How would you feel about paid “special research”? Time limited or not?
The “Special Research from NIA/K/Klue/PAC” has been batted around a lot (mostly be me) as a way of getting people to play daily and having something else to do/aim for during play.
I really hope it’s considered and comes in Year 11 at the latest. It makes a lot more sense in the context of Agents working to see what’s wrong with the Portal Network etc.
It helps out in the other game whispers Pᴏᴋéᴍᴏɴ GO and allows for players to have more to do. Sometimes in that game you have a “ticket” to buy to get you extra research which comes with extra (sometimes exclusive, at least for a while) rewards. Typically these can be purchased and then completed whenever.
In the most recent one however, you can spend £1 or £4.49 on two separate special task lists but if you don’t complete them by a certain date then you don’t get the final rewards. Some players of the game feel a bit put out by this (then again, some of those players complain that you have to walk, in a game where exploration is one of the main things so 🤷) and I wondered how Agents would feel about it.
