Oh yay, Lunar New Year! Niantic... just wondering why the choice of emphasising four L5/L6 resonators, and bonuses for levels 4 through 6 XMP? Unsure if you are aware of this but there are certain superstitions around the number four that might be relevant for this event.
Lunar badge to buy?
Yess, give more events ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ
Is that the February event mentioned for the monthly cadence below or can we be excited about another event later this month?
Happy Lunar New Year to all! Always thankful for more cubes and recharging. I find that recharging is like showing your love and togetherness in a time that we're all staying socially distanced.
Wow, that one came out of nowhere! I was expecting just at end of the month. I nice to see some "randomness".
The attacking bonus on the xmp will be really helpful!
I think this could be similar to the dronenet weekend event in January, so we could expect a proper February event (that's what I hope).
Thank you Niantic for the 100 AP recharge bonus, it is what I appreciate the most.
Happy Lunar Year to those who celebrate it!! 🎉🎊
We should have some fireworks bundle for this event.😄
Can someone explain to me why deploying 4x L5 or L6 resonators would be helpful? Not trolling, I genuinely don’t understand.
edit: a disagree for asking a fair question. Niceeee 🤦🏼♂️🤦🏼♂️
We have and it's free.
Nope. maybe in the next.
Well... Another event or mini-event What you want to call it... No competition medals, nothing new. Happy Lunar New Year and hopefully this will serve to change the focus
I would like to buy more fireworks 😁
Ah yes.... same opinion. why 4 ? Anyway, enjoy the moment.....
Hopefully, they will release lunar badge for us to buy 😊
@NianticBrian Chinese have superstitions regarding the number 4.
Please adjust the event to L5 xmp Instead of L4 xmps
Maybe the bonus is from lv4 to 6 because you can still get lv4 xmp through a lv6 portal, which is what your get alone from deploy 87766665, and if you don't have r8 or r7, you will make lv5 portals, which will surely give you a lot of lv4 xmp.
Both xmp 5 and 6 will stronger than a lv79 and the lv4 will be a close call.
This is what people have wanted, we can’t do the usual big scale events, but something little and often that gives you another reason to pick up your scanner. Sounds great.
Yes 4 is the number of the gone
so not a good choice for an event
Pongan 1 medalla de año nuevo lunar yo la compraría seria fantastico
4 is not a lucky number in Chinese. In fact 4 is avoided at all costs in Chinese because the number 4 sounds like the word for **** in Chinese. Number 8 however in Chinese is pronounced bā. Bā sounds very similar to the word “to prosper” 發 fā. That's why 8 is luckiest number of all in China. So next year make it all about the number 8 and try to avoid the number 4 at all costs. Not that hard considering the levels in Ingress.
Love the event thou! Happy Lunar Festival!
Finally!!!😁 It's about time!!!
And now, Chinese New Year celebration, as the year of Ox 🐂, is finally arrived, and along with Valentine's day ❤️ and President's day Celebration 🇺🇲!!!
Cause I'm going to enjoy this!!! 4 is one of my lucky numbers!! And so, it began with Chinese New Year, Valentine's day and President's day weekend, which is all Holidays will come together, for the first time in Ingress history!!
First come, first served!! And that's why I saw a vision of the future about a sneak peek of the updates and the upcoming events of "Ingress: Prime" and beta version of "Ingress Prime" on Android and iOS!!
Good Luck, fellow warriors and animal spirit!!😘 And remember, The Masters, Apprentice and the Warriors never quits!!! Find the true love's **** and become the new president of the United States, like Joe Biden!!!
@NianticAustin, everyone, thank you, for the news information!!😘
Happy Chinese New Year, Valentine's day and President's day from Ingress Prime!!!
Happy Chinese New Year!
What a beautiful banner. Must share for globalxfac Mission art. 😊
I thought the mission approval was not working...
To make a complete (8 resonators) red portal during the "red event" 😉
I know, lvl 6 resonators are more of a pink colored shade of red but the above seems (to me) the reason why....
That should have been fixed long ago. I've heard of Missions being approved within a few days again.
This art is my work.
If you want to create this banner, you can use this.
Wow! 2X more cubes! That’s awesome 😍
But four 6 and 5 makes a lv5 portal, and lv5 itens are the true red ones.
Ahhhhhh, that makes sense, duh! Thanks for sharing 🤙🏻🤙🏻
