So just me that spent 2 hours trying to play without any weapons at all 😆 genuinely wondered why more people were no complaining about the difficulty, then tried beating the boss with my empty hands punches......doh! Great game, I laughed so hard 😂

OK, not making this easy for me as i appear to be blocked😂 however this should work.

+NIA Ops​ this sounds to me like Nik Tovey​ has fallen foul of an over zealous bot detection algorithm. I can confirm Nik is a real person and not a Bot and has turned up on ops smashing all our stuff 😉 (we are on opposite sides). If Nia​ could look at this it would be appreciated as real agents getting suspended unbalances the game.
+Sean Taylor​ +Laura H​ either of you able to help nik keep his guardians charged?
Good Luck..
 
OK so it's been a week now since I was on my travels on ingress with agents +Heather Howes​ +Phil Howes​ +Sef Seeley​ upgrading portals in my local area and my scanner starts doing strange things. I have gone through the help Centre at +NIA Ops​ pretty much daily without a response until tonight. 
The ingress-support@google.com email address is unmanned apparently so it looks like the help Centre option for contact is never going to work. 
I have support from both factions of this game for +NIA Ops​ to get my account back up and running properly but the only people unaware of this are +Ingress​ as their help desk is run by robots and not humans. 
I have a Samsung galaxy I9505 running android 5.0.1.
Ingress is running 1.74.0 and since this update I can't hack, I can't attack portals, I can't claim portals or deploy resonators onto empty slots but I can upgrade resonators. I can't recharge and due to this I have lost 3 guardians at 85 days. I am forced into glyph if I try to hack and still get no items yet my glyphing totals are increasing. My sojourner count is also increasing daily but I get no AP for anything I do. 
I have rolled ingress back to 1.73 and this doesn't work.
Does anyone know what I can do next to try and get this fixed?

+Fenris Wolf​ any chance of pushing this to a wider audience, this bot detection algorithm produces so many false positives (on both sides of the game) 🙌

Yes I was trying to encapsulate the idea that we learn from our failures in order to progress...not sure I if I can come up with better glyphs 🙌

So all you #ingress players might be interested with the cowboys at +EE  whose chaotic systems and inability to count has caused me to spend £95 to break a sim only contract to escape the aggravation of having to phone them whenever I use a 4G phone.

Like many +Ingress players I have been playing since beta (3 years now?) and every month I have monitored my data. I am L14 trying to earn the AP for L15 so play a fair bit.  I have always used an android phone on the 02 network and used roughly 500mb of data in order to play ingress:  excluding when +NIA Ops had the unfortunate incident of removing data compression from the scanner, but this is all in the past ;-)

So last year I joined +EE  and have included screenshots from the time showing the chaos that started immediately when I started to use the unreliable and miscounting network.  Ignoring the 3 days when there were full network outages without even an apology the big problem is the random cutting off of the data and the really horrible customer support. To be fair to the customer support people they do not seem to have any idea what is going on as apparently they cant see the data usages on the account.

That said, "Martin" does need singling out for his utterly priggish behaviour claiming he burns 700 meg in 30 minutes and no one else had any problems with the 4G counters so I was imagining it (http://community.ee.co.uk/t5/My-Bill/Data-counter-shows-DOUBLE-usage/td-p/179399 discussion on their forums). I suggest "Martin" consider his career choice as a customer support engineer because the one thing you don't tell an angry customer who considers  themselves a domain expert is that the problem has been in their head for the last 6 months.  When I came to cancel it turned out my average usage was 750mb (helpfully informed by the exit department), however the months I used 4G phones it magically became far greater than 2GB which is a problem with a 1GB limit.  

#Ingress players with limited plans all monitor our data religiously and It appears to me that EE not only don't care their counters are not working they appear blasé and relaxed about charging for data they are not delivering.  In my experience this was only an issue with EE 4G and I experienced it both on an Nexus 5 and an Nexus 6.  I used 3G for roughly half of the 6 months (on a Nexus 4) and there was no problem at all with 3G data metering.

The moral of this story is that if anyone is serious about playing #Ingress I would recommend staying well clear of these unhelpful chaotic charlatans , their incompetent infrastructure & systems has impacted upon my ability to play the game and thus had a real impact on the game.  I find myself now carrying a "Three" MiFi device for those moments when the EE network suddenly decides I am out of data or its going to have a full data outage for a few hours.

We only have 3 phones to pull from EE and really afford to pay a further £95 to remove my wife's phone (who has less trouble because she uses a 3G moto G), but as my sons phone is PAYG it is gone already.  I'm sure I can persuade my extended family to move over the coming months and I would suggest if you play Ingress and are with EE you monitor your usage, because if your experience is like mine you are paying for data you are not using.

As others have mentioned the decor is.....basic however it is imo a great pub with a commitment to providing a wide selection of local and regional ales that change on a regular basis. Also a wide selection of "craft" lager if that is your thing. At christmas you can also get the christmas bap (if you are quick), which has to be seen to be believed.

Nice park with nice views, and areas for the children to play. It is quite steep in parts if you are planning to walk around it, and if your planning on wandering into Corngreaves nature reserve bring wellingtons ;-)
