When prime came out, a new player had the option to change/pick factions again at level 4. Has this gone away? If so is there any other way to flip at a low level other than deleting their account and creating a new one?
the option should still be there last I knew. The Agent can also request a faction change from Niantic through the Help center through the app. However the latter option will reset the Agent back to Level 1.
I've had two agents in the last week state that when they got to 4 it never offered them the option.
that should still be there at lvl4, i havent heard of they removed this.
Well obviously I don't make new accounts every day 😂 but both people told me they hit 4 and never got the option.
Its done in a few hours to get to level 4 anyway
True but I don't wanna poach people from the other side and tell them they can flip if they really can't. Was looking for clarification. :(
Does niantic not comment on these? I was kind of hoping for an official answer 😕
Changing factions at Level 4 was never a thing!
What did happen before Recursions were added, was that a player had to send a ticket to Support to faction change.
This method is still possible at any level
According to an agent on Reddit, they got this mail when asking support:
"For some of the accounts, once they reach level 3 or 4, they will be prompted to select the Faction again to rethink if they still wish to continue with the same Faction or change it. This prompt will not appear for all the accounts."
If true, that makes me curious as to what the criteria are for showing that prompt. 🤨🤔
That's interesting I thought it was for all agents. Thank you!
Everyone I have recruited in the past year has all had the option, probably at least 4 if not 5.
