The first Pokemon Go Fest hasn’t gone off with no hitch. Or two. Or even three.
Pokemon Go Fest Chicago is being held today in Grant Park and there have been a couple of points together with some crowd booing.
One of the primary complaints at Pokemon Go fest are fixed connectivity and latency points, making the sport unplayable for a lot of attendees, as famous by reddit.
And it’s not simply at Grant Park in Chicago both as Pokemon Go gamers throughout are reporting the identical challenge.
No phrase at current how the server issues have affected the power to complete the Challenge Windows.
The Pokemon Go Twitter account even acknowledged the server connection issues, and mentioned Niantic is working as shortly as attainable to handle the issue. With of us from all around the world logging in, the servers aren’t capable of accommodate the inflow it appears.
Tickets to the pageant have been solely $10 a pop, except bought by third-parties, however even with a budget ticket worth many paid fairly a bit of cash only for journey solely to be met with long lines for something and the whole lot on the occasion. Even the road to get into Grant Park was past large. Which, contemplating the quantity of individuals attending, it’s to be anticipated. We’re not sure what number of are there in the intervening time as Niantic hasn’t introduced any numbers.
But lengthy strains and connection issues are sufficient to throw a little bit of chilly water on what was anticipated to be a enjoyable day. And that’s a little bit of disgrace.
And talking of chilly water being tossed (thanks, BlackBeltGaming), when Niantic CEO John Hanke hopped on stage to handle the group, he was met with a lot of booing, and people chanting “We Can’t Play” and “Fix the Game.” Oh pricey.
Hopefully the whole lot will work out ultimately, and subsequent yr, Niantic will do some tinkering so issues run extra easily.
