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.
Yes, everyone wants a '64 Impala, but more importantly, what about you car do you wish was just a bit different? Fewer miles and a lower payment are easy, what's the one, nagging thing that while it's not a deal breaker, you wish you had it. Most BRZ/FRS/86 owners say a few more HP would be awesome, and for most coupes, every Mustang GT owner will tell you per 'Cube you also coulda had a V8.
What's your own-car-improvement wish?
After we were lucky enough to have Seth post the game on the front page we saw a massive jump in users. We saw about 400 new players join the game and that pushed us well over the 1000 active player mark. Now we nearly double the next highest team in active player participation. To further put this in perspective, the 400 new players that we gained yesterday would be the fourth largest army in the game.
I can't comment on the cover page article (can anyone?), but I finally caved, created a reddit account and took my marching orders.
Anything else I should be doing to try and be more helpful?
Anyone have read some good book recommendations? I've never really strayed away from fiction but I am going to start trying some non-fiction this summer. What was the last book you read?
My last few reads:
- The In-Between World of Vikram Lall by MG Vassanji (highly recommend)
- East of Eden by Steinbeck
- The Dispossessed by Ursula Le Guin
- The Broken Earth trilogy by NK Jemisin
Thanks to the advice of fellow mgobloggers, I'm currently wrapping up the projects for EECS 280 that I've been doing on my own. I was wondering if it would be nice for me to read C++ Primer and CLRS over the summer, or do something else before attending UM this fall.
Last night was a pretty good night for us as we completed our re-consolidation of the northeast. Granted, this is a similar postion to what he have been in before butt there is one huge difference: the alliance as a whole is in a much better place. Resurgent Texas and Florida squads are in solid position to our south and are driving westward. We ourselves are back up to a total of 9 buffered territories.

Last night I believe we only netted one territory total, but overall it was a good night for both us and our allies. Ohio State lost their safe territories behind Nebraska's lines and now only have 5 territories total, where 4 of them are surrounded by Michigan, Georgia Tech, and Clemson. Florida has been making a hard push out west and is now in position to mess with Nebraska's defenses much like we were a few days ago. Alabama and Chaos are also in precarious positions surrounded by our allies.
This is it - our first Friday POSbang on the new system. Let the banging flow!
A few years ago the board was extremely helpful when I was moving to CA (several members suggested my wife and I move to Claremont; we did and loved our time there). So I thought reaching out again might pay dividends.
Now we're considering moving to Denver. I'd most likely be working South of the city near the DTC. So I have some specific questions for the board:
