Requiem Anomaly (Saturday, May 9th)

  • Munich, Germany

As we did with the Osiris Sequence finale events of Abaddon Prime, Niantic intends to host a cross-faction after-party with entertainment, refreshments, and exclusive experiences. When registration for the Munich event opens, you will be able to purchase a ticket (price to be determined) for the after-party if you wish to attend. We will be offering free onsite and offsite activation tickets for the Anomaly. A ticket will be required to participate in the Anomaly, have your actions scored, and earn the Anomaly medal. To attend the afterparty you will have to purchase an afterparty ticket. In addition, we will no longer require POCs for Hexathlon and Anomaly events going forward.

    Or stop doing anomalies altogether. c'mon... "Requiem"?

  • So, @NianticBrian still no word on extra anomaly events/sites unrelated to Hexathlons?

  • Los Angeles screwed over again! 🙄

  • @NianticOfficial how soon until we get more details on the events. Will we know the playbox ahead of time in order to plan for hotels? Or since we no longer have pocs, will you be planning hotels for out of town players?

  • Uh. Oh... This is going to be... Interesting...

  • After all the bitching before the Umbra anomalies, and especially the actions of the Dresden POCs, can you really blame them?? Seems like Niantic are trying the less hassle approach here.

    Naah i think it's a jumping out of pan and into fire. The umbra "complaining" was feedback. Feedback is worth the hassle to engage with appropriately

    I am very curious to see what a no Point of Contact Hexathlon event looks like. They must have come up with some way to cut out the need for local agent advice.

    I rather like the idea of Niantic not relying on volunteer support. However, cutting out an official method for communication all together for the site seems like they're asking for trouble.

  • Is this the writing on the tombstone?? I miss ingress. Bring it back please!

  • Bogor, yay

  • The Field Test in Redmond ran like this — individual competition rather than group competition. No POCs, no consultation on playbox other than perhaps initial submission.

    Munich is a more interesting question.

  • Lets get it on
