How to help "NIA" help us
I'd really like a "don't bite the hand that feeds" thread. A way to let Niantic know their flagship creation isn't Poke-a-Mongo or whatever unoriginal capital they can gain from branding other people's ideas. Ingress is why we're here, and these guys who made it don't have to work for free. A few suggestions:
2: What is now called "swag" (what used to be called clothes) is probably their biggest fail yet. I'd compare this to the "band rule" of rock 'n' roll. If you play two shows and no one is wearing a shirt at the second one, quit and learn accounting.
3: Skins. Vanity is a best seller (look at literal pictures of butts if you don't understand vanity and instagram). Someone here mentioned a [REDACTED] skin for bittervets. New players will have no idea what the hell that even means very shortly, however vanity thingos have always sold well in multiplayer interworld thingywotsits.
4: All we need is just a little patience.
5: I've run out of patience with whiny "agents" who don't understand Ingress is free to play and just want hand-out for whatever subjective gripe they have with "Osiris" or whatever the hell is going on. Niantic has only continued this game because WE love it. Let's help them help us, and suggest rational ways for the devs to afford their bills.
