Ingress - Game guide and secrets

About #Ingress .
Ingress is an Augmented Reality Game (ARG) where you have to go to certain locations and hack portals. There are two factions in this game, the Enlightened and the Resistance. The story behind the game is that a +CERN scientific experiment created a cascade that released exotic matter (XM) around the world and portals have been formed in locations like statues,  museums and other public spaces. Both factions are trying to capture these portals and set up resonators to generate more energy. When three portals are linked together, a field will be created to protect the area between those portals from "Shapers".

Join the Enlightenment
Faction attempting to help the Shapers infiltrate Earth. Followers believe that the Shapers bring a powerful enlightenment that will lift humankind.

Join the Resistance
Faction defending the Earth from the Shaper ingression. They are seen by some as being fearful of change or progress, but the Resistance is firm in its belief that it is protecting humanity.

How to play
► Find portals nearby on this map (login required):
► Head to the located portal
► Once reached and within 50m of the portal, start hacking
► Hacking will give you items like keys, resonators, XMPs and more
► Deploy up to 8 resonators, add mods or link portals
► Move to the next portal and repeat

Create more portals
There is a way to create your own portals. 
► Turn on GPS on the camera app
► Take a picture with your camera app
► use the share option and share it with the NIA Super OP
► It will now send an email to the NIA Super OPs to review the picture.

If your picture meets the general criteria for portals it will be added to the game within 2-3 weeks.

Secret passcodes

When you come across a hostile portal, you can attack it with XMPs (bomb) and eventually hack it to take it over.

Special Tip
If you are looking for an invite you should follow +Brandon Badger. He is looking for creative pictures/artwork of the #Ingrass  Hashtag. If he likes your approach you might get an invite key.

+John Fanavans sure you can choose. Which faction depends on which side you want to support. I prefer the Enlightened :-)
Looking forward to playing this game. And then I am guessing when this game, or the next generation of its kind hits Google Glass. 
Added you to my a/r gaming circle still waiting for my activation code to arrive
Hey, I need An activation code? I had no idea. Extremely "green" here. Sorry.
+Ward Plunet I think you have to decide... Resistance of Enlightenment. I have to learn more about each faction.
I'm actually dying out here waiting for my code........ check out Brandon Badgers page for a possibility of getting a code sooner. +Brandon Badger this is a link to that possibility
I want an activation code very badly... I want to get in now. I send my request but still waiting. : (
@eduardo- yeah, pretty much mirrors it. 
What do you do to get an activation code? Do they just process me when I download the app and enter my email (already done) or do I do anything else (ask for it in review or what?)?
seems cool, really cool, kinda has a AC3 (Assasins Creed 3) sound to it, where they are talking about working with each other, or fighting themselves
For all those wondering how to get an invite 1 way is to read my above post
excuse me you spelled your name wrong
I remember a game back in the 90s where you would get phone calls at random times. I can't remember what it was called. But it was supposed to be one of those immersive experiences that would get you deep into the game.
I will join the Enlightenment, everyone and their mother seems to be in the resistance.
Is anyone willing to share an invite? I'm ready to play!
Yeah, I'd LOVE to play #ingress but I can't. Why? Because I'm an Australian. Where's the global community? How hard is it to add support for your biggest international ally?

America isn't the only country in the world. Yes. I'm a little pissed about this. It's bloody stupid. I tried to install the app from the Play store in preparation for the invite. The message recieved: This item cannot be installed in your devices country.

I signed up today .. hope I get an invite, this looks fantastic!
This looks amazing! I signed up for an invite, hope I get one.

Rachel and Rob want to know:  are there any portals in Cameron Park (CA)?  Did the Google street view camera catch any last year???

I just know they have all that wide spectrum stuff on those cameras, so they can catch non-visible E-M and neutrinos, bosons and stuff!
+Patrick O'Shea Australia is the U.S biggest ally? guys are even more up your own arses than what I thought

Sounds like a cool game. Not getting involved, though. Lost too much time playing Travian a few years ago. :-)
And this is an official Google app? Fucking A!

The game Jason Schultz was referring to is MAJESTIC one of the first modern ARGs. I remember being woken up at 2 am by my phone ringing to get an obscene caller threatening to kill me. Pretty thrilling game at first.

Can't wait to play. Joining the resistance. Invite please.
I live in too small of a rural town to play... We have no free public wifi spots either.. other than the 2 at fast food places. But no actual museums for 75+ miles...
+Moritz Tolxdorff  If I'm in the "Enlightenment" team, wouldn't I be supporting "Shapers"? If so, why would I want to make control field which is supposed to block Shapers?
Hi please send me an ivitation code..
Send me the code or invite me
Holy smokes - this game might get me in shape and off my butt.. so i guess its not really a game it...
With the number of eyeballs thanks to this post, I'd be incredibly surprised if it didn't, +Moritz Tolxdorff.  Which reminds me... I hope you've chosen the right side. :)
If anybody has extra codes, I'd love to join in. This sounds great.
Oh, soo I guess that they didn't accepted my portal. I send to they for three weeks.
