Both of these guys are Zipline veterans and are going to help close out the year with return appearances on the show. Ask away!

Has giving the backup weapon slot more flexibility ever been considered? I would like to have more options than just the two guns. Maybe allow a player to choose not to carry a backup weapon at all in favor of an additional or heavier gear item, or even just do away with distinguishing between primary weapons and backup weapons. This would allow players to create even more personalized loadouts.

Obviously, we want to know what your idea is to improve player counts.

 

And lets see how festive their mood is with regards to openness.

 

If you were designing MAG 2, what gameplay features would you add/include and/or change from MAG 1 and what types of gamemodes would you like to incorporate?

Obviously everybody's concerned with phase 2 of Zipper's attempt to increase player counts so I'll ask something different:

 

I look forward to the colored crosshair options in S4, and I was wondering if it could be done in MAG, too? I especially would like that for the Move controller since the crosshairs aren't always in the middle of the screen like the DS3 and, in the heat of battle, can be hard to know where you're aiming.

Two things: *Both are of equal interest,

 

1) Would it be possible to transfer our clan tag's and clan lists to the new Socom for its release, so that we could opt into remaining in our last and/or current MAG clan when we first unbox it, (Should large clan support exit)?  ... Or will large clan support exist?

 

 

2) Can we expect Zipper/Sony to produce a gem like MAG again, in the not so distant future?  I mean something very very close to MAG, but rolled out with a massive ad campaign, and with fewer required patches to the final version.  It seems (freezing aside), that what we have now is what the player base required on release day.

Iv noticed that allot of lvl 70 players play suppression to boost their kdr,  are there any plans to make it so you get less exp. through suppression or make it not effect you overall stats?
