Operation: Urizen's Hammock - An Enlightened BAF over London and six other cities
Operation date: 15th of June, 2019
In the wake of a Resistance BAF over London (7th Apr, 2019), one ENL agent was incensed, declaring “that should not go unanswered!”; another ENL agent got out their pen and produced a drawing; a third ENL agent liked the drawing, and helped gather more agents.....
70 days later, a large swathe of England was once again a green and pleasant land.
31 layers covered seven cities (including London) and many, many more towns.
Fields stayed up over 2 CP | 15 fields made the first CP | 13 fields made the second CP.
31 layers averaging 7 million MU each, which, including re-throws, amounted to a total of approximately 287 million MU.
The largest individual field was 7448916 MU.
10 agents gained their onyx illuminator medal:
DanCWilliams1, Davesmate, drahcir101, LessThanJess, Lifson, moomin34, MzKiwiBling, puzzlingsquid, silverkali, WeevilKnievel
Stories from the field
In the South West:
A gallant agent executed critically timed clearance of Smurf fields and links, with active Resistance. The timing of their actions had to be precise to the second, outstanding work!
In the South:
An adaptable and skillful agent was rerouted at the last moment after the car of another agent had broken down, having had to drive miles out of his way to do a complicated sequential rapid takedown, with instructions being relayed to them on the fly.
In the East:
Having done his bit towards this operation, a dedicated agent was at home and in bed, when they answered the call to take down another last-minute tadpole blocker.
In the North East:
Meticulous agents cleared a wide, sparse area via car, covering long distances, despite being down a team down due to car failures.
In the West:
Densely linked blue areas were masterfully cleared by cooperating agents, timing their actions with precision.
In the North West:
Excellent teamwork and with help with agents from out of the area, ensured that the lane was clear. One of these agents had cycled 79.9km before returning home from their efforts!
With incredible patience and humour, an agent drove around in circles around Worcester’s one-way system several times in order to help clear paths for fielding, whilst also picking up the lead fielder to execute the fielding plan there.
This was all achieved by the following 90 agents:
Great job, though a knackering one! Just about recovered! Good work guys! 💖
Had a blast!
Awesome green fields!
Glad to be of help
Fantastic fun, that, although I swear my hair's got greyer.
'kupuguy' only has one 'p'.
was good watching this one go up on the night :-)
That's what "Just for Men" will hide my dear! ;)
I had great fun and was on such a buzz I didn't get to sleep until 330pm on saturday afternoon after smashing oxford lol
Well that certainly is a think of beauty.... Well done ENL!
Was great to put it up!
I had a blast 😀, thanks so much for letting me play a small part of this . Only just recovered from OppLag ( who knew that OppLag was a thing ?😜) Sat in McD’s in a Friday night / sat morning , surrounded by late night revellers was a hoot !! Awesome planning !! Awesome company !! Awesome food munchies in our car 😜 thanks everyone 😘
It was great fun to be involved with. Thank you for letting me join in and letting me get the chance to score Onyx Illuminator.
It was a late old night, but it was worth it. Despite rolling in at 4:50 in the morning, still I awoke to a glorious green blanket.
A massive well done to all involved and thank you to the mastermind and their insanity for pulling this off!
Greetings for all the team from Enlightened Portugal.
Great night, thanks for the Onyx badge, I've got quite a taste for McDonalds coffee now, it was great to get to know and spend time with some fellow agents and I look forward to the next one :)
This is so impressive, I have no idea how stuff this large gets put up with the amount of link clearance involved.
Well done to everyone involved! 🐸
What a great op, well done all!
@ClumsyNinja A lot of very hard work from a lot of dedicated people. Also a lot of planning.
I only had peripheral involvement, but I just looked back and see I was in the planning group for over 2 months and I don't know how much longer before that it had been going on.
There is one other agent who (as a smurf) cannot be on the list, but deserves a hat tip for dedication. @ValLeymil, Oxford based and without benefit of a car received an early morning call on his emergency encrypted line from Smurf HQ (or maybe they project a Smurf silhouette on the clouds?). He caught the first train from Oxford to Worcester and took the fields down shortly after the second CP at 8am.
Misguided he may be, but respect where respect is due.
The following agent IGNs were missed from the original sitrep above (that I'm unable to edit due to the policy of this forum):

Dont forget us annoying smurfs driving around at stupid o'clock taking down the inner layers before thinking "1am sod this got to be up for work in 6 hours".
Wrong colour but still impressive work
