Congratulations! The Wayfarer Brazil Challenge has not only met their first two tiers but has far exceeded them! WOW! Since you all have done such an amazing job, we are adding a Tier 3! But first, let's celebrate with a Mid-Challenge Recap:
- 8,902 Explorers Participated
- 11,997 Accepted Wayspots
Wayspot Approval Goal:
Tier 3 - 16,000
- Tier 2 Rewards + 2 Extra upgrades
Yes, that means 4 Upgrades total! Best of luck and happy exploring!
Don't you think that increasing the rewards for a NON GLOBAL challenge with clear evidence of hard abuse is really the way to go?
Compared to the Russia WF challenge, there are some huge differences in numbers.
And why not punish those who submit and accept fake nominations instead of punishing the whole country? A third tier makes total sense given that 1) the goal was met within less than 48 hours and 2) other challenges had further tiers announced.
Btw, comparing raw numbers isn't fair. Russia has way more remote areas than Brazil. Also, Brazil has ~70 million people more than Russia.
Still no reviews for me from Brazil. Wasted my bonus location move. Ah well, won't be taking part in any in the future then
Me too - nothing to review from brazil or south america (only europe)
@gazzas89-PGO @TyBearius88-PGO where did both of you put your bonus locations?
I miss the disclosures on social media about the challenge. As the goal was quickly reached, many evaluators did not continue to participate. Despite all the problems, I believe we could have achieved 20,000 approvals.
Slap bang in the middle of Brazil
Don't tell you actually put it in the middle of Amazon.
Dunno exactly where, just found Brazil and plopped it in
The three nominations that you reviewed before the start of the event are all that were pending in the middle of nowhere https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/discussion/comment/115426/#Comment_115426
That's a completely remote place, I doubt you'll get anything from there
Pará, a state in the North region of Brazil.
Well damn, that might be why lol, I just picked somewhere thinking I would get all of Brazil
@NianticTintino since I've now discovered why I'm not getting things to review, can I he allowed, or could a niantic staff member shift my bonus location to a place in Brazil that is populated, rather than the middle of nowhere 🤣🤣
Same for me, I guess?
Ideally, this system does NOT rely on home or bonus location, but is an 'opt in' toggle with random nominations from the challenge area..
Tier 3 has been hit, we're now at 16033 new Wayspots
