A Very Disappointing Moment in Ingress

This was written on 4 October 2017 at 23:56 PM, the day I received my graduation photos from Laguna.

I was shocked to see that my current hacking streak was back to ZERO. It was really grueling to see that it was reset to zero. This is the second time that it happened and it was a sad moment. I thought it was just a glitched and I even hacked three portals near our place just to see if there was a glitch, but, to no avail. It was really reset to ZERO.

All the efforts wasted in just a blink of an eye and in a split second. I do not know what happened. I do not want to think about it any more. I immediately researched if other Ingress players had an experience similar to this issue and it is really a happening, a moment of wasted time and efforts in hacking. In my case, I braved the storms and even when I was sick with influenza which was the worst flu I had experience, I still managed to hack. I did my best to hack since the portals are only near us which is almost 330 metres far from our abode.

I will have to do it again for the third time and hopefully the last time of continuous portal hacking. This Sojourner Ingress badge is really the hardest to achieve aside from the Guardian Portal Ingress badge. It’s a continuous effort of portal hacking for 360 days to achieve the Onyx Sojourner Ingress badge while the Onyx Guardian Portal Ingress badge is achievable after 150 days of maintaining a portal with your own deployed resonators.
