A year of blogging over, time for 2017.

As we fast approach 2017, we wanted to look back on what a fantastic year 2016 has been here at Fev Games! This year has by far been our busiest year, as well as our most successful one. Fev Games …

This is not me

Since +Aaron Burkett is still learning Google Plus, I thought I would help him out.

After I saw +Ethan Lepouttre name pop up around town, I knew something was coming and sure enough he posted about a Klue card dead drop - https://plus.google.com/+NovemberLima/posts/LcpaTGQNJB8

Aaron (IGN - aggroaaroN) was the closest to the portal and got out and received it!

After my #OnePlus 3T arrived, I realized my micro SIM was not a nano SIM. I think I could have cut it and made it work, but my experience cutting SIM cards has had bad results in the past.

So off to AT&T I went. I asked for a new SIM card, with no change to my plan or anything. Somehow they talked me into scanning the box of my new phone for activation, presumably pulling the IMEI.

As the store was closing, I left with nothing more than 3G stuck with no voicemail and no LTE.

It took 3 different calls with AT&T support. It takes getting someone who understands the problem. I got my plan provisioned with the IMEI of my old Nexus 5 and just like that - LTE and voicemail returned.

One representative said it was illegal to do this and would not do it, as random IMEI scans of the AT&T network would notice the mismatch and cancel my plan and/or service. I'm not sure of the truth of the matter on that, because my OnePlus One was provisioned as the old SGS3 I had for 2 years without a single problem.

So after a day of stress, my OnePlus 3T is working great. Really wish OnePlus could get their phones "approved" into AT&T's system so my device does not come up as "Unknown", but price you pay for a cheap foreign phone I guess.

4 days in a row going down to the Tampa Riverwalk. I'm definitely not the first nor last, but finally. I left the apartment at 8am needing 1.2 million more and at 7pm got it.

Quite the journey since I started around Thanksgiving of 2012 and finished around Thanksgiving of 2016. Met a lot of people along the way and now the fun really begins.

However first I need to catch up on all the hobby projects and things I abandoned.

Times are bleak these days #Ingress.

I've reported over 20 accounts in the past few days and at this rate I don't expect anything to change until this unicorn rumored 2.0 version drops with an entire new client and server code base. The huge abuse of cheating is growing and it's causing agents to leave or simply quit playing. I know there are probably hundred of accounts banned before they do any action, but I only know about those that get through the cracks.

The Tampa area has been dealing with a huge influx of bots. We have one account that is L6 (BetsyRoss1752 - #321979/#317160) and based on public COMMS is just ADAing all green guardians.

Since I've started counting, I've seen 15 flip cards thrown from that account which doesn't even have 10KM walked yet. I've witnessed the account flip portals at times that simply are not possible. Hitting portals in closed trails while I sat in parking lot waiting for someone to come out.

Additionally, we have myself and other Resistance agents in Tampa losing guardian portals across the world (Yes even across the sea) to random L5/L6 accounts that once again (For those that share stats) have barely any KM walked and are ignoring portals in the action circle of the target portal. It's very suspicious to take a 2h hike up a mountain and only claim 1 portal despite multiple being in range of that one.

So it seems there is a war of guardian bots and that doesn't even begin to describe what is going on.

Next up we have the spoofers. Living in Florida makes battling over the Gulf an interesting battle. It's nothing like playing in Arkansas so building fields or controlling the links across the Gulf is fun.

One account (Benl324 - green - #320877) has repeatedly claimed credit by pinging involved agents of operations that he will kill any portals involved in gulf operations and sure enough he does, time and time again from an account that is not his.

1. WC272 - blue - (#320871)
2. UDix0 - green - (#321542)
3. KaHood - blue - (#319434)
4. lnnamoramento - blue - (#317149)
5. SlickChip - blue - (#317162)
6. YesTHATagent - blue - (Banned before I could report)
7. CCurr - blue - (#316318)

All the accounts above have killed strategic portals around the gulf. Some of these portals are on islands or areas that simply cannot be visited at the times killed. Obviously Niantic agrees as 3 - 7 are already banned so thank you.

However, with every account banned a few more pop up in their place and by the time they are banned the damage has already been done. People have stopped planning these trips to islands and more, because whats the point when it will be spoofed down within hours or even minutes?

Next up we have an interesting bot known as the shit mods bot. These accounts (almuxop - #324588, iksrmanx - #324663) wait on common green farm locations and the instant a mod slot is open they throw common shields or something not preferred like link amps.

I've been watching these accounts and I can't find any link/capture/deploy notification in COMMS. These accounts are obviously fake and being used simply to spam shit mods onto known green farms. They are either accounts ran by known agents and silently hack and get gear drops or another form of spoof bot. Almuxop is already banned but was quickly almost instantly replaced by iksrmanx which is still alive.

There are just too many to report. I haven't played in days because my time is spent writing detailed reports, but soon I will lose the drive to even do that.

I don't even want to talk about the COMM spam. I can't even hold a conversation with a new agent because every minute 3-9 messages that are multiple lines spam my feed. These accounts are banned very quick however. Just try and view the profile of one of those accounts, chances are its already banned.

Maybe it's time to enforce 1,000 XM picked up before allowing messages. Force these accounts to actually bot themselves in an automated fashion to send messages. I'm tired of looking at SPAM all day and it hurts recruiting new agents.

I know its probably a big rewrite of the client, but maybe hide messages from our COMMs if that account is banned and L1? Just any improvement is welcome.

You log so much information from us. Please start using some of this information and start issuing some real bans. If a banned account dropped gear to an unbanned account, it's probably safe to say that account is involved. Issue some bans or warnings to get people scared.

The only reason there is a market for the COMM spam is people are obviously not getting banned for utilizing those. It's time for that to change.

Since I'm already talking. MUFG Capsules are obviously laying in too many dormant accounts. People register a 2nd account and throw their MUFGs in them. It's nearly impossible to prove this -- but as someone who plays with 1 account and has no significant other to leverage for gear, some people I'm convinced are sitting on backpack accounts.

Something as simple as not duplicating gear in MUFG capsules if that account doesn't play will really force the hand of all these dormant accounts.

I saw the transparency you did with Pokemon Go, maybe its time to bring some of that to Ingress. We've waited too long to constantly be left in the dark of what is going on.

This build takes all the sprite images and removes them from APK. The new version will take a bit longer to load the Pokedex as it downloads and caches all images.

This is so we can't find the Gen 2 & sponsor images easily.

Probably unrelated, but I spoke about moving all images to be server side downloads in my Pokemon Go talk a few weeks ago at QCon lol.

My DHL courier just group SMS`d me along with 20 other people asking us for permission to leave our package if we are not home.

He/She asked for name, address and tracking number. There is now a random group of people messaging in a group chat wondered how they got added and people are blindly posting that information to our group.

I could redirect any of these packages to me with those 3 bits of information because this DHL agent just failed miserably in security. I called DHL and explained the situation and they are having a word with the courier, as they obviously can't do anything about an existing group chat.

Why do people have to group text? Mass text with reply to me only is so much cooler.

Just having an unlucky week. Caught a rock that spun up from a truck and cracked my windshield. A few days later and it's splintering further, so I guess I need to replace it sooner rather than later.

I found out Florida has a law that insurance rates can't rise and no deductible for windshield replacements so I got lucky.

I tried to do something good and purchased an SGS5 to help track down a Samsung apktool problem. My first purchase of a phone solely to help fix apktool bugs.

I brought the phone with me on my trips so I could hack in my hotel rooms when I wasn't busy. I no longer have the phone. I assume it was stolen during flying as I remember packing it up.

Android Device Manager and my Google account were on it. It must be off as it isn't detecting its location. I already locked the device and debating whether to issue the wipe command (which claims removes the ability to track it).

I'll take full blame if I stupidly left it somewhere, but I don't think I did so now I'm thinking it was just found during an inspection of my luggage and swiped. I should have carried it on vs checking it.

You live and learn.
