This will be the last reversals of temporary game changes added since early 2020. The following change will continue to remain in place:

  • AP bonus for Capturing a Portal is 675 AP (added in 2022).

On First Saturday Event Style

FevGames is working on the future format of Ingress First Saturday that allows for a hybrid approach of virtual and in-person meetups.

On Ingress Mission Days

We have closed 2022 Mission Day applications and are working to review and confirm the list of 2022 Q4 Mission Days. We will open the application form for 2023 Mission Days soon.


We appreciate all the feedback and suggestions you’ve shared and continue to share in the Ingress Community Forum.

As always, please remember to be aware of your surroundings. We encourage players to follow local health and safety guidelines when playing Ingress (such as wearing masks and maintaining at least six feet/two meters of distance from other people).

    No global BB, event at all? 😳

  • PkmnTrainerJPkmnTrainerJ ✭✭✭✭✭

    I assume we will get a Halloween event, it’s just not added yet as October looks very empty.

  • MoogModularMoogModular ✭✭✭✭✭

    Really wishing the Second Sunday format would change

  • Neku69Neku69 ✭✭✭✭

    Im just like WHAAAAAT at reading the schedule.

    (But in a good way)

    New Agent Tutorial updates.

    Remove L1-L3 XMPs from new Portal and Drone Hacks.

    Change Portal decay rate under friendly Fields.

    Replace Apex with Rare Kinetic Capsules in C.O.R.E. subscription Loadouts.

    These changes will be more important than we think (*cough cough* decay *cough cough*). Also, finally no more C.O.R.E. Apex!

    12 November: Epiphany Dawn Anomaly - Primary Site: Los Angeles, CA, USA (#EpiphanyDawn)

    Details to be revealed in a separate announcement

    I hope every detail (including the eventual agent deployed BB) will be revealed in the separate announcement, for Superposition many details were revealed in Q3 news. I mean... Will EMEA and LATAM get their chance to get the anomaly badge?

    No challenges at all in Q4?

  • @Hosette it seems like niantic has heard your song! Maybe they finall my will remove apex from the core! Replacing with r-kinetic is just stupid, but at least you could recycle them 😅

  • InvestigateXMInvestigateXM ✭✭✭✭✭

    I don't mind that the anomalies are back to being on ground only again, but I do mind that there isn't a site per anomaly series in each region. As of now, Europeans are pretty screwed regarding Epiphany Dawn

  • Hmmm. "Primary Site" makes me wonder if there will be global opportunity to get the Anomaly medal again. Did they used to use the phrase "Primary Site" before the Beaconomalies?

  • And bring back badges for recharge rooms. The collective effort to farm keys and ship them across the continent deserves a medal more than BB ;)

    That or make Apex hackable :)

    I'm thinking there's a good chance we see the debut of rare kinetic capsules in the store during the Year 10 event with 1km kinetics.

  • #this

    If there wont'be the usual agent deployed Battle Beacons, then there should be Satellites in the other Regions.

  • Once again Latin America get's no ingress anomalies.

    I really hope global BB are announced so that people here don't have to spend a small fortune to fly to LA for the anomaly.

  • They are really only valuable for folks who recurse. Once you hit 16 they just sit there, unless you recurse again.

    that's what everyone thought about Germany until several weeks out.....

    Speaking of, the Superposition pack is now in store, with K card,


    Hopefully apex is optional.....

  • GrogyanGrogyan ✭✭✭✭✭

    There will likely be BBs for the Anomaly, makes sense. Even though they haven't said so.


    So no frackers coming in for CORE? @NianticThia seems like a missed opportunity.


    The decay rate of same faction portals under a field sounds interesting, hopefully this is a reduction in decay rate.

    Would like to know if the inverse is considered, opposition portals decay faster under their opponents control fields?

    Need some method to have the opposition encouraged to get out and take their opponents fields down

  • GrogyanGrogyan ✭✭✭✭✭

    Ironically, this is a topic that comes up in our communities as well.

    Some remember that we had regional hexathlons. @NianticBrian @NianticThia are these expected to make a return?

  • really??? I this the american way? The words "s t r i p" and "c r a p" are censored?

  • Oh i remember. I met my gf on hexathlon Miami ;) with being no. 1 in mods deployed competition (that's how you can hit on girls - "i'm no. 1 in this competition!" 🤣).

    Just day after i covered whole Miami with beautiful green multilayer. I remember sponsoring some SWAG for hexa test in Bydgoszcz, Poland. Fun times.

    But hexathlon was "always" (well - two times, because just after covid happened) possible to finish worldwide - located in every continent at once.

    I pay for C.O.R.E. because I want to support the game that I've been addicted to for almost a decade now. The extra inventory space is the biggest bonus for me, and I would still keep paying for C.O.R.E. if that was the only benefit.

    Different people find different things in the loadout kit useful. For me Apex boosts are just cruft that builds up in my inventory, while other people love them. Kinetic capsules are freaking awesome, OTOH, because I can convert power cubes into more power that consumes less inventory space-- I can have 10 PC8s that are worth 80K XM, or five Hypercubes that are worth 264K XM. (Or ten PC4s that are worth 40K, or anything in between, but I rarely hack portals below P7.)

    The right answer, of course, would be to give people a choice of loadouts because different people have different play styles and one size does not fit all.

  • CORE Loadouts. You'll never please everyone unless it's configurable by player.

    Cooldown time. It only impacts dirty hacks. So why is it a big deal? Are there players out there actually hurting for gear? Most of us recycle xmp and rezos by the hundreds weekly. This is a return to how it was for years until pandemic hit.

    Decay rate change. Up or down? If decay rate is increasing for friendly fields this basically discourages teams from trying to win cycles in their zone.

    Permafields exist because the only score kept in the game is MU. Big MU and controlling your zone is how you "win". Punish us for doing that and you take a big step towards running off your remaining active players.

    Want permafields down? Incent their destruction better. Make winning the cycle matter with tangible in game benefits for winning faction for next cycle. And/or let the fields have positive effects on friendly portals underneath and negative impacts on enemy portals.

    Permafields are ignored for weeks at a time in many areas because winning a cycle doesn't do anything.
