XFAC - Interested in fellow agents interested in research and analysis
I'm looking for fellow minded players who are interested in general research of the game.
There was a thriving group early in this game on G+ - but I found this group only 2 weeks before G+ shut down. And there must have been a great and thriving community shortly after launch of Ingress many years ago.
In my view there is still a lot that is not well understood - that can be revisited. A group helps to discuss ideas, improve on them, share data sets.
About myself: I have been active in the PoGo community as a scientist in the Silphroad Research Group with multiple publications like the 1:2:4:8 rarity index for eggs, an accurate formula for morale decay, the height/weight formula and multiple more.
I have worked in research/data-mining for nearly 20 years - mainly pharmaceutical research. I used statistics for games as long as I can remember. To me - it adds to my enjoyment of the game and I have met a lot of different people via this work.
For more info - post back or visit some of my work on DrThod.com where I currently publish some of that work. There is a lot more I'm working on.
Right now I'm looking into the actual speed bonus you get from GlyphHack. I'm hacking level 1 portals (neutral, other faction, own faction) either quickly (90%+ speed bonus) or slowly (<20% speed bonus) to better understand what gets increased by the bonus - and by how much (at least have a ball park figure). And just lets say without spoilers - the data looks 'interesting'.
