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. Match replays: https://bitwave.tv/SKF/replay/T7HkWyNbSmmHNvSQQ8li https://bitwave.tv/SKF/replay/qoqKfQfWPkCbxC5mzt2O https://bitwave.tv/SKF/replay/BXwke00eSkIrvGiqCC2d

Good to have you here.
>>8 The feeling is more than mutual, friend. Got a team you want to make? Please, be sure to create its own thread!
What are all the requirements for a new board to enter?
>>151 Back on 8chan there was a certain limit due to the number of boards, but in this one we'll allow any board that is either on the webring or on a friendly site. By that I mean any site that isn't part of the ACF or that hasn't tried to raid us (think dolphinfag). So, even if it's an entirely different imageboard, as long as they can provide their own materials (in the case of PES, its minimum requirements are a logo, at least one compatible kit according to picture related and a roster of a minimum of 16 character names) they're eligible for the tournament.
How do invites for boards work?
>>183 Well, it's mostly a first-come-first-serve kind of deal - whoever makes the team with the most work put behind them (as in, they go beyond just making kits, from custom models to tons of support and wiki edits etc.) is already eligible for participation. Even if the slots are fully occupied, the tournament is very flexible and there can be extended groups or side events for those who don't make the cut.
>>184 So if we want to see if a certain board will play, we can just go invite them as we please, then?
>>190 I don't see why not. What did you have in mind?
>>194 Sportschan /sp/ and /librejp/ and /cuckquean/ from this site
>>212 >/cuckquean/ I think they were already invited and responded positively but said they lack expertise.
>>212 Sure, I love the /librejp/ guys.
That was during the last icup. But I do think I remember them making a team logo at least.
>>218 Meant to respond to >>214

HOLY FUCK I AM SO LOST Okay, so I want to get my team's kit together. I see multiple templates for kit. Which one is the one I use? I think the minimum we need is a team badge and home kit + away kit + goalie kit, right? I see people making bumpers and ads for spaces? What are these for and when do they get played? What's the maximum we can do for max aesthetics? This is our first time but the wiki's geared towards those who already know.

>>348 >Which one is the one I use? This here is the one. What board are you from anon?
Any reason this board is marked NSFW?
(I am not staff, team rep just like you) >>348 The wiki is very much geared towards those already familiar. Especially for those making DLC, might as well just redirect to the implyingrigged wiki instead of saying 'just learn blender' (I already know blender, not PES). The closest to a newbie guide is the Rules article. >I think the minimum we need is a team badge and home kit + away kit + goalie kit, right? Yes. >I see people making bumpers and ads for spaces? What are these for and when do they get played? Some can be placed on billboard ad spaces in stadiums. Look at 4chan cup (4CC) gameplay or better yet, install PES 2017 (instructions on wiki) with the 2019 summer cup DLC and save file, and look at the stadiums. Some other material is just general hype material. >What's the maximum we can do for max aesthetics? The maximum? 3D model new players or their faces using Blender. This is rare but present (only about 20-30 out of thousands of players, mostly from a few select teams) and potent. Far more popular in the 4CC where they have more resources and history. If you have the guts and time, look at the Blender Tutorial article in link below, with APC and FPC as extra references. Resources for PES 2017 aesthetics: https://implyingrigged.info/wiki/Pro_Evolution_Soccer_2017 (see right hand sidebar) HOWEVER, some small details there are specific to the 4CC, not infinitycup. Things like their autocompiler all that. Ask for advice here and hopefully we see it. I wouldn't start with 3D modeling because there are many smaller easier things that will help just as much. - Logo (required) - Home/Away/GK (required) - Anthem, Victory anthem, Goal horns to play when your team or a certain player scores - Wiki page for your board - Player portraits (icons used for them in formation change menu) - Billboards (idk details, probably just needs to have the right aspect ratio) - Stadium model (probably requires serious work, I haven't tried yet)
>>348 If you're still having trouble with the kit, there's a couple of kit makers online as well. As for the bumpers and ads, that's not a requirement, but it is good to do. Anything to build up the culture around the Cup and create board OC is fine by me. As for the writing of the wiki, that is my bad. Anything regarding Blender, I haven't been able to write about due to my lack of knowledge on it, sort of an inverse problem to >>352. The one guy who worked on the custom models last Cup looked at the 4CC shit to figure out how to import models in. Our system to remove parts of/whole players is basically theirs, it's not been altered, so it's applicable. And just because you brought up stadiums, they are edited with blender as well, as are the game balls.
>>353 >The one guy who worked on the custom models last Cup looked at the 4CC shit to figure out how to import models in. /eris/friend here, I did the same. I think the best way to approach the 3D modding page (and I'm happy to do this) is to point to implyingrigged's PES 2017 and 2016 articles and explain the few little differences between our cup and theirs. They did a good job and re-inventing the wheel is useless here.
>>351 Beats me, I could ask the Admins to change us to SFW but is it really an issue?
>>348 The templates may look different but they're really all the same, just use >>350 if you're too lost. I guess the problem stems from the fact that PES prior to like 2015 used a much different template.
What happened to the wiki???
>>383 All the pages are blank
>>384 Shoutwiki in general is down
>>385 weird, 8chanmania still seems to be up but infinity is down despite both bring under shoutwiki
>>386 >On Thursday, approximately 10AM UTC, we'll be performing our MediaWiki 1.34 deployment. Please expect some downtime, we apologise in advance for any inconvenience! Here's what's going on
>>387 So this is absolutely weird Apparently the wiki has been edited on the morning of the 29th of May, but all pages return a blank and there's no version history. Furthermore, I can't edit or create pages (waybackmachine has most of the wiki backed up) and I can't for the life of me find the contact list for shoutwiki's help desk. Anyone want to crack this case?
>>392 I found this email support@shoutwiki.com when looking around, hopefully they'll respond to you as that's a lot of lore lost
>>393 I already did, they assured me they would look into it and server migration is causing hiccups.
>>397 Seems to be back now
To what extent can custom models be used? Like can you only slightly change the base player (e.g. colour of skin) or could you introduce a completely new model to replace it? Also how far can you change stadiums?
>>400 This clip from the previous 4chan Cup should clarify what is possible. https://bootleg.hamuko.moe/video/spring-2020/2020-05-02/1/ (start at 15:34) There are tutorials for full player customization (FPC) on implyinrigged wiki, if they have similar dimensions to the default player then it will be much easier/better. I haven't tried a stadium but they have documentation pages for them too.
Quick update. Been tweaking a few things in-game, still trying to see if we can make more edits to things we couldn't last Cup. I fixed a problem I was having with the game balls, so that's gonna make things easier for me moving forward (The models are also really simple and can be changed easily for decent hilarity, so give it a shot if you want). We're at 14 teams who have currently accepted the invitation to join the Cup. Some don't have threads up on the board yet, but I've spoken to anons who were shouldering responsibilities previously and they're fine with moving ahead. In addition, there's about 7 other teams where the invite has been put forward, but things still are up in the air. The numbers are less than ideal, as workable tournaments come out of 16, 24, or 32 teams, but there's still plenty of time for that to change. I'm officially ruling out July as a start time for the Cup, so we're going to be kicking things off come August and the length of time the Cup will run is dependent on the number of teams we get. >>400 You can completely remove players and replace them with new models. We've currently already done that with a few players like Miku and Aniki. Stadiums can be changed in the same way, we just haven't figured things out yet.
>>405 >so we're going to be kicking things off come August Good, I just hit a demotivation patch and got part-time work >16, 24, or 32 teams Worst case, we can quickly make a few extra teams to round up. What's with those 7 teams? Are they doubtful/half-hearted like /fa/ or is it something else? If they really aren't motivated, we can push two in and get a perfect 16 team tourney
>>406 It's a combination of ones that gave a lukewarm response to the invite, ones that have expressed interest but I have literally no idea where they are, and one or two who basically said "We'll let the board decide" and then said nothing after that. I'm not giving up on any of them just yet, but I'd rest a little easier if they did step forward with a decision sooner rather than later.
I mean we could just make the teams for them if they're boards like /v/ and /tv/
>>401 >>405 Thanks, that really helped. >>406 >>407 Don't know about other boards but /lego/ isn't that populated so we've taken some time to get things ready. We're almost there; just need to finalise a roster and I'll have a look online if there are any models I can find.
>>405 Could we get a list of teams we've invited and teams that have accepted? Maybe we need to try our luck on Sportschan or Floridachan aswell, or some of the french boards.
>>416 This is by no means official and definitive, but in no particular order: /otter/ /ita/ /a/ /animu/ /monster/ /test/ /eris/ /2hu/ /mecha/ /ausneets/ /k/ /bmn/ /wooo/ /latecomfy/ and then the "maybe"s /christian/ /kind/ /tg/ /yuri/ /co/ /cyber/ /bane/ And this does not count /art/ and /v/ which are currently active threads, as they're kind of just dipping their toe in the water to see about things.
>>430 It's sad that /kind/ doesn't seem interested in joining again, I'd have liked to see them defend their title.
>>432 they are currently a very small board, it may take some prodding, but there's not many people to convince. Plus they, like other potentially returning boards, can technically just say "use everything from last time" and be set. And if you're /kind/ why wouldn't you? You fucking won.
>>430 /sp/ has some decent progress on their team as well though it's hard figuring out how that board is sometimes
>>430 also /bane/ has a full team made with kits and all
>>416 /sp/ and /lego/ have accepted the invitation but were still talking about it /cuckquean/ wants in but they're too few and don't know how to handle it
>>437 I really hope /monster/ and /lego/ go up against each other.
>>430 /librejp/ is a maybe too, but they probably need their thread bumped
>>440 If you can speak even a little of Jap, please explain it to them in a way they can understand.
>>405 >>430 Just based on these participants, the cup is gonna be amazing. Doesn't really matter it's only 16 tbh.
>>430 If we manage to get less than an even number of teams or if we just stop at 16, I'd vouch for /tg/ and /kind/
>>430 Hasn't /fascist/ said they wanted in too? I'd love to see them up against /eris/.
>>448 I can defiantly help with /tg/ if there is a need for them
>>437 /lego/ looks enthusiastic enough, they've even made some nice uniforms and a crest.
>>447 This. Maybe even better with 16, since there are less filler teams who don't care.

>>416 >Floridachan didn't they died? >french boards looking forward to /fra/ vs /ita/ showdown.
>>410 >looking for models 4chan's /toy/ has a ORANGE TRANSPARENT CHAINSAW model and one or two others. I did not expect to find judy hopps on /toy/ of all boards https://implyingrigged.info/wiki//toy/_Roster if they were on the team at any time during the seasons they ran PES2017, you/someone could more-or-less just pull the character and repackage it for your team.
>>463 >looking forward to /fra/ vs /ita/ >posts /islam/ vs /ita/
>>461 If we have weird numbers of teams we can always eschew group stages and have fighting game styled double elimination brackets.
>>430 What about /y2k///retro/? They were in last time too.
>>469 If they want to be in, i'm all for it.
>>466 That doesn't sound as fun, because then half the teams only get one game. I'd rather add a few extra teams to round up. >>465 That makes zero sense, but it is actually /ita/ vs /ita/.

>>439 Would be a good match. There used to be an anon who made Lego monster girls, I wonder which team he would side with. >>461 Thanks anon. Turns out all those hours I spent in paint really paid off. >>464 Will look into making it a more generic Lego man so it could do as the basic model. If not we have the same player on our team anyways so we could 'borrow' it.

>>458 If you're gonna petition /tg/ go for it. You can also throw this in as part of your pitch. I had an idea for a d20 uniform design for them so I slapped it together for fun. Put /tg/'s logo on there and I think you've got a winner.

As we continue to progress and more teams enter themselves into the Cup, I'm putting the cutoff date for entries on July 3rd. Required for a valid entry is the following >Logo >Roster (Names and medals. Medals may be changed later as you develop your team strategy) >Kits (3 minimum, 1 home, 1 away, 1 GK) I'd also like the name of a Home Ground (stadium) if you haven't given one already. We are still working on figuring out Stadium Editing, but we can at least clear room for it in game and at worst re-color KONAMI Stadium for you.
>>551 For all teams that failed to submit medals, can we just have medals thrown at random (except Captains, which should be gold anyhow)?
>>567 Nah, you can submit them for the secondary deadline and its fine. Medals are a key piece of the team strategy so I'm flexible on that front.
>>576 Then what about the player cards and roles? Are we still doing those or are we just simplifying it with medals only?
>>430 Updating this list: /2hu/ /a/ /animu/ /ausneets/ /bane/ /bmn/ /christian/ /co/ /cyber/ /eris/ /fascist/ /ita/ /k/ /kind/ /lang/ /latecomfy/ /lego/ /mecha/ /mecha/ /monster/ /otter/ /sp/ /test/ /tg/ /toy/ /wooo/ /yuri/ /zchan-v/ These are all the boards that, more or less, answered the call and provided the bare minimum of the required items. Am I missing anyone else?
>>588 Errata Corrige /2hu/ /a/ /animu/ /ausneets/ /bane/ /bmn/ /christian/ /co/ /cyber/ /eris/ /fascist/ /ita/ /k/ /kind/ /lang/ /latecomfy/ /lego/ /loomis/ /mecha/ /monster/ /otter/ /sp/ /test/ /tg/ /toy/ /wooo/ /yuri/ /zchan-v/ Which gives us a total of 28 teams currently available to play. We need at least another 4 for a proper tournament. Hypothetically, if we don't get enough boards in, we can use the extra boards: >/todd/ >/genesis/ >/just/ >/b/ Though in the case of /b/ I'd rather see if some website's /b/ wanted to join as a team rather than using the outdated team.
>>597 Apparently /cuckquean/ is halfway through, I'll count them in if they give me the okay.
>>597 You forgot /japan/ seems to be in: >>525
>>599 Ah, shoot, you're right. This means there's about 3 spots available before we can wrap up at 32. Obviously even with more people we could find some solution, but I don't foresee many more teams joining.
Open file (70.46 KB 1000x1000 ClipboardImage.png)
>>1 Somebody suggested we gave you a heads up that we're interested, so just letting you know PLW /toy/ is slowly getting there. There's only 2 of us working on it so if we don't get it done in time we'll wait till the next cup, but hopefully we get everything sorted before then.
>>608 Thanks buddy
>>597 >>588 Just when I think I have everything caught up these posts happen. Alright just some commentary on specific teams on the list: >/2hu/ Possibly involved in a Voltron super-team with /japan/ and /bane/ I wanna see how that plays out. >/bane/ See /2hu/ >/co/ I don't know where their board is still, and last I heard they were still a little cold to the idea >/cyber/ Haven't heard from the anon who started that thread since. Not a big deal since they do have everything they need for now though. >/fascist/ Still need to put together kits >/k/ Still need two more kits from them >/japan/ See /2hu/ >/kind/ Currently in board limbo, as their spot was taken down by the admin. Stuck in their bunker but they do have everything needed. (Note I do not want to run this without the defending champs, so I really hope things get stable on their end) >/loomis/ Need their kits >/tg/ The one anon in this thread said he'd be willing to run /tg/ but the board was lukewarm. Feels like a situation where someone just needs to up and do it. >/v/ Currently figuring out their board clusterfuck. I'm fine with them just running as /v/ but there's a ton of moving parts. >/yuri/ Again I think they're good, the board response just wasn't as enthusiastic. The anons who were in charge previously are quite busy I've heard. I checked out /cuckquean/ and they're progressing well, so they should be ready by the first deadline. There's also /sw/ who has their team from previous and they're becoming active again, so I'll see what they're up to.
>>612 >/kind/ Hello, I'm the old and new BO of /kind/. We don't have many people on our board, but I would still like to participate. Can we just use our old kit? Honestly, I think it would be unlucky to change anything about it after a win.
>>614 Of course! Glad to have you on board.
>>614 Where exactly are you guys at? Still on julay? Anyhow, talking about the dormant teams: >/argentina/ There are several places where argies are hanging out. It's either their own imageboards, or some places over 8kun/9chan. >/b/ Obviously there's no individual /b/, but several of them all over the place. We could just single out one of them, but they'll probably want to create their own team. >/baphomet/ No idea where they're at or if they're even going to care, not touching this. >/ck/ /oven/ could supply a team for them, other than that don't know where they're at. >/cow/ I don't see them joining any time soon, they responded half heartedly to the thread and I suppose they'll be a burden more than a help. >/cuteboys/ No idea where they are. >/fit/ Very small and on Julay, but we could give it a go. >/furry/ I remember them being on Julay, can't see any furry activity though and don't know where they went. >/gamergate/ boards Some people at 8moe asked to have GG as a separate team from /v/ proper. While this is unconventional, since they do not have their own board, we could still seek their aid to make another team.
>>617 >>>/kind/ is here on cafe
>>597 It seems /librejp/ might finally be starting to prepare something. https://sportschan.org/librejp/res/26538.html
>>617 We're pretty close to 32 teams, so it might be best to hold off and let the boards currently working just play things out organically.

>>624 technically (and only technically) speaking, Erischan was invited on their /b/ board, never /eris/.
>>624 I'm feeling like not inviting any /b/ right now, /b/ is meant to represent the spirit of its host board and currently I wouldn't know which one to pick. /eris/ was invited from their /b/ because it was their most active board, same with the Frenchies
>>617 I mean /gamergate/ has been it's own team without a proper board before but honestly if we're having a gamergate team I'd much rather the return of /dose/
Reminder: /librejp/ has completed their basic requirements
>>638 Make sure someone makes a thread here
>>551 By unanimous decision (1 voted for, 0 voted against) /eris/ is naming its stadium 'None'.
>>597 Not sure what part of /tg/ ignoring you thought you should run us. Sounds like you have lots of people, think we're sitting this one out.
>>653 Make up your mind, guys. Some told me /tg/ wanted in, some told me they didn't.
>>655 Well sure don't see anyone else here. That will be a big fat , out. Thanks.

There is one week left to submit your board's entry to the Infinity Cup! The teams that are currently entered are as follows: /2hu/ /a/ /animu/ /art/ /ausneets/ /bane/ /bmn/ /christian/ /cuckquean/ /eris/ /fascist/ /ita/ /japan/ /kind/ /lang/ /latecomfy/ /lego/ /librejp/ /loomis/ /mecha/ /monster/ /otter/ /sp/ /sw/ /test/ /v/ /wooo/ /yuri/ Other teams that still need to complete their entries (and what they need to complete the entries) are as follows: /k/ (Two more kits and their medal players) /toy/ (Roster, One more kit) If you don't see your board name here it means I had no idea you were working on an entry. Post in this thread ASAP
Edited last time by SKF on 07/04/2020 (Sat) 17:13:18.
>>682 Are all the teams at the bottom getting kicked from the cup if they don't have the rest of their entry stuff finished in a week?
>>683 Not necessarily. We've had teams fail to submit required pieces before the final deadline, so other teams who had kept working and were waiting in the wings got in instead. There's also the issue of numbers not being nice and even so we'll see how it all stacks up.
I made a couple of quick amendments in >>>/comfy/ which I believe will allow us to qualify. They are of course subject to change.
What's the policy on helping multiple teams? I'm the rep for my homeboard and made our roster and strategy, is it still alright for me to help other boards develop their teams?
>>686 Which two teams? Is this the /japan/-/bane/ situation?
>>687 Nah, I'm rep for /eris/ and occasionally browse a few of the boards on that list that don't really know what they're doing.
>>686 The more you can help and contribute, the better. Not every board has someone who knows/cares enough to make stuff for their team.
>>716 If you feel like lending a hand, go ahead and reach out, just make sure you let them know that you're a rep from another team. Basically what >>719 said
Hello, I’m new to this thing so could anyone give me a basic rundown on this competition?
>>733 Create a team full of players based on board culture for a tournament. Create a logo, uniforms, and strategies for your team to play virtual divegrass in PES 2017 against other boards and their teams. That's the quick and dirty explanation.
>>734 Interesting, I’ll see what I can do for a few boards
>>682 /loomis/ has just made a kit, a roster and a logo Cooking up the second one shouldn't be too hard
>>682 So it's 20 teams ready, plus /cuckquean/ and /sw/ totals 22. How many more do we need?
>>759 24 is a safe number. It's easily broken down and manageable, things would run like they did the last Cup. 32 is the next safe number after that though. Anything in-between will leave a certain number of boards in a sort of limbo.
>>761 Looks like /co/, /ita/ and /loomis/ bring us past 24.
>>785 I think it was mentioned already within the thread that /todd/ and /genesis/ can be used as backup teams if we need more. Also, we should wait for other places to join in too.
>>789 We could always use those two and wait for one of the teams mentioned beforehand to join as the 28th. We could have just 7 groups.
>>790 Either that, or remove some teams with literally no fan interest from their board.
>>823 like who?
>>836 I don't know yet and don't want to accuse without proof, although IIRC there were a few teams that had rosters and kits from last year but little-to-no enthusiasm. Like /kind/, but they are the host so it's different. It's may not be a good idea though because one real fan is enough to warrant a team imo.
Alright, so I'll be going around to the various boards that are participating and updating them with the schedule and what not. I've been a bit busy lately, so I can usually only check in on things at night, but hopefully things calm down as we get closer to kickoff, which is currently slated for August 7th.

Progress Update Every team has their kits in the game and working. Each one needs a few tweaks, mostly just to names/numbers on the back because you can't see how they line up until they're put onto the field. Here's a shot of /lego/'s and /cuckquean/'s. ALSO Stream Saturday. Mostly just a test to see how Bitwave behaves, as Cytube and Twitch currently do not have their collective shit together. The ad up in the event space on cafe now. I've gone around to other boards to advertise. Again, Saturday July 18, 2CDT 3EDT 19:00UTC on https://cytu.be/r/8cup
Edited last time by SKF on 07/15/2020 (Wed) 21:26:42.
>>913 >Every team has their kits in the game and working. Those are looking great! Does /loomis/'s home kit look alright? I tested /cuckquean/s kit (props!) but didn't bother testing looms for some reason. >Stream Saturday. Will there be a test match or something?
>>915 >test match Friendlies would be fun.
>>915 >>921 We'll run a couple test matches, talk shit, have some fun.
>>915 Oh, and yes. All of /loomis/'s kits look good.
>>913 Just a heads up, the link to the stream you've used in all the messages leads to this: https://cytu.be/r/8cup. , which should be https://cytu.be/r/8cup . I'm sure everyone will realise this come the stream, but just thought I'd let you know.

Do you guys still want kits for /k/? If it's not a ton of work beyond MS paint bullshit on a template, I can put together some uniforms.

>>1067 They may have lost but certainly have you beat in the chaos department. I don't think there's a more chaotic board out there right now.
>>1076 I'd say /cow/ is the most chaotic board right now. Other than 1 thread on /japan/ the rest of it is just easy posting and playing video games together. Most of the chaos is caused by outsiders. Those same outsiders are currently eating themselves on their home board right now.
Just a reminder you have less than a week to finish up tactics and player cards. If you are having any difficulties or are worried no one will step up, leave a post in your thread on /icup/. I have an anon on standby willing to put something together for teams who need help. If you're a team who has participated in a previous Cup and you have not explicitly let me know you're sticking with your strats from last time, do so ASAP, as it cuts down on the work I'll have to do in the week after the Draw Stream. If you've already done so, kick back, take it easy and wait for the draw stream. Draw Stream is August 1st, 2PM PDT, 4PM CDT, 5PM EDT, 21:00 UTC. Mark that calendar. As well, we're still accepting adboards for use during the tournament, visit the dedicated adboard thread on /icup/ and post them there.
>>1080 What can we expect to see in the draw stream?
>>1091 We'll be drawing teams from a hat (physical or virtual, I've yet to decide) to determine the Groups for the Cup. Last time we played a couple of friendlies afterwards, might do the same again, we'll see.
>>1080 Wait I thought I had until the 8th to finish this whole team modding thing.
>>1123 For the strategies, I'm asking for them a week prior to start that way I can properly input them in-game. If there's still a cosmetic model or some other that you're touching up in Blender, it's fine to submit it a bit late.

In an unprecedented turn of events, the Golden Boot will be shared by not 2, but 3 players: Alfred Legosen (/lego/), Ammit (/monster/), and Cuckquean-tan (/cuckquean/). Each player scored 6 goals officially through the Cup, fitting, giving it was the 6th edition. Thank you to every anon who chipped in throughout the Cup, and thank you especially to all the anons who took the time to tune in. We'll see you for ICUP 7!

I couldn't make it to the big matchday but I'm eagerly awaiting the uploads, especially the showdown for third place.
>>1595 Thanks for the link. >Golden Screw Although it ended up being meaningless, /bane/'s first game may be worthy (played two half games, won both halves 1-0 each, rematch was 0-0) /eris/'s first match was a screw due to having an outdated roster despite on-time submission, but there is no evidence they would have had a better result with the correct roster. >Platinum Lube /eris/ on both the goal concession criterias, I believe total count is tied with /monster/ on 13 who certainly personified the butthurt section after losing a single group stage match, despite having already qualified. If it could go to a player and not a team, St. John for attempted murder. >The Un-Fair Play Star of David Award /cow/ are no longer a team...

>>1602 Unfair Play star has to go to either /cuckquean/ for fouling in the first minute in a few of their matches or /christian/ for being red carded, especially as both Teams were the heels of the cup Though I'd probably give it to /cuckquean/ as they made it a lot furtherer
>>1605 a few things, though the thick of it was I was running the cup in a time of my life where not only was I moving out (As I was given a notice to move out of my place when the cup had heaps of progress made and I figured I had time) as well as things like me getting impromtu invited to a mates 21st party and getting way to on the beers to be able to drive to the place I was moving out of that had my computer and internet in order to run the cup, which meant delays Didn't help that /christian/ won the cup, so it honestly wasn't my proudest moment, though there is a very small chance I may host an exhibition tournament based on AFL if SKF isn't hosting the next cup in a bit to fill up the time, as COVID means no spontaneous parties and also there is a pause on evictions here so even if they wanted me gone I still should be good Though would have to do a fair few test streams first
whilst special snowflake can't be anyone BUT /eris/

Would be quite a fun time, indeed. >>1602 Seconding /bane/'s Golden Screw /eris/ definitely got Lubed since they scored a ton and didn't even manage to win once, while at least /monster/ got through several stages. The Un-Fair Play Star of David Award should ironically go to /fascist/ themselves for their unsportsmanlike attitude within anon.cafe but it may just be a bunch of D&C shills. Would still be fun to give it to them just cause. Another contender could be /japan/ but despite being usually pretty good at shitposting outside the cup, they acted remarkably good. >The Special Snowflake Plaque Definitely a fair fight between /eris/ and /otter/, but I'd give it to /eris/ just cause of how much effort they put in their shitpost and since they gifted us the first meme of the cup (/icup/ being a glowop). If we could though I'd rather give 'em both. >The Jade Clock For me, that spectacular comeback on /ausneets/ vs /cuckquean/, /lang/ beating /christian/ or /monster/ vs /cuckquean/ I'd also like to add an award for the team that placed 'LAST in the cup, solely because /kind/ really got screwed out of their title. >>1620 /liberty/ basically died. /monarchy/ is still there but their heart just isn't into it anymore.
>>1626 >Would still be fun to give it to them just cause. I mean, advocating for the genocide of players they don't like is unsportsmanlike.
>>1626 >I'd also like to add an award for the team that placed 'LAST in the cup Traditionally there is the Wooden Spoon. 4CC celebrate that honor. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wooden_spoon_(award) https://implyingrigged.info/wiki/Wooden_Spoon_Match_History (the 4CC equivalent of the Reddit match)
Nice to see so much discussion around the awards. I'm working on cutting up the livestreams as we speak, so expect those before the end of the week. >>1591 I'll be counting up stats for assists and the relevant numbers for goalies. Golden Ball is going to be difficult, I like to have all points tallied before I decide, but there's someone I have in mind. >>1602 >>1604 >>1605 >>1608 In the description for the Golden Screw, I do point out that two teams deserve recognition for getting screwed in Cups 3 & 4. Consider it an unofficial awarding to them, given that they inspired the trophy. My thought for Golden Screw was actually going to be /late/ & /comfy/'s GK. He got that own goal tagged on him and the result ended up eliminating his team, which I thought was ridiculously harsh. As for Platinum Lube, it's difficult, because some of the more successful teams play more games which is an opportunity to give up more goals. The way the award is written, it's meant to recognize the worst defensive team, and simply looking at most GA may not actually find that worst team. >>1606 >>1602 Star of David / /leftypol/ Sportsmanship award might be one of those ones I open up to a team OR a player, given the variety of things that can happen in the course of the Cup. St. John's last minute murder is an early favorite. Like >>1625 says though, it's meant to be for something COMPLETELY egregious. >>1615 Nice 'hus. Thank you. >>1602 >>The Aquamarine Microphone Solo, wewladwew and the commentator with the european accent :^) wewladwew was not on commentary for this cup. >>1626 >>1628 I don't want to use the Wooden Spoon name. It should be recognized but with a different title.
>>1630 If the Aquamarine Microphone is to become relevant, then we're gonna have to start gathering new commentators from the different boards somehow.
>>1626 >/liberty/ basically died. /monarchy/ is still there but their heart just isn't into it anymore They should come to the Cafe
>>1631 I do want a wider pool of commentators for the next Cup. That way there's always multiple options on standby, like for the days myself or Solomon can't be there.
>>1633 I honestly want Monouncer to be an announcer if possible. I've only heard him speak once but it was enough to know he'd be good for the role.
Maybe add close nominees for awards on the wiki as bullet-points for anyone wanting to find highlights.

Ultimately all awards not counting goal tally are subjective and must be set by the rigging team, as per the rules. >I don't want to use the Wooden Spoon name. It should be recognized but with a different title. How about the Mark Mann Award for Excellence on the Pitch? Or the Good Guys Award, since they finish last?
>>1633 >>1631 I think we should rather have more competitions and let more hosts in, but they should still use the same export as the main riggers.
how do I become a rigger?
>>1652 You gotta be able to stream the game and to host a cup. So you gotta have a pc that can run PES and have the blessings of the rigging committee, which is super hard and it involves the arduous task of creating a thread and asking them. Also, you have to update the wiki with stats and record footage for safekeeping.
Updates from SKF: Round of 16 matches are up on NekoBar as of this post. Before the night is done, the links will be in the match summaries on the Cup 6 wiki page. I'm retiring my old "@ 8chan dot co" email in favor of the cock.li address. It's just been frustrating to use, I assume because "cock.li" trips fewer alarms on other email hosts compared to the other address. So contact me there if you can't get me via the board. All work towards the next Cup, as of now, is on pause. I'm still working on cleanup, Awards, and record-keeping from this Cup. Once all that is done, I will be taking a break from things. For the boards that are lobbying to enter for the next one, please do not let this dampen your enthusiasm. Keep working on your team's logos, players, OC etc. and keep your respective boards involved. I won't be gone for long, and I'll still be shitposting in my various haunts around the webring.
>>1680 Update to the update: NekoBar doesn't like my cut of the /2hu/ /yuri/ match, so I'll need to re-encode it. Moving on to the Quarterfinals in the meantime so you'll start to see those in the playlist as well.
Does anyone know why all these boards are suddenly entering? It's not a complaint, I just don't understand why there is suddenly a widespread spike in interest once it ended.
>>1684 Obviously they saw how much fun we were having and want in on it. Too bad they're all gonna have to wait a year now.
>>1685 >a year Not necessarily, AFAIK all you need is someone who gets the blessings of the head riggers and we could have an Infinity Cup a day for all we know. Also we got a lot more viewers than usual, at least for the initial phases of the cup. Of note is that we invited like six different imageboards, so people were inclined to check it out.
>>1684 Probably this >>1685 but also there were some teams that wanted to join but couldn't meet the first deadline.
>>1684 >Does anyone know why all these boards are suddenly entering? For /dup/ it seems there was a single guy trying to hype it up, the other ones not so sure. I'm happy to see some extra participation though. Could use a helping hand or two.
>>1687 It'd be nice if it could at least be a half-yearly rhythm, I feel like the hype engine doesn't like being parked for long periods. Maybe this cafe could even host its own little championship. If my computer were good enough...
>>1691 That being said, I wouldn't want to be demanding too much from the riggers. I mean, it's not like they get paid or anything.
>>1691 Well, if you look at the earlier cups, you'll notice that the biggest issue had to do with the site, not the board dwellers. Now that we no longer use a centralized system but are rather spread all around the web (and might I add, us at /icup/ HQ have our own bunkers as well), we are much more secure, so even if an entire imageboard dies, its users can just mosey on over the bunker's cup.
>>1691 >Maybe this cafe could even host its own little championship. If my computer were good enough... If the riggers wanted to wait a whole year, I was proposing a friendly match near Christmas. If my internet were good enough. (<1mbps upload)
I think the ideal would be to have a system like UEFA & Conmebol, the only leagues that matter. With an annual /icup/ as main and most important event, and a secondary friendly/lesser annual Cup with a separate history and stats. This one could be a test field for veteran teams, new teams, other riggers, other commentators, another trophy. There are not enough teams yet for us to need a classification system, but it could be useful for that too, in the future. The important thing is that 2 recognizable competitions per year sound like a realistic schedule, capable of maintaining the hype. With a 3-sides mini-tournament between both last teams and /reddit/, and a friendly between the 2 champions. Also plenty of test streams with random managers signing up their teams for friendlies. Having the distinction in importance means that the main board of the Cup only needs to manage one tournament per year, and provide random assistance like they always do anyways. It doesn't matter (so much) if the lesser tournament is a little fucked-up. >>1695 >1mbps up Yeah, you're gonna need more than that.
>>1697 That's a good idea actually. Maybe the lesser cup could just be all the teams that didn't make it to the knockouts in the main cup.
>>1697 I like this idea. The /icup/ is the main event but we could still have some fun, even if it's not categorized as Infinity Cup. One idea I had was to have Imageboard specific leagues, where IBs with enough boards/teams could play among themselves and those who don't have as many could play in a manner similar to what the USA and Canada do with their sports.
>>1698 I like this idea, as it gives more games to those who could have been screwed by luck.
I like the idea, but I wonder what would the streaming schedule be if the racing idea gets finally implemented (or any other game ideas related to the Cup)
The idea up there would leave a 3 months gap between the preparations for each tournament, even with setting a whole month aside for general deadlines (which I think is generous enough). I was planning on filling that gap with random friendly tournaments that everyone is suggesting, apart from the two main competitions (which have a difference between them, too). Since the schedule for those tests and friendlies has no need to be strict, I believe you could fit all the other sports tournaments in the gaps, don't you think?
>>1707 Yesss do itttt
>>1707 That's perfect then
Open file (10.82 KB 168x200 sr.jpg)
>>1707 I think the side tournament should be different from the main one, in the way it plays out. It should not have the same kind of rounds and points, etc. Otherwise it's just the same thing. What I mean is that neither tournament should diminish the uniqueness of the other. Maybe the side tournament can be more experimental or even more rigged :)
>>1708 Well, the first thing to do would be to form the first edition of the alternative team of riggers & commentators as soon as possible (basically when the people who wanna do it figure out their general capabilities & bandwidth). That way they can decide if we should have the first lesser tournament this year or later, the rest of the schedules can be figured out then. >>1709 >perfect The reason it looks that way is because those leagues I mentioned have a shit ton of history, so they've already tested out all kinds of formats and schedules, and we know the results they had in different situations. At different points in history, and in different levels of growth, which is the most useful thing for us. That way, we have plenty of examples at how we should manage a lot of the things that may come up. >>1710 That would be up to the various riggers, having many of them we should be able to see some variety of things. I'm expecting a lot of experimenting at first, until we figure out the most fun formats, while the volunteers gain some experience and have their fair share of fuck-ups. Personally, I'd rather the two main competitions keep similar formats, with the lesser one having a bit more leeway, and all the other minicups being completely free and up to whatever the circumstantial organizers feel like. But what do I know. I'm just happy to see that there's a lot of people (including me) ready to throw ideas at whatever rigger does the job, obviously we'll be very thankful to organizers, as usual. Also, RIP neko bar?
>>1713 NekoBar is up again as of right now
>>1713 >I'd rather the two main competitions keep similar formats Of course, they could just be the summer cup and the winter cup.
>>1713 What about a double elimination tournament, sort of what fighting games do? It's much faster to set up, allows for way more teams to participate without having to worry about league standings and every match counts, unlike some bouts among already eliminated teams.
>>1716 Those could be fun for friendly tournaments, but I wouldn't like that for the cups. I put a lot of effort into my team and some others, so I'd be disappointed if they only played one game every six months, half the time.
>>1720 It could lead to multiple tournaments, though. You're guaranteed 2 matches per tournament per team, but if there's like 2-3 tournaments per season you get a minimum of 6 matches per season.
>>1716 Well I didn't know much about this, but sure enough, those leagues have precedents for that too. The reason I insist so much with them is because you don't just need to choose what teams get to participate in a tournament, you also need a whole set of rules and instructions on how to handle special situations, like home teams and yellow cards and tie-breakers and such. Having professional precedents means that we only have to go and check those every time a special situation comes up, making it quite easier to organize things. As for the suggestion, I don't think it could be used for the two main cups, but it sounds like a very neat way to choose teams from them for pre-established friendly tournaments. And we'll be needing a lot of those between intervals in my opinion. Alternative tournaments where random managers just sign up their teams, or with whatever set of rules for classification you can think of, all of them are welcomed. The important things are to have fun and to have /test/s. I'll say this again: the first thing we need is for volunteer riggers to actually figure out if they can start setting up stuff and prepare the first set of alternative organizers. Now, as for /yuri/... Thanks rigger for finally putting up our match with /2hu/, I needed that!! We have a little problem now, our staff is still quite busy irl, and we currently lack many of the assets we need to prepare our team for the next time. Could you please post our Player Cards in our thread back at smug/yuri/, together with a list of the available models we already have and who are they assigned to? Pretty please, we don't have that info right now, and we need it to update the roster a little and find more models for the next Cup. I don't know if there are still some models being worked on by blenderfags, but we're not even sure which are already done, yet.
UPDATE All match videos are now viewable on NekoBar. I am slowly (slowly) posting game stats on the stage pages of the Cup (e.g. http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Infinity_Cup_6_Group_A ) I should have the awards counted and well, awarded before those stats all go up on the wiki.
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.

>>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 /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.

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.
