Ingress Christmas Countdown: The "must know" portals. Day 10/24 #ingressCountdown
To know where to go, you need to remember where you came from.

Name: C-Base Raumstation unter Berlin - Mitte
Description: a crashed spaceship
Location:  Berlin. Germany
Intel link: https://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=52.513099,13.42008&z=17&pll=52.513099,13.42008

Importance: local res HQ with the only #IngressTable which uses the official ingress API, a permanent blue farm, a shard hub and the RES afterparty location. What happens at c-base stays at c-base.

According to its official story (ingress-unrelated) C-base is a spaceship from the future, that crashed while exiting a time warp and landed in the past, in our time. This ship had plenty of advanced technologies on board. Scientists are still working work hard on recovering those technologies. No wonder, that this place became a local HQ of RES, who, according to the #ingress story line are for the technological advances instead of pimping up the mind activity by the influence of XM.

This place has earned “legendary” status as it was a part of many Ingress events. Berlin’s first closed beta invites for ingress came from here. It was the center of operations during the #Recursion finale and a shard hub for that finale.  The Recursion Afterparty at the c-base was the most epic anomaly after party ever. C-base was also a volatile portal during #ingressIO event back in 2014.  Thanks to this portal RES won the entire Anomaly!

Passcode cards for the world's first powercube were given away here after a Berlin event back in 2013. This was a day before the official release of power cubes. Yes, agents, there were times when we had no power cubes in our scanner and had to move around to collect XM.

Beside being a permanent blue P8 farm, a countless amount of  unique explorer badges were made at the c-base and a lot of XF Fieldarts where planned here.

C-base was honoured by a visit of niantic crew members  such as +John Hanke​ and +Klue S.​.

This portal even got stolen once. After being reported by ENL it was removed from the portal network. After a huge shitstorm on g+ it was back within 12 hours.

If you ever happen to visit c-base, do not miss to see the famous ingress table. This project is the only ingress hardware project that uses the official API.
