Enlightened Indonesia – Tentang Persahabatan dan Kepercayaan

Halo 🙂 lama banget nggak posting
Kali ini saya mau cerita sedikit tentang keluarga saya yang baru, Enlightened Indonesia dan beberapa operasi (OPS) yang dilakuin bareng-bareng sama mereka 🙂

Enlightened Bandung
keluarga paling deket sama saya.. secara 10 dari 12 bulan dalam satu tahun, saya berdomisili di sana 😀
gelo kalo saya disuruh komen tentang mereka 😀
apalagi tim URC, Unit Reaksi Cepat asuhan @KUTUBUSUK yang punya kebijakan ‘we want no blue’.. apalagi L7+.. paling lama hidup 3 jam 😀
masih inget pas tim Resistance Bandung bikin P8, dan saya lagi belajar buat UAS besoknya.. terus pada bilang ga bisa retake..
dan dengan sedikit waswas, saya cabut dari belajar, macu motor ke Maranatha, tempat adanya P8 Resistance itu… daaaaaannnn ternyataaaa.. mereka ngerjain saya -_-.. sesampainya di lokasi, team betmen : @codotzgunung, @DJembodZ, dan @OrangeDragon lagi santai-santai dan ketawa liat saya panik tergopoh-gopoh.. padahal mereka udah ngehancurin dari tadi.. dasaaarr!! wkwk
tim keluarga @Nebiros (ex-@travalgar), @YouKnowMe @OtoriHanzo (+ istrinya @masihgadis yang udah nggak gadis) @Shiyoga dan @Robometeor
tim cewek-cewek sakti @rhinchan @WinterLuna @anniver @ombrecia dan @hellqueen88
tim keluarga bahahahahagia @KUTUBUSUK @Syrene @formium
penjaga timur @neomatrix @cevden @agentfuxx
si ganteng @maruseri.. adek kelas @dzunnurain.. tukang bikin portal sembarangan @posisi69
@RoanCyrus the legend
sesepuh @Berus @Sinistra dan @Karunos @Brehoh
tim sumedang @blueyes @1stman @SuleSule
temen-temen baru @zackpinunggul @TeedZ @wvidelr
daan tim blek blek yang sangar @Blackant dan @Blackonhell
dua ops yang mengena banget sama tim Bandung itu OPS SSO : Semua Salah OrangeDragon :v dan OPS KuihLapis join dengan ENL South East Asia
image

OPS SSO, nutupin Bandung dengan 4 lapis layer yang seru
image

OPS KuihLapis, 14 layer Bandung – Johor Baru + Seremban – Kota Kinabalu + Labuan yang bikin MU global nyentuh 1.7 milyar
dan kayaknya bakal ada banyak lagi ops yang bakal terlaksana sama tim Bandung ini 😀

The Dragon Slayers
denger-denger, tim sebelah menjuluki para L8 dengan julukan naga, jadi.. saya punya julukan buat temen2 ENL ID, Dragon Slayers.. kenapa? karena pada bikin repot si naga-naga itu 😛
koordinasi yang acak tapi rapi.. individualis tapi sinergis.. campuran antara planner, destroyer, large area explorer, dan operator yang unik.. di mana satu sisi rajin melihat potensi field dan mengorganisasi perealisasiannya, satu sisi cermat mengamati pergerakan tim sebelah, satu lagi gesit sampai tujuan dan beraksi cepat
koordinasi ini udah dibuktikan beberapa kali seperti OPS Jade Equator, yang nutup Jakarta dan Jawa Barat dengan total breaking record 124 juta MU
ditambah OPS Lighthouse ID, bagian dari Global OPS Lighthouse yang menggerakkan tim Padang, Lampung, seluruh Jawa, Kalimantan Timur dan Kalimantan Barat, serta Bali
koordinasi yang apik antara tim Jawa Tengah, Jawa Timur, Jawa Barat dan Bali menghasilkan link bersejarah yang menembus tengah Jawa.. Bali menuju Cacaban, Sumedang.. ditambah kerja sama dengan ENL SEA dan ENL Timor Leste, kami menutup Selat Malaka, Selat Sunda, dan Laut Jawa dengan lapisan hijau benderang
image

dan tahun baru ini, dua OPS dilaksanakan, OPS Kembang Api a.k.a Tusuk-Tusuk Gedung Sate di Bandung, dengan 423 link masuk dan 8 link keluar (seblum dihancurkan spoofer, pemain curang yang menggunakan software agar dia bisa memanipulasi tempatnya) menghancurkan portal Gedung Sate yang notabene saat itu sudah ditutup untuk umum karena sudah malam
image

dan OPS Dagadu (yang disambung oleh rekan di Kuching) persembahan tim Jateng DIY, Padang, dan Ujung Genteng sebagai jawaban dari tim sebelah
ops yang menutup sebagian besar Jawa Tengah dan seluruh Jawa Barat ini menghasilkan 4 layer field dengan total 51 juta MU
meskipun beberapa jam setelahnya field juga dihancurkan oleh spoofer, esoknya, field kembali menutupi.. bahkan ditambah dari agent Kuching dengan 5 layer ber-total 125.000.000 MU
image

itu sebagian kecil dari banyak OPS yang dibuat oleh rekan-rekan ENL ID
saya senang dan bersyukur bisa bergabung dalam keluarga ini
karena kami bukan sekedar organidasi struktural yang diikat dengan hirarki.. kami adalah gerombolan kumuh yang punya satu hati 🙂

yang seperti saya bilang.. unik

kami akan ukir lagi sejarah-sejarah
dan kerja sama dengan ENL Global.. khususnya EMP, ENL SEA

XM for all

catalystro

my other half : catalystro

cheers ^^
it’s been two weeks since my last login.. I’m getting worried about me.. welcome back!!

LOL
if you are an Ingress Player, you should know what I am talking about 😛

in this post, I will tell my story about my other half
the other me who lives in depth of Ingress World
why I consider catalystro is my other half? because in this world, everyone knows me as Dimas Ramadhan Abdillah Fikri.. a fat ball who rolls along the way.. sometimes mess up with foods and lab works.. or just trolling around and makes silly things
but beyond that, I live in other world.. not real world.. a game world called Ingress.. as a strategist, lab-centric, and virus user named catalystro
I tell this story because I will leave my other half birth place : Tokyo soon.. T^T.. this story is mostly about my experience and my respect words to all my friends who had fought together and raised me here..

how did I become catalystro?
so this is my story

start by blog-walking to my friend’s blog : h2cx, and saw post about this augmented reality game
his description about the game made me interested to the game
I am actually a gamer.. but just a normal gamer, not a freak gamer who will spend many hours inside a game
I played RPG games such as FF and Tales before.. I like RPG because it has a story
and this game is just beyond that
in RPG, the story is about the main character of the game.. how does he/she build his/her ability.. and in the end, he/she save the world from the bad boss
this game, however, has a story about YOU.. yep.. you.. because basically the main character that you are playing in this game is yourself
this makes me want to try this game.. I want to be a character in a game.. very much..
then I applied as a beta tester to Ingress site
in 2nd of April 2013, my invitation code came
I am little bit worried that time because this game is only can be played in Android device while I was subscribing iPhone on Japanese Softbank network
fortunately, Softbank had opened tethering mode from its iPhone 5.. and I subscribed that too.. so I tether my iPhone to the biggest Ingress Scanner that could possibly use : Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.. LOL.. can you imagine playing ingress in 10.1 inch tablet 😛

since that day, i tried to understand the gameplay
hacking, deploying, firing busters, and levelling
firstly, i thought that this game is individual game
but yeah.. i was wrong.. this game is totally social game.. you won’t get more achievement of you play solo
so when I hit COMM and shouted : ‘hello.. new player here ^^ please take care of me’, there were two messages replied mine.. one is from first player that I met : hypercat, and one is from ‘most commenter on my G+’ 😛 syap5yoj ^^
I was so happy that I know I am not alone
that time, I had started to look at Intel map.. searching available playground near me..
i didn’t know how the AP works that time.. i just hacks and firing busters wildly without knowing that busters only work for enemy portals
then when I hit level 2, hypercat wanted to meet me
I met him at Ebisu.. he taught me many basics things including how to levelling fast with resonator defend
luckily, I also meet first other faction player that day : tagoh
he destroyed my portals with his L7 busters (while my resonators were only L2)
so i just ran to that portal and hit deploy as fast as i can.. until my resonators were drained.. lol
and I hit L3 that night.. thanks to tagoh ^^
I also met another green player that night : ShichuanRedPanda he gave me some keys for me to built fields
at that time, the nearest portal from my form is one station from my dorm station
I always went to that station first before going home
after getting L3, I had confidence to do my first attempt to retake portal.. stupid me, they were L5 portal made by L7 player who works near there.. I could retake one but when I tried to take the other down, I ran out of bursters before it was down.. then I had to walk 300 meters to reach nearest portal and prayed that it would give me some bursters.. then.. something happened :
the previous owner of portal attacked the portal that I just took.. so I ran, reach the portal and deployed manh resos as he fired all my resos away..
and that is.. the first time I met one of my bet ingress player friend, tdmkt.. I found him on his phone, and I greeted him.. then we talked (with my very poor Japanese) a little bit, exchange our emails, and made friend ^^.. thanks to him, I got my L4 because of my reso defend when he attacked.. 😛

day by day passed.. there was no day without playing ingress..
before going to campus, when commuting home, or when I found some interesting field to destroy
I joined high level farming for the first time when I was still 6
I met many hiLVL players there.. kirikaze, felice99, tomoya, nag, Athena9800, and SuperAja..

the first big operation for me was “The Green Day”
I was L7 at the moment.. I planned the event via G+ community and boom..
that day maybe was the first day many L8 portals are standing in Tokyo
we met in Azabujuban.. the most portal-condensed area that time.. then went to Shibuya to make it L8s
Shibuya was known as one of Resistance’s headquarter since many Resistance players live there
and that day, the most important portal for Tokyo Resistance : Hope-kun was transformed to be L8 portal for the first time.. by Enlightened players
that day I met Momongadget.. the very first female player that I met (and she was already 8!!), kuroneko007, are te, morirobo, 0zy, and hirotakes
we marched from Azabujuban to Shibuya.. laughed togehter, fight together..
that day I found that Ingress is not just a game.. it is also a very good social media
I was surprized how I got so many friends from this game.. and they are very kind

and at last, I made my 8 while accompanying my friend who came from Korea..
I got my 8 in Tokyo station.. so happy that time

I found that I like to do some experiment for new items
including when virus came out, I think I was the first player who made L8 portal in single name (with virus)
thanks to hiyoko145 who accompany me to try 4 L8 for one L8 portal (with ADA and Jarvis) experiment
and also my dear enemy, alexfcc who give me data for Force Amp and Turret damage calculation

event by event I passed with my Enlightened friends
Ueno farm.. Yasukuni Raid..
all were so much fun
and then The Cross-Faction Meet-up
my last official event in Tokyo

since that day, I barely play aggresively..
I only farm to get as many items as I can get
these item will be brought back to Bandung, Indonesia.. where my friend strugge hard to keep the city green

to all Tokyo players, thank you for all things that you had given to me
you are the best.. friends whom I want to meet again someday
people whom I think as my family here..
I will never forget you all

I will keep being catalystro in my country
with my new friends who also take my arm warmly
without forgetting all things that you, Tokyo players had taught me

5 New Mods : what we (think) we know

here is the summary of some data based on my own experiments and another people posts
thank you for everyone that had tried the new mods to get data
I will use these abbreviation to make it simpler
Heat Sink = HS
Multi-Hack = MH
Force Amp = FA
Link Amp = LA
Turret = TR

Update Change log
10 July 2013 : fix new hypothesis formula for heat sink
11 July 2013 : fix new more reliable formula for heat sink and multi-hack *credit to sorgo, Robin, and QVinto

Common Properties
1. Availability
same as shields, there are 3 classes of new mods : common, rare, and very rare
but until now, only HS and MH had been confirmed to have this rarity properties
other than HS and MH, all still have rare properties

2. Recycle
common = 40XM
rare = 80XM
very rare = 120XM edited : 100 XM

3. XM Deployment Cost
common = 400XM (tried to HS)
rare = 800XM (tried to TR and FA)
very rare = 1000XM (?? same with shields properties?) *confirmed

Heat-Sink

heat sink

heat sink


heat sink decreases the cool-down time for each hacks
common = -20%
rare = -40% edited : -50%
very rare = -60%(??) edited : -80% (??) edited : -70%
the calculation is based on last value so :
1st Common : -20% > 80% = 4 mins cool-down
2nd Common : -20%-20%*80%(last value) > 64% = 3.12 mins cool-down
etc

New (Hypothesis) Formula for Heat Sink
Deployment of 2nd, 3rd, and 4th mods will decrease less rare mod
the less rare mod parameter will be halved starts from 2nd deployment
example :
HS(C) + HS(C) : 20+8% = 28% = 1-(1-0.2)*(1-0.2/2)
HS(C) + HS(C) + HS(C) : 28+7.2% = 35.2% = 1-(1-0.2)*(1-0.2/2)*(1-0.2/2)

HS(C) + HS(R) : 20+35% = 55% = 1-(1-0.2/2)*(1-0.5)
HS(R) + HS(C) : 50+5% = 55% = 1-(1-0.5)*(1-0.2/2)

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AtBPyzAvlFORdC1kemN0YU9MSS1UMmhDbWtBb090ZUE#gid=0
(thanks sorgo)

update : heat-sink not only reduces cool-down, but also burnout time confirmed : heat sink only decrease of cool-down, burn out time is not affected

Multi-Hack

multi-hack

multi-hack


multi-hack increases the cap of hacks by a player before burned out
common = +4 hacks
rare = +8 hacks
very rare = +12 hacks(??) *confirmed
example :
you deploy 1 common, so you can hack it 4(normal)+4(multi-hack) = 8 hacks before you burn out the portal
Update
2nd deployment will reduce less rare mod
it also use formula [1 0.5 0.5 0.5] like HS
example :
MH(C) + MH(R) = 10 = 4/2 + 8
MH(R) + MH(C) = 10 = 8 + 4/2
MH(R) + MH(R) = 12 = 8 + 8/2
MH(VR) + MH(C) = 14 = 12 + 4/2
MH(VR) + MH(R) = 16 = 12 + 8/2
for further information or example, please go to
https://github.com/jonatkins/ingress-intel-total-conversion/issues/410
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AtBPyzAvlFORdC1kemN0YU9MSS1UMmhDbWtBb090ZUE#gid=0
(thanks sorgo)

there is also report that an agent deploy the mod after he burn out the portal and he got additional hacks from the mod
update : based on report, please notice that MH is per player.. so we can not refresh (remove then deploy new one) by ourself to get additional hack.. we have to add another new one to get additional hack.. the effect of another player placement is still unknown

Force Amp

force amp

force amp


force amp increases the force of portal attack
update : notice that portal attack is not only when you fire Xmp to the portal, but also when you hack the portal
rare :
1st = +2x
2nd = +0.5x > 2.5x
3rd = +0.25x > 2.75x ~ 2.8x
4th = +0.125x > 2.875x ~ 3.0x
example :
L6 portal without FA : base damage = 400 XM
with FA : base damage*2 = 800 XM

Link Amp

link amp

link amp


link amp increases the maximum range of portal link
rare :
base range = X
1st : +X > 2X
2nd : +X/2 > 2.5X
3rd : +X/4 > 2.75X
4th : +X/8 > 2.825X ~ 3X

Turret

turret

turret


turret increases frequency of portal attack
it buffs 2 status :
a. frequency
b. hit bonus
rare : linearly add 2x frequency and 0.2% hit bonus
experiment result and hypothesis :
a. it seems that hit bonus is related to the frequency increment so that the portal won’t always attack two times
b. I tried with my friend, whem he fires one XMP and still get base damage, but when he fires 3 consecutive XMP, logs was : base_damage, base_damage, 2*base_damage

confirmation of some cases are in the comment section
I am sorry that I can not take them all to the main body but please see comment section for the some special cases

again, this is not mine, but us
data will get better if there is more feedback
thank you for all feedback that had been given
that’s all for now
thank you

New Items : Viruses

so, this time I will post Ingress info in English 🙂

you might have known the most recent items these days (May 2013) : the alignment viruses
so, in this post I will share anything that I know about these viruses.. if there is an update for the information, I will replace wrong information to the newest one

Description
There are two kinds of alignment viruses :

Jarvis Virus

Jarvis Virus

Jarvis Virus


This virus is developed by Dr. Roland Jarvis for the sake of Enlightened agents to help Shaper spread its influence

ADA Refactor

ADA Refactor

ADA Refactor


This virus is developed by ADA for Resistance agents to counter the Shaper-friendly virus

Usage

what do they do?
these items are very unique and powerful weapon although the cost is very high
they can flip the alignment of one portal
Jarvis virus changes blue portal to green portal
while
ADA refactor changes green portal to blue portal

who can use them?
all agents from all level could use both kind of viruses regardless their faction
it means
Enlightened agents can use ADA refactor to flip green portal to blue portal
and
Resistance agents can use Jarvis virus to flip blue portal to green portal

how to use them?
the viruses are considered as ‘Weapon’.. same category as Xmp Bursters
1. make sure the portal that you want to flip is in your range
2. select virus from inventory
3. ‘use’
4. select portal that you want to be injected by virus
5. confirm
6. wait and.. voila

how much does it cost?
as I said before, no player restriction to use both viruses as long as they have the viruses
but, the cost of the viruses to use could be a burden to loLVL players
Virus costs = Level_Target_Portal*1000 XM
as you can see there, for L6+, possibility of flipping portal is unlimited since they have 8000 XMs in their bar (flipping L8 portal = 8*1000 = 8000 XMs is possible)
but for loLVL players, they should think of their XMs availability before using any virus

What will happen to portal which infected by virus?
1. the alignment of portal will be flipped (depends on the virus you use)

2. the owner will be changed, portal, resonators, and shields with these condition :

a. if you use your faction virus to enemy portal, the owner of portal, all resonators, and all shields is you
this means, your maximum resonator count will be applied here : if there is one L7 resonator in that portal, you can not deploy other L7 resonator after you flip the portal
this also means, you can remove all the shields
maximum resonator count doesn’t apply to resonators that are flipped : if you flip L8 portal, all L8 resonators will be named of you
this is the example of my experiment :

all L8 resonators are mine

all L8 resonators are mine

b. if you flip your faction portal, the owner of portal, all resonators, and all shields is ADA or Jarvis (depends on the virus you use)

3. all links and fields will be destroyed

4. no AP gain from flipping, destroying links, and fields

Where to find?
before today (31 May 2013), the only way is from passcodes
but since today, it will be dropped by portals in 0.1% chance
so keep your eyes open

Recycle??!!!
it only gives you 100 XM by recycle.. beware!!

Tips
1. be a hiLVL first before using any virus.. this make you be able to flip hiLVL portals.. they won’t help you level up since they don’t give any AP
2. use them very carefully.. since it’s very rare.. and pay attention to the Recycle button!!!
3. choose L6+ portals to flip.. better if L7+.. best is L8 😉 of course.. because you can’t make them alone

Trick
there is a trick to use the virus to make hiLVL (L8) portal with less agents
since the owner of resonators in flipped portal is the one that use virus (or ADA or Jarvis), by deploying L8 resonators while flipping the portal back and forth (faction – enemy – faction – etc), L8 portal could be made by even one L8 player and one L5+ player (need for flipping L7 portal with 8888888*, L7 = 7000 XMs = L5 player’s max-XM)
but of course, this method will costs a lot of viruses (depends on how many L8) and huge amount of XMs

Example
here is the youtube link from my operation of using Jarvis Virus to L8 Resistance portal
it might be the first L8 portal with single name in the world ^^
enjoy

that’s all for now

happy hacking ^^
