Well ... I thought we´ve already decided on this.
Ok, I'd totally forget about this "magnificent" poll where Zipper had an unusual interest about player's preference. Here, they asked for faction neutrality, and ... OMG! People said "NO".
This post by Chris Roper, is mentioned how Zipper is concerned about players participating in the poll
"Thanks to everyone who participated in the poll – your participation really does dictate MAG’s direction for the future!"
Well. I'm really want to know how many votes had the current patch update to make domination, acquisition, etc, to faction neutral. As they mentioned in poll post:
"Roughly 48% of you voted to make Domination faction-neutral while 52% voted to keep it as it currently is and shall remain. While the vote count was close, keep in mind that the official Influence MAG fine print states that a change in game rules needs at least 60% of the majority vote for it to be enacted, so the gap was a bit bigger than it might first seem."
In "MAG by numbers" there are about 100,000 dedicated players, at least. Accordingly with your percentage of 60% majority vote for a change. All this means that in only one week there was more players asking for faction neutral maps, than the entire live of mag ???
I'm thinking seriously to put this game into the toilet, if decisions like this are made by listening all those baby criers. If they can't take a domination, acquisition, etc. map it's because they really don't have any idea about team work, aim, brain. And this point was clearly demonstrated on mag's birthday week.
How can you worry about these little problems without dealing with the bigger ones like lag switching. Or how on valor the saw doesn't saw anything. It takes 45 to 60 rounds to kill a sver guy. Or the best one yet is how they still can hit you from across the board with the shot gun. Its unfortunate that everytime you've updated this game you've darn near made it worse. Sver has the better weapons and armor that just eats bullets, raven has awesome guns and excellent gear, what does valor have? I play all three factions (valor under different account) and have to say that its almost impossible to achieve any satisfaction out of this game anymore. I guess its a good thing that cod and killzone 3 came out. atleast they do things about cheaters.
