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.

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.

And although I said to myself: “Not too many friends this year, just a small private party.”, my living room was filled with joyful people who were celebrating my living spree.
