[Feature Request] Very Rare Kinetic Capsules
I'll preface this first by pointing out that a lot of players will not like what I am suggesting.
There have been several topics of what to do about portal key duplication rates, whilst still allowing them.
Rare Kinetic Capsules are just too common
Kinetic Capsules have devalued Very Rare items.
Portal keys? Still haven't been addressed
Since their introduction, Kinetic Capsules have made it easier to get those hard to get Very Rare items, which is great on paper, in practice, they have devalued the rarity of items, significantly.
Crafting and using Very Rare items faster than one can consume candy.
Personally, I cannot use them up fast enough, even as junk mods.
I have been racking my noggin thinking of something that brings items back to their expected Rarity value.
1) Enable Rare Kinetic Capsules to craft ONLY up to Rare Items. Not Portal Keys
2) Bring in Very Rare Kinetic Capsules. Adding 1 to CORE load out too.
3) VR KCs will be able to craft Very Rare items from Rare items, not commons.
4) VR KCs to also duplicate a very limited number of portal keys.
5). Also Allow for 1 VR Capsule to be bought in the in app store per week.
5) The Common KC we all have should have limited capability to craft a few Rare Items. But still primarily be able to craft Common items such as L1 resonators from L8 Resonators
Since the number of Portal keys that can be duplicated are very limited, and can only be done in VR Kinetic Capsules.
What about Quantum Capsules?
Leave them to dupe common and rare items, just not portal keys. Since this is just a value on the Ingress database, it takes zero effort and no coding to do to adjust the duplication of portal keys to zero.
Have you asked around about player habits?
I have, their habits around Kinetic Capsules are the same as mine, and they too feel that crafting Very Rare items has devalued their rarity.
