Portals...

    When the devs add portals, who else feels that there should be an ingame defense bonus to bases built using actual location over hopping/porting? I hop. I will port. I also TRAVEL. Hook it up.

    But then some players (those lucky enough to travel for work or rich enough to go on vacation anywhere on Earth) would have an unbalancable advantage over everyone else...

    Real world dictators would also travel on their quest for global supremacy so I think a slight advantage for actual gps base placement is a good idea in relation to hopping to that location. On the other side though, what kind of advantage would make traveling across town to drop a base over just hopping there make it worthwhile to me? The only places I hop to are places I know I'm not gonna drive to any time soon.

    When I started playing, I was glad that this GPS based game didn't have airports. I think that portals are a bad idea. I get the argument for someone who doesn't have the means or way to travel, but this a location based game. You should at least have to be somewhere to drop a pin, and then work with the hop. It ruined TW for me and looks like this one is following suit. Sad.

    I totally see where you're coming from but I think it's a necessary evil. Portals will allow more players into the game and make it better for everyone. I think one of the biggest reasons new players quit is because they start where there aren't any active players and find no point in continuing.

    👆👆Very true. I pretty much stopped playing a couple months in until i realized how awesome hopping is in GS compared to tw. Then i decided to take my game to the more populated areas.
