Prime update 2.34 may be the last straw
This week, we are expecting to have the 2.34 update.
However, this update, in my opinion, is the most CRITICAL to succeed.
With no Redacted, Niantic have now got zero reasons why a litany of issues cannot be resolved in 2.34.
Not since Operation Bow String, arguably the very first Anomaly, 7 years ago, that ingress has been able to playable for so many.
This outcome was 100% predictable.
I wish people would play Ingress over POGO and WU, as it is a much better game, on paper, but from the myriad of threads and discussions with my own city playerbase, update 2.34, should it fail, may see at least half of the remaining player base since Redacted was turned off, will leave.
@NianticBrian please make sure that the bugs and issues of the last 12 months, and the recent catastrophe that is Umbra Anomaly, are fixed in 2.34
