    Howdy! Am an over the road truck driver and read about this game. I like the idea of a location based game like this. Been playing TrailHit and have enjoyed finding those boxes when I'm parked at truck stops. This game looks very interesting and I'd love to get an invite to play it!

    Get plenty of portals submitted. They take a few weeks to kick in and you may find leveling an issue until they do....unless you burn some fuel!

    x2, got one last friend that needs one, I'm actually NOT going to recommend a faction either. We could use agents on either side.

    Hmmm I have two invite codes because when I heard they were up to the H's and my GMail began with a C, I went back with an email that begins with an R and re-requested.

    As I'm only running Android on my laptop/car-pc, and don't have an Android phone quite yet, I don't need the second invite code..

    But has anyone given away a code with zero problems? Seems odd to give away something tied to an email account?

    Just got my invite and joined resistance, but I don't think ill be doing any walking around in this 13 degree weather. Driving while having this app open isn't considered cheating, right? Any tips anyone wants to give me in general about this app?

    I've had 5 invites so far, 3 of them to the same email address. Before peeps start begging, all the spare ones have already been given away.

    It's a fun game once you get going. I had a 3 week wait before any portals appeared in my town, & I only have pedal power.

    It takes me about 4 hours to get round all my local portals, & I'm lucky enough to have 1 on my front door. I suppose that's what you get for living in 1 of the oldest buildings in the country (built 1089 <-- correct date, not a typo, but it's still only the 2nd oldest building in town :D )

    Our local Enlightened gave up for a while because they were getting their arses kicked, even though they were higher level than us. We had to let everything decay, but they have finally started playing again. Last night they turned the town green, so today I plan on turning it blue again & hopefully hit lvl 6 in the process.

    My phone only gets 48 mins on it's own battery with the Ingress app on, need to leave it on to get XM. But thankfully I have an Anker Astro III 10k mAh external battery, originally bought for festivals, but proving to be very useful for Ingress. Using this I can easily go all day.

    If anyone has a spare invite, I'd like one. Please. I'll play for the enlightened since it seems they're fewer of them.

    Been trying to play this game recently now that I have an Android phone, but the weather hasn't been the best for walking around town. I do have a question though, when your XM fills up, you're unable to pick up anymore, correct? So, what do you use that XM for? There aren't any portals in my area, so I really don't have a whole lot to go off of here.

    There are areas near me that are of significant historical value, and I noticed on one spot there have to be a hundred portals all linked together within maybe a few hundred yards of each other. Turns out they are all at the Air Force Museum, which is about a half mile north of me. Head to museums and you'll hit the jackpot, unless someone else has beaten you to it.


    EDIT: Oh, I'm Sylon on there, Resistance.

    XM is your energy, it is used charging portals and you have to have enough XM to attack. You will lose XM attacking enemy portals if you get "hit" when doing so.

    Start suggesting portals in your area. Enable geo tagging in your camera, take the picture and click share, you should see Niantic Operations as a choice, select that and submit.

    Word was just given recently, another 18 months of beta! I think the game may die before it gets a full release on that time frame.

    They have also mentioned higher levels, which in my opinion would make the game way too frustrating for the new players coming in. They have also promised no reset when it goes live which means you will be coming in against a whole army of top level players.

    Got the beta. Love the game but keep getting. There are no towers in your area. Or whatever. Sad face
