/otter/ for the Infinity Cup 2020! Anonymous 12/05/2019 (Thu) 21:44:53 No. 339
Hey /otter/ lovers,
We are currently streaming the group phase of the current year's 8chanCup (or as it's more properly known as the Infinity Cup) but due to the exodus and 8ch hiccups we've lost a few teams whose boards never really recovered.
Because of that, we thought it could be great if you guys could join us with a team of your own and participate in the next iteration of the cup, if you feel like it.
All you need to do is create a wiki entry of your own team over at http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Main_Page (use the layout of other teams as a preset), coming up with members/players that represent your board's culture and in-jokes, create a proper emblem and jersey combo and optionally choose strategies, skills and exportable 3d models using the rules set up at http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Rules and we'll make sure to consider your application for the future pot.

I should mention that we would also really appreciate if you came over to our cup's stream at https://cytu.be/r/8cup to spectate what the cup's really all about and to propose your own ideas to make it even better.
See you on the field!
Just under an hour away, Draw Stream, be there! https://cytu.be/r/8cup

The Draw Stream is complete, and with only minor technical difficulties! You guys will play in Group E with /a/, /itaa/, and /art/! I'll be by again later with official game times for your board.
>>1297 .. We're gonna make it, right?

>>1298 Of course, we're otters. >>1299 How exciting!

>>1298 >>1299 I tested our strategy a few times and we did quite well. Let's see if the RNG will be kind to us.

Playing against /ita/ should be fun. otters are the lupi of the rivers after all.

can't the weekend come faster?
Hello! The stream starts in an hour and otters are in the second match of the day https://cytu.be/r/8cup
>>1314 GO OTTERS
Well we lost our first ever match. Having an armless goalie really didn't help I think.
>>1316 What do we have to do to finish the group now? Win the other 2 matches?
>>1317 You have to win at least one, if you draw or lose the other remaining match you might make it through, depending on how other teams go (for example if /a/ win all 3 and /otter/, /ita/ and /art/ all win 1 and lose 1, then a large enough win could put you in 2nd place due to goal difference).

Our next match is Sunday August 16, 19:00 UTC against /art/. >>1320 It was pretty even all things considered. We had far more shots on goal, the final score was basically down to luck. But it was our fate to lose this one, so we don't have to be sad about it.

Hey, if we win the next five games, we'll have won the tournament. If we finish our group, who are we gonna be facing in the knockouts?
>>1338 >If we finish our group, who are we gonna be facing in the knockouts? Ah, looks like runner-up from group E will face winner from group F. So if things go the way they've been going we'll be up against /ausneets/.
>>1338 We can do that right?

Infinity Cup 6 is now complete! Congratulations to /fascist/ who join the ranks of champions as they defeated /bane/ 2-1 in the Final! 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!
Not really bothered by the score, I think the team played very well regardless.
>>1372 The strategy worked well and the team as a whole did exactly what it was meant to. Only some adjustments on the individual player tactics, and I believe we will be much more effective. To be honest, some of the cards were misplaced and we need to put more thought into it next time around.
Bank2bank: No, no-one reads that section. :(

>>1372 No it didn't, it was pretty bad. I think the problem was simply that we lacked the numbers on the offense and didn't press enough on the defense. >>1374 Is there a setting to increase the IQ of players somehow? Those galaxy-brain moments of our attackers not shooting at the goal while they were in the clear, and missing when they do, is probably what cost us the cup.
The Counter Target tactic should be turned off at least for the attacking midfielder, we can't have two players just standing around and doing nothing while the game happens around them.
>>1374 Shortlist of player style changes I'd make, add cards accordingly: CF: Goal Poacher (leave as is) AMF: Classic No. 10 >AMF should look for space for good passing opportunities to the CF, LMF or RMF rather than running to the box himself >must be very good at passing LMF, RMF: Hole Player >Make them cut in the center to let fullbacks come forward >must be good at running DMF: 1 Destroyer, 1 Anchor Man >The double pivot: the heart and soul of the 4-2-3-1, the launchpad of chances and protectors of the backline >must be good at stealing the ball from opponents and good at 1v1 fights LB, RB: Offensive Fullback >Give us extra numbers on the attack. Make these bronze players >must be fast and have good stamina, also should be good at crossing CB: The Instigator >We don't need CBs to join the attack as the wingbacks are already doing that, better to leave them on the defense >should be fast
