What does it take to get a blatant cheat on +Ingress
banned, +NIA Ops
? Over the last month or two, there's been repeated observations of green agents GPS spoofing and multi-accounting across the Lancashire county of England, and the agents in question have been repeatedly reported by both Enlightened and Resistance agents, specifically PrestonGeek
, and the blue accounts RichardAspenBOT
, the former declaring to everyone in the area I was a "pedo", and generally created to harass me. He's killing the game for so many agents on both sides. Please, for the love of the game, stop him before everyone else in the area quits. We're fairly sure he's manually controlling a bot - faking the GPS position, but manually attacking/deploying the portals by human means - and is determined to massively disrupt the game for everyone else... he's been at completely inaccessible portals, observed not being where he's claimed to be, and we've had agents all over verifying his lack of presence. Short of having a teleport or a jetpack, anyway... Oh, and to cap it off, he looked me up online and sent pizza to my door. Very mature, but to be expected with the sort of person who GPS spoofs to grief people.
There's also other known spoofers/cheats there, including Leemc1989
, and several others. There's images of some of the abuse here - https://plus.google.com/photos/116269978088561437628/albums/6123157226441429265
- and we'll collect more as we see it.+Matilde Tusberti
Please... someone look at this. It's not remotely fair. I've no issue playing toe to toe with my fellow agents on both sides, but this is ridiculous.
Edit: Today, we've seen the most blatent version of his cheating (2015-03-13). PrestonGeek and DELTA78G had their intel focused at Fort William.
