If we pay for 1 month do we receive the badge?
Would it then stay if we didn't continue paying?
Currently on iphone but have preordered the Galaxy s21 Ultra. If I subscribe on the apple device, will I have/receive all the same benefits when I log into the Samsung? I don’t mean a duplicate of cmu/loadout received but rather will I be able to collect the monthly cmu on the other device. Will I still be offered rewards when using the other device etc?
I hope the medal remove if we stop pay. It is very easy to see if agents pay or not if Niantic relese the medal remove if we dont pay. I feel more agents pay to hold the medal in profile.
Yes u will get the badge .
More then happy to pay the subscription.
Just would like to know where the money goes to like: Upkeep, development, advertisement (to get new players into the game) etc.
I believe that @ofer2 mentioned that this scenario was one of the issues they had to fix before they could release it. You'll definitely have all the features etc, but you wouldn't have been able to cancel the subscription without going back to the iPhone.
The 2,500 CMU grant does nothing for me to be honest. I rarely frack because there are rarely L8 portals for me to use them at. Nothing else in the store interests me.
The 500 capacity expansion is nice. Does the 500 capacity expansion disappear if I miss a month? If my CC expires and I neglect to update my CC information? Do items disappear from my inventory or would I simply be over capacity until I use those items over 2000?
What exactly is Agent Codename Flair? Do I get to use emojis and or wingdings? Can I upload a sound file that plays on other agent's scanners whenever I attack their portals? That would be pretty sweet to be honest...
I think other amenities like priority access to support, portal nominations being given priority and so on would be good ideas...
The subscription flairs are these little things:
They work like the Recursed flair, they show on resonators, mods etc.
Thank for explaining flair @InvestigateXM. Now that I know that, I would only purchase the monthly subscription if I had the option to turn the flair off. I wouldn't want to somehow be judged or treated differently because of my flair.
The presumption is that your inventory cap would drop, and so you'd be unable to hack until you brought it down. There's no way to pick which items were in the "extra 500" in order to remove them.
Can I buy more than one subscription for the same month?
Additional revenue = more developers = more time to focus on the various things that need improvement.
Could also just be more dividend to share holders. I just want to know what I get in return, and how this will be handled the day I won't be able to play because of Niantic.
What you get in return is:
As a C.O.R.E. subscription member, you will get access to the following benefits:
Don't make this more than it is.
Yes, we've tested that you can join C.O.R.E. from any platform (Google Play or App Store) and the membership will work at your Ingress account level. For example, you can purchase on iOS, and later switch to an Android device, and your subscription will continue to work. It will also continue to automatically renew until you cancel; however, you will still need to manage your subscription through your original platform (for example, the iOS App Store) until you unsubscribe.
You can also cancel your subscription through Apple at any point, which really means that you're canceling the automatic renewal versus ending the subscription early, and then later subscribe again if you'd like to via Google Play in the future.
Right, that's why I am asking - I do not want to presume or assume anything. I want to hear it from Niantic.
Same goes with your "Additional revenue = more developers = more time to focus on the various things that need improvement" comment. Yes, it makes sense that additional revenue could and should be used to increase Ingress development, but that is something we need to hear Niantic state.
If you subscribe, you'll earn the C.O.R.E. medal. If you cancel your subscription, we will not take your C.O.R.E. medal away from you.
I like that idea in general that agents who want and can - now have an option to donate some money to Ingress further developement in a subscription way. But,won't that +500 place be the same imbalancer as itoen-?
Like the medal, we also will not take rewarded Loadout Kit items away from you if you cancel your subscription. For example, if you're at 2,500/2,000 item capacity after your subscription expires, then you will need to come back down below 2,000 items in order to hack Portals. How you choose to do that (for example use items; recycle items; move Portal Keys into Key Lockers; etc.) is up to you.
I feel more pay if Niantic take the medal back. Now i feel lots of agents only pay 1 time to get the medal. Please relese medal remove if we dont pay. Help to see if agents pay for subscription we see the medal in agents profile. If agents dont pay the medal remove. Soon we can know after 1 moth if agents have subscription then the medal dont remove.
@jontebula that sounds a little harsh. It would be great if Agents join C.O.R.E., even if they can only ever afford to do so for one month, we still very much appreciate their support.
No matter what Niantic does, it will never be good enough for you. Subscription is optional as it is. If you don't want, don't get it, but please, for the love of Ingress, stop complaining for once. I, along with many others are excited about it, and eagerly waiting for it's release.
How can agents know if the agents pay for subscription if the medal and C.O.R.E. Agent Codename Flair dont remove if agents cancer subscription? We must know it if the agents have 2500 inventory or not. We cant know when the medals dont remove.
[Insert all the heart emoji here.] I'm really glad to see this come to fruition!
@NianticBrian Instead of taking the medal away, maybe change it if someone stops paying? (Make it go dark or something).
I do see it as a plus for players actively paying to be recognised for continuing contributions. Or will the flair on player name go?
I see your reasoning, but some of us have already thrown a lot of cash at Niantic and we don't get badge for that.
Maybe a badge for "has spent some dosh with us".
Don't get me wrong, the new additions are fantastic news, this post is more in line of suggestion/fine tune than crying.
Well done Niantic!
I'm (partially) joking when I ask this.
Would it be considered cheating if I set up an additional account or two, subscribed them to CORE, and then never performed any actions with them... never touched the map, never touched the inventory, just let them quietly send additional money to Niantic? I've easily spent five figures on this game over the years, much of it in travel, and funneling a little bit of that to Niantic to Niantic seems like the least I could do. Giving Niantic $5, $10, $20/month makes me happy.
The TOS prohibits "Playing with multiple accounts for the same Service", but if the accounts literally never play...
Lol. Same, if you count airfares, charters, accommodation, boat hires, comms gear etc.
I think a lot of people will throw cash at the game, if given incentive.
You could just buy cmu?
Thank you @NianticBrian and team! This subscription seems well balanced between perks and convenience without overpowering.
