Couchomaly, an unofficial Ingress event series
Hello dear community. We all miss the live events where we got together, met players and had a lot of fun. In the last months some agents from both factions have created an event concept that can't replace a real anomaly, but in the broadest sense creates a global, competitive challenge for both factions with changing tasks. It is mainly based on uploading scanner stats and additional competitions that can be completed outside of Ingress.
The concept is called Couchomaly.
Originally planned as a single event for people in lockdown, it evolved into an event series with story and global competition. We also try to integrate the wishes and ideas of the players through regular surveys, the result is the current event.
Currently, a new episode is starting, it begins on June 14 00:00 AM UTC±0. The event is divided into pre (72h) and main event(48h). In the Pre event you can earn bonuses for the main event. In the main event, points can be earned in various contests that require either playing with the scanner or creative tasks such as photo or decoding competitions.
Currently not everything is fully developed, many things are being tested. We are working with uploads via Google forms to collect the data. A website is also there and every now and then we give away swag to the participants.
Maybe someone of you is interested in this. Participation is possible from everywhere with or without leaving your Couch ;)
