    Some of our local smurfs are vile people. Some of the accusations that they come out with..

    One of our guys of spoofing (False)
    Another is a benefit fraud (He has a disability that prevents him from finding work easily and is often driven to ops/farms/etc by other members as Ingress is really his only way of socialising)
    Two more of our guys are dangerous drivers who don't value human life (I've been in vehicles with both of them, they're really not.)
    One is cheating on her partner (They're not together anymore, but nothing is happening between her and the supposed guy she's cheating with. Not that it's their business anyway)
    One has brought his kid up to be rude and foul-mouthed (I've met him during the anomalies - he's very well-mannered and hasn't uttered a single profanity in my presence)

    One of them also followed one of our guys (and his young child!) home (admitted it on open comms), whilst another told the other blues he was going to come in and 'spray all the frogs' (whilst at the time having a picture of himself holding a semi-automatic rifle) during a cross-faction meeting - I'm very glad I joined the side I did.

    Some of the local blues are normal, decent people. But there's a few that just.. Horrible, horrible people.

    Yep, same here. I can think of only once nice chap in our area who's on the 'wrong' team (and I've tried to enlighten him and get him to switch factions), the rest are unfortunately rather nasty pieces of work - one of whom is utterly obnoxious to me on comm regularly (so I keep him locked away, trapped under my green fields). Funnily enough I met up with a couple of Enlightened agents at lunchtime today and we were talking about the very same thing. I went to a L8 Farm in Newbury last week and there was outrage amongst the smurfs that 'I' was there - they want me to quit (but I won't). Oh well c'est la vie. It doesn't really bother me nor spoil my enjoyment of the game anyway, it just makes me laugh that I get them so hot under the collar lol. Game on!

    It's really a shame that some of them spoil the game for others. We used to have a cross-faction group on G+ and even semi-regular meets until things turned sour. It's terrible that some people feel the need to stoop to that level.

    Christ, one of our guys, his ex is on the Resistance and lives nearby, and they manage to keep out of each others hair (and it was a particularly bad breakup, so he says). So why can't the other guys just get on with it?

    Its human nature I guess, stick a different colour on another and call them your enemy and they will behave that way and feel perfectly justified in doing it. Perhaps that's the hidden danger of this kind of game, especially when some (a minority I hope) take it too far. As much as we deride the other side at the end of the day we are all just people and this is 'just a game', so why not just have some of fun, respect others and not take it all too seriously.

    Also I've noticed that the fella who's so nasty to me all the time only seems to be like that from behind the safety of his comms (or talking about me behind my back, even to my friends) but when I see him on the street he's full of (fake) smiles. I'm not nasty to him, I wish him no ill will, I smile back and say 'hello'. (But then I'm Enlightened aren't I!)

    @AlfaTech (Pi1grim in-game)... The reason that you get such abuse on the COMMS is because when you played as Kitalon you were a confirmed cheat (GPS-Spoofing), and you admitted it yourself. Since you have come back as Pi1grim you have been suspected of spoofing many time (a leopard doesn't change his spots), the latest example being on Saturday when you managed to destroy and recapture the central portal at Stonehenge at 10:27am, despite the entire area being closed to anybody other than the druids who were there to celebrate the Summer Solstice. Unless you somehow managed to sneak past the marshalls and the 300 police who were there to maintain the peace, you must have a real good story to tell about how you managed to achieve this miraculous feat.

    Don't go posting in such a high-and-mighty manner when you have in the past, and continue to ruin the enjoyment of the game for the people who actually play fair.

    No @CAM, AFAIK it's still Android-Only, but I haven't really kept up with Ingress, what with moving house and such.

    ROTFL X-D It's not so difficult to get in to Stonehenge when one of ur m8s is a security guard, I can legitimately get in when Joe Public go home anyway, and I know a few of the druids too ;-) Besides everyone had to be off-site by 11am and I was clearly there before that.

    Yeah I made a mistake once but have since repented, deleted my old account and play this game fairly now so there's no need to flame me on random forums across the Internet grumpysmurf. There ain't no spots on this Kit :-p lol

    Pixeljagd - c't Magazin (German)

    Apparently the iOS release is pretty darn imminent.
    They also used a shot of Operation Green Marble in that.. Awesome. I know some of the guys that were involved with that

    Yep, me too - my m8 was helping with a local (well UK) blocking field for the op.

    I wonder if the iOS brigade are going to be the heralds for the alleged 3rd faction.

    I seriously doubt it - If the Interitus/Red faction are only able to be iOS users, that means they're immediately going to be at a disadvantage because whilst there are also noob Smurfs and Frogs, there will be no experienced.. What're we calling the reds? Are they even going to stick with Red, given that Red/Green colour-blindness is the most common type?

    Anyway. No high-level reds vs lots of high-level blues and greens. That would be a terrible move on Google/NIA's part. I think they may roll out offers to swap factions in waves until the numbers are roughly even.
    I was rather hoping the 3rd faction would be an AI faction, like a virus, spreading down links and across fields. Maybe they could make portals at the ends of infected links stronger whilst they were spreading down the link, but eventually would take control of the portal once the 'infection' made it all of the way.. Maybe link your portal to an 'infected' one and it makes you able to link further or something, but the portal would be 'taken' in 3 days rather than decaying in 7?

    We'll have to wait and see.

    I think that is the article that popped up Reddit over the weekend saying it would be available by end of the day. Nothing yet!

    I have a feeling when it finally does come I am going to be disappointed and it will be iOS7+

    Used to do a lot of Geo-caching with one of my friends down in Cornwall so this sounds right up my street. Annoyingly we're both iPhone users though.
