NL-1331 for the first time comes to Kazakhstan to continue its somewhat mysterious XM research mission. Karaganda is the last stop of this trip and sources have confirmed a valuable dead drop will happen at each stop of the NL-1331 tour with the possibility of multiple dead drops happening in each city leading up to last NL-1331 stop. Look for dead drop announcements here https://plus.google.com/+NovemberLima/posts. We will be giving out lots of gear cards to everyone in attendance as well as other similar official Niantic swag. The new 2018 NL-1331 tiered free van badge will be available for the first time in Kazakhstan (onsite only), and select Ingress Official Niantic Gear will be available for pre sale only for this event only. A limited amount of new Ingress store items may also be available for pre sale only. A series of official NIA Meetups with Niantic's Ethan Lepouttre is happening the week of May 7th-12th. Agents you are officially invited to take part in the NL-1331 event. Character badge awards will also be given out for the NL-1331 agent stats competition at each official stop along the way. The event is free for anyone to attend.
For 2018 we will be moving over to a tiered NL-1331 badge. This will work like anomaly badges where you must register for the event and hack the registration portal (during the event time only). You do not have to purchase anything to receive this badge but you must check in using either a free or paid ticket and having entered each ticket with a valid agent name. Then you must Hack the NL-1331 (registration portal). If you are ordering for a family or group please include agent name of every person you want to get the onsite tiered badge.
