Difficult to write on this one.
Menen is a charming town close to the border with France
The picture in the scanner is lovely, mainly because I personaly like old postcards
But then the route... Like agent 4NG3LDU5T has said before me: you Will need heat sinks, not because you'll hack in a wrong order, but because missions start where the previous one ends or missions are a copy of the previous one in reverse order. I don't mind visiting portals several times in one banner, but this one could do with an update to create a more logical route
Thank you beekillers to meet us IRL
In the beginning you have to walk Longer distances between the portals, but it's because you walk away from the city center. Positive btw, because you'll have more uniques
When you skip portals at the end of a mission, be patient, they'll be in the next one or Bring along heat sinks ;)
At the start is a shopping area where you can park your car (free on sunday)
Enjoy the walk and Eeklo *** thank you Wolfieke123
In the beginning the route is a little chaotic in my opinion, especially because it's made by a local player.
In the city center it gets more logical so you don't have to cross the canals
Questions are easy: answers can be found at the portals or are multiple choice
What about the Waypoints: could have avoided a lot of them, a park with several portals is not included in the banner although you pass through it ...
A banner through my home town which I loved! Route is logical and luckily for me this time of year: it avoids the very busy city center where everybody is doing x-mas shopping ;)
The only 'comment'; as a RES player I don't like the picture of mission 24 :D
Thank you to the creator who invited us and our experience to walk this banner -> see comment 4NG3LDU5T
very nice is the variety: villages with pubs and resto's but also rural area where you walk in the fields.
HomerGAdams knows his town, that's for sure!
After walking a lot of missions you immediately notice the good ones and this was a GOOD one
Route is fluid and takes you to the inner city as Well as cosy neighboorhoods around it
HIGHLY RECOMMAND THIS ONE if your visiting the RUHR area
The cemetery is open from 7.30 am till 9 pm so not 24/7
I must say, creating a fluid route on a cemetery is not easy, but the creator of this banner has succeeded !
I enjoyed the walk very much and I recommand to fellow players to do this banner when in the neighbourhood.
Lovely way to get to Knox Recklinghausen, a town which I wouldn't visit without Ingress
As already said, in the last missions you walk the same tour 3x...
It's not a recent banner, so maybe time for an update?
The questions are very easy
I'm a local and took me about +/- 6,5 hours by bike!
with sometimes very dangerous situations because of u-turns in Busy Streets
Route goes back and forward. By mission 27 used 5 heat sinks
A very nice introduction to Dongen!
I like it that the creator also takes you around town, not only the center center is visited
Up to mission 16 the route is very logical, but then be careful if you're an enthousiastic hacker... The order of the portals now gets a bit chaotic
It's a constant check with the portal order to check which portals can be hacked ... If not Bring LOTS heat sinks
I would advise the creator to check the portal order: not that easy for tourists unfortunately, could be better
Not only the inner city is visited, so more uniques
Walked about 9 hours without pauses (Cap, destroy,... The whole gamma)
The questions are easy: when you look at portals or their names you'll find it and otherwise there's Google to help you
I would advise to hack the first portal of mission 1 by car, the rest you can do on foot and enjoy the beautiful mountains on your walk
Nice job @UNiXGuru for showing us around Seefeld
What an achievement, 4NG3LDU5T and myself were the first ones to walk it. Loving banners is not enough for this one, you need good to excellent physique to finish it. Steap hills, walks through rough and small - sometimes even dangerous - woods...
But the views on the way are WAUW!!
Take your picknick, enough to drink and enjoy it
Tip: offcourse portals are not close to one another, in between them, put your phone away. For one to keep An eye on the road, and second you'll miss lots of amazing things
You walk in the most beautiful surroundings!
In the beginning it envolves some climbing (steap Streets) and portals are further from each other, but once you enter the center of Telfs it gets easier.
Good job, enjoyed it!
A very Nice banner which takes you through beautiful nature. At the end you'll also pass the city center
Bonus: start & finish at the same portal which is easy to park the car
We did it on foot, a good advise is to take a pic-nic with you
Mission 11 & 12 take you through a graveyard which is open from 8am-sunset
I enjoyed my visit very much, the creator does not only take you to the center, but also to the portals a little further away. Great job!
5 stars for this one: logical route, lovely little town
Well done @kevbbs!
Feel free to adjust your route, lots of new portals since the banner was first launched so with a little bit of effort more uniques than 68
An 18km walk through the forest and recreation park 'puyenbroeck', but it was wurth it!
Check opening hours and events on their website before planning the banner, to avoid portals that can't be reached
On rainy days good footwear is recommanded
And take something to drink, the first pub is in mission 14
Where do I start?
Mission 1 to 7 are best done by bike or car because of the distance between the portals
Also by car you háve to get out, most of the portals cannot ben reached from the car
Mission 7 ends on a mainroad, not that easy to start a new mission when in a car. My advise: let mission 7 and one portal earlier, it's much safer
M8 (from portal 3) to M16 (until portal 3) van be done on foot, but the car or bike are again a better option
But M17 brings you to the center for the 4th time. So be careful hacking!
But the end... What was the creator thinking...it's in the middle of nowhere: you'll see a cluster of 4 portals. You have to pass the 1st one (don't hack!), Hack the 2nd, go báck to the first en go báck to 2nd
I already walked a lot a banners but this one drove my CRAZY. Would not advise it at all
Beautiful little town, Brielle; very cosy and relaxed to walk around. End here ends the positive feedback
Crazy routing, portals will get burned if you hack 2 early, so ben careful and check the order
It seems like the creator selected his portals randomly instead of creating a logical route
My advise: walk your own banner, make notes while doing it and improve! Only then I would recommand it to other agents.
Lucky me, because the creater walked along
The first part m1-8 takes you on a tour through Bornem, the route is very logical and takes you through the center with lots of posibilities for a break ánd through a forest area where I enjoyed the peace and quiet. On a rainy day I would therefore recommand good footwear!
M9 Starts at the beginning Point of the banner where you have the choice to walk 3km to the next village (Puurs) or take your car to continue the walk there. M13 ends at 'Coolhem', a forest with lots of portals to visit. Again, take your car for the last portal of this mission, to start 14 at the location. At the end you'll find a bar/restaurant for refreshments
My advise is to do this banner on foot or by bike, NOT possible by car. On the way you'll pass more portals, because of OPR they are not (yet) in the missions. Reward is a beautiful wolf on your scanner
Feisty banner this one, but we were warned by other agents: long distance between portals ,especially towards the end
But despite this I enjoyed the walk inthis beautiful surroundings
Practical note: take something to drink/eat with you. When you exit the town center it will take a long time before you'll pass a supermarkt or café
Een ontdekking Roosendaal, erg gezellig om rond te wandelen!
Omstreeks missie 12 passeer je een park wat niet toegankelijk is tussen 24u-6u
De banner zelf volgt een mooie route, met hier en daar een kleine overlapping die niet storend is
This banner brought me to unique spots in a city that once was my hometown. For that I want to thank the creator.
The route itself could have been more logical, cross check the portals of the mission very well or you Will need heatsinks (
Be careful: if you hack every portal on your route you will need a lot of heatsinks OR the portals Will be burned. The route is not very logical.
A lot of stairs have to be climbed, but that's what the area is all about. So not suitable for wheelchairs of buggy's this one
Cemetery at the end closes at 17h30, you need almost 1 hour there..keep that in mind
Start the banner before Lunchtime if possible.
You need around 4 hours to finish IN the parc which closes around 19h30
I liked the surroundings : a quiet haven in a busy city with a lovely picture on your scanner
Starts at Eiffel Tower where there are safety checks, at Busy Moments you can lose a lot of time here.
We hoped to see a lot of Paris highlights but were disappointed because besides the Eiffel Tower and Place de la Bastille no known spots are visited
A very Nice way to discover Hengelo, van really recommand it
But I agree with 4NG3LDU5T: capture or upgrade not that easy when you pass several portals more than once on your route of for lowel level agents
A very Nice walk through Ostend
Besides the seaside it avoides the most Busy spots (if you would do this high season)
Only thing I would strongly advise the creator is said here already: change the route in mission 10: almost 3km for 1 portal is not realistic. I would strongly advise to change this and then it could be a favourite for a lot of agents
A beautiful banner!
You don't only visit the center, the creator also takes you a little bit further in missions 1-12 but in such a logical way that i enjoyed every step of it,
Missions 13-18 take you through the center, you can finish with something to eat or drink
Thank you franky008
The creator's name is warhoofd, i think he was a warhoofd when he created this banner:
Very unlogical route, 2 missions end with the same portal as the endportal of the previous one ☹️
Mission 2 has a portal (bowlingpin) which van only ben hacked while on the parking of the bowling alley, but the alley is closed for several time, luckely for is the gate was open, but in fact we were trespassing (!)
Would not recommand it for the route, but for the town itself
Didn't know Hellevoetsluis, I was surprised by its beauty
this banner followes a logical route and gives you in between the opportunity to enjoy the scenery of this Coastal town
Go, walk but most of all enjoy!
Leuke banner om en in Maassluis. Het begin is vooral om, maar het panorama maakt dat helemaal goed. Op het einde kom je meer in het centrum en volgen de missies elkaar sneller op
Ik zou hem aanraden bij bevriende (en onbekende
At the end of mission 18 I needed to hack 2 portals at Markiezenhof , a beautiful little garden and a place to pauze, which I was doing around 17h30 (Sunday) when a lady Came to close the gate. Ik could convince her to wait 5 more minutes
Because of the comment of other agents we skipped mission 1-30 and started with 31
Right arrow the beginning we enjoyed it very much, but the part at Hendrik(a)kade is unlogical
Day 1 we ended at mission 124 because we were a líttle bit fed up with the route and even wondered of the makers had test run their banner
Quickly after starting day 2 we were sure that wasn't there case, OH my what did they think
For Every banner I walk, I do a bit of research.
If you're not from the neighbourhood: the best thing to do is mission 1,2,3 in Moordrecht on foot; also portal 1,2,3 of mission 4 is in this lovely quiet Dutch town
Then take your car to the next portal (it's only 4km, but you also have to walk back
I love the design (like old post cards very much)!
From mission 23 to the start of mission 24 you have to walk +/- 1km which is a bit far so far along in the banner...
All in all Nice walk not only in the city center
A very nice way to explore Leuven, it takes you to parts where other banners don't come. The route is logical. When you pass portals that are not included: a lot of universaty buildings are closed in July/August so not within reachable distance, credit to the maker to take this in consideration
What a lovely walk through killesbergpark! This park has so many different themes that you can wander around for quit some time
And call atmosphere because not in the busy city center. During the day time also food&drinks available
Een mooie banner doorheen Leuven, een studentenstad met levendige atmosfeer
Hou er rekening mee dat er een paar straten zijn die serieus klimmen zijn
Hoogtepunt is het groot begijnhof, prachtig! Maar goede schoenen dragen want hobbelig qua bestrating
De route is logisch ontworpen
We did mission 1->4 (except last portal) on foot, this goes through the city center of De Panne and the beach boulevard, not so easy by car
Last portal mission 4 -> mission 9 by car: portals are rather far from each other (sometimes more than 1km). Mission 10-11-12 are easy on foot next to the water in Nieuwpoort
Note: try to do this low season: in sumlertimecwith all the tourists visiting the Belgian coast traffic Will be too busy for cargressing
Nice banner through the historical city of Malines. Sometimes a bit criss cross but overall Good route
Be careful: every 6 missions the name of the banner charges (name is the same, but other language!)
In my opinion the most beautiful banner in Belgium and fantastically made!
Only remark is on the route: the renbaan should have been the turning point near the sea; after 38km an extra km for only 2 portals...
I recommand to do this banner in the day time! Took us about 7 hours to complete, but this includeseverything: walking, destroying, fielding, linking....
Be sure to wear good footwear, cobbly roads and steap roads, also stairs become your part
a Quick way to discover Brussels from Koningsplein to Kunstberg and Grand place. Inclusief destroying, deploying, linking, fielding,... took us about 2hours
The mission(s) on Kunstberg are a little unlogical. Overall a must to when in Brusssels!
there are already a lot of banners in Antwerp, this one concentrates in the neighbourhood of the MAS museum to the city center and back. Keep in mind that - at the moment - road works can make the route a little more complicated, but these will finish off course.
A banner with questions is always thricky, but this one certainly is. First of all: congratulations to the maker who obviously has put in a lot of effort in making the questions BUT I for one do not need a history lesson while walking a banner (I'm Very interested in history, btw) The difficulty level of the questions are that high that without Google and Wikipedia it's impossible to solve them and because of this it's very time consuming.
A very Nice and logical route from the MAS museum to the inner city
At the moment there are road workshop going on near the museum so it's possible that you have to walk other streets, but these are temporary of course :)
what's especially fun: you can either walk JARVIS first and then ADA or the other way around!
A lovely banner through a part of Ukkel
Mission 1 and 2 are a bit weird: you have to walk almost 1km to Some portals at the and of mission 1, but mission 2 starts back where mission 1 started. In my modest opinion those missions switched and the route is logical. From 3-6 it's perfect and via quiet routes where there's not to much traffic
A Quick and easy banner through Echternach. The only thing that could have been better: there's a little parc next to the parking where the banner starts/ends and these portals are not included in the banner.
A very beautiful banner which leads you to the whole of Luxembourg. Special congratulations to the designer who used the different hight levels of the city in a fluent way!
Notice that you have to do a lot of stairs and climbs onto steap cobbled roads and that a certain level of fitness and good shoes are necessary.
Although other agents who walked this banner found the route horrible it's not thát bad. I have to admit that sometimes you have questionmarkes, but all in all a very nice one to walk in the beautiful city Trier
In combination with Antwerp Deurne North banner a very intensive walk. If you don't mind riding a bike in a city centre with lots of traffic I would even recommand doing it by bike. At the end of the day I walked 35km in total without taking wrong routes
Niet alleen een kleurrijke liefdevolle prent op je scanner, maar ook een hele leuke banner die je bij de belangrijkste portals van Ekeren brengt. Toegegeven missie 9/10/11 zijn langere wandelafstanden maar bannerfanaten zullen begrijpen dat het de moeite loont om deze unieke portals toch op te nemen. De banner is overigens perfect per fiets te doen mocht je niet graag wandelen
Missie 7 en 8 zijn in park De Bist- 24/7 toegankelijk, maar onverlicht dus een lampje meenemen indien je ' avonds op pad gaat
Proficiat aan de maker en veel hack-, link-, field-,... plezier
Lier is a beautiful city near Antwerp and this banner takes you to the highlights.
Keep in mind that the exit where you're supposed to enter the beguinage is closed between 10pm and 7am, however the main entrance should be open 24/7.
This is one of the nicest banners I did! True: you pass Some portals twice, but this gives you the opportunity to link and/or field.
Keep in mind that the park at the end is NOT open 24/7
Sint-Niklaas is also a city with lots of eat/ drink possibilties
GO * WALK * ENJOY
Persoonlijk doe ik liever banners te voet, ipv cargress MAAR deze banner omvat een logisch ontworpen route (proficiat Runner81!) doorheen het mooie landschap van de Kempen.
De portals kunnen wel veilig gehackt worden, omdat overal gelegenheid is om even in de berm te staan of even te parkeren.
Let op als je banner doet in de winter: op kleine landweggetjes wordt niet gestrooid
A banner that takes you through a quiet area of The Hague, not through the city Center
What in my opinion coups have been done better:
* information about mission 23-23: adjust this to the main information of the banner!!!!
* as a female agent I think it's important that once in a while you can go to the toilet, but no facilities on route untill mission 10
General info: take food/drinks with you, you're away from the city Center (supermarket on route) and be careful for the trams!!!
A very nice banner to combine with the Camden one, but be careful hacking portals in that case to avoid burned out situations
Keep in mind (for tourists) that Camden is a popular attraction so it can be (very) busy especially in Camden Market. Not sure if this Market space closes in the evening
What a lovely banner, enjoyed every single one off the 66 missions
You walk on the river banks, where you don't have to keep an eye on traffic (lights) :)
Although I visited London 15+ times, I Discovered new area's, thank you for that
What started off as a lovely banner from mission 1-12 changed into complete frustration from mission 13 towards the end: during some of the missions clues 'guide' you to the next portal. For tourist these clues can be difficult; also general knowledge is necessary!
Part 3 of the banner: third frog is hopeless!!! Mission 5/12 is -again - with clues: we wandered around for an hour (!!) and through the help of and Google and iitc we found the location of Mr Buchanan's portal...
Keep in mind that although you find places to eat/drink or toilets easy in London not so in part 3 of this banner
Total walking time is definitely not 6,5 hours, we needed nearly 11 hours to complete
What a lovely way to explore Chinatown and Soho
A busy Saturday evening maybe not the best moment to do it: paying attention to waypoints and portals following each other closy, passphrases ánd crowdy pavements
Be careful and patient with hacking the portals: you have go accross that often that portals get burned out!
The beginning (missions 1-4): not in a logica order, coups have been done better!!!
Nice way to discover tower bridge area
What a lovely banner to explore from Tower Bridge up to Blackfriars taking a stroll on the river banks.
Indeed you need to give a passphrase from mission 2, but if you pay a little attention they're very easy!
De charme van het mooie Nijmegen kan je aan de hand van deze banner ontdekken, MAAR enkele werkpunten/aandachtspunten voor de maker:
1. Volgorde: wat is het nut van een poort hacken, terug te moeten voor 2 poorten die je gepasseerd bent en dit zo binnen enkele van de 36 missies?? Continue heen en weer.
2. Volgorde: je passeert 2x het eindpunt. Waarom de banner niet laten eindigen terug dichter bij het centrum? Zeker agents van buiten de stad zullen het apprecieren dat ze terug dichter bij hun geparkeerde wagen zijn ipv 3,5 km ver!
3. Eerste poort missie 8 en laatste poort missie 7 zijn dezelfde
4. Eerste poort missie 23 en laatste poort missie 22 zijn hetzelfde
=> er zijn voldoende poorten in de buurt om dit te vermijden
5. Begin van de banner: poort keizer Karel staat in het midden van een rotonde waar 3 rijen auto's rijden en geen oversteekplaatsen zijn naar het midden; dit is LEVENSGEVAARLIJK!!!
6. Goffertpark vanaf missie 30 prima 's avonds toegankelijk maar géén verlichting en kleine paadjes... niet voor angsthazen
Indien deze opmerkingen kunnen verholpen worden heb is de banner een aanrader!
De nummering van missie 1, 11 en 21 is raar zichtbaar. We hebben goed naar de print moeten kijken om geen foute volgorde aan te houden, dit kan best aangepast worden.
Heel mooie wandeling doorheen Nijmegen, de Waalkaai is prachtig
Een supermooi gemaakte banner door een agent die aan alles heeft gedacht: unieke portals, afwisselende route doorheen historisch Antwerpen, parken... ook aan de innerlijke mens is gedacht ☺️
Ik ben ervan overtuigd dat zelfs inwoners van Antwerpen nog nieuwe plekjes zullen ontdekken. Een aanrader!
Zo jammer dat de mogelijkheden van Gorinchem niet benut worden. Tot en met missie 13 doe je een mooie route, daarna 5x hetzelfde rondje. Dit kan véél beter en mooier opgelost worden, totaal gebrek aan variatie....Al een geluk dat de prachtige omgeving het enigszins goedmaakt ...
