Congratulations /kind/, 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:
Second Deadline, for tactics and Player Cards (explained below)
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
First day of Knockout Stage
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.
Hey /kind/, I'll be running a test stream this Saturday the 18th on https://cytu.be/r/8cup
. The whole thing kicks off at 3 EDT, 2CST, 19:00 UTC. We'll be playing some friendlies, having a bit of banter, and just shitposting on our merry ways. Tune in!
Stream today 2 CDT 3 EDT 19:00 UTC https://cytu.be/r/8cup
Going live momentarily!
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.
looks good. I think we can just go with this.
Please improve it if you can.
- this is a first draft. I will watch the old streams again and see what else can be improved, but this might take up some time. Any commentary is of course welcome.If you don't have a decent markdown viewer, you can open this file in your browser https://files.catbox.moe/m50aw6.html
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.
I think friendship field is most fitting.
Ok, Friendship Field it is.

You guys are having an interesting match :^)
Didn't make the knockouts no. You guys were put up against a joke Reddit team. In true /kind/ fashion, you refused to bully them too harshly and won 5-0.
Today is the day! A new divegrass champion will be crowned! The final matches of the tournament begin at 11:00 AM PDT, 1:00 PM CDT, 2:00 PM EDT, 18:00 UTC https://cytu.be/r/8cup
The GCUP Friendlies are set! Teams and gimmicks were drawn at random; you will be playing /otter/ in the fifth friendly of the tournament. Start time can be found here: https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=2021-02-20T19:00:00
We'll be showing these matches on the 8cup cytube as usual. Tune in!
Can we still modify our teams playstyle? Apparently something got screwed up last time it was changed.
Since it's just a friendly with a funny gimmick it doesn't really matter, but we can change in time for the next ICUP no problem.
We're on in 45 minutes!
