The intel tab on the ops screen allows you to view global and regional scores. Scoring is based on the amount of MU held by each faction.

Not to be confused with the intel map.

How Scoring Works

Every five hours, a checkpoint occurs, and the MU totals are recorded at that moment. Only control fields standing at the time the checkpoint occurs count towards the score. A septicycle consists of 35 checkpoints; the scores for the septicycle is the average of the checkpoint scores within that septicycle.

Global Score Screen

On the main intel screen, a bar chart displays the current global score for this septicycle. This is a running average of the scores at each checkpoint in the cycle. (The scores shown on the intel map are different: they’re the total MU held by each faction at the moment the intel map page was loaded.)

Below that is a trend chart of the current septicycle. Each tick mark across the X-axis represents a checkpoint; the Y-axis is MU. Each dot on the chart represents a faction’s score at a checkpoint. The yellow circles mark the most recent checkpoint score for each faction. The green and blue horizontal lines are the average score for the cycle for each faction; they correspond to the values shown in the bar chart.

At the bottom you can see the time remaining until the next checkpoint and the end of the current septicycle, and a history button that allows you to view the scores for previous septicycles.

Cells

The world is divided into six major zones by projecting the globe onto the faces of a cube. Each of these zones is assigned a two-character code:

  • North zone (NR)
  • American zone (AM)
  • African zone (AF)
  • Asian zone (AS)
  • Pacific zone (PA)
  • South zone (ST)

Each cube face is then divided into 256 areas in 16 rows and 16 columns. The rows are assigned numbers (01 through 16), while the columns are assigned letters from the NATO phonetic alphabet (ALPHA through SIERRA). Finally, each of these areas is further divided into 16 cells in four rows and four columns. They are numbered 00 through 15, following a Hilbert curve through the area. The names and numbers of these divisions put together constitute a cells unique “address.” For example, the cell where Google’s headquarters are located is named AM01-CHARLIE-07. There are a total of 24,576 cells in the world.

Regional Scores

Tapping the “Regional Scores” button allows to view the same information for your local cell. (If a field covers more than one cell, MU is awarded to a cell proportional to the area of the field that intersects it.) Like the global scoring screen, this screen also has a “History” button to let you view previous septicycles. Tap “Cell Activity” to see a list of nearby cells; tap one of them to see their regional scores screen.

The regional scores screen also shows the three agents that have captured the most MU in the cell during the septicycle. Tap the “See Other Agents” button to see your rank and view a list of the top 50 agents from each faction in your cell, ranked by the amount of MU captured in the cell. To get credit for the MU, you must be the agent that created the field; the agents that threw the two other links don’t get credit. However, the field does not have to be standing at the checkpoint to count for the top agents list.
