Ingress should now be running normally. Thank you for your patience while we worked to resolve this unplanned server outage.

Will hexathlon sites have overall leaderboards?

Making the basic grade at the field test was fun, sure.

Getting the fail/succeed/elite feedback instantly and automatically at the close of play was perfect. Like, this was the way events should always have been given the god”s-eye-view of the Ingress platform. Being both the game and the referee should always have had have such benefits.

However, learning how you measured up on each sub-challenge and overall, against everyone else on the same site, is more in keeping with athletic or eventing *thlons. It would scratch some of the competitive itch some of us feel, given these won’t be anomalies.

I did a sheet for players at Ipswich, and it was interesting to see the specialists and the generalists and the mainly-out-for-the-socials stacking up. The scoring was rudimentary, not like modern sports *thlons, but self-normalising for the site and participants, and probably sufficient for our type of fun.
