Hey /3/. Do you remember our board used to play in 4chan's football cup? The team has been inactive for more than 2 years mostly because the rules required a person to step up as manager. However rules have changed and now a board can participate without provided they have sufficient interest in having a team play. >the 4chan what? 4chan has a sitewide football/soccer tournament every 3 months for like 1000-2000 viewers played on PES AI vs AI with teams representing each board and players are named after things on the board. The main reason it’s on PES rather than FIFA is because of the modding potential that allows increasingly elaborate models to be loaded into the game. Here’s a gallery of some notable ones: https://imgur.com/a/YdgUY /3/ is obviously a board that has modelling potential so if you’re interested in seeing the team come back, take this survey:https://www.strawpoll.me/15248585If interest is confirmed we could start the process of refreshing the team. Speaking of wich you can find a link to the “””current””” /3/ roster below (from Autumn 2015 mind you); if you have suggestions for a much needed do over, feel free to post them in this thread. https://pastebin.com/VApay1yn
Too many words, not enough 3D
>>611366In the imgur album
>>611366Although here's how /3/ used to look two years ago
>>611367The headless biker is the best one
>>611370/n/ 's bikes provide some good hilarity
>>611365>provided they have sufficient interest in having a team playWe don't.Nobody cared even when we "used" to play, it was basically just one or two guys doing everything and /3/ didn't give (m)any shits.
>>611566Yes, back in 2015 there were "mercs"; people managing slow boards for personal e-fame without actually caring for them.I want to make clear that's not my goal here, even though I want to see /3/ come back, it's not worth it without actual interest (also the idea is to be autopilot to avoid e-personality shenanigans).So far some people are interested, I'm posting the current roster for reference, suggestions to refresh it are more than welcome.
>>611623>nothing about donutsdissapoint
>>612239Totally agree, that's why if this comes to fruition, it needs ideas to update the roster
>>611623How good are those autopilots compared to regular teams?
Didn't we have a dorf player back then? What happened to him?
>>614684They lack flexibility. Before the cup every team hand over their tactics, some things like the players are set in stone for the duration of the cup, but formations and tactics can be adapted for each match. Autopilot teams rely on their initial tactics and therefore can't adapt so they are more vulnerable on the long run.>>614717Sacked back in 2014
>>614766Sounds like autopilots have it hardWhat are tactics that can work for that?
I helped one of those teams awhile back with some model work. I'll forward the thread so the maybe 3 guys who actually care about this on /3/ can have some help.
>>614859There are no miracle tactic and on top of that a lot of things are at the mercy of PES' random natureThe poll would have a basic tactical section for people to choose which archetypal style to run>>614860I'd wait until polling is done though, but there's not worry to have about models
>>611365Team Creme endorses this idea.
>>614684They are all shit, except for /cgl/
Alright folks, the cup adminstration gave the green light for /3/ to compete this spring as autopilot, thanks for everyone who voted!The poll to sort out all the stuff will happen on Friday, until then there'll be a nomination period during which you're very welcome to leave suggestions on the following points:>ROSTERCurrent roster is from 2015, you can find it here >>611623If you have new player ideas or want to bring back old players (here's a list of past /3/ players for reference: https://pastebin.com/VApay1yn) or if you have a renaming suggestion, please list them either in this thread or in this pad: http://piratepad.net/oZMS6oQwluThe poll proper will ask you to rate each current and new player, the 23 players with the highest average rating will make to team, and the top 5 will be the star "medal"players that will always stay on the pitch (rank 1 will be the gold player and captain, rank 2&3 will be silvers and rank 4&5 will be bronzes)>MUSICCurrent anthem is the Max Headroom them by Michael Hoeninghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNeGlEtVd34Current goalhorn is the (awesome) Elektonik Supersonik by Zladhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNyG-xu-7SQThe music will only be polled if you guys have ideas to change it, otherwise we'll roll with it(Ratboy Genius has his own horn which will be kept if he stays in the team)Feel free to ask if you have questions>>615243>/cgl/Back then autopilots tactics were based on vanilla PES teams, /cgl/'s ones were based on some OP team so they rolfstomnped almost everyone. A recent autopilot example would be /cm/ which had okay-ish results
>>615318Suzanne and Utah Teapot should be permanent players. Maybe 2 in 1?We definitely need a reference to donuts/AndrewWe need a really bad anime model with either shit anatomy or realistic anatomy which clashes with the style
>>615330>Suzanne and Utah Teapot should be permanent players. Maybe 2 in 1?I'll add it in the poll as joint player with a separate question to vote either Teapot or Suzanne (although I consider Teapot as the most iconic)>We definitely need a reference to donuts/AndrewI added both in the pad, although I would need a better name for Andrew just "Andrew" would be too dry>We need a really bad anime model with either shit anatomy or realistic anatomy which clashes with the styleThat can be adressed after during aesthetics making, although if you have a specific idea it can be in the poll
>>615318add >Autocucks and Simple Tutorial
>>615507>Simple TutorialIn place of Youtube tutorials?
>>615508maybe make it a choice if player goes on the team?
>>615532In a separate question, yup, just wanted to onfirm
>>611365Okay so since time is kinda running out and we have a good few suggestions, I'll proceed with the poll ahead of time, the link to vote is in here:https://pastebin.com/VApay1yn
>>611365>>615667Bumping this to say the poll will end tomorrow around noon UTC
