So with Pokemon go getting a socially Distant Go Fest, I was hoping to see something similar other than just a boost to First Saturday. There should be something that can be done to make an Anomaly event that allows for social distancing.
Yeah.. i have suggested virtual mission day with drones... no response :( seems we dont get much events, even those that u can do from home safely i dont get it, why they dont make anything except [email protected] ?? now with drones we could do something since any real events we probably will not have this year ......
even a virtual anomaly with drones would be cool ? just having the FS which isnt any teamplay is boring and dull... give us team battle modes.... the Optima banner challenge global could be made doing with drones ...... its up to niantic only....
Ingress events works differently, and whoever suggested it virtually clearly have no idea how they work.
What can still happen are global events (Nemesis).
global and virtual can both happen, real event wont happen until next year but looking latest fevgames i think battles will come real soon with drones so u can be all negative u want seems thats all u do but never provide urself any better arguments.... real ingress events nobody expects anytime soon but there must be surely another options beside [email protected] drones doing banner optima could work for example
Obviously it can't work like a normal Anomaly just like virtual FS doesn't work like a normal FS. This battle beacon system has yet to be unveiled and may present new potential. Saying that it can't be done in any way shape or form shows an an unwillingness to think outside the box. Can it be done exactly how an anomaly normally works? No, but can there be a competitive event against agents under a time crunch? I believe so.
I want an chance to have the amomaly badge in the Ingress Store, just like the Character badges. Since not everyone can take vacation and fly thousands of miles to participate at that time.
hahahahahhhaha - wish there was a rofl reaction.....
I doubt they will do this.... anomalybadge is usually tied to either be there at place or remote charging like it was before or decode important intel stuff for your team....
I hope all this we are experiencing happens soon, we need to be in contact with other agents in an ingress event.
Maybe organise a player-made anomaly on 1st May around the world. 1st May is the IFS day for May and Labour Day.
Use all the free BBs that day, and maybe some more.
'Labour day' where?
Literally 90% of the world.
Maybe Niantic could support such a movement with an in-app medal for anyone who takes part in a BB fight on the day.
Why not just sell the dam medal......
Where's the fun in that. 😬
And the other 10% that 'miss out'
Yeah Less fun than finding someone who subscribes to start a beacon...
Real anomalies skip out on about 3/4th of the players anyway. This is probably something that can be done on a wider but very very local scale.
And even without a badge this is still doable. Just need lots of people to agree to do it on the same day.
Maybe that's where Niantic can help out. Places that really don't have any L16s around but still want to do stuff.
