OP Aroganța

One of our oldest unfinished plans was to shoot a long link from the middle of Bucharest, capital of Romania. As the number of portals and agents grew, that became harder and harder.

Did you know that Bucharest will host an Anomaly on November 17th? Sign up now on enl.rocks/bucharest & come hear about this story (and many better ones!) straight from the agents involved!
[ - - - - - - - - - RECOVERY SUCCESSFUL. RESUMING - - - - - - - - - - - - - ]

Last week, a "rogue agent" (ex-agent, now) covered the city with a blue field. Players had enough of these and refused to take it down. We played under the field for more than a week, and, as the blue links became fewer and fewer (dissapearing completely in the Western part), +Smurf Fracker came up with the idea - wouldn't it be cool to field big from the city centre? +Dan Boabes announced he was traveling near one of the anchors in a couple of days, and a plan began to form:
* +Cristian Iliescu created a solid plan, based on his links in South-Eastern Romania, and took part in the cleaning
* +Diana-Alina Olaru was co-opted as operator
* keys were exchanged
* last remaining blockers were cleared - under the field by +Marius Petcu and me, in the East by @catagrasul and @Nef4ri0us. Many thanks to our colleagues @Axel3021 and @Vargaluta , whose portals got ADAd - we'll make it up to you!

When the day came, everything was planned to the second; we knew that a lot of players would be out and about at noon, and long blockers would pop up as soon as the overhead field went down. Everything went according to plan, Dan took down the blue field, and almost imediately a new green field took its place, anchored in the middle of Bucharest! Everything else was a bonus - extra layers, a small starburst, the multiple layers in DrT, the laughter in chats at the nerve of the operation :)

Shout out to a couple of smurfs - @euRonin threw some good blockers in the East and blocked a few extra layers, and @cronos15 who arrived in about 30 minutes to take down the inner-city anchor.

Agent @sanshine signing out!

I've been keeping all my emails since 2002.
Browsing some of old ones and found "predictions for 2004" ...
"WAP page impressions will grow to 13 billion next year."
This sounds like from ancient times... But only 12 years passed.

Rest in peace, Frank!

Deeply impressed! Thank you +Moldovan Cosmin
And there is that...
My humble contribution for the wonderful people playing Ingress in Romania, Enlightened Faction, especially those first time partners for whom I feel deeply connected.
On 2nd of August 2015, after a 5 hours continuous climbing from The 2 Towers Cabin (1520 m), I reached The Moldoveanu Peak (2544 m) în The Făgăraș Mountains and installed this plaque and so the names of some great players : +Ramona Ionescu​, +Alex Cruceru​, +Dan Boabes​ will always be remembered by all that reach the highest mountain in Romania.
Cheers to all!
PS : Happy Birthday, +Dan Boabes
