New and Improved Sync Grid!

Sync Grid Feature Updated! New features have been added to the Sync Grid, making it easier to use. Here’s what the update has to offer. We hope you find it useful!

Select Multiple

Image

By tapping Select Multiple on the Sync Grid screen, you can switch to the select multiple mode. The select multiple mode lets you select multiple tiles and activate them all at the same time.

Auto-Convert

Image

Added an Auto-Convert Co-op Sync Orb feature that automatically turns Co-op Sync Orbs into the exact amount of custom Sync Pair Sync Orbs required when you don’t have enough to activate tiles. Note: You can turn the auto-convert Co-op Sync Orb feature on and off using the Auto button on the bottom right of the Sync Grid screen.

Individual Reset

Image

Added a button to reset activated tiles individually. If you reset a tile, other tiles that require it to activate will also be reset. Note: You can still reset all tiles at once using Reset All.

Preset Grids

Up to 4 different Sync Grids with activated tiles can be saved as presets for each Sync Pair. They can be accessed from the top right button on the Sync Grid screen or the button in the Sync Pair details. Select one of the preset grids and tap the Use Grid button to switch to those settings. You can use the Overwrite button to copy the contents of the current sync grid to another preset grid. The four preset grids can be named using the button at the top of the preset screen.

Other Updates

  • Coins are no longer required to reset tiles.
  • If a tile requires a certain Move level before it can be activated, that level will now be displayed on the tile.
  • You can now pinch to zoom in and out on the Sync Grid screen.
  • Shortened the loading times for activating and resetting tiles.
  • The Sync Orb icon displayed on the Sync Pair list screen in the Sync Grid previously would only appear if you had the minimum amount of custom Sync Orbs required to activate a tile. Now, the icon will also appear if you have enough Co-op Sync Orbs.

Known Issues

The following issues have been confirmed in the most recent update. They will be fixed in a future update. We sincerely regret any inconvenience caused.

  • When the player selects a grid skill in select single mode without having enough energy to activate it, the energy amount is displayed in white.Note: It should be displayed in red.In the same situation as above, the OK button at the bottom turns gray and cannot be pressed.Note: The button should be active, and when pressed, it should prompt a dialogue box about insufficient energy.
  • When the player selects multiple grid skills in select multiple mode without having enough energy to activate them, some of the energy amounts in the selected grid skills list (displayed in red) are difficult to see. Note: They should be outlined in black.

Pokémon GO - Niantic - An Update on Our Recent AntiCheat Efforts

Posted by Sunain | February 23rd 2021 at 10:04 PM EST
Tags: Pokémon GO, Niantic

Niantic has posted a blog article detailing their recent efforts to reduce cheating in their games including Pokémon GO. More than 5 million cheaters across Pokémon GO and other Niantic games have been identified and resulted in 20% of the punishments being permanent bans, or approximately 1 million accounts.

Image

An Update on Our Recent AntiCheat Efforts

We don’t talk much about our anticheat efforts, partly because we don’t want to provide cheaters with information that can help them understand our detection mechanisms better. But, rest assured our reluctance to share is not due to a lack of effort or intent from our side.

Having said that, we have made a commitment with all of our players towards promoting fair gameplay, preserving the integrity of our games and improving transparency with our players. As part of this commitment we’d like to provide an update on some of our recent efforts to curb cheating in our games:

  • Since the beginning of 2020, we’ve issued punishments to more than 5 million cheaters across Pokémon GO, Ingress and Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, where over 20% of the punishments were permanent bans.
  • More than 90% of users who received their first warning, stopped cheating afterwards. This is quite encouraging for us, as we continue to find the right balance between punishing casual cheaters versus the more egregious ones.
  • We have invested in new & emerging technologies, while continuing to grow our team, to improve our detection and enforcement capabilities. We’ll continue to act against those who violate our terms of service and we’ll be reinforcing our efforts in the coming weeks.
  • We are constantly tweaking and improving our existing detection methods by collecting ground truth from player reports and other channels of feedback, to ensure we are accurately detecting cheaters and minimising false positives.
  • We are always listening to our players and are exploring ways to leverage our community to ensure our games remain fair. To empower all Ingress Agents, we’ve rolled-out a new Fast Track process, which would enable them to request for a quicker manual intervention, before the rogue Agent can cause more damage to the gameboard. Since then, we’ve received more than 4K Fast Track requests, of which ~70% were eligible for an expedited review; and after investigating, appropriate actions were taken against those reported Agents. We’ll continue to iterate and improve the process based on the feedback we receive from the community.
  • To address concerns of remote Ingress Portals getting spoofed during Ops, we’re working on introducing additional security measures to reduce the impact of such egregious cheating on the game board. We’ll be sharing more information about our Compartmental Access Level measures in the coming weeks on the Ingress forum and our other social channels.
We are committed to ensuring fair gameplay across our game portfolio. Every day newer forms of cheating or spoofing tools are made available on the internet, and we are continuously working to combat these cheaters and focus on improving our detection and enforcement; as they have no place in our games.

As a reminder, please only use the official versions of our games available on Google Play Store, Apple App Store and Samsung Galaxy Store; and note that we do not support jailbroken or rooted devices.

Thank you all for your continued support and patience.
The Niantic team
