Destruction of the portal "Арка"
On 29.11 at 15:19 +3 gmt the "Arka" portal was shot down.
This portal is located on an island with which there is no sea communication. And at the moment it is occupied exclusively by the military. There is no connection or internet. Question - how did **** get there? After the destruction, a report was immediately sent on the topic of spoofing. No answer. The portal is also neutral. Please resolve the issue and return all links and fields that were organized on this portal.

It's outrageous how much you can fight for honesty and decency in the game
Go to https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/categories/removal-appeals and request for its removal by uploading some proof
Oh, **** ... I've reported that Agent several times already (too fast movement,as example,or removing bad signal portal just in speed of wifi),but no effect.
are you talking about the portal or the player? why remove the portal? and judging by the comments below, this player has already been spotted spoofing
wow .. so there is clear evidence of his foul play. it is physically impossible to get there now. there is a war in that place now.
Looks like he likes to jump all over the world in the last few months.
I'm assuming he didn't get a ban because his spoofing hasn't been automatically detected yet by Niantic's system or because no report has been fast tracked yet. Did you report the Apka portal spoof in the app then submit a fast track report?
How shoud I understand this? Why was the offender's name removed? **** some special???
The portal. I see that you are complaining about the portal
This portal is located on an island with which there is no sea communication. And at the moment it is occupied exclusively by the military. There is no connection or internet
and I checked the satelite map for the link your provided and was not able to find such structure there. Maybe removing this portal would help solve your problem in a different angle.
Because calling out agent's name is not allowed on this community EVEN if they are confirmed to have violated Niantic ToS.
Many other players will report. Don't get me wrong. I'm just telling you that such rule exists. I'm not advocating this rule.
I'm not complaining about the portal, but about the player. And this is not a solution. we have been playing on this portal for a long time. we have many keys prepared for him. Several operations are planned using it. why delete it if it is destroyed by a method prohibited in the game? It needs to be made green again!
because as far as I see according to the satelite view of Google Maps this portal does not exist on that coordinates
Can't you see the portal on the map via satellite? And why do I see him)))
The portal location is not quite correct, but the POI does actually exist. Or at least at the time the photo was taken in Nov 2021. Since the island was bombed, it's quite possible that it is no longer standing, but that can only be confirmed with a follow-up visit.
Note the path leading to it, as well as the pier in the background of the photo. Location corresponds to the satellite photo and the portal image matches. The portal itself would just need to be moved to the right location 124m to the east.
BTW Is there a regular ferry or any way to get there when war state ends? По правилам вродь как нельзя. А то что Агентбита ник запикали - это правила форума.
of course have. that is how the lighthouse attendants got there.
You saw the word mentioned in my reply?
this portal does not exist on that coordinates
and you shall request for moving it to the right location 45.256247, 30.204482 that is more than 130 meters away, instead of asking others why can't see something that is off two screens far.
Anyway, can modders at least research previous behaviour of ******** player(player who shot down that portal last) and give us proper response about him. No personal data. Just is he was really there to make the action?
Or we all can use hacks to appear anywhere, break portals and avoid punishment? Rules are not rules if there are such exclusions, you know.
If it was service account then it must be official why portal was cleared. Portal placing is not the reason, there are numbers of portals which location is not exact and none of them were cleared.
Thread is not about portal location! Location is another question which must, and will be, discussed in another thread. Please resolve problem with supposed hacker.
now the task is not to transfer, but to restore justice. The portal has been destroyed by an agent using illegal game methods. why are we now discussing the location of the portal 130 meters from its point on the game map? Why, when an inaccessible portal occupied by resistance is destroyed, should it be restored the next day with all fields and links? I would like to hear a competent answer to my questions. 1. Has Agent ***** been removed for spoofing? 2. When will our portal be green again?
@GenKireev The blue account is banned, however, the green account that held that portal originally is also banned for spoofing, so this portal cannot be reset back to green.
but to restore justice
that didn't age too well...
More likely a case of it was captured legitimately at least once then spoofed back and forth. Surprised they can't just find the last unbanned account that touched it to restore it to.
Thanks for the competent answer! But it is not clear why we suffer in the end? We were handed over about 10 keys to this portal a long time ago. We have been breeding them for almost a year. And they just started playing on it and they immediately destroy it. It's really unfair. I think, on the contrary, it was necessary to restore it in order to show the spoofers that their actions are useless ....
Unfortunately the portal was captured by illegitimate means in the first place, so you would be taking advantage of a spoofer's actions already.
Restoring it to green would legitimise that (green) spoofer's actions. It would be seen as Niantic saying that one spoofer's actions are ok but another's are not.
Хорошо, спасибо за ответ. Конечно жаль, но...
Thanks for your valuable information.
@GenKireev For security purposes, we do not want agents calling out, naming, or accusing other agents of cheating on the forum. Please submit a ticket via in-app support with the evidence you have. One of our team members will look into it.
That said, Nobody gets special treatment around here. This applies to everyone on the forum. Also, I'll be closing this thread for future comments.
Thanks for understanding!
