An Open Letter to Niantic Labs at Google from the Ingress Resistance Warsaw community (http://www.resistance.org.pl/).

Ingress is not just a game; it is a way of life for many of our agents, who take every opportunity they can to advance their faction’s standings in the local war for XM and mind control. But this isn’t all, it’s not only about gathering XM, hacking and capturing portals, and creating control fields; it’s about building communities and bringing people together. Up until recently the war over XM in Warsaw has been real with real animosity between the factions (https://plus.google.com/+DuartePeralta/posts/bFbzJR6gCpA). A single cross-faction field art event has been organized to date (https://plus.google.com/108420283028823695148/posts/JSf4M9KSAbT).

But this has all recently changed, not because the players have changed, but because the game has changed. A third faction has entered the fold in force – you know which faction we’re talking about: the spoofers.

The two factions had joined forces in late December 2013 to identify and weed out this third faction. To do this a task force consisting of agents from both factions was put in place to find proof. As a result of their investigation many of the spoofer agent accounts were made public to the Ingress Warsaw community. All of the agent accounts uncovered to date are resistance agent accounts (which is not an indication of their true factional alignment), the ones that we are 100% certain of are the following:
@BlueGardner 
@Przemos
@Fantomaks

A great number of players from both factions have already reported the spoofer agent accounts in question, but there has been no reaction from +NIA Ops. The spoofers, as a result, have become malicious and come out from hiding. They are deliberately taking down Enlightened farms at a moment’s notice when legitimate Enlightened players have traveled great distances to meet in person and put up a farm.

We have read many a story of legitimate agents being banned, but here we have proven spoofers that are allowed to wreak havoc in our city.  We as the Warsaw Resistance have done everything in our power to stop this behavior that is ruining the game we love. It is now in your hands to deal a swift and decisive blow and end this madness with the above accounts.

In addition to the banning of the proven spoofers, we would like you to figure out a way to fix the game. We feel that the cheaters bring nothing but destruction with them – they cause legitimate players to become frustrated and eventually leave the game. The cause for unnecessary animosity between factions is also in part due to the way in which cheating seems to be so easy and tolerated by Niantic.
The game is broken – please find a way to weed out the cheaters automatically.

PS: We also ask fellow agents, no matter which faction you ascribe to, no matter which country of continent you live in, if you enjoy Ingress and don't want spoofers to ruin it, please show your support with a simple +1.

Wie kam ich dazu? Naja, es gibt wenig coolere Dinge als sich aufs Mopped zu setzen und nach Schottland zu fahren etc... Das hab ich geahnt, dann den Lappen gemacht, und dann hat sich die Vermutung bestätigt, seit dem mach ich jedes Jahr ne grosse Tour um die 5000km. (Ich bin kein Rennfahrer und hab einen von den Wetterfesten Textilkombis ;-) ). Die BMW R1200GS macht auch auf nicht geteerten Strassen nicht schlapp (Island, Piemont) und fährt sich dank elektronisch einstellbarem Fahrwerk auch auf Asphalt komfortabel. 300km/h erreicht man damit aber nicht (vielleicht 200, aber da wirds ungemütlich) :-)

Last week we had maybe a world premiere in Bucharest : the first Level 8 farm built by GPS spoofers!!
148 level 8 portals built in one day! 

Yes, we know the accounts are fake-ing their GPS location, we have been playing for 16 months already and we know how to pinpoint a spoofer.

Romania has a long history of GPS-spoofing issues:
- January 2013 - the first GPS spoofer is identified and shut down by Nia (it took, 2 (TWO!) days only)
- mid 2013 - the first hard-core GPS spoofer is acting in Bucharest; crysnet was shut down by NIA after 6 months
- mid 2013 - more than 5 spoofing accounts acting in Bucharest as a response to the above player; 3 of them were shut down by +NIA Ops  after 4 months; 2 still active
- end of 2013 / beginning 2014 - more than 8 (8!) GPS spoofing accounts are acting wildly and daily, around the clock, in Bucharest; here they are : Fakyr, Oracolul, Mioara, Aquatine, inbus, Alumigus, FrogBuster and agent_247964 - temporary name agent (there could be more, but we are 150% sure of these ones)

We have notified this situation through all possible channels: reporting, public posts, emails. See below a partial list of our efforts. 

As the situation is getting worse and worse, and this could happen in any country very soon (Bulgaria - was stormed by spoofers last week, the situation in China is well-known etc), I decided to downgrade Ingress in Play.

I invited all our local agents to do the same: rating Ingress with a maximum of 2 stars in Play. And explain properly why.

I like the game, my faction is still dominating Bucharest (we win every cycle, we build fields over Bucharest each couple of days), but this is not the game we want to play. We want to meet real players on the streets and socialize,  no matter the faction.

This is the most appropriate action to have our voice heard. I invite you to do the same: rate +Ingress  with a maximum of 2 stars. The rating could be improved immediately, as soon as +NIA Ops  proves it has implemented effective and long-term measures.
