NianticBrian Niantic › admin
From the Niantic Project Archives, we're bringing back a popular vintage researcher medal loadout bundle (digital kit) to the Store for a limited time, ending Thurs, Dec 19 at 10AM PST. Like previous Umbra researcher medal loadouts, this is available 1 per agent and includes 1 in-app medal:
Archives: Hank Johnson Bundle (30,800 CMU)
- Archives: Hank Johnson (2018) in-app medal
- XMP Burster at your access level x40
- Resonator at your access level x10
- Power Cube at your access level x20
- Rare Heat Sink x3
- Rare Multi-hack x3
- Very Rare Portal Shield x2
- Aegis Shield x2
- ADA Refactor x2
- Jarvis Virus x2
If this vintage researcher medal is well received, then we'll bring back 1 researcher medal per month, available for a limited time window.
How about just the medal without the loadout?
Stop selling L8 and VR items in shop! 😡 now Ingress Prime are P2W. Please listen on users feedback.
@NianticBrian How about 2015 badges? :)
It's one per agent. It can't be purchased multiple times
Only medal!!! ✌️✌️
Stop crying about these sort of things. Loadout cards were available for a long time, this is not something new. Organize a farm and farm some items, stop complaining about stuff that doesn’t matter.
i personally would like to know what the medal is, I think I already got this one, unfortunately.
Are the CMU values going to drop? That's expensive in my currency. It's a very cool badge, but it's too much. I spent my spare CMU on the ada from last anomaly.
Stop trying to sneak in high level gear in the store packs! The community don't want the game to have any form of pay to win, and Nia has many times promised to not sell high level gear. Why is this so hard for Brian to remember?
@NianticBrian thank you for taking in user feedback 😎
It's one I don't have. Thanks!
Thought the subject of level 8 gear being for sale had been covered before? Why do this again?
One time off purchases are reasonable and just like getting a VR/R Load out cards.
Also, please release 2015 badges :3
Thanks NIA. Finally, it was also on the players who want to have the old medals also like. I hope it will continue in the future. A big compliment to you NIA.
Not really. It's still missing the actual advantage of being a code redeemable by anyone, like an agent out in the field that needs an emergency flip card.
I'm happy to pay half that each month for the old badges but without gear load out.
Currently impossible , I guess 🤔🤔
It's this one.
Also I never heard people complaining about loadouts at anomalies and 1331 events. It's a one time thing same as the cards. If you've ever used a loadout it can only be used once,after that it's useless. This is the exact same thing Ingress isn't becoming pay 2 win. It's still impossible to buy AP, you still have to play the game like anyone else. A badge and a few busters won't change it in the slightest.
I personally like this better since not everyone can get to events to get the character cards, this way it's open to anyone who wants it. The character badges are a really cool part imo. I'd honestly welcome random badge drops through the year 👍
Meanwhile players have been asking for 2 years to allow the 5 Key Locker bundle to be purchased while having the Anniversary one. But making money is bad?
Once a month, at this price, I don't mind. I can probably hack all this during the month with good farms.
This is an awesome idea @NianticBrian . Hope to see more researcher medals coming soon. I already have the Hank 2018, so I'll wait for the next. 😂
Niantic dont listen now on agents feedback! I hope @NianticBrian understand and never sell VR and L8 items in store.
Like other loadouts, this bundle also includes gear at your level. It’s 1 per player, 1 per month, and I feel that’s a fair compromise for those who occasionally want to purchase high-level gear and those who don’t want gear higher than level 6 in the Store available year-round. I hear both sides.
2015 medals are certainly in the Archives. Are there specific medals people would like to see in Jan if we continue with these loadouts?
Not the same as a load out card. Please stop spreading misinformation. https://community.ingress.com/en/discussion/comment/52277/#Comment_52277
I don't understand why it can't just be the character medals? The physical cards have been offered various times for comparison.
Okay then. I'll be submitting my account deletion request tonight. This stuff was gone over in nauseating detail when the store was brought online originally and Niantic ended up promising us it would not be done again in the future. If that basic promise cannot be kept, you're no longer trust worthy.
All of the previous character badges that have been offered. The purchase can include a pdf of the dossier card.
Being honest, if it's been 2 years and those are still with just one keylocker, they don't need it.
But, yes I want to buy the 6th, because I already had 2 when they gave away the anniversary, and became really surprised when I couldn't buy over 5.
They do listen to feedback, this time. Selling character badges might get them some income. If you don’t like the inventory that come’s with the character badges, give it away to someone that does :-)
This is not pay to win. Selling unlimited x8 unlimited would be pay to win.
