Approved Waypoints and edits not Syncing (Again!)

    I have moved out of the city into my small town. Started nominating way spots early June and currently have 16 approved, all of which are live in Pogo. Still nothing in wizards unite and my home is a dead zone for spawns, ingredients and energy.

    So not enjoying having to choose between going out and not playing at all when the pandemic is still raging in my country.

    The game is getting more and more frustrating to play with more demanding tasks and less task spawns. My friends and I are also in a new neighborhood without ANY map spawns. We have also several approved submissions that could greatly benefit the community but it’s just been poor disappointment for the past three months. I check back on this post almost every single day for a possible update but never get to hear anything, not even a sure timeline. @HPWUrobert @HPWUcasey please prioritize this fix as this bug has been existence for a long long time.

    @janhm73 Wayspot sync issue is listed in the top known issues list and will stay top of mind for us until a fix is available. There is no ETA.

    When is that going to be? 1 month? 6? before 2020 xmas? after? a year? What is the issue? and sorry but after a total -so far- 4 months out of 12 of the game's existence w/o sync, no eta isnt good enough, no info isnt good enough. In october it'll be almost half a year w/o sync.

    Is "some time" going to take more than a year?

    Me and my husband have the same problem with new waypoints, I have done many new ones which are all appearing in Ingress and PokemonGO but keep appearing/disappearing from Wizards Unite, (which we play the most) any idea if there will be a fix soon? It is very annoying!

    Also I have downloaded the game on 2 new devices Ipad and Iphone 6S in order to play when my main phone is charging but the game doesn't load and doesn't download data. Does anyone know why?

    Thank you!

    @HPWUrobert Can they at least do a monthly manual sync? Going for so many months with no syncing of new POIs is unacceptable!

    @HPWUrobert Since this has been such a long, ongoing, major issue that greatly impacts the players, are we going to get any in-game gift to compensate us for the loss of so many new inns, greenhouses, and fortresses?

    We got a minor gift for losing thousands of fragments and a minor gift for a horrendously poor description for the trace charm. Where is the gift for losing out on potentially thousands of waypoints across the globe?

    No... I really don't care for another nearly worthless gift. I just want this to get fixed; and at least have it to be pushed up to the #1 top issue, instead of sitting in #5 of the top issue list (below cosmetic issues), several months after it was originally identified.

    there's at least 2-3k non synced pois in Greece alone, and Greece isn't a large country. What can they possibly give us to make up for all this lost time? 2000 Dada + Rsbs? lol. I mean I wish but I dont think they will.

    Just hope they wont fix POI sync like the"fixed" the TC bug with a bucket of dynamite.

    I hate to admit it, but after the dragons release I'm done untill that is fixed. I've invested my free time instead of doing something more worthly as just new POIs for pokemon go and ingress players and making out if that or those nominations are ok. I want to play and not to prepare myself for something that will eventually perhaps someday happen and wait for the Team to do their jobs. I want to have a joy and a feeling of the success from the game, that is taken from me btw also by that ridiculous nerf of the TC.

    I would also like an update on when this issue will be fixed? There are loads of new POI in my town that are not updated in HPWU.

    Shame this isn’t fixed yet. I’ve been adding quite a few new POI to my own area and those nearby.

    I do wonder how it’s going to affect inns & fortresses when the sync does kick in.

    Hi @HPWUrobert

    Sorry but its getting ridiculous.

    Can you at least give us a time-frame.

    Or is it because there is no time-frame, because it's not prioritized?

  • WinterDrachenWinterDrachen Posts: 5 ✭✭
    #5017 September, 2020, 10:09 pm.

    @HPWUrobert is it ok if we keep placing new POIs in the area, will they appear after your fix or should we better wait with it untill some news from you guys?

    It is impossible to just hang around and wait -.-

    @HPWUrobert It's now really testing our patience. If the POI sync was at the top priority list, why isn't it still not solved, atleast in the new 2.15 update, but introduce a whole lot of new bugs which almost makes it impossible to play the game.

    I'm sorry if I'm being rude, but if this still persists, I really believe people will stop playing the game (Atleast I will for sure) and I don't see much future for the game !

    I quit Ingress, since the community there was toxic. I barely play PoGo, because the game is boring and monotonous. I keep playing HPWU, because it has a good community. The lack of support fixing bugs and introduction of new bug with every update is making it more and more difficult to stay, just for the community.

    Now, even the communication has become insanely horrible. @HPWUrobert seems to have just abandoned this thread a d @hpwulola seems to be nearly non-existent lately as well. Can't say that I fault them too much, though. The developers have failed so much, so they have to deal with constant complaints.

  • WinterDrachenWinterDrachen Posts: 5 ✭✭

    @BenTiger has a point, the communication team here don't really to blame for those issues. But to give us some information towards the progress and to make a push would be nice. No. Now it should be done somehow really soon!

    @BenTiger I thought it's just me thinking about the toxic ingress community. I feel the same about pogo and I think hpwu is the best game of all of those games by niantic. Just hpwu makes it possible to friendly communicate and not to be rivals to each other, with tons of hate for other players of the same game.

    P.S. sometimes think fazes left for own reasons, knowing what is about to come. I've been waiting for some fails coming and here they are...

    Hello this is earth we call Niantic.

    Niantic please respond.

    What is wrong with your POI - database servers ? It can't be that difficult to synchronize data points.

    In Cologne (Germany) we felt no synchronizations in the last 3 months, in other games new poi appeared and some were deleted. 

    When will we finally get a new state of affairs on this topic ?

    @SharkFanCologne, FYI, Robert and Lola likely work for Warner Bros/Portkey Games, rather than Niantic.

    The issue is likely on the WB side, so Robert and Lola would be the ones to know the status and ETA.

    On August 18 NianticCasey responded on the sister thread on the Niantic Wayfarer forum:

    Hi there,

    Circling back with an update here, unfortunately I have no news to share. This update is on the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite team to address and they are aware of it and working it into their release schedule. Unfortunately, that's all the information I have but I will keep an eye on this and let you know when there's movement on their side.

    Thanks for your patience!

    "Harry Potter: Wizards Unite team" probably means a WB team, but there is no direct confirmation.
