Its been pretty impressive to watch them figure out more and more ways to make the game playable during this time

It’s been interesting to watch the evolution other the past couple months. Hopefully they can continue to improve accessibility for folks with disabilities.

On another note, if folks here are hoping back into the game and are looking for some Waypoint friends to exchange gifts with, there is a Waypoint PoGo thread.
