Wyvern Reinforcement is the closest thing to a proper strategy rep FE could put in so why not try that, it can't possibly be cursed on two teams right?

Poll is up, we'll keep it active for a week so it will close 22/03.

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS!
You vote on each player with "KEEP", "KICK" or "OTHER". "OTHER" means you have an idea on who to replace the player with so at the end of the week I will show the result of the poll, if a player get's a majority of "KICK" or "OTHER" then obviously they will be dropped and we will run a seperate poll to establish who the replacement is, this can be done for multiple players e.g;

Nuclear Launch Detected - OTHER - Highfleet Rep

El Presidente - OTHER - Highfleet Rep

Etc, etc.

If a medal is stripped of their status we will vote on who should gain medal status once the roster has been completed.

It feels a bit weird to be playing the game without watching much in the way of real divegrass, but I'm steadily trundling along in my first ever save with VFB Lubeck in 21. Dunno if the team would have any hope without its star player, that's for sure, and his personality is a godsend.

Just a heads up, the Tag Team Cup kicks off tomorrow and /vst/ & /vm/ have made a team called /apm/ who will be playing tomorrow.
Hope to see some of the lads out there.

Poll is still up, vote for who you want to see (or not see) going into Spring whilst management uses Monday Night Futbol to try some things out. We'll aim to try some new builds so tune into that to see what you think and voice your opinions on the team.

started a save with trabzonspor 2 weeks ago. I'm using the around the world db by davey and the realism db by daveincid. Adding the big asian and african league always leads to a little bit more interesting transfer market and more realistic careers.

Aside from that i've started using this no-attributes skin to get out of certain habits. At some point its so easy to read attributes to find the perfect players for your squad that the challenge disappears. Without knowing the exact attributes im much more experimental in using players and more observant of how they actually contribute. Its also more different to create a balanced squad, its preferable to keep various multi-valent players around. For any jaded veteran i can really recommend it.
>>
>>986128
criticisms that its unrealistic that i cant distinguish a dribbling 20 player from a dribbling 16 player are unwarranted, as the player report indicates extremely high attributes. knowing whether players are bad/ok/decent/good at something is much more realistic than having exact numeric values attached to everything.
>>
I'm double-retarded and forgot that the wiki doesn't account for DST, /apm/ is up next.

"Cursed Franchise" was already mentioned as a name for the Advance Wars rep. You could get more specific with something like "Herald/Harbinger of Wars", referring to the fact the first game's release got delayed when 9/11 happened then its reboot got delayed when Ukraine got invaded.

- Aesthetics are about done, I'm going to try and get some more colouring into our team to make them unique (e.g. Wololo's headband with /vst/ colours)

If you want to help the team and contribute this season then let us hear your predictions. Which player are you looking forward to seeing play?
Who do you hope /vst/ play?

Have suggestions for chants, let us know.

Attention A/vst/ists, this is your Propaganda Officer speaking! As you well know, today marks our long-awaited return to the field of battle, and the beginning of our revenge for the insults inflicted upon us this past Autumn. Our opponents are many, their capabilities strong. Many do not expect us to survive this campaign, but we shall not waver! Kane has placed his trust in each and every one of you, and we shall not let him down! Take your positions, and when you hear the signal, storm the pitch, overrun the bleachers, drown the chat and make these fools rue the day they thought they could conquer the indomitable might of VEE ESS TEE!

Today is likely to be one of the most important games. /b/ is some of our strongest competition.

Best to look at every match ahead as the hardest until it's over, but I'd be lying if I said that win didn't feel real good.
>>
>>1038780
Our first performance was great, but the rest of the group is still no joke. Personally think the match against /c/ is going to be the group decider for us.
>>
>>1039018
yeah it was good defense on top of good offense from gandhi who's AI was definitely aggressive that game
>>
>>1038956
>>1039018
As the casters said, /b/'s been running the same trick for too long, and they were going to get theirs sooner or later. I'm very glad it was us to do it, because now any changes they make are the rest of the group's problem. But I shouldn't undersell the magnitude of this victory, either: we are currently the 2nd-place team behind /pol/ on both points/gd/gf and for the Golden Boot, while /b/ has suddenly become the favorite to spoon if they don't get themselves together in very short order.

Looking forward, our path is clear, but we should never assume it to be an easy one. Unlike last Autumn we still have our safety margin, but we are still in what could very easily be a group of death. /mu/ is another old-as-dirt team, a perennial yo-yo, and we have drawn the short straw of going into two games blind. /c/ is a team that went from a complete joke to a consistent performer over the last few years, but has fallen on some hard times since Winter '21. Still, they had a very good run in the World Cup, and we would be remiss to write them off. Same goes for /gd/: we have defeated them before, but they are a star-winning team, and their victory over /mu/ shows that they are still a threat.

Keep your helmets strapped on, boys: there's plenty of war left to fight.
>>
>>1039212
>and we have drawn the short straw of going into two games blind

Wow, /mu/-/gd/ was so boring I forgot it happened.,

>>983540

Seconding having the default horn playing first, but having more custom goalhorns. I feel like it adds more flavor and character to the team.
>>
>>1040286
Whilst I agree, bear in mind Wololo's goalhorn does play the default.
>>
If the board wills it, then it shall be done, however I do think we're at a fine balance just now.

I would maybe say if anything, we want to give Gandhi a hat trick horn but as always I am but a conduit for the board's will.
>>
>>1040908
PES seems to just pick one of the two at the start of the game and run with him. Personally, I don't think Gandhi needs a trick horn, though if we go with it, perhaps Blow it Up could work.

For Kane, again I think it's good as is, but if we make changes, I'd say use Act on Instinct as a brace-and-up horn, then move No Mercy to an alternate victory anthem for either shut-outs or GD 3+ blowouts where Kane was MVP.
>>
I guess should it be set to a poll how other anons want to go about music going forward? The No Mercy anthem isn’t a bad idea. Also seeing how much Gandhi scores, him having a hat trick horn could be good.
>>
>>1041110
>Blow it Up
I'm actually a bit torn between the original and the official remaster, but I think they'd come in best right before the first iteration of "a nuclear device"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fV3USe9dlU&t=63s
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5dxWlb5ExY&t=53s
Timing can be done with better precision in editing, but this should get the idea across. The remaster has better guitar, but the original has a little more of a classy swagger.

>No Mercy/Act on Instinct
To reiterate, I'm unconvinced of this change, but there are a lot of covers of Act on Instinct out there to choose from if we want to look into it further.

>I get the impression hattricks with Kane can be much rarer than complete shutouts and GD 3+ blowouts in PES
Most likely yes, particularly since we split our shots among all 4 medals to a much greater degree than some other boards. Also requiring it on a Kane MVP would tighten that to a pretty significant degree, though, and frankly we'd need a whole round of >testing just to see which is more common.

>makes it one more opportunity for regular goalhorn to be heard outside of >99% and Wololo scoring
I'm going to FTFY that to "less", and that really is the crux of the issue. Since Wololo has his gimmick, we can't afford to fall into /vrpg/'s trap of never hearing the default horn, or we might as well not have him, since the joke would lose its relevance. So let me pose the unasked question:

>Do we need to change the default horn?
There's been a consistent pressure for more custom horns ever since about the midpoint of the World Cup, and the main sticking point on that idea has always been "we need the default horn for Wololo". So, is the problem that the default horn isn't doing it for us anymore?

>>1041114
Yes, this is most certainly a matter for a poll. Most likely it'll be something we do off-season around the time of the roster vote, but we'll be sure to make it happen.
>>
Now that we’ve conquered /b/, what’s our hardest match this weekend? /mu/ had a pretty sleepy match, but it could’ve been bad luck on their end. Meanwhile, /c/ is a wildcard, since we haven’t seen them at all yet.
>>
>>1043573
We don’t play them this weekend, just /mu/ and /c/
>>
>>1043652
i think every match is equally as important until victory is achieved but difficulty wise /c/ is unpredictable since they haven’t had a match yet right
>>
>>1041452
Do you have any ideas for other default goalhorns?
>>
We go again tonight lads.

We face a known formidable foe. I will not lie to you, /mu/ has been successful in scrambling communications between the War Room and the pitch. This could be a very close game, but we will leave everything on the field this day and strike hard into the enemy.

This will be another day and another victory for /vst/.

See you tonight at 19:40 UTC

Our part in the groups stage is at an end, and now the final results lie in the hands of the other boards this next Friday.

Though this does bring up the potential of Man-of-the-Match victory anthems instead of more goalhorns, which would also solve the "too many goalhorns and the default isn't heard or is overshadowed" issue. I like the idea of Blow It Up being a Gandhi brace or hattrick, because "TIME IS RUNNING OUT!" in reference to the game time running out and the opposing team under pressure; the Naatu Naatu song is kinda ass as >>1063034 said, but the idea of putting the angry pajeet ranting bit at the start >>1063028 >>1063420 is an incredible idea for whatever we end up going with.
Give Wololo a ruse Man-of-the-Match victory anthem to match his ruse goalhorn, please.

With blow it up, I always thought of it as a 90+ goal horn, with time actually running out. The best way to have the normal goal horn heard would be to have it play no matter what on the first goal, as that would open up more possibilities for Kane music, without worry of the basic goalhorn not being heard enough. That would also open up if anons want the basic horn to be changed as well. MotM music changes could work, but it'll all come down to how the anons vote. I do agree about the angry pajeet bit being top tier, but I don't know what music we'd use to replace Naatu, since being a hat trick horn, it'd need to be more intense than Tanuk.
>>
>>1067089
>This needs to be updated with the lore story from this babby cup

Yeah, I'll get to it once I've worked the the proper patriotic fervor back up.
>>
>>1067099
>90+ goal horn
That would make it far too rare. I'd say that having it play after subs in the second half would make it more hearable yet still fitting.
>have it play no matter what on the first goal
So whatever extra goalhorns we have for anybody will be brace-and-up only? Even the Tunak Tunak remix will be brace-and-up? Is that what you're getting at? Something like Silent Orchestra goalhorn needs to be excluded from that, since it is already a super rare special occurrence if it ever happens in a cup
>more possibilities for Kane music
I want No Mercy in in some way. I remember somebody said it could work as a Kane MotM, but I think some other fitting condition like "Kane scores when the goal difference between the two teams are 2 or 3 in favor of /vst/" could work with the domination theme
>if anons want the basic horn to be changed
Personally I like it as it is
>all come down to how the anons vote
Yeah, I'm simply saying MotM victory anthems are an unexplored possibility as of now. They are something worth considering later.
>agree about the angry pajeet bit being top tier
Good. What if that ends up as a Gandhi comeback goalhorn instead? DO NOT REDEEM THAT MATCH WIN
>since being a hat trick horn, it'd need to be more intense than Tanuk
Comeback goalhorns are yet another unexplored option.

>So whatever extra goalhorns we have for anybody will be brace-and-up only? Even the Tunak Tunak remix will be brace-and-up? Is that what you're getting at?
Not brace and up, but its something I've seen other teams do when they have a lot of special goal horns, where the first goal of the match is the basic goalhorn, its not by player, but just the first goal of the game.
>That would make it far too rare
yeah, thats part of why it was a thought i had, but you'd never really hear it.

Just a quick note on the horns: the conditions aren't programmed into anything, the horns are named based on their conditions for playing, and the streamer plays them manually. I don't want to shut any ideas down, but it's important to be aware that the more esoteric we get in our horn conditions, the more we need to be ready for >Sou to fuck it up.
>>
>Kane MOTM Horn
>Gandhi 2+ Goals Horn
>Gandhi Hat Trick Horn
>/vst/ X-Goals down but come back horn
>Kane Hat-Trick Horn

Some of these are good ideas some of these are not. I don't think it's necessary to have a goal for every single eventuality as it means we might only hear a certain goal horn once per game. Should we diverse our music library? Sure.

Do we need 15+ goal horns? I don't think so.
