Ingress is dieing, Niantic is dieing.. And now, they want us to die along 😂
Why don't just make an event featuring the Drone? That way everyone can play safely at home.
Maybe phase #2 “see with new eyes”, since the Drone has a new type of “vision”?
So much American & European **** hurt 🤣over bonus ap! its about time! we locked down, fought the dunny roll wars and finally we get some anniversary goodness here in Aus, love your work Niantic! looking forward to phase 2 and 3 :)
Never heard of Hironia before. Google resulted Irony wiki, but Hironia wasn't found on the page.
I’m still slightly confused on the wording regarding the anniversary medal. One might assume this IS the annv event, but is it? Doesn’t it usually start when this event will be ending?
It overlaps, I believe. "This is also separate from or independent of the Year 8 Anniversary Medal, which will be granted [...] after the conclusion of Phase 1."
I assume that the double AP, 2XL8 resos and 4 mods deployment are also just for the anniversary week. It just so happens that the Eos Protocol is also running that week.
I still dont understand why are we supposed to deploy 4 mods per agent ? is it to make the other team harder takedown the portals?..... seems counter prodoctive since we have a global threshold
It is quite unclear, but I think the email clarifies it. Phase 1 and anniversary bonus are at the same time:
Last year they announced the anniversary on the 12nd, lasted from 15th to 22nd and on November the 22nd by European night the anniversary medals were awarded.
Only gobal score can give the medal to agents?
Your score will give you, your medal.
Global score is reffering to VICTORY point , if treshold achieved victory point will be awarded to faction.
If enl achieve mark will gain 1 point, if res will achieve treshold will gain 1 point. if not, no faction gain any point.
Result could be 1-0 0-1 or tie 0-0 / 1-1
medal could be obtained in between first day of phase 1 or last day of final phase 3
if you fail to gain it in phase one, you can try in phase 2 or in phase 3
you can obtain it before year 8 medal, or after
It's an optional bonus, like double deploying L8s.
why hard? is not mandatory to deploy shields.
well no but focus should be capture portals not be able throw in 4 shields on them from 1 agent...
DEPLOY ALL THE RLA!
Awesome, thanks for sharing that. I missed the email, but that's more clear for sure. Was obviously hoping for a few more days of 2x ap, 13 million out from hitting 16 and seeing if it's possible to grind my way there for the better looking medal ;)
@NianticBrian EOS is fast approaching.
Can you please let us know what the new target is for EOS? Or has it been changed to DroneNet hacks?
As someone in a country where we are still able to walk/drive around (safely) and play ingress, I am grateful to be getting events again. But I feel for the agents who's countries are locking back down.
I'm sure the wheels for this event were set in motion before things took a turn for the worst; I don't believe after 9 months of holding back that niantic would drop one with this bad of timing intentionally. If things play out and half of the player base literally couldn't participate, I'm confident niantic will do something to fix it.
For months agents have been crying on the forums to bring back events and that's just what niantic has done. Now the sentiment has flipped and niantic are once again the bad guys, there's just no winning. I'm sure there is a lot of internal pressure to get things going again too as the other games were able to pivot better when lockdown happened.
All in all I don't envy whoever it is that makes these big calls. Grateful to have events but personally I would have continued to wait.
Having global events again is great.
We have had new features added, DroneNet, Battle Beacon and Kinetic Capsule.
The DroneNet still has the potential for global events to continue in a safe way.
What we have is Captures, links and fielding.
We have done this before, a few times. And these are objectives which are still unsafe in many countries.
I still believe that the best global events should be with the DroneNet
Drone Hacks and longest drone journey
Gain 3 media sets from drone Hacking
Utilise the Kinetic Capsule for something else, example Craft Rare Media, or the 8yr badge (not a fan of the latter)
I am going to enjoy playing "Real Ingress"™ for once.
Witam chciałbym jeszcze dodać że agenci powinni dostać dodatkowy medal za ODWAGĘ w tych trudnych czasach jakie nastały, za to że muszą siedzieć w domach i za to że ryzykują BOHATERZY 2020 roku BRAWO 👏dla was 🏆Pozdrawiam z Polski
Phase 2 details will not be shared until phase 1 is complete. But most guess its something with drones.
Are we any closer to knowing the details of badge tier numbers or phase balances?
yes, every day passes we are closer to 9 november, so close to know details.
Why could they not pick a drone hack count or drone travel distance event or a glyph hack point event or something that 100% of the worlds players could have participated in?
NEVER will be posible to achieve the "100% of the world players could partcipate"
Because you have big cities players and is always unfair for rural or small towns or anything else, there is ALWAYS people who cant participate in the events or cant reach the minimun number to get the badge.
For me personally and for thousands of player, was imposible yo participate in WAY TOO MUCH of past anomalies, because i live in Buenos Aires, Argentina and there is not an anomaly here or near, SINCE 2015!
People have to travel to other countries to play anomalies and some dont have the money or the time to do it.
So yes, never all 100% of the world players can participate in every one of the ingress events, i hope yes, but reality is that is IMPOSIBLE.
If current laws in your country don't let you go out, then don't.
Still need @NianticBrian to comment on whether the 400 points is a cap or an example. A simple yes/no equivalent question. If it's an example it needs to be clearly stated.
Hope Niantic relese about medals requirement now. Not on monday. We need to plan for the event.
@MatiasM20 Your argument is flawed.
As rural and villages are already disenfranchised to participate in events with captures, link and fields.
It makes zero sense to say that they cannot participate with using the drones.
Drones are still new, with the MK1. Ball is in Niantic's court to introduce longer travel via links, or from a portal with link amps on them.
Don't worry. The entire event has been cancelled.
Oh dear, I couldn't understand how you could simply blame others to be stupid, when you yourself, as an administrator of the largest 3rd party Ingress channel, went outside for a meet-up and published that with love and pride when Milan was on the edge of a covid breakout https://t.me/IUENG/5227 Even Niantic knows what should be encouraged and what not
