OT - Reddit CFB Risk Update 6/25: The Home Stretch (9 Turns Left!)

Submitted by Michigan CFB R… on June 25th, 2018 at 11:20 AM

We had a solid day last night and buffered most of our midwestern presence. Unfortunately OSU stole akron from us and continues to be a thorn in our side.

Right now, Michigan is second place with 23 territories under Florida’s 26. With the help from our MGoBlog users we can push ourselves back into first place tonight!

There are only 9 turns left so we urge you all to continue to play and if you are new then please join in on this domination. It's fun, trust us. There's a very real chance that we can get the 5 members of our alliance into the top 5 by the time the game is over. So please continue to take orders!

The winner of our MgoContest yesterday (one random MVP who followed their website orders is selected to receive Mgoblog points) tonight was: a2stl. Congrats!

PS: Some of you may have heard rumors that Clemson flipped over to the bad guys. We want to ensure you that this was a false rumor and a coordinated effort from our alliance, so please do not attack Clemson owned territories unless specified by the website.


Announcement: Please don’t post your orders anywhere (mgoblog included). Other teams visit this blog in hopes of seeing what we will be doing, and it would be much better it if they were left in the dark. If you have a question about an assignment, try to ask it in general terms, instead of naming specific territories.


Steps To Play Every Day:

  1. Sign up for a reddit.com account if you don’t have one already
  2. Visit https://flair.redditcfb.com/ " go to “find by conference," click “FBS” then “Big 10” and finally “Michigan” to set yourself as a member of our team. Click “Update Flair” to set it.
  3. Visit https://michigancfbrisk.com/ and click “Get Order!”
  4. Click the blue chessboard beneath the logo that you’re meant to attack/defend to take you to the game.
  5. Scroll down, now, and on the right hand side of the screen, you will see the options that you can attack or defend. Click the school logo that you were assigned to.

Do not ever attack any territory that is owned by one of our allies unless specifically told to do so in your orders. Our allies are Clemson, Florida, Georgia Tech, and Texas. If you get an order to attack an ally owned territory then it means we are coordinating with them, so it is acceptable. Otherwise, do not attack allied territories or defend territories that allies border please!


Make sure you aren't flagged as a bot

One potential issue with the influx of new users we had is that some players may have been flagged as a bot and therefore their actions may not be counting. If you are flagged as a bot you will see the image below on vote.redditcfb.com

2. Wait at least one day for the text box to disappear. If it does disappear, you are all set.

5. Be patient as the mods of the game are busy and they are putting a lot of effort into running this thing.

So tired of all this recruiting news cluttering up the site...  Hello!  Hello!  Blah blah blah.  I need Risk updates. :)

Ohio State's only goal here is to prevent us from winning, so they're going to walk away feeling like they "won" unless we win the whole thing.  It's pretty obvious.  I'd rather we wipe them off the map and stick it in their face than win but that's just me.

Alliances are not encouraged or discouraged in Risk, which is actually one of the best things to be left out of the actual rules, if you will. I don't know if you've ever played a round before, but sometimes, you have to swallow your pride (if you're Florida, more than pride) and link up to defeat someone else, and I am sure most teams can find reasons to hate at least one member of the Red Alliance anyway.
