I don't know what that has to do with anything especially with a game entering its 11th year
This badge is on everyone's profile so it's a "default" gameplay one.
Some of those unattainable medals were "default" medals ...
All I'm saying is, they can and have stopped you from achieving a medal.
Like which ones? All I can think is Seer, Recruiter, and Guardian - which were retired for the benefit of the game. Very small window.
3/27 gameplay medals is 11.111.. %
Which IMO isn't insignificant...
Plus one could argue that removing Machina would benefit the game as well.
Absolutely. They may not remove the medal, but they can easily remove machina from the game entirely, they've done it once already right? A few of the default medals are based on features that can be removed or turned off. Scanning, drones, machines, etc
That hurt :-(
Machina is waaaaay to aggressive. I killed a few blockers and ,and only 30 min later it blocked again 🙈. Let it slow down. U litterally have to keep ur intel open all the time 🙈
Did easy +1mil ap with machina, event and boost by walking in the park. Thanks machina
Sad that i have to wait more then 2 weeks until park is red again and i can farm it again.
Id be fine with Machina staying if it reset back to zero on a regular basis.
Or we get somthing in story to remove Machina in 4 month if some team win on Anomaly. Now nothing happend if some team win on Anomaly and it is not fun. Mutch better before. We need lots of update in story and what happend in the scanner again. Ingress are to bad now.
Machina needs to decay much faster if the portal is never attacked.
You really don't want to start that when I agree with your position... it might encourage me not to...
Like it changes anything here
So here are the same topics again like a half year ago. I decided to NOT to try taking back some of the area's i liked to go to, because some red spoofer is blocking the lanes.
Whatever, it just needs to be stopped and i don't care about a part of this storyline. Something that's funny - i also decided to burn down some company diesel to destroy the red portals. Niantic, most sustainable company right?
You burned gas when attacking the enemy before. It's just a bit more whiny at this point.
i dont understand the connection in lore to why machina expands so agressive and whats next after anomalies they will start fielding?
I think we are just not allowed to field anymore. In the past we took the battle against spoofers, now Niantic takes the battle upon us..
At least people stop driving lots of km in their cars for these boring fields. Good for the enviroment. More lokal on foot/bike play!
The machina portals are completely out of control in rural areas in my region, making up literally 100% in almost all towns,
It was fun to easily capture new portals when I visited a new place, now its way more time-consuming.
Also, how is a new player who doesnt live in an area with active players supposed to compete? Imagine being L1 and surrounded by L8 machina portals for miles and miles.
Just make it an opt-in feature.
How about a little modification to the game:
You put four link amps (any type) on a portal, then any links you send out from that portal can go through red links. Not only that, but any red links crossed actually break and are removed from the game board (no change to the red portals at each end).
lol Its lots of driving around to the red portals to destroy them. It just switched from fields to destroying red portals, then cursing because you can't get to some red portals because they are locked in certain places, or now in someone's backyard since the effing incorrect location 9+ years later despite numerous reports and posts about them. Yeah, it was a field, but they build a house there in the past 9 years, so now its no longer middle of a cornfield, it's someone's backyard. Lucky for them, home pokewhatever.
Dude, you haven't a clue. One link maxes portal defense at 70% mitigation since there's 4 SBUL. It's the same as 8000 links into a portal.
and when the portal is 1% HP, you think that matters? I had no problems during Level 8 Week
Hmm, I save my level 4 busters for Machina, they seem to fall over rather easily. Or rather I did. One opposition player eliminated red (about 150 of them) from our city in one night recently.
Yes, I have seen disappearance of all players in Normandy, both enl and res. And as a enl agent I want to fight res and not a dumb ai. I miss my smurfs.
@NianticOfficial has abandonned us. I was ready to pay more for the Core. But not for an unplayable game.
It would take me two, well, a maximum of three days of a single game to remove all the portals from the screenshots. I don't understand your problem. If there are several players, then you can remove all the portals in one day. Is it difficult for you to walk through the streets of the city and go out of the city in order to destroy the red portals? I sincerely don't understand you.
I love the assumption that you think everyone has the time and stock to do so. Reality looks a bit different.
Are all those portals accessible or within burster range? Do you also realise that Machina just comes back after you've been through there and within a few day it will look like that again?
Players don't want to have to fight an entity that can go anywhere, has keys to everything and unlimited inventory. It is not fun.
Yesterday in my city there were 8 links from the machine. It's a lot? Don't think. If I didn't want to hurt my rivals, I would destroy all 8 links in a few hours. But I need to breed red portals throughout the city, drive them into the quarter of the last living smurf, and then, with a clear conscience, collect the medal that is given for the destruction of red portals. In my hometown of 200,000 people, I could clean up in a few evenings just by walking and using public transport.
The red faction is a disaster for an agent who walks one proven route every day. I completely agree with this, but for agents with free time, machine time is not a problem at all.
