Default Re: Ingress

My phone picks up a weak GPS signal inside my house and causes drift - usually only a couple of hundred metres or so.

There are four portals that I used to very occasionally hack from home that way - but more often than not it drifted tantalizingly close to a portal but still just out of range. I've trained myself not to bother watching for this now as it was a huge waste of time - if I want to hack those portals it's quicker to just go outside and walk to the portals to hack them properly! :lol:

I've occasionally seen brief drift up to a couple of miles distant - but that's very rare and I've never seen it drift further away than that.

Due to my rural surroundings we are able to maintain quite alot of coverage for reasonable periods of time. These fields, give or take one or two, have been standing for nearly 2 weeks now!

This is an interesting presentation (as long as you can cope with the ever so jolly font):

How to cheat at MMOs without cheating

By Richard Bartle who wrote MUD in 1978.

It doesn't mention Ingress but all its points apply!

I might have to visit these portals that are on a me-shaped peninsular.

If you imagine the penguin is giving the finger with her left flipper then making a field of the three portals will nicely draw the right flipper.

ETA: this was made a year and a half ago, in Paris.

You will be astonished to hear that it has affected me too.

One of my local fellow frogs was convinced the corner portals were green and the field was just already down, just ghosting ... but that was hours ago so I think not.

What are the Dutchies doing? Too chilled to go and destroy stuff?

It is down this morning.

Sometimes they just pick portals that are hard to get to for some reason. I like using parks that close at night, because the one smurf in my area seems to only play at night.

I got it the same weekend as bey's birthday, and I had done the math so you know I was counting down the days for ages before it came. It finally got smashed at 169 days old, which is a-ok with me.

Ingress players don't hang out at skate parks is the message I'm getting.

Speaking of guardians... I've been recharging some for people that don't seem to be playing any more. There are 3 different remote portals that I have keys for where L1 players plonked down some resonators and then seem to have given up on the game shortly after. So far I have them up to 46, 49 and 52 days. I don't know why, but it pleases me to think I could get them to black guardian and that be their only badge :D Here is one:


Got them all to platinum recently, then lost one of them. Still have two going strong, come on Black Guardian :D

Attachment 10349

Also, I finally made Black Translator :woot:

And I saw 2 glyphs today that I had never seen before as well... begin was one, can't remember the other one but it looked like a fatter version of the shapers glyph
I forgot about this until I saw ES's post. Both are still going strong and Black Guardian now, over 220 days each. I suppose I could just let them die now but I'm a recharger at heart and probably won't :lol:

Oh and my own Guardian made it past 1 year about a week ago, woot.
