If we had an AMA tomorrow…what would you ask?

Way back when, we had Ask Me Anything threads. The Wayfarer forums do them about once a quarter now, but it’s been a while for Ingress.

What would your top 15 (Wayfarer forums normally answer 15) questions be if we got an AMA thread suddenly drop?

    In the spirit of growing the player base:

    Why should someone pick up and play Ingress?

    The answer must be no longer than one standard elevator pitch.

  • joecainjoecain ✭✭✭✭

    What happened to the Q2 roadmap?

    Will there be a consistent release schedule in the future, or just at random?

    What is your strategy for communicating with the community? Will the forums be shut down (as niantic rarely visits them)?

    What is thia's role/responsibilities for the Ingress community and do you plan to increase this support in the future?

    what are the year 10 plans? 🤪

  • KhatreKhatre ✭✭✭✭✭

    When will we get the announced deeper xm connection and get the sophisticated action not currently undertsood ? (recurse text)

  • Jo0LzJo0Lz ✭✭✭✭✭

    How is the investigation regarding the latency going. We're coming up on 2 years of issues and during anomaly in Munich little to no latency was experienced. If it is indeed a capacity problem, when are we going to up capacity to cope with normal day to day gameplay?

    It was great a few days ago, but performance turned to **** again.

    As per some of the other topics, when are we going to prevent GPS lock on certain android devices? With the steps taken to prevent cheating (older OS'es no longer work, the CAL, etc.) how can you justify the game working with GPS lock on?

    1-Did you recieve less reports employing the CAL system?

    2-Are there any plans to extend CAL protection to the linked sites too? (not the already CAL protected portals BUT to the portals linked to those)

    3-Are you going to further extend the CAL protection on portals in order to prevent malicious maneuvres? (e.g. wayfarer abuse)

    • How can Niantic leverage the community's general willingness to see the product succeed, similar to Wayfarer but in ways specific to improving Ingress as a product and gamespace? (e.g. event coordination, more beta testing, state-of-game discussions, Trusted Reporter style program)
    • If you could revisit the choice to not rebuild the servers in 2019, would you make a different choice? How long would you need to rebuild the servers?

  • I would go 1 step further and ask what change/addition they have done over the years would they have done differently.

    • When will you remove pay2win items from inventory carousel? Community unilaterally dislikes this and we were promised Niantic would not do it in the first place.


  • I specifically want to ask about just that one big change whose impact is still being felt, rather than have them waffle on about what-ifs.

    I'm not whimsically looking for an AMA. It's useless when they don't really know the plan and many things that has previously been promised has not be implemented yet such as advanced reporting feature for C.O.R.E. members. AMA will be used to prove that "they are listening" only. Then why expecting one?

  • Do you think Ingress will ever again sync pictures with Wayfarer?

    How many agents open the scanner at least once a week?

    How many subscribers are there?

    Has linking-under-a-field increased play?

    How many missions are executed in a month? What will it take, to make it worth it, to upgrade the mission creation site? Could an intern work on it?

    Can we go back to just calling it "Ingress"?

    If Niantic ever does another Ingress roadmap, could you please beg them to include (a) updating the Mission making tool, (b) adding a drove-visited layer to Intel and scanner, and (c) putting a mission layer on the Intel map, to hide missions already done (for planning return trips to a place you like to go)?

    If Niantic is not ever going to do another roadmap, why not?

    How hard would it be to make one pro Ingress Instagram post a week?
