It’s time to move… to the wonderful seaside city of Brighton!
Brighton is famous for the Royal Pavilion, the Palace pier, its vibrant arts scene, quirky shopping areas, the UK’s first public naturist beach and, of course, as the “unofficial gay capital of the UK”. You can see why it’s been called the UK’s hippest city.
Join us on Saturday 20th May for the Brighton Echo anomaly. Book your travel early to get the best deals!
_Machina_ (and the Resistance) proved no match for an intrepid group of agents from Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness who were determined to create this gorgeous set of fields in the middle of the day.
The main layers were 1.4m MU with supporting layers in Peterhead of 140k. In total, agents threw 15.9m MU of fields with agents douglasfirtree and brelmarcus gained their platinum and onyx illuminator badges respectively.
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…
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.
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!
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.
