    LOL

    Completely opposite out here. ENL outnumber the RES and whatever we do is smashed quickly.

    Congrats on your progress !!

    Just passed 20,000,000 AP myself. Thought about it for a second and realized - that's only halfway to level 16 !! Yikes.

    Level 15 and going strong.

    Starting on Magnus Builder in a few minutes. Going to drive to DTM (Down Town Mesa), park, and walk around deploying on portals to begin earning the Architect medal (deploy on 3,113 unique resonator slots).

    Since Friday, played in Downtown Mesa, Cottonwood, Jerome, Prescott, and Wickenburg. Got the Builder medal in Prescott (1331 resonators deployed). Finished about halfway to the Architect badge/medal. Lots of fun and exercise walking all over these towns with Mrs. BIM. She has only been playing 72 days or so and she hit level 10 in Prescott.

    Nice work! Sounds like your wife is going to pass you up!


    I am still stuck at Level 12, but have 24,487 on my Builder. Lots of fun!

    Yeah, she is killing it. We both got our Magnus Builder Architect badges out in Florence, AZ last Saturday. It was a lot of fun. We like these focused missions/events like this.

    Ugh.

    A Phoenix-based player traveled to Blythe, CA over the weekend and took out our GP's (Guardian Portals).

    Mine was at 89 (the next badge level is 90). My wife's was at 83. SMH.

    The person who did it is a previously banned player now playing under a different username. She allegedly has a license plate which says GPHUNTER and was previously banned for spoofing and other activities which violated the game's TOS.

    Sucked to be so close and then be targeted. We had found such a good location to keep portals on the down low. No one ever stops in Blythe and the signal strength isn't great there either so it is a natural deterrent.

    About 5 million from level 16 now. Wife and I took part in a part Ingress-part GoRuck event last weekend. Backpacked all over downtown Scottsdale playing some Ingress and doing a digital Scavenger Hunt with a group focused on community outreach - thanking a first responder, taking out the trash at a mom and pop store, writing letters to soldiers, etc. Tons of fun. Met some cool Ingress players and some cool (and tough) GoRuck members. At the end of the day our teams were tied and a plank-off was held to determine the winner. Got two physical badges/patches for the event and will get a digital badge on our scanners in Ingress.

    Got 500 fields for the latest challenge. No way am I going for 2,000 by Monday.

    My wife is going for 100. About 20 away.

    Just over 300k AP away from level 16 now. Soon.

    Some late night smashing and fielding resulted in level 16.
