You could have gone with 8,888,888 AP to complete the pattern there.
/sarcasm please for the love of god no
I'm one of your disagrees, and I did get highest tier Exo5 Controller, and highest tier Via Lux Odyssey, and in every other tiered badge. It's not that I am necessarily opposed to having only 8% get gold, I'm opposed to an unknown/variable target. It leads to unhealthy competition.
Some months have a 5th Sunday - next month happens to be one of those rare occasions.
I personally play for the fun of it, and I personally would be very interested in guessing where that medal bar is, play to the last one, and then have fun swearing in chats at those who took the gold, calling them pathetic donaters. Plus by doing so Apex sales would go up and the development team could afford to buy better servers for the game, lol.
Just kidding around a bit. 😁
This. I got over 600 uniques during that event. If I had known the target was 711, I would have gotten there. A lot of the speculation I was seeing at the time was that you'd need at least 1,500.
That's what makes it all the fun! We should have something to poke fun at each other for! 🤣
Are you also opposed to the elite tier of the Hexathlon badge?
Edit- I LOVED your Hex videos on YouTube btw :)
Good question I'm fine with that, because it's a couple of hours of all out battle and then it's done. Nobody is losing sleep or skipping out on work to try to make elite hexathlon. It's really only problematic when the competition spans days.
It's great that you do fun AP or walking events, but there's still a problem that the game doesn't count mileage right. When will "Adventure Sync" be available?
for ingress? never
Given the individual nature of the challenge, why not set the thresholds per Agent, based their typical activity? An extreme challenge for one Agent might be a typical day for another, and a goal that feels unattainable won't provide motivation to play.
Because older players already have 6 key lockers.
wow. So amazing
Great agenda coming up! Time to get back in the field again.
Too bad we won't get access to a 7th locker as long-term supporters but 6 is just fine.
Happy to see a road map/schedule of upcoming events ahead of time. I assume its always been the case when I played on and off years ago, but trying to be a bit more active on the forum to see updates come out.
Good to see events still happening, hopefully new features/content will follow (after COMMS is completely fixed)!
The ideal AP goal for gold should:
Anything over a mil is, IMO, a bad idea particularly due to #3.
I just got a notification that the Key Locker was available. But I go to the store, and nothing there. Suggestions?
A bit of clarification needed, please:
Other than that, I'm super glad that we get to know the events beforehand so we can prepare both inside and outside the game.
If previous experience is a guide, best you buy 5 pack first... or u will still be stuck with 5 total...
when having less then 6 key lockers, can u still buy the onyx after the event?
I doubt it, better u buy it now so u dont miss the chance.
it was the first thing i did with this event 😂
Since this event is ending soon and thus the ability to buy the 6th key locker, how do I get the onyx? I want to trade the non-anniversary locker in and buy the onyx. Does it matter that I can't tell the two red lockers apart? Some say there's a difference but I can't tell. Bad eyesight. Bragging rights are at stake! LOL, help?
We are coming up close on this next one:
August 6th - August 9th: Level 8 Weekend
2X AP on all actions
2X deploy L8 Resonators
Drone cooldown reduced to 8 mins
Each successful Glyph earns 88 AP
Exclusive Level 8 themed Medal added to the Ingress Store
Is it possible to get a separate thread for it with the start and end times, or have I missed one? I can see myself using some APEX
I assume we'll get a special thread for it just like we did for the #FieldArt event, probably on Wednesday.
Makes sense. It would be nice to do a little earlier for Ingress events. But it’s a learning thing for the team too I guess.
There's a thread in the General thread where you can submit to have a locker deleted if you are a C.O.R.E. subscriber; I'm on the train and not caffeinated so hopefully someone can help me help you w a link! 😅
Edit: got it!
Hope the Level 8 themed Medal will be a good-looking one.
Yes it matters if you can't tell the two red lockers apart. When you fill in the form you will need to supply the hex code of the plain red locker to have it deleted. I sure hope I got the right one (I think I did!). For some help in figuring out which one is which, consult the video attached to the following post:
Bump, what are start times on Friday and end times on Monday? These do not seem to be published yet, and we know things often start late and get extended...
