After action report for Indigo² (Codename Blue66): We closed the Vield

It all started, when +Martin P.A. was on holidays in Greece. He opened his scanner, saw the distance to his home portal and wrote to +Viktor Steixner  "I'll farm some keys here to make a huge link, when I'm back home". A few hours later Viktor wrote back "Forget the link, we make a field with max distance of rare linkamp for every link". The idea behind operation Indigo was born.
A few month's, hundreds of hangouts, tons of documents, communities and a few portal submissions later, we attempted to establish the field for real (in november 2013). Unfortunately we failed at that time because of a leak and it stayed imaginary. From this moment it was known as the biggest Vield in Ingress history. See https://plus.google.com/+Micha%C5%82Tkacz/posts/9cZtPTamvHr and the related posts at that time.

We decided to push harder for a second attempt and organised additional key transfers through the whole europe to get the newly farmed keys from Germany to Ukraine and also the other way back.

On 6th of July 2014 the epic successor i² (codename Blue66) got real (pun intended)! We attempted a second try with over 200 highly motivated agents and saved over 840 million MUs

Operation Blue66 was a big success. The Resistance established the biggest field ever created using only rare linkamps. Twelve whole countries were fully covered. For the resistance!
