This is another personal achievement for my Ingress gameplay. This is my first Platinum badge for my Ingress game and I was supposed to get this Platinum Ingress badge months ago but unfortunate events forced me to stopped hacking for two days and so my Sojourner counting of days was reset.
It returned back to zero again after I missed two days of hacking. My sojourner statistics stopped counting. I really regret not playing for those two days. It was such a waste of time and effort of 120 days or 4 months of continuous hacking just to get a Sojourner badge which is, I think or guess, is the easiest badge to get especially since three portals are very near in our house. It was only 335 metres away based on the Navigation feature of the game scanner and getting to those three (3) portals are just equivalent to a few minutes of walking and standing. It is a good form of short exercise, too. Anyway, I guess it was destiny that played during that time and now I was able to achieved my first ever Platinum Ingress badge. Even though I had my worst flu ever in the past week, I still was able to hack with one hacking activity done by my wife. I did not want to waste the efforts and just throw away the experience during those hacking days. Tomorrow, I will continue hacking again and it will be another one hundred eighty (180) more days to achieve an Onyx Sojourner Ingress badge but I try my best not to stop hacking and hopefully by January next year, 2018, I will be able to achieve my first ever Onyx badge.
Each Ingress badge have five (5) different tiers, except Founder and event badges and they are as follows:
- Bronze (lowest)
- Onyx/Black (highest)
