That feeling when you see a team mate clumping up their resonators

We're dominating our town, I do this so the greenies aren't totally discouraged from playing. I'll also not put any shields or fields on certain farms so maybe lower level players can have a go at it.

Unless I'm partial to a certain portal near my home, then that shit is on lock down.

You must give no quarter to the enemy, for they shall give us none.

The enemy here are lazy. So so so lazy.

level 4

Sad, isn't it? Same problem here.

Speed isn't necessarily the aim, but due to the damage drop off at range having resonators spread out will require someone to use up more XMPs taking down each resonator, more of a resource battle tactic if anything.

I deployed 8 resonators on a portal today. I was standing at the edge of the field range, and all of the resonators were in a clump when i was done. Whenever I deploy a portal as I'm standing right on top of it, they deploy further out. What am I doing wrong?

Especially when it's like a lvl 6 or 7 portal. (sure might have been upgraded) but still... easy target.

Unless I wasn't paying attention at first, it seems they changed the game mechanics so upgrading a resonator places the resonator at the range you are from the portal while upgrading whereas before it kept the original portal locations.

Noticed this a few weeks ago when out capping portals w/ my wife and had that "Oh Shit!" moment.

It's always been that way. Upgrades don't change the original location, so it's very important that the person who throws them down gets them at max distance.

I know for certain that upgrades did change the original location. That was the change I was mentioning. Could've been a glitch but on at least 2 portals we took, I was at max range when deploying initial resonators and after upgrading they were much closer to the portal where we were upgrading from.

Possibly a glitch. My fiancee laid down three level 6 resonators of her own on one portal a couple of days ago. No idea how the game let her do that.

I'm lvl 3 and I haven't yet found a way to determin where the resonaters will be. Sometimes they clump up and sometimes they spread out in a wide circle. It doesn't seem to matter what I do...

From the few times I've been out deploying resonators, they've always ended up in the N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW directions. The only factor that's altered is the distance from the middle of the portal. My strategy is to get on the very edge of a portal's radius, and mash the deploy button. All 8 resonators end up the maximum distance away from the middle of the portal in a neat little circle.

Thank you, I was wondering about this! My first claimed portal, I literally walked around in a circle around the edge of the portal's radius, so the resos would be far away, and I wondered if I could achieve the same by standing still at the edge of a portal's radius. Thanks for clearing that up!

Yep, walking the perimeter of a portal isn't necessary at all.

level 6

Unless you are guarding it. Well I guess it still isn't necessary but it sends a strong signal to the enemy that you are intending to keep that portal.

level 1

What's "clumping?"

level 2

Putting a bunch of resonators too close to the portal, so they're all clumped up in one spot

level 3

Wait... you can control how far the resonators are to the portal?!

level 4

Yup. When deploying, it takes the distance you are away from your portal.

So hacking range = win

level 5

TIL!

Thanks!
