GHFX 6 - Das Freaky-Franconians-Flaggen-Ritual

Technische Schwierigkeiten, Pannen, Unstimmigkeiten und vielleicht auch ein klein wenig Trunkenheit (vor Liebe zum Spiel versteht sich, #zappenduster) begleiteten den jüngsten Teil der GreenhouseFX Serie. Doch der Reihe nach. Gehen wir ein Stück zurück in der Zeit:

Nach einer nicht enden wollenden Geburtstagsfeier des Gelehrten ging es nach Österreich in die Shard-Schlacht von Obsidian Wien. Wenn gleich der Krieg gewonnen, wurde die Schlacht verloren und man berief eine Sitzung zur Fehleranalyse ein. Allerdings wurde der Abend einfach nur #zappenduster für den Gelehrten; die Lage wurde zum Gelage.
Am nächsten Morgen stellte man mit Erschrecken fest, dass die Flagge der Freaky-Franconians verschollen war. Der Kaiser ließ nach der Flagge schicken, jedoch ohne Erfolg. Es musste eine neue Flagge her.

Auf der Suche um ein Ritual, der neuen Flagge zu Ehren stieß man auf alte Pläne des UNOT16-Projektes. Durch gezielte Modifikationen wurde das Projekt verbessert und erweitert. Man war guter Dinge ein würdiges Feld zu schaffen.

Der Optimismus sollte nicht lange halten. Bei der Teamkommunikation musste man feststellen, dass der komplette Linkplan im öffentlichen Kanal verbreitet und diskutiert wurde. Es kam jedoch noch schlimmer. Am Westanker hatte man bereits einen Prototypen der neuen Freaky-Franconians Flagge. Dessen Unterlagen blieben jedoch auch nicht intern, sondern verbreiteten sich für jedermann öffentlich einsehbar auf Google+ [1][2]. Dies blieb natürlich beim Widerstand nicht unbemerkt und konnte auch erkennen, dass das Forschungsteam am Nordenberg einen Fracker platziert hatte. Trotz dieser Pleiten-, Pech- und Pannenserie setzte man sich über alle Bedenken hinweg und glaubte felsenfest an den Erfolg des Rituals.

Materialien wurden erfarmt und ausgetauscht, Erzmagier, Magier und Zauberkundige gesucht. Als man das Team komplett hatte konnte es losgehen. Einige Zauberkundige mussten am Vorabend etwas mehr vorbereiten als andere. Mancher wurde sogar, gefühlt mehrere Stunden, verfolgt. Doch alle haben ihre Vorbereitungen höchst zufriedenstellend abgeschlossen.

Am Tag des Rituals verlief alles nach Plan. Gegen 8.35 morgens hatten die Erzmagier und der Gelehrte die Freigabe für das erfolgreiche Ritual erteilt.

English Version:

GHFX6 - The Freaky-Franconians flag ritual

Technical difficulties, slip-ups, disagreements and maybe a tiny bit stoned (in love with the game, of course, #pitch-black) accompanied the most recent part of the GreenhouseFX series. But first things first. Let’s go back a little in time:

After a never-ending birthday party of scholars, the next stop was the shard battle of Obsidian in Vienna Austria. Even though the war was won, the battle was lost and a meeting for fault analytics was convened. However the evening ended up in #pitch-black for the scholars; the situation became a feast. In the next morning, it was found out that the Freaky-Franconians flag was lost. The emperor sent for the flag but without success. A new flag was needed.

In search of a ritual to honor the new flag, someone came upon old schemes of the UNOT16 project. Concerted improvements to the schematics helped to enhance and expand the ritual. There was a good feeling in general to create a worthy field.

The optimism should not last long. The team communication showed that the entire link plan was broadcasted and discussed in all comm. However, it became worse. On the western anchor has been a prototype of the new Freaky-Franconians flag. Also, these documents did not remain internally but being spread publicly visible at Google+ [1] [2]. This, of course, has been recognized by the resistance as well as the research team of Nordenberg placed a Portal Fracker at the anchor portal which caused additional attention.
Despite this series of flops, pitches and breakdowns everyone was very confident that this ritual will become a success.

Materials have been farmed, archmages, mages and spellcaster were chosen. As the team was complete the show began. Most spellcasters had to prepare little more than others the evening before. Some felt even traced for hours. Though each and everyone did their preparations really well.

At the day of days, everything went as expected. At about 8:35 AM the archmages and the scholar had given clearance for the successful ritual.

Enlightenment at North Pole

Sometimes life makes surprises, and suddenly you find yourself in such a place, which was not in your mind even couple of weeks ago.
In such a way, my life has turned out, and it was so that me, agent of Enlightened faction, got to the North Pole. It was interesting, it was hard, it was scary - but I must point out that there are no obstacles for Enlightenment - that is why my field flag is fluttering at the Russian ice station "Barneo" ... I had to sacrifice my 252 days of Sojourner medal, but it was worth it. I do not know how many agents were at the North Pole, but I can say for myself - I was, I saw, I know ... Enlightenment will find you at any corner of the Earth - resistance is futile! :)


Иногда жизнь преподносит сюрпризы и ты оказываешься в таком месте, о котором не подумал бы и пару недель назад.
Так и в моей жизни получилось, что я, агент просвещения, попал на северный полюс. Было интересно, было трудно, было страшно - но я не могу не отметить, что Просвещению ничто не помеха - и поэтому мой флаг развевается на русской ледовой станции Барнео... Пришлось пожертвовать 252 днями медали соджорнера, но это того стоит - не знаю, сколько агентов было на северном полюсе, но я могу сказать за себя - я был, я видел, я знаю... Просвещение найдет вас в любом уголке Земли, Сопротивление бесполезно! :)

Fast so gut wie das "butthurt" Formular ;-)
Ein Fehllink, allgemein auch als 'Wurstlink' bezeichnet kommt vor. Kein Thema.
In Zukunft werden alle Enlightened Spieler darum gebeten dies nicht mehr einfach auf die leichte Schulter zu nehmen sondern das unten angehängte Formular, welches freundlicherweise von Frau +Verena Niediek​ zur Verfügung gestellt wurde, auszufüllen und an das

Enlightened Büro Aachen
Abteilung für Linkangelegenheiten

zu schicken. Der Link wird dann überprüft und klassifiziert. Wie dann weiter damit Verfahren wird kommt dann auf den Einzelfall an.

Mad Fieldart Munich
Operation: White Unicorn ~  #München   07/18/2015 #SITREP  

During the Perseoplis anomaly in Bratislava, Enlightened agents from Austria and Munich planned on making a big event with agents from both communities. After discussing what exactly  we wanted to do, we decided to make a fieldart of Amuro Ray's Personal Emblem from the Anime "Mobile Suit Gundam", and so OPERATION:WHITE UNICORN was born.

On the 18th of July at 12:00, we all met at the old botanic garden to distribute keys and making a group picture. After 2 hours of clearing the field, capturing the 27 portals and deploying the 54 links we managed to complete the fieldart.

We even spent the rest of the day together, enjoying our well-deserved refreshments at the "Hofbräukeller Biergarten" and delicious dinner in the "Café am Nordbad"

Awesome Event, great people, so much fun, big thanks to the hosts !!!
ALLIED FORCES BERLIN

Five months ago we asked ourselves what we should do during Ingress summer without shards and anomalies. After we had so much fun in Hamburg at #GreenValentine   we decided to invite the Enlightened world to our beautiful capital - for more than just playing Ingress.The Date was set to July, 10th to July, 12th and first invitations were sent early in spring.

More than 320 Enlightened agents from 10 countries participated in this special event: The Netherlands, Italy, Sweden, Denmark, France, United Kingdom, Czech Republic, Poland, Serbia and Germany. So it was the biggest Ingress event in Europe not organized by Niantic.

We started with the first meet up and beautiful welcome packages for the participants on Friday at Alexanderplatz, right at the base of the Fernsehturm. While we had a really great evening without all that stress caused by smurfs and battles, the city turned blue. Even RES Germany followed our invitation and managed to built up additional 300 P8s for us! Such achievement, much portals, wow!

On Saturday morning all agents met at Spreebogenpark where a special event mission waited and the group picture took place. Meanwhile the first local RES player showed up. Thank you for welcoming us @Zorig, it was really a lot of fun! At 12:00 PM 16 farm2go teams with great guides started simultaneously to free the city of the more than 1800 blue P8. Within the next 4 hours we added 1000 green P8s and smashed almost as many blue ones. Smurfs who escorted our teams allowed us to make further unique captures while we destroyed more and more portals in the city.

In the evening we all met at the Pirates Beach Bar for a great party and BBQ with feet on sand directly at the river Spree and a great view of the Oberbaumbrücke, while the city turned blueish again. But at that moment, nearly no agent cared about it. We had a perfect day. We met all the agents we previously only knew from hangouts or posts on Google+ or only see at anomalies. And we spent a terrific time together. Let the smurfs prepare the playing field for Sunday, while we had fun chatting and chilling out.

Sunday morning, smurfs were busy during the night, perfect conditions for our teams to roam through the city again and gather more unique captures. The final meet up and chill out in the afternoon took place at Volkspark Friedrichshain, the place of the last cluster during Recursion in 2014 where many of us met the first time. It was rainy, but again we had a great time together.

Operation Allied Forces was a full success! Our main objective, enjoying Berlin in summer and taking home some great memories, has been reached. It was awesome! And it shows clearly that Ingress is not about portals. It’s about people!

And as promised, we even cracked another benchmark. ;)

A really big THANK YOU! to our sponsors!!
+LaserLogoShop your badges are awesome!! We really love them and it was certainly not the last time that you’ve heard from us!  Our next order at http://www.laserlogoshop.com isn’t too far away.
+LOST PLACE - Janine Draht thank you for helping us with flyers, gummy bears, stickers and hosting us to prepare all the swag at the Lost Place Shop. You are fabulous!

Thanks to all of our guests, who made this weekend a memorable experience! Also thanks to all smurfs helping us so our guests could get as many unique captures as they did!

First L16 portals in Munich built by local agents


On March 18th 2015, slightly more than two years after the first ENL L8 portal in Munich, we finally managed to build the first L16 portal only with local agents. Since “local” is a bit complicated to define in the world of Ingress, we gathered 11 L16 agents on site and built several portals in different combinations.
Even if someone claims, that L16 portals have improved output, nobody hacked them all to burnout, since we also had beer waiting at our weekly meeting ;-)

This great success for the Munich Enlightened could not have been achieved without this great community and the support and team spirit of their agents !!!

Beside the fun we had, we also did some serious math, to give you some numbers:

over half a billion AP in a single picture (509,444,544 AP)
25 black badges
30 platin badges
11 L16 agents in total (8 living in Munich, 10 working in Munich) 

#L16 agents (in alphabetical order):
@CaligulaGaius, @Dingel, @falkinator74, @GreenHamster, @kurzland, @salov, @Seaspotter, @Suedschwede, @thepir8, @yberion, @zettpe 


Greetings to all smurfs with good sportsmanship, let’s further enjoy this game and the challenges!
Kudos to Resistance for building the first L16 portal worldwide here in Munich, but only one part-time local was involved after the Helios event.

Operation BlIll   (Black Illuminators)
tl;dr:
6 Black Illuminator badges, 2 Level up to 16; with rebuilding a 8-layered million MU field 4 times

German below/Deutsch unten

Some weeks ago, I unexpectedly received a new black badge: The Illuminator.
About 14 months ago I took part in a multi-layered field operation for Enlightened Munich and was the lucky guy that had the opportunity to close 6 layers resulting in 4.4 million mind units.  
Now I had a badge for finishing something that would have been impossible without the countless agents in the field with clearing, doing key transfers, watching the intel map and more.
I wanted to say “thank you” to at least some other agents of my faction and designed a fielding plan over munich and with solely one purpose: Generate as much MU as possible for the agents at the anchors, without the need to drive hundreds of kilometers and give some agents the chance to enlighten their agent profiles with the black Illuminator badge or even L16. 
Sadly only few agents can profit of a megafield over munich, but I think the resulting six black illuminator badges and two new L16 agents and one to follow very soon (go go go,@wazoo!) were worth the effort and call for more.

The plan was risky but worked out great with every planned layer.
* Build eight fields from two single anchors to eight portals in a small city
* Flip first single anchor and rebuild the fields
* Flip second anchor and rebuild fields
* Flip anchors 2-8 in the small city (layer 1 stayed online as safety belt because the operation already lasted 30 minutes and nobody wants to see last minute blockers ;) )
* Rebuild the 7 layers (and fill the gaps as bonus)
Result:
31 * 1 million mind units (almost exactly, -+ 2k)
6 * Black Illuminator (@SeaSpotter, @ShinIce, @Intruder1362, @wazoo, @falkinator74, @veneficia)
2 * Level up to 16 (@SeaSpotter, @Intruder1362)
1 * Level up to 16 prepared (only 3 million AP missing)@wazoo

Assisted in clearing:
@GDtec, @Nalar, @Adipin, @Muilav, @Thayra, @achkomm, @Magurae, @thepir8, @fl0wfl0w, @Joker247, @MistaBee, @fightgirl, @microjane, @HiddenJoe, @Redkorora, @Sturmwurm, @Cassiopeia, @HannesPaul, @MisterGosh, @Lathressa, @Pinguin16, @Suedschwede, @BastyG, @ForzaDynamo, @alfusmaximus, @gruenekatze,(and myself for a totally unexpected blocklink with the exact length of the corridor)
Backup operator:@rostschraube

Thanks for the fast key transfers and any assistance I got in planning and execution during this operation, thanks to all members of the Enlightened Munich for this awesome community. 
And greetings to all Munich smurfs with good sportsmanship, let’s further enjoy this game and the challenges!

Deutsche Version

Vor einigen Wochen erhielt ich unerwartet meinen ersten Black Badge: Den Illuminator.
Vor ungefähr 14 Monaten war ich der Glückliche, der bei einem Multi-Layer Feld über München 6 Felder schließen durfte und hatte damit 4,4 Millionen Mind Units verbucht.
Ich hatte also einen Badge, der ohne die Hilfe der zahllosen Agenten im Feld und vor der Intel nicht möglich gewesen wäre.
Ich wollte nun “Danke” sagen, zumindest an einige Agents meiner Faction, und entwarf einen Feldplan über München mit einem einzigen Zweck: Möglichst viele MU für die Linkagents zu generieren, ohne dass Agenten hunderte Kilometer fahren müssen. Und damit einigen Agenten die Chance zu geben, ihr Profil mit einem Black Illuminator Badge zu erhellen oder sogar direkt Level 16 zu werden. 
Leider können nur wenige von einem Feld über München direkt profitieren aber ich denke, das Ergebnis mit 6 Black Illuminator Badges, zwei neuen Level 16 Spielern, einem kurz davor (Gib Gas,@wazoo!) kann sich sehen lassen und ruft nach mehr.

Der Plan war riskant, hat aber mit jedem geplanten Layer funktioniert:
* Acht Felder von zwei einzelnen Ankern auf acht Portale einer Kleinstadt aufbauen 
* Ersten Einzelanker flippen und Felder neu aufbauen
* Zweiten Einzelanker flippen und Felder neu aufbauen
* Die Anker 2-8 in der Kleinstadt flippen (Layer 1 blieb stehen um kein zusätzliches Risiko einzugehen, da die Operation schon 30 Minuten dauerte)
* Neuaufbau der letzten 7 Layer und Füllen der Lücken

Ergebnis:
siehe oberhalb des deutschen Textes

Danke für die schnellen Key Transfers und jegliche Unterstützung, die ich während der Planung und Durchführung erhalten habe.
Danke auch an alle Enlightened Munich für die großartige Gemeinschaft!
Grüße auch an die Münchner Schlümpfe, die es sportlich nehmen und weiterhin mit uns Spaß am Spiel haben und den Wettbewerb suchen.
