Yesterday Niantic sent out an update to the Pokemon Go app. The only thing I had noticed was that my app was taking a lot longer to load. But no biggie. Except that with the update, a few things were moved around. Like acknowledgement buttons.
Today when the server went down, a prompt came up saying it could not connect to the server. There was a button in the place that USED TO SAY OK to the statement. But with the update it seems that a few things had been moved around and instead of acknowledging the system error, I was logging out.
No biggie, I'll log back in. HA HA HA HA.
Once I figured out which email address I had used, I tried to use their password retrieval process to get my password and log back in, but they keep saying that they don't have record of my email address. The very same email address that is the basis for my level 30 player.
But now that I can't get back into my account, there's an entire world out there. I can play my music collection, see things around me, read my books again. It's almost a fantastic revelation being let go by this game.
If they never get back to me, so be it! I don't think I'll miss the game that I've obsessed over since it's release. But hey, it was a fun distraction while it lasted.
