We have read the news that they are working on a subscription method for ingress, which would bring very good results in all aspects, if it is well implemented, since the expected result would be:
1.- end spoofers once and for all.
2.- expand the inventory and have better game options
3.- Improve the system of research and technical support.
This means that Ingress would no longer be free. pay for login.
You would have to pay for a subscription to be able to login to the system. and you will not be able to create parallel accounts, new account, new subscription, new payment. and if it is detected and that software was used to modify the GPS location, the account will be canceled, only with that type of strong rules, many problems would be avoided and Niantic would save the current problems with loyal players who leave the game for that cause.
Those who really like the game are the ones we would pay to build our territory and defend it, legally and in a fun way, real players, not ghosts, or kamikases, or spoofers. I think it is a good decision of niantic, but if is well implemented or better, but the game has to stop being free for everyone in order to end the cheating that has taken away their loyal players, and I include me with them, I I would gladly pay for that subscription and upgrade of the account, as long as Niantic guarantees us that we will play without spoofers, if not, there is no business. and here everything came, and I would not pay for the subscription, because it would be the same, we would have the same problem but with more upgrades for the spoofers and that is not business, that is my opinion, and count on me to continue improving the game, now It is your choice, or we save our dear ingress, or they end up damaging it for loyal players.
