Add an alert when mods are being destroyed
So, lately I see a rise of accounts going to a portal and only destroying the mods from said portal. They do this through careful ultra striking.
I would like to receive an alert / push notification when my mod gets destroyed. In a similar fashion as when I now see a reso of mine being attacked.
You can get those with email notification, just need to enable that in your settings.
Not the same.
So far I've noticed that it's only mentioned when I also had resonators being destroyed in that email. I didn't do a thorough search though. I see things like this :
2 Mods destroyed by *** at 12:03 hrs GMT
No remaining Resonators detected on this Portal.
Also, I'd like to add to my feature request : also show it in the regular activity feed. So that if I flip the portal, it will be visible for all when just the mods are striked (the mods aren't mine anymore, obviously).
Actually no, you will get email notifications on mod destroyed even if no reso is destroyed.
when deploying put one reso near the center. no more mod US without knowing
Why the disagrees? This is true.
However, I understand they are asking for the ability to have in game notifications. I'm a bit surprised there's not at this point.
No idea... Oh well, to each their own.
I agree though, that in-game notification would be good to have.
Strage that I get email notifications of destroyed mods already
Good for you.
But in the end, I wasn't asking for email. People keep bringing it up, it's not the same. It's not on the same level as alert or activity feed.
The email is a push notification
It is the same thing.
You get Ingress game push notifications when the portal is under attack, regardless of it is a resonator or mod.
Setting up your email for attack notifications, makes it clearer what was destroyed or what was attacked.
Hmm... I thought that was the only good use of Ultra Strikes, and placing a Resonator near of the center of the portal being the proper counter-measure for that.
I've had the emails set to auto archive for so long.
Its not available to deploy 1 rezo in a range for an example 1m of center. Bad actors can attack directly at portal center with tons of US1,slow but too stealthy.
So i am absolutely agree with that idea.
NB email notifications - bad idea. You can't quick-open scanner via email.
Having the ability to secretly destroy mods is a nice feature of the game imho, by doing so you expose yourself to drifting, forces you to store some low level strikes, it’s not something you can improvize.
I thought it was a valid tactic and makes for more interesting game.
Adding notification would just dumb things down, again.
There are a lot of in-game and e-mail alerts already, and we want to be inundated with more alerts. Based on my experience, a lot of alerts cause "alert fatigue" and may annoy new players out there. Not too much, not too little, just right (in moderation) is okay.
how can one use l1 us on portal center but not deploy one reso in the same center ?
or are you talking about spoofers ?
Ultrastrikes are there for a reason.
Pinging mods off.
Usually low level US is a valid tactic to ping off mods when attacking rabid rechargers.
It's fiddly and time consuming. There should be no penalty for using this technique by notifying the owners.
Owners already get notifications, though, if they have emails enabled. And back in the day (I don't know about now), the emails were timely enough that I could get a key out to recharge by the time the attacker was ready to switch to XMPs.
Back in 2012 and 2013, there were in-game alerts and action logs for mods being destroyed.
However that soon became very annoying and thus Niantic decided to remove such logs.
