Both of my 2 lvl32 accounts were banned today after doing the update...
start a new one lol, thats what i did.
We all got banned, lol.
Don't think so, I'll buy 2 new level 32 accounts online and quit the farming. :/
It can't be because the update... I got a ban in my main account and I didn't bot in the last 6-7 days
It happened when I was using 1.71 (didn't know there was a 1.73 out at the time) which is described in the sticky thread about the cause by the trap. It shows my account cannot be authenticated but doesn't show i am banned. Anyhow, i was running two accounts at the same time with 1.71 but one is no longer able to authenticate. If it is banned, oh well, already started another one.
It is a risk we all have to take and I still love the bot without any complaints of losing my account(s).
As per the updates post. It has been updated, and since yesterday we have had good results from everyone. At this time we have no reason to believe our newest release poses any risk past the usual for botting.
As for the banwave, it wasn't specific to the errors and captchas, as new data suggests the banwave compiled those flagged for around the last 2-4 months with various settings, various use of 3rd party apps. Meaning that while we had captchas galore at first we have no reason now to believe that even with that trap, that Niantic effectively caught PF as they had hoped to do.
I hope this addresses your questions and concerns.
Same here. 4 of my accounts got terminated and I stopped botting them before the last niantic update.
I think most of us were flagged for banning before these recent issues with PF
Hello CAcove, do you have an idea as to which settings caused the ban. I feel like I played relatively conservatively always at walking speed and never autotransferring or recyling.
Were you teleporting?
No never. No sniping either.
