Walker may still rise....it just won't be on our team.

I think they've hosted in Las Vegas for awhile now.

I don't think it's a problem because most of these kids aren't guaranteed a roster spot, so they are focused on keeping their head down and working hard. If you aren't mature enough to resist Vegas when your livelihood in on the line, you're probably not mature enough to make it in the NBA.

To be clear, I don't think partying is "wrong," but you need an incredible work ethic to make it in the league as a borderline prospect.

It's the nature of how the game is set up. If you are a team with decent participation like OSU, you are almost impossible to knock out and can get a good bit of territory with some decent RNG. Michigan was down to 3 territories at one point.

OSU probably should be a contender, but they don't strategize nearly as well as us, Florida, and Nebraska.

It's the team of anybody whose CFB team isn't Division-I and, more importantly, any team that has been eliminated. Chaos' starting territory was Alaska.

Also, they have a random multiplier each day, so they truly are "chaotic."

A good night of RNG in eastern Ohio / western Pennsylvania and we can win this thing.

Why do we care that he's a former QB? Except for the occasional Wildcat, he's not going to be tossing the ball.

Notre Dame Law was the only non-top 20 law school I was waitlisted at because I didn't do the optional "Why Notre Dame?" essay. I looked up South Bend and couldn't find anything nice to say about it....

This was before I was a Wolverine fan.

This is the first commit that I'm not all that excited about. Is he all that fast? I just don't see what's special about him....

Somebody explain to me why he's a good pick up, cause I'd love to be excited.

I'm not trying at all. I don't know Bluey. I'm just giving my take.

To follow up on this....

When I told my best friend that Turner had committed, he said it was "meaningless" because there's no guarantee that Turner will sign with us.

My friend is not a troll. He hates disappointment and therefore is hyper skeptical until success is guaranteed. However, if he said that on here, everybody would say that he is a troll.

06/25/2018 - 3:52pm I'd classify that as unduly…

I'd classify that as unduly pessimistic.

A troll's main concern is provoking others, rather than offering their genuine takes. Seems like Bluey is offering his genuine opinions....they just happen to be unpopular and very bearish.

Also, trolls usually contradict themselves or try to be funny. I don't see Bluey doing either.

06/25/2018 - 1:42pm This is why I know you're…

This is why I know you're not a troll. Unduly pessimistic? Perhaps. A troll? Nah.

06/25/2018 - 1:13pm I feel like Paye and Uche…

I feel like Paye and Uche don't belong on that list yet. They are hype, not results.

Sean McKeon is definitely the real deal, but his reason for a low ranking was very understandable -- Massachusetts kid with very little reel.

I freaked when I saw the old map...

In part. A lot of Chaos players stopped playing (because their team is eliminated). Also, players can choose to play for the team that occupies their home territory (even when they are eliminated), so their Chaos participation varies even if they are still active post-elimination.

One is Seldon. He just tweeted that he has a big announcement at 2:30 PM.

GT is probably in for a world of hurt tomorrow with that OSU territory right in the middle of their footprint.

Looks like he'd be a good pick up.

I'd be salty, too, if the shoe was on the other foot with us and Sparty.

06/15/2018 - 12:06pm It's almost impossible to…

It's almost impossible to kill a team like OSU. You have to get extremely lucky, because you have to take the territories they occupy AND all the territories they touch.

Even if you overwhelm them with numbers in every possible territory (complete RNG every turn), the way the game works makes it very probable that they will take at least 1 territory.

In other words, if we went full bore after OSU, we'd probably lose AND they'd survive.

06/15/2018 - 12:02pm Clemson is a very, very…

Clemson is a very, very reliable ally. There were like 5 low-level rogues who took territory from us, which is insignificant.

Don't waste your stars taking territory from Clemson unless it's your official order.

This is based on experience....the last time Clemson accidentally took territory from us, we had a whole bunch of rogues push back. It was a waste of hundreds of stars and may have cost us dearly again our opponents.

06/14/2018 - 1:02pm We are losing territory…

We are losing territory because, even though we have the largest army, we have Wisconsin, OSU, and Alabama all focusing their fire on us. It'll be easier with Florida, Texas, GT, and Clemson all touching those guys now.

And we should expect to lose 80/20 matches 1/5th of the time. We are also winning battles we "shouldn't" win. RNG is RNG is RNG. If you look at the numbers, our wins are pretty darn close to our "expected wins" total.

Where is he ranked #1. I don't see that on 247, Rivals, or ESPN.

06/06/2018 - 3:06pm Red has spent a lot of time…

Red has spent a lot of time trying to kill them. They are only safe because Florida and GT have their backs. I'm not worried about them.

06/06/2018 - 12:41pm Think of all Clemson…

Think of all Clemson territories as Michigan territories. Also, notice that the east coast is all Allies Forces (GT, Clemson, Michigan, Texas, Florida). Finally, note that Florida is finally able to unleash hell on the red forces.

It doesn't look great due to the lack of yellow, but you have to think in terms of alliances, not Michigan vs. The World.

The Michigan Discord is private, so only confirmed Michigan supporters can see our strategies there.

This thread is decidedly NOT private, so any Buckeye with an internet connection can see what we're chatitng about here.

DO NOT REVEAL STRATEGY HERE.

Think of it as continuing the occupation of Columbus. There is nothing that pisses OSU off more than having Michigan in charge of their home territory.

If you're being petty, is the perfect assignment for you.

Dubble poest

05/24/2018 - 11:42am We gave it to them. Gives

We gave it to them. Gives them a more fortified position from which to fight.

They know not to fuck with us, because we could wreck them.

05/23/2018 - 4:56pm They are already down to 3

They are already down to 3 territories. It's good to keep the pressure on them when they are already reeling.

I clicked on this thread just to see if the quality of the title was predictive of the quality of the post.

It was.

05/23/2018 - 11:09am The difficulty with

The difficulty with eliminating any team -- but especially a high participation team like OSU -- is that they can focus all their power on just a few territories because they don't have much to defend. That's why Bama was able to explode after being down to 1 territory.

This is the first comment today that made me LOL. Well done.

05/14/2018 - 1:24pm The Basketball Tournament

The Basketball Tournament features solid talent, but it isn't high level by any means. Any former NBA players usually got a cup of coffee in the NBA and are past their prime. The most fearsome teams are usually the ones with a bunch of former college teammates (Syracuse has Boeheim's Army) or overseas pros. 

Our team is actually fairly solid. I wouldn't be surprised at all if they were in it to the end.
