This might be a long post, I don’t know. If you got bored halfway, you may leave and come back later.
Just if you didn’t know….
I started playing Ingress, around the time when Pokémon launched. Was quite reluctant to play at first but who knows? I’m addicted to it more than Pokémon. It is one game that I can play with people everywhere, around the world, using our mobile phones, travelling by foot/vehicle, and is reality.
I always wanted to play a game like this. Computer/console games aren’t that cheap and you aren’t playing it out of your comfort zone. Ingress is different.

Let’s cut things short…
Event Badges earned through event participation from time to time. And I only have these 2 badges since joined:
I got this badge this year’s Birthday Anniversary, when I upgraded to Level 13: GOLD Badge. I am not that AP grinder but this event was during the Double AP period so it was kind of easy to up level and I have all the required badges. Assume if I start the game earlier, I would have the other badges but it’s okay. If I continue the journey, I will get next year’s badge.
This was my first GOLD event badge. Hacking portals is a daily task for most of us. But getting unique ones is not really an easy task because I have already hacked most of the portals around here. Unless I go somewhere else. It was fun because I went to some new places and saw different things. That experience is explainable.
Standard Badges earned when the time comes. There are some badges that I want to get first but I won’t force myself to achieve these badges in a short time because it’s a game that I think best is to enjoy the journey.
Currently a GOLD badge, after completing Princess Saga that has 96 missions at 14 locations.
I still don’t know why did I do such long story. I’m not really a mission person because I don’t really like walking. Before that, I did 6 individual missions. As for now, I am still thinking to do anymore missions or not, because I don’t want my Mission Day Kuala Lumpur (14 January 2017) mosaics to look weird later.
I am no master of this because played so long, only now got the GOLD badge. It is not easy for me to remember all the glyph because have to really memorize them and I can’t really get all correctly, especially the new glyph. It took me quite some time to actually remember the old ones. Whenever a person is glyph hacking, never disturb him/her because might end up wrong glyph. It is kind of addictive sometimes.
This is my second ONYX badge. As long as i have enough of Power Cubes, I can recharge all the portals I want; those that I have keys. This is one of the easy to level badge.
My SILVER badge. My most wanted to achieve destroyer badge; not as easy as I thought. As long as I have enough weapons, I will blast my way. That’s the easiest thing I can do when playing inside the car.
I am still wondering if I still have any portals that I have never capture before around here. This GOLD badge and I can see the counter hardly increase.
I am still the SILVER badge because I rarely put mods in portal. Actually I have more resonators than mods.
This GOLD badge shall stay for another 116 days at least because yesterday was my 3rd reset; in exchange for all the sleep that I want for holiday/weekend. And it always happen on a Sunday.
My first ONYX badge from doing Ops. To get this badge, is best if you do big and multiple layers field. I got this with the help of my teams.
I hack portals most of the time and still SILVER badge. Maybe I didn’t hack enough to level up. But I am no hurry for this badge.
My another no hurry badge, that’s why is still SILVER badge.
I like to create fields on the spot; not planned ones. I don’t care how much Mind Units I get.
SILVER badge too. It is not easy for me to shoot links from portals when I am travelling inside the car; if cannot deploy, cannot capture portal.
GOLD badge for this; in relation to Via Lux Odyssey (Rumors said get 2000 UPV to get the badge) period. So went hacking everywhere.
As I said earlier, I don’t really like walking so I am still holding the GOLD badge.
This shall stay as GOLD badge for a long time. The longest held Guardian Portal died at 89 days on 15 December 2016. This is the most hard to achieve badge! At least for me.
To unlock this badge, need to recruit at least 2 new agents. And help them up Level 3, at least.
To unlock this badge, will have to wait till next year.
Till next time…
