Having 23 letters is the right path. The format of the passcode is xxx#xxkeyword##xx where x is a letter, # is a digit and keyword is a special word.
The rate limit on entering passcodes really doesn't help with this one.
I finally got the 23 letters and I found out what the keyword is, but I cannot see how I'm suppose to find three numbers with just 9 letters since 7 are in the keyword, and 7 more are needed for the format (aaa#aaKeyword##aa). Am I doing this right or can I repeat letters?
Edit: I got it!!!!! First time decoding, my mistake was that I rearranged the letters in alphabetical order. Thank you to everyone who gave advise in this discussion.
The gear in these are not very good. 40 L8 bursters, 10 L8 resos and 20L8 cubes plus a couple VR shields/Viruses once a month is not going to drastically shape the landscape .The people buying these are buying the badge and since you cant but them multiple times(even if you could it's terrible value for just the goods) it's really not that bad. You get "more" gear by attending a FS location every month and hacking the restock/redeeming the passcode(minus like 4 shields which are not hard to get)
Do I think it's going to net them enough money to turn things profitable? Not a chance. Could they cross the line eventually with going to far on the gear packs in my eyes? Yes. But for now this is a great way at pumping back character badges for people that want to support the game, missed a badge, etc etc.
Quit being butthurt about a little gear with an older Character code. Sheesh. This is about double the gear you get from a restock portal after FS 12 times a year.
If it really hurts that badly, It sounds like you were already on your way out, so cyah!
Where were you when they sold them as codes? Literally no difference except you can't send emergency passcodes which is definitely more pay to win than a limited time offer
I would definitely take up all the ADA medals. 💙
So it's not the same as buying items for anomalies with character medals? Yet every anomaly has loadout packs with character medals...
It seems to be the same thing to me.
Either way it's not like you can keep buying these it's one time only like Brian said. After it's gone it's gone. Just like load out codes, just like anomaly packs, just like FS packs.
It's not like these come with a thousand bursters and VRLAs. It's pretty close to every single loadout I've gotten.
You still have to play the game. The existence of this changes absolutely nothing. I don't hear people complaining at anomalies and 1331 events about the gear cards, all of which you pay for. Again none of which is enough to give anyone an unfair advantage. You still have to farm. And high level gear is still incredibly rare in the store. To my knowledge since the store came out high level items were only rare limited time drops. Not permanently available at all.
Okay then. I'll be submitting my account deletion request tonight. This stuff was gone over in nauseating detail when the store was brought online originally and Niantic ended up promising us it would not be done again in the future. If that basic promise cannot be kept, you're no longer trust worthy.
