File: e55ba3ab7fbb512⋯.png (71.12 KB, 700x700, 1:1, CUP LOGO 2.png)



The Infinity Cup is returning once again, and 8chan's boards will be fighting it out on the pitch to claim divegrass supremacy. As a board that has participated in the Cup at one point or another in its history, you are invited to the reveal stream for 2019 Summer edition of the Cup. On Saturday June 22nd, at 3 PM EDT/7 PM UTC, on cytu.be/r/8cup I'll be giving you guys an early look at the Cup's 5th edition, which will include revamped aesthetics, team stadiums and other quality of life improvements I've figured out how to do in PES 17. Hopefully this will get anons back on board with the Cup, considering it has struggled mightily since its 2nd incarnation.

So how is it going to go down? I'll be staging a couple of exhibition matches between teams using their rosters from the last Cup, and we'll shitpost our merry way through the stream. Once the stream ends, entries will be open for the Cup, and boards can start putting together/editing their rosters and kits. Entries will close in early July, the field will be determined, and the Group Draw will take place approximately a week before the Cup kicks off in August. I'm also hoping to possibly introduce managers for the Cup, although I'm still working out the details to keep this from devolving into a namefag dick measuring contest. I hope you all will tune in, and in case you aren't caught up on your board's history, I've provided some links below to get you caught up:

That's the tragedy of having had the old board overrun by shills at the time. We need to de-Disney-fy that shit pronto.


Are we allowed to make a new logo? Cuz we have our own shoopfags for that.

I'll ask them.


Excellent work as always shoopfag.

>Excellent work as always shoopfag.

Meh. It was a pretty sloppy first attempt. I may improve it bit by bit as time goes on and if I have the time. You need any uniform designs while I'm at it?



There's a template that needs to be filled out, but I'm not sure where it can be found. For the actual uniforms, do you we want Clones or Stormtroopers?


So what should the roster this tournament be like? Classic characters? Theme faction? A shitpost roster? Name every member of the team Disney Is Dogshit? Load the roster with obscure characters like Qorl and Kueller to confuse people? Decide players by how they work in different positions? My only requests for team members are Kyle Katarn and Mandalore the __, where the blank will be filled in by other posters' consensus. We may want something else to set us apart from the old Disneyfag board, so we should consider changing the music for Sheev or giving more players their own theme music.

>many considering this board a shill-team due to the Episode VII's debut being roughly around the same period

Seeing how much the board has changed since then, maybe /starwars/ and /sw/ should have separate pages


anons are called Stormtroopers on here, so I vote we go with that


How crazy can you go with the skins? Is it possible to make Thrawn?



>Seeing how much the board has changed since then, maybe /starwars/ and /sw/ should have separate pages

Nah we can just move that shit over to the history section and change the main header to represent our current status.



I say the main team should be classic characters, and the backup team be /sw/-approved authors and artists, if there are enough to fill up a whole team. If there aren't, then make the backup team obscure characters to flex our knowledge of the EU on the normals.




Here's another very important question: How many of the people here know anything about sportsball? I have a marginal knowledge of it from growing up around lots of sportsball fans. I only had any skill at being the goalie whenever I played soccer for fun, which was rare.

I actually managed to find the files from ICUP 2, you do have these two kits if you want to keep them. You will need 3 in total though: 1 home, 1 away, and 1 GK kit.


You can do Thrawn, but you'd need to learn Blender and how to edit the PES files. Cuckchan has a tutorial on it thanks to their years of doing the Cup, but I have no idea how to work Blender so I couldn't tell you.


I have a couple of pages put together on what Player Skills are in-game, and what the available strategies are in PES if you want to give it a quick read.





Since it's apparent that our buckyball skills aren't up to par with the free throwing field goalies of the world, we should find something we can work with by figuring out the setup that most closely resembles the military tactics we see all our favorite pew-pewing fleets and armies using. We can reenact the attacks on either Death Star or go defensive by mimicking Hoth. Or we can take the Imperial side in those battles and go the opposite way. We don't get enough details about most of the EU battles to mimic them, sadly. This is also for the most part true of the prequels, and nobody here has any desire to use the sequels for anything. Battles coming from the vidya entries have few to no defined tactics because they're open to player interpretation. Another alternative would consist of doing our own theorycrafting about how Jedi would play hooliganball and adapting it into a play style.

>we should consider changing the music for Sheev or giving more players their own theme music

Why not change all the songs? The main theme and the Imperial March are a bit generic compared to what the other boards have.

My picks would be something from the Demolition vidya OST, the Meco disco remixes or the kinect songs:









We need Nute Gunray up in this

Where can i watch this live btw?



We shouldn't just get rid of everything we have already. But putting the cantina song as Sheev's music was never all that fitting. It should be moved to some other character if we want to keep it.



Everything for this will be live on cytu.be/r/8cup. The preview stream is June 22nd, and that'll just show off what I've managed to do to the game so far. The actual cup itself will run in August.


File: 0bf6c244e07c69a⋯.webm (8.44 MB, 1920x1080, 16:9, FIFA Ad.webm)

A reminder that the preview stream for the 2019 Summer Infinity Cup is this Saturday, 3PM Eastern 7 PM UTC live on https://cytu.be/r/8cup. Entries will open up at the conclusion of the stream, and valid entries of a team name, logo, kits, and roster will be accepted up to July 20th.




I think the music for Sheev should be Augie's Great Municipal Band, I think that's perfect. It's upbeat, triumphant and has a variant of the Emperor's theme woven into it.

I think we should use this song for our entrance theme or something.

That's badass. I'm torn between this and embed related. Should we set up a strawpoll or something?



Whatever as long as we can decide on something before the cup starts. How long do we have and who is updating the wiki page?



Is there a victory theme? This would work better for that than an entrance theme.


File: ee76b5a42a5502b⋯.png (76.4 KB, 504x454, 252:227, 111.png)


Why not both? Augie's theme is a good fit for Sheev as >>34230 said.


>Is there a victory theme?

The goal horn I guess.

Anyways, we need to revise the roaster. Last one reeks of halfchan /swco/:

<Implying it's Canon



<Orange Buttcheeks

Someone already mentioned Kyle Katarn and a custom Mandalore Mandalore the Infinite? as new entries. Any others?

Also, our suggestions are probably limited by our editing skills (or lack thereof). A player called "KOTOR Mulletman" will be easier to implement than Revan with a proper mask.

15 minutes til showtime!






I've taken the liberty of updating our team since no one else is editing the wiki. Have you guys decided on which of these new songs you want to use and what you want to use them for?



No Dash Rendar? Booo!



What can we use them for? I gathered there's an entrance theme, is there a victory theme as well?


I've been reading articles about shoeball tactics whenever I have the time to spare and come up with a few ideas, but we shouldn't post too much about that right now because there's still almost a month until the entries are closed and some other team might read the board and learn our playbook.


>Force Commander

Ultimate patrician.


We need a roster history page to list off whichever players we're going to retire. You can't just change old names to new names because there's no consensus on which players to get rid of or who will play what positions yet and right now it looks like Kyle has played 2 games and conceded 5 goals already despite the Cup not even having started.



I think the goal theme is the victory theme, right? I don't know soccer damn it.


Let me see if it can be fixed.



>we shouldn't post too much about that right now because there's still almost a month until the entries are closed and some other team might read the board and learn our playbook.

What if we use the cytube channel?


Invidious embed. Click thumbnail to play.



Look up some games on youtube. Looking at the wiki there's three themes:

>the anthem (entrance music)

>the goal horn (plays whenever the team scores)

>goal horns for certain players (most boards have 0-1 of those, but /pone/ and /intl/ use 3)

Most seem to be in favor of Force Commander as the new entrance music. Augie's Municipal band works as Sheev's goal horn, unless someone has a better pick.

That means we need to decide on a new generic goal theme now. The old one was the Imperial March and the Force Commander theme is a remix of that.



>That means we need to decide on a new generic goal theme now.

Can we use any of these? Maybe the first one for a personal goal horn of Kyle Katarn?



My pick for generic goal horn




Works for me. I think we can use Augie's band as a general goal horn as well, if we can't come up with something better. Is there a maximum length for the goal horn? If yes I can try editing it down.

Also, embed related might be a decent pick for the generic goal horn.


YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.


I'm retarded



Should just re-use the same uniforms but change the logos on the shoulders to read sw instead of starwars? Or would that be unnecessary?



Only the forward players are likely to score goals, and most teams never run more than 3 forwards because it compromises defense, so the only way you'd ever need very many goal horns is if we use a team of all midfielders. Offense-oriented characters are obviously the best for forwards, meaning Kyle shouldn't be the goalie which is what he's currently listed as. A new backup goalie should either be somebody like Obi-Wan who fights like a goalkeeper with strong defense and shot blocking or a shitpost player. We could also use ships or vehicles noted for high durability in defensive positions, but roundball matches take place on foot the last time I checked. Since midfielders tend not to score goals unless you use far more of them than normal and have few distinctive traits other than covering the most distance per match, midfield is probably the best place to position shitposts or other miscellaneous players. I'm beginning to think we should just go ultra-shitpost funtime with all of it and not worry about trying to win, though. From looking at the threads on /8cup/, it seems like the majority of boards haven't bothered with any of the detailed strategies in any of the previous cups.

We could also have a custom arena, but the Geonosis Arena is the only stadium in the entire franchise AFAIK.



Just going to answer the question posed here. It's fine to reuse those two kits, but you will need at least three for the tournament. For help creating one more, see http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Creating_Kit_Sets or just look up the PESMASTER kit creator for PES 17.



Answering the goal horns/music thing, the anthem is what I'll most likely use for victory theme. The team with the most unique goalhorns is /wooo/ because their team is entirely wrestlers and they all come with their own signature song.




In addition to this, the rules state one gold, one silver, and two bronze medal players this time around. Make sure to change your roster to reflect that.




There's Huttball stadiums and Nuna-Ball stadiums though. There's a lot in fact.




I don't know much about Euroball here in Anti-Austrialia we play hockey like men. So thanks for explaining it




Could you give the thread a more detailed outline of how strategic planning will work? In >>>/8cup/3120 you talk about daily strategy sheets versus general sub-strategies. What's the difference between those and what are the responsibilities of a manager? Should we have the entire team outfitted with play styles, player cards and every option in the team strategies menu filled out before we can participate? I doubt you'll get enough people from all the boards to be managers if it involves effort, and some may not want a lot of tryharding because they think it makes the whole thing less fun.


Well then, it seems as though we do have options, but nothing else has the name recognition of Geonosis.



>Could you give the thread a more detailed outline of how strategic planning will work?

Every team will be required to have a Base Strategy Guide that sets default team behavior on attack and on defense, plus any advanced tactics. The settings are outlined here: http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Team_Strategies. The Daily Strategy Guides were an idea I had, that would serve as a day-of-the-game adjustments to your Base Strategy, which the manager would submit. The idea was to have teams actually play a little chess on gameday and introduce some 'managing' without having namefags shitting around everywhere. Like you said though

>I doubt you'll get enough people from all the boards to be managers if it involves effort, and some may not want a lot of tryharding because they think it makes the whole thing less fun.

At this point it doesn't look like we'll do any sort of managing, so we'll just stick to Base Strategy Guides.

>daily strategy sheets versus general sub-strategies

The whole thing with substitutions was that I was going to have them as part of the Daily Guide not the Base Guide. Since the Daily idea is currently on life support, I'm likely going to add in a "General Sub Strategy" section to the Base Strategy Guide, which will just have statements, like "Sub off most tired CB at the 55th minute" or whatever you come up with.

>Should we have the entire team outfitted with play styles, player cards and every option in the team strategies menu filled out before we can participate?

Yes, but that is all due in August. I just want the basic stuff for now, which you guys have mostly completed at this point.


There needs to be tr8-tor and blue milk in the team

>>34321 (alderaanean)


>blue milk




Come to think of it


should be a player


Since it doesn't seem like much of the board is inclined to partake in strategic planning and because it's more fun to have the players we want, we should establish the roster and then make it fit into a strategy and not the other way around.


I barely know this any better than you do, but the main thing that tilts the score proportions in favor of forwards is that the tarsalball field is so much bigger than the pucksmack rink.


I have most of the required material thought out, but the rest of the board needs to give their input. The rules say the teams can get away without submitting a base strategy and a prefabricated strategy will be supplied. The rules page has no mention of general substrategies, so I didn't know how that affected things.

>55th minute

The rules say the matches are only 10 minutes.



I'd rather have Jar Jar than this.



I didn't even know we could submit strategies. All the boards I looked at who were doing this last year didn't mention strategies at all in their threads, so I assumed it wasn't something you'd submit. I think picking out our roster and stuff like that is what everyone's interested in, so let's just start with that. I'll name a couple, next poster can name a couple more, etc. Idea: maybe Force-sensitive and non Force-sensitive for backup and main teams, respectively?

>Kyle Katarn

>Dash Rendar


>Gilad Pellaeon



I'd say



>Skippy the Jedi Droid





Some mentioned above were

>Nute Gunray



>Mandalore the Infinite


>Revan/KOTOR Mulletman



Fuck yes.




But the questions is among these what old ones will be replaced to make room for these? And will we still be using Bane as a captain?



Imo it's probably easier to treat this as a new start with no regards to the old team. If there's any characters from the old roster that you want to keep just list them now >>34279






Like the others said, don't even bother looking at the old team, we may as well start from scratch with the amount we're changing.





Sounds good but who's gonna be our captain?



Sheev of course



Palpatine is the captain of the main team, Sidious is the captain of the backup.



Oh yeah, I want to add

>Space Jesus

>Mullet Man


I second the motion.



>Space Jesus

Kyle is already on the team.


I've updated the team. We have room for 8 more players.



How about Wicket?


Emperor Jagged Fel.


File: 21d56d462e1c228⋯.jpg (74.54 KB, 576x960, 3:5, Bane_Scene.jpg)


Oh, and Bane. How is he not on the team?


File: 5bb44aec58ad382⋯.png (95.83 KB, 935x703, 935:703, I'm in charge here! - Farf….png)


It gets even more uncanny when you realize that Farfalla was CIA.


We need more from the movies. I vote for having Firmus Piett as an attacking midfielder whose job is to intensify forward firepower. We should also have Lando Calrissian somewhere up front since he's the smooth operator and fighter attack leader that shouldn't be left out.

Other meme options:

>Nerf Herder

Backfield defender who herds nerfs attempting to score goals.

>A Trap

Player created to look especially girly and act as an instigating fullback.


Center midfielder who just gets in the way of opponents and acts as a conduit for passes upfield.

I think we should abstain from using droid or nonhumanoid characters because the Emperor has decreed that toasters and filthy alien scum are to be subservient to humans we can't make them effectively in the character editor.


A reminder, you have less than two weeks to submit your logo, 3 kits, and base roster to the 8cup thread to secure your entry into the 2019 Summer Cup.




Does anyone have this shit ready yet? Also what's a kit. And someone suggest more people for the team roster.


And here's mine

>Nik Sant (is not Rex)



I still don't fully understand what we need, but if anyone can explain to me how I could help beyond throwing out a few more names I'd be happy to do so.



>3 kits

Basically 3 jerseys. One for home, one for away, and one alternate. You make kits by filling out a template, which is in the link below. We've got two already here >>34186 . I think the Stormtrooper kit will work as our Away kit. If you're up for a bit of shooping I think a Royal Guard kit would work as our Home kit, and either an Imperial Pilot's uniform could work as our Alt kit.


>base roster

We need 18-23 names to fill out our roster. I don't think we need to stat them out to be considered for the cup, so we can worry about that later. According to our entry in the infinity cup wiki we have 18 names already, so that's enough for a submission, and we can take 5 more if necessary. Full rules are here:



This one should work: >>34163

Once we have all that we can submit a confirmation post to the 8cup thread.


Does anyone on here know anything about PES strategies? If we don't fill one out we'll get a preset, but of course I don't think we stand a good chance of winning the whole thing with a preset. I don't know shit about PES or sportsball in general unfortunately.




This one explains the team level strategies available in PES


Heads up. You guys have less than a week to finish your roster tweaks and give me another kit to submit your entry to the Cup.



I'm making the attempt at coming up with a strategy, but we should get the roster done first.
