 Every participating smurf tried to win. Agents played longer, harder and more organized than before. Farms were built in regions which had never seen a farm before, just to replenish item stocks. Agents organised trips to ENL areas with pure force, leaving behind destruction and grinning faces. EVERYONE fielded! EVERYONE modded! EVERYONE (ok, nearly EVERYONE) recharged! Some even tried glyphing! Every participating smurf tried to win. Agents played longer, harder and more organized than before.

-====   WHAT IS SMURF THE EARTH?   ====+==== WHAT IS SMURF THE EARTH? ====
  
 Smurf the Earth is a global competition open to all RES Ingress players. Agents compete in many different categories to see who comes out on top. The competition takes place in the last week of March 2021 and the second week of April 2021, so you have two opportunities to do your best. Stats are recorded via “The Grid” which is a res only stats tool. Important - This is not a Niantic contest, it is organised by Resistance players for Resistance players. Smurf the Earth is a global competition open to all RES Ingress players.

 Any RES agent can take part! Old or young, new or retired! Please invite your friends to take part! Whatever your Ingress style there is a category for you, there are around 40 different categories for different play styles. Even if you’re a lazy player there’s a category for you. And yes, we will have a category if you are still in lockdown mode in 2021. Any RES agent can take part! Old or young, new or retired! Please invite your friends to take part!

-====   HOW DO I WIN?   ====+==== HOW DO I WIN? ====
  
 Get out and play Ingress as much as you can during the weeks involved, and upload your stats to The Grid! There are lots of different categories which are won separately. The categories are not simple like “resonators destroyed” they are complex formulas and combinations of stats, and even some fun categories. We have added new formulas, which we keep a secret until after the event, so everyone has a chance to win, and players cannot game the system. Rules are being finalised and will be released in early March. Get out and play Ingress as much as you can during the weeks involved, and upload your stats to The Grid!
