Boycotting Ingress+Niantic Project
just announced their plans to dilute all Levels and Badge Achievements:https://plus.google.com/+Ingress/posts/Fs6wR3fWuSF
If they really do that, I will uninstall the app.
Players have worked extremely hard to reach l15, l16 (some would even argue for l14). And now NIA wants to give out gold, platinum and even onyx badges to everyone who reached l11 (which is nearly everyone), just because they want some cheap publicity!
If you tweet, do it before Thurs, Nov 6 9AM PT and tell the world what you hate most about the game! Here are some suggestions:
- After removing the capture date only cheap cheaters have access to capture dates (via scripts)
- Even repeated reports of bot-farmers have no effect. Even when their own faction reports them!
- People have spend up to 2 years for achieving certain platinum badges and now NIA wants to give 'em away for free!
It was terrible enough to give 2xAP. This puts everyone who can't be active these weeks at a disadvantage. and they even wanna prolong it! this ruins comparability!
achieve·ment noun \ə-ˈchēv-mənt\
: something that has been done or achieved through effort : a result of hard work
Is that so hard to understand?
p.s. this is a boycott-post. if you wanna rave how much you like freebies, do it elsewhere.
