Let the Enlightened Win Epiphany Dawn
There is also an unknown signal or echo that we are monitoring, but have not been able to conclusively identify. We ask for Agents’ help at the Epiphany Dawn: Los Angeles Anomaly to be on the lookout for any unusual sightings in the Ingress Scanner.
It is now clear that the 2022 XM Anomaly Series medals – Kureze Effect; Kythera; Superposition; Epiphany Dawn – represent a Power Cube collapsing in on itself. A collapsed (or exploded?) Power Cube at the Niantic Project is thought to have been the catalyst for the Ingress Scanner leaking to the public 10 years ago.
If the Enlightened capture the Epiphany Dawn Anomaly Series, then together we will open K’s Power Cube and learn who or what the Shapers really are.
If the Resistance capture the Epiphany Dawn Anomaly series, then we close K’s Power Cube, and they keep this knowledge to themselves forever.
Like Pandora’s box, Agents, this decision is yours to make. Good luck.
The sum of this, let the Frogs win.
If this is what it takes to get actual story again, I'm OK with this.
Haha - by choosing USA & Japan they basically guaranteed it. Though some Japan scores have been closer recently.
It's just discouraging Resistance to play.
Considering all things or drama happened this week... rewarding a specific winning faction by not rewarding at all sounds even more weird than not releasing the rules until 10 days before the campaign, and more weird the fact that specific Fevgame volunteer and friends dropped IFS Artwork winner.with proofless cancel culture reasons for the sake of their own fan channel.
Chaos everywhere. And players have no way of making those things better by telling Niantic what they think is wrong. As I suppose high-level Niantic SVPs, VPs, do not care about Ingress Prime project. The game is running in an automatic way.
Might also be that they have 2 stories planned based on who wins. It woukd seem extremely unfair to have it so that one team would feel obliged to lose to get the story going. Admittedly though, they have picked a cell that enlightened will always win, Glasgow.
ofc enl will win lol.
because Germany/Europe for superposition was not a huge res advantage 🤣
Let's look healthy. We have an excellent opportunity to find out the solution to the riddle that has tormented us for all these 10 years. The Resistance will finally learn from the hands of the NIA, and not from the hands of the Nemesis, what the Shapers are. The Nemesis had its own interests, which are still not clear to us, and the NIA has always been for protecting the interests of the earth. So most likely the shapers are no longer a threat to us and yes, I heard information that they will soon be removed even from agent training. So let's finally find out what it was, and for what you all fought for all these 10 years.
Then we got a chance to get at least some portion of the plot from lazy niantics. Do not deprive agents of both factions who love the story, the opportunity to get a portion of positive emotions.
I know how strong the structure of the resistance network is. A few regional orders are enough to make everything go like clockwork.
Although I suspect that some of you will specifically want to do meanness to our faction (some of ours would do the same), but let's close the issue of exogenous creatures in general and shapers in particular once and for all. We all see that this concept has not taken root here on the forum, or even there in the community, so it's time to move forward. We are enlightened to seek new goals for existence and replace Roland Jarvis, and you have new goals to resist us.
I am not asking you to give up, I am asking you to complete this stage of the struggle with dignity and nobleness. You've already won the tessellation, and the exogenous beings no longer threaten us. So show your best qualities here and let us all finish the chapter of the battle for or against the shapers, which lasted more than 10 years.
By the way, yes, I agree with this completely. Why not talk about who the N`zeer are in case the resistance wins??? Is it really difficult for Brian or any designer to come up with a couple of lines of text or draw a collage in half an hour, similar to those we saw in the days of tessellation?
To be honest, these kind of comments or suggestions are insulting the game itself and the RES players who are going to attend the anomaly or live around these areas.
If you want to blame something, blame the poor writing after the tesseration ended. Opening the catbox of the exos was a bold move and since then, the plot was going down hill. Do not engange in such simple and coward ideas of "let the ENL have an easy win", because that would be underestimating your enemy. Do you think it was that easy for you to win Superposition? It was almost 50-50 and we lost by a narrow margin.
Maybe these comments are hidding something more? In any case, rather than giving up without glory, do your best and help your faction.
well europe was always res like asia is enl fortress all years, same with usa so no surprise there..
Did our words ever reach Niantic? Do you think that someone reads us here and draws conclusions based on what they read? I'm more than sure they'll be happy if the resistance wins and they don't have to take the rap for the poorly crafted explanation of the shapers. And yes, I want them to finally do something for enlightenment, because we have no point in fighting since the end of tessellation. The resistance has a scanner that speaks with the voice of ADA, and more or less normal dialogues from level 8 portals, but what do we have? We now hear Roland Jarvis' humiliated wailing and wailing from every captured portal! And nothing else! We have no goal, we have no reason to fight. Do we just have to play for the sake of the phenomenon of play? Do you understand how stupid this is?
And how do agents of resistance live? After tessellation, they won, fulfilled their mission and that's it, there is no more threat, exogenous creatures will no longer appear. So why should they play? What is the difference between them and us? I knew many players who left after the tessellation event ended, because there was no more plot, they (as well as I) wrote to all possible instances, so that only Niantic could hear them. But there was no answer.
So it's better to end it here and now. Either both factions coordinate a boycott without participating in the anomaly, which will show the company the strength of the players, or resistance will reveal the bitter truth about the plot. Do you know what bitterness is? The fact that the plot has reached a dead end, and for good it should have been stopped with the victory of the resistance in tessellation. Or even earlier, before Roland betrayed his faction.
Something nice happening if we win? Are you feeling quite alright there, Niantic lore writer? Usually you give RES the good stuff for winning and ENL get shafted.
The final demise of Roland Jarvis 😂😂
(sorry on mobile phone I clicked twice)
I think that Niantic will set everything up so that they don't have to explain anything about the shapers. It is precisely for this reason that a resonance with the victory of enlightenment is needed in order to get at least a gram of information, I'm not talking about a full-fledged continuation of the plot.
Unfair rule that is supposed to be incentive but eventually turned to be discouraging RES because RES would be rewarded for NO reward, or even some sort of penalty, plus unfair comments that try to prevent RES players from saying anything by classifying common and valid complaints into "insulting". The ecosystem of this game is truly amazing.
Sounds like you would not complain when the boss of your company come to your desk and tell you that:
"Since I have already provided previous opportunities for you to gain working experience here, how could you ask for salary?"
To be fair, ENL wins a series and nothing happens, RES wins a series and they get an additional medal, glyph sequence and their color XM for a period of time ;)
I know, we won the aliexpress battle beacon anomalies but whatever ;P
Welcome to the ENL side of the life, where rewards are punishments. Let me tell you what's inside the box is known already. The Shapers eat human thoughts nourished by XM. Bringing the Shapers back into the game would bring us new technology AT A COST and bring the RES a new purpose of fight.
In addition, do you expect we would follow Jarvis even if what've been told it's true? Don't make me laugh. This "win" is already a poisoned gift. Don't you see that already?
This is not true because regarding that medal, if ENL actually won that series of XMAs, it would be ENL that got the medal.
ENL did not get the medal not because Niantic defined rules that they 100% won't get it. It's because ENL LOST the battle.
I see it as a common knowledge and that piece of history is not accurate to be used as analogy or comparison here, thanks!
Did I say it wasn't? LA and Europe would be fairer.
Also, Res have been punished for wins as well in the past.
Aaaaa!!! Don't get close to him!!! Bitten by a smurf, he's mutating into a resistance agent🧞♂️!!! He even talks like them!!!)))
No, it's what we've been told during tesseration, did they lie to you?
Does anyone remember what Enl got for winning Myriad and Umbra?
I don’t. What cool stuff did we get?
Nothing. That's the joke.
The ENL were supposed to get <insert shiny> that would help them in the Requiem anomaly, but it never happened due to COVID.
In the immediate moment, the writing is easy enough to fix:
I suspected so, but I couldn’t remember
This sounds interesting for option 2.
How would you propose agents vote on it?
Niantic can announce the poll through its usual channels. One way or another, it'll make its way to the Agents who care.
The polling mechanism itself might have to be a new thing, because it'd need to make sure that each Agent votes at most once, and that only Agents of the winning faction have their votes counted. The Intel Map shows that they already have the log in mechanism for this, so they'd have to put together website with a form and tie it to a database that tracks the votes. Nothing difficult, but yes, it would require development resources.
lol it was because Res had a better strategy than ENL did or executed it better. I'd say it was because of the buses, but I didn't get to ride a bus that day, despite being Res, so no, it wasn't because of the buses. Was it because ENL got some of their media Sniped? Maybe? Probably not. Was it because [Redacted]? Maybe?
