Today on the show:

  • Diadact Field Challenge: https://www.agentacademypodcast.com/ingress-news/from-the-ingress-community-coming-soon-didact-field-challenge/
  • 4 New Avatars: https://www.agentacademypodcast.com/ingress-news/niantic-labs-announces-four-new-ingress-agent-avatars-now-available/
  • Vintage Akira Tsukasa Medal available for 1 more day as of this recording: https://www.agentacademypodcast.com/ingress-news/niantic-adds-vintage-akira-tsukasa-medal-for-1-week-only/
  • Two vanguards resigned this past week, First mm207a and then directly on mm207a’s heels, pinesinger – both attribute the resignation to losing the magic of Ingress mostly due to a declining player base.
  • Requiem Anomaly details updated: https://www.agentacademypodcast.com/ingress-news/requiem-anomaly-in-munich-events-page-updated/
  • Ingress Prime updated to 2.39.3: https://www.agentacademypodcast.com/ingress-news/nianticbrian-posted-the-release-notes-for-ingres-prime-v-2-39-3/
  • NianticBrian comments on the ghost resonators: “The latest update rolling out now (2.39) should help reduce the number of ghost resonators from occurring, but the issue can still occur with a lot of contention, like at First Saturday events. We’ll continue to investigate further, thanks.”
  • From PAC – Pass along a message from the NIA to all of our past, present, and future Tessare Discoverers. All the Agents that have participated since we first learned about the Tessellation in October, NIA would like to give a shout out to you. To be featured, please post photos of yourself at the target portals where the Tesserae dropped on your social channels ( Facebook, Twitter, Instagram…etc) #Ingress #Tessellation #Your faction. The NIA will then either retweet or share it on the official Ingress social channels. They recognize this isn’t much compared to your efforts, but we need to let more Agents know about you and your factions’ achievements. Every Tesserae retrieved, and every portal visited matters.
  • From Agent dayosteph – It is still possible to book for Ingress at Sea – we’re in the process of applying for a Mission Day and have asked Niantic to consider offering the same sojourner maintenance as last time, but have not heard back yet.   If the webpage is down because we’re past the Jan 30th deadline, you can book via phone by calling our agent, Chappy, at Cruises Only (number is on the website) – Tip of the week: as for a quick tip – checking your phone carrier for int’l plans is a great way to make sure you’ll have internet in port otherwise sim cards can usually be purchased locally as soon as you get off the ship
  • Tessletaion Round 6 scores – After round 6 Res leads with 63 followed by Enl with 58 and thankfully Nemesis lags behind with 50.
