Wicked Interactive Teams with World Online Gaming
League to Offer Ladder Competition
This Weekend for Explosively Popular Mission Against Terror TORONTO, ON September
24, 2010--Wicked Interactive, a leading North American MMO publisher, has announced
that World Online Gaming League (WOGL) will organize a special ladder competition
this weekend for its popular free-to-play shooter Mission Against Terror (M.A.T.).
The competition, celebrating the second explosive week of the game's open beta,
begins today, Friday, September 24 and runs through Sunday, September 26.
"Our community has been instrumental in getting M.A.T. to this point so quickly,"
said Stephen Tucker, CEO, World Online Gaming League. "While the game is still in
open beta, we expect a fun weekend, with a strong turnout from some of our best
"We are deeply grateful to the WOGL community for their input," said Sam Ho, Director,
Wicked Interactive. "As we work on implementing it into the next upgrade, we thought
we'd up the ante again with a no-holds-barred ladder event to showcase the open
beta's new modes. Kudos to WOGL's talented tech team for making the ladder a reality."
Mode: Bomb Mode
The Payoff: Points rewards to winning teams + other in-game surprises

The highlight of the open beta patch is the debut of one of MAT’s most popular game
modes, the Phantom Mode. Phantom Mode is a spin-off of the highly popular Bomb Mode.
In Phantom Mode, one team plays as the ghosts who are highly translucent figures
that are difficult to see but are restricted to melee attacks only, and they’re
out to bomb key locations around the world. The other team is identical to that
of Bomb Mode--soldiers with anti-Phantom training who are out to drive the ghosts
back and save these locations from being bombed.
Along with Phantom Mode are two brand new maps to keep the white-knuckled action
of MAT fresh for the Closed Beta veterans. Black Mountain Institute is the first
of the two, taking place in a research institute filled with highly confidential
information about their origins that the ghosts want to destroy.
Tableland Base is the second new map, consisting of a tactical training facility
for elite soldiers at a secret location somewhere in the Antarctic where soldiers
are given special anti-Phantom training. The stakes couldn't be higher as the ghosts
are out to keep their origin a mystery and prevent the training of new soldiers
in the fight against them.
Complementing Phantom Mode and the new maps are brand-new items. These include various
clothing options that will be available in the item shop. Players can also look
forward to a handy C4 Tool Clamp that will speed up the act of diffusing the bomb.
Weapon aficionados will love the new weapons to test out on the battlefield as well.
The P90, the M249, a Flying Tigers edition MP5, an engraved XM1014, and the lethal
Broadsword make their debut for open beta.
M.A.T. is set in a fictional time not far from our own, pitting two teams against
each other all around the world. From the male civilian with a vengeance to a war-torn
female soldier with something to prove, characters from all walks of life come together
to fight for a common goal.
Gamers looking for a serious shooter will be glad to know that M.A.T. was the only
first- person shooter game good enough to be sanctioned for tournament play in 2009
by the China Electrical Gaming Committee, a nationwide online gaming tournament
organizer that is part of the All-China Sports Federation.
