OT - Reddit CFB Risk Update 5/29: The Red Army Approaches

Submitted by AmaizeingBlue on May 29th, 2018 at 12:03 PM

Last night we netted one territory. We managed to take back most of Michigan from Wisconsin, but gave up a little bit of ground to Nebraska. Our allies are dealing with Chaos and some rogue OSU territories in the south at the moment. We need to hold off Nebraska for the time being until our alliance can make a uniform push out west.

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/TcZBTcj. 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.

We again had another solid night and continue to basically take whatever we want.  Things look to get tougher from here on out as Nebraska is at our doorstep and Florida failed to strike a fatal blow to Chaos and now find themselves in dire straits.

 

 

 

We have also reclaimed undisputed position at the top of the leaderboard.

 

 

CAVEAT:  Pretty much all data on the leaderboard is meaningless for one reason or the other, so take the "standings" and star/player totals with a giant grain of salt.

We again had another solid night as we continue to basically take whatever we want.  Things should get more difficult from here, however, as we now share a border with Nebraska.  In fact, we share borders with four Red Alliance teams now (Nebraska, Ohio State, Wisconsin, and Virginia Tech).  Florida continues to deal with its Chaos problem, but there is hope as Chaos is now down to just a single territory.  If Florida can defeat Chaos and break out like we did a week ago, things look much different for the Allied Powers.

 

 

We have also reclaimed our spot at the top of the leaderboard as us and Nebraska are now tied.  Only 14 teams remain as USC (ntUSC) was elminated last night.

I'm an independent, country artist (somewhat local) and Central Michigan Alumni (Not everyone can afford UM).  My first music release is today and it's a song that Jimmy Buffett or Kenny Chesney would perform.  The best complement you can give me is to copy the links and share with your family, friends, and co-workers on Facebook, and have them keep sharing it.  Record labels don't show much love these days.  It's a good drankin' song!!!!  Have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day Weekend!!!!

Last night was a another great night for us as we continued our push into the midwest and back up into the motherland.  Somewhat unexpectedly, we were able to reclaim AA and drive Chaos from the region.  We are in a great spot now with our foothold in the northeast secure and flanked to the south by our ally Clemson.  Those buckeyes, meanwhile, fled away from us to the south like the true scoundrels they are.  Long story short, they scurred.

Submitted by MaizeMN on May 24th, 2018 at 8:16 AM
I'll be getting off work at noon today and starting the holiday weekend early. So, I thought we should get the festivities started with a bang. Also, curious what my fellow MGoBloggers have on tap (and grill) for the weekend. We're not traveling, but I do plan to put the grill through a serious workout. Margarita chicken breasts, peppercorn ribeyes and venison kabobs are on the menu, along with the traditional burgers, brats and dogs. What is everyone else up to? Feel free to share your plans, menus, libations and holiday traditions with the rest of us. And don't forget to bang! Most importantly, thanks and prayers for the brave men and women that gave their lives in service to our country. God bless and Go Blue.

Last night was a great night for us.  Including those bordered by allies, we are now up to 8(!) buffered territories impervious to attack this round.  We even somehow managed to take Columbus.  Meanwhile, OSU is doing... something.  Us and our allies have them reeling as they are down to a mere 3 territories.

Yesterday, we consolidated our hold on the NE, forcing OSU back into the Midwest, and gaining four crucial buffered territories that are completely immune from attack this round.  We also importantly gained Akron, which makes virtually all OSU territories vulnerable to attack from us and our allies.  Today we will continue to put the pressure on the Buckeyes and seek to put them one round closer to elimination.
