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. ;)
