Well, if anything's clear from what happened in the last streams... It's that horny dykes have good accuracy. Warcrimes that didn't happen aside, as usual, we wish you all the best except against us. In case you haven't been around in the last tournaments, let me tell you our team has the tradition of providing relevant material to our rivals in search of furthering friendship between the members of the communities involved. Considering ourselves a friendly board, we'd like to welcome all of you if you feel like paying a visit to our home back in smug, in your case I'd particularly recommend our own /aku/ thread.

I've been away for a long time, not even looking at the board. So I've got a bit of reading to do and I might say something that is answered/contradicted by something you wrote already because I didn't see it. I had some IRL big life events and changes immediately after the cup that took up most of my time post-cup, combined with massive burnout and a few minor things pushing me away from the webring imageboards. One more, I'd like to give a special shoutout to many people. Too many to list have contributed artistically and they all know who they are, but a special extra thanks for OneAnon (who helped enormously and long-term for non-tech organization, things like wiki, contacting people and boards, antispam), all the people who helped with the wiki, the /v/ aesthetics manager who stepped in to help reduce the load, and to the commentators Ox and Solomon who were often helping me while scrambling around for working streaming platform, as well as guest commentator Kimeemaru. In many ways, ICUP 7 was a clusterfuck of awkwardness, technical fuckups and unnecessary replays, but without those people it would have been far worse or not even gone ahead at all. I haven't made any plan for another cup, and I can't do the same crazy effort again, but I've come back to say I am happy to help organize, or if necessary run, another cup. But I absolutely cannot see us running one that big with the current volunteer base. 32 teams is just way too big for such a volatile, sparse league when there's just 1 or 2 technical volunteers and very few non-tech volunteers to take the pressure off by handling team strats, comms and wiki. And for the record, some of that is on me for not delegating not-so-technical stuff like image resizing to volunteers. I did make a big yell and shout about porting models to PES18 but unless other people have the capacity to do it (plural, because you will burn out if you're doing it alone in less than a few months), it's too much time to change something which, while not ideal, isn't actually broken. Which does bring me into something important: explaining, understanding, why the last cup was as broken as it was, so that it doesn't happen again: >me trying to reach an arbitrary deadline instead of delaying a month or two to properly test I was eager to do a summer cup, we were excited, and I did inadequate testing. Hosting is different to checking locally, and one test stream isn't good enough. Especially considering entire parts of the save were uprooted, we were using new stream hosts and we had 32 teams in auto-management. >chasing up and respecting dead teams We're in a tough position. We basically have more teams than viewers, and almost all the teams only have 0 to 3 fans. Then you have ones like /soy/ who were VERY hyped and then didn't even show. >limited volunteers/overload We tried to bring more people in to volunteer, to the point I felt I was spamming, but there's only so much we can fight the 1:10:100 rule of content creation and we don't even have 100 viewers. It's a fact until viewers at home decide otherwise and I've come to terms with it. Reducing workload will be easier this cup, but is still something I need to keep in mind as I have a bad habit of trying to do everything. something something hail eris. >fatigue I was doing the Stu Pickles routine for 4 weekends in a row. Doing 5 hour streams is also not ideal. That's a recipe for me misreading strats and getting replays of replays.

>>4914 Oh hey, you're back. Hopefully you've got a well deserved break after that huge load of work with the previous cup. If you're planning to reduce your role on a tentative new cup, overhauling the tutorials in the Infinity Wiki would help to introduce anons to volunteer and help you out, or at the very least point them to the pages that are already within the wiki. IIRC the modeling pages were the most sparse in spite of demanding a tremendous amount of effort on the 1~2 blenderfags. If anything, someone should spend some time in writing those tutorials so that anyone interested can be told to do it himself. It's more than clear that workload isn't humane for a single person in such a short stretch of time, so I'd advise to help prevent it form occuring again. On those questions at the end of your post: >stay on PES17 for the next cup, and indefinitely until we have the manpower to upgrade I'm not seeing the leap either. I don't mind PES17 for another cup. What's more, I rather PES17 over PES18 in the graphical department. Besides, there's a lot more work to do than say just porting models over, right? Let's call it off indefinitely. >don't be in a hurry to reach a dumb deadline like this winter I wouldn't like it this Winter either, though I wouldn't rather if we had to wait one entire year for the next cup. How about somewhere in May? It's not the long wait for August yet it's not as early as say, January or February. It might also give some leeway for anyone interested to make a sizeable contribution to the cup over say, two months from now. >cull teams, harshly I wasn't exactly thinking of culling them, but if it does help everyone involved I'll have it. In any case, whether it's reducing or maintaining the amount of teams on the cup, there were some serious issues regarding the last competition's roster of teams. For once it's true than, other than for the first few streams, there were more teams than there were viewers. On the ICUP7 teams themselves, one thing that's stood out to me is that, out of all 32 teams and 33 boards represented, 12 (11 if we're excluding /fascist/) of them were anon.cafe boards, that's more than a third of all teams. Rather conspicuous when we're talking about a site that beraly attracts numbers even in contrast to other sites on the webring. Another issue I found with the roster were the regional teams, who (other than /ita/ having a dedicated stream) saw limited interest in anyone chipping in throughout the cup. Makes sense, since the scope of those teams is limited to the country they represent. If there was another cup and I actually tried to make an effort to draw in a large number of anons I'd both focus on boards on the biggest sites of the webring (I'd say smug, zzz, sportschan and plw) and seasoning the cup with the odd team here and there (/eris/ for example); and remove that first come first serve mentality that plagued most of the reasoning in choosing teams. There were plenty of bizarre decisions made by the riggers on the previous cup that I doubt made sense to anyone that was watching it. It's hard to believe that no one could renew /librejp/ (that's a sizeable, distinct regional population of the webring) because /fscchan/ (literal-who board that's not even from the webring whose only commitment to this cup was writing "ok ok" when asked if they wanted their team renewed) had to get it; that /lego/ (that still has the best team in all of the cup) couldn't come back because the board is dead yet /islam/, /film/ or /sw/ made the cut; or that /bane/ (baneposting was a staple on 8ch and would have been a popular team in ICUP7 in spite of the board having reallocated to tvch and thus becoming shit) couldn't bring in friends and yet /egy/ could get in; etc. I'm doubtful you could justify all of these decisions and yet stil claim you wanted big numbers on the stream with a straight face. In between 32 and 16, if you're going ahead with trimming teams, try to go for 24, kind of like ICUP5, and place in teams in friendlies for those who throw a shitfit when the team they had submitted for a board that only one person uses wasn't chosen to be competing (in case preparing the friendlies isn't too demanding). I believe this answers most of the points raised in your post. shouldn't you be posting this on the ICUP8 bread? move these posts there or something
Not available to help with much besides our own team and maybe explaining some beyond-basic-necessities management to interested newcoming managers, but we were screwed and want revenge, we'll be here next time. Whenever that is. Not in our nature to rush things. Agreed on your 3 points there, only thing I want to know is if you have any preference on how to present the changes and organize the team's "database" so it's easier to manage for you. I want to avoid all confusions and I understand it's not easy. So, our thread here or at home, or maybe by e-mail? Gradually, or maybe everything but models in a single .zip? Is just changing the wiki for you to check there an option? Is there anyone still helping with models and other aesthetics? Those kinda things. Next time I might try some changes, if we're gonna lose it should be my fault. Also, hi. Anime lesbians pic pending 'cause I'm at work.
>>4914 Thank you for hosting it. I know the cup ended up being a huge mess but it's appreciated that you took the lead and also because Eris demanded it :^) >>4916 The modelling pages on the wiki would require someone to dump the entire process from the 4cc wiki into those, so if anyone's willing to do it then that's fine. >there's a lot more work to do than say just porting models over, right? The only process that someone not familiar with Blender like me wouldn't have problems with is porting PES17 heads. Creating heads in PES18+ now requires to cover around the neck and I won't even mention FBM because that's just way above my level. As for the schedule, only Grass Stains can say when is the next one happening but I do agree with you that a full year is not a good waiting time. Someone else (I think /yuri/'s manager) said that it'd be great to have two events per year to keep the hype going, although that's more easier said than done. >cafe getting more boards That's partially because of how some boards have migrated here (/sw/, /retro/) and the others have appeared in previous events (ICUP6 and GCUP). >Rather conspicuous when we're talking about a site that beraly attracts numbers even in contrast to other sites on the webring Not really a conspiracy theory and also the webring as a whole has changed a lot but this is not the place to discuss this. >regional teams The regional teams were a consequence of both the GCUP happening (which SKF made because of the Autist spamming a lot of outside boards with fake invites) and the previous BO expressing interest in opening up the event, with the only exceptions being /ita/, /argentina/ and /librejp/. >biggest sites on the webring In terms of boards participating in the cup out of all of the ones on the site only Smug fits and PLW is mostly active because of /animu/ >remove the first come first serve

This will be the final revision for /monarchy/ I promise, I won't do this anymore. Female cover of /monarchy/ anthem When the King Comes Home In Peace Again & an optional male cover. My instructions: The female & male versions are optional. The old anthem >>3178 is also completely optional for being used instead, preferably for home games, While the revised anthems female & male covers are for away games. Old anthem is ideal for being played as a victory theme, if we win at the end.

Saw in the match replays that some of our bench had incompatible positions so some substitutions couldn't happen. It looks like I fucked up some positions because I didn't realize that the positions needed to match those on the field, and additionally some of our roster changes on the wiki weren't picked up. I've updated our main team page and roster page with the correct positions for the bench. If the riggers could update the bench to reflect then, our subs should work.

Or, I don't know, give suggestions on what you want to see on the team. I will dripfeed everything the team has currently over the next few weeks.

Regarding the roster, current idea is that we mostly copy last cup http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki//2hu//Roster However we'd like Yuuka moved from Defense to Center for a 3-3-4 formation and pic related are current tactics. Medals aren't decided yet. Also if it's possible we'd like to change shirt numbers since someone asked them to be renumbered after the last popularity poll, new numbers would be: >Patchouli Knowledge #19 >Cirno #18 >Izayoi Sakuya #6 >Shameimaru Aya #11 >Kazami Yuuka #24 >Clownpiece #52 >Kochiya Sanae #13 >Reimu Hakurei #3 >Fujiwara no Mokou #8 >Kirisame Marisa #2 <Reserve players >Yakumo Yukari #16
