Hi there! I really want to share something awesome that happened last night, cross-faction. I am an Enl player and my vehicle's battery was dead when I got to it after work last night. I put a call out in our slack and on the Ingress Comms channel for a jumpstart/ momman and MollyTov (both Res players) responded immediately! They contacted another player, Ttalis through their Res channels and he willingly came to assist right away! I feel so much gratitude to them for helping, for their kindness and willingness to help another player in the name of "cross-faction love". Words fail to express the respect I have for these players, for the Res team, to extend assistance to an Enl player in need. As Ttalis said - we all play the same game regardless of blue/green colour. A huge shout-out to momman, MollyTov and Ttalis!! You have my respect and gratitude, ten-fold!

At the recent #ingressfs  event put on by +Vancouver Island Ingress Players Association I debuted the latest #Lego   #ingress  gear item, the VR Shield! I was happy that it was overshadowed by such a successful event that included visitors +Fev Games and +Linda Besh and our highest turnout ever for a xfaction event. Final AP scores of 3,007,574 for Res and 3,057,406 for Enl with +Fevenis Silverwind winning most AP overall, plus 5 levels gained by blewbs and newts alike! 
Please also check out more awesome #yyj  Ingress creativity by our local luminary +Erin Wolanksi Langstaff's prize painting: 

Instructions will follow eventually, probably in the same format as the portal key: https://plus.google.com/+JosephWilliamsVictoriaCA/posts/57PkNoWDQ1A

Hello all. Going to join the Ingress world and was wondering which side is currently more dominant right now. I would rather balance the fight then continue a one sided swing. If they are about equal i will just choose based on flavour preference. Thanks.
