It should have been an Onyx Guardian portal badge already but a Resistance Ingress player demolished that goal of mine. Three days is all I need to achieve my first ever Onyx Ingress badge but it was all gone. Another five months or one hundred fifty days of controlling a portal consecutively.

Five months of waiting again and looking for a perfect Guardian Portal. Guardian portals are really elusive and very hard to maintain in Ingress. Even with a very good tactical gameplay, once a Resistance is monitoring your gameplay, it is really anfractuous.

Ingress Achievements 2017 – Silver Engineer

Another late post about my Ingress badge achievements.

This is another late update about my Ingress gameplay. I received the Silver Engineer badge in Ingress last 30 August 2017, the day I turned thirty-eight.

I was not able to monitor my gameplay during the time I got this badge since I was not able to capture or make a screenshot of the pop-up every time a new badge level was achieved while playing Ingress.

Silver Engineer badge is attained as soon as the Ingress player was able to deploy 1,500 mods while upgrading hacked or captured portals. This is not an easy feat to achieve since the Ingress gamer can only deploy a maximum of two mods per portal gained. If there are no more slots, the Ingress player needs to find another portal with vacant mod slots.

A Very Disappointing Moment in Ingress

240 Days of portal hacking lost with wasted efforts.

This was written on 4 October 2017 at 23:56 PM, the day I received my graduation photos from Laguna.

I was shocked to see that my current hacking streak was back to ZERO. It was really grueling to see that it was reset to zero. This is the second time that it happened and it was a sad moment. I thought it was just a glitched and I even hacked three portals near our place just to see if there was a glitch, but, to no avail. It was really reset to ZERO.

All the efforts wasted in just a blink of an eye and in a split second. I do not know what happened. I do not want to think about it any more. I immediately researched if other Ingress players had an experience similar to this issue and it is really a happening, a moment of wasted time and efforts in hacking. In my case, I braved the storms and even when I was sick with influenza which was the worst flu I had experience, I still managed to hack. I did my best to hack since the portals are only near us which is almost 330 metres far from our abode.

I will have to do it again for the third time and hopefully the last time of continuous portal hacking. This Sojourner Ingress badge is really the hardest to achieve aside from the Guardian Portal Ingress badge. It’s a continuous effort of portal hacking for 360 days to achieve the Onyx Sojourner Ingress badge while the Onyx Guardian Portal Ingress badge is achievable after 150 days of maintaining a portal with your own deployed resonators.

Ingress Achievements 2017 – Platinum Guardian

My second platinum badge in Ingress, the hard-earned Guardian Platinum badge.

This is my late update about my Ingress gameplay. This is my second platinum badge in Ingress which is really tough to achieve since a player must capture a portal by deploying a resonator of preferred strength and then maintain its stronghold for a number of days. In this case, ninety days for the fourth level which is the Platinum badge.

It was good enough that I was able to maintain it for ninety days since it is really hard to find a portal that will withstand constant farming by being hacked every now and then. An Ingress player must find a good portal strategically located which will be seldom or most probably, not visited by any common player.

I was fortunate to find portals inside the resting grounds of mortals and was able to maintain it every day by constantly recharging which also adds to the total number of Action Points or AP. Now, since the day I got my Platinum Guardian badge, I only need to maintain its stronghold for sixty more days or two months to receive my first ever Onyx badge in Ingress. I already have thirty days left as of this writing and hopefully, a rival player will not detect it as my GP or Guardian Portal.
