[pardon my English, I'm really tired today, but....]
I love this GPS powered Augmented Reality map sooo much, that I'm thinking about to ask for job for NianticLabs. It is sad, that so strong idea is not really backed up by strong management and PR team, which will be able to create string background story that will help to turn players to real Agents in surreal cyberpunk augmented reality.
More rules for better dynamic of the game could change approach of players a lot in better way: imagine, that portals and field will have some special function as something that is changing background story. In my case, I have legend, that Enlightenment side is trying to manipulate reality in the way, that they are  trying to prepare world for incomming of great power of elder unholy power of Lovecraft's eldest. That is that unknown alien power, they are talking about. Now  imagine, that agent of enlightenment side could not be killed inside of his green field because green is giving him/her immortality. It is logical, that Agents will try to cover their surrounding with as much fields as possible, because it could be good idea to be immoral, isn't it?
Same way, blue Agents, resistance, are just human beings, but inside their fields, they are immortal same way as green are, but same way. Blue field, similarly to green one is given immortality to its own agents, but same way it is helping them to communicate by telepathy and telepathically manipulate other human beings, mostly that kind, that is not connected and does not belong to some fraction. Both sides are able to do their own magic much more easy in their own fields and field of enemy is eating their energy much faster than neutral ground....
Much more complex background could be created on this fast sketched ideas, that field is giving me as Agent some special powers, that are not functional in hostile territory or on normal non-covered ground.
At Prague new, third fraction is slowly emerging, they are neutral and they are not catching portals after all resonators are broken and portal is ready to be linked. This fraction are pure resistance, because they must be originally connected to some of fractions to have scanner and to be able to manipulate this whole augmented layer of reality [aka meta-space or astral]. That fraction is neutral and therefore have no special powers inside of blue or green covered earth parts, but they have supernatural powers everywhere else. That is interesting to see, that 3rd fraction occurred too, and there should be some 3rd part of background story prepared.
What could be interesting idea behind competition of 2 respective 3 fractions could be system of levels, that is not really smart at the moment. Nothing is really happening, and there is basically nothing interesting behind idea of getting more and more AP, only thing that is interesting as far as I see it, is to collect as much levels as possible because you can collect some special badges, which I do like even in other games [eg. Foursquare gamification - e.g. you can have special badge whenever you are doing something, that have some specific patterns - e.g. collect 5 unique places of some specific type to get specific badge -  I do like e.g. collect 5 unique airports to get level of Frequent flyer badge etc.].
At the moment, longer you play, more powerful you are. But it could be interesting to have possibility to loose  AP eg when Agent is attacked and killed by portal. In case portals are able to damage and kill Agent, it could be connected with something like APs are lost, or complete level is lost, or Agent is killed completely and new profile must be created by its player.... or it could be interesting to destroy content of Agent's inventory, when Agent is attacked and killed by portal].
It could be little bit more interesting and balanced, when even old  players will feel danger, because in case they die, APs/Levels or artefact will be endangered. This logic could help newbie players to stand up against enemy side and they could be useful  from beginning....

I can imagine even more ideas, much more, question is, do somebody read this? Is there some feedback channel to NianticLabs?

Zaznam diskuze o #Ingerss  na Facebooku... asi jeste bude pokracovat:

<h2>Background story</h2>
Tomas Overdrive-Spider Petru MMchodem, ted jsem linkoval nejake obrazky a byla tam i hlaska o Ingress, takze tadyhle je muj pohled na vec, ktery s nikym zatim nesdilim, ale je pravda, ze jsem se taky zatim potkal jen s jednim modrym hracem...

Tomas Overdrive-Spider Petru Zastupci Prastarych, snazim se dovest na zemi YogShoggoth a dalsi z mocnych. Kreslim nesvate obrazce do rovin, kde jini smrtelnici ocitaji se jen ve straslivych nocnich murach, jen proto, abych osvobodil ldistvo od tmy zbytecne smrti, a dovedl jej k obeti, kterazto bude mit ceny... az bude spravna konstelace hvezd, a veskery odpor bude zlomen...

 Dosahnul jsem jiz, za nekolik malo dni, ctvrteho stupne zasvedceni, a prave nyni, pri ceste pro nezbytne artefakty me existence, tedy tabak a sirky, chystam se navstivit muj necenejsi zdroj energie, Zidovsky Hrbitov. MMchodem dnes jsem roznasel nesvatou geomancii na Josefove a zalozil jsem portaly u vsech Prazskych synagog, tak snad mi je schvali a snad tak umoznim vstup toho nejstarsicho ze starych, sameho Demiurga, do nasich rozmeru....

Tomas Overdrive-Spider Petru Taky jsem nad tim uvazoval, ze jako Rezistence je mi blizka, jenomze pak jsem si uvedomil, ze kdyz by o to slo, asi bych stal na strane moznosti spojit se s necim novym... asi jako kdyz v Bloodnetu treba byla frakce Pure Humanity, nebo tak neco... Ja tyhle fasisty a proti-potratove zpatecniky proste nemam rad... mmchodem v bloodnetu je super, ze jejich hlavni vrah, ktery ma zabijet kybernetizovane jedince, tak je tak moc modifikovany, ze uz ani jako clovek nemluvi, ani nemysli... hrala jsi nekdy Bloodnet? Jinak koukam, ze jsi tedy na modre strane... pouzivas k tomu legendu, nebo to beres ve smyslu smoulove a burty, tak jako hodne Prazskejch hracu? To me moc nebavi, protoze pak by bylo asi lepsi hrat geocache, me by se libilo, kdyz by tam toho pribehu bylo jeste vic, a chci k tomu zacit delat takovy jako pribeh ... neco jako kdyby si John Constantine odskocil do Bloodnetu. Z modrych jsem udelal neco jako highlandery, tedy jsou nesmrtelni a je mozne je zabit jen na danych mistech, a to na zelenych polych a portalech, takze kdyz rozsirim zelene co nejvic, jsem vic v bezpeci. Zelena sila ma privezt Lovecraftovske Prastare... coz mi pripadne jako dustojna protivaha nesmrtelnym pseudolidem...

Soňa Príborská Zní to zajímavě. Jo, ta legenda za tím mě baví, to rozhodně. Prvotní rozhodování bylo na základě oněch dvou vět při výběru frakce – buď se snažit pomoct emzákům dostat se k nám a možná nějak pomoct vylepšit lidstvo, a nebo zabránit zotročení lidstva. Tak tam ta volba byla jasná. A nelituju toho. Baví mě ty různé diskuze modrých a zelených, jako proč by bylo v zájmu nějaké vyšší síly vylepšovat lidstvo apod., k čemuž se přikláním. Fašisty a protipotratové zpátečníky v tom fakt nevidím. Vzhledem k tomu že jde o dvě frakce které proti sobě bojují v prostředí, které nějak ovlivňuje lidstvo, trochu mi to připomíná Noční hlídku, kterou jsem jeden čas hrozně žrala. Bloodnet jsem nehrála.

Tomas Overdrive-Spider Petru MMchodem Cthulhu, kteremu jakoze slouzim, je rozhodne zotroceni lidstva nonplusultra a presto v Lovecratovskych knihach vzdycky nekdo ma potrebu je vytahnout z nesvatych rozmeru... a to jsem v Ingress prave ja... takze ano, vlastne stojim na strane zotrocovatelu a zla, a delam to prave z pozice ideologickeho anarchysty, ktery tak moc da na svobodu za kazdou cenu, ze je ochoten pomoct necemu takovemu, protoze prave vidi ty, kdo tomu brani jako fasisty, kteri utlacuji svobodu volby
