If I understand it correctly, in short it says:
"Because you were with us for so many years and already received the Anniversary gift locker, we won't let you use your (so appreciated by us) CORE subscription to buy what other CORE subscribers can buy."
"Instead we offer you an unnecessarily complicated and risky way to PAY for changing the color of one of your lockers".
I filled in the wrong capsule name.. i used an 0 instead of zero,..
I'm not personally going to take advantage of this but I think it's nice you are doing it and sorry about all the entitled people mad they aren't getting a 7th key locker.
It would be nice if you answered all of Dittosaur's questions and not just the last one.
Any differences between the two red capsules are negligible. What was shown for the anniversary locker is NOT what was delivered.
Just to clarify, do you already need to be a C.O.R.E subscriber to take advantage of this or can you become a C.O.R.E. subscriber now and use this offer?
If you stop being a C.O.R.E. subscriber will this locker disappear?
I don't understand why anyone would delete a already bought or free key capsule just to buy it again. Seems like bad business to me.
This is completely optional. You might want to look up the definition of theft again.
I can probably guess the reason why the keylockers are being implemented this way but I'm just going to ping @ofer2 as I imagine there's a better answer from Niantic on this when it comes to offering a total of 6 keylockers.
yo stop bothering the engineers for random queries, the fact that they sometimes post on the forums does not make them the go-to person for every little thing you want to know..
I'd still like to have a souvenir key locker, as those keys will never get used.
Still don't know why this is even happening, when it is controlled entirely by the server controlled to change all old red capsules to black ones?
Seems to be a mess of different scenarios
And not keen on accidentally losing my 5yr anniversary key locker
Haha! Please make all keylocker the same color, just to troll everyone and end this for once.
Every capsule and Quantum capsule have the same color, make all keylocker the same too!
You guys (agents) are overcomplicating things so much! 4Godsake...
Niantic for once understood their userbase and decide to give you greedy collectors a chance to have an event item, and you are complaining and overcomplicating it. You want the black one? Fill the form and "recycle" one of yours to be allowed to buy the new color. If you think it isn't worthy, just deal with it and keep without the Onyx forever.
Agents that don't have the anniversary red locker aren't eligible to this. If you bought the 6th of another color it was your choice or your mistake. Having the anniversary as 6th wasn't a choice it was a gift.
Why not 7? To not break the game and keep things even. Feel happy to have the chance to remove one if you want the black.
If it was up to me I wouldn't offer this as a choice and would just not allow the older agents to have the black, since they have one extra for free, and much rarer one already, while new player (post that anniversary and prime release) had to pay for it. It's a greedy choice to destroy one just to buy a new color.
I bought the blue extra key locker because I did not see there was one onyx key locker. Kan i also ask for deletion of that key locker and buy the onyx key locker?
Thanks for posting this, I didn't realize the capsule colors had been switched. The anniversary capsule is supposed to be black with red accents. In Prime it was colored red with black accents creating the near similarity to the red one. The best, immediate choice would probably be to fix the anniversary capsule to be black with red accents. A long term one would be to give the option to customize your capsule colors.
Please post an update once the deletion has been processed. Would be good to have that confirmation of being able to rebuy before doing it. Knowing my luck I'd end up shafted and unable to buy the 6th afterwards.
Will do. I filled in the form just before I did the post yesterday, so in time we'll know when Thia and the team process the removals.
How to get in touch with create tables to indicate another capsule? hurried and pointed out the gift box. Help please
As a CORE subscriber the ability to purchase the Onyx should have been available to me.
One of the perks of being CORE.
And it is! If you didn't reached maximum amount yet.
This is a genuine dilemma because there are 7 colours (though admittedly two are near-identical) and you can only have 6 of them - so a completist can never be satisfied. Of course it's nice to be one of "the privileged" who got the anniversary locker back in the day, but then it would also be nice to be one of "the privileged" who are able to buy the limited-edition onyx locker now.
I guess the solution is to delete the plain red locker and have both special ones. But doing that also means deleting 100 keys (or 100 random other items to make room for them).
I know Niantic is doing us a favour here, but really did they have to do it in such a tormenting way?
What are the chances that in the future one of the Niantic designers could come up with a way to make the anniversary locker not look almost identical to the red one?
if you save any key in a locker, it will be treated as a different item in the inventory. you'll could check or edit each locker name.
important not name but color
To answer some questions here, one of the main reasons for doing this was that there was a limited time when acquiring six key lockers was possible. Not many people have six, but it is our most dedicated fans who do. Therefore, we thought it felt bad to tell some of our most passionate players that they couldnt get this key locker even if they really wanted to, therefore Thia decided to try and do something about it. The thing is, there is no "script" or automated way of doing this. Thia is manually going person by person who signs up in the form and manually making adjustments to their accounts which as you might expect is time consuming. A bit of the reason for why is that it isnt enough to just delete the item out of your inventory, but we essentially have to tell the store that you're now allowed to buy another one which isnt something we have tooling to do. As for why we dont allow another key locker, there are a few issues: 1. your inventory is currently stored in a space which has a maximum size limit, the more stuff we allow you to put in there, the more likely you can hit that size limit (we'd have to invest a bit in finding a workaround to this as this limitation comes from Google) 2. having more key lockers are a competitive advantage because it essentially means more storage space which allows recharges/linking/etc. Again, this isnt to say that theres no chance we wont do it in the future, but just not now.
You’re a legend, thanks for taking the time fo communicate this to us.
@ofer2 could you give an insight about this, please? Thanks for your explanation!
I hope they delete it before event ends,...
I'm not hearing people where its allready deleted,...
Yet we got an answer from pinging ofer2 because he is the one who can best explain the present situation.
@ofer2 Thanks - those comments are always insightful, and greatly appreciated!
I second @Grogyan 's call for the souvenir locker. I realize that's a long-term project, but it has been a request for many years. Even better would be a sort of "flip book," where a key can be entered, is consumed, and then becomes part of a record that agents can browse and share with others. Not trivial to implement, but folks would pay for it.
