My stats will remain unchanged until we can all just get along. I'm taking this beyond Baltimore cross-faction relations. I'm taking this to the entire Ingress community. I will attend official Niantic events and cross-faction events, but I will not participate in the actual game.

I will not play Ingress until communities can put aside their petty differences.

The world around us is filled with good people who have been defeated by a hateful us versus them mentality. It has lead to riots, wars, and terrorism.

Ingress is a game. It's an escape from reality. Let's not let the negative aspects of our reality ooze their way into our leisurely pursuit.

#LuxAdventure   #Ingress  

There has been a mission this September to be done, an adventure to visit a lot of new unique portals. In the area of Hamburg, Germany, I´ve been in most destricts. So the journey had take me further away. So I planned to visit the castles of Ludwig II of Bavaria. On the half way down from Northern Germany, the first stop had been Fulda , a famous baroque town. Next stop Nördlingen, which is mid in the Nördlinger Ries, a meteorite impact crater formed 14.5 million years ago. In the late evening I arrived Augsburg the home of the medieval Fugger family. The next day I arrived at Hohenschwangau and visited Neuschwanstein Castle. But thousands of people wanted to have a guided tour, so I had to wait a few hours until boarding time. A good opportunity to climb up to the best view point and take some photos with the most beautiful blue sky. After beeing in Neuschwanstein Castle, I had been in a hurry to get to the Linderhof Palace, which is located some valleys away, but I managed to arrive just in time. Late in the evening I got to Salzburg in Austria renowned for its baroque architecture. The next day, the visit of Herrenchiemsee Castle was on the agenda. The Palace was to have been an equivalent for the Palace of Versailles from Louis XIV of France, the idol of Ludwig II. Unfortunately only 50 of 70 rooms are still incomplete. After having a walk on Frauenchiemsee, the neighbouring island of the Herrenchiemsee Island I drove back to Salzburg again for a second overnight stay. The next day it took me to Burghausen Castle, the longest castle complex in the world (1051m) confirmed by the Guiness World Record company. With almost 35°C in late summer, I wondered whether this would be another record. After having dinner in Neunkirchen am Brand near Nuremberg the next Hotel welcomed me in Bamberg in Upper Franconia. A large part of Bamberg is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. But after Breakfast it´s been time to drive back home. My route led me to Veste Coburg another one of Germany´s largest castles situated on a hill above the town of Coburg. The next UNESCO World Heritage Site on my list has been the Wartburg, the place where Martin Luther translated the New Testament of the Bible into German. Afterwards viviting this most famous castle of Thuringia, it´s been time to go on homewards. My tyres always did a good job, but with still remaining about 350 km to drive the front right ran flat and I had to put the emergency spare wheel on. It´s no fun at all driving for hours in the dark of the night with a maximum of 80 km/h with these type of pneu.
I hope, tomorrow I´ll have visited 1500 new unique portals this September.

Die Mission für den September stand fest: Für LuxAdventure sollten so viel wie möglich Unique Visits absolviert werden. In der Umgebung von Hamburg und fast sämtlichen Vierteln war ich schon mal. Also musste die Reise weiter weg gehen. Der Plan wurde gefasst, die Schlösser von Ludwig II, dem bayrischen Märchenkönig, zu besuchen. Auf dem halben Weg hinunter von Norddeutschland war die berühmte Barockstadt Fulda. Nächster Stop dann Nördlingen im Nördlinger Ries, einem Impaktkrater eines vor etwa 14.5 Millionen Jahren eingeschlagenen Meteoriten. Am späten Abend erreichte ich die Fugger-Stadt Augsburg. Am nächsten Tag ging es dann weiter nach Hohenschwangau um Schloß Neuschwanstein zu besichtigen. Weil dies tausende andere ebenfalls vorhatten, waren einige Stunden Zeit zur Boarding-Time meiner Führung. Eine gute Gelegenheit, zum besten Aussichtspunkt - der Marienbrücke - aufzusteigen und Fotos bei strahlend blauem Himmel vom Schloss zu schiessen. Nach der Besichtigung der Gemächer von Neuschwanstein, musste ich mich sputen, zum Schloss Linderhof zu kommen, das ein paar Täler entfernt liegt. Ich hatte es gerade pünktlich zum letzten Einlass geschafft. Spät am Abend erreichte ich endlich Salzburg die für ihre barocke Architektur bekannte Österreichische Stadt. Am nächsten Tag stand ein Besuch von Schloss Herrenchiemsee, das nach dem Vorbild vom Schloss von Versailles des Ludwig XIV (das Idol von Ludwig II), an. Leider sind 50 der 70 Räume unvollendet geblieben. Nach einem Spaziergang auf der Nachbarinsel Frauenchiemsee ging es zurück nach Salzburg für eine zweite Übernachtung. Der nächste Tag verschlug mich zur Burg zu Burghausen, der mit 1051 Metern längsten Burganlage der Welt (Laut Guiness-Buch der Rekorde die "längste Burg der Welt"). Die fast 35°C im Spätsommer waren übrigens auch rekordverdächtig. Nach einem Abendessen in Neunkirchen am Brand nördlich von Nürnberg empfing mich mein nächstes Hotel in Bamberg. Große Teile Bambergs sind Weltkulturerbe der UNESCO. Nach einem Frühstück wurde es langsam Zeit nach Hause zu fahren. Meine Route führte mich zur Veste Coburg eine der größten Höhenburgen Deutschlands auf einem Hügel 160 Meter über Coburgs Stadtzentrum. Das nächste UNESCO-Weltkulturerbe auf meiner Liste war die Wartburg, wo Martin Luther das Neue Testament der Bibel ins Deutsche übersetzt hatte. Nach dem Besuch von Thüringens berühmtester Burg, war es an der Zei, weiter heimwärts zu fahren. Meine Autoreifen haben mir bislang immer einen guten Dienst erwiesen, doch etwa 350 km entfernt von daheim hatte ich recht vorne einen Platten bekommen und leider hat man heutzutage nur noch ein Notrad dabei. Es macht echt keinen Spaß stundenlang bei dunkler Nacht mit höchstens 80 km/h auf Landstraßen vom Harz Richtung Hamburg mit einem Notrad zu fahren.
Ich denke, morgen habe ich meine 1.500 UPV im September geschafft.

NEW PORTALS EMERGE INTO THE XM NETWORK: CIRCLE K
Agents, we have received intelligence regarding new Portals emerging into the XM network. They are associated with the company Circle K, which helped sustain Agents in the Phoenix, Arizona area during the Abaddon Anomaly.

It now appears that all 4,700 Circle K locations in the U.S. are, in fact, Portals. Circle K is known publicly as the largest independent convenience-store operator in the United States. But below the surface, it may support a global network of archeologists who are pursuing an ancient Prime Artifact. It is rumored that further expansion will occur in Canada and other countries around the world.

Agents who use the Circle K app may soon be able to unlock powerful tools in their quest that can be redeemed within the Ingress Scanner or the Intel Map for Ingress items. Explore the world and happy hacking Agents!

It's been 4 days. I was told by on-site representatives that it would take up to 24 hours. When is this going to update?

Do Wit

COMM  - 
 
We are all aware of how big the spoofer issue is in +Ingress around the world, and how big the challenge is to stop them.

I would like to applaud on the work they've done to date, but with the release and massive success of Pokémon Go, Ingress has stepped much further into the limelight, which has attracted (and still is attracting) an increasing number of spoofers.

In my strong opinion, however, +Niantic's  stance on not reinstating the hard work of legit agents is destroying the game.

I'm sure I'm not the only agent who thinks this. I've noticed in my region (Australia/Oceania) that this stance has resulted in several hardcore agents retiring/quitting and the area slowly turning one-sided. The cost of doing large scale operations in Australia can be highly expensive and time consuming. For example, a trip to Uluru (aka Ayers Rock) can cost $500+ dollars in fuel alone from the nearest major city and take about 17 hours of driving.

+Niantic's  current stance, while positive, still isn't effective. The spoofers are able to jump in, do the damage (which may cost legit agents thousands of dollars), then get banned… Is this fair? No, the damage is done and it doesn't really matter if the account is banned. The other side can then jump in and take advantage of the situation.

In current times, the +Ingress  community has been able to provide sufficient evidence of obvious spoofing to +Niantic  which I'm sure has been highly useful in their investigations. This community feedback is based on a large community's collective knowledge and research and can make a strong case against suspicious accounts. If Niantic was to facilitate a procedure of receiving this information from the ingress community and using it as required, these spoofers could be dealt with in the speed required.

One example of a failed response can be seen in the Blue Mountains in Sydney, Australia. We have had an account in there for well over a week now slowly taking out every portal (most of which are 800+ days old). The first two takedowns from this account happened within 75 minutes at night between two portals that would take a highly-experienced hiker over five hours to trek during daylight hours and optimal conditions. This action is clear proof that this account is a GPS spoofer and the community reported this swiftly. However, no action has been taken by Niantic, and this spoofer still wanders around the Blue Mountains taking out difficult-to-reach portals within a few hours, portals which will take days to recover. This report has also generated XFAC interest and support as is evident in the comments, where both RES and ENL start talking about spoofers hitting guardians. The report: https://plus.google.com/108834619202169206995/posts/J37KR9Jdweq

With the introduction of Special Fielding Operations and the Via Lux Adventurer/Odyssey Badges, Niantic has shown that they want to get these elements of the game back into play. However these will not be effective if the spoofing isn't stopped, especially the SFOs. The SFOs will be highly subjected to spoofing, not only during the operation, but the months before hand. Highly strategic links can be spoofed up months in advance and will affect the outcome on the SFO, which in turn will affect the outcome of an anomaly. If anomalies become more subjected to spoofers, agents will stop coming and the true essence of the game will be lost. I ask to remove SFOs (despite how fun they are) from anomalies until the spoofer issue is dealt with.

In my strong opinion, banning isn't enough to stop (or even to slow down) the influx of spoofers. If +Niantic's  stance was changed to include reinstating the conditions before the spoofing, the spoofers’ efforts would have zero effect and spoofing will have little-to-no benefit in these kinds of games.

I understand this will be a challenge to implement, but I'm sure that it would be a major step in the right direction.

+Duncan Lindley No but they are funding trips to go out and get stronger pokemon in locations far outside their own because their rural gyms are all being captured by the same L30+ person with 15+ Dragonites/Snorlaxes and having no natural way of defeating them.

We can sit down and talk about game breaking mechanics for ages, but the only time Ingress was never plagued with spoofing issues was when the game was in still closed invitation beta. Ever since the game opened up for all the means for making accounts is all too easy for these people and no matter how much you try to ban them they will be back with an alt in no time.

Meanwhile Niantic develops more automatic means of detecting cheaters and ultimately cannot tell the true difference between a legit player or a legitimate cheater half the time. Best of all their service when it comes to unbanning is anything but responsive or fast. You will be waiting for weeks if not months for a reply, by then you either made a new account and started playing again or you would have lost interest/given up hope on hearing back.

You can hope for Niantic to find some alternate way, you can hope they are on your side. At the end of the day nothing changes as the situation only gets worse for everyone who still bothers to play anymore..

This control field lasted longer than I imagined. At last, it's time to say goodbye. I don't think I'll be able to ever top it.

Don't worry about the circle k stuff. This is all Google shows me. It's quite a long list and not one open.

Last year. if you bought a group of items, your receipt for the purchase would have a pass code for gear. Depending on what items you bought, the passcodes would be for different items.

+lenny vie !!_EINDHOVEN_!! Verification was not required for existing players.
When it was added the inventory limit was only imposed on new accounts that did not verify.
So, in theory, it stopped spoofers creating new accounts, but never had any chance of killing off existing bot/spoof accounts
