Technical Issues Plague Pokemon Go Event

A Pokemon Go Event is being remembered for countless technical issues.  On Saturday in Chicago, Pokemon Go Fest was set to be a celebration of the game’s first year.  The event quickly descended into chaos as 20,000 players stood in entry lines for hours and then encountered a lack of bandwidth once inside.

Crowds booed a company official as he tried to explain that providers were attempting to pump in more bandwidth.  There was also a crash bug issue and an authentication issue.  Developer Niantic said they would offer players a refund on their $20 tickets and will give them $100 in Pokecoins.
