US Only again.. because the rest of us don't matter right?
I myself am from Russia, we have the same problem. But I think more circulation will solve it. And then you can always find it in the country. If you do this with a lot of agents, you can save on delivery.
Although there is a pandemic all around the globe, the delivery services still are functioning very well.
so why @NianticBrian only shipping to US? Why limit it that much in these times?
and as mentioned before, why don’t give C.O.R.E.-subscribers an advance on that kit?
and don’t forget the C.O.R.E. Subscribers outside the US. They also like/love physical Swag.
so long, and thanks for all the fish
Great article on the temporary glyphs and glyph sequences used during the event last year
great !!!! europe can't buy from official website but ebay already have it !!!! . thank you niantic
So how do they know where to send the kit? Sorry kinda new at this virtual stuff.
There are two different things announced in the original post. First is the virtual Meetup, during the time specified above, if you glyph hack any portal, your NL-1331 medal count will increase by one, your default avatar will be replaced by the NL-1331 one and we'll get glyphs and glyph sequences inspired by NL-1331.
The second, seperate thing are the NL-1331 Birthday kits. Once they're restocked, you can buy one for $25 on the Niantic Shop online, in which you'll have to enter your address so it can be sent to you.
Will the new van badge appear automatic or do you have to purchase the kit?
Did you read the first post in this thread? I understand English may not be your only language, but the back and forth and confusion almost makes me think your trolling at this point.
Again, there are two different van badges. There is the "NL-1331 Meetup" one which has 5 tiers, just like normal badges. That one you'll get by glyph hacking during the event, as the Bronze tier is awarded at one point already. Then there is the new "NL-1331 Fleet" badge which only has one tier and behaves like character or festive badges. That one you can only get when you buy a kit and redeem the passcode that comes with it.
So have they fixed the problem of only have a few NL packages for sale. Making everyone stalking the store. Or do they have enough to go around?
As posted several times here and elsewhere, there is no date or time posted for the new kit. Stalking the store is your only option and you should have a US address to ship the item to. No idea on numbers, but I’m guessing it will be just as limited.
Definitely would LOVE to have Guardian back since I've currently owned a portal for over 533 days now.. and when that badge was still around I basically had a stalker & MAJOR troll who consistently targetted ANYTHING I do.. and I ended up quitting for a couple years back in the 2016-2017 time.. and now I'm stuck with stupid Gold Guardian, yet basically everyone else in my area on my faction has Onyx. 🙄🙄
FULLY AGREE 💯👌🏼 C.O.R.E. members definitely should be obligated to be reserved a spot for pre-order for things like this.. now 2 of last weeks kit is up on eBay by scalpers, one going for $109 currently and the other in a little above $300 🙄
I hope that y'all don't run out of kits, and also that you nail down WHEN you are going to be releasing this kit for sale.
The sooner they run out the quicker its released to the inapp store, (will laugh if that never happens)...

Dear Niantic you have given me some good times that I will always bring in the 💙 we hope in better times we can return to the physical game life on the pitch, I inform you that I have been collecting pins since I started playing, unfortunately I cannot complete a collection because even the birthday kits have been sold like hot cakes and aime 'us players (core subscribers) At least giving everyone the possibility subscribers or not to buy a kit would have been right for those who play and buy! Seeing crimes of buying and selling on the websites of your kit or other is not fair towards those who spend their money for ingress, and particularly cares about a coveted object, I ask you to re-sell the pins of the 1 kit, if possible and I wish you to carry out merchandising worthy of your company😉
Ok so I'm not trolling. Niantic does stupid stuff. I was asking about the van badge not the NL 1331 +1. I have looked at my store app that comes with Ingress. Everyone was saying it was on sale already. I didn't see anything on the app. Later I saw where it was sold out already. So I'm trying to find out where to buy this thing at. Also is it the same as the NL X that I got in 2019 in Birmingham Alabama. If so only thing I don't have is the ADA. PS I've been playing since 2014 but I don't buy stuff online or in store.
i cannot take a single one for me :-( im really dissapointed...
You will be able to buy it here: https://shop.nianticlabs.com/home
The medal is completely new and looks like this:
Guessing 12 people bought 25 each, and sold out?
Brian Rose of Niantic released a statement today in regards to the packages for sale.
"Additionally, Brian reported that, after distributing all the physical merch still in stock (several waves of packs to be sold), the NL1331 2020 medal will be made available to agents via a Digital Kit in the in-app store".
So if you don't get a package for $25 then it looks like you will probably be paying $20 for each of the items. I guess they will make money somehow. Especially the ones living out of the country since they are not able to buy any packages. I also saw that you can buy up to 25 packages. Really, who needs that many besides the scalpers on eBay.
I would still prefer a physical swag pack.
Looks like it won't happen until next year when the pandemic eases off and we can travel again.
Happy to fork out cash for the digital swag.
Can anyone tell me if I understood this event correctly please (because I'm not a native English speaker)? :😁
All that we have to do to advance the NL-1331 Meetups Medal by one, is to glyph hack ANY portal one time, (from Tuesday, March 30th 4PM UTC to Thursday, April 1st 4PM UTC)?
Meaning that it doesn't matter where I am and that I don't have to register anywhere for this event? 😮
That's right, your understanding is correct and you can glyph hack the portal anywhere you are during the event time (according to your local time)
Thank you so much @RushdieRR !
Ohh, and one more thing, about the new 2021 NL-1331 Birthday Kit (2.0) (that, from my understanding, will soon be on the store inside the game): after we get it, will we also receive this Badge: https://community.ingress.com/en/discussion/comment/135460#Comment_135460 ?
OR, the "having them on the Niantic Shop" part was referring to the https://shop.nianticlabs.com/ store? 😞
And, will the kit in the store be limited for a number of agents or just time-limited?
I think it only NL-1331 2020 Medal will be available in-game Store with CMU.
and for the new 2021 NL-1331 Birthday Kit (2.0) will be available at Niantic stores, There will be a limit in place of 25 packs for each order. and the plan is to add this as a digital Loadout Kit in the future. you can see :
That's right, you must do a hack with Glyph, even if the portal is level 1, it will count and unlock the NL-1331 Meetups medal, or if you already have it unlocked, the +1 counter will go up, you don't need to register anywhere, just open the scanner , find the nearest portal and hack with glyph, hope you have fun and get the medal 🤩
