Anons, As that one anon that's been working on the Infinity Cup for all this time, I feel like the boards that were set to participate deserve a bit better than radio silence. For those that aren't caught up or need a quick rundown: >The Infinity Cup is a virtual soccer(football[divegrass]) tournament, with its roots dating back to the earliest days of 8chan >It takes place in Pro Evolution Soccer (PES), a virtual soccer franchise from Konami >I took on the responsibility of organizing the 5th iteration of the Cup back at the beginning of this year >Over months, I learned how to mod PES to put in each board's respective team and run simulated games between them >Using pre-existing guides (many not in English) I also learned how to mod the game from an aesthetic and quality of life standpoint, including crowds, referees, stadiums, balls, and even rudimentary player models >24 boards agreed to participate, and the Cup was scheduled to begin August 9th >On August 4th/5th, we received word that 8chan was losing its host, the site went down relatively shortly after >With no site and no functioning central hub, the Cup was postponed. >I disappear for about a month >I return in October >We still don't have a site, but we do have a webring. >You are here. The whole point of this is to see if anyone still cares at this point. There was hype for the Cup. Yes, some boards cared much more than others but there 24 willing boards and we had the resources to run the Cup. I put in probably far more work on my own than any sane person should have, so I don't want this all to go to waste. That being said though, if we set a date, gather the required parties, and begin streaming the Cup and 6 people show up, I'd rather just not do it at all. I'm going around posting this on every participant board that's here on the webring and I'll try to get this up on 8kun somehow. In the meantime just post in here so I can get a sense of interest from you. Wiki page for the Cup: http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/2019_Summer_Infinity_Cup Missing files >>1379

Took me a bit to find you guys since the board isn't named /y2k/ as of now. Personally, I've always considered 1996 onward to be part of the /y2k/ aesthetic, because the whole scare was building up over those years.

Count us in.

I actually have some good ideas for anthems and mascots and such.

Roy (the guy pictured in the banner) can be our mascot

I've got some good ideas for 90's and 2000's tunes we could have as the team's anthem
>>180
Also, we can keep the flame shirt design for the uniforms that the old /y2k/ had.

Our team's anthem should be changed to something different, since we're covering both the 90's and 2000's.

I'm suggesting "Blue" by Eiffel 65, since it's one of those early meme songs that came out near the end of the 90's, but was still popular in the early 2000's.

Song came out in 1999, but still got a good bit of airplay in 2000 and 2001

Alternately, "All Star" by Smash Mouth can be the team's anthem and "Blue" can be the goal horn.
>>181
>>182
>>183
We'll be keeping everything major that was set up before, so you'll definitely have the flame shirts. If you do want something minor, like the anthem changed, it can be done no problem.
>>184
Well, then I think the anthem should be changed to "All Star"

I've still been unable to get the recording for Day 2, so you'll have to deal with this minimalist update. The recording for matchday one is still in my VODs, you can find it in the Cytube for the next week or so. I'm currently working on a way to store the game replays, if you have any suggestions, let me know. See you on Friday for Matchday 3.
