I have been playing Ingress since October 2014. All other “gamey” apps have since been deleted from the phone, which feels very good.

According to the in-game measuring “distance walked”, I have walked 692 kilometers since I started. Quite a few of those kilometres are probably registered from travelling by bus or car I guess, even though there is some speed limit over which travelled distance is not accounted for.

Here are the level requirements for levels 9 to 16:

Lvl AP Silver Gold Plat. Black
9 2.4M 4 1 - -
10 4M 5 2 - -
11 6M 6 4 - -
12 8.4M 7 6 - -
13 12M - 7 1 -
14 17M - - 2 -
15 24M - - 3 -
16 40M - - 4 2

Regarding the medals needed, level 14 and 15 are probably not too hard to reach. I have my doubts about ever reaching L16 though (at least if I don’t get the Guardian badge to platinum).
