Win-trading is happened again on the FS day
A while ago, I posted two threads related to win-trading, and it happened again by a leading toxic agent and some of his/her followers.
Before reading this post, my previous two threads will be helpful in understanding what happened:
In this month, there are two FS events in South Korea while the win-trading agents participated in separate FS events:
Siheung si - https://fevgames.net/ifs/event/?e=18773
Gyeongju si - https://fevgames.net/ifs/event/?e=18764
As can be seen from the case where two Swiss agents were banned by their 'unknown' infringement, I'd like to say Niantic should watch this issue and give their response/answer/stance to us.
You can easily expect what happened on the win-trading site, but let me remind for today's meetup:
- Meet at the same time and place without any kind of public announcement or agreement. The FS events they registered are also in different sites while they met on their home city where is not related with any FS city. It's really weird for me.
- Four FS hosts strongly prohibited offline meetups while they also encouraged not to hold it as possible. @3car , an ENL host of Gyeongju-si confirmed this point.
- Of course they did - destroy and deploy to earn lots of APs in short time.
- One of RES agent (@darktempler007) confessed to cheating - GPS spoofing, but I don't think they let him/her know it's wrong.
- One of (or more) ENL and RES agents (@raysoda [email protected]) have multi account to use it as additional inventory - I have clear evidences but don't know if Niantic 'really' reviews the reports of cheating.
- The meetup negatively affects to the local community for sure, but they look like they cheat with impunity.
Well, they may claim again - "I just used a (or more) battle beacon(s) and wanted to meet my local agents regardless of faction", but the activity should be announced in public before the event as you know.
I have checked the community guideline and mentioning their real agent names does not violate any kind of Ingress community rules (ex: https://community.ingress.com/en/discussion/12552/freakyjudge-is-a-spoofer-who-really-ruines-game-in-moscow), so let me list them:
FYI, you can see what happened from here (See the logs of 05:00 UTC ~ 07:00 UTC)
