Coming Soon: Courier Meet You Out There Challenge
From Friday, 20 August at 1600 UTC to Monday, 30 August 1600 UTC, the following will be enabled for the duration of the event:
- +888AP for each new All-Time Unique Portal Visit as indicated by the Visited layer on the Layers button
- New: Drone cooldown reduced to 15 mins
Agents can earn a tiered medal based on AP earned via normal game activities during the event window. Use the Visited layer to find new unique Portals to visit and claim the bonus AP. A new metric will be activated in your Scanner to track progress.
Bronze: 88,888 AP Earned
Silver: 888,888 AP Earned
Gold: 2,888,888 AP Earned
To help with Agent efforts during this investigation, Apex bundles will be available in the store for the duration of the challenge:
- 8 Apex Event Bundle (8,000 CMU, limit 1 per Agent)
- 1 Apex (0 CMU, limit 1 per Agent)
Agents should also be on the lookout for media drops when performing Portal hacks and Drone hacks.
As always, please remember to be aware of your surroundings. We encourage players to follow local health and safety guidelines when playing Ingress.
— The Ingress Team
After reviewing Agent feedback and having discussions with the team, we've decided to add an extra event bonus to the Courier Challenge. In addition to the +888 AP for All-Time Unique Portal Visits, we will reduce the Drone cooldown to 15 minutes for the duration of the event.
anyone else think he looks kinda like a fly?
Great! Another weird design .
More with the Cyberpunk theme here 🤔
I am digging the silver surfer suited up medal! Thanks for the details!
i really like the tie and the suit 👏👏👏
The meme was real.
Someone has messed up the background of the picture
"What a terrible time to encourage people to travel for uniques" -- one of my Ingress chat buddies.
Yeah, I could get 2.8 million AP in ten days.
Thanks for encouraging players to prioritize the game over the virus.
Is Gold the blue one?
I'm shocked at the low effort. I was really hoping these images were a product in-house.
The transparency is messed up. Tapping on the picture brings you to the original with a better background
At least they are wearing their masks! 😁
So, does all AP gained count towards the badge, or is it only the bonus AP from new unique visits?
They forgot to delete the white in the displayed text 🤦♂️
All AP is counted, the unique visits AP is just a bonus
Both silver and gold look blue. More Niantic RES bias.
Will this event have another try, like the last one? Because, you know COVID.
Do not worry, Optima part 2 next month will have a green golden medal.
That's what I would guess, as well, but I don't see that stated unequivocally in the text. It doesn't say what the new metric actually is.
Will try, however, Auckland, New Zealand will likely have an extended lockdown.
Sydney is also in a massive lockdown as well.
Might just have to be happy with silver only
X AP earned, not something like
Visit X All-time Unique portals(which really, that's what it would be), so personally, I'm pretty sure 🙈
Nice AP levels! Sucks things are tightening down again for some folks. Hopefully they have hours during the day for outdoor activities and can figure out how to get some AP
Let's see, The Guy wearing a mask and something else is also going around which would be not a bad idea to wear a mask. So is it really a good time to hold a event to encourage to gain AP and visit new portals...
Also quite a few places are still under lockdown or under restrictions. Maybe not US, but there are other places then just US...
Niantic, estaría genial que aprendas a escuchar y apreciar a tus jugadores, ya que lo que compartimos es para mejorar el juego, este tipo de actividad y exagerada no es bien recibida por la comunidad. Para reflexionar. Gracias.
I don't want to give them any ideas, but it could be that the medal is just for uniques, but they wanted Apex to double it (to sell them, obviously), so that's why it's measured in AP.
