/mlp/ banned from Tenko's Unfriendlies
An /mlp/ manager applied for the manager position on our team.
But because of update_guy's retarded prejudice, we will be stuck with a shitty team for the rest of the cup's entire history.
Can you convince the /m/ council to disband so that one of you can help us gitgud?
Don't get the obsession with that song but its a nice jam
I thought so as well but now I'm sure he's for real
They also won't be hosted on the 4cc channel because of it
The cup is so autistic about us that they just let Sou ban us because if anyone said anything against him it would be just a wave of shitposting about planted ponyfags and horsefucker conspiracies
Get used to the double standards mate
>An /mlp/ manager
Do you mean one of our team's current managers, or a manager who just has /mlp/ as a home board? I wasn't aware that any of our guys were considering jumping ship.
As to your question, well, I suppose you'll just have to wait until the point where the /m/ council's hatred of getting colonies dropped on their heads exceeds their hatred of horsefuckers.
Or the point when they do the decent thing and commit sudoku for the dishonor of turning a good team into today's >/m/.
>yfw /trash/ gets a team and makes it to summer
>yfw /trash/ wins summer and gets a star
>yfw two mlp teams with stars
Mods deleted the /co/ thread.
C-can we hang our here?
I'm sure /jp/ hates our guts for letting /int/ win.
You guys are hopeless, but hey: you don't get to choose your brothers.
Of course brah, you were always alright in my books.
>Because horsefuckers are the cancer of this cup. Sure, they were fine at the beginning but they have weaseled there way into high ranking positions in this cup and have expanded out to various managers. Success means nothing when you're constantly accused of being a planted horsefucker team. We, built this team on homegrown managers, and I'll be damned if I let any mercenary run this team. Like it or not, that is how we roll.
Can someone reason with update_goy?
looks like his title of "Saviour of the White Race" should go to Spurdo instead.
Gotta make some waves on /m/, honestly
If enough people on the board tell them to fuck off, they maybe will
Tbh if they find out that you discussed that here everything happening will be just a horsefucker coup/conspiracy and they'll never back down
>Nobody is allowed to browse other boards regularly to run this team.
This cunt serious?
>they'd rather get kicked off the official channel than let /mlp/ play in their sandbox
Holy hell, the salt is real, isn't it?
You need to tell him that his tactic sucks. If it didn't work for 3 years it's not gonna work for another, we might be cancerous but at least we are doing something right.
I just love how liking 1(one) show makes you immediately a planted merc
Yet there are no planted sonicfags, pokefags (or are there?) or banefags
It's just little old us ^:)
The worst part about this is that it's going to make The Trash come back despite all the times he screwed /co/ over just for the sake of other boards having a good laugh.
So, concerning the friendlies situation, it seems that /mlp/, i.e. we, doesn't have a problem with not being part of the friendlies. As I stated in the last thread, >we have both the /mlp/ test Cup and possibly the JMC2 to look forward to, so there will be games with /mlp/ in them before Winter.
Considering that, I really don't think this is a good reason to not host Tenko's friendlies on the official twitch. In the end, he streams, so he can decide, and as explained it doesn't deny /mlp/ any pre-Winter matches.
So could anyone from /merit/ who reads this (Ved, bent, NBD, whoever) or of the managers please ask Boris to reconsider his position, if you agree with this? I don't want this kind of silly pettiness get in the way of fun divegrass. I know it's not hard to just go to Tenko's stream, but it's just stupid to not host him over something as meaningless as this.
>you're constantly accused of being a planted horsefucker team
/m/'s management team actually makes decisions based on the shitposting of the 2 dozen memesters and autists who hang out in /4ccg/?
Anon, I think your board council just went full retard.
Alright, who /co/ here and knew this was pretty much how it was going to go down?
Merit are de facto running the whole cup. Its members are based on, you guessed it, merit to the cup. So you got the streamers -Bors, Sou, Gracen I think, Ved with the hyp, Tony who keeps aesthics in check, f4r who takes care of servers, bent and NBD who do modding things I don't know shit about
HOLY SHIT FUCKING NINE POINT ZERO
Saw it coming and I'm still disappointed.
Not even mad.
Not even disappointed.
I saw this coming and knew we had no chance.
We got rid of fucking Flash and somehow got rid of Hypercrisis, we added in fucking Rick, ANTS, and Ronnie
He's a nice guy, but the player is shit, and adding him in has done nothing. There's no anger, there's no disappointment, there's just a large feeling of nothing.
>Reasoning with the guy who was, and probably still is, incapable of understanding that pf did not promise him a poster but simply said that he would maybe try to do posters he gets requested, and felt so slighted over it he brought it up at every occasion.
Sorry, but I fear there's nothing to do there. Especially not from us, since he seems to actually believe in the horsefucker conspiracy.
I am not aware of any of the current managers asking to join /m/. Assuming this is true and not a ruse, I honestly don't know who it could possibly be among the former managers, apart from Norml potentially.
>being a filthy merc
Not in my house.
It's really a measure of whether Boris wants this pettiness of Tenko to be officially sanctioned. So I think it's perfectly right to deny him the ability to put the official stamp on it. As you said, it's easy enough to host on his channel, there's not much harm done.
If the board wants a manager sacked /merit/ will likely either tell them to listen to the board or sack them. At the end of the day the managers are supposed to represent their board. So if they don't, they're not doing their jobs properly.
Used to be more on /co/ back when we were allowed, but yeah, this hurts
How can anyone pilot a colony that's already crashed? ( :^
Kind of a shit move though. I wouldn't want any other team to have that happen to them, so I think it's right for /merit/ to say that shit isn't okay. Everyone's okay with them being unfriendlies and /mlp/ has their own events, so it's fine really. Just more fuel for the ABhorsefucker brigade though, because you can't treat /mlp/ fairly
Yeah considering the fucking cheeky smiley the guy dropped with the post I'm assuming it wasn't serious
Thanks for yesterday's stream bby
>If enough board fans called for sacking the managers and they refused, I'm sure /merit/ would step in at that point.
Improbable, since /vg/ had a similar situation, but the 4CCC didn't act against DeMessi even when half of /vg/ called for it.
Getting rid of good players, adding in shit ones. I blame what I usually blame the board's now shit(ier) quality on, crossboarders having a say in board culture.
Personally I blame /co/ drop in quality due to you guys defeating us back in 2013 and ever since then sans recent Spring /co has been shit. Also the Tumblr stigma 4ccg has against /co doesn't help with us being liked.
Fine, if not "good" than "classic" players. There was a system and ever so gradually that system was being broken.
>There are people who seriously want The Flush back
Vocal idiots due to him being a 4ccg meme.
Yeah he pulling his weight during a match where we were down a man due to red card was great but that doesn't excuse him from the many times where he blew it for /co/ which is how he got popular in the first place.
Yeah I don't really mind that we won't play two games before the cup itself, especially considering what else is prepared.
But excluding someone from a cup-wide event just because of your crippling autism is shitty and it doesn't matter which board it affects. If you're gonna make up your own rules, you're gonna stream on your own channel.
>that fucking anthem
rip ears didn't expect that
God damn it. What is up with the moderation there?
Shes a failed dress maker and the only "stallion" who actually finds her sorry rump attractive is a baby dragon.
Her parents are hicks, she disowned her family. All her friends are plebs.
I would be sad too if this happened to me
Does that even work yet
Whatever he is, it's exactly as you said. Made up title.
Sure, he could have input that they might take under consideration, but if he's not actually part of management, then his word isn't final, it holds about as much weight as any other Anon.
If he's got the issue with a horsefucker joining the team, then he should get over himself and go look at /f/. Sou can set aside his burning hatred for horsefuckery to work with Smudgey, so I'm sure someone that happens to browse /mlp/ wouldn't be the worst thing to happen to them. For all they know, he browses /m/ just as much, maybe even more. Who knows, who cares?
Not clear. He stepped down as board relations and live manager, but seems to still be in the circle jerk as an "elder." Not sure what that means, but it's business as usual making /m/ all about him.
Come on /v/ be good for once I have currently 14 RB$ on you, I believe
Yeah, seen that, it's basically /redmlp/ by now
If the guy gets in contact with the council and proves that he actually visits the board and knows their culture, there should be no problem, agreed.
What are you currently listening to, anons?
Right now I'm endulging myself in some Alvin and the Chipmunks played at 12 RPM
Not even kidding
Time for /v/ faggots.
I don't care if they're dead, I want to see a win. Even if that means taking /d/ out with them.
Never realized how much suffering it was being an /m/ fan
I like /d/ but I don't want /v/ to finish with 2 points at the bottom of their group in a babby, tbqh
Well when they got this fag speaking for them like he owns the place, then yeah. Sure seems pretty shitty.
Can't even have this game.
Someone really needs to look into /v/.
I'm sorry, but did /v/ already lose? Oh, that's right. The game isn't even over yet. In fact, it's only halftime. Does not having the lead at halftime count as a loss? Is that what you're saying? Because if you're saying that I can assure you that you're wrong. Why would you make this post when the game is still on?
Actually, /v/ just need to not lose. Well fuck anyway
See, the problem with that thought is /co/ actually did pretty reasonable this cup, they had two games that were goalfests. It's just they had the lesser side of them.
/v/ on the other hand...
I think /v/ might actually be worse than /co/...
P-Please stop, /d/...
I'm sorry for what I said earlier...
>/v/ getting rekted by /d/
don't let 4ccg see this post, it might trigger them
Fuck what they think. Why do you think I'm here?
Gabe can like pones all he damn wants
even they are disgusting, so long as he stays as based as he is.
>/m/ is shit
>/v/ is shit
>/co/ is shit
Maybe in Spring
>both /v/ Gold Medals score
Well... Guess today wasn't a total loss.
Well done Sanic.
>implying he hasn't turned to the dark side, trying to jew the innocent gamer out of all their shit
>paying for mods etc
>paying for mods etc
He wasn't even part of that, he was in the middle of eye surgery and recovery and crap. Even so, it was a step in a branched direction that was met with backlash for obvious reasons, but that's Bethesda being greedy cunts for ya.
"Let's try to increase sales to Skyrim since nobody is playing it anymore by openly advertising community content and selling it!"
>couldn't have a /co/ thread
>drawfags being banned left and right
>drawthreads are almost a wasteland
>almost daily "characters that are literally you", "It's a ____ episode" and other shit threads
Alright then. /v/ couldn't win a single game.
No reason to live anymore, but fuck it, I'll see how everything plays out.
May as well see who becomes dangerous competition for the horsefuckers in Winter.
I'm guessing this is funnier when your altitude is 4 million and a half feet
They're just trying to cover their salt and their hurt butts. Let them. They know who dominates this relationship.
That is also the only thing they can do about us, let them have it.
They never liked us. So we made ourselves the most hated thing on 4ccg to unite them under the power of friendship.
That is good I'm not ready to cry again after yesterday
Let them. Take solace in that they won't or can't change anything.
Good riddance. /jp/ is a shit board and you did the right thing.
You may be shit at virtual divegrass, but you guys still have a special place in my heart.
We don't even play and there hasn't been a single day without someone mentioning /mlp/.
They're all sick.
It was indeed a great day of memeball.

Hey, uhh... Milky Way seems to be getting semi-popular again, but unfortunately she's on /trash/...
That doesn't mean that she's gotta be redesigned
(or dare I say retired)to look a little more trashy on /mlp/'s team, does she?
>/trash/ could have cup threads
>fans of other boards with nazi mods could go there
>ponies are there anyway
Non-ponyfags can't catch a break
You know in sports and stuff that one team that everyone loves to hate? That one team that everyone rallies around to express their mutual hatred? We are that team. We are the focal point because no one else can handle it, and the anger and venom thrown our way makes our victories that much more satisfying.
They also played a celebratory video before that, check 33:15 in http://archive.klaxa.eu/Autumn_2015/Matchday_8/07.%20-%20sp%20vs%20sci.mkv .
>hated by everyone
>constant accusations of cheating
>has everyone else obsessed
/mlp/ is literally the New England Patriots of the 4CC. It's all so clear now
When you think about it, we're the team of harmony.
Whenever we play, /mlp/ unites under one thread, throwing aside our personal salt for friendly banter, hyping for our teams, fanart and videos. Then whenever the others sees our team play, they unite against us, putting down local rivalry to try and bring the bantz against us, like that ending from Watchmen.
Uhh... Lets see.
Most of these aren't actual big preferences, some are probably just who I think'll win.
>/pol/ (though I wish it were possible for them and /lit/ to go through
>/x/ (as if it matters)
The only one I actually care about is /fit/. Im a bit of a /fit/izen, and while they're already through, there's the 12 points to get. Everyone else I can take it or leave it, don't really care.
>/lit/ is just as good as /pol/ so either way, happy and sad whoever goes through and whoever stays
>/x/. It don't matter though
>/out/. They've impressed me this cup. I want them to go far.
All I ask is for some proper comfy
I don't see the appeal in this american form of entertainment
This is fair considering we run /4ccg/
I couldn't give two shits about the other teams
since /int/, /d/, and /sci/ already played.
>Sou having to rely on horsefuckers for hype vids and kit compliance
>Sou actually hates /mlp/
I feel like our time in the cup may be ending. This whole "unfriendlies" situation seems like the start of a process that can't be slowed or undone.
I'm not coming at this from the view that "/mlp/ needs to be involved in everything." It doesn't. The problem is that the whole "horsefuckers vs. everybody else" meme was taken seriously and has begun affecting cup policy. It's the start of a gradual segregation that is antithetical to the spirit of the cup and will culminate in /mlp/'s departure from all official participation, if this trend continues.
I know /4ccg/ is reading, so to clarify I'm not asking anybody to force Tenko to include /mlp/ in his stream. I'm just sad that this all happened in the first place and for no good reason. Everybody involved feels like their hands were forced and /mlp/, through no fault of our own, got the shaft as a result. It sucks.
Come on, you're better than this. Sou is a good guy and fun streamer. He might not care for MLP, but if he was a genuine ab/mlp/ blind retard, be wouldn't let people like PMB commentate and he wouldn't coordinate with people like Ved to keep the Babbies going. Sou loves the cup, same as us. It's the one thing we have in common and happens to be the only thing we need to have in common.
>Sou loves the cup
That's the only reason he lets people like PMB commentate, and why he cooperates with >Ved to keep the hyp. It's like parents who really want a divorce staying together until the child is ready to enter college.
>he's a good man
>Got the Twitch account banned because DUDE WEED LMAO
I know he tries his best, and that there are some things he can't control (like his computer crashing or /i/'s blenders), but he doesn't prove to be very responsible. I'd rather have Boris over Sou, any day.
>/mlp/ still forcing this debunked meme to shit on Sou
P R A G U E
Anyway, yeah, the way things are going now makes me a bit more uncomfortable than when this was just lad banter. Hopefully it won't escalate further.
tbqhwy I don't really get the appeal, he's okay but the way everyone's hyping him like he's the second coming of Jesus makes me think it's mostly because fuck ponies lmao
I don't agree, his co-manager is a horsefucker and apparently they get along just fine. He just wants nothing to do with the pones but otherwise he's cool.
Although the whole spring I don't want to do the /mlp/ match because I am so autistic I can't control myself over not rigging it situation makes me sometimes doubt that
Although the whole spring I don't want to do the /mlp/ match because I am so autistic I can't control myself over not rigging it
Yeah, he's childish as fuck in that matter. I mostly agree with the positive stuff that is said about him though.
I seriously hope they aren't this retarded, but considering it's 4chan I'm sure they would be willing to go as far as make an entire new cup just to exclude us. As much as I like seeing people be salty as fuck that's just sad.
The /i/ managers, one of them a self-admitted horsefucker, Intermediate, made a blender with r34 on it.
The aesthetics overlord who is a ponyfag, Tony (you might have heard of him and his fetish), who claims to check every single aesthetics piece and made a rule against porn on blenders (AestheticsAll aesthetics must not break the rules of conduct of the streaming platform used (Twitch Rules of Conduct). By extension, this means no explicit nudity or gore that would make the game likely to be rated 'for adults only' by American standards.) allowed this blender to be on air on a medal player.
This got twitch banned and the blender got changed to a hotpocket.
The Ustream got banned because of daily dose and that's Sou's fault I'll give you that.
Interesting. They seem like such a formidable team in the Group Stages, but always end up choking in the RO16 matches (at least, from what little I've seen of their matches).
Oh, ok. So then I just got the order of events wrong. Not really so much a debunking as a clarification.
fug why ids so hard to choose :-DDD
Great job as usual, Ved. Having the daily hyp vids, complete with Kregg puns, is just such a great part of the Cup viewing experience.
Spurdo deserves it after /benis/ wins their cup desu ^:)
Thanks, you reminded me of yesterday's ponut discussion and gave me a hearty giggle.
kek, don't remind me1
>mfw I was wrong
You can do this, /w/.
I believe now.
Fuck that, I want Doctor Piccolo refs now that I see that option.
Well of course they can't stop talking about us. Don't you know that /mlp/ runs this shit? ^:)
>implying it's us
>implying you're not doing the same by linking
Shill please go and stay go.
You are mentioned as the host, get to have your hyp machine (>implying those still exist) and now it seems you get your refs as well, since Bane is the ref on a /tv/-hosted cup.
Also everyone will be salty and/or butthurt about it because it's us.
Um, well we don't *run* anything, that's the 4CCC as usual.
But as far as who makes the aesthetics for refs and so on, I'd assume that will be Tony. Maybe 3dAnon might help this year? He worked with Ved in Summer.
Stop lying. Nobody knows why the Twitch was ToSed because the correspondence from Twitch never gave a reason. Ved reached out to Twitch after and never got an explanation.
As for Tony, he was not in charge of checking the aesthetics for Autumn. Besides, "checking" the aesthetics just means making sure they aren't broken, not carefully assessing the content of every box head to ensure compliance with Twitch rules. Choose another scapegoat.
I don't go to 4ccg in /vg/. I only check out the stream when THIS specific thread is up. I don't need to crossboard when I already know they're mad about us.
In Spring Tony didn't check /y/ who then crashed the game therefore it's safe to assume he doesn't check shit and just compiles the stuff people send in and claim he works all day and night for the cup when in reality all he does in wank it to ponies.
>That new /sp/ anthem
Fitting for the GOATs
Well, if you want to be a commentator one day, ask to comment on a match or two during one of the test cups during the offseason. If you do a good enough job, they might let you comment in a Babby. And if you do a good job *there*, you can get added to the commentator roll for the main Cups.
>said the user to /mlp/
Oh I'm just livid. I'm so angry I can barely contain my sides.
You're free to open some editing programs and start animating and drawing, but after Tottori (who did the machine) died we stopped using them. There have been some attempts to revive it and Tottori himself even commentated a match or two this cup so maybe there is gonna be something ready for Winter, who knows.
