Not sure I really fancy waving my phone about trying to see what's going on but once hololense or magic leap release 2nd or 3rd generation wearables, this is the kind of shit I'll be playing. Every time I think about that I have a spontaneous nerd-gasm  :oops:

You had me at "Self Transforming Machine Elves"  :lulz:

Defo a group game. We've got a pretty good setup here in forth valley. Three 8's on my manor, keeping it blue, 5 guys across the river in alloa and a couple in stirling. The local toads are alright as well but only one of them is worth a fuck on comms and he's been away on holiday for the last fortnight. Further afield we've got good connections in Glasgow and Edinburgh and one of our team makes regular visits to perth and inverness so we're hooked into uk ops and some of us (not me - I need to prove myself first and do trial by burning knives or some shit) have connections with global ops.

Game is a perfect fit for me. I'm a video game geek but I like being outdoors and now they've turned outdoors into the map for a video game. I'm already having wet dreams about where this is headed once the Visor display platform matures a bit.

You seen Clandestine Anomaly?

    User: What's that white fluffy thing in the sky?

    Deep Dream: Doggie!

    User: Close enough. What's that big bright circle?

    Deep Dream: Doggie!

    User: Fine, whatever. What about this green stuff on the ground?

    Deep Dream: Doggie!

I remember being part of this safari, somewhere else, about half a dozen years ago or something

I'm one gold short of L13 but I'll never grind that much AP. Fielding game is all about the skull-count. Only 1250AP for a million plus MU, I'll take no.1 slot on the cell leaderboard every time.

I concentrate on getting bang for my buck with fields so my actual Mind Controller is still silver. Planning on getting black Illuminator before Mind Controller goes gold.

The other bit I really dig is Translator. Glyph game is a wicked way to make sure you always have plenty kit when your daily farm is maybe 15-20 P7's. Because I came to the game late and the translator was already a thing, I'm still on track to earn black in that while my hacker is still bronze. So that's another goal I'm working on.

as if more proof was needed  :lulz:

The classic example being Henry Ford, who paid his line workers something like double the going rate. Why? So they could afford to buy a car.

I reckon I'll get L11 eventually but I doubt I'll be playing long enough to do 12, despite having enough badges. Oculus comes out next year. Planning on dropping off the face of the earth around then

I'm a toad, my boyfriend's a Smurf, and we catch no end of hell from our crossfaction group for our interspecies relationship.

I'll bet! Not sure I'd ever be able to 100% trust a smurf who was sleeping with the enemy. Ops game makes you paranoid. "Is this hangout secure?" :lulz:

No shit. Best part was we shot for 02:00CP and thot maybe, if we're doing well, it'll make 07:00. Turns out Pahous. Head of the stirling amphibian scum. Had been on the lash saturday night with his cronies, after the FS event he and CreakyOstritch from our mob had organised in stirling. First one in scotland. Around 50 agents flying around the town, wintrading like mofo's and levelling up noobs. He woke up, so find himself swimming in 14 layers of smurfcum and belted out to b'burn on the bus, only to arrive at the scene of the crime 3 minutes past noon. 3CP at 200 kiloskulls a pop!

Didny hear much from him on comms after that.  :lulz:

Yeehaw, you guys still playing? I joined RES middle of March. Fuck y'all hippy toad bastards, I'll never surrender! Besides, I was raised orthodox sectarian. Consciously, I'm over it but my fkin limbic system would straight up veto any attempt to choose green over blue, under any circumstances. Evar!

Mrs P3nT like smashing things up and making tons of AP, I like Chasing MU. Middle of nowhere, middle of the night, waiting for the green light to chuck the baseline. We're the perfect mom and pops team. I've topped the leaderboard twice in my cell, once in juliet-05, to the west and I've been top 10 RES in juliet-03, over Edinburgh and Dundee.

Some of my ops

13 layers from falkirk baseline, through bannockburn up to the middle of Stirling town center.


Variation on a theme, with batwings


Paper Dart - Glencoe to Drymen (that's Loch Lomond in the bottom left)


Arran an Kintyre - P3nTw1Fe and I on holiday


Persepolis Anomaly - Got a badge for planning and running a team of 10 for this blocking op coast to coast from St Andrews to Oban. UK RES had intel the green scumbags were planning a BAF over Liverpool


Last weekend earned platinum illuminator badge for my part in a 7 man op, set up by the Alloa posse. 14 layers From Aberfeldy to Tyndrum, down to bannockburn. The green fields, covered in blue, at the bottom are like an arrow, pointing at the city of stirling and all it's inhabitants.


Just under 3 million mu left to field for Onyx badge. Gonny have to go bigger!

Wasn't there an Ingress thread around here somewhere? Bastard game has eaten my life  :argh!:

P3nt: Appears to have flounced without the decency of a good hissy fit on the way out.


Sorry to disappoint. Will make more of an effort next time :lulz:

Ahem.

Given that it wasn't me that derailed a perfectly good AI/robotics thread with some holier than thou half arsed bullshit about biology, then yeah, "ahem"  :roll:
