Infinity Cup 7 Preparation Thread CLERMONT FOOT 63 03/14/2021 (Sun) 18:35:41 No.2393
infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Infinity_Cup_7 Seems only natural to begin a new thread for the next cup. Although SKF gave us no plan on the wheres and whens other than Summer 2021, let's start conversing about what to keep and change in the next cup!
>>2393 Personally, I'd vote on putting participation status on hold for all the teams associated with 8chan/8kun until the dust has settled on Cake Kike's newest journalistic escapades.
>>2395 you know you don't have to discuss mark in EVERY SINGLE THREAD right?
>>2395 I'm mixed about this. On the one hand, I don't think we're such a valuable target and Acid himself has done absolutely nothing, it's all Mark's fault. On the other, I don't think that having a mixed /v/ team brought us any more viewers than if we had both. In fact, dare I say it? Sleepychan/v/ did much more for the nu/v/ team than Mark. I vouch for letting them in but either making two /v/s or allowing Zzzchan's /v/ only.

>>2396 Yeah. I just choose to. I like talking about Mark.
AAAAAA AAAAAAA okay this was epic

Alright quick words: Zero invitations have been sent out for Cup 7 so far, so I don't know who invited /pdf/ or /kong/. I am working on both moving the wiki to the new site and refreshing PES. Both are taking longer than anticipated for multiple reasons. Save all banter for the chat on game days. Don't clog threads with bullshit. I'll reveal dates for the Cup once I know what the hell my summer is going to look like. Edited to prove it's me.

>>2405 Would you mind if someone made unofficial tournaments in between cups?
>>2411 If you think you can figure out PES enough on your own, be my guest, host any exhibition thing you want.
>>2411 I'm happy to help out with organization or aesthetics if I find the unofficial tournament interesting enough, so I'd recommend announcing your plan well in advance, to gauge interest before putting effort in.
>let's start conversing about what to keep and change in the next cup! Once the new wiki is up and the game files are cleaned up, I would like to make a dedicated wiki page of proposed changes for the next cup, an ongoing to-do list. That way, anyone can easily add to it and they know whether or not we've forgotten about a suggestion made half-way through the second game.
>>2433 >I would like to make a dedicated wiki page of proposed changes for the next cup, an ongoing to-do list. Good thinking. Would also be good if we had a list of hostfags at the ready so we don't have to overload SKF every six months.
>>2393 Following the Nigger Fools Day prank, I'm forwarding a request to temporarily ban /japan/ from all future cups.
>>2451 what?
>>2451 Seconding this motion. >>2452 /japan/ 's BO somehow got janitor privileges on 8moe and wiped out two boards "as a joke".
>>2453 only 2?
>>2454 Apparently that's as far as he was able to go before being stripped of his privileges
>>2451 Veto. That's pretty based.
>>2451 I refuse to submit my own board to the cup nor advertise it in any capacity if /japan/ is allowed in further competitions. It's not as if we miss on anything, as it's just the personal army of one person, as opposed to some place where people share some sort of hobby.
>>2457 >I refuse to submit my own board to the cup nor advertise it in any capacity if /japan/ is allowed in further competitions. If you refuse to submit your board, I will create a /leftypol/ board to take its place. You're pulling some lame ass cancel culture bullshit right now.
>>2458 >Cancel culture >When one guy was literally cancelling boards I mean >>2457 was kind of a faggot for pulling this "well I'll take my ball and none of you can play!" shtick but holy shit anon
>>2458 I wouldn't mind /leftypol/ coming back. They should remove a star from their logo but other than that it's been so long since they were gone that their ban should be lifted. I wouldn't know WHICH /leftypol/ should join though, as like all good leftists they kind of fractured their asses their board into multiple instances, with Bunkerchan still the biggest and two other smaller IBs dedicated to their topics. Other than that there's also /leftpol/ as a shitpost board.

At any rate, I wonder what is SKF's opinion on this whole thing, as he's the one most involved with hosting and organizing this shit. Also, could this mess possibly be connected with that one guy who kept posting outdated invites to various boards?
>>2462 >I wouldn't mind /leftypol/ coming back. I don't see the issue either (would make for great matches against /fascist/) but I think SKF has very hard feelings about something from 5+ years ago. They've changed site twice since then lol. >with Bunkerchan still the biggest Pretty sure it isn't. Bunkerchan basically died due to negligence and leftover jannies wiping it, word on the street is that even the camwhore and dedicated /pol/ trolls moved over to .ogre >as like all good leftists they kind of fractured At least they practice what they preach and revolt against shitty leaders, I can respect that at least :^) have fun with the fractures lol. >>2464 anon.cafe /server/ /meta/ and /icup/ live a cursed life...
>>2465 >pic and he would have gotten away with it if it werent for you meddlin' footie hooligans!
>>2466 >but I think SKF has very hard feelings about something from 5+ years ago While they did have something to do with then-8chan becoming infamous and being deplatformed, the reason why they were barred from the cup is the fact they gave an export with an unfairly powerful goalkeeper and no one noticed until the last legs of the competition. The first cup though they won it fair and square. >.ogre This one comes as a surprise to me, as I recall they had a GETchan and a leftychan. Could you give me a link please?
>>2465 He'll probably just cancel it if it gets out of hand like this.
>>2472 he's too chill for that, he hosted one when we had no home whatsoever afterall
>>2465 >>2472 It's easy >be SFK >open anon.cafe >yay new posts! >fuck its just twenty posts of manufactured drama about other boards that has nothing to do with the actual ICUP >who cares but i have to write an official statement i guess >"I'm not going to kick a team out over moderation drama." SKF please rate my impression of your brain
>>2474 Sounds accurate. Although at that point if drama regarding outside boards should be ignored when hosting the tournaments, then even more reason to let /leftypol/ back if they want to, in some sort of capacity.
>>2475 I would argue though that /leftypol/ was permanently removed because they left the entirety of the Webring project and are thus unaffiliated with us. In a similar vein, SKF expressed disdain for adding boards outside of the current Webring's ones and has explained multiple times that the Infinity Cup is a competition for ex 8chan and webring boards exclusively, with the few guys who joined us from outside boards being convenient exceptions when numbers were not on our side. I find it hard to believe that /leftypol/ will ever be reintegrated in the Webring, let alone in the cup. 8moe was added in based on the positive feedback from some users and because several important boards (/v/. /co/, /pol/) migrated there, originally.

>>2451 >>2457 cakegag mad, webring bros glad
>finally some fresh posts nope, it's still dead.
>>2451 Right, I'll address this just so SKF can think of more important stuff, like the wiki movers and all. no I am not him, just the guy with the keys to this place Reviewing what has happened, it's pretty clear to me that it's got nothing to do with the cup or interactions between the webring at large and outside websites. For one thing, this incident is completely isolated to 8moe, had no lasting consequence given that the board hosted backups, was the result of the naivety of 8moe's administration (after all, they did make him a janitor in the first place, according to the /v/ threads about it) and most importantly it has absolutely nothing to do with the /icup/ or any other boards but /v/ and some porn board. Furthermore, /leftypol/ had been banned, as said by >>2468 on an issue related to the cup and because they were causing controversy within the cup itself, whether or not they were sabotaging 8kun, then named 8chan, is another matter entirely and should not concern us. I have locked /japan/'s thread as a precaution to avoid unnecessary spamming or vandalizing by the involved party, but if no other developments happen, I find it reasonable enough to unlock it. Now, with that out of the way, could we possibly, please, resume talking about the cup instead of some unrelated board drama?
>>2484 I do have a question related to the stream: given that Bitwave changed their embed settings halfway through last cup and SKF had to rely on a throwaway Twitch channel, I wanna ask whether Bitwave will have a second chance or they'll be using another streaming site.
Serves me right for not going onto the internet on April 1st. I've read everything that's gone down here in the last little bit and I indeed owe it to you all to chime in, so here goes. >April Fool's Day Prank Missed it completely. 8moe are retarded for letting an outside shitposter get privileges like that on their site. I have no real opinion on it the prank and fallout itself. I understand the animus towards the site: A lot of people feel like they should not have been added to the webring, many feel like their crossposters bring down their home board's quality, and there's the horseshit about the doc that recently, finally, debuted. 8moe anons feel like these slights are unfair towards them. Overall, things have been fine with them in the Cup. The autistic shitflinging has been within the usual bounds of a virtual divegrass tournament, and their crossover with zzz/v/ for the team in the last Cup can at least be described as 'somewhat amicable'. Unless this becomes a constant source of friction for myself, other important figures, and most importantly the fans, I'm leaving it as is. >/japan/ Pretty much ditto. The only issue that has come up with them so far is the couple of faggots that tried to gatecrash Day 1 of the last Cup. That went away pretty quickly (surprise, surprise) when the guys turned off Tor for the Cytube. I don't particularly blame Kime or the anons from /japan/ for those fags showing up. As long as that's the worst it gets, we can handle it. >Does this have anything to do with the guy posting outdated invites to various boards? I have doubts that it's related to what happened today. Just doesn't seem to fit the pattern of how that was happening. I'm no more happy about the invites than I was previously, and I'd prefer we cut that shit out ASAP. Again, as of this post, no invites have been sent out for ICUP 7. >/leftypol/ I really don't want to have to talk about these faggots again. Feel free to cap and save this portion of the post for future reference. As long as I'm commissioner of the Cup, /leftypol/ will not be allowed in. Some people misattribute this to their cheating from ICUP1, and the rumored cheating that lead to their victory in ICUP2. While that behavior is dubious, and they were rightly punished for it when it was proven, it's not the real reason. I am more focused on the fact that they happily and openly assisted in getting our home taken down. The Hapsburgian traitor in the wheelchair and his retarded lefty Discord faggot friends destroyed our hub, and by extension, took direct action against the Cup as well. They are not welcome. >Cancelling the Cup Fat chance right now. It's almost 100% sunk cost fallacy at this point I'd wager, but there's already been so many IRL things that the Cup has unintentionally dipped its hands into. I can't see something like this ever being a bother on par with the headaches I went through personally at times. >>2474 Basically 10/10, but you got my internal monologue wrong. It doesn't speak in that tone of voice, it speaks in this tone of voice. >Boards Outside the Webring My thoughts on that are in the other thread, but it can't hurt to say them again. This Cup was for 8chan and its anons. 8chan was murdered and the userbase is essentially a diaspora. It makes it tough, but the webring is our new home despite being a fluctuating entity. I'm still open to outside boards being let in for exhibition Cups and what not but not the ICUP because it's super srs after all. >Bitwave's shit We'll cross that bridge when we get there. I first need to learn how to mix audio. I know I'll have to edit this because I forgot something or accidentally a whole word, so just brace for the eventual proof it's really me.

[haven't read SKF post yet; in a rush] >>2484 I've managed to get player portraits working. We can also put gold/silver/bronze borders in the image or other helpful hints for things like super-subs.
>>2489 Thanks for clarifying. How's the wiki transfer going? >>2490 Great news.
>>2491 Templates are all moved over. Next is files, then the actual content. Slow process, but it is happening. >>2490 Nice. It'll be even easier to utilize this once Player IDs become standardized.
>>2489 I wouldn't really mind having /leftypol/ in as a sort of heel team, if you know what I mean. Maybe even as the joke team to beat at the end.
>>2524 I'd rather have /test/ again if it's done in this cup too.
