Red Portals for Year 10 - Machina - PvE
Wow, Ingress developers have been working hard and did an awesome job!
What do you think of the red faction aka Machina aka PvE aka Player vs Environment?
After the LA Epiphany Dawn anomoly - One red portal dropped into grey clusters around the world... I think clusters that hadn't had much activity in a while. Red portals start with eight half-charged L1 resonators.
But they can grow (L2, L3, etc)... and if they're L2+, they can send a link to other grey portals, and turn them into an L1 red. And the virus spreads.
How do you think it will affect gameplay? Here are some:
- Areas with only one faction will have something to fight
- A new agent can easily **** the L1s - advance their badges and and collect cool gear
- If you take vacation someplace no one plays, you'll have to **** the red before you can get the unique captures
- Perma fields will be easier to bring down
