The 4chan Cup is a Pro Evolution Soccer online tournament series which started in 2011. All the matches are AI versus AI. Humans manage each team with CSIII modding skills, creating their tactics and giving input during games, making substitutions and tactical changes as they see fit; The players of each team have the facets of the board they represent. The creator of this competition is a tripfag called: GermanBro !!i9X8R/z42Rt. Current commissioner is DrBorisG !!9Egy5BjxCD. All this other tripfags are part of the judges: Gracen Ivorinne !SyespadaHQ, tottori !!sRN5AxsnGLL, Sexcopter !!DmLjci16Djv. Every year there are 4 tournaments, one per season.
The 4chan Cup started in the 6th of August of 2011 (the same day in which a nigger fucked an elephant). In this first edition there were only 16 teams: /a/, /adv/, /b/, /ck/, /fa/, /fit/, /g/, /int/, /k/, /mu/, /s/, /soc/, /sp/, /tv/, /v/, /x/. It lasted from August 6 to August 9, 2011. It was an overnight sensation, as dozens of /sp/-goers and denizens of other boards flocked to Germanbro's stream. The winner of this first tournament was /a/, which made /v/irgins cry like mad gaymers they are.
Picture of the tournament:
The 2012 Winter Cup was the most corrupt cup until the date and was also played by 16 teams, /k/ won, so /v/irgins cried again and tried to sabotage the cups wiki. This tournaments MVP was Messi, that argentinian midget who is in love with Cristiano. The nerd known as Messi managed to score 3.65 goals per match, which is the ammount of people who die of coconuts every year divided by 41.095. The new incorporations to this edition were: /co/, /tg/, /o/ and /jp/.

The 4chan Cup Committee (4CCC) was accused of corruption by many losers. It also participed in the Bracket Scandal:
Following the initial group stages of the 2012 4chan Summer Cup, PES2012 selected the brackets for the knockout stages. This had been done before with the 2012 4chan Spring Babby Cup, so no one expected the massive backlash as provided by the random bracketing.
At the conclusion of the group stage, PES 2012 randomly selected the draw for the knockout stages. To make things worse, the game placed top performers like /m/, /sp/, and /toy/ in the preliminary rounds. Accusations of RIGGED flew around 4chan, some /sp/ supporters vandalized the wiki and posted what they considered the rightful standings, /pol/ and /int/ released a joint statement blaming "The Jews" for "starting a false-flag operation to make the Aryan GermanBro look worse than Hitler," and /vg/'s empty stadium was filled with supporters on all sides bemoaning or celebrating their team's placement while the hometown vendors sold booze and lol'd at the proceedings.
After witnessing a night of furious petitioning, bitching, moaning, wiki vandalizing and a few flaming bags of dog poop left on the steps of random German people in the neighborhood, the secretive 4CCC convened to discuss how to proceed. In the end, GermanBro decided to "rejigger" the brackets within PES, giving byes to the top-ranked teams and changing around the matchups in the preliminaries. GermanBro also promised to actually sort out the tiebreaker and placement rules before the Cup starts next time.
This decision was not without controversy either, as some lambasted GermanBro for giving into a minorities demands, while others accused /sp/, the board most outraged at the randomly drawn bracket, of attempting to rig the cup. Still others were upset that, while the new bracket addressed some of the primary problems regarding byes, the two group winners that did not receive byes, /co/ and /n/ were matched against each other in the preliminaries. GermanBro has stated that, while he properly seeded the boards, he failed to match them up properly. However, seeing the anger that met both versions of the bracket, he refused to make any further changes.
