Operation Zombie
Mega-Cover #2 for connected Volatile cell AS12-FOXTROT-05 (Hyderabad) 
[The Day ENL India came out to fight back the week long dominance of the Resistance!]

It is truly amazing to see how one single Cell receives the support of the entire country to win those 80 points for the Resistance
Agents in Delhi and Bangalore showed tremendous dedication and made sure they contributed to Hyderabad’s win. 

Although, this one was a toughie. 
On Saturday, the day of the Final #Interitus   anomaly, 3 checkpoints were left to be secured. We were in the driving seat as far the Global and the Volatile cell MU scores were concerned.
However, being a weekend, we were expecting ENL to attempt a fight back. And so they did! But the scale at which they would fight back was half expected.

Early morning we began preparing teams for the first of the 3 CPs to make a Mega cover over Hyderabad. Agents were en route to their destination portals. 
Little did we know, we would be just a tad late in our movements and the ENL make their first move to put up 120+million MU fields in North India and some megafields in South India involving SriLanka (neither of them covering Hyderabad). We had to abort our Mega cover Op and postpone it for one of the remaining 2 CPs of the day.

Bangalore and Delhi agents, despite some disappointment, did not hesitate to come back for a second attempt later in the day. Such dedication and support is perhaps the only reason that keeps our agents gunning for a win every single time!
After all the travel and efforts, @SanpoKenjuu @DrKhami @anivar @Vampireragazza @Skanda @DoctorRV @CIDMoosa @FluffyMonster, we sincerely appreciate your willingness to come back later!

Seeing those fields, our agents were immediately on the move to take them down. Agents @ScorpioVenom, @crixus03, @namank008, @sudd were stationed at the anchor portals in Pune patiently waiting to take the fields down at the right time.
The North Indian fields were anchored in the city of Jaipur which has only a handful of agents counting both sides. We were extremely glad to find out that our L6 agent @ThunderHunt who was the only player available at the time was quick to respond and took upon the task to take down all the 4 layered fields with all his might and Inventory. He made it look effortless as we saw the fields going down one after the other.
One last resonator remained and he had used up every single burster to no avail. He called upon reinforcements, but no luck yet. Finally he was provided with an ADA passcode and we were good to go. @Thunderhunt we are extremely proud of you!

But then, ENL comes back with a second attack, this time covering our connected volatile cell of Hyderabad, fields worth 500+ million MU. This time they made the fields just a tad bit sooner and our agents wasted no time and set out to get those fields down. Agent @iRobinhood was the Hero of the day for us when he ran a kilometer towards the portals to avoid vehicular traffic on a busy Saturday evening and reached 5 mins before the checkpoint and started tearing down the fields in front of 5 ENL L8 agents. Agent @LorenzM and @fanna4u joined him a minute before the CP and the nerve wracking action showed them successfully taking down 300-400 million MU fields. Hyderabad cell maintained their lead.
@iRobinhood, @LorenzM you are brilliant, ‘nuff said!

Meanwhile, agent @FluffyMonster in Delhi received emergency calls to throw a blocker link from the North to stop any more ENL attempts at fielding. He was out with his family and yet agreed to help us without the slightest hesitation. Well Done Sir!! Thank you to your family as well for being patient with us! :-) 

Now then, coming back to our original Mega cover Op. After all the tiring trips, unbelievably so, agents yet again set out to finish what we started! 
@FluffyMonster set out on his 3rd visit to a really secluded portal in Greater Noida.
@SanpoKenjuu and @DoctorRV in Bangalore were ready to roll as well. @iRobinhood in Pune also went out to clear the blockers. We were set, on time, and we finished the anomaly in the connected Volatile cell of Hyderabad on a high, adding fields worth 190+ million MUs. Also @Gigatr0n and @GoldLi0n added to our surprise some huge fields in the west coast after taking down ENL fields there. We couldnt be happier! :D 
Special mentions:
@CIDMoosa, who in all the rush forgot to carry his wallet while going on a last minute trip to Bangalore Airport for taking out a blocker.
@anivar and @DrKhami for making a crucial key exchange happen for this very day!

Operation Mad Angles:

Hyderabad (AS12-FOXTROT-05) was declared as volatile cell. The regional cell agents have been fighting every Checkpoint leading the once Enlightened dominated cell by a heavy margin.

For the past three checkpoints they have geared up to field Hyderabad but little did they know that we had many many blocks planned.

Thanks to the key transfers over last few weeks and organisation of key count sheets, a quick OP plan was initiated between Chennai, Pune, Kolkata. 

Outcome: 5 layered fields liberating 0.52 BILLION Mind Units from Shapers influence

Outstanding efforts Agents:
Pune Team: (layers)
@namank008 @RockingStar @iRobinhood @jhoombarabar @LorenzM @fanna4u 

Chennai Team: (anchor and base preparation)
@KarSha @pulsecoder007 @Allflash @sayandhan

Kolkata Team: (anchor)
@barcalow @horowitzski

Thanks for clearing the Kolar blocks: @DoctorRV without which the BAF would not have been possible!

Can some one explain or rectify the error made while calculating the global scores ?
Its an utterly annoying series of events :/ #BlameNiko

The most recent being the calculation of CP#1 of the current septicycle that started 17th June.

838 odd million MU scored within India, however the global score continues to show a total of 382 Mill

Dominoes In Motion

Dominoes (or dominos) generally refers to the collective gaming pieces making up a domino set (sometimes called a deck or pack) or to the subcategory of tile games played with domino pieces. In the area of mathematical tilings and polyominoes, the word domino often refers to any rectangle formed from joining two congruent squares edge to edge. The traditional Sino-European domino set consists of 28 dominoes, colloquially nicknamed bones, cards, tiles, tickets, stones, or spinners. Each domino is a rectangular tile with a line dividing its face into two square ends. Each end is marked with a number of spots (also called pips, nips or dobs) or is blank. The backs of the dominoes in a set are indistinguishable, either blank or having some common design. A domino set is a generic gaming device, similar to playing cards or dice, in that a variety of games can be played with a set.

The earliest mention of dominoes is from Song Dynasty China, found in the text Former Events in Wulin. Dominoes first appeared in Italy during the 18th century, and although it is unknown how Chinese dominoes developed into the modern game, it is speculated that Italian missionaries in China may have brought the game to Europe.

Construction and composition of domino sets

European-style dominoes are traditionally made of ivory/bone, or a dark hardwood such as ebony, with contrasting black or white pips (inlaid or painted). Alternatively, domino sets have been made from many different natural materials: stone (e.g., marble, granite or soapstone); other hardwoods (e.g., ash, oak, redwood and cedar); metals (e.g., brass or pewter); ceramic clay, or even frosted glass or crystal. These sets have a more novel look, and the often heavier weight makes them feel more substantial, but such materials and the resulting products are usually much more expensive than polymer materials.

Modern commercial domino sets are usually made of synthetic materials, such as ABS or polystyrene plastics, or Bakelite and other phenolic resins; many sets approximate the look and feel of ivory while others use colored or even translucent plastics to achieve a more contemporary look. Modern sets also commonly use a different color for the dots of each different end value (one-spots might have black pips while two-spots might be green, three red, etc.) to facilitate finding matching ends. Occasionally, one may find a domino set made of card stock like that for playing cards. Such sets are lightweight, compact and inexpensive, but like cards are more susceptible to minor disturbances such as a sudden breeze.

The traditional set of dominoes contains one unique piece for each possible combination of two ends with zero to six spots, and is known as a double-six set because the highest-value piece has six pips on each end (the "double six"). The spots from one to six are generally arranged as they are on six-sided dice, but because there are also blank ends having no spots there are seven possible faces, allowing 28 unique pieces in a double-six set.

However, this is a relatively small number especially when playing with more than four people, so many domino sets are "extended" by introducing ends with greater numbers of spots, which increases the number of unique combinations of ends and thus of pieces. Each progressively larger set increases the maximum number of pips on an end by three, so the common extended sets are double-nine, double-twelve, double-fifteen and double-eighteen. Larger sets such as double-twenty-one can theoretically exist but are rarely seen in retail stores, as identifying the number of pips on each domino becomes difficult, and a double-twenty-one set would have 253 pieces, far more than is normally necessary for most domino games even with eight players.

Besides playing games, another use of dominoes is the domino show, which involves standing them on end in long lines so that when the first tile is toppled, it topples the second, which topples the third, etc., resulting in all of the tiles falling. By analogy, the phenomenon of small events causing similar events leading to eventual catastrophe is called the domino effect.

Arrangements of millions of tiles have been made that have taken many minutes, even hours to fall. For large and elaborate arrangements, special blockages (also known as firebreaks) are employed at regular distances to prevent a premature toppling from undoing more than a section of the dominoes while still being able to be removed without damage.

The phenomenon also has some theoretical relevance (amplifier, digital signal, information processing), and this amounts to the theoretical possibility of building domino computers. Dominoes are also commonly used as components in Rube Goldberg machines.

The Netherlands has hosted an annual domino toppling exhibition called Domino Day since 1986. The event held on 18 November 2005 knocked over 4 million dominoes by a team from Weijers Domino Productions. On Domino Day 2008 (14 November 2008), the Weijers Domino Productions team attempted to set 10 records:[15][16]

    Longest domino spiral (200 m)
    Highest domino climb (12 m)
    Smallest domino tile (7 mm)
    Largest domino tile (4.8 m)
    Longest domino wall (16 m)
    Largest domino structure (25,000 tiles)
    Fastest topple of 30 metres of domino tiles (4.21 sec, time by Churandy Martina: 3.81 sec)
    Largest number of domino tiles resting on a single domino (1002 tiles) for more than 1 hour
    Largest rectangular level domino field (1 million tiles)
    A new record of 4,345,027 tiles

This record attempt was held in the WTC Expo hall in Leeuwarden. The artist who toppled the first stone was the Finnish acrobat Salima Peippo.

At one time, Pressman Toys manufactured a product called Domino Rally that contained tiles and mechanical devices for setting up toppling exhibits.

In Berlin on 9 November 2009, giant dominoes were toppled in a 20th anniversary commemoration of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Former Polish president and Solidarity leader Lech Wałęsa set the toppling in motion.
