Today Niantic is giving away some free mods, including a Softbank Ultra Link Amp. So let’s take a moment to remember the time this year when agents really needed to make some long links, late September for Avenir Shards.
This event came right as this site was starting to hit its stride. A change from all previous shard events, for this one it didn’t matter which faction scored which shard where – all that mattered was how many shards made it to their targets. We brought you end to end coverage of this event, from the original announcement, to bringing you a map (Niantic added a map a few hours after we got ours up, but we kept it going anyway), to 5 installments of periodic coverage (1, 2, 3, 4, 5), to a final shard-by-shard recap.
We had a lot of fun tracking shards here, even though we didn’t have any shards close enough to touch, we know you have stories to share, and we’d love to hear them.
