 +===== Q: What is it All About? =====
 +**A:** I is about collecting and conquering, the actual ratio depends a bit on the player you are.
 +
 +For the beginning be sure, to collect as many **different** badges as you can (your own, ones, but also from system and potentially other players). Meanwhile share duplicates (own or foreign) by dropping them. Finer details later.
 +
 +===== Q: My Area is Empty. Shall I Start? =====
 +**A:** This is not Ingress where you need portals or PokemonGo where you need arenas or gyms. **You can just start!** ​
 +
 +Player to player interaction helps in the long run, but when you start playing, you get a **starter set of badges on the map** and afterward slowly (within days) **more things will appear in your surroundings**,​ for example [[rules:​regions|Regions]] and [[badge:​weekly|Weeklies]]. Just start in a place which you are likely to visit again, to take full advantage of the starter surroundings.
 +
 +===== Q: Is this starting slowly? =====
 +**A:** Well, yes, it is, at least when you start alone in a previously unplayed region.
 +
 +However it is more to do over time. If speed is your sole concern, be so to take every [[strategy:​skills|Production Speed Skill]] you can get!
 +
 +By the time of writing we are still in beta and we are currently thinking about some more help to speedup initial play, especially for the (still) isolated players. Please, bear with us.

-Despite having virtual unlimited capacity, you cannot keep all badges. Drop Badges, but be sure to **keep one badge of every type**, i.e. if you have 4 of your own L1 badges, drop 3 of them, keep the last one to maximize you [[rules:​inventory|Capacity]]. Some people put these "last ones" in their [[rules:​chest|Chest]],​ just to avoid accidentical ​drops.+Despite having virtual unlimited capacity, you cannot keep all badges.

-===== Q: Can My Phone Be in Developer Mode? =====+===== Q: Where is the iOS Version of Badge(r)s? ===== 
 +Unfortunately there is none! Beside the Android app, the website, the data maintenance,​ the server, the cloud services, playing and living we simply lack time and knowledge to build something like that.

 +If you want to do an #iOS app or know someone who wants to, please contact us ASAP!
