Following the Pokemon Go Fest disaster, Niantic postpones future events
Pokemon Go Fest was a great idea. Not only did it give Niantic a chance to reignite interest in Pokemon Go, it served as the perfect opportunity to introduce Legendary Pokemon into the game. But you know what they say about the best laid plans of mice and men. The event was a complete mess as players were unable to connect to the game's servers and were forced to wait in line just to leave.
It all culminated in a class-action lawsuit filed by attendees who spent hundreds or even thousands of dollars to get to Chicago to participate in the festivities. In light of all that, it probably won't surprise you to learn that Niantic is taking a step back and reexamining before hosting another event.
