Operation: #CrossFaction Field Art, a gigantic Christmas Goat
Location: Gävle / Sweden
Date: December 20, 2015
The idea of a cross faction field art project was formed a few months ago, and once a draft sketch was presented it was settled. What suits better as field art in Gävle than the iconic symbol of the town; a huge Christmas goat?
A few months of waiting followed, and when December was approaching we began to form a more detailed plan. It turned out that the most difficult obstacle to overcome was to find a date where both ENL and RES players were able to participate. After a few cancellations we finally managed to set a date on a very short notice.
Cross faction activities resulted in a 15 km² green-and-blue goat, covering the entire city center of Gävle. Twelve hours later the first attack against the field art goat was noticed, however that was expected. Christmas goats in Gävle rarely outlast Christmas Eve…
Thanks to everyone, it was great fun!
