Niantic, developer of the popular game Pokemon Go, plans to improve the existing system of players fights in Gyms. Despite the fact that game is entertaining, it still lackes the spirit of competition. According to Polygon, updated Gyms will appear in Pokemon Go in 2017.
As for working mechanics of the Gyms, players are looking for arenas that are located at different points of interest all over the world. Then they organize battle for superiority. Each Gym is protected by leader who may lose control over it. In general, system has no interest, since players do not directly interact with each other.
CEO Niantic John Hanke noted that the gym feature in Pokemon Go is very limited in functionality, so developers are going to pay more attention to teamwork and new rewards for stimulating players.
