Ahoy, comfy friends! The Infinity Cup, "the world's most comfiest tournament", is about to begin anew! We would really like it if you could come join us, whether as a team or for the fun of it! https://anon.cafe/icup/ is the place!
I don't know if we can join, we don't really have any memes or anything to call our own to make a team out of
>>833 I'm new to /comfy/ and not a regular (some r9k threads a few years ago and that's it) but you could make players like: >Gondola >/nightwalk/ >city lights >rudefag
>>838 Gondola is already on /ita/ afaik
It's gonna be difficult putting a team together since PES doesn't seem to have a strategy that involves lying around in the grass and looking at clouds. Sports seem to be rather stressful and not very comfy, unless it's fishing. I wonder if there are any fishing competitions we can take part in?
>>908 At the very least I'm pretty sure there are strategies that involve moving around less, and watching these games can be comfy at least.
Can multiple boards make a team together? If so I suggest joining up with /late/.
>>971 /cafe/ and /shelter/ can join in too.
>>974 Naw, /cafe/ is dead and /shelter/ isn't anyone's home.
>>971 /late/ seems open to the idea. Should I make a thread on /icup/ now?
>>994 Sure thing, friend. The host is chill as.
>>995 Here we go >>>/icup/249
I made a list of possible players, what do you all think? >>>/icup/253
>>1069 Sounds good to me How about some pastel pajamas for kits?
>>1079 Wanna make some? The kit templates are on the wiki.
>>1069 It's nice and snug. My recommendation is in there!
What do you think of these kits? >>>/icup/512
As a heads up, there is one week left to submit your board's entry to the Infinity Cup! For your entry to be considered complete, we still need a full roster from your board.
>>1727 Adding one sub to get us to 18: >rainy cyberpunk pixel art .gifs And picking medal players: >Blankets (G, Capt.) >Gondola (S) >Nightwalk (B) >City Lights (B) Goalkeeper: >Sweet Dreams (GK) I am just an anon so if anyone wants to offer better suggestions then please do!
>>1728 We'll need to know the positions of the rest of the team, but you do have 18 players listed as of now which does qualify you. Make sure you're consulting with /late/ as well moving forward. You'll need team strats and whatnot down the line. I'll also fix the post on /icup/ accordingly.
>>1728 >>1731 So uh, what formation should we use?
>>1779 There's plenty to choose from. Here's a link with some berry simple and traditional formations to give you a basic idea: http://www.soccer-training-guide.com/soccer-formations.html. You can find plenty more complicated ones through searching too if you'd like. Bear in mind though, you have about a whole month to finalize the formations and strategies, and I'll be posting more about it on /icup/ next week.

Congratulations to the /comfy/ half of /late/ & /comfy/, 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 shipposts 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
>>1904 Amazing I guess we still have to do some stuff...
>>1908 We do, but this stuff is much easier to do than the previous deadline (and can totally be done last minute if no-one is bothered) I am happy to help out and walk us through the necessary decisions explaining things, but it should be known that I am the rep and strategist for /eris/.
I came up with a strategy, this look good to you guys? /late/ and /comfy/ Strategy Guide Formation: 5-3-2 Attacking Instructions Attacking Styles: Possession Game Build Up: Short-Pass Attacking Area: Wide Positioning: Flexible Support Range: 3 Defensive Instructions Defensive Styles: All-out Defence Containment Middle Pressuring: Aggressive Defensive Line: 6 Compactness: 4 Advanced Instructions: Attack 1: Attacking Fullbacks Attack 2: False Fullbacks Defence 1: Wing Rotaton Defence 2: Off Player Settings: Select Captain: Blankets Long Free Kick Taker: Short FK Taker: FK Taker 2: Left Corner Kick Taker: Right CK Taker: Penalty Kick Taker: Players to Join Attack: (This is a setting specifically for corners/free kicks. It tells a player to come up and be part of the set play, rather than staying in his position on the field) Substitution Strategies: Sub off 2 most tired defenders and most tired midfielder at 70'.

Hey /comfy/, 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 shipposting on our merry ways. Tune in! I wasn't able to get this to post on /late/ for some reason, can one of you try over there and see if it works?
>>2149 Actual link not messed up by punctuation: https://cytu.be/r/8cup

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.
>>2213 posting appears to be broken again on /late/, so someone let them know.
>>2214 Imageposting has been busted for several days now. You can still textpost, though.
>>2221 Good to know, thanks
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.
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 C with /co/, /monster/, and /cluckquean/! I'll be by again later with official game times for your board.

Took a little longer than I thought to get it finished, but here's the schedule for your Group.
O yeah, we're playing today. Against /co/, apparently.
>>2382 Yes. Still plenty of time until the /late/+/comfy/ match, but group A games begin in an hour. https://cytu.be/r/8cup
We are losing...
>>2384 We lost.

Be sure to tune in for these games and more this weekend!
I think we're now tied for the worst team of the tournament. We are just too comfy.
>>2451 ...and now you've easily beaten the top team of your group! Six goals is worth being proud of. >/kind/ predicted to win >0 points and 1 goal total

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 cluckquean-tan (/cluckquean/). Each player scored 6 goals officially through the Cup, fitting, giving it was the 6th edition. Thank you to eberry 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!
