> players won't face any disadvantages in giving the opposing Faction AP advantages for destroying. All we can say for now is it will be an event with a new twist and these bonus rewards will definitely come in handy!
Maybe ADA and Jarvis will microfield the globe.
That would be really nice, i mean, every other medal in the series (Myriad, Aurora, Avenir, Umbra, Didact) has the name of the character featured in it. It would be nice to see this medal with the name of the corresponding event too.
Will Apex double the increased AP?
as usual, of course 😄
I'm ready to hack them all!!!😎
Thanks you so much, @NianticBrian and everyone!!😘
Although I still miss a proper story arc
Pretty happy for mini events like these.
If it is 2x for destroying links and fields, there should be a set of rewards for building links and fields.
or given a special color during the event,  as a marker of special action on special events.
There will be a new event metric added to your Agent Profile for the duration of the Global Challenge to help you monitor the number of unique Portals you have hacked
@NianticOfficial - For the benefit of stats collectors, can you reveal the name of the new stats field in advance of event?
yes, tell us :)
Unique Portals Hacked? :))
Hopefully when Phase 2 is released, they’ll re-push the badge with the different tiers enabled, and the name corrected.
Sounds like there will be in the form of the next event, happening at the same time as reward output :)
To help players, could you add a visual in the scanner for the unique portals visited during the challenge by the agent or by the drone :) ?
From the post:
If the in bonus week will run as it was posted here, I myself won't microfielding my town. No way I can give free double AP, (and 4x AP since Im sure he will use APEX) to my rivals who doesn't give a damn of making microfield himself and only doing destroyer role.
There is no balance on the reward at all. maybe I will do some starburst and recharging on the bonus week.
But, I appreciate NIA gives us event periodically and I am really looking forward for next many events and medals. Thanks!
It isn't the number people are asking for, it's the marker on the map of either which portals are already hacked for this challenge, or which ones aren't
@RushdieRR This is a great question and thanks for asking. Unfortunately for this event the Layers will still retain your portal interaction activity with no special marker/distinction for events.
@MrsSpectrum sure! its "Unique Event Portals Hacked"
thank you for your answer
@NianticOfficial As it seems that portal network still get potential threats from NEMESIS Optima. If we complete that challenge, will the Kinetic Capsule event open again with silver/gold medal?
same as my previous question,
thank you for asking again, I also want to know.
Recently I started to play Ingress again and just cant stop playing and visiting more new places! Cant wait for the event to give me some more sweet bonuses!!!
"2X AP for Link and Field destroy, (187 → 374AP for Links; 750 → 1500AP for Fields)"
Oh boy... here we go again... The entire playing field will be a mass of gray portals... No incentive to build. Have you guys not learned anything from the past?
this event might just be a flop. 3.5 millions in 3 days is not a small number, here are some past events:
1.7 million deployed resonators (not unique slots) in 10 days
0.64 million glyph hacks (not unique portals) in 3 days
for every glyph hack back then, 5 unique portal hacks need to be made, making the drone almost useless in comparison for this challenge. they might have just added an extra 0 by accident
Good that will likely make it easier for agents to participate in the next event what ever it is.. :)
It's cool to run after the unique ones and without a medal, if you don't have enough imagination for a new one, open the Myriad medal again, and recursion for it.
Why should we give the enemy potential 4x ap for destroy with Apex? Dont make any sense a builder gets not same ap as destroyer..... Niantic loves destroyed playfields as this means whoever takes down fields can deny other faction ap for their own benefits.
With an apex on the ap gain is indeed very high, but that's the same for both factions. Not sure if that will be that much of a problem
Good question anyone has the answer to this?
again thanks very much Niantic to give us eventsssss wohoooooo! Love it
Likely, whatever the next event is, it will involve doing a lot of building for Medal points. You can't build if no-one destroys, so incentivizing people to destroy so you can build again, will help people gain their Medal points faster.
Just create a character and put a bag over their head. Done!
Would be nice if they could give out the Via Lux badge again...
