    So I was read you a surge and started playing with the app... Seems that it is one surge and if I zoom out it displays as another. Zoom back in and it changes the surge again.

    I have seen it before it is actually a surge area with different 2 different surge prices. It will say in the partner app surge 1.5 to 2.10 or something like that.

    Today Uber is supressing the surge.
    There are not enough cars around tha airport and huge demand for uber because of the game.
    I keep getting back to back non-stop requests but I have cancelled them all using ACRO for the first time.
    It is crazy how they supress the surge.
    there should be a lot of surge but it is not being allowed.
    I am not going to sit in Raymond James deadlocked traffic with a non-surge fare.
    I will wait till I get a surge ride or nothing.

    I noticed today that the surge map doesn't show at all around Raymond James -- even though the surge was 4x!! Something's up with that.

    I was around the west shore blvd, international plaza. Raymond James for a long time and I kept getting so many requests almost non-stop for over 30 minutes before I decided this is manipulated, bull**** and it doesn't make any sense at all!

    How was it possible under such heavy demand there was no surge is beyond me.

    I turned off the app and stopped being a tool. I went home and enjoyed the pool till about right now. Uber off is good for my nerves in tines like today.

    Wow that's ridiculous. I thought about going to rjs after the game to pick up surge, glad I don't even bother. If they keep suppressing the drivers, they're going to piss of the customers.

    I got the 4X at 7:25 and it showed red on my map.

    I have noticed that the surge will disappear from the app but still be in a surge. There is something wrong with the way the map refreshes. Log off , log on then it shows.

    It's not just RJS... I was getting the same situation downtown on Saturday night... no surge shown on the map but it was a 2.3 when I picked up at Channelside.

    Not a big deal... take the pings you get and don't try to control what you can't.

    BTW... someone got caught doing ACRO on Saturday... they were deactivated yesterday afternoon for it. Watch yourself... just saying
