Hey Erischan bros,
Don't know how acquainted you are with ye ole Infinity Cup, but we're going to revamp it this year and we'd like to have you guys in as well.
To join us, come to https://anon.cafe/icup/
and discuss your own team and representatives there. Can't wait to have fun with you guys!
>>2289You're perfectly correct although I feel that we were invited as a continuation of 8chan /eris/ instead of just another /b/ - Random board. They already had /b/ and /b2/. OP probably felt this was the most appropriate erischan board to invite on.>>2287
I'm absolutely dying at these designs, bless you magnificent bastards>>2287
You misapprehend us, Football is the very definition of chaos
Let's have our fans beat up their fans.
/otter/ has infiltrated our imageboard, before we even started making our team! They shall learn out tactical secrets!
How can we trick their double agents?
otter won't win the cup. we will.
WE WILL DEFEAT THEIR OTTERS
Let's hire the anti football propaganda guy. If all the other teams leave the tournament for moral reasons we win by default!
No, the otters are way too strong. I think it would be better if we just gave up fellow erischan users.
Who sent you?
Why are you spreading mistrust among us?
I'd just like to mention the fact that players can be made invisible.
Make goalie massive and accuse other teamof cheating every time the ball clips through.
Couldn't we also rotate a player model so it looks like he's running backwards?
/otter/ and /eris/ are the greatest of allies.
But that doesn't mean we can't also be enemies.>>2389
Might be possible… the uniform might be messed up though.
http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Kit_Managers>NOTE: Do not use collar 105.>NOTE: Except pattern 13. Don't pick that one.>NOTE: Do not use collar 105.>NOTE: Do not use shorts 16.
Hmmm… Which do you think we should use?
Oh yes, the forbidden kits.
We're using all of them.Spoiler: those are special ones that 4chan edited to be invisible. It's mainly used for hiding the default uniform/skin parts if you're replacing the whole player model but we can use them to make a player with no torso or no arms if you want.
hmmm, if we're going with the right-footed plan well employ a magic couple of sneakers (both being of the right foot) and make them do our bidding by playing the game for us on their own.
- Confirm home kit (currently >>2257
- Confirm away kit (currently grass texture)
- Create away kit 2 (because they will probably say no to grass)
- ==Name our home stadium==
Idea for stadium name:
or Random (as in a fake 'choose random stadium' option)
Added. Now I just have to make the grass one and we're (preliminarily) set for kits.
Scrap this suggestion, it's a pre-existing menu option.>>2417
We could try and make dazzle camouflage for the fourth kit.
That's… simply breathtaking.
holy fuck this shit is amazing
thanks for all the work you've done so fart lad ;-;7
you're a hero
I'm glad you all love it! It was a lot of time, effort and testing but I learned a lot along the way.
We now have a totally valid team that's a heap of fun. All that's left is optional parts like a stadium and billboard memes, a substitution strategy and uploading the DLC packs (I'll do that one today).Easy ways remaining to get involved:
- Make or suggest billboard ads (512 x 64), or other hype material
- Suggest celebration fanfares for certain players scoring (Eris is only one done so far)
- Suggest roster improvements (esp. substitutes) http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki//eris//Roster
Bonus video: This is why we should make a defender fnord'd instead of the goalkeeper.
(PS those clips aren't cherry-picked, no-one has scored against us like that)
Are we winning?
If you mean the actual cup, it isn't starting for at least a month.
All the footage here is just from practice games. I just ran 30 games with our current strategy (pic 1 related, games were run just like the cup except no substitutions) and if you decide winning is a goal, there is room for improvement. However it is hard to be sure whether the outcomes of these games are mostly the result of strategy or luck.
Python 3 script to generate a random 3-game cup from these 30 /eris/ games: https://hastebin.com/raw/ipolusiluz.py
I generated ten thousand of those cup results, our average (mean) 3-game result was 3.27 points (3 per win, 1 per draw, 0 per loss) and the most likely result (mode) is 4, a win plus a draw plus a loss (pic 2 related is the probability of us getting a certain total score)
Depending on the other game results, a 4 may or may not be enough to advance to knockout stage (I believe 3 won't, 5 must) so naively assuming 4 points has
a 50% chance of making it to the knockouts and higher has a 100% chance, then these way-too-few-to-be-scientifically-valid tests lead me to believe our current chances of making the knockout stage are approximately:33% (1/3)>>2434
I will have to retract this statement. In fact there's a reasonable chance it will happen in the cup.
Playing to win makes everything suck
But if we play to lose, then we might not achieve that either. Should we play for zany banter?>>2441
can't do it, I have conflict of interest!
I can just do more testing instead. I ran an extra 30 matches under the same conditions and added them to the script. We lost a couple more and started winning by 1 instead of drawing this time.
As a result, using the same calculations, we now have a much nicer chance of:39.25% (nearly 2/5)
I hypothesize due to this trend that if I keep testing then we will soon approach a 100% chance of winning.
note: while this does look like losing, with such a very small sample size of 60 games, a bunch of randomly-generated results will often give similarly distributed outcomes. these tests dont actually provide convincing evidence that our team plays better or worse than any team.
SKF is a faggot who only rigs for his own pleasure and no one elses. I'm glad to see you guys but you fucked up a little in stroking this cucksuckers ego.
I request you supply evidence that substantiates your intriguing claim:>what makes SKF an alleged egotistical faggot?>in that case, how will this negatively impact anyone except for you?
There should be ample posts in the webring to found your concern upon.
Viewing his post on /ita/, the worst I can say about him is that he put in time and effort to host a traditional community event and considers it a waste of his time if no-one gives a shit. That hardly qualifies as egotistical.
Well, it looks like this post was just a pathetic coping mechanism.
I made three small but big changes to our team strategy and ran the same tests. As a result, using the same calculations, we now have a much nicer chance of:51% (over 1/2)
With numbers so high we are certain to win!
