Woohoo! Congrats, Vanguards!

Woohoo! Congrats, Vanguards!

Originally shared by Ingress

We received over 3,300 applications for our Alliance of the Vanguard ambassador program. The passion for Ingress many of you exhibited in your submissions made it difficult to choose only twenty-four applicants.

We evaluated many criteria when choosing participants for this initial pilot program. The most important qualities for us were to find people that showed they could be objective, were not focused solely on their achievements, and most of all - had a burning passion for Ingress and the community. We believe our initial group of Vanguards exhibit all of these qualities and more.

The Vanguards will:
- provide Niantic with a sounding board to bounce ideas off of.
- help us amplify the message of Ingress.
- be good stewards of the community.

The Vanguards will not:
- be able to fast track help center tickets.
- officially adjudicate issues like NIA OPS.

We ask that you please respect these boundaries.

We are excited to announce that the following Agents have been accepted as the initial group of Ingress Vanguards:
