*****(GPS issues that were present seem to have been resolved. Thank you.)******* This is a game that defines the purpose of technology. I see families sitting outside (together) in the evenings. Kids playing. People interacting again, being competitive and yet still willing to help you. I could go on and on but you would do better to just give it a chance.
Please give verification security button for load or dig history activities (make more harder to guardian destroyer script) ... please protect us from guardian counter and spoofer.. i see fake gps and etc still can be running safely...
Newest version: support is still incompetent. Spoofers still ingame - the same ones since the early days. Older comment: Non-existing support. Literally no way to get directly in touch with developers so they can respond personally. Shame, because the game concept is great. Founder-player.
This game used to be inovative and actively developed but its only dust and spiderwebs now. Nothing exciting added in ages. Its also INFESTED with Spammers. A lot of spammers. Ingame comm chat is almost unusable because of spam. While location spoofers happily zip around, niantic bans regular players because of semi auto ban system. Also Niantic favors resistance faction. Why not blue and green combo app logo? Having it in blue only delivers clear message.
This is not something you want to get involved with. Ingress is an amazing game, but some players are really terrible people, and the nature of the game enables stalking and harassment in a level I could have never imagined. Niantic support is worthless.
It was great when I first started but between the scrapers, spoofers and Niantic's inability to stop either of these two forms of cheating, the game has lost its enjoyment. The Ingress community has suggested numerous methods for Niantic to use in order that the cheating be stopped, but they are either incapable, unwilling or worse, indifferent, to solving the issue once and for all. This game will be killed off by Niantic not listening to the player base. This review is subject to be changed in the event that Niantic stops scrapers and spoofers. Edit 18/4/17: Niantic has implemented better anti-spoofing measures, but it is still hit and miss. Subsequently the delay between reporting spoofers and the reports being acted upon has been reduced substantially, although Niantic still aren't divulging the requirements for a successful report. Rating raised from 1 star to 2 stars.
