OT - Reddit CFB Risk Update 6/2: The Battle Down South

Submitted by AmaizeingBlue on June 2nd, 2018 at 2:31 PM

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.



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


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



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. 


Full instructions/explanations are available HERE


Here's today's map:

So we took northern Michigan, but lost Detroit and all the suburbs??? I guess that’s ok, but only because it’s boating season...

If Stanford didn't have those two territories in the midwest, it would have been the perfect time for Nebraska to turn on them and take them out.

At least there's the possibility that Alabama gets knocked out this round.

Not sure I get the advantage that Neb would gain by turning on someone in their alliance.  Being the strongest team in that alliance, it woud seem to be to Nebraska;s favor to keep that alliance going to knock out strong teams in the other alliance.  Then, since Nebraska is the strongest, they'd have a leg up when the in-fighting in their alliance begins.

Rats, I forgot to sign on yesterday! 

Thanks for having the Sunday assignments active before 10 am.  I defended Deep Springs college just as ordered!
