Our Researchers have detected a more vigorous flow of XM in our Portal Network, which coincides with what’s conventionally known as Summer Solstice in the northern hemisphere! From Thursday, 9 June, 16:00 UTC to Tuesday, 21 June, 16:00 UTC, a single-tier medal Solstice Recharge Challenge will be awarded to Agents helping bump 300,000 XM back into the Portal Network.
During this period, Agent Scanners will exhibit the following behaviors:
- AP for capturing a Portal increased to 2,000 up from 800
- 2x Power Cube output from Hacking
- Kinetic energy distance for Power Cube reduced from 8km to 4km
- 30-min Drone cooldown
- Double XM cost for Hacking, Deploying Resonators and Upgrading Resonators
- 19% Portal decay per day up from 15%
In addition to the earned medal, also available during the event period in the Ingress Store:
- Limited-time “Summer Solstice 2022” medal (2,500 CMU)
We hope you enjoy the varieties of medals, and we’re looking forward to more opportunities to add some fun to your Agent Profile. We appreciate your feedback and suggestions in the Ingress Community Forum.
