LvL 1 to LvL 8 in 10 seconds
Calls himself as Xfac or Red Faction Agent. Everytime he hits lvl 16 he will recurse and change faction. Why you ask? because he can
What is Operation Homefields?
The plan was simple. Try to hit lvl 8 faster than anyone before. Most of the Agents who try to beat the fastest time to lvl 8 use the build and flip technique. Operation Homefields reverses this idea:
Destroy as many fields as possible with 1 portal.
The plan was to place 1.500 fields on 1 portal. Now the search started for all those portals to link.
In the middle of the planning phase Niantic announced the Didact Field Challenge but most important 2x AP for destroying fields and links. This Challenge makes the whole Operation way easier than before.
Instead of 1.500 fields only ~750 fields where needed to hit lvl 8.
Agent RoLLeOwnZ is at 35.000.000 AP
2 Goals must be reached before starting the Operation:
- Farm Keys of the anchor(about 400)
- hit at least 37.000.000 AP (normaly an easy goal but only with linking, basically no active players in my region)
The next week was full of key farming and a trip to vienna to make 2.000.000 AP without blocking my own playfield)
Goals reached: enough AP and enough keys. Now its time for flipping the portal and destroy it to place lvl 1 resonators. I also gave Agent Cyberwald 60 keys for emergency purposes.
9:00 am: 1 hour bus and traintrip to the island "Lindau"
10:00 am - 13:30 am: link and field the portals to the anchor.
Links/fields to Anchor: 144 / 279
Waiting for the night. This gets often cleared in the evening.
Luckily the field still is up.
8:00 am: bustrip to Dornbirn
8:30 am - 11:00 am: link and field the portals to the anchor
links/fields to anchor: 228 / 439
11:30 am: train to Bregenz
11:45 am - 14:30 pm: link and field the portals to the anchor
links/fields to anchor: 350 / 673
14:30 pm: nearly done and already hit the didact challenge goal:
Cyberwald called me and asked if he can make 100 fields for the bronze badge and i agreed.
There was only one problem. Still 300.000 AP are missing to hit lvl 16 and start recurse timer.
14:45 pm: train to Hohenems
15:10 pm - 16:14 pm: leveling to lvl 16 and start recurse timer
16:30 pm: train and bus home.
18:00pm - 20:00 pm: Cyberwald starts linking and fielding
links/fields to anchor: 395 / 755
20:05 pm: waiting at the portal like a kid on christmas.
20:15 pm: now its finally time to recurse.
Change faction and start bursting the portal down.

Thanks for reading.
english is not my first language so please keep the spelling mistakes for yourself.
@blazethesinner for clearing dornbirn
@Cyberwald for linking the last fields
LoL. Congrats to something 'new'.
Now let's see who will make this faster. With a well prepared portal with only 3 resos and low energy, should be possible to do it 'much' faster, lmao.
Congratulations! This record is going to be hard to brake. Maybe only in November.
Did you not get the field kits for levels 2-7?
i got every field kit, you see that in the video
In Prime I guess it didn't pop the screen up for each kit, but if you watch his item count, it grows. It worked the same way years ago, when they switched from L8 being the highest level to L16 being the highest level. Many agents instantly "skipped" or gained multiple levels when that happened.
@RoLLeOwnZ Good job leveraging a place no one plays with an event to level up quickly. For the areas that you stated in your original post that normally get cleared, but didn't. was that a request to agents, or just sheet dumb luck that no one cleared our fields during a double AP event?
2 Res agents play there regularly. Most of the time from wednesday to sunday. So my window was short. 30 minutes after the portal got destroyed (from the video) a res agent started to destroy some fields already
nothing requested to let it stay, luck and a good time window
should be banned for wintrading
Got a full video of the said clip? Would be fun to watch the action in full. Congrats btw!
This is amazing!!! Congratulations!!! I can’t imagine how long it took to farm all the keys!
Where exactly was that wintrading? :)
A new kind of Record...
Witrading himself with just ONE account?
It would be more impressive without 2xAP.
Home portal with VR hacking mods? Without any other local agents playing? Not as long as you might think.
i got 40-50 Keys 3 times a day
so basically done in 3 days
Very cool idea and performance. Well done :)
That was amazing! Congratulations!
Dont you also planned to go above lvl8? As you already have the badges it should be easier. The problem is you should put almost 5000 fields right?
i don't see how you could get 750+ fields with only 400 keys to your anchor.
They are massively layered (and very thin) fields. I take it you know how to build a layered field... if your main anchor is A, and you choose a second portal B (some way away) and link it to A, then a portal C (near B) and link it to B and A, and a portal D and link it to B, A and C, and so on, then every extra layer you add from now on uses one key for portal A but puts two fields on that anchor. I can see that the fields in the screenshots aren't all built exactly like that, but to a first approximation there will be two fields for every one link to the main anchor.
Thanks, i see it now, I'm used to milking herringbones for AP. Still seems difficult; you'd also need to plan and farm a lot of other anchors besides A.
They are all fanfields perfectly layered
i optimized the way to quickly make lots of fields in every enviroment. All i need is a lot of keys from 1 single Portal.
