Just a short update, we noticed that in the last 4-5 days, the Portal decay rate was back down to 10% per day!This didn’t last long, however, and after further study, it seems the Decay rate is back to 15%, I will wait for all of my portals to decay today to confirm it.
How can we improve Portal Decay Logic? Here are some of my ideas:
Make Portal decay depend on Portal Level
In this way we could make High level portals decay faster, and it has some logic behind it, like the more XM in a Portal, the more unstable the portal becomes. In this way, the further you level up you will have to work more. If you want to make a L8 portal farm, you and your friends will need to take care of it, and recharge it more often.
Make Portal decay depend on Deployed Mods
It’s similar to the previous idea, with more mods, and their higher rarity will increase the instability of a portal and they would decay faster. This way Portals with Very Rare Multi-hacks and Heat sinks will decay faster, and will balance the game a bit.
Make Portal decay depend on Links and Fields
Portals should decay faster if they have more fields and links created with it.
