Like Phase 2, Phase 3 locations will be associated with recent Agent activity; however, please note there will be a mix of both new and previously-contested Portals.
Does this mean Phase1 and Phase2 area is selected as Phase 3 area even if there is no ornament?
Phase 3 will now also include key ITO EN and SoftBank Portals.
Does this means all ITO EN and Softbank portals are selected as Phase 3 portals even if there is no ornament?
Please clearfy it.
Except that even if nobody from the community interacts with it during the anomaly window, the faction that owns the portal from a capture prior to the event will score Category 1 victories at each measurement.
Are you serious?
Removing a portal inside an airport's security perimeter from an event isn't about removing the ability to play, it's about common sense actions in removing the temptation for people to do stupid things that might get them in trouble and get Niantic in trouble.
Someone hacking a portal while waiting for their flight or doing a mission to help punctuate their Ingress travelogue is far less likely to attract security's attention than someone rushing around to capture and control one important portal during a global event, possibly passing through or close to security barriers in the process.
This is especially important in a city that's already on edge about security issues.
Hello, I am writing to complain about Niantic portal selection criteria.
In Spain, there are a few portals ornamented at Córdoba, Granada, a small town named "Rociana del condado" at Huelva province, but this time nothing in Seville, although we had a pair of portals at phase 2.
Smaller cities like Badajoz and Mérida get a bunch of portals for phase 3 and the capital of Andalucía gets nothing. Very nice.
Do you mean that key ITo EN and SB portals will be also ornamented when included in phase 3?
If all of those portals used on 27 February will be used on 19 March, it will break global balance (it means that there will be nearly 9,000 portals only in japan, which is comparable to ca 10,000 portals all over the world during phase 2. I would like to believe that it will not happen.
A number of the already ornamented portals in Cambridge, UK are behind a Pay-Wall - University Botanical Gardens (which is also closes during the event window) along with a high risk that a number of Portals activated could be within colleges which have limited / no access to members of the public or have limited times in which they are open.
Myself and @Terrance (Resistance POC for X-Fac activities) have agreed that the following areas on the map would need to be considered No Access for the Kureze Phase 3 Event - so would it be possible to amend the portal selections for the Kureze Phase 3 in these areas.
@Terrance are you able to endorse please?
Can confirm -- it would be good to avoid disappointment, particularly for visitors who might not be aware of portal accessibility beforehand, who then can't reach half of the beacons and participate in those battles.
Vestal, NY ornaments have all populated inside a cemetery... I know the name is Vestal Hills Memorial PARK, but it's a cemetery filled with the remains of soldiers. Not an appropriate location for competitive gaming. I don't have a local resistance agent to support a request for change, but I couldn't let it pass without highlighting this situation.
Everything is accessible. Not everything is LEGALLY and SAFELY accessible.
Niantic, PLEASE pay attention to your community contacts.
Most sites, according to community organisers, have more active Kureze portals now, than they have players interested in taking part. Some locations have 3-4 portals for each player. This is going to be a ridiculous event if you don't stop adding more portals. There are already more than the event can support.
yes in my city alone its too many portals then actually players will show up on my team atleast.. so idk most got the badge in phase 2.... huge playbox and tons of ornaments so far... its stressful just lookin at all portals so far.. i think many will be burned out after this last phase and then same formula next upcoming 3 months..
Russia and Belarus have been banned by Niantic. Totally. No more gameplay. Bye-bye streaks.
I think Niantic is punishing the wrong people. It's not the Russian people that attacked Ukraine. It's the Russian government. The same government that suppresses it's own population.
"Agents, if your area hasn't observed DST yet, NIA-deployed beacons will appear from 15:30-18:30 local time.
If you are now on DST, NIA-deployed beacons will appear from 14:30-17:30 local time as previously announced.
If your country or region is still observing daylight saving time (for example, New Zealand until 3 April), please be advised that NIA-deployed Battle Beacons are scheduled for 15:30-18:30 local time.
Regions not observing DST will see Battle Beacons scheduled 14:30-17:30 as previously announced.
We have added a free 0 CMU bundle with 3 Rare Battle Beacons available until Mon, 21 March @ 14:00 UTC and will work to address this in future events.
We've published a spreadsheet of times to hopefully help alleviate confusion with regards to #KurezeEffect this weekend and Daylight Savings: https://bit.ly/3u8CS6w
Again, we apologize for this hiccup and are looking at how we can fix in the future!"
Are you ACTUALLY effing kidding me?? You announce a timezone f*ckup with the event already in progress? I have agents travelling by train with fixed tickets, I have people with commitments, who will now miss an hour of this.
I asked a vanguard about this issue TWO WEEKS AGO - expecting that *yet another* niantic screwup was imminent, and got no response. Oh how prescient that was. If Niantic CAN **** it up, Niantic WILL **** it up.
This isn't even the first time Niantic have screwed up timezones. I just... I have no words.
EDIT: The damned spreadsheet now contradicts your own post. " if your area hasn't observed DST yet, NIA-deployed beacons will appear from 15:30-18:30 local time.". Spreadsheet for UK: 13:30 - 16:30
Just when I though this couldn't get any more Niantic. There's a reason, a REASON people use the word Niantic as a synonym for screwup.
It’s even worse than that. Portals lit up after the event has finished and agents gone home.
Marvellous. Well, we'll have people hanging around for drinks after at at least this won't be too much of a problem. Oi. What a mess.
"Final wave" now EIGHTY THREE MINUTES after the originally scheduled end time. Seriously?
I know no one is perfect, but I've seen no videogame that messes up events like Niantic does. Maybe it's time to take your playerbase a bit more serious instead of trying ways to make them scan portals.
I've seen no videogame that messes up events like Niantic does.
I don't want to get into arguments about who is worse, but I know Blizzard has made some colossal **** ups before, as has the studio behind New World.
Yeah the final wave lit when we were across town celebrating at pub. We got most of them through luck of them being blue but enl flipped one and scored it.
That final lot should not be counted for score. And no we don't have DST here.
Could be worse you could have been playing World of Warcraft. I hear the company that makes that game are worse than Niantic.
Hi, I have a question. The battle beacons I deployed almost 16 beacons and I interacted in those portals but only 8 counted, why?
did u deploy resonators / destroy res/mods atleast ? just hacking and deploy isnt count.

Do I have to register somewhere to win the event medal and proceed to deploy beacons or how does this work
You need to interact with 10 battle beacons, you dont need to apply anywhere
I think one take-away from this series is that having the Battle Category contribute to the score doesn't work well, particularly when we have so many geographically distributed clusters diluting down the number of active agents.
With this scoring system, if you are numerically overwhelmed in your local area then the best thing you can do for your faction is shut down the scanner and leave, which is a *really* unfortunate side-effect that only discourages activity.
Perhaps use the Battle Category for something else? Have a per-cell target for Battle Category points which unlocks a reward or something?
Yes sadly, in phase 2 i saw 10-12 Enl agents gather and play it themselves away a few kilometers from the ornaments just to not give away any points to the other team which i can understand but then the whole "battle" falls flat then ?.. there isnt any battle... so i dont know really... maybe for the other upcoming they will change things a bit..
Tengo el mismo problema y otro agentes más que el contador del evento no sube pese haber despegado más bb aún no logran medalla
