Game Latency / Lag is back in a BIG way
Game latency never really went away, but it became manageable or a period of time. HOWEVER, over the last couple of weeks, latency has made gameplay pretty unenjoyable. All the usual symptoms:
- Stuck deploying
- Stuck hacking
- Stuck linking
- Stuck installing mod
And now a few more:
- Full list of link opportunities don't show up when link is selected
- Portals simply don't show on the map, yet show the links and fields hanging off them.
- Random ghost links and fields appear in the scanner that cross other fields and links.
This is also pretty unfair to anyone who has used a paid item like an Apex as Agents can't use them in the way they're intended to be used because the game is defective.
None the less, Lag is back in a BIG f*&%ing way and I would love for Niantic to actually address the issue as opposed to whatever they've done in the past
