Cross-linking that shouldn't be possible

I just created two intersecting links that would not normally be possible.


This happened when I was hitting the link button repeatedly, and of course I have no malicious intent.


Will this be considered cheating in Ingress? I'm very worried.


日本語(原文)

私は先程、通常では不可能な2本が交差するリンクを作ってしまいました。

リンクボタンを連打している際に起こったことで、当然、私に悪意はありません。

これはIngressでの不正行為とされるのでしょうか?とても心配です。

    I would not worry about "cheating" here.

    Cross links should never be possible, but because of a "quirk" in how the servers go about checking for and creating links (or just simple, plain bugs in the code), there are rare circumstances where cross links happen through no fault of your own.

  • Thanks for the flag, @Zeronofu! I'll share this with the Ingress team for further investigation. We'll get back to you on this when we have an update or more information. We appreciate your patience.

    please DON'T fix this. Hartley found this years ago, and it is one of those interesting "Huh, what can we do with this?" sorts of things.

  • We've got an update on this, Agents! Looks like this is just a visual glitch. These Intersecting links should be removed when the Intel Map is updated. Thanks for your patience!
