8 Thoughts to “Silph Road Raid Beacons – Is no a single using them?”

  1. It was a good idea, but people found other forms of communication more efficient. If Silph Road had an app when this feature was released, it would’ve arguably been a staple for raids.

  2. Was just thinking the same thing. Discord and WhatsApp beat out the Silph Road simply because they are apps on your phone that are easy to use. If the Silph Road created an app for their raid system, I’m sure it would be up there with the other apps.

  3. Yes, we never “pulled the trigger” and enabled push notifications on the Radio, as Discord largely filled the need for the community right out of the box. We left it up for any small communities who wanted to keep using it, but it’s largely been deprecated.

    Discord’s rise has really been meteoric in its adoption rate – and, though the Radio might have been a little more effective at some things, competing for adoption among the non-tech savvy while most had effective Discord chats was not really a wise or necessary path forward.

    We decided to instead re-purpose some the Radio’s infrastructure for an entirely different tool that will roll out on the Road in the near future. 🙂

  4. I felt as though the Nest Atlas was really mishandled and now i rarely ever use it. I used to report clusters and common spawn points and chose the option that said they were not nests but just common spawns and somehow all of my reports were deleted and i noticed there are only a few nests left in my city. Plenty of the spawn areas still spawn consistent types near my neighborhood, but i feel like they’ll just delete them if i report them.

  5. Just to comment, I figured I would try firing up a beacon for a nearby raid in Northern Virginia and noticed only the beacon all the way in California. I really like the concept of using them but is there a particular reason that they aren’t being used, aside from it being a relatively new feature?

  6. Sadly yes, although it is a really good idea, it just doesn’t get used

  7. Correct, it’s much easier to use the systems that were already in place with many users, rather than adopting yet another system with limited features from an obscure subreddit many have never heard of and don’t already have on their phone.

    If Reddit Chat was already implemented by the time other chat systems were turned to, it might have been a viable option.
