Ingress Action is Hot and Heavy at WorldCon

Ingress Action
Though there are panels every hour, there are not panels I want to sit in on every hour at WorldCon. Sometimes there are a couple free hours available between panels I want to listen too.

It's during those times I play Ingress. And trust me, downtown Spokane (Washington state for those unfamiliar with U.S. secondary cities) has portals aplenty. With WorldCon in town, there is a large contingent of agents from all over the world. We lurk behind every column and on every balustrade.

This afternoon I had a couple of hours available, so I captured a large section of River Front Park which surrounds the convention center. The area isn't super large, but with so many portals it was actually a bit tricky to set up. Especially since I hadn't figured out all the rules for linking portals when I started. This is the first time I've really had an opportunity to do so. But I got it done as you cans see.

However, it didn't last. I wasn't even 10 minutes into my 4 PM panel when my first portal came under attack. By the time my hour-long panel was over, all my fields had been taken down, though they are not replaced with The Resistance's fields yet.

That was this morning. We had to take their fields down before we could get ours up. The battle for the heart of Spokane is hot and heavy. If I don't make Agent Level 6 by the time WorldCon is over it's because I broke my leg or something.

From what I've seen so far, I don't think either side will get the upper hand in this struggle this weekend. That'll make it even more fun - and rewarding. Yes, it's going to be an Ingress battle royal, and that's what I've been missing with this game since I started playing.

Now, it's time I got back too it. For the enlightenment of humanity!

Be civil, be responsible and most of all be kind. I will not tolerate poor form. There will be no James Hooks here. We are all better than that.
