The State of NC State #2 (4/12-4/20)

state-of-stateIt’s that time of week again! And you thought I wasn’t serious when I said weekly (even if a bit late)!

  • Frozenyogurt – Level 5 on 4/15 – Enjoy the new bursters, and thanks for knocking down that blue field!

Big Event Special!

On the 14th there was an XM anomaly that required Bell Tower and Zipcar to be linked together to fully harness the energy (or something, I forgot the actual story behind it). Basically it was a game of capture the flag, where the two portals had to be linked together in order to win. Players from around the triangle gathered to participate in this event.

The game start was delayed by 30 minutes to accommodate some organization issues. Once the game started, it didn’t take long for a small group of level 7 and 8 players on bikes to reach the Bell Tower. After a few bursters were fired and resonators deployed, mezmer beat me (belisario93) to making the game winning link before the game was even 3 minutes in (much to the smurfs’ dismay).

Because of how quickly this objective was reached, the organizers of the event ruled that the secondary objective be played, where the faction with the most portals at game end wins. The surprising 2:1 advantage that the enlightened had for the day became very handy and ultimately it was the frogs that came on top!

We hope to have another event like this one day, with better organization and a better resistance from the resistance!
