After we completed Operation Muamba (https://plus.google.com/+Ingress/posts/a9ECqRa7KvK
said they couldn't wait to see what we do next.
Fifa World Cup is taking place in Brazil right now and as it is nearing its end we decided to cover a state capital for each nation still playing (Argentina, Brazil, Germany and Netherlands), that is our way to congratulate their great work so far. Last week we had mixed headlines over here, while it is definitely good that Brazil advanced to the semi-finals, star player Neymar is injured and will not play the rest of the competition so we decided to include another state capital for him. We hope he recovers quickly. Força Neymar.
National scale Operation Blue World Cup is the result of cooperation from five states. Agents from Minas Gerais, Paraná, Rio de Janeiro, Santa Catarina and São Paulo had to coordinate in order to make this happen.
Northern part covered an area of 445,404 square kilometers seven times over blanketing three state capitals (Belo Horizonte, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo) while southern part spread over 214,325 square kilometers and enclosed two state capitals (Curitiba and Florianópolis) under four layers of control fields.
Total MU count for the operation was 342,230,260
Highest MU single field 44,869,896
Longest link 1465 km
We believe this to be the biggest op ever in Brazil so far, but rest assured next time we will go bigger. If only +Ingress would gift us a few VR Link amps! :) one can dream right?
This would not have been possible without enormous effort and commitment from so many people it is hard to believe we succeed. I can't thank you guys enough, it was an honor working with you all. Special thanks to agents @rzh and @Raf01 who drove over 1500 km to get us keys, you guys rock. Also thanks to all the blocking link killers and intel operators, you are awesome.
