Update on Game Latency, Missing Wayspots, and the Roadmap

    Experiencing atrocious game lag using Ingress Version 2.92, would rather play Kirby Star Allies using Nintendo Switch. Just wake me up when the issue has been fixed.

    Wi-Fi is good and yet, my ability to charge is…not an ability. Y’all make this game so frustrating when you can’t defend portals as advertised. Please roll back whatever you did over a year ago…

    At least this bug affects both teams. You can smash a portal and the enemy cant defend due to lag; Its a feature

    Lag is compounded lately as carriers are turning down 3G in the transition to 5G. I basically cant play during the day, except with Wifi.

    Ingress is not good at dealing with poor signal. It purposely (for security) logs you out, but doesnt tell you, so you can see the map, but not do actions. You can recover by going into settings and logout and in again, or restart the scanner. Which is painful when signal is low.

    Low signal also leads to speed lock, as you move around but the location is sent to the server sporadically.

    When ingress is playable but laggy, I've noticed speedtest says I have download speeds of about 3 mbps, but upload speed of 0.08 mbps. ingress mostly needs download speed for the portals, but actions require a little bit of upload speed.

    I play around and against Niantic, so I'm sure they are aware of the lag issues

    Posting this for context.

    Niantic Lightship is slow, this is harming not only Ingress but other products too.

    For comparison, Diablo 3 (Immortal) launched last week for mobile, this is running at 60FPS on my Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra Exynos 2100.

    This is a huge game that pulls every possible resource that our little mobile computers can muster. There is more than 10x of this happening without lag in that game. And the device not overheating

    Why is it then that with the rendering lag that some people have in Ingress, plus the network lag that is only apparent in Niantic Lightship is still not a critical thing for the Niantic Lightship Dev team to sort out?
