11月6日清晨,忽有Jarvis Shard 將於香港降世之說,我輩聞之,既欣且懼。所欣也,驚世大戰,竟在眼前揭幕。所懼也,以香港競爭之烈,強敵之眾,要如何守住此物送往海外友軍之手,成就大事? 

尤可憂者,對手遠送 Jarvis Shard 至其雄霸的澳門之心已彰彰甚明。此物,非速走不可。 

我方有志之士,馬上聯繫海外友軍,策劃路線,點算手上可用key交相傳遞...... 千頭萬緒,首要之務,無如堅壁清野 ---- 堅降世portal之壁,清去路長link之野。 

時未過午,可動員的將士已在香港境外建成重重長link,而尖沙咀則固守絕link,確保Jarvis Shard 於尖沙咀鐘樓降世之後,即在我輩掌握之中。 

轉送之路久經籌謀,以對手無法於一小時內到逹為要,又須在包圍香港長link之間一個意想不到的角度送往一個意想不到之地。最後選定路線為首站喜靈洲,尾站長洲,再直送越南。 

計算已定,及至傍晚,我方人馬放工後隨即各就其位: 尖沙咀者靜守鐘樓,西環者橫掃往下一站喜靈洲之路,長洲者探視離港最後一站。 

時近立冬,夜涼如水,對手輪番相犯,全靠五十餘位友軍挻身固守。對手師老無功,竟自離去。然而更深人靜,久候無期,部份朋友亦不得不回家休息。即便如此,仍幸有為數不少有志之士決心負起傳送 Jarvis Shard至越南深山之責。 

11月7日本地時間04:32,Jarvis Shard終於在尖沙咀鐘樓 ( http://goo.gl/kfDC3S) 出現 ! 近 05:00 在場苦候多時的掌匙人抓緊時機,把Jarvis Shard由熙來攘往的尖沙咀送到人跡少至的喜靈洲( http://goo.gl/5S8hdk) 戒毒所 ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hei_Ling_Chau ) 以期為Jarvis 脫毒。我方隨即破壞尖沙咀至喜靈洲長link,永絕其回頭路。 

時近 06:00 長洲守候的掌匙人即以同樣方法,將Jarvis Shard由喜靈洲接到長洲。 

到 07:00,四名L8於長洲築起portal,大加link amp,將Jarvis Shard #4 由長洲張保仔( http://goo.gl/cHdrkL ) 凌虛飛渡遞戒出境至越南深山骨罈 ( http://goo.gl/NpKXjv ) 好讓Jarvis安息。 

護送Jarvis Shard前往阿根延前路漫漫,毫不平坦。可預期驚心之處只有過此戰而無不及。即便如此,只要環球Resistance 如同本港眾人一般同心同德,更有何事不可為? 

6 November early morning -- When we found out that a shard of Jarvis will spawn in Hong Kong, we were delighted and horrified. Delighted, to be involved in this global gameplay. Horrified, as Hong Kong’s Ingress population and frequency of portals changing hands would make it extremely difficult to transfer out of Hong Kong. 

It was without doubt that we must transfer the shard out of Hong Kong immediately, especially noting our local EN’s attempt to transfer it to Macau where it is an Enlightened stronghold.  

While we liaised with Resistance agents globally on the route to take, keys available to us, and who will receive it, we started preparing the playing field.  

With the assistance of agents at work and mobile agents, strategic links were immediately launched to block any links to/from the anticipated portal (Clock Tower), effectively boxing in Hong Kong from other countries. Agents scattered to source for/exchange keys. A call was made for Resistance agents to descend upon Tsim Sha Tsui where Clock Tower is, some to stay at various locations for strategic linkage, and for all unrequested linking to cease. 

As the end of office hours draw close, teams rushed to their agreed places - Tsim Sha Shui, where the battle ground is; Island West to build or remove block links towards Hei Ling Chau, our first transfer destination; and Cheung Chau, our second destination. We decided to use these two portals enroute as they are not easily accessible within an hour --- the time required for the Shard to move again. 

For the next several hours, we stood by, ready and in anticipation of the appearance of the Jarvis shard. The battle on ground zero was fierce, and surrounding teams sped around, taking no chances with potential link threats. Here, we would like to express our most sincere thanks to all agents that came out last night and braved the cold. No one knew the exact time it would appear, yet over 50 agents turned up, showing initiative in securing the field to our advantage, patience, trust, and demonstrating teamwork at its finest. 

Although the numbers dwindled as midnight approached and most had to regretfully leave due to transport or work, several agents stayed at their respective posts in the three destinations, ready for when the time comes. The playing field was ready - Enlightened agents have left, agents are in place, links blocking our plan were flipped. We were determined to deliver the shard out to our agreed location - Vietnam. 

7 November, 4:32am local time -- the shard finally spawned. From Clock Tower in Tsim Sha Shui ( http://goo.gl/kfDC3S ), we waited until it was close to 5am and linked it to Hei Ling Chau Pavilion in Hei Ling Chau ( http://goo.gl/5S8hdk ). Hei Ling Chau was picked for 2 reasons. Firstly, for the remoteness of the Portal as it cannot be reached until the next available ferry there, and secondly, to cleanse the Jarvis Shard at Hei Ling Chau’s well known Addiction Treatment Centre ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hei_Ling_Chau ). Clock Tower was immediately Jarvis’d to break the remaining link, sending it on a path of no return. 

Right before 6am, Hei Ling Chau Pavilion was linked to from Cheung Chau, and likewise, the originating portal at Cheung Chau was flipped. 

At 7am, we waved goodbye to Shard #4 as the link went from Cheung Po Tsai (張保仔) Cheung Chau, Hong Kong ( http://goo.gl/cHdrkL ) to Giant Urn in Nha Trang, Vietnam ( http://goo.gl/NpKXjv ), a portal specially chosen for its name and remoteness of the location, where it would hopefully buy global Resistance a little bit more time to plan. 

Again, thank you to all the agents involved. The success of the plan was dependent on everyone’s cooperation, and because you, the plan went ahead flawlessly. 

The story does not end there. The journey to Argentina will be riddled with obstacles, but we have faith that Resistance will conquer. Best of luck, and we will be cheering along the way. 

SHARD #4, we will be watching.
