Nerffing big fields
Here's a mechanic I want to see. For any field with a link over 25km that lasts for the current cycle plus 1 full scoring cycle, it loses any link that is over 25km. So that's like 2+ weeks max. Can change to 10/50/100 km for mu scored, so it identifies urban/rural/water large field.
Let's face it. With the player base as is, you know what fields never die and the board is relatively static. And there's a reason those fields and links last that long
Everyone wins. Everyone get a shot to make the field again. Cheaters get to rethrow for mu. Underdogs get a chance to block. People perma covered or being griefed can actually throw a field. The regular players get a better changing battlefield and more mu/ap. Scoring will be more competitive. Strategy will come more into play. Niantic wins as there's less people complaining and more people moving and playing.....maybe.
