Cancel Core until the Machina situation is handled
Machina is destroying the local community here, and I am sure a lot of other places. The situation is completely unreasonable, and makes it annoying to try to make fields in cities and next to impossible to cooperate with teammates to accomplish something bigger - which was a big part of the game to a lot of us, even if it wasn't important to everyone.
Niantic doesn't appear to listen or be interested at all in complaints in forum threads. Therefore, the best way that I can see to try to make something happen is to cancel our subscriptions. I love Ingress and have happily supported it since Core was introduced, and would have kept that subscription going forward, but I need to vote with my wallet, and I will stop paying money for the game until Machina is significantly reined in in a way that makes the game otherwise playable.
If you agree about Machina, I suggest you do too.
