Scout Controller hasn’t been granted, even though it should have been
in Report a Bug
Since two weeks I’ve been experiencing the same problem. Even though I was the first person to scan a portal in this cycle, I don’t receive the SC-point on portals with more than one scan already registered.
In the pictures below, the scans in this cycle are mine, but the SC is the Agent that scanned it before me. Thus I haven’t received anything for the scanning.
Scout Controller is not per cycle, but per 30 days. You'll need to upload more scans to a portal than everyone else within the last 30 days. With the example of the first portal, you'll need to upload at least 14 scans, not just two as you did.
Someone said something about a cycle and I just ran with it.
So basically if I'm the first in the timespan of a month a upload a scan, the amout of scans already registered is still irrelavant, right?
Yes, however you don't know how long ago the last scan was until you upload one. Only then will the Scout Controller display update, it doesn't decay automatically. The Cycle stuff is for the Portal Scan Meter that schedules a Battle Beacon at the end of the cycle (7 scans within a cycle needed) or deploys a Portal Fracker instantly (13 scans within a cycle needed).
