Stoked up!

Welcome to the first of, hopefully, many Stoke Blankets!

A crack team of agents came together to throw 23 layers over Stoke, Newcastle-under-Lyme and the surrounding areas. The team threw a total of over 22m mu from 8 throws of the field-set and, in spite the last minute arrival of the local opposition, the fields all made checkpoint. In fact, several checkpoints!

Agents 40079, BigBadMoo, KernowBoy, Laughingwater, mcwebtree, Tomarse, and VanyelAshkevron cleared, farmed keys, threw fields, provided intel and did a bit of Resistance distraction along the way. KernowBoy gained platinum illuminator with some excellent fielding.

And a Brucie bonus of helping Enlightened to a first win in a while of the septicycle for NR02-JULIET-13!

Fantastic work agents!


Super Superposition in NR02-JULIET-12

Congratulations to the Enlightened in NR02-JULIET-12 on a fantastic effort for the Superposition Connected Cell challenge, winning 9 out of the 10 possible points for the Enlightened and extending their winning streak into 182 consecutive septicycles!

The prior septicycle closed with both teams posting historically low scores to set the best baseline to work from.  The scoring septicyle opened with a lot of activity from both factions through the first few checkpoints.  Many local layered fields were thrown up and many were smashed in a frenzy of activity.

Enlightened then pulled ahead convincingly with a huge multi-layered field over Nottingham.  The size of the field also skewed the scanner scoring scale for the rest of the septicycle.  The team never really looked back after that, winning every checkpoint, although there were some nervy moments.  

There was still plenty of nip and tuck in the remainder of the septicycle with both sides sniping down large multi-layered fields just moments before checkpoints.  Sheffield was covered twice.  Wetherby, Worksop, Hull, Doncaster, Grimbsy, Cleethorpes, Chesterfield, Mansfield and Lincoln were also covered, some locations repeatedly.  A lone agent diligently worked night after night to frustrate most of the Resistance fielding in Derby.  All in all, over 128m MU hit a checkpoint during the septicycle, but even more than that was put up in an effort to ensure as big a winning margin as possible.

Many miles were covered (have you seen the price of fuel?).  People sneaked out of houses before families were awake and skulked back in after they were asleep.  Some agents even managed to help with the Connected Cell while also participating in the Munich anomaly.  Between the fielding, there was also time for a social to play (and score of course!) some rare battle beacons for the Superposition badge.

The team had a blast.  You could too!

The final weekend of Superposition runs from 11:00 UTC on Friday, 26th August 2022 to 11:00 UTC on Monday 29th August.  Help us win by deploying and winning rare battle beacons in that window.  

Sad you missed out on Munich?  Or did you attend and want some more?  The next shard/rare battle beacon sites in Europe are on Sunday 28th August in Seville and Warsaw.  It’s a great opportunity to visit some more fabulous European cities with friends!

The nearest connected cell is in the Netherlands (NR02-HOTEL-02) running to Wednesday, 31st August.  As well as going to the Netherlands, perhaps you can help on the east coast of England.  Reach out to your local communities to see what you can do!



Agents throwing fields, clearing, watching the map, farming for kit and keys, staying sober for a week in case they were needed (!), eating cake and cheering others on… 


Bristol wins again!

The Enlightened of Bristol welcomed some hardy travellers today, and after a long winter’s afternoon of happy battling, the Enlightened comprehensively won the Kureze event in Bristol 22,600 to 7,170!

It was great to play together again, through mishaps of flat tyres, sore backs, and dying batteries. Those hills are every bit as steep as they were at the last anomaly!

In the picture above you can see some of the team who made it back to the pub to warm up, get some refreshments, and more importantly, celebrate!

Wish you’d been there? Let’s see what the next two rounds of Kureze brings. Maybe you can be!

Sea to Shining Sea

Stretching from Beaumaris on the Irish Sea to Scarborough on the North Sea to Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, the gorgeous set of green fields graced the skies on Saturday morning. It was paired with a field on the east coast which was a fantastic effort in its own right. Together, almost 215m MU was captured with around 140m MU standing at the 9am checkpoint.

Fantastic work agents! EnlightenedFTW!

Blooming marvellous!

The garden of England is showing its true colours this afternoon with this extravagant set of 25 luscious green layers. Agents Impucl, Jimbobwai, SahanaTrolls, Sonny58, SunnyJR, TerryTrolls and TheSM1L3R amassed over 6m MU in the process.

Fabulous teamwork agents!


Neil Sedaka was right!

“… Walking Brighton… The Sun is high and so am I, I feel enlightened…”

OK, so he might have been talking about the area near Coney Island in the US, but with 30 layers over Brighton, agents badgerpaw, ChaosToOrder, CoffeePixie Dogfingers, Fdgbman, GraphicDivine, greekempire, and nognod must have been feeling really Enlightened earlier today!

Fabulous work agents!


Lincoln Green

Lincoln is looking a gorgeous shade of green this evening, courtesy of agents Baggieboy, incubus, K14TP, Luraketu, m8utt, roguemale, and UKZeroSniper. Flexing their fielding muscles, they created 32 layers through Newark-on-Trent and netted over 5m MU in the process.

Fantastic work agents!


It takes a village…

… well, maybe not a whole village, but certainly a community, to come together to help each other get those precious onyx illuminator badges (and rescue a cow).

danwilliams01, LessThanJess and thundercracker1 helped emisarb, KaptainSpikey, KaraSea, OneTruePotato, TheManeEvent and Wicketeers to throw 19 sets of fields over Cambridge.

Fabulous work agents!


Wet the baby’s head

Agents from Essex and London set out on Wednesday night to reclaim H12 to mark the birth of a fellow agent’s first born son and to ensure they were suitably Enlightened from the earliest of ages.

The team initially threw 38 fields over Southend to hit checkpoint, netting roughly 1m MU for the Enlightened, and then added a further 24 larger fields and 2m MU covering the SE of Essex.

Fantastic work from agents chasd, IainG, Plubly and TerryTrolls!



Agent mcwebtree espied an opportunity and threw this handy set of five layers over both Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme. What a lovely set of fields for a weekday. And such a great name for a place to field green!
