I've been noticing quite a number of what I will call "Commercial Portals" popping up near me. What I mean by commercial portal is one that is there seemingly to promote a business. Heck, the company I work for created a portal for their main building.
Also, near where I work a billiards hall put up a portal, a T-Shirt company did one and many others.
I'm not sure what I think about this. On one hand I love that there are more portals available, but on the other hand I feel it cheapens the game, especially the more blatant ones. Think how watered down the game will become if every strip mall has half a dozen portals.
I already have issues creating control fields because my link would intersect another link. it will only become more difficult with extreme quantities of commercial portals.
What are your thoughts?
