Pokémon Go a "No Go"

Organizers of the first Pokémon Go Fest in Chicago, were forced to offer ticket refunds and Pokemon Go credits after their event failed.The event was meant to be a celebration of the game’s first year and an opportunity for fans and players to meet each other and work together to earn unique in-game rewards. However, the concentrated group of players all trying to connect to the game’s servers at the same time appears to have overwhelmed the game and local cell towers.

When Niantic CEO John Hanke came out on stage to address the crowd, he was met with boos and people chanting “We can’t play.”
