Add a new "Prime Era Sojourner" Medal to motivate (veteran) agents to use Prime regularly after Redacted is gone.


- Works as the current Sojourner Medal but only hacks after Monday, September 30, 2019, UTC 17:00 are counted.

Bronze: 15 days

Silver: 30 days

Gold: 60 days

Platinum: 180 days

Black: 360 days


- Current Sojourner Medal is not affected


Hopefully also Niantic can comment if this is reasonable and doable so agents can prepare for this.

    Running time portals (Guardian, Sojourner etc) are badly designed medals, because they are a binary result.

    A new badge without history tracking (like Engineer was) is an alternate idea.

    I know a fair number of players who have quit Ingress the day they lost Sojourner, from level 6 to 16.

    Perhaps a better way to do this new loyalty medal would be to give points for consecutive days, one point a day for the first month, two points a day for the second month, three points a day for the third and fourth months, and so on. This way if you miss a day it's a big setback but you're not starting from scratch.


    (This would also be a way to bring back a version of Guardian -- one point a day for fully deployed portals over 40 days old, two points a day over 80 days old, three points a day over 120, etc. Give players a reason to go after those adventurous remote portals and make hard field anchors for their teams, but with no feasible way to cheat and play the badge denial game.)

  • Makes sense @Perringaiden


    A plain and simple "Prime Era Daily Hacks" Medal would be great.


    - Only hacks after Monday, September 30, 2019, UTC 17:00 are counted

    - Hack break (> ~24 hours) does not zero the count

    - Hack after a break resumes the count progress

    - Otherwise technically similar than the current Sojourner


    Perhaps Medal requirements could be doubled as everybody can get this eventually.


    Bronze:  30 days

    Silver:  60 days

    Gold:   120 days

    Platinum: 360 days

    Black:  720 days

    Black with Recursion effect: 1440 days (recursed agents only)

    That's a great idea, because you can progress it, even if you're imperfect in your play. It might take two years to get Platinum, but you can still do it. As a point of note, most of the time Niantic aims to have badges progress to Black in 1-1.5 years for an average active player, so your values are probably pretty close.
