What stats would you like to see?
So on the topic from different recent threads about community engagement, I remember an old post from Year Two with the stats up to that point:
and when Ingress Prime was released they added more information in a blog post stating:
"Ingress launched in 2012, and now, more than 20 million downloads later, Agents in more than 200+ countries have participated in more than 2,000 real-world events and visited more than 1.2 billion Portals. "
The game has changed significantly as has the community since then (especially after Prime), so I was thinking, what stats would we like to see now on how the game is going as we approach the 8th anniversary of Ingress?
Obviously some of these they don't want to show due to business reasons and bad press, but here's my ideas/requests:
- Average monthly hacks.
- Km's walked in Year 8
- Total Drone hacks
- Total Missions completed
- # of Unique Portals Visited using Prime
- Total beacons deployed
- Total Apex used.
What other overall statistics would people be interested in?
Ingress is a competitive game so I’d like to see comparisons between Enlightened & Resistance:
Then for more general:
Fields destroyed and MU destroyed. Easy to read from comms.
But we should take in consideration the ones flipped should not count toward the medal, as they weren't destroyed by xmp.
Thought of another:
Number of active players
Number of battle beacons deployed
Number of portal scans
It would be amazing to see a live dashboard of these numbers somewhere, even if it were only updated monthly, it would be fun to see the stats and Niantic could even spur some faction vs faction competition through it
I found this from 2018 as well. Even stats like this across all the games would be great.
1 billion installs vs 25 million installs. That shows the power of that intellectual property.
AFAIK, Ingress is at a fair bit more than 25 million now, but still under the 100 million mark. But the games definitely cater to two different audiences. OCD collectors vs territorial grinders.
