FINALLY hit level 7! Managed to get stuff from a PokéStop, including a single Poké Ball, which I then used to catch a Gastly, which gave me just enough experience to level up.

My experience with Pokemon GO.

Spoiler: show
Did the workaround to get it in the UK. Was annoying as I had to use an old email and re activate the email and everything.

- Sign up to the game
- Catch a Bulbasaur
- 'What do I call you?'
- Error code when trying to choose a name
- Close app
- Re-open, stuck in loading screen
- Close app
- Re-open, finally get past the naming bit
- Go to post a letter, visit pokestops and shit, cool
- Catch a Pidgey, cool
- Game freezes
- Close app
- Re-open, stuck in loading screen again
- Close app
- Re-open, still stuck
- Close app
- Re-open, all is fine
- Game starts wacking out and im flying all over Hornchurch
- Close app
- Loading screen hell
- Close app
- Go to get some cigarettes, pop an incense
- Go to catch a Rattata, game freezes
- Close app
- Re-open, all is fine for once
- Catch another Rattata fine
- Golbat, waste a bunch of balls on the flying fuck
- Finally get it, game crashes
- Close app
- Loading Screen hell
- Re-open, loading screen hell
- Close app
- Re-open, all is fine
- Rattata on the way home, catch, game crashes
- Re-open
- Get home and I'm like fuck this app but then a Spearow shows up
- Catch, game crashes
- Re-Open app
- The game finally acknowledges I'm well into level 2 at this point, I was level 2 about an hour ago
- Catch a Slowpoke, everything is fine, holding out hope for this app yet
- Hey look a Pidgey, lets get it
-
Spoiler: show
ERROR

- Fuck this I've had enough


Just CTRL + F that wall of text and type 'Close app' and you'll see my frustration.

0/10 buggiest thing I've ever wasted my time trying to get a hold of. I'm so dissapointed.

Servers crap out once west coast wakes up. Never have any issues before 1 PM EST.

The selfish American says: Maybe part of the reason the North American servers are overloaded is because you Europeans and Canadians keep trying work-arounds to get onto NA servers when you're not supposed to!

The altruistic American says: I have read reports of Canadians being banned by Niantic, finding their player characters standing in the middle of an ocean with zero wireless signal whenever they attempt to load the game. No one knows if these really are bans or not, or if they are bans then for how long they'll last. But I'd advise you all to play it safe, be patient, and to not circumvent the regional protections. Seeing as the game has just launched in Germany within the last 48 hours, it seems probable that Canadian and UK releases are less than one month away. Better to wait days to weeks and then get to play forever than to be impatient, get to play for only a couple of days, and then to be banned for months upwards to forever.

(Keep in mind: I don't even have this game on my phone. So the "selfish American" voice isn't even me speaking for my own personal gain.)

Well here I am playing Pokémon Go in unreleased territory, the Netherlands, and for me its working swimmingly so long as the PTC doesn't crap out for long times again.

I get that the servers might take strain, but its certainly strange how some have as much trouble as Midgeorge does, while I rarely if ever have problems with connecting.


Because timezones I blame west coast

I get spawned in the ocean sometimes. My phone has trouble connecting to everything so it puts me in the ocean if it can't get a GPS lock. Other than that my experience is about the same as Midge's.

Oh yeah the maps come from Google and I remember Google maps starts centered in the Atlantic if it doesn't have your geolocation. So that is probably the deal with the oceans.

Sure, but the reports coming from the affected Canadians are along the lines of, "The game was working perfectly fine until this morning. And now, all that happens when I attempt to load the game is that it places me in the ocean and I can't do anything." Something like that. I'll have to go scouring for the specific user comments on Imgur, Reddit, Twitter, etc. again if you want to see the specifics of their complaints, but from what I recall reading earlier this morning they gave the impression of a game that had "ghost town"'d them, placing them in a limbo where they could technically load the app but could do nothing else app-associated. As though their device had no trouble loading the software installed on it but that the Niantic server, on recognizing the phone's MAC address from a blacklist, booted them off instantly.

Polygon reports that the bans are real and exactly as I've described but that they only last for several hours. I'm not sure if the bans that Canadians were reporting this morning are similar or if, in realizing what is going on, Niantic has decided to be harder on internationals who are violating the North American EULA.

Was driving around doing a quick errand and decided to walk through the local mall to hatch some eggs. Disappointingly few Pokémon in the mall. Was driving home and saw this huge concentration of PokéSpots, two of which had lures going.

Turns out it was the local park. Walked around for a little while and began noticing people on their phones. Before too long, there were 20 people camped around the gazebo where there were 3 spots all accessible at once, and everyone was catching tons of 'mon (I snagged a high-level Tangela, a Butterfree, Venomoth, and tons of Eevee). Now I think I have enough to hit 12 if I pop my Lucky Egg and evolve everything I possibly can!

The fact that the girls name is Ellie is hilarious. If only there was alcohol included

You understand the reference, but no, I don't believe her name is actually Ellie. She is just having him call her that precisely to convey the reference. Artist's actual name appears to be Jemina. She's from Finland!

You spawn in the middle of the ocean if your GPS can't connect, so it tries to place you at 0,0 until it can get a signal. Don't think that's bans, just bad connection

Seriously, why are there Drowzee everywhere in my neighborhood? I've yet to catch a Weedle or a Caterpie, but I'm finding Drowzee out the ass.

Am now level 14. Went down to my local quayside, found out one of my favourite bars was a Pokespot which people were regularly dropping Lure Modules on. Cracked into two Lucky Eggs and just watched the exp and Pokemon roll in. Will probably do similar tomorrow.
