Everyone here seems to be missing the point...was the Mag better than the other two faction tanks? Unequivocally, yes. However the VS paid for it in almost every other area...worst infantry rifles, check. worst AI MAX, check. worst ESF, check. So, the only real advantage the VS had has been nerfed into uselessness. Guess I'll be spending a lot more time on my NC alt, until SOE comes to it's sences and reverts this stupid over nerf.
