My first anomaly was Obsidian and it was through remote recharging.
Team Leaders of recharging group shares their stories on how they get keys from one place to another, and yes, it always happened during wee hours. While some agents went to other countries just to farm keys before the anomaly date. Such commitment.
Anyway, I always see the anomaly recharging as a mission for us to support our co-agents who are on site, grinding. Hence, Enlightened is outnumbered by the other faction. And this, doesn’t stop us in winning the anomalies.
Recharging is also a venue for us to meet new agents and retired agents too.
