I realised some time back that most players only play in their own backyards, meaning their home and work areas. One should not expect reinforcements in the former of higher level resonators and shields. It is to be expected. That is realistic. To disguise the true situation in the form of positive talk reeks of rank hypocrisy.
A few other players have confirmed this state of affairs to me privately.
Attempting to point out the lack of clothes in the emperor would only bring out ugly, defensive anger.
As for fanatical players, they will be everywhere from midnight till dawn. They can also be found outside their home and work areas too.
