MAG Patch 1.02 Arriving Overnight

The official MAG blog posted the details for patch 1.02 in anticipation of its overnight release. The update goes live at 1am Pacific (Wed., Feb. 17, 2010).

Most of the things players will immediately notice center on refinements to the medical support role. Once patched, only players with a kit to revive fallen comrades will be marked with a cross. Likewise, only those carrying that kit will see the "incapacitated" tag on downed players.

Behind the scenes the patch changes stat keeping in the game to support future integration of them into the MAG.com website and fixes XP requirements for levels 36 and 37. Server improvements are also part of the deal with improved performance to reduce lag in heavily populated games.

Also on the blog the devs posted another in their series of tips. This latest one covers the Commando class. They also promise another tomorrow focusing on the Direct Action class.
