It seems that there are fewer and fewer players

It seems that there are fewer and fewer players.

I'm wondering if Niantic plans to give a General Amnesty to banned players? For example, L16 agents who once avoid the TOS.

Few could reach level 16 in the game, and I think that many of them would like to return to the game.

I think that would be a pretty reasonable solution.



  • I don't find reasonable at all this suggestion to be honest.

    Getting communities to grow is nice but your suggestion would be the least helping if helping at all.

    Communities can and must grow by other means!

    We are enduring all sorts of cheaters, and adding them back up?

    I believe it's the fact that Ingress has been stale for awhile. NIA needs to add something that changes game play, to a small degree. I don't count the drone hack a game changer. That just makes it easier for people to have couch portals.

    Letting previously banned accounts back won't bring up the numbers, and those people probably moved on to cheat in other games for them to make money anyways.

    There has been zero story over the past year.

    There have been zero events in game, with covid-19 even Drone Hacks/Recharging would go a long way to stimulate players, actually playing

  • Zero story over the past year, completely ignoring the 10 month long Tessellation that had tons of story and lore.

  • GrogyanGrogyan ✭✭✭✭

    Tessalation has been over for many months and was a very bare bones story, so argument still stands.

  • GrogyanGrogyan ✭✭✭✭

    That's because it was very sporadic, something which we complained about.

    Getting a tiny bit of story every month or so, is where I meant it was very bare bones of a story

    There's been zero 'story' since 2015, and the 'story' before that was bad. What we have now is a schmozzle.

    true, it was also mostly something outside the scanner so an average player never really knew it was ongoing event...

  • I am one of them who stop playing Ingress after few months :( Impossible to buil any links or fields because of large field over my home town. Wait for Catan world explorers. I think a few players can’t stop hundreds of others from playing in it.

  • "once avoided the TOS" sounds like "once avoided to help an old woman to change the side of the street"

    -> you didnt "once avoid" the TOS, you faked from 0-16.

  • GrogyanGrogyan ✭✭✭✭

    Ingress has a lot more to offer in terms of gameplay than Catan World Explorers.

    Thats because it was a thing outside the game app. I bet you most of participants only joined after the badge announcement.

    Well, until the pandemic, you had to use the scanner to find the media. But I'm glad they didn't work development on pushing an unrelated minigame into the scanner, and instead spent all their time improving it and adding more features.

    I would be really nice to have a global challenge now though.

  • Like what? Walking arround and put resonators to empty portals. Booring... What else can we do when large field covering whole town? Play Pokemon or HPWU? Why even keep Ingres instaled on phone when you can look from intel map when field disapeard? Waiting that for months now...

  • GrogyanGrogyan ✭✭✭✭

    Can do Missions

    Hunt for unique portals

    Play a Battle Beacon

    Join a First Saturday

    Quite a fair amount actually under a perma field

    Of course, if you are in country that allows travel, you could organise to take down said field

  • GrogyanGrogyan ✭✭✭✭

    I actually don't enjoy pogo or Wizards Unite, find they are too slow paced

  • All of these kind things found all of location based games and lots of more.

    Buy a boat and row 20km to break portal or bicycle 60km and before I get back to home the the field has been rebuilt? Then someone still wonders why Ingres loses players :D

  • GrogyanGrogyan ✭✭✭✭

    Did you block said field being rebuilt?

    You know this is a strategy game?

    Have had these battles in my own city

  • GrogyanGrogyan ✭✭✭✭

    Ingress's losing players because there are no events

    There are no events because of the biggest pandemic in 100 years

  • mortuusmortuus ✭✭✭✭✭

    then its weird pokemon gets events nonstop after pandemic started ..

  • HydraulinskiHydraulinski ✭✭✭✭✭

    Fields should change, making their portals decay faster each day, to point that the owner will have to choose to let it down from one side of lost all 3.

    JukkaJuu What area are you in that your game play area is always covered. I would plan some blocking links to prevent them from rebuilding if its possible. I know its crappy when your fielded over everytime. I get real pissy when it happen to me...
