OT - Reddit CFB Risk Update 5/19: The War Rages On

Submitted by AmaizeingBlue on May 19th, 2018 at 1:14 PM

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?



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




Please don't attack 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.


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 see this box, then follow the hyperlink to fill out the surve, 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.


Additionally, we have formed "The Blue Alliance" with Florida, Georgia Tech and Texas. If you would like to meme about this, go to: www.reddit.com/r/CFBRisk/


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. 


Full instructions/explanations are available HERE

Now, now....I think we should be patient. Even though he's long gone from the team, Taylor Martinez could still theoretically find a way to armpunt this into the hands of a waiting, oh, Oklahoma possibly. It could be another team, of course. Point being - it IS Nebraska and they aren't too shabby at finding a way to beat themselves.

I can see the complaint if it was pushing other content off the board too quickly, but even that wouldn't be a problem for a true MGoAddict because they are here all the time anyways and miss nothing.

I help Coach Beilein win the Infiniti Coach's Challenge every year they let him be in it you better believe I intend to fight this war until Michigan covers the entire board.

Increase karma by commenting on r/cfb. Most helpful is to reply to other UM flairs and hope they see it and posbang. If you can join the discord too there's some helpful folk on there as well. I joined just over a week ago and have over 500 karma. It's doable, and getting that 3rd star really helps out the team. As far as awards, unless you donate to r/cfb you'll probably never get any awards.

Can't join the discord this weekend so I'm just gonna be a rogue. I won't be a crappy one that attacks allies though. Should get my 3rd star tomorrow.
