Use the Applekits. It's the perfect defense because Applejack can't read.
Dubs and /mlp/ loses
>>38588957Awesome pic cant wait for the game
>>38589149I BELIEVE I won't make it tonight so cheer twice as hard on my behalf
If >we win and sci loses or draws >we advance right?>>38589149I BELIEVE
>>38589600And/Or win by more if /sci/ happens to beat /pol/, but otherwise yeah.
>>38589600/mlp/ is win and in.
>>38589600A dude from the last thread made this.
>>38589149I BELIEVE!Hopefully we get Safest Hooves goalkeeping in this match. And hopefully we don't need her to goalkeep much in the first place, because of /mlp/ offense being awake this time and putting in 18 shots on the opposite team's goal, while they struggle to get the ball out of their half of the pitch.
>Friday the 13thSomeone call /x/.>>38589149I BELIEVE
Believe it or not I enjoy a bit of scholarship with my pony. Going for /mlp/ though because it's more fun.
CUP IS LIV
>>38589149IB E L I E V E
A /sci/ win is bad for us, now even if we draw we can be out if /pol/ /sci/ draw and if we lose we have to rely on /pol/ BTFOING /sci/.
>>38589824Aaaand that's bad.We're going to need everyone on high energy for this game, we need to WIN to be safe
POAST WAIFUS FOR LUCK! I BELIEVE
>>38589833>>38589149I BELIEVEGIDDY UP
>>38589833I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE
So right now unless we lose 2-3, /pol/ needs to beat /sci/ by THREE if we lose today, and thats only if we lose by one, also /vr/ has to beat lit...If we draw, everything but a draw tomorow let us through, unless /lit/ btfo /vr/.
>>38589872Red accel had 0 save, it means shit. At best it turns 50/50 into 45/55.Also is that DDLC shit real? I don't even know whats real or fake anymore.
turn on goals
Snowpitty is being a chad mare
>>38589926her and dashie doing the work, but Twilight and best pony still doing shit.
if we tie...are we in trouble?
>it's only /lit/
NOT LIKE THIS
Alright fine, I'll believe. But if they start losing, you only have yourselves to blame for telling me to believe!
WE NEED SOME GOAL AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
I STILL BELIEVE
>>38589936if we tie its doable, if we lose its preeeeeetty bad.
/lit/'s defense is on fucking point
POST MORE WAIFUS NOWI STILL BELIEVE
GOD FUCKING DAMN IT!
it's overis this the first time a team has won their first two games and then still crashed out of a megababby?
people actually thought this team was good lol
Unironically remove managers.
>>38589980Told out of your ass>>38589970Def happened before.
I am very sorry /mlp/, unfortunaltely the conditions were not in our favor, nothing one can do, hihi, oh well...
Management should be utterly embarrassed to have won the first 2 games and still manage to not qualify
>>38588957What's your reasoning for this defense note.
>>38589985Reminderanybody can help management, it's pretty open. People who shit on management can help and join.
What did /mlp/ do to deserve to have the best commentator, SDA, to be our personal commentator effectively? He could pass as a real sports correspondant.
What the FUCKIs twilight doing?
>>38589989/mlp/'s last elite was the 2020 Winter. What were you expecting? This is the fourth babby cup they dropped the ball in.
WE JUST NEED THREE GOALS TO TIE, IT'S STILL GOOD IT'S STILL GOOD
friendly reminder, we had best defense in game one and then this horseshit
who /autumn/ here
>>38589996But they don't need help. The tests always show /mlp/ wining 9/10 times, so clearly it's just the team being unlucky every game they happen to play for real.
What is going on with Best Pony
/mlp/ will never play an Elite again
I'm so glad I'm out to not watch this shitshow lmao
It's fucking over
God fucking dammit
Told you it would happen. That's hows it goes when you vote on S9 memes like Giraffelight and Chad Spike
>>38590018>>38590016>>38590015SO SALTY/)SO SALTY/)
Can at least Sita retire with this?>>38590009First game was /vr/, /vr/ is trash.We should've gone the /pol/ route and gone full aggression. Or kept our world tactic. Everyone says that /mlp/'s world tactic was a monster, why did we switch?And HOLY SHIT TWI IS TRASH.
>>38590014It's clearly time for a change in management.
Which scenario need to play for us to pass?
RAPETWO MOREJUST TWO MORE RAPE YOU CAN DO ITI BELIEVE
>>38590032rape needs to score three more goals
Uuuuuuuuh...bros?I'm thinking we're back.
>>38590032The one where PES crashes right now and /mlp/ scores three more times on the restart.
RAPE WOKE UP
TWO MORE GOALS
RAPE LET"S FUCKING GOOOOOOOOOOOO
>>38590009Because the team's defense is narrow as fuck, there's no fullbacks or wing midfield players, management got too much into their supply running some retarded 3-4-3 and now they got dismantled by a team playing with width.
>>38590032/vr/ need to obliterate /lit/AND/pol/ need to obliterate /sci/Good job management, great scenario
SDA just said we only need ONE more goal??
>>38590034>>38590036>RAPE WILL FIND A WAY
Milky going so hard to salvage she was just in better goal scoring position than >Rape and Twilight.What the fuck.
Oh great, another loss yet AGAIN?Sack the managers, a random number generator would unironically be better.
I don't know if it's just the managers fucking up or deliberately throwing the match. Or if this team has been recently cursed to never ever get out of the Babby cups again. See you fags in 6 months.
What the fuck happened with our goal medals? Beside peetzer, they did jackshit except at the end
>>38590058Milky for medal.
>>38590058>milky MORE FORWARD THAN TWILIGHT AND RAPEhow did managers even manage to get that?
>>38590051/vr/ needs to beat /lit/, score doesn't matter.AND/pol/ needs /sci/ to win by FIVE. that's the hard part.
Our attack is still very good but our defense is dog shit
How many tests?
>>38590058Bless this mare, she tried to hard she went way the fuck out of position from defense because the strikers were doing jack all.
>>38590070the first two games our defence was pretty strongwell, it sucks
>>38590060SO SALTY /)
>>38590067I, for one, welcome our new /pol/ managers.
Sorry for the game. I had a plan and everything fell apart. GG to /lit/.
yeah, I know how I'm feeling...
>>38590060I just think PES said "FUCK /mlp/" the last 2 games.
I knew /mlp/ will loss due to how shit we played vs. /sci/. let see what excuse the manager is going to say.>inb4 but we got PESED
>>38590082Is what it is. You did what you could.
>>38590058Aye, she has to be a medal next time, she deserves it hard
>>38590084I think PES said>fuck everythingwith the last version.
>>38590070Our attack did squat.Twilight lost SO MANY BALLS, and best pony was invisible>>38590082Can we know why you didn't ran the world tactic again?
So to /mlp/ to advance we need /vr/ (a team with 0 wins and -6GD) to beat /lit/.
>>38590067AND not or Correct?Both of these need to happen? Fuuuuck
>>38590095AND /pol/ to win by AT LEAST 5 goals
>>38590093not /mlp/ managers but world cup tactics only works on that patch we have change to 2 patches now and that just doenst work like the wonders it did in world cup
To proceed>/lit/ needs to loseRoot for /vr/ on Sunday>/pol/ needs to beat /sci/ by 4OR>/sci/ needs to beat /pol/ by 6Given /pol/ has slightly better odds I think it's best to root for them on Sunday unless they get completely BTFO
I only hope they drop this shit patch and the next one is more favorable to /mlp/'s tic-tacs
>>38590082After this a discussion on Twilight and Best Pony's positions or stats needs to be made. They're obviously not performing nearly as consistently as they used to. If Hi Anon of all players was able to outperform them by far, something's not working.
>>38590095Seems doable.But in seriousness, meme magic fucking LOVES to have already dead teams wake the fuck up hard when it no longer matters for them.
Well we lost again, thems the dice, and this is /mlp/ after all.
>>38590104/pol/ needs to beat by 5 and /sci/ has to beat by 7. /sci/ has a higher GF than us and head to head, we can't go forward on even GD.
>>38590108You can discuss it as much as you want. It's not changing and you know it.
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>38590111Rollin
we are becoming more and more like /a/ ffs, a laughing stock, a ZERO in the cup.
>>38590104So you're telling me there's a chance
>>38590101>AT LEAST 5 goalskek we are out
>/mlpol/ get their third star>/pol/ can save /mlp/wishful thinking...
Well... demote Best Pony from Captain.Give it to Hi Anon or Twiggie
>>38590105Just like everyone hoped this patch would be more favorable.
>>38590123Well sita is still around, half of /pol/'s management is horsefuckers but they still hate Sita;
lmao get fucked
>>38590124Make Derpy captain so she's always in the net
When are you guys going to finally kill Sita? Seriously, you should go ahead and end him so you would finally stop losing.
>>38590082Something needs to be done about Best Pony, SDA is right she needs to change, or bench her.
>>38590105two more cups...
>>38590119From one of the strongest teams for years to a joke in babies
>>38590135I'm pretty sure Sita didn't manage a single game this cup so direct your blame elsewhere.
>>38590116Everything about this is set in stone. Its players, positions, music, and spot in the babbies.
>>38590139I don't give a flying fuck. Sita still has to get literally fired.
>>38590139he's still listed on the team page.
>>38590103maybe triple C10 isn't as good but narrow 3-4-3 still owns this PES
Can someone explain why after 50 min of nothing /lit/ suddenly made 3 goals?
>>38590144Doesn't mean he managed any of the games.
Well, at least /mlp/ finally beat /pol/ this cup. I'll see you guys in Autumn...
/mlp/ seems to be ded till autumn. I guess i'll be rooting for /co/ or /vp/ if they get to summer.
>>38590149/mlp/ blinked first
>>38590149I thought they switched up tactics or ATs at half time.
>>38590149they turned on goals, but they turned it on for the other team
>>38590119Shame we cant be like /f/ and go yo-yo from baby to elite.>>38590126Not like we can blame them, Sita is a faggot and needs to be removed.
>>38590149Two of those were very unfortunate rebounds that left the net wide open, Derpy's efforts be damned. The last one was just a really nice shot that Lyra Plushie could've prevented if she'd moved her ass a bit faster, but so it goes.
>>38590149RNGsus decided to give /lit/ a string of nat 20's.Or /mlp/ a string of nat 1's. Hard to tell which.
But why are we so bad in bays but we did well in the world cup?
>>38590166Different patch and different tactics.
>>38590062>>38590090That's a double edged sword. Take her off defense, defense suffers hard.Way too many times in the last few years is it just her between the opposing offense and Derpy, and that's only if she's on the field, and if they come down the right.Kirin Beer was somewhat awake this game as well, but it's fascinating how often majority of the defense don't do much to stop the incoming offense regularly.
>>38590166Math. Starting on 2 wins would've got /mlp/ out of a 4 team group.Getting out of the babby is harder than staying elite simply because of the number of teams.
>>38590145It just got broken apart by two teams that played a 4-3-3. Width in defense to defuse the lolwingers and width in attack to run circles around a narrow central defense with swarm in the box on top. A thousand tests and we got countered and outmanaged in the most basic way possible. No idea what the plan was here, none of it made sense.
>>38590153>>38590154Well at least we'll have more F.A.G, that's always fun.
>>38590170>defense suffers hardWould you even be able to tell?
>>38590166Promotion and relegation didn't matter, so /mlp/ was allowed to do good.
>>38590172Too bad we couldn't start on two wins in the other three babbies we failed to promote out of that had 4 team groups.
>>38590014It's not about getting 9/10 wins when testing, best case you look for is 6/10. Test that tactic against use much as you can and have a back up or two in case you don't like what you see on game day.
The real question is when are we going to retire that purple giraffe hag already? Her fat ass just plays worse every cup.
>>38590183Can we have quadrupedal SMALL twilight? Like the TFH model but with alicorn twilgith.
>>38590184We should get eyepatch twi back. or S1 Twi
>>38590184Holy shit, this. She's played like shit since she became Biglight
>>38590093Like it was said before different patches yield different results. We create a few different teams and test to see which has the best results. We had two teams that we could have picked from in the end and this is the one we thought would do the best.
>>38590184>>38590189I've been saying that the entire time, but it keeps getting voted down. Fucking change that shit, it's a great model but she plays like absolute ass.
>>38590186I've been making that request on every roster poll ever since the giraffe was introduced, but it's been ignored every single time. It's not even about making a new model because /mlpol/ has a quadrupedal unicorn Twi.
>>38590196Preaching to the choir, man. I voted to return her to top form
>>38590188Fuck S9, also Faustfags were right about >wings
>>38590108>>38590136Best Pony being blue condition didn't help her perform today. The most unfortunate thing with conditions today was that /lit/ didn't have a single player below green condition. Which would have been helpful seeing as they only had one sub for every position that wasn't a CB. They were extremely lucky to get that and a red keeper.
>>38590198Are you me? Unicorn Twilight chads rise up
>>38590198I'd rather not have /mlpol/'s skinwalkers on the team. Just turn her back to how she was before she got giraffe'd
>>38590207Why would you want her to be bipedal?
>>38590211Nigger, almost the entire team is bipedal
>>38590082It's fine. I don't think anyone is expecting anything out of /mlp/ after all these years.
>>38590265i expect them to at some point stop choking critical matches. I mean they had to win or not lose 1 of the last 2 games and didnt show up to either.
>>38590265Every time I get hopeful, and then this happens.
>>38590277The solution is to not care as much and have fun.
>>38590265As i've said before this is /mlp/ we can't score when we need it, we can't save when we need it, and we certainly can't defend when we need it. Don't know why we get hyped about it, we're going to always loose.
>>38590286a lot easier to have fun with less losing. Team sure as hell isn't entertaining otherwise.
>>38590286Oh, I still enjoy the cup and watching other teams. I just wish we could go back to being the terror of the 4cc. Webm related was one of my favourite moments in recent years, even though we ended up losing that time it was kept extremely close. More of that would be stellar.
>>38590287Bro at worlds cup we had a nice performance, we certainly aren't fucking /a/;
>>38590286Yeah, just lose all your passion. Become numb, stop caring. Eventually stop watching, too. Crucial match today, 50 IPs, 200 posts. Discussion is already dead. Two and a half years of running this team into the ground.
>>38590303Ah, small Twilight. How I miss her
>>38590303Reminder that Twilight and >rape will always be the golden members of the team.
>>38590313>Twilight "Moonball" Sparkle>golden memberOnly if you go back in time five years.
>>38590306It's a weekday, stop being dramatic.
>>38590337And what about last weekend? The team played on a Saturday, and the thread still only got about 300 posts over three days.
>>38590337If the cup doesn't get enough viewers, it's gonna lose sponsors and have to shut down.
>>38590306Dude I back England in irl football, sometimes a loss is a loss, sit back crack a laugh, enjoy a beer, enjoy the jokes the commenters and other anons are dishing out. Don't get so hung up on it. Also why are you backing only one team? In irl football I have like 5 I am constantly rooting for. In divegrass, i'm backing about 4 boards at the moment, granted I visit all 4 so to each their own I suppose. Just enjoy the game man.
>>38590337Keep it up for another year and you will run us into the same ground /a/ is in.
>>38590337Drama's part of the fun though
>>38590350thanks but I don't want to ruin it. I'll just use normal rope.
I don't know what it is. I think the world has it out for /mlp/. It all looked so promising and then PES just laughs and turns on final boss mode.
>>38590303>I still enjoy the cup and watching other teamsAs a very long time cup watcher unfortunately I find myself enjoying it less and less. And it doesn't even have anything to do with how /mlp/ are doing, the managers, the commentators or anything other than PES itself. I wish the cup could go back to an older version where tactics actually seemed to have at least SOME discernible effect and the games were highly entertaining to watch. I don't think the matches have ever felt as boring and totally random as they do now. RNG and meme magic were always a factor but now it feels like you might as well just roll dice to decide the outcomes.
>>38590360I'm hung up on the fact that all our managers do is say exactly this kind of "stop being so passionate about it" talk while delivering shit results cup after cup, and this is where we are. Less people, everyone just passively enjoying the game, nothing to be excited about or celebrate because it's disappointment after disappointment. Two years ago we would've been filling a second thread at this point, from match reactions to butthurt at the result and choking a promotion after winning the first two matches. Now it's a graveyard here.
SACK THE MANAGER. SACK THE MANAGER. SACK THE MANAGER. SACK THE MANAGER. SACK THE MANAGER. SACK THE MANAGER. SACK THE MANAGER. SACK THE MANAGER. SACK THE MANAGER. SACK THE MANAGER. SACK THE MANAGER. SACK THE MANAGER.
>>38590404Step up and be the change if you're not happy about the state of the team.
>>38590404I know that feel anon. I just don't know what to do about it. I don't even think it's the managers' fault, it's just that every time everything seems to conspire against us.
>>38590397You got outplayed by two average teams that ran a 4-3-3, and you weren't able to adapt and produce a solution. That's what it is, don't cry about muh PES, it wasn't even close.
>>38590401That I can understand. Whatever momentum we used to have, we just can't seem to keep it going for as long these days.The cheeky 90+'ers are seeming less and less common.
>>38590404The passionate folks who sign up will give up on it soon as PES drains their sanity by failing to obey their beliefs.By all means join the team yourself and become the genius prodigy who changes /mlp/'s fate.
>>38590108People won't change shit, you know that when the next poll comes, everyone will vote on the same medals, the same players, the same music, same positions, same everything, and still be angry that this team didn't miraculously perform like 2016. This team is stuck in the past, and as such it will forever stay in the babbies, in the company of such amazing performers as /bant/, /trv/, /w/, /t/, /i/, and a bunch of /v/alkan boards
>>38590417It is managers fault.If we'd have Derpy in for game 3, we'd be through right now.Defence was shit in that game and safest hooves could have compensated.You don't bench your ace when it's your game to lose.
>>38590429She's not a medal, it makes no difference between her and Tracy
>>38590397Reminder this is a megababby. Two megababbies in a row for /mlp/ I might add. In a regular babby, (you)r team has a 50% chance of getting through even on coinflips, and you can afford 1 loss. In a megababby, even 9 point teams aren't safe - 3 wins aren't enough to guarantee passage. If you want to know why /mlp/ has remained stuck, today and last match should be a prime example - in a normal cup, /mlp/ would likely already be through on 6 points amd a positive GD.You want elite /mlp/ again? Go try sell the idea of regular babbies, with Fetuses for the lower ranked teams. It's not everything, but it helps the odds.
>>38590434Look at the fucking stats.PEZ has a margin for error in its engine and it clearly prefers safest hooves.This is The Burdened all over again.
>>38590425I'm sure some will give up pretty quickly, but you can't tell me that's the case for every tester that joins. How many have stuck around all these years and continue to assist the team despite the setbacks?
This is all snowpitys faultShe has been a token of bad luck ever since her spotlight literally shone down and blinded both the team and the fans.
>>38590444I see the stats, Derpy is still the current record holder for player with the biggest amount of own goals ever, in a cup with an unusual amount of own goals happening, she would run with it and get the wooden clog and you know it
>>38590429the thing is /mlp/ this cup was a super offensive team who ran offensive tactics to try and win the game early. That worked really well in the world cup last year, but this year offense just seems ass. Going super offensive and then not scoring quickly means you just waste a lot of stamina and then have to catch up late in the game. Even then that isn't so bad, but when you get cursed with shit conditions and your opponent gets blessed, then those issues compound and you're basically fucked.
>>38590429fuck off, Derpy played like shit today
>>38590444Let's not forget meme magic, and it looks like the 4's have spoken. Again. 4 stars one day, /mlp/.
>>38590434Unless Tracy and Derpy have the exact same stats, there is a difference, and condition isn't enough to make up for that. It'd be better to just have Derpy as the only keeper and always use her, and Tracy as a midfielder.
>>38590444yeah, PES really preferred her today lmao
>>38590462Literally denied the golden glove in world cup because of poor management's poor decision making and you know it.
>>38590472Anon...Tracy and Derpy are identical in every way but name and model.
>>38590438thank all the "free muh nigga /t/" fags who manage to shitpost the cup to death by bloating cups with merced or autopiloted teams that nobody gives a shit about so your team can get knocked out of a group when you still win half your games.
>>38590466She did fine, the rebounds fucking trolled her.
>>38590447>We've run X many tests of this but we always just happen to get PES'd honest.The mythical group of testers just makes it worse. Either testing doesn't matter or /mlp/ lacks whatever insight or instinct that others use to stumble upon usable tactics.
>>38590477This is anti-derpy propaganda.Safest Hooves stays in, every game. We will see results.>>38590472This anon gets it. Maybe he should be manager.
>>38590475>>38590466What game were you watching?Rebound does not count when the defence are halfway up field.
>>38590478>winning half your games should be enough to get through
>>38590477So why have two? Use the extra player for a spot that actually uses conditions. A purple keeper will be almost indistinguishable from a red, but a purple midfielder or defender will be absolute trash and fuck everything up.
>>38590484Testing is only half the battle. Live management is the other key component which is probably where the team is failing right now.
loved the Peetzer Princess redemption arc though
>>38590478I am personally in favor of a sort of cull - yes, there are clearly too many teams in the cup now, but on the flipside it seems like favoritism for big markets. Kill the Elite team with 3 fans so /a/ has a better shot of getting in Elites, why not. It's not a fair proposition to the small teams, the boards, or the fans.Alternatively just run a quick 16 team 4 group stage Fetus - no final day or knockouts, just quickly over the course of one 3-day weekend determine whoever gets to go in Pot 4 for the draw for the babbies. Problem solved.
>>38590500Make her a gold medal.
>>38590478Don't care, free my nigga /po/
>>38590500She never needed a redemption arc.It was all The Burden's fault anyway, everyone is just blind to the truth.Hi Anon missed 1 goal, The Burdened didn't save any.
>>38590421/sci/ has run a 3-4-3 since they were down 2-0 to /lit/ at 61'. It was a challenge to test against.
>>38590490In an Elite, that's called advancing on 4 points. One win, one draw, one loss. Positive GD that puts you over the other fella in a 9-4-4-0 group.Compared to a megababby, where 6 points is death, as this instance shows. The odds don't favor you in a megababby, even on coinflips.
This is like some elaborate ballet of bullshit! Good! Good Sita should be sacked! I'm extremely disappointed! Everyone here should be disappointed! /mlp/ should be disappointed in itself! How could you let something like this happen? YOU GOT BEAT BY /lit/! There's nothing you can say. There is absolutely nothing you can have in response to this match other than extreme sadness and disappointment. Anyone who came here to see /mlp/ should be leaving with their heads hanging and curses under their breath for everything that happened.
>>38590503you want /mlp/ to be an eternal fetus team?
>>38590532Did you expect anything else from a team who refuses to live past 2016 and a board who refuses to live past 2012?
>>38590512She needed a redemption arc. It's always been a >rape and best pony story, with either stepping up if the other wasn't performing and twilight occasionally stepping up as well.Sadly now it's Twilight that needs a redemption arc.>>38590527that should be obvious just from the fact that from a megababby group only 40% of teams advance and from a regular group 50%.The odds are stacked against you in a megababby group, which is why megababby cups suck ass. Unfortunately the cup has gotten so bloated with dead boards and merc teams that a megababby seems like the only solution until someone figures out a better one.
>>38590565Revive and create even more teams so they'll be forced to remake fetus as an actual league, so /mlp/ won't be a permababby anymore, it will be a permafetus
>>38590565also megababbys are inherently unfair to pot 3 teams, forcing them to play two games in the first weekend and not giving them a weekend off until they've played every game. Being a pot 3 team is a curse in a megababby.
>>38590538I said 16 team fetus didn't I?If there had been a quick Fetus, /mlp/ would have not even needed to play in the fetus on account of being a Pot 3 babby team. The megababby Pot 4 and 5 would go into the fetus to determine which top 8 get to play in a babby Pot 4. Then there's the>you can advance on a win, a draw, and a lossmeme we've been going on about.
>>38590589Do you really think the team won't sink lower if there's any space.
So outage aside, how exactly did Milky get so far forward at the end?Like, game logic-wise, why would a right defender get so far forward and centered to be in goal scoring position?Legitimately got hype for her to potentially score a goal.
What should be done is get rid of the Babby and Elite cups and just have two Mega Cups a year instead. More exciting that way.
>>38590621Team was on +2, a CB typically goes forward when that happens.
>>38590605Personally? I see /mlp/ making strong starts but dying off by game 3. 6 points. Usually enough to advance, whether out of fetus or out of babbies, but not out of a megababby. If you're worried about being permafetus, didn't the fetus include a by for aborted teams who had been fetus for 2 or so straight fetuses?
Will Friendship Games 9 be happening this summer?
are we winning?
>>38590684Probably. Decision will be made later and almost certainly gets announced during the Summer cup.
>>38590702Yes. >We won a ticket to Autumn.
>>38590702friendship always wins anonno matter what happens we'll always have mares
>>38590702no this is not what winning looks like
>>38590684If you want to know earlier than Summer Cup keep an eye on the wiki/event calendar. We need to schedule ahead of time since there are so many invitationals nowadays.
Weren't we supposed to have a new ball this cup?
>>38590412titan did that but he couldnt remove shita
>>38590736New kit, Izzy kit, used against /pol/
>>38590733Sounds good, thanks. Hopefully it won't be too difficult to schedule.
>>38590751But what about the Bomber Dash ball?https://desuarchive.org/mlp/thread/38270155/#38276502
if you could make a pony team for the horsecup, what would it be?
>>38590767We'll get it in there for Autumn. Just gotta remind Note.
>>38590733So it won't be before Summer cup?
>>38590768I have two ideas, one probably won't work and it would be a draw thread team, with proeminent OCs and stuff from there. The other one is more in line with the current teams, and it is a /cmc/ team
Demote Best Pony. Promote HI ANON to gold and captain. It's peetzer time.
>>38590768I haven't been able to think of anything that could both fill a roster and be worth running.
>>38590774Get it in the F.A.G as well.
>>38590768Bring back /bug/. Make them always run things like swarm the box and be hyper aggressive. Occasionally give them meme aesthetics where they are "disguised" as another team.>>38590785>/cmc/
>>38590792It's already in the FAG
>>38590781probably not. It doesn't make sense to do it before summer because you want to use it to prepare for the next cup with the most recent rules/patch/etc. Also you can use the FAG to have roster polls and stuff, and doing that before summer means there would be a ton of time between the polls and the cup itself.Maybe someone will organize friendlies before summer or something.
>>38590774I swear if /pol/ somehow miraculously save us sunday sita needs to instantly demote and apologize publicly.
>>38590785>filly teamFund it.
>>38590797No it wasn't the poll was made during the tag team.
>>38590795/bug/ could be brought back. The issue with /bug/ is that there are just not a ton of named oldschool changelings, but I've been reading a ton of changeling >fanfics and I guess you could grab names from there. Main issue is that Chrysalis already is a gold medal on Legion of Doom, but she's in disguise there so I guess it's not a massive issue. No promises, though. Just brainstorming.read Changeling Space Program. I recently read it and loved every chapter
>>38590809Ah, I'm probably thinking of the player
>>38590795>>38590816/bug/ sucks. just make team /creatura/ and put the nulings on that.
>>38590816>but Chrysalis is on /lod/And and how many Dashs are in the FAGs?
>>38590816What team would /bug/ replace?
>>38590804Sita needs to instantly demote anyway. You will continue constantly losing otherwise. He's one big curse that's been denying /mlp/ their well deserved third star for years now.
Damn /mlp/ are you a lolicon?Why do you enjoy beings stuck at the babby so much lmaooooo
>Winning by 5 or 7 goalswhen was the last time this has ever happened in PES?
>>38590879Because we're just /a/ with an extra star
>>38590922the difference is that eventhough >we consistently fall just short of advancing, /a/ can't even win games
hey guys just woke up did we win are we though?
>>38591085were promoted to autumn
>>38591085We did not win, but we're not out yet/mlp/ is through on 2 conditions being met1. /vr/ beats /lit/ on Sunday2a. /pol/ beats /sci/ by 5 on Sunday2b. /sci/ beats /pol/ by 7 on Sunday
>>38591071You're right, I think it would be better compared to /jp/
HOW CAN MULP STILL WIN IT
>>38591113We're pretty much dead again.
>>38591113The odds are so slim that it's pretty much irrelevant.
Anything on tonight?
>vs /sci/ 1-3>vs /lit/ 1-3 againI'm sure Twilight has sold us in plain sight
>>38590184THISremove giraffelight and go back to unicorn twilight>>38591344considering how bad twilight has been playing she sould us out a long time ago
>>38590768/filly/This is what would be great - mini mares with their cutepitys
>>38590768Wait, when did this happen? Was there a memecup I missed?
>return from job to finally see what happenedWhy I even expect something different for our team at all? At this point I just need to stop caring about this at all and accept that we will never get the third star or being a real threat for anyone again.I will start to believe that /mlp/ it's just a free victory for the opponent, just another /a/
>>38591629How did you just return from work being an ESL? I thought you fags got off work hours ago.
>>38591635>implying burgers can speak english
>>38588957weird what is this ????????? no one explains you fucking guys talk so much without your post being anything bla bla bla post more ponys anon pls ty
>>38592110I've lost the original screenshot of this, anyone got it handy?
>>38590349>sponsorsis this a shitpost or is the cup actually reliant on sponsorship somehow? I thought it was all volunteers doing it for fun.
>>38592757Oh, shit, people still don't know about this?>>/vg/384064829Short version, it's a digital soccer/football tournament with a team representing each board smashing their heads against a janky AI for glory and lulz. You've unfortunately caught the team at a low point, since /mlp/ has been all but eliminated, but if the concept catches your interest, the next round of games is starting in about 7 hours over herehttps://isthisliv.com/4cc/stream.htmlAnd you can find the schedule herehttps://implyingrigged.info/wiki/2022_4chan_Spring_Babby_Cup
>>38592862>he doesn’t know about Boris’s yacht
>>38590565She needed an ascension arc, not a rebound.>>38590184We need "All my things are horse things" Twiggles
>amazing start to the tourney>finally start to have hope that maybe we'll finally escape babbies>then 2 losses in a rowI have no words left for this team, goodbye
>>38592862It's a huge money making scheme.
So if I'm understanding this right, we need /lit/ to not win and /pol/ to score at least +4GD against /sci/, right?
>>38593201Yeah./lit/ not winning could happen.But /pol/ getting at least 4 is really hard
>>38592940Fairweathers aren't fans
>>38593207i was actually thinking the opposite, i just dont see /vr/ winning.
>>38593201/pol/ need to win by at least 5, or /sci/ by at least 7.
Okay. I am finally ready to cope now.It was all because we played on Friday the 13th. It cursed us and everything that could go wrong that day in group A, did. Derpy performed well, all things considered. /lit/'s goalkeeper was good, and blocked a few key shots on target. Best Pony played like shit, the blue condition really got to her. These are truly dark times if we have to rely on HI ANON of all ponies to carry the team like she did against /pol/ - and she failed to come through.It feels like the magic is gone now that FiM is well and truly dead. I'll admit when /mlp/ was down two goals at 70', I stopped believing. The players were completely exhausted, more so than /lit/'s, and the way the match was going, with no goals in the first half, it was over. Our team is shit. Especially Giraffelight.Yeah I know, >game of skill btw, but I need someone to blame for all this. And no, not Sita. When he said his line, years ago, he was being honest. I, too, despise /pol/ for being a hive of contrarians, but a distinction needs to be made between 4cc and the board. As a team, they bring amazing bantz, and that has to be respected.At least this loss didn't hurt as much as the one against /sci/. It always stings to take the lead, then lose it and be beat. And at least it wasn't as savage as when ponies got shot to death 1-5 by /k/, last babby.
Fucking two and a half years stuck in the babbies. I couldn't have picked a worse time, started watching the cup in Winter 2018 and immediately witnessing /mlp/'s most exciting run for years to come, with the most hype finale possible, followed by the most disappointing coin flip that made Cadance who she is today, and forever disgraced the Burdened. Instead, I had to watch /u/'s rise to glory over the last four years. It hurts bros.
Once the commentator said no team has been eliminated from a megababby after winning the first two games, I had a feeling this would happen, /mlp/ is pretty good at being the first to do things. Doesn't even matter if the stat isn't actually correct.Also I didn't notice until now because I forgot to check the pre-cup formation posts in /4ccg/ and didn't notice on matchdays, but>actually playing wing forwardsNo wonder Twilight played even worse than usual. I know every PES and patch are different and admittedly Cadance somehow did pretty well so maybe it's viable-ish this patch, but this is one of those memes that never consistently work like langball. Might as well play >gold defender at that point, only takes 9 years to get back to Elites and I don't think he has even been an actual defender for a few years now.>>38591344kek this has to be the actual reason, she played pretty fine as setup mare in the first two matches and assisted as usual (which is the actual reason she's been scoring less, she's used more to setup nowadays).
So... who are you rooting for today?For me it's /k/, /ck/, /s4s/, and my nigga /t/. The rest is whatever.
>>38592862It's a huge money making scheme, did you know that Sou by himself is accountable for at least 15% of the weed consumption in Mexico?
>>38593795/xs/, my nigga /t/, /s4s/, maybe I'll join the /p/ army and /f/
>>38593795/p/, /ck/, I like both /vst/ and /gd/ but want both to advance so I want /vst/ to win here/i/ is nice, too/k/, /xs/, and /fa/ more for meme reasons
So, is this esfores year?
Perhaps /mlp/ should capitalize on the game deciding Hi Anon isn't shit anymore and produce some Cadance kits.Or Pizza kits./mlp/'s meme magic seems heavily dependent on kits after all.
>>38594113The team definitely needs something new injected into it. Its getting stale, but of course thats heresy and people froth at the mouths over that idea.
>>38594113bring back the /s4s/ kitwe need that perfect group magic
>>38594113Nah, most people here think that new things are heresy regardless on what it is so you'll enjoy the same exact thing in autumn and be angry that it didn't automatically lead to victory this time
>>38594141I want some new shit for sure, but I miss Jackie Chan tulpa too
>>38594147I miss that nigga that you wouldn't believe, but at the same time I'm on the belief that the team should reflect the board in the current state, even if that anger one or two autists who don'r really understand how meme magic works
>>38594113muh legacy and tradition though
New player proposals, go.
>>38594161>I'm on the belief that the team should reflect the board in the current stateDo you really, REALLY want that now though? Because if we're going that route, all the players should just be old nags limping around. Actually, that sounds funny, do it.
>>38594173Would be too low to make one based on that schizo who promised to kill himself in febuary?
>>38594184He refuses to follow through. He's useless.
>>38594191Yes, but at the same point, look at all the shit that he did, like having a mental breakdown at work because of G5, having a doctor send him into an empty building, apparently buying shitloads of G4 merch on the belief that this will make G5 fail. It's too good to not capitalize into
>>38594191This made me think, Suicide Trixie should be her hanging from a scarf
>>38594180If you want it to reflect the current board, just make 23 random ponies and name them all "Mare"
>>38594218As if i needed even more of a reason to be pissed at the team. God that meme is so lame.
>>38594173Put Zippa on the team.
>>38594173I guess Italian sparky could work but Cadence already exists as the italian representation for the team. Perhaps a Chad Hitch player
>>38594244She needs to replace that old, washed up princess.
As bad as /mlp/ has been for a while, for now >/a/ manages to remain worse. It's honestly sad, at least we have some wins and hyp games to celebrate (although this was a tight game).>>38594184In my opinion that falls under the spirit of "no name- or tripfaggotry". Shouldn't give attention to people like that in the Cup setting.>>38594218Would make a good friendlies team.Captcha:SAW4W
CAM ON /ck/!
>>38594270Yeah that makes sense, in this case, a general G% schizophrenia player could work? About >>>>>>>/a/, I don't know what's the issue, maybe the manager, maybe PES just hate them, when was the last time they won anyway?
>>38594380tfw you accidentally hatch the derpys
/b/ vs. /c/ time, very cute and funny game
were out aren't we?
>>38594487Probably easier to just go with "yes" than go into the schitzo math that will never come true.
>>38594487>>38594499What's hard to understand./sci/ or /pol/ just need to blow the other right the fuck out, and /vr/ need to embrace that meme that always happens where a dead team for some reason wakes right the fuck up hard for their last game that doesn't matter for them anymore, just to screw whoever they're against that still has a chance, in this case /lit/.I feel like the /vr/ thing at least is a guarantee because meme magic is real.
>>38594487You need the spoon candidate /vr/ to actually win and either /pol/ or /sci/ to fucking brazil eachother, so pretty much yes
>>38594519/sci/ braziling /pol/ isn't even enough, sci would need to win 7-0 or 8-1 etc
>>38594509Odds are about 1.54%
>>38594538Sweet. Not 0%. We got this.
This entire logo must be enlarged!
Time to post A E S T H E T I C pones
>>38594573is this A E S T H E T I C enough for you
>>38594580No, that's barely A E S T H E T I C
>keeper conditions don't matter
Now that was a PESing
Kane wins. No manager.2 shots, 2 on target, 2 goals.All star teams get fucked. Remove managers.
>2(2) with only AIWhy do managers even exist
>>38594652Kane IS the manager
Hakuho was a beast, can't believe it's only /xs/'s backup keeper
>>38594656To get piss drunk
>>38590184If we demoted over performance, I could see it. But punishing with an eyepatch is more appropriate
>>38594656To take credit when things go well and rig polls so their favorite players always stay on.
Well, I won't be able to watch today. It's probably for the best. We only need for stars to align to go through. Our best bet is hoping Doompaul decides it's happening again, and scores five goals on /sci/. I'll be praying to Celestia for that.
>>38594958Demote her from Beeg horse Twilight to small hors
>>38594652Auto pilot AI is all you need. CABAL is in control. The TECHNOLOGY OF PEACE
>>38595251I was sure people would have voted for that last time, but they voted to keep her big and also added Chad Spike. The team is absolutely fucked.
>>38595251100 rigbux on management not even giving that as an option on the next roster poll.
>>38595258That because the options were quadrupedal model vs. anthro, not quadrupedal giraffe vs. quadrupedal unicorn.
>>38595258I guess the bulk of the people are really S9 lovers after all>>38595263See, I bet this guy even cried of happiness
>>38595263Can't do small quadruped ponies. It's the reason /mlpol/'s models look like hellspawn.
>>38595314Who gives a shit. Let the board vote on it. Or is management officially saying fuck fun and vetoing what the board wants in favor of their own preferences.
>>38595330So you make the model, fag.
>>38595337Guess I touched a nerve. Remember when this team was about having fun? Guess that not allowed now either.
>>38595350Get to work on that model.
>>38595314I see, still prefer just a head than the whole giraffe thing
>>38595356The model already exists, anon. Or at least I'm 99% certain it already existed at some point in /mlp/'s past, around, what, 2019ish? It was around when /mlpol/ transferred to being quadrupeds around /pol/eague 4. There's your model.Alternatively, give me a bit while I take a quick gander about Twi AI's texture.
>>38595824It's gonna have to be the latter. Neither /mlp/ or /mlpol/ has managed to make pony-sized quadruped models work. If you can crack the code, it would be much appreciated.
>>38595858I meant the monstrosities with the fucked up necks. I am 99% certain such a Twilight existed at one point. As far as the fucked up necks, er...I don't think I'll have solutions, but I will try.
https://implying.fun/video/spring22/2022-05-13/?t=1:17:25.0This whole moment is like Crotchtits just said she'll fucking do it herself and swapped positions with Best Pony for being fucking useless all game.I think its hilarious. Give that mare a fondle.
>>38596371what the FUCK, thats really rare. I think she wants to tell us and the managers something....
>>38596744It's up to the board to give her enough votes to make here a striker. They won't.
>>38596744That's a thing that happens when you activate +2One of the defenders will play as an extra striker to provide extra offense. Sometimes it's a good idea, most of the time it isn't.
are we dead yet?
>>38595251fucking this. fuck the votes and revert her back to a biped and possibly wingless too. I dont think Ive seen a game in the past three years where she's been a standout player, maybe one.best pony should move back to mainly offense too, and have twilight put in her place.
>>38596801I'd rather keep her on defense, she's incredibly good at it most of the time and has saved our asses more times than I count.
>>38596371can we uncensor milky yet? I wanna see those funbags
>>38597092please anon, the cup is struggling to find advertisers as is

I am unfortunately not going to be able to watch today's proceedings, but never stop believing /mlp/Pray for the following:>/vr/ beats /lit/>/pol/ beats /sci/ by 5 OR /sci/ beats /pol/ by 7Post waifus, stars, and keep cheering on til the end. It isn't over till it's overI believe.
POST PETTING HORSE NOW
Now is up to /pol/
The crusaders are here to save us, may our hopes fly high with them.
1 / 5ITS HAPPENING
>>38597707Way to jinx it
PES was just taunting us with that /vr/ win.
>>38597707Read the room fucker, everyone is quiet and keeping their hopes to themselves because PES is self aware and hears you!
It's never going to happen guys, just give up and enjoy the games. /mlp/ is forever babby due to bad management.
>>38597723Fuck PES. It's a shitty fucking game
/vr/ winning was already more than we could have hoped for given their performance, a blowout was asking too much.I'm just gonna root for /pol/ to succeed where we failed.
>>38597739>aryanne>kyrie>luftkriegwho's the fourth?
>>38597756she's got a nice manecut
>spend the entire match talking about /mlp/
welp time to vote for /an/ dog wives ahoy!
>>38597784That was the only stakes this game had since /pol/ and /sci/ were otherwise already through
Sorry I couldn't get the great escape, I was to busy shitting myself praying /vr/ to win, don't worry frens /pol/ will burn down summer for you.
>>38597739Wanna know the sad part? Losing to /sci/ and /lit/ by 1 goal each would've meant a 2 GD swing would've been enough. But instead they were lousy defensively
So if we had won we would have gone through? Maybe we should try that next time.
>>38597804The entirety of the management team, me included, hate elite cups and want nothing to do with 'em.
>>38597800Rooting for you lads. /mlpol/ Forever.>>38597801In all fairness, those two rebound goals in our last game were some absolute nonsense. We used to have a reliable offense to offset our defensive weakness, but they've been slumping on that and we paid the price this time. Again.
>>38597800I will be rooting all the way.
>>38597804Not even win. Had /mlp/ even had just 1 draw against either team, we'd be through
>>38597800No biggie, at least /pol/ looks pretty strong going forward. Been some good matches so far.
>>38597729I'd enjoy the games more if matches on this PES weren't so goddamn boring all the time. If it's not a midfield slurpfest, it's some match where you can watch 15 minutes and pinpoint the exact moment where PES picked which team it wants to lose.
>>38597837Yeah, if there's one thing that depresses me more than /mlp/ being out, it's that this dull slurpfest of a PES is the version the cup is stuck with for the foreseeable future.
>>38597800Hope you lads can join us in the two star club
>>38597960>>38597829>>38597816>>38597815Thanks lads, nice to see some of you anons can separate the board from the team Also Im waiting for the /mlp/ management to say the line
Good. /o/ are boring and Eurobeat is overrated. Want /fit/ to go on.
mlp? Fucking Dead, and filled with the usual drama.o? Fucking Dead, and filled with EVfags, pointless bickering, and /n/ tourists.k? alive, but overrun with shills and tourists.it comes down to the last good board to save the cup, and the very soul of 4chan. /vm/. Think about it. Who said his favorite pony was Pinkie Pie? Lord Gaben. Who rode in a car one time to deliver Steam Decks? Lord Gaben. Who put the USP Match in Half Life 2, and the MP5 in Half Life 1? Lord Gaben. Face it /mlp/, your only hope in this cup, on this website, and in this world, is /vm/. You play TF2, Second Life, Borderlands... all multiplayer games. Sit down and stay awhile my friend, you can even be player 1 if you want. Save the World, /vm/.
