While the current Aurora challenge, also known as the recycling challenge, is disliked by many players, there's an added disincentive for Enlightened players -- I've seen at least 10 players in various chats who said that they stopped shortly after getting the bronze badge because they didn't want to risk getting stuck with a blue achievement badge on their profile.
Can someone from Niantic explain why there is so much blue on the profiles of Enlightened players?
It's frustrating to have to explain to curious family members that yes, I'm still on the Green team even though all my stats are shown in blue. "So the game is designed to encourage more Blue players?" -- direct quote from my sibling.
Please make the key icon in the portal view screen clickable so that we can drop or recycle keys straight from the portal screen. This is a useful feature of Redacted. Clicking the key icon should take us to a screen similar to the one in redacted.
When I am playing fairly actively, I can get roughly 30-45 minutes before Prime crashes on my phone. I have a fairly new Pixel 3 phone. This is a flagship phone with more than enough RAM and CPU power to run this game, yet I will always crash like clockwork every half an hour or so. I don't even need to run any other apps or do anything specific. It has crashed on me on almost every single menu or screen in the game (recharging view, inventory, portal view, linking menu, you name it).
I don't have any of these issues with Pokemon GO or Harry Potter WU. In fact, Pokemon GO for me rarely crashes on my Pixel 1 and can often go without crashing for entire update cycles. This makes playing Ingress incredibly difficult, as a lot of actions in Ingress are time sensitive. That, compounded with the fact that when the phone is running hot it can take almost a minute for the game to load back up.
I've been playing on the Prime client for a number of months now and all the other issues aside, the crashing one is the most annoying, with the load time of the game when the phone is hot being a very close second.
I got my account suspended for reasons I didn't know as I have been playing fairly according to my knowledge . I got suspension for 7 days as a part of the three strike policy .But even after the suspension I am able to log in to my account but cannot hack nor link nor field . It has been many days since my account has been suspended. Being emotionally attached to my account it felt so depressing for me . I haven't committed any violations according to my knowledge no third party apps nothing. Even reporting to ingress support has not been helpful as I am always getting the same message again and again
