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.
For those that have been playing Ingress since day one there has been a lot of changes between day one and it’s first birthday. For instance we’ve seen lots of nerfs, the Scanner app has gone through many changes as well and then of course there have been the additional items that have been added. Jarvis virus, Ada Refactor, Ultra Strike, and then all the portal mods.
However, the changes to the game fall short in comparison to the stories and memories that have been developed over this last year. For myself my favorite memory was prior to the XMP nerf and when portals weren’t very high level or heavily defended yet. With a single XMP strike I managed to take out 84 resonators in a heavily portaled area. The kicker of course would be the “Boom goes the dynamite!” I posted in Comm prior to launching my strike.
On Ingress’ birthday we think it makes sense that we share our favorite memories from playing the game. So please post yours in the comments below. We’d love to hear what you have enjoyed about Ingress and what your favorite memory is. We also have created a new poll to find out how long you have been playing Ingress. Results from the last poll will be posted next week.
