    But when it's in a little town, with one or two player living nearby but not in it, it's impossible to clean everything in a reasonable amount of time. So they neutralize portal when they are close to them (when they travel or have something to do in the town) or need to pass a link trough it. But it grow back and spread even more.

    For now the only solution I see is capture all portals one and for all and never let them down.

    Generally speaking Machina Portals won't always reappear until the next Septicycle.

    At least this is my experience.

    This leaves plenty of time to formulate a plan that is time efficient

    It's a ****-a-mole game. Go k|ll all the red stuff, make it all your faction, and you get a week of rest for that area, before it starts turning red again. You can alternatively keep those areas portals charged, to further keep it from turning red and blocking you. But sooner or later, the sheer amount of keys in your inventory will make that nearly worthless because then you can't play because you have a few hundred keys you don't need, but if you don't keep it recharged, its a hike back out to the back of that park, or the two portals some pogo mofo made along mile 6 of some trail, because it backs up to their backyard, ect.

    Depends on box. My box the only really troublesome spots are college campuses and parks. Otherwise unless it's on a big link it gets dealt with fairly quickly.

  • The inactive portals can be single portals in inaccessible areas that spread links across heavily used/fielded areas. So its not just impacting areas that are inactive.

    I'm enjoying the machina portals. It gives me more to do and easy ap. If there are blockers then take them down. It's no different just because it's red. If you don't like driving and playing Ingress then don't. It's not supposed to be a driving game anyway. They are working like they are supposed to. Inaccessible portals just add another element to the game. It's always been a part of the game to enjoy. Niantic knows what they are doing. Embrace it.

    There are only one thing to do to make Niantic listen. And that is money. Cancel your C.O.R.E subscription and don't buy from the store until the way machina works has changed to better.

    I would love to come to local places to burst machina portals and microfield with their resources.

    But right now it for out of hand for Niantic, and that is really sad.

    For me the red faction is elusive. Because I control all the portals in my area I have to travel to find it. Though for the first time ever a red link prevented me making a link recently. But overall, and as a player with no real competition, I wish it was more active, and that there was a way to trigger it. I leave large groups of portals unclaimed in hopes of an infection.

    A big issue I'm seeing is portals are levelling up and healing despite failing to link. It's causing hard hike and walk portals to start spraying links out long distances

  • Red faction is a great addition to the game, but it does need to not just take over everything like it is currently doing. Some amount of red spreading then largely decaying after some time is needed.

  • Still no word from @NianticBrian isn't it... It's a hidden agenda so i might stop playing when this dumb thing is done.
