Update on Game Latency, Missing Wayspots, and the Roadmap



  • K4CharelK4Charel ✭✭✭

    Did that months ago. And everytime I think about sum

  • K4CharelK4Charel ✭✭✭

    " We have a speculative fix for the intermittent lag that occurs when recharging Portals."

    Is that just for the lag when recharging or could it also address the lag when deploying Resonators, firings XMPs or hacking?...

  • K4CharelK4Charel ✭✭✭

    Never mind. Speculative fix isn't working for me 😔.


  • Jo0LzJo0Lz ✭✭✭✭✭

    Let's hope the fix will take less than the 12 months it took to investigate. ;/

    Did it again. Picked up too many capsules really quickly. 🤣. It's gotta be due to the cheaper servers. Low signal area on top of it.

    I bet if you do it enough times repeatedly you could dupe a capsule! Too cold out now to try to mess with it. Maybe next time I'm out this way I will try it again!

    Any thoughts on that @NianticBrian? What happens if we are able to duplicate a capsule? Or multiple capsules? Hope someone has some eyes on this. Could become a big problem.

    So, is it latency issues, burster stacking or can someone give me some tips on how to make all resonators go poof in one go. The portal before this was two rare shields and resonators in one poof….


  • SSSputnikSSSputnik ✭✭✭✭✭

    Yer doing it wrong.

    To defend:


    Tap the x to go back

    Hit Charge again

    It forces more refreshes. Shouldn't work like that IMHO though.

    Otherwise you risk happening what happens in the video - by the time the scanner updates, its just dead.

    Tapping in and out like that works, but still slow and you risk thumbing wrong button when you go to use a hypercube, which, usually means certain loss.

    BTW can we have slightly improved shield stickiness Niantic? The nerf sucks - even Aegis shields depart way too quickly.

  • Jo0LzJo0Lz ✭✭✭✭✭

    Yeah, that is the way to make sure you are seeing the most up to date resonator charges. Really annoying, but the same was true for the redacted scanner.

    As far as I know, the stickiness of shields increase over time; there once was an entry on the fandom wiki that stated it takes up to 48 hours for maximum stickiness; but it has since been removed.

    I do believe it’s still the case though, as freshly placed aegis are gone within seconds; whilst aegis that have been on a portal for a while are harder to remove; even with ultra strikes.

    it would be great if someone from @niantic can verify.

  • SSSputnikSSSputnik ✭✭✭✭✭

    Sounds like an urban myth to me :)

  • EvilSuperHerosEvilSuperHeros ✭✭✭✭✭

    @NianticThia Seeing how its the end of January 2022, do we have any ETA on the roadmap for the year, or even for the first part of the year?

    TBH, I am just after an update on the latency. I think we all confirmed the speculative fix wasn't working. An insight into the investigation is well overdue.

    New features are nice, but waiting 30 seconds (feels like 5 minutes) for a resonator to deploy pretty much void every other improvement.

    Surprisingly, the Kureze Effect event went with way less lag than I expected. It was chaos but I accept that if 12+ agents from both factions try to drop a res on the portal, that may cause few issues.

  • mortuusmortuus ✭✭✭✭✭

    I hope Thia soon update with lag fix

  • Jo0LzJo0Lz ✭✭✭✭✭

    I played a little on the Sunday of the event, but in my 2,5 km walk, I could only deploy like half of the portals without having to stand still and restart the game after experiencing latency. And I wasn’t even close to a city that had the nia deployed beacons.

    even the portals I could fully deploy whilst walking were deploying in slow motion.

    but it doesn’t matter. Nothing matters, the fact that I launch the game and half the game board isn’t loaded was also handled with a “speculative fix”, but nothing since then. And how long ago was that? Two years?

    this is exactly why I’ve dropped my core subscription, they won’t ever learn how to handle the player base, how to handle things on priority or even pick up something they think they fixed with their patch note stating something has a speculative fix. It’s crazy.

  • Jo0LzJo0Lz ✭✭✭✭✭

    Right now, the game is blazing fast. Deploying a portal takes seconds. What did you just do, @niantic , I suggest you do it more often.

  • After many months without being able to do it, yesterday I was able to defend a portal for more than 10 minutes in a row :-)

    Lags especially awful today around noon UTC+8

    5G full bars - CBD type area, trouble deploying and hacking. Long delays before resonators would deploy,

  • mortuusmortuus ✭✭✭✭✭

    Yeah 5g or 4g doesnt matter sadly.. any update Thia ?

    Here we are, now in late Feb and the lag issues are still not fixed.

    How long has this issue been ongoing now?

    It really is beyond a joke. Just like the previous long running comms issue was.

    I really don't blame those who have cancelled their C.O.R.E subscriptions in disgust at this ongoing (and still not fixed) issue.

    Yup, and the speculative fix didn’t work either. I was subbed for 12 months, gave it up.

    now niantic is giving away passcodes to celebrate a year of core, but you don’t get it even if you were subbed for 12 months. That’s the thanks you get; you get ignored on the forums and are forgotten when it’s time to give away stuff.

    the game has never been more stale, fields stay up indefinitely if I recharge them, no opposition left to destroy my stuff, so most days I’m just hacking to keep sojourner going.

    It’s so sad, if they would only be capable of fixing stuff and actually communicating with the players. I wish they would add something to the game to get resources and improve things. Oh wait…

    Servers getting DDOSed or what, everyones locking up recharging

  • No new portals have appeared in the game for a week. Only new pokestops are created in Pokemon Go

  • NysyrNysyr ✭✭✭

    Servers locking up 80% of gameplay today zzz

  • Jo0LzJo0Lz ✭✭✭✭✭

    Latency definitely seems to have increased. Agent profiles load errors, deploying resonators in slowmotion…

  • MoogModularMoogModular ✭✭✭✭✭

    Odd thing is those issues haven't shown up since upgrading to 2.90.1

  • Jo0LzJo0Lz ✭✭✭✭✭

    I have version 2.90.1 and experienced all these issues.

  • Jo0LzJo0Lz ✭✭✭✭✭

    Disagree? Haha ****. Someone disagrees with me having latency issues on the latest patch?
