Just came across this article that claims to have a source from Niantic saying soon we’ll be able to remote fortress from home via a “Knight Bus” feature. @HPWULola is this true??? 👀
Take a quick read. What do you think?
I just saw that too. No reason why they can't like they kinda did for PoGo and they hinted at it not too long ago. Fingers crossed!🤞🏼🤞🏼
Glad you are excited! We will have more official information to share next week - stay tuned!

That's.. not a denial!? :)
I fully expect to see @AuroraKadavra driving the Knight bus when it picks me up!
And @Acumen better be on it too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
“Little old lady at 12 o’clock!”
This will be a great addition! Do you think it will stay even after everything opens back up?
That's a good question @Profezor and it gets me thinking.
The quarantine changes they've made so far have just involved changing the mechanic of existing parts of the game (TTD brew time, spawn frequency, etc) and so will be easy to change back at some point.
If they're going to the trouble to add a whole new mechanic for the Knight Bus, they probably won't remove it in a month or two when life goes back to normal. So it will probably be a permanent part of the game.
If it's a permanent part of the game, it can't be better or more convenient than actually going out and playing the game like we did pre-covid, otherwise no one will go back to playing that way. So I expect that either the Knight Bus will be added with some limited benefit (enough to help those stuck at home, but not enough to be better than going out and meeting people at a local fortress), or it will offer better benefits but once the quarantine is over it will cost gold to use it.
I agree with you @MtPollux. I don’t think they’ll go through the trouble (and I assume the coding for that feature must be pretty involved) to just remove it a few months later. Like you said, it might be limited in scope, like 2 times a day or something. Or it might have a cost. Either way, we’re all pumped for it! And I really hope we can somehow battle with friends from our list who aren’t near us (but that part may be a pipe dream).
Monday to day, is it next week yet?
@Kodokmag in the states on the west coast we are still Sunday afternoon. I doubt that the team is going to release anything until at least Monday their time. Good wishful thinking though! 😊
I still need more than 100 redbook. I hope i could finish my magizoo lesson before 1 year anniversary. Dont want to fall behind when (maybe) new lesson will coming up. 😢
Here are those details I promised :D @MrSciGuy
Lee Jordan-And the crowd goes wild!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Everyone is on their feet yelling @HPWULola SHE'S OUR QUEEN!
@Dewin99 👍️ I was just popping in to post that graphic! Thank you

THANK YOU SO MUCH @HPWULola!!! 😱🤩🥳
...here to stay, fantastic! This will be exactly what this game needs, giant leap forwards. Well done, Portkey and Niantic.
The Knight Bus is here and it is glorious. 'nuff said.
