Niantic - how to make money from Anomalies
OK so - from the fiasco of last anomaly series, I hope Niantic has learned that charging for anomalies themselves will never work.
What you CAN do is the following
An anomaly capsule.
Anyone registered for an anomaly can buy an anomaly capsule. It holds up to 2,000 items at zero weight. It is buyable from say, 2 weeks before the anomaly.
Before the anomaly, you can ONLY load kit into it. Once kit is in there, you can't have it back.
After the anomaly is over, you can ONLY unload kit from it. You can't re-load kit.
A week after the anomaly, the capsule vanishes, taking with it any kit you haven't unloaded.
Judging by the difficulty so many people have finding people to take their non-anomaly kit before an event, this could help a lot of people, and I suspect a good percentage of anomaly-goers would take advantage of it if it was priced right.
