    Also, to prevent some redundancy. This was also posted on reddit yesterday:

    Just wanted to provide this as a reference.

    Spoofing should never be seen as faction specific - if anything, this is the "third faction" where you have people who will act in bad faith for the overall gameplay.

  • Thank you @Azhreia and @VAIN for your always insightful, informative posts regarding these issues.

    I wish there was a more efficient way to report spoofers in all of NIA's apps. The ingame method is tedious and is not good when you have 10+ different spoofers a day that you are trying to report (Mainly PokeGO but the process is the same in Ingress). I miss the days when you could go to the Ingress website and view to see if your ticket is in process or was completed.

    Yeah for real, I had my hands tied by only being able to do one report over the July 4th weekend for the large field spoofed up over Idaho by 5+ accounts. The first report didn't close until this Wednesday so I was unable to use support at all until it closed.

    What's worked for me in the past: Visit using an "incognito" or "private" browser window. When done submitting the report, close the window, and open a new window for the next report.

    With what happened in Idaho those got taken care of pretty fast. Those 5 accounts were removed quikly but the restoration of portals needed people at the office so they couldn't reset portals till they got back in. Those accounts were elevated pretty fast.

    Wasn't sure what the situation on ground was there since I was only watching it happen remotely. Good to know it was dealt with quickly, but it sucks that people couldn't play during the long weekend if they had plans to

    We deal with this at every reset in AM03-GOLF-00 (yes our anchor is spoofed this often). Spoofing has become a viable tactic to our opposing faction. They go out of their way to intentionally clog lanes hours before a reset preventing our links from being restored. Yet our time, effort, keys become null/void due to a link “prioritizing” loophole.
