The Resistance in Cork make a come back

What happens when you severely damage a single Ingress portal?

From the logs it appears that 18 links were taken down when I destroyed all but one of the resonators in The Cork Vision Centre Ingress portal this afternoon.

Cork Vision Centre Resonator

So close!

Unfortunately the building was closed so I had to stand outside the gates and the single remaining L4 resonator was at the far side of the portal, away from me. I ran out of time to collect more XMP bursters to finish the job. Still, I think I got about 9,000 AP from that one single portal so I am very happy.

Walk around Cork

I also walked almost 12km in two and a half hours as I tried to scavenge supplies – XMP and XM to aid in my task. Even a month ago I couldn’t have imagined walking that distance. It’s not that far really but I had neglected my exercise. Making walking a part of a game certainly helped my motivation!

I did capture a portal today, the Flower Pot Man on Carey’s Lane. The actual statue that portal is based on appears to be gone now but I remember seeing it years ago. I broke through to Level 4 doing that!

It’s nice to see that gap in green in the Ingress map of Cork now. It’ll give the Enlightenment something to do over the coming week. They were probably getting bored recharging those portals all the time..

    1. Hehe. Well, the Enlightenment were active again this morning and took back one of my portals. I get an email every time a “resonator” is destroyed, (there are 8 of them) so I pulled up the portal key for the Flower Pot Man and recharged the remaining resonators.

      I think he gave up shortly afterwards and another Resistance agent has deployed a resonator there. Hopefully he’ll replace the second one and recharge the rest! :)

      It’s a great game, there’s even a Reddit on it at http://www.reddit.com/r/ingress


  1. Viva La Resistance…

    How your battery lasts with gps, data and all those apps in the notification bar Ill never know. Think mine lasted an hour and a half today. Battery showing signs of old age. Must get a stand alone charger to have a few spares to pop in on the hacking laps.

    Viva La Resistance! O/


    1. I have some help! My phone will probably last the same length of time as yours but I bought a portable battery charger a few months ago. There are quite a few on amazon.co.uk and they keep my phone going a lot longer!

      When I’m out I usually have Cardiotrainer tracking my path and speed, Podkicker playing a podcast and now Ingress hacking portals. There’s also Swypepad and Llama profiles running there if you’re interested. I should probably shut those last two down when I’m out though.
