I'm aware of this event but this event could be optimized if Niantic would also increased the hack output of atleast common MODS.
Not interested without the reduced drone cooldown
The current ability to double deploy 7 and the reduced cooldown time to 90 seconds is great for glyph points. You can solo build a level 6 portal instead of level 5, and that gives you 8 points for glyphing it, instead of 4, and you don't need VRHS to make the wait bearable. That already gives you double the glyph points in about 1/3 the time. Find a cluster of 4 portals close together, mod each with a RHS and RMH, and you'll have up to 384 glyph points in less than 10 minutes.
this isnt drone event, and we cant have reduced cooldowns on drones every event.. how boring is not that...
Neither were most of the other recent events. I don't find it boring. I've been working on unique drone visits, so I enjoy dropping it off in new areas during events.
I use the events to pass through highly movemented zones. I'm almost 5000 and half the city is visited. Once I finish the availables in the current corner, I'm gonna recall and try the nearby areas of downtown and went for it during the next event.
reduced drone cooldown would have been nice but oh well.
it will probably return later isnt the last time we will have reduced cooldowns on drones xd

We're moving up the Start Time of the upcoming Glyph the Planet event to Thurs, 17 JUN 22:00 UTC. The End Time (Fri, 25 JUN 16:00 UTC) will not change, and Agents will have this additional time to utilize these temporary adjustments to the Ingress app and the Portal Network.
It looks the Kinetic distance stays on 8 km. Can somebody double check It please.
Event isn't in effect yet. Just had an agent I know activate his and get 8km distance on it. I would recommend waiting for confirmation of it being live.
Double Glyph AP, double R8, 4km haven't kicked in yet?
Double glyph hack AP and double deploy of R8s are live. Woo!
(I can't comment on kinetic capsule recipe distances, though.)
Just got confirmation on someone successfully getting 4km kcap. But if one was to be cautious it might be smart to wait for an official response but it does seem live now
It seems like a 4-glyph sequence, which ordinarily grants 8 translator points, is granting 4 event glyph hack points. I'm guessing this is as designed, but putting it here for anyone else who is as confused as I was at first. I'm assuming (but haven't verified) that other sequence lengths grant the same points as their length.
Edited to confirm other sequence lengths also give their lengths in points. More surprisingly, missing one in a sequence only deducts 1 point. That is, getting 3 correct on a 4 glyph sequence gives 3 points, not 0.
Event Glyph points count was fixed, but the fix doesn't account for glyphs completed before the fix!
I am still only getting 4 event points for 8 point glyph hacks.
That last bit, about "partial credit," is interesting. 🤔
seems like p7 successful glyph gives 4 event glyph points while p8 gives 5??
This is correct, the event counter should go up 1 point per well done Glyph
I'm getting hungry
I dont recieve double AP for hacking :(
To confirm, are you glyph hacking, and are you getting all of the glyphs right in the sequence? The challenge states:
"2X AP for successful Glyph hacking (including Drone)"
If you are only tap hacking, or not getting all the glyphs in a sequence, that could explain why. I just tested with my drone and can confirm I got 2x AP when I got all the glyphs in a sequence right.
I thought it will started Friday afternoon but as I glyphen today I got double APs!! Yay thank you for the Eventsssssszzzz
started 24hours early in celebration of our new community specialist :)
Why do we only get 5 event portal glyph points for a successful p8 glyph?
The stat counts every glyph you have glyphed right, no matter the sequence length or if you got the others right. For example, on a L8 glyph hack, while you would not get any translator points if you messed one up, you would still get 4 points for the event stat,
Yeah, it makes sense now :) Thanks
PAC told me this today
