It looks like the servers are suffering a global outage and, consequently, game actions are really lagged. What's going on?
There were 2 hours of increased latency on Sun 5/9 that have since returned to normal. Thank you for your patience.
Yes. Some of our player can't sing in the game other have to wait a lot of time before a single action is done
even looking intel map i got - nia takedown in progress
Wait a few more days for Niantic to find out about this issue.
The game is fried and unplayable.
Was trying to load some unloaded keys in a locker back in. Restarted the app and now I have 4/5 of my key lockers. Also trying to drone hack with my current inventory count and it's saying my inventory is too full.
Edit: phone restart fixed it, must've been cached or something
It would be nice to get an update from someone who actually works at Niantic about these issues that happened two days in a row this weekend.
Was it the extra drone hacks?
Was it agents deploying tons of resonators and capturing portals?
Was it simply because not enough resources were allocated to the current server / cloud infrastructure?
Similar issues on back to back days at approximately the same time makes it a reoccurring issue. Was anything learned from this to prevent this issue in the future? From occurring during yet another event on the weekend?
Also in Europe - the Czech Republic - there are also problems - the action is very slow and unplayable. And I deployed APEX and completely useless !!! Unnecessarily discarded 2500 CMU !!!!!
Reach out to support, I’ve had apex’s given to me for issues like this in the past. Doesn’t completely make up for your time, but it helps..
The increased latency should be resolved. If you lost premium items during this window, please report this to our Ops team and we will restore them. You can contact our Ops team via Main Menu > Settings > REPORT PROBLEM > Contact Us > Help with Premium Items.

but no extension of the event for those that couldnt play or even sign in due to the extreme lag all weekend?
The report was sent with a link to this thread, so hopefully I will see a correction 😉
I have to agree on this. Similar things have happened before with Pokémon GO and that game often gets an extension to an event or even a small apology gift when players can’t play.
Today my Apex item was returned to my inventory. Thanks for advice.
