The next event of Marble League 2020, the halfpipe, debuts live on June 28th at 3pm EDT / 20:00 BST, while event 3, newton's cradle, livestreams on July 3rd. Come meme the biggest marble event of the year live>What is Marble League?The Marble League is a tournament that features the most decorated and dedicated marble sports athletes. Every year, teams of five marbles compete in Qualifiers and the top 12 teams, along with 4 automatically qualified teams, advance to the main tournament. After an exquisite opening ceremony, the 16 teams perform in a series of events that are inspired by real-world Olympic events, earning medals and scoring points towards an overall total. The team with the most points at the end of the tournament is the team that wins the Marble League, standing at the top of the podium during the closing ceremony and having the honor of extinguishing the torch at the end of each year.>Marble League 2020 Videoshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OoELkuqx8Ughttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPFVLLxhEI4>Channel Linkhttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYJdpnjuSWVOLgGT9fIzL0g/videos>Official Websitehttps://www.marble-sports.com>Fandom Wikihttps://jellesmarbleruns.fandom.com/wiki/Marble_League_Wiki

>>100506289Why do marbles do this to themselvesThat free qualifying spot isn't worth it
New chant I created today :Raspberry racersWe will winRaspberry racersWe will winWin win winYeah
>>100506041They've looked pretty strong so far
>>100499607The funnels belong to the racers
>>100509507I still can't get over the fact that Mary decided to actually speed her way through something for once in the fucking funnels
does anyone have the gifs from last thread? i didn't get a chance to save them
>>100495796these threads aren't nearly as samefagged as i would expect them to be. that's a lot more of a problem with non-major divegrass league generals or meme sports like /nrl/ or /hoc/
>>100509681Contrary to popular belief the slowest marbles exit the funnels first. The faster you go the more you stay on the funnel edge.

>>100512124Yes, but too fast and you'll bump a marble ahead of you and transfer speed to them.Truly a thinking man's event.
>>100508509That was beautiful, anon
Reminder that the Speeders are reddit and O'Rangers are not
This looks like a dumb event
YOU MAGNIFICENTLY MINTY BASTARDS

>Oceanicslife is suffering
Oh no Speedchads we got too cocky
>savage sneeders in last placeOH NO NO NO
>>100514557O'Riggers fans are the Patriots/Yankees/Warriors fans of JMR
Yay Green Ducks, we're perpetual runners-up lol
>>100514575What about the savage speeder fans?
WTF you told me the Savage Seethers were good?
>>100511161anon how did you know I use Linux. You are very clearly a witch and I'm reporting all your posts
>>100514575they're the red sox
I miss the livetalk during Marbula One that would reach like 100 posts during the actual races

>O'faggots aren't even first and think they are going to win the league
Now will we recover Savage Chads?!
Are the Sneeders in rebuild mode after their Marbula 1 win!?
>>100517912i think they got a little complacent. hopefully that can pull it together and refocus for the rest of the league
LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO @ SAVAGE SNEEDERS IN LASTOH NONONONONONONOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Now that the dust has settled, what do >we think of Halfpipe?
>>100519218not a huge fan but then I prefer my events to be either battles between multiple teams (at least 4 but preferably 8) or one team at a timeI don't really care much for any event that's just two teams
>>100519283Agreed, but 1v1 for events like this I'd prefer a single elimination bracket though
>>100519218Never liked it. The winner is too clear early in the game. But we haven't seen it in 2 years, so whatever.
>>100498372LETS FUCKING GO
Hazers have gotta pick up their game if they want to be successful this year. They are just half-assing it at the moment.
Getting paired against the Minty Maniacs really made things tough for us in the halfpipe. Next is funnels though. Our event.
The Minty Maniacs have competed in funnel racing 4 times, and have earned three silver medals. I'm thinking they podium for three events in a row.
>>100520402Podiums in team events are one thing, but the individual events are a whole other kind of discipline.
>>100520402Hopefully. Surprise teams doing well is always nice.
>He hates funnels
>>100526247I just hope they've made them safer after that Jungle Jumpers injury in the warmups
>>100526276Should add safety nets.
>>100526247The funnels are a big brain event, thats why tactical teams like the racers do well and >muh speed teams fuck up
Momo hasn't shit the bed in the first 2 events. Could it finally be our year?
We all know the GOAT team is indisputably the Savage Speeders, but who is the GOAT individual?
>>100529124>We all know the GOAT team is indisputably the Savage Speeders>Is in last place
>Mellow YellowWhat the fuck happened? This was meant to be our year.
>>100529124Speedy is the most successful ML marble (Rapidly being second) and he won the M1 as well. Speedy is the 16mm GOAT just like RN3 is the 24mm GOAT.
>>100529234It's in the name.
>>100529177name one (1) GOAT that hasn't had an off-year
>>100529251>RN3*honestly someone needs to get the sneeders checked for PEDs too while we're at it
>>100520269it's still early la, have faith
For me, its the Haze Amaze
>my favorite football club is so shit I almost had a mental breakdown, they genuinely make me a worse human being and will be responsible if I die before reaching old age>"well, at least the Speeders can win, they will cheer me up">Even the fucking Speeders are last as of nowLet's just say I hope for the next weeks to be better
>seething sneeders still seething
I can't believe there are so many Speeders fans. /sp/ really is just a bunch of plastics and bandwagoners
The halfpipe would be so much better if after release the marbles reached the other end softly instead of just bonking into a wall. It'd make it more impressive, more mysterious, more packed up (meaning increased technical skill in bumping off other marbles) and less accident-prone (I'm surprised mo didn't shatter off that wall already)
>>100531535If there's a Kobalts fan that's the real dedication right there
>>100529177The Montreal Canadiens haven't won the cup in 27 years, they're still the greatest hockey team ever
>The city of Speeders
>>100531535I knew Speed is key before it was cool. But I admit I was delighted to find out they are the most dominant team.
>Red Number 3 has also garnered controversy for his lightweight, plastic physique, for which critics accuse him of having an unfair genetic advantage.#SayNoToRacism
Bumblebees really dropped the ball on balancing, which is usually their prime event. Hopefully we can make it up in the funnel.
o'rangerswinlol is not a sport
>>100530504Nah, he's world class, but not the best.
>>100531535I'm bandwagoning them because the Limers fucked it up again.It's not going so well.
Team Momo is staying competitiveI think they may podium this year
>>100530504he gets my vote, too >>100529124
Sexiest marbles in the league?For me it's the Hazers.
Are there actual differences in the compositions of the different types of marbles? Like are some teams heavier than others, bigger than others, smoother than others, etc?Or are they all one race, the marble race?
>>100526276I can't believe they showed that live, or that they let the event continue. Disgusting behavior from JMR.
>>100544091apparently they're all the same weight, and same size (16mm)some are different materials though
>>100544099Also their mechanical flaws is the only reason Jungle Jumpers did not qualify
O'RANGERS ARE NOT REDDIT
>>100544091We judge and support them based on their external appearance, just like real life
>>100545015They are reddit
>>100544091Allah forgive me but to quote the FAQ on Reddit>Q - What are the marbles made of?A - Most are glass, by a wide margin, And many come from the same factory in Mexico by Vacor / Mega Marbles. Some are made of agate, optic fiber, resin, and other materials. They have all been tested to weigh the same amount, based on their category.
>>100546663>the marbles are Mexicanthis changes my entire view of them now
Why don't the ball bearings have their own event?Ball League 2020 make it happen.
>>100544874>>100544099>>100526276>jungle jumpers chimping outnotice how every other marble navigated the funnels safely? it's almost like it wasn't actual an equipment failure and the JMR committee is helping them save face
>O-O'R-reddit!Biggest cope I've ever seen. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
>>100544091Its funny how some marbles seem to be consistently good or bad compared even to others on their team despite being supposedly identical. >Mary is the textbook example, but rezzy is a prize fuckup too
>>100552668How would we tell them apart?
>>100561937tiny runners' bibs
Alliteration is for fags, which must be why john oliver sponsored this
>tfw no Rojo Rollers
>>100559750i think it's more wossname, that thing where you believe you are seeing patterns and assigning meaning to something that's actually entirely random chance. on one hand it means you can invent this fun fictional world where the athletes just happen to be marbles and it's fun to play along and pretend their teams actually make sense and matter, but it also describes the crazy people who believe God is appearing in their TV static or something.
>>100557264They aren't even in 1st lol calm down
>>100546663they make some nice marbles>Blueberry FreezeJELLE PLEASE I KNOW YOU'RE READING THIS
>>100514019Anyone else notice that at 1:04 something bounces off the track, then off its left edge and back towards the right? How has JMR not acknowledged this?
>>100563764Come on now
>>100572308It looks like a fly
>>100572560Looked like it bounced to me
>>100569899Those are some beautiful marbs
I think that there are basically two types of autists: Those that, when something goes wrong, they have to redo it. And those that, when something goes wrong, they come up with some sort of headcanon justifying what happened. I think Jelle is the latter.
Hey /marble/, /sp/ virtual divegrass team manager hereI wanted to let you guys know that if you wanted to hold a poll as to who you want the marble rep on the team to be and what design, now would be a good time. Summer cup 2020 starts on the 17th and the aesthetics deadline for it is in a week, so I'll need to know by Thursday at the latest.If you want to refer to designs that were used for the /marble/ team from /sp/erb owl 2020, you can go here to see old VODs: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUcjdJ4mg86jykl8oIeb_nw
>>100578294Can't wait CANNOT WAITRaspberry Racers are going to remind everyone there are levels to funnelracing
>>100574371I've done polls before here so I can get this going tomorrowToday we have a full event with the Funnel Spin video coming out so we'll be dedicated to that
>>100579344inb4 16th place
>>1005793441. Raspergers2. Mintys3. SS 1488I think the seethers are going to bounce back today
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CFNNldyI-0>45 minutesIs anyone able to make out the marbles in the thumbnail? I think I see Mintys, Mellow Yellow, Momo, Galactic, Oceanics, Speeders, Bees, and the Ducks
10 minutes until the most important event of Marble League 2020
>inb4 massive Raz choke
>>100582031Mellow Yellow are this year's designated chokers
REZZY YOU SHITwhy did we start him over razzy the GOAT?
>galactic only 2 pointsfucking embarrasing
Are Minty Maniacs secretly elite?
Yo did they DOUBLE TEAM my man Clutter?
Minty Maniacs are becoming too powerful.
But what the fuck minty maniacs, from out of the league to getting 3 straight medals? Are they doping or something? Do they have the Red 3 as their coach?
Such a shame for Ducky. Gave it all in the first heat, and juuuuust missed out on a podium finish.
>>100582186What the hell is going on in the Mellow Yellow dormitories, they haven't showed up to a single event.
>>100582186>the sunken continent of Oceanics
>>100582186>>100582204>SS getting dabbed on by o'reddit againminty maniacs were an elite hubelino team, nice to see them finally adjust to ML
>>100582217Oceanics have always been just average at their best, they only show up at the qualifiers.
Minty Maniacs my god
>>100582186Momo bros we're slipping again
Minty Drizzel winning stylishly with the fan favourite first-in last-out strategy. I was a bit worried the shallow green funnels would prevent this but Drizzel proved it can be done.
>>100582429That was beautifulFeels like time and time again the second one into the funnel is in the worst position
>>100582186>that 4 place drop for Team Momojust fucking nuke the team, I'm sick of them letting me down after giving me hope
>>100582186>tfw momo fan
The tide has begun to rise. The Speeders will reign supreme. FUCK the O'RangersFUCK Reddit
>>100582429>that fucking end with the O'reddit juke on the speeders trying to push them in
>>100582141Was saying the other day that rezzy is a prize fuckup, cringed as soon as I saw his name in the lineupAlso not keen on the wide funnels
>>100582429Here you can see the exact opposite strategy to the raspberry racers: instead of strategically jostling and juking marbles into the hole, they played defensively and practically rodeoed the whole group behind them until they were all piled in the center with no momentum left. Very impressive play, well deserved
For me it's Crazy Cats Eyes
Cats had a good run this event. Glad the raz's didnt even make it to the main event. Proving they DO NOT run the funnels. I got the sneeders as the dark horse for 2020 tho
>>100583632The big funnels have grown on me. It was pretty cool seeing all the marbles end up together in one funnel towards the end
Thanks Whizzy for finally delivering...What the fuck is going on with the Minty Maniacs by the way? This is getting out of hand!Also, King Stardust is pretty based ngl.
>>100584579based on current form, King Stardust could probably outperform Team Galactic by himself this Marble League
>>100584704I'm glad >we finally left last place. Team Galactic are pretty shit so far, but I wouldn't call them out yet. In fact, they are a bit better than I expected them to be so far, but maybe the >host curse will strike even harder later on.
>>100583261>>100582429>jukes you and pushed you into 3rd OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOÒOOOOOOOOOOOÒOOOOO
>>100585605that little push cost the sneeders 4 places, pretty based for a reddit team desu
When are the Jungle Jumpers going to get cancelled by ESPN
>>100584136The newest logo is brilliant.
Mellow Yellows more like Dude Weed Lmaos
>Rezzy on starting grid
>>100582186Green Ducks Chads WW@
>With today's win, the O'rangers' historic ML points total rises to 498, temporarily surpassing the Savage Speeders' historic points total of 496 (including today's bronze) to become the ML team with the most points.>With today's performance, Kinnowin becomes the first marble to surpass 100 points achieved by an individual marble, and now leads the standings for the individual marble with the best performance (pointswise).OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Marbula E is back in August
>>100595703Savage seethers already coping lmao
>>100582903Team Primary isn't here, so Momo looks bad
>>100593225>muh pointswho cares? it's medals that matter
>>100591349here, glad they turned things around a bit. Need some medals though. It's gonna tough to get onto the end podium already.
/marble/ voting soon
>>100586933inb4 the redskins rebrand as the Jungle Jumpers
Will any team ever retire again
How do we save Mellow Yellow?
>>100594170Marbula E is comfy
Fubeca's is doing some entertaining shit right now. The escalator is officially obsolete:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Djz8pMrQA-k
>>100619009we know. The farmer's league accelerator is actually really cool. Too bad he has terrible announcing and the tracks aren't that great. Furthermore, not having teams really makes it difficult to care
>>100619009The only winning move
>>100619307It leads to a very different kind of race though. Rough and aggressive. Insurance for the racers must be pricey.
>>100619009>that hand at 7:05lmao it's rigged
>>100619437>the difference in points between first and last is smaller than the difference between last and DNF
>still a year until the next Sand Rally
>>100621107there's a bit of a weird cut in the video at that spot too
>>100621107A blunder like that just highlights the lack of dedication these money/attention grabbers have compared to based Jelle.
>picked a team to bandwagon at random for ML2020>chose Mellow Yellow
Is anyone else not really excited for Newton's Cradle? Seems a little gimmicky
>>100634510Do we even know what it is yet?
>>100634713There's a little preview in the corner at the end of the funnel racing video.
>>100635366Oh neat, didn't notice that. Looks like it's about timing your return to the cradle and getting a full knock to stay going as long as possible.
>>100639184that looks like it's going to take forever
>>100639184Nah, it has distance markers on it, it's going to be how far you can reach from the push
>>100634510I thought the half-pipe seemed a bit gimmicky and overly random but I liked it enough I'll give the cradle a chance la
How is your marble doing, anon?
>>100641694Razzy hasn't even begun to peak.
>>100641694I'm actually in the hospital right now with Sublime after his latest suicide attempt.
>>100640626only the first bounce back counts probably
>>100641694Prim isn't competing ;_;
CAM ON OCEANICSWIN SAM FAKIN EVENTS*BANG BANG*
Ok /marble/, as was mentioned earlier the /sp/ team for 4chan Cup is having a marble player again and they are letting us decide the design aesthetic the player has.Since the deadline is so soon I only included the teams and several of the other designs that were used for the /sp/erb owl team. Way it's going to work is tallying up the votes for the first and second choice, probably 2 points for each primary pick and 1 for the secondary, and whatever has the most wins. Also quickly polling on the player nameGoing to give 24 hours or so to vote for thishttps://forms.gle/dEyHNbqoXr8tTvY66
>>100650113do we really have to sign in?
>>100650256Yes, just following what they did for the regular poll
Oh shit Marble League is back tomorrow isn't it?
>>100659350Big week ahead of us.
>>100650113voted for the legend RN3
Going to give a few more hours for the poll
>>100650113>marythis shoud be the obvious choice
>>100665616RN3, despite not being a marble, is the best representative of Marble Mentality.
Still waiting for a tiebreakGoing to give a few hours for that and if it doesn't happen I'll tiebreak it
>>100672124Oh God the suspense is killing me
>>100672124I swear to god if any of you voted for o'reddit
>>100672831I don't think anyone did lol
>>100673545you'd be surprised how many faggots could be lurking
CAM ON RN3
AHAHAHAHAHAHAOH NO NO NO NO
>>100677459COME ON /MARBLE/ THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO JOIN COMPETITIVE MARBLE RACING COMMENTATE THE FARMER'S LEAGUE
Thank you very much for voting. We had a four-way tie that was eventually broken up with Team Primary, Team Momo and Oceanics, and votes can be seen in the original linkCongratulations to the successful, controversial and legendary Red Number 3 for being the aesthetic representative for /marble/ for the 4chan Summer Cup. It should be noted that we also decided to keep the "Marblelympics" name as opposed to a marble specific one, but the managers can put any name on the back of the jersey they want (such as "RN3" or "Not A Marble") as long as the player itself is named after the Marblelympics/Marble League. Also requesting the #3 jersey if possible obviouslyThis design will likely be swapped for another design for the next 4chan Cup if the marble player is in again, and it would be polled again
>>100677900surprised oceanics got so many votes, but i'm glad the undisputed GOAT is our representative
