Coming soon: Hack the World Weekend event
Agents successfully generated enough Kinetic energy during the Optima Kinetic Challenge to repel NEMESIS associate Optima's advances. But what did Optima seek to accomplish, and were they operating alone? Agents, we need your help to research and report for potential threats that may still be lurking in the Portal Network. To do this, we are asking that all Agents hack as many unique Portals as possible (Drone hacks included) between Friday, April 9th 16:00 UTC to Monday, April 12th 16:00 UTC.
We will be measuring Unique Portal Hacks (UPH) during this three day window. By Monday, April 12th 16:00 UTC, Agents must meet a global challenge threshold of 3,500,000 unique hacks combined (the sum of all Agent individual UPH) in order for us to better understand what is happening.
- If a Portal was hacked the day before the event started, and then hacked during the event, it would still count as a UPH for this challenge
- Progress of the unique hack counts will be updated once per day on the News Feed
- There will be a new event metric added to your Agent Profile for the duration of the Global Challenge to help you monitor the number of unique Portals you have hacked
The following bonuses will be enabled during the event:
- Cool-down time of Drone Mark l will be reduced from 60 minutes to 10 minutes
- 2X AP for Glyph Hacking (Drone included)
- Hacking friendly Portals will also earn 100AP
If the global challenge threshold is achieved successfully, there will also be a limited time reward from Friday, April 23rd 16:00 UTC to Friday, April 30th 16:00 UTC that will enable:
- Damage of Level 4 through 6 XMP Bursters increased by 1 level
- 2X AP for Link and Field destroy, (187 → 374AP for Links; 750 → 1500AP for Fields)
- Portal recharge earns 100AP
As always, please remember to be aware of your surroundings. We encourage players to follow local health and safety guidelines when playing Ingress (such as wearing masks and maintaining at least six feet/two meters of distance from other people).
