OT - Reddit CFB Risk Update 6/18: Only 16 Turns Remain

Submitted by AmaizeingBlue on June 18th, 2018 at 2:20 AM

Today we are up to 22 territories total and find ourselves in second place behind our ally, Florida, who has 23 territories. Nebraska is in third place with 18 territories with Georgia Tech on their tails with 16 territories. Unfortunately, we did lose a little bit of ground in the northeast. We had planned on leaving those territories for Clemson to solely attack because of the precarious position they were in, but they had some poor luck for the third night in a row and find themselves in a similar spot today. We have some plans moving forward with Clemson to help them out.

Hey Mates (nod to Xtra Melanin) I'm off to Lake Michigan for a one day/night getaway and wondering if some of the long time dads are still among us? Xm, Mad Hatter, Monocle Smile, even Setion 8.1. Also thanks to the dads that run the site. I'm picturing little Denard Cook in his little hockey sweater, young Mr. Fisher who I played with at viewing party, and Ace's dad who shared Hollway field with me on a PiHi lacrosse senior night. Congrats to all the dad's .

Things are getting crazier at msu. In the wake of Engler's email stating that he believed Rachel Denhollander (the first Nassar victim to come forward publicly) was doing this all for kickbacks from her attorney and publicity (https://www.cbsnews.com/news/michigan-state-university-john-engler-larry-nassar-victim-rachael-denhollander/), he is now being called upon to resign by state lawmakers and msu BOT members.

Yesterday we dropped one territory overall. This isn't the end of the world as our attacks were more concentrated in that we wanted to make sure we won key positions rather than winning relatively inconsequential territories. The biggest result from this strategy is that we finally broke into Toledo and we can now reach every single territory in the state of Michigan besides CMU. We are also facing a bit of a front with OSU and Alabama.

Yesterday we beat the our previous record of active users! We clocked in at 1343 unique players in last night's round. The second most active team is Florida with 633 unique players. Please keep up the participation everyone! There was also a minor game update. The mods locked people's /r/cfb karma meaning that you cannot rank up by acquiring karma (upvotes) on /r/cfb. So now all you have to do everyday is visit our orders website and make your action. That's 2 minutes tops per day.
