But anyway..... Will there be any awards for the Illuminated this time? Any exclusive medals? Exclusive items? exclusive hacks? Increase in item drops?
Something to reward the winning faction?
@NianticBrian @NianticThia @NianticOfficial Is there any plan to reward the faction that won the last anomaly? Maybe an exclusive medal?
no they are changing the rules with a global challenge (lol) so res got a 1.3x bonus
Typically when Enlightened push for a reward, we end up getting negged.
"Yay the Enlightened won, there are no more ADAs!"
"Yay the Resistance won, here's a permanent badge for your profile."
"Yay the Enlightened won, XM will not spawn any more."
It makes you not want to ask for a "reward" any more.
I agree that a medal/bonus/malus for the winning/losing faction will make more agents want to move. For Osiris it was announced. I would be happy to see the same announcement for 2024. I would also add removing the recharge that gives the medal, or giving a different one for site agents and support.
Osiris was annouced : https://storage.googleapis.com/ingress-internal-event-data/abaddon-prime/ING_Abaddon-Rules.pdf
