Official GCUP Thread Supporter 12/11/2020 (Fri) 23:16:17 No.2059
FINALLY, without further ado it's time to OFFICIALLY announce the GCUP, an exhibition tournament to crown a champion among the webring's national representatives! Format currently TBA, it will be either bracket style (Single or Double Elim) or a Group Stage tournament. Whichever one we go with mostly depends on the total # of teams involved. As previously mentioned, we'll also be hosting friendlies for teams not in the GCUP. These games will either be by the ICUP book, or "enhanced" with a random, meme ruleset. First matchday is tentatively February 13th. I was considering end of January, but with the holidays coming up, it's likely no serious progress will be made on very many fronts, so we'll kick things into gear come January and be ready for February. Matchdays will consist of some amount of exhibition games and then a number of GCUP matches after that. To enter your team officially, please post in the thread with your board and its site, and indicate what you want to enter for. If you'll be a GCUP team, please let me know what nation you'll be representing. If you've started work already, either on this board, or on your home board, please include links to the work in your post, otherwise, just let me know where it will be posted. The team must be created in accordance to ICUP rules. Lastly, if you're willing to take the charge for your given board, please send me an email (SKF at cock dot li) so I have a direct line to you. I still aim to avoid namefaggotry as much as possible, but this is a necessary evil to keep communication neat and orderly. If you wish to enter a team for the friendlies, same thing, please provide a link to the posts/thread where your work is. Please also request your match preference (ICUP rules or meme rules) and, if you wish, a potential opponent. Depending on how long the GCUP festivities run though, we may not be able to accomodate all requests, so bear that in mind. Meme rulesets used for these friendlies will be determined at a date closer to the start of the event, so to keep expectations clear: To enter a team for a meme friendly I will need only team name, logo, 3 kits, anthems, player names, and their default positions. Strategies will not be needed, but any additional submissions (game balls, player models, stadiums, etc) are accepted. If you're a pre-existing team I can just take your team from ICUP6 and adjust it accordingly. I had been planning for a streamlined method of submitting teams, but it's not ready yet. Hopefully this will be the last Cup we go with this scattershot method of submitting teams and strategies. I'll likely edit this post to add more info as it comes up but for now this is it. I'll be making a couple of tracking posts underneath this one for quick topic reference.

As has been brought up previously, we are also looking to expand our commentary booth for this Cup. As of now, myself and Oxford are the only two who can/have hosted the matches, while we've had others who have joined in for banter/commentary. The deficit is obviously in the commentators of the former variety, so if you can/are willing, we'd love to give you a test run. What you'll need to be a main commentator is as follows: >A computer that can handle streaming >A mic of decent quality (Bare minimum: $2 chinese mic from that one mall nearby that openly sells all the bootleg shit but never gets shut down, AKA the ICUP5 Special.) >Two controllers (or one controller and a keyboard splitter) >Strength to resist the urge to riggy-diggy >Willingness to sit in one spot for 4+ hours, while queuing up music and autistically simulating divegrass >Jitsi Meet >A voice that isn't grating >Functioning vision, enough to see what's going on on-screen and talk about it. And that's about it. If you just want to sit in the booth and verbally shitpost, you obviously won't need anything other than the last three. We're also looking for ways to improve our current standard of streaming. As of now, screen sharing via Jitsi gives the other commentators a crisp 1.25 frames per second view of the match as it happens. We haven't tried the rigcam set up just yet (i.e. pointing a webcam at the screen like a bunch of savages) but if you have any other ideas we'd love to hear them. Suggest Skype or Discord and I will fucking take you out by the ankles I'll be hosting a couple of private streams (Dates TBD) for aspiring commentators to see how you handle streaming a game. If you're interested, drop an email my way (SKF at cock dot li).
There are other ways to contribute to the Cup. OC is always accepted. We're also still looking for anons who are experienced in the ways of Blender to either create or steal rig up pre-existing models to the PES skeletons. PES also has room for custom game balls and stadiums, which are also handled by Blender. Tutorials exist for creating player models, stadiums, and balls thanks to the 4ddit Cup and the work of others. Anons have also created wipes (screen transitions) for use in-game, one anon purported to be working on music to be used as a Cup theme, there's really no limit if you want to contribute.

I would like to see /lego/ back in, but the board's dead. Does that mean /lego/ can't be entered? There's an anon doing some amazing blender work, I'm going to get some textures ready so hopefully every player has their own unique model.

We are excited to confirm that /ερις/ will be representing Greece in the GCUP Competition. Or maybe it was Poland... it's hard to know who we represent nowadays.
>>2059 /lang/ here, put us in
>>2059 >random, meme ruleset Do they still have bighead modes? Other than that, are those Indiachan and Indonesianons going to participate in some way?
>>2059 With the addition of 8ch.moe to the webring, does it mean that all boards created under it count towards Infinity Cup eligibility tickets?
>>2078 Bighead mode might have been a >FIFA only thing. I would assume it possible in PES with some model fuckery though. Also, I'm letting in the indians and indonesians because this is a meme tournament. ICUP is still gonna stay within our usual circle. >>2079 8ch/co/ and /v/ were both involved in ICUP6.
>>2080 What about /ck/?
>>2081 They can be in, I was just pointing out that 8moe boards have already been involved in prior Cups.
>>2067 >>2070 Hey, we decided we want in the proper game after all, so if you could us in the otticial teams, that'd be just great.

>>2096 I have some time, so when decided can you please bump your thread with requests and I'll see what I can do. Also, I sent an email to SFK a while ago re: modelling. Was it received or was cockmail broken (yet again)?
>>2059 /hyper/ here, can we join?
If another national board that wasn't on the webring or that is on 8chan tried to join, would you allow it?
>>2099 Yes, we're letting in non-webring boards for this as it's an exhibition Cup. >>2097 >Was it received or was cockmail broken (yet again) Take a guess. Just try sending me another email. >>2098 >>2096 Yer in
/cuckquean/ would like to join as well.
>>2097 >>2100 I tried replying. >Sender address rejected: gtfo Ah god I love email.

>>2104 noice
>>2060 so how many are still needed for a proper start? we have 7 now, if we count /inch/ in that's 8, is that (theoretically) enough?
>>2111 8 is enough to consider it a-go. I'll adjust things as more enter, but 8 is a good minimum. /argentina/ wanted back in again too right? >>2108 I'll count it, sure.
>>2108 Yes, /kind/ is joining now. We will try to make it more competitive this time.
/japan/ wants in, representing Canada. Our beloved reporter can commentate too.
>>2111 When's the deadline for the national teams to confirm their participation?
>>2132 I'll say January 16th as the deadline for the GCup and February 1 for friendlies.

>>2137 Yes
>>2137 >>2138 They signed up for a friendly but submitted as a national team to even up numbers. We'll see if that was necessary as we approach the deadline.
Hello I am from indiachan we would like to participate thank you
>>2142 Yer' in lad.
>>2059 Is /britfeel/ not joining? I thought they were good to go.
>>2144 >>2144 Haven't heard from em since. If they're still good, I'll let them in.

>>2059 /dup/ here Let's go for one last btfo
>>2156 shove your pedophile site owner up your ass
>>2072 can you put /christian/ representing christendom?
Alright, so we are at 13 teams for the GCUP, which is an odd number. There's a couple of solutions to this, but I'm open to any idea I may not have thought of. Straightforward solutions include dropping /otter/ as a national team (they were a "just in case" national team, as per >>2070) or adding another board/country. There's also the possibility of me just running things with an odd number of teams as well.
>>2167 Well, you could just add those who didn't answer the call to get it up to 16 or just let some of the GCUP Friendlies in the cup itself. Maybe /lang/ could be #14? Or maybe we could invite more national boards from 8chan/8kun?
Open file (6.95 MB 3456x5184 IMG_2303.JPG.jpg)
>>2167 we'd rather stay in, but if there's no otter way then drop us
>>2167 Add /librejp/ if they aren't in yet.
>>2172 >>2172 They weren't interested in participating. They want to wait for the ICUP later in the year.
>>2167 /christian/ here, if it comes to it we could just play friendlies we'll get /islam/ in the summer
/britfeel/ want in, I think
Hey /icup/, an update after some radio silence. The current condition of shit has tried to grind me down something fierce, but I'm not letting it get in the way. With /christian/'s voluntary recusal from the GCUP proper, we have 12 teams set to compete for the GCUP. As for the friendlies, the move by /christian/ gives us at least 10 willing participants, with a few more I'm waiting on for confirmation. I've decided to move entirely to joke/meme friendlies, since there wasn't interest in ones played under ICUP rules. We'll be determining the draw for the tournament before the end of this week. Since we have 12 teams, I've decided to move forward with 4 groups of 3 teams, with the top team in each advancing to the Knockout Bracket. This guarantees each team at least two games, and keeps the main tournament at a brief 16 games. We'll be padding the days out with the friendlies whose gimmicks will be determined at the same time as the GCUP draw. I doubt I'll be streaming it live, but I will at least record and post it on the match archive as soon as it's ready. Stay tuned!
>>2062 Have you guys tried Tox? A couple of their clients have a screen-sharing option https://tox.chat/clients.html
>>2205 We'll be doing some testing this weekend. We'll see if it works any better.
Have we discussed who's going to host the tournament? /lang/ seems to be the obvious choice to me.
>>2228 Seconding. I also want to know if it'll be played at the same time as the previous cup.
>>2228 >>2233 Was thinking neutral site/no official host sort of situation, though I see the appeal of giving it to /lang/. As for times, I'm still on the same schedule as I was during the last Cup, so the games will be at the same times.
>>2241 >Was thinking neutral site/no official host sort of situation May I suggest to host the tournament at the Atlantic Accelerator?
>>2195 couldn't it be the top 2 teams?
>>2258 That would punt any friendlies on the final day. It would mean 8 knockout matches on Sunday the 21st. It's doable honestly.
Open file (907.15 KB 1280x1024 gcup groups.jpg)
The groups have been drawn and are as follows: >/otter/, /inch/, /ita/ >/eris/, /fscchan/, /japan/ >/argentina/, /britfeel/, /lego/ >/ausneets/, /dup/, islam/ That means the first matchday will have two friendlies (to be revealed tomorrow) followed by /otter/ vs. /inch/, /eris/ vs. /fscchan/, /argentina/ vs. /britfeel/, and /ausneets/ vs. /dup/. The proper schedule will be up on the wiki tomorrow, but again the times will be the same structure as the ICUP (Afternoon/Late Afternoon on the East Coast)

>>2260 LETS GOOOOO >>2195 Oh there's not gonna be a livestream?
Can you please officially yell at teams to make/fill the roster pages? Especially with non-English teams who we have little chance of pronouncing correctly, let alone providing relevant commentary.
>>2268 /islam/ here, God willing it'll be done this week.
>>2260 Protip: When announcing the times to each board, can you link to an event announcer? I use this one: https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedform.html It makes a link like this, which shows the times around the world and also (if JS is enabled) the date-time in your local timezone: https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=2021-02-13T19:30:00
>>2263 I meant the draw wouldn't be streamed. It wasn't tied to a bunch of exhibition matches like it was for ICUP 6 so I didn't see a point. I have a recording of the draw, and Oxford as a witness though, so everything was indeed above board. >>2270 Consider it done.

I'm a little throttled by the daily upload limit but I give it about 3 days max to get everything on there. Awards will be tallied shortly and posted both here and on the wiki. Thanks to all who tuned in, and we'll see you for ICUP7
