The community needs help
Today after the complaint of some players and my outburst on the telegram, I decided to come here to make an appeal.
I've been a player since 2016 and what attracted me to the game was the challenge of the different ways you can choose to play.
Anyone who plays for some time will remember the various emotions we experience to climb a mega field covering several cities or all the logistics to be able to capture a strategic portal, unfortunately I believe that everyone will agree that this will not be lost over time.
Today it is even disheartening for you to join a large number of agents to create a mega field and a person on the home sofa can take down in 5 minutes, all the logistics, time and money of many involved go down the drain in minutes and very discouraging.
With the exception of the beginning of the game, I think we never had a wave of spoofer as big as we are now, the community needs help, I remember that I moderated a game in 2013 and we had more resources to stop this type of cheating than we have today at ingress almost 20 years later
We urgently need to create measures that can at least minimize this problem, I will mention a few below:
1- Create a team to help fight spoofers, this team could act as a level.
2 - Link the Ingress account to the cell phone number or IMEI, even if you do not block the use at least you would have control for an investigation, in addition to making it difficult to use the game in emulators.
3 - Prevent the sale of items within the game, with some scripts it would be easy to identify these transactions.
4 - Increase the inventory space, which could even be a paid product, even I see a huge potential that could be explored within the game to obtain sponsorships.
I see that these and other actions would help to rescue the essence of the game, bring new players into action, and keep the spirit of the game alive.
That's why I come here to make an appeal, don't let the ticket die, don't let the game lose its essence, together we are stronger. spoofer has no faction.
