find a place with lot of l8 portals. put your drone there. enjoy
I’d rather have the 90 second cooldown back, and farm items. :-)
I’m glad key duplication is no longer going to be a thing. This way, people need to farm keys at the portal, which means the portals on military bases and remote islands are going to be rare, as they should be.
only downside is it will take a long time for all these duplicated keys that are already in inventories to be used up.
I feel like this may come in the task based system to encourage Agents to partake.
Until the opponents blow up those portals. Tired of doing that cycle like a hamster. I decide how to gather my resources from now on. Unlike other agents who have accounts from both sides. How come Niantic lets them get away and seems to indulge in punishing their legitimate players?
Go out and play? Seriously, how many people walk out there in this arctic weather? Some resourceful agents out there found a way to bypass the actual walking and craft their KCs quickly. Thank you so much for promoting couch potatoes out there!
there are no easy way to counter that gadget.
But you can rejoice.
Without quantum capsules people will run out of keys to those portals in Russia and Belarus, which you all so hate.
Or an air conditioning vent, a sling, and a plug.
I would clearly disagree with Ingress giving players their own currency.
One of the reasons why multi-accounts have become the majority in Pokémon GO is because of the system of getting 50 Pokécoins in Pokémon Gyms.
The ugly battles for a mere 50 Pokécoins in Pokémon Gyms is the main reason why good Pokémon players are leaving Pokémon GO.
We should not bring such a bad system to Ingress.
Maybe you could earn it by walking instead like in Pikmin? Perhaps a Kinetic to generate some CMU? Not sure if that’s a good idea though with how folks cheat with the phone swayers
It would be nice to have some way of earning a small amount of CMU. I don’t see the point in more than one account in this, or Pokémon GO.
I have some gyms I can leave a Pokémon in for weeks until it is kicked out and maybe the same day, a Pokémon gets kicked out that’s been in for ten hours. So I only get the 50 coins. Oh well, I’ll get some more another day.
When you factor in the time opportunity cost and spending fuel to leave a Pokemon in a gym for 50 measly Poke coins. Rather use the time opportunity cost and other stuff for something more productive like selling stuff online or pursuing a higher education.
Many of us enjoy exploring with our drone, bumping the Unique Portals Drone Visited stat. I hope Niantic has a better plan than taking away Qcaps AND taking away exploring by drone. (I have 10707 Unique Portals Drone Visited.)
drone exploring ? you don't explore anything it's like going on intell ?
I agree, we should be aloud to keep the Qcap. I have a disabled child and not many players in the area. These capsules have been keeping are gear up. This helps us to keep active on our walks through town which is a major incentive to keep physically moving outside. 🙏🙏🙏
The fact that many players do not want to partake in mitigation measures against cheating, to me is no different than players allowing auto-rockering cheats.
There is a very simple and easy to implement mitigation measure that will work across games.
Disagree, to me, then it is no better than allowing active cheating.
A simple solution is to remove the key duplication from the QCs, but it's a win situation for Niantic to retire the QCs so they can make more money from the items sold in the store. It's pointless to argue anyway about this dying game. It's all written on the wall...
You completely missed addressing my counter argument
It doesn't really matter. No matter how much Niantic tries to resuscitate its dying games through different measures (i.e. life support, etc) ; it's still going to be extinct in just a matter of time. No point arguing what is inevitable anyway.
Yep unless they bring something back to get gear without going to level 8 portals I am done when I run out of gear. I don't care about key duplication you can keep that. Bring back the quantum capsules.
They have done just that, using Kinetics to produce xmps, resonators and more.
These new recipes came out just a few days ago
I don't HATE them, just think that whilst literally nobody can access them, not even military, they should not be in the game.
@Grogyan, it doesn't make sense to utilize Level 8 XMPs only to create Level 7 XMPs. Whoever created that program must be smoking something else.
