Niantic CEO explains Pokemon GO Fest tech issues, Moltres and Zapdos distributions dated
Posted on 3 weeks ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Mobile, News | 9 Comments | 0 Likes
The inaugural Pokemon GO Fest did not go well. Among the various issues were technical problems, which made it impossible for many attendees to play the game and participate in events for most of the day.
Over on the Niantic blog, CEO John Hanke commented on the situation in detail. Hanke ultimately said that technical issues “caused client crashes and interfered with gameplay for some users.” Hanke also pointed to an “oversaturation of the mobile data networks of some network providers” as well as network congestion, making it so some players couldn’t connect to the internet.
Pokemon GO Fest wasn’t a complete wash. Hanke did note how many people played together once issues were finally ironed out, and fans continued well into the night and throughout Sunday. Players in downtown Chicago participated in more than 69,000 Raid Battles and captured more than 7.7 million Pokemon, including more than 440,000 Legendary Pokemon. Trainers worldwide also participated in 4.6 million Raid Battles and caught more than 500 million Pokemon, including more than 1.9 million Legendary Pokemon.
Finally, Hanke confirmed distributions for the next Legendary Pokemon, Moltres and Zapdos. The former will be available between July 31 and August 7, while the latter is planned between August 8 and August 14. Also keep in mind that Articuno will only be offered through July 31.
