The scores screen (formerly called the intel screen, not to be confused with the Intel Map), accessible from the Ops menu, allows you to view global and regional scores. Scoring is based on the amount of MU held by each faction.

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 toward the checkpoint score.
  • If a field covers more than one cell, each cell counts only the MU present in the cell that is within the field.
  • A septicycle consists of 35 checkpoints; the scores for the septicycle is the average of the checkpoint scores within that septicycle.
  • Agent rankings count all MU captured by the agent in the cell during that septicycle, regardless of whether the field was standing at checkpoint or not.

The Scores Screen

The scores screen displays scoring for any septicycle for any cell or the whole world. By default, the current septicycle in your cell is shown. Here is a breakdown of this screen:

  • At the top is the name of the region being displayed (either the cell name or “GLOBAL VIEW”), and the name of the septicycle being displayed (in the form {year}.{index}). If the current septicycle is shown, a “LIVE” tag appears next to the septicycle name.
  • Below this is a bar chart displaying the septicycle scores for the two factions.
  • Below the bar chart is a graphic displaying the region. If you are viewing global scores, a rotating globe is shown; otherwise, a top-down map is displayed with the cell outlined in orange.
  • If you are viewing scores for a cell, the top three agents that have captured the most MU for that septicycle in the cell are displayed at the upper-left of the map. You can tap “See More” to see the top 50 agents from each faction, as well as your rank (if you captured any MU that cycle). Tapping the name of any agent shows a context menu, allowing you to see their profile or send them a message.
  • Below the region view is a line chart, displaying the MU over time during that septicycle. Each checkpoint is displayed as a square marker on the line.
  • The end of the septicycle on the chart is marked with an orange line, connected to a tag giving the name and the time remaining for the septicycle. (When viewing past septicycles, this will read “000:00:00:00”.) If you are viewing the current septicycle, there will be an orange arrow pointing to the next checkpoint on the chart, with a label displaying the time until the checkpoint.
  • If you are viewing the current septicycle, a button labeled “HISTORY” appears near the lower-left. Tap this to view a list of cards displaying past septicycles and their scores in that region. Tap one of the cards to view the full scores screen for that septicycle.
  • If you are viewing the current septicycle in a cell, a button labeled “ANOTHER CELL” will appear near the bottom center, just above the close button. Tap this to view a list of cards displaying adjacent cells and their current scores. Tap one of the cards to view the full scores screen for that cell.
  • At the bottom of the screen, on each side of the close button, are buttons to toggle between viewing regional and global scores.
  • Tap the X (close) button at the bottom center of the screen to go back to the previous screen.


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, and for some reason, skipping INDIGO, OSCAR, and QUEBEC). 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.
