Why are Niantic so biased towards the Enlightenment??? Here's a classic example from the scanner app. Go to Intel -> Regional Scores and try to get the blue bar displaying above the green one. It's impossible - I've been trying to work out how to do it for a whole year.

I'm going to write to my MP and sulk in McDonalds throwing things at Pokemon.

Will be traveling through London soon, What kind of gameplay can a person expect near the London Bridge? Is it normally blue or green or is it a high turnover?

Help! My deskie has disappeared. Can it evaporate from being virused too many times? Is there a limit? I've only flipped it 273 times. Who do I report it to?

Hello my name is girl in a gale and I'm a glyph addict. I want to stop but my AP says no.

I used a Lawson power cube but got much more than I bargained for.

Beware Enlightenment disinformation. One of them told me about making P8s by repeatedly flipping a portal. I've flipped my desk portal 48 times this week and it's STILL only P5. :(

Hooray we won the series again. We couldn't have done it without that lovely win in London, so many thanks to all the smurfs who worked hard for it. I think I've worked out why you frogs are pretending to be blue in here as well, but you can't pretend to win forever. Take some pride in yourselves and I'm sure you will start to do better. Thanks for being a fun opposition!
The Oakland #Abaddon Anomaly has come to an end, and with it, the conclusion of the #Abaddon Anomaly Series.

In Oakland, the Enlightened dominated. They had a strong start, and continually built upon it to end with a lead of 2260.

In Forth Worth, despite a dogged opponent that chased them every step of the way, the Enlightened ultimately claimed victory with a margin of 162 thanks to a strong performance in the Final Measurement.

In Lima, the Resistance remained the stronger force, capturing the site with a lead of 469.

And in Phoenix, the Enlightened seemed to be on an unstoppable train. They captured this Anomaly with a margin of 1696.

The final #Abaddon Anomaly belongs to the Enlightened. They outperformed their opponents by 3524.

Ezekiel Calvin. Creator of the Niantic Project, and a man of many secrets, is now under Enlightened control. It is likely that they will put his deep well of knowledge on the ancient ways of XM to use in their struggle to contain the rising N’zeer force.

Despite this triumphant last effort, the #Abaddon Series belongs to the Resistance. Intelligence have suggested that this may inhibit efforts to return the XM patterns of the Niantic Researchers to their true human bodies -- instead re-awakening them as Simulacra -- better able to interface with the complex reality of the N’zeer. 

If the Anti-Magnus promise of knowledge, technological advancement and the resolution of human suffering is to be believed, many of these researchers are now a valuable force primed for change in our world. Others will stand poised against them in the battle for the hearts, minds, and future of the world.

Congratulations to all Agents who took part in this massive global phenomenon. From Flash Shard battles, to incredible Shard stratagems to the well oiled, many-headed machine of an Anomaly Control Force, this has truly been one to remember.

To the victorious: enjoy the fruit of your efforts. To those who await another opportunity for triumph: rest, plan, build. Many challenges lie ahead.

I know this is an enlightened troll community, but there doesn't seem to be much going on so I'll post some things for you all to be mean about. I hope you all managed to get your new badges!

It's been pretty quiet in here of late. Not getting bored are you?

More evidence of enlighteningment cheating over the weekend. First they wiped out our 8s, so we thwarted their plans with operation #dontBuildAny , now they've somehow found a way of taking out P8s before they can even get that far.

On Friday they managed to somehow remove hundreds of prime candidates, I reckon at least five of those would have made it to P8 within three months.

Who do I report this to? The cheating frogs MUST be using IITC or witchcraft or something.

Also, from watching player tracker, some of the stuff they managed to get to was nowhere near a single bus route. I have reported all of these as being inaccessible.
Wait while more posts are being loaded
