So we have connector, builder, mind controller for badges. Can we have badges for taking down links and fields? It just feels like the game is geared more towards building and fielding but there are plenty of players I know that love the attacking part of the game isn't rewarded the same as building.
I think there should be a Traveller Badge. 1 tick for each unique scoring cell you've played in.
3 for Bronze, 9 for Silver, 25 for Gold, 49 for Platinum, 81 for Onyx. Best part is, Niantic should still have all historic info about each player to award this.
That's is likely but Niantic has shown they don't like to backdate medals.
I wouldn't minds a single "Destroyer" Badge that counted destroyed link and fields together for it's tick, and has some huge requirements.
But that would be a lot of work for 1 badge lol, they should just add 3 new bags. For neutralizing portals, links and fields
Lazy style play is for destroyers, like cargress and busgress. They don't deserves more rewarding badges for just firing XMP.
That's one way to look at it
xm collected badge would be fun.. without xm ucant do anything...
But doesnt the xm collected stat also include power cubes?
There's very few opportunities for introducing new badges without introducing new gameplay mechanics. I personally love my idea for a Traveller Badge because it can show off how much an agent cares about the get to go far outside their home area and comfort zone to play it.
Edit:also I'm very much curious to see myself how many different cells I've played in in my Ingress Wanderings. Don't want to call it Traveller Badge? Call it Wanderer Badge. Not all who wander are lost.
No,no and no.We now have situation that it's faster to ruin (especially with car) than even to plan. Thanks again for that ITOEN - mod(hope it will be removed). With that badge game will become even more hard for fielding. There is an Purifier medal,that's enough IMO.
Thank you for that comment. I can't desagree it.
I think it will be easy to achieve it like Recharger badge, because attacking a L8 portal with XMP L1 so many times XM would be lost quickly and using Lawson Power Cube in that situation that badge will be increased with no hard work.
That's my point lol, it would be the cheesiest badge ever
Cheesy yes, agree...
Remember the days of Guardians?
It could add another facet to the strategy. Would I like it? Probably not, would I go for gold medals? Absolutely.
not every agent has the same gameplay style, ..i'd agree that very high requirements for a destroyer badge would b necessary... I like attacking portals, links and fields... i've driven 45 minutes away right after a large field was created over my town to tear it down...why is my effort less worthy that someone with massive amounts of portal keys linking&fielding in a short span of time? [all from a localized position] ...the game is built on mirrored opposites within narrative AR setting ... i'd like to badge at something I really enjoy [watching the floating dissipating percentages gives me a happy feeling 😋]..plus...hello? that freakin have a recharging badge 🙄 u can get that while sitting on ur couch watching Netflix
