Loki badge!!! Good name. I love it... Besides... Didact = nemesis Oliver Lynton-wolfe = Loki... YES PLEASE!!!
Funny. This is the "I haven't been paying attention to anything, nor I know anything about the nemesis members being each a spectrum of light colours" couple of posts one expects from the usual haters... Lol.
Seriously, some Agents are asking for punishment if target not met?! Smh... Need to get a brain check.
Challenge is fine as it is, more people can participate, and don't need to make game harder. All good :)
Looking forward to it! I'm Hoping I can do some Fielding for this challenge cause I live in a 24/7 BAF State, And I've been wanting to finish a solo project I'm working on. So I'm very exited!
OMG, I want to get the top tier, but that is almost impossible given the timeframe
Hi @NianticBrian No the majority don't think it's too easy. The loudest may say so but they don't represent the silent majority. Your own data should verify this.
I don't think 800 is "easy" and neither should you up the difficulty of future challenges just because some complain loudly.
Initial reaction. Either **** a lot or go somewhere to pioneer. If I am getting double AP to take down so much simpler to do that. Not making sense again.
@NianticBrian will the updates indicate how many fields were created by FACTION to give some sense of color competitivity?
This challenge is virtually impossible for rural area agents.
I think this event will have a very low participation rate. That's because such an overwhelming mission is disappointing at Niantic headquarters, even when there is a new corona case.
I would like to provide a different event mission considering the current situation.
Previous was "light Magnus builder". This is "light EXO5 controller". The game repeating and repeating. It's annoying and frustrating. No more interest to do absolutely the same again and again and again.
I believe it will be possible to have this year's 4 together, separating the purples by the anniversary (at least). At least for me, I am going to have the Umbra and Didact together, and probably 3 platinum separating them from upcoming optima (but thats temporary until I got the obsidians).
Its easy enought to became an achieavable challenge. It might be really hard for the few who live in small areas with fewer portals. But for each 10 portals arranged in the right way, you can do up to 22 fields, trow a flip at each anchor and you will get 48 total. So you basicaly just need 20 portals and 4 flipcards (plus 4 random fields on the way) to reach bronze in less than and hour. You can even do it only one time a day, spending the rest of the day hacking for more flipcards and still reach the goal with 2 days to spare, activelly playing for about 1 hour a day.
Would be great to see contribution count per cell. Aswell comparison of cells, than we could compare. Would be fun 😉👍
I like these global Events. Ive already did resurgance 2 Times and don’t have any more excitements to Continue playing. So this Events would get me Continue n exciting to me
That's a lame cop-out. I'm married and have a full-time job. That's never stopped me from getting the top tier of any of the events medals, including EXO5.
800 fields @10 days isn't challenge, even in winter and -15...-20°c.
Why no platinum/onyx badge for hardcore players?
I'm not much into extra ranks, but what about giving 2x and wings for the recursed agents who get the gold goal two times, @NianticBrian ?
I made 844 fields in the Exo5, I hope get the top tier from the Ugly Didact badge.
Any chance of increasing drop rate for soft banks too so as to enable more fields from a flipped anchor, thank you
BASE: 5,500,000 control fields established
Will each field established by an agent count, regardless if it gets destroyed before event ends?
Or only field active when event ends will be counted?
Please clarify that.
In my opinion it is clear from the detailed announcement that the number of the fields will be continiously monitor and not just at the end of the challenge.Also we will be able to check the global progress through a community post daily. I guess that each measurement will be the result of the number of agents multiplied by the number of fields each one established up to the point of the measurement Like the umbra deploy challenge a few months ago.It is not like mu scoring.
As i said earlier this is my opinion as an agent.
As @NianticBrian said there will be no punishment if the goal is not achieved but positive reinforcement is preferred.
Every field counts !
Not really, it's over two weekends...you have plenty of portals in your area. Lots of park portals under fields. I'm sure you can fix that.
Think smarter, not harder, there are ways.
Maybe for you, not for all. I'm going to micro field up 800 odd fields and help others obtain their goals as well. Good team building practice here.
Oh noes, the best way to gain AP is a contest? Shucks, no one makes triangles anymore, right? Maybe try changing how you play your game. Lots of different ways in Ingress. If you normally do fan fields, try doing micro fielding instead or visa versa. If you don't want to do it, maybe help your local faction out, and help some newer agents learn how to field?
800 may feel easy to people living in cities with thousands of portals, when you live in a country where there are 3000 total, and in your city maybe 200 (not all of them easily accessible) and with 3 players in one faction and just one in the other faction it is not easy. I have a year and 2 months playing and have managed to be level 15, but already checked my historical data, and I haven't been able to complete more than 300 fields in a week more than twice during that period. So I know if I push it I may hit 300, but definitely would hurt the other 2 players in my faction if the player in the other faction is not as active as we would like him to be.
Encore un défi impossible pour ceux qui vivent à la campagne, je vais viser les 100 déjà...
For the EXO5 challenge, I did 2000 fields in less than 6 hours using altogether less than 40 different portals in two neighboring villages which (at that time) had together less than 120 portals. You just need some portals (15 in this case) that form something like a line and enough SBUL and and opposite faction viruses. if you have something similar to a line of 15 portals anywhere, you can do 600 portals using 20 SBUL and 20 opposite faction viruses in less than 2 hours. (Not counting key farming)
To maintain the integrity of the leveling system. I would guess that Niantic doesn't want event badges to be used as shortcuts to the top access levels.
For EXO-5 I did 2000 fields using less than 60 portals. Took a lot of key farming, and a bunch of SBULA and flip cards, but it is possible. Search youtube for the Michael Hartley videos on Ingress Maximum Fielding. I used a herringbone, with one stationary anchor, and a group of portals as the other base anchor. Set 'em up, knock 'em down with a flip card, move to the next base portal and rethrow. Lather, rinse, repeat. If you keep track of your flip times, you can flip back, conserving SBULA.
@EvilSuperHeros You are assuming that a player has a of flip cards and ULAs. Which is often not the case
