Comic Sans Link Challenge

A heretofore unknown and self-proclaimed member of Nemesis, identifying themselves only as Comic Sans, has made contact with NIA Researchers with knowledge of “horizontal partitioning and interconnection” across worlds. In a brief and cryptic statement, they relayed:

Wry Alm0nds. Sk1nny Lam.

At the time of this post, NIA Researchers were unable to decipher the meaning of this enigmatic statement. They were also unable to confirm Comic Sans’ origin or intent. As such, NIA Researchers have not ruled out the possibility that Comic Sans may introduce a lasting change to the Scanner app’s functionality.

Erring on the side of caution, NIA Researchers need additional time to assess this Global Challenge. Starting Thursday, 31 March 1600 UTC to Thursday, 7 April 1600 UTC, a three-tier medal will be available to all Agents who aid in the investigation by creating Links. Please note that the dates of this event window have been pushed back from previously shared intel.

To earn the Comic Sans Challenge medal, 

  • Bronze Tier: Create 4 Links
  • Silver Tier: Create 41 Links
  • Gold Tier: Create 401 Links

A new “Comic Sans Links” event metric will be added to your Agent Profile for the duration of this Global Challenge to help you monitor the number of Links established.

Also expected during this time period:

  • Links shorter than 500m in length can be created under Fields (all other preconditions still apply)
  • 41-minute Drone cooldown

In addition to the earned medal, also available during the event period in the Ingress Store:

  • Limited-time Comic Sans medal (2,500 CMU)

The Sakura Collection medals (2,500 CMU per medal) will be available once again from Monday, 21 March 0000 UTC to Monday, 2 May 0000 UTC.

We hope you enjoy the varieties of medals, and we’re looking forward to more opportunities to add some fun to your Agent Profile. We appreciate your feedback and suggestions in the Ingress Community Forum.

As always, please remember to be aware of your surroundings. We encourage players to follow local health and safety guidelines when playing Ingress (such as wearing masks and maintaining at least six feet/two meters of distance from other people).
