If the game mods decide to nerf UM again next year, I'm ready to boycott.  We would have won, hands down, without being nerfed so hard.

No mention about Nebraska team-killing Stanford?  It's been a hot topic on the reddit boards today.

No real reason for that to happen.  Unlikely that any of the stronger red teams will be eliminated, so our goal should be to keep them as marginalized as possible.  Team effort, team win.

No edit feature on mobile site?  Meant to also say that as long as blue finishes both 1 and 2, that's pretty good.

Better to approach it as an alliance win.  There are only three teams that have a realistic shot at finishing 1st (us, UF, and Neb) and it won't matter until the last turn anyway.  Considering that the red alliance has been so dominant for the first 2/3 of the game, this is a very sweet position to have just now.

Tied for weakest?  They far outnumber both Stanford and Virginia Tech and have previously been of great help to the cause.  They are just in a bad spot right now due to a run of bad luck (sound familiar?) - they should bounce back soon enough.

This is my first time earnestly using the site since the changeover - not fully digging it yet, but that could change.

I access it almost entirely from mobile phone these days and the mobile version of the site does not show the board threads immediately.  I have to go to the mgoboard tab, select board, and scroll through the list to see what is there - which is a pain and doesn't let me easily move to another thread.  It works by choosing "load desktop site?, but I would prefer not having to change my browser settings just to come here.

06/03/2018 - 9:19pm We were facing almost the

We were facing almost the full brunt of three opposing teams: Neb, Wisc, and OSU, alone while Florida was holed up by chaos and our smaller allies were near death. We more than held our own, allowing Florida to break out and the smaller allies to regroup (mostly).

06/02/2018 - 3:56pm Why would you want it to end

Why would you want it to end so soon? It's just now June - we have almost three full months of off-season to go. That being said, there are some issues that would need to be addressed if/when the next game iteration is made.

This has been proposed by several people for a few days now.  Let's just say there is... resistance... to this idea by many of the people coordinating the larger efforts.

Mods watching for karma farming yet every team is doing it (OSU and Wisc are two of the most obvious).

OSU was able to get behind the frontlines by taking Kent State, so we need to drive them out. Otherwise, good night for us.

05/23/2018 - 1:24pm Nebraska is top dog in the

Nebraska is top dog in the Red menace - OSU is more of a junior partner. The real power in this game is the total number of users your team has and how well you can organize them. The number of territories controlled is rather trivial.

05/23/2018 - 1:21pm Time to get in the game now

Time to get in the game now if you haven't already. OSU is a wounded animal, but will be all the more desperate now - maximum effort is needed. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS BEING TOO LATE TO JOIN OR TOO WEAK TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. 1-star users still tip the scales and can even capture territories by themselves. Joining takes 5-10 minutes (one time only) and playing takes about 1-2 min per day - easy. OSU has been trash talking all game and I would love to force them out this early.

They were driven out of the south andcdevided to make a spirit journey to the California. It's pissing off the Nebraska team since they can't quite kill them off (think whack-a-mole).

It was a good night. The next moves will be interesting. Go Blue!

Also keep in mind that they get a 4x bonus for defending Columbus (as their home territory) but no bonus for defending anything else. Bowling Green, Ohio U, Toledo, Kent State, WVU, Pitt and Penn State are all vulnerable - in addition to Columbus itself. The game works by random number generator, so even 1 attacker can defeat a much larger force (happened to us a few times already - time for some payback).

Follow your instincts. Use the force. Do what feels good. Solve your problems with aggression. Etc, etc.

We now can directly strike 7 or 8 OSU territories, including almost everything they have in Ohio. Let's get some!

05/22/2018 - 5:43am Karma leveling is easy - just

Karma leveling is easy - just make comments and/or posts in r/cfb as you would here. You need 50 points for 2 star,500 for 3 and 5000 for 4 (a single well placed and funny/witty comment can get nearly 500 points on its own, so this is not hard). Just keep playing the game and you hit 4 stars by 20 days (2 after 5, 3 after 10). Ignore the awards and time on r/cfb + not much you can do about them (and don't need to anyway).

05/21/2018 - 6:39am Probably pales in comparison

Probably pales in comparison to the amount of time the average MGoBloger spends on this site per day, so it's not that much of a waste. The game will be over sometime in the next month or two anyway, most likely.

05/20/2018 - 5:27pm Just want to let new users

Just want to let new users know that it is very easy to upgrade from a 1 star to a 3 star in the course of 10 days of playing, and to a 4 star in the course of 20 days (spending only about 10min a day on r/cfb).

MI can be too cold, damp, dark and dreary for about half the year. Is that unpopular enough?

I hear you, Old, but 1) it's off-season, 2) this is direct way to compete with other schools in real time and 3) it takes maybe 5 minutes of the day to do (same as checking MGoBlog in the middle of the afternoon). And for people that used to play Risk back in the day, it's fun.

05/16/2018 - 3:48pm 3 star is not hard - 10 days

3 star is not hard - 10 days of playing can do it. Simplying clicking on 20 links (shown in the r/cfb game), getting 500 karma (few days of posts/comments), and playing for 10 turns (one per day) will get total ranking to 3 star from scratch. Four stars is 5000 karma and 20 turns, but I am about halfway there after only playing for 11 turns

The creators implied they would make chaos weaker as the team grows larger - otherwise it would dominate by sheer numbers alone.

05/11/2018 - 12:32pm From what I have seen, the

From what I have seen, the biggest influence that can be had on the star rating (outside of 2 minutes of link clicking and playing the game everyday) is reddit karma. Someone needs to make a Reddit thread where UM posters can upvote each other quickly and repeatedly. I suspect this is how Neb and UF have so many 2 and 3 star users.

Why are the number of users/stars that you show differ from the leaderboard? Where are you getting those stats?
