OPERATION EMERALD CITY
An impromptu meeting on the evening of Friday March 7 spawned the idea of creating a field that would cover the entire city of Corpus Christi. With the short notice, only two fields would be made, just enough to cover the city.
The operation would take advantage of an existing link from earlier in the week placed by agent @hawkwasp from South Padre Island to Kingsville. Two portals would then be chosen to the north & northeast that could cover the entire city. Upon closer examination it was determined that the initial plan, though fairly easy to execute on paper, in reality it would not work that way. A second plan then was developed with the goals of covering the city and maximizing the MUs to be liberated. The target time would be 9:00pm Saturday night.
After a late Saturday morning briefing, teams were selected and tasks assigned. Three main teams would be responsible for linking portals with additional support from local Resistance in clearing fields throughout the day. Shortly after 4pm the plan began to be executed when agents @mv22osprey, @tlrocketman,&@ALpocalypse began clearing links. Shortly after, agents @MrsNeenerCox, @lildude05&@Gerbilnut began the process of capturing portals. After a final key check, the two remote teams began the trip to the target portals, with @hawkwasp to Lamar and @azultequila&@TekDroid to Mathis. Along the way @hawkwasp identified a friendly blocking link and proceeded to Jarvis the portal. A second friendly blocking was identified and @MrsNeenerCox proceeded to use a zombie virus to clear it.
Once the fields within the city were up and ready, the two remote sites began the process of linking into the city. After a final check that all interior fields were linked, the final field was created using the portals of The Site of the Town of Lamar, Mathis Public Library and Edwin King Atwood Park which covered the entire city of Corpus Christi along with the towns of Robstown, Odem, Sinton, Taft, Portland, Gregory, Ingleside, Aransas Pass, Port Aransas, and Rockport.
A total of 16 fields were created during the operation with layers of up to six deep in one section of the city. Seven hundred fifty-six thousand eight hundred fifty (756,850) MUs were liberated by 8:47pm, 13 minutes before the next checkpoint.#AM04-GOLF-04
