A request about portals (disliked for sure ;)
As "App feedback" is archived, i am writing again to general posts requesting something for Niantic.
First, i love their game.. is a good game who need improvement, most probably because POGO exists. In the forum we have so much critics but we dont have to forget what we are enjoying playing Ingress and we must be grateful. We are playing for free, they are getting something from us we acept for.. something like a pleasant business :)
My request (and only one sentence) that will not be well received in the forum :P
Keep the portals located in towns or cities and delete the others.
I am sure you can know if a portal is inside a town/city, just simulate a field envolving that portal and if the MUs are less than X it wont be a popular portal.
Portals outside population mostly are:
- useless for gaming but sentimental, thats why we can keep a key or maintain blue/green.
- a evil anchor. pleasant for the owner but a nightmare for agents who not live closer.
Why i am requesting that, i know its so radical.
I think it is a way to avoid a high damage done by spoofers over not easily accesed portals. As i told before, always cheaters will go before the law comes, so its very difficult to completely avoid them (i hope not so).
Other problem is to play under a BAF, permanent BAF usually have anchors outside population.
Matrioska fielding changes the game and there are not so much peoply supporting it, and i understand.
Of course there are others portals inside population with restringed access that must be removed, i am thinking about a quick and simple solution to avoid the problems most important i think we are living.
Agents, what do you think?
dont be so much cruel with disagree, jajajaja.. i will love every comment this post will receive.
