Will The Flock .vs. 3C Live up to the hype?



It's what many have wanted to see for some time. CLAN WARS. But not just conflict between clans, in this instance, two of MAG's most notable and controversial. 

The Dark Flock, long considered one of MAG's best clans with an all-star roster, has also seen allegations of lag-switching and exploits in their past. "they're lag-switchers. PERIOD." Is how khknight described them.While 3C, was probably MAG's first villainous clan and they quite simply, savor that role. While they've long been the home of many elite players, their founder Sithis, told us in a past interview how badly egos and arrogance have affected their clan. And then there are the heinous Quitting Out allegations that have been confirmed several times by former members. A MAG forum poster who refused to go on the record said "Everyone knows they quit out rather than lose, I guess it's Zipper's fault for allowing that super loophole in gameplay, but still." Our source inside The Flock claims that morale is pretty high, their members feel confident that they can win." One of the the 3C members who actually asked not to be quoted (which was a surprise for us, 3C has never been shy) was less politically correct "We're gonna murder them, they don't stand a chance and they know it. We still can't believe they accepted the challenge. its gonna be a #$^& bloodbath." We'll see if we can get some on-the-record quotes from notables like Sithis, Terrorist, Jumpman, Mudmaster and many others.

One of the sidenotes to this match-up is certainly the fact that many of MAG's long-time, elite players have moved on due to the game's mostly-brilliant concept, but sometimes-flawed implementation. Are the rosters as star-studded as they once were? Or is this a matchup of a much watered-down Flock and a pale reflection of what 3C once was? There's no question that Zipper's lack of a True Tutorial, Clan Support, blatant Game Imbalances and almost total lack of New Content after the game's 90-day mark was the cause of the mass player exodus after the game's new luster wore off and monotony set in.

So who'll win in your opinion? Will 3C reign supreme? Will The Flock put 3C in a casket? CHIME IN. As always, our comments section is open for business.

UPDATE: Here are a list of players available from both clans. It seems many of the long-time luminaries may have atleast returned for this standing room only, one-night only affair. Its something that Zipper is no doubt taking note of.

  19. hmmm... I have a problem with this these two clans have virtually similar talent. Which means that the defender will always win...right. So why didn't the play more of a Suppression match instead of a defence map which heavily favors any good clan who defends it.
