Control Fields

Create a Control Field

Link three portals together to form a triangular field, a “Control Field,” which captures the underlying population for your faction. Control regions also generate “Mind Units” which contribute to your team’s global score.  The larger the control region (and the more densely populated the region, based on census data), the more Mind Units.  If one control region fully encloses another control region, both regions get credit for all the mind units they enclose.

 

Gaining AP

After a control field has been generated, you will receive +1250 AP.  A quick way to gain a lot of AP is to find an area with lots of portals, build them all up to eight resonators, and link them all into triangles.
