[IDEA] Ingress Prime - Extreme mode
1 week or weekend every year there is a limited number of portals that will be available all around the world and all MU that is scored will be counted per team. The team with the most MU wins the challenge.
Badge for winning or losing the challenge.
Limited number of portals
In this challenge every player (minimum level 8) gets 1 vote he/she can give to an existing portal. Only portals with a minimum of 1 vote will be available in the challenge. Other portals will disappear from the game for that week. This will give the map a completely different look and new ways of playing for different regions. Cooperation is (a portal) key!
How will the voting work?
The week before the challenge, players will be able to vote on a portal. This is only possible if they are at the location of that portal. So, if you want to include a portal that is really hard to get to, you will have to put in some effort the week before.
Multiple votes on 1 portal
If a portal gets 1 vote it will be in the challenge, but it is possible to give multiple votes to the same portal.
- 1 vote: portal is available in the challenge
- 4 votes: 2 extra mod slots on the portal
- 8 votes: 4 extra mod slots on the portal
Level 16 players get an extra vote for reaching level 16, which gives them 2 votes.
Recursed players get an extra vote for every recurse. So, hardcore players can get extra votes depending on how hardcore they are.
What will happen at the start of the challenge?
All portals will be set to a neutral state, so all links and fields will be removed from the game.
There are exceptions. A lot of players have guardian portals/links/fields they have in their possession for a long time. If a portal/link/field is up for >300 days, it will not be set to neutral and will stay in the challenge even if it gets no votes.
The guardian badge will come back for a limited time and people who have a guardian at the beginning of the challenge will get this badge.
What do you all think? Remarks?
