New permanent badge: amount of surface covered with your fields

liyu1liyu1 ✭✭✭

Like illuminator but here instead of mind units, u capture surface. Same mechanics as illuminator, e.g. badge tiers, more multilayers are more beneficial then single layers or biggest surface covered in your stats. It would be a badge where rural players have advantage over city players. (i play in both, but it's just silly that my rural "larger" fields don't have any other advantage then a small amount of MU). What do u think?

    Although I understand where you're coming from (it's unfair that city fields get more MU than rural fields*), this still feels like two badges for the same thing.

    * Although in some senses city fields are also more work than rural fields because there are more portals that may hold potential blocking links.

  • I've a friend who lives in a small town, there he can play with 8 portals. He is ENL like me and his son is resistance. Both are level 9 after 1 year...

    Ingress needs find something new for this people.

  • Would be nice for a global challenge:

    bronze: 100 km^2

    silver: 1000 km^2

    gold: 10000 km^2

    As much as it would be nice, I don't know if they track that sort of thing, so it would lack retroactive stats.

    The only thing that will truly save Ingress is more players. The things that need to be done are those that will attract more players and raise the rating on the stores so that it's seen by others. Tidy up the Prime client so that it is less painful to use, and more intuitive.

    As for new ideas, Redfection (not Red Faction) is one that I know some at Niantic have shown interest in.
