Resistance Agents rallied on the ground in the Primary and Satellite Sites as well as in many Regional Cells to take the first Anomaly in the #Helios Series. Defeating the Enlightened by over 500, they have sent a clear message: Despite the ideological divisions emerging from sources like Devra Bogdanovich, the Resistance movement is a united force.
The Helios Series stands 4-0, Resistance leading.

Real Life Tragedy

Such a terrible tragedy.
Our sympathies go out to those that knew him. We hope that his child will bring them some comfort as a lasting living legacy.

Some of you may have seen +Ben / 00987 's recent post about the death of Resistance agent Boxit in a motorcycle accident on Friday 18 July. This is obviously a very difficult time for friends and family. What Ben did not say was that Boxit's girlfriend is pregnant; due to have their baby in December.

It can't be an easy time for her, and I would like to show support for her and her soon-to-be-born child from the North East (and wider) Ingress resistance community.

The owner of the Ingress Resistance Funding Network has agreed to let us use his site to host a whip-around. Money cannot make this time easier, but we can help take the sting out of some other things.

Please dig deep and help if you can.

UK story....we had some fun.

Central link

Our team of 6 agents were well organised and had been removing blocking links at a steady pace all week, leaving us with only a couple of blockers to knockout on the night. At 10:15 pm @eskpe, @Phlashster, @Els1e and @quasarnemesis all met up in Long Eaton (central point of our area) and continued checking intel in case any more blockers came up, waiting about 20 minutes away from last target site of the night -  a blue portal in the village of Gotham which would need Jarvising at the last minute to avoid alerting greens.
The area we were waiting was full of lots of green portals,@quasarnemesis was the only team member who had not been to that area previously, all the portals would have been unique captures, but so the op would remain  under the radar they had to be left alone, so he had to console himself with merely increasing unique visit count instead and we managed to remain undetected by the greens despite our rather ‘discrete’ choice of transportation.

At 11:35pm slightly later than planned due to being distracted by hacking all the green portals (they were L6 and we all needed L6 resonators!)@eskpe and @Phlashster jumped in the Ingressed MX5 and sped to Gotham at breakneck speed (we beat the satnav time by 5min) to take out the final blocker just before the main link went in.
Agents involved:@krink, @Valash, @eskpe, @Phlashster, @Els1e, @quasarnemesis

Eastern Central Link

After a last minute confession of his late night intentions to the family @bakeri666 set off to sleaford to meet @TheKezStrel at 2300. There was a slight delay meeting up as @TheKezStrel got a visit from a friend as he was setting off. They then proceeded to sit in a carpark awaiting orders, as during planning blocking links had already fallen leaving them only with defending late night frog action. The wait was made entertaining to @bakeri66 as he listened to the rather surreal explanation of ingress to @TheKezStrel's lift. This was interrupted by @PS237 informing us he was sat by KFC, causing much jealousy that we had no chicken. After a job well done, and a successful Operation Orange Juice with no Chicken, it was home to bed to dream of Chicken and @mimtwin, not necessarily in that order.

@ps237 set out early to allow myself time to disable 5 portals that the frog's could have linked to then I moved to my primary target which I sorted with a jarvis and rebuilt leaving unlinkable after returning to the car. Over the hangout chat I proceeded to wind up the rest of the team with pics of the KFC i was parked outside of but I promise i didn't have a boneless banquet or fillet burger I was really good honest. On a more serious note though I got lucky as at 0245 Boston was hit hard by a L10 frog agent who we must have caught with his pants down well done to all involved i really enjoyed my 1st op and hope we can all work together again in the future also i hope we can all stay in touch via the group's.


@trouserdeagle spent much of Saturday seething with rage at the horrible green P7 that was a result of Jarvising a local blocking link, but was calmed by the blue blanket overhead.

Northern Team

After a last minute request by @virtek, @insanityinside decided it’d be a good way to break the motorbike back in after winter by going farming and then taking an epic journey up to Penrith to wipe out a pile of green portals, which the greens decided to link to repeatedly to try and block our efforts, and do his bit for the team. He’d clearly forgotten how far away Penrith is, especially on a motorbike; is now walking like John Wayne, and is also quite sick of having to run with the bike to bump start it after the battery decided to die. Finally arriving at the initial targets at about 11:30PM, after having the crazy idea in his head it might actually still be light when he got there in the first place. Following the instructions from the eyes in the sky, the green was wiped off the map, clearing the links to Carlisle and over in the lake district, but the greens were being incredibly persistent. Heroically “volunteering” to ride up to Carlisle to clear the mess (well, grumpily offering in the hangout, possibly while swearing a lot) when running purely on caffeine and sugar, he set off to wipe the smile off the green faces, but unfortunately by the time the arrival time the Irish team were sick of being cold and wet in the dark, which is something he could relate to. Well, apart from the wet bit. Finally bugged out at about 1:45AM, finally making it back to base at 4:30AM, after several stops and coffees. Noticed he was being chased by the sunrise, and that birds were tweeting. Still hasn't managed to meet @FthrJack, despite the chap having submitted most of his local portals and crossed paths a good few times.


After an epic journey to Ailsa Craig, agent @Chandy was all set to settle down for the night when @AnandaUK realised she hadn't heard from the agents who were supposed to be clearing some links along the M74.  After trying to reach the agents by several means, she gave up and convinced him @23:15 he should drive an hour to take out the links. Unfortunately by the time the links were clear, the Irish agents found the link could no longer be made, so he took the opportunity to wipe out the green town of Lesmahagow and grab some uniques.

Wales / Shropshire

@Darwynne,@scathophagus,@c0d3x42,@Antpirc and @yrunigan made preparations during the week for clearance through Wales and Shropshire.  On Saturday afternoon,@ZenithUK went through Shropshire throwing Jarvis viruses and fields in his wake.  Upon reaching Lilleshall in the late afternoon, he claimed the portals and threw a field to Shrewsbury.  This field ran parallel to the proposed main link path within about 125m.  Along with an existing field at Donnington, the aperture for the main link would be only 700m wide!

@ZenithUK then travelled west to meet up with @Antpirc in Machynlleth, throwing fields and cleaning green in equal measure.  @Antpirc was on his way from Aberystwyth where he'd cleared a green block from Aberystwyth to Dublin.  By the time @Antpirc and @ZenithUK met up about 22:00, the local greens had already cleared the remaining problem links in Machynlleth!  All that was left was to munch the 99p fish and chips meal from Hennigan's (special price for Norway Day).

@c0d3x42 was in Newtown near the lynchpin portals holding up the remaining blue links. At 22:52,@c0d3x42 threw 2 Jarvis Viruses to drop the last remaining blue blocks.  The way from Wales coast through to Stafford was clear!

320 miles. 13 hours. Over 300k MU in fields. It must be an Ingress operation roadtrip!


@mimtwin spent the night on Cromer Pier, making tiny comedy fields to the Netherlands and being jealous of the Lincolnshire lot because Cromer has no KFC. Hangouts were fun though!

After an epic journey to Ailsa Craig a very cold and wet @AnandaUK came home and snuggled up under a duvet to get warm. 3 hours later she woke up and realised she was 2 hours late for helping with intel on O2J!! After panicking she quickly set up and joined all the relevant hangouts and got to work directing clearance teams.

It was fun! Thanks all.

Stout Blue Oak

That's what we like to see, nice work soldiers.
Never say die, impossible is just a word.

They said it couldn't be done. Impossible they said. We are the Resistance, we can achieve any objective. For a brief time today, the St Albans frogs knew terror. They knew what it was to be dominated. A massive thank you to all involved, especially Dave and Jamie who cleared a ton of blockers and drove all over the place. Thanks to James for the quick Jarvising of an unfortunate blue blocker and to everyone who turned out. Everyone played a vital part. This was just shy of 30K MU but it was an immeasurable message to the St Albans Enlightened. We Are Restistance. Fear Us.
This op had ten active agents, took 30 portals killed to clear blockers and 3 Jarvis to take care of the friendly blockers. St Albans is usually a frog fortress but the Essex and Herts Resistance combined to make this a blue territory, even if it was just for a short while. It'll be all green again within a week, but then we'll be back within a week...
Don't rest easy Mr.Frog.

Spontaneous Field Work

36,029 mu from spotting a field on the go. Great work!

Caroak 33 originally shared:
Sometimes the best outcomes are the impromptu chance opportunities that come along.... I was looking on Intel and noticed a field opportunity from Woolmer Green -Stevenage - Tonwell. A nice field about 9k Mu. Needed a bit of Green weeding as well so that was a bonus. I set off and happily smashed the Enl portals and destroyed the blocking links.
When I got to Stevenage I found the original portal I intended to use as a anchor.....and also some more grey portals that I had not seen on Intel. This gave me the opportunity (with a bit of driving and no frogs noticing) to layer the fields. Most is 3 layers and there is a sliver under this field that is 6 layers I think...it was already 3 layers. A total of 37,029 Mu saved from the Enlightened. Not bad huh....

Emerald Isles Turn Blue

We covered the action in Scotland and Wales last night, we have just mentioned the work of OCD in England, which only leaves one UK country left... And what a Beauty!

The Emerald Isle isn't looking so Emerald today! The hard work of our N.Irish Home Guard members has protected most of the country, and a bit of the Republic too!

An amazing sight, blue skies over a safe Ireland. Well done soldiers!

Norfolk Newbies Light The Way

As an island nation, coastal defences are incredibly important, which is why the hard work of Operation Coastal Defense is so appreciated.
Once again the Home Guard troops on the ground have done an incredible job of securing the East coast, and with a little international cooperation protected a navy route to The Hague. Very impressive work from Colin Wilson and his team of new fielders!

Well done, and thank you! Your hard work and sacrifices are not going unnoticed.

Operation Failed, Mission Accomplished

This is an unusual one, we don't usually comment on countermeasures... But the responses were so smooth they need recognition!
Well done to all Home Guard members and international allies involved in stopping the enemy operation at Ailsa Craig. 

Your rapid response saved millions of UK minds, and wasted frog efforts in reaching an isolated command post.

It may not be as headline grabbing, but the Quick Reaction Force's work is invaluable... Well done!
