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.
>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.
F. Enjoy your armchair in the sky, big man.
>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.
