In the spirit of this thread;
do you think we will get an event for Christmas? Again, the calendar for December is pretty sparse. Or maybe a New Year one?
They did redacted April Fools event, providing only a date. I would expect the same for Xmas/New years, waiting on Yokohomas result first just like Kureze completion was first.....
Thia a simple yes will do 🤪
Agreed, no “maybe they’ll surprise us”. @NianticThia
We should have a mini badge event for Christmas each year IMO.
There is also an unofficial December event happening
Winter solstice event with a badge that's a flipped version of summer solstice badge
I imagine the Wintergreen badges will be available again 🤷♂️
It seems the unofficial event is only available in Europe.
Jingle bells all the way
I'm not in Europe, but still doing it.
Gives me something to do each day.
Though due to Timezone differences, I missed day 1
It's worldwide. Play in your time zone, all times are your local time. Many from all over are doing it.
For the Ingress team, the year will end with Anomaly in Yokohama on December 10.
And since I don't recall any events being held from Anomaly in December to New Year's Day, even in decentralized form, in the past and to this day, no events will likely be held until First Saturday or Mission Day on January 7 in this year's case.
More importantly, I would like to see the annual schedule for 2023 announced before the Christmas vacation.
i think schedule will come early next year and not before holidays when niantic team goes on vacation
Will there be any christmas or new year medals? I have store credits to waste xD
That used to be somewhat true.
But that's too late for us to even consider planning a trip.
So we want Niantic to announce as soon as possible.
Especially the anomaly.
This has always been said, too, but we like to choose the cheapest airfare possible, and we like to make reservations before the cost of lodging at reputable hotels skyrockets.
Naturally, we want to plan our itinerary with plenty of time to spare, so we want to request leave from the company.
For this reason, I want it announced at least three months in advance.
That's all there is to it.
And after that, we want to take our time searching for a good lunch or dinner place.
Because it would be a bummer if we went to a new place and all we could go to was Dunkin Donuts or McDonald's, and those are the places we usually eat.
I fully agree with what u wrote.
Agreed would like to have all of January mapped out. But as a practical matter I'm not expecting anything big until the end of February.
