OT - Reddit CFB Risk Update 5/24 - Ann Arbor is Liberated

Submitted by Rad on May 24th, 2018 at 10:32 AM

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.

Announcements:

The "Blue Alliance" has been re-dubbed the "Allied Forces" and now consists of Michigan, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Florida, and Texas.  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.

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.

Yesterday we netted a gain of 1 territory. We won Kent State, Pittsburgh, and West Virginia while losing Umass and Temple. Temple was an expected loss as that was our agreement with Clemson. As a reminder please do not attack Clemson territories. We are working with them to eliminate OSU, so attacking Clemson is really like playing for the Buckeyes, and none of us want that right?

We had a good day! Yesterday we ended up winning 8 of 11 possible territories and have created ourselves a nice 3 territory buffer that we do not need to defend today. Meanwhile, OSU is down to their last territory in the northeast and have retreated all the way back to Pittsburgh. We are one more good day away from really clamping down on them.

 

For the past 11 days we have had a steady growth in active users. Last night OSU had a drop of 100 users that didn't participate. So we urge you all to continue to be active in this game. Your daily votes do help tremendously.

Yesterday was another frustrating day against the Buckeyes. We lost Umass, Syracuse, and Army despite being favored in all three locations. The last few days have consisted of swapping territories in the northeast with OSU. We need to continue to press forward until we recapture our new home and push the Buckeyes back. 

We urge you all to continue to participate in the game. Your daily votes do help tremendously. 

 

Please go to michigancfbrisk.com and click on "Get Order!" to get your instruction for the day!

Hey guys, just an announcement. Please don't attack Temple or any Clemson territories today. We have agreed to a non-agression pact with them today, so we can focus all of our efforts on OSU.

Below are a few messages about recent updates with the game and instructions to join and play if you are new.

 

The creators of the game recently increased the aggressiveness of their bot detection to prevent the use of bots/alternate accounts. If you have created a brand new reddit account to participate in this game, then we need you to check the game page to ensure you don't see the message in below. If you see this, you are being flagged as a bot and your moves are not counting. Please DM reddit.com/u/bakonydraco to get the situation sorted out.

 

 

So follow the instructions and contact the r/CFBRisk mods if that happens. Also, the CFBRisk mods have indicated that they may start marking accounts as bots if they aren't "users on R/CFB". So we ask that in order to keep yourself eligible that when you go to vote everyday: just take a look at the CFB subreddit and make a post or two. There should be always something on the front page Michigan-related that you can drop a quick take on.
