Maybe we should let the greatest of games quietly go to another world?

    I think people need to accept the beginning of the end has just occurred, with the announcement that the forums are closing down in April.

    I really can't see Ingress lasting more than two years at most. I personally think it will bow out at the 13th anniversary, next year.

    As I posted on another thread, the game seems to be an increasing 'cheats paradise', and that is partially helping to drive the honest and worthwhile players away.

    Make the most of the game whilst you can.

    So - I still enjoy playing, and several regions are still busy, but...

    The game is a far cry in terms of engagement than it was. Previously we had to actively watch Intel to counter enemy moves, and actively prevent BAF etc etc.

    Now, it's all just rather predictable with a handful of casual players, dominance lines established and little in terms of aggressive gameplay on a regular basis.

    Like a pack of stale crackers, it's still edible but certainly not fresh. There is basically zero engagement from Niantic. (But yes I did enjoy shards night).

    I'd like to see not a roadmap per se- but a comment on where Brian and the team seem to think it's going; because without advertising and SOME engagement from Niantic, I cannot see it continuing for very long except for the hardcore players remaining, who, probably still play for casual reasons and to not let the opposition gain advantage.
