STOP IT with so much Crossfaction stuff!
Some crossfaction is okay - first saturdays, an event or two, mission days. But Niantic has gone WAY over the top. Everything has to be crossfaction now and I'm sick and tired of it.
Ingress is a strategy game - a battle between 2 factions. That's what we play, what we like, and what we want to play. This ill-advised attempt to turn both factions into friends and make them one big group is ruining the game.
You destroyed our scanner with the new prime graphics, now you are destroying the actual game play.
People who want to be touchy-feely, feel-good friends can go play potter or pogo. Kindly get your hands off our ingress game play and toss any more crossfaction forced events into the trash.
