Prime performance issues during September FS
We organised an IFS last weekend and during check-in at the end of the event we were swamped by complaints of people who had been doing banner missions on Prime and but had trouble completing them because of very poor performance of Prime. Even from players who regularly use Prime with no trouble experienced this. We also received similar reports from the other FS around the country (NL) who happened to be running the same schedule as we were (13:00-15:00 CEST FS event).
I've been searching the forums here and found one complaint from the UK too, but otherwise not much else.
So I was wondering, did we just have bad luck to have performance issues during that period or is there some larger issue hiding here? Many of the agents had switched to Prime during this FS to get used to it before the cut-off at the end of the month but those who could reverted back to Redacted because of this and then had very few problems.
Anybody else share this experience of Prime performance issues but not on redacted during the more popular IFS time windows and maybe more importantly, does Niantic know about it?
