Recently there’s been a new feature announced in Pokémon GO, where scanning a PokéStop/Gym will “boost” them.
Would you want Portals that have more scans to offer something like this? Or something else as a boost for lots of scans?
The equivalent would be more items on hack. I'm recycling stuff as it is.
It would be better to do 2 points for 1 scan on scout for awhile would be fairly easy like they did for recon. Ideally, being able to reclaim scout controller after 30 days even if no one else scanned it.
No. Why Ingress players scan portals at all is beyond me.
The scan data is something I hope is never implemented in Ingress, or, if it is, can be completely disabled.
Games already laggy.
Please stop posting every improvement that Go is getting on there - it's not always going to be 1:1 across the games.
That’s true. Just trying to see agents views on it, and encourage some discussions.
I'd like it better if scout controller slowed down decay or boosted mu.
How about, if you're Scout controller of a portal, you can deploy an extra L8 resonator on it? But if someone takes controller, your extra L8 will disappear? And/or same deal with a mod?
Or how about, if a portal is owned by your enemy faction, but you are scout controller, it falls faster to your weapons?
Or maybe your drone can see (and travel to) farther portals if they're controlled by your faction!
I hope not let it stay in pogo.
If scans will give extra gear this WILL be used as a "free-endless-fracker" alternative,so i vote against.
Oh please stop trying to include everything from other niantic games into ingress...
I'd be all for that scanning a portal gave you some sort of small, one-time bonus, be it a tiny item pack, a guaranteed key or reduced cooldown for a drone landing on it, but boosting the overall hack output would be a bad idea imo, especially if not everyone can scan due to their phone not being compatible.
Scans should be rewarded with CMU. You can't scan and play at the same time, so scanning takes time from playing.
I do think that portal submittions should also be awarded with CMU, but at least portal subs can create extra spots to play, which is extra gameplay and can be seen as an investment, but scans don't.
receiving a key for each scan could be a nice incentive.
-scan with a key
-scan without a key
You think so @Khatre ? Depending on the portal, I've done 50+ scans on a single portal, in a single go...
Niantic paying us for the work we've done to build up their database of GPS coordinates, pictures, and now 3D data? That's too radical of an idea. Slow down.
Those are some good ideas. Would love to get some bonuses for scanning portals.
I wouldn't consider getting bits of CMU as a payment, who is the one going fast here? :D
i usually never scan a portal i already have had as controller.
so the more i did the less i will every day as i won't scan any nearby anymore
I guess I’m posing an argument for how something like that could be abused. There are plenty of people here who have complained about quantum caps being able to produce near endless supplies of keys, now one can do it even quicker… Can you see Amy problems with someone gaining 50+ keys after only a single visit to a portal?
