Android 11 isn't suffering the same issues.
same here, cannot use intel map, game working fine
I'm the only one who finds this answer absolutely unclear...
A group of testers who were more focused on playing than 'community representation' would probably discover issues with the game. Vanguards have their role, but it's not to actually play hard.
“If you are receiving this message, the strike is correct.”
“A small number of players may have incorrectly received a suspension message.”
Absolute BS imo.
Only the standard answer
So, it is about strike messages. If interpreting correctly:
People can receive a 'strike' when they misbehave. If so, you have to confirm reading it the scanner. But after accessing intel, the message doesn't come through in the scanner. So the intel ban stays. This message-error will be solved.
Also people received a strike by accident (related to iOS14??? It doesn't say that) And got stuck in inability to confirm they read it. For those people the strike will be removed and they will be able to access intel again.
No fun, but not as bad as it looked at first either.
But why should ios 14 cause Intel bans? Using beta on phone doesnt make u a cheater yet u are flagged and punished like one.
I play Ingress on Iphone 7 running iOS14 (sometime with my iPad Pro 10,5").
I use intel from my phone and iPad with Safari and also form my Linux Laptop with Chrome web browser.
I use sometimes IITC (on my phone) but mainly to display agent last location. To be honest it's kind of feature that miss to the regular intel.
something like this happened to android users who use a beta build last year. Android changed something that didn't work with Niantic anti-cheating system. To be fair, Niantic says it doesn't support beta OS's. Everyone who has a ban/strike all had iOS 14 which Niantic said was ready for ingress.
Exactly: Android didn't let apps read device-id anymore so ingress flagged them just like they would an emulator.
Point on "but it's not a beta" is spot on.
From IOS 14 release notes. Want to bet this was being used by Niantic for Jailbreak detection? Lmao.
Just update my cell-phone to IOS 14. than got this too
NIA keep told me I'm i'm cheating .... oh my god! IOS14 is mean cheated?
so no more ingress and other games from niantic for apple user ?
Every reply both report game issue and ban appeal told me to stop cheating or I may got banned....
It make me feel bad, cause I just use IOS14. why IOS users have been punished ? while spoofer and multi accounts are still active like butterflies in flower garden.
Since IOS 13 there is no Thai language support, cannot read Thai on Ingress anymore and then 1 year later update to IOS14 then everyone may got ban.
If you hate IOS, nice move, Niantic.
The message from Niantic in this thread, and the new message posted regarding "a small number" etc are both unbelievably poor from a PR perspective. You would think a company who has waning customers would actually want to try and not **** off those still playing... because it's often active agents who recruit new agents and welcome them into local groups. Do Niantic think their actions the last few days have encouraged that... 🤪
atm it's just ingress intel map/comms we can't use now. without the map it makes the game a lot less interesting.
"less interesting" is the least of my concerns honestly, but you're right. I'm just drone hacking now to keep my Sojourner alive.
Why is @NianticBrian replying on Twitter and not on Ingress Primes own forum ?
It has been mentioned in the past that communication fragmentation by Niantic is bad, (spreading messages across Reddit, Twitter, Forum etc etc). Pick one, or at least duplicate posts on ALL platforms.
"A small number"?
WHAT A SHAME!
I play Ingress on i-phone running iOS14
Intel and COMMs active for me after that suspend. Pinged @Jo0Lz just to test out and show my gratitude.
Comm is working for me now but not Intel.
I lost both a couple of days ago. Upgraded to iOS 14 last week.
Yeah, same for me. No intel, feel blindfolded 😅
@MrBuddy1 @AusteenPowers did you by any chance submit a ban appeal? I submitted the instant I realized that I was suspended, way before @NianticAndres posted here. Still I didn’t get any reply, though.
Interestingly, many users of iOS 14 who also use Intel/IITC never had this issue?
I haven’t done one.
I believe that those here only represents a small amount of all affected. Some might even not recognize, if they don’t access intel map.
Still, I do hope that the majority of iOS14 users are not affected by this.
I can use comms and intel now too. I submitted a ticket a few days ago.
Submitted my ban appeal 2 days ago. Got the standard mail response 5 sec later and then nothing.
