Distance problem for badge
It's near 10 degree wind chill, so that makes 6 km very tough. After the first km+ where i got the other 5 missions finished, I said, yeah we're slow driving the rest. So I did laps around an apartment complex, making sure to never break 10. Most of the time just at 5+ mph. That would easily be 6 km for less than an hour of laps.
Started getting worried after like 15 minutes, it wouldn't increment. After 20, now definitely worried, I wouldn't hit 6 by midnight.
I started a Kinetic just before I started the laps. All told for 45 min, the Kinetic said I only got in about 1.5 km. Definitely should be way more than that. So I gave up at 1150, since I had given myself 1 hour for less than 5 km, yet somehow still had 2+ km to go.
Anyone else have this problem?
Try doing a charge at each corner you turn. You need to create data points so that distance is measured at as many points as you can.
Will also point out, I submitted a ticket for this. The support bot says estimated time of reply was 14 days. What???
I did hack a portal each time around and inventory management/recharge, since there was nothing else to do
And keep speed under 7 mph. The important thing though is the data points, especially if you are doing laps, you want every side counted not a measure across the lap which can happen if it's just when the system grabs a measure.
I just want the badge. 6 km is super dumb. Should have been 2 tops. All the Mission legs could be done under 10 minutes after you get to mass of portals, except walking.
Think of it like bread crumbs, I take a portal and charge each reso separately as I make my way around my loop and the distance just adds up no problem. Though it is not real time and I have waited for it to catch up.
6 km is not so much. I get a lot of distance from adventure sync just doing my daily activities. I'm a tap hacker, I got plenty of walking trying to find L1 portals I could successfully glyph hack for 60 points. Glyph hacking is such a waste of time.
This would help, if I had more time for the badge, which should have included Sunday too
It began collecting data a day early so meeting the requirements seemed easy. Except for the glyphs.
If you have adventure sync enabled, this is not necessary anymore.
But 10mph is definitely too fast.
This is no longer needed with adventure sync
I think part of the problem is the game checks in on your progress every so often. We’ll see once a minute, I don’t actually know how often. So if it takes a minute to do a lap at your place, the game thinks you’ve really only move…100ft or something. Speed should be 11.5km/h or less.
7km/hr is the speed limit I've found.
Which is a problem if you walk faster than 7km/hr
Average walking speed is 4km/hr
Hint: Two wheels, chain drive, handle bars and human powered. Very efficient km generator.
Bah, it's not like they tell you about this data point 'bug'/feature of the game. I just want the badge or another shot at it.
I'm looking at the walk I did on Saturday - 4.08 miles and that's 6.57 km
I already had 1 km with the stats so there is some variability present.
Lol, I wrote what support resolution they were giving me and it's being censored
Guess I have to water it down. Support basically said: No, you're out of luck, everyone that got medals is everyone that got them. We're not handing out any more.
I had planned on going to the anomaly, but now I think not, nor will I promote ingress in any way. I did guess 1/5 of the player base was going to leave with intro to machina. The player cannot handle much more negative
One of the things I both love and hate about Ingress is that we are not given detailed info about the game mechanics. I love figuring things out and the community learns and shares information. Sorry you missed out on the medal, the learning curve in this game can be unforgiving.
Leaving a badge till the last minutes probably not a smart move.
Plus hoping that cargressing can solve everything.
I enabled adventure sync during the event and helped me to do 3 of the 6 km.
