Also, they need a name. I suggest:
Then append 2021 to them so you can use them again in 2022.
I'll get the unofficial event thread set up later today.
Medals are already sorted, personally I like how it looks actually because I can keep track in a " imaginary timeline" when I got a specific medal (ex: how hard and funny at the same time was get my first Goruck medal), also for me its like an adventure log of my travels. Making a separation by specific topic will ruin this.
Its just an opinion and of course we have a different point of view of how it looks😊.
Wish there is a way to earn those GoRuck medals again in the future. I've done a few events before I knew about Ingress, so a little bummed that chance is gone
I really hope so, personally Stealth Ops + Ingress Anomaly = 1000% pure enjoy and best experience.
I also hope Niantic+Goruck expand these kind of events to another places, so people can be part of them in the future.
Except that they already moved Anomaly medals out of that timeline years ago.
the whole city in 8 level portals in 3, 2, 1....
Scanner: Reduced Kinetic Capsule distance.
Me: Ran a new program yesterday. Face Palm.
I 100% feel the same way. It's like you said, a timeline achievement log that I can look back on. It provides some nostalgia, reminding me of different milestones hit along the way. Different cities, events, countries. It's also fun as you tier up your badges seeing the last bronze, the last silver, the last gold disappear from the bottom of the scanner and you really know just how long it took you to accomplish those things.
I like it how it is.
I just claimed a finished 8km program 1min after the event started. Then started a new one shortly, but my kinetic capsule still showed 8km. It was 1:02 am here. Do your events always start minutes later than the intended time?
Muy bien por este tipo de evento.
Pero veo horrible lo de tener que pagar por unas medallas.
Deberían ser concebidas por diversos logros,no ser solamente coleccionables,yo colecciono biocards,pins,mercha etc pero no medallas digitales.Prefiero conseguirlas por mis propios medios.
Winter... snow... it’s almost like NIA don’t realise the earth has two hemispheres... 🥵☀️🏖🍹
What could be solution? 4 badges? Two with snowflakes and 2 with suns? And what about equatorial regions that are in rainy season right now?
They're aiming at the larger community.
It is a good event for everyone.
1. It is encouraging players to use drone.
2. If you are lucky, you could L 6-7 portals near you.
3. If you are lucky and could buy a medal then buy it. Buy both. This will help Niantic to stay alive. It will help all of us to play Ingress after the disaster.
Medals + boosts, this is great.
Cześć chciałbym zwrócić się do NIA w sprawie medali winter, super ale chcę przypomnieć że to już trzy medale z rzędu za które musimy płacić, czy teraz tak to będzie wyglądać w czasie pandemii moglibyście zastanowić się nad tym, a była szansa na medal w hakowania Dronem w weekend szkoda bo mogło być miło
Translation: Hi, I would like to ask the NIA for winter medals, great, but I want to remind you that these are three medals in a row for which we have to pay, will it look like this now during a pandemic, could you reflect on it, and there was a chance for a medal in Drone hacking a pity at the weekend because it could have been nice
When Niantic attempted to create "Medals for effort" a loud minority of the community here attacked it as being unsympathetic to those 'trapped' in COVID restrictions.
Stuck between a rock and a hard place, they provide medals that people can purchase, rather than setting requirements that people will attack for not being able to meet.
It's a syndrome called "FOMO" or "Fear of missing out".
These paid badges, also help Niantic with cash flow.
As long as the price is kept low, I see no issue with them.
Though, I would prefer there to be a free option to gain CMU, for those players who cannot have a credit card, or on a super strict budget.
There's always Google rewards
Who pay's your bills is between and your pi...Google 😁
This is not working in every country of the world... 👎
