Don't get me wrong, the new silver medal looks good on my profile. But I've been saying for years that they should have tired medals for links and fields destroyed. They already track this. So it would not be hard to add. Instead we get another hack medal. I mean how many more do we actually need. Of course we have to hack to get gear so it's not very hard to get. Why do we need so many hacking medals? Links and fields would bring out more competition. Would definitely bring people to my area. Instead of waiting for stuff to die, there could be competing. I've made close to 70 new portals to add to the many here. Plus I've added more than 10 missions. All in order to try and get more players. Just my thoughts.
