I started playing it. It's actually quite fun. Although, I got funny stares when I started running away from an enemy portal and nobody else knew why I was suddenly running.

Why were you running away from an enemy portal?

Also, which side did you end up choosing? :)

You can't avoid the damage, by running away :) And yay, another green player!

Yeah, that's the only issue with the game. High density of portals near city centres, but hardly any as you get further away. You should be able to submit new "portals" though, in your area. Parks and Statues are always a good option.

It was really big here about 6 months ago, but I've heard almost nothing about it recently. :\ I did have it on my phone and gave it a go for a while, but all the portals are in town about 2 miles away. :\

Drop me a query on IRC with a gmail address, if you've got an Android phone :)

As I said to Paul, you can submit new portals. Parks and Statues are usually good targets. We've been having fun here at work, building up the portal numbers in the area. Much easier now that it's basically a week turnaround on new portal submissions.
I'll update the links in the OP to include the New Portal Submission guidelines, in a sec.

Ah, right. ^^ Yeah, when I was doing it, it was taking a ridiculous amount of time to get new portals approved. :)

Yeah, originally you were waiting upwards of 2-3 months. Now it's closer to 1-2 weeks, which is nice :)
