If I would activate flight-mode, throw some US and XMP, stack them and deactivate flight-mode again, would that be cheating?
If I would have a mini-firewall-wifi-hotspot with me, which gives me control about bandwidth to NIA, would that be cheating?
Yes, and yes. Don't do that.
I do not...but others...
I am just not clear about this...in which ways this is against the terms?
I would say that falls under "Intentionally exploiting a bug to gain reward".
Oh blimey is burster stacking a thing again now ? Really hope not
What she said.
Yes, it is. Just like switching to 2G to stack bursters is.
Was there a time when it wasn't?
I thought they had it fixed at one point and would cause any to just fail when switching between airplane mode and data
Airplane one doesnt work but if you hotspot it works just fine. Prime lets you stack even more for some dumb reason.
Please keep describing ways to burster stack. The general community needs that knowledge. /sarcasm
The problem players would be using it anyways, and even fair play players could use accidentally in low signal areas.
Unfortunately the norm seems to be needing to blast this stuff on the forums to get a fix to be done.
My view would be that queuing bursters is fully okay and legal when the it happens because the network connection really is crappy and not because the player is actively provoking no or a bad network connection.
I always thought XMP stacking is a "defensive" method from Niantic in order to discourage players from using portals in low connectivity places.
Not like Niantic has ever said anything about that, but, why would you design the concept then? :D
In our case that guy has his own wifi-router - probably with a good configured firewall - and is using it all the time since over a year...
This really pisses me of, as not even 5 agents can protect a portal against his attacks.
