LegaZeeOps- Operation: Star Studies (September 2019)

Agents, ZeeOps HQ’s system has been hacked and all of our files on past missions have been erased! You’ll have to recreate past Operations in what we’re calling LegaZeeOps. It’s up to you to keep the legacy of this organization in tact. The missions for this month are the same that were originally available in September 2017’s Operations.

Despite Director Zee’s return, little has been spoken regarding the First Clan’s ominous warnings of the war to come. The Director insists we must continue to focus on the work at hand, because peace is only temporary in this line of work.

Mysterious Zodiac symbols have begun showing up all across the world. It’s up to you to investigate and report back to HQ.

The Zodiac Munzees appear to be reactive to the stars and the time of year. Reports also suggest a masked vigilante is behind the ominous deploys. Be careful and if you come across this Zodiac Vigilante, do not engage until we can figure out his motives.

September 2019 ZeeOps Operations are now live and you can begin planning your Missions to start on the following day. You can plan your Operations at munzee.com/ops/ and purchase more ZeeCred in the Freeze Tag Online Store. Remember that if you hit a snag at any point in your Operation you can use the Mission Mulligan feature to keep going!

This month’s requirements are focused on Western AND Chinese Zodiac Munzees. You can learn more about Zodiac Munzees on the Munzee Help Guide. You can also pick up full sets of both Zodiac types for a discounted price this weekend only in the FT Store! Western Zodiacs might even be a bit more valuable in the near future too…

By completing any Operation this month you’ll also earn the new “LegaZeeOps- Operation: Star Studies” badge.

This month’s Missions are as follows:

LEVEL 1

Basic Training +- Earn at least 1,000 points.
Defensive Training- Deploy at least 10 munzees.

September Resolutions Call for Less TV Time

If you’re reading this, your nose is clearly in a screen, but this month we’re challenging players to turn away from the one that many of us have mounted on our walls. You don’t have to set it on fire, but for September Resolutions, we are challenging players to watch less TV and spend more time exploring the real world!

*We do not accept liability for any burned television sets

Since the start of the year, our monthly Capture Streak badges have been centered around a year of personal improvement. Each month’s unique badge is dedicated to accomplishing another New Year’s Resolution. Like our Super Streak badges, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one Munzee* each day for the entire month. Each of the badges allows for the chance to work towards a different in order to bring about a year of positive growth and change!

Press Pause

Many of us lead hectic lives, and there is nothing wrong with unwinding on the couch at the end of a long day with your favorite television program. However, there is a difference between enjoying a show or two and having to continually confirm on Netflix that you are still watching. While you don’t have to give up television all together, there are benefits of limiting TV time.

Television has an influence on your worldview, and it is likely not an accurate one. Unless you’re only watching documentaries, it’s likely that you’re seeing a myriad of careers (from doctors to lawyers to police officers) inaccurately portrayed on the small screen, which subconsciously shapes how you view the world. In a larger sense, this sense of false reality submersion can create false expectations in life and lead to disillusionment with reality, adversely affecting interpersonal relationships along the way. The end result? Overall less satisfaction with your life.

It’s likely no surprise that television influences your spending habits, with the power of advertising becoming virtually unavoidable thanks to measures such as product placement and subliminal advertising. While advert advertising is easier to see, when messages are less obviously interspersed throughout programming, they can become harder to actively avoid. In addition, too much television drains your mental energy and impairs rational thinking.

And, of course, one of the main reasons why too much TV is bad for your health is because it robs us of precious time that we could be spending with real people in the real world. So grab the ones you love and head into the real world to discover what your surroundings have to offer. Of course if you happen to Munzee along the way, that’s just an added bonus!

Munzee on!

* In order to encourage active gameplay we will not count Social Munzees for these capture streaks. If you know you’ll be in an area without munzees, plan ahead!

Jump for Joystick Munzees! Triple the Fun!

We have a special announcement for MunzPak subscribers, as the July MunzPak will feature the brand new Joystick Munzees! This MunzPak exclusive will be available in some version in all three MunzPak subscriptions, which you can order in the Freeze Tag Online Store beginning on July 1 at 00:01 MHQ time. (Remember if you order a MunzPak before then, you will be ordering the June one!) Now let’s see why these brand new munzees have us jumping for joy…


Joystick Munzees

This new munzee type is based on throwback video game specials from over the years. Joystick Munzees come in both physical and virtual forms, though both forms work similarly and are worth the same point values. When you capture a Joystick Munzee, three of one retro game icon (either Runzee Rob, Leap Frog, or Munch-Man) will scatter to Greenies within 1500 feet. These munzees will stay on the map for 3 hours or when captured.

The point values for the Joystick Munzees are as follows:

Points 

  • Cap: 88
  • CapOn: 19
  • Deploy: 80

Virtual Joystick Munzees are not blastable. To access these munzees, turn on the Mini Games physical filter and the Others virtual filter. You can access the scatters under the Expiring Specials filter. Their proximity will be 150 feet from any other virtual Joystick if deploying a virtual, or 150 feet from any other physical Joystick if deploying a physical.


Retro Games

Capping a Joystick Munzee will cause three Runzee Rob, Leap Frog, or Munch-Man physical munzees to scatter to Greenies within 1500 feet. These retro games have an added layer of fun all of their own! Once the retro game icon is capped between 1 and 3 new virtuals will be deployed within 700 feet of the retro game icon. These virtuals will be different based on what game icon is capped.

You have to be within 150 ft to capture the various game virtuals, and these can only be seen by the person who capped the retro game icon, similar to Infrared Munzees. Retro game virtuals will disappear after 2 hours or when capped. You can learn more about the three retro games and their unique virtuals below!


Runzee Rob Munzee

When you cap a Runzee Rob, up to three (1-3 random) new virtual “Gold Coinz” will be deployed nearby, similar to an Air Mystery/Feather or Night Vision Goggles/Infrared Munzee. These Gold Coinz will only be visible to the player that capped the Runzee Rob and are available for 2 hours.

Points

  • Runzee Rob
    • Cap: 19-85 split with owner
    • CapOn: remainder of the 19-85 split
  • Gold Coin virtuals
    • Cap: 25 points (no CapOn)

Leap Frog

When you cap a Leap Frog, up to three (1-3 random) new virtual “Flyz” will be deployed similar to an Air Mystery/Feather or Night Vision Goggles/Infrared Munzee. These Flyz will only be visible to the player that capped the Leap Frog and are available for 2 hours.

Points

  • Leap Frog
    • Cap: 19-81 split with owner
    • CapOn: remainder of the 19-81 split
  • Fly virtuals
    • Cap: 29 points (no CapOn)

Munch-Man

When you cap a Munch-Man, up to three (1-3 random) new virtual “Ghostzees” will be deployed similar to an Air Mystery/Feather or Night Vision Goggles/Infrared Munzee. These Ghostzees will only be visible to the player that capped the Munch-Man and are available for 2 hours.

Points

  • Munch-Man
    • Cap: 19-80 split with owner (Pac-Man was released in 1980)
    • CapOn: remainder of the 19-80 split
  • Fly virtuals
    • Cap: 34 points (no CapOn)

Badges

A game within a game within a game! If these Joystick Munzees weren’t already exciting enough, there will also be badges! You can earn the following badge by deploying any Joystick Munzee:

Joystick 8500- Deploy 1 Joystick Munzee of any type.

There are also badges to earn for capturing each of the 3 retro games. The badges appear as follows:

Stay tuned to see if we expand this line of badges in the future, because though we might know the past, who knows what’s in store in time to come! Are you ready to get retro?! Be sure to subscribe to the July MunzPak to receive your Joystick Munzees for the chance to join in on the fun!

Munzee on!
