OT - Reddit CFB Risk Update 6/30: Let's Do This (4 days left)

Submitted by Michigan CFB R… on June 30th, 2018 at 10:17 AM

We had a really good night last night, both practically and as far as RNG is concerned.  The numbers had us expected to hold 24.53 territories at the end of the night and we ended up with 26, gaining two from the night before.  Importantly, we slightly widened our gap with Nebraska and all of this despite a typical Friday participation drop.

Michigan (26) is still in second place behind Florida (35) with Nebraska (15) making a final push to win. We urge you all to please remain active in these final few days. These are the last few days you have to make votes and to push towards a victory here.  Participation is crucial if we are to end the final week on an upswing.

Also, congratulations to BlueInSingapore for winning the MGoContest yesterday!

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

There’s an end in 4 days.

Right before they instituted the countdown, I had skipped a day or two because it really felt like there was no point—unliked normal Risk, which still takes forever, having lots of territory was more of a disadvantage than advantage to gaining further. Once they added the end-date, it really juiced the game some, though, and I’ve found it a lot more entertaining.

Sorry, this is off the topic of this thread, but today's the first time I've tried to create an MGoBoard topic since the redesign and I can't find a way to the old "Create Content" button.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I've tried logging out and clearing cache, but that doesn't seem to do it.
