    There's 2 parts to this issue.

    One, like you said, the absolute lack in testing and quality control.

    Second, the results of lack of said testing and control.

    Yes, with sufficient testing this could be prevented. But it didn't. It happened.

    Now since it went live, they didn't promptly acted whenever this "feature" was put under there attention. They waited weeks to clarify and even longer to fix it. The only response we basically got was "oh well, here's a free pack, move on". And that's why everyone is upset.

    Not that they goofed. Everyone knows that it will happen. It's that they don't care.

    Yes, in the grand scheme of things, the RSB aren't important. But the lack of caring about their customers is what ticks everyone off.

    No testing and quality check is one thing. Giving the finger to everyone as a response... That's the issue.

    to me this train of "incidents" feels like (some) unhappy employee messing up the system/server. 🤔

    What I'd like to know at this point about the trace charm is why fully half the times I cast it on a red beam trace it gives me Fluffys. I'm so sick of Fluffy and the 4 casts it takes to beat it. Super time consuming. Make some other traces appear!

    So, if not fragments, what is that +1 supposed to mean??? Come on ...

    If you really will not give what's in the description, I suggest you increase significantly the family XP per trace. I'd say 20 FXP per proficiency level sounds fair.

    I’m not even Consistently getting one additional fragment. There is frequently a glitch and it keeps getting lost!

    It initially reports giving me one additional fragment, two total, but at the end shows it actually only gave one, and when I check in registry it in fact only gave one.

    Here is an example. At first it increases from 5 to 7, but then at the end only increases to 6!

    @EliasHolmes Is this trace from a Dark Detector? I routinely get only one fragment from one of the two traces from a Dark Detector.

    We should be able to do a refresh of our SOS skills and start over, reading the other comments I see others agree with me I wouldn't have spent RSB on these nodes if I had known this. I also would have gone other directions with my DADA books. If we could clear our skill trees and start over we would be happier.

    @BenTiger exactly the point I tried to make. A reset would almost certainly cause more problems than it solves.

    The one to the right that says maximum spell casts 0, that is showing how many spell casts you currently have, we all start with 2 right so 0 is wrong. You should either show maximum spell casts and it be the total they can hold, or change the description to current spell casts held as that is what it is currently showing. My changes from 0 to 5 depending on how much I have at the time I look at it.

    Hahaha, you went and just put it in the store, you didn’t even bother to listen to us... you guys seriously dropped the ball on this one.. you lost all credibility ... with me at least... I’m so done with niantic games.. I regret the day I opened ingress for the first time, so many years wasted helping you build a platform to abuse your player base

    good bye!

    So you made a perfect skill section for the players, but now you see that it will be too 'easy' to prestige pages and call it a misunderstanding. Excellent!!!!

    Nice question @Ashkaa

    The way things are going downhill in terms of gameplay and community management, most of us won't be around by the time (early 2022) there are enough Dada books to unlock these sos skills! 🤣

    @Ashkaa The Extravagant Spell Energy gifts are awarded from the "Rare XP" and "Rare Energy" gifts. The "Rare Spellbook" is just another regular Spell Book. It is just another case of a poorly worded skill. They obviously did not put forth any effort to check for issues with skill descriptions.

    It’s pretty clear this needs to be addressed. The “Dangerous Attraction” bait and switch has demoralized me from being a $200/month player to $0 and barely having the interest to complete daily tasks. Without some acknowledgement and remediation, this Lvl 56 maxed A/M is going to find another outlet.

    Yeah I'm done with the trace charm too. I casted it on Orange beam da-trace, it gave me Orange hh-traces. While I was trying to catch those, it had changed the da-trace to friggin normal basic woww quibbler-trace. So why would I want to boost efficacy or even keep playing, when nothing works like it is supposed to. 4876 fragments catched and no mystery objects for the assignment. Trace charm doesn't work. Stupid disco effect and foe already engaged and everything, restarting all the time. I was so excited when I finally got a phone this game Works at, since i've been hc Potter-fan for years. You really have made me angry and truly dissapointed. I have loads of paramount portkeys, but I ain't using my money that I have earned with hard work to support this travesty of a game. Yeah, I'll still keep playing, but not paying for anything before things are fixed and you have apologized from those who have played from the start and put significantly more money in this game, than I who has played for little over a month.

    I just posted a screenshot of the same thing happening to me and it went to moderation. Not sure why. The game is messed up though.

    So, @hpwulola , what did you guys do?

    Now the trace charm is completely nerfed. Cast it twice today on red beam traces and it spawned one red beam and six or seven common random traces. Garbage. So now proficiency AND efficacy are worthless.

    I find it amazing that yoiu bozos rush to "fix" any "problem" that benefits the players, but any of your problem that cheat and deliberately deceive the players are blatantly ignored. I've spent a lot of REAL money buying resources for this infuriating game, but I'm done. You will never get another red cent out of me. Your group has absolutely no integrity whatsoever.
