This is a timeline of significant events in 4chan Cup history. For the sake of precision, the dates of many teams' formations is recorded as the date when some sort of significant presence was placed on the wiki (roster, team page, description, etc.). Some dates are sourced from /m/'s archive, as this hosts some of the oldest permanent records of 4chan Cup discussion. In cases where dates are not known, approximations are acceptable.

  • The Cull was announced, disqualifying six teams (/adv/, /c/, /out/, /p/, /t/, and /y/) from competition until after Summer and being disallowed to compete with a manager until after Autumn, due to investigations from each of these teams showing lack of interest by the board or management in the Cup. The aforementioned teams could still compete in Autumn as autopilots if enough fan interest could be proven by their boards by then. /out/ and /p/ would go on to find sufficient fan interest after the Summer Cup to secure entry into the 2017 Autumn Babby Cup.

30th

  • In an amendment to the Cull, /c/ and /y/ were removed from the list of culled teams due to showing sufficient interest to merit removal from the list, and instead were placed on probation, along with /w/, in a new board interest policy that may result in those teams being placed in stasis should no significant improvement in board interest be found after a Cup by either of these teams.
