#Didact Field Challenge: Feb 14-24, 2020



  • I have 5 each of ADA and Jarvis and 7 SBULA, I haven;'t stocked them since I use them on a regular basis. So that's not an option.

    "waste not, want not" 😁😁

  • Another event I won't be participating in because of the perma-field over my home area.

  • Can you work with your local faction to take it down and toss some blocker links. At the minimum, you net some decent AP for the takedown. While you're taking it down, have someone block it

  • We've tried. There are 4 agents that put the fields back up almost as fast as we take them down.

  • @Grogyan While I have plenty of each, I'm not planning on using ANY for this event. Note who you are responding to on the forums when replying. Looks like you are actually replying to @GorillaSapiens post and not mine. I never stated that I was going to use flip cards and SBUL's. If anything, I will donate those to my team mates who will be using a field generator.

    As I've mentioned before, I like to go with the whole micro field thing. Something that would be very easy in your local area. I see tons of portals showing as grey in Auckland. Your zoo has a good 70+ that are grey too.

  • Most of those of us who want hardcore levels, have already recursed multiple times (I'm on my 4th currently), and likely already have Onyx Badges for both Mind Controller & Connector (I know I do). Not to mention that the event badges should be set as Bronze (ie not for leveling) not that it really makes any difference. Enough stupid easy badges to allow for leveling these days.

    @EvilSuperHeros Primarily you, but both.

    When you are looking at my city, Ignore the CBD, I play in the burbs, and you're looking at several hours of driving around for not many fields.

    Trust me, I did this for EXO-5, out every night, except 3, for 3- 4 hours, and barely made 500 fields.

    The 3 nights I did not play, was because of getting a cold, due to being out so late on the previous evenings.

    Thank you Brian for such a detailed post and image of the tiers! This event looks to be a lot of fun

  • Nothing unclear in this post, but the email was confusing.

    For the duration of this special event, the following modifiers to resonator deployment will be in effect:

    • 2x drop rate of ADA Refactor / JARVIS Virus (from 1:1000 to 1:500)
    • 2x AP for resonator destroyed
    • 2x AP for link destroyed
    • 2x AP for field destroyed

    What do any of the modifiers have to do with resonator deployment?

  • HydraulinskiHydraulinski ✭✭✭✭✭

    If you find 24 portal in line (or 2 anchors really far from each other) you can hit the 300 mark easily with you current inventory. But remember that the drop rate will increase.

    Farm the 24+ keys of each anchor and do the layers (incluind jets), them go back to one anchor and flip it, destroy it and put 2 sbul and trow again the 24 links. Go to the other anchor and do the same. You just made about 150 fields.

    Wait one hour and repeat. And if you want to save some sbul, instead of destroying the portal, flip it and wait until you be able to flip it back to your faction. That wai you waste more flipcards, but saves sbul. You can do it even faster if use other portals nearby the anchors.

    Thats exactly what i'm gonna do.

  • I designed this infographic fot the new Didact Challenge, if you want to share it please do so 😊

    Super hyped for this challenge; Just finished doing all the prep work for my planned fields. My goal will be the 2000 exo5 fields in the 10 day window. Good luck to everyone!

  • CornwuffCornwuff ✭✭✭

    I don't think I've done 1000 fields in a year, much less 10 days. My hat is off to you who can.

  • There was an error in it; in the email, it said "2x AP for resonator deployed" while all other actions require something to be destroyed. Deployed, destroyed, easy to type in the wrong word... I'm glad the post clarified that.

  • Looking forward to this! The medal portrait reminds me of Quickman from Mega Man 2

  • Just completed the challange. Some keyfarming, Prime seems to be a disco while scrolling trough the link portals, using 2SBUL each jarvis. Flipped like 19 times.

  • #didact my little contribution

  • Got this one out the way with a good set up and a lot of key farming

  • Anyone else having trouble sending links or closing control fields, as well as keys with an "error" message?

  • Noting that the drop rate for both viruses is doubled. Does that mean agents won’t be penalised for taking down blockers and fields that obscure everything? In small, confined or rural areas this challenge is going to be close to impossible otherwise. In cities, it’s ideal, but not everyone lives in a city.

    Got it with proper planning and keyfarming ✌️

  • This event has an effect on the rate at which the fields are deleted and reconfigured, the rate at which new fields are created. Isn't it legitimate to get help from another team of agents to delete the field?

    I believe the 2xp for destroy is especially to help it happen without crossplay.

    But since I'm trying to use sbul, the rival team won't help me at all, they will actually damage my plans, seeking for easy ap.

  • @NianticBrian will you provide a graph or score sheet with updated numbers on how many fields were created? Maybe list Enl and Res separately, so that we have a challenge versus each other 😃😉

  • Time to sleep ✌✌

  • Does anyone have the link to the global stats? How far away are we from globally finishing the challenge?

  • @NianticOfficial Where is global progress?

  • edited February 16

    SITREPs with global challenge progress will be shared in the following forum thread. To quickly recap:

    #Didact SITREP: Field creation (and destruction) has surged in the first 48 hours of the Didact global challenge, with agents taking advantage of this first weekend to establish an aggressive start.
