CONGRATULATIONS TO /fascist/ FOR THEIR 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.

Will both the save file and the aesthetics for this Cup be uploaded to the wiki?
>>1748 >>1748 Seconded, give us the models, SKF
Slowly but surely getting those stats done. Things are coming up pretty regularly at the last minute that limit my time to put things on the wiki. I feel like starting to rewrite some guide pages once the stats are totaled. >>1755 >>1748 Save file and aesthetics are now up on the wiki. They're on the PES 2017 page.
>>1756 >Save file and aesthetics are now up on the wiki. They're on the PES 2017 page. Sweet, thanks a lot. Been meaning to mod a team or two.

hey maties, I have come to make an announcement /toddcollins/ has been purchased by Microsoft for 6 trillion sheckles, now go and buy some fukn xboxs go- I mean loyal fan
>>1707 >>1710 maybe have a shitpost cup full of shitpost teams where the winner qualifies for the main tournament
Can this board be marked SFW? Not to make people be careful about what they post, but to add it to the SFW Overboard.
>>1771 I do not feel it's necessary, but sure, if you think we'd have higher visibility than go for it and ask the web owners on their Meta threads.
>>1772 I'm not sure about visibility, but it does make it easier to get updates for those who feel the non SFW-overboard is too fast and uncomfy it can't just be me, r-right?.
>>1773 >>1771 I agree, we need it to be SFW if we wanna have more visibility.

>>1771 My problem with it is that some teams are pornographic in nature, or have pornographic imagery to go with their players. If we imposed a spoiler rule for stuff that is waaaaaay too raunchy, then I'd be up for it, but most peopple wouldn't I'm assuming.
>>1765 That is beautiful >>1777 (Jackpot) That's the direction I'm leaning with this. We're probably gonna have some lewd shit every now and again, but I don't believe it will be constant enough to push us into the NSFW territory. A spoiler rule would be the best bet. >>1770 No comment as of now. I'm mulling over options re: a secondary Cup.
>>1779 I was really hoping we could have had a G-CUP to complement the I-CUP, as in Global Cup, with all the regional boards. In our case, it'd be something like this: /librejp/ /ita/ /ausneets/ /dup/ (for the USA) /britfeel/ (if they finish their export in time) /christian/ (vatican city) /islam/ (Middle East) And possibly any sort of extra regional team that'd be willing to join us, if we could link up with an /argentina/ board or get the /hisparefugio/ guys back in it'd be grand.

>>1784 Sorry forgot my pic (obviously it's going to be a golden G-cup bra with the world beneath it or something)
>>1784 The /hisparefugio/ seem to be MIA, but there's an active /argentina/ board on endchan https://endchan.net/argentina/
>>1784 /lego/ represents the Danes
>>1787 Sounds like a great idea. Gotta try asking them. >>1788 Heh. Could work actually.
>>1784 So to recap: Real National teams: /librejp/ - Japan /ita/ - Italy /dup/ - USA /ausneets/ - Australia /britfeel/ - Great Britain ---------------- Non Proper Teams that can still represent other nations: /lego/ - Denmark /christian/ - Vatican City OR the Christian World /islam/ - Middle East OR the Islamic World OR Saudi Arabia
>>1800 What could /islam/ represent except the whole Ummah?
>>1800 /eris/ could represent Greece or the Greco-Roman world if you need numbers.
>>1802 That'd be fun, but would it work lore-wise?

>>1812 Quotes from the Principia Discordia (4th ed.): page 00008 >It was not until they traced the Greek writing on the apple that they discovered the ancient Goddess known to the Greeks as Eris and to the Romans as Discordia. page 00015 >The Romans left a likeness of Her for posterity--She was shown as a grotesque woman with a pale and ghastly look, Her eyes afire, Her garment ripped and torn, and as concealing a dagger in Her Bosom. Actually, most women look pale and ghastly when concealing a chilly dagger in their bosoms. >Her geneology is from the Greeks and is utterly confused. [...] >[...] [Eris] told [Mal-2] that She had always liked the Old Greeks, but that they cannot be trusted with historic matters. "They were," She added, "victims of indigestion, you know." page 00002 >"Should an Eristocracy ever be required to participate in an international football world championship, they must [claim to] represent both the Greeks and the Romans in an attempt to start war between those empires." When we informed her that those two nations are no longer empires, she replied "Shit, really?" page 00004 (THE FIVE COMMANDMENTS) >V - A Discordian is Prohibited of Believing what he reads. Like all important questions, the answer is whatever the heck you choose, according to lore.
>>1816 Sounds good to me, you're on.
>>1816 >"Should an Eristocracy ever be required to participate in an international football world championship, they must [claim to] represent both the Greeks and the Romans in an attempt to start war between those empires." When we informed her that those two nations are no longer empires, she replied "Shit, really?" I can't tell if you're being honest or not, as to best suit the /eris/ way I guess
>>1800 /bane/ can represent either Ubekistan or France, the former as that's where the plane crashed in the movie and the latter because that's where Germanwings 4U9525 crashed
>>1800 whilst /otter/ can represent Singapore as their Captain Bishan Dad is from there /sp/ can represent India because both of them like Crik /lang/ can represent either Switzerland or the United Nations and maybe if there can be a /fit/ team then they can represent Chad
[just an anon] >>1846 >>1847 These are a bit of a stretch, but could be useful if necessary to get it up to a convenient 16 teams.
>>1846 >>1847 >>1848 I gotta be honest, we currently have 6 national teams and we can easily just use 2 more from the prospective teams according to G-Cup ruleset. I mean, I appreciate your efforts, but if people from all over the world aren't watching it it's not really a world cup styled tournament. Perhaps you could scour anonymous webpages until you find more regional groups and ask them to join our competition. I wanted to try and ask the Indiachan folks over.

You waited damn near a month, but here it is, the final wrap up of the 6th Edition of The Infinity Cup. The Award we knew heading in, the Golden Boot, was a first, being split by 3 players, all of whom are captain of their respective teams. So without further ado, here's a quick rundown: The Golden Boot Alfred Legosen, Ammit, Cuckquean-tan (6) Again, we knew this coming in. The Golden Boot is no stranger to being shared, but bby 3 people is new territory. insert /cuckquean/ joke here The Golden Touch Benito Mussolini (5) With how /fascist/'s fans were giving him shit, you'd think Benito ended up with maybe two points the whole way. Not the case, as his coming alive in the Knockout Stage sent him clear of Catgirl Maid who finished 2nd with 4 assists. The Golden Glove Charles Maurras Resisting my apparent natural inclination to spell his name "Maurass", I give the best keeper award to /fascist/'s netminder. Yes, he very nearly shit the bed against /lego/, but his performance the rest of the way was excellent. Tack that onto an impressive Group Stage showing (the shutout vs. /christian/) and Maurras earns the keeper crown. I do have to give credit to both of /bane/'s keepers though. They played 4 and 3 games respectively, and both held a goals against/keeper coefficient of under 1.00. The Golden Ball Cuckquean-tan The most difficult choice I had to make, second only to Goal of the Tournament. /cuckquean/'s captain had a terrible performance through the Group Stage. Amazingly though, CQ-tan turned it around in the Knockouts, with all 6 of her goals, and 2 assists coming in the final stage. Her 8 points were actually matched by Mussolini (3-5), but I just couldn't look past her surge of goal scoring. She single-handedly took down /yuri/ with a hat trick in the Quarters, almost earned Goal of the Tournament too. Again, it was tough. The Golden Screw Sweet Dreams /late/ & /comfy/'s keeper suffered the lowly distinction of being credited with the only own goal of the tournament. A 90+1 shot from a /cuckquean/ player went in off him and stole a tie from his squad. In a truly cruel twist of fate, that point lost would have been enough to see them through to the Knockout Stage, as their win against /monster/ would have given them enough for passage through the 3rd place group at least. If you ask me, the designation is bullshit, the keeper's job is to make saves, and he had to try and stop that shot. From what I saw, it was going in anyway, so to slap him with an Own Goal is just twisting the knife. So yeah, he got screwed. I could have given it to the whole team now that I think about it, but Sweet Dreams took it on the chin especially hard. The Jade Clock /eris/ 4 - 4 /sp/ (Group F Match) I don't like the name of this award so I'm changing it. Match of the tournament goes to /eris/-/sp/. I was thinking about giving it to /lego/-/fascist/ but that was more "Tale of Two Matches" rather than Match of the Tournament. The back and forth nature of the 4-4 draw, plus the yellow card to /eris/'s GK and the resulting penalty was what sealed it. Explain the joke behind the Jade Clock name and I might keep it The Award With No Name (Goal of the Tournament) Dr. Pavel, 4-0 goal vs. /animu/ While it doesn't have the in-match significance of last year's officially unofficial Goal of the Tournament, Dr. Pavel's 4-0 dagger perfectly encapsulated the state of the match that day. /bane/ were relentless on attack, and when they struck, it was both deadly and effortless. Pavel's cheeky back heel was all that and more. Coming just at the start of added time, the goal gave him a brace on the day, and completely buried /animu/. This one was the toughest choice for me. You have Ammit's Bergkampian effort vs /bmn/ to tie it 1-1, and Cuckquean-tan's 2-2 marker vs /ausneets/ to contend with (webms here >>1859 ). There's arguments to be made for all 3 honestly. I went with Pavel's because it just got better every time I watched it. Ammit's was excellent, it almost reached that mark. Cuckquean-tan's is almost as nice a setup as it was a goal, but it just didn't have enough to surpass Pavel's. As for the other awards, I didn't see fit to award Platinum Lube yet because I'm still not sure what it is (maybe that can be our version of the Wooden Spoon, now that I type this out). Aquamarine Microphone would be masturbatory considering it was only 4 of us. Star of David, the irony is not lost on me, giving it to a player from /christian/. I think the description needs a rewrite, maybe a shortening. Again my issue with it was that it seems to be meant for fans/a management team, but most of you were on your best behavior, save for those early drivebys. I'll take a look, but the ones listed above are all on the Awards page now, so check em out.

>>1857 >Cuckquean-tan wins Golden Boot and Golden Ball Time for smug. Very proud of our girl! Thank you for taking the time to wrap all this up. I know this is a small tournament and there's a ton of behind-the-scenes work we don't see or appreciate but it was so much fun, even if I didn't get to watch the matches live. >Aquamarine Microphone would be masturbatory considering it was only 4 of us. Nope. Your attempt to refuse the award is denied. You get it. OxfordComma shares it. Take it. Take the microphone.

Here are the webms for the finalists for Goal of the Tournament. FFMPEG crushed them a bit, I'm not really happy about it but they'll do.
>>1857 Congratulations to all those involved in the tournament and a warm thank you to you and all the other riggers who made this possible.

>>1862 Okay why the hell is the spoiler so damn big, I know I uploaded the thumbnail sized one It's pretty funny though, might as well leave it like that for the time being
>https://pastebin.com/C4dpfgZd Uhm, neither of the links here work, and the wiki... quite aggressively says they should?
>>1873 Do the ones in the 4CC wiki page work the same or are those different? Because if so then use those
>>1873 >>1874 Works on My Machineā„¢ The link to the crack still works on my end, the executable is gone. I can upload my copy of the file and edit the page accordingly.
>>1876 >>1873 aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand the Crack folder is empty. Alright I'll fix both. But the aggressive text on the wiki stays.

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!!

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?
