Some Niantic exec, presumably: Hey, those portkeys are annoying to use. Let's make them even worse by making them take forever as well.
I opened my first 3km portkeys last night and now understand what you mean. At least it's a change from spinning in a circle tapping idly?Some Niantic exec, presumably: Hey, those portkeys are annoying to use. Let's make them even worse by making them take forever as well.
I’ll choose the spinning. At least with spinning I can complete a portkey in 5 seconds. I have to wait for these things to show up in the 3k version. And I’m becoming more and more aware that my eyesight is not that great. Sometimes I have to wiggle the mouse a few times before I can spot it, so these moving wrackspurts are really playing havoc on me.I opened my first 3km portkeys last night and now understand what you mean.

What was killing me is the narrow width of a phone screen made it even harder to catch wrackspurts as they go by, but apparently the screen can rotate to landscape, so you can at least see the whole of the compartment window. Still not loving it, and it feels like more than a bit of a disincentive to grind more portkeys than required.Given the choice between 3 km with the waiting or 7 km with spinning I'll still take the 3 km version, but it's still a ridiculous design system. I'm glad that they're putting in more backgrounds for the events, but the waiting (and having it not register your taps) is a poor design choice.
Oh yes. It's probably the key ability for them. I started beelining for it during the first brilliant event and it more than doubled my power. Part of the benefit comes from the fact that Magizoologists have a much lower power overall than the other 2 professions....is it just me, or is that Magizoologist ability that gives you +40 Power when you have 5+ Focus really, really powerful?
I mean, that almost doubles my Power! And all I have to do is take an Invigoration potion before the first fight - or survive the first fight, and then use Healing potions to heal myself instead of Focus...
