So I was wondering what are your expectations from this year's Anniversary event due in November. Any ideas for Niantic?
The only things i would expect would be just the double AP and maybe the ability to do 4 mods on one portal but thats it
Double AP is nothing if you should #StayAtHome because of the second wave
This game lives by events and thus an event is BADLY needed.
a drone-related #StayAtHome challenge
I was talking about making the anniversary medal COVID, if Niantic ran out of designs.
They will give us some free Apex maybe... Would be fun with a drone home event
I expect the scanner to work without issues and the server not falling apart.
That'd be so nice...
I would guess Double AP, something related to the number 8, some free fireworks.
Maybe it’ll be that drones can temporarily create links down the paths they travel due to ADA doing a technical thing if you want a storyline. Perhaps Dark XM influences the Drone and links are all red, so can cross over.
or each player can deploy 8 lvl8 resonators lol for a limited time..... haha
that would be a real pain to recharge and defend after the event
A new badge with a tier for people who Recursed and made it back to 16, double AP, and Apex to be temporarily reduced to 1x1.5
In-App markers for uniques.
You're gonna be disappointed.
The anniversary medal for Y8 is probably the only thing we can pretty much be guaranteed at this point.
Double AP? Subject to how Covid is going on, and whether Niantic will still do it with the invention of the Apex. x4 AP would be incredible though.
Deploying Buffs? IIRC, last year only let us deploy x3 R7s so two agents could make a P7 but eight were needed for a P8. We already have double deploy of R8 and R7, so that’s depending on how long the buffs stay around. Maybe deploy more mods?
At this point, who is to say, this year has been a rule breaker in many ways so it’s not unrealistic to assume that events are going to break the norm.
Whatever happens. Stay safe Agents 💙💚😷
but recursed already have a badge so why need for another badge? ppl make the recursed such a big thing its fine as it is..
Expectation: 2x AP
Reality: Free Apex
I doubt they will be doing double ap next anniversary.
I think they'll do double AP. In the US we'll need some relaxation after the election civil war starts. The rest of the world releasing the collective breath, they'll probably want to relax too.
not the time for double ap if we cant even have virtual events then double ap very unlikely so idont know what we will get besides the badge.. some free apex in store to claim or so at most would be my guess.
Free CM Locker for Beacon Collectors.
yes like for 8/08, 4h of apex instead of 2 days (like last year)
A pack of beacons with the anniversary medals from every year.
Well, they did "agents can deploy three level 7 resonators per portal" for the seventh anniversary last year.
It's not unfeasible for them to do "agents can deploy 8 level 8 resonators per portal" for the eighth anniversary, but I suspect they'll probably do four instead.
1.5 ap and with apex doubles that become triple ap
also extended time for APEX
Think their battle beacons will be done in time?
Oh yes the battle beacons, that could be the biggest thing for the anniversary event if they add it.
An additional purchasable locker, Apex,
Anniversary badge would be cool, we have had one for every year.
Also would like to see a road map for what is planned for the coming year ahead for Ingress
Anniversary badge will come 100% like every year, besides that i dont know what we will get how things look now long since we had event that give badge etc...
We will certainly get an anniversary badge, no question on that.
Battle Beacons may be a big thing if they can get it done. Maybe a new badge introduced for a drone hack amount or drone distance during the event?
