Schön geschrieben, leider verlorene Liebesmüh da Niantic den Spielern einfach nicht zuhört.

So sad :-(

Improving how spoofing is handled at anomalies - An open letter to NIA OPS from Ingress players:

TL;DR: Niantic’s anti-spoofer support during #ViaLux 1 was insufficient to prevent cheaters affecting the outcome of anomalies, and improvements are required.

Many players were pleased to discover that fielding operations would form a part of the #ViaLux anomaly series via “Special Field Operations“. For many, fielding is the ultimate thrill in this exciting game, and it requires commitment, skill and tenacity to succeed. Sadly in several cases, agent actions at SFO and anomaly sites were thwarted by cheaters. Unfortunately, despite Niantic’s efforts, the spoofer epidemic is far from solved. There is a need to review how Niantic handles these issues in order to maintain an honest and competitive game.

The prevalence of spoofing is having a severely negative effect on community engagement. Agents from both factions, in each and every region of the world, no longer wish to participate in Ingress related events (either officially sponsored or player-run). The evidence of this is in the attendance numbers for Via Lux which both Factions acknowledge is lower than the previous Anomalies held in 2016. Why should we continue to play only to have our efforts countered by invisible players? Morale is lowered as players feel there is no benefit to taking actions in the game. This isn’t a new problem, this is a problem that has existed since 2012. Yet even the most basic ways of mitigating these actions, especially during an Anomaly, by rolling back spoofer actions has not been implemented in recent years.

Niantic, you have stated numerous times that this behavior is in violation of the Ingress Terms of Service and in violation of the spirit of the game. We, the players, ask that you devote additional effort and resources necessary to urgently put an end to the practice of spoofing. Your inability to make a perceived dent in the problem gives the impression that spoofing/cheating isn’t a priority for you. Your inaction or the perception of inaction coming from you also increases cross faction tensions as issues remain unresolved. To make matters worse, your customer service is abysmal. Your company is dependant on its customers, the players, for a source of revenue. Yet support tickets go unanswered or closed as soon as they’re opened. No other customer oriented company operates this way, except maybe Google. You are no longer part of Google. As a business which now has paying customers, we hold you to higher standards of support and responsiveness.

Our communication with Niantic during the first weekend in #ViaLux

As usual, POC nominated Intel operators from each site to join a channel where their concerns could be escalated to Niantic Ops via intermediary community managers. Unfortunately for many, this link was not direct or effective enough and spoofers affected anomaly fielding at anomaly sites and special field op locations. Several of these spoofers are still not banned despite multiple reports by both factions. NIA OPS reported that there was nothing unusual about the accounts. In Venezuela, field space was totally controlled by spoofers and RES and ENL agents said they will no longer be spending money travelling only to have their efforts thwarted by cheaters.

Names that had been reported weeks and months before the Anomaly as being spoofers directly affected the Anomalies through spoofing. There is a need for a more proactive approach to controlling spoofing during anomalies, to preserve the validity of site scoring. Our agents want to help and work together with Niantic to improve this issue.

We ask Niantic to improve their responsiveness to reports of spoofing during anomalies as follows:

Fast track status for designated intel operators (one per faction per site or city) for a week before the anomaly
Consider allowing factions to share plans securely in advance so Niantic is prepared for spoof field take down attempts
Pre-arranged responsive cover from NIA OPS for 48 hours before the anomaly and through the anomaly weekend to close of the last event
Review of pending tickets affecting the anomaly zone and surroundings
Niantic improve spoofer detection, or consider softbanning suspect agents during anomaly windows where there is overwhelming cross faction support to do so
Reverse the actions of cheats and spoofs of major impact that happen before and during the anomaly[-related] period, particularly in the scoring

Gezielt gegen psychische Probleme und Mobbing vorgehen?
Ach nee, lieber mal wieder ein bisschen darüber debattieren, dass man durch ein paar linke Mausklicks und das Drücken der Taste "R" und somit durch das beschießen von Pixeln mit weiteren Pixeln mit einer Waffe perfekt umgehen kann und potenzieller Amokläufer ist...

Na gut, dann muss ich wohl meinen gesamten Freundeskreis verlassen... oder noch besser: alle potenziellen Amokläufer umbringen, damit ich sicher bin.. oh, wait ^^

Ja nee, is klar!

This happens when the governments forget about the mandate invested on them by all of their people, and start ruling for a minority of powerful individuals.
