Agent Academy Episode Number Seventy seven recorded on March fifth. Two Thousand and twenty. I'm agent Gooney Guy j Asian and my phone's beeping off the hook and I think that's because we got a lot of news tonight and people are just tweeting away. Hey the academy's live if you haven't yet maybe you should so my phone just Blair's up some more. Let's do this and tonight. We'll be talking about the heck's athlon as well as I- Spoofer what is this. I've never heard of this and I think we have our resistance pal do Jay who can tell us all about. I talk to that as well as women's history month in women's of interest as well as the release notes. So let's start off with vein. I want to hear about your lawn road trip. Miami Road trip that was there. There was a lot of driving quite the amount of driving but the meat and potatoes of the event. You know the actual on the reason why I was there for the most part other than meeting. More agents spending some time with friends Just gathering together and having fun playing the Game Uh digital go rock on the side for the box on Sunday with mission day but the Heck Sappho on itself beautiful weather for. It couldn't have asked for like a Nicer Day in Miami. It was crazy though. I think about thirty minutes into the event. A few of us that we're going for elite realized that with these smaller number of agents that were site we were going to have to push exceptionally hard to actually hit elite. So in Miami we had about a total of sixty seven. Participants wants to scoreboard. Started Fr- refreshing and going live so that meant that you had to be in six place or above in any of the six categories to score elite so think about forty five minutes in. I realized that if I didn't focus on just one stat I likely was not gonna be able to get elite and just went hard core on deploying out resonator is I manage to somehow sustained deploying resonated throughout the entirety of the event and deployed a nine hundred eighty eight resonator Israel place at one stage. I think thirty minutes before the was going to end. I ran across a friend of mine. Asian interlocking enlightened and I just kind of looked at him and it was like what are you doing? And he's like a moving point and we just swapped here like in the middle of the off. People are deploying capturing everything and he was like anymore like. I need more originators. So we ha swapped right on the spot just we can keep going and that strategy at least paid off I mean. We both managed to get elite. Somehow it was very hard fought though so to all the agents something ground at Miami that managed to snag elite or exceptionally close. Feel proud about that one because it was it was crazy. So did you have elite from the first one the field test? Yes yes from this September Field Test. I went to Providence Rhode Island's and elites for that was I think twenty first place or higher because there were somewhere around two hundred ten participants. Sue Heck of a difference seem like A. were people expecting more people to be in Miami. I'm not really sure like I. I always expect when I see chat so we have like across fraction telegram chat and its mission day. Or what have you? I always expect that you'll get people that are joining kind of like last minute. Because they're either unaware that shot exists or they're just tying up last minute and then the really wasn't the case so majority of people that were there for the event had already gotten in a chat so I guess a bunch of assumed more people would be turning out in. That just didn't happen. Which made a lot harder? Once we realized that there wasn't going to be like another hundred agents coming out with Woodward in the case like all over do you think no I think actually I would need to look at the numbers for some of the other sites but I think Miami might have been one of the smallest attendance for this Round here for perpetual. Because I think Houston Houston where we're in Texas. Do they have new San Antonio I WANNA say they have like a hundred ish. Somewhere on their I know a couple of the other sites where the one fifty range Overseas overseas had big numbers. From what I hear. Yeah so like can. We attribute it to anything that maybe can be done differently. Next time like was it. Locations was it corona virus. You know was it just not enough promotion from NIANTIC for those spots of what's going to be there I don't know what else could be the cause of lower attendance. I think part for Miami was just location. Made it a lot harder for for people in the US to travel And then I think other sites like San Antonio Probably Portal pulled in more people from like a wider radius than something like Miami would right. There were more central. Like people can come from all around the people that Might not want to drive to the end of Florida to go. How's the weather in Florida? I always think it's going to be at least warmer than where I am. It was it was definitely lower. I think we hit like seventy seven during the heck South Lawn which I left rose at. It was like thirty five raining. They came into Sun and seventy seven. I'm wearing a t-shirt during the heck's athlon and there are locals that are walking around in like those puffy like Parka jackets. And I'm like what is this. It's sunny and beautiful outs. I'm wearing a t-shirt will do. And we'll talk more about heck's athlon in the situation report of course but you also met. Is it true you met a wild agent academy listener? Yes and I've been sitting here trying to figure out who it was from the Miami Cross faction chat. But I'm drawing a blank. They approached me right around the time that registration portal window was closing We're going to go take a group picture and I just wasn't able to awake. What's your Asian name? It just didn't come to me in the moment you called. I can remember the face I just. Can't I mean they had a blue shirt on some? I'm assuming resistance are doing some opt anyway. And that's hard like that happens like anomalies and things like that. It's just there's so much going on like my brain has a hard time with names. In general let alone like when there's so much activity going on connect that name with a face so I I. It's like get get pictures and then like hey post that somewhere in tweeted to me. That's that's why you carry bio cards. Well we need to make sure we all have agent Academy Bio Cards. I need to. We need to jump on that. I'll get to do. I'll get the research and development portion of our conglomerate working on that plane slowly rolling that that'll be more codes because then you give them a card and then the agent could have come to the website and getting a badge for meeting vein in the wild vein and speaking of wild. Aj Jay. How's it going what's going burn? How hot you. I did have a wild last Tuesday. Fat Tuesday everything was going on of course fat Tuesday so everybody's eating I went to a theatre troupe. Meeting we had king cake food. And what did I end up by? Ended up with the baby a whole year of luck but then I gotta buy a cake next year. Don't you have to eat it? It's like I was getting built last piece. And everybody's looking around like what are you all looking at. And then they're like eat that very carefully and I forgot all about the baby and I'm like what are you talking about and I took first chunk and I'm like Oh crap dental appointment on Monday. Yeah but no I did not bite into it I I kinda know it was there but Yeah and then. I went from there to barbershop choir. Would they have king cake and food? I did not get the baby in that one and it was my birthday on top of it so it was it was a very full day But other than that. It's been going pretty much the same what we usually do and am. Oh to Juliette nine. Just large single layer fields. Make any all blue simply because we can But I did get a few weeks on the road for for the job a couple of times so I got in some smaller cities that have those two or three portals that nobody ever visits and I felt sad so I had to visit them. Light him up and leave so a three to view. I'm just that Kinda guy other than that. Not a whole lot on the angry. Just trying to get fields trying to get links actually got a little bit of Some blockage around here to do a little clearing over the weekend. Throw some stuff. That sounds dangerous. Well I'd rather clear the ring. I have a feeling I'm going to have to clear some blue. Yeah it makes you real popular when you clear your own team's links but it just sometimes you feel challenges over were dumb. Oh Oh on no. That's that's excuse us. Thanks yeah I I've just been doing my daily daily run around and playing with the new version and there are some issues with it and we'll talk about a lot of that in a situation report as well but just you know work work work doing. We're doing podcast now. And I'm editing videos and you know the websites sites all like billion of them so busy busy busy and plants minecraft those like when I'm home. That's my home thing. So I'm behind. Minecraft even played that tape. Jj blaze just subscribed again and that's his thirty first a month being a subscriber and on a twenty seven month streak so that is very cool. Someone get that manage to journal just cookie or something. I don't know we need may metal. So that's US and now let's move onto situation report. We've got a lot of Things we'll turn off the music because you don't need that I just want to show that Jj blaze thirty one months. So I'll flash some of the news headlines While we're talking about the first thing of course is the elite Hex athlon agents which vein ARY mentioned his number four placement. Congratulations we needed some cheering. Numbers also greider eighty number three and that was in San Antonio and McCain helped number five for media artifacts in Salt Lake City and number two for resonator said took too WanNa go agents and I will say that writer eighty does not surprise me at all. I've been for Saturday with her. She's just she's a machine. I think I'm doing good and then I'll walk tripled. What I've done in my gut. How do you do that? Did she get the most? Ap At the F. S. there was up there for. Yeah yeah she gets. I don't know that I've seen in that. She doesn't top out. Nice onto get some strategies. Yeah she knows how to do it. Field reporting for you go get some strategies for us and we'll put it on air next time before everything there you go just whatever you see. Deploy Dough bothered. Don't bother hacking. Don't bother you know. Cliff egging just deploy and maybe don't deploy more than one maybe bathrooms you can deploy more now if you if you just deploy that first one over and over again you get more. Ap Than if you try to the ICE. Honestly think that's what she does. She knows how to throw and win to throw. And and she finds a COUPLA frogs. That are pretty tenacious than and she'll take him on one against three or two and so they're racking up points but she's racking up twice as many I get a spot so where really combat is occurring. If you can just stay in kind of like the edge of these splash damage where everything is getting out. But no one is sitting there actively trying to recapture it and you just keep playing down resonator 's and my knuckles and going to get like the knuckle tattoo or is just like plus six to five and that's six hundred twenty five. Ap Let's go that's right that's we'll have to do a whole video on that because it sounds like we got some plans while they're in in some people on that but let's hear about the Spoofer Spoofer. There's a thing we we had the. What was it the ingress plus plus or the Ingraham that was the plaza was out for a while and they got dude. Yeah now I tell me more. I don't see that there's any legal stuff and I am vain. I don't know if you've heard about this or not But I just I just Kinda ran across it and evidently it is kind of like I guess you'd say but more for spoofing it. It's it's thing was well. We can put you in any location you want. You can play any of these. Location Games But it was interesting. I ought take a look at that and right in the Tien download it. You know actually I. I can't use it because it's for a fruity phone and use a fruity phone. I use You know your android phone. Evidently it's just just apple phones but it is interesting that They were complaining about. It's getting real tough to make this work with any of NYNEX projects and they're asking for all to help them. I guess test drive some of their stuff and up at the top of the page. It states it is not safe to use ice blue for for PC TO SPOOF. Pogo Ingress and wizards unite so all at work. They've been doing on the scanner to get rid of Spoofer. Evidently is having some effect. And I think I've noticed less spoofing in at least in our area I don't know about other places. Wish I could say the same about everyone was going to say. I think the the amount of the volume of spoofing that I hear about a little bit different. So our fleet. Here's hoping that it's positive. Change I think if they can get banned quicker is going to help. Because the amount of time between like account creation when it's out there running amok and banning the account like that needs to be short if they can fine tune whatever algorithm is is causing the flag to automatically remove those individuals. Yes please yeah but that you want to make sure that you go real slow about that. 'cause you you really don't want it to go overboard and and you know start. Banning a bunch of people like what we had was that six eight months ago and we just had a whole bunch of bands all of a sudden. Yeah it was. It was right about the same time as is Ingress plus plus the lawsuit. I think we're talking about that. And some of those. You don't know about some of those that you know. It's not like the people who aren't cheating. We're GONNA go. Oh yeah they got me at least most of them are it'd be like Oh no. I wasn't doing me. Why can't you all these false bans? You know so you never know to like how bad that was right. It just be. They got a lot of people off plus plus or or other things similar at the same time they can't sped up to but I can't say I know how bad it was remember. I was banned for like ten fifteen days. Well I got back but yeah I I can see it being a mistake and I understand it completely. You know you're trying to make it so that vein doesn't have to stay up all night and that's what I was going to say is I you know with them going after the Spoofer is that make it more difficult kind of on the back. End Code and that side It could be an uptick in and people getting banned because it's harder for them to disguise it that was the big thing with the plus plus made it so it was almost impossible to actually detect. They were spoofing because it was so good. And and and I take this from a guy in town that I swear must have been using it because he kinda stopped playing right after it got banned and all of his. His friends quit playing at the same time and it was just like all the time. If you timed between portal take downs. It would be exactly what Google would tell. You would be drive time and if you know your areas you know those are close. But they aren't always like right on the money especially at certain times and so I think it made it much more difficult to actually detect. Someone was was spoofing and now when people don't have that tool us as other agents can actually look at those times and they're not going to have the same accuracy that those apps did because they would just they would move like you're driving or walking and things like that instead of just boom. You're in a new place now. We can see that if they take that portable way different times and so then they're going to get reported much faster so the stuff I was talking about. I think that it said that you could move at a certain speed or a walking speed. So but yeah. Evidently they've they've got their number and oxytocin can't really say his name. The guy that was way outside. That may not be at work. Is he supposed to be in the Philippines said that Spoofing did reduce there but they're still numerous incidents and evidently. There's not much moving in Montana but then again there's not much in Montana so yeah so and I think is is agents and stewards of the game. Ingress it's a good time to go. Niantic really good job like this is what we want is players for you to take care of these other things and not on the back end. Make it horrible for us As as players with you know increase speed like but maybe there are issues. We'll we'll talk about that. When we get to the patch notes or the release notes The patches will come later so also celebrating the women history month. Ingram has posted some short information for some Female agents for Hashtag women of Ingress. So you can check that out on the the twitter's I'm not sure if they're on facebook or not on twitter so the and I saw a page on facebook. Facebook as well so go go check those out and read about what what these agents have been doing in information about the stories of of the things. They've they've run into what they find most memorable about ingress and there's a a nomination form and of course your worship. I made a small one badly. It Dot L. Y. Slash ladies capital. I capital L. I want heroes getting the fooling putting chat. I should have looked at that. The owning little link and I think they have another link somewhere else. It's a short link but other Lady Player. Maybe we need to get Lady Anthrax and Zely belly to it that up and and put in their stories so can we nominate them. I don't know if we can nominate them or not. I don't know maybe you have to say you're a lady Email address. You're codename name for the agent of your nominee. We can nominate them. You go so yeah. We can nominate them so I don't know that I wanNA nominate a green agent so I might not that makes you jerk. Should pray you resistance. Ages you cannot. There are a couple. I mentioned earlier tonight. She needs to go in the hall of fame. So I'll put her in there so really cool. I I like seeing Ni- antique Take the time to to celebrate their community and sorry. I'm getting images in the video for the podcast listeners. You'll see these or go to the the twitter's or the facebooks and you can see all of it there so it's like a couple of paragraphs of what they what they like are their most memorable times playing ingress so not war stories in most cases most of them were talking about the great people. They've run into and the things I remember. So so speaking of War Stories. We had a little release ingress. Two point four one and then subsequently point two three and four hoops fix oops fix development. That's that's good. Yeah so We've added feature. I say we as in ingress in general but NIANTIC added the feature. Actually their developers added the feature and anyway it's a portal scanning which comes with a whole slew of new things namely badges or medals. Which is the scout metal which is a wolf? Apparently right so we'll get into that in a moment but they also updated the UI and added the boosts category. It's new icon inventory carousel and it's going to support things like the beacons and fractures and I'm sure New things that that's a term that I wasn't really familiar with new. Might just been me but boosts I mean I always knew that those items were there but I never saw them as a as a classification use. So it's nice that they kind of give them their own weapons and boosts I just thought they were miscellaneous. Yeah terrifies me. Because I believe I've been seeing that lately in best fiends nearby play best teams anyway. They ended this new thing. That was some kind of boost where it's like you pay your money and we'll get you through this level bathroom like telling listening to podcasts. Because I'm pretty sure of her. Best fiends advertise like a bazillion times. Yeah Yeah Everywhere. Startling going into like hey raid shadow legends. It's everybody's favorite mole game. No it's not the best genes I end me. I could use some more Free goodies from France. Anyway also. They fixed some bugs which is always good. They fix the store sync error on startup. Are they also the portals appearing faded or dim which now they're super bright and Sometimes I confuse them for resistance. Portals is just me. I think that might be you wait. What do I see? I'm colorblind a little bit. I do it so you blue red blue color blind. I guess I get shades of blue. An purples your green agent. It Helps I. Don't see of blue properly for a reason. Also in the settings menu check boxes on some of the items may initially appear like they Did Not save when you check them and unchecked them but they want to assure us that they are saved when you exit in restart ingress so it's really important. Do that whole restart shenanigans and Like we were mentioning the two for one release point whichever one was paused due to missing translations as it was coming out. I. I'm not sure like how much that was but I can only imagine if I opened up ingress there was no text in you know in English. It might make it more difficult to play. So yeah definitely and I don't know I think it was a couple of releases back but one of the things that they did. I I just love a good design. It happens and I'm like why didn't I think of this? That when you have a portable. Has you know four five things coming out of it instead of one one want one. They're like Hey. Let's put all three at one time and it will put up three more and they won't put up one more and I've got seven in three passes instead of seven passes so whoever did that design thumbs out. That was a great idea. Speed things way up and there are a bunch of little changes that I've been seeing kind of like that that didn't make the patch notes or maybe it was in a previous release that I didn't but I think the icons on the settings page I guess are what would that page when you see like store. Nominations and that one those are moved right. There's three on each side now instead of like most of them on one side and then like to on the other they move dynamically or at least they're supposed to how often you go. H had gory. So the the the categories themselves were trimmed down that way they were more like comparative to what we had in redacted scanner and then they were initially laid out in a similar way but based on how often you go to certain menus. You'll see a display differently very cool so I'm not a huge fan of because just wanted to know exactly where the menus are adult. I don't want the scanner to the lake. Say This is important to you because gameplay changes so during a first Saturday and might be going into different menus than my normal day to day game play so it just messes with my muscle. Memory order for enlightened. I'm for it enough to to you. Know knocking out of elite for astor astor from back and forth but you're talking about parody between prime and redacted. I mean I think they're getting really close and they're adding things but there's still one thing missing and and it's I don't think it's something that a lot of people use but I kind of used it in. That's the sonic landscape. You know the ability that you know if you were walking on a trail or something it used to be you could hear. Oh I'm passing a resistance portal or I'm passing an enlightened portal or that's Kinda near and that's not in there yet. There's there's a lot to this on escape now. I mean the sound effects are really good. But they're still missing a couple of things and so it's all there but it's very muddled so how was that? It's not as clear like I will definitely agree that I was one of those people that I always play with. Sound on And I like being able to just hear hear the portals silica from driving or something in the scanner just open I can hear through the car speaker or whatever or if I'm walking and I'm not exactly looking at the phone I can hear it in. Its with the static noises and a couple of the other sound features that are added in there now. It kind of bleeds over the useful information that you get out of other sounds but there's actually a lot more now so you can you can hear when resonator are being attacked by someone else you can visually see recharging another thing so there's a lot there. It's a lot there was there. Isn't there's as much as it was. I guess we could say but yeah yeah I I don't I mean I don't have the sound online all the time so I do not have the sound on it all when I played so. I don't even realize that that's change. Yeah well I know when I'm out walking trails or or something. I like to make sure that I'll you know I'll put my phone head down so it goes into battery saver mode so you can't see anything but if you can hear than you can say okay. I I need to pop at soccer backup and see where I'm at. How close am I to that portal so portals in Range Orlin range? Also there were some unannounced items that Some agents reported in the ingress community community DOT INGRESS DOT COM agent. Mr I O so seventy reported that cliff hacking is missing some sound files. Nobody notice that. Lift hacking at Not Not on Android and then agent. Hide Hydra. Linski reported that if ambient sound is above zero percent it shuts down other affect. Sounds so maybe that's a combination of that? That was missing up another agent folks out and see platform specific. That might be an iphone. Only issue like kid be and if people are having this issue We recommend you go to the community and let them know there so they can you know work on it and kind of narrow down what phone type and is having the issues so they can fix it and then agent roster walled reported that the bug marked is fixed insufficient. Xm Heroin Xm is available is still happening is ever going to go away. That specific bug I think has been with Ingram's since almost the inception of the original scanner. So it's not a prime specific thing so it's just feature parody exactly. Yeah no no it was if I remember correctly that bug has something to do with the interaction between Xm with the server and your client so my guess is what we're work that they did on the servers that they had to go and backtrack. That is just going to be something that kind of always. We're trying to fix it in true program where you have to say. That's that's a feature not a bug then then you have to sell it. Yeah it's time for you. You didn't need us that anyway. You need to save that. Xm Well it. I don't know if you've noticed any other things with this release or even the last released but this week I have noticed that I have portals that. Don't show up on the scanner and the the last release and it may have been the one before that was having similar issue but I could click on one Portland as soon as I left. That port of the other one would appear. And it's almost like it would refresh. I assume it's it's caching issue but this time now it's just like it's gone and it doesn't seem to want to appear for an extended time you know a few minutes and I've even had the you know reopened close and then reopen the APP down. We've noticed around here that a lot of lagging in the Intel map especially for us and I saw that one of the guys in the area took a little video and basically he was like. Oh look I can flip bortles in any you. Just Click on the board will never change for Blue Green. Like how the heck are you doing that? Well you click on the link it refreshes it and it took it so long to figure out that it in flipped or change. That look like he said. I'm going to make this one green going. Yeah this this was something that was kind of happening. During the heck's athlons we're noticing a little bit more of it after the events immediately ended where portal state was not updating correctly. So there are a couple of like immoral portals that were occurring injured efan play areas where media artifact portal's really seem to be affected disproportionate to everything else where you would go to neutralize a media portal that looked like it had one resonator hanging on and to an employer would appear blue into a resistance player would appear green and neither of US could actually kill it so we have. We had one in town. That was kind of left over from the generator. Made through a link knowing that you know they'd all decayed and then when I got on on Intel of like with I just crossed over seven lakes and stay like after two days. So yeah it has its issues. I I think it's better now. It's not quite as bad if you do find one. Just send me the link and we can. We can get the ghostbusters on it. And I think Cameron ciphers is correct. That is definitely a feature to NPR inventory of Burgers as you think. You're destroying the ENEMY FACTIONS PORTAL. But really it's just neutrally should've been putting resonator on anyway to the portal scanning stuff so this is kind of the biggest feature they added. It's it's often feature. That's going allow level sixteen agents and that includes recurs agents as well in the US To Upload Portal. Scans and keep in mind. This is not a feature that everybody's going to get. This is going to be slowly rolled out and I am not even seen anyone with it yet so neither I. It may not have actually been rolled out to anyone yet. I don't need a supported device so my understanding. Is that if you have a supported device in your on the current version you should see Puerto scanning underneath the like edit screen for portal going range in the portal or go to the menu. And then if you have a supported device you shouldn't be able to do portal scans. I'm not sure if they flip the switch just yet but The latest information post pretty much said like if your devices supported you should now be able to go and see this but it's a very small list of devices that are supported to my current knowledge. And there's lift out there right. I haven't put one out there so it's going to take us kind of getting that list together. Yeah what exactly is a portal scan. So get get thing you ask so finishing this the Puerto SCAN IS GONNA record information. images Recorded images. That says this is kind of like snapshots. Kind of getting Almost a video But this is going to be used for like a our stuff and to make it more three so they need a lot of pictures as we're GONNA get lighting conditions the time and location of the scan in that way they can change things because they'll know how it looks in different light and they'll be able to shadows and things like that and some of this is assumptions over. This is what they said. The shadows things out. The rest is what they said. Also how the mobile device moved during the Pearl Skin and mobile device and the camera specs. You'll be able to take multiple scans at a portal and like a vein of saying it. It's under the edit menu. So if your account is eligible in your devices sported you'll be able to see a scan portal button after tapping on a portal and then tapping at it. And I haven't done this while. Add a portal. But I tried it like remote. Viewing a portable and going in editing. And it wasn't there but they could have some kind of location detection and want you right there next to it. I don't know yet untested year right now so if I go at it I have no have no portal's scanning no scanning do you have? Oh you're right next to one right. I mean we shouldn't a lot like it's going to a Google spear photos. Fear that you're going to get kind of a three sixty at the ground location so my understanding of it said like multiple agents can submit multiple. Scans for the same portal. So it's not like with the photo where it's like. Okay just had that one photo and there's a photo album attached to the portal like more. Scans at a portable acquires. More information that they'll have to build out any of the A. R. Stuff that they're doing that. Yeah this is like pure data gathering like I don't think this will be viewed in the game. Currently like you do a thing the image. I think it's just going to their servers and they're going to do there and against with it and it may not even be used for ingress in the future. Maybe so I wonder if it would be used also kind of verification and. I don't know how much you want to do this but I know there's a lot of bortles that the object at the portal is tied to gone. You know those statues down the downtown that you know have changed other statues or been removed or like the Chicago nominally where they were all the Chicago horses and I only saw one horse left so I don't know whether they'll use that as a way to verify that you know all that portal's really not there anymore I I'm sure they yeah like like they could use it but You know they were working on that other tool. That was the three D. Wasn't a shooter or some kind of there's a whole nother game thing. They were working on. Yeah you like you like us. The air delay shooting running around inside the building that we were doing like laser tag with it. Yeah and they were talking about it at the time that they wanted to get data to be able to do Portals on different planes so it wouldn't just like you could be in you know a five storey building and you could actually have portals on top of each other but they were on different levels and I think that's part of you know like when we see the the layers coming out up and over that that was kind of in there too. Well we could do layers like that. Now if they're coming out at different and maybe we screwed that up by people saying they didn't like that but but other games might have some things but going along with that. The reason why you want to do this regardless of what the data for what is being used for is there's a metal involved and this is the metal that goes all the way to onyx. Which is a big deal. It's an you know we had one of these kind of got what you said. We needed a new badge. What you said that what about two shows shows ago. We need a new badge. There's you knew badge. I love new badges stinking badges so you could get the Scout Medal. Which is I think. We showed it earlier but Bronzes fifty scans and silvers to fifty. Gold is thousand platinum three thousand and Onyx six thousand. We're going to have a race for this one. I have to buy a new phone. I hit sixteen. I well no I got. This sounds like a good plan. Yes let's do a race so gooney gets a bit of lead. I may be iphone. Only I'm screwed too. So who knows? We'LL SEE I. I assume it has to do with like a Arcor and the other a are like thing. Do what Ding Ding Ding. Do you go. You figured it out so and I guess that's if you can play pokemon go and do the new stuff in it then. That's probably a good phone right. Because they had that kind of advanced they are. I think you you wanted to be looking at phones. That support Air Corps or whatever the apple a Colin is whenever the apple core. What kind of amplicor you that when you eat an apple so Also they're going to be supporting this possibly with a R I maybe multiple so not a but non-competitive Cross faction walk events to meet with agents answer questions demonstrate. How To upload high-quality Portal's Scans and they will be releasing details soon at some point. Oh yes soon. I'll see what you did there and speaking of soon I'm going to be posting images. I just checked in there looking at the other thing. I have like four this time and I don't even know when I got him. Did I get those all today? Got Four I think. Should I not have for me? They are war. Aathroom view must defeat my perpetual Thanh and the one part. I think the must defeat Nuclear Calvin. Yeah that's the Calvin one. Yeah that's where I knew. Phew those were right after a few those during hikes. If you're immediately following it so they're all old this point. Thanks raining on parade their aides. What about what about the ring? One having to oblige the one during the axes while I think old one to. We're all don't even have that one. I just saw somebody else at it. I did actually get one that I got within the first twenty people that that submitted. I didn't see your name on the list by the way UNI but I don't even look for vein. He needs to do that. I would if I was ever. Add a portal win live drops were occurring. I'm generally they're tractor work or I think during during the weekend with the heck saffron either driving or just not paying attention when that was occurring. I actually I was on my way to work and I was going into late and I was going through towns Bing Bing Bing Bing Bing and like oh I got one right and so I have no clue what portal drop any of these like. I couldn't tell you if if it was you know cost my faction I guess and it would be like one out of one hundred portals that I wouldn't pass today so with. There's we have a message in here are ninety. Posted a message congratulating a resistance agent on finding the jury Tesla so were they the first agent to find it. Does that why they this was alive? Drop right so the with the physical ones that one person gets it so willing to that and you can tweet them congrats as well and if you want. I didn't even know this was a thing. But apparently there's a proclamation of discovery in the Tesla community for him that Posted basically. Hey when you find these posted tweeted as a social media drive thing and they just updated it and that's why side with a request of please add One or more of these hashtag which has hashtag Ingress Tesla or ingress actual gameplay footage to the posts and they made send you are they re tweet it or they may do stuff. We'll link to it and you can decide if you want to proclaim your discovery in a tweet ish or facebook ish way. I'm making new. Turn affords we. We ended up just ended round seven. Is that right? Is it ended or is it still going on? Because they're doing the voting. I think about scores for seven. And I think that it's I think enlightened up the most points in that particular one but I think that resistance is still in the lead and thank God nemesis is trailing behind so I don't remember the exact scores but I remember that They did make a pretty good job for for the enlight. So and There's something happening at sixteen hundred day. Is it sixty? Ut See yeah. Well that's why I was thinking there was still going on because they were saying that today. The rest of The ten test. Ray will be announced. Yeah what is the ten twenty three? So is that round. Aiders that part around seven non. Because it's more coming more or soon but yeah I think if I remember we're about halfway through it is about right. Yes for placed You know test her on the board where we're a little over fifty percent. Yeah so they're going to be related releasing the information on the next ten taking the tap and just kinda like slowly opening it up a little bit more slow dribbles more. So does that mean. That's eight ten. They're going to talk about. Potentially I would assume if I hardly behind I do not know if they let me read this is this is from the truth seeker himself and and I just don't understand like like If the rounds over like so they're still doing predictions and stuff though so let me read this in. Y'All can make sense of it to me because I have a moron so truth seekers after a whole series of mind exercise we have finally made it to verification time for round seven. This was on March third in edited on March fourth. We have fifteen test rain. Total the test rate live. Drops have already been verified. Please make your predictions wisely verifications. For the rest of the ten tests array will be announced on March fifth at sixteen hundred. Ut See the tethered hand has agreed this time. Those who wish to withdraw their chance of making predictions do state their decision in a comment in the appropriate threat before March fourth. Twenty three hundred to see all. It's already bad so you can't do that anymore anyway. You will have until March sakes so that's tomorrow are soon because it's eighteen hundred Z. And when this to make your placement predictions so that's placement predictions for round seven right. Yes those are sentenced. Yeah those have been found. They just haven't been placed. Okay so now. Does that mean those ten or seven or eight so confusing or should be sending an okay. Yeah we had a thing in an ingress. That doesn't have some confusion in it again. Five of those jobs and how many of those live drops your you on. Why why why many I have total through the whole time zero? Okay so also something that I noticed while I was looking at the Ray Tesla stuff today was apparently. There's badges on the form for Different tax rates. Stuff that yes. Yeah those were all God. Yes around there. I discover verified so there. Yeah there's I discover so you were verified as I discover for at least a one test ray. Then there's one for discoverer you were verified is the discover for at least one test ray. Does that mean you were like the the top three? Okay top three. Who got that okay? So that's why I don't have it even though I posted that I found one because I discovered one but I wasn't a discover makes sense. Okay tracker you have made at least to post administrating your understanding of Tesla directives and or helping agents new to the investigation. So do you get that just for kind of helping in the forms and giving info or just posting images that you got it a couple of times or all that all of the above kind of a little bit slow too that whatever Antic teams is helpful. Tell people so. I think you know answering questions at other agents might have on different things but so I wonder if that's all manual or if you just go in and Post Forum manual awarded. I BELIEVE YOU'RE NOT GONNA. You'RE NOT GONNA lose out a way to automatically get that. We'll see I'M GONNA go post twice. Everybody should go post twice. This is just a test. Make a thread that says agency can test. That's fine. I've been banned off forms before they can do it again. But Yeah Post test and see but you know it gets people on the forums. That's great go there and say hi ask about if you have questions about the Tesla do it. They're like start a thread about it. And your question and I think that'll help other people who have the same questions that don't WanNa post there as well anyway. That's that and I swear. We had more news. I had more news in the introduction. I did you. I don't know we can let it go. We have the test Latian. We talked about that. Check heck that athlon check. We have the ICE spoofer check. We talked about that. We had The new scout metal which was kinda part of the Puerto scanning so. Yeah so I guess we. We hit everything And women of Ingress so Did we miss anything? Just getting really efficient and the release. Okay so I guess. That's that's that unless he has anything else will give him the code a code. You remember when you get old Coco. What's the passcode? For this episode of the Agent Academy Number. Seventy seven is a women of Ingress A and you can go submit this now on the website and it has been verified by Eighty Gooney guy but wait until it really works Jay. Jay Blaze comes back with it. Hey now I resemble that remark I think I think that was something to say about me screwing up in the past. I do want to say thank you for everyone in the chat. It is good. See all here. There's a whole slew of people and If you've this is something that's kind of cool if you have Amazon prime for free if you haven't used it in another twitch channel you can subscribe for free and that means you get all the icons for the channel for free For a month and you can just Redo that every month if you like these. I'm going to do some icon Bam And we'll probably change those out over time Matter of fact I know we probably will soon because the channel name actually then this kind of just some paperwork for the agent academy we may be changing to an overall channel name. 'cause there's some other shows that might be happening soon that are non ingress related and Anyway we'll let everyone know when that happens with that. We may change icons fit multiple shows and things like that but you also get academy points which may change to some other kind of points. But then we'll do the same stuff you get those just for watching anything on the channel and they just pick up You get more if you're subscriber But then you can do stuff like I like my message. Can I do that even though I don't? I lied it day to day and stuff like that. So you can make your message highlights and it's basically free. You have to listen to us. That's the downside right. So far points to K- points now Bam? It's going to make a badge. We're still waiting for Jay. Jay Blaze actually used as points to get a badge on the website but He's got a design it so as soon as we get that Info will make a badge and then he can give out a code to anyone in the world to get a badge on. The site can episode. Bet I'll call is that. He's demand or he's the woman of Ingress See. Yeah see how I I I see where you'd I think what you did. There pulled it all around anyway. I the way the badge works. I tried it. Yeah I can't believe daybyday blazed. Tell us I think that's it. I don't have anything else. I'm good for awhile. Okay well everybody get out there. Move and we'll see y'all next week or Greenfield's in my in myself so I can come up beautiful. You wish for what what? What cell is that sleep? Put the anchors outside of the cell. Well Y- don't anchor in like Boston and throw away that. Why not though if you can. Oh this sounds like a chat it does. I think we got some code so I will say the last time that I was BAFTA over well was it. I gotTA give him that. That was like my Sixty million AP that are not ab Mu Day. Like a quarter of the United States. That was fun. I was just a piece theft. They'll it was fun falls. You are a tool like that triangle guy will be right so anyway there's the challenge Greenfield in the cell. I didn't hear yoursel earlier. Juliet Nine Juliet nine. So we're like pain in the same column right I'm just a little south And we'll give some codes away. So screen shots your your Total fields there. Whatever and we'll have do J. verify it with smirk. Tears play said he did verified code words. I thank you once again. Now for the third time next break bye-bye.

Welcome to the agent academy downloading latest Intel. Package welcome back was getting worried about you. Number Seventy Nine reported on March twenty seven twenty twenty. I'm agent Gooney Guy. Age Do J. J. in an interesting fifty centers. If he's he's he's a little far away like Australia. Like nine o'clock in the morning there. So that's right. We're glad you're here. I was tiny. Your time is relative. They also are you. Are you anywhere near Adelaide? I mean if you don't want to mention where you are. That's fine well Westminster so it's kind and almost the oxide of the country from everywhere else in we. We could with three thousand kilometers. Fields Skull grow units. What do you call those like? I haven't candidate loose units. Kim Greely units all units. There that works that works. What are they will? So we've got some news to talk about and I'm sure if you've ever watched videos on Youtube fifty-seven sells videos fan fields and like all this too much math for me crazy like how to really maximize fields in a bunch of cool stuff so go check it out if you haven't seen it. You're living in Iraq. If that's the case and thanks for the subscription their Arctic revel. It's good to see your your name and have a bunch of people in chat so that's often to you. I I'M GONNA go ahead and start with my week. It's a very short week just more work but also I did get the scan my first portal. It happened to be a church. The church sign. It was the church Jan while actually scan the whole thing. I got probably a quarter way around the building before the game ended and I guess I can send multiple scans but I started with that one and then I haven't done any more so really working that Badge Ele. I smaller church like no titan statues and and things like that but Zebo Gazebo. Iphone doesn't support little scanning currently and with everything going on the world right now. I don't think I'm going to be looking at doing portal. Skin's a little bit of time. Potentially what else have you been doing this weekend? I know you've probably done some vanguard Steph. Watts it work. It's it's pretty much it's been work and just trying to maintain sanity with all of those social distancing and everything else going on so do a lot of you know Brooks in around my apartment complex and trying to hit the back roads just to avoid people and there are supporters on that route so I am still able to get a couple of accidents and trying to get some extra power cubes because right now it's kind of like deciding which I wanNA maintain is is most of my ingress game. Play right now is just making trilog the strategic things that I wanNA keep up or charged and like hiking. Portal's his oddly enough. Everybody seems to be flocking to the trails. Making it to where it makes sense. You don't want to be anywhere near the trails. Are you seeing a lot of spoofing? Since people can't get out they decided to do it that way out. It doesn't really seem to be more than more like a Hagia put it that way. I'd say it's been pretty satisfied with reports coming in so there isn't a big increase. Hopefully I did know. I thought maybe people would try that since I can't get out and they thought well maybe I'll just do it this way there was I heard. I don't think there was ever posted but there was there was like a Polka Mongo campaign. Can't remember what the name of that petition cited where it was like niantic allows disprove during the worst. Now I have been still doing some car. Grassing I still am travelling to and from work so I'm being very careful. Of course we're kind of a health provider so and putting in computers and making sure that they don't lose networking stuff because that's their Gatien so throughout a couple more layers on feels nothing like nothing like fifty seven sal does but now keeping keeping my little cell alive and throughout a couple of prime tips episodes figured people were just caught in the house or looking for something they get so they would probably listen to that other than that. It's not like you said hasn't been a whole lot but it's been a lot of rain here lately so I am feeling I may be gets good. Make out and do a little bit and just like you. I'm planning I've got some trails that I could hit and I can stay away from people I hope but it's small enough down. Its rule enough that I could walk around down. Nobody within that size is definitely winning in terms of that advantage to people. Come what about fifty you sell would you? Would you get this week? Yeah well these crazy. English found only thinking. If you've mentioned if he was really homebound what can they actually do and crazy organs like they could get together with other agents who have keys for their own couch portals and so forth but I should say not? A lot of people have couch. Portal's great ideas they get In terms of my own self will be working from home since last week. My company's been good that they don't pretty on the ball with this whole thing and timetables ballgame kickstarter just finished and now's traction put that ballgame together. Get it up. I've got a couple of teachers. They're looking forward to that. I can't use it for like a month. But they're looking forward to it. That's great all right under the news. Yeah sorry I'm Kinda riding the down here on some audio issues but Yeah Yeah Yeah. That's the news. Well today. I think about noon central standard time. So that would probably be what middle of the night for you. Fifty seven in I did some back in maintenance and they said it would last for a couple of hours and it may caused them. Increased latency in your scanner. Of course people to let him know what was going on. So I saw some agents reporting that they were unable to to deploy portal's very slow response and I think about four thirty central standard time. Some agents we're getting some four thirty some five three years so that tells me that they were working on some things especially the Intel. They noted that the engineers that said that the Intel should be better based on some changes. They made so. I popped into the Intel map about that seven o'clock and it seemed to be happier but I didn't put it through paces of changing things to see of it catches those changes. It seemed to be good for me. I haven't really seen anything because most of my plays normally on the way to work and on the way home from work and working from home has really put a dent in that. Because by the time I've done with work it's like time to start dinner and then after that it's getting late and it's like well then I will be out way too late to figure out and do ingress and So I haven't been playing much lately. I need home portal. They need to get in the item in the game to give us well. Just just grab some Gazebo and move it into your yard and then rotated it was private property though. Okay move it out on the sidewalk next year. House pavilion here lakes beautiful. I'll just run down to the hardware store staying six feet away from everyone decoding they do have the decoding cutting challenges and go on. Is that right? Is there something going on there? Is that right? Well I I saw something about two pieces left so there must be. There must be working on something. I haven't haven't really kept up with the television as much as I have. But evidently there's still waiting on round eight predictions and then they're figuring that around nine. I'll start after those come out so I don't know whether the tether band is stuck at home or whether they're just holding off on that for some reason or another but one of the things that agents could definitely do without having to go out into the field. I believe a throw the hand sanitizers on l. The debtor Dan. Yeah wash those tethered hands before they touch two three. That's that probably is where it's at the portal. Wash your hands. Wash your hands. I wash my hands so much the back of my hands or read the moisture is and I got to start doing that stuff but it will be the next thing to show Joel Toilet paper. I still don't understand the toilet paper thing well. Somebody explained that to me the other day when people panic they get the basic materials that they need and evidently toy vapors very basic and so everybody feels they have to have it like I kinda wish it could be. You Know Panic. Buying Power Fugit. Balk right down micro pack but if the Big Lake. You know. Forty six pack. Power accused were each power to has a little bit more in it. It's like this power. Cube is a little weight. But it's got like two hundred exit more than the regular power because it's in the bonus pack lays there you go yes double. That's nothing I mean they they. They've all sorts of things that they allow you to do extra resonator and cut down on the time but I don't think I've ever seen him do a boost on on a power back. We said like increase drop rate on before and things of that not only tweak to the actual no. I think if we were going to get anything it would probably be increase drop rate. Because that's probably something that's a little easier on the fly but I think it should make it fun. Just give it give it a random charge so you may get one like ten percent charging you're screwed and one that's like one hundred and thirty percent charge. Your bonus hyper before us right and they get free packs out all the time in Harry Potter. Like just every other week. It's like. Hey here's a bonus pack with nearly what's this foreign and I guess it's whatever events going on at the time you're ready for it so they could do that within growth. I would like to see what they've done. Similar for some of the anniversary events where you can to discourage multiple accounts from being able to redeem Mike mass amount of codes. Just have it set up to where if you go into the in restorer. There's like a daily number of cubes or weekly total or something that you can redeem from just zero caddick in you just so you can do that and get small amount of cubes keep going keep. Something's charge but I guess we'll we'll see what happens with that. I think right now just the. Ar Gaming space in general is kind of struggling across the board to figure out how to adjust to the situation. And I think ingress is no exception. Where so much of our game is go out. Travel places people and right now. Isn't that the best thing that you should do that? That's right yeah I. You're probably right there. You know that you're talking about changing the games and stuff like that. I don't know whether it might help on. It seems like we see Spoofer that I think what they do is to get those forever codes and then just run a bunch of those coach through in that way they can get get that spoofing account up to like level four something and work a little bit more and get it up to five. And that's when they start to use it so I don't know whether they need to put like a slow mode on those forever coats. He knew one a day which I know is the yourself anniversary year when they released the historic codes that you get zero caddick matter Your account had to be like a certain amount of time Aged that way you couldn't just create like a new account all the items transfer them off so the selling a similar. I'm done before we take the AP off all the codes completely now forever. It's have had that at a p stripped so it might be incorrect on some of that but I do know that there was like back I think during the first Navarro there was like a huge avalanche codes and what it was was a lot of the forever Coz it had been retooled to not have the AP in but because of that they became active for pretty much everybody again and speaking of active or not active for everyone facto was released clock the city. Yesterday I think lead ballooned in it and I don't know issue but when I went to download it and it was like well. I don't see it on the store and finally went back to their twitter. And it's like we're corona virus. It's the reason why it's not up on Google yet. Now he's out there for IOS. I assume it is because they just said that it was a Google playstore issue. Yeah that's yeah that's where I tended I. I went to their site so they had like. Oh you know sign up if you want to hear more details and then could not get the APP so it was like well I tried. I am hoping Sony got a recording or has footnote somewhere kids. I'm interested to see if they didn't lower related with that. So if you're out there and you know if you know Lord teasers with that police says something little dino it's it's so on brand that fits really well so don't worry about it. We'll get get into the description I saw. It looks like they said it's going to be describes it. As an accidental case of mistaken identity lands to clueless young journalist in the crosshairs of secret agents cult leaders like that and the global conspiracy hidden under the veil of everyday life. So now we're a cult evidently seems like your resistance. Call you work like a cult but yeah so I guess. Maybe that's where some of the people talked about. Maybe it was a reboot of ingress. It's what is it not ingress obsessed theory my theory so you got the number right. You got the two people right. I don't know if it's going to be. Ladies are not a so something about empowering viewers to become part of the story and secret codes includes will lead viewers to explore their world and intercept intelligence left by a mole in the series. Sounds like a drought. I think they're gonNA look for Co located portals. That's theory that I worked on have been able to buy one of those. I've been looking but they are in the ones that should be. There are no longer. There have been moving. That's terrible do that doing that's right. So what are the predictions? How long it's going to be before we see. Vikto roll out a if it's already out on IOS somehow grab it and put it on Youtube and you'll be able to see it. Yeah we just may not be able to vote in the polls or whatever. The interaction is they have So that might take some time because it may be like click on this or that like while you're watching the video it'll be interesting to see one day and hope from the Chat Room Pixel Bite says that it From what they know the first three clips were reused clips from twelve eighteen. Been where he found the phone. Oh wow so like the really old clips from the the first investigation board was posted. So Jacqueline one of the light twelve eighteen. Not a researcher just kind of like. Well he's complicated. His background is complicated by Da Vinci. Phone guys this. The other day I remember now Ritchie Phone Guy. Yeah so he gets the prototype. Ingress scanner that Deborah manages to smuggle out during Epiphany Night Race. It all heart because he gets it in like a used phone sale on Ebay or something starts ringing on its own and Oh yeah statu doing things like this. Drone swoops in late starts photographing. You'll see guys in the suits in the background talking into their hands so so I did. Send them a message. 'cause THEY WANNA get your show on Fiqh though so who knows. Maybe you'll see the agent Kaddoumi podcasts on FECTA. And you'll be able to poke us in the face while we're while we need man put out one other thing that you can do without having to go outside and let's share your favorite portal. I guess the post in in the community forums so starting a couple of days ago Fifteenth They WanNa hear about your most interesting portal's encountered and put it in your favorite social media or keys and shared a screen shot of your favorite portal. So what's in it for you other than just being great looks like there's going to be exclusive? Pasco that could be redeemed by two. So you get to share So they ask you to put out a screen shot a short not white special. You your agent name. I think they said codename tag it with my favorite portal and maybe not an Intel link. Then they'll start I guess it's just a good way to kind of get people talking. Now people out there on social media that may not know what ingress? What does this thing? I don't understand? And so maybe they can generate a little more interest that way So I think the policy the pass code come out Macbeth or something like that day table. Sixteen excuse me. This is when the passcodes might start dropping so you won't get them right away. So yeah because the few passcodes. I've gotten through their social media. Stuff have been pretty decent passcode. I don't know if that will change with Andrew sending them out but We'll see maybe vein sending them out now. Right hand has made me into an Avatar on occasion where I've had to send out some reward passcodes agents so it could happen again. Just activated Agent Academy Alison passcodes. Goodbye might send him during the show and just a secret milk who knows the passcode and the jets. Have anybody knows it was a dead drop or alive drop. I Dunno social distant drought news. You're complaining about people chasing the last drop so we really bad this time. Just stay in Max. Deploy Rain Steinway. Sojourner badges anybody relying upon the recharge or are you like me paranoid. You're going to have just to keep it alive. Just in case though no soldiers been out dead. Anyway actually yeah. I'm still euro right now even with recharge so actually can it concerned about that because it'd be recharging daily so that's so you don't think it's working or do you think it's something they'll do later. I might missed a date somewhere there. So we'll try to take a closer look at it it's been it's been crazy the last couple of days. Needless to say I have just not trusted. I've been I've been hacking portal. One close by so I can do that. So that's that's if you're if you're on fifteen hundred days you kind of don't really want to take the nature can before you try another one thing. I haven't really done is taken the time to really workable. Because now the charge rate is are the. It's like ninety seconds and then you can get sixteen hacks before you burn it out so cool down second sixteen acts you could fill your inventory. Pretty Darn quick good. I I did that on the the Puerto Portals game because it's basically been the only portal. I've been able to go to Just because they had to run to work and grab something Before I kept myself inside and unfortunately it was a neutral portal and not throw any bones and I couldn't really get it up higher than And I didn't have any AIDS like I am Dr Aids and so it's just like sitting there. Just fill in my inventory with crap more crap and more crap but I got a bunch of keys so I will be thinking. Imagine how many keys you can harvest. That's a great idea. Throw around there and just really feel quick starbursts from in like a month or two and you can get the time down if you throw on those heat sinks in okay. Could you get down to their on some crappy ones and it was down to like thirty seconds. I think pretty low right now. It's fifteen to ten fifteen seconds so I'd say thirty second spot so this is one thing that's been annoying me like when the items pop up like when you're trying to hack something and see the time that you have on it and you're like no. I just want to see the time so I never really got an accurate like okay. It's this long because the time that took was probably so I'd say forty five seconds. Yeah sure if you had to agents and you get loaded up with some pretty rare heat six you could probably get it down. Then move on to the next one won't be really only use a now. Let's your area that you're not just be on opposite sides of the parking lot is you're putting them on my bland. I wanted to talk to one or agents. That's on the other side of the cell and him you know him having a couch portal and me having a couch portal that works but we just can't find that third guy you gotta find that. Third Guy South of the blue and then he just mowed it between you over the weekend. I go on the summer with another agent but it was because of everything it was like we took separate cars an hour and a half drive. I've and then we had a couple of times like hey well we can just drive down to the bottom and it's like why don't just one of us go and it was horrible just because there were so many people in this park where there's never anybody there and I'm like what I'll do Yeah the two sir so I can't really system right away. I haven't made it out to our trails but I imagine that's what I'm going to see the same things I've seen a lot of people walking dogs and things like that. So but we digress. We need to get into the real stuff sell. You are a fielder extraordinaire. Well least is your travels big and and makes them all nice. I like that but the homogeneous fields. Yes what is that all about well? That's that's kind of a attorney what let's if you make. A bunch of land fields usually see different shades of your favorite color within the if you mentioned you've got to be by sliding along along layer along herringbone lighter fields in these ones would be really intense blue green and then listen to go but a homogeneous field homogeneous field. It's every single. Point in that whole region has the same number of less loss. That's technically really difficult thing to do. Yes kind of because it's kind of a random bunch of fields together. You can get a uniform number of letters. That's what that's what these implants you first. You have to understand. How structured because with the traditional ones. If you if you're not making cross links if you don't have doubled puddles then there's really only one structure these can have so. Yeah this the says. Is anyone structure? These can have your large triangle. And that you'll first line runs so everyone's eight hundred units field as long as you've made a field you've made one hundred one layer on US air and you're done maybe thousands of poorly in between and you had improperly. Then you get to leads attuned to make three layers you kind of need each of these smaller triangles. Each of these smaller triangles. Vani to split as well so you've got an extra three puddles in between the and the number of the number of Paul's you need for a number of leads goes up exponentially. I mean. We're all very aware of exponential growth. Now that's unfortunately it's the same thing with hundred union sealed. You won't you won't fall as you need three times as many puddles and five dollar three times until six is three hundred sixty eight. How many hundred and twenty four hundred and twenty fall quarrels? I think it is creepy. Comments from around on around about the three sixty six links and seven mayors would be three times more complicated than that if it could be done and one mistake and you have to like Jarvis just up and that's exactly right. Yeah kind of thing. Nine mistakes committed here. That a single agent from the team can come and stuff. The whole operation on Excu- frogs. You probably do that. Just a single agent from your stuff making rolling in run time and we're playing one of your videos that you have on your youtube where you make a six layer one of these solo. Yes try almost as soon as possible. The reason you can only go to six lands is you need a seeks laws. You need three things one of the portals and you can't do that Sala normally so luckily agent here agent. Ekg Who's actually working also getting ready to save lives a-coming which is fantastic. She she put the extra mode on that. I needed to complete this field and then I stopped it up so I had to flick the call. Why our present sufferings that was time for warning? And how long did it take you to do? The the six layer Took that see six thousand twenty minutes. Six thousand twenty minutes. It would have been for twenty minutes except for the mistake. I made yet just bemoaning confident there. In that clip. Well you should be finished it off your right now. How does that? How does that work out for like Ap As a good AP generator for an agent to really GonNa Genitive. This did this during wip and scored me one point. Seven million just money. Yeah it's even normal times eight hundred thousand. Ap flooding around that's including the catches and so forth. You know it could be more than that. It could be less than that depending what field is not when you star three hundred sixty four fatal. There's a lot of it. Yeah that is and I assume that works out pretty good. Mu For your cell when you do that as well tippy large year. So and I mean I haven't. I haven't seen one that smaller than I think. Seeing one of the smaller than a couple of kilometers across and these are going to be in really dense areas which will be massive anyway so they do tend to six and not the most efficient way to get in you. Simple multi-layered herringbone or something like that. But they do score on the New Year. So if you're looking if you're looking at doing one of these you need a dense portal area that that has some kind of laid out right in some respects. Yes you could enough photos you can find the right layer inside you just have to leave all other portals unused interesting now. I'm curious seem pretty much all of your videos on Youtube but I can't quite remember if there's ever a record discussion smallest six layer so I'm wondering if that's if that's something that anyone's planning on if it's something that anyone does or maybe it could be a challenge. Nearly thirty calling you on boasting about making smallest one and making the biggest one so the biggest thing was about yes. Three thousand six hundred and fifty S. Columba's. I'm not sure that he didn't square miles. I can look at it would be more. Did six feet smaller than six. Eight one thousand four hundred miles to do so and that was about one point four million. Mu In Germany was Jimmy timber by forty eight forty musicians. I remember reading that one day and they they kind of kept it quiet go ahead at all and and everything you'd want anybody to of course mess it up you throw that twice. I have to look it off or something that done a lot of these attended before. They're successful in attempted rape. They must be silent. Many grits tried and knock are done. Told anybody yeah I mean I mean you can. If you're one of those people listening in then you can. You can dust off your accent. Keep the Clarence. If are there any more? Don't play now's a good time for do planning yes. Are there any plans that you have that you've been that you're thinking of doing a video for coming up? There was there was talk a while back of having an international six edging is Field Day in June. But I suspect that's not going to happen so I had a little plan prepared. Well the start of a plan prepared for bat again. You know. That's all that's on hold. Ill dusted-off at some point in terms of videos. Some of the things. I've been thinking about now. Fields how do you make really complicated arrangements of fields? Beautiful something quite cynical but to me just show you know you've you've you've got master over this guy you know how to do. So that's that's that's being that Halloween challenge make a jackal land with no fields. Why is it now? Do you think is it possible to come up with emergence field? That's not the triangle. The classical triangle shape that maybe you can do. I know that you've come up with like two different ones together to come up with a Rambus or something like that. Yeah Yeah Yeah you could definitely I mean at the very least you could just stay together. And then you've got your you've got your own this and make any pet. There has been some beautiful work done with them. I think there was some amazing green. I can't remember what country wants now but this beautiful artwork of these these Green Line. Where a lot of the elements of the genius fields and one thing that drives drives me to make this video. Let's is to put ideas into the hands of the agents so that they can go and do something better. Do something incredible with his some. Now you've got your basic you your basic paintbrush and paints ingrained in blood. Has Some has an extra drawing tools you can use. What can you come up with? That's what I that's what really excites me is just take the stuff that. I've put out the ten times for me. And some people think it math is involved so they run away from during the actual challenge enemies like sending your videos out to different people in kind of encourage them because we had a lot of agents locally. It's thought that that was too high of a number to accomplish and I was one of the people that skipped out on going for the third tier of the extra five Controller badge so for didactic was kind of like well. I want to go for the top tier on this because I had some life commitments and other things going on during at so five or approved myself that I can do it and I want to do it. Smart rather than just go out and do a lot of microfilming so actually the first time in a long time. Kinda dusted off the the brain announced to put together a couple of AP generators and actually do some pretty much. Just like herringbone type. Setup spoke with anchor points that way I could flu become cold and the same portal's is over and over again while I was waiting for cool down. So wasn't using his name. Flip cards or you know. Softbank's wasting the soft bank's that's been a good resource. I think a Lotta people so yeah. I'm sure work is appreciated by regard. And if you're a beginning Agent and you not done a lot of fielding and you want to know how to maximize your fielding. These are probably the best videos to explain how to do that. And I really want to steal your software that you use for that by the way but I'll deal with that later but he does a really good job of explaining how to get every bit that you can get and I've used your you know Examples a couple of times like this isn't GonNa work and it's like by. Golly it works so thank you for that. I still get comments from time to time saying I thought you couldn't feel the puddles already under a field that says you can't make from. Its you can link to do it and having people contact or reach out in the local Chevy like when. How did you understand this inflatable seeds? Yeah as long as you're throwing for something it's not completely under a field you can throw something under a field. Launched crossing a link to so. Yeah that that takes a while for people to grasp it in their heads that we talked about throwing back at one time back links or you guys give different names and Yeah beginning agents they. They just can't grasp that idea split in that field. Monroe Act like that shocked me the first time I did it by accident. You're getting jaded resistant. Software L. splitting fields was almost kind of like something that wasn't intended. I think to some regard like early early on I can remember. There was a point in time where they took away the ability to to split fields but it was only for like twenty four hours eight hours. Maybe because of the complaints came. This never really intended for this to happen. But it's it's it's an important thing because I mean if you want if you want that feel stand after they take out one of the anchors these split the fields and half of. It's still there if you don't split the fields then they take out one side and everything goes down. You know but if you're wanting to flip and re throw you split the fields so yeah it's it's it's something you can use to your advantage. You Know I. It doesn't add something to the guy on biased. Of course you understand or expressive has just Chit Lucky. That's what happens so I am curious because this popped into my mind but what is your. What is your link to field ratio is something that you boast on or that you. I did go after I am age. Die Reached three thousand links with two thousand fields and some of the local plants. Wow that's a really good ratio. Oh is it something I should be? Tediously pushed it up to one to one and says it. Stay there for a long time. I did go onto one during operation. -Til Star we were making a league star into a doubled so you know I dropped back and and I collected foods far outstrips maids Racia- he had a go at me. Enjoy CUSHY BACKUPS. Winning so yes I try to maintain. Its just almost a habit that now. It's like I see I could make field but I need to throw two leagues just one. Oh I don't want to do this. Fifteen point nine thousand links to ten point four thousand field so like I tried A. That's about every rich average. I've been my terrible. I live on if it if it shows it goes which must be. My rule is late four portals for fields. And that's the way to try and keep it. But yeah that's Vanessa the game. I mean that's it learning fingers now early age of Academy. They're all looking at your phone. Indicate where mindset. Is there any anything you wish that was in? Ingress like a feature. That isn't into anything. I wish it was in English as a feature. I guess the things that the things that annoy me the most is when I need to key in Conchita. But this is this is this is the game. I don't really wish that would change. It's a it's a matter of if I just go out there. I think I'm on my way somewhere. I happened to look Intel and say all as a field I could make and I'm not really thinking through sometimes I wouldn't have the case. That's it's annoying but that's life there's I really do like the game as it is I. I'm sure if I thought carefully about come up with a big long laundry list of suggestions that I wouldn't change a lot about it. I mean we had changes when we went from redacted to prime in our discussions. Were saying you know. It's really close to parody at this point and I think it's beyond it's added a number of things that we didn't have and redacted so moving forward in it seems to me anyway Stability on the scanners is much much better. I don't I can't remember last time I've had a crash out on the weird things now on the back end they're they're still struggling with things But that's for the scanner I and on the ANDROID. It seems to be doing pretty good. I don't know about fruity phones. Now I don't know if they have issues there or not so it's a pretty stable hat now again. Yeah that there was a while that it was. It was pretty ugly. There are a lot of complaints speaking of what is your flavor of mobile phone plus an android prison. I we came out. I had an eye which is why I didn't get a founder's badge. Yeah now I'm pretty certain. This finance pretty solid. Where cost device? I think they're selling the Founder's badge in the next pack. Heard so I think just get it their every one so I don't know if this is horrible or not but I've got eleven thousand links to our eleven thousand seven twenty nine links to five thousand two hundred fields. That's every probably by where I'm at. I think I'm marriages about two to one. Yeah I'm thirty four so one so I'm GonNa go the other way I'm gonNA raise to see how many links I can make without making a field or those therapies very see but only two veins home portal farms and keys around his. He can't get out. I think there was a guy who did that. I mean he may be misremembered this but I think of this guy who had from level one from the beginning carefully avoided making Siegel field ever could only a couple of agents resistance agents. Sleeves might be butchering that one but No no control fields. No those purpose purposeful all up. No no mind control because they're resisting the XM K. I I I understand. I understand her idea behind it. But no shields I believe. I think it was only only bursting. Wow Wow I can't imagine shoot. I feel every now without knowing it so they headed points. How did he get that once? I was had to make about a hundred links with fields and that was torture every single. Incognito Mike was so this is where I I had nine thousand nine hundred ninety nine fields and I was saving my ten thousand field so when I flipped. That was extreme. I had about one hundred links to catch up to get my link staff at the same level and so every time. I threw Link House terrify. Normally I had to tell the team leader. I'm not trying any links to nominate. We're fine with that and told totally on elephants up. That's going going all the way to going. All the way to h without making single field is unimaginable. I can't see I can't quite growth how someone do that. That's incredible number so you've been playing for quite a while. I have this since the second year I think did you. Did you rehearse yet? Or are you young recruit to level fifteen again? No okay slowly recovers pretty much as soon as the feature came out so on forty two. Ap So I only just possible sixteen ounce because it so doesn't sound like you're an agent that wants to grind and get get the AP just grind grind grind and get the or AP counts as you play by play. Yeah Yeah I'll set myself some weird challenge. Go for that and what to do for love. I we got a couple agents around here. That are just like Ryan points. I gotTA grinding get points. I'm like you're just making this work have to grind and get points that Some frogs no I actually. I'm a member of the fifteen forever club right here. I'll tell you that now. We actually one of one of our players. That's pretty active in our cell. He unfortunately started playing on a school email account and I think he got up to like level fourteen and then of course that that went away so he just he just grind grind grind grind grind and got it back to sixteen rather quickly and it made me feel because you know he passed me twice. Wow I mean if you know what you're doing and like I think host Rogen I load up to twelve before the W. was even over for that year select broker. Zhang came out a very quickly. Got Up to all nine then. Wbz kicked in and then from nine to twelve during wip that year. And then like I'm only backup to fifteen now on the recreation. So if I were playing the same way. I was playing during that period of W. p. all the time. I'd probably be able to recurs like two or three times by now but it's just not sustainable but all the time I'd be burnout ship and that's exactly what happened to him. He got he got burned out and the loss for our side. He may come back standing out of College. He might be back but yeah just kind of burn himself out because he was just running. Ab generators like every couple of days. You're just going to earn but like the the field challenge a relief like doing that because it was probably once a night career thing where pretty much said. I don't like wasting the items like this but I know I can do it. I took the time to plan the generators. So I'm going to run because I kind of always been a proponent is like no get. Ap Hardaway through regular micro fielding inefficient play because over more purist and had some people like issued a challenge like you candidate hundred data act. I'm like watch me. Oh well we don't want people to get sick and tired in burnt out watching the show or we're hitting almost an hour here and I WANNA make sure. There's no no more questions for fifty seven sell for we do some housekeeping and then turn off the feed. You will get the code out before we turn it off this time right now. I will. I mean that's part of housekeeping. The show we get all the way down crazy now. We're not be ready till tomorrow. Sorry J. Lo and do a telegram when it's ready trying to midnight tomorrow and speaking of with all the Coronas stuff going on. I don't know how it is working from home that like three times as busy than I was beforehand but the last episode is out now on Youtube and a on your audio listening devices whichever one that may be so you can download it and if you're just now hearing this one hopefully it'll be out much sooner. I will try things. We love everything you do. We know it takes a lot of time and a lot of trouble so just be a nice bonus like if they're stuck at home slating you get to Agent Academy One but I was kinda thinking with prime dips like I need puppy suckers out because people are getting home board and I made just put the audio out. Real quick from like the twits recording which will be lower quality than replace it with a better quality went to edited. It just depends but just keep that in mind and same thing with the code. I will probably done tomorrow and speaking of let's go ahead and give you that code. It is a fifty-seven sell a and that is new. Mer roles new numerical those are the numbers five and seven words. L L upper grace so Go put that in tomorrow at some point the episode. We'll be on our say that don't make any promises other housekeeping before. We shut this down. Anybody have anything for US your hands. It's rice dodge unless you have to buy field or having to go. Buy a portal on your way to the grocery store. You know you just might have to hack. Yeah and just be safe and and if you do go any on any adventure with other ingress cohorts other agents. Don't be embarrassed to say. Hey let's take separate cars. You know the time to do that and North that. Have a good week bye bye. Os Fifty Seven. Salford joining the show. Thank you and next time you have like a big Video and You WanNa talk about it. Just let us know and we'll get you back on the show and and let tell folks here's to tag over to youtube which has channel will end the shutout at least it's the Chad at twitch channel. If you're in there just click on it. Go Watch some videos. Learn play better ingress and give him a light to while you're at. It subscribes doing that. Next big awesome video comes out and then head over to our channel you but We'll see like probably next week. They probably I'll go with properly. Sounds good thank you again and everybody good week bye bye.

I'm now welcome to the jet. Takada me downloading latest Intel package. Welcome back I was getting worried about you. KADEMI number eight. It was recorded on December fifth. Two Thousand Nineteen. I'm agent Gooney Guy. Oh so we got frozen folks. Is there an issue with the camera. Asian vein here. I just got stuck there for a little bit. I think there is a similarly of lacrima starting to get a little We'll Harry an agent. Dj He's just are you there. Oh Jeez I don't know I think something going on in the system. Maybe he's resisting the podcast tonight. I don't know we'll figure it out. Maybe we'll figure it out for the end of the episode. But I wanNA hear about your your incredible week agent pain. Oh goodness my incredible week so I was getting over a cold towards the the beginning of this week. And unstoppable between that the work and just kind of the the fog of war as everyone seems seems to call it regarding the last Tetra live drop. I think my mind is still back on that battlefield in Nashville Were all of the agents. Agents were competing to get that that lovely Mary add live drop tests her up so for those. That weren't aware weren't following that. The Contact Act Turquoise is there a little late We're not sure if that agent was having to take Uber or some sort of other inter dimensional travel. Needless is to say we were sitting waiting for forty forty five minutes after contact time just to get that Nice Tester so so okay for folks. That don't know what you're talking about including me and the sad thing is so I'm like two hours away from national and I wanted to go but I had two flat tires that so I had to go nuts on my carton one but now the fixed now. They're good planning to go up to Nashville this weekend for first Saturday depending on it's also my wife's birthday on Sunday Sunday so it's kind of like you know there's that line there it's like okay. Does she want to do something on Saturday or Sunday. Does she want to get an answer with me. Not In doing New England. She's not into ingress so much. I think maybe I'm too into ingress. That makes it not so much peeling always for her her anyway so last weekend. Is that win. Yeah just this just this past weekend. And and I believe Centennial Park. Exactly what was going on like for those. That aren't too familiar with the tests. Elation Shen as as being called it's the current global event that is occurring with You know both factions verses Nemesis in we are essentially the agents trying to win pieces on this game board called the Tesla and the pieces themselves are unique media the items or physical items called Tetra. Tech suray everybody seems to have a little different way that they like to refer to them but essentially they are a hexagon all media items or physical hexagon items that have a little bit holographic detail on them and like or these plastic Dick Metal paper. Some sort of a mysterious. Xm No concentration into the physical hexagon on there but Yeah these these terra are pieces. On the Tesla Asian board and we the functions have to figure out where they belong on the Television Nation Board in order to score points for them so in Nashville or the past weekend. There was a live drop. Live drought. meaning that a save contact. So in the past we've had Stewart lightner which was working for nemesis at a certain point in time and then recently in Las Awesome Vegas Nashville in Philadelphia. We've had different contacts either. Different Stewart lighteners. Y- apparently has two brothers. The Agent Turquoise is is was in Nashville that had a tester out and I can't remember the name of the agent that was present for the Vegas. I've drop but Elvis outs. Yeah very very interesting. They kind of bring that that spy tactic into things where you're not really doing traditional field up up your given a time. If you're lucky a place of whether it's through a clue or some other means either through true seeker or clues lose that are provided through the portal network in terms of media and that the agents have to find where that contact is going to be neither. Give some sort of pass phrase or answers some sort of challenge knowledge to win the physical test era so so finding out that it's in natural. Was this a enlightened thing that founded rounded out or was it both resistance and in light knew it was going to be there knew where it was going to be and met up with the the drop so was posted to the community forms as just a a clue so during the around four so this is week four for the test. Elation Russian when clues were starting to post it that was a location that was given out to both factions equally so both factions knew where this was going to occur and had time that this was going to occur and then from there it was a challenge to see who could figure out past for the contact was going to be that way agents could establish contact safely with the individual that was holding and holding onto the tester and then from there deciphering challenges occur after you make contact okay and so who won this one so the enlightened did dig it Nashville okay. That was keener mom agent peanuts. Mom Calvin one okay. They figured out the puzzles and so they were able to get in touch with our contact and then answer the riddle that was provided by the contact act. Nice cool and she'll be peanuts. Mom Cat women will be but an appearance. Mom We'll be at first Saturday this weekend in Nashville so we get rain with all that swag right speaking of swag. I got an awesome letter in the mail. A box a capsule and I was like what's in the capsule and I opened it up and found this incredible letter from Andrew Krueg will. You can't sit there over there very nice letter thanking us for our you know working support of ingress and in it. There's all this swag. There's like a bunch of t shirts and bunch of coins and medals. I tweeted out closer. Picks and time. I'll do a story as as well on the website but we're going to be given out stuff got codes as well and in cards awesome autographed picture. So I'll be sending the host like a set of the stuff that they don't have any you're showing some stuff to you. Got Some coins right now for the radio. Audience said is listening to this later. And they're like why don't we just hear rustling no word well because we love wrestlers Russ Russell Wrestling There's local agent Mr Wrestler. He's really good guy wrestled but anyway. So we're kind of figuring out exactly what we want to do. One of the ideas we're talking about doing is having a form where where everybody can sign up if they want to and basically find some agents in the academy that will help a bus with dead drops across the Globe and actually be able to come up with some cool like puzzles but also ways for people to get codes and stuff listening listening and participating on the website and things like that so stay tuned. It'll be in our telegram. We'll talk about on the show. I'm sure and and I can't wait cause it's going to be a lot of fun. Yeah I'm really looking forward to it like I know this is separate from the Agent Academy Academy but just due to the fact that you know Andrew sent me a box of swag as well just as kind of a pass it along to the community. A just charity for the holidays to be able to give out all this stuff to agents and I've got some real goodies that I'm looking forward. The building a sort of my own live drops or dead drops and I think I might try to work out. Some sort of our p. e. technology that is going to allow me to mix some dead drops and locations. That I myself might otherwise not be able to get to so. I don't know the people in the anonymous bubble you know. Researchers they're still working on their P. Tech so maybe I can borrow a little bit of that knowledge and figure out some of my own but I think I'm going to be getting together. A few dead drops so anyone. That's following along with the Agent Academy Telegram Channel. I posted a link for broadcast channel in their myself. So if you'd like like to follow along with any of the live drops that I'm going to be attempting. Please feel free to join any time. You want Essentially what I'm thinking of doing is is putting together a couple of packs hiding things out in the woods. Somewhere cities for Saturday's future aggressive ends. I certainly have no shortage of swag here so really looking forward to that and puzzles in yeah in cool stuff so thank you so much. Andrew is very generous the view and I've seen incitement from some of the agents that I know that the vein I believe peanuts model has some stuff to give out at the event this weekend so looking forward to it and I think the comedian appreciates that sort of stuff is like. It's something that ninety doesn't have to do. An Andrew doesn't have to do and so very appreciative there. WE DR MINUS One shirt on this end because my wife goes Oh. That's an awesome shirt and like you can't say no can't say no can't say no to my wife so she didn't say no to me when asked her she gets the rest of them. Goodness I see in the Chad Andrew saying why w which I think translates directly into your welcome. So it's very good in some thumbs up there the modern language. That's awesome oh he has a symbol to it's awesome and we we have other events coming up on December ninth is going to be what the first encoded challenge first decoding challenge. I mean. Hopefully the things will be encoded but agents need to decode them right and they'll be thirteen of those and that's what one for each archetype one per week yes four archetypes specifically it's being called the archetype challenges are type decoding challenges So there's a new uh-huh decode challenged section. That's on the community form that you can find under the event section so pretty much if you're on the homepage area just go hover down over events and then you can see a link tastes your to decoding session. So the first deco challenge should be posted December nine at seventeen hundred. Ut not see suddenly that is algae is trying to figure this out now doing math in public. That's never good idea nine hundred. Ut echoes another. Oh you know what a seventeen hundred. Hey I'm andy if you don't know me it's probably because I'm not famous but I did start a men's grooming company called Harry's the idea for Harry's came out of a frustrating experience I had buying razor blades. Most brands were overpriced over designed out of touch. At Harry's our approach is simple. Here's czar secret. We make sharp durable blades and sell them at honest prices for as low as two dollars. Each we care about quality so much that we do some crazy things like by a world class German blade factory obsessing over every detail means we're confident and offering one hundred percent quality guarantee. Millions of guys have already made the switch to Harry's so thank you if you're one of them and if you're you're not we hope you give us a try with this special offer get a Harry starter. Set with a five Blade Razor waited handle Shave Gel and travel cover offered just three Bucks Fox plus free shipping just go to Harrys DOT COM and enter five thousand at checkout. That's Harrys Dot com code. Five thousand enjoy. She's ignoring me. What did you look it up? I did not. It's now ten. Am Pacific or same by Andrew. He's he's like superman tonight or green lantern and JJ's in the chat as well which is always good to see. I'm glad you you founded and that actually brings up another good point about the the swag and stuff like we need to find an agent. That's over in in other countries that maybe Hashtag that we can like. Hey We'll send people that you want to send swag too in the US. If you'll send swag people we want to send to in your country because like I still have a box that I guess in JJ blaze. He lives in in Canada. And sorry if I shouldn't get that out but I don't think you care and I went to go mail it to him one time and it was just a bunch of just chachis from another podcast we do and you know so. It wasn't like valuable stuff it all but I wanted to mail it and it was like that'd be twenty something dollars and I was like back I. I think I'd rather just like a shirt or something like like in Canada and just have the mail it to his house house. 'cause that's like I I didn't feel good about myself just like you know mailing a bunch of junk anyway so I still get the box and I actually have something else that I'm going to send send you in lieu of it because I do feel good. I'll go ahead and show it this. So this is from. This is from our old podcast artist. made us this rendering for and for those of you just tuning in at home that can only share the beautiful poster. That's Gooney guy is holding up to the microphone right now now and now it. Is You know curling backup St means trend. Make it sound. I'm glad you think about the audio is. You've you would think I would now but I listened to too many podcasts. That do similar recording style. Where they're constantly talking about things that you can't see see if you're only listening and it drives me insane so perfect so anyway so I feel good about sending that and not a key chain? That was probably some stupid game so anyway that was that remind find me out of country stuff that it it's harder for us to like send one item over for you know it gets expensive real fast that makes sense anyway so but we do have codes that we can give out Virtually so that will be. I think what we do for out of states agents who participate in whatever events we have and next week and talk about twenty twenty anomalies. I hope that is our Christmas gift. Take I I really feel confident vivat. Brian is Kinda out there on twitter saying like soon trademark. But he's putting a kind of putting date on that soon he's saying you know before the year hopefully fully for the I believe the specific wording was tipped whole events which I know there are a couple of people that seemed a little concerned by that but I believe the term just this means like your big production events or something what would it be outstanding in the community so that reads reads to me as anomalies and really hoping that we have a solid lineup of dates coming down the pipeline. Because I don't know about you I myself in like and you might fix swears. The next the next anomaly in yeah yeah. I'm looking looking forward to getting out there. I didn't get to Go physically to the last two so I'm ready for for the next one and update. We got prime updates which are always good. This one looked like it was a few bug fixes and updates. I know the Vignette that is kind of on. The sides of the screen is disappearing or go away. It is gone it is gone so I know there are a lot of folks out there that were saying that that contributed to Migraines or other issues that they had viewing the screen. Some really hoping at that is a quality of life improvement for folks. I know it makes it a lot easier to see like you wouldn't think that would be a big impact but when you're looking at the scanner and and there are things that are on the periphery. So they're just almost out of you. Things will crisp now whereas before everything was kind of the blurred edges or you would get that almost like rainbow effect that would occur towards the edges of things in that is completely gone so things are back to portal's nexium crisp now now even if they're slightly far away and it's like going into ingress these days it feels like a nice Polish rush game in my opinion and like I've had one issue that I can even think of in the past month or so playing and that was was just. It was the similar issue that we've talked about in the past going into like a dead zone but not getting things to load up but this was actually I was driving in My brother was actually driving because we were meeting some family out of town and it was like Probably say about a forty five minute drive going you know. Probably seventy or so off the highway. Pull into downtown. Start going you you know fifteen twenty miles per hour Well I know there's portal's around so I load up in grass and I start looking and Of course I'm I'm speed locked. I kind of assumed that I would be immediately but this was kind of weird because it was continuous for about. I don't know twenty. You almost thirty minutes closed the game a few times and it just would you know you'd click on things and it almost looks like it was is working and then you get like a communication error and kind of the thing. We're really Easter. So it's just really weird. I sent the since the Info to Andrew and he was gonNA pass it along because I was mark in my car and so I should probably just posted to the community but has been leaving so I don't know besides that and hopefully that'll get fixed. It seems pretty good. How's your experience? Been Lately Oh it's been good like I have not really had too many issues like the occasional crash every now and again but I really have to be out there. They're kind of playing for upwards of an hour or two hours doing a lot of small micro fielding to to Kinda run into situations where I get a hangover crash You know certain things that were issue months ago are really starting to get worked out and we also have a note. That injury just dropped into chat regarding Intel saying that Intel Janabi noticeably faster There was a recent update that was pushed just yesterday. That even if you use these certain exotic genesis attachments or plug INS to Intel map thing should still work and it should have. You looked faster so I know that was in response to there. Were some issues. With some agents were experiencing portal's not quite loading at the quarter level so that was kind of back and forth where appear to be some sort of a caching issue From what people were kind of speculating but that fixes been pushed so hopefully everybody has a better experience on the map. And you know I noticed this like yesterday I believe is as I was loading into the Intel normally I like scrolling super-quick to the ocean because it was always my trip to like bypass the lag you know because normally it's like you got to wait for it and then you can kind of click that thing to send you to your current anyway so instead of living with that I would just scroll Grohl in super fast before that started chunking and then it wouldn't happen because you're in the ocean and there's nothing there for it had tried to detect and then you can hit the thing and it would send you over but I I forgot to do it and I was like Oh crap it's but it was like butter. I mean there's just moves better and just scrolled straight in so whatever they did absolutely fixed and I didn't realize that was in until he posted that so and now injuries is letting me know that the the portal loading level issue might still be occurring But definitely speed loading should be a little bit faster so absolutely anybody that is noticing. Those issues is please just keep reporting and keep benching it definitely does help. I know a couple of chats. I've been sitting in where people said about things like as soon as somebody you brought that up to Andrews attention and I think Brian Somebody tweeted at him regarding in somatic issues or it was on record somewhere out there in the Internet Things turn around pretty quickly so when things are working. Let them know on the Web's they'll they'll take care of it. super-quick like saying the Web's the Internet's so If you like there was something else in the update we'll linked to update in the show notes but there are some bug fixes as well in it. So that's always good to see the year seven event came and went and we haven't done a show since then so definitely want to touch on that because I finally got to level sixteen took took What four years? But you're so do. What did you recurs your request immediately? Yeah yeah so what media Oreo to now. I is it the sand and I'm like where's my scanner level. I think I'm just eight hour. This is where he tried to calm before you can get yours opened yet. Eight and it was it was during the mission day. Hey that they did in Birmingham so I went down there. Yeah it is down there. They will get upset when you go down there like you know. We're like east of you. So that would be over are there. I'm like you know what I mean. Everything's down there from me. I think it's down there unless I go up to Nashville and that's up there. Hey I'm andy if you don't know me it's probably because I'm not famous but I did start a men's grooming company called Harry's the idea for Harry's came out of a frustrating experience I had buying razor blades. Most brands were overpriced over designed out of touch. At Harry's our approach is simple. Here's our secret. We make sharp durable blades and sell them at honest prices for as low as two dollars. Each we care about quality so much that we do some crazy things like by a world class German German blade factory obsessing over every detail means we're confident and offering one hundred percent quality guarantee. Millions of guys have already made the switch to Harry's so thank you if you're one of them and if you're not we hope you give us a try with this special offer get a Harry starter. Set with a five Blade Razor waited handle shave gel and a travel cover offered just us three bucks plus free shipping just go to Harrys DOT COM and enter five thousand at checkout. That's Harrys Dot com code five thousand enjoy but like east thank kind anyway. So Birmingham's a they have more active agents than Huntsville and so I was able to get almost a million. AP Jeff Jeff that day during the mission day. And then I went around. There was some big fields that was able to take down. It was great because the the resistance agent who had this just nice layer field up and I was like picking out those targets going okay that'll be good. AP Then and and so ran over there and take him down and they would just send me a message asking me how much API got four and they were kind of like watching and they're like oh you're almost there you you know. Keep going so he's got a nice like you know it wasn't like some gruber who took mafia or something like that so your fun. Time time over there down their mission day fun and now the goal is to get to sixteen again in less than four years. So so I believe in you I believe in you. I know it took me. Jesus was a December two thousand twelve agents and I hit sixteen eighteen for the first time in twenty seventeen saw not quite the world's slowest leveler. Apparently there were a couple of other people people who took that bragging rights. That aren't quite at sixteen yet but I'm already up to fifteen again and I'm actually a little bit behind what I thought I was going to be at like like a thought this year during W. get teen life happens. Some other circumstances happened and then right at the beginning of the year. You're seven event as I'm getting prepped. To just go crazy and get endless amounts of API think the previous year recurring came out a recurs got backup to level twelve before double AP ended in this year. I went out one night I got about three hundred four hundred thousand. AP and I got sick sick as a dog the next day so for the remainder of the AA pm it onto sitting in bed. And I'm like at least I'm getting twenty recharging. Aw Aw when you're feeling better. Yeah no definitely I feel a lot better. I got out Thanksgiving for a little bit Right before all the food and and everything else and try to get a little exercise in so that a couple of portal's got some microfilming in it and felt like a human again so good. Let's get. Are you going to a first Saturday. Editing yes yes I'll actually be in. I think Red Solo Cup. His public location is decently known. So I won't say where I'll just say the same going to Red Solo Cup land so let's just call it that so. We had that for Saturday. I'll how cool and I think I'm going to kind of sneak in a live. Drop either in the middle or or right after the Saturday so I'm looking forward to doing that. That's nice and we need to set you up code so you can give codes out and people can get a vein metal on the site and stuff events and whatnot. This means actually need to get on the site in so bad and doing some news to you. WanNa Post News. Oh yeah no see you know. Let's maybe we can do like a New Year's resolution of assertive avoids everything that we're going to commit to and and really do better at improving for twenty twenty in terms of like. Yeah we're going to get news. We're going to get like insider like insights and all this crazy stuff and pass codes or raining down these holidays after all right. Yeah so hopefully. And that's how it goes right like best plans but best intentions like all that like I was like okay. Holidays are coming up up. Like I'm GonNa take took tomorrow off because I'm like capped out a ride around my cap and vacation so if I don't like take time off like I'll lose it like lost twenty hours in September. Just oh no yeah those hours anymore. Because that's not good so I got I got to make sure takes an anyway. So it's like I'll take some time off we'll do some shows but it's the holiday thing it's just everything seems to families around down sometimes and then you know it's like people want to say hey come on out and play some grass or let's go do this or just the hectic thicke nature of holidays and you're just like I just want to sleep I just want to not do anything and speaking of Like so we're going to try to do some shows but part of that is some of the items might take a little bit longer to might take a little longer to edit. The shows We may they do shorter shows so we can at least do the shows a more frequently than once a month kind of thing and passcode. Select Pasco for this episode. You'll have to check the description to get it. We're not going to give it out tonight. Actually we we can give out the code tonight. It just won't work 'til later. Make listening on the PODCAST. It'd be like what are you talking about. Works right well until it's actually published on the site. They can't get it so they can get the actual Kogo make the assets for it that that makes sense so we'll give out a code and if you listen to this later than say a few days wants it released it may be ready so just just go and try it. We apologize for that but you know life life happens. Life happens so there is also an update to the twitter's and the facebooks. The sound old her. So what is that still in the channel teller has actually what it is now. So Oh so courier is the the next in line nemesis villain or more potentially with I mean currier was involved with the mission day at sea so he was trying to you know he was trying to get the undying silica so for anybody. That's following along with lower or they're just like what the heck is this person vein talking about That's all related to the test. Elation and current events with the nemesis sequence so nemesis. This courier working for Nemesis is trying to get a hold of that undying silica which is a prime artifact of unfathomable power that will hopefully be learning a little bit more about I know there was some decoding challenges surrounding mission day at sea and different pieces of Intel. Work coming out but I don't think we quite Oy. I heard everything yet right so some people were speculating that with the update to the twitter. Banner of the facebook banner featuring currier that that there might be something coming on the horizon. Here maybe before in your early twenty twenty we don't know anything but potentially challenge or maybe it was the packages out for came in the one online dorthe. Oh goodness this crew is dropping some nice pass codes and so the charity now. My scanner is lake. All the way over here you yes. You can't do that. You've got how is doing redeem this code. Well and if they're if they're that C.. J. W. looks familiar. I'm just going to say that when we do have I don't know if some folks don't know there's probably most do listen the show On our website. We actually do try to post the the semi forever codes they. They seem to work still when they come out so feel free to go. The passcode page. And I've been adding in the details about like what's in those those Pasco's like so basically they come out. And then I redeem it and immediately open in the website and then put in the info about it so at some point I will add in the filter so you can be like man. I need cubes and you'll be able to collect cubes. And they'll just list the passcodes that had cubes in them and keep up to date with it. Moyale Karate used these goats but if not it hopefully it'll be a way for you to find those things that you need quickly save. Save it in a spreadsheet and then when you're on top somewhere and you're really desperate start going down the list right are just you know. Keep that website on your phone at all times showed it keep it a web APP anyway. So yes thanks for these are okay. So there's much passcodes and chat. They're good for the first ten people so if you weren't in chat you're missing it and w five to one and wine. Geez see four three five. Why do you think that whole thing he did? You read the whole thing it tin. I didn't get I'm just joking and I'm missing news wise so this is kind of not really big news. Although I'm pretty sure that people in Philadelphia won't kill me if I say this but for anyone interested in the go. Rock side of things with Currently right now doing Ben Rock three point now so next Friday December thirteenth. I think that's correct. There is going to be a special banner in the city of Philadelphia. PA in the states here where the CEO. Jason of Gourock is actually going out there doing work with agents and I believe his wife Emily as well. So that's going to be interesting. I I took off a day for that. I believe they both claim this so but there is there assistance. That's okay I see. You're wearing a key tonight. Do Jay was frozen in time so I figured maybe we could unfreeze him. If we used a key. You like it was some sort of lock situation. I don't know I was hopeful. It hasn't worked obviously still tracks trapped. Yeah but at least happy. It'd be trout so this is Sir GonNa be short show so we need a coat though. What do you think the coach should be tonight? a swag myths a think like Swag Miss Soleil as the U. G. M. A. S.. Or something something like that. Something along those lines. Okay got it got it I can even. I'll put it up on the screen just so there's no confused. ooh Look at that big text. It will shrink the second undoing. This live so make sure you beautiful. Yeah you line yeah. So that's it so and I did want to. I forgot to mention this in the news part so I don't know if you saw this week tweeted a image of a new not really logo but just kind of Maybe thumbnails maybe for shirts things like that but I just went to a US. A place called fiber a lot to get like voiceovers art and things like that done and and so I just asked you know the artist Hey looking for a new logo and just need something. That's like a male and a female blue and green and just with a spy team. You know just what it's by well they send something back and I was like okay. That looks good. You know so tweeted out and let him and got all these comments about how basically how sexist it was. And I was like how I'd I'd like I'd like that was not my intention and I go to my wife. I'm like hey can can you look at this. Like tell me like is this sexist. Oh yeah yeah that's excellent it's completely unintentional. And now there's actually I didn't want to mention this on the show because it's actually a little bit of surprise for you and do e j but I have another logo that that I have been made right now. That actually has the three of us in it. Susan Arts is done with that. That's the one that we will use news and early do I. It's like Christmas came early. Yeah well in bad thing is like I have make two of these levels one. That was just the main one the one that was a Christmas themed one and so now I have some. I can do photoshop stuff so I'll probably go in and just like fix it a little bit but and then run it past my my daughter and my wife to make sure that like I'm not it's being I don't know what the word is. I guess access but because that's not the intention we definitely don't want anybody to feel like sexist and don't think that there are more than just guys who play this game and Innis. Yeah no that like the the male demographic in ingress is is on the lower side of things slake seriously. Yeah so anyway I just wanted to. You know I like I was trying to. I was like GonNa tweet back and be like it's just like I don't even know what to say like is definitely not the intention and I don't know I feel bad that anybody felt that we were I'd say we that I was insensitive or maybe this was like a light. You went on a fiber right. So Oh they. How much did you pay for this logo? And you don't even know because sooner they'll do things for five dollars okay. Okay very in depth like artwork with like full color and for both of us it was eighty four dollars. That's not bad that's not bad. At all I commissioned arts if anyone's seen my my telegram you will know that and that's that is is creamy reasonably priced for logo actually seriously but it was like I can't like I'm sorry I can't hate it. You know what I mean. I can't pay to have it done again like that and just like well just change so I'm going to see if I can do something with it If not it'll just go into the oops been. I guess I don't know anyway. I just wanted to address that before. We ended the show which we are going to do you a swag. A would stay tuned to our twitter's and to our telegrams and we will let you know next show you know when it will happen big thanks tonight antics and especially Andrew Crew. You're very kind gentleman. And we can't wait to get the swag into into the hands of agents across the globe where we can have a great week. And I'm sure we will do a show before Christmas. We're looking forward to some sort of Christmas show. Maybe some sort of new year show and We'll see that so. Thanks a lot. Everyone good it's morning or afternoon or something I don't Know Uh.

This is Rio Group say reference to something that will be in the news. And we'll get to that in a minute. We've got a lot of stuff to cover tonight. which is an event I got you? Hey Amex just played down for thank you. And we'll be talking about the event that we all should be out participating right now. Thirty million things to get also a new decoding challenge. I don't know if everybody's everybody's doing this but we're going to talk about that as well as upcoming events wayfarer somebody's getting their portals submitted and then mission day at sea to that's exciting and of course passcode before we get to that. Let's throw it on on over to our blue resistance agent. That'd be me isn't it so you want to know what I did this week that I can tell you. Yeah Well I. I was on the road most of the week so I was in a cell that I might usually in so I figured I would throw some big bluefields over them. Normally in prison cell right yellow. Can't say but yeah. In the cell next door got to throw a bunch of a bunch of little fields and get a bunch of Eunuchs so that was Kinda nice getting into places I can get to and we have a couple couple of our agents that came back from college. Came back to town and said why. Don't we have a first Saturday. I said well if you WANNA throw them together so we got a first Saturday Saturday about ten or twelve miles away from me which is integral good choice. The first Saturday in central Illinois and January might be Kinda cold but thanks to some industrial college kids on Christmas Christmas vacation. We got one. I think we might even have a little gadget academy swag. Maybe if I yeah so if you're near Effingham Illinois the fourth combine freeze off your fingers and have fun with US drinking or playing when trading reading. Yes that just at work in a lot and I did write a song for my frog friends. Oh Sun a song are lighting live at the I I can try. It lies at here. We go have have a blue Christmas. It out you. The lengths of blue are filling being the Intel layers of blue overhead. Will make sure were ahead it in the score for that Bluh Bluh Bluh Bluh Chris. Nice take claven for that but I got to write like it. That's the only thing I can do so other than that just. I tried to do a little bit of challenge today and got totally freaked when Mike Skinner barked and it came back and said choose a faction. I'm like Oh she's a faction. Get you to switch. We thought it was an emphasis I thought nemesis got into it or something but evidently that's something that'll number people people have seen this past couple of days. We'll talk about that. So that's me. Do you want to go an extra. Yeah sure there's not really much to talk about. I've haven't really been able to do any of the event this week. We'll we'll get to that in the event staff Jeff I went around today just put in some resonator on some things like that then I'm GonNa WanNa do this after the the event starts and so I stopped and just start playing Harry Potter instead waiting for the time to start and then I had to go pick up my son from school school and then come home to my wife sick and my daughter sick and no so is like getting ready for the show and then I was like I will just start tomorrow so you have you barricade yourself in the studio with tousands and trying to keep the germs away. Yeah it's like I'll go get dinner and so you know so no one has to. You know we don't have to make dinner tonight and late outside your door knocking run run and then it was just like it's on the table. y'All enjoy I'll see ALAISTER. Spent good good. Hopefully they'll they'll feel better soon and hopefully I don't get sick. That'd make a great Christmas. Everybody's sick the it's usually how it goes some day call under the treaty. Okay Sarah something big old package of fisherman's friends. Wow those things but besides that works been really busy this year and I'm off till after Christmas so so I'm GonNa play a lot in Gris this week and we actually we. Have we have a guest host tonight lady anthrax. Do you WanNa say hi and tell us about you and your what you did this week. Hi I'm lead the anthrax. Thank you thank you for having me So I I flew portal's today I I some level one on resonator when looking for neutral portals that I just used on my Pods gotta start on the challenge. So as far as English goes. That's what I did today earlier in the week. You know I was. I guess. They recharged things. Test salaciously. Yes yes. Okay should've out participation. We also did some stuff so I didn't do some translations. There was a test ray near where I live in. DC But I was not in DC. I was visiting me so I did not do stuff but I watched for far. It's pretty cool still to see it hesitation in your down but it sounds like you're gonna get to do some Hick athlon stuff on Ingersoll on the list list. Yes there is there isn't one in DC so that'd be. I went to the hexagon when they in September when they had some wet to the one in Rhode Rhode Island and that was the one actually it was like a race against the clock game and I enjoyed it. I raised against the book got the Purple Dad. The extent you can win Hex Act One. I feel pretty lose one. If you you didn't lose o'clock didn't win him okay. An agent vein. Yeah it's been. It's been pretty busy lately in terms of Congress stuff I've just been trying to get out. And since the last time it was on the show actually really done to to dead drops so the episode that I missed a well but maybe there are some dead the drops out there hm but no no so yeah right. After the last time I was on we had add a DC. For Saturday. That I attended did alive. Drop where I just took some of the swag that crew gets out package. Nice the need and then just ran around. Deploying begins like I was a vessel for noon assistant in some respects in leaking that swag out into the wild and agency who enjoy that so I think I'm GonNa keep it going for a little bit if anyone is interested in following along with that I do a telegram channel that I'm sharing it too. So all drop that in the chat show notes different places and you can follow along Otherwise it was out for the Philly banner so that was just last Friday. They went out got in. I think it was just a little over. What the requirement was so we did? I don't know like six and a half miles around there Got The banner done. It was raining the whole time so all the phones were baggies emission. But I was pleasantly surprised if anyone hasn't done missions recently The last few updates the stability for missions in private is gone through the roof at least in my own experience burst. So if you haven't mentioned lately give a shot really. That's other than work. I'm getting swamped there. But got out today. Did in a little bit of the challenge. I got the first year locked. But we'll get into that nice nice well and you know I forgot to mention. Besides I just actually playing ingress did get to do some ingress stuff which was work on the Aging Academy website and the twitter channel. So now they they've added something new. You Call Kademi point so the longer you watch the channel the more points you get this stuff like that. Like I just made a message in highlighted it. We'll we'll add things to that so it it. It costs nothing to anyone just watching the show. gets you free points and then sooner or later you can purchase things with them Subscribers do get double the point through watching so there is incentive there and then on the website so there's this bug in our software that keeps resetting some links and so like every once in a while you'll go there and like the sites some pages ages don't work which isn't good for website. 'cause that's the whole point of it. Yeah but it's just like Miami gotTa Admit Nemesis is messy. Taylor says so. I've been digging into that trying to figure out exactly what it is and so this week off. I'll be able to work on that. So Ah hopefully yeah but I'm glad you have faith because we'll go dance and L.. Try to I've got a bunch of stuff to mail out including your swag or swag for the event. Maybe I'll just throw it out the windows. I travel a little bit of traveling. It's why just just don't do that on a highway. I don't I don't think it'll be the same thing I I don't think people are gonNA stop their cars for that but I don't know maybe it'd be surprised maybe axis shmelts so when might Stopford that one might as well. Yeah Oh God I stopped for the the axe and all I got was this dead body on the side of the Road Komo would be. Let's go at the news then. Speaking of dead bodies on the side of the Road Andrew crew is leaving Niantic. He's not hi Dad. Yeah that's right. So he's not he's not gone till the end of the year the end of the month and hopefully he goes onto something something he and he enjoys and and I don't do. We know what that is. Do we know what he's doing. Anyone Buehler buehler something. He enjoys like you said he's going to be missed. I mean he really is running for President in two thousand twenty. He's probably all those guys. There's so many of them that might thank be because and he is is going to be. I feel greatly missed. I'm going to miss him I think he's done a lot for the community getting things rolling and I worry that some of that stuff won't last without him there to kind of push it through like are worried about the vanguards at all is that one of his is initiatives now so I think you know everybody was concerned initially myself included that the vanguards were Andrews Andrews creation and a lot of people definitely were concerned that Andrew was leaving. What would that mean for that Avenue of Communication? Would it stay. Would it go and I am happy to say. Currently we are trying to open more communication with NIANTIC. And I think that's about as far as I can get into into things but that won't be going away anytime soon. Let's get to hear about an AMA's probably Argonne. Can we assume that. At least for now I would hope they get picked back up in in some respect but yeah I think it's we don't really know Tony Yet. What's going to happen on that front today? Have Somebody. They're going to replace them with or do they know. Well the and that's what I'm wondering if you months ago I think they have a job opening four community manager And I thought it was for The North American area. I may be wrong about that but I almost assumed it was like a counterpoint. So maybe they can have a resistance and enlighten agent. They're nice yeah. It's kind of one of the things is when you if you didn't know Andrew was enlightened. You know. He was enlightened. He's he's probably the least factional that I've seen of of players that are dedicated to flying So yeah I would say I always say he's definitely a player each -til absolutely and if you if you took the time to read his farewell post or if you haven't taken the time you're at his farewell post and when everybody it's on the community forums. I believe just in general section I just farewell agents and we cry right in here. You know he he does go into say that you. He always wanted the community to know him. As Andrew the Global Community Manager Not Andrew Vian laid agent so and and. I'm wearing a morning happy for him. In case you don't understand it is Red Solo Cup drink during the group. Here's here's your crew. Cyrus Solo Cup no floods frogs. Get it wrong. I got it right. Reusable accounts man. Okay okay. I'M NOT ECO friendly. I'm sorry so that'll be interesting to see what happens. If there's a new community community manager or Brian Rose just Kinda does some of that would it seems like he's kind of been taken up some of that role with some announcements. But I just don't know with all the you know with a lot of the anomalies that was one of the things and we'll get to this in a minute about the The events but you know they specifically mentioned in there basically they don't need anymore. PSC's for the anomalies or something and so we'll get to that in a second scanners getting bored yet. What's this amount? It's air to crap out of me today. I also got my first year on the challenge and I was like okay. I'm going to pull over and take a picture of it. It's like Oh hey look it's saying that I can put in a new avatar. Put a new Avatar just soon as I did scanner just went nuts you know same pick a faction and it was just bad. Timing timing is what it was but basically what I did I guess a number of people are doing is when it just kind of goes nuts like that. Just shut it down. You may need to move a little a bit wait a little bit fired back up so I think it took me five minutes to get it back on and I was surprised because really I was thinking. The scanners been really good a month or so. It was very quick the like as soon as everything started kind of going down like the event went live and I think the first fifteen to twenty minutes. It's there was widespread reports agents. Can deploy are ones so whatever they had to try to fix that. I think caused some of the secondary great scanner issues that we were seeing but it was like an explosion of chats. Everybody's a scanner dinner and then as soon as there's people started forwarding their screen shots. And you better believe. All of the vanguards were immediately like Kayla's by the time we got to that stage. It seemed that things were returning back to normal so it seemed that sure restarting your APP should help in most cases but I think in this point in time it was just it was quick. Yeah we'll rent bides. We still are getting reports every so often. Hear that it's coming back so I'm hoping I feel bad for the people at Niantic ops trying to solve this problem with Christmas just right around the corner and I imagine they've got got a skeleton crew at this point but hopefully fingers crossed they can get it resolved and Calms down a little bit for the rest of the event. Here make a change happens. Well then I believe they posted to be sure to pick enlightened faction before you shut down and clueless out there. That's the process process. Probably because of everything too much green to which green maybe maybe a lot of grain. It's good in green with envy though. I'm having a blue Christmas. Didn't you hear now. The store I see line for the stores better talk in store store yeah. That was a while back that they had some issues with the store I can't remember what those issues were. There were some stories. Shoes are we. We're talking about in the scanner or in scanner had substance store issues but They got that fixed rather quickly as well so yeah I think that their response time seems to be pretty good. I mean it's it's not like you know how quick worked for the weekend. We'll come back and see it on Monday there. They're on top of it. So have you know now. We're good. Okay that's good but Ron decoding decoding challenging I. I didn't hear anything from you on this Deco Challenge. Now I've been working. It was all all this week was worked to get ready for being gone for a week and Really all I all I had time to do was download the audio files put on time. I didn't go. Oh that's suppose courage. Cool And I haven't been able to even get back to it and and do anything further so Alan. Sorry if I just gave something away spoiler alert. That's what we're here for right. So did you do it every night I played with it. I'm like you I downloaded it. And it's like and I listened to it and played with it a little bit in editor and I'm like I gotta go to work. Yeah I've been to too distracted with words too early. Get into the meat and potatoes of the challenge orange but I want to so. I'm hoping with a little bit of time over the holidays here. I can go back and nine hundred if you're listening. I hope that you know the challenges. Stay active Out there at least for a little bit of time. That people are busier than need to catch up. You can't play on the scoreboard. It would be nice to be able to still in those codes. Go back and do things at your pace especially me. I'm learning a lot of that for the first time. So it's GonNa be a little bit slower at getting those. What's your brain cells with this kind of thing? Yeah I would say that not getting on the first week scoreboard because of the bug. Doug that I'm not as I don't know I don't really feel the need to do as much like that. was kind of a little more of a a boon to. Yeah get everyone. I still wanted to him just because I like doing the Coating challenges is just I I kind of do it in spurts. I don't I don't do it like every time ones out you know I'll just kind of When there's a big win out on on work on it some? I'm assuming it. Somebody's cracked it. Sure someone someone and now. There's another one on Monday. Yes Monday for Monday. So that'll be nice. Yeah I've just trying to find it. I know last time we can find how quickly somebody did it. I haven't seen that yet but I wanNA say Jesus it. There's a scoreboard in quick. This time around as well was it interpreter. Twenty four hundred twenty two solvers looks like somebody got it in three minutes three hours so last night they had some added like zero seconds. So I don't know if there's something with their counting That's off or what. But I wish that then I broke. It broke is knowing get done so I was trying to find the the page within so you found it later board. I think I found the leaderboard. And and it looks like top Dakota top one thousand decoders but you're right the other somebody that's Wendy coded with like zero time So I'd say there's probably something wrong here but the the next one down is like one decoded in four minutes and fifty seconds. See in the end. This is one one thing I thought last week. Is they say enter the PASSCODE AT INTEL DOT com slash Intel. So it's like I knew there was something that said. Enter it there. So yeah we'll we'll linked to the actual page that has in this has all the Different challenges and the people who have solved it it's just ingress dot com slash decoding slash thirteen archetypes at one. The twenty four hundred solvers for the second one there were fifty four hundred for the first one. And your looks like there's one coming out on the thirtieth and one coming out on the twenty third so visionary on the twenty third skeptic on the thirtieth. It's it's every week till March the second. When does the first well we'll get that So decoding coding challenge. Good the other challenge right now is the destroyed deploy event which they've done various Versions of this who wants to Talking about the rules the rules with one person goes sent hold. I've never heard that knows. Go now yeah yeah you just gotTa last person finger on that knows there and then you gotta do it. It sounds weird northern thing must be. I'll jump in for the twentieth through the thirtieth a Bob it's a Basically pushed me resonates out as you can Trying to get that same. Thirty million thirty million thirty million total by December thirtieth So during the event You get three three times. AP for the eighth resonator which I think ends ends up being wiped what is it like eight hundred twenty five something like that and you can put out to L. Eights and two seven so if you're beating up up that farmer you want to build that farm now it'd be a time when you could get it off the ground with just four people instead of eight. Get that L.. Eight out there And to counterbalance this is is something. I really liked it. They put in there to counterbalance. They're also giving double. AP FOR RESONATOR destroyed double A. P. for links destroyed in double A. P. for fields destroyed. Because the last one we were doing building it really didn't pay off to tear down So now pays off. Tear down to the whole situation with Cassandra neutralizer where yeah it was. Just you know smashing everything. But don't don't bill they'll build to Smash Smash Asia that lesson learned has extended onto this new event as somebody like. I'M GONNA go out there today on my lunch break. I was just microfilming and it was just playing ingram normally so I know there's all kinds of different strategies for how people approach these events. What I try to do is just play how I would normally to play in? If I'm racking up points generally is just kind of a nice thing that I'm also getting a badge for doing my my normal activities so I was micro fielding as it was going and getting the initial xerox and I hope whoever comes across in and smashes that is you know encouraged to also build a little bit. We're at least enjoys the fact that they're getting all that bonus. AP as Microsoft people will throw around the term wind trading like it was taken out of the roles. For a reason award you hear from Vanguard said it's official but I I've noticed we've had just one or two of a local guys that they waited for revision and they recurs just before so they can snap up those points a little bit better And get through those lower levels quicker So he should have metric in your scanner. Doubt the bottom telling you how many you've deployed and Horse three badges. What are the badges ads for the first here for bronze for the silver tier and then fourteen forty not teen thirty one or team forty four? The third gone tear badge. How numbers random generator? I was glad for a chance to use up plus bonds because they just been sitting may inventory gathering dust. It will definitely run down through through your inventory inventory pretty quick for somebody Gooney who runs out of resonator anyway. I'm sure he's he's going to run out of them quicker than anybody else. Yeah Agnes heck were you doing Duca. Pac Man what are you taking. What are you heck sixes fires? I wish I had a bunch of Portals like that around here but pretty much five is the highest. We got out there today. You can build your own six. Yeah it's time to tell you something you might consider that we've done in the past is if you can find a ghost town you find someplace. That has a bunch of ordeals that nobody ever goes to He kills you to do this but it works. Go through and just loaded up with wants in twos especially once and then if it's big enough track is go around just getting once getting once get once and big enough track so that you know by the time you get to the last one. It's fresh and ready to go. And then then you can build it up. Hello bit but Because it doesn't matter really what level those resonates are that you put on that portal Do you want to get the first one and you definitely want to get the last one now. Isn't there something about upgrades as well. You're grading someone else's resonator counts but upgrading your own. That's not right so I tried to play with low level. RESONATOR is in case. Anyone else comes along if you WanNa be nice to your friends but it all at one if if you WanNa be me so now I have is Like leapfrogging like so if I fill them all up and then you fill them all up if I come comeback around in the now filling up your autumn all of it asset questions that now I think the answer is no. It doesn't count but I I don't know it should be able to figure it out right now on your portal. Let us know but I hope I got would tell me no but I can't say for sure sure no I'm sorry there's only seven and eight resonator is on this portal. I can't do okay destroyed flipping. Let's start do I haven't upgradable L.. Who I do I think for upgrade it can put another eight? I'm at one one fifty six right now. Hey trae upgrading. See this is this is call field. Upgrading your own though. One of fifty seven so now but were you on that resonate original no okay. Well we'll figure it out and let you know someone's figuring out already and there is a payoff if we hit the thirty million keep going through January six eighteen hundred. Ut they'll keep the triple ap eh for the eighth resonator And it's also. I think there's a first Saturday bundle. A fifty L. ones will be available to purchase during that for Saturday which he gets the four By I don't I don't see what I usually see on this. This is I. Don't see a downside. There's actually umbra deployed bundle that is available in the store right now so they did add that in. It looks like it is for one hundred. I'm fifty one so it's a bad deal if you're the market to just kinda get a ton of resonator personally myself my strategies Angie's typically I carry a lot of Idaho reservoirs and then oh Klis hack at a low level and then sell out the corner with the remaining resonator but whatever oyster I or you go out there. Deploy has learn Yup. And if you haven't coats in visit Asian Academy we have a Pasco page you can get some resonator and other gear there or a ton of passcodes. Yeah and if you he brady down it's actually. It seems easier to get the gold badge on this challenge than some of the other challenges. There have been the past of Sir if you have to get fourteen in forty for the gold badge that split route. One hundred eighty unique. Portal's if you say there's ten days in the challenge you can do eighteen portal's a day. The trick is unique portals which is easier harder depending on where you live. Yeah that's another one. We've talked about this before. It's it's one of those is probably an easy challenge for somebody. That's in a metro area of somebody's in a rural area. Like me you know. I just happened to be lucky enough. That I was forty miles away but An older city that has a whole bunch of nobody plays at so I got the I got to start on those this flip eighteen quarters every day. uh-huh why don't you email me the flip cards to do that and I'll just go that route. Just just mail your phone way. Let me see if you got you got no it inputting flip cards in Lawson's available anymore Moore speaking of Lawson's detained. Say there's something unique about Lawson's and hyper cubes today. So I think I don't know if there was actually any truth to this because it was a screen shot. That's somebody posted so they could could document it all all err on the side of positive intention here that ag reported it might It appears that there were some instances where people were hacking Walson power cubes today so they had hyper cubes in their inventory but they were also also getting Mawson's from oils so your mileage may vary but I believe Niantic is working out a fix for that is they haven't figured out already. It is a sad sad day. Because Lawson's circle. KS are gone hibernate. Act Did you say hyper cube or actually. It didn't say unknown. I wonder if it's just a like a file cash thing on people's phones and it's just like they over wrote the files not just make it the same name but your phone still going to call the same file and indeed. I popped my final circle K.. Before they made that change I didn't play much circle K.. was still on my my bar so when I would log in the following adhere to Say Circle K.. Us Nice let me just never play again. You just sit there and let the circle cates it forever. I use my last one Sunday just in case I was like I gotta get the last my spicy. XM So you know. POPs up that circle K. recharged a couple of quarrels and they're they're burning brightly today and then if that was in the event of the year the events of next year have been announced. We talked about that last your little our last week a little bit. But now they've released the actual Places cities and stuff. They're going to be happening at these are for the heck's athlons dress along And the anomaly which is will be Germany now is. They're only going to be one dollars. Heck's athlons which would have been I guess the anomalies originally and then the anomaly. So I think the heck's athlons will somehow play a part in the whole story and and this is just kind of reading between the lines and a little bit of what light right. Brian has said that there'll be a way to basically get the badge for the anomaly through those I believe right. Am I reading all that right. So I know he has mentioned the flash point quote unquote events that we might end up with where those sound like. They're going to be somewhere in between a hassle on or an anomaly so I don't think we have enough information yet to tell which direction that's going to go but and it does sound like maybe some of the athlons will have something a little more. Maybe the flash points will be completely new category that we get at the time but it does sound like you know for the first half of the year. It's pretty much go to a HEX athlon if if you're close enough and go for the big party in Germany where everybody's going. I think he was mentioning as a way for people to our off site to participate more than what they had in the anomalies of the past year or two. 'CAUSE I mean if you're offside I mean you were doing recharge room or maybe you had some keys. Getty yet kice that you you moved but so it sounds like they're gonNA allow to play more of a role like you said. Sorry I'm trying to find the INFO about the flash points was that in the first announcement I WANNA say. It was the tweet maybe Brian's blog when that's right were forums about wanting more anomalies we posted a little about a back on the fourteenth and we have that posted on the ancient academy websites. I can go there and click on the link that and I guess that's what I'm wondering is was he saying flash points and like I'm trying to figure out if those are actually separate from the heck's athlons like do we know that for sure and that's that's kind of my speculation as well it. It almost sounds like they're setting it up to be a third category but maybe it's something that could occur during a heck cephlon John. Maybe it's something that occurs ahead of an anomaly but isn't a HEX athlon. It's it's really hard to say at this point but it sounds like maybe we'll get some more information mission soon is what I'm hoping anyway. I it almost sounds like what they were testing in. La For the first Saturday their number was related to got to give the flashpoints. Oh and it does say in his blog in parentheses right after he mentions flashpoints. A new scalable competitive edited event format separate from the Heck Zacharolli. So that's good. I totally missed that part. So that's good so you think the heck's laws will have nothing to do with the anomaly but the flash points will as nominally. That's just my accusation. I feel like the flash points be anomalies are a decision point. So it's kind of a point in time where something occurs occurs in history so the factions are fighting over control of that measurement that decision point so the flash points on those sound like they're almost like these many anomalies so maybe we can influence a character's alignment or I don't know something something else might occur during that window of time that impacts acce the larger anomaly. And we don't know yet do you think it's going to be something where they announce ahead of time like months where people we'll go or do you think it'd be more like very regional and all over the place and that's I'm almost hoping it's more of a almost like a regional sell for anybody. Anybody that was here. During that period of time where anomalies had connected cells where different cells throughout the world would be chosen as needing to get certain laws of fields on the board for for in you control during certain checkpoints in and that would filter into the anomaly scoring in some meaningful fillet So I'm almost expecting that sort of thing or the fact that maybe we just get a lot of ornaments worldwide and and agents can just go out so I really hope for more accessibility. That more agents can go out and participate if that is the intention for the flash points but it might end up being something where you know. Oh you've got thirty cities or fifteen cities or random places hopefully gene maybe some more rural locations there to keep things interesting Looking for either way charge shephards hearts. Well it'll be interesting to see what happens. Maybe we can get Andrew on the show after. He's no longer at Niantic and maybe he can. Do you think they're like making them. Sign a bunch as at this point. I don't personally think it'd be great to have like like one last AMA like I. O Four mandic global community manager asked me anything. I don't think you ever do that but we really interesting. That'd awesome now. Yeah yeah he jumps in. It's a feeding frenzy. Just people just post post post post post. We need the LASAGNA China recipe. I feel like this if anger is going to leave us the lab. He should do as global community. Manager is Gillis Zeina Recipe. It's like I'm not dying like yes. LASAGNA recipe media. That'd be great all right. I'M GONNA Message Events Team Right now. Johnny Red Cup I tell them about the agent Kademi media drop to. Yeah no LASAGNA. That seems like that should be a shirt to lasagna sheriff's Ingress also posted a a thing about. I guess it was just in the community about a look back at twenty nineteen stuff from that. Go look at it will put this in the show notes. There's also the two point three eight dot three update to ingress grass. which will have the new avatars as well is hyper cubes taken over for Lawson's so I think that's out because I I did get the avatars host Yup and then also they had a I don't know if you read the latest blog on wayfair it is very interesting about Just a bunch of stats about a pours and stuff. So that's definitely a good read. Did as well as One thing I noticed so I actually. I've submitted couple of portals Today actually And I was looking in Wayfair I noticed some of the portals they show in there that are accepted that They most definitely are not portal's right now and so. I went back and check the emails like I know those got rejected. Why are they saying accepted? And I looked and it was because they I would say this is a great candidate but it cannot be a portal because it's too close to another portal so apparently those still show up is accepted in wayfair. I wonder if there's other categories where you get those nurses that show like that as well as senior. So let's say that you support all someone else admits the same candidate uh-huh and then it goes live but not from your photo. Sometimes your photo will get added to the Puerto Right away and I imagine that would come back as saying accepted accepted but in that case you're getting porky. You're just getting the photo be interesting is that is that one. That's happened to you. I've gotten a few that way. I feel like it really depends on timing and I guess depending on what the photo is Lake Nick. Different people voting in Wayfarer Beckon kind of determine who gets the portal. I guess timing is everything I assume whoever's I into the voting Q.. Is probably going to be the agent. That gets the name on it. We should have like break records so we get as many eight maybe the next Sonali ring. Maybe not because I can't make Germany like everybody else can do it and just January but we get the most agents to submit the exact same reportedly the exact same time. That'd be weird if you if you really want a whole bunch on get get the pokemon players do it. I have a feeling we're outnumbered. He'll like I just imagined there system be like I don't know what to do. The computer would start screaming programmer. Who Know maybe it's just me? Yeah it's just you. Oh well there's a lot of things that are just you so talk about it. Move It on Yeah they had they had the social impact report was out. They put it out the eleventh And they talked about some of the things that the community's he's doing and they're engaging with the the real community the real world around him So I talked about Earth Day campaign in April And local education program in Harlem so not only having fun but Doing something to help out our real world communities at the same time so they said they're excited enthusiastic about what's to come in twenty twenty so Looks like they had ninety thousand plus players participating local community events in forty thousand hours and sixteen point three billion kilometers walked. Wow that's all a bunch and that's and that's counted Columbus. The scanners do fairly dabbler. Triple of that if you think about it a little. PTSD FRONT OF FIELD TEST old goal for for field best. I can't you're better this time or it'd be funny if you went in the like the person who is like writing is up already deviled AAA 'cause they're like Oh you know. The scanner doesn't actually get them all this double. That number had the numbers a little bit. It's okay okay First Saturday the next one is January fourth and if you're anywhere near Jamestown go there there may be some swag from the agent academy. I have a feeling that there might be some brandy or other things to keep you warm because I feel like it's going to be cold but it's always the challenge to see if he can warm up your phone enough so that you can actually hit the button and enact but were the first one for us But we're going to try to have a couple of. I think we've got one eighteen banner and I think we're GONNA try and get another six banner out there there who knows. Maybe I'll put out a agent academy mission. Ya do it by edge started. How far are you away from me? Talk about a quarter of the country What about six hours telephone I it? It's it's probably Ali closer to probably close to four. They didn't tell you about the recruiting perks. You can tell a portal now. It is an odd drive. It's only so show up. We still have to throw the link to your destination so so that might be a little different. You get that length there you get him. Bring me I'll drop some keys when I drive by. Sounds like a plan and while lower expect them up and this feels like this is just the episode of events which is good while in events happening and and speaking of Mission Day. It's easy to was announced its The first one it. It looked like people had an amazing time. And this one is going to be a seven day cruise. This is from November. Fifteen th to the twenty second and twenty twenty and this'll be from San Juan Puerto Rico Also so royal in Rubel Saint Martin. You know the dates go for it. No I was just looking at the cities. I'm like this. This looks good. Yeah who's going are you. Are you going again. Seven days would be hard for me to do if I can talk my wife into doing it. Maybe just because then we could spend some time together too but seventies away from like the family like definitely can't take the whole family. Finally this is So I don't know I would love to go. Are you going. I would love to go saying go back to make it now. Definitely definitely thinking about it. I know for anybody that isn't in the chat there is. Oh you know ingress at sees what I believe. The official chat name is until NIANTIC would sanction it. In which at that I point I think it would take on the mission at C.. Two Title Electric Bogu. But I believe some of the discounted on an rates are ending at the end of the year. So if you are in at getting in and saving a little bit of coin that we have some more for the adventure I I believe the cutoff for the discounted rate is December thirty first. So yeah it's one of them saying asked. No maybe I think hopefully niantic is going to maybe sanctioned again that would be nice as just my own personal wish. I am hoping that they decided to pick that out. Because it sounds like everybody had a blast maybe hang. Johnson was on that boat somewhere as courier. We don't know yet but maybe we can both hangs on boards so we can have a little double Johnson while we got mission. DNC to double Johnson. Yes I don't know I like. I don't know why they wouldn't like endorse it like did it really did. Did they have to spend much time with anything about it. I mean it sounded like They didn't really have to do much right. They got the tag working in. Yeah I I think it really just comes down to all the extracurricular stuff that they were planning for the First Mission Day at sea to that was kind of a last minute. Add on You know players had organized that day. Oh steph as you know. POC just self organizing getting that together. And then I know after after they approached Niantic there was some discussion of okay. Let's try to make this a little bit more official get a badge out there get some other fun things for the agents and also the joyner support so agents that were at seed in losers joyner streaks. They aren't all that good stuff and it doesn't look like it's overly expensive either. No I think I think it's like Join in front of the interior rooms. You could do for like under seven hundred dollars the full week right. I don't know I haven't got that far along so unless that was just the the Which mccaw the The money you gotta put down for but I think that would be just a percentage of that and they they have have deals with this company where you can actually finance vacation and make twelve payments things like that so There's definitely ways to afford it. I think if it's something you WanNa do so It looks like the low end. Six Hundred I. I like this price. Six hundred sixty fifty six dollars and seventy one cents near mess now so that might be a room from Hell. You can move up a little bit for six eighty six. Then we'll so my wife and I went on a cruise for our honeymoon. Marion and the funny thing is like talking about her being sick I was sick as a dog when we got there. But we had one of these interior rooms. And they're you know they're fairly small but you're never there like you're always out doing other stuff and you just go there and crash so I would say if like the price is an issue at all like gopher the interior no worry about you know the other rooms yeah But they may fill up quickly too so get there and I mean when you're talking under seven hundred dollars under a hundred dollars a day which you couldn't even get a hotel anywhere for that that's like you get all the food That you can eat for the week. That's ASSURAS bathrobes. Get so it's a great deal and it's going to be a lot of fun I would love to go so I see if we have that kind of money in our budget. I'm sure that our KADEMI budget probably Springfield right right. We could write it off. Just write it off. We'll have to bring down the website though. Okay that's that's where the money goes every month. So that's true. Got To pay that without Web Monkey Monkey Code Monkey monkey it and you like that song good monkey anybody. Anybody know that one code monkey like US TAB in mountain dew. Oh Yeah I was thinking of trunk monkeys. But that's a whole series of commercial ever have time look up the trunk. Monkey commercials are. They're they're good if you go look up Jonathan Jonathan Coulton and Code one gets on anyway code for this week It is just a ex mess. Nineteen AA so XM A. S. Nineteen. Go The J. I've got Jay blaze probably has done already and it's a special. It's a it's a different one this week. So when when it POPs it'll be a fun one hopefully for the holidays and we appreciate Everybody watching the show tonight and hope you enjoy joy your new academy points rack up all those points just you know.

66: Ingress update on Umbra, Tessellation, Shards, Field Test and Agent Vain joins the show!

"The House of row journeys far and wide to bring you exceptional quality kitchen and bath fixtures in all of this you'll see the details of your own story the story of a life well-crafted welcome to the house of Ro Hi this is Andrew Crew the global community manager for Niantic labs and you're listening to the agents and other games I won't mention the names don't offend anyone but with the Pixel as soon as you went to another game Android Kim Galore MP three player now welcome to the Agent Academy Me Episode Number Sixty six recorded on October eighteenth two thousand nineteen I'm agent Gooney Guy I've Asian Dj it is put me way behind on my my ap like games that are at like I had it planned out I was going to get to six. WWW DOT audible trial dot com slash agent academy over one hundred and eighty thousand titles to choose from for your iphone and a new phone recently I got the note tin and I come from a pixel three which just wasn't cutting it trying to do in grass like no problem because it has like twelve gig Ram compared to three so if you're having that issue with a phone you might WanNa check this accents Aram thing I know the new pixel they just announced the four is going to have six GIG so that should help a bit as long as I guess my weeks really short or my month and a half so are two months whatever so I'll go real quick so eighteen like this month and then next month for the yearly thing if they do the WPA I don't know why they wouldn't going to rehearse and see how vein guy and we've been gone for quite a long time as you might know and we have a special guest I haven't really had much time to play and that's why we haven't been doing the show because I've been working sixteen hour days and hopefully that's ended they downloading latest Intel package. Welcome back I was getting worried about agent hey and we've got a lot to talk about and these two agents are going to let me know what's been going on because I've been out of the world of ingress for the most part and drop ingress basically out of the ram so you'd have to come on like reload it every time you went back and forth and it was just a really annoying so at this one I can actually run three games at once yeah yeah hey and then we can start doing challenges against each other or even like now maybe not so now the challenges for do J. defined another resistance player and then we'll have the foursquare okay I can do that and then we are working on Alexis colony but that's about I just worked I don't know if you had get and now it's GonNa be like getting sixteen during it so that's been a lot of cross story I am one point five million. AP still stolen long got about two hundred and fifty cater to fifteen so I should hit that fairly soon and hopefully so you can do swiped without touching the screen so maybe silence so maybe you can I don't know hacker portal by doing that but anyway do that I think you still beat me but we'll see but we also have we'll get motion stuff maybe if the new seen it but the Pixel for it'll have the as like a cone of detects motion and stuff tired and now I picked up three jobs so I was kind of like you have been kind of busy but I've been able to get out got to run a little bit of recharge room and I don't know how far back we went to using crime and getting away from redacting stuff like that redacted has gone away since last time we broadcast and L. Payback for Chicago always remember Chicago three years from now I guess it's payback from Chicago on the show so yeah so let's see since last Asian Academy episode where I didn't exist so let's see it was born in alive because you stink and frog seemed to just sweep this last anomaly all we can do is take Europe you guys just beat the snot out of Asia in America so but so sixteen let's see it's GonNa be tough please but yeah okay so go to go to Madison and got a couple opposite I got I got a pretty good sized bath in today made it through one hole checkpoint now or into I guess who vein is in a minute because you're going to talk about yourself and what you've been up to new agent on the show vein the next show might have something interesting to talk about let's just leave it at that so everybody start looking for lanes right now because DJ's calling it but so all right now on five okay so you're here all issue the challenge as you know my first time on the show here I'm five hundred zero to fifteen on this recur Shen await relishing go that far back but it's been it's been very busy lately between work and all of the like ingress right but we'll figure out some stuff but anyway before you get to vein Asian doing Jay have you been I've been all right of course travelling obviously was on the ground for for Brooklyn did the stealth outscored their which actually do Jay I think you'd be proud to hear that but there you're not related we didn't use a portal okay never mind side of things but things seem to play out relatively well for the majority of people wants the day got started we had a little bit of trouble towards the end of the anomaly but I think America we got a little bit more lucky than some of the other sites so I'll just leave that a- that terms of lake anything else can start hopefully being on often he has time to be green player I just WanNa know another green player recharger up the whole anomaly strategy yeah just what it was just start out strong in stunt before we end just today to deal with an agent that was one of those hell unredacted to the last minute and he was having troubles he's like I can't I can't throw this over I can actually go out and playing gress because planning for Ingress is no longer getting in the way of actually going outside and playing so I'm five hundred the stop hang up just hang up the call so I've been working a lot I've been playing ingress since two thousand twelve December issue of actually started out first year and a half as resistance I short of level fifteen so that's GonNa be what I'm working on now but I guess I just Kinda glazed over the whole background side there but for those but that's about it well that's good and vein you WanNa tell them what you've been up to and tell us about ground team had last in Brooklyn despite some of the shortcomings with network is a little bit of issues with the servers on so I'm a little nervous but people keep telling me they're like you're GonNa do fine stop worrying but that's just my nature that sounds awesome the changeover to green it was the you didn't talk stories from from every side of the fence here when I started doing go roof stealth ops for ingress they were at a twelve hour format so the first that I haven't had the opportunity to meet yet hi my name is Vane Nice to meet you say something and then we'll go back and forth so finding Scott some of the local south players that we don't get usually get to see it did a little bit of recharging and I don't know if we helped talking about is that this about that is that is it more stupid little the ingress so I've heard like multi OPS events that I've participated in Orlando for Obsidian Anomaly series and I was just kind of like a dead ringer for Ingress Trivia they're like we just awesome nerd on the team that can answer trivia questions about the lower and that way we don't have to do pt which I don't even think we ended up having a trivia so people will get that reference Yeah GonNa have to scrap that idea and just kind of go back to the drawing board with the little amount of time that I had so no double Johnson not enough we have a ton of news to get into so we're GONNA go ahead and dip on into voice of blue did take the stops challenge three zero rest again l. great showing on both factions really love the community art give people a little bit of background you've done some go rock videos forest and we've had those on the show but it's really good lot of the newer stuff and Kinda touch on some of the older stuff just because you probably well aware of of that stuff but I I think the thing is everybody's just coming off the last Nali Umbra and there's some news that's come out actually today I'm doing day to day I'm actually just kind of ramping up for a go wreck light so not so much on the younger side of things although now that Brooklyn is on the future yeah absolutely and it's a it's a halloween themed garage late so talking to the Qadri that we had in Brooklyn for the stealth outs he due to report back and let us let agents around the road know how it is and maybe that'll help them ease their worries and maybe they'll try them is we can take I'm just to sit around and drink beer and charge less and less as we went so much is actually the same cowdrey that is going to be a Halloween light and we're supposed to have costumes costumes are required so contrast me outside of the after party bar he's like so vain they have their for for stealth ops so you know just a shout out to that group I hope to see everybody back future events other than that I just was captaining a regular correct light events some of the old events used to compare to go tough a little bit but really this is my first dip into the waters of go roof so to speak moments anything you want to mention about the anomaly itself it's it's it's it's something just for for me so but you recharge room like what what went on there how's that season and decided that I was just going to keep coming back so what a lot of people will tell you in the community is that some events compare to soundboard it's okay though they'll make the you know the finale just a winner take all situations so we just orange that attended but at the end of those twelve hours after having paid whatever the registration fee was I was hooked for some rain Vit- and then there's old stuff the best stuff though is that enlightened one umbra and we only have to we'd have totally I can just get him I'd card I can just glued to the forehead they're good net never enough hang Johnson's all that stuff I did all year long it means nothing so any memorable like you can throw your muscle memory Muslim retakes time you gotta get it down ended up throwing the wrong portal and we had to use a virus and starred in the first anomaly that was a I guess there was you could buy tickets so okay I guess we can we kind of dip into renews at the same time but number was the first anomaly that they kind of introduced this pay to pay to get a badge I guess is the easiest way to say ah the buses outback but other than that no I know you talked about getting used as well yeah at least get a badge batch Rach which which I part of me thinks that maybe that was the the driving force behind doing in the first place just because they knew there were so many people that were involved possibly none you know what's your costume going to be and at first my costume idea was like you know go is like a new member of nemesis or something and didn't see very arrest on that but you know so that's where I'm coming from so you're going to do the go wreck the monetary amount was so small the thing for most people that they didn't so much care about that it was just the timing of the that green seemed to have a good handle on on on the ground at least what we could see and this was I guess left here so like a frog goes to Hang Johnson hang quote me on that I know Brian was there at least not sure about anybody else specifically but I think that was announced ahead of time that this series at least for Umbro is still not going the dip into object their right but there's a lot of untapped money there so how can they do it and they can they see if they can make money off people yeah yeah I think this is the first one and again I don't know all the lore this is the first one I can remember that you actually had to pay to participate offsite unity a lot right after the registration announcement went live a lot of feedback from individuals that I spoke to is at least I think and I don't know if it was so much I mean there was like half of it was because of the money but the other half was more I think because of the I mean he'll finally I've talked to more from our from our perspective we were recharging for Brooklyn and it just seemed like it was just green all over the board on and we've been gone for so long that there's a ton of stuff that went on so we will get to probably in such a situation report this is the time where we talk about what's been playing remotely and then you know people who go there they could pay to get how many how many people from Niantic were on site in Brooklyn I mean what is there I know that was a big deal in Chicago we saw a lot of their people and and and like we got today the announcement about refunds and all of that other jazz coming in with the badge push so things are looking up despite that you know we sit here and we talk about that but we all know how the Internet works people are going to be angry anyway that you split it I do think that the timing was just the largest the badge is basically about fifteen bucks and then you could they introduce later because a lot of people were upset about this new Dresden the banner out front the thanks thank you for nothing and so I think there was I think that they kind of like a double whole like I wrote a post about this on the website so you can kind of read and detail my thoughts and and I definitely want to say sure I do think that nine hundred is aware of that and moving forward I personally feel that at least they will be aware of timing on those things the something that had been pushed out for the twenty twenties for those nemesis series sites it wouldn't have been as big of a deal of course slapped I have to pay and on top of that you don't have anybody here thought would you but when it comes down to it when they talked about the refunds a lot of the same to about you know it was the timing of they were definitely pulling back people from the locations and then what's the real point of doing that I could understand offering it and if someone feels like they need to get it but I heard like like ninety still you know the great peeps in general you know and it's just like I don't want anybody thinks it's just like there's nothing like no animosity or like I'm not mad at them personally but like just on the ground there and at least to my knowledge I I don't feel like they really get anything from Niantic for that monetary and now we're going to also charge for that and I think I don't know how warranted is but just in my head like just the they have a lot of staff you weren't going to see any of the characters on site so we didn't feel like Hank Johnson or anybody floating around 'cause they're all trapped in the really so it's like if something goes down with the hotels they're the ones that kind of get screwed by that and it's like an hour hey but I mean yeah even just recharging like it didn't even cross my mind to like oh I need a refund refund because I mean it's just you know and you got to Wisconsin we didn't see anybody till variant and some people are like well it's like they're not running the show at all the thing that Kinda makes the most upset about it and it looks like Dj's having some difficulties so in Brooklyn there was nobody on site for Brooklyn Sacramento did have I believe at least Brian Rose and a few other support staff onsite don't don't your thoughts on it I feel like just from what I from what I see forms post different news posts obvious played the timing too because you know people are made plans to go and and this or that and also this new thing and then there's just change talking with the key you know the stages of grief about it and through the other side and and then after like other stuff I'm like you know what will happen the fact that like if feels like they're on the hook for a lot of stuff like financially wise getting everything set up and it feels like they're running the show trouble with Mike there he was he was pleading to your guys like can you hear me can you hearing like are we safe level up through the prime scanner only I'll keep redacted install a fallback emergency things of that nature but things are difficult at the moment they are trying and they do care they do ingress to succeed I think a lot of the roadblocks with prime have just I'm from I love him so much more than redacted like I I was there from the beginning with prime and I was one of those those people you're paying money on top of it to antic instead and none of that's going to help them out with swag and things like that and that's that's that's yeah we were telling ourselves well the borders really agreed in Chicago we thought we lost that so we'll do well so we were just ourselves Oh happen and I do hope they listen to what the community said and their thoughts and I'm sure they are so it'd be had crashes bugs I've had plenty of crashes myself but it hasn't really impacted my day to day game play significantly thing to see what changes they make in the future like you you've already hinted it you know some of the stuff that hopefully they will if you hinted it's back now given you know other countries around the world yes the money itself was a factor as well but I know a lot of people were just voicing if this late I have an essential phone and don't have too many crashes sure if I'm playing for four or five hours on end might have two crashes but academy podcast today's podcast is brought to you by audible get a free audiobook download and thirty day free trial earnhardt or impossible to get to any more with the prime and five G. comes around that might take care of that and we did have a comment from this bubble slowly I think there were there were some players that that kind of soured things especially I don't know if you've seen the picture of right and it's been like growing pains at this point yeah well like I see I'm Kinda the opposite of all the hate I've been using the prime screener like exclusively almost since it went live and really haven't had a lot of huge issues other people the only time I see it go bad for me on a regular basis is when I'm going through capsules doing with them dory and that's where it tends to other people's experience for like I'm crashing every ten minutes on a Samsung Hey y'all the only other thing I kind of consistent yeah now I mean we're still streaming so we'll keep going and he'll he'll come back and he's are you sure 'cause if you're a similar LACRIMA this might not be good there are a lot of bugs there were a lot of clicks right during the initial launch but I- recur I when it was available and just kind of set out to tell myself that I'm going to that was like I love it and everybody else is like what is wrong with you think it was just after after I got used to the initial you know muscle memory changeover out and stuff like that most of the people that were in the rechargeable and the other people I've talked to I'm not going to give dollars back you know as money well spent device specific as well talking with a lot of people I've heard that like you know Samsung aids for for example we're having a huge issue with just the game crashing out frequent oh tell swag after parties as we do it for you know agents Diane only ask for input on the play box niantic doesn't really os I'm Tom Graham and Chatto want to relate that he said as a former NFL pse niantic never asks pse's to set up really is that it it just doesn't really like as being in low sell staple so there's some of those places to get to with redacted it's just canal your next your next vein but like I said I've already gone through that and gone through the go south but I'm order so I've got everything's full anyway I feel some of it feels I think so yeah there you go yeah I don't know I just I think they if you'd I used to be going to anomalies and seeing people on the ground and then all of a sudden not there that's you know that's Kinda rubs him the wrong way we haven't had any announced yet and hopefully you know whenever dates do get announced the upcoming series we have some sort of and people would pay for that people would pay fifty bucks for that or more for a weekend of that and you throw in the anomaly with it for fifty bucks to see us items at least that's the first one is our they had like the one booth where everybody went to the same thing in piled into the same hotel they needed to be that way yeah so yeah I I really do hope that ninety listening for primary sites being primary sites back you know because it's they they stopped that after Chicago right like they haven't had primaries and satellites ask ingress bands play ingress music but artists in Handel's talking about the game in the future of it in the past is going forward having the staff having that little extra bit of flare just having ten setup and some sort of common meeting area that goes a long way ages love that spread out through the year but it's like each country had one big one that like you would see most of the people that you might only catch one or two at each and all the week do a panel agent academy panel right like you have all this stuff that is just a weakened of ingress and your friends those things from series to series typically we don't know so like myself wanting to sign up for go rock stealth event I I won't know kind of feel because I always refer to anomalies as like the anomaly circuit the people that you see coming out to those events each and every time where it's essentially like with the field tests each month you can have this little more of a local kind of anomaly thing run by the local and then like once a year have one big anomaly poured or even maybe one in each kind of area one in you know in each country I mary's or or some sort of information regarding what things you're going to be what sites and extra curricular activities like road tie-ins as could be announced we might not know where growth is not my nowhere into lops is or any of the extras bells and whistles so to speak it's like a con- like a convention where you have like panels and and people come in and it's like a week weekend thing for three days where it's just like nothing but ingram a C I was kinda hoping that they were in people may hate me for saying this but I was hoping they would go to more of a almost like many anomalies to kind of sign up like that instead of each faction can have their own set up so it was it I'm sure also people who that was their first experience where like oh just coming from like going to a bunch of fifty bucks hundred bucks depending on what it is like how much there is involved with it it's like it's Friday afternoon at least when I got mine and they were going to give back how much for store credit thirty two she left niantic any of that status but I believe she was the one that was pioneering sort of like an ingress con I don't think it ever quite took off now not a weekend of just bowl we get like a convention to see us maybe I think I don't know everybody loves it I don't think you're gonNA find too many tractors on that that are like no no I don't Wanna I go go away no will and that's I guess that's one thing or are they going to eighteen dollars back I can see maybe those people that were at an anomaly say in Asia you know where they had a couple of hours gone onto the next thing but I do believe in this might take me a little bit but Linda Basch if anyone is familiar with that name I don't even know when the big long campaigns where every weekend for six weeks straight you anomaly somewhere and now it's gone into what I believe niantic terms the anomaly else anomaly through the year because everybody can't make it to everyone and if you had one big one and then don't just have the anomaly have the anomaly but run involved into at some point was sort of like the Camp Navarro events that we saw with twenty seventeen event in Navarro and then that gene per year I think that would definitely help with some player burnout it would also help to spend the money on the big flare once a year and then do smaller field tests or things throughout the year the smaller challenges I do think anomalies have kind of evolved throughout the years we used to have run out of the Gogo for that time and it's it's especially as we get older and families and it's like it becomes harder to like seasons three months ago yeah yeah but it can be like you said Kevin almost like I'd say from offside view pointed it seemed to start when the the next nominee started so I don't know if like I've traveled to a lot of convictions over the years and now most of my convention budget goes to ingress nominees so you know it's putting a hotel room with six people just so I can keep going and also they the bandits were pushed that's good salaciously okay so tests elation this is a lot of Info I didn't know nothing about it except for catching piece get that time it's like my my son's going to college next year so it's like I'm starting to have to like it's worth it like it would it'd be fun and anyway anomalies are you're right with that that like Khan weekends ah I guess so we kind of we kind of mentioned maybe we need to put it all out there that the email came out the three g network and it was like holy ah things are working yeah really only that lasts like forty five minutes that is really bad lychee yeah you've not being able to participate it yeah I can kind of see that but you know ten minutes of downtime or five minutes downtime during an anomaly one all your money is of things about boards of hundreds of things on it and stuff in so anybody WanNa talk about India they have a process to do that I I don't know I don't know about you guys but I I don't plan to get my fifteen dollars back and I don't think I'm going to tell anybody to get your free show is really hard to determine where the line in the sand could be drawn between network connectivity issues in like ingress issues so at some point I switched I miss anything there yet refund enlightened one starting our next thing because they started with the thirty two thousand dollars so if you're in the US the one thousand nine hundred nine pack yeah so you can get your fractures or you can get the things that you can something but posting everything to the community forum so we get the clues for where the tests array wendy that Hank had who all today have debra three or four people that about once a week the live games the live streets and you'd see that they were kinda hinting at it there and then finally when the anomaly came around that's when all the information was like an issue with network because now they had a whole nother anomaly side that they were having to push all the data to for the the portals in -at's that's a little much I think they have pursue a refund either a Brooklyn we had some issues but like I was saying before we started lengthy voting process to determine where to place a temporary or hexagon on the tech solution game board and then from there in the way that I've been talking to this about other players think about something like a global shark game and then think about media and another analogy there's a third party called the tethered hand which will actually place the based on our votes so at the Oh and then they went to the next one we're like this is completely there needs to make at special I mean that was the quote unquote season enter? I think there's too much information for to really get into it oh yeah on the show to it but so we'll link to all of that did you appoint enlighten points resistance can get points or for both wrong nemesis gets points and so if you're the way that you can look at it if you've been in a recent anomaly that has had the media artifacts scoring mechanism this is essentially just global scale of that except well part of the stuff I saw was dealing with some of the first ones that came out that they weren't okay from a couple of people you know fifth round you're actually not the fifth round of ear but I was hearing reports the stuff you can no longer do Kinda cute cap you can now buy and then if if you really feel that you can get the fifteen dollars back they will it might be good to pass that on to somebody that's more connected I feel like I need to check right now you probably have five Oh you know do a lot of that stuff like college stuff and ending time with him yeah but yeah so that's they can go on the board of hexagons there Dan letter looking at a score so far the and I think they've got about fifteen sixteen placed on the board already and I think there's I don't know because a whole bunch you know we're not getting ornaments we're going to get clues to where media will spawn in Portal's in the first three agents of either faction to go in half those can go through a really get hit the fan so to say so in pags kind of running the show on this thing and I looks like he's like doing votes in in whatever twenty eighteen in Navarra Those I would love to see comeback but yeah even just having one mega anomaly per niantic wants to push ingress into less of team against team somehow get it into the same of the push for fact stuff almost like the everything against namus sort of thing like do you think eight yeah they kind of started a little bit clues on that they had I think four or five live events with kind of logo on it there's a couple that are pictures of nemesis so they could be a number of things but they are hexagon shape respond which are the media items that you get that have the little hexagon shape in the media window and your scanner those are what we're searching for when we get the clues salaciously it's set up to where it is a winner take all at least from what we know currently between the three factions nemesis being the third action so yes while we all can vote on whatever choices we want to vote on so you could vote on a resistance they may just kind of look like I guess you'd say character card so they may have a character on some of them may have a a a post Gooney guy for a placement piece if you so desired but I would tell people this is definitely not a buddy buddy what's the prize at the end do we know yet been announced we we don't really know too much about what is at stake yet if you get one you need to let someone know yeah I think so 'cause I mean some of them I'm just looking at the ones that already placed on the board so some of them what's it like yeah what Gooney guy was saying earlier Sacramento started up in the US Brooklyn side of things really started Kenan lagging a little bit towards the end there they if the resistance wins right would then if resistance was ahead but still below nemesis would then onto the end and it's like okay the prize for the winner is this and the prize that if nemesis wins is so much worse than us against them mentality that's that's kind of what's happening with with nemesis but I don't think they want to split up they don't want the factions to old hands go marching in Bernie yeah so so do you think I feel like this is all kind of being hacked so they just gave them to the people who hacked them first and that kind of confused me I was like Oh so I don't have to post anywhere if I get one I'll be safe but no that's not the case have to make some adjustments on the fly to get it started when I guess that's that's what I'm worried is the right word but if it gets if you're an agent it's you're a part time player not you know you're not up on lower you don't care about Laura you get one of these weird pieces no the artifacts and everything around that that's that's my guess just like ramming stuff that's like we started having problems about our fifth round you know would you know work with resistance to get them to win ahead of Nemesis now I see that and this is how you get the factions to work together as they all hate niantic yeah see that's that's nemesis only had twenty points so they're already up ten points this first week so I mean it's you know I don't know college is not a hundred percent up to date on the last few days of what has happened with the initial discovery period for the six test rate that came out this week aunts that we've all been angry is the old like a the the the enemy of my enemy is my friend but I believe we're just about to get into the voting period so most in test ray have been found for this week it might be all of them I would need to fact check you have four light has seven boo notices they have them down as the red team with thirty early thirty points in right so we gotta make thirty points how much more do we have if we're at seven and if they don't get other so to say but you know if we have to come together and work week we can with the area that pokemon go in I I do think you're onto something there I think it's about eighteen out of I would say one hundred eighty markers on the board so there's there's plenty to go I can't get we what does it look like the place already so they're just it's a medium and it just looks like a hexagon so the actual photo looks like a hex but spelled out in the field tests like so we can go ahead and drop into field tests I guess 'cause like we did the field tests all the planning that you can do or or you know how you can do things every every anomalies a little bit different and so that's but we should get into the voting period and that's going to determine you know placement for these and whether or not more points go to you know more points get a raise or Nisus Ryan getting a lot more now we've still got one hundred sixty five that are on discovered Yup so we've got plenty plenty of time to figure it out and I and they're really get about like at the end because of some issues I don't know if y'all had the reaction I wanted to get there just the complete like Al God he's off the deep end now okay it looks like they've played look at what my scores were in seeing that I was like in the elite category for everything but yet had hit the commodores walks threshold so I think at some point it was just kind of yelling in the streets like your scores will refresh every five minutes so it was almost like every five minutes on the dot I was leaving the APP going is this another let's get them to work together to beat the third factor I my tinfoil hat theory is that all the stuff that's been going on for the past issues with the kilometers walked like my stop completely and I had to drop out of the APP completely and go back in to get kicking and that was the only one I missed I don't know so you ended up getting the retroactive push for the and yeah 'cause I I for there's like sixty something seventy one in ten of ten of those nemesis points just this week so when the game started correct yeah like my yeah I I ended up I think somebody early on ah they had to do a little bit of Calvin Ball too because some of the first ones didn't quite work out placements didn't didn't work so they kind of so you're just staying out of portals and things like that so yeah that makes sense but it was a field test is probably in portals like you know eighty percent of the time just trying to get that and I heard some people were saying like driving keys and picking those off with better the first one they did and they had a bunch of different events and it was all agent based it wasn't faction based at all so everybody was working a valid thing because I was going in and out you know adding resumes and shields and stuff because it was like oh you gotta be doing actions or whatever but a pet theory was that because I am a person that will pack while I'm still walking is that every single time that the scanner wasn't just sitting on the main screen that I wasn't getting counted for you know commerce walked at least that's my own opinion no I think that that actually sounds like at the time the ninety minutes were up and I got I think third place for for artifacts collected but yet just barely scraped by with the three K. requirement it's what is wrong with this are you android yes yeah because I think at least our side it seemed like more android people were having in in Rhode Island is thinking like Okay I've definitely done more than three cake has the play boxes had to be like to Congress square or circle or something during the last twenty minutes of the field tests that I attended in Rhode Island I was just running down the street just like walk there you're going to get clobbered as walked and people are like what against everyone else kind of I do think for the most part I think there was a lot of really good stuff with it and Anne troubles with the the kilometers won't I forget how many had to have now three three K. if it was fun getting see everybody of course and I would say I don idiot and rules don't make sense to me is able to happen I mean and probably the other way where resistance to you know help too but I mean I mean I think that's good but I think before the anomaly starts you should know of yeah at least at least a day with that category 'cause I thought I'd gotten to the elite like I thought it was like a speed thing the first person to get just make a loop in every single one of those artifacts media and that you give me my three a should get all the other requirements in there I had almost run to complete loops the fact that the nation is is game on its faction versus faction versus nemesis this is in fact verse nervousness so what's the they I think they thought the same thing too but I guess I'm the only one you it was the facts were going to spawn it was in the heart so like our play box had a little Hartford Artists Act bortles and just hold myself from the outset and I'm like okay I'm just going to probably I would probably say I probably went more like six K. trending get that at the end hours a near running with the thing during the last Birmingham I I I'm telling you I we need to get to another anomaly together I'm thinking they're going to have an anomaly in Saint Louis of course it's going to be in February it's but like only feedback I guess with some of it was like so like when I was looking at the thing and I was like Oh man I'm elite on these things I was done now she could run our own anomaly we wanted to but she can't but well aren't gonNA say like Chicago was an anomaly of an anomaly like it was so big and aw that's for sure I need to be able to step over it did you get to field test doing no I did not should it come in in the way the Rhode Island box was laid out was ninety cover whoever was bored day in drawing up the play box shore the madge right it was like oh you got it being you got the achievement move on you know so that I focused on the next thing and then also at the end I noticed I was like Oh wait yeah little prematurely I guess yeah maybe suits were were nothing's been confirmed yet yes so it's GonNa be like scraping ice off your scanner but you call them up and enjoy the snow and that was one of the sites that they preannounced around this time really really wish I had tracked him for that because I was working as well and just just running up hills the link and confirmed that the they confirm that they may change so joan was a Tuesday from the last row so we're really oh yeah definitely don't do that yet ingress Khan and they're extending it out you know maybe maybe you're GonNa get all indoors Oh God like you know it's just GonNa like and that was just I guess me I don't know maybe I was the only one I know the agent with me you hit the hole but it like doing things I feel like they probably shouldn't put the elite there like that too like to me that was like getting the it could be a mistake you might you might want to hold off on purchasing take anything for just a little plane tickets to write just yet they have I think that's part of the phone with the ingress I mean I don't I don't think we've gone into anything no and all the rules all the the most of it I think you're did you protest lowered the bar for you who knows they need I think it was successful just based off the fact you know tiny attendance so let's see ores anomaly maybe week long thing but we tried that once they joined indoor and comic cons or something yeah like portal's inside the building and Dot Com and you can log in with your ingress email the used for OPR and it looks pretty slick I haven't had time to actually MC ABC how many of those that you have been lost in limbo and and that kind of stuff which is really nice. I can't wait for them to do it again of course I one had some hiccups expected always with I events so give them pass yeah so anyway go check it out you can still just go to OPR DIED INGRAHAM DOT COM and it'll forward you over to the new wayfair dot Niantic labs look at everything but it looks like you have like a they have featured way spot so you can start and choose different ones and go so Canadian and German pokemon go players there with wayfair promise to release it globally for Pokemon ed but you know there's something that was put out eighteen October and they're saying level ten plus ingress players and level forty the big difference for them whether it's a gym or something like that so yeah well I mean the system isn't isn't without its I'm thinking of the wayfarer is going to change that dynamic I think we're going to see less of those players that are just in it for met there was some sort of requirement for Pokemon go so there would still be level specific requirements for each ninety game I don't know if expend on by the end of the year so I think they can do that right in there right on their phone well this looks so I logged into for the first time I'll into forty thirty something so I haven't seen the exact requirements that I do think some people are saying there's you know they just they just want to get their score they don't care if they mess up an oppor if they play well with the other children that are on the same side that kind of stuff a lot of times and Oakmont and so I think that's going to at least an Aria in this ruler area we have a number of players that we know are just I know they're they're just trying to get level ten and they put in their favorite pokey stops but they typically don't play well with others I just threw on there and we might want to talk about his wayfair this is the new OPR basically it's the poke poke the nature preserve can you put in some more or less so yeah I can put a couple more in and they'll say can you put it here I don't know if I put it there but I get close and I haven't gone to open a horrible agent and I'm sorry but it actually has nomination management like that's something we've all been

Seventy eight recorded on March Nineteenth 2020. I'm agent Gooney Guy Agent Dewey J Asian and we're here with some ingress news updates and shenanigans possibly more shenanigans than usual. Maybe less show we'll see but I will go I just because I've done nothing this week at work work work and put things in my house and that includes me so. I'm working from home Would somehow. I'm busier than normal working from home than working at work where all the people are. What about Y'all vein? So I also remote now indefinitely I think now that we're shifting more into new. Prime Universe is currently all worked from home. I guess this is what they were trying to warn us about like so yeah I. This was the first week of work from home sewing into it. It has been an interesting transition. It's been a number of years since I've done remote work and I am desperately missing my second monitor. So new one is the way fingers crossed still gets here also did a little bit of testily from home because it seems that the tethered hand would like us to all wash are tethered hands and stay at home so for any of you that have been following this solution. There have been a number of drops that were passed code related to her array of redemptions available for that pass code and you got a little bit of power cubes. Keep your portal's recharged while you're stuck at home very generous of the tethered to do that. Something interesting time Google and how about you do Jay I have been actually out and about when the nice things about being in the middle of nowhere as you can walk for an hour. Run into one person so I have been able to go to and from work I am not sequestered or or sheltering in place I think this is a plot by nemesis to force everybody to RPI. I'm just saying that. Yeah but who knows But I have been able to get out and do some aggressing Through a couple of layers today on my way back But being very careful washing hands a lot not not really I go into. Somebody's office computer. I go away I do my do I come back. So it's it's not like I'm you know in the middle of a crowd or anything like that so Also decided that I just don't want to eat so I'm doing a three day fast. I'm not eating on Monday Wednesdays and Fridays and it's not that tough so I'm I'm starting to drop a little weight you to maybe not the best time to do that. I don't know maybe maybe I'm just getting ready for what's coming to do it. Yeah I I don't know if I could adapt to that I think I'm rucking too much very brutal. Yeah I'm not expandable out of Twelve Hour. Maybe maybe a twelve hour faster could accomplish at thing but they get angry angry. Nita Snickers Bain. You can't get out and Ruxton. Yes so luckily. I am rural enough to where if I go out and take certain backgrounds There's there's no one no one is going to be crossing paths with me let Wednesday. Actually yesterday I felt like goes avenue like play frogger and just avoid people on sidewalks so I tried to like venture into town on rural town but I just tried to avoid people and just broke my route and nobody wanted to stay more than six feet apart. I one point was flathead down in the scanner and someone walked right up behind me and just can't surprise me. I was like no words from me. We've got a Basically Force reserve a nature center. That's nearby not out on their sign. Says you know. The visitors centers closed but the trails are open. And so you can get out but you gotta be really careful in what you're gonNA do and it's it's getting although it'd be easier tomorrow. It was hard today because it was getting nice. And you said it's going to get like seventy eight degrees cast for me. Tomorrow's supposed to be at twenty five degree difference in that's freedom units for anybody who's listening from Canada or outside of the continental us. Yes I'm very much looking forward to getting onto some trails. I kinda worry though that the portion of the at that runs through here is going to be busy. So I'm going to try to go to some of the lesser known spots that I frequent and just see if I can go on like a ten mile ruck avoid people and you were mentioned in pre. Show that you're getting out really early morning. So if you just take those off times you you can get out a little bit and and I I don't WanNa say mingle but you know. Stay in as much as you possibly can. Especially if you're in a larger area where there's people around and staying indoors a couple of hours ago here. Ingress pushed the changes to kind of encouraged that a little bit Which is much needed more so for other parts of the world but I think the US is going to be there very soon. Unfortunately but now You will be able to maintain a cer- journal streak by either hacking or charging as long as you recharge your once. In consecutive twenty four hour periods of time you will be able to maintain Jordan are so hopefully those that were trying to maintain it had it whilst already. But if you're out there is still struggling now. You can at least just recharge so maybe keep some power queued on an or. Hopefully you've got some ambien axiom at home you can deploy more resonator although don't quite think that one's being very well received at the moment because it encourages as you to go out unless you have a couch portal which. I don't think is a majority of players. Maybe they should give everybody one portable portal portal placing whereas CCABLE portal. I heard a lot of people talking about how to keep the city alive and stuff like that. I never even thought of the solution that they came up with a really good solution that that you can charge and keep that streak alive for the time being as a good good solution. I I like that compromise. A lot of us were kind of debating just talking amongst ourselves like do we wanNA push for power tubes to be something that could be almost like rationed out across either redeems like they've done with some of the yearly bonuses where you go into the store and there's a pack of the zero Matter Unit. Symon you get a small amount of our cubes am glad some of the testing. So if you haven't been paying attention to test Elation Power Cubes. Now's the time to do it. Because a lot of the test solution Pasco's that have been coming out have contained either power cubes or hyper cubes or some sort of compost. Both so if you need US get tested. We should be adding to the site and they did push some things that. I guess for those that are out there like you said that Higher level agents can but down to seven seven to eight on a portal. Cool down our dirt reduced ninety seconds and hacks before burn out increased to sixteen hacks so. I think what they're thinking there. Is that if you do get to one portal. You can work that portal harder. You don't have to go to a number of portals so you've got that one couch portal. That's you know twenty feet outside your door. Congratulations you've got one. But you know if you can get to that one you get delays work that one quite more in you don't have to walk to other ones like the reason to really you just. Yeah that one in Do your stuff so if you got to seven to eight that you can build a that'd be a seven or a six build your own now. He's six and one other person. You can make a seven. Yeah so that's not bad. I mean you get up to a six and then you could. You could load up with a bunch of stuff there That's that helps to stay six feet away from him. Stay six feet away from each portal. That might be native if they decide. You know. If you have a key you can remote deploy oh no one else vantage spoofing and and just for for the future. I don't know that we've actually said it. But all of these are in response to co ED nineteen corona virus. So if you're listening to this two or three years in the future and you're the only person on the planet No we're talking about. I don't think it's GonNa get that bad but But there are some other changes that they put in Cancellations postponements we. We kind of figured that those were coming. There was a lot of them that were that were out there Probably one of the biggest one. They'll hit the most people is April fourth. Which is first Saturday? And they cancelled. I Saturday's worldwide. So we were planning to go to. Nfl somewhere Plan again maybe. They'll make it second Saturday or third Saturday or I don't know what what do they cancelled them. So that doesn't mean that they'll pick it up again but I would imagine that they would be more apt to repeat if you you know you had a for Saturday for the fourth and you want to do another one. I would think they would probably be more apt to to allow you to have that. And I'm definitely not trying to use the platform. But I think like a personal call to attention if you still had plans and restore disciplining traveling and even vince or cancelled. If you fall in the grouping of people that are still like let's just go just going away. Please please stay at home. I know it's going to suck to have to cancel plans but now is definitely the time to rethink that. Even if it's not for your safety for the safety of others until we know more about current events sucks. Things are postponed but you'll have gone hand winding it rescheduled if you stay at home. Now Wake and you'll be alive. So that's that's a good thing and they are given quite a bit of lead time so that you can you know if you had that plane ticket or something you were thinking about? Blind that plane ticket for May ninth in Munich? You can three think that by the way that requiem anomaly in Munich may nights is been has been postponed. I don't think they put out any any date on when it's going to be out and that goes with the L. Thirteen thirty one one x European tour. Admission days from the Nice may ninth through July third on. That's that's quite a ways out and assume they're still doing it. But I know someone. I work with had a trip scheduled to Japan and and she was able to cancel everything. Get REFUND WITH NO issues. So if that's your concern you know just calling in see about a refund and save it until the actual anomaly happens in the actual event your House on opposite end of this. I have a feeling that that will be the event that you want to be at we'll have been tripled up inside way too long. That'll be one. Half of celebration. Ever be out. That's GONNA be ready to go and I now that I think about that in thirteen thirty one x they probably just the whole tour is they just nixed that. That's probably why the ninth of May to July third So they talk or is out. Yup Yeah and our why they listed specifically that the mission day in Ames Iowa on May third is postponed on a wide out. One is different from all the rest but they specifically listed that one. So that's weird. Sorry Ames Iowa. So that's That's events canceled. We've got an event going on right now to make up for it. That's cool portal scanning. Who's done it? Seemed by doing it yet. By phone doesn't support it so. I'm kind of my hands at the moment. Yes if you have a supported device if you're in range of affordable and you go to the portal edit menu you should then seed in the menu available portal scanning but as you can see here. Get this right. I do not have it there. No auto scanning raw. Want my phone because unfortunately even on rehearsed in the US My poor essential phone does not support scanning. So what are the requirements to be on that? At this time you would need to have a a our support on your device. So I think it's air corps and then I never remember the apple clotheslines but there is like you can you can go at. You can search that and that is available so I know a lot of devices do support but older devices are more likely to not support you know and on the ingress side. What do you have to be right now? I think it's still restricted to agents. That are list sixteen within the US. So lady anthrax actually. She is able to scan so when we were out last weekend. Right before things started kind of wrapping up We were nearby couple portals. That were just walking distance from the apartment and she was able to scan so those of you. That haven't gotten a scan yet. The feature really seems to be good for smaller objects still like statues smaller class tax installations that you can walk completely around relatively quickly. We select bigger buildings. And other things might not be the best floor portal's scanning because it's just gonNa be a lot harder to gather that data with your phone when you're not standing. You know half a block back from it to to get a whole building which is named said that like you said it's better if it's an object like a statue or something that you can get three sixty you know you could do like a mural on the wall but it. It's a little bit difficult because you're really gonNA get a half circle at that point if possible. Now what are they going to use this information for? Would you like to know a are? Kit is the apple and very very Unique name there. It's I think it's I don't are they doing the same thing for Pok Mon players or this is only ingress. Obey doing standing yes. I don't know that's scan is it only rolled out for Ingress. Serbia and that's it and then if it works right than the roll it out to the other game. I think that I was just about to say that. I mean we tend to be the guinea pigs and I don't mind being the Guinea pig but we we tend to be the. Let's see if this works. Give to the ingress players because if anybody figured out of them you know and if it will work well we'll make it work for them and then we can like you said roll it out for the other. Games being in Beta. We live in Beta. I hope they enjoy pokemon prime as much as we do hint. Poco Mongo players the universe just to stay in twelve eighteen. If I'd pop exotic like nab the burden to we didn't realize that the exaggerates would be called the cove in nineteen when we started this. But here we are well. We were on the forefront. Speaking of I think we have something drop zero. This girl took you weirdness old spaghetti face own spaghetti face Lewis Update. I'm trying to get some pasta off Amazon futile. I'm sure there's probably five or six clues in there. Are you all to solve the puzzle while it was while he was playing mind? Oh the code. It's a wash your hands a God. It came out early. I'm not sure what that bore goodbye. It's big and sorry I feel like I'm a little bit like not paying attention but I am I'm also we're trying this new streaming thing and there's some weird odd things that I'm trying to do like the chat I've been trying to get show the whole show And it's not working so sorry. The Chad is not their spending. And if we're getting kind of choppy or anything like that refining the system we're GONNA BLAME NEMESIS but we're finding the system. He's doing a good job though he's doing a good job nemesis. No you don't like okay. The decoding challenges are we done. With the current set the thirteenth was thirteen fourteen We what eight or nine now so we got more common than I think. We got more coming in this a good time to kind of do that because ages can't get out as much as I could good so now we'll get time for kind of a wave of decoding challenges Ground not not in Good Adam so I'm not somebody that would stay up all night and do them and then have a rough day the next day. Kuni but Yeah so we should do one together. Then let's just start doing them as a team. Okay you you you start to solve. I'll go he up. Looks good to me whenever WanNa give it away like when I'm saying something in our chat because I know vein wanted to start doing so I don't want to be like spoiler spoiler but if we did them all together then it's like wrong kinda pitching in a little bit and will you give me the very first part of it. That could be the easiest part and you can have the rest. I guess 'cause I just I guess I just suck at that so I stuck a bat neglecting but I keep playing anyway people can. That's the thing Yup Speaking of keeping on We had a couple of agents that were talking about how to continue ingress even though you might be sheltering in place Things like that. So there was a an info graphic that was put out talking about things that you could do During the days when the band as you inside so if you're a level one one to sixteen anybody of course recharge recharge recharge and get that. Recharge your badge. So it's a good idea. You don't have to go anywhere to really do that. One just got to have the keys if you're seven to sixteen core. She can create missions on your computer. Then go do them after the sequester. Everything's over that's a good idea. Eight to Sixteen. You can if you have the keys. Edit Portal's remotely improving their name descriptions picture just cleaning up the data so to say ten sixteen. You can Send New Puerto Request remotely using pictures taken with your phone or by other agents. You have proof the real and valid portal candidates and might be kind of tough to do because you had to have the picture in place So but it could be. It could be done. And of course. Twelve sixteen Computer access she can do wayfair and thumbs up thumbs down things on the portal network. Also gets you closer to that. Opr Badge If you have a key of course you can edit the location of the portal remotely. So he can still do a lot And be there But they remind you your health more important than that so journa- badge which you now have a way that you can still get that sojourner age so you can still do a lot I know we'd always had that talk about. You wish you could do more couch pressing so to say yeah. I think it's a good time for OPR like everybody's portals that they've been submitting over the past ever long should all be Get to go and in less than a month rank everybody Wayne Fair and just getting their OPR badge taken up there and We'll see the how that works because I have like twelve new ones just sitting there waiting like oh maybe this is a good one If y'all think this is a good candidate for a portal I guess I could bring it up but actually so basically there's a parking lot In Downtown Madison. That has light posts and they had these plaques on the bottom it's like a concrete circa thing with a plaque on it with a quote from you know like Martin Luther King quote or Thomas Edison. Just you know famous historic figures. And it's you know nice little plaque But there's quite a few of them so it's like I think they would make decent portals. I think they would make great portals for for me like a that would be our biggest farming town if they all get approved but What do you think do you say yea or Nay? Unthinking have to see how close it is to other ones What the portal density in the area is and will they be green most of the time. Don't we ought to can't do that? No I mean they sound like good candidates but again yeah. It's it's hard to tell without knowing what's around it Right well there's like nothing around it. Okay I mean there's the downtown area is like behind some buildings from it There's like one portal near them. Never Know Portland and the nearby nature preserve that I submitted. I forgot that I had submitted so I submitted it again and again and finally got on the third tribe. It was a little different each time but but I got it. So it's in the middle of a nature preserve nothing around it so and I know the reason they probably couldn't figure it out is because it was. You know you look at the map and it's it under the trees now look mine base of a light exactly what it is it could get to one star black to the one that's a one-star it's gotTa Lot history. You missed a billions. Give me some Gazebo live. But they're all done. We have no portals portals. Although at Bortles go get yourself look like go down the Home Depot. Get yourself a gazebo on from on just like act like it's public property you get by go by statue somewhere but it up in the park by a statue of a light post and the free world. I like post was here Skirt on the bottom. You say well. It's one of the world's first geocaches 'cause a Lotta geocaches are at the bottom of Wipro St- we'll see they're all in voting so we'll see if any of them get made. I do have a question Ah saw a little bit of discussion about something. Called an extremely rare shield today ever exist. Oh Oh it's the vanguard check. Was it a mistake now? I swear. I've seen that like a while ago. Like are these old pictures. Yeah well yeah. It looks like it's something that's out of redacted it's in the style of the redacted cheats but it kind of an orangish color kind of like the color of the background of veins wherever he went he talked about he must be uncovering the extremely rare shield interesting. Yeah I may never really more interesting than I thought it was earlier because I was just gonNA assume it was. Just you know something old that they decided not to do or someone faked it like that. That was my first swell so now we know it's going to be in the game when they right after this immense over okay great confirmed. Don't say anything if that's all true. True Yeah I started searching on that and there's a couple things like I've never seen one of these another one. That was a it was like a virus or something but it was something different charging either so there are those I guess. Mistakes was the day Glazer funny that you talk about the link laser that it project is going forward. I'll have you know I'm expecting a delivery. Just want to say the steps link. That's the one. Tell your friends but now it's been kind of interesting thing to find all those ones that were one offs. I mean have have there been one off things that they tried was there for a while. Just went away flip cards used to not have cool down period so is to be able to just ADA JARVIS IMPLICITLY. That changed quickly you remember. I was actually on the ground for the New York City. Finale of the original Cassandra series and there was still no down on slip cards and it was just a battle to see which team of people were standing at. That portal had more flip cards around measurement tiring a very glad that that was implemented at some point but yeah that was a that was a patch after I was thinking about everything else and I'm thinking of well they just turn it into something else. So you know you had like a before we had quantum's you had involves the change to something else. I don't think there's anything that I can think of. That has disappeared. That wasn't the circle K. Cubes God I had a bunch of those and they just something else you original Nice Shirt at the circle game I remember you used to talk about going to circle K and you had all these problems that you'd go in to get a drink to get pass code and it was like you were harassing her. Help trying to get this passcode. That was like your network so yeah. Apparently there were far away. The whole thing ended others fighter. There is as the didn't follow the same things or something. I don't know it was weird but it was annoying because I'd go in by drink. I buy the stuff that you had to buy. I don't know how much money spent trying to get these days for work like crazy But it was just like a test kind of thing is like well buying a drink anyway. I for lunch and get a Free. Code are not a code. It didn't always work. But you got to Code. So that was that was interesting. Yeah and who knows? Maybe we'll do the same thing with the T. We will start. You'll fight. Start finding codes and Ito in T- whether words the hint water had the the cat so hint water they had a thing with them Where in the hint water bottles under the cap there was a code. And your yeah under. There still have a treasure chest that has buried somewhere in. The State of Connecticut contains hundreds of them. It's my I lost. That's your your cash in case you have to pull back. I see emergency stuff just burying stuff so if you have to retreat then you'll go dig it up tournament. I'm sure they'll redeem those codes have exit minimum. That's going to be valuable. Brave new world rite. So I think that's about it. I don't know if we have anything else on there perpetual and Lexicon Lexicon was is was supposed April right. Yes yeah lexicon is now scared of NIANTIC. I guess just approach them and we're like Hey. Can you just do this nemesis thing? Light eater like yeah sure. Okay See. That's that was probably the solution to keeping them out of our universe. We'll just tell them that. There's like a plague and leave. So I see a Debbie Jay blaze asking what allow lexicon is a member of nemesis that we should have been fighting in April but now that our time line is shifting once again nemesis is also you know huddling and staying out of the street so lexicon is not going to be coming to any of our SF on cities because neither will we. And you know I just thought all of those researchers that are stuck in that bubble not going to be a problem for them. They're not gonNA get covert nineteen. We are the researchers I wonder if they end those extremely rare shields. What about a vein? In the BUBALO. They only work there. Only in the bubble well Yard have the code. If you're listening closely to the show I jay blaze get it. He can tell us if it worked. If not. I'll just give it to you again. It's a wash your hands a and speaking of everybody stay safe and indoor's walk around the block get out a little bit but You know stay a few feet away from everyone else and all the things that Ada would say to you as you're hacking when you're washing your hands that will get you twenty seconds then. Jj Blaze said. He watched his hands. Free of that code already. Nice to that means it works. The code works job and You know do some decoding challenges and wayfair and try not to go. Stir crazy and if you have to go out for things Be Safe careful. Look after each other you on your friends and you can listen to all the backlog of all the Asian Academy said don't go stir-crazy that will just off the dude anyway. Yeah what's what's that Ingress maybe we'll have a watching. That will run through all people we could do like a director's commentary. That's almost two weeks of the body well to work with your weeks and forty hour increment. Why my life thing like thanks for tuning in and Hopefully we'll see you next week if we do a show if things there maybe we can do it different time. We'll talk about it. We'll talk about fair and follow the twitter's given a gram our audience to do it again and Tonight stay stance. I wash your tavern.

Twenty I'm agent Gooney Guy and I hear no dewey J muted. How about Jay? I'm Asian Lady Andrex magazine and we had a show filled with died. Act Act like I keep wanting to say for some reason the old Di Dak global challenge. And it's taken over my web camera kinda crazy all those layers and as well as the other tests were liberation lack. Something Chad thing going on. And of course the decoding challenge is a thing which we were doing before the show so staff. Yeah and that's the whole reason for that. Had nothing to do with minecraft. That'll be next week real cheese cheese. That's that's another story DETRO- In minecraft you really WANNA get ou couple layers deep sea anyone for your own. I can't forget about that one but you want to tell us about your if we're on the subject of it so ray. What are we starting to do the drops? We killed a resistance bath operation. Call Me Cape may be. It's for her point and then we went and got it down. I congratulated the team met through on telegram. It was really good op so props to the res- for that. We tried to block it but couldn't so but it was a appalachian trail portals for one of the anchors so while it was up there decided might as well. Hijra Sonali Information for it. I think there was a via walk spin in that one so you can and as far as I know it's still up there so I should share the clue for that too so people are aware thought on the show. If you want are not what to do Jay which I should probably go hike it to make sure it's actually still be nice words. It really was there on. Tell them where it is. They got to find his house telegram. Channel gated. What's the telegram channel? It's in vain guard so I'm going to go forward. The actual clue for it into Agent Academy Telegram. Chat another reason for you to check the check and if you want to keep up with anything. Antiques says a vanguard rain guard. You can go to the telegram channel and follow along the discussion Ford over the all of the images. If you want to bring that up you can got all the images on their we. Get those trump clue to bring something up. I mean can. You don't have to look at this band guard telling you to do something. Van awaited bring out the thing on Asian Academy chat that you shouldn't be an issue in there and if you don't want your account band you brought up it's going. There's a girl. She's looking at trial of cheese is that she says well no feels like that. I was that the club that was that was one of the clue like it's a little more well hidden than what it is that photo. So it's behind the broom but it's up there it's up. They're going to go confirm that it's still up there. But some geocaching might have picked it up. What what'd Lewd. It's like the muggles who who team souvenir assure they will. There's some that would. But for the most part they would they would probably leave it alone so leave and stuff along this week do we. Jay Did you even do some? Some of that. Mccall it geocaching geocaching stuff along this week. It's getting Kinda cold. It's like five degrees outside here. Twenty mile an hour winds. So it's it's time to go out and play some ingress. This bit of kind of busy week. I did a little searching for the test ray because I know we last time we said okay the first one to find the desert so I act act act and of course no tests are yet but been keeping that sojourner live and I've got a new plan. I'm going to try to hack twice a day because I know I'm GonNa Forget that's that's warning one in the evening so when I do forget I'll cover my but so far that's working out and a lot like what's your what's Your Street. Currently where yet How many days since the beginning of the year? So it's like what forty five something like where he is. Okay right at like one fifty six hundred fifty seven days so my job really work on. It did a little bit of feeling as usual. I did have a return to my cell nemesis. The one frog that was the active player popped up on the map again today after six eight months through two legs of a field down in about forty minutes and so I don't think he ought to get to the other end but it's not somebody you know fields where you and we'll probably talk about. We've been just kind of letting things decay and letting some certain things to make some some room for a challenge. Sounds good and lady anthrax. What's your so Jenner up to? Well let me so. My current journey is Francophone is one day. Sorry you're the learner of everybody's Mac there and forty four days right now. I usually don't add. Have One day a journal. Like I'm definitely not retired as you said. Yesterday it was raining really hard and like since I go on X. Lake. I don't try to hack every day. I usually do if they don't at the end of the world and each caught me on a day when Ranger Jersey. Now sorry about it. Yeah I mean. Somehow my current hacking streak is only three days so all time was four twelve. Do with such a long hearing is. I'm winning right now with forty four days. What was your only anyone in Chattan eighteen hundred club? Now that we're we've hit that milestone. Wow Times seven Dorian said Shepton nine hundred sixty one. Yeah because I I lost how I hadn't original street told us to go but I hadn't original streak lost it on day. Seven hundred seventy seven. Because I wanted to sleep in by like thirty minutes so I was doing the twelve hour day to keep it running for for that long so pretty much the way. It was timing it. If anyone out there is still trying to go. Jenner trying to do in the twelve hour. Anchorman if you can. I was going and hacking on my way in work and on my way out of work and that was kind of Rowsley hitting that late twelve hour mark and then on the weekends just making sure that I got out in the morning. Alex I'd like to have a little APP that I I know it tells you the last time that you were in the scanner by like to have a laugh at that tells me hey you act and hours ago being hacked eleven hours ago and all those little all those little reminders. Now I know I can put a reminder in every time but shoot. I can't remember the hack tired easier. If you have a photo we were on. It is probably a lot easier. I I have run across the alley and in my daughter shoes and just shorts and no shirt to make sure that works and at least she's doctors on a good number vein like it was. Yeah by complete accident just like I'm GonNa have to like look up. Does this number is it's special anyway. Does it signify anything? Have no triple lock it right at the Jackpot seven seven seven Jackpot. At least I didn't wait another eight days and get four hundred twenty because everybody really funny real funny a couple of people that stop on purpose couple on sixty six thirteen thirty one different. I didn't want mine to look intentional. After I ain't got I decided I wasn't going to go out of my way to keep it wasn't going to go out of my way to kill. It was just going to be as normal as possible how. It looks like in our chat touch too much. Hit three seventy two right now and at six thirty nine. Oh thanks to run. Run in the long and didn't find. It was a big like Whoa cute. Wait a relief off her shoulders. Like when you just let it in just like oh well I don't have to like go day twice a day for sure. I don't Miss Worrying about that. I remember drifting off to sleep like that. I remember world. Yeah it was less sad when it actually looked like it wasn't intentional. Kill off sweet. I can just say they plan for that. It's not a bug it's a feature or yeah I remember the next day for like just forgetting and just go on crap and then like five minutes layers. Well I don't have to like leave. The stay in my. Pj's today like Oh. This is great vacation so anyway good stuff and I've been doing the same thing this week is doing j just kind of letting stuff drop and it sucks coming up two portals and being neutral and it's normal ones that I'm like okay. I can throw three fields off this one in the being out. No I can't I gotta wait and so I've got to wait till what cried starts at like noon or something. Yeah I think it is. Yeah and that's that's been got. I want to throw a blocker feel dishes. The cell is so darn. Open your soft bank's in your your feel. Ap Boxes All set eight hundred learfield. Jane satisfied roles. I think we're just going to we're just going to bring up our AP generator and just kind of just run that sucker in the ground but you know eight hundred feels doesn't sound like a lot until you start doing the math and it's like oh that is a lot going for five hundred and that challenge in two thousand seventeen and that. I got it just felt like a lot. Oh Nice analogy because during the x o five which for anyone that isn't with the extra five mind controller seem thing except it was two thousand four year so that was the equivalent of taking my controller and going from locked badge gold badge essentially. I was moving that week. That was happening so I got the bare minimum. Got One hundred. Lock the badge and that it was just like. I need to go boxes for fourteen days right. I believe to you so this was less but we have less days to do it in but the per day like this one eighty field today. Basically that one two thousand fourteen. Who wants to do that? Math is one hundred forty two point eight so now quite a devil but close so this is good and and okay so. I'm going to stop talking about that because we're going to get to that in a minute in the news. Also just for people in the chat that are watching this on twitch live. I did do an update last week after the show so the subscribers every month you're subscribed you get an Avatar for the length of subscription basically and they added a whole bunch of new slots so I I changed them around. Now you'll get like a re cursed one if you stay subscribers certain amount of time because it's nice. You'll start seeing those pop up Chad I know. Jj Blades had one at one point. I don't know where they all win. I saw one earlier. Maybe that was me. Or maybe it's this chap anyway so look for that. If you're in the chat and with that let's go ahead and move on into Discussions and we'll go straight into the dyke challenge because we've already been talking about it and this. The starts on February Fourteenth Valentine's Day in one thousand nine hundred. Ut C. N. N.'s. February twenty four th at nineteen hundred. Upc and there's There's infographics going around all the different channels so you can find your flavor. Either neutral owner resistance one or enlightened ones are just look for the telegrams for those willing to at least one and if he wants to make one feel free to put it up on on the site but it will give you all the information. I don't know if it's I mean it's not really that difficult to explain so We we went last week Dole. Yes and bonuses that are there that double drop rate of Ada and Jarvis Double AP resonator destroyed beaver. Lynx destroyed P for fields destroyed. So that's pretty good balance. I think because you've got your getting. Ap for destroying things and you're working towards the challenge of your building things so it's kind of kind of encouraging you to go both ways and I was just telling chat like as soon as everybody's started talking about two K. O. and I was the cause. I've just been letting things go on prep for this and I don't know what happened but there's feels everywhere right now so I think I'm GonNa have to go to the next town. Over and clear blue micro fields and then area have you because everything's feeling okay and we also have a stretch goals so as a global challenge for everyone. If we get to five point five million fields will have two times the drop rate for eight hundred dollars and Jarvis's and if we get to eight million we will get that plus double. Ap for Resonator Link and field distraction and your badge tears you get one hundred to get the first badge three gets you next tier up and eight. Hundred is the top. So the one thing I don't see is. How long does that bonus last if we meet those goals? I think that was said but it doesn't seem to be this. If I can dig that up I don't think it's in that that And it'll be weird because if it's after the event and now people just want the AA P so it's like a people need to put stuff up so I can stri- it and if no one's putting up stuff and just trying to destroy staff then there's issues there you're gonNa have to use a whole bunch of buyers to things and keep going so if we succeed if globally we are successful the bonus for the two times dropout rate for Asia's Jarvis along with the just the Jarvis rate will stay the same until March second and then stretch goal will be to of it. Jarvis along with the double a. p. and that will also continue until. March second okay. It's like another week because leader and if we fail. There's no negative consequence that bonus for just INS along with the bonus drop rate. Which which I think's good and Bryan stated a couple of times. He's not a believer in the negative consequences. Absolutely and the vanguards. We've also discussed that. I think pretty much. Everyone was in agreement. That negative is not really the way to go. I think it's funny because you know people like to complain whether something's one way or the other and so you have people upset that it's only eight hundred control fields which I'm like. I'm like I'm not shooting for that like what they're shooting for going for three hundred. I'm going for the maximum eight hundred because I told myself that. For All of the little nemesis challenge events so is going to get the Max and I feel like this is going to be even more difficult. It was for Aurora just because sure volume of fuel numbers and drought plans yet for. Ap Generator had an old one from Mexico five but it's not the most efficient on Softbank Usage. It actually requires us to flip and kill the parole rather than flipping. Move to another portal. So there's a there's a telegram Chad men where it's pretty much like you gotta hit mass on every single one of these stay awake no going to slack and only go for the first one. Hit the three hundred but it's rural areas. It's kind of hard to do that. Where were you thrown bigger fields instead a lot of fields? So Yeah. Yeah and they give you. If you're a real player you can still get that idiot that mark probably. Yeah and I'M GONNA go for one hundred for sure and then see how I feel. After that for the three hundred I would love to go for eight hundred but I think it's. It's like I would have to travel to a different city to do that. I think because I only have like four A soft bank's and fourteen and I just don't think I I don't know I think it's good that they do smaller challenges and then I also do think it is good for them to do the big ones that it's like. There's no way I could do it around here or do we. Jacob do it in his area but there's other people that are in places that have so many that this does feel like a. GimMe for them and so I think it's good for them to have the The super hard ones for that are super hard for other people. It gives everybody a challenge if you know the history behind that challenge when you see that badge later on you're like Ooh you worked for that right and you know maybe one day though. Think about putting some kind of tech in their multiplying the fields or whatever you get in rural areas to give you more fields per each one or something. I don't know they're they're is. It's just a different game in that area. I mean you just played. I can't say there has been a lot of discussion around this. Just like how to improve and make it more fair for everybody. That is you know if you're rural agents. These kind of things can get difficult if you don't have the churn you don't have the turnover or you don't have enough soft bank's foot cards to are you can just have an AP generator and just keep rerunning it So balances definitely something. That's being considered awesome. That is awesome to hear and I think that's pretty much the challenge so everybody get out there and field what you can as little or as much as you can because if we can get those stretch goals we can get more stuff more. I I really want the eight just for the double. Ap For that extra week. If you'll be nice so I can take our shouldn't be vein to six forever clubs done really matter to me. You'll get there was curse now. Fourteen fourteen all your health ninety you halfway there. I got I got work to do here. Still Ahead of me just strange trying and play more that'd be the AP and that will come out of this event is going to be a lot because even if you're just throwing the fields eight hundred fields is laughing amount of AP and then if you add in going anywhere. It's getting the two times a PDF. They don't call them. Ap generators for for no reason. I mean it's that's the ideas you throw a bunch of those little bitty fields and it just adds up real quick yes so I'm probably going to be extremely lazy with the. Ap Generator idea. That kind of entered my head on out Tuesday somewhere around there but we have an old one that we used locally here for five fields that were a few people but I mean considering using my couch portal estimate often though just lay in bed get this field but no that's I don't WanNa keep farming for that because aren't tomorrow club to see if the plan works with mixed but a now I'll do it start charging five bucks to use the portal keys rental an airport experience there. You go eighty bucks downloading account must have and what sucks is any other year. I would have been on the first Saturday but because it's You know we got an extra day that falls on the Saturday so push because then we would have had a quadruple. Ap Right or they've just done trip but anyway maybe maybe they'll do something anyway because that'd be fun. Maybe they'll forget anyway about that day. So let us know what you're planning to do for Didac challenging and then of course you did afterwards and I don't know maybe we'll talk about on the show while still be going on next week if we have a show next week feel right so we get to touch base. Where we're at. That's sounds good. Even if that's it the field heels okay so we also have some info from packed from PA. Shapiro the Truth Seeker. He he posted round seven of the next drop for the temptation would be in Taiwan. I started reading that kind of close. It they've mentioned that they had to make some changes for exactly how they said. I think it was Safety reasons I don't think they actually said safety but it seemed to me like they were planning on. Maybe doing that. Drop in China somewhere and I think that the the virus and the and things are like Ed what we don't want to do that. So maybe the corona virus had a little bit of effect on it but the hint and the graphic that he he dropped on the first one Some people recognized it as the logo for Taipei Public Library and then there was another part of the graphic that a character and so from that they kind of guessed that it was at the children's library the type Taipei Public Library. I thought that was like the transformers logo. I note And then the next day said the drop was at eleven thirty local local time so I I assume that drop happened. I don't know I haven't heard I don't know I'm GonNA assume that it did to. Yeah and then today he just this afternoon I think it was. He put another post out. And Senator is going to be live drops by the end of February in the perpetual heck's athlons cities in the Western Hemisphere. So if you're in San Antonio Salt Lake City Miami one is Edison or Tijuana. Keep Your Eyes. Open for those live drops if you're in lighten. So so. Which city are you headed for areas or Miami? We'll actually both be in Niamey there. You Go y'all GonNa drive by Huntsville and pick me up on the way I mean if you want. We can probably pick you up from the airport. There hunts down in doubt more options. Orlando like Orlando Practice. You're live drop and drop one as you go by practiced right in. My face is Lack Honk the horn. Something like that. We also had the decoding challenge as started. It's the alchemist and so far. There's been a roughly eight hundred solvers with. I love math being the number one and the hive mind which is normally number one number twelve. Still staying up on the leaderboard so that mind is solved. All eight challenges. In the total elapsed time of six hours forty five minutes fifty three point nine seconds so evidently. I figured it'd take a little time off and still hold lead. They were right so and we were working on that just a little bit before the show. Yeah on the or is it. Don't WanNa show that you just did. Well it's a flash. I don't WanNa give any spoilers out but it's the first word puzzle. Image says staff you can go to the open in the show notes do but you can go to. The Community. Always wanted to say forums. But that's like you know twenty years ago cheek loss right so anyway you'll find this image there they'll send you the link and then you'll have to read it and figure out how to do this and if you figure out how to do this it'll give you a a code that then you put into tiny dot. Cbc Slash whatever that code is and then that will bring up a code. And I believe if you saw that code. Then you put that to the scanner. There may be another step in there That's as far as I've gotten. We've gotten collectively the CABBIE collectively. We're all Jews yelling things and he was actually. I felt like the support. There was was collective so it was all good. I am hungry though I wanNA. I WANNA grilled cheese now. So it's it's It's good stuff. So good luck on the challenge. I like I feel like it would be good. Maybe after they give out the solutions if they do if we go through some of these that we've done personally and just solve it from beginning to end we can say. Hey this is all spoilers. So if you don't want it don't watch this and it can just be like short videos but I think people see the process at least had because you can do this in so many different ways that it might encourage more people to try the next decoding challenges and the the ones they do on the regular. So we'll do that so I'm going to try to finish this one and then submit it and I will get on the board with my one solution since I got screwed out of the first one. Yes bitter old Pixel Pixel Bites in chat says that. That's just the tip of the iceberg. So you might have. I will have zero then. Ours is better than what I'm still like. I put time aside to learn this so I haven't done any of it yet. Well so see maybe we can do one together as video and maybe we can get some people we can live stream it and get some people in chat to help us along and even if it's just I just hate try try using this or that and I don't know that may be something called to do. Just in general kind of have a collective academy solve the puzzles together. Kind of strange like a hive. Mind well I didn't want to go there but like an academy of mind. Kademi WIND CEO a study group. Yes a study hall in the Academy so That's what we don't have anything else. He might have anything they want to talk about now. Not that I can think of other than big trials. That's all I can think of right now is just fields. I already I just went in hanging out tonight. I message one of our agents had the draw for the old school. Ap engine. I'm like hey so that spreadsheet cake and if you might want to check out Huntsville Alabama and design a nice AP generator and send that my way feel free. Yeah so hearing person capsules with keys and all the stuff needed. We've got real. She's related conversation topic in the chat. What is the best cheese cheese? That's what we can in the show on. Delvina sounds good. Isa's chair veins curl. Geez with just American Jesus is really good actually potter butter. Butter is the best downfall week we could. We could really hang on him. Was there was no academy logo bird into the cheese. Those posters are coming in. We're working on that Because the Chinese New Year and the Krona. It's GonNa take a little bit longer but hopefully we'll have him by Christmas next year. The toasters that will burn the Agent Academy logo in it for you so go ahead and sign up and soon as they finished with the link. Laser that's the next laser imagine grilled cheese cut into triangles and then layered layer field of grilled cheese cheese. I als- relievers right there. Bottom cheese top. Yeah so do you feel like you need to cut your grilled cheese in triangles. It's not a girl not training triangles. That's it's a moral imperative. Gave you like a square grilled cheese. Would you eat it honestly? Yeah Kinda girl and Cheese. But what if you don't have a knife just go? Yeah eater. I'm good either way but I would prefer one in triangles all going to be in mouth shaped pieces really fast. It's not gonNA last. I love the grilled cheese was some Chili or some Brunswick stew would okay. We're getting hungry now so everybody go eat some triangles no matter what it is and then go out tomorrow after you know lunch after you have another triangle sandwich and throw some triangles bunches of them. And we'll see all next week sometime will throw the time somewhere maybe five minutes before the show but TV twitter all that stuff and thanks for tuning in once again for coming Back Lady Anthrax Code Code Code. Okay we'll give you the code This one you could. You might guess it's a real easy puzzle. It's just a die dact a they'll put that in there. I tested it earlier when I misspelled it. And it worked so hopefully. It's still words because I did remember to go back and change. Did Things Happen Anyway? Lady Anthrax. Thank you for showing up. Thank you for having me. The rose between all the thorns thorns. I think he did go. People Thorn Amongst Thorns and Grizzlies. It is to be validated. Also will and you still dact just like you did Jamie Jamie's it should be A. Act a good day is double checking. If it's wrong I will fix the show by the time you hear this at work. So thanks everyone and we'll see on next week.

Welcome back Kademi number sixty seven two thousand nineteen. I'm agent Gooney Guy. I'm Jay and I'm agent vein to looks like has some coffee ready for the show staying awake keeping them on so late bedtime guy. Time changes make things weird. I guess that's what it was then. So sixty seven and we've got a lot to well. Maybe not super bunch talk about but enough for the three of us together about I think how about how about you start tonight today. Well last time. I kind of alluded to a long term goal and hit that goal We recently won one one hundred cycles in our cell. So that's two years of beating the frogs and so we thought we'd celebrate that with one hundred layer bigger up so he did one hundred layers for one hundred cycles at one hundred hours so one hundred hours after winning one hundred cycles we through through one hundred seven layers over our cell which was really interesting because we did it backwards we only had like five anchors in spots I went to anchor number four and it was gone twenty four hours before the they removed it. It was a fire station so we were scrambling to get to one hundred but we we hit a hundred and seven so level fifteen during the up so every time three days after our last show and then I just just recently went to a a first. Saturday did a little wind trading. I mean a little bit of plain so bracket in about two hundred eighty five K.. So that was triple P.. So probably that'll be no eight hundred and eighty some once they triple add up so little boost to get me to sixteen. I don't think I'm going to beat you guys at all but I don't know because he this is. This is like the hot topic. I think we could start selling tickets to this. How far is Gooney Guy Office sixteen? I'm I'm too far. I'm about a million put a number on it in one on. I won't one point one million. Yeah Sixteen I just hit fifteen at the November number I F S am pretty certain you could get a million before I can manage to get like the fifteen point eight that I still need to get. AH TO GET FOLKS team. Hopefully but I don't know so sounds like the real race is going to be between me in vain I mean. That's you know he he should be able to a million maybe we have agents stats now. with Oliver Scores on it so we can keep track there and see how we do. Yep If you WanNa get you can we can give you that happen or the that Lincoln the show notes and see where you end up and then if you on both beat me then I'll just have to cancel my account and obviously I'm not playing anymore. Why I just signed up to the group? It really was that easy We'll start crying because I hadn't really used agent stance for probably like since I really started using prime because it at the beginning it was not. I don't think it worked or something are uh-huh maybe they've tried at the beginning. I don't think they have the copy working for a while but now yeah. So you're telling me hey you know you haven't done your stats so go do it. And I just You know went and hit the copy button and then opened up agent staffed and immediately asked. Hey you have this on your copy board. Are Your clipboard. You Want To you know upload slowed it and I was like yes. Let's do it and you're even like oh I guess you just updated because it's now new and there I was I was really close to them. And then all of a sudden dislike I just dropped so. That's okay well. If you're if you're trying to catch up with Intel OPS CBS. He might have difficulty with that because the board on that one. Yeah you are. I The only thing that I'm leading if I juggle a the ball I think for the last month I was leading for eliminator but I really had to work to get me to the top. You guys near the top for a couple of other things so the top for what were you. I mean. I've got thoughts but no one else really has stuff out some words so this really count. It does count. He's just like he's got. He's got him for recruiter. You know that's GonNa be hard to pass at my five recruits roots. I think was one of those so thank yes yeah no. That's that's I mean recruiters not coming back. If he's from always heard on the forms Ormes at least an as Kurt duration. So maybe eventually like locked badge will go way. That'd be nice should someone. Wow someone should poke Andrew. Oh and say. Hey maybe I should be funny to see like what are the totals on that for recruiter like do do how many people have onyx recruiter. There are people that do only have it. Don't really know what the numbers are. I think through agents stats. You can't look at just global for anybody that's uploaded for different things so you can probably ground and find that but there are some people that took that very seriously as a. I'm going get the Sonics. Oh really own it but don't know if there's anyone out there that would have it refers to if you say something. Tell us Tros some screen shots and I'm thinking we're gonNA maybe future shows. We may have agent of the week will pick out a stack. See who's the top so gets more people in age stats. And who knows. Maybe you'll be the top. It's agent Dewey Jay again. Yeah clearing you're going to quit picking the winner of this each. It took me an hour to figure this out but I remember one for again Our we're going to have fun during double A.. P. Yeah so yeah and that starts soon. I guess we'll talk about that in a situation Jason Report. What else y'all have going on? I didn't really have much going on this week. Just just working stuff I have been trying to Get more. AP Heat two. I wanted to get sixteen before the double. AP Event and I don't think that's going to happen. But I'm GonNa you see how close they can get to it and looks like yeah you get a push that button. Yes so you are going corner occurs if you can get it. I just can't really see why not. Yeah like that's a good reason or rush that but it's going to suck but it only have time to get you know some some some levels right. We had a guy that he figured out that he wanted to the recurs and he did it just before first Saturday so he got the double a. b. he and he could really rack up all the points real quick so I think he job six levels in like two hours. Of course he went from one to you. You wanted to seven and if you're going to do that make sure you do it a couple of days before he was like oh I got to go over and over so yeah he timed it just right now to see if I can get the score. Can I get it right at forty million alien like forty million in one recurs linked. So it's just like Riley a million recurs right You know you don't get a p furry cursing but I mean you get the get the badge the wings and in any of your metals that are double onyx or more you get the multiplier on so any time that you look at an agent now or prime crime only for the scanner. You're GONNA see the little recurs wings next to their agent name and then you'll see the wings on any of their badges that are cursed sleet and then it's going to be hard to see like how how they're going to add in more levels later on because it's like do they just go off total. AP which I seem they would have to versus you know ric IRST AP and then to those is levels at into the whole recurs recurs recurs stats. Diana doesn't like they usually do. They're just going to say starting now. And then you go from there so the way it would like to to see it like just going off of his speculation side is if there are going to be any additional the levels that they take recurs in as a factor. So if you want to hit like a level seventeen you've gotTA rehearse once get back up to sixteen eighteen and it has some other badge requirement plus the recurs in badge to hit at X. level. And then if you want you can recur to that point or you can just keep going and just have the benefits stack that way. There's always some incentive to keep going and striving for something higher because you know we're all hopeless addicts so no grants but need more a team personal. So what else. What else have you been up to bang? Looks like he's been busy. Yes yes he gets ahead a couple of things on the list a few just the future things so I think my one follow up item that I had from the previous show was the late that I attended in sleepy hollow New York back on in October twenty sixth so did survive. I'm still here. This senior. Lacrima body survived that and specific. So we're doing good so far it. It definitely was a mental thing for me I think towards the end of the event there when we're getting the patches I'm like okay. I need to sign up for the next thing and go for go rock tough and segue into that. We also have a agent that just completed a there. I go rogue tough yesterday. ASSUME YOU EA- shoutout to to her joining the garage. RT's as a you know ingress Gret so our community is is continuously growing and now just a shout out to her for completing completing her first tough event as well. And I think yeah for Saturday ended up racking in just shy of four hundred thousand I got I think. Three hundred sixty four K. A. P. Swim triple culture that that'll be nice In going in I've got a lot of notes on here for the test solution for those. That weren't aware on Saturday. So yesterday Philadelphia had a competition for the HELVETICA test. Right and Stuart Lightner those of you that are in operation. Essex should know that name those of you that are not Stewart Lightner is one of the wonderful folks that had been working with nemesis a little bit in the past but currently appears to be doing a little bit of freelance work quote unquote stealing the test. Ray Pieces in trying to give them to the agents. It's to assist their factions if they can gain them in the Tesla so stewart was in the city of Philadelphia yesterday with with a tester up and first agent to find him was awarded that test. Row after completing a small challenge agents be on the lookout for similar events. I can tell you that from Philadelphia. It was a very fast paced and interesting event. Not a lot of ingress play happening. Scanners were open agents. were out on all wall. Street corners both factions everywhere If you've ever seen paranoid agents back in the old days people looking for anyone that has phones out just imagine that times tin and you have a physical Tetra Afterwards Stewart was available to answer a couple of questions for Essex. We had some juicy details sales in there as well as some rumors of potential exaggerates influence coming to the scanner soon trademark definitely on awesome trademarks night. So that means you think like any event like anything Stewart was kind of leaning more towards the like he was really paranoid when we started going into these questions. Afterwards you know like you just kinda started looking around and Said said we seen them influence the scanner before I think he was hinting towards the anime. A little bit on that one so read read into that how you will but it seems like we've got a couple of things that are coming soon and really that's all we know. I noticed something a little different for an all my scanner. We'll get to that a little later. Maybe that's died in knows. I missed out on the first Saturday of this month. I plan to go and I I got up and I was doing some engrossing and then I was like okay. Well I need to leave like any minute now. Because it's like you know two hours then get to where I need to go and and so I went to go look at the map and I was like Oh eight? It's not in Birmingham this month and Mississippi it's uh three hours away so I'll be in our lake if I start now so I'm going to just miss the south on it to say banner Ruck. Have you heard much about the banner rock for a a newer revision to the banner rock. I think this the three point zero revision. I haven't read a whole lot of the details in yet but I've I've been getting a lot of things like hey. Are you coming out of the banner where you're going so I may go to Philadelphia for that. I may go to DC somewhere but we need a sacrifice the the banner rocks you always need the quote Unquote Ruck Virgin. Try to keep things you thirteen. I swear So you just need somebody. That hasn't done a ruck before there's a couple of other requirements in their go out to a banner. I believe you need to hit a certain distance since And you have a good time and you get a patch for it. So if you're interested now is definitely the time to I. A couple of people blend our telegram. We're talking about. I've never done rock so this might be a good way to start. So yeah that's how the addiction starts. That's the gateway drug you you get a patch hatch do some stuff and then the next thing you know. You're signing up for stealth outs and then up straight into the garage. Heavies it just skipping over everything else actually. No you're waiting on a beach in some foreign country right or eating bugs. I really bugs challenge participants. They I think really love that part for me bugs. So is that that everybody staff with this week. Should we move on. Let's move on so we will move on to you. It's a situation report no bump video bumper this week. It just audio but we have a few things Big thing is ingress update two point. Three five two added some things such as a safety messages. Everybody's love those so much in Pokemon go and and Harry Potter Wizard Unite. We must get those in ingress. So not really shocker there. I'm not sure anyone cares one way or the other. So far has been when I go to open the APP after after I put it in my car holder so I can start picking up. Xm On the way to work in. It's like remember driving and I'm like Oh and just I need recharge. XM They know car. graphing I think I saw screen shot somebody with redacted and a couple of those messages is in there Mike. Riley pulled that off dont. I don't even know what happens if you. I assume that it just does. You can't open right right. Maybe there's some rooted says your scanners out of date and it tells you need updated. I mean that was the last time I did. I've taken her off. I found since then. So yeah maybe it's a skin coming soon. It's got in some of this at work anyway. Also in the creased. XM brightness on high end devices and holy names pros mini. Yeah that portal. Names thing is really really handy especially when you're in a an area that you have a lot of portals and you know that one of these is the one I'm looking for four and instead of having to open them up and see what they are just you know put your finger on it and hold for a short time. It'll tell you what the name of that particular portal is and One of the things I found out is if you do that. That also has a little pop up. There's a Hacky or hat kilos so that comes in real handy If you're not driving down the street but if you're a passenger in a car and you have that out You can kind of click on hold and then when you get within range slide up get your key go onto the next one so I really liked that. That's a good one and I know vein earlier said that that's been there a few releases but I just noticed it too and getting a lot of use out of it. I like that feature a lot so good work nights. If you're walking so you can even like preemptively tap on the portal and then when you get in range you can make the selection. Yeah so that's a nice little feature. Yeah and then also they have added help text. Indicate wire portable link cannot be created that that'll be interesting. I haven't actually seen that pop up yet. So if you're if you're over as one of the situations royal pop up newly. Hey you're you're under control field so these kind of kind of similar to the one that you know they used to say long distance link what what is it. Long Distance Lincoln. It's unverified or something and try and do too late but it won't go. I assume it's similar to that. I think a few of the situations where like if you're a portal on you already have the maximum outbound links in those situations or the older messages I believe redacted USA have a a few of those where like origin portal does not. It's not like going resonated if you happen to be under attack right after he fully deployed loyd similar things like that. You had to be handy do you think. What do you think they added in a feature? Where if you work covered over it actually said would you like US to select the port and the nearest portal. That you could take down to basically we get rid of that cover. So it's like head over. Destroy that Porno Kennedy thing like a blocker. Well no you're covered over so you can't make a field or link from. Hey why don't you go blow up this portal uh-huh and then you'll be able to almost make it too easy. I think it'd be nice for like extension of the navigate feature feature. I I miss being able to actually press anywhere on the map and get the navigate functionality where I could say no I want to go over here or want to in the paying to go to this next portal so I really hope that that functionality is coming back at some point and as an extension of that other use cases I think for newer agents that would be nice thing especially when you are a newer player and you're entering into an area with the perma field even just being able to get a little bit of a hint saying you need to go over here and take care of this portal before you're going to be able to do anything else in terms of links. Yeah I guess you you don't use I. It's hard to figure out where you need to go. I mean you have the you know the Stock Intel but Yeah like I can see. That would be just figure out you're just covered. Can't do anything. Also they added in some store items at the end of the Carousel self slide. So when you get there you'll see a few things like fracture pags and and some bundles. I believe there's a builder bundling and attack bundle. And last time I checked. It was twenty five trackers. I don't know about surprise over. I don't know how often I just really really need twenty five acres right now but evidently you can do that. Yeah I wonder if it's too because they also added in Nanto packs for level one through six or something. which are I believe some sort of bundles for new players? So I wonder if it's to kind of get the new players. Hey there stuff you can buy to make life easier easier. I guess for you could be just like a handful of burster. A handful of ultra strikes. I think our offerings right now. I think there's one floor resonator nadirs as well. It's just supposed to be if you're just shy of being able to complete whatever you're doing. It's a micro transaction just for that that specific little amount of items to keep going but I think they're testing it and I mean I'm not sure about the rest of you but I don't think the newer agents that would really necessarily be helpful for me like it might be. I know the first Saturday I just blew all of my resume tres. I was the only thing I had left for leg resonator because I wasn't expecting to go so I didn't load up so on the way home like oh well you know. There are a couple of links. I'm like I can't throw a couple of links I've got to go get some reservoirs and have been nice to been able to buy you some four some five listen you pick up one and twos but maybe four five six and seven so hard to find if you're not in an area that has a whole bunch of different portals lit up so true in terms of like I always just think if I can just hack. So if I had the ability you to hack even an enemy portal getting a little bit more payout from it. That would be just as good as maybe like a Nanno packs of the nanno packs. Are you know ten twenty items at a time for those specific type too where I almost think something like the for Saturday bundle would be more benefit to your their player so if they could purchase one hundred twenty are ones or you know like fifty x and P at a time for their level he might it get outside of the Nano Pack. It might be a little bit builder you know. Were a little bit extra some of the other pack styles that are in there now but I think that would be more of a benefit if I'm locked out of doing something as Asian rather than just twenty barristers at a time. Yeah yeah his you know ingress really much more different than their other games in that aspect in the you need a lot of items like you need to Add the resonator shields and all that just to get the AP where normally like pokemon go. You need balls to throw the things you can make it easier to catch stuff with some of the fruit but like I have. I'm I'm telling all that crap away like no uh-huh fruit and winter. I just need balls. Can we quote you on the crowd like dairies for ingress. But no you're like no I don't I don't eat any of those. Like what if you had that you could play on an enemy portal. That would you know not not necessarily Ahmad but an expendable item that you could deploy on an enemy portal. That would increase your trickle hit ratio for the next couple of burster or something similar rat. Like if you're lower level agents and you need appeal off some shields. That are a little bit stubborn on nearby Puerto now everyone is going to screaming. This isn't absolutely horrible. Idea by a just speculating on different things. That obviously you'd want to consider at our game balance and how an item like that would work but there are ways to make the initial progression for low level agents. It's better other than just like a trickle of Lowell. BURSTER is low of all resonate hours right because I mean till you get to five. The you don't really need so much the birth as much right. You can't really old go find neutrals. Yeah so it's so it's like go in and do that so it's like what items can you get to facilitate that or you know like you said maybe there's some kind of boost for lower level all players. That's an item that they can use for thirty minutes that makes them Attack is a fifth level player. Or something you know or like a cracker light. Yeah for busters. Yeah it's like a breaker but then like some sort of item that actually boosts the level of of the Portal for like you said I can get five all day long fives and below but when it comes to the six and the sevens like there's just not enough players around here for me to get those so and I can get the aids all day long because we do have a couple eighth right. That's and that's the farm and we don't go like well. Let's just have Three eights and won seven and six so we can get every all the other resonator. So what if I could almost. It's like an issue in like downplay. The are up the out of the portal where I need to get the resonated and it doesn't actually change the level oh the porter portal. But the output for me doesn't have to be for everyone. I guess it could be a group thing too but it just for the next hour. Something is me whatever level need or something. I don't know the mine was like that either rainbow. It just changes the output to to anything but the chances are all over the board. So it's all randomize could hack on constantly but you might get an eight. That sounds like a slot machine but no what I liked that maybe it could even be like a lifts lot thing if the Glitz I'll lineup. That almost sounds like doc watson the capsule but I'll go ahead yeah. We don't really do that anymore. So muscle just sprinkle it in again. Okay okay. So that's the update. Oh except for the speculative fix to address the soft lock when returning from background. which which sounds like kind of possibly the issue that we talked about with Because speed lock in some instances and again to like a low Wifi why fight Or something because a lot of times I am driving with some other APP on instead of ingress in that situation then dive into where I'm going to be playing ingress and pop ingress and so maybe that is part of the issue. Is this like switching the APP and it's like in some weird state. Yeah it's not the active statement it kind of gets lost sleep and it should also return to the active state a little bit quicker so like if we do have the APP in the background and bring it to the foreground. You shouldn't have to wait quite as long for it to to pull down details and I do think it can potentially help with this. Be Locked. But that's GONNA depend on. How fast how are you moving and a lot of other things? I think that's more just like the long. Wait eight to get current state around you. Yeah Yeah and I think there's a there's like multiple issues their speed lock but then there's these other issues that are more bugs like I don't know the thing we've talked about the password. It's like entering into a low sell signal just briefly. I think it's briefly as you're turning and you turn and your scanners like pushing you one direction. Their service out. They're supposed to be over here. Because you're you went through this space of like they didn't know where your so they're predicting that you're continuing down the road. And then he turned off and then they're like wait. You're not supposed to be there. You're supposed to be over here. You're lying to us your spoofing so speed. Lock your super so close that your aunt five times but I know around here. We're just like we're GONNA move if we're going over forty mile an hour just back out of it and make sure that you go in and see if it's still running in the background so not only acquitted but then go in and and get rid of it in the background and that seems to work really well But like you said you get low seller. It's GonNa take a long time to come up but hopefully they're fixing it. I mean if they figure out what it doesn't for they will. Speaking of fakes and stuff are doing stuff niantic. Brian mentioned they're working on a subscription an ingress subscription But until they get that figured out which will take some bit. They're they're wondering what would be something that we would pay for monthly like a bundle with a metal that increases each month that you buy the bundle for like seven thousand Cmu. I I guess it depends what that bundle is almost just want like no items to come with this lake. I already have enough trouble. Managing inventory as is on the day to day. I just WANNA be able to support With this so if they are going to subscription row where you get a scanner metal as a support that just says has supported gingrass for this amount consecutive months. And then it tears up if you have a streak going or something like that or just if if you've supported for X. number of months it just takes off like any other badge. I would almost prefer to just have that rather than try to saddle me with a pass code every month for X.. Amount of items. I imagine some players want different things so some people might want that they might want a hundred item Adam fifty item badge and the passcode coming along with it. But I think if NIANTIC is willing to offer that in a couple of different varieties maybe you could have this supporters here and support tier with items or some other perks so sugar daddy batch I it is I mean. I think it's good to get rewarded for supporting NIANTIC. And I think it's it's interesting to see like what if what if there is a badge just for you know it's your in essentially buying that badge but it's like no. I'm showing my support. I'm basically paying them each mile because I enjoy their game Enough and in turn. They're giving in me a badge Because I'm nice enough to do that. the bundles in in stuff that that that they may talk about. I hope that they do something where it is a code. You know if they do something like that. So it's like you can use it when you have brew or even better. I think if they made the stuff that you bought with. CMU in a different inventory that was basically an unlimited inventory. Or something that I think it would. I think they would sell more thank ran out of Amari full like if I get at some bundle. I'm going to have to delete a bunch of stuff just to have the bundle or I'm going to be over cap and and that's painful as it is coach. Good idea because you can like you said use it when you need it or if if it's you know you're on an op and somebody needs something it's like. Okay here I continue. It's in your code and you can let somebody else burn it for you. I just have a hard time with those guys like I. Have you know from every anomaly. I have a couple cards. But they're sitting in the waiting for an emergency right like more to drop it and you know got a bunch of crap right now. I'm already full with grab so now. Even more with grab and I don't know it's just it's it. Sounds like the answer. Is You got to do more ops. So that she can use them. I don't think I I mean I always wanted to do but do what we're seeing more shards on more remote islands that's one of those escorts who designed for you agent that sitting on a mountaintop somewhere. They're out in the middle of the ocean and they just really need a flip card if they send me a method I if I'm recalling correctly I do you believe there was some discussion from Niantic. In the forms. Regarding the fact that they were having issues with like items as passcodes because something to do with I think at least like the apple store this to redeeming passcodes through the scanner APP. Where for iphone users? You have to go into the infomap to do code redemption. I think there's some regulations nations that play there where you can't necessarily have item on those for sale outside of the scanner which is why the anomaly medals and different things now have to be loaded into the scanner rather than something that you can go onto a website and purchase a kit. So I'd almost like to see you rather than a pass code. What if you took the contents of a pass code boil down into one item and then made that item something something that could be traded between agents Obviously you'd have to be a little bit more careful with something like that or even if I could just designate if I could go into the the store and say that I'm purchasing this bundle for this agent some sort of mechanism in play there to achieve the same thing because I've heard from a lot of people all that either Organiz for Saturday's just organized events or in the case of. What do we J. saying with OPS? Being able to have the flexibility of having items encode form that you can give out to other agents is part of the reason why so many of us bought those in the first place so the loss of that functionality is why a a lot of people are saying they're not buying kits at the moment. Yeah I like that idea of like being able to hand kids. We've talked to the past about Some way to like basically trade with other agents without just having to drop it on the ground and I know that that's like you know there's some people who probably think that's like inherently inherently part of ingress that like. Oh no you can't just trade with so many to put it on the ground but I think it would be great in a situation like this. You don't WanNA running like get a bundle for someone for prize and then someone else pick it up and I still think there probably should be something where it's like. Well well no you need to be even rage with within range a some things or or sending capsules via links the all the way back in the day or like no we want to send capsules via links and fields with Marinko hurdle overcome. But that would be fun but in. I'm trying to think I mean you don't trade. Anything in wizard withered unite. Right and then you can do a little bit of trading in Pokemon with you do poker on but yeah you have certain amount of stardust depending on the the pokemon and this situation I apologize anybody out there that is super serious with Pogo. I know the basics six in staff and and the higher level friendship the cheaper it is to like trade stuff I think drapeau currently montly if ingress has some sort of mechanism for that as well for for exchange. Maybe if you did have those kids where oh well. If you'RE GONNA trade trade this kit you need to offload. I don't know maybe like micro amount of Catholic matter or items or something some way to do this. Yeah Yeah and you know if they started doing daily which maybe the start working on with with. Now that everything's moving to prime they get all the back end stuff done but or on some kind of daily Things missions that Agents can do that that possibly get just a little bit of Sihem. Then you start. Getting people used to making purchases with chaotic matter on the store. Then hopefully that leads to them actually sleep purchasing more stop maybe more inventory space. That will be nice. He has so many new item types that have come into the scanner over the last few years that you know I know everybody else. That's out there. That is a hoarder like myself. You've got fifty soft bank's you've got hundreds of viruses you're looking at all the Multi Heat Sinks Ito's it becomes a nightmare because everything that you're holding is something of value because it's super valuable. Bananas is need to level up. Yeah just the boring items but it's it's like a house no matter how big house she get you fill it up and then you you and you fill it up. So what's is exactly why they could make money off that there's some people who will just Jesse keep buying space and keep buying space and because they it's an outlet for them to actually give them money third. Give them money at all for something that feels like a value to them where people who are better at managing their space and better are like well. I might be a little bit but I don't know I I know that's always been kind of kind of a feel part of the inventory management and see what you can do with your your space and that but it at some point I think that's also a good excuse to not add space mechanics into a game like let's work on everything everything else but tell them it's this or that and I think it's okay at this point. I mean I don't know how big you can get your bags and stuff and all the other other games but you know starts on some space people bite also the AMA opened up. But it's already closed so we should expect answers in the next couple of weeks. Sometimes it's a couple of days usually it's a couple of weeks but it's always interesting to see the questions and the answers that come from those so keep an eye out on those and maybe we'll get them during the year seven event which will be starting in like five days. I think next Friday this Friday this upcoming fifty the fifteenth. It'll be Friday. Solano run for two weeks straight through until the thirtieth out a little bit more. Oh Yeah Yeah and hopefully that mean double mods double AIDS Those sevens. It'll be double some. Maybe they'll just go ahead and go you know that triple. AP You wouldn't really well for. I say let's just triple A.. P. This one. That's what you're betting on isn't it. That's how you'RE GONNA get a reverse. Then go go with that. I mean it's just a million right knock out a million in a week. That's not specially was double A.. P. I mean that's that's Oh you mean before. I don't know a million before jelly belly you can do uh-huh. Yeah Not Huntsville Alabama. We just don't have enough portals. That aren't green. Yeah and that's the thing we when we did our hundred we the I seventy five or so cycles. We had a lot of competition and then and it just got to the point that we're just beaten up so bad that it got tough. I mean I drove forty five minutes yesterday did get the nearest link. That was great so we got to back off a little bit and let them come back to life but I mean it's the way of anybody not that you've dominated an area you're just going to kill off the other side. Yeah this is the game where you need both sides to you know to do anything so she probably back up on the dates. Because I think in the past been remembering this as running longer because it's felt long after all those nights in the field trying to get the W. p. but it looks like AAC November fifteenth might be when we get the you know start. It could be a little bit later. I think in the past for your six it was November. Seventeen th through the twenty six th so I would the similar timeframe I know every every year that it's the same time. Brian tweeted that it would be the fifteenth that Friday start. Yes good time to start on Friday because people more active over the weekend at fixing the website at the same time during the podcast. Well Hillary how dare you we got the trusted reporter version. Two is Been in Beta testing and looks like group. Says it's gone well well With the need to work on an issue which means it's not going to be out of likely be announced in a week or two so that's rebuilding and sounds like it's going well. I'm really to the public release. Andrew did state that the vanguards had been working to test so I am at least able to say that I was also helping tests the program out and I know talking with a lot of agents. There have been a lot of concerns that. How is this going to work if the TR's are novice and to that? I think I'm safe in just saying that. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised that the system will work. It's not like you're never going to be able to find the means to submit reports so a lot of people were really worried. How are we GONNA do this if we don't know who the? Tr is are. You don't need to know who the our work work without that. You just need no place online that you can submit the form and it the submit button. Yeah so once once the details of that go public like and everything's online. I really hope that this starts to to quell some of us. Spoofer problems that were writing it too. 'cause right now I've been spending a lot of nights it's just talking with people saying okay. We've got a spoof here we've got a spoof. They're gathering all the information and then trying to do what we can to keep things in check but obviously we need the greater community to solve that problem through just reporting that way hopefully nights it can improve upon their process for future iterations. Yeah and you know you have those people say. Why can't you make a BOT figures that out and just takes care of it but you know when he time you do a bite? You're going to run into problems. I know that I was looking at a report Just a couple of days ago about somebody who his account just went away and he couldn't figure out why his account went away a and what he kind of tied it down to Wasn't he added Google Account and then he tied his accounts facebook account and then he unlinked facebook account and that kind of screwed things up and So yeah he's looking at Just a loss of his account because of kind of those mechanics and I think some of that was was that they tried to fix it on the back end and it didn't go well or something like that but any time we have a BOT. You'RE GONNA find that exception and it's it's going to possibly screw things up. Yes we should be able to help that aging out so they like if your situation is still open I think I caught a little bit of that on. Read it but if that situation is still open in. That agent hasn't gotten some sort of restoration. Shen just make sure that we're still openly communicating those things to Niantic. Yeah and I think that's where he was at is that he was. He was still communicating and they were looking at had you know rebuilding a database and the whole nine yards. So I know that NYNEX seems to be going above and beyond to fix the situation. The stuff stuff happens right like like I had someone delete my And many account at work and I need that to get into website. So we to get a you know. I don't know get that back from appreciate it. Thank you it's like taking the truck away from the trucker you. You know kind of need that so anyway. That's that's things break like the website the website uh-huh fix now but also reminded me that There was the there needs to be a badge. For the end of this episode's I'd quick but later so trusted reporter we got that was this world. L. Six eight. FC See a modulus field. Have you guys heard much about homogeneous fields. Yes yeah. I'm looking at what it would take to do that. And I'm like Dang that's it's tough but basically it's a field contains X.. Number of layers. No no matter where it's at in the top layer so all areas of that field would be five layers or four layers So they had a couple of six layer homogeneous modulus fields And they have a A website that you can submit your six layer watches field. So that's what L. Sakes. HFC is I don't know if anybody has done. A seven layer. Yes yes no I have no clue I have no clue either. I've only seen six so we need. We need one of the aged academy agents to go out and do the world's first seven layer homogeneous field or if there's a seven to eight eight nine but it looks like there's in quite a bit of engineering to make that work because the edges out to the edges have to be all the way through so there's that wayfair Have you done anything in wayfair since I've done a little bit. It's really nice that you can go back and see which ones you you know. You're hold on. I think I've seen at least our area Some of the submissions have gone through quicker. I had a submission that today's time time it was backing. It was it was approved. Of course it was a billion and a park where they do a lot of drinking so that might have something to do with it and I don't know But they also looks like a the twenty fifth of October. No nyack slipped a little bit and opened up wayfarer to some select oakmont players level. Forty players So that's kind of out there. Hit in an unannounced Beta. It's not in all areas so we've had a lot of discussion about you. Know what. What are we going to see when pokemon comes online and all these guys start to Submit and approve and I was just going to be a glut of portals or what I Dunno Oh will it be a a mecca of just awesome awesome Being able to play ingress everywhere to be a great thing it could it could. I'll make an definitely make it easier to plan theo. You'll have to you don't have to work too hard to find those portals. That are in line north south or east west or whatever but I don't think it loses. Its specialness if you know every block has six portals on it it's like no. We'll don't move to box. If there was a EXA- genus influence in the scanner. Quote Book quotes. I mean Polka Mongo. Has the the team. Rocket is captured. This POLKA stop. Now you've got to do something to undo it. It's like a little challenge in there. That can be fun for ingress if you just Kinda put the elbow in there saying so. So you're saying we should make POK Mon.. The red faction now nemesis is the red faction as to influence the scanner. A little more. They need to do some stuff. Okay Yeah I haven't seen any nemesis portal's lit up or anything like that so that would be kinda interesting. See if there's a portal that's hooked that's led up and it's green it's not blue wall red faction and I was looking at Wayfair the other day I noticed I had a portal that only one portal from like years and years ago that that hasn't gone through yet and I've actually submitted a few times since then again because it's a church and I assume it must be on a list of like do not see bit because like I cannot find anything wrong with submissions at this point There's one also just stuck in there and I heard that and it's it's I don't know if and if it stuck because it's on the list or the other ones didn't get approved because it was anyway so that was the only one that hasn't gone through yet I I the other thing I noticed was if you look at all the portals submissions before I was actually an OPR. They're much more horrible portal's suggestions. Before I got to know really what should be a good suggested port. All right yeah. So that's that's what I also think. They need to get people people away fair faster or before they're like submitting portals. Because it's like you know I wouldn't have submitted dominoes. You know it just at the time. Ah or the local bar all these Bars that like all these bars are are portal's why isn't this one portal because that's like Tgi Agi. Fridays thanks have you. Have you tried editing in wayfair during the edit and withdraw that portal and then put it back in. No maybe. Maybe that'll do it. Then that's going to miss things out the Geez. I while you were talking. I thought I'll go back and see if you can do that. And you can. You can't hit the edit on that. I've got one that's a disc golf course when he hit the edit. Then there's a button says withdraw well Okay so let's go back and burn duck stuff yeah. This is my restarting computer. Yeah Yeah Yeah. I'll try that report back and see what happens now. You got a job. I think so something to add onto the the wayfair shenanigans. I believe this is only for Pokemon. Go at the moment went and only being rolled out as like an initial test but there are the sponsor way spots at Poca. My goal have where you know. Generic small local businesses will be able to pretty much go in and say I want to have a way spot at my establishment. And I think there's some sort of plan for duration of time that that can be set up based on how much they're willing to pay But I think I would really love to see that in ingress for just adding in more bar portals or just restaurants like you sit down you want to hack something and there's nothing because that stuff doesn't go through you know. OPR wayfair as it would be. Yeah I think You you know snapchat used to have something like this where you could actually geo fence off a location and have filters pop up just for You know like your air company or your event and you paid basically by the square footage of your Gio fence and the amount of time that that badge would be there like we did for one podcast at this convention we were going to be at And it was like twelve bucks for like a day with the small area and if we were in that area the filter would pop up with our logo on it so it was Kinda cool But they could do that with like portals. Like submit a photo and where you want this to appear it what time and for how long and you could do it for parties you could for like convention you could for just hanging out with friends All these different things and people would pay for that. I don't think it would be overpowering because people aren't going to link to it because it's going away or maybe you can link to it. Yeah just making Linka port make hackborn but I think it'd be cool then to lake. Let's amp that up. How about you a party portal? That has you know ten slots on it ten months lots on who you know right like so resonator ten slot and it's basically like having a fracture in you know somewhere else Anyway I think they could do some fun and stuff with them. I agree and I finally got the badge fixed. So yeah so we can go on now so glib hacking issue author an issue. Yeah I don't I don't know I mean he mentioned something about exogenous and getting in and I just noticed. Yesterday when I was going around and again I was Kinda Loselle area. It wasn't too bad But I saw a couple other people that mentioned this that you go through through the sequence that you're getting ready to repeat and you know I I just like touched it for the very first one is like eighty went through all three or four of them and it was done. That was kind of weird. But it's cold outside. Maybe my finger was warm enough to run this thing or whatever you know and I did another one and I just sat back and watched it just went right through it so I don't know maybe I spit on my phone. I don't know what the Elizabeth maybe that's executives. That are starting to screw things. That's that's the easy way yet. That bug just play by play this phone going off so I do okay. Who got the red phone going off right? Screw with the podcast again again. But yeah. There's another issue I've kind of had was How Man I forget where exactly it was either keys or somewhere in inventory where the the manage buttons go away and it's just out? What are you will if you press on the bottom right corner where the button should be? It's actually still there. You just can't see it so you can get to the habits to you. That's just go press with it but I usually just reset it. Go on but y'all I'll give that a try trial. Had that happened recently but I have had the capsule managed buttons in some older versions occasionally disappear and then it was just well. I'm resetting ingress in your arteries said. I think we had A. We had a contest for Saturday to see who had the least number of resets. I think I think our winter was to. ooh that sounds about right. I think for the best that I did. I had two crashes during the course of play but I mean that was a lot of extreme bud pushing and this earned sometimes doesn't like that when you do it for a prolonged period of time. I'm like but hey to to resets in a three hour window is a lot better than it had been months prior. And you're probably they do a more like six hours of play in those two hours because it's just go go go go go. So that's good. And then they're they're working on stuff so fast that it's time for a new game Settlers of Catan. This is GonNa be Don World Explorers. Yes and it's I haven't seen anything from NIANTIC talking about it but if you go to the page the sign up and look at like the privacy policy and policy and stuff. They are linked to Niantic labs site. So I guess I don't know if there's somewhere else that that's been posted by them that they're doing this but it appears that is them unless the company doing it ripped off the privacy policy from nineteen. Just use their time to write a new one. We like there's there there Everybody playing their game seem to be happy about their privacy policies. So this use it and they've been to court for US air game installed and only still play one of them. I play off three but really pokemon go is just with my Gotcha thing. That pretty much plays the game for me and then I'll send presents too friends every once in a while. Yeah I can't lie. I play Pokemon go for for really win them out rocking A. I love opening. Eggs is just such a nice thing to get that credit for walking distance album. I run into is I have none of the bag upgrades so I'm instantly full. Fringer yelling at me that it had opened their gifts. And I'm just like wow. I can't wait for this to come to ingress so I can do the exact same thing. It's delete delete a lot of stuff but I got to say I'm a purist I I don't even have the other Games on my phone. Just just ingress. That's it aren't gonNA thing popping up here now I will. I will note when I went in and looked at the stuff for guitar. Evidently started it as a board game In Germany and when I looked at the board game first thing that came to my mind was the tests. Elation does on on board game looks a lot like the desolation. Of course Tesla bigger. But there's some and sheep. That's all you need. No No. There's more to Qatar now jeep road and shave if we see anticipation relation tile at shows up. It's like a board or she will know what's going on very worried. Someone's about to right. They're mixing their games speaking about to win. Every one of you who wants to win can do it easily by going to the Agent Academy podcast website and entering in this achievement. Code for this episode. which is a Nanno A and there's your own on little achievement? Pack from us to you for free. 'cause we're kind like that yes. Is it a really really tiny achievement. Like can you make the smaller. MAKINA are small deep real small type. I should make it like a really small one. I I could do that. But that takes time. Just smart now and it should work Jj Ablaze approved that it works in the chat room that one was created during the show. That was thanks for telling us it was broken in the first place. And that's it for this episode. Next week I don't know if we'll be doing a show because is it it'll be double. AP Time and I don't want to be talking to fools when I can be out there getting double a. p.. Yeah yeah feel go into the field. This time. It looks like next week. I need to get a hat because you guys have matching hats. Yeah I have to get a hat. I gotta fix my setup so like I changed my desks and everything around coming back after I searching for my company convention so I had to take all my equipment down there and then it was like come back in like I had to get it set up to edit some stuff real quick when I got back so I like my cameras over here which is very odd to be looking at y'all in the show notes over here your profile so but getting the anyway so I will change things. I think because this is awkward between episodes. I need to get a better microphone. Because I'm going to continue doing this. We get off the production quality quality here. People phones microphones lights cameras and action hearing anyway. Anyway thanks again for a great show Next time we'll we'll just follow our twitter and go to the telegram channel. That's probably the best place. Yeah we just throw it out on telegram usually lie once or twice and then we get it right so you don't take the first one you see. This is anyway. y'All have a great week and go get that W. w. p. all of the Dr Gregory Sixteen I MM-HMM.

Agent Academy Episode Eighty Two recorded on April thirtieth. Two Thousand Twenty. I'm agent Gooney Guy Agent J and tonight we're GonNa talk about the ingress virtual first Saturday which were co sponsoring with this other. Podcasts prime tips. Has Anybody heard of this? It's a hack. He's a hack. That of course is the podcast that do we. J. Puts out so if you're not subscribed you should go subscribe to it and listen to it but I would say I just getting. That was the old name like Youtube. I they would all yell that in that when the videos posted not all just the first person where it wouldn't really make sense. So how was your week? Do J. Pretty good of course work work work. I did do a little work for coming first. Saturday created a virtual mission which I've had one person go through and he's wasn't too bad. It wasn't horrible. I well I'll let you talk to that. We get to that point. I did get to some old school. Ingress saying I got to do this weekend. Yeah actually on Tuesday. One of the agents. That disappeared might. That's the flow of Nemesis. Cy News Anyway he came. I think I don't know. He must have been driving somewhere something but he came out of the woodwork and dirt up the cell and through a bunch of links through a little bit of feeling. And I'm like well now. I've got something I can do so I blew off work on the part of the morning on Tuesday and stuff up through five layers then went to work so so. It's good to be out there doing that stuff and I did it responsibly. I got out of the car one time. Nobody around and so I was able to Congress the whole thing so that was good and just getting ready for this podcast and her Saturday. Let some of this a lot of work. She's been he's been killing gremlins left and right. I haven't heard of any cuss words but they were close. I say under my breath. Okay smurfs. Well I just got and vein. Were you locked up in the House all week? Again Kirk much. Yeah I mean I am trying to limit the amount of church said I'm taking so unless it is going to the grocery store which only doing trying once a month at this point. It's like wait and just going outside to to rock so try not to use the car the one or two times. I have gone out trying to hit a trails. Its use it on the days where it's raining. Where typically the only person out crazy enough to be going a couple of miles in the rain there is still a decent amount of folks out so I think a lot of people are using the trails as just extra middle housebreak during all this. I can't really blame them. But I'm seeing very the lack of masks out there so that is kinda annoying. Yeah I haven't heard the term but I think it's I think people are starting to feel that cabin fever. You know the ice is broken. We get out. We just need to move down here in Alabama. They don't give a flip and you know they're like People can go to work now except for these few businesses. That are the few that can't work from home and I'm like everyone else that you're saying of go back in the pretty much have learned how to work from home or they're out of a job so. I don't know how much that makes sense down here that it's crazy. So you all the also been cooped up at home but you can work from home for the most part. Yeah I'm I'm very lucky in that aspect but my wife works at a Salon. And she's actually one of the the professions that they won't allow back right now and we're both like that's okay because I don't know this is crazy. Well what else have you been doing just work? I mean there's just a haven't I'm trying to think like the last time. I actually left the house in the car like I need to go in at least drive the car around the block so it doesn't so the tires don't get the dies are all that all of the battery dicara future right right. Well that's like it seems like maybe a man time to look at like a new carpet like with my son graduating graduated. We're GONNA pass down our old old car to him and so we were looking at a new car for my wife and the local places like Oh no you gotta come in to like test drive and sign staff and I'm like well. I'm not doing that like I. DuNno like test drove cars before for a weekend. You know and so I'm like I don't know why you can't drive it here. Let us draw around. I'll give you deposit or something and then leave the paperwork in the car. I'll fill it out and drop it off you know and it's just like no and I'm like I guess we're GonNa wait to get a car or look at other places in actually Nashville. The same dealership the Honda dealership. There will actually do it all online. So we're kind of looking at the anyway crazy world stuff where there's just some people who wanNA touch. Yeah I don't know if that has to do with ingress but I there's real people are in a video camera than I can. Jj Blazes Getting Air Loading Ingress Account. Data looks like he got banned. I feel for you brother. I feel for you my scanner. Then we're working on right. I don't know if mine's already open. So they posted something about working on server stuff with skid the probably getting ready for the virtual first Saturday and and so. That's what I've been doing a little bit of this week. It's preparing for that. Not as much as Dewey Jay. Who's making cool like events for the just getting the sign up sheets that in some of the info pages and I still need to make badges make badges for the event need badges for virtual. I'll let you talk about that. But and then I had to make a badge for JJ glaze and need to make a message for this episode. So there's no code this episode. We're going to come up with a stinking budget but it won't be available until this weekend and the episode will be available to last episode because it's rendered out today tonight before the show he's on it on it. I was able to log in to the scanner so it must be Canadian thing. I don't know yeah working working for me at the moment but I I had some issues with the scanner and I think some of it was just. I don't know I noticed that I had a bunch of keys that would throw and when I got one location. It was like wait. Wait wait wait wait wait time out and like what? Why am I not hitting? This is getting blocked by not not fully deploy around round round finding Mike so I took all the keys out of my inventory other than the two or three that I wanNA throw. It was like their yard. So this little tip if you're using this scanner and you have a whole bunch of keys that you possibly could throw. But they're like undercover or link block. It's GonNa take to figure it out and it may just time so that tip for and I also noticed that at least my android that whenever if I if I hack and you get the result box up which. We don't know what the name of we talked about. What the name of. That thing is a little result box. It says. Here's what you got from the act and I hit the back Arrow on my phone to like get out of the APP. It kinda like locks up. I can't get out of the can touch on a portal in a kind of highlight the portal. But it won't show me what's there so I just kind of have to hard reset that apt to kill it so just a little bug accuracy. That could be a real problem if you were under the gun in a and some competition or you know an anomaly or something that would be a real pain to have to restart the apple. Yeah so and I think we should probably you get into the event stuff this week. We got hackbarth fist forge. Wanted to know if this was part. Yes so we're sharing the channel with the shaft so you'll see some ingress every once in a while sorry brought horizons dudes. Yeah you should you picking up and joined the enlightened so this weekend is the virtual first Saturday on on. May the second and we'RE GOING TO BE HOSTING ONE AGENT. Kademi and prime tips podcast. We've got our ex FAC in our expert. Going on and you don't have to show up physically of course because that would be awkward for everyone and you'll just show up to a link which will be like a A chat thing. Should we do telegram Channel Two or so? There are some people who don't want to like audio or video or do they have to. Do you want to go over the rules your region earlier earlier they are. They are different. They talk about three activities that you can join online social activities and they leave that pretty well open to whatever you WanNa do like twitter twitter or could be Marco Polo or it could be. I don't know Anything that you want Marco blow off mark upon. That's actually a pretty NEAT LITTLE APP. But Yeah we could use. Sangoma or or something else. Later on when we started talking about blasting which is a picture the picture is going to have to be done via a live stream video chat trine shot so. I think you could kill two birds. One O two birds with one stone if you put up like a Sangoma or something where people get talking then at the end of the whole thing get everybody together and take that picture although that might be tough for some areas. I'm looking at the registry for the offense and Huntsville which is where ours is being out of Europe. Eighteen people ninth and we only need to in people for the picture for right knee tin. I think the other one that I was working with which is Champagne Illinois. They're up to twenty-eight nothing like that here nothing like Bandung Indonesia the only have five hundred twenty people signs up for Saturday. That's it that's it. You know that you're gonNA have a hard time getting that picture when whatever video. App. They're using graphic. Everybody's GonNa be like two pixels doll. I think probably take like five or six screens at least come in the door. You real quick run. So virtual photo guidelines. They've got those out there on Feb Games. Website meet participation requirements and. We'll talk about those in a minute. And so they're the one thing that you are kind of doing that is related through. The scanner is recharging so there's a portal recharging challenge so there's scoresheet by the total fifty k. So for anyone. City recharged should be at least fifty k. Xm overall everyone contributes towards that goal. So if you've got ten people they each do five k. of recharge you meet the minimums And cities will be ranked by the total amount of Xm they recharge and the average Xm recharge per agent to win bragging rights so the five hundred twenty people in India. I'm guessing you're going to do very well on that portion but your smaller than us might have a chance at that because each individual agent is going to be charging a lot. So if you haven't done already the best thing to do for that portion is to neglect your portals. That's what I'm wondering is like you know I. I could definitely see there being normal. I Saturday's where I would show up and be like. Oh I need real keys that I can recharge with that might suck right now and after recharge at once like I can't reach it again so I was thinking it'd be the strategy. How would you go about getting ready for this? And the only thing that I think would be is if you've got keys. Well you wouldn't really need keys if you have a way to Congress or something and there's an area that is deployed but not you know not charged readily there and grab grab keys to that area. So that when it comes time to do recharging you can recharge that so you might have to go out and grab keys for those places that need to be charged. Hopefully somebody else don't doesn't charge that before you get to it. Who knows because you can't really go out and light up a bunch of stuff? That would be counterproductive. Really for what? You're doing now if you can get some locals to come by and just dinkum right there. Yeah if if you have cross section you know if you have a good cross faction I don't know whether that's not really winch rating but yeah if he's like. Hey I'm going to deploy all these portals you come through knock them down halfway and you tell me where you want me to go. Knock those down halfway and then we could. We can charge them on the day of. I don't know that stretch rule. I don't think I want to personally collaborating that way. Because that is a little bit. As a Swede Gray area now so it's like I see that but I feel like no one's getting ap doing it right because you're not playing. You're getting the charging but well yeah. I don't know it's a gray area but that was the only thing I can think if you wanted to stay within the rules. That's you go out and find those portals that that need charging that you don't have keys and get keystone them but again I'll up to your local rules and regulations can you be. How can you be driving? What lockdown you know. All those things apply so yet it's such a such a small amount That like pretty much if you had to. Pee Sevens that were halfway decayed in. You're in charge. Both of those the full you you'd be over the Fifty K. requirement. Not GonNa make it through its report and the city is good so I think they purposely set the bar pretty low there that way people wouldn't necessarily have to go out of the way ahead of this new any sort of setup now of course. Worl- gamers. So we're GONNA try to look at it from the point of view but I need to be like number one. Silliest the always is the the high the big numbers so everybody is is Kinda looking at it for strategy element. But I think you know they sent that Barlow. That way would have to go out. Debate envious for Saturday at home. Say Home While we've got one agent that she is the recharge clean so style she goes through. She goes through cubes like nothing because she just recharge is so many thanks so I'm sure that she's GonNa let go for one day and she could probably enough in the whole United States and and one day for them out that sheree charges. But that's that looks like that's the one thing that is definitely going to be using the scanner to do now. There's GonNa be other things you do that you don't You'll want to make sure that when you're doing that that you check your agent name scores list on your local events page under the scoresheet data so You WanNa make sure you register of course SMITH STATS TO THE AUTO. Score sheet as instructed by event organizers. So you can get in there and get going but you really need to make sure that you're listed on that score sheet on the event page just because you're RSVP does not mean is GonNa Count so you won't get in to the badge if he just RSVP and you charge if you're not showing up there need to grab somebody say. Hey why I show up on that screen. Yeah that's what I'm thinking. We probably need like a telegram set up because I have. This is pretty standard for first Saturday sites. All the for Saturday's that I see letter doing virtual that typically are in person all have telegrams at the moment so says a safe bet said it's make one you're able to put linkup on the registration page so people can get that which is nice that I mean. It's pretty universal for a lot of players. I don't know maybe that's just a circle that we run in so we figure everybody's got telegram but yeah well we can use both. I'm just saying like we like the base channel that the only requirement is telegram. Though I did have an agent. It was a couple of months ago. Sent me a message in the scanner. That was like Hey. I need to get this for you. Know this badge. Can you help and never really seen this person play in before? Don't really know so I just said you know. Hit me up on telegram. Same same name and they responded like the next day with what's telegram and like and I'm like I don't know this feels very mar dookie. Like I'm feeling like this may not be legit player. Jerry and prints that what you're saying but I will say maybe maybe we'll get in touch again and the conversation get them to a farm and a digital scanner check and get them into the the right telegrams saying that the other things are very close to what you had in i Saturday's that there's least ten and ten dis least three from each faction. So you know it does have to be cross faction and there is a pass code. Decoding challenge which we don't have a whole lot of information on that the tells shared on the day. One thing they say you can guarantee as a require a lot of people with local portal knowledge to work together to unlock their cities. Pasco so what we're hearing is. You should be able to do it. Don't worry about it too much but you'll need to do it if you want to get. That decoding challenge. So that's where that social platform telegram against GonNA come in Handy. People work on that so I wonder if they'll use something that's that pool some kind of data because it's gotta be. They can't do this manually. There's just too many I I feel like and maybe veins part of getting that chance together. Maybe they aren't tapping into a certain group of people in that the tape coming out now. I don't know I I would say that it would actually be the ISS hosts that would be providing matt information trailer potential codes or it's based off of the list of portals that you submitted so. I didn't submit foresight but reading their requirements. I do know that they were still requiring Though you you don't need to hack one so I assume that's gonNA play it someway. Yeah ours is Han Solo. Because it's right before may the fourth doesn't that make sense. May the fourth be with YOU STAR. Wars g days too early own. Well but yeah I. I don't know it seems like maybe they'll just take like get the top ten this from the city. That's the home city of the site and grab those you know. Just get some of that. They can kind of automate automate getting the the Info for and then it doesn't really say is whether the code is has been decoded that they do say solving the city's Pasco and submitting it on the master challenge for which will be released that day will be mandatory to get that badge so watch your cities. Passcodes been solved groups of cities. Well need to work together to unlock the global master codes. So that's the first. I've heard of global master coats so I don't know that's pretty cool. Yeah maybe that's maybe that's your quote unquote recharge room recharger them. I'm sorry you recharge portal. I restocked portal to give back all the cues us if that one lawson that one loss to us so yeah it looks like they're they've got a lot of stuff laid out but like anything else. It's going to be the first time and it's the first time that they're they're doing it. And they're rolling out. I I duNNo. Vein might be able to speak to this. If they tried this platform before resists the first time on the master decoding and all of that. I'd say that's pretty similar to the umbrella in our series in the decode challenge. It was present there where you had kind of like tears of decoding. So I could see it being based loosely on but I think most of it has been developed by the team working with chef games there so I am certain. They've got some sort of plan. I know previous I Saturday's we've had sister. Cities do decoding. Who's had shoutouts all kinds of things so I I'm sure things worked it out to make it a challenge. Non something that would be possible because they don't want to deal with on the destructive players and I think that'd be a thing we need to say to everybody. Is You know this is kind of a Beta L. Things are possibly going wrong and they're going to do their best to fix. I wouldn't expected to go off without a hitch. Hopefully the hitches a small hitch. Yes it'll it'll be all. It should be good to enjoy the time. I would like Athene a little more advanced puzzle solving than the normal ones they give out for. I S S something along the lines of you know the normal stuff for getting the passcodes like the archetype stuff at least one puzzle like that because I think every city will probably have someone who's kind of into that and then you can kind of help lead that community into solving it and then I'll get other people interested in that same code breaking hopefully and then it would just kind of an increase community. Well it's an interesting say something beyond the normal a our first. Saturday is going to have something. That's a little beyond the normal. It might be one of the other ones we do have a virtual mission so it's a little bit different so if you're able to join us in Huntsville F S and maybe one other one champagne we've got virtual mission setup that's awesome yeah and Gooney took his triad. I will say he didn't get it right the very first time he did very well just didn't get them all the first time. I did my best us telling me he threw one in. That was wrong just to see if it would make a wrong but but you got eight wrong. And I'm like Oh damn just one wrong or was it more. Just what you just got one. There are so many possibles that I may have to refine that one a little bit to make it more clear but I mean there's a format work for you. Yeah yeah no I thought it was. It was good. It was good. There were some difficult ones. There were some not so difficult ones. I'm sure you had been to yes. They're wild so I had to do. No googling with that one you knew that what and I think that we're going to try to give out. Maybe some swag so I'll talk with Gooney. We'll see maybe we'll I've got some pens and some other Asian Academy Swag stuff that we may just. I'll change a little bit but a a mail address in there and if you hit a certain level we'll send you a badge but it in an envelope Senate off can let it come to your house and let it sit for seventy two hours before you touch it. So there's no covert and now we have some codes to to give out and some virtual badges for the site. So hopefully that'll work out really. Well we'll see how how it works and if you like that kind of thing let us know. Maybe we could. We could do more. Yeah I mean. We don't always have to have a first Saturday to do it right now. We can do it for third Thursday. Okay well first Saturday. The virtual go sign. You can sign up for ours you can find it on the list. It's Huntsville Alabama. You can go to telegram the websites I it might be hard to find your on the website but it's there we should probably do a front page post on it. You could actually just go to games and find the best at home and they will. They'll list all of them. Yeah Yeah and then ingress. Is there they used to show the S on the events? I don't know this one has too many hours zoom. Not but it should show it. It won't be the closest one to you unless you're close to here. We are doing it a little bit later. It Seven PM Central. So I think most of the ones at least us time-wise will be done. Most seemed to start in the general normal kind of tend to noon ish timeframe. So you're welcome to come join in to the chat and staff if you've already registered for one. I don't think you can register for second one unless you're the starter of it like when added you put you on there but actually into but we did have somebody from Mississippi that was sending. Some people are way because they were getting too many people that they they're figuring have A. I don't think we can handle this many people with what we've got at hand so I think you've probably got ten or fifteen one ten or fifteen maybe five or six people from someplace in Mississippi that have showed up in Huntsville. So I'll call. That's the Nice thing if it's if you're in someplace that's going to have big numbers and you don't want to be a big numbers for Saturday. No Ek someplace else but just make sure they speak the language. Yeah thanks Pixel Bites. Put the link in the chat so you can go to the twitch chat and find it there as well If you're not already there there's probably easier way to go into the website the other website. Whichever way you want to do it. You do it that way. We have some news. We got some glitches in the scanner. What's you talked about some of this right now now? We kind of talked about a little bit that X. problems with the feeling and stuff like that but There are some reports that English devices having some issues in vain. You kind of talked about that a little bit. Yeah you you were talking about before the show is mostly mostly just how text is displayed. I believe I think that was mentioned in the the Change Law for the latest version. That there were some known issues surrounding that so hopefully soon. That would be good. I think if it's on the known lists stuff that they are actively addressing they just didn't hold back the release specifically for those bugs but fingers crossed. That's gotTa be pretty annoying and hopefully be nice thing for Saturday now batting batting back many modal okay. What's next Johnson Hank Johnson? There's a pack everybody's always excited about these packs. I know vein super excited aren't you? Oh yeah old old character medal. I think it's unique launched. I got to history radio so I'd early the twenty thirteen hang on people. That word panicked about that. I I've seen more people that are excited to be able to purchase it though than the panicked crowd so I have a ceiling. Reception is going to be mostly elegant side. There were also a couple of comments. I saw regarding by cubes because that pack contains array cubes honest the VR argument reared its head again. That's a little little concerning among a lot of folks and I'm sort of on that team you like I. I don't necessarily think that we need is your gear in those packs. Could've just been a number account of PCA and our fine late the twenty-five hydrate cubes. That is quite a lot. We don't necessarily have any events coming out to where that's probably going to be a huge issue of those return while but for fifty K. Xm requirement for a city. First Saturday I think out to be the Debbie Downer and saying that you know twenty five hundred years low overkill. Yeah I twenty five. I don't think I could charge everything. I have a key to from them. Be Empty and use all that and I'm a key order. Yeah Yeah I think I agree with monkey pelts though that out of VR gear. I think it's probably the least game affecting piece exactly what monkeypox setback you gotta give VR gear. That's the one to give. And maybe not make the are not as the are other stuff. I don't know maybe with the new items with the super very rare and then they go to that level. Right Oh supervisor is stuff we want the VR stuff. Now there's also resonates in there and four apex is so there's there's a little bit more in there. Yeah I like the resonator is I don't know I find it hard to like. They're great nick owed. We didn't get a code like it's part of like a purchase like I don't even think it's worth it to like. Get them and I'm starting for eight around here but I'm just like I in twenty five. Those would be gone in seconds if I was at Newport now. I know most of the time like I. S There's resonator. Bundles are super super sought. After a lot of people started just helps going to start with a ton of resonator that we're getting all our capturing at least for the people that are going for big numbers. Audie so I hear from a lot of that. They are saying for those packs. I mean understandably so we're not going to be deploying so this is definitely appreciated Well how many those pacts. What had fifty. How many of you ones right are ones varied? Occasionally months and months. I think around hundred twenty nine. Okay Yeah I think actually had to buy one of those. They're the Illinois owing our no. Yeah maybe we ran year round the night before and you ran out of stuff so but twenty five and I guess that's the thing I guess that's kind of like what you're saying is well known for the twenty-five resonated with the apex hybrid cubes. But you know at least Johnson. Hopefully at least you're not throwing stuff like rare rare linking. I'm sitting there or something like that. It's it's those those barrier. Lincoln's are very rare. You know you'll see him out there that much. Only I use by accident. Ooh We had an agent around here that that was quote unquote retiring and he was dumping those on portals and wasn't doing anything with you know maybe like once or the very rare link for like. Oh my God why are you doing that? He just had to get rid of them. I guess the next first Saturday I got him. Just going to try to put one on every portal amount golden doing. What's He gonNA link to? He's got something up his sleeve. Oh well thank Johnson. Is Mac again one hank now? Not Johnson's don't double Johnson. Johnson's Yeah I mean. They couldn't really do an old hank too bad drink because difficult too soon choosing I was gonNA say it would. It would be kind of a gruesome one right but so this is the time in the podcast where we require something and so. Let's open it up. We open it up to chat. I'd open it up to chat. Yes this is the chat. The twitch chat picks the code for this episode so birds out there and then vein to pick out of state wonderful suitable for classroom use. Let's put it that way though. Jay Jay blaze wants long. Johnson's Johnson's J. J. was saying not me. A and archie bell came up with Johnson's. What do you think fame? You just going to have to go with the devil since I think so. You see it in chat and if you don't you here thank you. Mulkey Pelton thanks. Jj blaze for thrown out there too but it will be a double. Johnson's a maybe. Hank will shout out on both of them. Maybe together in harmony. Can you imagine two of them to? Hey Johnson's I can imagine Arlo. Guthrie fans anyone out there now okay. Jj I assume all going to be in caps still fifty resonator day can you imagine just fifty resonator today walking in single bar restaurant and then while I'm so all I got that reference? Okay so I think we're done for the evening shit show up in virtually to the F. S. and I won't ideas like everybody's in his ideas on what are you doing to feed your ingress habits while you can't go out or you just going out. Let us know what you're doing? And then we'll disseminate that information on the show next time playoffs. It's nothing more exciting than for resets. Please sounds as though you're getting tired of that. No no but it's you know it's a different kind of habit. Not gameplay related per se. I'm gaining from that. It's more of a courtesy of the player. You know the communities. Yeah and that's the hard thing. I think like my my Gamer brain wants to keep taking up that. Ap counter and so if the activity doesn't do that sometimes it's harder for me to like get into that activity that makes sense. Yeah it's it's definitely difficult Before this I are still playing on the daily and now it's been quite a little bit at times have delayed dillard playstation but I I like to get out there and rock or walk. Typically what I'm saying ingress and brain now like the last few times that I tried that just head down and the scanner. It's too easy for people to just Credo Ga just got a little fast with to try to stay socially distant from people. I'm distracted trying to playing us so it just seems like you know what I can put a pause on this for a little bit so staying involved with the community through like Zoom Zoom Slot assumes I wanNA telegram chats religious trying to catch up for back. Longo other work like. There's lots to do. Hopefully everybody's staying connected to their communities during this so I think now more than ever. Winky de be relying us. I did notice that when I went out in Congress. There was like what now? Wait a minute. What's the best way to take this portal out? Where do I need to be in the muscle memory? Wasn't there so it's interesting. You lose that fine skill just by not using it for what a month and so it was good to do it again. But I wouldn't expect when you go back that you have the same finesse. She had four. You left now start with Mike. Just really right at the end of this. If we get some shirts I'd still have that Gusto by Russ doesn't take long. He said chartres the only time he can be fairly sure they're not going to drop shot five shards say hoops about it. The only way you can do anything with the shards is not being close enough to it to do anything with it. It only do anything with it. Virtually shirt the furthest person away from the controls it girl chance then. I have a feeling he's away. He's far away from everybody. He said we have a chain saying. I have a chance. Okay well the chance for this show ending right now is very high. So thanks again. Everyone and we'll see you next time by Sia there.

He's found titles to choose from your iphone and Android kindle or MP three player now welcome to the Jet Academy downloading latest Intel package. Welcome back I was getting worried about his breath agent academy themselves number seventy four recorded on February six two thousand and twenty. I'm agent Gooney Guy. I'm Asian do Jay and we've got a lot of talk talk about well. Maybe we got a few things to talk about. So we're GONNA talk about him and it's all ingress stuff so that's good speaking of Ingress This week I've been just doing my daily I don't WanNa say grind because I have fun doing it so it's not really a grind but my morning ingress so I just had this route that I drive to work and I farm keys from one portal. And that's my star burst pertile which I just since stuff into and I can't out of because it's Max links right now out on my way in my way back but I'm trying to think of how to maximize ap on this morning drive because it's like you know it ends up being an extra forty five minutes to an hour with traffic. And it's just you know build portals adding shields or turns whatever crap I have laying around my inventory and then trying to make some some fields but do you think I should be letting it decay completely and rebuilding fully trying to figure out connects fields kind of thing or there. We go generator agent Red Solo. Oh come in the House with a unique. No my kids are in here either. I roll a saying please I. I don't to see I got some dental toothpicks. Do you mean do that was just the old you know. Okay Laura Law saying oh no Google Google it now. You did do something this weekend and you. Oh Yeah Yeah. The Big Green. Forget about that on the south of me. Yeah we did quick but what was that. That was a field okay. Really it was. It was a green forty something layers. I think it was a little over one hundred million total but I didn't throw any. I was just helping out. And you know clear blockers and hanging out with some agents who were throwing nearby so sometimes. That's more fun the clearing in this stuff. 'cause you're you're in the middle of the woods at midnight waiting for the call and then you know you're all excited and then you may recall. This is located work. Yeah and this is I mean. It was a fun when it was what was the name of it. was accidental magician. Okay so triangle. It's just like it was there. Yea so on ever really been out fielding awhile so getting out and just like big fields so so. I was happy happy to do that and it was. You know as a three hour three hour ish drive from here there and then back so it was. It was a full all day and I think like we kept talking about like wouldn't we wonder the show and I'm like I don't WanNa go can't do it Sunday. 'cause I know dewey. Ajay will send out the radars. I tried to make this circle of trust between us where we could go. Hey for doing a field. This weekend happen can't trust him. The locker a blue just right through down to Florida. Have you not seen the object posters specifically says loose the links yeah loose links loose lips sink links triangles or something like that. Yeah like don't do it but I feel like we're compadres that we should have like you know what's heard on the show as maybe ten minutes before doing good portal so it makes it hard when you're when you're trying to plan and it's like do j. says he's doing. This is as we can get the community theaters. Is there really a play going on this night. So that that he looked it looked good. I will say that it looked pretty. Impressive yeah they did a great job like you know. It's it's it's I the last big field what I did. I was lucky enough to get to throw like four or five closing feels that were like twelve million a piece so like I'm I'm almost eighty nine million dollars like let's like I don't need to throw right now. Would you mind everyone's while they you know it's needed but now did someone get an Onyx. This is the first occupant on with prime. Or you've been on one before I've been on one before but that's because I I started using prime like early explicitly. Yeah so I I never had any issues with the fielding the big layers like that so much but I can't remember if I've thrown big layers with I kind of heard heard some stuff that they're saying when it gets it gets tightened you're throwing links and stuff like that. It used to be having some issues and I don't I don't know if it is anymore. Not Finding it seemed to be rock solid from me. Yeah the only issues I've had lately is kind of weird one. My inventory doesn't represent the total correctly so I log in. It's like all read because it doesn't factor in the keys in our does factor in the keys. He's in the key capsules so it's way over the limit. I can still do everything right hacking. Whatever I don't really you know it's not a bother until you do get to that cap and you don't realize it because you've been playing where it looks like it's over the CAP? I've not seen it. Are you playing on a free phone. I know I. I'm just not tin which has been rock solid. I can actually Harry Potter and Ingress and when I was doing a little bit of GonNa have them all three open you're going back and forth and it wouldn't shut down where the Pixel would like. I couldn't keep Zella open within grass on the Pixel it would just everything restarted. It's all ram if you're having on those issues check your phone on but you don't have much ram foam. I mean yeah no my I have an essential phone so late you know it was never really the top of the line anyway. I can run prime though and it works. I don't have any slowdown or anything. Like that can still it so for the moment. I haven't heard a lot of people complaining about that because that was what kind of one of our concerns when they were talking about. You know updating. The system is like how many people on the low end of the phone with older phones on a knockout. I haven't heard much of that so I I do actually know just recently The latest version there there were some reports of individuals getting knocked out for devices no longer. You're compatible so it is something that you know. I think is constantly changing but I believe the team has said publicly in various places that they're always going to be looking at ways that they can you know include as many devices as possible that way. It's not just something where to experiencing rest. You need to have a thousand dollar phone. Should be should be the case. But it's you know it's it's like iphone an five's or four. I mean like you can't even update IOS on them and stuff so it's like even the phones themselves go out of date so pretty indicated that maybe it's time to do some to grab a new one and it's it's not like if you have that real high in phoning anyhow the fallen. That's that works. Well that you're going to get much of an advantage you know. It's not like another gaming when you have that gaming machine somebody else has the lag master five thousand that you know. There's going to be a different. Yeah it's like I wonder if they can move to like stadia is a thing that Google has now for gaming in the cloud so you can game on a TV you know or a crappy laptop as long as you can watch youtube. Basically you can play a the modern day left. The you know games without much problem so I wonder if there's some way to do that on phones so it's just their computers due on the processing and you're just basically watching it to video you know and it's interesting computing. Yeah now see. I thought NIANTIC was going the ingress anime route and just kind of giving us a little bit of light. Predictive programming that the goggles are coming. So we're going to be able to those security guards. She'll like have the scanner on as a pair of goggles in. They're like wow. I've got like twenty thousand expertise the destroy this portal. Yeah or even better like I believe. Apple and Google are working on contacts like they're not even glasses asses they're actually contacts stays. Shut up and take my money right like. She just won't know who stupid anymore because his looking at their out and they'll be able to answer any question relating your where in the context aren't you. I remember when we used to just sit around and smoke weed and it did not like this. That went is that what you get the Mount Lake where does do do the move. Maybe oh wait a minute. Why didn't I'm I like I said well Rogo like it? That's that's how much of a consumer they've made me into dry the shape and just moundou. Hopefully they won't see the shirt and then sue us now because it is on the website if you have uncovered up at school purple duct tape right here. I'm Dante or maybe it's a sponsor of sponsorship opportunities career thing isn't that Pepsi Pepsi close. It's clearly yellows coke anyway so then that would but that was kind of my week. I'm glad you're remembered that I think I was Kinda brain dead pro. Yeah I remember all those things have to shoot. Shoot a trying to look over you. One day. I'm waiting for and speaking of what else have you been doing this week. Age Do Jay from the resistance doing a few things thanks. I put some small fields out. Oursel- doing a little what. I call mixed martial arts mixing geocaching with ingress. I found this little guy right here. Found him is that a real frog. That's inside the I. I tried to Nancy Pelosi. Infant half just doesn't do that so we'll get rid of him so a geocaching these like user you needed like a GPS device. Can you just do it all on your phone now on your phone. It's been that way for like ten years also catch up with modern it's modern and there's a couple of things and they're designed that I would like to see come towards What's an ingress? But we don't talk about that some other time. So yeah wasn't there's nothing Greenfield's go up south of mine south me working I. I think I might have been scouted by our Christmas episode. Scouted I yeah I had somebody come through said you know. We've got this barbershop quartet choir and we want you to come sing with us. I'm like sure argument at dry so Tuesday night. I'm singing barbershop. Look for field and IT. It was a neat experience. Look hand me down so it was Kinda neat. So who knows. Maybe I'll I'll do. Do the barbershop Quartet version of ingress. You'll have to. You'll have to record some for us. We can play on the show. I'll be the guy in the back. So they they were smart they put back. Yeah other NAT. Just just keep on that hacking streak my hacking shrink. It is to about totally by accident. But it's working out. I screwed up New Year's Day and so my first streak was year's Day so I think Monday Monday thirty seven now so see if I can get passed by. I think I'm up up two hundred and fifty seven or something. I'll you can beat that. At least I should be able to. Well you would think so zero days. We anyway yesterday soon as I hit so so journal actually like I'll try not to go off on a horrible tangent here with this S. but how I ended up losing my original day one suggestion was that on day. Seven hundred seventy seven of the original run. I decided it was going to sleep in for an extra thirty minutes. got a basement. Gothi pull out my scanner and at that point it was just like instinctively attempt. Open the scanner. Go to the now tab. Make sure that the number is still there thought I had hacked twelve hours. Prior skipped gift probably sold. It was zero immediately. It was like freedom. I'm free because this was interesting saying I think it went through the flu at least once to blizzards and a couple of colds on that span of seven hundred seventy seven days so I I will admit I went out Saturday in my daughter's shoes and a pair of shorts and across the alley to the portal. It's a block away so thank God. It was late enough. Nobody was watching. Because here's this crazy man shoes and shorts three five degrees. I'm like McKay. I've done worse just to take out the trash like I think extreme violence and I was wearing the the Fox Gu like I just I was like I mean the house. I wanted to take out the trash clothing his so inconvenient. So you're on the run outside and like if someone sees me. This run really asked to talk about for the rest of the week during my sewed journal Battle. That's when I had my gallbladder surgery I had to have my wife take me one day is that and then the the next day like she had gone to work or taking the anyway I was like I can't miss this so I walked the mile and a half to the closest Portland back home two days after my surgery my wife was like you're you're crazy you're crazy go back home now so vain. How'd your week? Oh Oh goodness this has been a very busy very busy week both in and outside of ingress and I think I said that last time but work has definitely been racking up a lot. So I've been I'm trying to get in as much ingress in the void isn't work that consults constitutes the rest of my waking hours hours so kind of started out had first Saturday last weekend. Went to Frederick Marylands here in the US US and did a little bit de drop mixed with a little bit alive drought question mark so essentially what it was doing there. I decided to give away one of does Red Solo Cup coins. Got Another one here somewhere. It's in the pile of things. OFFSCREEN did not prep to show but gave give that away with a couple of bio cards and the way that it did. The drought was at a couple of location clues that printed out and put him BAGGIES tatum. To do you know benches and different things totally creepy or look suspicious or anything of that nature and then I went. I hid in a coffee shop and and told agents hears about where you can find. Some of these location clues cut him loose and nobody family. Wow so it was clearly searching. Like they're no clues or anything just so actually actually backtracked. The way that I started out with the federal was that I had made a plan for how it was going to sneak to the coffee shop. That was going to hide at so. I threw a teaser on on my finger channel broadcast channel in telegram just saying at exactly thirteen thirty one. Go to this bar bar and restaurant like stand outside just like wait outside. This is a staging location and await further instructions so as soon as thirteen thirty one rolls around I had to just automatically go out into the feed to say. Look for target beacon in your scanner. And that's where you'll find the first clue and accruals. Soon as I saw that post go through and go out to the public I deployed the beacon and I just started running tour. I needed to hide. That's not sketchy or anything. No no not at all in agents did find the first set of location clues but I guess the timing was just poor. Everybody has finishing up with first Saturday just for like now we want to get that. AP Outta here who wants swag. So so nick L.. Think planning it like after the F. S. like you know it starts when the ends. Yeah I think I might go that route or maybe a little bit before a little bit after just a win overlapping. This is the first one that I did where they've they've all been overlapping when I've done that drops but this was the first one where it just seemed like. There was so much else going on that either people noticed late and and I didn't want to run it over past like the the first Saturday checkout or the socialist. I decided like Oh. Put a pause on this and that's actually when I decided to do an old school. Xm Bake Sale. So that was another thing that I had on my calendar here for the week. But it's an old school Exim Basil for those of you. That aren't privy is when you pretty much have like a social gathering with bunch of agents and generally someone that's got the big swag bag comes in and just says all right we're we're gonNA open up our scanners and whoever has the highest connector stat or deployer like you get some sort of a prize and they make it fun by saying like the weekly Stat. Whoever's got the highest in the week or the highest month all time and that was something that has to do it a lot of old school socials and And some of the old November meet ups so I had a lot of fun with that. It sounds like the old friends that I used to hang out with. Need to come to one of these bake sales and all I see generally niantic would always go to these things and they they would do like the highest stat all the time and it was always like you would see people at the socials great. They're getting everything. And then those people auto billing all man here all in buyer cars again so I would like to mix it up in a couple of times. I think I had a bunch of anchor swag that I had to away during the original. Dr Sun Hartford Connecticut Anomaly and I ended up giving away like a battery to somebody that had the most Lincoln's in their inventory. This was immediately post anomaly. So they weren't supposed to have the Lincoln camps in their inventory. But I think someone having like forty Lincoln's and they want a battery so I guess you win and then you go reckon or yeah a little bit over the weekend. I decided I've been doing a little bit of Puerto Rico and so I've been hitting up some trails in my Local AO trying to figure out where can submit some portals for some devious feeling so did a little bit of exploration on a trail. I hadn't untouchable four submitted a couple of things. So let's see how wayfair shakes out. I think the last thing I've got on here and it might be a little bit too early for this but if anyone is planning on going to the perpetual HEX athlon. That is in Miami Florida beyond the lookout. Because I'm planning on attending and working out the details now and I'd like to do some sort of a dead drop. They're so I'll be on the lookout. You're driving down to that one. Yes yes so. We're actually trying to break the trip up between two days that way. It's not the full like seventeen eighteen hour drive. That does I go through Atlanta or y'all bypass it towards the east. I I think bypass I can't remember. I've only done that Dr once for Orlando during the old obsidian series and that was like at a certain point the brain fog is just like we're still on the road on but we're just going out to hit water. Wonder how far is Miami from Orlando. I think it's a good couple of hours distance extra lake. Because that's all I was thinking is is like our airport here is like normally we drive to like national because the tickets are just outrageous here but they got a new. Do I believe frontier here. So they have like twenty nine dollars tickets to Orlando all the time. And I'm like I five there and drive down. That's might be doable. Three and a half hours to thirty six miles maybe just finding agent coming from Orlando be like. Hey can you fly into Fort Lauderdale. I they have like a set like like from Huntsville to Orlando thing. Okay so I I haven't heard of anywhere else in Florida that that they fly so and he delayed rescue from an airport and then return you safely to the airport. I don't think I would you. That's a lot to like throw on someone who already driving forty billion hours envy. We got an AIRBNB so mary. Also that kicks Murph by The Hague's athlon. I'm so confident I'm I'm not even GONNA go get number one remote wages that's right that's a bed and with all the beards here including the one in the Chad. That's you know there's the bets that could be had about shaving and I used to be an outnumbered. That's okay. We lost babies like shaving. I'm sorry I didn't mean it dude I was. I was just spitballing. Coin Shak Andrew. I've got stairs you in trouble much. Swag stolen the car from the trip. That's to coin checks. This one's not for me are we. Are We doing more coin checks to. I need to know. We're we're good sure. We're going to talk about fields. Just go there you go. It's going to read silicon in a string well so in news this week we have a few items the first one here is the DIA dact field challenge and will linked to the story on the Asian Kademi podcast website. Where are we have posted the dates that we know so far which is basically image and a more detail students? I really. You don't need to go there and read that there. It is except for the date. The dates are there too. I believe starts. February fourteenth thing goes for along. Who's got that off the tip of? They're I know pressure. I WanNa say Twenty Fourth Orgies Not GonNa immediately we got the link here. It's all it's a Field challenge of some sort and it will be from. Why lied? Yeah it's not in the story. What Moron posted now until the twenty four hour red? I remember thinking ten days so that'll I'm so starting on Valentine's Day that's a that's a kicker for a lot of people the many you'll be out not as bad as global charts over Valentine's Day like the amount of favors that allowed that one to Dr Daley. Hey I'm just gonNA drive to pure city real quick and come back because we need to get royalties like right now. Chocolate on the way like Valentine's state in Ireland was was very elaborate is how I manage that it so any any speculation with the failed challenge. Resume it'll be something to do with fielding maybe be more. AP for fields and then badges for number fields or do you think they'll go with a lot of tape over his mouth. Oh yeah so. Apparently they know some extra information that he can't talk about Asia do yes. What do you think it's going to jail? I think it's going to beef fielding because I love to field but how's the scoring. Why do you think it's going to be number fields? Are you going to be a mood. The easy way to do it would be totally. Yeah totally mucus number fields. That just jumped so quickly. Unless there's a certain you know we're taking a measurement at X.. Time or like they usually do within this two-minute period or something like that and then who has the highest the highest fields. 'cause it'll it'll be easy to do. I mean the last funds have been group and individual right so there is like the overarching. You've got to get this so much. So they could say you've got to get a million fields or they could say you know it needs to be a billion IMMU I know that I've seen some score sheets for for Saturday's that are keeping track of some of those stats for Immu. Some of the stuff that you would see an anomaly. So maybe they're bringing that stuff kind of back and then besides the global kind of challenge part of they'll be an an individual part to earn the tiered badges so it's like how much how many field you have to make. If it matters matter how much they could make a difference. I think you get a badge of you. Cover one of the Asian Academies Hose House. You get a badge if you do all three all three you get to go. So are we saying only goes fills northfield. The previous wins three thousand one hundred thirteen in all fields. Let's talk about not trying to make the game friendly for new players and you can make a field. That's not a field. How's that work? Apparently okay so oh the other aspect of it will be how to get the other faction out right so it seems like they'll be something AA P for destroying fields or destroying resonator ze. Yeah I think they've kind of from past experience not too long past owes read. They figured out that you can't be one sided. You can't Dan you know. Just do building and giving we're destroying you know you've got to have that balance otherwise people figured out pretty quick and they they build them in. It's done it stagnates stagnates. So you still have that competition. I I like the fax and all that stuff but you still gotta have the competition still gotta kill frogs every now and then or smurfs. They're tough. Yeah so we'll see hopefully soon we'll get some more information if not early next week. We're show up on tate so next Friday Also four new avatars have been added to the scanner. If you'd I'd like to purchase those and so those will change your your like what you move around as in these are kind of celebrating archetype. So aren't alchemists. Pick your child spiritualist dreamer and the skeptic will apparently change when you get closer to portals portal and now I'm like looking at like I've been using the dreamer and I'm like trying to do something I'm like do do something. So have you been used Fox skeptic it gets more Wigley when it approaches approaches portals like the dreamer wheels allowed. When it gets close to Portal's Oh so they all do something? Not just the skeptic. I don't know I couldn't be Ryan to need to test more. You do more those skeptic on there and see what happens I figured the skeptic would disappear being skeptic. I don't believe that it's not gonNA happen right just like it's Murph. Also added to. The scanner was the vintage Akira. su-casa metal in this is one. They've brought back now. It's only available till tomorrow at the time of this recording February seventh. So I don't know about those kind of chatter about that because that's a rare rare one and now I can buy the rare one. You Know I. I wish they would do something. Like maybe you know put redacted wings on it or something that and that lets you know the differentiates this from the true original now. Granted if you look at somebody's scanner and you can tell that that's the original. The real one is is wade out the bottom. And this one's near the top you should. You should be able to tell that a little bit. But still it'd be nice to differentiate the two well and do you know how how you got the original one was it a bio card so technically someone could have the bio card pull it out today and then it would be at the top of their scanner to and I have no idea you how how has given out generally pack at one point a couple of nevertheless has or trading for it so and I agree I like. I've just kind of assumed that there would be something different with it and that maybe the border would even be. You know a little different but it doesn't sound like that's okay. I don't know it all I haven't I haven't seen the original one. I don't think it's on. I don't think I've seen much. I mean it's like the original Layton Wolf ones and that kind of stuff. They're they're so rare. You don't see him. I I want that one. So bad the I o.. L. W. Badge was so hard to get a hold of because it was very limited in the amount that even went out and I think there was at one point like a rerun of them and you could get them for a limited time at certain events but then that was pretty much it A couple of giveaways here and there but if they put that one in the store oh you better believe online. Is that as rare. Where's the badge? So is this this it real close Blahnik here. Maybe this will help us. I think the twenty seventeen Akira that you got there so I mean I kind of agree if you got it legit I guess the word would be whether you traded for Bursar were there. It does kind of make it a little bit less special but you know in and maybe it's a little bit of us because in Beers pass our diet years past but episodes pass we talked. They really should start monetize this stuff. They should monetize stuff and then and they are. Yeah but there's a way to do is and like you were saying with Gio cash like they monetize it with. I think that's kind of a clever idea with the bugs. So they sell bugs with the like serial numbers on it interacting tracking bugs and stuff like that. Yeah why don't want they sell like little little. I guess they had had two frogs and smurfs because they can't do smurfs but they can. Do you know coins with with the faction logos on them and then on the back. Have a serial code code and then you can leave it at a portal. I don't know and then if someone finds it they can put it in. Let s long that. Yeah somehow well it gets passed along and see where they could then show where that coins traveled to across the world. Just based off the area alight alight agent who enters in the code or something I can track. All chard said that we're short and what if it was like an anomaly. How many coins can you get to that anomaly? So it's like is people get them and then they begin to another agent or and now they have that at the anomaly and you can. I don't know how they would tell their but there's some way to do stuff like that and I think that would be fun and in A way to make some money but there's tons always make money. I think this is the this is really interesting for me to hear because I've heard heard like both sides of the debate here with returning the old to carry two medals and sewing them again. He's like initially. I was kind of like there are certain mills that I would want to purchase if I could get a hold of them because they were rare off and I feel like enough time has passed. Ask like it's still going to be very noticeable like if I purchased one of those today still going to be very notice at the top profile and so now they can't change like shifting staffer. I guess you wouldn't really want them to do that. On the profile on unlike missions being able to move stuff around. But you know it's like on Harry Potter. You can pick your favorites you know. Put Him up there. So it's like it's it's kind of limiting that sort of stuff if it's like well now you don't know if those are this or that but I mean like I to me. It's all they had to do was change the border. That's it simple. was that just something different. And it's still the image you can like I haven't bought any of these honestly because I didn't want I want to. I want to get it that way but if if I knew that it was like well now you can see this and you know that it was just something I bought ought to support them. I would have and so it was. It was the difference to me whether I bought it or not and I kind of wanted them. Just their badges badges no need no stinking badges but anyway that's just me I know tons of people feel different. Let us know how you feel. They'll keep doing. I know in a recently with like the the misty Hannah the new oil w badge and the seek calvin the fact that those were available. Just you know street in the store. More of those more of those. Like give us more of the all-religion Wolf with like the Hoodie. Just like Dolly measly no style lake or digital badges like that or I don't know maybe maybe maybe a couple of Newest characters that we don't have in the Kurt. Roster gives wings. I would tell you if they just do player created badges and it could be run just like opr where they go into a system and they basically get approved but once they get approved they go out to sail and then you can buy the badge and so like you could make one for your local ingress group and be like. Hey It's there and you have that on there. We could do one for the show. You know all these different different things could make badges you you know it. It can get removed. If somehow you know penis got slipped in right right like get found. They'll get removed. But I think that would be a ton of money for them and badges but then also what pointer like badges is like scroll for two years so they need to Redo how like maybe another section for community badges. Yeah maybe you just need to Mak- companion program that does that and it's just not even part scanner make your millions the in the game releases player. Run you're asking a lot and but that's how the portal networks built. It's play run. That's how that's how a lot of ingress is run player on. You Know Vanguards Vein Guards always thought it's it's been interesting during some interview or article somewhere. John Hanky was quoted as like seeing the ingress scanner is a tool more more than like a straight game so like the original redacted scanner was was very basic in what offered but it was kind of the tool to interact with the portals and game play. Early on was more emergent. Like you didn't really get a set of objectives other than just make fields if you choose to go about that and build communities that's all emerging in play that you know. The scanner gives you the the ability to interact with us. So more like a really wanna see more things in ingress I kind of take that community aspect in the emergent game play and just run with like provide us more tools like took it almost like minecraft put the bones there and then ways for us to play in the sandbox folks that is ingress and that's one of the things a little bit different about ingress. A couple of the other programs are games and things like that. You know you got one thing you play it and that's it the you can't really compete in unless you're you know you're opening up the map and you're looking at other things you've got those companion programs you you've got to be talking to other the players so you run and three or four different APPS. And they're not apps in many cases that are specifically designed for ingress. You know I if I know Meierya gotTa have telegram Graham Talk to other agents if we're doing up that kind of stuff and that's that's different because when I first started like this one. This one program The greatest lie. That's rare. GOOD ANYTHING CHELSEA GAS IN MY car three times a week gave right new shoes. And Yeah you have to buy those specials gloves that you can use your phone. When it's too below you'll have Amazon? Wish list of stuff I want for ingress breath like why would you need. That taught me the other day I was like I gotta get this piece of Velcro wise so I can strap the thing straps on your arm from your phone that to my leg. She's like what are you. What drugs are you on was perfect? Because if I'm driving down the road it's right there and I can see it. It doesn't fall on my lap. She's like oh not select. Trifles game works real good. Though by the way I got jeff from from agent WHO's a wheelchair region I saw like. Oh that is a really smart idea. It's really smart way to go about it. Yeah so if somebody pads that makes many two percent right off the top. Yeah that's how it works and then I think we get one on just for being near you when it happens. Okay I'll trickle down so let me get zero percent. We used to get one percent of your percent at that. Sounds good to me. I mean oh academy quintile gear that agents have like these these extra things that we accumulate just by the agents quote unquote so all the extra batteries the clothing that you buy the extra gloves the whole nine yards with that it. It was really funny from the beginning when people started talking about that. Like I'm not going to buy an external battery to play this game but Ringo came out. It's like if you didn't have on your phone. I'm just could not like Ingram was easy on phones at the beginning. It was not easy so we just started all trading reading like. Oh go at Amazon this specific anchor and get this. You're going to need better cables because the cables you can actually charge your phone and feel like the pokemon mind go community and went through the same phase of Lake through this whole market of consumers learned that there is this like existence of of all these different products that they never thought they were going to need ounce like. I need this and that was a perfect time to go. Okay as antic I anti. Let's work with these companies and with anchor in like make a line of batteries with cables and holders and rain this and that and be like. Here's our store that's on our game site to and you can buy it right here with what was there some hardware Out At one time. Yeah so they've batteries and couple of other miscellaneous things at some points points. But there's the Chiro English battery which was the first. I think like sponsored branded battery. That had a bunch of lake extra lights and the ingress logo on it and then anchor offered the power cubes they had the two different faction colored anchors and actually enlighten one had a green led in it which all of the other anchor batteries are blue light assault so new and then there was. There's there's another one ANA moto. Is that the name of it now. Amna bus have you heard of that. Yes so how do you actually buy something but they have a battery or battery. It's now sold out. So Wha ah but they have some anime gear English the anime gear there that you can get some patches is and some buttons and ties and then there's another company that does like jewelry ingress jewelry but it's all in Japan and it's like it's like what country United States is not in the last. Just just go onto a VPN. Put Yourself in Japan. Make the purchasing. I just I just need to shift in the. US You tell you how to spoof. Legal curbing the chat yeah. He reminded he reminded us at nine and gave away tiny Motorola batteries at the original. Thirty Magnus in San Francisco at the after party. So yeah one. Although as I did the livestream during that so there's an old recording of livestream somewhere and you'll see me with like a resistance flag by me for that way again. No No uh-huh ah gotTA keep trying. I'M GONNA work. Where are we going to talk about? Requiem the We were it was in here somewhere. Yeah I jumped over something so requiem anomaly. Yeah do you WanNa wait and talk about the other I well. Let's talk about the anomaly. Okay since I brought it up because it's a Munich and it looks as though they have a page up fort Of course it's not live and going with everything but it. It looks like there's an onsite activation which would be free. So that takes that you know. Are you GONNA have to pay to play with it and off site activation and it looks like you're getting double A.. P. During the event and you get a nemesis recommend an APP metal if your participation verified and if you're onsite accounting for a GNOME anomaly scoring do you receive report of your anomaly actions with your place on the leaderboard and if you're not on site you just basically don't get to be counted in anomaly scoring but you give report of your anomaly. Actions and requires remote participation during the nominee received the medal and there's an official after party cross faction saw all that all the special information for that. Oh come I'm assuming in the next couple weeks wchs digital kits there so it looks like Saturday. They're going to have a group photo the anomaly and then the after party and then Sunday like many times they're gonNA follow it up with the mission day so I'm GonNa throw out something controversial here but an idea for monetization and get people excited about anomalies. Who can't go ovalles in off site activation kit and it's paid? I'm okay. Hey with things being paid and with that you get all the stuff you get for like the remote stuff but you also get five random keys from the play box so now you can recharge you can't make it to a recharge guard room or anywhere else and it's not like you have every keyed so it may not even be used but if it is you can get there Aaron and help out you know for a guy with a big hole this head you think pretty good. Sometimes that would make money. WOULDN'T IT I. I would pay to do that day if I'm not going to. You know be able to hop a plane to the Germany. I can feel like I'm taking part of it but the thing is it's going to be so far away or you're going to have any effect on the recharge. Yeah it's all going to depend right depending on how I mean like this one. I don't even know like I don't know how close you have to be like with the I don't know how far the ocean is. Maybe they make a special key that you can double that range that did you actually can have an effect like maybe. There's a whatever the like minimum like recharge like maximum loss. If if your past that you at least have the middle trickle something in charge you never hit the badge then. So that's the problem. I would really love to see what if you could charge it right so silly rather than selling like a a key to to the anomaly so you can do remote retry because of all the complexities as for that. Would love to see one of these global finale anomalies have a true to life remote. Option that maybe me. It doesn't give the exact participation badge like maybe it gives another supplementary badge that way there are reasons for agents to attend the actual anomaly on the ground and then there's something I think like. Hey you can still get a global participation for this and actually influenced the anomaly in some way either through like I don't know like something with capturing portal's creating fields links you name it supply-chain trick that you could measure ofo ofo but like that. It would probably require some serious automation. Because I don't want to make those kinds of suggestions for people to score that uh-huh it'd be neat if you could. Even you know like move. I'm thinking of a supply line if he could do links to go into the box and then you can ship ship stuff in for your for your faction or arming. What if they could even do something on on the Intel you know it actually surf the Intel like find some dead drops or something that would pop of when you're clicking on portal or something like I feel like there's some way you too like they've got to balance they don't want to do something that people are GonNa WanNa do instead of going to the anomaly? I think anyone and from the US. Who's going to the anomaly? Probably wouldn't forgo that in lieu of one of these ideas breath. Yeah so I think it's going to be like low enough rewards to get somebody to get you participating in the event. Maybe maybe something like a coating challenge that drops and then you can send information to your faction on the ground and say hey. There's you now a volatile bottle here and that's the only way they know it something like that. Yeah I was just looking for it but I Andrew Andrew beat me to it. Gooney is just forward. You a little sticker. That has the the recharge radius for believe. That's the level sixteen radius from you and you're not hitting all the US by the way that does the same thing you basically tell it like. Oh here showing the recharge radius. But I'm sorry unless you're on a cruise ship or you want to get Iceland or something. It's it's not happening that's like do Jay was saying they could make something. `then towards like double or you can trickle it in if you have these special keys or something like there's a way to do it. Yeah and make it work and make a niche. You could send I mean you're sending information to your to your players when you get this image up here for the people watching on the livestream. Let's just or something along the decoding almost because decoding. I've gotta go to Greenland for Northern Africa Northern Africa so this is going to be like a really weird anomaly. It's almost like it's an. It's an anomaly within how much it's like much less recharging happening and I don't know well when you hear it on the on the head it's going to be a little different. Even getting tickets visit tickets are GonNa be through your scanner this time isn't it. Yeah what were they. Not last on couple of inside did run. The scanner. John Larson was yes. You Register in an APP and then you can make the payment or go with the free option and then It was just the thirteen. Go out half the things and then anomaly. Heck heck all of them. Yeah because that was the first one that I mean like we talked about on the show. It was weird because they were charging like last minute they decided to announce they were charging for like the rechargers. And Yeah but it was all like weird in-app no one on ground kind of thing and it was all kind of you. You know whatever but so. They're getting that tech down but this'll be interesting. It'd be fun to see what happens. I'm sad we'll be there. Do we know anything about the rules. And what scores. And what doesn't score the rules linked from there. The event page that. I don't see a so. Apparently they just have the previous rules there for now. The one's gall's yet no rules yet if we have rules that early. Oh boy there'd be getting bond planning upon planning. Yeah once available. Rose will be linked there and they have links to how to coordinate with your faction. If you are planning to go you probably already know those places. So you know rocks or will be blue and I think that's all about the anomaly that we know we know the image. The new image looks like a afire for those who are in the livestream. The image the kind of image. I'll have to throw out it's Looks like a seashell. Looks like a bad drain right. I'm studying the badging was like Oh man it looks cool. Roy Is my favorite colors reds so there are very few badges that have that. No CASSANDRA that was it. Wasn't it gets inter. Yeah but very few more actually made a basically CASSANDRA agent academy shirt because red blacker like my face. That's why I was worried about the red fax and I was like. Oh man it's GonNa GonNa be tough. It's going to be in shape now. Won't do it too much green now but you know I would definitely be able to to scout stuff against the routine because I would be able to fit in so we also had some. I guess sad news. We had to vanguard's resigned. This past week eminem. Two of seven and pint singer. They both Basically attributed to losing the magic of ingress. They weren't feeling the magic anymore and a lot of that seem to be because of inclining player base and Sad see them go part of the vanguard so I know they were helping out and I've only met pint singer. I believe it one of the Boston nominally. I think But you know community members helping out and stuff for a long time so hope those two well wishes and that they find something that brings magic to their life. Maybe ingress prime two point now. Are there any plans to replace him. Vaneau oh you know or is it a go on without or so you know. I don't even know if I can like really comet comet directly on that. Wait wait so I mean I mean but I'm not that we we'll just make assumptions. Then they're probably just GonNa let the Vanguards One by one die out and then close the program. That's what I'm guessing and since Maine can't say anything thing now I'm sure hopefully we'll hear something. I know Brian posted listed to both of them. Wishing them well and thanking them for Helping out so hopefully they're still invested in that program program. Hopefully the comments in the I mean they say that is still invested in the program going anywhere. There are many less that definitely want to continue doing anything that we can to influence influence things in give the community of voice but I completely understand where everyone is coming from that feels frustrated both inside and outside outside the program and it you know it's sad to say but I can understand where they're coming from and why they feel that they've reached that sort of impasse where they could order continue. Well yeah and I just say I appreciate you being in their vein. In and all the rest of the vanguards that are staying there and trying to kind of work through the hard times so does like as is your. Everybody appreciates that. I know it definitely. Don't say thank you enough for for that kind of as as it's it's been a rough week it's been a rough week. Advocates hard thing and being an advocate. That can't really say everything right like like you've got to kind of. I'm sure you hear things. Sometimes it's like man. I wish I could just let people know you know this was coming or that was coming. Because then they'd be excited sided and happy and wouldn't be as you know this or that I mean it's just like I can't say thing I feel like it's a little bit of art form though like I'm slowly getting better as it. Azam exposed to hit the brick wall western things like normally. I'm a little bit more prepared and I can kind of figure out like when someone goes with the question that I'm -ticipant like okay. Here's here's what I can say about this but at certain things if it's just left field it's like oh how we talk around this. They don't WanNa do that. UPDATES a prime updates two two three nine three. Yeah I think it can. I have just gotten the update because like when I opened my my scanner. Look for that badge. There's this like green like outline to Porto view that I don't remember seeing before it was very different. Says it updated visuals inventory items to increase contrast and vibrance on low and mid tier devices. They added the avatars and we talked about on added some featured Bundles carousel off. So I do believe they started rolling this out like on on the around the thirty first but then paused it. Due to first Saturday in other countries was coming along and so they paused the rollout. Tell just the fourth or the fifth so I guess if I hadn't gotten the auto update in that maybe I did. Just get get it so I'm seeing too big bug fixes in one event. The speculative fix to dress randomly occurring faction selection election. So I assume that's the thing that we've kind of seen or hear when a people start it's like. Oh guess what. You're going to be enlightened oil. What it or you're going to be in most cases I what I heard it was you're going to be resistance You know thank and they talk about Ghost resonator 's spooky what are what are is a ghost resonator they would just follow you know so like when you're in combat like fierce portal combat and you're destroying and deploying resonator the winds trying to get all that sweet for Saturday bonus. AP and then the portal looks like it has just one really fat thick resonator connected to it because they've just been ghosting and stacking up. I haven't seen more like anomalies. Same thing happens at an I always. There's the lag like I've seen the Horta light follow. Follow me around. This is the actual resin the individual resident herself. Your gets bigger so it's almost like the the image of the resonator nater being on the scanner still sort of unclear world like ghost fields. You know if you take the field that's been there for ever it. It might take a while for that field. Drop in the map although it's gone if a if you were around Prime Lodge Ghost resonator like really really bad first week or two. I just must be real lucky. I haven't seen it and maybe that's what I'm seeing when I think it's a portal. Maybe I don't know like I see ghost linked still like throwing like somehow through over that link. Think that's not a real link. Yeah the ghost link. I've seen ghost fields. I don't know if I've seen ghost links but I have a long resonator Waco Post this one in the chat where just like it's just a really long resonator but sometimes you know you get along in their genetics ninety that Brian also. Brian commented that on the ghost. Resonator is the latest update rolling out to three nine help reduce the number of Ghost resumes from occurring. But the issue can still occur with a lot of contention like a first Saturday event and they'll continue to investigate further and Red Solo. Cup has reminded me that I need to play. Actually see the thanks. Are they gander. Oh that's awesome me. He redeemed some of of his academy points. So it was highlighted. That's cool so it showed up. I haven't seen that happen yet. So he's just a happened guiding try. Try to do everything. So we've been running in our in here and I know I have a few other things. Do we want to run to those this real quick. Yeah let's hit him real quick. I suffer from PA Shapiro. Oh or pack. Pass along a message from a to any of those agents that are temporary discovers and all ages participated since I learned about the desolation back in October Wants to give shout out so to be featured they say post photos of yourself at the target Bortles or the Dropped on your social channels like facebook twitter instagram etc.. And then tag it you uh-huh Ingress desolation your faction and then either re tweet or share on its official ingress social channels and and they recognize. It's not a whole not a big thing but they wanna give you something so ever test rate retrieve counts ever every portal visited matters so I kept thinking I was gone. It's like others going to be a test rate. Drop on Monday. The tesseract drop on Tuesday. I haven't seen it so we'll be part of the end of the just the end of the war in number six rows Shinya and speaking of twitter and giving out codes like I remember when they used to do the like the field cliff the symbol of the month. And maybe that stopped with with Andrew leaving but you would get like for submitting the staff they would send out a much passcodes. I mean that was like a really good pass go. It was like twenty redeems or something like that like is that you think they'll start that. Do you know vein. If that's a uh even talked about maybe they just forgot about it. Maybe Andrew was doing it so low. I think this this commentary is safe because I pretty sure Brian has talked about this publicly at for Saturday's but I think they're trying to kind of bring a little bit more of that like old school will ingress dead drops in like the middle of the night. Random places vibe to two things kind of get people more interested in that so almost expect like make more pass. Codes are different dead drop approaches at some point. It's unknown if in win and and I don't really think there's any late concrete details other than the fact that Brian Has Mitch and it's something that he he would like to see. More of okay in crew did mention monthly gift challenge with speaking at round six scores. And I think that a this probably is the first time around six. Both enlighten and resistance are ahead and emphasis resistance. Leads was sixty three enlightened fifty eight and nemesis just with fifty. So you in this first started. We were like Oh my God. How are we going to catch up with emphasis? But after a couple of rounds they figured out how to place those things on the board and and Really has helped out the score. So as nemesis gained any points like how do they gain points. Dave gained I think the last one I watched they had a couple from placement placement and I think they might have got a couple because neither side place one correctly. That's growing. It has both factions. Yeah show if we fail they win is what kind of comes down to you when we fail so so my scanner to make sure. I didn't have any just going to say all sure if any of our recycling I think before you like think before you recycle right are are they titled something. Uh Things. Your suggestions aren't they kind of looks like our logo. I think they stole it but you know what what do I know like. I don't get like they're all hexagons. xts Xt off. I gotTa Hexagon Calvin Nexus a hexagon a simple test rival. What should have for media? They were all global droughts. Like some of those were global drafts that you just named off so they were just available a during a certain window of time in the past people to go and post that they had him mullahs forums got the discovery status Seattle beyond that like I dunno. I look at the stuff. That's coming down on my inventory so I've got to go look for the staff like maybe glue. Glowed road are shone brightly. The you know on your scanner hacked tech go back layer like okay good. I don't really know so unmasked Aven is this one. Oh ooh I tell the things that you have right now are old so okay so if I see any more hexagons so I'll delete these or should I say these Galeta go ahead Toledo with the resistance says is I'm putting them in a capsule do that after the show. This is really wheeling. We got any idea when the next one is going to drop the he's GonNa Trim Media. I don't well no hold on. We'll he's thinking decoding challenge this week. Jay I'm sorry what decoding challenge. It was a total mystery to me. I didn't see anything on it. So is it not going on anymore. Decoding challenge okay. So I think they're. They're kind of just gearing up for the next round but that's kind of the Nice thing about ingress is nice. Nice no when everything's happening but you have those things it's like. Oh what's this. When did this start? You get to do a little bit of discovery. So I my I gut tells me we're going to see it then egg next week stuff from the field test best Shohei. So the next challenge alchemist will be posted next week on the tent. Can't so this week was the ninth challenge the explorer challenge so and at the tenth I guess it starts the tenth. Whenever the first tenth of first tenth worldwide wide happens so it may not be there for me and my be still February ninth for me to fourteen eighteen hundred hours or two? Nour's I had a I had a plan. That's like okay. I'm just GONNA keep keep an eye on the community chat and when I see one show up in the community the chat. I know they're out there and I can go get mine. But that's probably GONNA be too late so just going to have to keep hacking the middle of the night. Well I think before or we hand out our pass code. We're going to do a little little quiz between y'all so first off. The the first archetype was dreamer. I'm going with yes. It was dreamer. How many people do you think have solved dreamer to date vein agent vein? How do you think I'm the agents? Geez have not been paying attention enough to to this. No searching scores. Thirteen thirty one. Okay and Agent Deejay many say twelve seventy five. Let's let's go with six thousand one hundred and eleven so multiplied by his close. So take that and let's see where on explore. How many do you think this sobbed explorer? Now it's just the most recent eighty four thousand seven hundred. It's closer nine hundred sixteen solvers. And so there's four more to come out alchemist. trickster catalyst and patron the the tenth seventeen twenty fourth and then ending on the second and so now we can see who the top decoders are. And I'm doing this not including dreamer that while you're not in this out of my own bitterness. I'm not on any of them. The HIVE mind mind is number one on that list so one of those that he solved it and zero seconds. I don't know how to read these numbers. They have here. Zero seven four seven three three seven days for the total title. Maybe the total total for the best eight is under eight days so I think that's pretty good. The next closest is thirteen days. So good job will hit this every few weeks when we remember so I think we need to have a little competition in between all three of us here. See who the first person is to post delray in this next round knew that would. Hey so when. Do they start dropping for the next round around Monday Monday. Do we have time. Do we have time for. Oh No I. I don't know it's been a mystery thirty me I kind of think it's like zero one hundred hours somewhere in the world across the Internet somewhere they drop them all all. I don't know it always seems like somebody's found one before I do I so yeah. Let's do that because I I haven't participated in it at all and so I think that's how I have to do. It is because I don. I didn't know when things happened. Or what a when I should be looking for something you know what I mean like I just do you get something when there is every once in a while so Monday. I'll I'll start hacking and looking for hexagons. May maybe maybe Sunday Monday. Hexagon with the great ones run. And and then if I find one I go to the community forum and there's a place to just post correct. A screen shot correct. A matter of fact there is a prime tips. podcast takes you through that very good working. People find this prime tips podcast on the Internet. Internet Oh God come on man. We've got to make a page for it. Yeah we do we do. You can find Youtube. You can search in find it there. Billy Ford I think it's not dot L. Y.. Slash prime tips okay. I think people should be able to. Yeah and you can also find US hopefully hopefully next week sometime and this week you can find a code and in forget Dj Jaime J. Blazes at the keyboard. He's is right. It says A. E. W. b. f. a. and just a reminder when you hear people people leaving the game and locals reach out to agents and make a farm go say hi and get out there and don't just get out if they're alone go mingle social Is Talk to a pokemon go player. Show Him English priming. They may go. Oh my God. The last time I looked at it looked like a piece of crap and that looks beautiful. I might give it a go go with it. Because I'm telling you as poker players get the level forty. They need stuff to do. Oh and they still want to be out there and doing stuff this. This is a perfect time as I think players are probably getting there are passed it to be introduced I into another game that kind of fills a little bit of that space. I think I'd say hi. I think I've seen a little bit of that because we had a couple of players that we were Thinking were in that early plan ingress just so they can put portables out and then they disappeared appeared and now they're back. I'm like I wonder why they're back in Penton they've topped out the other game. Yeah and JJ blaze said confirmed it. Totally did not glitch. So you are a success Nice. Yeah and if you go out eating like a you know Robin restaurant a lot of them are selling some I two in T- in their cans and stuff and point that out to your co workers and friends are eaten with their go. That's in the game. I play should see this download it now. I think my daughter found a package of it in our in our kitchen and I said oh thanks for supporting ingress. She's like what you're crazy and then I showed her on. This guy's like well if I'd known that I don't know about about it right Kasese like you're still crazy. We're all crazy and thank you all for being crazy and watching the show tonight and sport in the show with chance and and all the cheers in all those different cool things and subscriptions we appreciate eight it so it helps keep the website Rowland and running. We had to update this month. Is we were going over our cap so we definitely appreciate everyone have great week get out there and move and look for. Hexagon feels fields. Take those down. Greenland's Bro uh-huh.

Welcome back I was getting worried about the Asian Academy Episode Number Seventy Two recorded on January sixteenth. Two Thousand Twenty. I'm agent Gooney Guy. I'm Jay Imogen Bain. I've got a very special guest with US tonight. Agent Daya Steph the already getting applause. Are you doing tonight and doing great. How are you doing? Thanks for having me thank you for coming on. I'm doing great and we've got a lot of questions to ask you later on and hopefully we'll get some in the chat to that will throw your way about English at sea. The and so we're super excited to hear more about that and I'm the voice tonight. I'm on the on the telephone Kinda I wanted to still keep the the Chad in the livestream tonight. So y'all got lucky to have to look at my mother wear pants. I don't even wear pants on the show. What are you talking about in this? And so we got a lot of stuff to talk about is a bunch of events besides that that one and livestream other livestream besides ours and there's a a post or a poll that Jay his posted in our telegram so interested how people feel about that question. Go check it out. If you haven't and I guess I I'll just go with what I've been. I'm doing this week since last show talked about first Saturday I was whiten on getting the from the double A.. P. Event and so I wanted to get to ten from getting that devil. AP and I missed it. I was twenty four thousand. AP away before they pushed it. I was like I'm sure I'll have one more day so I'm not going to do that. Last Twenty Four K. and Well but but I hit around the block and Effingham what a done on it just one more one more block but I did hit ten and got some freer. That's always fun and the other thing I noticed. There's this week is that I haven't noticed all the issues I used to have when I'd go into low sell signal areas and then not be able to connect and spend you know thirty minutes trying to play ingress and I just haven't even noticed it and I was just thinking about that either that they must have fixed it with that last update that we were talking about. So if you'd been experienced being seeing that as well do we know the scanners been a lot more reliable lately. I think I had one time that it Kinda wigged out on me and I I was playing with it trying to get it to out. Somebody was saying something about Stacking pursers. I wonder if you can do do that anymore. And Not really You can do it a little bit but not like I guess you used to be able to it like that. What else have you been test now? This we we can do this week. Well I had to go somewhere so I was in the cell next door so as usual I decided to bath it and but strangely enough I ran into a frog couch bottle so I had kind of my own little. I guess for Saturday there. We traded back and forth. So I I settled for a half bath. Did a half bath there and get a little creative. I've found Tessa rain. I it's like I wonder what it takes to go through the whole process but I'll make that a prime tips so I threw out a little extra prime tips episode on what to do. If you find Tessa rain how you submit it so out there and find Eh. Got One of those you know. What do I do with it kind of takes you to listen to that one? So yeah you need to listen to that whatever Eh. Because you don't you you recycle those things. Well I noticed I was looking at some of the previous ten days and I was like. Oh Yeah I had that one the green one with the spokes. I have that one. I remember seeing that one and had no aren't you had probably sending that week was the first one to find it and the other thing I had is. I'd heard of a resource. I had never really played with it. I don't know if you guys are familiar with ingress mosaic and it was really reports yeah great defined missions. Banner stuff like that. By the way there are three Asiana County Agent Academy missions out there in the World War One of them goonies. One of them is Zely bellies and I have no idea who the other one is. It's the mystery guy. I don't know really. Yeah you may try to make one and it didn't get approved for the Effingham for Saturday and they weren't GonNa Privy because they thought it was advertising something which it was so So yeah there's three out there but that's that's really good one if you want to search search up banners and if you're going on vacation you're like you know I'm going to have to wait for six hours. 'cause my in laws are just nuts. Go there I figure out where all the a mission and banners are nowhere to drive to get your sanity back. I guess we're vain. Would you do this week. Oh Jeez Jeez. So I had a decent amount of ingress over the weekend. I I guess you could say that was kind of the. It started Friday right after work. How is helping a bunch of locals try to get up a just like a local city field? We just had a plan that we've been working on for a couple of days it just kind of showing some people robes getting more people involved So it was just a lot of running around and trying to get portal's take down get up and we had a little bit of a back and forth going so Friday night Saturday morning. It was just a constant back and forth battle title where you know where hidden sunset portal's right before sunset. Everybody set their watches and the distance or doing the same thing so props to everybody for for plane in cleanly while we were going through that throughout the weekend it was a lot of fun I think. A lot of people were definitely engaged on both sides. I so I don't know how feelings are and that nature but what We got a couple of green triangles out. Green triangles came down blue skies. Blue Sky Blue Skies. There were no guys in the area. Yeah were Jason Field adjacent told Darn thing now. Well don't worry the resistance is probably going to win the sell this this time down here and that's really odd and but there are some huge fields and I guess doan including me had time to you at an dinner combat and I started building a a nice layered field up during lunch one day and I was going to finish it the next morning and woke up in even larger field and I was like I got a good at work so they probably have that feeling. Now it's going to be a PERMA field. It's going to be you know every day for the next six months. Now get out there this weekend. Okay Dorey clear it Hitless lookout the fun. I mean if if you're in a cell where you know you're the only one that's building and you're just waiting for stuff to decay that sucks. So that's why the frogs all the time go go over there and mess you up and and I don't know Dan Steph. If if you've heard this show before but we're just talking about basically what we've done since the show but that would be a lot of stuff. What have you been up to in kind of ingram stuff over the past week or so? I got to admit I've been pretty lazy so it snowed in Chicago last weekend. I had planned on On going hang on doing some feelings so you know I made my the last time. I was seriously active was for The deploy badge and made my made my my goal on that one so that was okay but you know. A lot of cemetery visits Pretty Fun you know I was. That was actually pretty entertaining. Because while I was in one of the cemetery's I saw a group of Dear Mrs you know in the middle of Chicago so you don't expect this evening. A group of deer a caretaker stops by he's like Don't get out of your car. There's a wolf hiding behind a gravestone. Oh my I do. I don't think it's actually loaf. However there were coyotes Tago which actually attacked some human? So it's possible. The North part of the state the deer running through stare and they were actually trying to get that deployed badge so yeah well and we have a few topics to go through. So let's get done with those so we can get get to the real the real show the real stuff of the first thing. We have one three three one. X Acts Event request has been added to Google's forms and stuff by NIANTIC and they want to know. Where do we want want to see events and really? Do you want one in your area and so you can go to that. Google doc are form I guess and fill it out and Dan requests when your area probably like Chicago. You got to you know vote. Early vote often so nine-times blessed everywhere completely completely filled that form and we had we've had some people in a town nearby champagne. They're like Ooh we're going to try to make the TRIFECTA because they were talking about you know trying to get the first day and a mission to enter like well. That's just bring thirteen thirteen. And just make our own little mini anomaly. So it'll be interesting to see if that influences where that goes you know. I'm sure they got apple disagree. Yeah like I think. They're smart the way that they planned it out but I think they posted saying that half on sites would get sort of like a little bit higher priority for Admission Day applications and I guess November. Lima would probably go hand in hand with that. Yeah so once all of the names in the hat so to speak I think as their sort of picking things things out it would make sense to quarter route that would hit as many of those possible Gulf point. Eight point or anything in between we hit that makes a lot of sense and it seems like all the announcements of all the heck's athlons that are being announced the people are doing them up like it's it's not it's it's going to be a lot more activities I think than the first field tests for the original heck's athlon that's exciting you really have to. I mean and as fun as the Heck southland field tests were year. You are looking at essentially ninety minutes of Gameplay and then as soon as that is over you're done on so in May sense why everybody is trying to plan out mission days. I know some sites are talking about trying to get their mission day application for same day that way you can sort of go. Do the heck's athlon and then immediately following that are a little bit before it depending on what things alive you can get your missions in so yeah a little bit better excuse for the travel. That's exactly the reason of drbble drive that two or three hours to get something you know. Am I going to drive three hours to do ninety minutes. Gameplay am I going to do it for six hours worth of game play. Yeah and if it's if it's like you know first Saturday head south on mission day one like it's a weekend like event then at that point four weekend at that point you know some many anomaly and speaking of The Hague's athlons they released more information will link all this in the show notes after the show. Of course we'll try to throw them into chat as well but they also released April dates so it's Kinda like the the anomalies when they would do two different dates so now now there's dates in April and some that are closer to you obviously closer to people that that couldn't get to the the first eight including me like this as a lot closer than Miami. I think just a little bit a- Registrations Oakland or perpetual the GO-TO INGRESS DOT com slash events and get to that So that registration is open. But if you need to probably get Japan together fairly quick because they're saying registration is going to close at February twenty-ninth that extra day at one thirty PM local time and and I've noticed that now with the heck's athlons that the whole ut see what time is it gone. It's it's all local time so you may have to figure you're out what time it is to where you're going instead. Of what time is you know. Twelve hundred utd or something like that so so yeah. If you're thinking of a Hex athlon he might start. We're planning now. You only got month and a half and is there any reason not to go ahead and registered. Now if you're thinking about location now tickets. Tickets aren't limited. So despite what the in-app sorta registration pages saying right now for perpetual and it should be the same for lexicon on the registration is not going to be limited for heck's athlon events so just go ahead registered now if you think you're going to be attending if you end up not attending. It's not going to hurt at anything. Just show up at the bottom of the scoreboard as all Zeros for stats. And they'll pay registration and other discussion about that. Now I know in one of their posts they mentioned some sort of kits is that I haven't checked the registration yet is is that in the current registration like by an extra kit with metals. Because they were GONNA do the the badges for some of the sensitive yes and no no no in the story yet Really at this moment is just the ticket registration so you can go and you can say that you want the specific specific timeframe that the event is going to be and that you're registering for one ticket for yourself and then it kicks off the email saying okay you're registered. You're ready to go so you can show up and just start. As soon as the event is ready to go and interview registered early. You might have gotten an email. That didn't have the venue. Don't worry you're you're you're going to the right place hopefully It was just a bog and they fixed that. So that's all good and I kind of figure they'll probably just do like they. They've been doing thing for other events and just that weakened over the week before just put the kids up for anyone who wanted kind of thing sooner. I don't know I don't think they have like a a specific registration area or anything like that. It's hacked the portal get started and go down but I'm sure that those locals are going to want to have a place for people to meet and greet and great those La Portals and freedom and that kind of stuff as well. Yeah what what sort of just kind of ended up naturally happening for the September field tests does add in Rhode Island was everybody just gathered around the the star portal. You so where. You've I've got the initial instructions and everything was going to kick off. It's just like out of nowhere. Flash Milo people descended upon that one portal and a little. Some confuse is local wandering around. Like what's going on you know. Some people are like pokemon rating. Like what are you guys doing. Some of the answer already putting up a page. Hey just for the heck athlons so I don't know we could probably help out with that by making a page of links to all those different pages so We'll we'll get that worked up on the website that way. Hopefully you can get in contact with that local Faction whichever faction you're you're on to get involved with whatever extra activities are going on farms and bar aggressing and who knows what else speaking of intelligence they're we're about done with the upgrades on the map tomorrow. That right that is supposedly tomorrow very goes. Well I don't know I didn't see a time. So Oh some time on the seventeenth and I. I don't know that I've noticed any difference other than it seems to be working well. So maybe that's what they were doing. Who knows hopefully you know there is still trying to work out? The kink were in very poor. Little dense areas has certain things weren't loading fully but I know that still being worked on and results are kind of varying in their depending on when you're loading and different thanks so hopefully everything is smoothed out soon and there was also a livestream this week. Zico Calvin streamed AH picture looked vaguely familiar. Maybe one hundred pounds less you and your younger days baby. Maybe so joking we could do a spoof and do like English prime rib and I can pose him. You said you'RE GONNA go right qualified. What are we putting Like Asian Academy Agnes together story. They are you gonNA hide the bodies in your garage where we on. How do you know they're not already there? We have lost to hosts. Just say I see guys who invites still tweet replace will drop off. Okay do you want to be on your mind that ceremony dagger to testify lacquer and they were never heard from again but no I think he did a good job of kind of straightening out some of the lower for some of the people that ah I mean. There's a lot that's happened in the last year. And so he kinda laid out his story and I think it helped at least helped league outside okay that that now fit together So it's really nice in a nutshell version of the O- sarus universe. Averse and Cyrus Ezekiel Calvin or Z.. Calvin is most of the investigators will call him and his experience going through. And if you're we're in a stupid follower of the Lord you would notice that. His time line was slightly different than what are twelve. Eighteen time line was with sort of everything coming to a combination with a pithy night at twenty eighteen verses way back in two thousand twelve for us. I'm telling you you need to start the English Lord podcast. 'cause I'll get some more nuggets. I'll just put some you know Lord tidbits together and we can just Kinda Arnaud your mind or something and let me check our poll. Our poll is ninety percent. The question Russian is. Would you post it on Asian Academy website right now. It's ninety percent. Heck Yeah and ten percent no way zero percent for what is a sit rep so it looks like it might be something we could do. Well I think one of those with me for the s was very yesterday so we loaded up. So there's there ninety percents I also put for. Yes how many Allah box. So therefore votes in the threes nine our way. That wouldn't elegant. I get it math. So don't do math live so yeah never do math over ninety one to a Deli and so the other thing you're talking about is doing a bath of of the week. Yeah and which I think is a great idea. We just need people to submit those or way to do it or the only bad for the week will be when I fill up the tub of the week blow. Perfect time for the veiled trout trump. What are you doing? Where's the failed trombone? Oh say a big thanks to everyone from last week who was hit and all the all the sound of modes the crew was in their hit ntim and Arctic. I think led the list So thanks everyone. That's that's always fun and it also helps pay the server the bill so I love that and I guess I was pretty much the news of the week you go to the website and see the Arctic through on but what we really want to talk about about is ingress at sea and we're lucky enough to have agent day of stuff here to Phyllis in and Get the boat filled up and everyone everyone have a great time so I guess I guess first thing if you could kind of go through and let everyone who doesn't know already what is it C.. See sure so. We had such a good time the first time we had mission day at sea that we decided we were gonNA sal again with or without niantic now. The hope is that it will be with my antics. But we're going one way or the other and so that's why there is a rename right now because is we don't know for sure if we're GONNA get emission day but we're applying right. We're going to follow the same process as everybody else doesn't it becomes a little more complicated because we're across multiple multiple countries but that's all right So University is a seven day cruise leaving out of San Juan Puerto Rico and November fifteenth. And we will be cruising to Aruba Bonar courtesy house. ABC Islands and Saint Martin And then returning back to San Juan so it is going to be an epic trap. Those are all amazing. SUPERFUND locations Fund sons John Scanners. You know. I think it's we just couldn't not go again right when the other well. It's it's just seeing all the pictures and hearing the stories that sounded like it. Everybody had a lot of fun. What were some of the most memorable moments you you can think of from the first one I think for me one of the most fun things was no matter where you went on the ship and the ship holds in twenty five hundred to three thousand people? We'll but we were pretty large contingent. I think we had about one hundred thirty five hundred forty people and everyone had special landlords. They were really cool and anywhere you went you could find any aggressor and it was so fast. Friendly didn't matter what faction somebody was on. It's like Oh hey there's there's an MD Espersen. Let's go get a drink together or you know gathering who's going on an excursion to get you know the the Mayan Ruins and there was a big expert group that went and looked at the Mayan Ruins together One of my favorite experiences was we actually had an agent in in Grand Cayman who set up a special excursion for us. We had three vans picked us up at the steam at the the cruise ship took us on a route that went by Oliver Missions. So if he wanted to lazy mission you horribly Lazy Mission of I'm and it just made it really easy especially since we had some mobility impaired folks. I want to make sure that anyone who was going on. The cruise can have a good time and could get their missions nations and and that was really important to me And so we took the vans went to this amazing small resort where air couple people dived. I scuba or not scoop scoop by snorkeled and then we had a great neil hanging out is a huge group. Really get to know everybody again met. Our men are local agent. Were able to really help him with OPR because everybody changed their special official location because they'd been stuck not having enough agents to review local portals so he had a flood of. I think I don't even remember. Remember something like twenty plus portals that went online because everybody helped with Puerto Review. What school so that was really cool? and kind of had a long lasting impact impact on his fingers community so lots of good staff in general just really. I met so many great people goal which is why I think everyone was happy to do it again. And even if we didn't have niantic involvement Nice Nice and even even if they don't have involvement are y'all still playing to make missions or trying to get. Yeah we're I'm doing that. Mean we have to create the missions in advance. You know. I'm I'm not super keen on on the new mission. Day Form where you have to do all the missions before you even have approval for the mission day. It's a lot of work for something that you don't have a four but we're going to do it. And then those missions will hopefully go alive one way or the other and it did work really. Well I know there was a lot of debate in some of the communities on the fact that we got special missile treatment by so Jenner being maintained in it worked extraordinarily lawsuit. NIANTIC did is everyone who wanted to have sojourner maintained had not pay five dollars that was at and that got them the special bad which was super super cool. It did not look like a cat but I just have to say can you say it wasn't a cap badge. It would imagine beautiful fact anchor together you can make a little scare medal field there you go. Nah Yeah so we have the beautiful badge and they basically did a cut off on Friday and for anyone who had purchased that in hit you know kept on Friday. They just auto increment Throughout the trip so you can see it. Increasing which was essential because there were two or three days where there was absolutely no way to hack so the fact that they came through through for us without was was great leader originally looked at. Could we have import on board. There are a couple really creative solutions for posed and at the end of the day. NIANTIC was like pet is just way you too complicated when we can write a script. That increase your sojourner. I wondered how that worked and I think that was a beautiful compromise in a nice this way to sort of put the good faith towards the agents in that. This is an aggressive aunt. We understand that people are going to have the surgery owner so having away to continue that throughout the trip was just a nice little touch it. Yeah exactly because there were a lot of people I think who wouldn't have gone if so doug wasn't maintained Tom And with with only one exception it. We didn't have any issues with it at all. And the agent who has the Accession Echo terrible about but I think there may have been a she might not have hacked Between Friday and Saturday. So we're trying to figure out what went wrong but I can't say hey that I cannot guarantee that there will be any sojourner maintenance for ingress at C.. Two we are asking right. We've proven that it worked. We are doing doing everything to apply to make official and I think it was very well received right. The interest across the global angers community was huge. And what are we doing right. What's going on like how are expect relations and overwhelmingly positive? I don't think we had any issues on board everything that Niantic says they want to promote so my hope is that we get approval. But I can't guarantee it. It seems like it's just a a good deal for nine. Antic basically doing a bunch of free press for them and at least everybody on the cruise-ship knows what increases by the time they leave probably one hundred percent. I mean we had so many questions on. What's what is the what? What are those landlords? What are you guys doing? And you know the other question that came up was What do you do with data while you're at port? That was a really frequent fashion and it was different from our. We had some European and some Japanese agents who joined us a little different for them in some cases they had to get a Sim card. But for most of the American agents They were able to get international plans like rise in. At and T. Sprint etc have seven international planet's not too expensive. It's like ten dollars a day in some cases less or you can use your existing data plan outside of the US Now what what can get a little bit. Pricey is if you choose to have Internet while you're on board the ship yourself plan will not work on board once you're I'm water And so you do need to pay for or Internet but that may not be bad either so you have an option of either. You can split a plan with a couple other agents so people figure that out pretty quick that you could get a multi device up to four devices and then just share the cost and that was at the lower level the two different Streaming speeds one may call woman. I think surfin stream and the other is just Surf and so we. Don't you know if you just want to get into telegram for the week. All you need is surf but if you WANNA be able to download photos in strain movies and you're going to need the higher end I feel like with with the the amount of brainpower that is an in ingress agents the next trip that you'll pricey like full-blown like networks popping up here a bike number one point. There was a lot of discussion about it out and actually really funny is we. We did have some Royal Caribbean employees who we went on a cruise with us so they were able to give us kind of the scoop on what was it wasn't possible within the network and what they found is that relate it didn't work very well And it's not terribly unreasonable. One of the advantages of cruising is you can sort of pre-budget or prepay for all of that stuff if you choose to and so you're not getting hit at the end of the cruise with US giant normal bill You can say okay. I'm going to pay off my crews news July. The cruises in November. I'll pay for this this month. I'll pay for MIGRA -TUNITIES next month off how people my excursions whatever it is. You WanNa do this out personal choice but it allows you to budget over a much longer period of time than maybe you could on a regular taking to get any converts any new players. I you know I don't know of anyone specifically I. I know that I talked to a couple of people who were very interested in. You know sent them to the APP and they. They didn't necessarily have Internet on the ship. So they were GonNa wait till they got ashore. But I mean I know for sure two or three people that I personally talked to who are like it. Sounds really cool. And you do this kind of adventurous stuff. And I'm like yeah increases the best. You know I I joined and I gained thirty new friends. Who like to get off the couch and go do stuff? How awesome is that house and you didn't have to lie? Say I'm playing POKEMON. Go to a actually say I'm playing egress. Yeah and I mean there's a little bit of the have you heard of Pokemon go. We'll anxious completely different. But that brings up a question but people may not be interested in our listening the group that did the portal work for Pokemon go and Harry Potter out than on because again there wasn't a portal on the ship So so that wasn't really initially but once you were on shore I mean. We had some pretty evident hokey monitors I also so Dole game in in Harry Potter. So I was able to get my Harry Potter stuff. I see you shaking your head daily. Shame Eh no shame but yeah we were able to get our our our fixed those other games while we report as well awesome so it endured Worked really well. All of the costs are are pretty reasonable. I mean there's anything from an interior cabin cabin. which if you're someone who's not gonNA spend much time in your cabin you want quiet end you know dark and you wanNA sleep really well? Interior cabin is awesome. Because it's it's super cheap. I mean we're talking less than seven hundred bucks You can go all the way up into a high end cabinet. Get a sweet or junior sweet. I mean those are absolutely amazing. They come with their own concierge. I think most of our cruisers were either an exterior Like a porthole cabin or they had balconies and balconies are are really awesome. Because you have you know about a twenty I get him out with the square footage is on guesstimate twenty square foot Balcony with it's enough for table and two chairs and you can go sit outside and enjoy your coffee or whatever Without actually having to see anybody there now. Now there's a lot of us interest in in Angra so I can appreciate that wanting to be outside but not having to people and honestly eight being in the middle of the ocean in being able to watch the stars from a balcony is pretty spectacular. Because they're a weather lights other than the ship and could you get concierge to hack for you to ask Anyway D as have other questions about the cruise. Yeah I think so. I've only been on one cruise that I actually like had to pay for stuff like I when I was a kid but My wife and I went on our honeymoon and Some of the things that people Might be confused out or or whatnot. I'm wondering maybe you can help out clarifying like And so like when you get a room. It's normally to to room kind of thing or how. How does that work to people around you? Can Dan get up to four per room if you get a special room But you know that you just have to call so we use a booking agency Cup cruises. Only they're awesome awesome and they take care of like they're the middleman between us and the ENRO- Caribbean and they really make sure that everybody has everything that they need. How does that work with like pricing? So if you've got a room that normally is to people is it still the same price for each. It's now nat There is a cost per person because your cost includes food and so forth Peru is not necessarily cheaper might be incrementally l. e. cheaper but you can't necessarily come on it and that's a good thing to bring up. I I assume they still do it. The same way but like food food is like they're twenty four seven by I mean the only thing that's changed is ruined because people were wasting facing a lot of food. They changed room service. So that you have to pay like a seven dollar room service delivery charge but that includes anything Y- he is just a single charge per delivery so anything you could possibly want order you can have delivered to your room. But that's that's that's just to prevent waste But they have a kind of a casual buffet that has open for breakfast open for launch open for snacks open for dinner owner. There's a formal dining room One of the fun things is that there is a In on this Chris Seven night cruise so there are two formal nights and and so it's optional. You don't have to eat in the formal dining room but if you enjoy dressing up and you want a chance to get swanky in address or in a suit or even Shirt Mataya I mean. It's not super super fancy there will be people there entices For the ladies we did have of course at night which was really fun. Because you know we're ingress that's what we do And the food is just amazing. So the formal dinner again. You can order anything you want. If you want three appetizers two entrees desserts. They will bring it to you and they won't even bat an eye and they might even save. Is there something else. I would just eat by itself into every single day. They they go so far out of their way to try and make you happy. I mean the staff on the ships are amazing. Manala takes his something thing is simple in a in a jelly in the comments like I attain. Hey I guess cargo and ask her go will magically appear at your table every night for the rest of the and do they do that every night. You have like a couple of meal times in your kind of set at a mealtime usually. Yes for the crews that we're going on. There are two options so you can do my time dining which is if you don't I wanna eat with the larger group You can choose to select that and then you schedule the time that you're gonNA eat There is early dining. which is I think five thirty in the late dining which is what we do at eight o'clock and that is when the majority of the cruisers will all eat together and it sounds late for people who are used to eating early? But you'd have excursions that may not get back in the advantage of of being Into formal dinner late is gives you time to change to get comfortable. You can grab a snack on your way in because remember everything is free so why not grab grab a plate at chips in a burberry. It's crazy what happens. And then you go to your formal dinner. It's a sit-down down white tablecloths. You know the appetizer entree desert again sometimes multiples of those and you get whatever you want in the really really good about accommodating special needs as well so if you're diabetic if you have a gluten intolerance lactose you know if you have serious allergies basically let chappy who is our contract cruises uses only know he'll put it in your crews profile and then we recommend that on the first day Speak to the Mayor de or to your waiter and they'll start showing you the menu for the next day and if there's nothing that you can eat don't custom make you something which I find pretty amazing. So that's the the one thing that I looking at the prices I mean it's cheaper than staying in a hotel. I mean it's it's crazy and then you get them food on top at that so it's definitely great deal and I and I know there was Timing coming up soon the really important that we need to get out or you need to Let everybody know about yes. So the way the pricing works for the cruises we you have to put in a deposit pretty far in advance to cruise in November tomorrow always the last day for the cheap deposits. Now that doesn't mean that everyone will not end up paying the same deposit which is a total of five hundred dollars per cabin But the timing for that changes so I believe I need to look it up But the the you can book at any point after Tomorrow Carl but at that point you would have to pay the full deposit a five hundred dollars up through tomorrow. It is only two hundred dollars dollars per cabinet which you know one hundred dollars per person which is a super goodell. There's a tiny chance if we get really good response That they could extend the the cheaper deposits for us. They did that last year and they've already done at once so a bunch of people see this and they're like oh my gosh we WANNA WE WANNA book They may give us more time with one hundred dollars per person deposits. Hopefully all six of our listeners will and hosted this read it in it went into our crews yet. So hopefully we'll have some folks will come back in and listen but it's important to understand that if you are booking as a single you pay double price. There is a a slight discount. Because you're booking includes use the cost of the cabin. All of your food you pay gratuities in some taxes on top of it which is not a huge increase in costs from what you we see and it is fully refundable A lot of the questions that I got last year were on you know if I see a cheaper booking online online. Can I just book that one. The answer is no because our perks onboard are determined by the number of people we have in our group and the only way to get hugh in our group is if you book through cruise only And that's because they pay for a lot of those perks of they're not getting the financials coming into them from the booking they're not can extend the perk to you. I mean it's just simple economics at sets nice since and I think one of the main questions that I had while I was actually going through and reading being a lot of the FAQ material and like somebody that has never been on a cruise before. I think one of the initial things that confuse me was looking at the the booking site site and thinking like okay. I'm I'm booking a room but how do I get the second person onto that room and it initially initially looked like both of us were going to be paying for full room cost. which now that I'm I'm hearing this? That's not necessarily the case so I'm sort of thinking like wow. That's a lot cheaper than what I assumed after reading through all the material like if anyone get apartments similar thing I guess now's the learning learning opportunity timidly so when he looked at the website it'll show the per person rate. It'll show the per cabinet rate end. So when you book as You make your initial deposit you can actually immediately at the second person. In fact if you're booking is a single you just have to add your name twice otherwise otherwise. It won't allow you to continue to book in order to fix that. You don't pay. I started to go is a single person they will remove the second set of gratuities gratuities in taxes. So you save that from you know a true double rate In order to get that accomplished you can either email cruises only once once you get your invoice easiest in what I recommend is to just call them and you can speak directly with Chappie. Who is number is on our website or you can actually speak with anybody in the customer service department? Once your booked if you haven't booked yet you definitely WanNa talk the chaffee because he'll get you into our group but really they're amazing super super helpful easiest thing to do if you can call is to call because they will get it straightened out. How many people do you think you've got so far? That's a good question before Christmas. We had and this was like two weeks before Christmas. We had fourteen cabins which is like thirtyish people but that was I mean. It's almost a month ago now amount. I don't have updated numbers so I'm expecting that will have you know quite a few more last year We spiked up to ninety eight You know within two months of initial booking. And there's naturally some attrition as people around the time of final deposit you know figure out if they really really listen. Thank you and couldn't get to the MIC. Anti only attempt to know most muted to But but yes so the other things to know if you do you need to cancel Again the advantage of going through us through Only because they are fully refundable is everything but Thirty seven dollars. Here's per person of the initial deposit is refundable. Yeah I mean it's amazing. You don't find that with a lot of the online like if you see those really good deals else they're almost always people in your Do things real quick one. So we record this on Thursdays and the sixteenth so the date is the seventeenth for the final. Okay yes so okay a little bit of wiggle around. Technically it was the sixteenth. But it's really through tomorrow south over and the other thing was you were mentioning gratuities and stuff. That was the one thing when we're on the cruise. That was like like you didn't even know about that. Except for then they had like a panel where they told you about gratuities and it was like. Oh God God we gotta get together all this money to hand out in envelopes and stuff and it sounds like that's different. They've changed at so there are different opinions Zayn gratuities in an cruise lines and you can find all kinds of debates online but at the end of the day my opinion on it is they work really hard to make you happy. And they deserve deserve every penny and at this point The cruise lines of kind of setup their wages so they depend on that Tuiti to supple what they're making from the ship. Yep so you've got two options with gratuities. It is voluntary. You can turn them off once. You're onboard the ship. If you you choose to do I recommend that no you you do have that option and some people do it. Because they want to hand out cash individually to the the people who serve them and that's fine as well you can choose to prepay your gratuities in. Its I think fourteen dollars a day per person for gratuities and so Again that's all on the web page and I can. I can double check those members but I believe that's what it is Nothing I mean compared to like the service. You're getting I think admiral. Yeah tip more than do that taxpayer. Yeah so you can you do that in. Cash is generally recommended. The two people and I've done that like I usually bring some twenties with me The BAR staff my waiters or my room steward. Someone who's really helped me out a hand them a packet with a twenty it's not necessary but again they were really hard so I like to prepay maker -tunities because again it's done. I don't have to think about it. I'm not getting a bill at the end of my crews Some people want that cash up front and you know they're gonNA invested or whatever and you know so then they pay it at the end the networks for them. Last thing you want to do is hit the slot machines too long ago. Oh God the only being another thing that people have asked about is how does on-board cash work. So you don't use cash for anything hang on board You will either create a cash account. meaning that you put down a deposit When you get on board the ship and then that's your limit mid on your your Pass or which is you know again. Probably more communist people will use a credit card Against their sets out pass and and you can set spending limits people with kids who will say this child may not spend more than twenty dollars a ticket. Yeah In that in so yeah it is important particularly. If you're you're rooming with someone who's maybe not a family member you can. Each have separate separate sets passes linked to your own individual cards awesome and we're getting close in the show so before we we hit that I did want to ask is the is that the same website people should go to for more information. Yes so its mission day at sea DOT COM Tom. We didn't change our our title. FAQ has the link to buck. There is is a telegram the best place to connect with the community. That's planning on going on English at sees is via telegram so there isn't announcements channel and all that has zero chatter because it's a very chatty bunch Then there is a telegram chat where everybody's just getting to know each other and sharing tips and tricks and all kinds of great information so I'd encourage everyone to to happen to that. I also created a forum post on English Forum. And there's a new post on the Frank Cresswell. Is that a good place for say Solo sailors to try to find someone to fill out. A cabin with telegrams programs is to do that we have as so a roomies wanted chat Well can fill out the spreadsheet and try and find someone to run with. Okay great and we'll make sure we get these links from you so we can put them in the show notes and there's tons more questions so hopefully we can get you back on the show and a few months or something and we talk about. Maybe getting some updates for me when you get a chance just that we can play on shows in between then and my has questions. Please send them to us. Go ask in. The telegram is well. I volunteer due to go as a reporter for agent please livestream academy account like yeah just the corporate card use the corner and I did. We did have some comments in chat that I want to throw out their tonnage. Eight nine hundred eighty nine inside so much fun in and also said drinking WIFI package was a great deal. So look into those Jelly jellied said boardgames room was superman on the cruise. So you mentioned that. So that's that's just like an extra bonus onus more games more fun on the time and also said that mission date see cocktail hour was superb. Wait afraid cocktail. Tell our for everybody so we had enough people going that that was one of the parts in his able to negotiate so there was a meet and greet on the Basically the second day that we were let's see and had everybody together free like I mean they were coming fast and furious so there was no shortage boosts and and besides all that all the stuff that you're putting together and The group's putting together like cruises are notorious for all the like think almost like Broadway shows and and Comedians and magicians and all this crazy stuff. No telling what we'll be on on this one yet. I'm sure that probably doesn't get plan plan for a while but it's just so much more to do as well as excursions and other places have an ice skating. Rink are less ship at an ice skating wrangle. There were English irs at sea ice skating which is pretty amazing. Don't forgive Mitch and you can't play ingress on this whole the unique loan like someone said. Hey for you know under a grand you can get. How many Niks like well worth it? So so many unique and You know again. Unique there are people we did special banners so not only did we have the mission day of see banners but One of the agents who went along created connecting banners for people to have six in each port. So yeah. We'll we'll probably do the same thing next time as well. Aw great anymore last questions before we go out anything else you wanted to say. No thank you so much for having me and and I encourage the questions and hope people will join us. It really is a great time and again even if you join after the early deposit you can still balk really up until until the ship leafs although encourages before the pocket book would you do it the day before. Yes so go get those deposits right now right when you're hearing thank you so much for joining us on the show and we'll get more questions at our we'll have some of the and hopefully we'll get on and Thanks everybody for listening for watching and we'll see you next week and then they get to talk about the novel Lama. But that'll be next time. The passcode this week is A. M. D. A. S. TO A. Thanks again. Everyone mm-hmm

get everyone together at he ate just on our own so we had to flip flip and then we ended like then put on a couple of extra resonator to get it up to get him all three up to we'd like call sit sit rip sit back and we will also be talking about some minecraft gender anything but as I was leaving work I noticed a blue agent waiting and with the eighty s and then then we jarvis them again because we only had like six people so we couldn't make it up but I don't understand why we did this but after we left work like we were done with it and it's a Friday like none of us are going to be there for the weekend that kind of like do I should I feel bad it was just fun it was just to be funny I dunno he came back later and got it anyway king and so we got away with it and then one of the agents he was like I got an extra fancy throughout so we double fracture it's green they gotta make a blue that's just how it works that's how it works so they designed again yeah so I don't know I don't question it talking cock like I I don't I don't know if anyone else does like in my little group like I don't think we do check blowing them up and instead of waiting in flipping them or anything so they just don't want you to have the right I don't know completely deleting stuff 'cause we're getting like infraction pursers and stuff ah no I can't really think of any time we like would talk to them I don't think they would talk back to us anyway so I talked as long as they're it seems logical that it was green they're making a blue or the any trashed all of a sudden I just pull up my scanner I start recharging because I act portals were starting to come down and then my coworkers like but the game right it was just like and they must be full of gear because they're just in blue sometimes when it's like about like talking about like missions and updating things and stuff like that don't trash talk in it because it's too hard with yeah I should look at occasionally I'll like call one of them just because they need to check their profile hoping that's about it sarcasm or you know that tone is so hard to read into text especially if you don't know that person and we don't know most of them so it's like on slack and they're like we're returning to like we just kept recharging and like I don't eat we didn't need it like I don't know why we did today we've had some New People here who when you blow up their portals they start trash talking eating like get ever it no taxed for somebody to take it seriously or not get the fun behind it and then you're going to make someone mad like just as one person to not get mission in an area around where I normally play and I was just blowing up stuff and the mission you had to I think it's like you get just the potential there for to go to bed blood is just too high I don't think it's smart to trash talk in like trash talk I loved we got through the whole all three and no one came to blow up on you're working on my own because I thought for sure like the three worlds going up blue and then go into green feel like all these portals and it's it's it's when you have come in they're blowing up the stuff it makes it difficult or impossible and so they said something yeah ooh wouldn't okay last was like the week before when they did the one point five AP window play too and we just kind of both saw this space how bad you have to feel about that you don't you don't I mean that's the game it's like saying you know football teams like and like you said it's like you may be talking with someone that you like I I there was one time where one of the resistance apparently was trying to do ended all Mayfield's I felt bad 'cause like I I feel like I ruined their set like this was my like two hour window to play and it was probably there too so like nothing here. AP Desert anchoring like a mile from where I was so they were like way out on the other side already so look it up in the news and I'm like not doing much at all because you're coming to town this weekend and I don't want to do anything I want everything everything to ghost so that whatever you drive past you can catch your so you get a bunch of sweet niks I like Niks Yeah during the anomaly or whatever when it was in Instagram uh-huh and then we had the AP and I felt bad because like I would oh yeah so I don't intend to be turn but it's part of the game I guess I don't know so I did a couple of missions and like around where I am it could be like clear as a bell and or there could just be like S- cutting everywhere I think you're dying yeah so anyway they're taking care of that side and then I'll take care of this side and then we'll win another cycle so we're going for winning every cycle the we'll have to just see what's going on day how short short week Sir it was short but I did get I left it should feel bad about that well let him get his AP and then feel bad about that it seems redundant kind of kinds of because of it is yeah it's like us the teamwork makes the stream more right and so I had fun doing that in the cool thing was I went to garage sales with with my wife out I figured out the feeling I wanted to do so I headed out all of a sudden like Bluefield or popping over and to go make some fields this weekend there's a there's a new player in town who's who's keeping the score pretty scored a touchdown I feel bad because you know we beat them or well if you know if that feels going up not news axiom space I needed going in destroying there's unfortunately the player that that normally takes care of that side was out of town I don't know if I should mention that they're back so Guinea girl and she went with me and it was kind of funny I actually needed her at some point because I ran out of like oh so I need to go out and you know make some immu unfortunately they like apparently a lot on the other side of town from me so it's like Thursday for that and L. One three three one x van thing and it's free you know you just gotta read it says here like I only had two things to make it all clear and I looked at my Intel on my phone just opened up Intel and they were and so is route the keys on the ground and she's picking him up and shown how to do it and so she throws it and she got a badge for doing it can you throw a you know a five on she's only little five so I started let her put her on first and then I would come back and like you know stuff over her ones and here make sure we get every single one in so far were there I mean off some accounts ahead so there's been a couple of close calls but for me to go over there and drop it it's going to take me a long time whereas I rather to go out and just get the m you gain and beat them that way you know it's one of those things if I am counting my blessings because I know there's people out there who don't get that level of support even glad to make at least for now and we'll have to make at least one field together even if it's a mini up you never know Alan Blah Blah Blah Blah and it's like I'm on so we just Chat Oh candidate g plus Dr Cast and I said something back sarcasm joking with them and we always we kinda talk anyway and then someone else though chimes in is like why are you such a counting run into this at all but then you just sill visual thing you just clip only ones so that was a lot of fun I think she could care less that she got about how that goes my husband's the same as like care breasts so I'm not pushing it's it is what it is right maybe maybe Harry Potter will bring it hey I need you to help me farm skis and I will read this thing with you he's like any to help me blow up this gym no problem you're like except for remember which one she got that th the layers are around twenty five thirty k. a. p. so I think that's one of the level resonate and the links are throwing long enough that I couldn't do it on like a portal you know love Portland it needs to and so it'd be like the teamwork has worked quite teamwork that's right that's why I say that dreamworks teamwork makes the teamwork just all that other crap because I feel like it's probably saving bandwidth somewhere and I'm good with that but if I can force INC to like make me not cry a little bit on the Oh that's that was the thing I don't even know if i WanNa have you seen where your ap just stops I was GONNA have a cow but if you close the APP and then restart the APP you'll have the numbers are correct like update but it doesn't always update in real time as you're going along so that is and I think some that's probably pretty good because inside yeah the one day made like this weird layer thing like nineteen field for one over here it's not updating wants available at the moment so it's just like you can't throw because there's no links and I shouldn't be showing these keys but I am anyway so just refresh and you'll see about yeah and that helped out in one of the portals like hey why don't you throw this field 'cause I'd already Senate the baseline and we were just going straight up this mine just just though and everything didn't get your badge for one three three and a little miffed so next time he says thing sir down and restarting the at because every time you start throwing that many fields that gets a little gets a little confused sometimes Mr and says message geometry to register he's now completely free and he'll be so far you know like I wanted to well I read yesterd- our son for the van for out well he he's playing pokemon go so does he built go out it helps because they're all the same like locations and then you can treat new it then it'll say then it'll show that like you have no keys available for throwing but anyway I don't know if I'm saying that very clear but you know what I mean I view interesting yeah because like the APP knows you shouldn't throw anymore but it doesn't just have a thing to say like oh you're done now you have to kind of close out of that horrible and then when you go in originally you had more options maybe you had like twelve or thirteen keys you could have thrown to

today's podcast is brought to you yes you need one more I have another person on the fence so there's some coming up soon I'm pretty me I thought we were GonNa do you I well let's see I got my Platt Trekker over one hundred and eighty thousand titles to choose from for your Iphone Android kindle lower MP three player and now welcome to the mm-hmm and situation report but We we've had some things we've done I guess over the past week and a half and I'm getting worried about you agent academy absurd number fifty nine recorded on June third two thousand nine gene I'm agent Gooney Guy and I'm agents only belly and welcome to a new show and I'm already clicking on things that is really cool he liked y'all he thought funny and so anyway what does you've been up to so close to those like instigates I'm like Oh so you you in six or seven people I do it automatically try it wasn't good try there's a lot of good tries fast yeah Yup yeah so I have a contest each week about like whoever gets the most Ip for that week get like the top three or hover many of the things I bought get the prizes so that's how that works yeah everybody kind of gets people noticing like hey what are they doing so for Saturday for June for good reasons it was my besties baby cue which sounds like APP store I can just click it right yeah you can and you don't want to bother someone who's like like getting someone to the point where they're gonNA download the game it's a baby barbecue but babies it's not that we're barbecuing babies it's that instead explain to a new person like okay yeah you can download the download the game use the email you and click that from your phone and then download it from their ears I get credit and they're always like but I consider it here and I'm happy with that like I don't like I don't care that's fine so let's see I missed out it's now at the same time yeah and it was really great except There was a horrendous like thunder storm that blew through and so I had a lot of good I try things out and we'll be talking about that today during the show during news times you know because it's awesome so sign it is my gotTa Mitchell he's yeah I walk around and put them on their desks so if they're not at their desk they just come back to the surprise under does so it's Kinda cool and go through that twenty minutes to to`real you already don't WanNa lose them it's like did go to First Saturday in and it was in Birmingham Alabama couple hour and a half away from where I am at that we'll get to that but yeah I'm sitting there I'm getting ready to eat my my Pulled Pork Sandwich and the wind comes through having a baby shower she wanted to have a barbecue their friends because she's one of those people she's like most of my friends are like guys and girls and so traditional unregister than show your stats and do all this stuff and that's really just for the people putting on the event those don't really we get on recruiter badge action for any of the zero because the way the recruiter badges setup is not good because it's so hot the all the decorations and Steph were up for like maybe twenty minutes before like thunder storm and hail and we didn't see the hell but it was a round people driving we're just like she's like that's like half my friends can't let's just have a barbecue do anything other than that because they just not true big total so anyway I went and I said Hi to some folks but then I just and met few agents but I just so I'm doing a little test experiment on my own because there's always oh and my entire cup of Dr Pepper goes right into my food and then the wind picks up the canopy that were sitting at and it just no no not that day do you want to get to your week and sure talk about you can get to that stuff sure so I'll tell you about it then you tell me if I should later okay you can be my the angel on my shoulder because right now we've got the act the the first senator portal when it went live and then I went and waited for time and went and did my stuff and I I didn't actually the last episode of show God see you in person that was Kinda cool which is the first time into the to the barbecue still like those hail apparently y'all just have thunderstorms on Saturdays apparently right because questions about how they p works or whatever I it seems pretty simple and I just wanted to test it because there's always this will you gotta sign up and that's where we're clear about yeah so I'm sorry for anyone watching live hopefully it will clear up but are recorded I guess they recorded one is coming through fine it is the stream I see it's like kind of slide and there there are some extenuating circumstances on why and I don't even know if I want to get into it we'll do that maybe later anyway it was a mess so I was kind of like I heard for Saturday people because it was local obviously they got hit pretty hard ah or you go to the dollar store and buy bet effort like when they show up in your office they got some hail and stuff too but it blew over about twenty minutes of crazy rain and then flew over and everything's fine but lick okay I heard a rumor that there's massive video leg Oh yeah live chat John say yeah and so at the anomaly you made you gave me all these really cool buttons they recall what is reporting like I guess whole baby barbecues stories ruined the stream I don't know the might they'll have to watch it live like submit my scores because I I didn't even want to be on the board like I just wanted to go get my triple a. p. and at the anomaly so I'm not so used to like big city traffic and when my son component up to this darth out of the car well the box that it was in so I didn't get any of the swag like I have a full bags barrier it's just I just I'd rather not throw up the obstacles I got my two credit credit for two so the badge unlocked at least maybe it's the new the new stream sugar to the old one you can give it a try I don't see chat that does some weird stuff I don't know why any of that would ask what the video that we will look into it and hopefully fixing time but this is live so we must continue the show show and Pixel early so we're not dropping any frame so I don't know I blame the streaming service window in the middle of the city also only it felt like Oh my God we got to 'cause there's all these guys around the car waiting to get the keys to like take the car or like trying to get the and so a lot of people buttons there okay so they were used and I still have some yeah sway and didn't get that out like none of it like it was just mass chaos and it's completely my fault and I'm sorry and we'll be a recorded version which kind of sucks I'm sorry the Audio Spine so that's good awesome yes would have been awesome did you not make it to the anomaly so genetic see people they're not people auto auto field awesome field awesome field right can tell a lot of people were like hey played stupid game of life sorry to everybody who was there who didn't get any buttons like all I had were just like my own cards that I didn't even have the new cars I was being fair I bought equal numbers I was like yeah this is GonNa be good just give them out give them away and it would have been Steph I kept some of it when I have I put him on my button wall I don't know even be seen here I mean only put the green ones on here but there's blue versions I love like the drift happens Dan Field I was passed and I'm just like the guys that are crossing relied just met like four minutes earlier he just reaches up like up and said Hi to me you're supposed to get a card special for Amazon prime hit me up on telegram just search for coming second but and for Saturday I made sure I took it all their users cross faction too and I put out all the buttons F. Buttons for both factions to give out I printed out so me any blue ones I made resistance ones because ebbs it with the leg of it why by like Oh my Gosh you look at Europe thing would have ended up in the street CBS for like the nominally all this stuff that we print it out and did you did so much and it was so awesome but we'll go back to the inning experience but the we had a flesh storm locally here in Michigan and it was only a five minute story thank you anyway so so backtracking a little damn and interrupt you real your kids. DT F- means down to field but you don't want them going to school and saying half and so everyone came in we lost power for like the entire anomaly so I was on for like an hour less power for ever and to like talk to us and we were learning it wasn't set a perfectly but we were kind of like going with it you know Neil back to you with an apology letter you come away more stuff than I do may may not be for a while and I have I had planned to to livestream the whole thing like start half an hour before it went you head and recruit on and everything and you had a couple of people lined up buckets buckets buckets six like lions went down just a half a mile away not even a mile away half a mile away and import stuff around on the streets of Chicago where do you still would like to learn how is your as as we were getting things so I didn't have other layouts I could've had if I you know we had kind of understood the structure a little better but like it was going to be alert lamb this like during the numbers now I didn't 'cause like the loss but it just felt like it because we're so close it's just like if I could have done just a little bit more and if I hadn't been live streaming and had been out there doing you know we weren't live streaming 'cause I couldn't live stream turn your anomaly right it was a good there's we lost by so folks about that were embedded reporter saying you know hey you know get get your pictures ready so that you can actually you know play in and you know talk with with some folks in the building until some stuff so we got to interview Andrew Crew for just a few minutes but that was taking pictures you so yeah and and they were talking to little like less than four points that because I was livestream Alana there's like this whole thought after like I was just beating myself up for like the and we are generating money not equipment type of money so a Dui J. so I already sent him on but just hit me up on there I won't get you your card for their and I apologize the anime itself so there was that and I got see a bunch of people in ran around and I think I got some pictures a more professional traveling podcast but it takes equipment and equipment takes money I I've actually changed my name on there to guy so you can find me and I don't send you a picture of the card and I know I don't know everyone's name and telegram I knew Hominid plans to this anomaly to like give things away and to just be like on the scene and keeping people today and being a part of things like I wasn't going it really is our funds for instead of Nice traveling equipment next time will invest in no no I know but we've got a little Batman animation goes there and it could be the new re- stream chat they have a new system of that I wouldn't have been able to get if I just been with my team the whole time unfortunately my team didn't was not aware like they knew as an anomaly for the whole time before and I think he underestimated like how much walking and son there is and I was back for the results of the family like just came on okay jumping on by then I mean the mic right here so he just said well let's just do this and he just threw his arm around me and started talking right there next to the mic so we would like to do so the other thing that really sucked so I the Chicago enlightened sold some posters early on because they were awesome and the buttons I dunno runs it just for the course because we had we had got the machine that keeps you breathing when you came to see me so if that's not a priority for you I just never surprised ever by any if you saw how I was set up but it was just my phone with my headset mic that was dangling from my ear and so I'm like we're GONNA have to like this like hamlet bag full of like your water for the day and like supplies and all this stuff so it's like I wouldn't have been able to really carry ah crap have no questions ready for you but let's do it you know and so we hopped on train wreck of that but he's always great because it well this is one of the things that I wasn't able to bring out the day that we were going and shooting stuff because of so it's like when we were at the end he was just beat and we had planned to like go out after the anomaly hanging out in Chicago and he was just you know his feet just equipment and I couldn't really like Okay Carrie this poster to around with us as well and keep track of it when I've got everything else anyway aw a lot of them are puns on swears so like you can't give in to your kids but because otherwise you like what does af mean here like a traveling evenly the traveling equipment box and your car will it just the whole like you're trying to do something for the anomaly as well as do this before the nominee which was super generous of him to step on camera because I was just asking hey sometime maybe after whenever he's like all right now we're like he was getting some blisters and I was like okay let's let's go back and deal with the blisters and see how you're feeling and then we just like conked out a reporter but they thought I was going to be with them the whole time when I think so there's some miscommunication 'cause you know I'd play the stream from the START I don't know what the answer is perhaps if I could have gone with I would have just had a table at the location and could have that's what happens just lose track of everything you did good it's a lot it's a lot I yeah I don't know so thank you do Jay it was great meeting you out there and yeah cameraman Women Camera I think we could do it with three I think we could but yeah yeah so hopefully but you keep dropping out so I'm I need to make sure myself Internet next time let's see we You know kind of I get people excited about the anomaly and I got one and I took it to Chicago to get everybody to sign it left it in the hotel room so it sitting in Chicago still with the few people I got to sign it in the first place so that's great we have money we make that go in a box in Brent's garage apparently I'm happy your son made at home with you and so is my wife she's very happy that was the one thing I had to worry about it's made me like if I do not take codes that were like badges for our Website Academy podcast Dot Com and the image on it is so apparently I need someone to just check all the gear keep me on track I'm not surprised you yeah we went to that the winter one in Michigan the Ann Arbor Epsilon and gave out cool on stuff from there I don't know but I I couldn't manage to go with we need team we need a team like producers roundly whitman like I would need someone else and I had my son with me out some stuff but he like he he hasn't been to a hey agents I think this is ag guy here in Chicago with agent Jay how're you doing doing dream we made of Detroit and it has tons of portals just and they're all along the river so like it's at a park so it's deep from him as well trying to think what else is going on now one three three one right do we J. or do we want to wait for sit some other segment I'm sure all right for your team 'cause the other teams like GonNa leave it you did their work awesome staff from t s morpheus coming up got to talk with data from Tsa Morpheus at the anomaly have something to play location they don't micro field the area typically what they do is they're throwing stuff to another city like big multi-layered field a water tower in the city where we didn't get to see because it's not we didn't actually meet where the water tower is so if you micro field area or the crazy links in the area you're gonNA jam up the works quite a bit to the park has hours you can't be there and stuff so it's kind of like a good strategic location for things are not giving away anything everyone mckim take him to wind at which is like Dhoti this it's why not this area on the Detroit River and I got to meet a bunch of folks saw do Jay and Simon says to we actually have a plate now but I got a little man on the street anxious kind of good because you have to get out of your car and walked to them and so it's a hindrance to some people that you know they don't like to get an ordered sixteen it's it's all good actually they the other place you'd like to the mall for the kill all things pretty similar and I may be having Internet issues I don't know I dropped the the stream and just put it back on just on twitch not using extreme it seems to be working better for folks so it's a good place to throw fields from but when people throw field Portland Portal's together and I always thought some fields I mean you were telling me not to because it was a bad place to be throwing fields but I don't listen well it's really Chicago traffic now we're just GONNA have to walk through Scott Traffic the nice thing is afraid today WanNa make for an interesting Ali oh that'd be fun so you prepare Eh group that it impacted were some of the people we met at the van event table next to us it was them they were really nice your field a group what would you call that your friends your friends I find it so difficult to just walk to say so who are you you know like uh-huh so yeah he just Kinda gave them a heads up like don't do links here because I'm not sure what fielding plans and actually if you like it that's fantastic but I don't WanNa like go up to people and then have them go go away podcast after you but it's nice it helps it's awesome to have yeah so that I was gonNA show it to you but we ran out of time but our makerfield yeah we did and we're prepared resistance plan is that we'd be good our dot Com list in acute care we probably got like eight of them just GonNa use Oh easy supportive and very positive and it's great is a really good crew really get crew which is going to have those it wasn't that many and I messaged the local players that would have been impacted and they are really they're like that's fine you have to have an RSS and you have to be on itunes and you have to be on Google play and you have to be on spotify and stuff like that really nice through budget Janke links what was going to say speaking of all of the people I met were were really nicely great for that I I didn't actually get to meet a lot of people at the van event because I I mean we only met the table next because they were like hey who are you offloaded lou well good luck and thanks for chat with everybody I everybody ask come over and get it we are pleased come if you WANNA I don't WanNa like go force it on people yeah and then I feel like a total like I can't really get mad at you for not giving out stuff because I have trouble giving us up to because I'm like do you still removed podcast nine and they they took care of it with their Ada's 'cause I'm Ada poor I'm sorry that's no you weren't sorry for this are all the people all May co-worker players but they're my friends too so yeah get along yet they're awesome oh come up and I don't have that many eighty s so say look just growing throw no no like that I feel like they're going to be like no that's why I like the idea of the table so you can set the table the agent Academy podcast elect purchase the dewalt atomic family powers only at the home depot poor saving more doing see store for details. US only that's my husband so I looked down and I'm seeing leaks discuss let's so ninety s yeah every everybody has a podcast like I know but there's is on facebook only it's not really a podcast because it's not ours chest feed a youtube channel that's totally that's that's a thing that's fantastic you're not a cast none about gassed that's right don't listen podcasting you're a facebook live show and that's fine facebook live show or home depot more saving more doing see store for details U._S. only my one friend we we were sitting there and you had to throw a link but we couldn't keep the van long enough to like with fully resonator I should have like seven or eight and so I don't you know I don't know if it's worth going hey ethan ah can you check your records admissions that are only available at the van if you've never been to one I didn't know this and so on redacted I don't know why a couple of weeks it may then badge 'cause like I was there in the hacked it up but yeah I'm not so sure album we got the badge sooner because the new co worker that's playing he just started playing that day so we had him register for the van event that day and this is what we always do be fun 'cause I had a great time that'd be really fun pizza in being and there's the else did you say I want my van bad yet but I've heard it takes a couple of weeks ends and then besides that I went to to other vans or three now anyway I have to on my scanner showing up when works I think there may be an issue because I mean I've been to everyone with an anomaly this so fi I went to find monopolies and I went to five woody you know so that was kind of like Oh this would be so fun we started playing that Dan then we like through all that atom we're like yeah yeah 'cause that's that's hard because a lot of people showed up for that in like I don't know there some people like travel pretty far to get to those so you'd think you it's hard veggie unlocked to begin with for people so it was kind of it was kind of once you click on the van that because the van is a portal once you click on the portal it shows up in the menu there missions and so you can click on me one of them like done and we were it was kind of fun because she kinda competitive too so like once we high five and then and then the missions pop up and so I had already been like hacking and throwing Leeson blowing stuff up and that didn't realize that was for emission has just like he showed up and hacked it so I thought it'd just be hilarious if the van badge was the first bad you ever got like no I haven't okay Sanada your candidate and he's like what is this do they do this every weekend in the hard-won fielding off of and I didn't even try that one I I wins and see what missions are available from the Van Portal if you're in prime there's just this little icon down like once you click on the portal there's little icon in the corner and you dom and then some others mission so then is trying to get the mission done and so me in aide total jerk senators also oftentimes speaking of awesome I gotta fix that anyway so we're GonNa do the situation report yeah we're going to do that thing I forget you can't hear that it's less than four points that's hard it's difficult oh yeah that uh-huh how about we do a little bit of this says it's it's a situation report yeah there was a thing there and it's the thing so avenue on prime goes through the resistance his points that make that entire round unimportant and resistance one all of that so so what have like the whole strategy I think it's been it's been made its way around the Internet webs now but if you know so yeah enlighten were in the lead for the entire thing at Oh and here's the they had these buses tour buses available resistance and they were really smart and what they did was they would have a team the teams get thing else going even then you've got a battle over that one I mean that's the most important category in my opinion is elite just super organized and getting those unique hack points was crucial yeah yeah that's what it came down to on this is strategically and take them around the city to do the unique tax and then they would come back from the tour get off put new team on and they rotated them just grew and like throw the link so we were like oh my gosh so are yelling at all the other people at our table like where are they leave the sixty five points goes to whoever won that category and zero points to the other one is huge like if you think every and they should be prepared to even if it didn't go ahead of us or whatever they're gonna get something close and it's going to be you know even battle you know that's where the points all they've gotta do is how have one measurement with some points and that was going to be half and half sort of sixty five zero you know the rash should be even if you're getting ahead and we knew they had a Darshana Lynn so how they did the scoring on and so yeah it all came down to that and it was it was a good strategy I know there's some people who are upset at the strategy the capture battles you knew there was going to be at least one phase where they should be ready to try to cap as much as they can lind's it's GonNa wipe everything idea of like hey let's get you know bands like these party buses and get everybody around the thing and basically it was like it's hats off and then with four points so so rough so there's a new now that's GonNa take too much organization was like okay you know so it's not like we couldn't have done the same thing is enlightened and so it's the players from both sides went to Thailand right and do the secret mission yeah and then whoever won that a tube comment or something in our community somewhere someone was just going off about how why did they send such and such the team because Eh but let the rules everyone knew at the scoring was an advance yep and it's not like like I actually proffered this same yeah if if that was and then colon two one colon which was this complete complete mystery to me it was like the secret mission and that's a video out that's out now so check that out kind of goes from what they had to go through and it's funny because I don't remember a US so you know they're basically saying the enlightened wanted you know early on and I was like why did they have some like inside knowledge or something or did I just miss him news doing something so appointed ended up being you know five to six on there which is weird like it was funny that at the end it turned out the other way and I was just looking on reddit today for some news and I saw a link there about apparently there is an enlightened member that was removed from the event because they're causing a Ruckus it was hard it was terrible yeah it was a very close race I believe if if just looking at the videos it seemed like it was like you know island I heard it was pretty brutal condition yet that was talking about right the teams everyone is just like it's senate behind or so maybe maybe not maybe that was the editing that showed that congrats to all got to go and I didn't see I guess you know I guess they're not gonNA WANNA blast that it just seemed odd teamwork job resistance for winning another one there have been yeah grads and like you said the premiums shown in Chicago this was were they actually told us to quit streaming and so we had streaming at this point and then he had to turn it off actually they premiered it on youtube like so it was like eight o'clock or whenever and so there is a bunch of people in chat watching it live they had industry this well I can just talk guests while there's a blank screen news came out today what's this stuff you're talking about community stuff oh yeah there's a new community from coming later remark whatever side you're on you got to be there and and try to stay positive and it's easy for me to say because I wasn't in one hundred degree weather relation and for OPR questions and things like that but that doesn't exist anymore so our next week so as most people know ingress head formerly been using Google plus pages for communicate and things like that and so that will be doing later next week and it will be somewhat of a Beta ish they have developed their own social platform so that people can connect with other agents and have okay our support there would be content here and we were nice I mean we probably kid's neck bone the rules in there we're nice in that sh type of program because they do want feedback from players on how to improve it so don't expect it to be the final prep product when it launches they will want your walk out the door maybe we don't want you there anyway attitude so we also ah feedback exit they know what's needed from the community so how `bout how `bout we don't all just like rush in and just say except so that's most of the news but but while we're here I didn't want to go ahead and play the other videos we got at Amazon prime and we were lucky enough that morphine yes cintas in a video and a few minutes so setback get popcorn this is from t s morpheus and a little bit about who the learn what they do the Anti Hey hold up Mary yeah right let's be they want feedback what's wrong but just sucks ah yes thank you the color of that we all from Ti morpheus and they all worked together to get the information to us so hopefully we're talking about having more so that's awesome yeah thanks for sending that in I believe pie synthetic in to US agent pie I try we had swimming going and we're like Oh cool content we're GONNA and of course of course why would we al-Qaeda storyteller their stories for ages on him in the process of we're trying to we're trying to masses many artifacts as possible to in order to further oh theta he was there near the in there I talked to him for a minute at the anomaly I wanna go out and play that too into Japan's minuted portal network over yes marcus more segments from them if they want to do more lor and things like that that would love to get on the show and also again I gather together to ask for count this is data from some of our marriage it sounds very mysterious but it's very interesting this is interesting impact in that drops caution China Jews and to me all right Sir shouldn't be echoing now but that was great because there's so much going around us and yeah well you got to draw missions on some eight is it what it's it's funny you should say want and Julia shows the VAT it's not going to do this in our experience that we have and our home will were doing where gathering story he he got some information out there so thank you ds Morpheus and whoever you are whole multi-layered field with two anchors and spine I prefer to capture anchor a on one day anchor be two days later and finally capturing the spine and throwing the layers two days after capturing anchor is you're throwing layers from the spine make sure you link the spine portals on enlightened here's a little farming trick for all you agents going through the academy the Agent Academy this tip involves throwing a simple Oakland on tonight so we have a call in let's start with the monkey felt agent monkey here of the two old and run agents you mean and then I found eh we had our accent an army we all these years throw layers to the spine from anchor finally two days later despite what decay allowing you to re throw the whole field again this really only works in uncontested areas where you have to wait for the fields to decay before you can re throw them Tucson resistance please step it up the hall road taking risks and being say on Wall Street sway you can throw the field three times a week instead of only once here a few disclaimers this strategy hey I allowing you to re throw layers to the spine from anchor don't forget to throw the baseline I two days later anchor be would decay allowing you to apparently I thought that when I when I listen to the show okay you listen to the show now janker remember this strategy works best for farming AP NOT MU. I've been using it for two weeks now in its working wonder fleet now I'm

Welcome back uh-huh That's interesting yeah yeah interesting stuff I make problems happen oh fix it in post per game so I'm trying to think this week I really looking at all the new stuff and did a little bit of linking and that's about it there was really no acting audible get a free audiobook download and set he day free trial at www dot audible trial dot com slash agent academy I did some linking I still think I got my ap like roughly two hundred and fifty years so I think I don't I can't because that google she is locked into a a team folder and it's on a completely different Jimmy Account over one hundred and eighty thousand titles to choose from for Your Iphone Android kindle lower MP three player and now welcome to the Blake updating at once a week who has time for that right update when I edit the video but then I had hi this is Andrew Crew the global community manager for Niantic labs and you're listening to the Agent Academy podcast today's podcast is brought to you same pod because that's exactly where the same level well I'm a little more lazy than I don't think so in multiple competitions I wonder if you can just put like a formula the pulls it from the other sheet automatically I did get some info from some friends who apparently there was a big band wave that went through today take care of this and making problems I'll I'll fix that you save lives too though eighteen I'm agent Gooney guy I made it totally by shut off the inter- there early 'cause I forgot to put in a new one that actually had the episode number and it's all wrong city and our cell so I wasn't having to like go out and defender were make sure we had fields that sort of thing number I put my stuff oh I have to add minded that one yeah he do I keep track of mine on another one and ultimately sheets well here like digging fire pits and crap I do I'd have to do myself but I was lazy this week because work I'm calling work and just just I'm like right around one million until level fifteen so that'd be good teams the last week it would change that to not have anything anymore makes too much work every week oh my gosh right awesome to be so cool and then do the same thing like the next week but thank God for what they do I'm not doing that we're like ap last week there we go good respectable I got six hundred forty one thousand last week I'm getting worried about you agent Academy of Soda Number Sixty recorded on June twelfth two thousand nine remember to update it before the show and I'm busy updated yeah yeah yes I would do that exactly like once as well like thinking this is so you're going to catch up you're going to pass me I cannot catch up though because it's your total your total is you're already for for having no proof of wrongdoing it wasn't that he like didn't do anything wrong that wasn't his claim is going you are on a local portal from your visit so I can just pull yup and keep tabs on you and you got two hundred and eighty two thousand yeah so what about you I saw stuff here I got the numbers because I keep tabs on you because it's like the kids ranged from think fifth grade to eighth grades like they're at an amusement park at thirty six million almost there's no way I'm at twenty I'm almost at twenty three million so what I am hey we're going to talk about that in sip though but I have some information about that I saw a game twitter complaining that he got and do stuff because every single ride is a is a thing that's helpful and was it all neutral when he got agents on Portal's already I don't know if they're from the day before or if they were there earlier than me and the day I'm not sure and then arnold and that's a big deal I am less than six hundred cliff heck points from my plot known translator the next day and I'll take him back to the next day so I mean it's a high seems like one English player plays every day so there's nothing like going to a park alone like so we got these there's a there's a park near go to the park and as a family well there was like some weird stipulations that you had to go pick up your passes by certain date to get like free parking pass and like these other a lot of family my mom and dad my brother all his kids you know me and my husband and kiss wasn't like an engrossing event so it's not too hard to get and then I went to Cedar Point which is an amusement park in Ohio and I was with a family like and you can just do what you want so every once in a while I'll sneak down there by myself and and do some some fun over there let's call but okay that's all they can't right that's the explanation that's needed so I sit there and like especially when you're in line you just sit there but I'm not badge locked but still I just WanNa get it so try and get that done I want to get that done before next week I'm sure six hundred not yeah ah I have a couple that I'm just keeping for nostalgic purposes just like Oh cool and this you know do you have he's and it just turned out no one else wanted to go or could go or whatever so I went down by myself to get it and went to the park that day take your put down on a sheet somewhere like okay we were correct that one when was the correct one noted stakes for adding us so we noticed it they didn't do anything wrong not you can't prove right so you kind of you kind of implicated yourself a little bit wrote a link I I was I wasn't a dink through the link in I was really surprised at went because it was like really far away no proof of Ron may or may not have done and you can't prove it shouldn't you say that's awesome yeah if like dreams of making a big field from some keys I got but is completely data's not a clear path he I don't know if I could find it probably says Michigan something like I have King King Triton Statue and under the journey Gotcha one from there any good ones where we were though but I don't know you could just make her crazy linked to it I wonder if my memory's capsule is the dark one I guess that's black that's awesome I I should I give you the water tower one so you could have it it's like a six flags thing and it's like a couple years ago we got these passes because they were like a big sale like ooh this'll be fun we'll do this like all summer and that was a big little mermaid fan it's the thing I grew up in that time and Aladdin so I can't wait to see the new and I think I rode like one ride but I was just interesting the whole time and it was so much fun just like in the park and I was pretty much all by myself like no one else was in there it's definitely not something I could drive in clear right right or even hey can't go in there and light that portal up for me her like just those special moments that like now I haven't been that captain can pull them open and look at them a hearing good things about it and this is one of my favorites so there's a show called fresh off the boat and the dude owns cattlemen's steakhouse ranch in I was driving home from Austin nominally and just happened to pass by this cattlemen's steakhouse it's like the like anytime I do up now I keep a key from one of the portals in the anomaly grab it or a family trip a memory like I have a key camp that's just memories do my my red locker is for memories I have Wrigley Field from Chicago I didn't get a lot done but I got enough Newport attack that I got my gold explorer edge knocked out I wanted to do missions know Aig do missions with family like kid it doesn't really have a color I think it's interesting we should do a thing it's like what's your favorite key year our memory yeah there's no way you can do so do they know you playing grants do they even know what it is now I mean there's they they're playing a game often we're actually making fields office so in the working intentional yeah but crucial APP asking everybody out there doing stuffs it's kind of cool hear those stories I definitely do that with pokemon go presence like I try to get ones that so you know I do have a few people that I got like I'm friends with them because I got them off of friendless like people who trade regularly and everyone we'll see I did I did that the other day I was in a bar with a friend and I clicked on a portable some of them are from different countries and so those I find interesting because they'll they kind of cool places and stuff and I'm like Oh man I'm just oh my God I gotta get a picture for you know my wife and the kids because we all love watching that show together and so I was like so what's your favorite key is like the ones you keep and why why don't you do you collect them for other people like that I'm going to start paying attention to what you send me a everyone gets if they get gifts for me it's the same like three portals like every day I'm not traveling for Gift for you to Vegas and My Favorite Star Trek movie is star Trek for the voyage home which is the one it she got it for me so that's really cool stuff like that living in those stories everybody who has one who's listening send it in stuff like that you know Kinda I don't go to exotic places you know but that's like to me I think it's opportunistic but not spammy because you only did it once yeah he was definitely opportunistic but some great podcasts is yet to blow stuff up there was like a cup the there was a lot of grey but there was two other green it was like so I went to our immediately so I apologize I do shit like like all the way up to where it was but then a couple of other agents like start field from the eighty s were they go back in time with the way they save with males metro favorite she had the portal of the location submitted at the same time it took so that was kind of cool Gotcha my one friend she damn it's the only one I see what you're saying we you represent we royal we brought you in on that but whenever you poster apply at bumps it'll it would be like we're we're bumping so we can't you know what I mean Yeah Yeah I Shinwar they filmed it she's like he wants this awesome yeah I didn't get to go there but like she in jail and so I just every time I make sure I send him to jail I don't know if he's caught on yet that I just sent him in jail every time I don't know if that's from the spotlight on a form like twitter or youtube it's there whatever counting is in most a lot of people don't use their agent names in those that like I posted an idea it's based on my what's in the camps idea and so I thought that'd be a good way to to hoping to send me okay okay so we also had some I guess agency news so the new community get some feedback on it and we can talk about those because the one thing I do like about it is it gives the agent's name like all the other avenues that we get information I was when I posted on instagram it's a we right I just don't want to like if I'm I'm sorry I it was I guess one of my it's actually my old boss like our downtown area where we hit a lot there's one of the places in thank you and and all the other great comments on their we'll get to in the new segment I would like it if I was wondering like well we could post in there's another idea that I wanted to float out there that I thought it was kind of a cool idea like we do for badges for anomalies so you can save because the thing about the pokemon go it's not the crap on Pokemon go all it's just that when you open your gifts gone you agent badges for either like i Saturday's or their community or for themselves bio cards or whatever that forums which will talk about more in sit up we got an odd from Andhra gruesome self We we I made a post it wasn't yeah whatever so we yeah it'll be interesting to see how long it takes for us to get band they're just getting we're not going to because I hate seeing you know using their real name by so Mary Smith from Connecticut who lives on one two three streets like I wouldn't post every week that like oh new episodes out nips up you know what I mean because that was spammy so I tested the waters by posting reply right like if you're out on a trip to bring back key souvenirs for folks that's not gameplay related not strategic but just like Oh so and so likes the Eight and works at the bank yeah social security number eight nine three mother name our website yeah yeah like they would be able to give out a Qr code with that would take them to the inner in the staff and it but I would like it if there was like a little area like just signature line then people to promote their people could promote like their blogs and stuff if if I can remember to bring on the cards but I was thinking if agents wanted a badge on our site so we'd have for first Saturday next month and stuff but it is time can like I'd love to do it for free because it is somewhat promotional if they're sending people there their podcast there can then it wouldn't be a blatant thing right right can you the same exact say one they're probably doing the same thing to them the one sitting just you're discussions and things like that so yeah Done it for people for and for like I was GonNa do it for free seconded anything to get bands right yeah I would like because it well I guess we'll talk about the forums as as we go so maybe I should that'll be a day of work so it's like it yeah yeah so yeah so let us know about that nation report so we've got some news this week some things happened and Gonna discuss it first off his is the big AP event for leaking and fielding World Oceans Day do you have fun we're just supposed to apply here and people like who just search for podcast might find us or whatever and went into it's like massively promotional frosts as well like the more people coming to our website to to like I mean it's not really where people they had them or their if they had in the grizzlies ingress community links there yeah or go to listen to the podcast because but you know it is nice to have that community there for things and for news and we can make those and do that for them and I was wondering if Ike what what would be a fair price to charge for You may hear more about that in the next few episodes I might get it rolling and if it gets to be something where it's it's too much it's too crazy than is it is some work to set up a forum and do the image stuff and all that like like five bucks that two months you think or is it just a badge for I think some online but then I think you for the what toys like I know one looks at those who need them really I don't look at them happening this weekend and the glyphosate challenge from June fourteenth to the sixteenth is mind that's so easy guys it's like a little all fifty people at their first Saturday with that code or whatever then that's that's a pretty good deal for like a you know a prize Naini diamond to do is make triangle triangle on the other side send it in and and so that was I hope they continue to do different events like that they also had an event for pride parade I believe in California yeah because what happens if I mean there's for Saturday's all over the world what happens if you get twenty requests in one week or one month you're going to be like okay and then they would get a badge on our site I don't know I I think it's something we're talking about because okay yeah I want that that's something to give out yeah I know I totally get that and if it's a one flat fee of five dollars and then they can give it out they set up some portals along the route but I didn't see any like sit rep post afterwards to know exactly what happened for showing up to the for Saturday and you know if they don't like it they don't it's not like we're requiring people to buy it to someone's going to things yeah it's basically a triangle with a longer triangle yeah yeah yeah so I mean yeah and maybe Oy and just leave it at that and so I- linked like two or three things in that before I was like Oh that might not be a good idea so enjoy the day was family so host birthday so went out and had some barriers with Soho other friends and then what was come from those portals but it's really cool that they're hitting those events definitely and G- lift challenge that is other players were there you know Arno and I wasn't gonna be able to many field with any strategic thought like I was thrown links it does except for all my websites run off that anyway different podcasts let's go ahead and move into this but it's just time requirement on it I need to kind of put some kind of berry on there that not everybody goes because you say free it's like everybody's going always family stuff always always already have commitments on Saturday for that and then giving your six hundred k.. AP A dead but I didn't link for World Oceans Day 'cause I was at didn't just run all over though like I was pretty limited like so and then I started getting nervous about Lincoln all over the park what if I'm T- I didn't know if those Sunday for that so it's like well I don't know yeah that was all like last weekend like Friday was the park I thought well that's mean what if they're actually doing mission so you're the whole thing and I was just like you know I'm just GonNa Hack and I did enjoy the day with a family and so pretty much none of that experience was from well that's pretty Sir are you GonNa do it's the left minding soul right so it's the left one yeah but I mean get I can I don't know I'm GonNa try Father's Day weekend to there's like in the most of what I did playing was on that day I did a lot of micro fielding and and just making links and fields the amusement park so yeah for that whole day like so you can go to three million if you'd been participating in that elect purchase the dewalt atomic family powers only at the Home Depot poor saving more doing see store for details. US only you know you can adjust your rate as needed stamp into I think it's like ten bucks to mail in just perish so that was pretty much with Bergen that all day and then Saturday and needed to go pick up a Washer and dryer that my parents were getting rid of but then it rained out but I was already out so I was already feeling and then anyway so so there's a lot of ingress but then the next day it was like all family I've made g mail which is my real name and I don't want that out there for like like I play a lot of video games and sometimes I just want for local communities there sit reps there's a vent discussion and there's an Ama first ama since stuff I never did 'cause I don't know I don't really like that honestly you have to put like plus went down was held yesterday and Andrew crew is going to be gathering the answers for that over possibly the next two weeks go Yay Dave for me right thank you know what no I love you do I love you but community dot ingress dot com and and we've got new segment coming up right after this like daily answering questions and commenting and asking for feedback and all the feedback stuff is there there's agents recruiting so go out and lift challenge if you get some time also the ingress community that everybody's is the timeframe he gave this'll be the AMA for this month and next month and then the next one will be in August I believe he said August well affect me I mean it's Kinda like the wave kind of like yeah how did with every buddy I mean and there are people who really loved Google plus you know like communities been waiting on to see what was going to take place of g plus has been released and you can go to it today and sign up like opr support and feedback and things like that too because it feels like it's a little more open now and then is all about it because there's so much content now because all the not all of them but there are some niantic employees posting because jeep plus sometimes it kind of took a while to kind of fair out the places where you were supposed to post stuff and then it it seemed almost with your ingress account or really just logging uses your regular ingress count and is your ingress name and it is at I just WanNa Po post people so this is something I'll actually use whereas the plus I wouldn't even a certain level but that includes quoting so like if you quote someone you can't it'll be like you can't post links yet and I'm like I didn't and they didn't hidden even though it's not hidden it just seemed Kinda hard to find like something's in my never got key plus and never never if you're if you have one of the other whatever whatever's going on with the father figure whatever it is you're crazy new modern something maybe but I'm good with this and posted a bit I'm still not level to yet so you can much like that which honestly kind of works for what they need it for so you know could it have been some but that it'll be early it's awesome like to there's an area for I post Flam it's old school forums if he ever did it forms in the past it's it works pretty uh-huh it'll work or I'll use piecing I'll start Canada laptop around with me you gotta come over to my my dad's place now there's stats so anyway everybody has a father's day of bands oh roles in our so smooth I'm gonNA pretend like you did do that because that's awesome you know and then remember to log out of your one before you post on that one and then log into the other one but then you're not on your email it was always as big pain in the butt like just I don't want my real name out there for video game stuff because that's different community and so you'd have to make a second g mail account and then have your winded so it's it's a bug of some sort and they and they have been fairly device because I've only seen it on I don't know okay I've only used yeah I've only checked it on the PC so maybe my only other they can based off agent feedback as well so the question yes how does this look on he's the community are also there was a and I meant to say this after the world's Oceans Day because this is supposed to be a segue into a wave level up on it and issues right now are like when you when you posed you can't post like links or images until you're and the opportunity was there but my son is very likely to just delete his account any day like if he's just I just noticed that you've already used it the community the new one did was you're listening if I put it up but integrated mobile first right yeah that's the new thing but I'm gonNA assume it's fine till I look at it myself you know people who trade a lot with relatives like you know have the relatives account basically hold stuff for him alive okay I would never give him anything like that was my husband's like he like when ah but and then like for someone like you like today is about you so you're gonNA be around for your kids so you can't that appear to be hitting people's relatives or like their relatives accounts you know like I haven't even they like if I'm at work or something like we're not together when I go out to play like he's rarely with me so it's not like I could easily trade with them unless quick on on fixing bugs like there's a forum for posting about issues with the forms themselves and they're taking care of them they're adding features yeah and that's Kinda my one like like either adding more space that you can buy or get over the whole backpack thing because it's like yes it's a little more annoying for me but I can still do it but then if people are doing it and then getting banned because they're just doing it account and they're doing the actions like technically if you take their phone and start doing all the trading the no that's not what I don't WanNa lose all these keys or something so it'd be like hey here can you pick these capsules and they're like what Oh God I got update and like you know thing new check out because it's a mobile base game so you would think that would be fairly well that's one thing I've never done like I kind of felt like it was kind of like I mean my husband and my son have accounts can't you know like yeah and it's just a bad experience for even if it's like a misfire so I don't know if you heard about this in like your local community or just online but apparently there's been a lot of bands today both my kids count and my wife has an account and there were times like before like an anomaly where I need to clear out a ton of space it really is like you're my phone for like why I mean it's it's like way too much hassle like no I'm not going to like go submitted ticket to try to get the care would be like well fine and then it's like I have a play around here who like so he basically stopped playing for a few days and you know what there's prime in the first place now this is happening there like like lost a bunch of gear my relatives accounts band the value. Yeah like your whole dis because they're totally just taking space Now I can see that command okay so anyway let us know what you think about that about a backpacks in general should they sell more space with by doing different things do you think any of those band now to one so serious yeah and it's like I never fact that it's been because I it was also people would lose items that had been given to them by those players as well so the open since last I go play ingress with me Yeah I've never played an anomaly but I could totally see like dropping keys like we were talking earlier like the ones that are it's my kids yet like hey can you again Oh yeah actually I should oh yeah my husband will make it plays so rarely notice for like a month or two AH listen I did it all from home but then I'd have to have his phone to do it he would get annoyed like yeah it's not really got banned though like I mean I don't know yeah I mean that is the thing right like I trust my friends in the ones that I know who said it awarded Multiple Times for spoofing this and that and it's like why are you going after this bs kind of crap when there's more issues out there and you hit someone who was not you know cheating like do you think of that person they already don't play that much as it is do you think they're going to want but is that cheating like if you have someone hold your stuff for you as long as there is if it's a separate or you've made community connections and you're you know doing some trades or whatever so it all seems like legit game play stuff yeah I don't know yeah so but who knows all my backpacks are good you know I'm just kidding that's part pokemon go being able to I mean I've said this before like I can buy bags based in Pokemon go and I can gain that back any some sort of choline game or and stuff but you know it's just I just have a hard time believing that about the agents that I know I wouldn't think they would cheat but you never know right they could have just been straight up on the same phone switching accounts and a ton of res- and enlightening counts that we know are his then all stopped at the same time he's always using them to cheat the poked my like you should be earning Internet's dying is that yours yeah I mean you make a friend that's gone glow if you're lucky right maybe they just take scraping out more like that doesn't seem fair it seems like I have friends that are like talking about like this is the last straw like they didn't want to go to so I just like I think this was a very bad decision honestly to do this at this moment I don't know what the criteria was or the reasons why people expes either through legitimate gameplay or purchasing it so it's you know you give people it's not a pay to win because you can earn it everybody sorry I downloaded that terabyte of data now showers doing anything anyway we missed that like with welcome Ango But I think that would be a way to do that I don't know I don't did hurt items like right now so I'm going to have to you know give some gear away but what I do it I know I'm not getting it back from the sell image like flip your inventory for nominee so you can keep a set that there's something needs to be done completely well it's really trading dropping items and they're picking up anything it's not your fault downloading stuff that way the Internet just say he's not doing anything yeah I think losing out on that part of the game like I just like knowing it's out there and if I was someone who had the freedom to play like that that would that would I'm when I we share stuff I'm like okay so I'm going to be going back I'm I'm Marty like ninety you can always find a way to store stuff yeah with friends and family I mean I can actually co worker hey can you download the is game and started character and hold this for me for a week and I would probably do it matter of fact I have a couple coworkers starting to play really down yeah and and when the fat comes down to that you can trade and give stuff to other players legitimate players as well so you still have a valid way for free to play players distill Max out their inventory I mean eventually there's going to be a Max loaded it and I know their name that's about it so okay but you know what I mean so yeah that's two thousand races right there just off the bat for mines I there's youtube videos that I've watched people who have made connections cross you know travel I wish I could be up like a part of that but then like that I'm like oh but I like to sleep totally break the game it would be a whole bunch players yeah you can so hot idea it punishes legit players it's not punished sorry waist report is done Raven case studies are now officially closed the last was posted episode thirty just a couple of days of keys and exits extra burster and resonator and stuff like that but you're also though and you know either you're you're harvesting them through cliff hacking yeah well this shows already almost an hour and we're just to their brand new segment which is win the game for me because that does like I could see that being a very compelling part of ingress yeah so no I think that'd be I think that's a way it's a twenty nine to thirty when I miss what's the hats just more Johnson's double Johnson's there's more eh the the bad guys so I don't like it yeah I didn't have the other one but so okay last thing in the city Magog guys you've got to quit doing that to hanes maybe hangs it'd be better to if you're wondering where episode twenty eight is because it's not actually listed is twenty eight unlike youtube it's the colon video uh-huh three Johnson same Johnson's thirty together that makes cracks me up every time they do that I'm like that breaks the game like can you imagine having to get all the keys to every feel that you were gonNA throw but then doesn't that really change the community like against they're now holding it for me it's like all right well I'd rather give it to them and have someone used the stuff though then Scott is as well terrence says there's a bug that causes the APP to freeze okay all right so sightings this is there's so much content that I think is good on the community now that I think those are the big deal if someone wants to have like I mean I guess it is a massive it's a massive bonus to have like exit all in airports and stuff in order to make these amazing fields and can use of come together to like figure the way and the and all those apps when I wash them it's like wow it is number twenty eight you see the list on done riven the done Raven website there they actually have all the case studies in order on one I don't know what that's from but wow double rainbow dude from the shaft so I'm stealing it from our other old then just delete it and that way at least you know my friends are getting a p and amuse and all that jazz so so we may get through this pretty quick unless there's something to talk about so Andrew Krueg Ama they're back on the community other frequently we made some changes under the hood now we've not experienced with the next update that's coming out however it doesn't mean it's fixed yet so paid so unless it's a fake site and I've been fooled all the time because it was kept up to date with the video so if you could please try to point to four when it comes and see if you still experience the problem so that's awesome that's that's a big bug eating it just think about that I I would say that are going to be confused people the next one is from ninety next here you want to read this one NIANTIC Scott says there's a UI update one underwear like it's like oh that's next posted and closed the first one there's like eight pages of questions we'll let you know the import ones when they get posted you are I or trying to get it in before the acted like where mom the plays once every three months is like what is this sweetie I'm band and then this happened you do that the APP it's no big deal is restarting start the APP and we gotta get won't be interested in hearing so we're GonNa try to aggregate all the stuff from like niantic employees in one place in the podcast it is especially yeah you're on the road for a while like I just leave it open have my phone plugged in I'm sitting so and I think that's a big one for people to take heat of like do you want to be forced into prime or do you want to be able to the yeah like every day I log in it's different game every single day so it's great that they're play it all start working at like like I wish they'd Kinda push this point more when they first released do it anyway so give them a little bit of slack and try prime just do it for month like here's my challenge to everyone Nicole risks that we needed to mitigate among other things if we didn't have something available than ingress could have disappeared until we release something that's interest- apprehending it open for too long starts network request to lock the clients up as they wait for minute long timeouts tends to often on Wi fi not that I'm ding because redacted is out anyway redacted is still a ticking time bomb some API level issue could cause of functioning without warning had to pay extra to get them to maintain it for a little bit longer but the fact is it was going away and they had to basically who doesn't want to go to prime drop reacted for one month don't go interact redacted at all for one month at the end of that month auto out and playing but even on a relatively stable mobile network connection it can still got frequently enough that I give up in return to redacted nineteen replying from nine ninety Scott who said this is something that has vexed the Dev team for a bit as it was initially hard to reproduce also encountering it Oh yes just I really finish the coding and it's manage some people aren't about some of the bugs I mean it's a hard thing to do and you can't just hire fifty people in I they released it because I know it had a lot to do with the platform that was they were built on irs was sunsetting and so I don't know so now challenges arise though because if we change one thing that really may have an unintended impact elsewhere he's a consequences the name of the agent with their question in gray and then the ingres party cheer June that's the date again for a birthday and Blah Blah Blah Blah so yes and like with the being father's day like it's not about me so I can't just take off you know paraphrasing so basically squash one bug more bugs come out over here it's a big pain in the butt typical stuff so they're working on it learn the you know passenger seat or whatever and start going through a small town you're like Yay no I got to restart the APP and then by the time the restarts you're back on the freeways her prime was pushed too soon it feels like an Alpha two Beta phase and Scott replied said there were ten are roughly half an hour of play it's a problem that pokemon go has been plagued with since the beginning and unfortunately persistent prime to backgrounding the so that's kind of cool new you I it scares me that like people who are just getting used to a drastic lead different with prime and they're going to change it like I'm worried about the people who are the last ones leaving redacted into a new Ui then like the next day at changing they're going to be like I'm out right right so it's like what do you think should they wait months before doing is make your decision then honestly they're not I I can't see them going back in to fix her dad did as they push out new content you know updates and stuff for prime I mean are they really going to go and update so like anytime the dwarf atomic family of powers only at the home depot poor saving more doing see store for details resume him to wear I know what people are feeling about prime that's how I feel about redacted at this point like I dread allergies anyway so it was hard to get used to prime like immediately it it did take like awesome I don't know that's it's personal call some people hate change that is true that is true and so I mean into redacted just because it's like okay this is anomaly and you just feel like well I gotta use what's the most stable but I didn't a good voice for this one so yeah I like new things to some degree like I like trying new technique just sinking myself into it and not going to redacted for probably a week and then like slowly it became like anything so she was like basically playing blind where I'm like it's up a road and over like Oh that's Brian but definitely I think joining the one so anyway that was the light fair this week but that was there was the castle at opened up and spit out some stuff I have an idea that I wanna talk about this week we the forms themselves too so I I don't know maybe I don't know that may be too many like two tons that went into to Boola Boola says give all agents that joined the community the community metal in Prime Niantic Mack said it's something we are inside it's right I'm like oh she's using redacted and because it was we were under like this big multi-layer field like she couldn't st the roads she couldn't see really have any problems with prime so I don't know we were me and a coworker conference and I was on prime and entering I love as and they're supposed to be metals are badges in it's something goes wrong with prime and I feel the need to go back in there which I haven't felt in since the anomaly and like I think something happened during the the anomaly that I would it's ex but think these things happen I don't know I'm not someone who didn't bother me I just switched so I'm I'm not really want to like make a comment and whatever we'll talk about the comments next week basically the idea is a new item and this would be a Omar Dea so anyway mind is a and I posted this on the community ingress form steadied super useful in anyway next next the ground and it makes creates a shard portal and then there's four slots for enlightened for slots for resistance it's great we can grab the and she was like oh how are you seeing that because fields in prime you can still see the portals and I taught I look at her phone she was unredacted and so we were in this new town new to us town and I was like oh well there's there's no right to write it's up it's up the street and over to the and once you fill the portal with with resonator it spawns a Shard and force I'm GonNa go this idea no I just can't believe whatever you do don't show target portals to for each faction and then whatever time limit twenty four hours forty eight hours two hours takes a shard portal so it'd be a new item that you get by however you get it you get it and you go somewhere and you place this on l. area and then that's pretty much it and so it's like a little mini game that you could run and there's great some suggestions about you you try to get your shards into the target portals and if you get a certain amount of mu for your cell and so it'd be like in the I think it's a lovely concept that would be difficult to implement in many communities and so they wouldn't be like all over the cell and so I kind Merton merge the ideas and so if you put like basically a smaller version agent vein talking about having a smaller version that you use on a i Saturday's and smaller and so then it's like what would present me if if they were about to win just blown up have people from each faction filling up the resonator then you have a little game don't so I see you're not that's the Soho nine Internet was yeah yeah sorry about that mccollum ideas we have you're selling the neighboring cells so get bigger but it's like both factions would almost need to agree on what it is because like it doesn't work unless you ones in the resonator is in the Puerto then it would be a smaller kind of feel to play to where eighths and every slot and it might be I'll start with decide eighty-eight said Kia Ora from New Zealand I and many others will have the game too well you'd be fighting against each others still like the only working together it'd be to fill up the resumes on that portal friends and nice and stuff like that but also I don't know like Iki can't alienate people the new well hope you like capsule what's in the capital of the capsule to catch up who don't want that because the games very you are working together within the community and stuff like that too but there's still a lot of freedom with you know the ability to catch your portals because you know it portal dense area and you're going thirty five miles an hour it's just pulsed on the idea your comments hate it love it make the post lesson I feel but then you're fighting to keep the Shard from their port from their targets while you're trying to get into your targets so you have like a shard battle okay because there's we could save so yeah maybe we'll save them all right don't be surprised if saleability goes there and so Ho's all over it yeah I've got a chat there there was an audience a little mini shows like that it's right in the center right on top of the portal and it just like uh-huh I like the idea of adding more stuff to make people work together and Nope Collins all all these are all either submissions in the form or posts and I might skip a couple of them yeah all these ideas on details details out there yeah so all right we'll maybe can blow up the Shard portal maybe doesn't need it just goes away once it yeah yeah we have to work out all the stuff that had claiming from the last one I did and I WANNA get my hack numbers up and it's just like why why are these boxes here and it's costing me percent extra damage and stuff like that I mustn't up again you're good now okay whenever you're Italian eight of the bonus percentage damage for the long attack and also I agree that the papa box with all the gear like hey gripe about the issue around hacking and prime what occurs when you hack a pop up box comes up at the completion with the items act in the middle of the scanner this inhibits quick hacking other portals in the scanner no issue in redacted the pop up box does not disappear and ghosted portals and just throw resonator down as you know I'm getting driven past and I'm missing them because I have to just do these stupid taps Tiscali that I did and apparently that that is annoying to some some folks in the chat sorry about that a while ago it's Internet niantic please I hate this I agree completely this is I don't understand why has to be there I'm trying to click here until you click outside it and it's very frustrating for those who have lower devices get rid or move it outside the scanner this would just like to see more learn the game not sure what would be a good way to go about it but that would be fantastic it gets

Thank you do speak Sir Guy Well on the website and you've worshiped your pod mother that gave you beings revamping the website so there's a new front page if little harsh on on the design of the website the original or the new one but it's it's it's bad it's kind of Nice that when you don't do want someone says something right like if you just didn't do an- and no-one said Oh you know who you are yeah I get upset that makes them feel like we're talking about him yeah Oh yeah Oh yeah are one favourite I'm agent Guinea Guy High Agent Gooney Guy I'm Asian sully belly high agents Ellie Belly I'm agent Guinea Guy Awesome just in case you didn't catch it the first time that you said it said it again I'm just speaking of saying it again it's another no the original it didn't matter you can win this harsh as you wanted to because I hated it I really hate it they can't even pretend like I was harshly I really really hard for me personally to navigate and I'm on the show like I was so frightened traded and like I gotta say this whole revamp of our website if you haven't bender up say like this week and like you've been frustrated with their website in the past originally the problem was our host was crappy and so I had to remove like all the dynamic stuff on the front and it was a lot of scroll up and you find like Oliver Kinda it's awesome I love it when there's still some stuff to do on it so yeah yeah but I mean just it's just throwing stuff on the real quick and never had a chance to go back and fix it so we're fixing it I really like how the news features on there check it out agent Academy podcast dot com I you know it's one of those things where like there's this big like you know image just scroll and it's like slide show e highlighted we need the social stuff on there we'll get to that we'll get some of the missing stuff we'll end we'll take off the G. and then it's just so much better and then how the podcast features on there a lot better too so like it because we are where podcasts it goes on twitter account which is fine because there's twitter I guess he actually will sell you everywhere you need to go or you can actually tweet to us and ask us if you're confused and will answer you so life because of the nature of needing to be logged in like there's some things that'll cash but in general and that's what makes the pages load faster is because ah works for now but now be snow what's missing that you were like Oh it was easy to get to this and now I can't yeah I I'm complaining as an end user and I know you've done so much work it is so much better and like I want to seeing the websites and cms in general wordpress Rupel Juma if you're logged in it won't cash stuff in my area but we just hired a couple of people so that should lessen as I teach them how to do that stuff now one of them a found out and lunch that she's a resistance agent she knew Oh my God so there's that and then it were to get to the community areas that we that are those gone no no no so and I definitely want that to be more obvious here's a little secret about really okay my one request is I would like a little bit more obvious a little bit more obvious plus stuff that's still on there I know yeah probably I think when you click on the one thing the middle scarcest podcast your praises because I know like yeah you you've done so much to get us to this point so but we need the valid like what you said is complete all the people that applied for it no I would have definitely hired her even if I now it might have been a weighing factor because there is you know we actually like take our hires out for lunch with everybody in our department yeah I feel I feel that okay so here's the thing if they were if all the situation was the same a third candidate that was the exact same match qualifications in everything was the same except for that stints agents that play in Huntsville right so it's like now it's like it's a little frustrating because I appreciate all your work because I like it a lot a lot better that's in like couples therapy I I feel no I can't talk about some things at work now can I can I ask you hired we're so I've been thinking about this it's much better now that I've I've so I changed the whole theme which is much faster than the one we're using a lot of work how does yours hiring in she knew no I didn't know it's it's a small world I mean there's ten reasons right so they're frauds beaters fighting effort though that was anyway we'll get to that we'll get to that I would breath played on the blue side and so eventually found out that wasn't true like the person didn't actually work where I work they hi never awesome like okay because for people who maybe newer to the show back when I they are in the vicinity but they don't work there but I was so so like really really pulled mark it's so everything's been really busy because I was kind of the last developer at work on the the front end like all our marketing win stuff would've though the answer is yes you would have because that would be like horribly horribly abusively wrong not to hire someone based no no no no so hear me I playing in grasp what got me interested was I mean obviously Brent like talked about it but he listened Alabama like you're a million miles away it's hard to it would be like if a patriots fan and they were like Chicago Dan instead of how it goes hiring on that no I don't make the I locked into the game and I started talking to people in the community like started to get out there that there was a rumor that someone I worked with I can't work with someone who beats puppies that all right well resistance agents are known to didn't say that invalid and it will get added I don't feel like I don't Kakai and whatever and I appreciate your feedback go to the to the forty million you need to level sixteen so you've been kicking it each week we have well yeah quarterly at work yeah Franken party anyway yeah so anyway that's about me what about you yeah that'd be good that'd be fun because it really did pull me into the game when I thought it was someone that I worked with so you know the kicker is that they don't really they'd either I actually started to beat frogs at least in Amsterdam in Amsterdam they beat up who out of some frogs mine wasn't as nearly as fun as like finding out like people I know play the game but I did hit this is big I play ingress that much anymore they played just to get to level enough to Seattle's so I think I'm safe except for she does into the game because I was like I thought it was this one particular co worker and like hammering their their portals and stuff like crazy and getting bad information so I actually think it can be good to have like a coworker that plays on the other side to have this like playful espionage to me tried to get a gazebo it work that because she wants a portal and all the decorations on your desk and Jack My desk is like the tackiest thing you've ever seen this week we do like weekly it is for the top three AP earners for the week and like this week was it's time to move was the theme and so this the twenty million AP Mark Hauling Crafts is fourteen point five you know so that's like halfway and we make sure everybody gets along and they just Kinda Gel because we want to hire people for long term the get along and that's just near noon but it's hard to get interested in a game where you don't have a local player to like show you the ropes and when yes yes you're gonNA get like horrible like tumors probably and then but then I got so are you happy about this I won the Ol- portal nominations I am I was like super excited yesterday I just noticed thank you one a mosquito one of those mosquito lake spiral risks patches you know what I mean like it's obscure competence L. decision can't even weigh in on it because it's unethical why is that unethical because it is being white and you're like the report we got a little bit of News Star Frog that you would like put in your flower garden as little crown on we call it the Royal Frog and you get it when you get into the twenty million oh nice hires and I'm like I wonder if she was like he knew I was resistance and he's putting a frog on my door I didn't even think about that could ask her the old dude who left took a picture of him wearing my frog hat and he photocopies pictures and then put them on the back of the doors of all the news a little green perecentage hand sanitizers that are like into go bottles and then I had a the local store head the spurs it's like little dollar store like I should submit a picture I'll put it on instagram maybe this week but it's a little dollar store literally dollars good time that's that's that's all that's all so oh so speaking of frogs you made me think of something when she'll come on I gotta get out gotta get but I do like seven or eight like in okay my problem is there's there's a Zebo and like where I work and on the campus that I really want to submit but the geese just had babies and it's right near the aw you know you could always have that person put on a a lovely resonator and then you flip it and make it a little you could make up the new we actually had three total hires two were in our our department one of the guys who works at work thought it'd be funny to print out this photo that the John Sunscreen and the eighty five proof was in a green colored bottles I'm like well you're getting eighty five and you know I talked about my Saturday and my badge came through so that's good that's good yeah for instance still play yeah and no it's fun you're going to have a fun time so we'll see but I do now have someone who will the really aggressive like it made the news because they were chasing the students I fear but it's it's basically just you can take another pictures so like I did go picture of this thing from two floors up and then friends but now I think it's one so why are they reacting we add this whole team like I don't know they don't actually that someone else that was he makes sure that what your submitting gets a accurate picture of his location and its distance away from other things so everyone got those this week so like gave those out and it was kind of fun like the frog skin stuff or what does it kind of sounds fun yeah submit portals and portal nominations have submissions are called nominations now in in Ingram prime and you could send a right through the prime APP good submission that won't be on the final portal that's really good but we'll help opr and so I would like to Opr to to see what you get on yeah it's like almost like people put their keys on them grist educating green ones so when you were we could be me like submitting it but we could talk through them together and I think that'd be a fun extra show like nationally to do yeah that'd be great and you just click the center circle over on the right of the same not nominations and you click allegiance through this really like it's a little detailed hand held territory the big slacker miss that I know so I was like just like what when it came to be submitted any not through the I'm like wait might be a good picture I just want to be in the news that submissions are accurate so can you actually do okay so I know there's like a secondary picture that you can do of the area can you actually do a photo sphere on fear but it's Oh you did done one commission because I was wondering if I missed a toggle to like turn on thanks yeah those Jerky frogs now I'm really going to blow his crap up anyway since it's it's the situation and prime but then you can go and submit fourteen in redacted the gentleman we have twenty eight submissions the moment so okay but in every submission you get to do kind of like a little photo sphere and so what that does is it really so but those won't have the extra details so if you think you need the extra details take the pictures in prime in that it's not a full well let's say yes or no I haven't actually but why hurt is it's not I don't take the grace because I haven't heard it I haven't actually done it but I so I have a question for you so the Athol amaze and stuff there's more and more baseball fields and fee I'm interested to see what they look like when they come through and I want to start doing some more OPR and I would like to invite you to join me for some live opr the other the other thing is I don't know the validity of this Zevon tried it but apparently there may be a bug at the moment where you can submit your fourteen in the back yeah I haven't seen any submissions come through the OPR that seemed like they were different yet but that's just me if you think it speaks for itself redacted and then you double up on here aren't out there geese geese egg one well my question is that like I get a field I get like a sports complex but it's like when you have like baseball field one reform because they'll put like four right next to like I don't know if that's hitting kind of the spirit like I feel like you need the offer that kind of wait on that one but I really like in case people don't know what I'm babbling on you can't one for that you know how there's a one through five judgment star system and you go yes or one star that well in the location because they're right next to each other it's not gonNA create extra port at I really don't know if they would have been two portals fields being submitted so you're thumbs up on that I like that that well it's all about getting okay go ahead ask three questions I won't watch another and it's a big area and it's just like such a waste it's wasted potential in one sense but the fields have one a baseball softball complex and there are multiple multiple fields and it is listed as the baseball fields like just one portal that's pretty pretty awesome with that strew yeah go out there so sweet move it really is time to move admissions in ingress let alone pokemon go because they're so close together you know you'd have to do one at one end and then one on the other side of the other in yeah yeah no that we have to like for example there's two basketball courts outside like on campus right next to each other and when we the person I was with I was actually showing the agent how to submit a portal and three point and so if it's not open like it would only be accessible to walking persons during events you would go to be like well I know it's a good thing but I'm gonNA give it like two or three do that no well that's what that starts so she did her photo sphere and submitted it but we submitted the two basketball courts as just the basketball courts Ryan yesterday but I guess it had been rolling out and Andrew Craig had been he went live and like said it was coming but I obviously the other thing they added you can add you have description but then you have a secondary like field that you can fill out with just information about it like why would this be went down and I took a picture back so you could see where it was the location of it fan no no it's just like a secondary picture to because it's a campus there's like in that area there's other ones I I don't know if they run further away from those so I think we're happy with getting the one baseball field open to the public for hours outside of Baseball Games and then I would say that yes that's more likely to be accessible for additional gameplay right and there wasn't addendum on on one of the Ama's where they were Andrew asked in and so I guess you have to just go with what's appropriate for your area but like yeah in the town I live in there is a right and so then it wouldn't be appropriate people walking in there it's not open if there's no of going on so like I don't know it just it depends the ops about it if it doesn't have a sign I believe it says to one star those so they they prefer girl because they're right next to each other seemed greedy in you know what I mean elect purchase the dewalt atomic family powers only at the home depot more saving more doing see store for details. US only hands on the field maybe yeah yeah like what they're open to so I can see that so is the our the portal portal something different we don't talk about that no that's another podcast it is and we'll do that you know I have a sign on it which makes sense like I feel like there needs to be a focal point for the portal the poodle the work a lot no it's a lot of effort and it's awesome and I'm very excited for Chicago this about res- wins this in light it was just very even all the way down which could be because there's two teams it's all just flat out rigged no you don't think so sure that's not I hope it's not because there's a lot of agents that do a lot of but I would like to see the storyboards for if the other side one all these events I do they have it prepared speaking of the nominations the resistance win in Amsterdam congrats it was you don't have any cheers like a thing in sports overconfidence yeah yeah no sports ball terms so anyway so but there's also like could they be it kind of helps them out if it's close but yeah because he's like that it would have mattered because the total points the team would have still won even losing right so as close it was a hard fight they all yeah so it brings Chicago down to you know it's going to be if I were to wear tin foil hats I need to get one I might think if you look at all the scores like they even posted a thing green had landslide both of these basically be like why go to Chicago except for Chicago's awesome like resistance wouldn't show probably yeah they do well they wouldn't have to if they knew who was GonNa win a lot of work since meaningless well okay so if I were to like not true at all that's a bad joke but yeah so all roads lead the Chicago Yeah I've been following an instagram like a lot away it's like when you get like you get over height because you know you're GonNa win a game because you're playing a loser team and then they kick your butt like what's that called right yeah well there's no reason to win it will just be watching frogs running around partying that's where they get you because like then Woah I I heard a little bird Greenberg told me that someone was an embedded reporter Oh yeah I thought we talked about actually kind of preparing all the stuff because I've I'm going to be an embedded reporter for Chicago and they're just GONNA put it out there lot of blue hype for Chicago Lot of bring the hat home I'm not really sure what that is but it's a big yeah it's Kinda like this military ish hat on I don't know I I don't know the story behind it so and I apologize accused cheers on the frogs brought out the the Lens and everything and it was a right there with the story it's it's it's it's not a whiteboard you just like wipe it off it's not a big deal go like the other team would have like you know we'll because it's worth points but if one team had won everything but Chicago yeah and it's it's a series and stuff like that through the couple of hours that the actual anomaly is happening And then we if I mean I don't know now works I know because I think like I think they haven't figured out like well better smarter than or it's all rigged A tie under wire I mean yeah it's it's not going to be a first Chicago all events or were double making all other events I would be willing to kind of happy live here from my like base tat we didn't tournament that well but we haven't heard much about it yet this episode so good remind people so yeah about how to make sure I get that in don't miss stuff so I'm trying to set up like buffer and my camera has up for it so I can just turn the APP on I'll be right there live yeah but I mean I know you'll probably be like talking to so many people that like wireless on it so I can just I'm going to automate it to send it to a folder and then I can pick which one I want which will my buffer which already have my hashtags ready that involves me taking a certain amount of photos or videos per hour which you know how good I am at that love and so I'm working on doing but if you could break in and go live you could just like text me it'd be like I got I can go live for an interview real quick before Oh yeah sent out I believe so where were they misspelled it and it was like bringing the sweet home or something it is true it's absolutely true it was funny I'm sure there's spirit gone so is it should pose hat are they bringing that home I don't know it's like this weird like hat I don't know the policemen firemen fan and so hopefully I get that also can either a ques- yes request away and are one of the reactor break in and have the live interview kind of thing and they're like I'm trying to activate the hit a Hashtag wearing it kind of I had looked but I don't know the story so that'd be interesting so sooner bias one of us you know what when you re curse you need go blue so we have unbiased here coming offensive but I've only played for eight years and only get all this stuff yet so I'm really trying if someone knows send us in the detailed information happening I've seen what happens when people recurs not always a good at least around here it was not a good situation you know it makes it I think it would work out fine even if green or blue had one either of the other events because then they would have been overconfident and then in Chicago level of the ingress community even local we're talking about stuff so maybe I don't know everything there's Chicago will be Blue Hashtag police their their routes they're they're really really hyping it up the get the whole so you would think resistance it'd be like Oh why shop so actually enlightened me like we don't need to show up and they're sandbagging because they're not really saying that's the wrong term explain we'll keep the frog on our desk now how about that so in and I'm not there I can't be embedded but I would I would like to kind of cover like what's going with scores in like try and catch her the Hashtag of embedded reporters assistance still has a lens to us. Yeah we don't are the enlighten doesn't guarantee so we'll say charter bias and also they're not gonna be able to talk about it around you and that's a big part of my life so it's not happening I'm not switch tender it is the beginning do use tendered and recruit younger like it's a it's a very tender might not work well because the order okay that's fine and I'll do my best to like get this setup and cover when can I know it'll be kinda boring mostly okay but no one else's like doing less right no I think it'd be a lot of fun and then if I can find you know Andrew on the ground or something agree oh you went green said blue getting you need to send in fact change real quick you know like oh those how that worked so we even though we are both enlightened we I know you made some buttons scamming afford the wardrobe change yeah but it's just you know all your friends are talking enlightened stuff email for life switch pledged right you all have to either start over or like every quarter and that could be one of my social media things if you tweet it for me when we do it I could that would count salins you need to leave me alone no no let's let's talk for a second what did that feel like so that's that's the thing so but in harmony actually just talked co worker today into playing so yeah I see so we'll have some for facts and we have stickers so we have a euro oval thing for resistance and and during the live events you may not be available but me afterwards like directly afterwards you could kind of give us a behind the scenes and what if I could do that bill I thought it was bringing the hate home or something it's a physical had I've seen people where there is an email for like just giveaways like it's good to gives people something so yeah so they were happy probably sitting there in the park still this right there no one wants to touch him I told you I gave out hand that is the next one is going to be three times and this is from doing the Earth Day thing I believe right and and so I I serve there's the beach all Canadian yes oh definitely I will give you half so they'll be a k show up late that's my best friend I'm not happy about this you're not going it was my best friend's baby shower ah that intro Dettori like the length of a Bible what is this the Asian Academy twitter is okay that'd be great we could tell he did that so technically we're the embedded editor I've something and that's speaking of next next For Saturday in June yes okay don't sound so enthused if I was now because I was actually well you'll just have to go play three times more than you would in a normal week and then you're GonNa make up for it and so we're going to bring some buttons you're GonNa give them to me I think to take Chicago a blue buttons and Blue Green Buttons and I make Green Button attitude and in there they were they talk all the time about like things they need to change change like from an hour to half an hour from when things I like handfuls out to people the for Saturday like the three people I talked to but they were really happy because they're running mission days and stuff so they were actually gonna use them excited because a couple of us we're talking about going to that one and I'm not GonNa best he takes you know stick with it and then you swipe right and you got a new recruit badge now that's different time I sat in a pub with my husband because I didn't know anybody going to my first first Saturday and so we're discussing for a while was people would just come by in basically dirty hacked the Portland and head off and not do anything else and get community day of getting together so it's not that one hundred case hard to get like I think I got like ninety K and literally most of the how did we get new friends how about you come on over to our friends it's hard I'm the one who made all them go green definitely does I guess why isn't she playing we'll talk about that later so also with I twenty five total in Chicago going to an anomaly you need most not half maybe most well we'll work on that we'll talk about that hey there's a new AP requirement it's really low though I believe it's only five K. APN during the event to get the badge and all the other requirements This past week I don't know if it was active for the last I I don't think it wasn't something that was Did they actually have a reason for the change be happy to yeah you know what I mean yeah I can see that I mean my own people were calling for like a hundred case or is it all speculation from so there's a once you start doing a first senator there's actually a slack you'll get invited to or you you can ask Oh but you don't want it to be like something where it's actually difficult to get because then you'll discourage people from going and it's supposed to be a social happy fund as long as you submit everything in a proper manner Tom just addison today right just kind of learned this yeah just I won't see fifty people fifty that no I haven't though buns last time was because I just put them on the table take somebody do all that stuff so it's just not something he wants her gate but he went with me and he was being supportive because he understands it's important to me account come back in the thing is the thing is it really like I think it just makes we win had appetizers a little place that he wanted to check out in in the town which is Kinda like part of the agreement that's intimidating for some people like I I know I do a podcast but I I get like there's to me there's one me were on like shopping on my ear I and I did another little mission and then that was a day so I I would've may I wouldn't have made the hundred K. though right but I you know like for that he does right probably very care but but he but I was as active as I wanted to be you know what I mean like for a first set it was my first and uh-huh Shannon's that's what they did but my husband went with me and he doesn't play doesn't want too late other awards and so they want to make sure there people actually you know at least doing something to fields in live pack a few portals the entire time and get enough right yeah philosophy res- you'll be eight packs he's like going into a for Saturday is you don't want to scare off people who this is it's like okay this is my for Saturday but it doesn't going there and then I blew up luckily that was a porno and I kind of blew that a billion times and and like burned it out and then we and make a ton of AP that way and the and it's also people play their different ways and I think it's just care about the badge but also to I don't WanNa drag him a round something he's uncomfortable with you know what I mean so we did a mission an agent just last week about first Saturday and asking some information about it a lot of people do is they go to where everybody is hacked the portal start and then they go to the dentist place that no one's going to be at to go and micro field this happened at the are the the restocking portal at the end it used to be an hour after the event this is I believe a change that came from that because that was something that well let me fun yeah we could appear in our yard I wanted the name just because there's an some of the people who kind of run it feel better but in all honestly you can still go dirty hacked the portal go an hour away from around the the people at five games are trying to make the people who are supporting them by running them happy by you know doing the event make your five k. and still get the badge like it's there's no restriction on where you go and play and make the AP that's one of the things that anyway started you just need we should do first Saturday episode because we actually had I had a question from records and flip and they've been like super awesome well I think in fact depends okay like I'm at this I believe the change they put in was actually something about using in grassed walking from the building to my car and I'm like but aid to hack this so yes right I didn't check it out at all eh I think it would be I had these assumptions so yeah that'd be good doug clarify and maybe if you it was then it would create more for Saturday's more towns perhaps maybe maybe but you're not requiring someone to you're not gonna like ruins of his time if they're a level one and they're at their for Saturday you could probably just then maybe wouldn't that'd probably would probably it probably would it would be and we need think he did I mean they can put in like you know get ten dollars for reading this just click on this at the end of it and no one you know there'd be safe for a while so it sounds like a good idea I have a question yes why did I have a new terms of service when I logged in the things that that make them happy and I think it's low enough that it's not gonNa hurt anybody like it's not gonNA stop anybody from getting in your definitely participating with five gay trading and I don't know if it was intentional but someone mentioned it again today I saw about it being out of sorry and then there's the me that's like hi okay I never know which means gonNA show up that day and I was the only gutted anyone who doesn't have a law degree actually read those entirety just sold my dog to them I have no idea I five seconds into reading it I'm just going to be like their words words words words words Eric in a library like you like words them for each game I guess it's just one antic properties and they removed wording in there about you wrote a blog post and simplified it and Kinda just we talk about on the show and shared that information and document was that was basically this is how you should act as an agent and so I don't know if that just kinda vanished when they changed the website means the possibility of other people finding out your locations sort of information that's good to tell people I don't know that you actually need to get your like chamber of Commerce involved kind of record so but yeah no that's right after this one so come to the no no potable now do enemy we're GonNa talk about the total nominations so others and agent ninth and way my saying that right is it nineteen Tau yeah nine is levelling from one to eight on just snoring wakes up the next person so it works hey but what doesn't put you to sleep is making money for shells aw us as average average folks shouldn't have be required to read it and signed this team has to go into writing a terms of service because like so bad so yeah I can't can't I don't know what else can when words were written by a lawyer for lawyer even if you read it it's like it doesn't really make complete sense I'm GonNa be honest like what what does that lane forty their terms of service changed and so you signed it but like what was it because like I'm not reading it I was like Yup 'cause I was I also and this is something that changed while ago when they merged off because they merged everything into kind of like one T. O. S. and so they don't have to and it could just be oversight I don't know if it was in the actual T. O. S. or not could've been I don't know you know the current one and I don't know if it was in the in the original tea os or if it was in the agent guidelines because they had te'o aspen they add like a secondary the people are going to sleep while they're doing it eh pags yeah the towns they tend to be in have certain requirements for portal density ish nece that you're fine usually for oh no there's no requirement for Saturday it could be in the smallest mission days have requirement yeah might as well be and here's the kicker so he also made a statement about for every person that cinema calms me begins alone if five hundred apiece it's going to take quite a bit I believe round thousand dollars Jillion dollars yeah the Thomas Family of powers only at the home depot more saving more doing see store for details U._S. only a human confirmation of that because I've done it I have I have a mission right now that I have deleted so no one else can do okay the person who is able to make the trek to that event there might be a special agent Academy Mission Oh area amazing it's a fantastic idea nobody going away soon too so get all your toast idea I mean that's a lot of money to help a lot of people that need it so great job good work agents ninth aunt upcoming dates for NFL one three three one coming up kind of making its way to Chicago so on the eleventh which already happened and the twelfth already happened but the eighteenth it'll be in Springfield Illinois with the simpsons and then Fort Wayne bring home the red beacon hat in Chicago Hashtag also there's some beacons now get them in your account I think all resistance agents should get about two thousand beacons and just sit him in your account at least in telegram channels by us by a bunch of people basically went global in I think it ended up being like ten thousand dollars or a lot a site rep for the whole thing which I believe is in this post if not we will add it and then you can read like what's going on money so I don't know how that's turned out we will update the post on it as we Find more news I do know they have Indiana on the nineteenth and then Ann Arbor Michigan on the twenty third actually not in Ann Arbor that's what they said yeah they they ever on I know there are some agents helping them out so that they would actually be able to follow through on the donations to the woman shelter so it's an incredible Lita mission that the people who've earned the mission retain the badge with like okay I want like the Super Fly Yeah Aubrey's pizzeria and grill it is absolutely empty and P till after Chicago the good cause right right special for this month when when you could just updated every time you wanted to well no you want to keep the names there is there a secret it'll be available until June I've been told if I I'd like to see the actual mission says that it's for the May Twenty Nineteen meet up so I I would like to then delete it so that it's kind of just it's just kind of funny but so look for the van and if it's not there to the other one and there might be there might be if you're a same right yeah so you could do I mean that's the only yeah and it's just goes I plan on me UH hoping you'll be there I'm hoping to be there to yeah so we're trying to have an actual agent academy meet up approved in advance did get rejected the first time so well because I mentioned the NL one three three one acts in the description so I guess that's all the news right we got Sir we have a Colin the mission has nothing to do with them it's just our social thing right there and then people who why don't we add a cards and codes stat that way it would keep track of how much AP that player that's interesting I did find an instagram account that is completely agents got an idea not so much for what's in the capsule but more of an idea for a change in statistics from play might be kind of helpful to figure out if that account might be a Spoofer or not just an idea thanks everybody bye happened we'd meet up and use tender it's my pride recruit recruit where that's going as possible and hack only trying to be as simple as possible that's a good one yeah that's a good one and have these badges and be legitimate player so yeah to have like that out there of the show and enjoy the show meeting there so mood it is six portals as close to that area oh I think because you're not supposed to mention anything official like you're not supposed to imply that we just thinking ingress niantic in any way official and like yeah like obviously there's a number but it's actually Nicolini I don't know why they fit in there maybe because the numbers more well known but the actual location isn't insularity absol- Laity the hope is that we'll both be there so we'll actually have are very very I since I've been part of the show anyway age and Academy Mita I don't know why but they're actually to Ambriz in if Cellini owned by the same people doc I'm hoping I'm hoping works out we're still working on some detail so it might not but that's the hope at this at this moment but I wanted to get the Michigan there as well so it'd be we put stickers on his you cannot put stickers on the van you can not do that but has gained by redeeming cards or codes and you can see how much aid that account has from pay and how much they have okay but I'm sure NIANTIC already investigates all the things like if they just have I I'm posting pictures of ingress accounts that they believe are Spoofer base yeah based on their badges and stuff like love to plug in every single you know never rending code like right I've never act something I think unlike the niantic themselves kind of have that like flagged I I I would like to think that that's flagged a two cards if there that's that's legitimate gameplay you are allowed to go ahead and buy things Blake in case it does anyone who's trying to get emission approve knows like you can't just submitted like the day before and hope it goes yeah so I got it before then it wasn't really hard to meet up because you need a whole of lake next door so right over here to do the show made it he's Mo mo thugs so he doesn't so he probably would give it to me but I would already have it too so but he made both A- and yet you're traveling the world to just explode certain specific portals like yeah I'm kind of I'm GonNa play this but I'm also trying to work on the badge at the same time for the website you would think having an extra couple of days it would be did you know those things in isn't wrong it's suspicious but yeah but I don't know yet does not play ingress but if he gets a code there he may put it into a scanner just because though the the last novel for the L. One three three one x meet up I bought like a I get like a card with that but like went to me with he he gave me his card because it came with it was loaded card that came with capsules at the time within their right and his stance or he has some stance Z. I don't know it's there's always like that situation naive I might be naive no I don't think you are I you know it's like one of those things like so my son's going to be gone with me to Chicago in like I'm always trying to I'm trying to pl- Yeah I always try to play devil's advocate for like the Super Casual player best everyone done hurt goes with the go go I dunno environmental thing that so and so it's it's kind of a thing people are already doing that they're kind of trying to investigate like okay how could someone don because I thought it was done I don't know if I'm busy busy it's fine anyway here Ada do Jay obviously have other stats but if I was a level one and I think too like if you're a level one but you know enough way up high for the

So the trigger do Tuesday. So this doesn't get buried by the UFC fight island five day we're also getting. A more an ESPN analyst. So it's GonNa be a long day and I had imagined no one's to want to watch a podcast students are immediate is on. So bring this day early but no one cares about me. We want to talk to people who are gonNA guest on the show of course case allow it on the ones that Jews producing over an Englewood is of course up to good, Englewood? And the man of the hour, the one that I was very to bring back the tallest man made media gear may crews all the way in Brazil. You did the last spot island trip I'm doing this fight island job. I'm still in Abu Dhabi. House live. Cash, that. I cared see I do not doubt that it is about six thousand degrees over here. My phone is already the overheated twice second time. It overheated my sim. Card Fried now. I without a SIM card all the way in. and. I can't get a new one delivered because we can't get mail for the next three weeks but. Regardless, we want to hear from the people. Casey. You know the drill if anyone wants asks questions, they can ask on twitter. Asks on the site, they can leave the youtube comments. Of course, Casey's monitoring for fun questions anything and everything is up for debate. Casey, what is our first question? Just seeing if I'm focus. Hopefully. I can read these this time. I got some reading excellent Abu Dhabi Wifi. That's true. Reading is over I don't get. I don't get. That's just lovely narrate narrations. She reads our here we go. First question. First question hopefully, I read this, what do you think from Terence? Leverett on twitter follow mispronounced your name. What do you think of the idea of people using submission underground as a way for a cross promotional match or match between a champion and contended for example, rose or beaver has hams at. If you it would help build future fights to I think he's as well as tag the side so. What do you both think possible cross promotion fights or is it fights? And submission underground Chelsea submission only. Promotion, which is still holding events in the middle of the pandemic guy. He's been holding events, all the pandemic star what do you like the idea of these either egg cross promotional fights or matchups between way classes that we won't get to see actually inside the octagon. Yeah I love that. I HAVE NOT TSA submission for years before focused on on on an here I am a fighting and I I. Love. When you've got A. Big veteran. Fight each other and submission events. I don't know how much that helps. Like let's say Michael Chander Waning Bator fights. Some awfully obscene submits him. How much does this that goes up India Mate World As a as a fan, I had to see that so I'm always in. Case what do you think you've covered all array of martial arts day you actually train you know a lot of fires belts, wine in rise in PF L. All these time. What do you make? What do do you like the idea of cross promotional matches or even matches between classes to build fighters in the USA or any promotions matter of fact yeah, I won't out I would. After. Z. Destroyed. Kosta in. Of course if it was possible. Yeah. In a couple of weeks I would love to see is he versus Kosta in a submission match why not I? Mean? This is just this is ridiculous. Fund is completely different sport and Yeah just and let all of the sea like mismatches to like Like to see. Who is like a like a grab I'd say like Holly Home. Versus a McKinsey Dern is you just like? Just like why not? Destroy Rahmani favorite McCain's already faced. Already submitted Gabby Garcia. 'cause we're never going to see those in Ma. So why not this is it's fun. Doesn't mean anything hopefully, the fighters will get some money now I, don't know how much money there isn't a sport sports. You just do like that. Especially Um, for enemy fighters coming over but. Yeah it's I don't think it really means anything as far as if we're doing goof if we're doing goofy sizes against goofy sizes, I would love to see like Ben Rothwell against like Charles. Oliveira. Something outrageous. But then mother was actually good. You think of someone I was thinking the tie to tie to asa versus. Charles Bronze Olivera something like that. Zach. Just like a guy, just not more known for his jujitsu versus a much smaller person. whose number riot off versus. Psyche yeah exactly. Thank you. Ronnie. Ronnie. Adverse Broccoli. Eisner. Make it happen. To. Be. The most of just thinking about that would be the most ridiculous thing just the most und- under unimposing. Fighter I've ever seen in Roddy I ever since brock listener whereas job shortly towards on a bunch of times. Obviously, he said he'd trained whenever he trains. Roddy is he just feels demoralized at the end of every practice like he was basically drowned for like hours on end and then he just feels so frustrated as leaves practice also I would love to see you love to see maybe we just got this one. Tony Ferguson all Tony vs overdue. That's. and. You'll pay where we know how this ends keyboard, Warrior Angle bic. Why why waste time I'll keyboard warrior. Nice try we all be. Angle pick. All right. So I think the answer is. For Mr lover. Leverett it is fun. I don't know how much it actually means but. Mansa me. Numbers mighty masses the real money. I mean to mighty mouse versus brock listener. Yeah this is. Anthony Johnson vs mighty mouse. It just everyone. Your bigger than mighty mouse, which is everyone. Yeah Basement. Matt want to get a little shoutout for. Chris is friends with a bunch of acid suggesting a crystal grew what Jessica too many S.'s. Jeez I had a lot of conversation shocked about. Crystals. Year. Nabi Chelsea CPR team is a firm believer. I'm sure you know Steve The security guard that is one of the most imposing man I've ever met seen in my entire life. You know the the Big Guy Yeah British, Guy, Security Steve She's she tried to sway him into believe in crystals easily the guy I also believe in Santa Claus and buddy, and he just walked away and I was like, damn man was cold. He's a believer he just in the now. Go he doesn't like to say here. We. Go. From. Kooning guys on Youtube comments hello. Gooney Guy Sierra short time short time commenter. TATER. That means but question what is your hipster wise favorite fighter like the fighter who is kind of underground? You again, what is I don't quite know what that means like what's our hipster wise favorite fighter Casey do you have a hipster? Wise they're fighter. Seems like put a lot of thought into this and I have no idea what this question even. Why I wanted to say Ryan Hall I mean I think that's what he's going for something like ballet answer for you. You're a big Loma loop. Yanni, by Oma Doma fabric. Such a fan of her she's got signed by the UFC and I forgot her name she was the. New, industrial way jam, the new one. I can't forget her name. Japanese wrestler girl. Came remember. So is this just a fighter that where a big fan of that? Not a lot of people know that's what? Said I was doing when he mean by that like who do I like this? Not Cool to be into. Oh, you know what free I'll say right now he's find this weekend. Ben Rothwell love. Ben Rothwell. He's he should be the one up. Okay why hasn't Been Roth? Okay. Who is the CO main event last week? Just some. Yeah, Castro and Been Rothwell much more famous fighter much more well, know much better. He's is he on the card? Is under the goal. Which is? Yeah Ben. Weather that's my that's my hipster. Wise Sabre fighter. WHO's in the Coleman event at some Barbosa. Marquand Americana that fight rules talk now but bin. Laden. Both those guys been while and anti-bear are both higher rank them are Boza and American any. Yet but. My scene subur- has been in some. As I call table flight. A lot has been in loud table flights. I. Don't know if they won't put that mccomb event Barboza. Putting the main event. Last week math. Yeah. Hey. What did I say in the preview show all the heat for rule you say. So much our next question. That's what I see how. Rule so much. It's going to be guaranteed by nonprofit. The only one that said that by the NBA stinkier I gotta heat four one. At that was pretty much assume that by was going to be a stinker. Let's. that. Made it past thirty seconds you're there on the. Go Watch the preview show. I'm pretty sure I was the only one that said that actually no, I'm the only one this anyway what's the next question? Actually WHO's part? You're a big fan of that not a lot of people. I mean a lot of people know him, but he doesn't find that upsets. So people sometimes forget about him growing basie. That's winning. Never. Ever ever talks about him so. While it's really answer I know breads Mitchell, call them out. I would've loved that fight sorted Burns. I was shocked when Chrome Gracie one on Arizona's card February. They didn't stick him on the same card a man who has recalled Pennington that was in Brazil is a few months later I thought Chrome Gracie in Brazil was. Made. Too much sense. Yeah. The he wasn't we really into the idea. In Fighting Donald. as at some selects passive for someone should USA finding? Brazil. The desire money so Maccabi. Would he be a really big deal in Brazil if he fought. Yeah. She doesn't real. Because, his father lives here Just A. Few miles away from the arena. So it would be a big doing coupon here on the one. That's a lot of gracie gyms in Rio that would sort out easily for him. And you know Hickson would be there which would be even more special. Let's make it. Happen I know even as I see training but I don't know if he has fight yesterday ruin two, thousand, twenty, five Saturday. Go make it happen. CanNot. CanNot go murata that's divider I'm thinking of she's just got signed the UFC. I think she's finding Livia Sousa. Libya Round Sousa Real. Yeah. Didn't stews a call out Mackenzie darn. Times. Think. Everyone's caught up. He's just finding in yeah. It'd be excited number one Harry Potter Fan. You'll see Lavinia. Souza. Up on five. I. I I didn't have the heart to tell her. She said that after she wanted to go to Disneyland and as. Right a Harry Potter the that's Universal I don't WanNa break your heart. Is probably going to cost. US fought in Vegas was she probably went to California they don't even have universal. I guess boy. Close. Neck hasn't opened up yet I had a season pass universal I don't use it twice. Shock and then the lips and even the lives pandemic messed up my season pass. Thanks libs. So, happens. Once. I Donald her only once election happens all the theme parks open back up again or go. Yeah. Yeah. said that British her Tito Ortiz just said that to A. Great my thing like. I. I was going through this one their. Did from Kaiser did follow cost loses man card after being dry homes by out of Sonya his win. Now we'll. We'll use this as a way to talk about policy cost in general I was talking with some of the Brazilian media here. And they said that Paulo costume was like compared to the current UFC Brazilian champions Figueredo and demanded Nunez even just gonNA drive before she lost her title a lot of other popular Brazilian fighters that they really got behind. Paulo. Kosta mostly because it was he lived down there and it was the same belt that Anderson had it for so many years. So they've really got behind Paulo and then when he lost they kind of turned on him a mostly because of how he lost his game plan has reacted to is this true and house. So how is he viewed now in Brazil says loss. Yeah if if if you wanted the belt, he would have been like. Eastleigh them the most fighter in Brazil. Most. Of a champion seed Sanderson Silva probably. Beat, name. I have friends that that has a youtube channels and the always say that you do have to do with the cost. Is. It goes viral. Does allow. Than any other Friday talk about. And, of course his. His Very his he's a fan of our president. which I don't even say his name. So he had a lot of haters show because of that before they find, he was doing a lot of jokes on social media and. And the of course. Beckham bags at him after the loss after what easy needs him After the we. Unsolved. A lot of haters softwash suffer a lot online. Him. He brought down to himself. Is that the no. That In Brazil is Costas seen has how Kobe Kobe Kobe cutting Tennessee over here has just just. Just, a character just really embraced idea of. Basing his identity on who the president is. Not that much because go bay talks about trump in having each of hit us and best that's not the case trust doesn't. Doesn't talk about it. S To my body. So. They have a similar deals, but they don't act the same in the median. But it's interesting for your the Brazilian president. Is Co cost is that kind of his I like very public endorsement of fighter. Yeah. Okay. And and? Even. Before it was a precedent toes already. Well Why why? Casa in general why him in because I know other fighters other Brazilian fighters have supported your president Why? Why cost? Why was he? The one become a kind of the first guy? Do you know? I think because he wasn't that both train way way before your others. Okay. Social Media. So they just got France they they talk the time. WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE IS A. Fan. He's always a meeting fighters saw. Cinematic. One, hundred, seven, eight. I. That Like similar to hear like our president likes various specific TV stations in. He'll talk negatively towards other TV stations in similar to Brazil obviously but from what I've heard in. Brazil. He dislikes certain outlets so much or like vice versa that if say Palo had gotten a call from your president while on air with while he was doing being interviewed on one of the stations that your president did not like they'd have to cut the feed or they would have to cut that out of the broadcast. Is that true? That's a chance gusts. You've see on global. Congressional. Global, combat is. Owned by global so I don't know how they. An Ex. But. In most doesn't like. He doesn't like people that that that are are quick. So. If you're talking about. and. He he only likes that TV stations down ignore effects and just okay he's a credible seek of that self. Your global, I don't know how they would handle that. That's interesting. Well, it sounds familiar. Yeah I don't. I don't know TV stations would cut colby COVINGTON's. If anything they would want that to be on the TV because that would increase views. I don't know if they'd cut the feed in the middle of a call. But I digress. Thank you for the White House a good question. Oh, before we go to the next one, did I quickly gamay? Did you have a problem with Israel Sonya celebration? It wasn't necessary but I don't have a problem with goes. I think he was. I. Ball Costa this. Moved align so so so so some postal promise so that what is it did not something out of this world now? Right. Casey. Oh if if he had done that to say. Kelvin or Anderson Silva or Derek. Brunson. been like, Hey, man that's out of line by think with the trash talk dot Kosta brought to that fight. It made sense. So. It didn't come out of nowhere. It didn't come out of nowhere. It was it was directed at well, he's always directed at. But there was a reason he wasn't. It wasn't just a celebration abrasion sake. Cost US it was a treaty means. Easy on a body. A lot jokes on that sense so you can't complain supply that. Then, all the fighters like ESPN analyst that we interviewed. At the Media Day, like Dan Hardy is very I'm sure you've talked hard enough time. He was very much traditional martial arts like he's all about respect and honor and all that and even he's like I didn't like it. But I get it follow cost to push the to put into a certain edge and you didn't have. The general consensus was I wouldn't have done it but I get why is he did it? So I don't hold it against it. So I. I kind of is when I saw thousand that I didn't know about it and then I was like well, that's probably not a good look for the sport and then I thought about it more and I was like well, I mean, follow the deadly himself any favors so probably Stop of the week in Brazil. Drilling. Man, that's got an annoying. Pasta. Sorry. The biggest stops here. Always lot of jokes lot means you. Such is life. Yes and then if Cananea wins going to be the exact opposite 'cause is in cannon really like each other because I think it's going to be more like a friendly banter back and forth between the two. Trade crystals after eight if he Still gotta get the Whitaker, which is no easy task. Anyway what is our next question. Which? Cost One more thing is. Just everyone. Is there a possible way that fight could have gone worse? I'm actually say like literally try to name like biking gun wars other than causes rape crying. was worse than album goner way where sears. The only way it could have been worse is if when he clipped him with the I, think it was the left. Hook and then went Palo Kosta when like down is punching him imagine if Izzy, the white ball just snatched up his neck in Germanic joking Busy. After the white belt versus black belt. All Week is he just? Them tapped him out that would be worst case scenario for Paulo Kosta because he's the one that brought in all the submissions emissions emission talk but didn't go didn't is he basically pitched a perfect game and pilot didn't like when he every watched it like once or twice, and he warned twice Paulo as blitzing in he threw a kick and is just caught it or like moved out like was that was dumb you you clearly had him for like a split second then you let him get away anyway is he was side though to get. Busy guy gets the cage. I was like Oh. Here's here's his cost is time to shine, and then he's gone like all right now. Because follow through like spinning cake it's at a Russian in anyway. countered. They don't WanNa get counted. Era. From John Malkin on twitter, do you guys see any advantage to using gauges old kamikaze style versus new styles upcoming fight against Bieb? Because I think it would tire Habib out. I, think kate. Justin would be dangerous off scramble. So Casey, I'll start with you. Watched US, engage who for years you've watched for years if you're just engages coach Trevor Wittman I use trying to keep him focused like usual in these last few fights where he's picked apart as opponents en route to a Tko or K. win. Or do you just let him be himself or I should say or do you go for more aggressive approach as we've seen in find success tree you. Know I disagree with the suggestion that gay just go crazy because he goes crazy. He Wo get taken down and they said, of course Justin is GonNa be dangerous off the scrambles but that Burns a lot of energy we have be. Most. Famously did this against Abel Trujillo where I think he got like I dunno forty take downs or something, but they keep up forty take down that means. was like twenty, one and. He knows it was it was insane. But with that means is though he got taken down Twenty Times Habib only really needed one take down around he kept down but he wanted. He wanted to punish him. So that's why take him down. Let him back up taking that and that's burned so much energy for the guy getting up and it just kills it just kills your mentality your confidence. So if gates you went in there, kamikaze style. He'll be he's too good. He'll be ready for that and he'll take him down and. And Justin Justin still a human. He's still going to get tired. He's still gonNA. He still needs confidence in that fight. So no, it's going to be a very strategic smart gauge in there don't know who wins, but the kamikazes doll will not work against heavy. In my ear are you in agreement? Yeah. I at the with against the Adm. Industry. In He's yeah. I, agree to sway to good. So I'm not saying he's becoming heavy but yeah, it's a great. Has. All the tools in findings, marks and all. This fight is so intriguing most most everyone. I've talked like the ESPN analyst and everything all seem to agree that this is the toughest fight that could possibly have and I know everyone wanted to see the Tony, verbs and fight which, of course I, want see still wanna see those because that. There was all the history, the records and all that stuff. But I always kind of thought in the back of my head just gauge just be a tougher fight just because he presented more problems for Habib rather than twenty. Ferguson. At Habib's seems more like top pressure versus a bottom fighter, and I'd just like that matchup but Habib is I mean just gauge basically A. A buzzsaw. With. Knives at the end of it with an unlimited car with unlimited gas tank. So Super Interested in that fight but that's still aways away seems taken about that fight. To remind yourself not to get too excited yet. By the F. I. S.. Yes. I, do. There's a fight that we don't. We're not even talking about that's the weekend before that I haven't even let myself get excited for. Talking about. The whole we're not gonNA talk some mystery behind the poster guy. When the poster for the main event of UFC fight island six got released. So many people are telling me and it'd be a it's real. It's happening I'm like. Shut up everyone shot up and go like, go lock yourself from the room stop talking about it. As and your dolls wrapping bubble taping hopefully, they make it. Wait nece injury for is going to be all. for the island six. Yeah Nelson even freaky like like he like he fell asleep in the bathtub and got second degree burns or something or like he locked himself in his hotel room and can't get out something bizarre. That's how bizarre the situation is. I'm thinking he's taking a walk on the beach and then. Dana why riding a jet ski flies over a DOC IN HIDDEN? It'd be some kind of jet ski accident. A man. I was at I was when I was a beach yesterday, you said Salal in. Brandon Roy Grell were getting trying to get Shaked down for like a thousand dollars for like. I don't know if it's thousand dollars. Like damaging the jet ski and they were like we Jetski they were. Arguing back anyway what was that question that popped up case new question From good aengus again, opinion about Americana who was finally getting more visibility against veteran Barbosa. The finish in the AFC. I can't see the bottom of it 'cause cutoffs. In the UFC. Oh Boy Still Ucf Finland you'd think he can finish. To ends like in Finland again bar. Boza. Well, there's going to be a UFC Finland for quite a while just like this be unfortunately Bella towards holding on unfortunately, I should say, good good on. The ballot is holding the first ever major promotion of event for major promotion in. In France and I know if C. wants would love to break ground there but fortunately the pandemic happening right now they're basically relegated to yeahs island or Las Vegas at the moment but I imagine when the pandemic is cleared France would have to be near the top. Let's place they want to go on for Marikana keeps winning than shirt. I'm sure they'll go to Finland about Gamay He's of course, my quantum Arikan is Facing one of your fellow Brazilians Edson Barboza, talk about Brazilian legend. Yeah feel like he's been fighting forever I mean house we were just talking about what see one, forty, sixty, other day Casey that all heavyweight card and the best fighter that night was Jamie Varner. Barbosa Jamie Varner came back and kind of halted the hype train for Edson Barboza very momentary. But gave me what do you think of? EDSA. By boasted might WANNA marry Connie? Five That's such a fantastic match I love this mattress I just got off the phone with. Three hours ago. And Kim just. Can wait his such a pleasure styles I can choose to see if I'm if I'm greg against the Dow in getting closer was not easy with all the kicks and knees and He says striking phenomenon saw. He he against the more they can say practice round it's not easy task but he he he was taken before by greengrass. Yeah. I wasn't be surprised with the Heaven I'll says. Yeah can't wait for part for this once matchup sewing trading. Out is but Brazil, view ads in our Region? It was good. But what was originally was the original matchup? Barbosa and Use Use. Yes. That's right. That's a good fight sue. Yeah. I would say the winner should just whoever wins just book against the CDC USA. How does Brazil you Imbaba see popular down there. Not that much. If people know him cuts obvious. Halid was incredible but he's not that. These been living in the states along. We have a lot of the FCC is. To stand out Okra the like one hundred five. This salon people beginning started buzzers. If you're not a tandem. Ninety. S to become a real star. See Figure Elon. All that stuff, what are you Casey to be? Brazilian star do these Brazilian fighters. Of if they're. Not. Champs. Do. They need to train live in Brazil. As. It just helps you. Thousand would cost to be the same star if he trained at ADT or something, I, don't think so. Yes. But. I don't think so because. His dies of the Brazil are so strong that people can. Ten July more than just in the US because we had a lot of Atlanta products leaving the US. What they don't get a glosses the baggage. Crazy nagase his good-looking his he looks like a Brazilian. But. By leaving Brazil been definition. Costa's good-looking that why Josie is that what does Aldo is so revered down in Brazil because he did I heard it took forever to even move out of his hometown is like home village or town or whatever I'm not quite sure what it was, but he lives there for a long time, right? Yeah. YEAH HE LIVES IN A. Real for a long time. But he leave the neighborhood less not great. He hit could afford to live in a better place just didn't care you know. He. told to a good place next Jim after years ago by before that, he was leaving apartment that. Was Champion dot for something big better but he just didn't care. No. He just took the subway to get to the gym drink and back. While We love to see anyway back to the original question Casey what do you do you like American versus Barbosa Yeah, actually, I think this is a great match up I heavily favored. Rob. Barboza in this match I thought Barboza beaten I thought it was very competitive I. I don't think it was A. Robbery. But I did think Barboza won that fight and Yeah. So I think Barboza's ranking right now is you have see ranking isn't accurate I think he should be I actually I think his anti-gay he's like top top ten at least. But wherever I think I think Barboza is. potentially a top five featherweight. and I think this is GonNa be a bit of a showcase fight for Barboza and. I love. Connie and. I'm a big fan of him I just don't think he has the tools to be Barbosa, but we'll I think it's GonNa be just just a just a combination of the end zone, Bar Bosa Dan Hooker fight in Milwaukee. was at that fight when Ed's in just peace Dan Hooker one of those uncomfortable fights I'd seen in a long time like Dan hookers. Body basically gave out for his mind about, and then the just remembering ashamed burgos is beatdown of Americana and Madison Square. Garden where was like the same thing we're Marikana just kept fighting kept fighting till his body just stopped working ashamed burglar's just put it on him. So just with those two thoughts vides fresh in my mind I heavily favored by both but I Also get to take. Your. Plus Americana still has the Best D.. Best apology photo out there. And Barboza, and also another advantage for Barboza. He will be fighting in the big octagon and for fighter boasted that that needs. He's best kicking range. He needs he needs them distance. So I think another thing that's that's GonNa be to his advantage so. I can't wait to hear like kicks inside an empty arena. It's GonNa. Be Brutal Anyway Stick Estate Exit for another question in English. The main event. Just my two cents just rides braise versus San. Hagen. The bunch exclamation all that and everything and hey, get. What do you guys think Santa Hagen. San Hagen. guess what do you think of the main event? Obviously another Brazilian in the main event for you Corey San Hagan I was not the first choice had in mind for apostle. Marez matchup I think we were hoping for either his obviously. You could fight you on future Yang Yard signed a contract and fight him in Kazakhstan you beat Josie Aldo who got the title shot against John You still number one. But if you didn't get that was over cody garbrandt. People dominate groups. I don't think he'd ever fight Frankie your because they were teammates for a long time. Champion but. I still love this fight. But what do you make of the main of which mammaries Korsantiya? Nor the other. Way? Five. But I was so confused by when by my choice so. I think he's agreed by I. I would say we're model on it, but a is so weird is coming up a win over judge Aldo he has a win over. has a brutal over that guy that go to just fought me. Lawsuit Sober. Math. I mean it doesn't work doesn't exist, but it makes water. So confusing. But it's GONNA fight, but it's not a my. Direction go to. Yeah I think marlins trying not to be the unfortunately Edwards at stuck in like that high ranking place. No one wants to fight him that make sense. It doesn't WANNA fight down I. Think Marlin might want to just avoid that situation and you can't argue with Winston can't argue with wins losses now. Just, find wherever they they they they put in him so just to make money. And Didn't get a tight shot. Just, they make money and finances you will one day they're going to. Or not, and if he if he wins in Algebra and Sterling Beads Peter, Yawn, I mean that that the fight the rematch has to happen our Momma raised head kicks. Sterling into the next level like he did the dad when he fell down what? was there. Then probably Saturday and the. Does anything but they'd yet. So who knows? He's GonNa how how long have to wait until that happens Dan he gets out of shot. So so confusing maybe monitoring One time. He. Had to fight again before getting shot. Yeah. I. I have a feeling. We might be back in fight island, January or February. it might be something similar to how like Israel of Paulo Kosta was late September, and then when it's late October. Review. The end of January I wouldn't be surprised if that kicked off the next fight island thing then but this is just all. So, just make sense. Dominick Cruz on this card and There are. Plenty. I really want Dominic groups, Frankie editor though selfishly. Like it is and I think marlins should definitely fight on the undercard of Algerian Peter Yang especially if that's on fire island I, don't know who he fights, but I think they would have. Definitely, put them on the same card unfortunately. Cody garbrandt dropping. down. To flyweight. And who knows where crews and Frankie are right now. Casey your thoughts on the event of course Antagon- Former. Ho, Co host of the a side. I know that's why I felt bad saying this because I think Marazion Mariah's is gonNA put a pretty heavy weapon on San. Hagen. Unfortunately I think. I think actually I think. When he fights at his potential I think he's the best bantamweight in the world. I also feel that way I think But but what I like about this a lot is we're taking out we're taking out. pseudo. In running retired but I think actually I think is best bantamweight in the world I think this is a smart thing a risky but a smart fight for Mariah's he needs to stay active his name out there. He can't become Liane Edwards and just kind of. Unfortunately. I mean I understand what Leon's doing but is he just can't sit and wait for that title shot to come even though he he deserves it he literally had a signed contract if i John. Already but some reason that bite was contract was ripped up even though it was just I don't get it but but more importantly I think it's important for Mariah's because. This is a five rounder and. He needs that five around experienced and hopefully, if he doesn't, if he doesn't beat Corey within the first round, he can can really tested. test is cardio in the championship browns because. We saw what happened in these two who to fight and obviously. Just, didn't have that championship level experience. And you just kind of you know quote unquote blue as load. You know I'm sorry ugly. I think he just had one. Before that was als- on some fight. It does that went only one round, right? What's your finding days as well? Right which is a Friday was books for a lot of there was a change of yeah. Yeah I think but I was a championship fight at at at a higher level competition and works yeah and I think he finished him within the first two rounds to so he didn't have a chance to go into the championship round. So maybe you San Hagen, it will give him an opportunity. So Hey, man I'm saying, Hey, good wins good for him. Man I I. Loved Me Wrong I love to be wrong. If. Looking I'm looking through his record right now. He's fought. Josh reading. House. All five rounds at world series of fighting nine. And that is his and then he fought Josh Hill world certified in eighteen. All five rounds. And those are the only two fights on record to get past third round. He has a lot of thirty three. Ron Wins. And a lot of one and two round wins. But yeah, only two five. Only. To complete firearm fights, unders, Bell, both of the world series of fighting banner and the one of them was in Edmonton Canada. and. He has trained with for since that was a five round fight, but he finished in the first round so. Cocoa and then looking at the looking at the bantamweight rankings like periods champ on the Marlins won and then Marlon has a win over outs remain WHO's number two's probably GonNa fight periodic cody Garbrandt at three it's going flyway he's fighting Koi San Hagen at number four frank. Yego is former teammate knock fighting page ammonia was a six just lost the Franken number seven Josie Albemarle beat him number eight Gene Rivera head kicked him number nine I. Guess. Censor their one one correct. But does anyone wants to fight in two, thousand, twenty, one or two, thousand twenty, and then I'm GonNa ten dominant crews so like I would love to see by Dominick Cruz or Frank Giger, I don't think he's GonNa Fight Frank and I imagine Franken dominant crucified then who's Left Rob at eleven? Maybe. Just. Running back although. I like that. Don't tease me I would love that or if you're. Floating around there. Knows there's a lot of five knowing Danny WanNa see that fight not really. But I think we kind of glossed over real quick was ise sterling is supposed to fight yawn. So for some reason that isn't official and I think there's a reason for that and I think that reason is this Saturday night I don't know why. If mariah just smokes corey maybe you have doesn't maybe. For some reason I. Wouldn't shock me to me. It just sounds Perla now. It's I think a personal just beef that behind the scenes with Sterling in the AFC. This is all speculation. Because it just doesn't make sense why is not booked but the only reason that I could not be book is because maybe they're waiting to see what happens Saturday that's my only. Reason. Maybe, that could be it might be a stretch. I know just moved to Las Vegas to train. So I, know he's getting he's gearing up for something. Why why why is that? Why is that fight official? Your Anthony, the the the US or you can put. On. Find again. I think they would just want him on. Flight Island. To play them. Yeah. 'cause if it can't find the US they, they just cannot satisfy us. They are no. Events. Book for again. We don't know when they're going to go back. And Algebra Sterling tweeted something about like It was when the Gilbert Burns whose men fight was like officially accepted for December twelfth. And Sterling three like Hey I'm ready. Let's fight on December twelve computer yawn tweet responded. I the UFC has something else plans to hold up on my ends. I'm just waiting for the contract. Yeah. It was something along those lines, but he said the hold of is not on his end. So I, from what I gather Peter Janas still getting ready to browse ministering to. Anyway. A lot of he sheds see shed. Thank. You just my two cents to the question. Gaza versus Brunson who would win wet question who would win thank you for the livestream. You're welcome. Antonio Garoppolo. Paulo Derek Brunson has been calling Apollo Kosta relentlessly on social media. Don't hate the fight I. personally would really like Kelsey, Calvin gasoline follow cost to fight i. just think that fight is an also fight but Derek Brunson's and ossified to there's a lot of fun fights at middleweight right now seems to be one of the few divisions that is moving along. But Gamut do you like Pol cost versus Derek Brunson who would you favor fight? Yeah I think that's. That will be the best option for for the right now on s is they began but that. That would be better I think. That's what ball. Team is pushing for Dan till, but he would love it. If she was. Doesn't appear until matched up with Jacker Manson I believe December fifth yeah I have to believe yeah. To believe. Is already wants jared cannon air. I don't know who the winner of till Hermansson I would not be surprised if they just waited for the for like the winner of Izzy and candidate because at that point. Jack Manson is being everyone not known jared cannon near put of most recently endeavor until is one wanted middleweight currently. So he beats jacker Manson I think he would probably wait for is e to or they would even bump jared cannon, your Ford Darren until who knows but Millwood is fun I personally think follow versus maybe the loser. Of Cannon Air Whitaker Loser till Hermansson Origins Calvin gas or dirk bronze look everyone topped N. also. Casey what do you think? Oh Absolutely love this I I wanna see Brunson Kosta makes sense. These are these are two fighters who are not going to be re matching is he anytime soon because both got there just they got just their asses handed to him by Izzy. So it's GonNa take a while for them to build up to a rematch versus he. So this is great I. Think I don't want but Kosta against someone like till Hermansson because those are all fresh matchups for izzy. So and Brunton Kind Brunson has been talking all sorts of just you know he's steroid cheat all that stuff for years now I feel like so yeah this fights perfect and I think it's I think stylistically is a great viper both them and I think it's an exciting fight and. You gotTa Give Brunson. Something big. He just had a main event knockout victory over ed mission. Bay. So he sh- Brunson's earned this fight too. So Yeah I. Love It. I. Hope it gets book. I think the wild card in this scenario is Chris widened because he might not be close to a shop, but he's still big name. Can we'll talk about that gasoline to can we talk about that Chris Wideman tweet doing what talk about that? The the tweet about known him you may math. No. Thank, Chris I. Like you dude. But it was not a good week. I was not a good seven days for MMA twitter in the middleweight division on. Across the entire top fifteen. Boy. Coach Ease casual fan hard eve casual hardcore fan is this just a casual Edwards I hope so. Since Ferguson versus poor it isn't happening is l. cuckoo versus Charles do Bronx. The fight to make I mean I like it I. Doubt Tony Ferguson takes about really like. I think there are going to. Focus on gender probably but Is Five. Percent China's talking about this longtime imagine those. Would be insane. This insect just a mash up of bodies tangled up in the ground in huge. Yeah. I love dead. On a submission event. You Go There you go that very man that opens up like the whole beat like A. Brazilian Jujitsu versus like Tenth Planet and all that stuff. You get all my God that's going to be chaotic for sure. There's no Ju Jitsu is very call Colty when it comes to tenth planet versus be Jj. Casey will. Like you could hear my IRA. Man, but do bronx like. Every way class. That that fighter that's incredibly good. Probably than we even know he is yet no one wants to fight him I think do brought lake. He's almost Leeann Edwards like you don't or you don't WanNa buy words because he no, he's that good but. It's The fans don't really recognize it and I think that. broncos that guy that's he's so hard to book. Yeah. So dangerous and he's not GonNa do anything for you if you went. Important hundred percent. Yeah and I mentioned this before guys like Arnold Alan and like Josh Emmett Fall into that category or like. But Neil Dare Uson. Islam Akayev or Islam. Maybe not as he has be back than I honestly thought Yamba home which was in that same boat for a long time, and now he's the champion but he just worked his way all the Neil Mag Neil magnet welterweight is the same way like they're just so good and they do nothing for you. Yeah. And like I say. Jobs Bras. What is thirty yet right he's like in his upper twenty s by now right? Something that. He's been in the. Is Early Twenties and he has like twenty something wins I. I think if he continues even halfway. His winning she has now he's got the most wins ever in the UFC. And he's the most submission women. Yeah like Neil. It's really weird how that happens. To anyone. In ten days to thirty one. Yeah. So he's hitting his prime. Yeah So I do if you told me Charlie very next year or two years from now is a is a lightweight champ I'll be like okay. I'm Olive Jolly Veritas. This is. SOC- July. August September October he's four months younger than Israel out of Sonya. Draws. All of their is he turned thirty one in July draws Oliveras during thirty one in like right around the corner. That's unreal. Unreal. So. Yes. Thank you for the question better. San It is the fight to make, but I doubt it will happen. Any Fi in the top ten in lightweight on the fan. Just glad rebel. I think Brad Redel is going to be one of those fighters that no one's GonNa. WanNa. Fight saying to. Got Anthony Fan coming. Here we go all the same same same INSEE eve casual hardcore fan. What's the better fights make? One Seventy Anthony pedestals, Carlos Condit Anthony Publishers Rob Lalla I don't really care about either watch Alabama. Don't really care for either of them I want the lightweight but honestly. Carl's communists huge compared to Anthony Patterson thing is it 'cause kind of one of the Taller Welterweight? Not Six. Two Yeah I got I got to stand next to Carlos. I watched them train for his fight against court McGee and who man. Watching Carlos. That's Kinda. Hit the pads if you ever get a chance. Oh, my guys he is this is beautiful. Watching him just hit. It also helps him Brandon Gibson's wave Lancer like the same. So they know exactly they've been training for so much I was chatting with Brennan for a bit before he left him He's like he was talking about the training camp stuff and he was also begin what which do you like better pettus condit or Pettus lawler or do you WanNa see Anthony cutters versus Anderson Silva. Twenty Five I. Why should Any. I thought Anthony Pettis would be a really great. Opponent on. I don't want to go after about more in all just. Just so guy wakes does sandwich seven way. Hazard. Those intentions shoot to make a toddler one service. Oh, just. Okay. So we'll go back to five. And he's not gonNA. Get any inequality to the belts that. I. was I thought versus Chandler would be good fight. And Goodbye. Malaysia, any any top ten guys? Was pedestals only Eddie. Pez Enterprise is one of the great resumes in the history of anime that you just look at his like string of opponents he's fought. Level of competition Oh. Yes. Insane. Yeah. Ty. It's it's unbelievable. Anyway, what are you saying Casey so? At Welterweight Anthony Perez. As a beat he beat wonderboy Thompson. A fight that I thought he was losing till you obviously one. Yup that's not that's not discrediting the victory I just. Didn't it wasn't a full on just you know he's he didn't just dominate from end to end he lost his nate Diaz. With Diego Fair fifty five right. When you went back went back down to the five gig affair whipped DIGA. That's another one of those Charles the Bronx guys guys who are incredibly good but no one wants to. Get hurt or does he have a fight or is he fighting go? Diego. You whip up Anthony Perez and he kinda go backwards again if I got Dover is just an Uber is very good obviously but just. Name value is clearly isn't Anthony pedals. Just. Can Ask for I thought Chen 'cause no one's GonNa, fight him. And then and then he looked on Party competitive victory over Donald Rony at one seventy. So Yeah Anthony Perez. At welterweight like this question should suggest I don't think. Any Carlos at one seventy. If you want to do more of a like a I almost legends league but yeah. Legends by it just a fun fight that no more video game fight you just Kinda oh, he's having fight. You know it doesn't remain very much more the rankings and stuff, but obviously means a lot to those guys in terms of brain damage but in terms of just fun. Yeah. Actually the lot of. Carlo Condit. Brown versus Carlos Condit Nick Diaz as Robbie lawler those are the fights I wanna see. Ya. Nick Meka. Music on included show be great to. On a percent either either either rematch Brennan the as I'm all in on. And I've been wanting to see nick is Robbie lawler rematch. So long literally mean esther would what when esther work there we would talk about and we will have why isn't this happening but it's never gonNA happen we'll never have. Nick Diaz, as that famous interview, think like fighting you think I wanNA get punched I Ravi lawless. From Yussef Desire I've yeah I've read I read this one. Given how disappointing your ice cream cannon choices are have you redeemed yourself by trying Arabic ice cream on the island? If you haven't please please find the time to you won't regret and then he coerced tagged Farah Hanoun. Honest. You gotTa Take Jose Bouza. I don't even know I'm not even try for analysis. So all answer do parts there's no we can't go anywhere. We're stuck in these hotels so I can't even go. Smaller anything to finds this mythical ice cream that people keep telling me about if was possible or if I had axed to, I would get also he tagged fair renewed them may junkie she also she's doing last for you of see. Abu Dhabi over here. She is so good basketball. If any of you if you guys know fair, I don't think you would realize that is really the basketball court out there. She man she is she's Nice like me and Oscar Willis or the life went up to shoot hoops Oscars the worst basketball player on the island. And I thought I was pretty good. No Way Man Fair was just like. She had like a Air Jordan shirt cross up like just from the fund, the L. Biles like good. God be the best player in hotel. She's nice though so shuts affair for piece of me up on the basketball court. And she just does good what she's been doing good work for. UCLA. W. All week. Earned they. Scream. It's not anything spin they have. I this is the same hotel you stayed at. The restaurant you have lunch is not a single time you're saying, right? We you're. You're you're you're you're you're saying which one? Crowne Plaza. Now at the same. Yeah, the hotel you stayed at is closed for. Renovations or something. Off figure it out I gotta get until. It's close. It's all. Scaffolding all over it. Partying. Hard. We you ruined. So you've never desire I apologize I can't get your Arabic ice cream anyway. Is there another question we up? Yeah. John Jones Israel outside questions I'm surprised. You know. There's lots of the Youtube comments we're GONNA do rapid-fire. Hitting our. So we're GONNA make him all quick share. Does, what happened at Costas Show why contenders main event fire on funds before they before they fight for the title from at Kiwi Enzi. Gisha should a contender have at least one, five round main event under their belt before find for title. The Hey dad. And I don't think an explanation whites causal loss you know just lossing surrounds competitive it doesn't mean about five months before what's the point you know he just lost he wasn't at the U. I'll he just went to five bronze and then he lost he got tired it wasn't the case. Bai's I would hate that. I. Couldn't content spending. By five bronchitis but I think that's why to us. I agree I think in a perfect scenario, the do get at least one, five mandate event under the bill. But I don't think any of us would argue that polycom Casa didn't deserve his number tender spot go never had a five. Yoel. vibe. Going three rows at Y'all Romero's go go twenty rounds on the normal human anyway. At the seaside whoever quicker comeback Dominic Reyes. Apollo Kosta. Wow interesting question. Probably because I think dominic raises knows was shattered so he might be out for a little bit. I don't know what the damage was on him. key. Who Do you think goes back I Requested Costume. Coastal. Casey. I never thought of this but man all that talk about cost going to five man you imagine his Kosta to a five. Acosta goes up on flight I like As far as successful comeback. Actually. Raise maybe cost him a successful comeback raised. I. Think Costs will comeback sooner just because I think riots took a lot of damage to the face. Yeah. Ribs and Ribs Oud everything about that. Yeah. I think I think cost it took the most damage. Competence wise is ego ego yeah. I. Think I think he got like that's a yeah. He got like Major. Yeah. That's he got hit hard. So I think he's GonNa Wind. Quick Jars got wasting time. Yeah I. Agree I. Let me go to the comments real quick. It's Back Pizza Carol the Irishwoman Listen I would love to have Pizza Carol back. I have never heard that report my life. That's the. Averaged seed that you to comets. Well done never well-done. Win This you win this episode of the. Best, comment in the history of. Bayside.

Yeah and thank you for watching was flavored back to a side can't wait to come back again. Kidding. I will keep trying to. Kill in Abu Dhabi it's been a grind but joy and I'll say that the beef between Israel to sign Jon Jones contest point I never liked see race religion or family brought into beef and they brought all three in and you know I like watching his rod to fight and I think John Jones with grazed fire walking planet Earth Right. Now, it just disappointed me all across the board I. Get it. They don't like each other. Still didn't like the direction trash talking, but that's just my opinion people ended up and it's getting a whole bunch Abe use but. To me out the just bummed. But with that, we'll be back.

Oh you've got to talk about so let's go ahead and get me and do jay out of the way. Dj What you've been up to as usual dude. A little feeling had to go shopping in which is an hour and a half away from me. I thought I'm not wasting that. So through about five layers over about half the cell. I don't think I made any of our players met that I know of and got it a little bit of a slight depression going. I forgot that we had a farm twenty miles away from our first Saturday. Forgot to charge it because Elsa charges on down to one L. A. over there don't yeah yeah I can travel forty five fifty miles and find find another one. So that's about all for me other than just work work and more work and I. I'm about the same aim I've been working a lot But I have just fielding on the way to work in on the way home. Haven't been able to get out and do extra stuff so hopefully hopefully this week I'll be able to get out there and really field up the place but I did. I haven't played in a little bit of destiny to at Night Afar. Go to bed. And last night I was in a thing they call crucible which is like a PCP match thing and lo and behold who is on my team but Red Solo Cup. And like I just. I was having a hard time like playing because they there's not really a good communication mode in there. That are found. Like there's no I can that I've seen and so I was like sending him messages on telegram. Hair you in destiny to right now And anyway he wasn't he he doesn't play that it so that way but it was interesting. I guess it's just a frequently used handle. I wouldn't think so but anyway like Red Solo Cups Right. The really liked song you can be Solo Red Cup which is what what he had to use on. Read it because Red Solo Cup was just some rando anytime that people were complaining to Red Solo Cup on read it. They were just complaining to somebody that had nothing to do with ingress understanding. was that that individual. At some point I think Andrew Russian and so why don't you just be like the Dapo Ganger like like. Why don't you do the job? So here's some standard answers to give out and that's it for you. You've got a lot going on so much. Have a lot going on through a bunch of Lore into the notes here but for my actual activities I go rock light events over the weekend so that is a six hour rock versus the twelve hour tough events which are like their standard mill. But don't let the light Monica full you. We had plenty of logs and other things that we had to carry. Actually that's is what is on my my hat right. Now is lean into the camera for those listening at home without getting you had to be at six hour appearance. Yeah so we cared. All logs dugs so many logs and then pretty much slept for the rest the weekend and couldn't move so I'm back to normal now but yeah that consumed a lot of time and then in between Iraq and trying to will my muscles to continue existing. I was just working on a lot of Puerto resets sets this week so Canada for some reason as a hotbed of spoofer activity I guess they were all growing north for the winter or like. I don't know what was going on there. But like to just working with a lot of agents on both sides of the fence trying to portal's reset that way we can fight back this tremendous so so these normally like portals that are anchors hard to get places or is it just run of the mill your local bar tavern portal. So good question actually. Hopefully we should have some official information at some point. We can kind of point to that is just like. Here's the list of criteria for a portable reset but I can share with you that with a portal reset. It's typically only reserved here for something that is harder to access would be limited during seasonal conditions whether that is whether or seasonal closures You know think about your hiking portal's anything that is on. A military base here is restricted access of some sorts. That you can't just run out anytime that you want in recaptured that port. Also we we try to reserve the special access portals or or things that have large monetary cost just to go and capture for resets So if I approached agent says hey we want to reset this the local pub. Sorry it's not GonNa GonNA happen you know. We can't reset portals that have had action taken by legitimate player since the spoofer actively because we can't undo you legitimate game actions so it's like a portal. That's in this time of year in a closed amusement park. You know we get that audible for the amusement park closes this. We know that they're not going to be open in January and all of a sudden it gets flipped. Is that the kind of thing you're talking about. Yeah pretty much like something where it's it's blatantly. Obvious obvious that that was spoofed. The SPOOFER got reported they got banned and then as soon as we're able to confirm that that occurred we submit for reset had those strategic portals or limited access. He's whatever you WANNA call them For Reset at that point. So it's not really the surly making the distinction of whether it's a spoof or not that has to happen first before y'all can do the reset yes currently we've got a pretty pretty much. Go through the hoops and all the red tape and say like hey. This account was reported. It was suspected of wrongdoing. Is this actually. The case was action taken against it and then if that holds up then we can proceed with the reset so absence of back and forth and information gathering and making sure that things are are legitimate for proceeding with the reset that we were not undoing. Actions that someone has legitimately taken. So what is the I. I guess I step. If it's like I think this has been spooked so if you have a difficult to reach portal that you believe has been spoofed going to trusted. Reporters orders is definitely the the first step in the Line of Defense. So I know a few episodes back we had mentioned that the trusted reporter program had been restarted We tossed both of the telegram bought. Id's the account ID's into chat somewhere on the show notes. But there's a account for the enlightening account for the resistance. Where if you have a poor let you want to submit saying that this was spoofed down and it's hard to reach? There's a process that you go through there as kind of the first step so it sounds like we need to make a complaint department on the PODCASTS website and results to links but explained that you know this isn't just 'cause I got pissed off because they took out. You know the six layers I guess through Bryan. It's it's a process that they have to go through. Do they also have to take the extra step to say Do do a reset or is that something that you guys. Just they would just consider do so. There is a question for it when you fill out the form through the trust to report about audit those ask. Do you want to request a reset of this portal So I have seen a couple before where agents were really concerned with resets They just wanted to see the action was taken against the Spoofer. But that's a case by case basis. Sweet thanks that's Great Info off the show but I don't think you were done. Oh there's a few wide array of ingress lower happening within the last week excited I don't know how many of you out there You know subscribe to all the Lord Tippett's I'll try not to go too over the top of heads here in and keep it more on the mystery narrow it. I think everybody is aware that our current Enu we both of the enlightened in the resistance is nemesis so so a character that was working with nemesis at one point by the name of Stuart Lightner had started leaking a few of the tech solution nation. Test pieces is physical. Drop so few you may have been following those Philadelphia had won. La Harun San Diego. I think Vegas is well at some point in a few others in other places in the world But this kind of all ties into the tech solution. In some extent and Stewart lightner. That specific character was actually out at the Sundance Film Festival yesterday in Park City in Utah and he gave a quick interview. Just kind of going down a few questions at Essex had specifically he was asked if there was was any information that he could share about copperplate which is a suspected. You will not suspect it. We've confirmed at this. Point is one of the NEMESIS OF VILLAINS ENDS OR WHATEVER YOU WANNA call in Nemesis Magnus News. This is pretty much always listening. So we don't know too watch about copperplate yet but that could be coming soon maybe potentially and then a few other good tickets that were offered there was that nemesis loves to feed US misinformation. So we believe that we know what the tests elation is actually for and and that could be potentially preventing exaggerates entities. So you're shapers zere from influencing our dimensional node which is called the Cyrus Cyrus note or for those of you that were from the twelve eighteen two thousand twelve through two thousand eighteen ingress twelve eighteen node In pretty much. We don't know what is happening with the solution but nemesis is kind of placing pieces on the test elation board and that might like not be worthy pieces actually have to go. So that was the little hint that Stewart lightner given everybody during his interview. So Lord as I'm sitting through here Malo being about that I'm like this is going completely way over their heads way over the heads. No keep going. I'm sorry I was actually trying to work on putting you on your own camera. And so that's why I wasn't like I saw I was like oh no is he gone. It's just me now. I do have one thing report. Jj Blaze did get the code. Already you make sure it was a nine eight eight nineteen. I'm sorry nine eighteen eastern time. So you know we always have to keep track of him. I'm trying to trying to give a little time to do the work I know I'm good. I was forget is ready. Yeah gone so so. What's next on on the lower jet so one of the big things that has kind of unknown at this point in time is is a artifact prime artifact called the undying silica which is potentially tied into a third exiled Eunice race so we have the shapers as we have the new year shapers for the enlighten is year for the resistance and we never potential third faction which was teased and introduced a little bit at the Previous Mission Day at sea events where twelve eighteen hang Johnson Early we believe potentially that it was the twelve eighteen Hank Johnson shots. And so you know both Hank not the not the scrawny hank was potentially looking for this prime artifact called the undying and Silica which may or may not be able to influence the test elation and was kind of teasing a little bit at this third exogenous faction so so we may get more eventually soon trademark kind of territory on that but something to keep in mind more lor is always good. I hope they do some more video like they did for the last you know round. Let's say That's interesting just seeing nice quality videos and some story evolve in that way where he you can just kinda watch it like a video and hopefully they'll do another anime season. Yeah I personally really enjoyed the the done raven videos and I I was able to at Navarro. Twenty eighteen actually talk with one of the producers for the media kind of breaking fourth wall. A little bit here but this being able to go to them and say like this stuff is great like please continue doing this and of course we got the done even series. That was really fun. And that kind of culminated in the CA- lawn events have got so close so close to the finalist round for colon but just didn't quite get there but Everybody that went out to that look like they had a blast and I really hope that they just continued doing events like that because it looked like a really good time thing I liked about those videos. They kind of had their self contained plot. So if you were following those videos you really didn't have to know a whole lot about lore or anything you he just followed just that plot and kind of keep track now if you knew the Lord. There was a lot of stuff there that that had added in. But yeah if it's an introductory is like what is this and then you could just follow and it was is really see that like they dropped media a month ago or a few weeks ago. That had had the video where the where he was explaining. You Know Kinda the lore up to date and so that was. That was a good catch up. I agree you know. We had the pack video that explained what the rules of the tech solution were in kind of a nutshell version versus the the long winded post on the forms which I think was a the benefits of agents. Yeah and or media with long media. We need media capsule. Yeah and there we go five days ago. They released to a bunch of videos like five years and I don't know if it was for the challenge but we'll we'll talk about that challenge in just a second and I think that's a everybody's week last call. Okay so let's move on to to some news and discussions and I think the first thing here is the wayfarer made some changes. Yeah it looks like they put in another way to report abuse another a lot of it at least in our area In the chats people talking about you know some of these wayfarer they are Submissions are just ridiculous. You know somebody puts in their foot. Are you know something. That's stupid is like that person that agent whoever put this and a needs to be accountable for that So maybe this is a response to some of that so They have a form that you can get to and you can find it. I thought aunt make knife a little bit easier so came up with a little bit late Lenk so be. It Dot L. Y. Slash opie are abuse opie are a all capital. And we'll plus that out so you guys get to that and what it is. It's just a google form for active way finders So you have to be away finder and you have to have your email of course when you submit it and what it does is in addition to giving that low rating in Opie are wayfair. You can tell them that. This is a offensive or abusive in the title Invalid Location It has a photo photo issue. I it's fake nomination and those kinds of things And I'm assuming then that they'll be able to take more action on that particular submission. I don't know if that means that they're going to kind of go back to the person that submitted it and Kinda give him a strike so to say But it does give you a way to Do More than just simply say this. Don't make this portal. That was kind of sorry to cut you off there good. That was kind offended by the there had been a few specific cases in I was involved in one of those cases just from the outside looking in where there was rampant vince abusive OPR from specific individuals that were kind of just flooding the system with low quality submissions. And even if they were getting flagged it was still. We'll just a high volume of low-quality subs coming in. And that's why the the form is there to to report those kind of special circumstances where you're noticing a pattern and it's just continuing to happen and it's just not helping anyone so and would it be. Would it be that if somebody has a history of that you know a history of abuse over and over and over again. It's going to make it so they can't submit. I'm trying to think of the the little blurbs that they shared about that mentioned something about like if you know this could restrict an individual's access to OPR. If they ah are found you know abusing the system. I think it does something along along those lines. There there used to be a thing. Where if you're rating dropped too low that you'd have to like take the quiz again or something is I wear? That still happens. If if you're rating falls falls below the threshold for too long but I. I don't know if you are enough. Unfortunately I need to do I need to do more of you are here. I've got on the on an hi antic page. What action will be taken on the report and they say once they received the report They'll review reported nominations than edits and other nominations and edits submitted by the submitter Player submitting a valid nomination. Edits may receive a warning was suspension or have their wayfair account terminated in case repeated offenses whereas submitter is not active wayfair. They're ingress of walking. My goeke cow may also be affected so And in case there were way spots are inactive and should should not have been approved may also investigate the way finders involvement and approval issue penalties severe severity of the offense and it looks like they might get some warnings or punishments for for that so and this is of course I guess you would say cross game because it's going to be something that would affect. Not only aggressors but those pogo players as well. This is kind of funny so I put up the wayfair screen on the livestream and it shows submissions around your area and this picture that I have right now is actually one that I submitted and now I wonder if I can actually go to. Where would it be? Would it be under nominations. You get turned down. It got turned down. Let's compare Allie boy spot. So let's see here's I got in a bunch that's in voting right now. I mean I would imagine that nomination would show up as a duke for kids so I I would hope it doesn't say rejected. I hope it it says duplicate there. It is man sitting on a bench. I mean there's no one in it. It's there's nothing around her. What do you mean Ariza another portable like within five feet? No no no. It's actually pretty far away this this other one that I have this one actually got approved like you can see that it's accepted actually got denied because it was too close to another portal so it still shows accepted in wayfair which I think is weird. I think that's something they could change to. Maybe put the reasoning if it's accepted accepted but not put into not valid so to say the portal network. It'd be nice and I think I've said this before if it was a system. Similar to what what. They have in geocaching that you know when you submit when you first admitted it looks at area and it'll tell you know you can't Mitt to clubs and just stops at that point right and like this one's marked the duplicate but it's not a duplicate there's actually two signs that are the same sign that are. They're fairly close. But I would say at least one hundred yards away from each other and so I think that's why someone saw it and yeah you see the other girl. That's deeply kid. And and now I could resubmit and put. Hey there's actually two signs you know scroll out and look on the map a little better and you'll see this one's over here sure that's a hard call to make especially if you're judging a portal based on just what you're seeing in Google maps and Google Street view. I mean there's Times Times that I've seen things I'm like well. This could be all new construction. And I'm looking at Google maps and you on that the Google maps data and the street stuff is like three years old old so this could have been new construction. But I have no way of knowing that. And you know it could be Albuquerque New Mexico. You know the ball into my lap so I got no way. Yeah no one and what are you gonNA do. What are you GonNa do you rated as a two and you go on right all right? So that's that's a good change and there's also where is it thirteen archetypes. What what are we have? What's this week's spiritualists and Ommission was the first I? That's what it looks like. Yeah looks like this one hit hit the stores on so I wasn't on yes so he wasn't Monday. Actually I guess it was coker you. Yeah and it was written by key. Click and tested by ran random. Isaac Zik Isaacs so last I looked at it. There is just about seven hundred solvers for it. So and and what's so we're gonNA read out all the names okay. Start with the first one. We'll just round robin this get real quick. Okay I'll do it in two words. You Ready Resistance enlightened ever done good oh great so have you all been doing you in any of the challenges not really A. I got a feeling that this last one was simple. Not Simple but it's pretty straight decoding. Is that right. I haven't even look at it. The first week killed me honestly like it. So frustrating to put so much work into something and then just be like. Oh I don't get involved because of a bug gay so now even if I complete the rest I can't go and then I got busy at work so it was a good excuse. Scouted it well and I don't and I don't have the tool so to say I'm I got a feeling that you know people said this decoding but this but this this and see if it comes out and evidently on this particular one they put it into the usual suspects this this. This didn't come out right so like oh we're actually going to have to work on this swallow and there's there's a a really good site that has a ton of different like decoding tools for all these different languages and then it's probably too late now. I started on it with the first because I was going to post the infant graphic with how to do it after it was released. The the solve But then I got bitter so both data page where we can post all these tools For decoding challenges. And there's there's there's been a sites in the past to help out with D- cutting challenges. Some of them are defunct. Some of them aren't updated so if we had a page at least that could point to those us as well as as some of the tools you can use now until telegram chats and things. I think that would be good. Yeah personally I haven't had the time to sit down and I know that I would need to learn a lot about the decoding so I just. I haven't had the earnest time to sit down and actually learn the proper way to do it so so eventually if they stay live for a little while I might be able to get around to learning some of them and and going through an actual challenging myself if we could just stop all the spoof irs. Then I'll get that time back code but I was just thinking actually. It's a good time to do this kind of stuff. Yeah because people complain about well. It's cold outside. I can't go out and do this. I can't let this is something you can quote unquote due on your couch. You know people do more off scanner and this never ending groups with friends. I mean you can make friends who are all interested in during this like I think this would. It'd be a very interesting episode if we could find someone who is really good at doing that. The Pasco Challenges in general in and come on and actually just having and it may not be a weekly show thing but like a special episode and go through the process of what is normally done to to figure out the the codes and I think if people saw that process instead of having to like try to look through forums and and sites and try to figure out like where do I just start just kind of seeing that process. I think that would help. So many people get interested in and start doing it weekly weekly or or how often released okay telegram. Chat people find us coder that can talk. We'll bring him on. I think that's our two requirements and talk. Candy Code will decode for money or something like that so Congrats to the people figure out. And if you want to get involved you can look at the show notes and get the link to the Community Post for art but you can also just go to the community. INGRESS DOT COM and looking to the kind of challenges Special events areas look for the spiritualist spiritualist are archetypes challenge. No find him. Also we have an update. Let me get this up there on Perpetuo athlon metal distribution update and. I believe we all decided to leave this agent vein to discuss. PAT's explain it to us and we're like what what eventually I think we got it. But it's his job now. Okay so I'm just GONNA I'm just GONNA bring up my scanner enter. Because I think this'll be an easier way to talk through it so the key chain says you have to understand. Is that if you participated in a you feel test prior so if you already earned the elite heck south on for those of you listening at home. That don't have visual aid. I'm showing the field tests. Heck's athlon elite meddle in my scanner alongside the regular just bring dealer field tests on metal so originally when they announced perpetual series for field. Tests are sorry heck's athlons the way that the metal was going to work is that you would get the perpetual actual metal and if you placed in the top ten percent at any of the sites in at least one of the six categories. Do it also get the elites excel on metal which was going to be re purposed from the field test so it's going to be the same artwork. It was just going to be a renamed badge in your scanner so technically speaking. If you had already earns the elite medal from the field tests you would have that metal. It would just be renamed to say elite hex excellent what has changed in the recent update. Is that rather than reuse the existing metal that metal is going to stay unchanged in your scanner or if you already earned it in September and then going forward for the perpetual series. Possibly the series beyond that you'll be able to earn a participation medal so so that's the first tier which is what the gold medal is that we have available through the social media for perpetual. And then if you place in the top ten percent for any of the six categories you can then cheer up that participation medal to the Elliott version so just like any other challenge metal when you open it in the scanner. You'll see. Oh I got the initial participation badge but then I also level it up to the status now is that your top ten in the The area or the place that you are at the heck's athlon or specific site that registered. So I wore as I have to beat everybody to get in the top ten percent of all the people at Warriors for one of the six challenges so you can actually get elite status in multiple challenges not area so out of the six things that are going on that day. You just need to get top ten percent and one of them so really top. Ten percent of people at that site is the top ten four six different things in at least one of the criteria arterial. So I've got a picture of my my stats from September but a godly elite hexagon metal by getting elite status in three out of the six categories. I think I had like artifacts collected glimp- hacks in one other thing I think like originators deployed as my top ten percent and I can total. We have two hundred and twenty people registered for the Rhode Island Phil Test in September. Only about one hundred seventy of them showed up so there is actually a a lot of dead space on the bottom of the leaderboard for people that were just all zeroes in terms of stats. So don't know if they're gonNA filter those out somehow going forward but it's if you're dedicated to trying to get elite the best strategy that I can offer you is after you get the minimum's among six categories knocked off and you have earned the participation medal focus on one thing that you believe. You can do extraordinarily well and every five minutes. If it works the same way you'll be able to go into the APP through the Ticketing system so you the main menu events then you can pull up the ticket for that site and you can actually in your web browser refresh every five minutes to see what your stats are live. So you'll be able to see the scoreboard where your placement is is whether you have elite status at any of the categories or if you're falling above or below the average and that makes a lot more sense because when I first looked at it I was thinking it was just top ten percent at the site. And that's like that's going to really cut that make that badge hard to get but now if you're looking at top to are those six different areas theoretically could be looking at fifty percent of the people maybe somewhere in that area Getting that elite status this if everybody goes their own way it was a little bit of a push definitely one thing that I noticed from the September site that I went to was that most of your people that had leaked one category had it in several other categories so like I ended up I don't know an hour and fifteen minutes into to the ninety minutes a deadline to get all the achievements done. I think I had elite status in five categories but then I started focusing on just ensuring and I couldn't get knocked out of place in anything so just went really hard core on getting artifacts collected and then I kind of lost elite status and a few other categories as but stayed very close so I think it was still like top fifteen twenty percent and a few other things. See and you're you're smart. I was stupid I thought when I saw Lee come up next to one I was like okay good I got it and then thought it was done like I had elite. Then you know He didn't keep it. But you had it right right so it's not a First one to get it. It's it's overall scored so you might take the one that you're thinking that you want to try to get elite for and save that for your last thing. I mean if you can do a little bit along the way whatever ever but then at the end just keep their and just until the end of the event just keep you on at that one to the very end now. Did this kind of breath make people want to be more individualistic or did it kind of dissuade people from team play from what I saw. There was a lot of team play. And it may have been people not caring or not knowing the rules completely but There was one agent that was actually riding with me for most of the time because she had a injuring. And we both have our trekker one at that. And we both got out and these two guys actually Said Oh we'll do it and like grabbed her and pick her up and just start running around with her to tell her get the team play their right. It was extraordinary ordinary and it was like awesome and we still didn't make it because of that bug and then luckily they gave badge later so that that was get But yeah so there was teamwork there. I don't know otherwise I don't know what did you see me so I kind of went into it trying to gather as much information as I could about what style is going to be from the sites that went ahead of the US. So I kinda cheated a little bit and did my homework and figured out like okay. Here's what they were doing over in Asia Asia. Here's what they were doing in Europe So knew what the will we all knew. What the categories we're GonNa be we at meteoric facts? MAS deployed glitz points Portal hacks resumes has deployed and The walked but I kind of knew that it was going to be an individual type. Play style I carpooled with a a bunch of agents up and then we kind of decided that this was going to be an event where we would treat. It's sort of like an anomaly. In the fact that you're going to be on footwear possible. We had a couple of people Carter assessing the event but it definitely leaned more towards. If you're able to get out on foot and participate that way. It was a little bit of a benefit so I did see need both factions where there were groups of friends that were kind of going through the event as a team quote unquote making sure that they could choke off all the boxes and then we did have a wide array of people that were just going there as individuals so my strategy throughout the the Rhode Island Heck's half on was pretty much going through and they had a map that you could view so as soon as you have the media instruction that Kinda told you like. Here's your task list. What you have to do from the registration portal had a math? That was tied into it. It showed you are all artifacts portals. Were and alert enough in Rhode Island. I I guess whoever at night was making the maps must've been bored or they're just trying to hide an Easter eggs but the media artifact portals in Rhode Island were laid out in art pattern so box that we had it was kind of like. Oh here's media portal. Here's you know artefacts sorry media artifacts thing in my mind So those were lay the big ring so my strategy was just to play like how I normally play so doing pretty much all six the criteria. But I'm going to just loop the artifact portals as much as I can so every time I came up to artifact portal. I globe packed it. If if it had opened mudslides I was tossing the heat sink on glitz hacking again tossing a heat sink cliff acting again. The resistance were continuously blowing it up or x is care so I mean it worked because I got fourth place in artifacts so yeah and I could see this being better editor for those people that are not quote unquote team players. You know if you if you own you wanna I just WANNA play. I don't WanNa have the people and Anomaly spelling not much but in this case you you could enjoy yourself and you never have to talk to anybody anybody. Yeah I think during the first one I kind of felt like. I think there's a lot of other stuff going on too but it really felt like oh man. They're like trying due to kind of get rid of the faction love like they want more cross faction and now. It's like single play but I I've kind of I started feeling kind of like what you're saying do J. Like it's just another way to play ingress so I think it is good to have another offering. Yes in the stuff that we're seeing for the people that are quote Unquote Advertising Their Upcoming Hath Lawns. They're saying hey we've got other events we're doing this we're doing in this. We're doing this. I think they recognize that it could be kind of a lone wolf type event. But we're going to put stuff out there so that you get that faction love so that she can you know meet greet tells people and have something to do as a t. Yeah only so I the sorry. I'm interrupting go for it. But I hate to put it in perspective but from somebody that is in the point of view where most anomalies I'm either a captain. A captain plus doing some sort of organizational role for the faction have a lot of responsibility anomalies. Typically the the field tester like first Saturday type events are Kinda like the event that I can go to and I'm like I have no stress. I can just go in the game and completely have have fun not to say that I don't have fun anomalies. But it's kind of like anomaly as more structured and more okay. Here's what we're going to do by the books and it can take the anomaly. Play style I love and I can toss it into a heck sappho event and just have a lot of fun with it without having the pressure of winning losing or any of that so personally. That's why I like it. I just want to toss out there that I do believe that. The People at my antic doc do here the concern about this kind of since that things are moving away from faction versus faction playing going more for like player versus environment environments. I don't think that that is the message that they're trying to send right now. Even though it does come across our way with some of the events we've had so like we should get more faction versus faction. Were definitely from the band. Our point of view saying this is what the players want so they are hearing that boys always come on up here. We'll give you some facts. This point aren't area at this point. I'm ready for team rocket to invade because it's just like like all green here and it's it gets boring you know and and so I would love for new players to to come play but it's like a lady I work with is is turned out to be resistance. But she doesn't really place who's doing it for Kokomo go endeavors. But her friends were our resistance. To and there's there's three of them and when she told them she worked with me they're like Ethin- Gooney guy like aww like following around like do I was gonNA suggest. Now I can't do it. I was GONNA suggest that we meet in Tupelo Mississippi for for Saturday coming up. Because that's that's kind of kind of close to you but unfortunately I I got roped into a couple of other things on Saturday so I'm going to have to pull a rain check on that one. I loved it on that one but well are. Are you planning to go to any HEX athlons Unless there is a feed the resistance of star. That does that for me. I'm planning but there's IT's no way I'd like to think we the nearest one for us. It's well I'm in-between Miami and DC. So I'm looking at DC potentially DC's twelve hours away and plus. Yeah and I think it's it's like nine somethin- then plus from me but I do have in laws that live in that area and there's an agent. We know that lived near there really is true somebody who probably has a couch. Was it bad that I'm I'm going to both by Ami and DC in Miami's like an eighteen hour drive somewhere earlier are driving it. We're we'RE GOING TO SPLIT IT UP WE'RE GONNA get a road trip together with at least like four agents and just kind of pick up people along the way some hoping you might be able to kind of break trip crashing it. Somebody's place and then we're like okay. Let's get up in the morning and continue but hotels cheap when you're on the road and Cory's stories. Yeah well if you WANNA come through Huntsville you gotta play sustained had another eighteen hours. It's totally the way. I don't think I'm on the way. Well no that's I was thinking if we if I was driving to DC. I could take a little longer trip and go straight straight up and meet you wherever you would be gone pretty much straight across. I think about the mountains the base of the mountains. We could meet there and then like so. You know head that way and then meet up with Agent Vein and do a live broadcast. While we're doing the thing. Is that one and something. The name the date O- on April late April or is that for DC. Yeah Yeah April twenty five years. It's probably right here. Yeah Lexicon heads athlon flon is unlikely. I hate to say this but I'm liking your idea. I I get a few every once in a while. That are not horrible. Even a blind squirrel gets a nut or blind frog gets gets a fly. Yeah I yeah. Even a plane hit a fly every now and then I don't know why swallowed fly okay. Well we had a topic to talk about too but we have like five minutes left in the show. I think you know we could save that. So I feel like we should save it and I would really like to get some audience participation in it because we had it in the chat a little bit and then when we said hey sending a message like the chat stopped talk like no one wanted the info in the show. I guess I don't know but we would like to get audio some negative stuff. Send US stuff in. We're going to turn off the chat. No I think it's a great discussion and the discussion we're talking about is basically guidelines lines local rules I think even like maybe safety guidelines is Potentially kind of in that topic too but You know every area can has their their house rules basically put it house rules. I like that and I you know some people think like no one needs those anywhere and they may be right and I would love to hear the opinions on both sides. Like what house rules do you have in your community. What House rules do you do? You try to find out if you go to someone else's community because because by-in-large there's the global can community no matter where you are do we need rules and enrolls is really kind of I think guidelines sidelines is more work. Yeah and so let us know what your opinion is on that you can actually leave audio. You can just send us a message telegram and audio if you want with video either one or you can leave it on her answering machine which is just speak. PIPE DOT com. I'm slash agent academy and it's just an voicemail where you leave a message and then we have an MP three file we play live on the show and we would love to hear your comments on that or anything else. There were in telegram and We'll have this discussion on the next episode so it we may just unless there's like tons of news. We may just forego news and do the discussion. I in the news after that love had tablets. This house rules discussion so I would encourage agents that you know. Some people might not be comfortable sharing their opinion. If they're the the type where they're like me or I don't believe in house rules so you know bring forth those magical comments and hopefully I will remember all the horrible things that have done in the past. Where is to talk about on the next show? I think that's good to to know like why why you don't think there should be households. I kind of agree with you there And you know yeah. I'm GonNa say you if you have that local house ruler that thing there's usually a reason why and sometimes it could be something stupid like it's because the most powerful H. in the area what's at that way or it's I've got to drive fifty miles to find an la portal. So Oh some of them make sense. Some of them may not. Yeah and it all depends on the community and the agents involved in. That's the whole discussion. There's a lot more there and we could turn this into a three hour. podcast tonight along that topic. Also send us here. You're juicy little bits. Where if you don't believe in the house rules what what standard of Gameplay unplayed you hold yourself too because I know me personally because I don't follow or prescribe to quote unquote house roles? I still have a standard of play and how I approach approach different situations so when I see you know that loan lovely portal and we can get into those details next time but that's the kind of juicy stuff we want to hear about veins Honor Code D- like this you put in your little story of you. Add one where you unknowingly or knowingly broke one of those rules and what happened yeah and speaking of breaking rules. I'm GONNA break the rule of forgetting to give the pass code like I've done the last couple of episodes and I'm going to give it right now and it is a we remembered a go to the site and put that in and you know the page you can go now. It's already up Jay. Jay Blaze has already earned it and his I was looking early. I believe he's been subscribed to the channel with not just described at the prime subscription thinking.

Package welcome back. I was getting worried about uh-huh Kademi number seventy one recorded on January two thousand and twenty. I'm agent Gooney Guy I I do J. A. God. There's a bunch of animals. I don't have one wait. Maybe maybe I do. That's not an animal that's for. It's a nerd rock. It gets green. I'll put it up there. Well we got a lot of stuff to get to. Why don't we start with what we've been up to and already talked about it a little bit of in the intro? The withdrawal didn't hear so I went up to Eddington Effingham. I keep calling. It is that I think they should change the name up. Put it up to the people in charge. Okay I'll twenty any of them so I went up there and on out. Was this effing. Pin See what I did there. Yeah beautiful completely stove shirt to go with it almost point but it was a a first Saturday event and it was a a Lotta Fun. Got To see do J. in person again. I haven't seen you since Chicago. I guess that's been a long time and get a a lot of great agents up there and then I bolted like immediately afterwards. 'cause it was a long trip home and getting ready to eat and I'm like we're where'd we go. It's gone. We had to go back home like dark him. Similar acronyms it take. It takes a lot over and our politics says I just was gone. He was gone and I had to go see Superman. I'm only back. You gotTA stop by metropolis. If you take that route. I mean it is true that is true to have some of those kidneys. And that's about it besides just trying to get training running get the next level and I did hit the Max for the event so I should be looking at five hundred K.. Come in sometime and pace. I'm trying to get that last two hundred K.. Before it drops so hopefully it'll drop in level me at the same time. Just I just see what happens. We'll go we'll see how y'all which opened up to well. I was at Every first Saturday with our with the Gooney research I didn't get to see you. You did he did do the first Saturday the correct way. Oy He got in this car because it was cold we got his car and he set one spot. Just beat up people move F ing cold. It was cold. It was Viz Death thirty degrees or something like that but he I do have to say. He came away with the top frog award. He was the the top API winter. I think it was because everybody was out to beat him up. It's gotTa have that Strat ready to go I I will also say that. He did not beat the resistance but but she is greater is just a phenomenal. I mean I think there's been a first Saturday that she didn't make million when it was all over in doubled so she just does that all the time but yeah it was a cold one but we had about twenty five hundred show up We gave out some Niantic in some Red Solo Solo. Swag and thank you Andrew. Yup I was GONNA say Thanksgiving for bringing it up. Thank you for Andrew for dropping it on our doorstep well goonies stores and that was the real reason because I just hate going to the post office. It'll just be easier to drive this up there. He told me he's like your frigging kidding. Me You'RE GONNA drive six hours instead of put something in the mail. Yup Okay whatever but other than that. I've just been hacking the hacking on the run to replenish my inventory. After first Saturday. And that's that's about it and I do want to say one thing if I go dark. I'm not pulling Zella belly. It's lightning in thunder here so I don't know if you heard that in the background so he's not that I got ticked off is just that I don't have power. What about you you went to? DC Yes. I was in Washington D. C. for their first Saturday and surprisingly we were sitting cold so it was in union station. Correa that you could do pretty much the whole for Saturday of an indoors if you wanted to about twenty five thirty portals in the station and it was I think sixty two degrees outside at our picture that got posted online read it. A couple of people were commenting there like solar short sleeves in handed check lake. The location for this is January. So yeah I over pacts. I packed nothing but cold weather clothing and it just so happened and have like a t shirt says enough to to strip down so I could deploy those resonator because you know it's just hard work sitting there. mashing that he was the eye under packs like switch from the light Hoodie to the heavy hoodie. And that's all I had and it was the whole like there were snowflakes in my face as I what is going on I will say it was snowing when we started. That's when you know. You're playing sincerest disinterest though when you start getting like icicle beard you're like Oh have been up a little too long. You hit your phone because your fingers tooting cold. Oh yeah that's a problem following. I can't hack anymore. It doesn't even register my finger now that we didn't have that problem in DC. We got we got a little bit of rain towards the end of our event but it was pretty again with a large turnout. I think somewhere around fifty agents. Everybody seems to have fun with it. And towards about the last half hour of the event I decided to on the fly without really telling a whole lot of people ahead of time that was just going to do a live drop so I had a little swipe bundle made up. I sent out a couple of clues into telegram channel that I have set up for. You know broadcasting stuff out and I just kind of like a manhunt so I told agents. I'm like get a portal key to this portal which was the registration portal. And then find me well as typing this all up looking around. I'm like okay. We're all the agents agents season people in scanner. I post it and then I hear Vania. Someone's like running at me already so I'm like no this just started. This can't in this way so I just I just took off running started. Deploying begins as I was going eventually they did find me but it was like a minute or two are. I'm I'm sure pedestrians looking in on the event. Where like what is what is happening right now in union station terrorist attack? Perhaps not the best timing to be running around like lunatics but it was fun so do what you gotta do but just a shoutout to inlaid Enlai Day to ask Jarvis Resistance Agent Videocon who took part in that draft and managed to find me. They both decided to share the spoils of war on that yeah really. That's like finished up. The number deployed challenge since the last time that we had the show I kind of just slid it in right under the wire there managed to get the gold is just with all the holidays. Things are a little bit busy and work was killer but managed to get the goal. The blue do we need a sound for that and I do. I do WANNA in a mentioned that if you look there's there's this cartoon character thing down there I don't know they see that or not good job gooney any are on the show. Yeah Yeah it's it's. It's us in Ingress anime style news new anime style. So you'll see it on the thumbnail. If you're listening to it you can go the website and see it of course new stuff only five thousand dollars we can include you is that is that what. I'm sure we can go for that six six grand. We'll we'll we'll bygone. I might even do it for a lot less but that sounds like a good number to me. I know you're always about monetize ing you. You GotTa do it. You GotTa do it. Maybe upgrading. The website again. We actually went over our quota for views last month so when that happens it's like it it gets pricier and so it's better to get the next package than to let them eat those those of us extra so that's good. Let's let's get. She has grown. We like that word that you sounded like a fortune teller because you said it before we we heard it. Sorry sorry do Jay's the shapers you really those fields man they're gonNA trick your portal like right and speaking of monetize ing ingress is doing it so we we tried to to We got the new thing down at the bottom where you get points for just watching the show so it doesn't cost you anything. You'll see the little beaker the bottom with the the -til it's the academy points like shortened is AP so get your ap by watching the show. That's good that's good. I what website is fixed up so we should be less like. Yeah the scanner. It shouldn't go off line nine and do weird things. Yeah so during the holidays I had a chance to go in and add in a fix that should catch whatever. Ver- bug is happening. That messes up the links. So hopefully it'll take care of that and that's about all. I think the week week of so. Let's talk about some some topics. Well speaking of topics of discussion nine and opened their official telegram channel and it took off like wildfire Within the first twenty four hours they had like twelve thousand not twelve hundred twelve thousand subscribers. I dropped zero when I put it in earlier. Ah It's okay. We found little. Thank so there's address. I'm sure we will put that in the show notes but so they. They released stuff deadlock like they've released a lot of stuff but what they did release was on good stuff not much fluffed their ask for just one until map maintenance post which they also did share the forms but the the whole thing buying a telegram channel. Was You know L. Vanguards we kind of asked Niantic and said hey engaging the users where they are so so going out to the platforms at the agents are on should help information because whether you're using the forms or not I think a decent amount of people would agree that it is a different style of communication nation than what Google plus was meant to be a replacement. It's not quite hitting the level of engagement that Niantic is hoping for so are this channel. Are they doing a others as well. Maybe getting something slacker discord or something like Gat or they you know. We're GONNA start with this one and do it. Well I think just getting more communication out there. generalists is sort of a a goal like knowing win to just give the agents a heads up on things and hopefully this is. This is a positive step in my opinion I know there's been a couple of cries of like too little too late in terms of the telegram set up but honestly I think we should be championing the fact that we approached Niantic and said. Hey We'd really love it if you communicate to us on another platform in telegram is one of those platforms and they listen. Stood up now we have it. Hopefully it will get more news. Posted their sin and in its smart because telegram is a mobile first APP for messing ways. The community. Even Google plus really wasn't mobile. I it was better than some. I guess But this is the perfect avenue for a company that that makes games for a phone so as they continue down that route a good one. Yeah I I agree. I mean there's a I'm sure that people use a lot of different channels things like I'd discord slack that kind of stuff but you know. I think it was a good choice waist to start with and you know it kind of started back when Andrew crew made his telegram channel right. And he's he's he's now Gone Razor Solo Cup in his honour if you have one. And he's started his new new job. Don't know what it is. I hope hope he's doing well and I was getting worried about you. Nice thank you anonymous. What are you worried about Nothing probably you probably. I'm not right but I see here that he's going to Munich is true. Potentially now see if you're up to date on the the massive backlog that is the I n. g. discussions channel final so one of the Ingress Update News tickers has a discussion channel. That is back of Andrew's been there talking a little bit since his departure. Sure and he he's hitting that he might be in Munich so if he's putting it out there in public I'm thinking you know what the heck we can put it out. There Republicans. Well so I don't know if you want one last raw sea Andrew. That'd be the place to I noticed. He did say that you know. He's he doesn't know what they're GONNA do for Global Manager. But he's going to keep playing and he did hint that when he hit sixteen he might revert. You might go blue blue. He might become resistance after he re curses. I'm all for it but that's just me and that's true. You still all right. I'm used to forever fifteen or so when I but now we're glad we're glad he's out there playing I would love to see him in the field. It'd be kind of weird because you know he's just GonNa get mopped if he shows up at anything but So guide it'd be it'd be Great Sam and if he were to get to where when he goes to the anomaly levels daringly anomaly and then whoever wins the anomaly faction heroes too. I kinda like that. I kind of like that idea. I could go for that. They'll have it written into the victory condition. It'll be like decide the fate of Red Solo Cup. Maybe he'll become a you know a sensitive in the ingress aggress lower right back in. He can't escape that way. I read faction player. Oh a Red Solo Cup faction Red Red Solo Cup. Get it see what I did. So speaking of challenges number built Global Challenge L. Inge. You mentioned you finished your badge. Their vein and I finished mine. Did you get yours dewey. I got the Middle Tier. It's a resistance thing. We're going to say it's kind of roll around here. We drove him through town. I will say he was good about it because I'm driving through and he's acting he's like am. I going to get you in trouble like not worry about that. The PIN trading trading. Yeah I I did not attack a one I was. I was doing it right. I was not tried to ingress. Yes and drive. I was just driving. I didn't go back later and blows up but it was all good. It was all good. I Like I was there to talk anyway. I appreciate your drive around but I'd rather talk to you. You know and as a global unit faction resistance in enlightened we hit over fifty million fifty one point one million resonates deployed during the course of the challenge. Alan JR numbers. What a bunch of slackers? Let's let's do one billion next time. What what? We can't hit a billion for India so in refresh my memory. What was the initial goal? Thirty thirty million okay. So we should at least try to double it. That's that's a good goal. That's a goal and this one was a little bit different in that. We may talk about this little later. It was did not have a negative. If he don't hit it you don't get are we take away. It was simply you know if you hit it. We're going to reward. You and I believe Brian Rose posted somewhere about that that he did off four kind of not having negative aspects more or less we could get more rewards for hitting certain thresholds above above whatever the the baseline achievement is. So if it's thirty million for the next thing and we don't exceed it we won't get punished. We just won't get the potential awards and I think that should make a lot of players happier. 'cause yeah the punishment that was not even I was Kinda thinking like Oh this this is this is not the greatest thing. Yeah it Kinda discourages agents from going out and playing. It's like well I can take it easy this week. When I'm game name be getting out of a p or something weird and then play hard wants all that stuff's lifted whereas if you throw in some rewards and just not as much people will still probably get out there and play more than they would have normally? I still rather have some hanging over me. But what do I know so yeah we did really well on that The other thing going on on was the desolation what the test solution you. You've heard of that. I have that show but but I do believe Tout John. Thanks thanks for playing that and send it so. We've got a new thing on the livestream where these bids US bits to play audio files summer longer within the others. So if you'll see that papa just no one can hear you that point okay. That's awesome thank you but we did put in and art are a telegram A little poll asking about the test elation and it looks as though it's pretty evenly split Just about now I want to say it's forty fifty percent or so saying that they have protests array of their follow. Alouette closer just little less than that saying I don't care I don't know what it is and right in the middle about eight percents like I have no idea and so now think about that whole whole audience right people who listen to an ingress podcasts. Through these are probably the most informed players of players. Yeah and invest best player says true. Yeah so it's like I just imagined I don't I don't know why it's like I heard about it and like think I'll be honest with you last week before the throughway some media and I don't even know what they were like they didn't is when you I because I didn't think about the I cycling hexagons. No I mean that's my problem is there's nothing there to like even keep you re minded minded that it's going on and maybe you should keep an eye out because you have no idea what to keep an eye out for pretty complex to I mean we're like with with the other challenges that we've had is pretty straightforward. Do this or we need to get X.. Number score this is. This is the coating challenges that brings in a lot of people with that and and just the overall game itself is still kind of where we're going with this well and don't get me wrong. I think that's awesome that they're doing that like the whole test. Latian thing coding challenge. I love having all these different options for agents who like a different place dollar different things can get involved with it and and and do things And maybe the telegram channel will help publicize kind of what's going on a little more as well and and get people involved but also I call holidays right now. Right it's like there's a lot going on everything and so I'm sorry that I lost the relation for us but no I think you raise a good point like the test relation results. They posted into the forms. But I don't I I'm not sure if they get thrown out anywhere else other than maybe in her field from a Jew you lose it. What's he looking? Drop something but I was trying to listen to vein waiting for the audio is I can't hear it so I'm just like I think maybe it's going when the thing goes away. It's gone okay. I've failed test results. That is definitely I the antic. Please like throw that right on into the the the news telegram. Put it in in front of our faces. Getting married you looking at that. This is interesting bits. Thank you Since they changed the scanner and they now have the ability to put those things on whenever you. That's so awesome in there and I have no idea the what he said but whatever it is. You're welcome but yeah you're talking about getting it out there in front of the people you put it in that that startup message. You know that you usually see when they tell you what's going on got it They could post the scores and that kind of stuff although doing too much of that. There's especially you get into Hex athlons and Anomalies families people aren't GonNa WanNa wait when they start that scanner up. I need that scanner right and I think this is a perfect opportunity for Orga Orga for both factions to kind of step in and and drive those initiatives about these these different ideas if they may play a smaller smaller. Part in anomaly tracker and this is a roomful of where where they can use their talents and skills to to further their faction in a global situation and Recently Brian Rose said. You know that they don't they're not going to need those POC's for X.. athlons and and for anomalies and so they're kind of backing away from a little bit and letting the players take a little more responsibility for so yeah. I think you're right there well and I and I know like in the past like I I had Set some things You know about like why does Niantic have them do hotels and stuff like that. It was Toma Graham Talk to us in Michio it's like well that's not. They're not making them do that. That they're doing it. Because of the love of their faction and things like that. So it's like I I kinda step back from that and that was a good point that it's like well if we're doing it like we can't blame Niantic 'cause we could just decide on a hotel all show up you know and and I think it it actually shows that We need to support those anomaly. PSC's in groups even more are because of of they're doing on their own right like they're they're making the decision to to take care of a lot of that and and make Help the agents have a great time while they're so Big props all the the. PSC's on on both factions out there that the anomalies in in the past. And I'm sure they'll still be something like that in the future. Just wouldn't be the same without that so thank you. Yeah Amen. I think there are a lot of things that are yet to be unseen. How it's going to play out because a lot of the behind the scenes functionalities of appeals Dealing with issues with scanner metals. Not going out agents so or fixing incorrect names of making sure that the play box for an anomaly is safe that all of the portals are accessible that they're named aimed correctly that the list goes on and on of some of that communication that was going back and forth and without having. POC's we do without without having officially recognized tie-in POC's I guess should clarify that on a little bit A lot of those things are kind of unknown. We don't know how that's is going to work and to say though that for the moment we are definitely trying to just let niantic no them. The players failed trombone trumpet. Yeah no so. We're definitely only still voicing concerns over that so hopefully more can be done on that in the future Definitely keep an eye on news sources. Maybe we'll get something eventually Louis C.. Well that's also will be waiting to see. Exactly how the rest of the anomaly shape up because if they kind of do one a big animal were their boots on the ground involved like like how the PSC's would and they can kind of take a you know more direct action while they're there and then the other flashpoints or whatever the kind of side anomalies are maybe smaller enough. Almost almost like heck's athlons or something where they don't need as many people involved to set him up and run then all kind of makes sense and could just work in the future. So it'll be interesting to see what happens. We get back to the test elation dewey we we do because now I'm do going around five. It's like Chicago all over again. Enlighten heff four slots. It has forty four. Where the resistance at fifty six so I I don't I haven't been keeping that close? Look at the scores. I don't know how how resistance got that far. I don't know how any of US got that far like last time we talk about. This wasn't forty four and we were like two breath and like so evident. Evidently we're getting a lot better at coding quicker and figuring out where things go on the map. I think that's the big thing. Probably they're figuring out how the map works and and where things go So and and I don't know if new developments were out there or not I'm we've got one another coating challenge out. I guess it'd be Monday so there was a quick video that From pack actually that kind of re explained some contest Directives so it goes over the rules of the tests elation and a little bit more detail So that is on the Ingress Youtube Channel. I think it also went out as has a media. It's it's on the Agent Academy website. That's right that's when you put up do we. J. Somebody who is playing with imbedding decided to embed it so yeah but it it looks. It did also go out as a global media at some point you may or may not have that but it's just label pack tests explanation the nation. So if you go to a website you have a scanner. I threw it away with the other relation. It's like Oh yeah. That's where that's where everything went gooney. You hacked all of the test ray for the enlightened and then you just you just that's that's one of those scores went. Sorry sorry. Maybe that's a new feature. They could add in. Because we're about to get to but I do. I love it but if they added a feature where things like the Latian pieces couldn't be deleted recycled. And you'd be like why can't I recycle this and it would have you like look into it further right like what's going on with this. Maybe a little message that this is super important or something that could be could could beat it to this website and tell them that you found this with me when I found the first couple of that. Okay I'm not trying to put it on there and that was like where do I go. How do I do this? You know and it kind of forced me to learn the community hosting system and stuff like that. I will say that. But you know if you're not such a dedicated player like how do i. I'm not gonNA mess with it. I'm done so but it's those sorts of things that can return angry almost a little bit of its roots back with like secret agent conspiracy type scenario where you you don't really always know right away. What some of the stuff is and it's connected draws? Here's here's a new a new MoD- we're not going to tell you what it does figured out and it's funny because we went through the cycle where there is media and then there was kind of like no media and everybody's like we will media and then they start piling out media for all these different things which is great but then at the same time. Start the solution thing with with the media and you might just get more media and just tossing it like I was gonna say the website for the factor that makes me a moron. Apparently but it does make you more but we'll go from there. Thanks a lot of agent. Recycle all media on contact. I know more than a handful of people that are like media. Get Out of here and we go back to goonies idea the media lockers that you put them all in there. That doesn't count against your Gary. Go good call. He had the answer. I normally like the League media in general I I usually keep him but so I see. There's another capsule idea here is that I seem Dj. Well if you want to go to that we could I ask for like a year. Yeah I don't know maybe we have some losers who are unaware of what. What's in the capsules? All about do you tell. It sure wasn't the capsule you explain the whole idea. I'll explain. I'll explain what I think now. So we used to do this every episode where we would give out ideas for the game and we love it when agent send in their own ideas for the game in for I say the game I'm talking about you know ingress so if you have ideas for Ingram crime in the scanner and it could be the website could be events it could be actual gameplay stuff. Just send it to us. We have links on the website. You can always send them to us on telegram. You can tweet us. Just give them to us. Just Hashtag it. What's in the capsule and maybe it won't get so hold and that's a route reference? It goes way back to pass hosted the tend to not like most of those ideas but the idea friendly fire power sort of like a fracture cracker but not houser runs along. But it gives you the ability that you can blow verster in. It'll take out your factions actions resonate hours so if you wanted to clear a link instead of having to use that virus you could throughout some frac some bursaries and take that out maybe take out three or four at the same time but it's really going to be watched this you don't throw the balance of the game off so I'd say it's gotta be really rare and it probably doesn't work for very long. That's my idea. Just owner doctor. What do you think being a? Why why what's wrong with that? I think if you're GONNA do a friendly fire type weapon. It needs to be something that just affects like everything in the environment. So I agree three. I agree everything number. So it's one of these like no ingress needs WMD's because can't find them we're also like where's the ingress nuke x MP just start finding decrypt the launch codes to the S&P Nuke through a decoding challenge. And just you Dr Sunil Linzo whole city somewhere or you go or something you have five or six agents throw all their bursts into a big pile. Set Him off at once. Now Yeah Yeah like I don't WanNa Soho Oh always the whole like a troll issue or someone sets up a huge field and people people are going to do these things just to knock it knock it down and I don't know like make a to kind of counteract that so maybe that stuff comes back after I don't know could be. I just remember like the time period when flip cards. Didn't have a cool down on them. So you can just hit it in Jarvis as long as you had get injured urban Tori and I don't really Miss Those Times same thing ripping mas off portals. We like the yell at you. Hey thank common. She'll take it off that portal. I need to put something better on their. Yeah that's straight and and so that's we've talked about this idea a lot and I still think they need to do. Just where you can upgrade. Same Mind saw holiday. Replace it but you could upgrade a common too rare two very or MODs still waiting on that link they don't wait. It's on the back of the card. You read the text on the back of the card. It's like variants. Include common rare very rare for the commonly gaps link camps. While I'm sticking with don't care what you say butts let's okay. Well let let the the agents listening let us know what you think about the antics comment somewhere and make another all up. Put another poll out. We'll see what ah okay and also big big things going on on the map that's that was the mouthfuls on the Intel map. There's they're upgrading. It overhauling And I know that as it two weeks ago a while back it was not good for a while it was not loading or loading some portals and not others. You're getting five. Oh four wears and and that kind of stuff and they I think they realize they're still getting that Unlike they're doing some work. They said that for the couple of weeks from January seventh to the seventeenth. They're going to be working on the Intel map with some updates and so if you don't WanNa be bothered by that then make sure you're not playing from ten. Am to five PM. Pacific Standard Time Is. That's when they're going to be doing that work so if you're in the middle of the night it shouldn't bother you. Evidently but they said if getting unexpected bug like behavior apart from the five zero to air which is it just can't read it replied to the thread on. Of course the NIANTIC Digi Janelle. So that's kind of one of the first things that they're trying to get that information back into from the agents wjr please definitely go go onto the format and can and complain about until map issues like will not so much complain but give the feedback back lake. If you're experiencing issues don't just be silent about it go use. The forum can live feedback feedback. Constructive attractive underlying constructive feedback. Don't think reading. It sounds like Jesus wants to feel during that timeframe I've gotTA say Arctic. Chris can be played at times other than the middle of the night with a question mark so it does sound like somebody else does play the middle of the night as well. Well I'm not the only one and you've probably seen that I mean we kinda see that with ages around here that they they first start play their little timid and then they get the fire and that's when you do stupid shit like you drive two hours at two. AM to take out one portal or drive six hours hours to go to for Saturday in the middle of an Arctic zone. Yeah that's weird. Only a Weirdo with do that. Only that visit as many churches as you possibly can. It's not even a Sunday. I've just been in church so much this last week. I don't know where at Time's gone. Yeah you have to explain to people why you're sitting in a cemetery for two hours. I'm playing POKEMON. Go go that while still try using use with the police like I think it was a little over a year ago now is kind of like is just in a parking lot somewhere Pakistan. Hacking Portal's wasn't even like a park it was just like local like a shopping center or something and please Carl's up. It's like what are you doing there. I'm like Pokemon goes like pokemon. They say that. Go out pretty much on along those lines like well. I don't know if I ever told you. Guys about my ingress aggress. Camouflage so if I if I don't want people to know that I'm playing ingress I actually have A. Go casher so where this geocaching. That way I can wander around and people will like geocaching. Leave a love. That sounds good. Yeah it's all right. I think we should all just get like white trucks and put stenciled numbers on the side and maybe like utilities for whatever city you're in and just get a real look in November Lima like free active spray painted on the side. You need a couple. You need a couple of clipboards and a hard pat. You know you walk around with a clipboard or hard hat like he must be working desist. Tax adjuster on the side of the known will talk to you know everyone everyone will leave you alone Not to not to sidetrack too much but I do see. Some commentary are are stream chat. I'm probably going to butcher that name. But add Boris. They're asking a couple of questions there regarding you know ingress. Can we expect to see. We'll their daily weekly challenges and I don't think we've got a direct answer to that question but I do think it is a good question I know for the remainder under of the nemesis sequence. There are going to be more challenges. We don't know what they are yet but we can expect at least a handful more global challenges before the end does the series in May so take that as you will and I also agree with him. He's talking about Com. Seems to be Kinda screwy. Latest action every five Everton seconds. It's commas different in prime than it was in redacted and I it seems like I don't know whether it's going to show up and faction Chad or is it going to show up in some place else. So it's it's Kinda weird but I think I'll get used to it eventually. Yeah like depending on if it's if it's an ad it'll be alerts and yeah and if it's cross faction if it's the other facts from you'll across faction right and if it's your own faction so it's not like the old days where you had like. Make sure you're on the faction tab. Listen just a message to faction out and in case you would calms are not really secure. Although it tells you are not conscious and cure. What except for the green cure resistance? It's it's not secure the we've got some good advice in the stream chat from from a Red Solo Cup. I think it's how he's managed to stay out of police attention throughout all of his career. He's just saying you'll a police car. Get some free donuts. Maybe some high coffee along with that and they won't know free Donut donut. I would just be handing handing him a empty box. Unfortunately if I was driving around donuts is the only Brown who pines. I owe us in the box. Speaking of the challenges that you're mentioning. We'll have thirteen total. I guess at least right. 'cause they're Brian. Rose was talking about the colors from the the metals yet. There's thirteen chapters in nemesis metals. Yeah and I I think there was some agents that kind of had some issues with the color spectrum. It's being used I. I don't know is it because it's is to blue eyed so the whole scheme of the nemesis sequences that it's kind of the the Rainbow Hugh and there are some more the reasons behind that so if some very complicated reasonings behind that that I'm not going to bore bore everybody in the stream with with that but needless to say if you look if if you look at the existing three medals that we have so far if you were to put them side by side they do kind of gradually shift through the color spectrum so I think probably I believe the next week it might end up being almost kind of like a yellowish we might start sliding into like green collar. Okay and a metal or to. I don't think we'll have thirteen challenges because we're already on. I think chapter seven was just the recent Lake Light Mission Day at Sea Italian Okay so yeah. I think we've got a couple more coming but I don't think it's GonNa equals thirteen thirteen there because we we've already gone over quite a few. Yup and Brian Rose said that they're going to be more mindful about what colors they use for the next series following nemesis which is good news. Because what I'm hearing is that there's going to be something after nemesis if we win. Well that's true it could be getting back at Nemesis. I don't know yeah. And she kinda keep some of that in perspective like when they come up with this idea for these badges ages. It's not like they do one event and badge and then the next event in a badge or the next badge weather's vans or whatever it's for their all designed into as a cohesive unit so they can just go well. They're upset about the color so let's change the rest of them just all crap so I don't know I think it's also you know everybody has different tastes and you know something new something different always cool. Oh well maybe not always think something for something but I I it's at idea that that long-term play that's different with this game than some other ones. I mean you're you're looking at a whole year or or to in some cases to come to a combination right so well you shouldn't and there is one that happened during mission date see. I was listening to look pat the banner real quick before mess up which chapter currently on okay I was just segue so mission day. See you know. There's a second one coming up. There is and Dale Staff is is doing this when again and hopefully she will be on the show to give us more information. Asian about out. We're going to try to have her on next week. Bill did we say Thursday can but It will be a little bit later. I think half an hour later. Well I guess this one. We ran a little bit later anyway. Sorry this is my fault so ten minutes later. Then this week Something like that. That's alright but but we haven't been able to go like hey we're going to do a show in a week in a long time so this'll be great and we'll have a special guest and learn a lot more about what you can expect. Admission date see what happened at the first one. What's planned plan for the next one All the information we get we will get it directly from the llamas mouth. Sounds good to me I I was honestly looking at it and then I looked at where it started from and like other sailing out of Puerto Rico that makes the more tough. Just take a boat donate to get Dui to Puerto Rico Fund. That's that's kind of my biggest hurdle those were like. I'm looking at it I'm like we don't. We don't know what the second half of the year schedule is GonNa be and I like really want to go for the crews because I missed out on the first one but I just don't oh no yet it's GonNa be it's GonNa be tough especially with. I'm already looking at Munich. So if anyone out there is going to Munich anomaly I should be there. You're hopefully you should see me there. I don't think I'll be going but I am. I reading it right in saying that. They're going need to have off premise events for that one. I don't what what do you mean. Well that you can not not a recharge per se but it seems like they're hinting that you'll be able to take part of it part of the action but not actually really be over Munich for the anomaly. Sorry I thought we're data but for Munich. I could swim after the boat. If you want at one one point there was mention of getting other people involved and how it was worded and back then I just remember thinking. It sounded like there was going going to be like some kind of global event challenges or something similar going on where agents can participate in that that it goes towards the nominee. But that's complete conjecture and yeah maybe veins read something somewhere nondisclosure. ACT HOLD ON. I've got the tape. It has purple for primary says. Okay hold on just gotTa like it's tape faith just face money. Well I think we're at the end of another amazing show. Do say so myself. Maybe it wasn't the end so I'm right about that part. We do have a code. I will forewarn you. This code will not be active until the episode goes live. JJ WE'RE GONNA wind. Oh thanks Thanks thanks and thanks everyone showing up to the show police all your your comments your concerns concerns and any of your ideas for what's in the cat. I was getting worried about you. And you have comments on the audio. Oh extras or maybe you want some other extra than there. Let us know as well and hopefully we can make the show every time on what we need is like the resonator deployed sound smash sound burster. Sound like getting worried about you. Establish field establish rush excellent work. So do you think it's make make each one more bits to play them the bits bits. Go a record and have you have you guys. Did you guys look at the chat here. I I can't see it. It's really small there. There is a person in the Chad named agent often. But I do I should say I left. Thank connected cells from the old days. It's so funny because you start saying that right when you get to the super juicy part the audio the widow purpose it'll just have to go into the chat reader for yourself that's right and with that and y'all have a great week we'll see you next week. Bye Bye bye now I'm still recording. So they have to wait so the code the code it is a county twenty eight and so just put that on the website which hey now you can't do it unless you listen to the show or watched it we'll put it in

Takata-made downloading latest Intel package. Welcome back I was getting worried about Agent Academy Episode Number Six recorded on February twenty. First Two thousand and twenty. I'm agent Gooney guy you do Jay and vein and we've got some exciting stuff tonight. Super Exciting Right. I excited various lated. Fields can't stop fields fields Moorefield Orleans Morley links more fields and. I think we're going to get to pretty much all of our weeks as we talk about a challenge so how about we just go ahead and start talking about the divac challenge a person that did the most vein like just throw them on the spot do it. So what did you get our? What's up too so I'm only at eight O four right now. I decided I was going to take a pause after I got it. I had some Puerto resets that were kind of like burned the whole my pocket that needed some attention so I didn't want to spend too much time feeling. I've been throwing a series of engines locally so my current engine is only fifteen portals in the layer set takes the Softbank per throw point and I've just been spending kind of cool downtime between flip cards just farming keys and now I'm just carrying around always extra keys. I'm just going around to local agents like please someone take these keys. Who wants to throw fields and so far? Nobody's taken we own the offer so I'm GonNa wait like going to give it another twenty four hours and if nobody else takes me up on the offer just going back out there throwing more fields because these keys aren't going to link themselves. We know what happens if you throw sixteen hundred fields right. Did a nice sweet cursed you get done. It doesn't happen. You died acted. Oh Oh oh my no I mean I can try. I don't know sixteen hundred is big tall order bins on where you're at. That's still a lot of fields. That's a lot and how `bout you agent do J. A. I did the same thing on a very very much. Smaller scale I I did get the bronze one and running as run into AP generators about twenty four. H I was surprised I had. I gone around town lately and so I started looking at the map. I'm like CRAP. Where did these portals in this arc come from so Elliott Pogo glare figured out all the s one squares S. Two squares and just covered this park? So I'm now up to a whole like sixty portal's down pretty cool bad for a small town so I was able to throw it and flip it a couple of times and one hundred. I think one hundred five or something right now so but don't have as many portals to work with and I'm looking at what it would take to do it and I don't think I would have the virus to flip and do do it all so I think I'm just GonNa let it sit and see if some green thing comes along and tears it up but I. I don't think that's going to happen. What Lewis you're getting getting the did you. You did an AP thing generator to yeah. I actually did kind of a pair and actually one. Ap Generator off the other side. And he's another one that would go into the same portals but that was only like seventeen so I have to north and south on a couple of minutes but yeah I think I racked up half a million just about in. Ap just throwing those fields and getting everything together. So I I think that's the thing is people are going to be like crap all the throwing field and maybe you're getting more viruses and jarve is and stuff to be able to flip it while you're hacking because that's just great. Yeah that's the problem. Is that all. These are threes and fours and fives. And there's no eight's round. I think I got one eight one seven in town so I don't really generate a lot of viruses or other things whenever I'm hacking a couple of you know cubes every now then I haven't seen the Jarvis dropping. Oh well maybe that'll change. You know maybe maybe half more than once and and Glib accurate get more chance of getting stuck and I will say that I was what I was doing. The first one. It was raining muddy. Just nasty out. I thought I think owners slide McKee slide the key and that works pretty well so that's not as good as cliff acting but you can generate some keys pretty quick using that slide up to the key nominees and I'm only at one forty six. I think so. I'll get three hundred. I believe in you using a very small AP engine. I know at aged cheese. That would let you through things like I do drive. Yeah if that was the thing so I set up like I have one Puerto. That's kind of my It's basically an AP generator but it's just all around it. You know. I'm just making the starburst to Pacific or go. And so I've just been hitting it in the morning and flipping it killing it resenting it back up but I'm really low on my ass bowls and so. I don't know if I will do that. I might just start throwing it and then flipping it then hoping it stays till I can get back in after work and flip it again and then throw but I think that might be difficult. The I think the one thing that I didn't do well I was just well. Ideologues prime prime tips pie gas on how to make one later real simple. But I didn't really think about setting up for splits so I probably could've generated Moorefield so had I set it up with a generator that you could go back through and split those and get more out of them instead of just once but I mean you you get to splits the first time you wouldn't get to split the second time through so split. Sounds like a negative thing splits. It's you know. When you make a throwback to one that you just did before and you split that field and to and so you get to more now see. I always love this because I feel like it's original dialect. I just call them. Like doubles like field. Yeah around here. We call split. We call them throwbacks. Because you're throwing back under that field just back links. Excellence back links. Vin rails. Down here Langley the keys so we have how long till this is over. We had ten days and it started on the fourteenth fourth fourth and so far we've gotten the first milestone with with five million in something and we still need a few more million to get to the eighths things I think we will. I mean we hit the five point. Five mill in six days. And if we stay on that line as many portals same at the same rate the projection. Looks like we'd hit that stretch about Louis. Twenty second and third like a whole lot of help. I'M GONNA give it to vain vane to it. All right got a million forest. But I think it's people are getting their badges. They'RE GONNA start. Yeah not making fields as much and so we may move last mill. I feel like we're GONNA hit the stretch goal comfortably. But I think you've got two camps of agents on their. You've got a couple of people that are gonna hit the eight hundred and that kind of just coast stop. But I've already seen a couple of agents out just in the local area here that their stats open. And they're in like you know the fourteen fifteen hundred range almost sixteen hundred on fields for the challenge so I think the people that are kind of running their engines. You're like why South Now. Qigong I kind of feel the same. Yeah especially if you get the AP when you start tearing it down. I think the thing that I'm kind of messing is that there's nobody here to tear it. You know tear down. But if you're in a larger city like you guys you know you can turn that stuff down. It makes it easier for them to to re throw it. So yeah it's out there. I think a lot of the rural players are going to just be like got my badge. Got The one I'm done. You know we drive in two hours to throw the fields. It's it's different in in. It's like there's easier ways to make. Ap Yeah in in real areas. Unfortunately it is. I think weekend can come up with the weekends. Good weather I think you should stay on that line so I encourage people to do that. Right challenge you both to hit the three hundred mark. Because I feel like the the stigma with with the field count is inaccurate. I know that it can be harder if you're rural off you have the VR gear. Like I know you probably have hordes of VR gear necessary. Now there's no farms like what are you. What are you saw? Thanks guess for like eight s bose left point eight. I think I've got about eight s bowls left and maybe a total of eight Jarvis or a virus together left and the last week. I've got one s bowl and zero virus and I'm you know and I'm throwing gear out constantly so it's like it's not like I'm not hacking. Yeah it's just you gotTA eight. It's all fives. Yeah that's thing I need somebody just well. I don't need somebody but it'd be nice to have an eight Farmville. Go wish there isn't a farm. It's it's about forty minutes north of me so so I wanNA know how abnormal my virus stock is because I've got one hundred and forty Jaroslav defining. Data's use five hours on my blade. So just kind of get a rough idea. Like what when you think of a farm vainly. How many portals do you think of when you like? I'm going to go to the farm tonight. That's a tough one. I really think it is subjective to about you and your area. Yeah I don't have it's locally woke Louis Louis terminally couch. My couch is a six right now. So you know it's I hack. I recycle resonator recycle burster. 's and I just keep packing that way if I get some. Vr loop some bonus but so far army. Yeah yeah closest farm two hours rally in either direction but what are most the closest friendly fire? Anyway there was a new farm thirty five minutes down the road but I. I don't actually dirty hack it very often if there's an event going on like Wpa or something similar like that will go over there but Typically I can get eight year when I'm at a friendly and there's only one portal through there in that farm that farm couple of hundred couple and is a rarity. I should action definitely state that that is not the norm. No that doesn't I hope. That's not the norm like like our farm here and now the farms pretty close. It's fifteen minutes from my house and I get hit it every morning on the way to work but it's four four portals for so that's the thing though you can continue. Don't need those huge farms. Like you give me two portal. Give me a single eight portal with like a rare multi-track on it and if I'm lacking taking the little bit of time here and there I can't recycling stuff I don't need so recycling the extra resonator recycling the packing at speed silic. I would challenge anyone. That's out there that is at least proficient hacking. Or if you're new hacking start glistening more and use the complex glitz hack more. I know that it is a little more difficult. But if you're mostly glistening sevens it's not too hard it's a little bit harder when you're complex AIDS but yeah we're not get faster you get more loot. Yeah and that's probably my problem because I really suck at cliff hacking so you know. I don't I don't nail a five much or four much. Usually three three lifts I get with. Four divides struggle. So yeah. That's probably why my gear so low as just suck so much with acting Dick. That's my next badges probably What am I at forty one thousand? So it's fifty thousand so I'll probably get that soon but yeah six yeah fifty thousand speaking of making. Ap We'd go onto our next thing. Yeah Yeah I was. I came across this. And it's it's it's pretty amazing. How this guy did this agent role loans? Kind of says he has te'o player. He's he's he's flipped back and forth a number of times Buyer cursing and had a plan. I guess use the to the window to flip at the right time and attack the right time and it looks like he went from level one to level eight in ten seconds. So how did you slap her five shoot? I can't even get one thing in ten seconds. But basically he. He took the time to set stuff up. He'd linked fields like three hundred ninety five lengths and seven hundred fifty five fields. Total needed all this while he was still enlightened and he made sure to set this anchor up as a level one with much each saints multi axle. Yeah so yeah like four hundred keys to start with that. And he's just was Lincoln Lincoln Lincoln and he happened to be in an area where there wasn't many people around so they weren't tearing it down so you had the time to do it. So just before the planned event he hit sixteen. I waited and then he refers to blue by that time that portal had a bunch of AP sitting was double A. B. He got six hundred and forty thousand for the destroy and six hundred and forty two thousand because it was an enemy portal at that time so when he destroyed out one portal he netted one point one million two hundred eighty three thousand one hundred eighty molly which level eight is one thousand two hundred eighty so that was some some pretty amazing planning now. He had a video out. How did he do that? But when you look at the site rep and you start to read. It was a lot of planning and interesting interesting. So the last without the double. Ap multiplier like good luck. Yeah you'd have to have what like eight hundred but you'd have to have like fifteen hundred fields connected ended up thing and that would be close to eight hundred. The scanners probably GONNA start not having a good time because when you start getting the Star. Wars that are huge. Trent actually burst them. I owed at the beginning of prime so harder so I guess I'd be curious to rip about scanner problems. China actually take down that low level portal. He didn't he didn't mention it. But that's a good point. I know that couple times we did starburst and of course last time. I think we really did one was with redacted and it just got really laggy as a matter of fact it got so laggy that one of our own players flipped it not knowing what was going on because he couldn't play and he was not a popular character after that. But so that is our. There's zeroes in that or is chatting prime like it's case sensitive. I tried to paying him in getting nothing or did he change his name after sixteen. I. I'm not sure I didn't try to that account so we'll have to it to make sure that we're just gonNA tell everybody like Ping it out there but But Yeah I mean. That's that's really cool. It's there should be an ingress book of scanning records or something all fame. This one can go down in. There is that and so they flip back and forth every time. And that's what I wanted to go see. I want to see how many times they recur. I Sit Rep. Said he's on like seven or eight. I think it'll be out there. 'cause I don't know what the current record is for Berge but I would imagine seven or eight is. Yeah probably. There's not too many folks that are here that hi I'm plenty of players on like recurs. Three or four but yeah. That's that's I was thinking. He was on five and this made six. But I could be wrong. Well in your on what fourteen now having fifteen and I dorian if he's out there listening or now he's like you know scratch in the back of his neck and stuff. I have now passed the thirty million mark on this recurs and the data is challenged kind of made me want to jump into high gear with getting sixteen again. My goal is to try to get back to sixteen and under a year and I didn't quite hear that so I think by the time w rolls around again. I want to be in a position where rehearsing right at the start of double eighteen. And then I can ride the gallant to like level taller. Thirteen by the end of again. Maybe you can do the one eight in five seconds. Oh Jeez yeah. I don't know if I want to build out of field plan on that caliber. I I enjoy microfilming destroying areas. Fluid play rather than like. I'M GONNA sit down and plan out this. Massive eight hundred layer field that way when I recur so I can smash props to the agent at the time to do that. I think that's really cool and I really don't think anyone's going to be beaten records soon and it looks like a couple of days. The amount of cheese you need to far terrifies me like my lockers are full of things. And I'm scared to the I. I am not a key order. Another problem is I have too many Hughes. I don't WanNa get rid of them. So one locker six total lockers. Some one of those those people that everybody hates so like Abu slackers but for those lockers that are just like always permanently full like I have one souvenir locker so I've already kind of taken myself out. Game like a has six lockers. But one of them is full of souvenir keys. That's labeled breadcrumbs and it's just all like anomaly. Portals that I fought over or stopped at a weird rest stop and there was a portal. That looked interesting. Those don't worry I have. I have one like that but I call it memories. You Call Your Yours breadcrumbs. Yeah mine is labeled bread crumbs. Do you have a key locker race? Ap's in doing yeah. Kind of politics is spread across a couple of them. But Yeah I've got some that I just I just WanNa keep the problem I have is. There's a couple of that I'm like no I really want to throw to this day. And so I've generated a bunch and I've got you know like one hundred of them. I'm like okay now. I gotta do that. You get rid of this hundred well the next thing we want to talk about it. It's not a fun story. It's kind of sucks for folks that sex more folks for the reason why this is so they niantic has decided to cancel the perpetual Hex athlon event in Naja Arkansas Japan that was planned for February twenty ninth due to the grown virus outbreak in the region. And just just as anybody who's GONNA try because they it's unconfirmed but agency registered for the. The event may receive the standard. Hex athlon metal at a later date. And if you thought like Oh man I need to go register for that real quick so I can get the metal. They've taken it off the events page so you cannot not that I was looking to see you gooney. Please don't make more work for me but if you know the URL structure you may be able to find. No no don't do it and I think didn't they also take the mission days for almost all my one but the rest of the mission days are gone. I think so I mean the only events at least in the scanner are the at least that I saw the perpetual ones so yeah I don't know the mission days there's probably maybe different link that you don't do inside the scanner or was an active. Because I do not see those see it there. Also they have some changes to the L. Thirteen thirty one in Europe or those changes. Uk cities they cancelled some and they put some new cities in so I don't know which ones they pulled out. And which ones they put in. They said due to technical circumstances so I don't know exactly what those circumstances would be Maybe it's grabby cell signal and they're found it can't make it or something and it could be as their kind of taken over some of the the on the ground Paperwork and stuff they maybe finding that there are some laws in different areas. That are making it hard for the maybe trails. And there's like really stringent rules in some areas where it's like you have to have people certain amount of people and things like that. I mean there's a whole bunch staff so there's no telling what it is but I'm glad they're looking into it and letting people do now and not the day of finding out we're going to have to cancel it today. The trip better to cancel now instead of after. Somebody's on a plane. And you know work that stuff out till next time. What's Vein did you do? You have something that you're trying not to say you know I may be no something. Is the cold weather making your beard. Grow? Because you know I like this. I was like Asian academies coming up efforts to look presentable to the camera for the audience. I think it looks great. I I bet it a little bit downstairs to with the stash. So that's personal. I'm talking on Jan not the basement. Okay you're talking more like Geez kitchen or something. Okay so also hard enough for this. Lean now if you'd like Ben came back didn't have a beard that awesome Russian either shaved real quick or is just like anyway so also pack posted on the twenty first due to unforeseen interference precautions. The hand has decided to postpone this. Live drop to another time and another location and this is the one that was going to be. Where was that was that in China or is that somewhere near? I don't know what that was but the Japanese Japanese travel. I could be wrong allowing thinking. It's interesting I mean. You don't think that that's going to affect you so much. I work with computers in a computer shop. We've just not been able to get arts. You know we know. The factories have started back up. But they're not full speed so the world and that you know everyone out there you know take care of yourself and and you know stay healthy and keep away from people that have it. I mean it's like how can you if you live in an area so just don't go to China if you go there stay for a while like a month? Okay so more exciting stuff. I don't even know what this is. GonNa read this next one. And hence are shaped like stars octagonal. 's was that their aid package dropped a couple of hints about the live drops. Okay and the pictures are shapes. That look Kinda likes starfish or tag titles. And so they're sponge. Well not that starfish. But so I don't think they have an idea exactly where they're going to be APP but these started to drop hints so I don't know exactly when stone so soon soon. Okay so that the word from the vanguard is soon and do we have a new decoding challenge. Did we talk about the last one? I know where we starting at before the show or was that the ship before I think the last show we were decoding as we started the show. Somebody up to like four o'clock in the morning decoding out from your memory. Remember if we had a show in between then and we talked about it but Like it was a bear to solve in without. I've got to say this without the community forums. Like no one's giving answers there but there are people like Kinda saying maybe try this sort of technology and kind of trying to steer people down the right path and honestly there is no way in hell. I would've finished it without you know reading a lot of those comments and and the other thing is just like when you're stuck just put it down for fifteen minutes third wall come back because sometimes you just had that. Aha Your brain just wakes up and gives you enough time to figure stuff out but I did get the the media and immediately deleted it. I was worried that it was it was. I thought it was for the test elation so you can't have this and no. I'm just kidding. I still haven't but we also both of US omitted our thing for the test. Elation to the three did that vein to submit land too distracted or this week. Well it was funny. 'cause do a mess chat like the host like hey has submitted this and I was like Oh God and I'd been playing all day so I don't know when I got it but sure enough I had it in there so went and submitted it and it was the one immediately after. Dj's in the thread. Like that. When I'm just ahead but so does it matter. If people submitted after the first one I thought it was just the first one. So what's to do with people submitting it? After the First Person Smith I three although there were some tweaks to the the rules so I'm a little behind under the specifics of different rule changes but it was for a while. I three blue posted. Everyone wants to slice of the Pie. So everyone's GonNa posted. They went out. They hacked it. They'RE GONNA post. And there are some instances where the tethered hand will say before. This advances to the next round or an additional clues given certain amount of people have posted this specific tests. Ray So there have been instances where like Oh we need two hundred and fifty people to post on either side or different criteria so it really depends on the specific Tetra and get on the scoreboard. Young you might be near the bottom like me. You're on the scoreboard. Oh scoreboards on that. I'm on the bottom of. I should've brought that up as well. That's fine the only time I've gotten high up on the scoreboard. They recounted later and I was not as high as I thought it was. So try harder. That's right also. There's something new coming out. There is announced Vikto a partnership with NIANTIC labs. And they've well. They didn't create pokemon go NIANTIC labs or the creators of. It's some sort of interactive like thing. It's also GEO location based and it's viewing experience. So do we think this? Will I believe I read somewhere? That this wasn't Mike is going to be kind of new storyline line. If stuff I I I think that's kind of the discussion. GonNa take the anime in direction. They're going to go. Some people have been discussing are they rebuilding ingress obsessed and. That's what kind of feeling so I think the description of it is. You know the two young women that will be like on the journey so I feel like they're going to pull through like agent situation reports and do a little bit of the like okay. You'll have interactive puzzles and different things that you can do. That will be kind of like that ingress. Obsessed style reality ingress show but it might have a little bit more puzzles. Interactivity like ingress has had events in the past. I know Japan has had a few of them. Were there have been like other APPs. That has some sort of puzzle. I know the dark. Xm Challenge had. I can't remember the specific name of the application but it was like a puzzle APP that agents had to gather around specific portals to defuse a dark. Xm weapon and then they will get like a code to to solve another riddle and then it just kind of continue on past that point to ultimate resolution. Geocaching has a similar to that. Those kind of a companion piece is a long time ago called where I go and it was more of a gave you a clue and then it would keep track of your location when you move to the next location then it would pop up with either a sound file or web page or something and then give you the next clue to the next one. So I don't know maybe maybe this would be something that you know you get that Clinton you move to the location or the portal and then you get the next piece of the video in a way it goes who knows. Hopefully it's not you know making you do things like run into the river or something like that. I wonder if we can make our own fixed. Oh look we can submit a show. Let the PODCAST and and people will be able to interact with the video podcast. We already had that and people were making all kinds of noise but we like their noise. I haven't heard any time. A couple of people were saying. It wasn't working earlier a few of our other technical issues so apologies if anyone is trying to put those things and it's not working we don't know why stream dudas. Are you talking about our stream? Yeah yeah all of our technical issues. Tonight I started restraint was having issues so I drop the stream for a second in. Just put us up on twitch itself and so we should be fine and that was like after the first three minutes. But if it's been going on since then then I'm not sure what's going on. I think we've been good since then. I think we're sorry I'm GonNa Watch some Vikto move over. Podcast DOONEY as they search. She is the ultimate California Gal with a cartoonish style described. That's Katy Perry while we lost for like ten minutes. Okay that's that's Katy Perry and that's Vikto and it'll be interesting to see what happens. I what happened to the enemy? I mean they had a run of shows and then what I feel like. You can count the animate done personally. I mean if you look at like anime website stuff. There's just like since the first month. There's nothing new there right like when the DVD's came out of the blue race came out so my age talking about DVD's what are those are more. No one uses that case Betamax tapes. God thanks Control Alz. Ck That's awesome. I don't even know what that was. Zombie came up and rain around the screen. That was pretty cool. I think someone hacked is. That's all right. They're not getting from me. What's that. Oh the tethered hand doing it. That's just my hand. I'm just messing with me. So what were we talking about on the enemy? Do you know anything about the anime. Vein. I wish I knew more about the anyway. I would love a season two but it just doesn't seem like I don't know how I don't think season one did well. Unfortunately there was too much gone and not enough scanner and some people are like why while their guns scanner anime. It just didn't work out. Well I you know. It's like the friends that I know that that watch a lot of anime basically said it was kind of old like the style was old and wasn't modern enough for them and for me who watches almost no anime like that was really my first one unless you count heavy metal which was a long time ago. I did watch pokemon but not like real anime. That people he's about go get this collection so but to me. I enjoyed it. I liked it ally but this is all she can now see. I don't have the Ingress Blueberry. Say yet some sad yet. I should probably do that. Wants to watch original health thing or maybe like maybe floor now. Too Bad cast. Let's see what else we got knowing? Maybe some magic nights for years. I don't know Chad. Get Studio or anything are we so not playing good. That's why I turned off the Katy Perry so there you never know. Actually I mean she sues us. I mean more people would know about and once the forty bucks she can have the forty bugs right like I really enjoy the enemy and I really was hoping that they would do another season of some sort or even just a whole news new story be cool but like maybe we'll get like an ingress anime ova suggests just like a short like you know just one extra episode or a special or something like that. Maybe fingers crossed. I don't know John Hanky Panky Everyone Ping Ace like right now. Just paying ace in just building where where the at will. But don't think they'll just say where were you at when we released the enemy. Yeah I don't know I've never actually gotten a reply from eighties like I am breathing. Pink avoid from gifts. Well I've got a thing in the hopper. GotTa Sing in the works. Maybe we'll have our own little cartoon. What are you one frame? Very small one probably be good size. I have an artist friend who I did a little computer work. Forward he said. What can I pay? You know you're not going to pay me. You're going to work this off off so as soon as he's finished with another job he's GonNa do this one so hopefully I told him you can either do it in the style that we already have or your own style. It's up to you so we'll see how that turns out. It looks like we got quite a few people in the room tonight to New People. There's a Arben somebody out of my own cell. He's on the other side of the cell so it's nice to have friends on the other side of the cell because then you can throw a cross sell and if you have somebody north you can make those triangles triangle things but and you people come in with back you up. Didn't you vein or you thought I think if you're out there yeah good well and this was going to be a short show tonight and it's you know we want you to get there. Make those fields and get to the thing. Sorry and I was kind of. After we've heard looking at the anime I was trying to look for the DVD. And then my brain went to. Hey I wonder if English shop ever open back up so I went there and it's like even more than it was with like broken images and stuff so I think Andrew left and took the shot with them. I think he was probably running it. That's my guess and we need ingress merch right. Like why don't they do Ingress? Merck's they always talk about needing Muslim. You got to sell it. And let's look at ingress players an anomaly. There's they're worrying about stuff but you can't just do the logo of the anomaly and slap on shirt and go here you go like hire some of these artists that are doing this stuff for the factions to make some cool designs. Then you can sell all year long in the shop and then go hog wild on that. I. I really am kicking myself that I didn't buy something in Chicago. That's really nice and again it was the locals said some really nice stuff and by the time. I figured I wanted to buy. It was gone so it'll sell and you should reach out if it was like you know you're doing it. Reach out here faction see if they have any. Leftover merchant mean a lot of the anomalies. They they bring it to the next anomaly like try to sell it early and stuff like that this is Chicago Chicago. Is You know it's not there anymore? That was some kind of code via Resistance Code. It's the resistance cody tonight there. It's not there anymore. Now they say real good job ordering just as many as they they thought they need in little little extra because they have been caught with lots of them that they could sell for so. I don't blame him. It's a good way to down the rabbit hole and you just went down. I was like oh maybe the youngest animator like DVD's you're still available on Amazon and the the boxer light that you can see on Amazon just tossed link into the host chat. But you have to present this box art because the back of the DVD set has some ridiculous art. Our even know what's going on. This isn't so on. That aren't somewhere in the in game credits members in their salt here. Let me put this back on camera. We're going down that rabbit hole. We Are. Are we talking about this one? Yes yeah that wants to expand that it is absolutely ridiculous like just take in everything that's occurring. She's at Arthur. There's there's like a Mecca in for some reason why he's in the bottom corner. They're just like fan service. They're like here you go. I'm like what is what is happening in our what. What kind of animates people like? And then just make sure you put them all in. There doesn't matter whether it's in the story or not. Just put them all in there. But the the front of the Mecca is like. There's a link camp on the chassis of the Mecca. That is beautiful on. That's crazy. I'm changed now ago imaging. There's only one left so I if anyone wants it like there you go. There's the link showing her like up skirt. That's like mess fencer. I tried to be pc about it a little bit. But so just hear all the shapes and things we're using. We're not gonNA explain to you. Make a movie. That's anything but there was also the Blu Ray. So there it is. There's the enlightened version of the BLU. Ray Wait. They have fashion specific versions of seriously which is new for two hundred fourteen. Forty five get that to jump on that earlier you can get used for one hundred and twenty six. I'm going on Lou. I'm going on a site for Amway just to see if I can find a box set for cheaper. Man I think in this needs to come out of this show money. We've got dave coffers and in about five years we may be able to. You know what's funny is searching for blu-ray Ingress you see with the second link is it's the candy podcast at a little story about the the only four hundred dollars when it came out twenty thousand or everywhere So there's the the enlighten version. And if you can get in on that code you might be able to get some loot out. Read it to you. It's zero one two three anyway. Totally reading they have a video that is on our website. Yes you have to look at that. And then there's the BLU ray volume two. Which is the resistance. So the the funny thing is if you Wanna get the all the episodes you're you're talking you know thirty. Six thousand yen are actually thirty. Eight thousand yen and I dunno do the and there's a video for that too but you get a limited passcode so enjoy that fully renew. They just had it real vanguard info we were getting no but JJ blaze. I think he's saying you can't even buy the DVD and Canada. I think that we all want those Canadians have it. God knows what they'll do it. Oh the cat's GonNa do something with it. So let's see okay so it's gone down in price a little bit here. If you want to get it on Youtube I she dot com. It's only seventeen thousand eight hundred ten. I think that she is in. But do you really want something ship from that part of the world right now shipping beside you'll be safe doesn't believe it on the dogs for like two months two months get an boil it. No use it okay. I can get out of retinal get out to. I'm going to stop okay. Anything else watch party now like we need to do an agent academy special where we just like. We talked about episode. And just talk over it. Director's cut the net flix together. Or there's some sites I guess where you can. Just start playing the the netflix video. And all watch at the same time which you know. I don't know of nine antiquated. Come after US actually. I haven't even if they get. It may be ultra or the company that did the original. I don't know well. This is old job. A cryptic clue for physical location where the watch party will be and then you just have to be there. Eddington. Just drop. Drop it and say there's a there's a BLU ray here. Let's see if anybody shows up. It's kind of expensive to do though L. Little little. But have you seen all the other merch that is is across the ocean from us besides just the BLU rays? There's a lot. There's a lot like jewelry and stuff. And it's like the game that much more popular US over and other countries. I mean I came across a Spanish Ingram show just as we were getting ready. I'm like where's this? Come from? So we're not the only ones out there. The hey that sounds like X. Files could be could be okay. Well we're GONNA quit extending the show with nothing. Which is what we've been doing. I don't either this kind of Seinfeld. Version just nothing. So are you going to be the soup? Nineteen Catholic like the Soup Nazi. I could enable jacket no soup for you know some for you go. Go Newman the code. So here's one thing with the code. It's not actually on the website quite yet. But we're going to go ahead and give moral code and you'll be able to turn this in on Saturday morning so it will remember it. It's a no code four. I mean change that for you. And that's no Code F. O. R. Y. L. U. A. And that will be there Saturday morning. The Circle next week if you need to Saturday morning overseas Saturday morning eastern Saturday morning pacific Saturday morning Russia. Roughly twelve hours. Okay want to be specific from when we're doing the recording in the show with thirty three you're broken J. J. Blazes Heart. He's been waiting this whole time for that code. I don't know if they'll ever come back. Come back please please please. We don't want seventy five percent of the audience to leave me here and do that. Math if dry. It's difficult. Thirty five percent is one hour three in there so anyway. That's it and I have to do all the bumpers all the things. So like do that thing. It's on the screen. If you're watching it's just subscribe and like and all that and there's also so night everyone have your weekend. Go finish making one more show for thirty one more show before first Saturday. We have show four for Saturday I think he's London. I think I'm going to be on the road on the road. Get rid gotta go on. I think I think there's a first Saturday in Chicago in Saint Louis.
