I really like the new site. Much improved and like that it's a responsive site that works well on different screen formats.

Having said that, I can't find how to create a new MgoBoard post on my phone. On desktop, you just click the 'Post to MgoBoard' button but I don't see that on mobile. Also can't get into my user profile on mobile but I saw someone else already created a post for that.

From some things I have read, the Mobile Apps will not be updated. 

This is due to the site being optimized for viewing on Mobile devices.  

Sounds good - but seeing a few quirks.

My biggest one is that I can't seem to find the Diaries on a mobile device.

Am I blind? 

Post below any other quirks you have found that might be helpful to pass on to the team and HUEL!

Looks like the threads are being ordered by recent post time, not when they were posted, which is a big departure from the previous iteration of the MGoBoard.

I think I preferred the old ordering, as now little spats and sidebar conversations will keep threads at the top of the board far too long, and fewer threads are now shown on the side of the front page so this could quickly bury new info that comes out (like Walker and Crawford transferring). 

Do you guys prefer it like this or the old way?

It's very #OnBrand to ask about brands on the new MGoBlog, but after my 10 year old TV died I'm in the market for an upgrade. This buying guide has lots of good baseline info - like a calculator that gives you TV size relative to viewing distance.

But, being a store, they're going to try to sell whatever gets them the most money. So, who's got a 4K TV? What do you like about it? Would you buy the same model again?

My wife's dog (he came before me) had to be euthanized this past Friday. He'd been diagnosed with a brain tumor recently but he fell off a little faster than what we expected, which I think made things worse. Anyway, I'm worried about our other, younger dog, as he's seemed pretty mopey and down the last few days. Has anyone had similar recent experience? Did you do anything in particular to help your other pets? On a related question, how long did you wait until you got another pet?

Yesterday was another decent day as we took almost everything we wanted.  OSU managed to snag Army, but we somehow pulled off a major upset on Wisconsin's home turf.  We have plenty of options this turn.  The Red Alliance has been pushed back a little bit and Chaos has nearly been evicted from the east.

 

 

Please click the link below to get your assignments for the day.

https://michigancfbrisk.com/

Please do not post about your assignments in the thread below. Trying to keep everything a little bit more secure after our mole issue.

 

Announcements:

The "Blue Alliance" has been re-dubbed the "Allied Forces" and now consists of Michigan, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Florida, and Texas.  If you aren't using the website to get orders, then please refrain from attacking any territories controlled by our allies.

 

If you are a relatively new reddit user, please check the game page to ensure that you are not being flagged as a bot. If you are flagged you will see a text box like the one below. If you are flagged as a bot, your turns will not assist our chances to win (although you can still accumulate turns so you can level up stars). If you see this box, then follow the hyperlink to fill out the survey, but ALSO message /u/bakonydraco directly on reddit to get the issue sorted out.

 

 

Instructions to Join:

 

To join all you need to do is go to reddit.com/r/cfb and create an account if you don't already have one. Next, set your flair to Michigan. You can do this by clicking "Select Flair" on the right side of the cfb subreddit. Finally, you can join and play the game at https://vote.redditcfb.com/cfbrisk.php

 

If you want to discuss the game in deeper detail and strategize with us, you can join our discord server found here: https://discord.gg/Gqqsczy. We usually announce plans of what we want to attack/defend in the evenings, but we discuss strategy all day. Be warned though, there will be a vetting process to join the discord as we have had some mole issues from OSU. Even if you don’t pass the vetting process, we can still provide less-secret instructions in the general chat so that you can still help us towards our goals until we can fully 100% trust you.

 

Go Blue!

 

Instructions as to how to play:

At the beginning of the game. Every team was assigned one single territory, and so every territory is now named after that team. When you go to select an action in the game, you'll see option such as: 

"Defend Buffalo", "Attack Penn State", "Attack Kent State".

This means that we border the location that was originally assigned to Penn State and Kent State. If you choose to attack Penn State, you will attempt to take that piece of land next round. Defend Buffalo, means that we currently own Buffalo's original homeland, and defending Buffalo means putting your stars towards keeping Buffalo from being taken.

After you submit what you're doing for the day, just sit back at wait! At Midnight EST all of the picks from all of the teams go in, and a random number generator selects a winner for each territory. Then it all happens again tomorrow.

Yesterday was a pretty neutral day on our end. We took Rutgers back from Ohio State but they somehow snatched Syracuse with a ~4% chance. The real action, however, is occuring on the south side of the map where Florida is finally starting to expand west after hopefully dealing with their chaos problem. Texas is trading punches with four separate teams of the Red Alliance and Alabama is down to their last territory. Tonight could be a huge night for our alliance.
