All of my super casules in my inventory are now regular/non-trbbling capsules. ****, over?!?!
tl;dr: Yes, this is working as intended.
We retired the Quantum Capsule this morning and converted them to regular, non-interest bearing Capsules so you retain your item organization, and also did a one-time grant of Rare Kinetic Capsules for each Quantum Capsule that was converted. We also temporarily reduced the Kinetic Capsule distance requirement to make it easier to craft different resource types.
The compound interest from Quantum Capsules impacted our game economy as well as our infrastructure costs to run Ingress because we were previously running this interest check in the background across each Quantum Capsule on each Ingress account every day. As you mentioned, Quantum Capsules are over.
Here, let me be a bit more helpful, by providing a link to the original news item: https://www.ingress.com/news/retiring-quantum-capsule/
This morning? Not in *most parts of the world* Lol
You can retire your capsules, but not mine. **** your expendable kinetic capsules. They DO NOT replace Quantum Capsules. I want PERMANENT Kinetic Capsules to replace Quantum Capsules. Send me an email when I get my capsules back, so I know when to reinstall ingress.
Founder, eh? Remember when there were no interest-bearing free loot boxes?
adapt and move on
You have exactly the same number of Quantum / MUFG now as when you started playing.
Move them back
(Of all the things that have happened in Ingress over the years, you chose this hill to die on?)
