Question(s) regarding IFS at home

So i'm taking part in IFS, but the group i'm taking part in IFS through, is hometown-ed or officially named is from other city/state. So now the question is when i recharge portals, do i have to recharge portals of that city(under which the IFS is registered/name?) or any portal from any city is fine? Can someone please clarify this?

    Recharges somes portals ,that's all , we don't care where they are you just have more recharge on you profile stats between first measure and second measure :)

  • A step by step video for those of us who have never run a FS would be more helpful and what if you have no willing opposition players nominate as a leader ?

  • I have a legit question for Virtual First Saturdays

    In my small city we never have events (nowhere near enough local agents)

    But I have 3 major cities within an easy 20+ minute drive (which is how I did events like field tests in past)

    When looking at First Saturday even, the best (for me) start time is in a non local city (approx 4 hour drive)

    Can we register for a different city since it is virtual or no? I have physically been in the further city (prob once a year avg) and hacked portals there previously

    And they have way more agents registered for event already (like 100 there vs 20 locally)

  • That was kinda my question and the answer seems to be a yes. Take part in any FS, as long as the group leader and others are willing to let you in.

    Like other folks have shared, you can join any Virtual FS site from home and recharge Portals you have Keys for. I’m planning to join a few (you only get one medal increment, but I think it’ll be nice to meet Agents face to face to face over video).

    We also just clarified this at the end of this forum post here:

  • Thank you for the clarification, much appreciated.

  • Why would Niantic give out a code to First Saturday @ Home which is fully redeemed in less than 24 hours? Worse, why release the code to everyone before the participants had a chance to redeem the code? What were they thinking???

    Where did NIANTIC release it??

    It was in player managed passcode servers within minutes of it being solved considering contents the master codes lasted a considerable time..

    Missed you unfortunately wasn't any of the 6 ifs I managed to attend unfortunately :(

  • not the place guys. Don't hijack. This thread is done.

    Does anyone know when they typically release the IFS badge? Just wondering.

  • Soon™

    Typically 10-14 days after IFS but we extended the score submission window to allow people to fix errors in theirs so this badge may be slightly delayed.
