    L17 or something like that, trying to work out why committed Ingress players also play it, some were beta testers so it's held their interest for a good long while.

    Constantly frustrated by not having enough gear - will have to buy balls if I want to keep playing but that seems like cheating.

    I would like to think that bots are being watched for and banned asap, why bother playing if you're going to cheat? Who do you think you're going to impress?

    What do you use the bots for?
    Were they hard to program or are they well enough developed that anyone can use them?

    LVL 18. Stopped playing after an update rendered the game unplayable anymore on my device. An app consuming 700-800 mb of ram is no joke in a 1gb device memory

    Does everyone buy pokeballs?
    I get a few from the first pokestop of the day, after that it's one or two per stop, but there will be more pokemon around the stop than I have balls and with them 'escaping' I'm always running out. Is the idea that you have to buy them to stay ahead?

    I did multiple times since the nearest pokestop from where I live is about 40 kms away and when my little kid plays using my account, bye bye pokeballs :)
    Theres about more than a hundred pokeballs in my account before I stopped playing.
    If you know how to raid gyms before, earning in-game cash to buy pokeballs is easy.

    Really - have they folded? have you got a reference?

    Lots of the Ingressers I know also play PGo and I'm sure I'd have heard something on slack if they'd closed it down.
    Last I heard, a week or so ago, there was quite a buzz because the new portals in Ingress were flowing through to PGo in the form of pokestops and gyms.

    Just because the craze has calmed down, it doesn't mean that the game is officially dead. There are still people who play the game but not in the same numbers as before. The game caused a buzz and the big media attention brought many people into the game who otherwise wouldn't play the game. Now, one year later, the real Pokemon fans are still playing the game. As long as the creators update the game and new portals are introduced, I think the game can survive.

    If you remember the Pokemon history, when they launched the games on the Gameboy, they first released the red and blue version. When people got used to the game they launched new games. The yellow version and then the gold/silver version. More games were released. This worked very
    well. If they want to continue the success with this platform they have to continuously work on improving the game.

    I went to a Google Cloud presentation last week and they used PGo as an example of flexible server management and they presented with this image. The intersection of the red and green lines was the NZ/Australia launch. While I don't know the date of this chart the fact that they are still using it would indicate they're still getting lots and lots of players every day (not me anymore tho).
