Homogenisation of Ingress and PoGo submission capabilities and benefits
Recently, the number of available nomination was made equal between Ingress and Pokémon Go. However, Ingress players still have superior possibilities when submitting a Wayspot and better benefits if it is accepted. At the moment, Ingress players:
- Can submit Wayspots in a range of 25 km from their current location (vs. 10 km for PoGo)
- Can propose edits and pictures for existing Wayspots in a range of 100 km from their current location (vs. 80 m in PoGo)
- If the Wayspot is accepted in game, receive 1000 AP and a Portal Key (vs. nothing in PoGo)
At this point, there is no reason for such a different treatment. Both games should have the same capabilities, possibly with an enlarged submission range (we all know that if someone has malicious intents, they can fake their position anyway, the current system only limits people who are in good faith). Moreover, PoGo players should be able to see their created Pokéstops and Gyms in their Postcard book.
