Mind Units (MUs) are the primary scoring metric of Ingress. Mind Units (MUs) represent the population within a Control Field Δ. Mind Units (MUs) are calculated once at each Checkpoint for Cell scores every 5 hours and combined into the Global score. However, only Cycle ○ scores (35 checkpoints; 175 hours) will be recorded into global history. If a Control Field Δ covers multiple Cells at a scoring Checkpoint, the Mind Units (MUs) are divided proportionally between the regional Cells that the Field covers based on the fraction of the area of the Control Field Δ that is in each Cell.
Regional Mind Unit scoringEdit
This competition hinges on maintaining control of those Mind Unit (MU) fields through key scoring Checkpoints that happen every 5 hours. Each competition period has a 175 hour duration. If a Control Field Δ is maintained through the Checkpoint time, then those Mind Units (MUs) are added to that faction's running score in that Cell. The faction with the highest average Mind Unit (MU) score at 175 hour Cycle end, wins that Cycle.
The ENL and RES bar charts show the average Mind Units (MUs) scored during the current 175 hour competition Cycle. This score is not the same as the global Mind Unit count shown on the Intel Map, which reflects total Mind Units (MUs) held at that point in time.
Regional Cell ViewEdit
The ENL and RES bar charts show the the average Mind Units (MUs) scored during the current 175 hour competition Cycle. This score is an average of the Mind Units (MUs) that are maintained by each faction through the scoring Checkpoints that occur every 5 hours.
The Top Agents are ranked by Mind Units (MUs) captured during the current Cycle. Only the Agent who creates the third link and completes a Field will receive Mind Unit credit toward the Top Agents list. If you created a Field that was destroyed before a Checkpoint measurement, the Mind Units (MUs) would count toward your Top Agents ranking but not towards the total regional Cell score.
