Great banners still in the eyes of June 2019. Here are two reminders,
My GPS shifts like a hell in mission CBC and Simcoe Park, notably the portal Convention Center Neon Wall and Glenn Gould Recording Studio. Before I do this mission all the portals around are captured except these two portals, which means even local players find these portals difficult to capture. So I guess the GPS shifting here is universal, in a way. I have spent almost an hour in the building. The last thing I did is to try going to the opposite street and come back and forth to see if you got your position inside the building. Connecting to their WiFi does not help.
As of June 2019, the Queens Park (North) is under construction and luckily the portals inside the Queens Park North is removed so there is only two portals of this mission.
I finished the banner by bike share toronto. The 30 minute max riding time is very inconvenient and I would suggest rent a decent dedicated bike if you are not a local people.
Great banners and best for first-time tourists. Bigress in 4 hours. The Enermy Mine is a limited time mission and if you find that it is not live, it may has been taken down.
1. The Lincoln Park Zoo is not 24/7 so be sure to google the open time and plan.
2. You may need drift on John Hancock Center and Aqua of the Enermy Mine.
3. As of June 2019, there is 3 mission day, including this, in Chicago. Keep an eye on what mission you are going to do or you might screw up the banners.
Great introduction to Vancouver. The Fish Head portal of the aquarium needs drift if you do not plan to get inside. There is a pedestrian-access-only road and you can walk in to see if can get access. If there is one mission that is not 24/7, then it should be the aquarium.
All other portals are fairly accessible. The waypoints are carefully configured and I've learned a lot from the extra information on Vancouver.
The MD Series is awesome. I spent a whole day around Victoria Harbour and just wished there can be more.
Every portal is accessible 24 / 7 and you don't need any drift, just hack and enjoy the harbor view.
As of Apr 2019, the route alongside the harbor from Golden Bauhinia Square to Central and Western District Promenade is still under maintenance, you would have to detour to Convention Ave and Lung Wui Road for pedestrian access to Tamar Park. It is roughly 2km walk without available public transit.
Personally I recommend ferry as one of the transport between missions. I began with Lei Yue Mun, ferried to Fireboat Alexander Grantham, Shau Kei Wan Typhoon Shelter, then ferried back to Kwun Tong Promenade. The mission is so carefully chosen that you can finish the series via zigzagging between coasts.
