Overall Event Badge Requirements

For any agent participating in this event to receive credit for the FS badge, the following overall requirements must be met:

1. The event must generate a total combined recharging score of 50,000 XM. This is the total of all agents that submit before and after stats (see below). That’s a doable goal, but you might want to stop recharging your portals now, since the decay rate is so small right now.

2. A passcode puzzle provided by Fev Games to the FS POCs must be decoded by participating agents. We won’t get full details until Saturday. We will be working on it in the TG chat and on Zoom. We have been told this will involve local knowledge of the area, using the Base Portal as a starting point. What kind of knowledge, how big an area, etc., we aren’t being told. Also, once the Prescott code has been solved and submitted, we can work with other cities on decoding global master codes. We will use both the TG chat and the Zoom chat to work on the decoding, with most of the work being done in the TG chat.

3. A picture showing a minimum of 10 participating agents must be posted in social media by the POCs. This can be a collage of selfies, a screen shot of a Zoom session, etc. You should hold or display something Ingress related. Crystalwizard designed and posted in the chat a couple of masks (one for each faction) that you can print out and use. Or create your own idea. The link above to the Fev Games announcement shows Fev Games staffers with their ideas.

TL;DR for overall event requirements– No badge for anyone without these three items being complete: 50,000 total XM recharged, decoding our event’s passcode, the POCs posting a photo with at least 10 agents in it.

 

Individual Agent Badge Requirements

In addition, each individual participating agent must do the following:

1. Submit your before and after stats to the Auto Score Sheet. Your stats cannot be entered manually by either you or the POCs. We will supply a link to the form you should use in the chat on Saturday (see above). We will accept your before stats anytime between 10:00 am and 10:15 am. Your after stats may be submitted anytime before 12:05 pm. Any submissions outside those time limits WILL NOT be accepted and you WILL NOT receive a badge.

The steps to enter your starting stats are as follows:
a. Go to your agent profile in your scanner.
b. Verify you are looking at your all time stats and tap the copy button (right-hand side near the top, a little box with an up arrow coming out of it), then Copy at the top of the next screen.
c. Using the form link provided Saturday morning, paste your stats in the Start Stats Export field, then tap the Submit button (you will need to scroll down to find the button after you have pasted your data). I know all your data was pasted, but no one can see any of your data except: your agent name, your faction, your agent level, your lifetime AP, and the XM recharged amount.

The steps to enter your ending stats are as follows:
a. Go to your agent profile in your scanner.
b. Verify you are looking at your all time stats and tap the copy button (right-hand side near the top, a little box with an up arrow coming out of it), then Copy at the top of the next screen.
c. Using the form link provided Saturday morning, paste your stats in the End Stats Export field, then tap the Submit button (you will need to scroll down to find the button after you have pasted your data). I know all your data was pasted, but no one can see any of your data except: your agent name, your faction, your agent level, your lifetime AP, and the XM recharged amount.

2. Recharge portals (any portals, anywhere). No specific XM amount is required, but your before and after stats MUST show a change (XM Recharged, under Builder).

3. We hope you will also participate in one or more of the following activities within the event timeframe (10:00 am – noon): the online video chat, assisting with the passcode decoding, or the special activity that will be announced at the beginning of the event.

4. Verify your Agent Name and Score is listed on the event page under the Score Sheet Data section (Event page link: https://fevgames.net/ifs/event/?e=16761 .) Being listed under RSVP DOES NOT count. It is your responsibility to verify that your name appears, not Fev Games and not the POCs. If your name is not there, you WILL NOT receive a badge. The score shown is the difference between your before and after stats, the actual stats will not be shown. Anyone with the registration link can see your agent name and score. If you prefer to not have this visible, don’t submit your stats, but you WILL NOT receive a badge.

TL;DR for individual agent requirements – No badge for you if you do not: submit your starting stats, at a minimum recharge a single resonator on one portal, submit your ending stats, and check that your agent name and score appear on the event page (see above for link).
