E061 - Streaking - Sojourner VS Hacking
The Sojourner badge is one of the oldest badges in Ingress and one of the most difficult to get an onyx badge for.  One slip up and it is at least another YEAR before you can reach onyx.  The hacking streak was recently introduced and although it is more forgiving if you break the streak it actually will take longer to get the onyx badge regardless if you screw up or not.  We look at the two similar stats and give you the details and some hints on how you might go the distance and get that onyx badge.
