NiaHope @NianticBrian remove Overclock from Ingress Prime and we get somthing else. Lots of agent dont like it and dont use Overclock.
I got 58 items in 30 seconds, without a fracker. I'd like to keep it.
Ironic that Niantic first increased hack times, then gave us a way to do 4 hacks at once.
I still can't figure it out how to enable overclock. So i got a message that i need more scans. I do more scans,upload them and...i have to do more,again
Wash, rinse, repeat...
Overclock is currently the best method to tackle cheating.
It is at the moment optional to use, and if you watch the AWE 2023 presentation by the Ingress team, you'll know that a tonne of work went into it, after it was short listed from a myriad of other ideas were tested internally utilizing VPS.
It is still a very new feature, with a number of bugs.
To say to get rid of it, is to incite cheating.
Recommend, get used to it, and say NO to cheating
How does it tackle cheating? 🤔
Most of the Agents dont like Overclock and not use it.
Here in Sweden the most of agent say Overclock are bad and we not use Overclock only test and see what are Overclock.
Most agents IN YOUR AREA. That doesn't necessarily mean the same across the world.
Why to remove something that no one is forced to use?
It has bugs. As IT folks and Saturday Night Live will tell you "It's not yet ready for prime time."
That's what is being yelled at in frustration.
I still don't have a clue how it works but to remove it because you don't use it is kinda selfish. I've tried to figure out how it works but it's so confusing it's not worth my time. But others have figured out it so let them have their fun.
Better we get somthing new for all scans not bad Overclock.
Again, it is still very new, with some bugs.
Overclock is fantastic.
If people don’t want to use it they don’t have to. Doesn’t mean it should be removed entirely though due to a few naysayers.
I think they have to be enabled in some app or other site?
Well, its not available for ALL agents. Only those who have VPS activated portals near them. So that's a problem in itself. There are portals with 50+ scans on them and still not activated as VPS.
Also helps if Niantic would actually QA their new features before releasing them full of bugs. But from what I understand they really don't have a test environment to test such things. So they have to dump into prod.
They have a test environment, that would be us.
There's "test" environment and us. Wed like a beta test before it gets to us that has=mass numbers stress testing in not ideal setting under its belt so that when it gets to the public it has been taken through 98% of the paces needed.
Don't like it, don't use it. Like it, use it.
The Dev is done, there's no point removing it now since it can be completely ignored if you prefer.
I'm curious to know how you think this is the best way to tackle cheating?
It's not about quantity of scans. As we know quite a few people preferred scanning their feet in one place, rather than actual portal location from multiple POV and do it quality way. While VPS activation requires exactly what people did not do: quality scans. Now you get what you deserve: hundreds of bad scans and no VPS.
because majority of players will never bother with it
As I mentioned elsewhere, the topic of CV and SLAM is not new, and is well documented.
And Niantic realise that VPS usage is a MFLA mechanism.
The more people use it, can allow for an extra-dimension for gaming to deal with multi accounting as well. Another game I've played uses a similar approach to great effect.
Im from sweden, and I think oc-hacks are a very good thing for the game.
It will take some time to learn, but what doesnt?
It has some really good aspects, like for agents that fields microhcf, we need 9-15 keys to a lot of portals. Oc-hacks could be a very effective way to farm keys.
Moust agent in my area hasnt said it is a bad thing, only that it is hard to adapt to the new way of glyphhacking.
There is no GPS configuration with scanning. Why do you keep stating this? Any kind of security validation is not possible with VPS. Even Niantic states this in their devkit.
Don't forget about the dev work they did for the qcaps...tehy removed that. 😁
I do not think you know what SLAM and CV is. Or what is involved with photogrammetry.
Cool, we can ask for Overclock to be removed in 8 years once another company has bought them out.
How many keys did you get?
