WELCOME TO I-C-U-P Anonymous 05/04/2020 (Mon) 23:08:07 No.1
STREAM AT https://cytu.be/r/8cup MATCH SCHEDULE ON >>1233 AND >>1234 This board is a the new home to the /icup/ and /8cc/ boards over 8kun.top. Our objective at /icup/ is to provide sports oriented competitions for all boards of the Webring (as well as any other IB who's willing to pitch in) of various sports. Our most well known tournament is of course the 8chan Cup or Inter-Board Cup, hosted...sometimes by our tireless rigger SKF. For more information about the 8chan Cup/Inter-board Cup and all teams competing in it you can visit http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Main_Page The new wiki can (slowly) be found at: https://infinitycup.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page [Account required to edit] RULES 1. Global rules apply (don't post illegal stuff) 2. Threads should be about creating new teams for the upcoming Inter-board Cups, as well as discussing new formats (Racing Wars, Handegg, Majoritycrimerateball, Wrestling in collab with 8chanmania) and suggesting new tools to mod and host better tournaments 3. Organizing sponsored and friendly matches among teams; 4. Organizing your own board's team and roster. Match replays: https://pt.neko.bar/video-channels/icuparchive/video-playlists

Alright, a few things need to be cleared up. Apparently a ton of invites have been sent out, to boards and sites I've never even heard of. Obviously, that means it is not me sending these posts out. When I took the helm of the ICUP, we were still on 8chan. Shit has obviously happened since, and we now reside on the webring. As such, and as previously stated here >>1913 , on the wiki, and during streams, I maintain the Cup as an event for the anons and boards of the webring. I intend it to be for us. NOW, this is not the Infinity Cup itself, this is a spinoff event. I wanted to leave the door open for non-board joke/meme teams to help keep things light and fun. So if the boards that ended up invited wish to genuinely participate, I will let them in with good faith for these exhibition matches. However, if things even remotely look like they're going sideways, I will pull the plug on this shit. We had a brief spell of bullshit last Cup, and I've already mentioned what happened in Cup 4. I do not want drama getting in the way of a good time. So if everyone stays on their best behavior during, we'll all be fine. With that being said, the anon who is reaching out to other sites and boards, I'm asking you to stop because it has served to complicate things. Rapid expansion is a death knell for sports leagues in real life, let's not let it muddy the waters here. >>1947 >As for height, we used to ask for those stats as well but since the riggers are very few and most teams don't even bother to give us any, we usually just handwave it unless it gives a significant advantage to a team. Absolutely not. I follow that shit to the letter BECAUSE it can give such a significant advantage. If a team doesn't submit heights, I fill them in according to the rules, and attempt to be as fair as possible. I don't screw over teams by giving the top heights to bench players who will never see the pitch. The height rules have always been listed on the wiki with the rest of the rules applicable to roster creation. >We used to be an 8chan only cup, then it died and it became a Webring only cup, then it kind of lost momentum because of Julay and drama so it became more of an all encompassing inter board/imageboard tournament. Again, not quite. It's for the Webring. Also, don't give those shitstirring fags who popped in on Day One any credit or attribution. They don't deserve it. >>1965 >>1966 >>1967 F. Enjoy your armchair in the sky, big man. >>1968 >The thread is gone but it's still in Google's cached pages. So it is. Does this board only have 5 pages? I know we're slow moving, but given the number of threads that need to stay up here, I'd like to see that changed. >The main argument was 'not webring' which was a legitimate argument last tournament. They took direct action to compromise the stability of our former site, and thus the Cup. They made their choice. I'm not going to hear better reasoning on the matter than that. Mod edit to prove it's really me.

>>1973 >Does this board only have 5 pages? I know we're slow moving, but given the number of threads that need to stay up here, I'd like to see that changed. If you have Early 404 turned on and it was under the reply limit for Early 404, it may have been removed early.
>>1973 Global thread limit is 50. Looks like /icup/ is at 50 so any threads pushed off are lost. If we raise the limit it is raised for everyone. How many threads do you think you'll need?
>>1978 Not BO, but can you global-up, local-down?
>>1981 We can't set per-board administrative limits that BOs can't change, so we have to assume they'll all want the most threads they can have.
>>1973 So is there a height system on the wiki? Can't seem to find the rules page on it, if there is one it'd be nice to have that link, otherwise if you wouldn't mind telling me the system that would be helpfu.
>>1973 >Absolutely not. I follow that shit to the letter BECAUSE it can give such a significant advantage. If a team doesn't submit heights, I fill them in according to the rules, and attempt to be as fair as possible. I don't screw over teams by giving the top heights to bench players who will never see the pitch. The height rules have always been listed on the wiki with the rest of the rules applicable to roster creation. Ah, I see, good of you to clarify that
>>1973 Moggibonsi here SKF do you perhaps need more janitors for the board? I can't do it until I get off from work but if you have anyone in mind just tell me. >>1978 I don't think we need more than 5 with how things are right now so unless it's easy on the storage you can skip it imo Though it would be good if anyone went ahead and archived threads with the exports. Maybe I'll do it later.

>>1980 Interesting find, anon. I have noticed that the same message was posted on another couple of Endchan boards. Is there any deeper meaning behind this? This isn't yet another Dragongate scenario, right?
>>1973 Indiachan anon here So does it mean we cannot join? We're kind of a smaller community compared to the places I've seen here so we don't really get many chances to do something fun like this.
>>1978 I've seen complaints on /fascist/ about the catalog size as well recently. Bumping it up would be a big help
>>2008 I personally don't mind non webring boards in as long as they're well behaving anons.
(I am not staff or admin) >>2008 I think what they are saying is: >last year, we restarted the soccer/football games with Infinity Cup 6. This was only for teams in the Webring imageboards. >this time, we're doing a small cup (the 'G Cup') for specific Webring teams, but also allowing other teams to play bonus friendly 'exhibition' matches before the normal games. So I think you will be allowed to play in the bonus exhibition matches only, not the main official tournament.
>>1978 No idea if it puts any additional strain on the site by bumping it up, but having it at say 75 would be serviceable. >>2002 Think we're good on jannies for now, things are moving slow enough that it's not a problem. >>2008 We'll let you participate in this event. >>2011 pretty much summarized it right, this is just a bunch of friendlies, and not the completely serious, rigorously contested, official ICUP, so we can open it up.
>>2004 >>1980 Forgot to reply to these. I wouldn't go as far to invoke Dragongate, since nothing has actually happened. What does give me pause is how the posts are written. I've always had a copypaste post that I change minor details on in order to get info out to the relevant boards ASAP, but this one feels off for some reason. The writing feels like an amalgam of previous posts & stuff on the wiki, rather than info being penned out and formatted into a post. Also whoever did it didn't take into account different sites have different formatting rules (look at how Infinity Cup didn't get bolded on mlpol dotnet). I'm not suggesting anything sinister is afoot, it just seems like a weird combination of low effort but also effort at the same time.
>>2013 By the way, I've taken the liberty of archiving the whole board, including the pictures of the provided exports, just in case some threads fall off the catalog and we don't have info on teams willing to participate. https://web.archive.org/web/20201126165542/https://anon.cafe/icup/catalog.html
>>2016 Here's an older archive of it, with most of the threads that have fallen off: https://archive.is/UBbpN Those threads are archived as well
>>2017 >>2016 Excellent. Old exports could also technically be reverse-engineered via the old save files on the wiki, but that would take a long time and would be very tedious.
Apologies for the lack of updates. I'll go into detail in the wiki thread about why that's taking a while, but here's an update on fucking with the game's files. I'm getting results! Not the results I'd like, but still...
SKF Or anyone else that has an admin account on the wiki, could you please delete this file http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/File:Lego_Lineup.png ? It's outdated and been replaced and I can't delete it
https://www.youtube.com/c/TifoFootball/videos This is a great channel about divegrass tactics.
>>1973 >and I've already mentioned what happened in Cup 4 Uhh... What happened in Cup 4?
>>2308 I think I may have meant Cup 5. Cup 4 was relatively smooth, if I remember it right.
>2019 Summer Infinity Cup - Friendly: /monster/ vs. /2hu/ >"I really hope it does get to 11 shooters because I do love seeing the goalies go at it."
>>2332 Is that the /kong/ rep?
Since I See You Pee is the obvious pun, I say we need a Manneken Pis banner.
>>2357 how the fuck do filters work
heads up, nekobar is down
nekobar up, heads down
Nekobar is back again; however, there's not a single trace of anything regarding videos or channels. Either it's a slow mantainance update or it got nuked at some point.
>>2674 Seems like most of the neko hub is down. Can't access their Git, especially. We'll see if this is a recurring problem.
>>2688 based, thanks for the great news, I can rewatch some matches in peace now
>>2688 Hey OP, please change shit
>>2699 Link in >>2688 is fugged. OP updated with proper links and new wiki.
So, are the old match archives now lost to time?
>>2813 >just a blank page Fuck. I really hope this is just another maintenance. But still, it's a good idea to look for a second channel for stuff like this.
>>2814 just put them on youtube.com

>>2814 >jewtube
>>2816 yeah, or some other site that works
Just put them on fucking dailymotion, no one cares about dailymotion
>>2814 >>2813 According to the janny I emailed, he's looking for another vps. The site's not dead, the data is backed up and worse comes to worst I still have the raw stream files. >>2818 Dailymotion sucks though.
>>2815 >>2818 Put them on archive.org. No ads, no downtime. It's literally perfect for this.
>>2820 Any updates on this? Because if not we should do what >>2821 says.
>>2828 Still seems to be down at the moment. Might have to start mass uploading these things again. I'll email the Neko admin and see.
God damn it I can't edit the banner or text bar. Anyway, the name is my new contact email. Protonmail.
