MAG Sabotage Mode Goes Faction Neutral Starting… Now!

Jeremy Dunham's Avatar + Posted by Jeremy Dunham on Jul 22, 2010 // Sr. Community Manager, Zipper Interactive

It’s been almost six months since our massive online shooter, MAG, was released to stores all over the world, and the team here at Zipper Interactive is celebrating by giving something back to fans who continue to support our game and its community.

That “something” we’re passing along is also something that many of you have been asking us for with great enthusiasm for months. And so, it is with great pleasure, that I announce that starting today — right this moment in fact — that all maps in our “Sabotage” game mode are going “Faction Neutral!” If you ever wanted to play against the Valor PMC as a member of the competing Raven Industries on a map that belonged to the third faction, SVER, that option is now yours! We’d like to think of it as a way to experience existing content in an all-new way, and we hope you feel the same.

The best part? You don’t have to download a thing to do it. We’ve already set everything up so that all you have to do is log on to the game, select the Sabotage game mode with whatever your PMC of choice may be, and have fun. It’s just that simple.

We hope you enjoy this gift to you as much as we enjoy giving it, and once again, want to thank each and every one of you who have supported MAG in its first half-year. Hopefully, you’ll like what we have in store for the second-half just as much.

Been Playing MAG since launch! We’ll actually its all I play! Great to see that Sabotage is going Neutral and as well suppression too! Man, just wish more MAG players would get into Interdiction. Maybe new map DLC should be free?

I really dont like this. A big reason why i LOVED MAG was the fractions individuality they made a BIG deal about belongin 2 a fraction. Now they throwin them all n a bowl n stirring them togetther. I dont see any thing supportin the fraction individuality gear, trooper pack indictation all of it even when u level cap no congratulations on stickin n there reward just a HEY WANNA LOSE IT ALL N DO IT OVER O N BETTER YET DEFECT. NOW it would have made since 2 who ever has the others shadow war flag GETS TO DEFEND ON THAT TURF! that would breath some life in to the shadow war. Just be more innovative about changes a simple implement of who got who flag gets 2 defend would’ve made all the difference hope this gets read by Jeremy Dunham. KEEP FRACTION iINDIVIDUALILTY ALIVE

@KOOLWIIP there is no way they can dumb down a gun turret. think about, they are naturally powerful if anything they need to fix the sound of how they guns and grenades sound.

u guys above me are idiots. its simple don’t like it don’t play it. i don’t like halo so i don’t play. i like mag so i play it. i see nothing wrong about neutral maps at all. mw2 is nothing but those types of maps so go play that and quit your griping. before you start talking smack about a game that you probably still play learn to spell neutral. its not n-u-e-t-r-a-l. its faction not fraction you idoits

I really appreciate MAG efforts but actually Sabotage is the most balanced mode in the game.
You should do it in Domination and specially in Acquisition. There is no fking way to win Acquisition defending as Valor. attacking SVER in Domination is almost a free lose.

Thanks for keeping the game alive anyways.

Thats awesome guys! Keep up the good work. This game is ten times more entertaining tham MW2 and BF:BC2 combined.

@ 53,55,& 57 Kudos… you are right on. it makes no sense! this doesn’t really kill MAG as a whole. however, I feel it does ruin sabotage. I also feel it comprimises the integratiy of the game. I honestly can not understand why Zipper would do this? it’s just awful, MAkes No Sense what so ever. I really wish they change Sabotage Back to the way it was when they change suppression, atleast that isn’t a bad idea. this change to sabotage truly was Bad Just absolutly Awful. Not an improvment! @ 59 I dislike/hate senseless name calling but come on’ these are just strong opinions & aside from the spelling your the idiot. @ 60 good view on Sabotage pre-changes however please don’t encourage them to change Dom & Acq I think that would ruin the game entirly! Zipper I understand you are always wanting to please the commuinty by making changes & improvments. But, surly you didn’t feel this was going to better the game? this is a complete compremise of the original work!!!!! continue to create DLC that meets demands of the comunity instead. Please if one person or small group can make a difference I Beg! Please Change Sabotage back to it’s original integeratiy & leave a good thing well enough alone!

I usually ply domination but i will be playing some sabotage if that is the case. I will probably try it today. VALOR!!!!!

The only part of MAG that drives me insane is that the inability to create more than one character at a time. I think we should be able to create one of each PMC and switch between them as often as we wish. It would be much more fun if you switch effortlessly between the different factions.

IMPORTANT AWESOME IDEA THAT JUST MAKES SENSE:
add the option to demote the assigned leaders in a game instead of a kick fight

ALSO JUST PUTTING IT OUT THERE:
random weather
VALOR – SNOW
RAVEN – RAIN
SVER – SANDSTORM

I got this game a mouth after being out and other then Killzone2, Halo3 and playing Warhawk here and their this IS the game I play the most. Keep up the good work Jeremy and Zipper I think you have something here that could go on for years.

I’m with Trieloth: MAG is ten times the game that MW2 is. I HATE that game. I think that you’ll do great as long as you don’t do ANYTHING that IW does in MW2.
