CONGRATULATIONS TO /dup/ FOR THEIR G-CUP VICTORY!


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 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.

The Winter Cup season is officially upon us! Tentatively set for late January/early February, the Infinity Cup Committee proudly presents the G Cup, a friendly competition between webring boards that lay claim to representation of a world nation. Teams will take up their respective flags and take the pitch to claim global supremacy, in matches contested under Infinity Cup rules. "But what if my board doesn't represent a nation?" Worry not anon, I'm also opening the floor to teams willing to participate in exhibition matches. Select another board to take the square off with, or leave it up to random chance. These friendlies will serve appetizers on match days before we get to the G-Cup games that "matter". Plenty have teams have lined up to participate in the Winter Cup, and while it won't be a full on Infinity Cup, I did want to give you guys something to fight for. Like I said before ICUP6, my goal is to keep driving the Cup towards something sustainable, and easy to pick up. This means pouring over thousands of files, fucking with HEX, and tinkering with Konami-built bullshit to see how it works. By hosting this scaled down version of things, I'm hoping that I can make big progress on that front. I'll be looking for anons (preferably those not already taking up management of a team) who can host a matchday or two, and we're still looking to expand the commentary booth. All in all, we're still looking to put together a solid event, so a good time can be had by everyone. I'm leaving this post in the meta thread for now, and I'll keep a personal running tally of those who want to participate either in the G-Cup, or in the exhibition games. Once I get the logo for the Cup ready, I'll create the meta thread for it and post all relevant info in there from then on. As the realities of the webring continue to keep anons from being together, I'm going to keep working on having this one thing that we can gather around and have a laugh with. I look forward to having you all here when the Cup kicks off come winter.
>>1913 Baller, dude, hoping to see a test cup before the end of the year though
>>1913 Thanks for your work, friend.
Sweet, sounds great! Is this one organized by SKF or another volunteer? I only ask because I'm looking to create a new stadium and fix modelling issues, last time there was direct communication which was useful (but it's not strictly necessary).
>>1924 Yep, it's still me organizing.
>>1925 RIGGED!!

>>1913 This is not the G Cup logo.
>>1913 Big into it m8, thanks for putting in so much work.
Hey so someone shilled this on /mlpol/dotnet saying we could join in. I see that you all run this a bit different from the 4 chan cup or the /pol/eauge. I've been trying to dig through your wiki and this meta thread to get a feel on how things are run here but its still pretty unclear to me. So I'll throw in a few questions and hope they either get answered here or on the thread one of you made on /mlpol/. 1. Is live managing allowed? 2. Are midcups a tactical export changes a thing? 3. Is the icup on the fox engine? (The engine where we have our latest aesthetics export.) 4. Is the Gold Silver SIlver Bronze Bronze format similar to the autumn 18 cup's format or different?
Is this still a webring series or are other boards now entering? Because 3 separate /pol/ teams without a /leftypol/ is just boring.
>>1943 To be fair I'm not even sure if we can enter in, someone just shilled it on the board and more or less said come here to talk about it, no idea if it was someone who helps organize it or if it was just someone from our own site who wanted to see us play here given that they didn't have a name (not that trips would mater between sites).
>>1944 Sure, it seems legitimate though. Good luck. I'm just concerned this might get over-saturated with the /pol/itics cancer, but then again this competition tends to bring out the best of each board (except /cow/, who weren't invited) so you should be fine. Merge them like /v/ into an Axis powers team!!1!: /dup/=Germany, /fascist/=Italy, /mlpol/=Japan
>>1940 Very glad you guys came, let me answer those: Yes, we do run things a bit differently due to the scope of the cup being much smaller than the 4CC. Most of the work is done by our tireless rigger SKF and his pals, while I mostly just hang around the board and occasionally do wiki edits. 1. To my knowledge we have never done it, but it's mostly because 90% of the teams were created by anons and left unmanned. I think we can definitely do something like it, just ask the host - also you can add a substitution strategy as well, so even if your manager can't make it the riggers know what you had in mind and will attempt to follow your instructions. 2. We had a few instances of teams changing formation so unless it's an entire rewrite of the team I think we can do that. 3. We run PES 2017 tournaments so I'm assuming it does. 4. I am not sure if you're referring to 4CC's or 8CC's here, so I'll just write down the rules as I remember them. Each team can have: >One Gold player (6 player cards/COM playing styles, lvl 99 stats) >One Silver player (4 player cards/COM playing styles, lvl 92 stats) >Two Bronze players (3 player cards/COM playing styles, lvl 85 stats) >At least one Goalkeeper (only one player card automatically assigned, GK Long Throw, lvl 70 stats) >Every non-goalkeeping player has 40 as his Goalkeeper stats 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. >>1943 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. After all we do allow mixed teams, like with /late&comfy/ being a rep for both /late/chan and anon.cafe/comfy/. Or /v/ being a team for both (((Markchan))) and Zchan's /v/s. Or Gaymergoiym having their own team that is practically separated from /v/. In essence, if you put enough effort into your team and it has a board culture to represent, you're pretty much a-okay for the tournament. >Because 3 separate /pol/ teams without a /leftypol/ is just boring. There's a discussion within the catalog about it, general consensus seemed to be that people don't really want them or don't care enough to get them in. I wouldn't be against it but I'd rather people wouldn't desert the matches just because they're in. Also, the /pol/ that tried to join is a Poetry board, but they never posted any export, while the other political boards are more niche than /pol/.
>>1945 >Merge them like /v/ into an Axis powers team!!1!: /dup/=Germany, /fascist/=Italy, /mlpol/=Japan Only if SKF greenlights a /qanon/ board. He can't handle the truth of the patriots...............
RIP Diego. Fucking greatest legend in divegrass.

>>1965 I'm privileged to having seen him kick a ball and waddle around once, even when he could barely walk and breathe he had an absurd level of spatial intelligence and dexterity to put the ball wherever he wanted to in whatever position he was. One-in-a-billion talent.
>>1965 Norfinos are mad to this day about being first outsmarted and then outclassed by a fatty bowling pin. Never forget about it. F, he's snorting packs from way above us far in the sky
(I'm not an official) >>1940 The rules (as of last cup) are officially here: http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Rules#Roster_Rules What >>1947 said is mostly right, although normal players are set to 77, not 70. Currently we don't have live managing, but like they said you can define a sub strategy (/fascist/ for example change from 3 forwards to 4 at 70' by bringing on a supersub). >>1947 >general consensus seemed to be that people don't really want them or don't care enough to get them in The thread is gone but it's still in Google's cached pages. The main argument was 'not webring' which was a legitimate argument last tournament. The rest was basically 'I don't care' vs 'stop liking what I don't like', the second one I feel is hypocritical and against the spirit of the tournament. I'm happy to take it to its own thread so it doesn't interrupt this one.

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
