@NianticBrian Thanks to the whole team, even though it is small in your words, you are trying. Today is a great day for news updates. Brian, a long time ago, from the first rumors about a subscription, you gave us a survey, $ 5,7,12, will there be or are there any other subscription options in the future? Thanks again 🤗
If we make it to 10 years of continuous subscription, will you send out a free gift?
The bar has been set, by other games 😂
He actually meant that it would be better if that badge were ranked to grab the money of the onyx hunters like him. He probably don't want a orange one in the profile, so help him get another black 😉
I’m assuming the flair on your agent name will come and go with a current subscription. Niantic has made it clear in the past and in this very thread that they’re not able to remove badges. I’d assume that means changing them as well. It will be easy to see if someone has ever subscribed and if they’re a current subscriber...
The medal stays as recognition that you subscribed, but the flair will go away when your subscription expires (if you choose to cancel it). So yes, you will be able to tell if someone has an active subscription or not.
And lastly.... why does this matter to you what someone else chooses to do with their money?
I find that the store is overpriced. The doubling of the price of items in the store is the opposite what a developer does when your trying to keep an active player base and keep what revenue your mostly free to play game has. I pretty much stopped buying in store the moment they devalued CMU by 50% I have bought 4 key lockers, the two 2020 event badges for 2500CMU, a few frackers. I have spent money on this game as well as in other niantic properties. I don't think niantic is offering fair value compared to their other properties. I would rather spend my money in the other games when it is 2x more expensive to purchase the exact same bundle in ingress for a similar feature. Not only that why is ingress currency 2x more than Pogo when it was not like this originally? Doubling the prices does not encourage adoption.

As someone that really doesn't have the means to buy into subscriptions, I feel slightly disappointed. Like, the cost isn't bad for the benefits it provides, and it's not so overpowered that who choose not to buy it are severely crippled. But it would be nice if the store included an option to purchase a predetermined amount of "subscription" time on a one time basis. Would make it a lot simpler for people like myself to consider contributing on occasion without having to deal with canceling anything.
Also, there really needs to be some ways to expand inventory at least a bit more without the subscription. We have key lockers already, arguably the best single time purchase in the store. Why not implement other types of lockers as well? I'd love being able to keep mostly full quantum capsules in lockers to keep duping items. I know I'd buy that if it were added as a one time purchase. Or just let everyone buy more key locker(s), that'd be cool too. Just something to give the store some more useful options that don't have to be payed for over and over would really help.
This is an appstore/playstore limitation, not Niantic.
And no, keeping capsules inside capsules? It's not a Bag of Holding, you know ;P.
Please tell us if C.O.R.E. Agent Codename Flair remove if we cancel subscription?
I really love it! Hope we can start subscribe soon!
yes flair will get removed and badge stays so easy tell if someone is not an current subscriber even if has badge since old.
I love Niantic do it if agents cancel subscription and we easy see and know when agents pay or cancel subscription. 👍🏻💙
I think we should have the ability to hide both flair and badge from other players in the game, just like we can hide our stats.
Why? What difference that would make?
Also curious to know why you so desperately want to know if another player has an active subscription? How will that affect your life?
It creates two categories of players. Do we need one more excuse to discriminate players? If it can be hidden, it's your choice. But no-one can infer if you are committed to the game or not.
The C.O.R.E. codename flair is only active if you're an active subscriber, and there isn't currently a way to hide or disable the flair.
"Canceling a subscription" is a bit of a misnomer. What Google and Apple really allow is cancelling auto-renewal. When you pay $4.99, you get all of the rewards upfront. If you were to cancel the auto-renewal, you keep your subscription rewards for the duration of that month. For example, it doesn't give you a partial refund or stop your rewards mid-month on the day that you cancel; you've already paid for your full month of rewards.
Some more background on why we're launching an optional subscription model versus the one-time purchases is because we're trying to work towards sustainable, recurring revenue. It would be healthier for Ingress to have lots of Agents joining C.O.R.E. than it would to have a relative few buying even more items from the Store, so we're trying to balance the subscription in such a way that it's more attractive to more people. Additionally, another unique thing about subscriptions is that after one year, Google and Apple charge reduced platform fees on each renewal.
I think Niantic can tweak up reward sometimes if we get free items sometimes in store we get more CMU and 1 extra C.O.R.E loadout kit on special days,events and holidays.
Interesting that Google and Apple reduce platform fees after a year. Seems like even more of a win-win for your team and us agents!!!
Seeing that there are reduced fees for continuous subscriptions, wouldn't it make sense to have a tiered subscription medal?
Love the idea. Very nice and fun if we can get onyx if we pay in 2 yers same on C.O.R.E. Agent Codename Flair we get onyx or sometimes new to see we get the most high in subscription.
As it is we have hardcore players that the subscription will be used by. Can we make the game harder for subscribers in the process? You want to pay in , get more inventory? should have to use it hard.
I like to suggest that it shouldn't be the current CORE badge, but a new one, since the current one is just to tell that you joined. The new one could be base on the subscription stat, and each 12 months, a new rank (total give years to onyx, of just like the FS badge, that is 3 years).
No. Just no. It doesn't make any sense.
Love the idea to get onyx on C.O.R.E medal.
We can get somthing extra for upgrade medal. Say 3000 CMU and on onyx we get more. They can gus the best loadout kit if we have onyx.
Your prize is the onyx. Stop asking for everything free.
Not free we must pay for the subscription. I only like see steps if we level up the medal we get litle more cmu and better C.O.R.E loadout kit if we get onyx we can get new step with litte more CMU but now 2 loadout kit and litle more inventory say 800. I think it is good balance and more nice to stay on pay to get onyx and 800 inventory.
And maybe a couple avatars too....
You let me see my portal keys and counts on the intel map and re-organize my inventory and you have a perma subscription until I die playing.
But now we can say we get avatars for free when Niantic relese avatars very slow and we kan buy new avatars every 2 month if avatars cost are 5000 CMU. But nice to get unique avatars we only can get if we pay for subscription. Hope Niantic can start with the new C.O.R.E avatar.
