I started Ingress on a Tuesday, 21st October 2014. The game has been around since beta since two years ago. I had no awareness of its existence.
Kun Rong had asked that I join him and thus, I did.
In a week, I managed to make enough APs to go from level 1 to level 6. My objective is to reach level 8 fast and then just play it casually.
Has the game been fun? Yes, it has in some ways, not groundbreaking but something well-executed.
