, let them know if the community wants a reset.
You should let him know that there is something wrong with the server that the simple resets they've been doing from time to time isn't fixing. It has been going on for months where like 1 out of every 4 or 5 games we play in Sabotage the match that launches is 20 minutes of non stop rubber banding and freezing until the match ends. The lag spikes every 5-10 seconds effect everyone that is in the game and it never stops lagging until the game finishes. Sometimes you can play through it and other times it's so bad you have no choice but to back out. Then you queue up again and the very next Sabo you get launched into may be perfectly fine.
This has been going on since sometime around summer of last year and it has been getting worse each month with the frequency that it occurs. Prior to that the servers never launched games like this where the lag was spiking so bad every few seconds that it was unplayable, not in the smaller modes like Sabotage anyways, and yesterday this was happening not 1 out of every 4 or 5 games but 4 or 5 games straight. With the small player counts we have now it shouldn't be happening at all if the MAG servers were being properly maintained unless they've got us stuck on some already overused servers.
You should let him know that there is something wrong...
You just did
As noted, this is an abnormally busy week around SCEA, but your concerns have been rasied to the proper folks.
I'll return when there is more to share.

WOW! We actually got a mod to respond in a MAG forum. I'm speechless, as I'd thought they've completely abandon us for BF3 and CoD / BO. Good to know that they still monitor and support us. Hopefully we can convince them of giving us future updates and patches such as eliminating a PMC (cough, cough, sver) or just do away with the forgotten shadow war and just randomly place players on any PMC for every match (just like any other FPS title out there). That way, we wouldn't have to wait an eternity to queue into a match due to a lack of opposition.
Way to go @Twohothardware for getting attention. You legend!
MAG is the only online FPS game I love playing. It deserves better treatment.
It's a unique game.
Since PS4 won't be backwards compatible (but has cloud based PS3 games which isn't the same) there's no way i'll be buying games that I already have, so I'll still be sticking with my PS3 and really need MAG!!
yes indeed this game suks **bleep** cuz there alweasee **bleep** guys glitching tru wals or whatteva to be imortal etc **bleep**!!!!!!! seriuosly is that the new gamers era if yes why playing a online game if imortal s to cheat such stupid action i say we need to report cuz it is not normal !
