Dear /int/

I come to you with the question whether you'd like (I know I do) and help come up with a team in the ponyrelated Interchan Cup
see >>/meta/123389

It's basically shenanigans with an AI team we assign /int/related names, and handle the kits, tactics, goal horn, anthem, wiki-backstory and such.

Here's the late night list update.

I decided to include the reserves list (>>141384) from now on. If you (AustroSpike) ever did any more work on the reserves you have full control over, or have something to add, just tell me that you want that or that thing on the list.

OK, the two of us has done our stuff internally for the last day, and I finally figured out of the card system, but here's another update. We're getting close now.

And to everyone: We need three more pictures for Foreign Greetings, Dub Complaining and Combined Thread; in what is most likely to be a late (or maybe last) call for contributing.

Got plenty to choose from fitting pics for Dub Complaining. Which are basically captions with funny gerdub lines. Kalas suggested this iirc.
The server with the OP pic of the German and Polish thread seems to be down. Anybody got it saved?

Okay, I can use that pic. I'll add it my list.

By the way, I found something rather... strange... in the description for Dub Complaining. I don't think the part with "praising (...) dub studios" fit well with a player that is representing complaints against dubs.

...Or maybe it was about the original English dubbing/voicing studio? In the latter case, I still think we need to phrase it better.

>The server with the OP pic of the German and Polish thread seems to be down. Anybody got it saved?
Sorry. I cannot find it on Derpibooru, and there's no countrypony threads on /pic/ or /art/.

That's not really a significant translation screw up. I'd go with "Winter Ade Tag". Its failure is way more popular.
>> No. 142031
File 134565934934.jpg - (72.46KB , 1312x439 , Ponychan Int attempted addition to 22nd of August update.jpg )
Here's my attempt at straightening things up a bit. It was sort of capped before >>142029, but still.

The songs do have a tendency to ditch translation accuracy in favour of making it sound good, I'll admit that. And Winter Ade Tag's low quality stays in sharp contrast to the brilliant renditions of At The Gala (Auf der Gala?) and Art Of The Dress.

But if you really want to show translation mistakes... you could try with the Swedish dub's "Ont i tummen/Thumb Ache" occurence, possibly the single-biggest translation error in the history of FiM and one so big that even I am complaining. Alternately "Kram med tomtebloss/Hugs with New Years' sparkles" from the same dub, or the time that the Russian dub translated Ursa Major into something along the lines of "the big Ursa-something".

But I would prefer to keep it in good nature, and I'm always been more of a Dub Praise kind of guy.

>The songs do have a tendency to ditch translation accuracy in favour of making it sound good, I'll admit that.
If they changed it to something pointless to get the correct number of syllables, that would've been okay, but the syllables are still wrong, despite the complete mess of a translation that sounds worse than a more direct translation.
Also, At the Gala and Art of the Dress are both terrible in german. Every song is. But no more derailing.

I think Winter Ade Tag would've been understood by more people and would've fit better, but it's your decision.

Straaange. In such confusing cases, there is only one thing to do: change it to something better (which has already been done), and then pretend the strangeness never happened.

>How about [pic]

>How about something dramatical dystopian like "Only the dead can know peace from this evil... MLPFiM dubs"
I don't think it would fit well with something dramatical. I thought I explained it well already, since there are lots of people on Ponychan that loves the English version and despises their dubs.

I think that description would heavily contradict the entire reason for Dub Praise's existense. I'm trying to keep the descriptions of the two Dubs neutral, so that a man can pick his favourite of the two without automatically disliking the other alternative.

My brain is starting to feel slow now since it's so late in the evening, so it's not the best time for me to write new descriptions or to discuss important matters. I'll still be awake for at least another hour, though.

Here's my morning attempt at doing the Dub brothers. The plan is to describe them, so that people can identify (and possibly recognise themselves) with at least one of them, without claiming that any opinion is an undeniable fact.

If this doesn't work, then nothing will.

As for the tactics you (AustroSpike) sent me on E-mail, it appears to be good. What I'm imagining as a tactic, relies on a strong defense that is helped by the midfield, a midfield that can be of good use around the field, and good forwarders (plus Poland) that can strike up good attacks with a twist or two.

I've made a thread on /pic/ (>>/pic/872669) requesting the last two pictures, so I may or may not need someone to look over it while I take a break from Ponychan for at least an hour.

First off, there were only three people on /int/ who was interested in this in the first place.

Second of, we did our damned best trying to pick players from all around the board.

And why should I go for it for any other board in first instance but my primary board?
>> No. 142350

Because there may be more people interested on another board. Also, because of that, the team could represent a bigger part of the board.

last thing for me to say, more teams ~ more suspense and matches to watch.

Not like any of this discussion had any point since we're almost done with the setup, it is up to the organizer now, we could easily retreat any given time, and I dont think the other boards with teams or without teams would be better off if these 3 people didn't do jack on the /int/team.

There's some new information now over in the /meta/ thread. NBD said that it's at the moment best to stick to the 4chan Cup tactics system, and that Lilly didn't have any time to write a coherent message to the boards yet. Just felt like mentioning it here.

Also, that means that we can (most likely) move along with the tactics, if you (AustroSpike) have anything to say about it.

I tried to use Minecraft to make a first draft of the 50x50 logo that's also required.

Anything to say? And if there is agreement about this already, we need someone to turn it into an actual small-logo. I'm primarily hinting at Kalas here, but that shouldn't exclude other people from trying.

Following up later on today, is me trying to give the players correct positions.
>> No. 143023
I learnt my description change for Dubs Get is nonsense. Let's change back to "getting is hard" or whatever it was.

I'm fine with the icon stuff given we ever need it.

So after consideration why not come up with a setup accroding to implyingrigged rules? We can still keep our basic line-up as back up (to maybe work on in a different way required)
Looking at it atm.

Sounds good. But as I said, we still need someone to turn into an actual 50x50 (or 52x52 if we're including the black border) pixel picture; and I have no idea how to do it.

>So after consideration why not come up with a setup accroding to implyingrigged rules?
Almost every setup I've done so far was meant to match with the Implying Rigged requirements. The Gold-Silver-Bronze thing, the cards, the strategy, all of it.

I know. I'm just now more inclined than before to think it may actually be like this.
So it has become worth taking into consideration for me as well.
So you're talking bringing out start eleven and exchangers into this
>Goalkeeper (GK), Defenders (SWP, CB, LB, RB), Midfielders (DMF, CMF, LMF, RMF, AMF), Forwards (LWF, RWF, SS, CF)
Flicking skills seems a rather player- not AI-fitted skill. I'd go for one more S01 instead. The Playstyles come across good to me, I guess I see what you're doing there.

My alternative idea

:{D without S11 but with P06
DMF gets either P08 or S01 (S-card would increase overall abilities). If P08, CMF gets S01, but loses P15, If S01, CMF can keep P15.
