OK, here's the current situation. BO and the people who worked on the team previously are currently very busy irl, even if they can still be reached. So I'll be making sure the team has everything it needs to participate and will do my best to support it throughout the tournament. There is not that much enthusiasm back in the board, but that's just what happens when you read so much drama with a hint of depression for years. A guilty pleasure. Personally, I'm a divegrass fan and a /u/ native, and have supported this team's great campaign during the whole last cup. Playing the full amount of possible matches is a nice achievement. Hopefully, some more nee-sans will join in this campaign. But /u/ is a popular team, full of love and carnival, so I'm expecting a lot of support from different anons. Absolutely everyone is welcomed to cheer for pure love!
When the plans for this edition were starting, we were told about the possibilities of reusing old assets, changing some trademarks, and the change of the name to the "new" one. So for all of you not in the know, here's the nature of the board: both 8/u/ and 8/yuri/ agreed to become a single board when coming to the webring. Staff and regulars from both boards are currently together in our home, along some new anons, too. So the names /u/ and /yuri/ can be used interchangeably without any problems at all. It was also unanimously decided that 8kun was to be ditched, so everyone's gathered in smug/yuri while we have a nicely compiled list of bunkers, alternatives, and procedures in case of emergency.
Given all that, my complete inexperience in PES stuff and lack of creative talent at all, and that the team did fairly well last time. I'd like to request the use of all the same assets we used for the previous edition of the cup. I'll be taking care of any minimum adjustment or last minute tweak that could be needed.
Please and thank you!
