OT - Reddit CFBRisk update 5/8/2018

Submitted by Chuck Norris on May 8th, 2018 at 5:01 PM

Thanks everyone for participating in the Reddit CFB Risk game over the past couple of days. We have taken big steps forward over the past couple days, but still need more help to achieve our goals. Right now, we have 6 territories. We need your help to continue to defend our territories and attack any neighboring territories! We need continued participation and enthusiasm to win this thing! If you have signed up already, keep playing!


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 and Georgia Tech. 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.

Yesterday our territories were essentially split into two fronts. We are caught in a brawl with Ohio State in Michigan and ohio and also have a few territories a little further east that are on an island. 

Any help defending or attacking surrounding areas tonight is essential! Tonight's turn is incredibly important to setup for the rest of the week. If you have already joined, then please make sure to select an action tonight. It only takes 30 seconds.

Also, the more people that join the discord server, the better! The more we can coordinate our attacks, the better chance we have of crushing the competition.

Just remember, nobody ever won a war by dying for their university. They won it by making the other poor, dumb bastard die for their university.
