Ingress: Tactics—A Question of Cooperation
- Talk to other agents – there’s a faction tab in your Comms panel. You can use that to communicate to just your own side. If you’ve got time to spare, you can always check to see if there’s anything you can do to help others in the area you’re in. Or you can just lurk.
- Play like you’re on a team. If you come across a portal deployed by another team member, don’t just use it to link out from, buff it up by upgrading its resonators, or filling empty resonator slots. Add some useful mods to it. Recharge it, if it needs it. It’s one way of acknowledging that you are building on someone else’s work, and also a way of letting another agent know that they, too, are not alone.
- Above all, remember that your team is made up of people, and that people aren’t so good with strangers, even if they’re meant to be on the same side. Try to get to know other team members first by attending some Ingress events. You don’t need to be able to get to an Anomaly, or an NL-1331 Meetup, you can go to a First Saturday, or see if there is a local Hang-Out for your team that you can join on-line. At least that way you can chat with other agents, and you might make some new friends you can meet up with. Just because you start out as strangers doesn't mean you have to stay that way.
