Able to recharge in drone view.

See the video I can recharge portals when viewing the drone. Just not the portal the drone is on.

    Previous bug report about possibility to recharge a portal with a drone if there's a key from that portal, was closed as "working as intended". So I guess now they have to disable recharge at all in dronenet screen LOL.

    Which is stupid. I should be able to recharge whatever portal from whatever view, if I have a key. Just remove that silly constraint for a portal under the drone and let it work as it naturally would - rechargeable if have a key.

    Yes, if you have the key you should be able to recharge it anywhere. But, its probably safer (or easier) to just disable it on drone view to avoid a bug that allow to recharge any portal, even with no key.

    Just came to the forum today to enquire about exactly this question :D seems a strange feature/bug

  • Why not you have to transfer XM to your drone to charge a portal?

  • Also finding this weird. Isn't this a valid defence against your drone being returned should the portal become attacked?

    It is. Something just seems to be wrong with Niantic's UX designer.
