Match uploader here, perfect timing for a thread.
Just opened a new youtube channel specifically for /mlp/ matches. Mostly due to jewtube's retarded copyright rules
Also I know I'm quite late uploading this one, but here's our all zer0 match against legbutt
Seeing the channel background reminds me, can we PLEASE get this pic back on our main wiki page? I know it's outdated but the old roster pic was there for a long time as well. Plus I think it's the single best piece of cup art there is as far as drawings go.
>tfw content grinds to a halt when we start playing poorly
here's to us winning autumn and taking the babby cup brace, the second most coveted award next to the third place trophy.
His ghost is still lurking, probably in this very thread.
Awesome work, as usual.
Noice; thanks for uploading these.
I'm not the best at this kind of stuff, so the ritual is pretty taxing. Going to try bringing in a team of e/x/perts to see if they can help out.
Copy and pasted the long chain of introductory+changes posts from tottori into pastebin in case the foolz archive dies sooner rather than later and for reading convenience.
Soooo wasn't there a discussion about having "fuck a horse" as a goal horn?
While I like the idea I think it doesn't work because it's short (needs to be looped) and especially the bleeps in the song, doesn't fit a 4chan anthem.
Maybe, if a DVD is released bleepless, it would be a great idea, at LEAST a goalhorn specific for >rape .
I-is it too late for webms?
It happened again. The ride must go on 2: Electric Boogaloo.
I lost all of my webms and cup related things in a recent hard drive failure.
But I do have one that I made from the last time I had pes installed
Oh, I see this kind of thing all the time. It's super annoying. It might just be me but it might be related to the speeding bullet card.
Anyway, when I play so many games I end up seeing some funny stuff. For example the attached webm.
My mind automatically read Autumn as Autism in the OP.
this channel is just for our team though. I'm sure others on youtube have recorded other boards if you want to watch them too.
Thanks. Accept this sexy Inkie as a token of gratitude.
can't forget the last second >rape goal against /s/
and Horsefucker's last second equalizer against /a/ too
above are my two favorites
Oh yeah, those two were incredibly hype. I cheered for escaping the group stage, but sperged out in autistic happiness when we equalized /a/. Think I nearly broke the keyboard. I didn't even mind losing at that point. We fought that match as hard as possible and it showed.
The last second goal against /s/ that >>19326897
linked is up there. It was literally the brink of death, and >rape pulled us back. I screamed like a little girl. Shit was so cash
My favorite moment was the game against /d/ in Spring 2013, when Derpy took the final matchwinning penalty after saving a shot not even seconds before.
This is how legends are born.
>>Rape gets Denied group hug
>tfw you can relate
What channel? Watching him play Sims yesterday was funny. Faust living together with Putin, John Cena and Emma Watson, constantly discussing cartoons and running into people's bedrooms to talk to them.
What was the deal with the girl that kept picking shit off the floor and stuffing it in her mouth, though.
>Ken will never commentate another match.
>Watching him play Sims yesterday was funny. Faust living together with Putin, John Cena and Emma Watson, constantly discussing cartoons and running into people's bedrooms to talk to them.
Yeah that was great. He played a little more Sims a few hours ago.
Have a squat Lyra. I also tried my hand at those trading cards anons were doing in the vg thread when I was bored one night, but I fear they're not as good.
Can anyone explain what the hell this is? Yes, I'm showing how new I am. Just a summary would be cool. Is this some kind of inter-board football match up? How do teams play against each other?
I-I tried. This is the one I did for >rape. Just put some random stats in and used his actual in-game face. I might end up doing them in a different way and do a full set after Autumn. No point doing a full set now if players end up getting updated soon enough.
The 4chan-cup is an asociation football cup played in the style of the FIFA world cup. Each 4chan board gets a team with 23 AI players. The boards name the players to board related things and appoint managers who are in charge of team tactics.
Here's an example of one of the most awesome /mlp/ moments in the cup:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTiIhEQoIqI&
/mlp/ had to win this game in order to go on into the knockouts. Facing a draw with no time left on the clock, /mlp/ had only one chance left. Everyone was certain /mlp/ was out, and then >rape happened.
Reading though that thread again is great. Hype from /mlp/ 4cc is so much fun. Can't wait for the spring babbies with all these big teams in it fighting for their lives.
Comments gave a pretty good idea of what happened, but more interesting to see it actually play out. Might look into watching this later.
Looks smaller than the ones from /vg/? Anyway doesn't look too bad, you should definitely try some more when it makes more sense (although I doubt anyone would complain about cards for sacked players)
I did it at that size as per the usual dimensions for real cards. But yeah, once players get updated I might do a full set, and will try to think of some new styles. That one was a prototype so to speak. Anyway, here's the only other one I had which was for Tracy. Same thing, random stats. I might have raised some stats a little bit but eh, it's just a prototype.
Unless of course the current sort of style is good enough. I had some ideas for other styles. Maybe I'll do some more prototypes with different styles, but because we don't have eternal cup threads, I would have to wait a while for the next thread. Maybe I could do a few different styles for prototypes, post them at the start of the cup, then at the end of the cup and once the Autumn files are released I can make a full set based on the style prototype guys thought was best.
Test Pony has been very busy with player aesthetics, and the results are absolutely amazing.
He wanted to save the reveal for Autumn, but I'll bug him to post some preview WIP pictures.
Are aesthetics the reason he doesn't want to go to 12 or is it something else? I figure putting so much time in the new blenders only to have them for such a short time must be frustrating.
I'll add a webm from the days of 1.04 where what happened in this was actually possible.
It's incredibly fun. Just hundreds of people watching steams with commentators screwing around and being idiots, while everyone just chats and shit posts and roots for their board in chat.
No idea why but I look forward to it every cup.
I wish Dan was in the 4CC, even if he was on /co/'s team. There'd probably be a bunch of cancellation jokes for him
Hopefully this thread stays alive long enough.
Time to get these prototype things rolling. I'm nowhere near Ved levels of graphical wizardry, but this is fun. At least it'll keep me occupied for the mean time.
If Orel would be on /co/'s team, it would be hilarious if he was the star player in a /co/-/pol/ match.
Also have some old shit from some kind anon from the /vg/ thread.
/r/ing a good-quality webm of that moment when M.A. Larson does his hand-kissing thing at the camera. I need it for nonsexual reasons.
More edits. Dan in 4CC when?
>letting the thread die.
The good days. If only I could erase the damages of 1.12 from my mind.
Oh, I wouldn't worry. As >>19339069 said, Dusty will never be freed.
>Aesthetics/fun come before rigging
These 2 don't make sense together, PES12 was nothing but 'pass/throughball the ball to your gold striker'. And remember /a/ was at its best in PES12 as well.
Also there are so many more aesthetic possibilities in PES14 than in any other previous version, yes we have no LOD, but every PES version has its limitations.
Regarding Blenders in PES14, yes they are a bit more complex than in 13, but we also have many more possibilities than before. Just look at the (shitty) pony blenders I made, those would have been impossible to get right in PES13 or 12.
And while 1.12 is not really bugged as it looks, with the right fixes it's really playable, but just not the way we want it for the 4cc. I already have been tinkering around a lot with PES14 and Fileloader versions and settings to get closer to an even better and less bugged version than Winter. But I can't help it that /admin/ is such a fucking circlejerk that refuses to listen to anyone outside from it that they'd rather shitpost anything I say about a fixed version of PES14, because 'he just want to save his Blenders'.
And yes, if we really go back to PES12, I'll quit, but I'll not let that happen without a fight. Because I'd hate to see the cup go down because /admin/ is filled with incompetent idiots who they think they know best and would rather echo chamber their own opinions/ideas to insane levels than listen to any outside criticism.
Also fuck sorting PES12 files, at least PES14 is a whole lot easier as well.
>Tottori becomes new commish
>we go back to PES12
>/a/ proceeds to win both Autumn and Winter
I can't be the only one who is suspicious.
The one where he screams "BOOORIIIISSSSS"? Sorry, I'm not sure what you mean by asking if I recorded it.
Thanks; I'd say generally 2 weeks or so altogether, though it's probably longer when you take into account the time spent on creating some of the 3D assets.
I really, really hope that /admin/ listens to your advice and takes a long, serious look at the work you've done with the gameplay tweaks. I'd absolutely hate to see you quit; the blender stuff you've done for the team (and for others, too) is incredible, and organizing and implementing the aesthetics for the entire cup is (most likely) a thankless job that I doubt anyone else is going to want to step up to take.
Yeah, that one. I couldn't find it in all the intros you posted. I think it goes BORRIISS and then something about being caged or trapped in his apartment, I can't really remember it well.
Why are we going to PES12?
Is PES15 not going to be on PC?
We are CONSIDERING (well, tottori and the 4ccc are) going back to 2012 if 2015 turns out to be substandard. This is too early for speculations, considering the game isn't even out yet.
I'll bump with another style of card. Bit of a higher resolution than before with some more text. I might change the description yet, but eh, here it is anyway.
It's supposed to be a sort of overall player rating. Although maybe because of the choking it would be a little lower, but I won't get too autistic about it. I could always change things later and label it "Player rating".
I think putting the player's jersey number there might be better.
Here, maybe this is beter.
The scarves are always a thing.
I'm going to run a poll this weekend to gauge the popularity of our players. People will be given the opportunity to vote for their favorites, and the least popular will be candidates that might eventually get the sack when we need room for replacements.
We're not really going to make drastic changes this long before autumn, but I figure this is a good time to evaluate the roster now that the hype has died down a bit.
>inb4 Derpy replaced
you can replace her, but her spirit will never leave our hearts.
lel. yeah I had a feeling you were talking about mine.
Like I said, it's more to check how people view the current lineup. We're not sacking anyone yet.
N-no, it's ok...you don't have to lie to me...I'm just happy I w-was part of the team for so long...
I'll love you forever, guys
Indeed I did. the price was kinda high, but worth it.
you'll see a more accurate template i'm working on in >>19344955 which scarf anon and I hope to distribute much like the scarves.
right where I want to be
great taste in pone by the way
captcha: addiction gethyp
N-n-no Anon, of c-course I'm not jealous...
It would be through the same company. After getting mine, I learned they also do complete custom jerseys in addition to their kit designer app thing.
So I'm building these new ones around a custom template they provide. The price is cut down dramatically if ordered in bulk.
If we ordered let's say 20, it would cost $52 per jersey instead of $137, which is what I paid for just one.
The problem we're having right now is that because it'll cost roughly double if not more than a scarf, if scarf anon tried to receive payments for the jerseys,
his paypal account would get flagged for money laundering. which I think happened before. So we have to come up with a solution to that.
What, so if guys recieve payments with PayPal they assume it is money laundering? What the fuck? I thought the purpose of PayPal was for the electronic transfer of money, so what makes them think it is money laundering?
>le pony sportif on the sleeve
And have a WIP Tracy that is almost done, because I keep getting bugged to post pics of my work in the thread.
Just need to wait for our Tracy expert (BGP) to wake up for the latest critique so I can finish it and chalk it off my to do list. And please don't start kicking in open doors and state what's obviously still wrong with it because I am not blind nor stupid.
If people trust you enough, have them send checks, maybe. Also, have you looked into Amazon Payments (or whatever it's called)? Also I remember there's a website dedicated to hating Paypal, and I think they suggest alternatives.
Can you edit a Vorpal blade in her hand/hoof model?
We'll have to see what scarf anon wants to do.
He'll be the one handling the money/shipping side of things since he's already got experience with that from the scarves. I'm just designing them
I love that Twi Blender so much, it would be devastating to lose it.
Why does Tottori hate aesthetics?
Because apparently PES14 aesthetics are too hard.
Which I really disagree with, they are just incredibly time consuming. Twilight took me 77 hours for example. All other Pony blenders after that at least 6 hours each. I think by now I've almost spent 200 hours on PES14 Blenders alone, if you'd count all other aesthetics (for PES14), you'd come close to 250.
I've had offers to make Blenders for money already. So I don't really have to do this all for free.
Of course The Burdened will get his elongated neck. JCT could become transparent now with the knowledge I've acquired, but the problems would still be the eyes, hands and legs being completely visible.
I think I'll have to disappoint you there. Currently everything is already being taken care off, I really can't think of anything you could help with at this moment.
I'm kind of worried for the cup right now. Tottori's new rules place an enormous amount of pressure on small managers to involve their boards, which is incredibly demanding considering 4CC threads are banned almost everywhere on 4chan.
/mlp/ really gets an easy ride in this respect; we have a huge, involved fanbase and are explicitly allowed to have cup threads. Same goes for /sp/.
My worry is that this will cause small managers to quit, leaving us with an essentially dead cup. Say what you like about Boris's tenure as commish, but the fact that every single board had a live manager was unprecedented and made the cup feel truly legitimate as a spectator event.
His kit will still be completely visible as well. The head and hair are the only things I can make disappear. I should be able to have the hands and legs disappear as well, but that will mean the hands and legs will disappear for literally every player.
And add the fact there will be massive shitstorm
(most likely from me)when we will really switch to some shitty PES version.
Usually I am against full-kit wankers. Met this girl at the Con though and I have to say, had to let it slide. It was a damn good cosplay and a nice kit. Really want one for myself as well as a scarf at some point.
>they are just incredibly time consuming
And not even always that, apparently /vp/'s Spring blenders were ALL done in like a week or two. Probably less complex but they still looked really good.
You know, there's never enough fan art
>You know, there's never enough fan art.
Cup art is best art.
Speaking of which, for everyone who was looking for the team photo from this past Winter, TP simply moved it to the page dedicated to the roster (which also contains the previous team photos as well), which can be found here:
Literally only four people recognized or commented on that cosplay. Which one were you? I'm assuming you were in line with us. Also, thanks? I'm not sure if you're saying the cosplay was cool or that I was cool in spite of it but thanks.
Granted it was Sunday, but not one other scarf clad anon approached me. They all seemed to be tromping around with Horse News.
I had about the same amount comment on mine at BABScon outside of the organized /mlp/-HN group.
Only two actually knew what it was, the others just thought it was because I liked soccer or something.
But I was quite surprised how many people wanted to take a picture of me.
Glad to see you got yours. Looks really good even though you didn't use my design. I figured you didn't though because it would've been like $180 extra right?
Oh, hey! I really wanted to but you are correct. It would have been more than double the original price to do so. It still came out decently though. Besides the wig I'm pretty happy about how it came together. If you end up doing a run for jerseys I might try to upgrade to the more correct one.
I also feel less bad after hearing the reactions you got for yours. I'm hoping to use the cosplay again in the future provided the uniform doesn't change too much in the upcoming cup updates.
>for everyone who was looking for the team photo from this past Winter
Just to clarify, I think it should (also) be on our main wiki page since first there's no newer one and second it's fucking amazing.
I saw the pictures that got posted after I had come home, and was sad I didn't see this cosplay. I would have said something fore sure. At very least I would have shouted giddy up at you.
We just need to replace The Hiatus with Flash Sentry and all will be fine.
bumping with cup art. I need more. lost most of it in a hard drive failure
I saw you at the Con, meant to stop and complement you on it but you seemed to be in a hurry. Was glad to see someone go all out. I want to get my hands on a shirt and scarf to wear out to the bar trot next year.
Maaaan, yeah Sunday was a lot of last minute running around. Its a shame I would have been ecstatic to stop and chat.
Its comical. I was with a group of people holding life size Twilight plush who had its own scarf. People would comment on it with noticing the full kit standing next to it. Perhaps the scarf is taking on new meaning beyond the cup.
>Perhaps the scarf is taking on new meaning beyond the cup.
This makes me sad. All those HN fags running around in scarves made me glad I decided not to bring mine along.
Was this the plush you were talking about?
Yes it is. The girl in the blue wig in that photo made it. She's one of my roommates and was running around cosplaying Milky for most of the weekend after selling out her stock at her table.
>/a/ was at its best in PES12
nigga the only notable thing /a/ did during their time in PES12 (outside of some >friendlies) was beat /m/ when /m/ were actually a team that showed up to games in form and won some of the games they showed up to
unless you meant /m/, in which case i'm gayer than you are
He's just pulling shit out of his ass to convince you people that he and the rest of /pes14/ didn't fuck up and that tottori is somehow bad. He already did it once with the Captaincy card shit, you people should know better.
>>Perhaps the scarf is taking on new meaning beyond the cup.
>This makes me sad. All those HN fags running around in scarves
This. But honestly this was only a matter of time
Horse News are the cancer, they're bringing in autistic faggots (just look at their comment section), excuse shitty research and sensationalism with "but it's just a joke :^)" and completely fail at satire. They're the new pony thread simulators, blending /mlp/ culture down into a homogeneous pulp to feed to the masses so they have their five minutes of fame.
Because I'm an omniscient demigod whose judgement is perfect when it comes to horsefucking.
Want proof? I know you fap to candy pony ass.
I don't know, but am willing to bandwagon and make sweeping judgements when it comes to people who I don't hold in very high esteem. I do this because I'm a total bastard.
Funny how the thread explodes into rampant shitposting the moment /vg/ shows up.
4ccg is the worst thread on /vg/. Not even /dsg/ or SC2 beats it in how shitty it is, it's amazing.
When it's not filled with conspiracy theories and butt tears about rules/managers/their breakfast, it's stale memes from /sp/, or just spamming with someone's trip on.
>yfw TP and the aesthetics guys put the classic >rape face on the new one
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.
PES15 will be out in like November, and even if it magically fixes all the problems PES14 had, it'll still take the mod community until spring to kick into gear. It's extremely unlikely at this point that PES15 will be used for the Wintercup.
He knows very well he is doing, he is trying to start shit here because he will get support here.
Like how he tried to claim he made the whole capitancy rule and Boris change it to sabotage /mlp/ in Winter.
Then he's still a faggot for claiming that /admin/ is a circlejerk of incompetent idiots, because that's far from the truth.
You can call Boris incompetent for not making the drastic changes to the manager/board interactions that were made by tottori, and you can call Sexcopter incompetent for not testing things he wants to move to, but all in all, /admin/ isn't incompetent, and they're also not planning a conspiracy against /mlp/.
In fact, /mlp/ is usually the most positively received board out of the cancer trio, as weird as that may sound. Nobody in /admin/ is trying to rig it for any team.
Statements like "if it doesn't go my way then I'll leave" are counter-productive. If /admin/ were impressed by that statement, then we'd need to worry, because they'd be listening to the opinion of a single fucking manager.
It will be, because any player can get a custom face.
Just add the old version of >rape's face rather than a real person or whatever and there you have it!
/sp/ have done it, they use LeBron's actual face on their player, pic related.
He did, those faggots are just mad that their LE SEKRIT CLUB SCARFXDXD is actually nice enough to be worn by people outside of their autistic group.
I think its cute that people put it on their plushes, fucking deal with it cunts.
/a/, /sp/, /mlp/?
I probably should know this, but I try to stay out of /4ccg/ as much as possible. I just watch the matches, cheer for my teams, and chill in the /mlp/ thread.
It's not the people who put them on plushies that I have a problem with, it's the folks who wear them around like fucking guy fawkes masks, giggling to themselves because they're anonemoose, and legion, and they neither forget nor forgive. exdee exdee, etc.
TP has been doing a ton of work not just for /mlp/, but for the cup as whole. He's been the guy sorting out the whole cup's aesthetics setup and making sure it ran properly on the stream. He's also been one of the guys who's been putting a lot of work into figuring out how to fix PES2014 since summer, so when you combine those two things I can understand why he'd be pissed off when it's announced that we're going back to some ancient several year old version.
Just ignore the instigating 4ccg shitposters.
Well there are always autistics ruining things, the way those faggots were talking it sounded like they were mad people were wearing the scarfs and then not knowing about 4chan divegrass.
>Just ignore the instigating 4ccg shitposters.
Even though they point out factually wrong information in his post?
See, people aren't really making any real arguments but just strawmen right now, saying "X is just because Y wants it that way".
There is no good discussion possible with that, and then telling people to completely ignore one side on the base of who's making the argument is bullshit.
Fingers crossed, TP I believe in you.
No, I meant the fact that 4ccg loves to pull shit out of context while they instigate hatred among fanbases. Just because he was wrong on one thing doesn't mean he's wrong about everything. Talk about strawmanning.
He didn't provide us with any other arguments than "/a/ was at their best in 12" and "It's harder to make Blenders in 12", and the latter is an odd one when he at the same time states that he's annoyed when people think he just wants to stick with 14 because of the blenders.
If he has actual points against 12 other than Blenders, then why isn't he presenting them? There are plenty of arguments against 14. The number of times player just forgot that they were chasing after a ball, or let it roll out of the field just through their own idiocy in 14 was staggering. 14 WC had the fucked up GK rolls.
If you have points to make then fucking make them.
/s/ have a really good team, their manager has put a lot into their aesthetics, so they all have female looking faces, and their body is edited to look slender with wide hips and thighs, etc.
They won't have tits though, nor is it possible to get them.
Reason I was asking was because I thought it would be wise to do a number of different styles, then see which one anons thought was best. While someone might like one style, they could potentially like a future one I have yet to make even more, if you catch my meaning.
>there are people in this thread right now that believe /mlp/ will advance to Winter
Sorry kids, but I've been waiting to beat up this board for a long long time, and that autistic Test Pony better bring his A-Game (just like when he was with /vp/ amirite ;3) if he wants to compete.
Thanks, got it though Inked Playmats.
Here's my old one I had done a year back. There wasn't a Rarara version yet so I went with Vinyl.
I fucking love SpaceKitty's art.
I'm in a rough spot dude. If I'm grouped with you guys the pressure's on for me to kick the crap out of you or else I"m a planted ponyfag. But I just want us to have a friendly match together and enjoy the silly competition for what it is, is that so hard?
Can we change the goalhorn for our team to the following:
If not, can we at least change the goalhorn of one specific player to that? It's too good to not use.
There's no way we're changing our current goalhorn, but there has been talk of using different victory anthems depending on who man of the match was, for example this one for Twilight:
As funny and cheeky as it is, I can't see it being a replacement to our based as fuck goalhorn.
It would be a good temp goalhorn if we played against /an/, but that wouldn't be til winter at the earliest.
Perhaps even a good alternate goalhorn for Horsefucker, but he seldom scores.
Our current goalhorn is just perfect. It provides this real hype feeling when it's played. Especially during an intense moment.
I mean, go back and watch some winter cup matches and tell me that having a goalhorn like this wouldn't kill that adrenaline fueled hyp feeling that some of those goals undoubtedly gave off.
>Our current goalhorn is just perfect. It provides this real hype feeling when it's played. Especially during an intense moment. I mean, go back and watch some winter cup matches and tell me that having a goalhorn like this wouldn't kill that adrenaline fueled hyp feeling that some of those goals undoubtedly gave off.
In light of the new "poll your board" rule, why not put it to a vote? Specifically, a simple:
Should "Get Ready To Die" remain our some goal horn or should we open the door to signature/alternative goal horns?
Management has enforced "Get Ready To Die"-only as a matter of preference and quality control, but the fact is that decision should really be put in the hands of the board, same as a roster change. If the majority of people want to keep it as our exclusive horn, then there's no harm putting it to a vote. If people want to hear different goal horns, then management can take suggestions and do a new poll.
The idea is that for big changes, such as medal player promotions/demotions and goalhorn/anthem replacements, we prefer to base the outcome on actual thread discussions. Not on polls that are easily bombed or can be missed by a majority of fans.
Keep in mind we're in the middle of the hiatus, meaning a lot of people don't frequent these threads as much as they would otherwise. We've had several poll results reverted before simply because /mlp/'s opinion on things often changes drastically over the course of even a single day.
The actual reason the team lineup never really changes much is because /mlp/ has a lot of fans, and big changes suggested by some people tend to upset a whole load of other people. It's very difficult to reach a consensus.
On top of that some boards really like to bomb our poll results (I had to scrap a good amount of troll votes when I ran a poll last winter, and according to Shadow, his polls weren't much better), meaning it takes a lot of time to figure out what people really want. Quality Control will always be a thing, but it's mostly to keep the team clear of one day fads, troll suggestions or cancer like the /mlp/-league.
Regarding actual polls, I already said earlier I was planning to do a popularity poll this weekend. I will make a poll with all the bronze players, and people will have to vote on their favorite players. We will wait with changing the actual lineup until we're closer to Autumn, which also leaves more room for new content that we can add as players. But the poll should be a good indication of which players are the least popular, which are then put on notice for when we need room for additional players.
>The idea is that for big changes, such as medal player promotions/demotions and goalhorn/anthem replacements, we prefer to base the outcome on actual thread discussions. Not on polls that are easily bombed or can be missed by a majority of fans.
But the procedure outlined by the new commissioner specifies polls, I'm sure in part because it provides metrics for participation and ensure accountability to the boards in a way that subjective "here's what we got from a thread" decisions cannot. Threads are just as easily bombed by trolls or missed by fans, but unlike a thread a poll tells you exactly how many people you reached.
>We've had several poll results reverted before simply because /mlp/'s opinion on things often changes drastically over the course of even a single day.
That's why you leave polls open for longer than a single day and keep the roster open to change so that players can be switched back out when interest passes away.
>The actual reason the team lineup never really changes much is because /mlp/ has a lot of fans, and big changes suggested by some people tend to upset a whole load of other people. It's very difficult to reach a consensus.
Strictly speaking, that's exactly what a poll does: measure the consensus of the majority. Tottori isn't asking for uniform approval of changes by the board, just the participation of the board rather than the autocratic rule of a manager. If people don't want to see a change, they should vote. That's how it works.
>On top of that some boards really like to bomb our poll results (I had to scrap a good amount of troll votes when I ran a poll last winter, and according to Shadow, his polls weren't much better), meaning it takes a lot of time to figure out what people really want. Quality Control will always be a thing, but it's mostly to keep the team clear of one day fads, troll suggestions or cancer like the /mlp/-league.
The poll site they're designing will have protocols in place to prevent poll bombing, like board culture questions and IP tracking, none of which are available for use in a thread discussion.
>Regarding actual polls, I already said earlier I was planning to do a popularity poll this weekend. I will make a poll with all the bronze players, and people will have to vote on their favorite players.
How does that address the goal horn question?
Polls are merely suggested because they're an easy way to prove a board has support. For large teams like /mlp/, no one really questions the fact whether they have fans, hence polls are not necessary. Ofcourse we will still run them, because without them it's difficult to reach a consensus about simple changes, such as roster changes.
For big changes, though, polls are terrible. There needs to be overwhelming support before we'll agree to make changes to the medal player lineup or the music. You can't do that with polls. It needs to be discussed.
Don't forget we have a long time to go until Autumn. Big decisions made in a hurry only lead to regret.
>PG = Penalty Goal
>4444 = magical quads
>D = Derpy
Time for another style of card.
I forsee this being a useful gif for tottori's /a/utumn Rigathon.
For fuck's sake.
And I also forgot to put in the position and playstyle above the pink bar with "34 >RAPE". Fucking hell. Nevermind, I'll edit it in for another time when it comes to determining the best style for a full set. At least the main style is there for that one. I might spruce up the first one a little bit and then do 1 more style, making it a total of 4. That should be enough, unless I get any more ideas beyond the 4th.
Meant purple, but whatever. I've got a webm here that I've had for some time but unsure whether I posted it before, so here it is anyway. An amazing clearance by Horsefucker.
