Now with added OC!
ITT: What /v/'s doing this coming winter ball.
And since we constantly get questions from morons who can't lurk for more than 5 seconds, have newFAQs for newfags:
>What is the Winter Ball?
A thing that happens every year where boards ask each other, and then draw OC and scenarios for the pairings that happen. Right now it’s gonna happen on the 30th.
>Okay, so who're we going with?
We're going with /x/.
>Isn't /a/ with /v/, though?
/a/ rejected us to go with /sp/
>Is there somewhere with all the current pairings listed?
There's a steam group here: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/4chanball, but it hasn't been updated in awhile (God dammit Flopsy get on that shit). There's a few infographics floating around (their accuracy may vary, though; some things may change here and there).
>Is there anything I can do to help?
Original content like drawings, animations songs, creepypasta, and other stuff like that (I can’t believe I have to explain this).
>Alright, that makes sense, but what's /pol/ doing here? And what's this contest I keep hearing about?
Tl;dr: /lgbt/'s trying to make /pol/ go with them, so /pol/ is trying to get /x/ so they don't have to (even though /x/ asked us weeks ago and we accepted). /pol/'s justifications for this range from "BUT /V/ HAS NOTHING IN COMMON WITH /x/" (false; horror games and vidya creepypastas) to "EBOLA-CHAN IS OUR DAUGHTER" (true, but it doesn't mean they get first dibs).
The contest was made as a way to decide once and for all who gets to go with /x/ (probably by /pol/ since /x/+/v/ were already official before they started shitting it up). We're not going to back down, so we're in this for the long haul. It ends on October 20th.
>So what the fuck is actually going to happen?
I WISH I FUCKING KNEW.
Remember when 'board-tans' were just funny injokes that were only occasionally used in board related comics.
Now they're fucking people with lives and relationships. This garbage is the pinnacle of cancer.
Why can't we just
What is this roleplaying bullshit?
Where are the video games?
>/pol/ going with anyone
>/pol/ not going with /k/
>not knowing /x/ & /v/ has been a thing since /a/ & /v/ were a thing
>/pol/ not just saying yes to /lgbt/
/pol/ asked for it the moment they became a thing or something
Autism works in both ways so
Pls stop this.
>/soc/ will go with /r9k/
It's fucking unrelated to anything on this god damn website, and this culture shit has gotten to the point were there's just as much of it as actual fucking videogames.
Even Filename threads are more video game related than this trash.
Not gonna lie I had fun so far
/pol/ can only propaganda and we are pretty much the most influential board here so all of the arguing for /x/ has been puppet master vs Azuras wrath
also it's sad how so little of our population even understands that META threads count as ontopic, not to mention this has been a thing for years now.
Why do people get banned for saying Nintendo/Sony/Microsoft is gay but this literal autistic shit is perfectly fine?
I think they know.
Frankly I'm just sad that if we do happen to lose /x/ for whatever reason we won't be able to go back to /a/.
It ain't easy bein' a /v/irgin
>personifying boards and "asking" them to the "winter ball"
Don't you have some Barbies to play with or something?
>4chan House 2.0
Will you faggots ever fuck off? Didn't you make a containment chan for this shit?
I bet you all think that ROW ROW animation is some kind of magnum opus too. Get this meta culture shit outta here.
/x/ is with /v/. It's just the kind of relationship that had them together and content being near each other in the same room. One reading or watching movies, the other video gaming or shit posting.
Someone draw that now.
>I let this happened
Remember guys, we're here forever.
winter ball is just the name, it's purpose is to promote users to try other boards and see other communities, and making wicked OC in the process
didn't know you'de be this mad tho
I'd assume /pol/ takes this whole thing way more seriously than us so it might end up in a twist where /v/ just doesn't care and lets /pol/ win.
They don't even have fun with it anymore, they don't draw or anything, they just strategize and shitpost.
except I already do that without having to have some autist draw pictures of the '4chan winter ball :^)'
It started off in 2008, though.
That, and /pol/ should never be included these things. They even admitted to not caring about the board they shitpost in, they just look for threads to push their shit.
>posting on /v/
>not expecting someone to mad post
Doesn't matter what the thread is, someone will always mad post. It's how it is.
Probably. /v/ doesn't enjoy things as it use to. This kinda thing would have been fine during the years before all those new boards were added though.
you know this has existed since 2008 right? kill yourself if you think you will mould and remove things you don't like because you weren't part of /v/ during that time.
These anonymous artists always, always, ALWAYS come out a couple of months later to say "Oh remember that epic OC I reposted everywhere on 4chan? I ~totally~ made that"
It happened with cap-tan, it happened with the 4chan House faggots, it's gonna happen here.
This is a delayed-reward system.
>It started off in 2008, though.
No, it really didn't, champ.
>That, and /pol/ should never be included these things. They even admitted to not caring about the board they shitpost in, they just look for threads to push their shit.
Just stop begin an autistic little bitch and get a job.
>implying /v/ just won't get back with /a/ after all is done
It's how it's always been. They fight then get back together. Hate love relationship which created /jp/ . There I said it
This kind of thing would have been fine if the board population didn't increase, especially in /v/. We have people sliding in from GAF and Reddit.
It's easy to tell because they're the ones crying NEWFAG.
first off you aren't some seer retard. just because few persons out of 50 or so other drawfags wanted to get appreciation (which is pretty fine and there isn't any rule against it) they are free to do as they please.
There's actually a list I see posted on
/pol/that's pretty fair considering what's happening.
>No, it really didn't, champ.
Your new is showing. Board-tans happened during 2008, started off in /co/ and kicked off in the other boards.
>Just stop begin an autistic little bitch and get a job.
Where do you think we are? Don't you have some lurking to do?
>implying OP is going to be a braggart after being the one pushing this shit.
Let's be real, anyone who comes off anon about this is gonna get assblasted for spamming this faggotry. It's not worth it.
But then again, who says that those people are really the ones who made it in the first place?
All these /pol/ kiddies raging with a mix of regular newfags who dont know shit as usual is really sad
>Your new is showing. Board-tans happened during 2008, started off in /co/ and kicked off in the other boards.
>I post on /co/ and got board so I cancer'd up every other board
That's all you had to say
>Where do you think we are? Don't you have some lurking to do?
Just got back from my shift. Don't go projecting your inadequacy onto others because you're insecure.
oh noes you posted an image, that adds more weight to your response!
>mfw we're still posting in this thread
We can only blame ourselves.
It's a community website that gets posted everywhere. We all knew people from other sites would come. Some just didn't want to think about it.
Remember, we can only blame ourselves or everyone else.
I don't like /pol/
they're showing up in /co/ too and really demonstrating how crazy they are.
Good luck with this, /v/
>someone doesn't like Autism Ball spam
>"WOW what a newfag you must be, lurk more!"
>and promote meta discussion
HOW IS THIS A GOOD THING?
Meta shit and "damn what happened to /v/?" and "/v/ is so angry they hate all games!" shit is not videogames and doesn't belong.
Moot even made a board JUST FOR META and then deleted it because it was so whiny and cancerous.
No. Meta discussion in a board with an actual topic is NEVER a good thing.
Man I hope you were just joking.
requesting /pol/ arguing with /v/ about who get's /x/. then /pol/ dresses up like /x/ as a false flag operative to tell /v/ to fuck off
/v/ does the same and now you have 2 cross dressing boards wearing rainbow stockings and skull shirt with panties arguing pretending to be /x/ while /x/ tries to timidly ask if they should go with /v/ or not.
>why do you guys do this
>why do you guys do that?
it's self conciousness. here this is promoting board exploration and discussing with the ther communities here. if you go to /3/ or /i/ they have their own culture and ways that are weird to us despite how small they are.
you're classifying META as complaints, meta is us trying to discuss topics about ourselves for once
/v/ is vidya so it's on topic which means we are allowed to talk about ourselves freely.
I've never understood this response.
>This thread is unrelated to board topic
>W-well so are these other ones!
How does that make it any better? You're still shitting up the fucking board.
When Gotham is ashes, you have my permission to lie.
/tg/ + /vp/ makes sense
/s4s/ + /r9k/ fits like a puzzle piece
/co/ + /ck/ i don't get it, why
/fit/ + /fa/ makes sense
/sp/ + /a/ i don't get it
/b/ + /mu/ so they aren't comming at all
so is /pol/ dateless?
>The ball isn't a new thing
Sure if you think early summer 2014 is "old" and "established". This "tan" shit all started when reddit went down in May 2014, and spammed autism and mediocre drawings from 13 year olds onto here.
>13 year old drawfags are posting on /v/
I know your type. I use to be the type, i used to hang around the type, using macromedia flash for newgrounds flash films and sitting in my room, eating chocolate playing GTA III and laughing at salad fingers and evil bunny. You are this cancer.
I don't really care about shitty board culture, but does this mean there's going to be more /x/ porn?
Lemme see if I can do something perhaps where the flashlight swings. Gimme a few minutes, I'm a bit rusty.
I know the standard for games is 60fps but I could give two shits less honestly.
18fps 200x gif, on it's way.
covers large amounts of topics, even the ones you don't like which shouldn't matter
>does /v/ like this
>help me /v/
>anything board tans (as long as it pertains to /v/ exclusively)
>let's play a game /v/
>let's invite /x/ to play worlds.com
anything regarding questions about mods or moot or so and such belong in moots email (which never sees the light of day so don't bother)
it's stepping past the fourth way and understanding where you are for a second
Sadly it's really not the first time it's happened, this is the 2nd however most of the same arguments were used to defend the cancer then.
It can't be helped just look at
>board tan gimmick beaten to death
The cancer now dominates every board on 4chan
>This "tan" shit all started when reddit went down in May 2014
dude, I know you're angry an all that, but don't spit bullshit because of it. No, -tans aren't new.
There's nothing bad in having some fun. Cross-board jokes aren't something new either. Relax a little. I've been frequenting this site for years (/v/ isn't my main board though, that would be /mu/ and /co/). Get that sand out of your vagina and have some fun again.
>enabling "hivemind" discussion instead of letting individual anons have their say
>using one guy's character to establish the "mood" of the board and how this character "feels" about other boards
>treating boards like some kind of one-mind fraternity instead of a forum for a certain topic
>bringing in forum games (which are okay I guess if they lead to vidya discussion but shit like "post your favourite game and your darkest fetish" is just personal blogging
All does nothing to improve the quality of discussion on the board
Meta is never good
What better couple than those who can kill an animal and those who can take care of one.
Talking about imageboards certain board culture and personifying it into an imaginary ball with drawings is pure autism, not fun at all. Cross-board mentions of certain board behavior is well recognised, but this is just shitty imaginary shit from children.
>/v/ shitposters + /pol/ shitposters + /co/ regulars
This poor thread doesn't stand a chance.
At least we'll still win against /pol/.
>everybody who doesn't comply to my literal autistic shit is a /pol/ poster
>everybody who doesn't join in on my imaginary retardation is a shitposter
full retard. stay mad. reported.
you let it become a hive mind if you're a coward that hide behind everyone else's pinions
try standing up for once - christ you're anonymous here, not that hard
the character we use is angry, you appear to be real mad as well, no arguments to me if he represents a community that differs slightly to one another
>post your favourite game and your darkest fetish
that's on topic, if you call it blogging you are seriously too autismic to be using a keyboard
You may not like it, but dissing on it is just fucking stupid.
Dude, have fun again. It's the main purpose behind the site. Shit, these even produce OC. What's the fucking deal?
>Now they're fucking people with lives and relationships. This garbage is the pinnacle of cancer.
That's because board-tans have become the "acceptable to talk about on 4chan" version of Homestuck
we need to sticky shit so newfags stop coming here acting pathetic not knowing crucial community shit
>Wandering art fag travelling from board to board fulfilling request as I pass by
>See's The /v/ vs /pol/ to get /x/ post
>This could be fun and I've got a free weekend to waste
>Sides with /v/ and starts to make oc
>Could give no fucks about this Ball
>Just wanted to make something new
Sorry. Had no idea. Been to /int/ once. It took me a minute to realize I wasn't on /v/ . Same thing happened when I went to the travel board once
>thought I was on /v/ both times
Goes to show you how much /v/ stays on topic.
that was /co/ acting retarded
then 3AB saved us by giving us the single greatest OC ever seen
so no, eye brows are all that we need (it's funny cuss we were fighting /b/ and it's cancer get it?
META threads are vidya retard
lol are you really this sad about getting called out for shitposting?
>/v/ is triggered by people having fun
I have to admit that this shit is a little bit autistic but I can't believe how hard you guys are sperging out because of this. It's like /v/ was flooded with normalfags.
Calm the fuck down, guys. Being autistic about autism ist just fucking retarded.
And I have one more but I'm saving it for the last week. Gotta hit them with a big finish!
Man, if only we could get some peace like those two.
Wouldn't that be swell considering the mods have spoken at this point.
>When did I say
Do i really need to explain i was talking about /v/.
All these newfags and their autism. The ball wasnt invented yesterday. You werent here so you try to cry about it to be "le ebin". So obvious and its gonna happen either way. Stay mad redditors
I like the anger permeating from /v/ whenever we try to do anything as a community
6 years ago in my homeland of Britbongistan, I came across a giant model of a cigarette butt in the middle of Trafalgar Square. This was part of a campaign to remind the citizens of London to discard their cigarette butts in the trash instead of leaving them on the ground. I'd say the model cigarette was about 10 meters high and 3 around.
Why am I bringing this up? Well, I just thought I'd tell you the only time I've ever seen a bigger fag than OP.
>all this shitposting
Why are you so fucking mad about some autists? I normally ignore these threads (like every thread I don't like, you know) but all those buttflustered tears are unbelievable.
I think this would sum 75%+ of the thread for now.
Well, might aswell leave this "ball" bullshit to the autists for now then.
Remember when /pol/ were all buddy-buddy with us and getting us to be more active with GG?
Remember when they got us to fundraise that shit thing?
See what they're doing now?
>Yeah because flame-baiting hasn't existed since the Usenet days.
But it's for fucking 11 year olds. I don't understand how people can STILL consider it funny.
Fart jokes are funnier and more mature than this shit.
I'm not even mad. I don't care about this winterball faggotry. I'm just astounded that this level of shitposting is still existing on /v/.
I start to believe all that "neo-/v/" bullshit is really somewhat true. It's pretty sad, man.
The amount of /pol/ kiddies posting in this thread is insane. Too bad they cant be subtle at all
Just fucking stop it. You have no idea what you're talking about. We're in peak physical condition, we've all shot firearms and while we're not competitive shooters we can hold our own against the vast majority of shooters who almost always fall into two categories, HURR I GOTS A NUGGET crowd and mallninjas that are more concerned with having tactical gear than training or shooting. Put real guns in our hands and we would rival many special operation units in training and effectiveness, guaranteed.
We get out there and train at least weekly with airsoft or other methods. We always run as realistic as possible (camo, tac vests, hydration systems, ruck sacks etc) and our guns are as close to real as you can get, even using real accessories. So we basically go out and run gunfighting simulations all the time. Talk shit all you want, you still feel all the adrenaline and gain all the experience of an actual gunfight, just without getting shot.
inb4 you call me underage, a faggot, or whatever. I'm 21 and I guarantee I could put you in the dirt. We just need to find a way to get into the business.
>Mfw faggots are producing "OC" that's fucking atrocious.
What happened to quality over quantity? You can't just force OC and expect it to be good. This shit is turning out to be like rage comics.
Fucking /a/ degenerates!
They derail our threads with lolis, fap to our waifus and post weeb shit here, and now they leave us for fucking /sp/orts?
What the fuck?
Why, /a/? Why?
Is some mod or janitor seriously removing all the shitposts right now?
I swear to god I'll never do some shitty "for free" joke again. Based.
Great, /a/ rejected us and now were stuck with the weird kids
>a thing that happens every year
I've been stuck in this shit hole for nearly 10 years of my damned life, and I never remember dealing with this level of cancer, nor do I remember a single god damned "winter ball"
>not wanting to get stuck with qt3.14 creepy girl
Anon, are you gay?
>See what they're doing now?
As someone who frequents both /v/ and /pol/ I can honestly say /pol/ isn't the board that did the back stabbing here.
/pol/ was gung-ho to be buddy buddy with /v/ after GG, but then some /v/ poster went and made a winter ball poll on /x/ that excluded /pol/. Then it turned out the person running the steam group and announcing the pairings was a /v/irgin. /pol naturally picked up on the conspiracy and turned rabid.
Don't lie to me, I've seen your threads.
ill be at a halloween party dressed as an uruk from shadow of mordor that im making out of old fake leather jackets and cheap pliable metal painted black, fake blood, prosthetics, etc
have like hundreds dumped into the costume that ive saved by pirating all my games for the last 15 years
>I NO I'M GETTING BANNED FOR VIOLATING THE "NO SHITPOSTING" RULE ;_;
"Fun"posting's not so fun anymore, huh newfag?
Anyway. Any idea for some OC? I want to do something spooky.
We tried to ask /a/ before /x/ came, and man /a/ was pissed. They violently told us to fuck off. I guess weebs don't like vidya anymore.
Maybe all the shitposters here came from /a/
You dumbfucks /pol/ wants /x/ because of their involvement in ebola threads
Something about chakras.
>tfw the new definition of fun is shitposting
Creating OC is fun, you just ignore the shitposting and that's it. It's /v/, what were you expecting, especially after the whole Vivian fiasco, you got your newfags here thinking that tans are some sort of fad.
I'm legitimately curious why people keep saying this happens every year.
From my memory, the "ball" only happened once in 2012.
/pol/ just doesn't want to be with /lgbt/
Anyone amazed how we got /x/ to ask us out and now /a/ is all jealous, even if they were trying to make us jealous by going with /sp/? It's so fucking beautiful, lets show that tsundere trap that we can make someone (/x/) happy!
>newfags here thinking that tans are some sort of fad
Yeah, what's up with that?
Shit's fun people. Creating OC is good.
holy shit what a hot babbayahibit
And it just combines so well. qt tan who's into spooky and paranormal stuff wanting to play spooky vidya with /v/
at night together.I can only imagine all the cute OC that could be made with this.
Because then people might realize this faggot shit is even less new than Baneposting.
It's not us, just some vivian james faggot.
considering there's literally no talk about formally asking /a/, that's probably one guy trying to start shit.
I will never talk bad about janitors or mods again. Thank you for doing this.
>google it, expect shit artist
well those are your tastes, anon
Why would someone do this, they hate us enough as it is.
Who would have such indecency?
Yeah, I created a thread on /a/.
Was that a that too much of a bad idea?
No lewds, they're cleaning up after us enough as it is.
Fukken saved. But mods are here so it's a no-no.
a couple of uninteresting jocks.
his persona's visual is the tits fuck you
Then fuck /a/. They can take all this weeb shit from here at shove it in their smelly fatty board.
/x/, I'll love you.
>roleplaying as a fictional character on a video games board
Fuck you /v/ is a fucking cutie.
Also, his design is so simple because he's pretty much the oldest tan, and wasn't specifically designed to be a tan. He just... was a thing after a time.
I like it. It's simple and yet super recognizable.
Also, the white round head makes it perfect for skellington costume + facepaint. I'm looking at you, /x/.
Do you have it, anon?
We've always had this love-hate relationship, so they were most likely just playing hard
>tfw we got a way cuter tan to ask us out, so fuck that tsundere trap
>Also, the white round head makes it perfect for skellington costume + facepaint. I'm looking at you, /x/.
this is just 2spooky4her Anon,but i still want some drawfag to make this
Well good luck with the OC, guys.
Mods are on your side so don't let this chance be wasted. Create as much content as you can, make it worth it.
I've already got it covered mate
We should take /mlp/ next year, I mean look at how cute she looks.
She's going to be riding /d/'s cock until she becomes a broodmare so that's probably not viable.
