/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!

We will consider it.

How's this for a logo?
it rhymes, nice
(75.98 KB 680x680 ECwuHNJXUAAem3c.jpg)
I'm gonna make a wiki page for us later today.
Who should we have on our team romp? Apart from Nuria I think E. Dikikae is a worthy member. Maybe as a goalie for being yuge.
Also, we're gonna need some models and shit.
(456.57 KB 1041x1544 mijbil cover.jpg)
Mijbil, the most delightful otter in the world, definitely deserves a spot.
Oh and by the way guys, since 3D models are allowed, how about getting different Otter models and ask the host to use them as player heads/characters?

(84.46 KB 640x480 3dott.jpg)
Wiki page is here. http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki//otter/

I think we should use one for E. Dikikae and maybe Nuria (if someone can make one (a crappy one is fine)).
Also, what do you otters think of this kit? Any suggestions?

We'll use our strength in numbers to pester our opponents.

(19.16 KB 900x900 kit away.png)
(195.04 KB 2048x2048 Template.png)
Here's our kits. I hope these will work.
Our current roster:
>E. Dikikae
A massive, huge, giant and terrific extinct otter species from Africa.
Our board-tan, also the captain. Self-explanatory.
A wise prophet who first taught the love of otters to the people many thousands of years ago. Gold player.
>The Taggerung
A mighty otter warrior from Brian Jacques' novels.
The most delightful otter in the world.
>Strength in Numbers
What we use to pester our enemies.

We're gonna go for a 4231 formation, the gold standard of modern divegrass. We still have 17 positions for players open so if you wanna suggest something, go ahead.

(70.15 KB 2048x2048 kitaway0.png)
I messed up and made them the wrong size. Here, these should be better. Also added our team's and our sponsor's logos.
Let's add Emmet and small-clawed otter from KF
Small-clawed otter is a fucking qt.
>Small-clawed otter
She a cute!
(449.25 KB 1080x1920 ae85465dc337f75b900ae164e5d7b024.png)
We got a MMD model of her we can use.
IIRC MMD models are fine but ask the host
(95.88 KB 959x640 Bishan Dad.jpg)
If there is an otter deserving of a spot in the team then it is Bishan Dad, the most legendary otter of Singapore. He was nothing short of a great leader who united the Bishan family and led it to victory after victory over its rivals, vastly expanding its territory and growing it in strength. Despite being a fierce warrior, he was soft and merciful to his own kin. It was he who first inspired Singaporean's fascination for otters and provided much scientific value for wildlife researchers.
After Bishan Dad's passing, the Bishan family suffered internal strife and confusion, with many of the otters splitting from the family and going their own way, and others being lost or chased away by infighting. Only an otter with the character, staying power, charisma and brilliance of Bishan Dad could leave such a legacy.
Wiki page updated. 14 slots left.
I've noticed the work that's been done on the wiki. I appreciate the effort.
Current roster:
1 GK - Enhydriodon
2 CB - Tarka
3 CB - Mijbil
4 RB - *schlop* *schlop* *schlop* *schlop* *schlop*
5 LB - Emmet***
6 DMF - Otter von Bismarck
7 DMF - Small-clawed Otter
8 AMF - Bishan Dad**
9 RMF - St. Cuthbert***
10 LMF - Nuria
11 CF - Zarathustra*

12 GK - Siamogale
13 CB - Krusty Krab
14 CB - El Huillín
15 RB - Buxolestes
16 LB - Ahuizotl
17 DMF - Smug Sea Otter
18 DMF - Strength in Numbers
19 AMF -Bishan Mum
21 LMF - Chungungo
22 CF - Otterzilla

*Gold player
**Silver player
***Bronze player

And we've got this guy too. I don't have any PES modding experience so I hope we can get them to work.

Congratulations /otter/, your board is now officially entered into the 6th Infinity Cup, a competition dedicated to crowning the divegrass champion of the webring! The defending champion and host for this Cup is /kind/, who defeated /co/ in the final, via a nailbiting penalty shootout. We will be following a similar tournament structure this Cup, with a Group Stage, guaranteeing your board at least 3 games, and a final Knockout Stage to determine the sole champion. The tentative schedule for the tournament is as follows: >July 31 Second Deadline, for tactics and Player Cards (explained below) >August 1st Draw Stream on the Infinity Cup Cytube, determining which teams your board will face in the Group Stage >August 7th, 8th, 9th First, second, and third Day of competition >August 14th, 15th, 16th Fourth, fifth, sixth day of competition, completion of Group Stage >August 22nd First day of Knockout Stage >August 23rd Final day of Knockout Stage, and the champion is crowned So what's the deal with this second deadline? This is for the strategy your team will run during the games, and it's the alternative to live managing. It's a simple text document that the rigger follows during the game that outlines offensive and defensive tactics, as well as substitutes. As for Player Cards, these are the special abilities your players will carry into the game. >Alright, I think I can handle that Perfect. The page explaining Team Strategies and how to select them is here: http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Team_Strategies And the page for Player Cards that does the same is here: http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Player_Cards You can send your strategies and player cards to me (SKF@8chan.co or SKF@cock.li) until July 31st, which gives me ample time to actually put them into the game. If you have any trouble with this as well, reach out. I've tried to make those two pages as accessible as possible, but I know there's still going to be issues for those putting it together. >I want to help but not do that Not a problem. Most teams don't have their roster pages filled out, and it's likely yours is one of them. Head to the wiki and fill in your team's roster page with images and brief profiles on your players. It really helps the commentators with their shitposts in-game. (Exemplar roster pages: http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki//ita//Roster http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki//loomis//Roster http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki//otter//Roster) We're always looking for 3D models of players on teams, so if you happen to know how to use Blender or have access to MMDs or similar 3D models, pass them along and we'll work on getting them into PES. We're also opening up submissions for adboards for this Cup, the field advertisements the scroll through during play. To submit them, simply post in your respective thread on /icup/, the only requirement is that the images be scaleable to 512x64, as that's the dimensions that PES needs for them to work. And as always, there's also room for any OC you guys want to put together for the tournament. t. SKF
>>1173 hey, you got my email, right?
>>1174 With the 3D Models? Yes, and once one of our Blenderfriends puts them in-game, I'll post pics here

Otts dont hate fish though they love it

Open file (31.95 KB 500x333 sad otter 2.jpg)
>>1190 I'd be in for a whole lot of bully if i said from where. Wouldn't even blame you to be honest, there's a bit of a stigma regarding it due to the boards theme and also because of dumb anons not being able to adapt and fit in to where they go and instead shitting up the place because they still want to talk about their "home" board topic even if it doesn't have anything to do with the board they are currently posting in. Besides it wouldn't be very hard to guess. I need to come here more often, i like the place alot so i'll restrain from posting so i don't stand out for now and ruin a very good board. What would be a rivalry matchup for /otter/ ? I'd say /furry/ but i'm just spitballing, don't really know enough about the place to know which boards are anathema to /otter/
>>1197 I doubt there would be any bullying, everyone who loves otters is welcome here. And I don't think we've got any real rivals tbh, we kinda get along with everyone (even furries).
Open file (173.68 KB 958x574 ot.jpg)
>>1196 Otters are heroic fighters who do not let differences of size or strength stand in the way to victory. They belong to the Mustelidae, who are known for their fearlessness against any opponent, and are not accustomed to losing. The one who underestimates otters must depart from his fingers. And even if otters lose a match, then their fur is thick enough to bear it and come back stronger for the next one.

Hey /otter/. I'll be running a test stream this Saturday the 18th at https://cytu.be/r/8cup. The whole thing kicks off at 3 EDT, 2CST, 19:00 UTC. We'll be playing some exhibition games, having a bit of banter, and just shitposting on our merry ways. Tune in!

Guys, maybe we should have our own ball design and maybe definitely it should be a big round delicious sea urchin. Can we do 3d models for balls too or is just texutres? If we can here's a model: https://sketchfab.com/3d-models/cartoon-sea-urchin-free-3d-model-6bc2f0cfcfb043d8b4465368ece05b67 If not we need another idea.

Thank you to all who tuned in to the /test/ stream today. If you missed it, the matches will be up on the archive soon (https://pt.neko.bar/video-channels/icuparchive/video-playlists). We are officially two weeks away from the Group Draw to see who your team will compete against in the first stage of the Cup. If your team does not have their tactics sorted out yet, feel free to chip in by working on Team Strategies (http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Team_Strategies) or Player Cards (http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Player_Cards). I know this is complicated, so swing by your thread on /icup/ and I can answer any questions you might have. The deadline is July 31st. If you're not tactically inclined, you can still help out by creating adboards specific to your board. Adboards, like /japan/'s here, pic #2 related, are the little signs that cycle through on the sidelines during games. Post a board-related ad as a PNG in the same dimensions as /japan/'s and I'll be able to use it during the Cup. Any other OC for your team or roster you'd like to contribute is always appreciated as well.

For every goal we concede in the cup, I shall donate £5 to the UK Wild Otter Trust. So if otters lose, they win.
>>1221 They need to be in the dimensions of the /japan/ one above. There's a lot of nice OC you guys have made, but shrinking them to those dimensions would destroy them.
>>1230 I mean we already have a bunch of adboards posted in the /icup/ thread. I'm sure we could make even more though, just fill all the adboards with otters.
>>1231 I see them now! That's a pretty solid amount.
Just a reminder you have less than a week to finish up tactics and player cards. If you are having any difficulties or are worried no one will step up, leave a post here or in your thread on /icup/. I have an anon on standby willing to put something together for teams who need help. If you're a team who has participated in a previous Cup and you have not explicitly let me know you're sticking with your strats from last time, do so ASAP, as it cuts down on the work I'll have to do in the week after the Draw Stream. If you've already done so, kick back, take it easy and wait for the draw stream. Draw Stream is August 1st, 2PM PDT, 4PM CDT, 5PM EDT, 21:00 UTC. Mark that calendar. As well, we're still accepting adboards for use during the tournament, visit the dedicated adboard thread on /icup/ and post them there.
>>1247 Luckily we've already submitted everything.
>>1249 Yeah, I just have to autistically go to each board and make sure this stuff is posted. Just in case I have to tack on any new information, in this case, the Draw Stream start time.

This little fella is finally in-game! How many players do you want to have this model?
>>1277 Depends. Can he run on four legs?
>>1277 Just the GK's, I'd say.
>>1277 What a beauty he is.
>>1277 how big is he compared to other players?
>>1281 Close to real size, their head almost touches the ball when dribbling. Very cute. >>1279 Goalkeeper would probably be the most broken position, as goalkeepers play the ball mostly above ground with their hands rather than at their feet. I recommend placing them on the field, maybe Small-Clawed Otter and *schlop*, or perhaps all the four medal players?
>>1283 Does he run/move like a real otter? Let's see, using him for small-clawed otter doesn't work since that model isn't a small clawed otter and we already want to use another model for her. I think using him for Tarka and Mijbil would be good.
