Recharging portals keeps locking up. Whats the deal? Happens to everyone at the same time.
same when deploy resonators, sometimes lag 30 sec if not more and nothing happens its stuck...
Hope Niantic soon spend lots of money and time to speed up servers. @NianticCasey @NianticBrian
You mean it is get the sever lag an potato the post are about?
I dont think ping make the bad sever lag and slow sever.
A lot of people have complained about a lack of communication from Niantic on these forums and observed how Brian is more active on Twitter than on here. Probably one of those reasons is because his notifications are a long list from one person on these forums who tags him in nearly every post, no matter how trivial or incoherent. Sadly, it wouldn't be a reach to imagine how many important issues were missed from people who were much more selective in tagging the mods.
To be absolutely fair though, Brian isn't a Community Manager, and for lack of better words, it's "not his job" to respond to agents inquiries. Twitter is his private channel where he can post things that doesn't have any relation to Ingress, so it makes sense that one is more relaxed there.
But still, pinging someone in every damm post or comment is uncalled for, especially if the post itself doesn't need the attention of Niantic anyway.
True, he's not, but he and other mods fill some of that vacuum here and there. I just wonder how many things that might have gotten a response were missed because of being bombarded with notifications from one person.
1. Brian Rose should not be using his personal Twitter account to communicate about Ingress in his capacity as a Niantic employee and all the inside knowledge that entails. That's simply a matter of professionalism. No one should have to wade through or follow his personal feed to find "official" commentary.
2. Niantic employees are welcome to stand up for themselves if they feel like they're being pinged too frequently. If the employees do feel that they're being pinged too frequently, then perhaps that's a sign that they need to consider the state of their product. After all, the vast, vast majority of apps and websites I use, I don't care one iota what the developers and companies have to say, because they acceptably get the job done or provide entertainment. Ingress, on the other hand, well… I'd really like to know why COMM is still broken, to put it politely and mildly, and to pick one of many outstanding issues.
Sometimes I wish there was less forum potato
They must update to speed up the community.
Aaaand there they go locking up again
Fully agree. It dilutes the message. I have complained many times about this. (Not just aimed at any one Niantic employee).
Posting on Twitter, Reddit or whatever social media platform you happen to use means your player base has to scour multiple locations for news. Some of us are not interested in being part of social media platform X.
Niantic have a forum, use it.
If they have to put stuff on other platforms, it should be carbon copy of what's been posted here first.
And the Now Tab was borked most of the weekend too. Just portals owned. I captured 200+ portals Sunday morning and my total portals owned only went up by 120 ish. Last night I went to bed with 170 portals owned and woke up with 270 this morning. Magical! Poor servers are soo stressed in various ways that different things fail to work on a consistent basis.
Went to a park this morning, and capped over 100 portals, deployed 1,000 resonators. Had a few lockups where I was unable to deploy resonators, waiting 30 seconds cleared it up twice, had to restart my client more than once while using an Apex due to the client/server communication not working well. Sad thing, is I wasn't even really fielding, and the thing still locked up. meh
We've gone from baked to mashed.
Wasted an apex and two battle beacons this morning due to server issues. Literally just put them both on and then the first phase of the battle beacons started, tried destroying but it took ages for any actions to happen and then it just stopped. Tried to restart and black screen. 15 minutes later manage to get back in, one battle beacon was finished and the other had about 15 seconds left on it. Waste of time and money if the games aren't going to work, as a paying customer (CORE Subscription) Niantic must reimburse those lost items or the equivalent in CMU in instances where its their product stuffing things up.
No wonder people are rating the game lowly and unsubscribing in droves!
ah yes, losing more portals to lockups this morning
we had 3 maintenance recently, why doesnt the game feel more stable and faster ? its still lag when do certain ingame actions i see no difference.
Its been since that oddball like 2 hours of downtime 1.5 weeks ago. I see lags when hacking multiple portals, trying to deploy on portals. Even with attempting to place in the July contest, I get frustrated and say F it quite a bit more than I used to with all of Prime's "quirks".
Now it's full on server lagg. And it really shouldn't be happening.
Unless agents being more active (warmer weather, more vaxxed people, lessened restrictions, and a contest) is beating the tar outta those poor servers? Even so, the server load increase should be met with an increase of resources.
Same here every time i play and deploya it lags same with hack and recharge. Hope Niantic can resolve it ever.
Yeah laggy yesterday, can't defend, locks up. Flicking to alerts, get black screen after a few back n forths so can't easily select portals to charge.
Pinging Niantic employees when the servers are lagging seems sensible.
Pinging every message, no.
Niantic employees are also welcome to defend themselves and say "please stop Pinging" or give us a list of who we should ping for which issues.
Meanwhile we get a new avatar that's a direct rip from Bladerunner.
Can we get a new product manager?
Hope @NianticBrian and @NianticThia can help us get cool sound when we click on screen. Same foture the Niantic van have. I love the desig.
