Where is the Competion? I enjoyed the game because there was Competion against real people i can meet. Not because i can play along with someone to just collect AP....
So this is why the Anime was nothing like IRL.. little chance of working with people trying to block any and all progress over the last 4-5 years. And besides, plenty of areas would welcome higher decay as they are outnumbered in the area. Not a great challenge imho.
huh this isnt xfac ? any faction who links the target in goal wins no ?
it's like playing CS without killing anyone
Finally!!! a Real Shard game!!! 2 weeks and not 3 months is okay for many. Can't wait!
Can I just clarify what exactly the decay will be?
Is it as a percentage of the current numbers, or percentage points? Or a combination (percentage for decrease, percentage points for increase)?
Quite a difference... percentage of current is basically nothing noteworthy, percentage points is huge.
Percentage of current:
•decrease by 75%: 3.75%
•decrease by 50%: 7.5%
•increase by 50%: 22.5%
•increase by 75%: 26.25%
•decrease by 75%: -60% (will they recharge themselves?)
•decrease by 50%: -35% (ditto)
•increase by 50%: 65%
•increase by 75%: 90%
Oh I see. This an Xfac huh? Well I'm anti Xfac so I'll play defense and derp all of the things
#MissionZeroShards! better 75% decay than XF!
I'm not excited about an xfac shared-goal shard event.
It entirely misses the point of a competitive game. This isn't Pokemon Go, stop trying to make it so.
I've been part of every shard to pass through our region. I'm likely opting out of this. Worst case scenario, decay is up and we get to farm more AP. Best case scenario, a near-nonexistent droprate on ADA, Jarvis, and Aegis gets a miniscule bump.
It's the last 14 days of [redacted], too... so early retirement for those of us who both don't want another ugly medal and won't use that Prime sh*tshow.
Too bad, too, because accelerated decay was always my favorite time to play, and xfac shards is never going to succeed.
Yeah... I don't want an ugly badge being my last, I've managed to avoid the others so far. Just gonna leave my inventory over cap (nobody wants to take anything anyway) and retire as planned on the 30th.
Sadly, going to end up with the surely to be ugly Redacted badge regardless. Meh.
... Thus making it cross-faction shared goal and removing any competitive element.
This is as asinine as Pokemon Go research goals. Yaaaaay... factions no longer have any impact on the game.
i used to love global shards. sometimes it feels like nia has april 1st at every new announcement. the challenge to develop safe and surprising routes and be faster or more people at the shard portals at the weirdest time of a weekday was the main thing of shards. renting helicopters, going out in snow storms and all the real fun of the this game will be completely gone. i somehow doubt participants really feel they accomplished anything, by scoring shards this time. so next time we'll have xf anomalies? please remember this is an agent's game!
as much as i also like xf events, as global shard veteran i can't reveal my keys and routes to the other faction - i would loose any credibility and trust within my own faction. so guess i sit back and watch this time? no more travels to strange new islands or mountain tops.
Oh stop whining about xfac.
You'll have plenty of time to compete with the other faction when Umbra comes around in a few weeks.
CF shards? Worst event ever!!
And eternal crosses for winning! Who is an author of that?
We are not PoGo, we are not HP
We want a real ingress, we want fight against factions, we want sleepless weeks at targets and at intel, we want action, wins and losses, emotions, we want real competition!
Not that time, really. I'm out.
Until that changes, too.
First Helvetica, now Avenir? What font will they think of next 😂
(and please don't say "Avenir Next")
Reward the faction with the most Shards with a Medal. Give competion and not XFAC collaboration. Or make red links to disturb the Shards (create an Unknown Red faction only Based data and alogaritm we had to fight).
Nianitc - you stupid idiots
Event-manager Niantic - stop taking drugs
There are no words .. I didn’t think that I could fall even lower, but the Niantic continues to conquer the bottom
Ingress is dead.
This event feels like dancing on a coffin of the previous Ingress.
We don't want easy medals.
We love competition.
Global shards has always been a game changer for many Agents. It's a war, an adventure, a story. "You should have been there!"
Now, after years of waiting, you give us a fluff piece, that nobody wanted.
The way it was announced, this event could only lead to disappointment. The first thing we read, in big letters, is "SHARDS". For those veteran enough to have experienced global shards, it brings back a lot of memories. The sleepless nights, the excitement, the fierce battles to control a portal, the last-minute rides to faraway places, the joy and the despair.
Only a few lines later do we discover this event will actually be xfac, and therefore will bear little resemblance to global shards as we knew it.
If it had been announced first as a xfac event, that happened to be with shards, it would have felt differently. But when we first believe that the most competitive part of the game is returning, and then realize it's really going to be collaborative, we might get the impression that Niantic is trying to **** the competitive side of Ingress. Emotional roller coaster.
Agree!! Totally!!! 2 Faction, competition, 1 winner.. Why destroy this game??
This is nonsense
I want portal decay increased because that means I can get more AP
But also I want a badge! And shards never come to my rural area so nothing for me to do.
Hope it’s just a joke... :( xf-shards...
I'm really looking forward to the Wingdings Challenge.
SEND THE SHARDS TO GITMO WHERE XF SHARDS BELONG! 😃
