Multi accounts and destructive actions in the game.

I would like to draw your attention to the problem with the @Moonbl agent in my city. He plays with several accounts @MrTonny, @MrAntonny, @Utilyzers, @Annaon, @olgalove. I will provide evidence of my allegations, screenshots, videos, as well as links to portals, so you can be sure of this. These actions have been preventing normal gameplay in our region, Obninsk city, for quite a long time. We reported it many times, but so far nothing has been done. We only receive a standard answer from Niantic: #7808592 #7595835 #7567627 #7808592 #7804914 #7509948 #7348237 #7348193 #7351482

The following facts should be considered for thorough investigation of the case:

  1. None of the auxiliary accounts have ever captured the portal.These accounts' resonators and mods are only detected in @Moonbl's portals: @MrTonny, @MrAntonny, @Utilyzers, @Annaon, @olgalove
  2. No one has ever seen these players. For all the time that I play and which other players play, no one has seen them
  3. Only Moonbl's actions are detected by logs, as additional accounts are only used for portal upgrading and mods deploying, for attention to them they have also never said anything in XF COMM
  4. There are no agents @MrTonny, @MrAntonny, @Utilyzers, @Annaon, @olgalove in any chat, not in com chat. These are ghosts, but playing with enviable constancy.


Example No. 1.

Here is an example video of how this happens https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Ofv8fXjsybl9v8PaowjERPGtQ_Ynlpbu

I want to draw your attention to the fact that the resonators were not put up right away, because if it took time to leave one account and enter another.


Example No. 2

Time 17:43 05/20/2020 UTC+3 on the intel map the movement route @Moonbl is clearly visible in the portal there are two shields

After three hours (20:27 05/20/2020 UTC+3), the new route emerges. Again the route of movement @Moonbl but now two more shields are deployed but its @MrTonny who deployed them. There are many such examples.

Example No. 3

An example of the portals that are located in the closed territory of the Khantsman-NMG chemical plant https://huntsman-nmg.com/ Kievskoye sh., 110 km, Obninsk, Kaluga region, 249032

You can look at google maps: https://www.google.ru/maps/@55.0570074,36.6202293,3a,75y,57.4h,71.63t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1snNIM6a0FzN2fdzZOjt_gXg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

This is a restricted access area, admission is only by passes. I can assume that one person works there and passed. But 4 people at once is too unbelievable. Always together. At the same time, there is only one active player @Moonbl

  • time 8:36 (video 0:33) “Беседочка” all resonators @Moonbl
  • time 8:40 (video 4:34) “Беседочка” put down @MrTonny, @Annaon, @olgalove
  • time 8:41 (video 5:00) on the IITC map, only one player @Moonbl

Full video can be seen here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1IKhl5pDYzaCrg6msdWX2gJMYcQBwJCLj/view?usp=sharing

Perhaps you will say that it is perfectly acceptable that 4 people work there. I note that there are no tracks from players on the intel map, anywhere. And one more argument, the image shows that there are portals along the road, so here they are all 8 levels and there are the same @MrTonny, @Annaon, @olgalove, @Moonbl,  It is very strange that  that all of these "players" are active at the restricted access area at the same time, and after worktime they go home via the same route to the other side of the city.

There is also a corrupted action pattern regarding Portal Edits and Portal photos addition exploited by @Moobl for preventing normal gameplay.


Destructive actions

Portals were created in the closed territory that did not correspond to the real location. I have previously reported these issues, and my complaints were satisfied:

  1. https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/discussion/3458/memorial-plaque-to-ushakov#latest
  2. https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/discussion/3489/bust-of-tikhonov#latest

I'd like to note. These portals have been deleted.


And here are other topics of @Moonbl activity damaging the Portal Network:

  1. https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/discussion/4267/photo-added-to-wrong-please-remove#latest
  2. https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/discussion/4266/photo-added-to-wrong-please-remove#latest
  3. https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/discussion/4514/photo-added-to-wrong-please-remove#latest

 A brief description of these three topics above:

  1. Agent @Moonbl takes a photo or copies an image from one portal and adds it to another portal.
  2. After the images are accepted, he makes the fake image the main one by upvoting it with multi-accounts.
  3. The Location Edit to the fake photo location is submitted.
  4. The ENL favorite portals are moved from correct locations, so ENL players lose the portals accessibility


But that is not all. After the deletion of the portals in a restricted access area, @Moonbl submits fake portals again and again. New portals are accepted and they are again at level 8 and again their actual location:

  1. https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/discussion/4419/duplicate-portal-memorial-plaque-to-ushakov#latest
  2. https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/discussion/4587/fake-wayspot-needs-removal#latest


Total:

  • Agent @Moonbl uses multi-accounts @MrTonny, @MrAntonny, @Utilyzers, @Annaon, @olgalove.
  • Creates fake portals
  • Moves portals by mocking images and submitting false portal edits.

All these actions are deteriorate the gameplay in Obninsk. Many players seeing such injustices stop playing. And I know several players who say there is no point opposing dishonest players. Such actions ruin the entire gameplay.

Please take action towards the players and his auxiliary accounts.

    I want to add that whatever concrete evidence we provide rule breakers are always on the winning side.

  • I agree with him, Moonbl is a cheater.

    The Local Res in my city apparently like to use 2 phone- 2 accounts, one for Playing 1 used for a mule account as I’ve seen several players blatantly do this with no regards to the TOS. It’s unfair because I watched as I claimed portals 2 of these agents came behind my trail of portals in a park area, one having a phone in each hand firing xmps from both accounts, and I’m guessing the other agent with his phones was possibly doing the same, but was dropping capsules that most likely held mods and more weapons. Not very sportsmanlike in my book!! What can you do?? Niantic doesn’t seem to do anything when a report is made... O’well

    In my city there are accounts that appear only on 1 portal of a certain agent. Why aren’t such accounts automatically banned by the Niantic? It is clear to everyone that if for months an account 90% of the time appears only on 1 portal, then this is a bag of another agent.

  • theimmctheimmc ✭✭✭

    There was once Niantic did just that and a number of legitimate players got banned. Some players are not very active or interested in the game, and only play when they're with their spouse / parents / significant other. A number of those got flagged by some algorithm and were banned.

    FWIW, if I ask someone to take out their phone and upgrade a portal for me, I think it's legit. But I wouldn't do it if they hand me their phone and ask me to go ahead and do it myself.

    How does one go about reporting these types of tactics? Is it just through the helpshift page?

    We have a local'ish enl player who will take down our fields, then use a newly created res account to send "friendly" blockers and fields, knowing it will take precious gear to rebuild the layered fields. The res faction has been very dominant lately, score wise, so this has been his tactic lately to keep fields down. Taking down fields over and over is one thing, kinda how the game works to some degree, whether it's a single field or a stack of 17. Using multiple accounts to prevent rebuilds, well....

    We have reported this, several times (via helpshift). We have seen him in his car, alone, playing with up to three accounts (two ENL, one RES).

    There is no one we can reach out to? The trusted members are for spoofing only? I'd say this type of play is more damaging than spoofing. A few more weeks of this and I'll just walk from the game, it's truly become unenjoyable tp play in this area.

  • mortuusmortuus ✭✭✭✭✭

    Try report all the ingame nicks he is using to support, provide info and let them investigate. not much else u can do.

  • PerringaidenPerringaiden ✭✭✭✭✭

    Keep reporting it through the Support site.

    Eventually, the player may make a mistake and reveal themselves, and Niantic will act. Or the weight of "maybe" reports from different people will make them choose to act.

  • We'll keep trying, but I really don't have patience for this, personally. I can sit in my living room playing PS4 without these sorts of bad characters, lol. I'll glady do that versus running all over town rebuilding our fields and running out of the little decent gear I have. Or go geocaching and see cool stuff and just deal with bad drivers on the streets, hahaha

    I hope Niantic soon listen on feedback when agents send in about agent use the account for cheating with more items when agent run Ingress self. Now Niantic do nothing when lots of agents can easy start lots of accouts.

    hm, so iitc is legit now ? naming and shaming is legit now. following other players is legal now ? players should not do cops. most of things in original post is documentation of ToS violation of person who collected this data.
