[this was originally the OP post]
Scroll down on this post for a list of teams participating in the next cup
Currently 30 Teams have joined and 2 need to complete their teams to participate
Submissions are still open (if a team won't finish their export we will just replace it) but even if we reach the maximum number, extra teams will still see some action!
Alright folks, I've waited for what it feels like an eternity and I've yet to receive any message from SKF, so it can be assumed that he's permanently MIA. Given that, I want to have a chat with you guys on the realistic chances of getting this show on the road.
For starters, given how low the webring is interconnected compared to the last couple of years, I think it's in our best interests to ignore the "only webrings + 8ch" rule that was previously imposed. This means that we'd unban teams that used to cause problems (/leftypol/, /cow/) as well as allow any imageboard that feels committed enough to participate as their own team (as opposed to individual boards). This would in turn bring us a bit more viewership and participation than the old cup, which basically had just three boards editing wikis and rosters with custom models and whatnot. I want this tournament to feel like a party, not just a circlejerk.
Secondly, we lack a lot of resources. To have a tournament, here's the bare minimum we need:
>Min. 1 Host, in charge of running and streaming the game
>Min. 2 Color Commentators (both to check eventual rigging and to monitor both chat and game), a host could double as a commentator
>Min. 2 riggers to check that stats are appropriately loaded in
>Min. 1 guy to record
>Some anons advertising in a non shilly manner the event
I sadly cannot be a reliable host as I can run PES, but the time zones when I could stream are kind of limited so at best I could offer token support.
Finally, there's the issue of the game. We could still use PES as our baseline, and just take the exports from previous years and add and modify teams as we please. On the other hand, I think having some other game to use would also help dissociate our group from the 4chan Cup. I say this cause with PES we require a minimum of 8 active teams, whereas I don't know if other games can fit the bill or even allow for easier access to modding tools.
Let me know what you guys think of this.
Tentative list of applicable teams (with links):
- Touhou Project
- Animu and Mango
- Latin American Cartoon & Comics
- Art Discussion and Shitposts
- Streaming So-bad-it's-good movies
- British board
- Female Cuckholdry

- (Good) Movie streams and appreciation
- Indonesian board
- Discussion of the Islamic faith
- Italian board
- Funposting and Autism
- Weapons and War
- Kind friends
- participating as /latecomfy/, anonymous safe for work lounges

- Otter appreciation board
- Racoon appreciation board
- General discussion, with thread-specific rules and css
- 1990s and 2000s internet nostalgia
- Sports discussion board
- Star Wars
- Girls' romance board
As a general rule, I'd like for the next tournament to feature at least half the teams from the top 20 most active boards of the Webring / 8chan, in order to ensure at the bare minimum some viewership, as opposed to some matches from yesteryear where we could get anything from ten to fifty concurrent viewers.
If we used some other game like a Wrestling one or a Tennis one, where less players need to be edited, we could effectively allow much more boards to participate, as we won't end up with scenarios where an empty board wins against all the major ones all the time.
