How can we get better and prompter help from NIA with regards to large fields being spoofed?
For some months our cell NR02-HOTEL-02 has been infested with spoofers, and it pays off to spoof. As fields that have been taken down, don't count for the score anymore, and often it takes more then a week to restore portals and links.
A few times already I have asked for support of NIA for a more prompter reaction to this kind of spoofing. Both ENL and RES suffer from these just before checkpoint spoofs. We (ENL) are in close contact with RES about this subject, but there is little we can do, but wait it out until volunteers that do TR and VG duty to help us out.
And I must say, it greatly impacts our pleasure in playing the game. What are the possibilities to improve the reaction time of Niantic OPS so that spoofing does not pay off anymore?
It is highly frustrating that it still does, and a lot of it has to do with response time. Both factions in our cell suffer from this, and I can imagine we are not the only cell in the world where this kind of behaviour of spoofers takes place.
Your advice is welcome in this matter. The TR's and VG's are doing their best to help us out, but restoring strategic portals for ENL and RES should IMHO be a speedier process, so that spoofing does not pay of anymore.
