To whom it may concern.

As an active L16 Enlightened based in Exeter, with Plymouth and occasionally Oxford being other places I've been active, I've been playing Ingress for a little over 2 years.

In May this year, I took a trip to Accra, Ghana to meet my mother in law and, when I could, play some Ingress.

Of the 190 portals in Accra, I managed to capture less than 10 due to a combination of the following issues:

1 - Extremely poor internet speeds resulting in failed logins into Google and Ingress (or so it seemed).
2 - Possible proxy issues as some of the mobile networks offer free data for some domains, but not all domains.
3 - Attempting to use different handsets with different local sim cards in an attempt to maintain a connection.
4 - Having to get my phone locally unlocked to allow for a non UK sim card (I wasn't present for the unlocking as it takes about 3 hours to get to the centre of Accra in rush hour traffic).

I made my second largest ever field in Accra (31K MU) and was hoping to make a significant one when I travelled to Cape Coast, specifically, Elmina Castle - one of the ports used to hold slaves prior to transportation to the West Indies. An emotional trip to say the least.

But when I get there, do the tour, sit with some locals, I try and capture the 2 portals there and just lose kit as it doesn't hold.

Pretty much the entire experience of playing Ingress in Accra was poor and very frustrating.

I took a flight home on the 23rd and landed on the 24th. A direct flight, so maybe travelling 5100km in 6 hours (ish) was enough for you to think I've been spoofing.

When I get to my email, I find I've been terminated and can no longer play a game that has given me a lot of new friends, a significant weight loss and a much happier life.

In the name of full disclosure, back on the 24th April 2015, I reported myself as I was showing off to my son about my work. He asked if I could play Ingress on my VM environment (Android development). Reference [9-7919000006753]. I loaded Ingress and walked about a bit. No hacks/captures/links/fields. I never got a reply to my report and seemingly no action was taken.

I would appreciate having my account reinstated. The communities I'm part of in Devon can all vouch for me being a genuine and active agent. I'm pretty sure that even some Resistance Agents would, probably grudgingly, agree that I am a genuine player.

Regards,

Richard Quadling.

Agents,

This week we enabled a new component of our anti-cheat system - specifically focused on agents trying to falsify their location and automate gameplay. We consider any technical mechanism that does these things to be cheating, including applications that inject false locations or techniques to maintain a stale location. This new component resulted in the termination of accounts that showed clear signs of cheating and we have verified these results are highly accurate.

Our goal is to provide a fair, fun and legitimate game experience for everyone. We will continue to work with all of you to improve the quality of the gameplay, including ongoing optimization and fine tuning of our anti-cheat system. If you believe your account has been terminated incorrectly, you should report it to the Ingress Help Center.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support, Agents.
