As agents of the Resistance, we are commonly nicknamed as ‘Smurfs’ (because blue).
And a newbie Resistance agent is called a ‘Smurfling’!
Smurfling Lessons have very useful newbie tips (courtesy of some of our friends in Australia). Also available on their Telegram Channel.
You can also find some gameplay basics on the Ingress YouTube Channel.
