For those that have been playing Ingress from the start it’s hard to believe that today is the first birthday of Ingress. But indeed it is, one year ago today the first set of invites went out with activation codes to the Ingress Scanner app. So today is as good of a day as any to share your favorite memory or memories from playing Ingress over the last year.
This is the final post in a three part series of my race to becoming a Level 8 Ingress Agent. Where we left off I only needed a bit more than 100,000 AP to Agent Level 8 and the best fight for AP was still to come!
In the week that followed, I visited some friends in small towns and gathered what very little AP I could by attacking the only L8 agent there but he was way overpowered for me at this point. So I went over to his work portal in the outskirts of town (which was badly located in the first place, because the statute on the picture belongs to a swimming pool in the center of town) and tried to take down his level 7 portal outfitted with 4 very rare Portal Shields. The first few minutes went great, I took down one shield and one L7 resonator, but then he noticed me.. He started recharging and rebuilding, so after 30 more minutes the portal was at 100% health and all his shields were still up. I felt cooked by the sun from walking around all day in the heat and I got cranky. The best thing for me to do was leaving that area, go home and relax a bit.
My last post dates from end July and you all saw in that header, that I was just beginning with level 6. In fact I only had 336,282 AP and a whole lot left to gain before I would become a level 8 Ingress agent.
From that point on, I paused my writing for Ingress Guide and wrote a battle plan just so I could gain the nearly 1 million more AP I would need to become L8. And I can tell you all: it worked, I became a level 8 Ingress agent in just 2 weeks!
Good afternoon, fellow +Ingress Agents. My name is Mustafa Said and this is Mustafa’s Musings of the Day. Today, I’d like to share my thoughts on the mysterious Tycho posters, including the one that provoked H. Richard Loeb to find out if Carrie was dead. By now, it’s common knowledge: Carrie Campbell has passed away. I’ve shared my thoughts here, if anyone is interested in reading them.
