Good afternoon troops,We are now into planning and prep mode for the 4chan World Cup and just wanted to touch base and see how everyone was feeling regarding the team. This is probably the last time we can make changes so I wanted to make sure we were all happy with what we have right now. If there any issues with the team or an aspect of the team we you don't like, let me know and if it's a glaring issue that enough people are bringing up then we'll address. The roster will not be changing however, this will only be changing between cups.Meanwhile I'm working on the stadium and I am still in need of images to be used in the stadium so any memes or images you feel should be displayed in the stadium, add them in here. Also I know there was an idea regarding making a "VEE ESS TEE" chant, I'm happy to make this but I need your help to provide voices for the chant so you can submit a vocaroo recording and post it here or you can send me a recording to email@example.com
>>630648I'd include picrelated somehow, or any of the classic meme EU3 screenshots like blobhemia
>>630749>>630758>>630759Regarding the recording of the chant, there's a few idea's around floating around, but I think if we go for something easy like the "U-S-A!" chant but as "VEE-ESS-TEE!" so if you fancy recording something, submit something like "VEE-ESS-TEE" 3 times and that should be enough. Here's a rough example;https://voca.ro/14xTAnsRyywD
>>630648So how exactly is the summer cup gonna work?
>>630648I suggested this. I can do some more edits if anons sugests anything good, but this is sadly the largest crop of the original I have, so the text can't be expanded upon. 100 000 ahn sent to aid chinese at library was the only one that I had a game-related idea for.I know Roland didn't live in the L-corp nest, but I just find it funny since many thought he was an A
>>631481https://implyingrigged.info/wiki/2021_4chan_World_CupThey're going to throw 64 names into a hat, pull them out in groups of 4, we play a round robin in our group, and if we don't suck, we move on to the 32-team single elimination phase.
We're up against it!(Anyone but /vrpg/)
>>631489I've included that image, fella.
Does /vst/ have its own ball (like football) yet in the pack?
>>632294Not yet. Dunno if it's been discussed yet, think the manager is working on just the stadium just now.
>>630648How much do we drink every time we get dabbed on?
>>632776Enough to forget.
>>632776I drink no matter if we win or lose. Usually three beers and a glass of whiskey
>>632752If /vst/ doesn't have a ball I know in the >>>>>>>>>>/vgl/ their is a D20 or is that a bit too /tg/?
>>632294>>632752>>632793I vote pylon ball
>>632776Honestly, barring a lone night out with my coworkers at my previous workplace where I couldn't finish my drink, I haven't actually had anything to drink in over 6 years now.Win or lose, I'll drink in our name though.
>>632752Maybe a starsector AI core? I don't even play starsector but they have big threads on here
>>632780>>632824Had the idea of using the teams discord channel to have a post match dram if we win a game. Bring the fans together.>>632832>>632797Regarding balls, I'll see what I've got time for, I'm struggling to get this stadium finished in time but that's my top priority, that and >testing.I thought about pylon ball but we've got 2 SC reps in the team already, so maybe the AI core would be a good shout. Would a poll be beneficial here?
>>632890Aye, we ought to celebrate in style whenever we do well.>Would a poll be beneficial here?Do it. Fully expect the pylon and the AI core to be the top 2 options though.
If we need a poll then we need more ideas for a ball, because at the moment we only have;Pylon ballAlpha AI Core ball
>>630648Im happy to write some chants for /vst/
>>633516YOU ARE MY GHANDINUCLEAR GHANDIYOU MAKE ME HAPPYWHEN YOU SCORE GOALS SMASHED /WGS/IN THE FRIENDLYPLEASE DONT TAKEMY GHANDIFROM METo the tune of you are my sunshine
>>633513Only thing I can think of is some kind of helmet, but that's not as interesting as the other two.
>>633522That actually made me laugh.>>633516How do you mean "write some chants"?Also here is the stadium just now, what are people's thoughts?
>>633522HE'S BLACKHE'S REDHE'S GOT NO FUCKING HEADKANE LIVESSSSSS!KNAE LIVESSSSSS!
>>630648Are the images for the commercial border things around the field or are they going somewhere else?
>>633631Nah, they're for added decoration for the stadium itself, see >>633579
>>633513Along the same lines as a pylon ball, I'd prefer a probe or drone for more minerals.
>>633579Looking good lad
>>633513i remember it being brought up when these threads first cropped up, but perhaps punishing bird from LC? It's pretty much a round ball already, and its whole schtick is it "punishes" those who touch it, let alone kick it around the pitch
>>633853I support the bird getting kicked around.
>>633853Kick the bird
>>633513Baneling ball? Still starcraft though.
Ideally we'd use a non-rep but time is short.We'll run a poll on Friday and close it on Sunday, get yer suggestions in now.
>>630648Are there any memes needed for players? Maybe a meme about the dozens of HOI4 threads the kids made a couple of months ago. This would be more specific for this board. Or are there memes taken from other teams like /4xg/? There is a lot of overlap in that case.>>632832I ike this idea.
>>634734I think we're full now, between the last thread and this one.We were needing them for the board for the stadium ( see >>633579 ), but that's sorted now. What we need now is the "VEE ESS TEE" recordings for the chant.That and ball suggestions.
>>630831https://voca.ro/1dWYpxuaWulvNot the greatest, but let me know if it's good enough.
>>634787That's fine mate, cheers.
>>630648Any of you planning on playing we are football over the weekend? Looks kind of bland visually.
>>634855The only thing I'd be interested in is the custom league/team aspect.
>>633579Looking good.Replace the anime with W3/FTAdd some nukes.
What are we thinking Kane will be this time around?
>>635406Some /co/ head probably knowing how Kane goes
Better or worse?
>>635456The more I look at it, the more I hate it. We'll go back to >>633579 simple and clean.
>>634734>>634773If we add a HoI player, it's going to be the pony mod, because there is something so symbolic about this timeline that the horsefuckers would make the best mod.
>>635735Go back to your board
>>635775go back to the TNO thread
>>635775>>635781Go to a room you two
>>635735Could there be an FE character instead?
>>635854If we can get /vrpg/ on board. We can run a set of Christmas Cavs or male and female versions of an avatar character and call them>Strategyand>RPG
>>635735>>635854If you lads are talking about new players for the roster, we're not taking on more players until the next cup where we'll do a new roster poll.
>>633513Kinda grasping at straws, but what about a strategic globe? Might be hard to give enough detail to make it worthwhile, though.
>>635987I'm struggling to find an AI Core 3d Model and I'm not the most competent to make a model from scratch.
Could we also have a smiling head of Kane as a ball?
>>636004only for games when there's another Kane variant playing
>>633513>If we need a poll then we need more ideas for a ballAge of Mythology relic?Model might be too small and old though.
Good morning a/vst/ists,We're finalising prep for the world cup, below is the poll for the Stadium Name and Ball Type, this will close by Sunday just so I'm not chasing myself for final touches. If you still wanna help with the "VEE ESS TEE" chant then see the previous vocaroo recordings, this is something quite unique to our team and it's good to see some lads getting involved.

>>636213btw op these are ideas for the ball!
>>637498This is the best I can do you via Blender atm>>637845I've added the options, dunno how much traction they'll gain due to the poll already half way done, but they're in.
>>637896If possible, instead of the sky you should give the skybox the look of a tactical room like in RUSE
>>633579Well 3 chants now with: vee ess tee>>633522>>633581Next chant:I WOKE UP THIS MORNING FEELING FINEIVE GOT /VST/ ON MY MINDPINKYS GOT US PLAYING THE WAY THAT WE SHOULDSOMETHING TELLS ME IM INTO SOMETHING GOODChant 4:VEE-ESS-TEE VEE-ESS-TEEVEE-ESS-TEEs THE TEAM FOR MEWITH A KNICK KNACK PADDY WHACKGIVE A DOG A BONEWHY DONT /HIS/ JUST FUCK OFF HOMEChant 5:4CHANNEL IS YOURS, 4CHANNEL IS YOURS4 POSTS AN HOUR, ARE YOU FUCKING SUREChant 6:EL PRESIDENTES MAGICHE WEARS A MAGIC HATHE COULDVE PLAYED FOR /V/BUT HE SAID NO FUCK THATHE PASSES WITH HIS LEFT FOOTHE PASSES WITH HIS RIGHTAND WHEN WE WIN THE CUPWE'LL SING THIS SONG ALL NIGHT

>>637896Looks good, but I wonder how lighting will work on it.
Afternoon troops,Poll is closed now and the results are in;Our homeground will be referred to as "Armchair General" and our ball will "Punishing Bird".I had a look for 3d models for Punishing Bird but can't find shit, so I'm looking to the LobCo/LoR lads to gimme a hand locating something.Cheers guys, have a good Sunday.
>>639929bird is the word
>>639929oh shit the bird actually won
>>639929I did not expect that at all, neat.
>>640356>>640362>lobcorpsYou people get 4000 posts a thread, how could you NOT win?
>>640448i mean silent orchestra barely got the votes to make it onto the team, so i expected the same for this
>>640448No advertisement in threads so I didn't expect it to get in, and I didn't vote for it at least. We already have something.>>639929If we can get ahold of the anon behind https://www.pixiv.net/en/artworks/77874615 then we would have a model. If he doesn't show then I'll try to understand blender to get something out.
What's the bird from?
>>640480LobCorp/Library of Ruina
>>639929thoughts? got this made quickly
>>640719Seems fine to me.
>>640935heres an update on it
>>639929Wooo, LCbros represent!>>640464Holy shit that's me ahahahI haven't been working on models in a while since my files got corrupted and don't really know how to send stuff to you guys, but I'll try and put together a small file for you guys to see if anything can come of it.
>>641383>>640938which should we go with then if two anons are making a ball
>>641409Dunno but I got my file working. Also puffed up the bird into more of a ball and the model is already pretty much done, if you want I could animate it wiggling around or something. Up to you guys.
>>641414Regardless of what you guys pick I have the file right here. Sorry I'm an amateur so it's just a .blend file, but I made it wiggle if you can find a way to import that into divegrass somehow. If you need any other models I've got loads.https://mega.nz/file/LzI3TaDC#oK-8paB4s-RXRgXJzVTWJvNTu4MY9CBJYcYv1HOfhvw
>>641427I can't seem to load the file in Blender, can you export it as an .obj file?
>>641414That's done the trick. Thanks very much for your help, hopefully you'll be tuning in to see it in action.You have earned 1 extra ration token for the trenches. Many thanks a/vst/ist
>>641414>if you want I could animate it wiggling around or somethingBalls in PES cannot animate, they are static models without any rigging.
>>640448To be fair, we haven't had threads that big since april. This week's tread won't even reach 2k
>>642228I know nothing about the game(s). Hell, I've only ever known one person who was even remotely interested in lobcorp. How are your threads getting so big? Is it a combination of the slower nature of the board and me vastly underestimating the series' popularity?
>>642237theres around 150 posters in the threads, and usually a lot of discussion on gameplay, paired with the slow board, that leads to a lot of posts, the 5.5k posts was from the ending update of the game, so naturally there'd be a massive amount of discussion going on.
>>642244Makes sense. Honestly really glad it won the vote, it's something different from the rest of the team while also being nicely recognizable.
>>642237The odd thread on /v/ that doesn't get deleted can usually reach bump limit so they are usually quite speedy both on here and there. There is a bit of shitposting sure, but it's basically in line with what you find on here rather than on /v/ Paradox and humankind threads notwithstanding. I can't honestly say, but weekly content for a bit over a year and having a complex if not even convoluted story and a fair difficulty requiring a lot of changes in setup and strategy means that you get a lot to post about. It isn't that big, but people that care are very dedicated. Also the reason why a thread reached something like 4.7k posts was because people were very much divided on the original ending to Library of Ruina, and there was a lot of discussion around it.
