You're level 2 already? :bow:

I'm hoping to get some more done tonight and see if I can get to level 2 :)

I'll come clean. I play Ingress. And by "play" I mean, I don't know what I'm doing, but every once in a while I'll start the app and see if I can do a thing.

And I'm Enlightened.

There are a group of people here at the office who know how to Ingress. I think they've covered several square miles around the office in green.

I am 13 AP's from level 3. I was sooo tempted to hack a hostile portal in a drive-by manner as I was driving home to push me over.

Until my portal was shamelessly stolen attacked I had no hostile portals near me, so I hadn't realised until yesterday just how much AP's you get for hacking one. Sure, you also lose blue glowy life points, but you get them back just by hanging our around a portal, or by hacking a friendly one, or from those mystery boxes you get.

I also made a lot of points by claiming grey portals for the team and putting down all the resonators I could. And then linking them.

I'm 3/4 of the way to Level 5 -- completed a large mission on my lunch break today.

Also, I'll let Capt. Mal explain why I'm part of the resistance: "Sure as I know anything, I know this - [the 'Enlightened'] will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, ten? They'll swing back to the belief that they can make people... better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin'. I aim to misbehave."

I earned level 5 in a cemetery in Roswell. It was cold, dark and wet and yes, more than once I wondered what the hell is wrong with me.

That was pretty great, but of course by focusing on the series and ignoring the movie, they conveniently sidled past the 30 million deaths on Miranda--deaths caused by XM, delivered by Shapers like yourself!

This game is slowwww when you live in the country. I went into Boston (UK, you name thieves!) the other day and got loads of AP. Partly because the whole area is Smurfville central, so loads of enemy portals to hack.

There was an enemy portal with a L8 resonator that looked to be on about... 10% maybe? Is there a way to tell what % it's at? Anyway, I unloaded all my L2 bursters and most my L1 bursters on it and they did squat :lol: moved it down a tiny bit maybe. It was fun at least :giggle:

So today I was back in town and hacked all the portals around me again, about 10 of them. Then went back and blasted that resonator again, this time I destroyed it! :w00t:

Which basically did jack squat and only gave me 75AP :sadcheer:

But I still felt like I accomplished something :D By the time I got home I could see updates saying someone had recharged the portal and deployed a L7 resonator to replace the one I destroyed. Oh well.

I think you only get 75 AP per resonator you destroy, but capturing the portal yourself wins you 500. Plus 125 per resonator and 250 for deploying the 8th one. If they take it back 15 minutes later, so what, you still got the points. :D

I didn't get any AP for it, but oh what a great feeling to use the ADA Refractor on a key Enlightenment hub. Broke 7 links and 4 control fields, converted 8 resonators and 2 mods to blue all in one stroke. Beautiful!

Ha, I have used it for just less than a week (and 6 of those 7 days were work days) and I have walked 26 km with the app on. But today I only had to stop once for a breather going up the stairs on the steep hill, last time it was twice and thought I was dying.
