Enlighten You'll be!!

Dear +Brandon Badger,  +Ingress,  +Joe Philley,  +Brian Rose  +Anne Beuttenmüller,
        I know you guys work really hard and have put in a lot of efforts to catch people who cheat #sarcasm, so, We, Enlightened India have decided to enlighten you about the op that Resistance India did, Operation Uprising.

       So, here I am, trying to enlighten you about how Resistance India finishes OPs. One thing I would like to mention, they did put in a lot of efforts on this one, and it would not have been possible to simply wake up from sleep one fine day and do an OP. Since they were putting in efforts, it was logical to reach the outcome, wasn't it?? But at what cost? I can't say about Resistance India, but I'm pretty sure that Resistance Mumbai would go to any length, that includes spoofing, multi accounts, etc, etc, etc…

Coming back to proof, which I'm sure many of you would be asking for….

Ok, lemme tell you a story..    Is it the effect of XM or am I truly enlightened, that I’m always at the wrong place at the wrong time for Resistance India?? We can search for answer of this question later. But what can be concluded from this question is that, I, Enlightened Agent @TheWanderingGod, happened to be present at the spot to take down the mega-fields that were created from Navi Mumbai (Kharghar). I was working in my office nearby and as soon as I was informed about this mega-field through our Intel co-ordinators, I rushed to site. After destroying 3 mega-fields, I realized that three more mega-fields had come up. I rushed to those portals, and saw resistance agents about to create another link. They stopped linking after seeing me and I managed to destroy all the CF’s, and after talking to them I realized they're planning to relink again. So, I called up my teammate, Agent @prophetin +sameer batavia in Nashik(Almost 160 kms up north of mumbai) and asked him to throw some blocking links. We agreed upon the portal Wadhwan Mandir (,72.685094&z=15&pll=19.924742,72.677067)
 in Tigrepada (which is some 150kms from Mumbai city limits up north), but I was told that the portal was not showing up in his keys for linking, and instead Boisar station (,72.745561&z=13) (around 115 kms from Mumbai city limits up north) was available for linking. I asked him to throw the link and blocking link was established. At the same time, teammate Agent Th3Shap3r +Virendra Giri threw links from Airoli (Navi Mumbai) to Powai (Mumbai), and both of these were supposed to act as a blocking link for the Alibaugh-Delhi Resistance link. After confirmation of the 2-link block in place, I returned back to my office, feeling satisfied that the links were in place and the Resistance OP had been successfully blocked to a great extent on the Mumbai end of things.

Upon enquiry with Enl Agent @prophetin on why he wasn't able to to throw the originally planned blocking link to the more remote portal of Wadhawan Mandir in Tigrepada, it was found that the portal was missing a resonator. Strangely, only one single resonator. As we set upon to investigate on how a lone portal, 150+kms away from the city limits of Mumbai, was missing a resonator, we found that it was under attack by Resistance Agent, Jahapanah(Level 6) about an hour ago, who solely destroyed one single resonator when he could have captured the portal (which is a really important portal for both the teams as it is one of the few portals that can anchor a field covering 90% of Mumbai). Nobody in the entire Enlightened Mumbai community has ever met this agent before, so we grew suspicious. As we were speculating about what had happened, teammate Agent prophetin informed that his city, Nashik, was under a blue field. Almost simultaneously, we were informed that Res Agent @Jahapanah had now Ada’d the portal of Boisar, thus taking down the first blocking link. Before we could react to this, my scanner notified that my home portal (Airoli, Navi Mumbai) is under attack by Resistance Agent,@Chankyaneeti.This was the anchor to the second blocking link, and was again, destroyed by an agent which was not known to any in the Mumbai Enlightened community. Suspicious again.
This was the story based on incidents in real life.

Now comes the proof part on the two Resistance Agents:@Jahapanah and @ChankyaNeeti.
Both of these agents destroyed key blocking links merely minutes before the vital Resistance base links were established, which points that they were, to whatever extent, knowing of the Resistance OP. Their contribution to Operation Uprising was monumentally large, as the Alibaugh-Delhi link which they helped clear the way for, was subsequently used for another mega-field. Yet, strangely enough, they receive no mention whatsoever in the Operation Sitrep ( Compounding this anomaly of strangeness is the fact that these agents were chosen over other veteran Resistance Agents, who would have been more than willing to help had they been called upon (Resistance to Enlightened ratio in Mumbai is close to 3:1, which gives you a lot of bored agents longing for some action). 

Talking about agent @Jahapanah in a timeline fashion, he went to Wadhwan temple in Tigrepada (150+kms from Mumbai). Cool!! But he travelled all the way to a village to only destroy one resonator?? One does not simply go to such a remote location, which houses one of the most isolated (and important for both teams) portal and just destroy a single resonator. And 90 mins later (which is possible), this guy Ada’ed Boisar Station, which was the blocking link anchor. The activity of this agent has been suspicious on many previous occasions. He has never met anyone, slipping away when people start looking for him, and has always managed to destroy anchor portals of fields created by Mumbai Enlightened.

Now, agent @ChanakyaNeeti. A couple of months ago, we found his activity in Mumbai and found it suspicious on grounds of spoofing and a being a multi-id. Upon inquiry then, by my teammate, Agent @NaamTohSunaHoga, we were told by him that he was from a different city (Udaipur) in a different state (Rajasthan) where his family resides. And the guy only manages to spend weekends with them. Okay, believable so far, we dropped the incident.
And now suddenly, Agent @ChanakyaNeeti appears out of nowhere, on a Sunday afternoon, selflessly saving the Resistance OP by taking down a key blocking anchor. All of this when there were many Resistance agents present close enough, who could have done the needful when called upon. At this stage, I feel sorry for the poor guy, a foreign agent unknown by most in Mumbai, as he was visiting an area where he had no prior activity, traversing local bylanes all on his own and then accurately destroying only the block-link anchor in a cluster of portals. After spending his Sunday afternoon away from his family, he didn’t even receive so much as a thanks and a mention in the Resistance Sitrep. Sad. Very sad. Unless he is a multi account and a suicide spoofer. In which case, all of it would suddenly start making sense.

Wow. What an OP.

My question to Resistance Mumbai, Resistance India, Ingress and to everyone who has managed to follow it till this stage:
         1. Who are these agents,@Jahapanah and @ChankyaNeeti? Can anyone personally vouch for their legitimacy, having played alongside them?
         2. Do these agents have a Google+ profile, which oh-so-conveniently was not made upon reading this?
         3. Why weren't these agents mentioned in the Sitrep, when their activity was pivotal to the success of the OP? The least that could have been done is to acknowledge their presence, seeing the fact that at least one of them was not even a local.
         4. Why were they chosen over other veteran Resistance Agents? Do you trust them more than your legitimate teammates?
         5. Are they part of your planning circles? Most of Resistance Mumbai wasn't aware of the details (or even the happening) of this OP (as is the case for every OP), yet these two agents managed to co-ordinate with clockwork precision with the team at Alibaugh.
         6. Is your OP still deemed a social success, when a part of it is captured in your sitreps and has plenty of photographs taken, while an equally important (or even more, arguably) part goes thankless, without even a memento of participation?

Now would be a good time to come clean on this particular operation. It was a success on the other ends, and my respect goes to the agents who went to the Alibaugh island portals and made it Level 8, but unfortunately, the Mumbai end of Resistance operations remains as murky as they have ever been.

+Ingress  +NIA Ops  Please do verify the agents @Jahapanah and @ChanakyaNeeti, unless you wish to feature spoofer and multi-account based Operations in the weekly Ingress Report. In which case, may the powers-that-be help save this “game”.

This a Suspicion-Report on a possible green spoofer-cum-rogue agent, Bananza.
Why a suspicion-report? Are we really this paranoid? Well, the circumstances at the moment compel us to be this apprehensive, and we believe it would be best if +NIA Ops was informed of this suspicion as soon as possible, lest it become a bigger problem in the coming few hours.
A brief introduction:
Bangalore has the target portal for the resistance artifact. The Resistance, to their credit, skillfully managed to transport the artifact across from the continent of Africa to a portal really close to the target portal. After what was a spirited dog-fight in the middle of the night, Enlightened Bangalore managed to hold guard and transport the artifact to Mahabaleshwar, where another team was awaiting its arrival.  So far so good.
Enlightened Hangouts have been buzzing all day with people keeping tabs on the artifact. The Mahabaleshwar portal was chosen as it had little-to-no resistance, and travelling to the Mahabaleshwar itself is like a weekend getaway. Perfect for an artifact to be guarded for a few hours, and in accordance with all rules set by +Ingress, including being freely accessible by the public.
Some time during the last hour, we saw a new Enlightened Agent, @Bananza, making a link in Mahabaleshwar. It piqued the curiosity of our eye-in-the-sky. Upon sounding a cautionary alert, we discovered the new Agent deploying Link Amps on some key portals in Mahabaleshwar. Maybe a co-incidence? We checked on all our routine plans, and to our astonishment, find that the agent @Bananza also has a Heat-Sink deployed on the Artifact portal in Bangalore! The travel between the Bangalore Artifact Destination portal to the Mahabaleshwar portal (where the artifact is held) takes at the very least, 10 and half hours. Also the fact that Mahabaleshwar doesnot have an airport and the nearest airport is at pune which is 3.5 hours journey on road. The newbie agent managed to deploy a mod on the perhaps the most important portal on the planet at this moment, and then travelled all the way to play at arguably the second most important portal on the planet at this moment.
We believe in co-incidences, but not in co-incidences of co-incidences.
+NIA Ops +Ingress +Brandon Badger +Anne Beuttenmüller +Joe Philley, please look into the issue before it evolves into something more harder-to-ascertain. We, Enlightened India, would be thankful.

Operation Buddhi

+Brandon Badger  +Joe Philley +Ingress 
Nikhil Singh originally shared:
Operation BudDhi
Buddhi denotes an aspect of mind that is higher than the rational mind and that is attracted to Brahman.*

"BudDhi" also happens to be the handle of Agent  +rahul michael
who is no longer among us. In this game where we make links and connections between so many people, the loss of a fellow agent made us see the reality of life. The journey is short... Make the most of it. Make friends, spread happiness, make beautiful memories and enjoy every moment of it.

@BudDhi this op is for you.

This op is an effort by agents from Bangalore, Pune, Nashik, Mumbai, Rourkela, Hyderabad, Warangal, Chennai and Coimbatore led by +Sachin Shenoy (@sheldor).
The Goal:
The Goal was to do an op that will really challenge us. These were some of the challenges of this op that excited us.
 ● Do the first true 5 Billion MU Op (without counting any existing fields)
 ● Send links through the heart of densely populated city of Bangalore.
 ● Do the Op from an ingress active city than from a remote city.
 ● Make India’s first 50+ layered Field.

Facts and Figures:
 ● The Op saw 109 links, 54 layers, 5.94 billion MU, with 5.3B+ MU coming from this Op alone.
 ● The entire linking was executed in 64 minutes, among 4 cities. With Bangalore closing in 29 layers, each 90 million MU worth.
 ● The op contributed 3.21B additional MU (only from this op) across the checkpoint.
 ● As preparation for the Op, we had covered Bangalore in 2 layers. 
 ● We cleared Bangalore city to let links pass through. We used 17 ADA over all.
 ● Cities used: Bangalore, Trichy, Nashik and Rourkela.
 ● The city of Bangalore was in quarantine (no links to be made) for over a week.
 ● Nashik had only 1 Enlightened agent, hence 3 agents from Mumbai and 1 from Pune travelled there.
 ● Trichy had no resident Enlightened agent, hence 3 agents from Bangalore, and 1 agent from Chennai, and 1 from Germany travelled there :-).
 ● The planning and execution of the Op took total of 2 months.
 ● Every agent involved in the Op exactly knew the plan, and had full access to the main plan document.

Cities Used:
 ► Bangalore anchored 30 as per plan (but we dropped 4 portals hours before op was to start), 
 ► Trichy anchored 16 portals, 
 ► Nashik anchored 9 portals.
 ► Rourkela anchored 6 portals.

      The Operation was divided into four mini-ops to help keep things organized. They were, “Crosslink Op”, “Cover-up Op”, “Clean-up Op” and “Field-Op”.

Crosslink Op:
The goal was to clear existing blue cross links and set up our own cross links, which can go down on request. We didn’t want to take down blue cross links too early, hence the plan was to do it just a day before the Field Op. 

Since the links from Nashik to Rourkela were brushing the city of Nagpur, and there were few blue cross links standing there, Nagpur Agent,@BudDhi had agreed to clear it up for us.

Cross links from three other cities, Pune, Warangal, and Chennai were taken care by respective agents.

Cover-up Op:
The idea was to cover Bangalore in green so that new links can’t be formed, and in that secure green field we will execute the “Clean-up Op” where we tear down the thick link fabric of the city. And when we are ready, the covers will be removed and the links will be sent through the city.

We chose to put two layers over Bangalore, so that we have time to take evasive action if one layer were taken down. The layers were anchored far from the city, and yet the size of the layers were kept small, so that RES agents won’t take the trouble of taking it down immediately.

Also other cross links were established from various cities in anticipation of possible cross links from RES to keep ourselves safe. 

Clean-up Op:
The chosen layer plan required 21 links to pass right through the heart of the city. ENL agents were thrilled by the prospect of this, and planned weeks ahead, documenting the portals and the regions where we had to clear crosslinks. Just a week before the Op was to happen, a quarantine was established all across bangalore, to avoid linking any portals that will eventually be a crosslink. This allowed most of the green links to die, saving us many ADA’s and making the cleanup easy.

Special thanks to Newbies, who despite having the eagerness to level up,  stood by us by not making any links for a whole week!

When the covers came up by 6:00PM, Resistance were under the impression that we were doing this only for the regional win. During the cover period, we cleared only the Resistance cross links within the city and made it look only like we were making as many portals green. The ENL cross links were cleared with ADA’s only late in the night around 11:00PM so as to not raise any suspicion. 

FIeld Op:
The plan was to make 119 links in 90 minutes, with 59 layers. Just before execution had to start, we had to drop 3 layers due to shortage of agents, and 1 layer as the portal got shifted. The new plan was to do 55 layers.

The cover as predicted stayed until the next day morning. Agents in Chennai, Warangal, Trichy and Coimbatore were ready at the respective portals, by morning 6:30am, to ADA the green cover and crosslinks we had established. 

On 2nd Feb, 7:50AM IST, the cover was ADA’ed, and the Op started. 

Nashik agents made the anchor links to rourkela, which set up the base for the fields. After they set up the first link, Bangalore started creating the inner fields in order. At the same time, Nashik quickly sent 14 links to Portals in Bangalore and 5 agents in trichy started sending links right through Bangalore to Nashik. The cleanup operation done on the previous day, was perfect, not a single link failed to go through the city. Once bangalore was done with its 28 layers in 33 minutes, Trichy took over the job of closing the fields. Due to an unforeseen issue during execution, we had to drop one layer in Trichy. 

Op controller later said that it was a pleasure watching the team execute. The entire execution team worked like a well oiled machine, with no breaks or interruption. They were churning out one link after another like a pro, at a rate of about two links per minute till the end.

At the end we made 109 links and 54 layers, in under 64 minutes, and one of the greatest op we have experienced had just ended. There were huddle in the field, there were phone calls made, there were smiles exchanged - we all were soaking in the moment. After all it is the experience and journey that we were really after, the MU and field and the layers, were just a reason.
