and if, by completing 4 KC, you immediately get the medal 🤩
Completed four, got my medal. Will work on completing more to count towards the future higher tiers
I am absolutely loving this event. I've probably done more kinetic capsules this event than I have outside the event. It's actually given me motivation to go further with my walks (remaining within my town). I've done 14 of the KC programs since Friday, so I'm happy with that progress.
This event has inspired me to slowly ease back into my routine of daily walks after plague and winter and months spent working from home. I've completed seven capsules so far. The 2km recipes make for a nice goal each outing.
I have 3 kinetic capsules completed under events and 4 under health.
Got no medal, but this was the first time I used those capsules and am sure that i started after the challenge has begun, because the first one was a 2 km one...
For the first 2 hours of the event, Niantic didn't count the Capsules. Head to this bug report with your screenshot and comment that one is missing from your event stat. Niantic didn't acknowledge this bug yet, but we can't really do anything besides going on their nerves until they do acknowledge it.
Will our progress from this event carry over to the Tiered medal release whenever it occurred? If i complete 20 capsules will i have 20 towards the tiered medal or will it he reset to 0?
Progress will carry over, see:
No I meant;
It says we need 5 for Bronze
If I did say 10, would the 10 carry over? (so theoretically I could start at silver next challenge date?)
Or if I did 20, would the 20 carry over?
I do not see any numbers on the Bronze badge in my profile
NianticBrian seems to say it will carry over
If you make 4 kinetic capsules you get the bronze medal.
If you do more than 4, those capsules will count towards the following kinetic levels
The previous bronze medals were all like this. The color scheme is a scheme for gold I think.
IF its gonna follow the original plan the gold tier will be yellow/greenish and lucida will be ending on red color at gold tier..
Indeed, same 'bug' overhere. Glad that the old capsules are 2 km now, no big deal in doing 1 extra this way.
What this event is showing me is that the Kinetic Capsule can be fun. The default distance of 8km is way too much to be motivating, but 2km for the "old" recipes is fantastic. It should stay the exception, but what about reducing the default distance to 4km? I think that would be a good compromise for making the kinetic capsule a fun and rewarding feature - a distance I feel could be achievable on a daily walk.
Oh i must have missed this since it wasn't in the original post, thanks for the heads up!
So far competed 17, looking to do more.. Thanks for the event. Love it. All 2kms programs only. Just wanted to keep the capsule running.
Those are good numbers! Congratulations, it is exciting to see how you enjoy the event
They might make paid, limited-use Kcaps available with shorter distance in the future. Think like GO's Super Incubators.
The problem is that Go's incubators have a chance of hatching something unusual, so some players spend a great deal on them. There's nothing unusual in Ingress that would be worth spending money on an incubator to obtain.
I would heartily disagree when I've been running the Kinetic Capsules constantly since it came out. Providing the capsules in parallel would mean more bang for my step.
Once in-person play at farms etc resumes, my stockpile of VR hack mods is just going to evaporate, so I'd love to be able to keep it going faster than demand. Not to mention, as a profit earning element, Niantic is selling the Rare fodder too, so the only limit is walking.
I disagree here. Very rare link amps would be pretty damn cool to get randomly... There was some rumors and interesting teardown talk years ago that showed extremely rare items like attack mods... (Could have been April fool's fodder though) Hell even just very rare attack mods would be interesting.
All the combinations of "Rarity + Item Type" technically can be sent in the game. They just don't however.
e.g. Link Amps are : RARE + LINK_AMP (with attached stats) and VERY_RARE + LINK_AMP (with attached stats) so they could easily make a COMMON + LINK_AMP (with attached really weak stats) if they wanted to.
Not doing so is a game balance choice though.
I am a paying user with a stuck on 0 km capsule - no update - no Reset or help. :( makes me sad. No badge :(
Quick question for clarity: Since the silver and gold tiers are only getting added during the second event will the Kinetic Programs completed now count towards those tiers after they are released or will we start at 0 Kinetic Capsules Completed again once the second event starts and then have to work our way up to the silver and gold tier?
as mentioned @NianticBrian :
"The next Optima Challenge will use the same Medal, and will also be measured by Programs completed. I'm not sure what the exact Silver and Gold tier requirements will be; however, the Programs completed during this event will carry over to Round II. For example, if Silver tier were 10 Programs and you completed 5 Programs during this event, then completing 5 more during the Round II bonus event window will unlock the Silver Medal."
See this :
Yo tengo una duda, hoy 26/03/2021 tengo ya 5 cápsulas hechas, por que si el desafío es hasta fecha 19 y dice que con 4 ya se puede acceder a la medalla no he logrado tener la mía?
Podrías intentar eliminar la caché y reiniciar el juego? A menudo, éste suele ser la causa del por qué no se muestra la medalla en el perfil enseguida, o si esto no ayuda, podría indicar la versión del juego, sistema operativo y modelo de celular que utiliza para jugar?.
This event was very difficult for me. I broke my leg last December. The event itself was held for 4 days with a lot of rest.
Regarding the Optima medal, Silver and Gold tiers will be added to the second Optima Kinetic Challenge event. If you have achieved the Bronze medal during this event, it will not be reset when the Silver and Gold tiers are added.
