Surprised not to see anyone speak up for Nightcap yet. Relatively new, with artisan cocktails.  Cocktail menu not as expansive as The Last Word, but decent.  I've had good experience there.

Be prepared to wait, if you get there during their busy time of night.  However, they allow you to get on the waitlist with a phone, and they'll text you when your table is ready.

No need for the quotes. Her moniker and legacy are likely undisputed in American culture.

I feel the same some days.  But I keep taking orders.

A couple nights ago, I think we had five territories where were favored by 52-77%, and we lost all five.  RNG is part of the reason the map looks so similar day to day.

06/14/2018 - 3:58pm More to the point, it's…

More to the point, it's bigger than simply focusing your firepower where the opponent is today.  They can abandon that territory, knowing you'll do so, and aim to win an adjacent territory.  As said above, it's difficult to eliminate an opponent, especially without ganging up, some favorable territory setup, and some favorable RNG luck.

06/14/2018 - 3:55pm All -- please try to limit…

All -- please try to limit discussion of orders in open forum.  Our adversaries read this discussion for clues.

Having said that, I feel your pain.

You can click on the territory shortly after midnight to see how many actual stars were assigned to the battle.  About 12:15, the results are available.  The map updates shortly thereafter.

There is...in the Discord site.  For example, last night, Ohio State had a 3% chance of winning WKU.

And they won it.

RNG giveth, RNG taketh.

Make quality comments, and you won't need to ask.  The karma will come.

Click update subreddit once, then update rating twice.  Clear cache, if that doesn't work.

Trust me, it's not a stretch if you simply remain active.  Say some nice things about other programs.  Say something funny.  Don't get in a flame war.  500 before you know it.  Two days.

But please don’t discuss specific assignments in open forum, if possible. Moles are REAL.

For anyone out there who wants to do more for the cause, jump on r/CFB and participate in the various discussions (in a meaningful way) to earn karma.  MGoPoints may mean nothing, but just 50 karma will earn you to two stars in that category.  Since 5 turns played will earn you two stars in another category, the median result (1/1/2/2/5) will be a promotion to two stars on the battlefield.

You may also need to clear your cache, if the above doesn't work.

Texas is NOT in a position to turn on its allies.  It's weak, has about 1/3 of our weighted star power (alone, to say nothing of UF), and OU/TAMU will never ally up with them.

It's okay to give in, friend.  Just two clicks per day: get assignment and vote.

06/06/2018 - 12:51pm This.

This.

Everyone has a late to fight in, now.  No one needs to be protected.  The Clemson snafu means little.  They have 10% of the weighted starz that we have.

06/06/2018 - 12:33pm It matters how many weighted…

It matters how many weighted stars go into battle.  1/2/3/4/5 stars are increasingly weighted in battle.  There is no weight for a one or two star; there is weight for 3/4/5 stars.  So you do count, but get your third star for some weight and then you can relax.

06/06/2018 - 9:54am Due to the nature of the RNG…

Due to the nature of the RNG, there's value in shooting for other areas.  We've been both lucky and unlucky in this regard.  That may explain your orders.

Basing a game on one roll of the RNG is admittedly stupid.

06/06/2018 - 9:53am Again, it wasn't a…

Again, it wasn't a coordinated attack by Clemson.  It was a one-star rogue in a territory that we didn't even defend (because we didn't need to).  Rogues gonna rogue.

Still visible on the mobile app.

We didn't defend Army, and a one-star rogue took it.  Big deal.  We have lots of territory still.  It wasn't a coordinated effort to turn on us.  If anything, it gives us a buffer and limits where OSU can attack us on the front.

06/01/2018 - 8:11pm CFBRisk

CFBRisk has replaced MGoBlog as my daily alternative to work. I’ve even stopped playing SongPop for it, and I have like 60 games waiting.

I did so well by resisting it for three weeks.

Death to the moley-mole.

06/01/2018 - 8:01pm See links in OP

They make it super easy. Click once, validate, vote. Daily.

We all profit.

06/01/2018 - 7:35pm Need to upvote in the topic thread

Not the user page.

06/01/2018 - 7:32pm You should have 3 stars by now

Just with regular comments on r/CFB.

06/01/2018 - 7:30pm You could help us

You could help us end it before then, you know.

Every body counts.

Just sayin.

06/01/2018 - 7:29pm Miniskirts, however

05/31/2018 - 6:15pm A gaggle of M users

...could use upvotes and comment support here:

I could certainly use it to get my third star!

05/31/2018 - 6:10pm I was told

Upvotes given in the user’s activity listing don’t count toward karma. Needs to be in the actually discussion.

05/30/2018 - 4:24pm What about

saying bad things about PSU? Do you think that will lose karma, too?

05/30/2018 - 12:33pm Maddening

I was also defending in the Battle of the BG.

Wisky had a 5% change of success going in.  And won.

In fairness, we did similar to them in two territories, including their home base.

05/30/2018 - 12:31pm A link would help

To your user page or the discussion.  I can't find either.

Then again, I'm just a 2-star.

05/29/2018 - 4:30pm OSU

OSU isn’t likely being eliminated anytime soon, and without a coordinated effort by otherwise preoccupied allies on several fronts. They seem to be executing a run-and-hide strategy, and looking to establish a safe territory behind friendly lines.

Hopefully UF can handle Chaos before they cut and run, but I’m not optimistic.

05/29/2018 - 3:43pm Why are people sharing their orders in this forum?

Loose lips sink ships, people!

Oh fuck. I’ve become one of them now. Dammit.

05/29/2018 - 3:41pm Red Scare

Neb, OSU, Wisky, Stanford.

AFAIK, not TAMU or OU.

05/28/2018 - 1:38pm And tomorrow

You can click on the territory of interest and see all the combatants involved in the battle.

Vetting post, as requested.

05/25/2018 - 1:29pm r/CFB noob: stupid question

How do I find/identify M users to upvote?

Also, updating flair was not as trivial as it should be. I was was apparently on team chaos for about three days until I cleared my cache.

EDIT: Is it just the label on the posting? Clearly, I'm not a redditor.

05/16/2018 - 9:49am Second deck!

That’s how you get Adam Eaton out.

04/02/2018 - 2:49pm Is anyone left?

Will they even be able to field a team next year?  Schilling, Tum-Tum, and tourney minutes-eater Ben Carter also graduate.

Yikes.

04/02/2018 - 11:24am Was gonna get free Little Squeezer's

But you've activated my superstition.  A sub it is.
