Anyone playing Ingress? I started a few days ago on the Enlightened faction. Quite fun.

So you have to leave the house to play it? Not the game for me then.

I probably would've joined the resistance, but my town is basically only blue so it'd be a bit boring. Once I get to max level I can wage war as I walk my kids to the playground.

Level 8 Enlightened, started playing a fair while ago (when the closest portal to me was 10km away), now I have a portal at home and two at work, and my home-town has around 20 portals.

Not played for a while, now, though.

Haha, Bjerven. That's what happened to me. On my first day I was walking around town hacking portals with my level 2 guy and I noticed a car following me, blowing all my portals up with level 8 stuff. I stopped and said hi... nice guy as it turns out. My town has about 100 portals, and in the last few days I've seen more side-streets and weird sculptures than I ever imagined existed. Quite cool. Thargor I think you can submit your own portals if you see a sign/historical structure/whatever:

You can't do it on iOS, though.

You can also check https://www.ingress.com/i ... ntel to scout for available portals to attack/capture/hack.

Yea the lower levels are rough. I have a couple of hills on the outskirts of town (use ingress.com/intel and look at Maribor, Slovenia) and stuff in the park where my kids play, because the center has been taken by the high levels. At level 5 I use up most of my stuff to take out one high level portal, so I have to wait until they decay some on their own. Take out the ones with fields if you can. Seems like you get the most experience from creating/destroying fields. You could also try submitting a new portal or two near your house/work.

Lvl 7 resistance here. It's a fun game, and was easy to lvl for me as my uni had around 30 portals on campus. But now some high lvl enlightened took over the entire area and filled it with lvl 8 resonators, towers and shields, so it's impossible to do anything without grouping up.

I've met quite a few interesting people through ingress. I know all of the local (18+) players, and a few international players. Last weekend I took a drive up a hill to take out a cross-country blocking link to enable a 220,000 MU field... was quite fun.

Edit: It's also quite possible to take down L8 portals... just stand directly on it and fire a few ultra strikes if you have them (to take down the mods). It's certainly expensive, though! You can also spam some high level resos from far enough away not to get hit to try to pop the mods off (works best if the portals are close).

I should add that Ingress just announced that on Nov 15th they're awarding some special badges (bronze badge for level 3+, silver for 9+) and making it "triple items/AP" for the next couple of weeks. Maybe starting on the 1st? The perfect time to level up.

You can submit your own portals, yes, it's why we have two level-8 portals at work, and I have a level-5 portal just within reach of home (local pub)! It's why I'm very rarely below 1,900 items unless I go on a smashing-spree!

Nice! Be warned it's hard to defend portals, especially at level 2. Just make as many links/fields as you can to get leveled up! There is probably a group in your area that can help.

There's only about 4 portals in my whole town...lol.

The other town where I work, there's about 8 portals I walk past in a morning so I hack them and boost the resonators up.

Going to try to get some more Portals added that are local to me, although I think there's a stalker already as there's a portal in my town that's owned by an Enlightened guy and he attacked a Portal in the town where I work yesterday

There's a good "How To Play Ingress" series on Youtube that I'll find the link for that helped me loads.
