Ingress New Players Guide(s).
When you’re new, this game can be much more confusing, and yet exciting. So I wrote some guides that you can read about how to play.
There’s also other things you can read.
Decoding Ingress Manual – They took a very thorough approach, but it didn’t help me too much starting, so I wrote the above guides.
Smurfling Lessons in Pictures – these are very well done. Ignore the Snark from the first pic and read up.
And then there’s the other stuff.
Should I Deploy A Link Amp ? – The exception is, on a portal you know the enemy will be taking very quickly.
