Linking under field event - THANK YOU
"From Friday, April 23rd 4PM UTC to Friday, April 30th 4PM UTC, expect the unexpected — Linking and Fielding under Fields!"
SUPER excited to see this in code base... THANK YOU.
On the downside, it's going to happen while I'm going through finals with school. RIP.
My first concern is that portal link distance doens't seem to be limited while under field. That's one balancing feature I was hoping for in this type of change. I suppose for an event it doesn't matter as much. Don't let that overshadow my excitement for being able to play under fields though. :)
So, my recommended control to this sort of event/functionality:
Create a new datapoint for every portal. Measure the average link length for the closest XXX amount of portals and then make sure say.... the closest top XX portals can be reached by the weakened link distance. This will require some tinkering, but the idea is to make the effects not favor urban or rural play.
