The Via Noir Anomalies have come to an end. Agents, once again you've shown through your passion and commitment to each other what amazing experiences you create on a daily basis.
When you started, few people understood what you were doing. Now four years on, your energy continues to inspire. You blazed a trail for the world. Congratulations on another exceptionally hard-fought and exciting Anomaly series.
This day began with Enlightened wins in Melbourne and Seoul, while the Resistance took Surabaya.
Then, the Anomalies swept across Europe. The Resistance began to push back. They took Rome, but the Enlightened held both Vilnius and Sofia.
When the day began in America, the Series score was 7.5 to 6.5, the Enlightened leading by just one point.
Chicago, with 1711 to 543, was controlled by the Resistance. And Miami, with 716 to 165, belonged to the Enlightened.
That brought the Series to 9 versus 8. Still, just a 1 point difference.
New Orleans carried 2 points overall, and at Measurement 3, with just one hour remaining, the score in New Orleans was practically tied.
The entire Series came down to this one city and this one final hour.
It was a hard fought hour.
With 804 to 779, New Orleans and the Via Noir Anomalies belong to the Enlightened.
