SERIOUS over-reaction and punishment for those who can play. Get everyone excited for something new and then change it. Grrrr.
first the majority are upset because niantic tried to make a challenge during covid. now you are upset that the challenge has been changed.
get a grip. if you are able to play, then go out and play. there is still double ap, deploy of 2 8s, deploy of 4 mods. if you are trying to level up for your year badge go for it.
hopefully some time next year we will find our new normal
We've had 9 months of bonus AP extra deploys and easy Sojourner.
The competitive event was what people were excited about. Purposeful play. A point. All we're getting now is the standard celebration.
For the first time EVER I feel Niantic has just listened to us.
I'm shocked and in response I am now going to buy some more CMU just to show appreciation.
Niantic dont need cancel events if they only make drone events when we have covid-19 in the world.
Annoyed at the cancellation of the first part of EOS, but still allow linking and fielding in phase 3
What is wrong with tailoring all 3 phases of the event with your new toys, ie the DroneNet and Kinetic Capsule?
Thank you Niantic.
Challenges like this tempting people to take risks that can cost theirs and many others their life is indeed not a good idea.
Many people would stay safe but there are also others who don't care. And these are the ones that will frustrate many.
so you aren't going to go out for ap? gotcha
Thank you Niantic for listening to your community and prioritizing agent safety over this challenge.
No es justo
So you would rathe rhave something that encourages people to break lockdowns or guidelines or common sense for a game? So what if we HAD the bonuses before? We are getting them back for us to play safe. People who are complaining they don't get to be competitive sound unbelievably selfish to me and in sure to the vast majority of the playerbase
I was going to state they could do something like Innovator or Via Lux Explorer but even an individual competition limits the people who are able to play. This is a situation where there's going to be people from a country that will have FOMO.
Make it a drone hack Challenge
Cancelan la medalla, pero seguro que después podrás comprarla, jajajaja.
@CrimsonGrimoire says "everyone’s been doing just fine", the scientific consensus says around 1.23 million people have died. Hmm, which one should we believe?
"no incentive to play outside" yes, that's the whole point! Going outside is dangerous. Niantic have taken a tough decision, done the right thing, and by doing so have probably saved lives.
😭 I was waiting for the competition of the event and the medal too. 😥😭😭
Please confirm that recursed agents will receive the onyx year 8 medal, just as they did in year 6 and 7. Also, November 17th seems early to start pushing the medal. Hasn't it always been end of November/early December after all the AP bonuses are over?
No es justo, estaba esperando este evento porque lo miraba algo increíble de tener competencia despues de un largo tiempo, igual las actividades en todo el mundo ya se están reactivando, debían minimizar los requisitos para la obtención de la medalla, no me esperaba que lo cancelen este evento 😢
Why would you guys remove the medal? One of the main reasons I wanted to participate in this was to earn my first event medal ever. With all respect, this is honestly a pretty dumb decision.
I feel like there should have been something more like a middle ground here…
Yo creo que el juego lo juegan personas mayores de edad y cada uno es responsable de sus actos si juega debe hacerlo con medidas de seguridad.
How about we shut the game down everyday there’s a place raining in the world? Also, for the sake of our cry baby player base, let’s not keep the server running 24/7, someone’s gotta sleep! They can’t play during their bed time, and people are gonna die if they don’t sleep!
Why don’t you take a minute to reread that or work on your reading comprehension. Or you know, don’t quote things out of context.
This is the right decision at this point.
With so many countries suffering a second wave, this was not the time to run a competitive event that would have inevitably encouraged and incentivised potentially risky behaviour.
Hopefully the event can be run in the future, it looked an interesting idea.
Though i understand the decision, I'm really sorry to hear this ... there's no lockdown here and I recicled like 200+ keys i was recharging to prepare for this event and quite literally stop playing to allow portals in my small city to dacay (there's only one or two players fo the other faction, and they're not very active) and be able to play the event, and all of a sudden, bam! no more event. It's a bit sad for me and for what i read and hear i'm not the only one feeling this way, but I totally get it ... I just hope if some event in the future happen to take place while we small cities are in lockdown and main cities are not, the "adjustmets" fit this same criteria, and the community concerns remain the same ... stay safe you all!
I understand, some countries are in Lockdown but others NOT!
OMG! NIA is totally lost on this topic.
If you would like to remove ok, but not for entire world!
Is totally possible to keep in some countries or cities. Its not to hard to validate it with vanguards.
Okay but what did the Eos medal look like and what will the Year 8 medal look like? Perhaps agents will feel a little better/less bad about losing the Eos medal if the design was as horrible as the Dark XM medal... :P
Gutted it has been cancelled, but I feel this is the correct call, the timing just wasn't right. Thank you for listening to the many concerns of the community, I hope this or a similar event can be scheduled once the world has it's **** together.
Lame, giving in to the fearmongers.
It's actually safer to play now that there is much less traffic on the roads and also less pedestrians to bump into.
