|/vg/ - Video Game Generals|
Ever since breaking off from older brother /v/, /vg/ has dutifully carried on the time-honored pledge of all boards that are vidya: talking about everything except vidya. If you're /vg/, that means gachashit, weebshit, and gay fucking shit. Sometimes all three at once.
The football team is proudly no different.
A veteran of the 4chan Cup, with a history as bumpy and dubious as the board it represents, sometimes >we're good, and good enough to win a Cup. How that happens is anyone's guess. Most of the time >we're as bad as the board >we claim to represent, because everyone's been shitposting and bickering long enough that they've forgotten we're here to play football.
Welcome to /vg/ F.C., the team representing the board of /vg/ - Video Game Generals. Enjoy your stay, and remember to git gud.

Main article: /vg/ Roster
Since the 2013 4chan Autumn Babby Cup, the /vg/ League has been the way /vg/ has determined its roster for cups. Initially, only medal players were decided with this method, with other players being chosen by way of contacting the board's fastest generals. However, the /vg/ League now determines the entire /vg/ roster, with a meta player being a permanent gold (currently Git Gud), while the gold and both silvers are determined by the top four teams in the League. So far, thirteen incarnations of the /vg/ League have been completed.

/v/ - Vidya Derby
|Since /vg/ is /v/'s little brother, some sibling rivalry is bound to ensue. Everything BUT Videogames vs. Everything BUT Videogames (in general form!), who will come out on top?
To date the all time record has /v/ winning 2 out of 4 official matches, with both of their wins coming in friendlies. However, /vg/'s lone win in the series came during an elite cup and served to relegate /v/. An unofficial friendly match was played between the two before the 2015 4chan Winter Cup, with /v/ winning 1–0, and both teams have met three times in each of the two Vidya Bowls. The fourth official Vidya Bowl came in the 2017 4chan Summer Cup group stage, three years to the last. /v/ got another early lead, but unfortunately /vg/ could not turn same magic they did long ago and only got an equalizer, which ended up being the difference between relegation and advancement. Of course, both teams went and completely shat the bed following their relegation.

|26 January 2020||/vg/||0–0||/v/|
The group draw placed /vg/ with a /co/ coming off its first ever elite knockout win, an /x/ that once again barely scraped by a Babby group, and the big brother. The first match was against /x/, who /vg/ had played exactly once before. After an entire half of offensive ineptitude on /vg/'s end, /x/ scored the first goal through Cthulhu; a very quick rebound-goal answer by Git Gud and new goalkeeper BANE? saving many /x/ attempts kept it 1–1 despite /vg/ missing multiple great attempts. Next up was /co/, who, once again, /vg/ had played exactly once ever. Fortunately, things seemed to be going much better this time, as NAGA RAIDAAAAAA introduced himself in six minutes and through the 63rd minute, it was 3–1 /vg/ with /co/'s only goal being in extremely late stoppage time. Unfortunately, /vg/ blew a 3–1 lead, letting Hope Corgi and /co/lette steal a point from them with a 3–3 draw. This did make it clear what /vg/ had to do to advance, however: Beat /v/. Who had just lost their previous match 0–6, proving themselves the joke that never stops being funny. Simple enough, right? Of course not. The latest Vidya Bowl was an even bigger disappointment than the last one, and although /vg/ were the better team, it wasn't anywhere near enough to save the match from becoming the only 0–0 draw of the entire cup. /vg/ finished their group stage with three draws, and normally this would mean they would be looking at a Spring Babby Cup on a new PES. Suffice to say, this was not a normal group. /co/ got their own 2–0 lead against /x/ in the final match, and all seemed lost for /vg/. Then /x/ woke the fuck up, Goatman and /x/-tan scoring two each, and in thirty minutes /co/ had went from top of the group to dead in the water. By, almost literally, the grace of God, /vg/ remained ELITE despite multiple things going against them. Sounds familiar, huh? They also joined the likes of /toy/ and /jp/ as teams that advanced from a group stage without a single win.
Entering the knockout stage, /vg/'s questionable group stage performance led several to dismiss their chances of going anywhere (SOUNDS FAMILIAR), and it didn't help that their opponent was /biz/, a team that had just relegated the biggest team in the Cup. Intense memeing arose about whether /vg/ would "throw" again. And then once the match actually started, those memeing were quickly forced to shut the fuck up as finally-a-medal HOPE and Naga made the score 2–0 /vg/ at halftime and 3–0 shortly after. /biz/'s miracle corner goal failed to stop a complete slaughter, 4–1 to /vg/, and just like that /vg/ were back in the final day, the fourth in their last five cups. And since the Summer of '18 parallels couldn't stop, /vg/ were once again playing /jp/ in the quarterfinals. Far from being a blowout, though, it was /jp/ who controlled most of the match. But like /x/ before them, they failed to get anything past BANE?, and Git Gud finally got gud again at the 89th minute. /vg/ won 1–0, and were officially guaranteed at worst their fourth TOP FOUR finish in the last five cups. So who was up next? Why, it was /out/, at last a fresh opponent, and one whose lead striker was a pissed-off Smokey the Bear. /vg/ scored first through still-gud Git Gud, and managed to reduce a formidable /out/ attack to nearly nothing. Anon's Happy Floote, Smokey's partner in crime, equalized quickly after halftime, but HOPE scored his third goal of the cup and saw /vg/ through to the 2020 4chan Winter Cup Final on a 2–1 victory. So what did they do against their next opponent, new """""""""""""""rivals""""""""""""""" (and also fresh opposition) /pol/?
Nothing. It didn't even take ten minutes for /vg/ to turn back into a pumpkin, and the President of the United States added insult to injury by scoring as a nonmedal. /vg/ were nowhere to be found the entire match, and it ended in a 0–2 defeat to /pol/. /vg/ had completed their Elite medal collection, but even the fact that /pol/ were clearly superior and it was very quickly over could not stop this final from being painful. BANE? won the Golden Glove, his stats padded by a never-ending blitzkrieg, and /vg/ can still take solace in being ELITE and continuing on from two of the most insanely good back-to-back calendar years in the Cup's history by making a final. Hopefully, the coming Summer Cup is just as good. Or better.
